 +====== Custom Artillery ======
  
 +How to create custom artillery. Its difficult, in fact, we haven'​t been able to create fully custom one yet, we just inherit from M119 for arty and M252 for mortars. Yes it works, but its ugly. Here is our research so far, maybe this helps someone.

 +M252 as an example:

 +  - arma2\weapons\m252_81mm_mortar\config.cpp is creating the vehicle + weapon.
 +  - arma2\modules\arty\config.cpp adds to that config; magazine "​ARTY_8Rnd_81mmHE_M252"​ and ARTY_IsArtyVehicle = 1;.
 +
 +====== Summary ======
 +
 +Adding artilleryScanner = 1; to your arty VEHICLE will activate the artillery computer action menu.
 +
 +Adding ARTY_IsArtyVehicle = 1; to your vehicle, will activate target artillery action menu.
 +
 +arma2\weapons\m252_81mm_mortar\config.cpp\\
 +oa\weapons\m252_81mm_mortar\config.cpp\\

 +
 +**M252 81mm mortar**
 +
 +81mortar.p3d
 +<​code>​
 +Resolution LOD selections: otochlaven, otocvez, proxys cargo and gunner.
 +Geometry: very rough box shape, proxys.
 +Memory:
 +aimpoint - center of tube.
 +cargoview - aligned with ground plate, bit to the right.
 +gun_chamber - almost bottom of tube.
 +gun_muzzle - end point of tube.
 +gunnerview - slightly behind and left of ground plate.
 +konec hlavne - same as gun_chamber.
 +osahlaven - horizontal two points where tube connects to ground plate.
 +osaveze - vertical two points where tube connects to ground plate.
 +otochlaven - gun_muzzle and gun_chamber.
 +otocvez - osahlaven, cargoview, gunnerview, pos_cargo, pos_cargo_dir,​ pos_gunner and pos_gunner_dir.
 +pos_cargo - cargo getin point, back right.
 +pos_cargo_dir - cargo getin direction (towards model).
 +pos_gunner - gunner getin point, back left.
 +pos_gunner_dir - gunner getin direction (towards model).
 +usti hlavne - end point of tube (gun_muzzle).
 +zamerny - center of tube (aimpoint).
 +</​code>​
 +
 +**podnos 2b14 82mm**
 +
 +podnos_2b14_82mm.p3d
 +
 +Pretty much the mirror image technically modelwise as 81mortar.p3d. Only thing worth mentioning is that gun_muzzle looks to be like almost same spot as in M252, which suggests BIS just used its memory points "as is".
