[SP/MP][COOP] Patrol Operations - Official Thread

Recommended Posts

I’ll update the beta once more as I update the position functions for the operations. Then it’s released.

 

I aim to do more of these sessions as 1. It’s motivating me to keep going and 2. I hope people can use the info.

 

once PO4 is out, I may do this on demand if people want to learn how to use the framework to develop TAC missions for their community.

If you need help with documentation I am sure there are a few, that will help out, me included.

 

As I stated before, I am really interested in the A3 MPSF side of things. A3 MPSF could become the "combat patrol" mode we all envisioned, but BI has ignored. 

 

On a side note.....

I uploaded PO3 to our group server. And it still runs like a champ. Which after 6 years since it's release is amazing! Outside of some mission issues that were known, I haven't seen any NEW issues. That is a testament to your code. After all the Arma updates, and PO3 still runs great.

Thanks mate, I will take you up on that when the time comes.

Combat was an interesting game mode but never really played it much other than the launch. PO/MPSF would definitely be a good tool to create something more.

Thanks mate, a lot of effort went into PO and at the time I tried hard to make it as universal as possible for that exact reason. I'm glad to see it still holds up.

 

Cheers!

Here is how to create new tasks in the MPSF framework, either for Patrol Ops or your TAC mission

Setting up new operation types and multistage operations in PO4.

 

 

For those interested, I created a playlist of the dev streams from the twitch feed. Plan is I'm trying to complete at least one per week to make sure progress is still going and to allow others realtime input into the ideas.

Hi Roy, 

 

Can't handle watching the videos! Driving me crazy!

 

It's looking great. Can't wait to be able to create content. Comparing to original documentation, looks very familiar. 

 

IMHO on locations, if possible...

 

 Insurgents would establish camps in forested valley areas, far from roads and urban areas to conceal smoke from fires, and overhead drone and satellite views. They would occupy steeper and narrower terrain to limit forces to maneuver in that space. NW Altis mountains is an example of that. 

 

Not sure if possible to find a location based on terrain features like valley, or draw. I've tried using BIS_fnc_findSafePos and selectBestPlaces with not much success. 

Just an idea... 

 

Keep up the great work. Amazing stuff in the videos.

definitely  is. You can use "forest" to identify concealed areas with tree cover and we could create locations in the metadata to identify viable locations outlined as described.

Did another session (quiet one) going through the Logistics scripts for the trucks to support some of the operation types that require transport of shipping containers and supplies

@roy86 just a thought, but if your building missions,  can we assume the framework is done and ready for beta test 2?


Additionally are the modules i.e. vehicle depot, stand alone module? Or is there dependencies on the framework? 

imho and ive truly have been humbled trying to create small functions, its amazing the coding you’ve put into this. I understand the time it takes to write test rewrite and repeat that thousands of times across hundreds of files. THANK YOU!

After that last session, yes. I had to reimplement a logistics process for some of the operation types that require the movement of objects on trucks.

Now that it is working, the final check is some MP tests to ensure this version is stable and an update will be published.

There are some small dependencies like addActions and event handler framework. I wrote them in the current form so I can go back and build stand-alone versions easily.

And thank you for the support. Building so it is SP+MP compatible, scalable, variable and stable takes time so I appreciate everyone's patience and support as we go.

 

Cheers,

A bit, is like a yonder. It is only known to the person who utters it.
