It's just a legal thing to prevent use of the mod in VBS 2.

@OP So... where's the download?

What do you mean by windows key? The arrows, the numpad.....?

depends of keyboard, most of keyboards that there are in shop in my location (Europe, Poland) have "windows" key,

windows key is on keyboard dedicated to M$ systems, if i was in home i would take photo, but look at google:

http://twojepc.pl/html/chieftec_keybord/klawiatura_przod.jpg

keyboard with windows menu button and keyboard with right mouse menu button (when mouse crash or broken)

these have 2 windows buttons,

to be honest i do not remember ever having keyboard without those buttons , maybe you use some weird laptop ? do you have desktop computer for gaming ?

I have a normal laptop, the same button interface as the picture you linked. But i don't know what i'm going wrong with the addon? :confused:

All the addons are there in the editor, but when I start using them, theres no action menu to do the action?

Hi Steva,

I really was amazed when discovering your mod! I had been dreaming of something like that for quite some time because I play lots of APOCALYPSE/LOST missions where you are an insurgent/freedom fighter set out to defeat an enemy who initially has massive advantage in manpower and supplies. This mission has already a fair amount of logistics in it, so your mod fits right into the concept! Imagine how immersive that gets when I have to look for animals of farm and forest and for water sources while risking detection!

But before I mustered the courage to actually get a new mod into my beloved savegame by messing around with the .SQF or whereever you tell a given mission to use the RSP systen, I tried to add RSP to LEA the loadout editor, and the creator of that mod was so kind to help me with that. Now I can add your survival sytem AND the items to actually care for my soldier's needs into ANY mission easily. I tried both editor and normal SP missions and I do see the icons for hunger/thirst. Also, with LEA I had created a "survivalist kit" that gave me a K-Bar, a water canteen and an axe, an empty can as well as day pack rations. The items were partly "ammo" items and partly in the GPS/compass slots. I play with ACE, though, and I made the following observations both in editor and SP mission:

1) I can use the right Windows key to bring up ACE self interaction which then offers me in addition to the normal ACE interactions to drink from the canteen or eat the day ration.

2) I can use the left Windows key to interact with the felled trees and I get the firewood.

3) I cannot get the canteen refilled in a lake.

4) I cannot get meat from fresh (= shot by myself) chicken, cow, sheep, goat.

Do you have any idea what I made wrong? Is there such a thing as a "sweet spot" for all these actions which simply is smaller than with the big stack of wood?

And provided I get the system to work, what effect will it have on friendly and enemy AI?

Thanks in advance for your answers,

touristo

First thing i must say that this is not my addon,this addon make Tong,but i have answers for some of your questions.So let's start in a row: I am absolutely agree that is very exciting situations and they make arma the magic game,but you can not refill water at natural sources,it will be possible in some future update like i read somewhere on forum.You can refill canteens only at clear water sources which you put from editor,like barrels with water and water stands.For example,i make truck cistern of water (kamaz open) and keep it near soldiers on the field to cover logistics of water supplies,or simply make secret camps somewhere in forest,inside enemy zone,and put there source of water and etc.For food,its much easier,because you can hunt animals everywhere on terrain,only item you need is knife.Answers:

1)Ok,this action works,there is no problem,only problem is IVbag but that is not mentioned.

2)It only can be done if you have item axe at your inventory,so thats ok

3)Only water sources from editor,not natural.I read somewhere on forum that next update will have option for refilling water at lakes,rivers and oceans but player will have to use some item that will clean that water first.(some kind of filter)

4)Did you manage to kill animal with knife using interaction keys ? If you done this,than i cant see reason why you cant took meat.Face dead animal and press interaction key to get action "cut meat",when you finish,get parts of fresh meat just using action "gear" from action menu.Than you cook food on fire,but you need empty can to store cooked food.Otherwise,you can put "finished",already cooked food to boxes or soldier inventory slots using classnames and basic,easy script,but in my opinion,hunting is much better :))

If I'm understanding you well,you look for some kind of place where you have everything in one (sweet spot) ? No,there is not,you must collect every of this items to make actions with them,logs for creating fire,knife for cutting meat,etc..i do so using "classnames".

Friendly units are effected with symtoms of thirsty and hungry as well as player even if you switch to other playeble unit,but enemies are not.I am tested it well in mission long more than 78 hours.

Now i have question for you : Did you see "status bar" for thirsty/hungry in upper-right corner of screen (like in screenshots of addon) or not? Or you just have green icons on right side of screen ?

Thanks in advance and feel free to ask for help anytime! greetings from Serbia!

The mod works great and it's a very good gameplay addition.I'll fire up some suggestions:

1.The empty cans could be reusable after storing food in them.Or let us cook the meat even if we don't have those things with us.

2.The meat drops from animals is way to big.160 for a sheep?I could live for months with only that sheep.:p

Instead it could be like Dayz,6 pieces of meat for big animals and 1-2 for small ones like rabbit or chicken.

3.Let us chop wood from any trees.

Otherwise this is a must have mod for those of us who liked the survival aspect in Dayz or take some camping trips.

Love this add-on. Agree with the amounts being too large (unless they spoil quickly if left uncooked).

Doesn't seem to work on boars from my testing. So should be getting meat of a boar, or goat, or any other animal - even a dog if you want to make a desperate "The Road" kind of scenario.

Having trouble getting the meat from animals. I've got the percentages and the speed meter showing up. Interaction buttons are definitely configured correctly - I can take water from rain barrels, for instance, and interact with buildings.

Some fixes required:

Instead of using constant hintSilent for the meters, make a resource to display the same information. This interferes with mission updates and the like that also use hint, hint format, or hintSilent. Might as well tie such a resource in to display ace_stamina, too.

IV Bag.

readme.txt needs to be a bit more accurate, or more clear.

Set it to be able to take water from the "village well" object, and the "hand water pump" object.

Also the wood pile with axe object ought to be usable in some fashion by this mod/scripts.

Great work Tong. Hope you're able to progress it further and polish it up.

@Tong (or anyone who knows)

Can you list version requirements, please?

@Steva:

So far I've been unable to,

Gather meat from creatures (which prevents cooking & canning)

Find anything to cut wood from (haven't checked the "wood pile" object, yet - which prevents making a fire)

What I can do:

Eat to reduce hunger

Drink to reduce thirst

Gather water from rain barrels into canteens

Still to test:

IV bag

I'm noticing that when I suspend a game the RSP displays disappear (and I have to assume stop working). Is this indicative of something I've not done right (CBA version, mod load order, etc.)?
