PRADAR automatically activates if the addon is installed correctly.
To help reduce any conflict with mission designer introductions, the display will not commence until the player starts moving forward.
Description of information presented by PRADAR:
Primary role is to present an emulation of a persons senses outside of the players vision. Eg peripheral vision, sound, smell etc. Specific to the players side.
It will only display the eight closest friendly contacts, for each component names and dots.
All visuals fade with distance as things are harder to track with secondary senses, or are harder to id who is who at greater distances generally.
This information is presented as coloured dots around the edge of the screen.
Small dot = Man character.
Large dot = vehicle.
Green dot = Non group member, or group member that has not been viewed for a while.
Blue dot = Group member who you have resently viewed.
Red dot = Non group member, or group member that has not been viewed for a while that is very close.
Purple dot = Group member who you have resently viewed who is very close.
Force Commanding (FC) key:
If the menu item show group list is selected default is "showing".
By default the short names stay on. Selecting to hide them only shows them while holding force commanding.
While holding down then FC if you hold down lean left and right simultaneously will display a list of group members weapons or their vehicle position.
While holding all three of these keys down, using the zoom in, zoom out, look left and look right keys (default Num +,-,4 and 6) will change the size and relative left and right position of the group icon labels to allow better alignment for different users.
To reduce cluttering the action menu, the PRADAR options will only be visible to the player while they hold down both the lean left and lean right keys simultaneously.
Three brightness levels.
High, Low and Off (While off is selected, dots will appear when the player holds the force commanding key).
Toggle group names.
Turns on and off the display of the group list when force commanding is pressed. When off they only appear if the forcecommanding(space) is being held.
View Group Details.
While holding down the force commanding key (space), if you hold down both the lean left and right keys,
pradar will display a list of your group showing each members current primary and secondary weapons.
If you hover your cursor over a person from another group and are close enough to them, you will be given the option to join that persons group.
If you are the current leader of a group you have the option to give command to another person while holding your cursor over them and are close enough to them.
In single player if you wanted to view the group and leader options place this in the editor.
