MCC Sandbox 3 - Dynamic mission creating tool for ArmA 3

Recommended Posts

GAIA units use smoke. They use it (chance of) when a group has suffered casualties. So if you see groups use smoke that did not have casualties, that is not gaia. If you hold multiple mods throwing smokes then it might lead to excessive use. There is currently not an option to disable it, but i can easily provide such an option in next release. Shorter said: yes gaia uses smoke, but please take a look at other mods also. The combination might be the problem.

Did you ever put this feature in so that you can disable GAIA using smoke grenades? It breaks immersion when aggressors use smoke which is a big deal for me.

Huh? That wasn't my question LOL. Once I have place it, how do I delete it or move it? I don't mind if it's 'virtual' LOL.

Well that was the answer – because it is virtual you can't really control it. I can make that replacing it will restart the circling all over again in a new position.

Why aggressors don't use smoke grenades?! We'll check this out maybe add a variable to disable AI smoke grenades.

BIS disabled the save to clipboard on MP – so no. You can always save to profile.

Save to profile - well, it saves to profile - client.

So if you are playing on a server save to profile, then open a local host session then load if from profile and then save it to SQM.

Why would they carry them and not use ? I assume you can just remove the smoke from their inventory with a little bit bit of init code.

{ if (getText (configFile>>"cfgMagazines">>"ammo") isKindOf "SmokeShell") then {removeMagazine _x} } forEach magazines this

I'm not sure if the mod is working correctly. I get all kinds of black popups with codes in the middle of the screen, in game and in mcc gui. Msg like this "...his select 1 --((mcc_keybinds select 1) Error zero divisor

That shouldnt be there, or?

Started using your mod with friends for dynamical coop gameplays and it's great so far!

But I have little question about zones, when I don't want to use it anymore or whatever, is there any way to delete it?

Also little bug report:

When I try to secure subject (HVT) it does nothing just some error with _action(I have showing script errors enabled).

Also when I delete all units(mostly garrison) save it as mission in user profile, reload it, units spawn in zone again.

But it is really great mod :) don't know why I haven't used it in A2 :confused:

Nope just define the key bindings in the login menu and this should solve it.

How do you delete the units?

Did the player securing the hostage has MCC runing?

Yes, I was runing MCC, also hosted session.

Well, I am not really sure. Dunno if it was with Zeus or MCC. But most of them were dead.

Yep, GAIA controlls will be in next or the release after that. Handing over the variables to shay today or tomorrow. So then it needs a gui thingy and should be there.

You will get control over:

- caching distance

- Ambient usage (flares/smoke) on/off

- Ambient usasge chance (often, normal, rare) (so how often is smoke used -> when conditions are met) It basicly rolls a dice

- If NON gaia controlled units can be used for attacks (default has always been off, but now you can put it on ) If used on true, all units on the map can be used by gaia to support her cause.

- Response ranges for footmobiles, vehicles and air units (what is their max distance to be used in attacks, so how far out do they support gaia in attacks)

- Mortar/artillery resting periods (how much time should there be between a mortar strike and its next strike on a NEW conflict area)

- Resting time for transport vehicles (how long should vehicles wait before they can do another service request for gaia to transport troops).

And probably more will join over time. All done to give you full support.

I tried making a Base on my dedicated server then saved it with the MCC profile option. Next i started a new editor (local) map and tried loading the MCC profile. Nothing was added to the new map, none of the objects or players.

Hello Shay's community!

I want to do my own presets. I have the mod version. Now the question is how. Can somebody help me?

I want these:

,['Box: Infantry', 'init_handle = _this execVM "MEU\infantry.sqf";']
,['Box: ACE', 'init_handle = _this execVM "MEU\ace.sqf";']
,['Box: Recruit', 'init_handle = _this execVM "MEU\recruit.sqf";']

I've tried already change it in init.sqf but it not the way probably ;)

Thanks you for all future respondes.

Me and my mate have been using your mod for quite some time, awesome mod and thanks for making it by the way, but we've run into an issue.

When ever I want to spawn something from the "Helicopter" tab, it drops down into a black tab with nothing selectable, same with the motorcycle tab.

I've got other mods installed with "Play with Six", I've tried removing all my currently installed mods except MCC to no avail. Obi-Wan, you are my only hope. :P

Regards,

Barton.

EDIT1: http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/571149430028196503/45276DA44E92032D147897C64914DB3CD4CE6E43/ (523 kB)

I am having the same trouble with the helicopters not appearing in the MCC editor too. I do not know if it is a mod that is interfering with it but helicopters do not appear in the spawn menu for any faction. Will post any updates when I remive some mods.

>>>UPDATE<<<

I believe I found the reason for the bug that Barton and I are encountering and I think it is due to the new Helicopter Flight Model DLC, which has been released in the development build already but not the Stable build.

Steps to recreate:

1. Update Arma 3 to latest Dev Build in Steam

2. Create a mission or run a Scenario

3. Login to MCC and try to place a Helo in the 3D editor, it should now show the black screen Barton was referring to

Since the DLC is not in the Stable branch, it could be fixed on its own, but I have a feeling it won't and will be something like the 1.24 sound problems.

Thanks for reading my feedback and keep up the awesome work with my #1 favorite mod!

Hey uhm, I can't be arsed to look trough some 200 pages, so if any of you guys could help me out, is there a way to save a players gear (uniform, contents of the vest, backpack and all) in MCC? I saw some option saying "save" but I'm thinking that's saving the whole environment, correct me if I'm wrong. Aight, that'd be all mates.

-Regards,

Deny.

Can you save anything to your profile? maybe the path folder is read only?

Yes we can.

MCC got built in gear save so you can save your gear after resawpn (in mission settings) but you can't save gear templates as in VAS.

Combobox? Is that the dropdown menu for the vanilla Editor or a part of MCC? I will be glad to verify if I'm seeing any pics on my system.

The dropdown menu in MCC as in the Spawn tab when you choose vehicle you should see a little picture of the vehilce before its name - for some reason I can't see them anymore.

BIS broke something. I just tried VTS, that has also such dropdown menu, without any addon : icons are gone...
