ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead ONLY


Module creates environmental effects such as dust, mist, snow and clouds. The effects depend on the time of the day and season (summer, winter etc).


Method used to determine current time of day

_daytime = 0.5 - abs(daytime - 12) / 12

Commented by module maker: 0 = night, 1 = day, 0.5 = sunset/sunrise

Default requirements for specific effect to be enabled

  • Snow
    • overcast > 0.35
    • winter: November - February
  • Dust
    • not winter: March - September
    • overcast < 0.5
    • abs _daytime >= 0.1
  • Mist
    • abs _daytime < 0.1
