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.

You cannot use this without ACE, hence it is listed as a required addon

IIUC: Fuck no. 1st you have to get through the required addons check, and then there are so many chances for the consequently undefined parts of the scripting to crash the game and the mod to be disabled before you get into a mission.

with full bag on back, stamina goes down fast, if i put it on chest, stamina goes down slower

hmm it does seem like the weight is gone/reduced when its on chest

tested it with stamina enabled

That should automatically be applied via ACE. I don't think the weight will show in the inventory menu however

how to make backpack weight stay when it's on chest?

Myself and Diwako are looking into it. I'll hopefully have a fix out within the next week. Thanks for bringing it up
