One question, how is it defined in files/config what is "(free) platform" content and what is DLC "locked" ?

AFAIK, it is based on the model location. In fact, HEMTT (Cargo) which is changed to the platform recently, model location is:

model = "a3\Soft_F_Gamma\Truck_01\Truck_01_cargo_F.p3d";

I just tested it on the latest dev branch, and no mater what I do, I cannot reproduce the clipping you are having.

 

Are you using the default view?

Just discovered something about the scientist uniforms.

 

you can edit their VIP passes!

 

put a unit down with this scientist clothing on

and go to their init page.

there the last section you will find a texture tab for these passes.

remove the texture on them to remove the VIP passes if you want. :f: 

 

EDIT 1

 

they seem to work only for the scientist units from the european civilians.

Good idea. That will afford the advantage for applying that on some units instead of global behavior like enableSentences and enableRadio.

At this time, the only command (if I'm right) which can be applied on units is disableConversation, but this command is not accurate for radio.

Or perhaps a setSkill... That could be fine if a distance could be parametered:
_unit setSkill ["RADIOPROTOCOL", 300]; // within 300 m, the unit is quiet on radio (only), in AWARE and STEALTH mode (doesn't apply on COMBAT mode).

 

If not possible, perhaps the 150m which seems to be hard coded (tested on runway, aware group, no eny report), could be increased (300m or in game Setting difficulty).

 

Perhaps using the object: electronics & sensors / data link position (not active by default). I tested in vanilla, that makes no difference for AIs repeatedly asking your position. So, if this feature could impact on these useless reports, that could be fine!

The step further could be that AI stops (or takes cover) when he doesn't know where you are.

At present time:

AI always regroups (on order), no matter yelling for your position (weird!), asking toooo soon where you are what ever the combat mode is. Not really stealth!

 

Please dev:

AI stops/ takes cover/ regroups on fellow's known position  when he looses yours. Radio protocol depends on behavior mode, last order is regroup (for asking the position),  use of setSkill and/or electronics & sensors could be versatile.

Thanks

Thanks, that's useful for the Livonian Defense Force Showcase mission I'm working on.

 

Now, if we could have a texture option for the ugly neckties we'd be all set.

You can already retexture the tie, using the texture from 'Nikos Formal'.

Found in: Character_f_epc > Civil > data > nikos_aged_wear_co.

I reckon Neil deGrasse Tyson would disagree.

You can also hide the pass althogether — using setObjectTexture, the whole uniform (tie included) is 0, the pass is 1, and the frame for the pass is 2. Sending one and two after a blank texture will leave you with a nice shirt sans pocket, though you could probably make one by changing the pass texture.

Looking forward to the release next week. I have made an Livonia Exile server, ready to go for the launch date.

Just wondering if the alien mothership will be:

+ An air vehicle I can load ai into.
+ A unmanned vehicle (UAV or UGV stomper class).
+ A static prop?

It would help me with getting ready to code it in.

Next dev update needs to add a 4th texture tab for the tie.

Apologies for quoting you and not answering your question, I'm on a phone.

what is interesting to me about this picture is there appears to be a reflection of the mothership lights on the player. Am I right in thinking that the game engine does not support this?

Yes. When I first saw it, I assumed it was distant and big, but it isn't.

The light on the character in the screenshot are likely done with the new 'light' placeables.

Yes, that would be great, the silly ties kinda of ruin what are otherwise nice textures. Being able to change the ties would make the uniforms much more useful.

If you watch the BI video promoting the sandbox content, at the end, there is a massive shadow on the ground of this"alien ship". If that's not just a post processing effect, and was actually in game, the "mothership" would be huge.

I always considered it a type of Probe. I also don'd thing we wil see any alien life form, just a probe and alien "artifacts".

We wouldn't know.

 

I mean, for all we know, the aliens could have mushroom size and that screenshot shows as big as it gets.

Assumes that the Aliens need ships. Maybe the ships -are- the Aliens. We're predisposed to think that they'll be similar to us (thus, roswell grey little men), but considering how vastly different most life on earth is to us, that's a bad assumption. Plus, flesh bodies are bad for space travel, so it is likely that whatever intelligence reaches us through space will have moved beyond easily destroyed, evolved bodies.

 

Maybe the Ships aren't even an entire Alien, but just tiny particles of the entire creature, sort of like our antibodies are part of us. We just don't know.

 

Though I'd be really interested in an Arma based sci-fi Universe (like a better Mass Effect), if these Aliens are well thought out, maybe it could work. CSATs device for example can only feasibly work through alien technology that knows something about the universe that we don't. So, Aliens seem to be the logical step forward from the device.
