Would it be possible to add the following functionality to Binoculars for Arma2-OA (&)or Arma3?
Currently, when you switch to Binoculars you are immediately put into the Binoculars' optics view. If you suddenly need to look around your immediate vicinity when in this view (with TrackIR etc) you have to switch back to your primary weapon first. This very clunky and can be frustrating.
I propose that when you switch to binoculars they behave like a normal weapon. Eg:
1.Switch to Binoculars
2.The Binocular is switched to, but remains "lowered".
3.Pressing the "optics" key brings up the Binoculars and gives you the Binocular view.
4.Pressing "optics" key again lowers the Binoculars and allows you to look around without having to change weapon. Just like any other gun.
Some players might not like having to raise the Binocular after switching to it. So for the first initial switch to Binocular, you could have them come straight to the Binocular view, if the majority prefers this.
