Option to have daylight visible lasers
Reviewed, LowPublic


In ArmA 3 we can only create IR laser and not the visible laser by human eye.

Basically it needs Laser Sights on Weapons.

How do I put laser sights on weapons

Place a memory point called "laser_pos" on your model.
The laser will emit from this position, parallel to the bore (muzzle/chamber) line.

Place the following line in your weapon's config.cpp: lightMode = X;
Replace X with one of the following numbers:
0 no light / laser possible
visible to the naked eye
2 visible only with NVGs
visible with either NVGs or the naked eye
Toggled via the normal laser toggle command, default is "L".

Not all lasers are IR only, daylight visible and combined should be possible.

I think the way the lasers are designed to only be detectable in night-vision, probably so enemies can't see it.

Bryan, he's referring to traditional laser sights, like red laser dots. In that case, I support his request.

I upvoted. I think a red dot laser would be a handy close quarters tool.

Visible lasers would be very useful for tactical pistols with laser module ofc

Indeed, this would be really useful for CQB situations. Especially when you are playing on higher difficulties without any sort of crosshair. If you suddenly have to shoot down a long hallway, that split second to right click and find your sights to take a more precise shot can get you killed.

Regular lasers would make the game so much more amazing. In the mean time, will somebody please work on a mod for this??
