FINDING THE ADDON IN THE EDITOR
You can find the Objects under:
UK Armed Forces > Boats
3x Decal options switchable in EDEN Attributes:
Generic - As requested by several Dutch Community members
NV/Thermal Obs camera in Commander's turret
2x Firing-From-Vehicles Turrets (Personnel Version only).
Option to open/close covers in EDEN attributes (Personnel Version only).
ViV can transport vehicles upto 12,000kg
De-Beaching Option - You will inevitably beach this at some point. If you don't have another vehicle to push it back this will save you. In the Driver's position at 0Kph you will see an option appear "De-beach" - this gives you a short shove backwards. Repeat as necessary until you are afloat again.
PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE
Improved and More structured damage.
Fixed gun mounts on the fore deck.
Several other skins.
A WORD ABOUT REALISM AND A SENSE OF HUMOUR
We strive to make all our addons as realistic as the game engine and our own capabilities allow. We all know that ArmA has some interesting moments with PhysX while we have tried to limit these without compromising the addon... things just happen sometimes. Do let us know. But also accept that we may not be able to fix everything.
It has always been a basic tenant of RKSL Studios design philosophy not to negatively affect other community made content. We do not replace core values or modify anything that will affect the function or experience of others.
We are happy to discuss optional compatibility patches, but will not exclusively adapt our addons to anyone else's Mod standards.
All RKSL Content is tested against the currently available stable build of the Vanilla game and official expansions.
