Introducing the ShackTac Movement addons, by Rg

If you've ever hung up in a doorway, on a tree, or generally found yourself falling all over yourself in close-quarters movement, you're going to get a kick out of this. "ST Movement" is a set of two tiny addons that bring a welcome change to your ArmA2 movement model.

The first, st_collision, is based on an addon concept by Rocko and Kju from the ArmA1 days, redone in ArmA2 by Rg. This addon causes your weapon collision with the environment to be significantly toned down, meaning that you can now move sideways through doorways and generally find CQB to be enjoyable, versus feel like a rusted robot trying to navigate a terrifying alien world called 'indoors'. Try it out and see, it's simple and very noticeable.

The second may or may not be a big deal, depending on how you move around in ArmA2. There is a combination of keys in A2 that, for reasons unknown, triggers you into a several-second-long evasive-sideways animation. Personally, this used to get me in trouble (or killed) frequently. The st_evasive addon simply removes this animation from the player's movement system, preventing any key combination from accidentally triggering it.

Both addons can be seen in video form here:

You can download them here, filename st_movement_v1.7z.


File mirrors/sites: Please do not mirror this addon. The above link can be shared instead; it's a 3KB addon set, after all. ;)

Nice one but I think you should include a key/signature specific to this mod as I assume adding shacktac.bikey to our server would mean we'd be permitting the ST HUD mod also?

I'd always wondered what was up with the slow sidestepping move, good to know I wasn't the only one. These should come in useful.

The "st_collision" may cause any side effect like clipping issues or "firing throught walls" ? Or is a win-win situation?

Just by watching the video the game seems a lot more smother. Kudos.

The A2 weapons fire from the chamber, not the muzzle, so while you can stick the muzzle into/through thin walls in theory, you can't shoot through them, due to the chamber still being on the 'correct' side of the wall. So, no, you should not see any exploits like that, to the best of my knowledge based on having played with it for awhile now.

I have to say this is a fantastic mod, I can't overstate the improvement to CQB. The slight incongruity of gun barrels clipping through walls is massively outweighed by the improvement to indoor movement.

The changes made in st_collision should be implemented in an official patch, such a huge gameplay improvement. :)

Nice one :)

One thing though. I see the key is called: shacktac.bikey. This is the same NAME key as used for @sthud. As the dedicated server holds a keys directory where all are listed it will override the other. Unless they are identical internaly this holds a conflict.

They signed the addons with the same key as sthud.

If you already have the shacktac.bikey on your server, no need to add anything.
