    Features

    • Commander's tablet
    • Working FBCB2 Blue Force Tracker system
    • User placed makers - place markers for enemy, medical and general purpose
    • Tracks all crewed Bluefor Military vehicles
    • Tracks any dismounted troops with the proper equipment
    • Android based Blue Force Tracker
    • MicroDAGR hand-held GPS with Blue Force Tracking
    • Commanders Tablet can view live UAV streams
    • Commanders Tablet can view live Helmet Cam streams
    • Vehicle mounted FBCB2 interface, Blue Force Tracking
    • Tactical Awareness Display (TAD) for air vehicles, Blue Force Tracking
    • This system is available to only one side at a time, there is a mission configurable parameter to choose sides
    • None of the markers or icons show on maps, need one of the devices to view


    Known Issues

    • Switching to or from the full screen views while in a vehicle can cause issues (fixed by exiting vehicle)
      BIS issue with command, please vote for a fix
    • If your are viewing yourself from the UAV or Helmet Cam in PiP screen, your textures can bug on your unit
    • Even though items go into the GPS slot they are not required to be there for cTab to operate, they can go anywhere in your inventory, i.e. your vest or uniform
    • Players that are experiencing conflicts with help screens (uses "H"as a key as well) are advised to rebind cTab "IF_MAIN", for example to "SHIFT"+ "H". This used to be an issue with Zeus but has been resolved as of cTab version 2.1. There might be other such cases though.
    • Helicopter pilots (and co-pilots) that are using RAVEN's LIFTER mod are advised to rebind cTab "IF_MAIN" to something other than the default as "H" is used by that mod and cannot be changed (as of this writing).
    • When a UAV is being actively piloted and a cTab user is already connected to the UAV's gunner turret, it is currently impossible to detect that there is a gunner connected in order to prevent a second player to connect to the same gunner turret. Wonky things happen to the player in the gunner seat if a second player connects and it might break the game. Please vote for a fix.

    Changelog
    2.1.1

    • Support for updated CBA keybinding API (introduced with CBA 1.20 RC6)
    • Prevent TAD from being accessible when using a parachute
    • Added 500m zoom-level to small TAD
    • Fixed player's camera breaking when exiting UAV full screen view while in a vehicle
    • Fixed control of new target designator turrets (introduced with marksman DLC) from the Tablet's UAV screen
    • Immediately terminate UAV cameras if UAV is distroyed
    • Added own helmet cam back into the list of accessible helmet cams (to reduce confusion)
    • Sorted helmet cams by group ID
    • Made area around the map gray instead of black to increas readability of off-map markers / units
    • Made TAD map tools follow mouse cursor instead of map center. This also allows for measuring distances to off-map destinations.

    • Added UAV type to list of available UAVs to help with orientation
    • Re-Categorized helmet cam item to show up as face-wear (goggles) in Arsenal. Note: It can still be moved anywhere else in the inventory without losing its capability

    This is awesome.

    Would like to see that the vehicle cTab system would come up instead of your android tab when you are in a vehicle. (had to uneqip it to get the vehicle version.
    If you have the rugged tablet i think ppl want to have that in their hand when it has more options.

    And I dont know if you should be allowed to go to 3rd person when watching an UAV. But atlest you can do that right now.

    Keep up the great job.

    The third person when viewing is a side effect of the issue with the command being broken right now(see known issues above) I could script a solution to this problem but that is pretty heavy handed for an issue that really is not a game breaker. Hopefully BI will fix the command so that I can show the view only just as its seen from the object. Please vote on the ticket that I linked to in the first post.

    Thanks for the input

    Just a friendly heads up ACRE radios don't need to be in the slot to work others wise you could only use one at a time, and same with this mod the tablet and helmet cam don't need to be in a slot just rather in your inventory some place within that.
