Combined Arms aim assist mod


Recommended Posts

I apologize if someone has already posted this as a mod, but I did several forum searches and could only find Smokey's mod. Thanks Smokey for showing us where the files for the reticles are! :)


So, anyway, this is a tiny mod to the aim assist reticle (the thing that computes the firing solution) that makes it A LOT easier to "put the thing on the thing" for targets at longer ranges:





To install, open up C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\tech\CombinedArms\Cockpit\Resources. Rename "arcade.tga" to something else like "arcade_original.tga". Now download and unzip the arcade.zip file included at the bottom of this post (sorry that I had to make it a .zip, but the forum will not accept files with a .tga extension). Place the new "arcade.tga" file in C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\tech\CombinedArms\Cockpit\Resources.


By the way, if you want to make your own reticle mods, it's very easy: simply open the .tga files in C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\tech\CombinedArms\Cockpit\Resources and edit them with Paint.net (that is what I used, at least... Paint.net is a free paint program that is far more capable than MS paint).
