Is there some way I can disable the MCC unit editor in Zeus? Basically trying to get rid of the "execute" field so my friends can't do the following.

Why you can restrict MCC by playerID

Here is a copy of the body of an email I received from the CBA Team while trouble shooting errors. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MCC does:

_nul = ["MCC_interactionEH", "onEachFrame", {
  // code
}, ""] call BIS_fnc_addStackedEventHandler;

which throws Type String, expected Array because of the params type checking
I think the BIS function was changed in 1.76

CBA has no effect on this; you'll want to talk to the MCC team

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is a rpt.

Thanks,

It's a know bug since the LoW update - it isn't game breaking and it doesn't seems to effect the game. 

 

Nonetheless it will be fixed ASAP

They're not even logged into MCC. They're using Zeus through the curator module and MCC still takes over unless you hold shift.

 

They need access to the MCC console anyway to change the time of day or weather as well as use the delete brush when debris get in the way of a runway or whatever. I just don't want them running scripts.

I beg to differ.

...it breaks the script in Pilgrimage. If I knew more I would elaborate but once load the mission, I get to a certain point in loading and then I get the error and cannot play.

And did Pilgrimage is working fine without MCC?

You don't need to set  a curator module when using MCC as it set it up to you. 

But I'll add an option to disable MCC function on non-MCC curators so you can add zeus users with limited powers.

I have copied this box from a post above. Can any one tell me how to set a Name in the Name section. I can do everything else with it but if I enter a name, click on ADD PRESET, nothing.

Thanks in advance.

Just press OK an just to make it clear It will not change the name of a character it will give it a name in the mission name space:

Example 

name: testDummy

testDummy setdamage 1; 

 

testdummy is dead

There is a new repository for the mod version - where you can follow on updates on the dev version you can also download and PBO it if you like:
https://github.com/shaygman/MCC_sandbox_modDev

How do I get this to work with Arma? I downloaded it and its in a really weird format and wont load in the mod menu.  Sorry for my ignorance, I know nothing about Git repositories.

Hi thanks for the Mod, it fills many gaps in the dynamic environment I am creating, really appreciate your hard work! I have a question, I am adding a couple of extra objects to be searchable via CfgMCCspawnObjects. The system seams to recognise some but not all for example "cwa_C130Wreck","C130J_wreck_EP1", are not recognised. I have read through the thread and followed your formatting so the line looks like this...

 

class MCC_ammoBox {
        itemClasses[] = {"cwa_C130Wreck","C130J_wreck_EP1","woodenbox","luggageheap","pallet_milboxes_f","case"};
        chanceWeapon = 30;
        maxWeapon = 3;
        chanceAmmo = 50;
        maxAmmo = 10;
        chanceMed = 20;
        maxMed = 2;
        chanceFuel = 20;
        maxFuel = 2;
        chanceRepair = 20;
        maxRepair = 2;
        chanceFood = 10;
        maxFood = 2;
        chanceMoney = 5;
        maxMoney = 5;
        chanceFruit = 0;
        maxFruit = 0;
    };

 

I am using the ammo box class as the C-130 wrecks are obviously going to be configured to produce higher levels of Military grade loot but in other instances some of the models/class names, when put into one of the other classes ( EG class MCC_wreckMil) don't seem to be recognised, in game as something that is searchable whereas some are. What am I doing wrong? Is there something special that makes only some objects compatible with this system?  FYI these are the classnames of the objects that I am trying to add ;

 

  "cwa_C130Wreck","C130J_wreck_EP1"
                
  "BlackhawkWreck","acd_cup_UH1Y_crashed"    
                        
 "HMMWVWreck","Land_Wreck_Hunter_F"    

 

     "Land_Wreck_CarDismantled_F","Land_Wreck_Van_F","Land_Bulldozer_01_wreck_F","Land_Excavator_01_wreck_F","Land_Bulldozer_01_abandoned_F","Land_Excavator_01_abandoned_F","Land_CombineHarvester_01_wreck_F"    

 

   "Land_UWreck_FishingBoat_F"

 

    "Land_Wreck_Traw2_F","Land_Wreck_Traw_F"   

 

As I have discovered we cant loot underwater and that sucks (Thanks Bohemia! LOL)

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

@Husker-71 

Sorry for the late reply, 

You don't need to add all the classnames as you can add only "wreck" to the itemClasses as MCC do a generic search for matching strings it will recognize it.

I don't think MCC have a problem with recognizing it rather then a limitation to the minimum distance the player need to be from the object. Since ArmA calculate the distance from the center of the object to the center of the player object  some larger, so some larger objects are exceeding the maximum distance only by its own model size.

Thanks for the reply. I hear you, some of the models were large , like the trawler wreck. I was hoping to loot underwater but have found that whilst the search routine runs it cant open your inventory to move the loot across when you are underwater...sucks. My concern is the Blackhawk wreck and the bulldozer wreck.  What you are saying about the distance from the centre of the object does make sense though. I will mess with the Blackhawk wreck, see if I can get it working.....having lootable helicopter and plane crashes would be beyond awesome!!!!  Thanks for taking the time to answer , Appreciate it!

Thank you for the update!

 

Just trying it out, I seem to have lost the ability to use non vanilla OPFOR forces as main antagonist with missions. For example, I tried using RHS's CHDKZ, CUP's Saharani Liberation Army and a few others and I return an error.

 

What'll then happen is the "Building a Mission" load just hangs, not inserting objectives or populating with OPFOR.

 

Can send a screenshot if you'd like.

Correction: This is when you select a few mission options. The Capture/Kill missions produce the error, but at least finish loading.
