Knock On Vehicles

This mod adds an ACE interaction with vehicles allowing you to knock on them, alerting the crew inside.

For example, an infantry element can use it to get the attention of a friendly tank crew, so the TC can pop his hatch and they can communicate.

When you knock on a vehicle it plays a sound for anyone inside the vehicle/near the vehicle, and if the variable is set to true it also shows a hint.

Works on any ground vehicle that inherits from Wheeled_APC or Tank.

Optional variables
- These can be placed in your mission's init.sqf to change certain things about the mod:

BRIDGE_vehicleknock_showHint = true;
- Enables a hint when you knock on a vehicle/your vehicle gets knocked on. Defaults to false.

BRIDGE_vehicleknock_blacklist_classnames = [];
BRIDGE_vehicleknock_blacklist_configInheritance = [];
- Allows you to blacklist a classname or a config inheritance chain. Both default to empty arrays (not blacklisting anything).

BRIDGE_vehicleknock_whitelist_classnames = [];
BRIDGE_vehicleknock_whitelist_configInheritance = [];
- Allows you to allow a classname or config inheritance chain that the blacklist would have blocked. Both default to empty arrays (not blacklisting anything).

Hi, just want to inform you that this {LINK REMOVED} is using files from this mod illegally and presenting them as it's own. It is actively being used on "creator's" server.

I broke down that mod and here is which mods are stolen: {LINK REMOVED}

Hey mate,
Love the mod! What a simple yet awesome idea.
I wanted to ask permission to repack this in my units modpack. Full credit will be given in our mod description along with a link to your workshop page.
This would be really useful as we nearly always operate with vehicles and armour.
I've sent you a friend request if you would like to discuss it further.
Thanks for your time.

Hey everything is working, even for mod vehicles. Wanted to ask if you could add this to other vehicle types?

I think this mod needs an update as the menu does not show up with the latest build and ace.

Hello Bridge.J Gunter here in the past you had given me permissions if i may include your mod here in my IFA3WarMod, i am asking again as i am updating my mod and plan to upload my mod on steam workshop, wanted to ask if you would be ok with this? All credits given of course, and the mod is just included not changed or anything.
