  • ArmA II Add-0ns

    What add-ons would you recommend to others that play on the server? Someone mentioned the fire team leader to me last night and thought I'd see if there were anymore out there that I might be missing out on.

    Re: ArmA II Add-0ns

    As far as client side mods go, a sound mod. I recommend either HiFi sounds http://armaholic.com/page.php?id=9489 or Chammy's sound mod http://armaholic.com/page.php?id=9049
    If you want some pretty explosions, WarFX particles http://armaholic.com/page.php?id=8182
    If you want some better looking ground textures on chenarus, land tex (increases FPs by 2) http://armaholic.com/page.php?id=6050
    If you want your grass to run better but look the same, proper low plants http://dev-heaven.net/wiki/proper-pr..._Tweak_Visuals Low version preferred
    To get a better idea of where your squadmates are, ST hud http://armaholic.com/page.php?id=9936
    There are more out there but those are some of the most basic ones.

        If you use headphones CSM is a good choice: while the sounds are better than the stock ones, the volume is lower, allowing one like me to raise the sound effects bar making it slightly easier to hear Direct VON, while not risking deafness.
        Although with the new VON slider, this might no longer be an issue (have yet to test it).

          I'd recommend the latest beta patch. Adds a VON Slider and improves viewdistance stutter.

          I personally use the following mods:
          http://www.armaholic.com/plug.php?e=search

          ASR Camofaces unlocked
          CSM Sound mod
          Shacktack FTHUD
          Saku Sun Fix
          Saku Lights (nighttime)
          WARFX Tracers
          WARFX Particles
          USSOCOM Performance Mod
          GDT Aircraft viewdistance Mod http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=9900

          Sry for not linking, I'm lazy today.

            No need for a sound mod! ACEX_SM is the best there is! :D

            However I agree on Saku Lights and WarFX Particles (I think ACE tracers are way better than the WarFX tracers). And not to forget:

            Lets you use HDR post-processing and stuff, without the nausiating blur from moving.

              The digital compass is very useful, though.

                i must say that i have tried a couple of the addons that have been suggested and i must say the ST hud and the digital compas is the best so far. i use the sunku lights as well and like those. this is a great thread and thanks for the ideas guys

                  Re: ArmA II Add-0ns

                  I tried both the ST hud and the digital compass. The hud works great and really should be part of a yoma update if possible. I am not sure if I have the digital compass right because I can't see it on screen.

                    make sure you read the readme file. you have to put a config file in your userconfig folder and then when you are in game you have to hit the escape button and turn it on, it has an on/off switch

                      LOL. That's what I get for thinking. I put both files in my Addon folder.

                        Alright so;

                        Whats best of best for sound effects? They really needed/ boost gameplay quality?

                        Should I get something for new/better looking explosions?

                        How Do I make the addons active? Is it through addon sync/yoma?


                        What are really like the top addons that the majority of people use?

                          IMO, the best sound mod is CSM2, but you can mix some of then together, but this requires practise with the addon management. Yes, the really boost the gameplay immersion.

                          For explosions and other effects, the only addon around is the WarFX... which is quite awesome...

                          To make these "extra-TG" addons active is the same thing as updating trough Yoma and changing your target line. You just need to unpack the addons in their respective folders on your installation folder. (arma2/@addonXYZ/Addons/*PBOs*) Or you can create a folder yourself (@name).

                            If you fly lots, elias sound mod has very nice background chatter and cockpit tones. I prefer it to CSM myself.

                              The two addons that I find help me out a great deal in TG MP is the Digital Compass and the STHud.
