Paddle Mod

In 1 collection by Feint
FEINT'S ARMA 3 ADDONS & MODS
10 items
Description
This mod modifies most boats by giving them a killswitch for the engine and the ability to paddle the boat around silently. You can also use ropes with the boats for landmarking while swimming and as an anchor. The Zodiac-style boats receive improved maneuverability and engine power. You can also bury or camouflage the Zodiacs using bushes found nearby as well as use the ropes of the Zodiacs for towing.

Is possible to add SOG DLC boats? Thanks!!

Also, where is the rope created? On the server, on the client who shot the rope out, globally, etc.?
Kill3rCat [1st FORECON] Jun 10, 2022 @ 6:25pm 
Perhaps it could be a locality issue? You could try adding using setOwner to make the boat and the rope box local to the player who picks up the rope box.

That would be nice (removing the engine), but not possible.

Sorry some of you are having issues. I haven't updated this in a very long time. I tested it recently in SP and it works fine. Not sure what BI changed which broke the MP functionality and honestly I'm probably not going to try to fix it unless someone sends me a bunch of positive energy or money. Haha, JK. It still works in SP though.

Would be great if you could remove the engine as well.

Also, the towing doesn't seem to work reliably in MP, the rope seems to not exist on clients?
Kill3rCat [1st FORECON] Feb 18, 2022 @ 2:50pm 
For some reason the keybind isn't working to retrieve the rope. We can deploy it, and pull the rope around, but can't retrieve the rope.
