Well all I can say is good luck on your endeavors and keep up with the good work.

Hey, I already thought about something like that, way back when I started the mod. I even got some test working and would personally like such functionality, but I think that it would be prone to bugs.
I would only implement something like this, when I'm sure it will work reliably and with as many mods as possible and really don't want to break any functionality of mods which are also modifying the inventory-ui.

Love your mod and what it does. I was wondering if it was possible to make the bag on your chest accessable? Maybe like a UI thing in the inventory to switch to the Bag 2 list? It is ok if it is not possible or part of your vision for this mod.

Really sorry for the late reply.
BOC works with backpacks of all mods, including TFAR. There is a special feature, which will preserve the radio settings of TFAR radios when putting a lr radio on your chest. This currently only works with TFAR version 0.9.x and not with the pre release version 1.x.

I will probably change this in the near future, taking into consideration that the pre-release version is now playable without any major bugs and most of the clans and communities (at least the ones that I know) already switched over to it.

does this support the TaskForce Radio mod?

Currently running on both Server and Client, will keep it so ...thx

As long as you don't use any mission modules, BOC will probably work client-side only. Although I won't guarantee, that there won't be any errors. It definitely won't work server-side only.
I'll advise to just load it on every client and the server, to prevent errors.

Sorry, this mod is intended for use with ace only. I'll probably never make it vanilla compatible. But if you really want to, you can add functions to perform the actions via a keypress yourself in an extra mod or in your mission. There are functions [] for everything available. (But please don't change any original PBOs. Your goal should be fairly simple to achieve even without changing them :D)

Thanks for mod (should be in base game really) Could this be loaded as SERVER side only or must it be client & server?

What are the chances for adding custom keys trough vanilla custom keys or CBA addon settings. That way ace wouldn't be required for the swapping of backpacks. I tested the mod in vanilla and it works fine except for missing swap actions (I used the arsenal to swap backpacks)
