BackpackOnChest - Redux

BackpackOnChest - Redux
An official rewrite and continuation of the original BackpackOnChest mod by DerZade. This mod allows you to have a backpack on your chest and on your back at the same time, with movement penalties. Great for parachutes!

Improvements from the original
  • Optimizations.
  • Support for variables associated with the backpack (for items such as the ACE Gunbag or TFAR backpack radios).
  • Transition to an easier development platform with the support of CBA and ACE macros.
  • Various other improvements.

Can I pack this mod into my unit's modpack?
Go ahead. If your unit's mod is published on the workshop / elsewhere other than say a FTP or HTTP repository for sync, all I ask is that you leave a link back to this workshop page or the github repository but its completely optional since this mod is licensed under the MIT license.

Does this work with better inventory?

It still complains about original mod being a dependency and refuses to work otherwise.

Don't load the original mod. You only need to load this one. I'd consider the original and this version incompatible with each other.

Is there a way to remove original mod's ACE action automatically in further updates or a way for me to do it manually for myself? It shows both original mod and redux mod actions.

MP worked well for me and my brothers

@Akmal1235101 you could use the attachTo function in a script to simply attach that Backpack to a player. Will probably look like shit though if you don't adjust it...

On MP, when guys put the bag on chest, it gets invisible, everything works, but no bag is shown in the chest... Any idea what could be causing it?

Should work as long as it retains the original ACE function names and is just a deletion of the medical PBOs

Does this work with the Ace-No medical?
