Hi,

I've re-packaged my Forward Observer Addon, fixed a few bugs, added support for some more third party addons. Increased the dispersion of impact points and added some minor functionality. While this does not contain all the updates I would have liked, it does fix a few bugs. I plan on re-writing the Observer to incorporate all the functions I would like and those requested. Formost will be adding better support for other weapons systems and expanding on the strategic decision making.

AI Forward Observer capable of calling in indirect fire over a predefined area. Observers have the same eyesight quality as Snipers, with the added advantage of using Binoculars more effectively than regular AI, in the role of static observation. This provides them with an enhanced detection ability of about 1000+ meters (depending on terrain and target type), while keeping within the confines of the game engine itself.

The core system files are now contained in two addons:

FOU & FCU System AddonsThese addons are required by default.

If you dont have any of the follwing Mods\Addons then you can use the default OFP units and a Generic Mortar addon donated by GFX.

If I have overlooked anyone or made any errors regarding credits to addon makers, please let me know.

I have update the addon and function names to reflect the OFPEC tags for the entire system, so it will mean any mission and scripts that use the old FO & FC prefixes, will need to be udated. My apologise for any incovenience to anyone who might be using the old versions, I can only say in future updates, there will be no more name changes.

Cheers
