Yes, for the most part. Although using MCC Gaia and ALiVE AI commander do weird things together.

Hi all, first of I wanna say I'm a massive fan of mcc, been using it since a2 but just recently I've been using it along-side headless client and have ran into some issues.

  • cannot use fortify when offloading to the HC (units just become static and do nothing in gaia or player controled)
  • cannot use create placement at all (map clicking to place units doesn't work, can only place units by spawning in zone)
  • get in and get out of vehicles waypoints don't work (tested by placing a truck down then trying to make ai get in, they just moved to the vehicle and did nothing)
  • waypoint placement in general is abit hit and miss sometimes it works sometimes it don't.

but other than that I dont have issues using HC with the other features like GAIA, zone spawning (besides fortify), arty and cas, reinforcements, evac, ied etc etc etc.

 

Another question I have has to do with custom groups, I know you can make them for your standard inf and vehicles but is there a way to define what classes are used for reinforcement spawns? I use RHS quite abit and would like to have a mi8 drop of Russian troops instead of the Taru. My same question apply's to the wheeled reinforcements, being able to select the vehicles used would be cool to if able to do it.

 

Regardless, thank you for the awesome mod.

For some reason when I go to save all to SQM or save to SQM it never puts a .sqm in my clipboard. Any ideas how to fix this? Only MCC is being run, using the latest version.

I'm glad for any help / advice.

 

I know that if you put too much info in the init of a unit (by double clicking a unit while in Zeus with the MCC mod) then the save feature of MCC becomes lagged/glitched. I've tested this out multiple times and can reproduce it.

 

To reproduce:

  1. Place a unit down in Zeus
  2. Call Arsenal on it (with Zeus modules)
  3. Make a custom loadout and click export
  4. Paste that exported loadout into the unit's init (to get the init double click on unit while in Zeus)
  5. Repeat this for two or three more units
  6. Save to clipboard won't work!

Actually, you can get it to work by double clicking on all those units again (the box comes up with rank, stance, init, etc). Then closing that box without any changes. The save to clipboard will work now, but it will take a little time to be saved into memory (you'll see a 20 or 30 second lag before the sidechat message appears). Then if you copy that data into your mission.sqm, there is vary good chance it will corrupt the sqm file. Every time you load the mission, the game will crashing complaining about memory.

 

I have reproduce this multiple times. To be honest, I just avoid the init feature because I'm afraid it will cause this issue. I have successfully made MCC missions before and still do, but that init feature gave me headaches till I learned to stay away from it.

Can some way of adding working AA-areas be incorporated into MCC?

That is an easy answer. Create a zone. Place AA units into it and "give to gaia".

 

The behavior of the AA unit (if vehicle) is to hide and relocate every now and then.

On your git hub you have 2 branches the master and GAIA not sure if you knew that. Suggestion is could you make the GAIA the Master. When first looking at it it shows you last edited it 2 years ago lol. Great Update cant wait to use it with my unit! Great Video!!!

Congratulations Shay, Spirit and Psycho.

@sarghken that's not how it works, the master branch is a branch that is stable, a good git workflow imply that you don't dev on master but that you create feature branches that you merge once that feature / fix is done and reviewed.

any plan on rewriting the whole thing (for obvious reasons)?

The whole thing ?

The fact that your .cpp(s) are not binarized.

The whole file hierarchy makes no sense.

The fact that those exist: http://puu.sh/k0BTs/6851b2cd05.png

 

and that's only the tip of the iceberg

 

Nope. No plans.
