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.

@Maff I would prefer that you didn't because if I update it, there will be a version control issue.

Hi,I was wondering if I would be allowed to repack(Without modification) Your mod into a mod for my unit since we are trying to reduce the number of smaller mods in the modpack. Credit would of course be given and I don't plan on editing anything.

There are more detailed instructions on my website https://feintgames.com/paddle-mod-intro/

You can add it to your mod pack, but please don't modify it.

@Feint

I would like to add this to a mod-pack for my unit, is there any chance I could get your permission to use it?

If permission is granted, could di please be allowed to edit it to include the boats from walkers A2 vics?

Nice, I'll look for that.
