WeaponSite Zoom for IFA3
This is a small addon for IFA3, what it does is automatically zoom your iron sights, so instead of you having to press
the button to zoom in so you can line up the sites on an enemy soldier, this will do it automatically.
Why this feature?
Because I always hated having to press an extra button to zoom into my sights, I also dont care for the sights of the guns
to be small as hell, and the problem with that is considering Arma3's drunken sway, it makes it even harder to hit anything
when your trying to line up your sights, and then have to press a button to zoom in on top of it, so this addon
eliminates the need to press the key for zoom, so now you can focus on the target.

This works for all German, Russian, DLC (American) infantry weapons.
The weapons this works for include the following:
  • Rifles
  • Submachine guns
  • Machine guns
  • Pistols
  • AT launchers (Panzerschreck (Germans) & Bazooka for the (Americans)
Download
IFA3 WeaponSites Zoom

Requirements
IFA3 Conversion, Arma3, CBA_A3

Installation
Move the @WeaponSites_Zoom
to your Arma3 directory and add the mod at the end of startup parameter like this:
@CBA_A3;@IF;@LIB_DLC_1_lite;@IFA3SA;@ifa3m;@IFA3;@IFA3_Weapons_Zoom

Known issues
None found so far.

Thanks fellas, ya I think you will like it, i wont play without it, just to reiterate on what it does (will record a vid of it early this morning my time) but basically
when you look down the Iron sites in the vanilla IFA3 game the sites are tiny, well this bothers me because its challenging to hit anything,
so ingame you have to hit your zoom button which brings the sites closer very simple, but imo you could be using other buttons at the same time and not
your zoom button to bring the sites and screen/target closer.

What the addon does now is it will zoom the sites automatically which eliminates the need to have to press your zoom
button freeing up a button for other tactical applications in your style of play.

This works for all German, Russian, DLC (American) infantry weapons.
The weapons include the following:
  • Rifles
  • Submachine guns
  • Machine guns
  • Pistols
  • AT launchers (Panzerschreck (Germans) & Bazooka for the (Americans)
Currently
Need to test with static weapons (mg's) which is what im working on, and update the config to include the statics in there, we'll see.

The same addon is used in my IFWarMod (IFA2 version) except I had updated the required addons in the config to make
it work for IFA3 (IF in Arma3 for those of you who are new)
So the only requirements for it are Arma3 IFA3.

Alright fellas link to download is the first post.
I recorded a video but for a 1 min recording I ended up with 8gb files 3 files at 3gb a piece wtf, what a freaking headache, anyone have tips or what
you do when you record vids, I really dont want to spend an entire day uploading a sh*t quality vid to utube. I use Fraps but it always spits out avi files,
i have windows movie maker and tbh I really dont want to use it I import a vid and the dam thing splits it into 8 clips.

Anyways just try the addon if you can record a vid please do and post it.
Any questions let me know.

Using Fraps to record a vid, it records np, just its format after 1 min of recording is avi and the vid ends up being like 3gb,
trying to upload that on utube is almost an all day event.
As for installation its a mod just move the @WeaponSites_Zoom to your Arma3 directory and add it to your IFA3 startup parameter,
like this:

@CBA_A3;@IF;@LIB_DLC_1_lite;@IFA3SA;@ifa3m;@IFA3;@IFA3_Weapons_Zoom
put the mod in the same place as the other mods, mods are indicated by the @ sign in front of them.

The @if_other_addons folder btw is just an explosions mod, you dont even need that mod you can use blastcore instead if you wanted, but what you
asked is if you put my mod into another mod it wont work, all mods go in the same place for IFA3 which is in your Arma3 directory, however you start
the game you need to include my addon (a tiny mod)
in your startup parameter as you see bolded above.

Do you have any other recording software like DXtory or Shadowplay (if Nvidia card) Or try another codec if you can change the codex in Fraps (it's been'so long since iv'e used it). I find Shadowplay gives me decent quality in arma and not to huge files and Dxtory it depends a lot on the codec. If not you can try to compress the file with a lower bit rate in the editing software of your choice to shrink the files.
