  [SP] Penetration of Takistan (CO + BAF + PMC) by Mosh Mission release    

Mosh has informed us about [SP] Penetration of Takistan (Combined Ops) version 1.3 updated mission release on the BI Forums.

This is a search and destroy missions involving six objectives. You are the leader of a 10 man squad.
1. Kill 5 AA infantry
2. Destroy a scud
3. Kill a warlord
4. Locate and destroy a shilka
5. Locate and kill Colonel Aziz
6. Harvest a sample of the warlord's crop
This is a large scale mission. It uses most of the Takistan map. I like to fly and drive the various vehicles BIS has given us. Obviously the firepower provided is overkill but you have the option to use as little or as much as you want. If you like small maps and few vehicles, please don't even bother with this.

UPDATE 01/26/2011

-version 1.3
-now with three versions... play as PMC, BAF, or US
-removed most computer generated voices and replaced with my own... first time voice acting
-fixed some scripts
-removed UNA targets script, added ei8ght FOB with weapon range

  Dynamic View Distance (DVD) by tpw Addon release    
tpw has released an updated Dynamic View Distance (DVD) v 1.02 addon on the BI Forums.

Here's a very simple dynamic viewdistance addon which does a few useful things:

What it does:

1 - It dynamically and smoothly adjusts viewdistance according to your framerate.
2 - It prevents the framerate from dropping and staying too low in areas of scenic complexity or lots of AI.
3 - It stabilises the framerate so that there are less noticeable FPS changes.
4 - It increases the viewdistance when using scopes/binoculars.

How it works:

The addon launches a background process to monitor the average FPS over a user specified time period (eg 10 seconds). This is then compared to the average from the previous 10 seconds, and if the FPS has decreased then the viewdistance is dropped accordingly. Conversely, if the FPS increases, the viewdistance is increased. It's set up so that it won't cause large oscillations in viewdistance/framerate.

DVD also checks if you are using a scope or binocs and increases the viewdistance to simulate being able to see further and with more detail than with the naked eye.

DVD works on the assumption that in areas of high scenic complexity such as the middle of Zargabad or in a dense forest, you won't really notice that the view distance has been dropped. Similarly, if there are a lot of enemy AI trying to smoke you, you're probably more interested in getting a smooth bead on them than in admiring distant scenery. Another assumption is that increasing viewdistance when looking down a scoped weapon doesn't actually negatively affect FPS most of the time.

You'll notice the viewdistance changing if you look for it, just like you'll notice lod switching or clutter popping in if you look for them too. After a while you simply stop noticing.

  SR5 Tactical IED Detection and Remote Det script, by Reezo Addon release    
albertors has released an updated SR5 Tactical IED Detection and Remote Det script, by Reezo on the BI Forums.

This script allows a unit or vehicle to detect BAF and PMC IEDs as well as explosive stashes.


- Enhance the EOD department
- Specialize Engineer roles
- Increase the fun in Ordnance Disposal

- Custom images and sounds
- Fully modular for easy installation
- Works on units and vehicles
- Works globally so IEDs detected are globally broadcasted for full MP compatibility
- IED position is reported in map once detected, but it's not always 100% spot-on (the instrument approximates the position)
- Works with multiple IEDs but can report only one IED at the time, so you'll get different IED positions and you'll have to carefully think and plan the situation
- IED position gets re-calculated at each scan, with different approximation, this means you can wait a number of scans to pinpoint the actual position based on 3 or more approximations
- Detection range is affected by speed: units and vehicles should move slowly to allow maximum detection range
- Depending on the instrument skill you can remotely detonate the IED if the tool finds out the right disruptive wavelenght. Once found, you can trigger it as an action via the scroll-wheel.
- Random "fake IED" detection, meaning the tool MIGHT notify an anomaly that is NOT an IED. Fake anomalies get verified after some time and you receive a "clear" message stating the anomaly was not consistent
- Remote detonation safety: if you're in "danger close" it won't go off
- Remote detonation does not work when you are standing too far from the IED (simulating wave energy dispersion caused by distance)
- Manual defuse: Using your tool you must inject some code into the IED trigger mechanism to defuse it. Click at the right time, when the sum of the "readings" numbers is a multiple of 3. If you click at the wrong time, the bomb will arm itself and explode in some seconds, so RUN AWAY!!
- Scary regular beepings to help you find bombs in dense areas
- Armed bombs start beeping increasingly faster until they explode
