This mod overhauls thermal vision modes allowing them to be used in all conditions.
It is designed to work with any targeting pod or CROWS. The mod does NOT currently work with Night Vision Goggles. That will come with a future update.

This mod CAN be used Client Side.

Press B while in Vanilla DTV mode to bring up A3TI thermal vision modes.
Press B while in Vanilla NVG mode to bring up A3TI Fusion mode.

Mission makers can disable A3TI vision modes by placing the following command in a vehicle's init

this setVariable ["A3TI_Disable, true"];

Current Features:
Can be run Client Side

How To:
Select Vanilla DTV and press the B key to cycle through the A3TI Vision Modes

To use the Laser Target Marker (LTM), cycle to NVG or A3TI fusion mode, fire your laser, then press L
The LTM can only be seen in NVG or Fusion modes
You can change the LTM between Flashing and Steady modes with Ctrl+L
All controls are configurable via CBA keybinds

Known Issues:

Some Modded Tanks may have visual bugs for the driver. There is a CBA option to disable A3TI enhancements for tank drivers to mitigate this.

Can I repack this mod into our server mod pack? Our server owner only allows repacking when it comes to adding addons, And I really want to improve our server gameplay with your mod.

Mostly so everyone can see the LTM beam whenever you "Sparkle" something.

Are there any benefits of running A3TI on the server rather than only client side?

Man I'm really looking forward to when this works with NVG's for the NV/Thermal fusion. Makes me want something similar to real PSQ's

hateandcaffeine, first of all many thanks for your work. I'm tryin to figure out how to make black and white screeen when I'm using optic, to make it more realistic for AGM-65 ( A) guidance, and still couldn't find the way. Please, could you realise BW screen in your mod - it'll be very cool. Thanks in advance!
Please please please make night vision with COTI module, I beg hard ;_;

Hey I'm really looking forward to running this with my unit, however unfortunately thermal shielding on the Viper and CTRG Stealth uniforms no longer seem to function as intended, is it possible that you could make sure these uniforms show up as ambient temperature? Thanks.

Vanilla means base game with no mods. So "Vanilla Thermals" means standard arma thermals.
