ALiVE - Advanced Light Infantry Virtual Environment

Recommended Posts

Quick question (for anyone):

Working on a system that allows you to log into a Satellite to check on an area of interest.

Since ALiVE doesn't actually spawn in stuff until you're near; anyone know how you could get them to show up while viewing through an airborne camera view?

One option I'm considering is, to maybe teleport the player into the area and then back again while he/she is viewing the faux-screen. This should work fine in SP. But in MP anyone around them would see them blink out and then back in.

Thoughts?

Goblin,

You can try to use a UAV to do this... the UAV flight will spawn units in an area just like the player. :D

Hope this helps,

Fantastic idea. Will try later. So simple. Thanks!

Fallujah requires A3MP and A3MP_AP, are you sure you have them both loaded?

I have no idea if anything in A3MP has changed since we indexed those maps so can't really help beyond what Rath says above. If anyone else can repro the issue and confirm it's a problem with ALiVE (and not A3MP) then please log a ticket and we'll check it out.

Rath - struggling to repro your issue. Even on a fairly high setting it takes CQB no more than 5 to 10 mins to populate Altis on my dedi. CQB should never take that long unless you have it on max pop and density across the whole of Altis, in which case it will be trying to fill every position in every building on the entire map. Incidentally, if you want to populate CQB across the whole map you don't need to set a TAOR marker at all, just leave it blank.

For maps this big and with so many enterable buildings, you really don't want to set it to more than 2% and min density. Otherwise I can only think you either have an old copy of ALiVE or do not have the latest ArmA3 version, which may be causing problems. Cherno/Fallujah are not good comparison as they have far fewer enterable buildings (for comparison, using arbitrary numbers you are populating 2% of 500 positions on Chern vs 2% of 10000 on Altis)

I have it set to 50%/very high because my group likes things as difficult as possible :)

Our first ALiVE map that I made was Fallujah actually, with 50%/high and a MilCP of 1200 over the city. It was insane but so much fun.

I will try Altis CQB at 2%/low and see what happens, thanks for the info friznit all the work you guys have done on ALiVE it is awesome!

That is a BIS bug that has been around a while if I remember correctly. I believe it is on the list to be fixed, but it doesn't affect anything and the duplicate button works fine.

X39 - There're are a lot of errors caused by addons in that RPT. One or two undeclared variables in ALiVE that I can see but the majority seem to be addon related. Do the ALiVE Civ Pop errors occur without all the addon units used?

Rath - explains a lot! But as said, pleas bear in mind how many more possible CQB locations Altis has compared to Fallujah, where most of the buildings are non-enterable.

1PARA: BIS issue (still). It doesn't effect anything but if you don't like it you can simply rejoin and it should go away.

Please open a ticket on our issue tracker and attach it to that and we'll take a look (busy week though so may take us a few days).

Also assuming you have checked your War Room settings / server IP / password / alive cfg file / updated ALiVE plugins folder as per last update / if in doubt redownloaded ArmA2net

I set up a scenario/mission earlier. I placed all the boxes, alive required, opcom, etc. When I spawn in I am getting a message "There are no profiles for this OPCOM instance! Please assign troops to this OPCOM!" So I went back and selected a different faction for the opcom thinking maybe I had misspelled the faction/unit I originally assigned, but I'm still receiving the same message.

I have google searched this and came up with nothing, can you provide any guidance?

Thursday88 - OPCOM needs to be synced (not grouped) to a Military Placement module that has at least one location in which to spawn troops. You can turn debug on to check that MP is picking up suitable locations. You must also have the Profiles system module placed. Please see the wiki and tutorial missions for more guidance.

All3n - try setting a TAOR rather than a blacklist. The units may be moving into those areas after spawning (though you may not see this if it's happening during the init phase)

Hi,

Is it a known issue that ALiVE AI settings and Zeus unit AI don't appear to tally up on dedicated servers? I have set up the ALiVE AI module setting BLU_F as elite and OPF_F as recruits. I have then editor placed and ALiVE profiled a NATO rifle squad heading in one direction, jumped into the mission and Zeus placed a CSAT rifle squad heading in the opposite direction.

The CSAT squad consistently wins the engagement (walkover) even changing the in-game Zeus slider to make CSAT zero skill they still consistently win vs the NATO rifle squad.

The CSAT squad consistently wins the engagement (walkover) even changing the in-game Zeus slider to make CSAT zero skill they still consistently win vs the NATO rifle squad.

It's a known feature of Zeus that AI are spawned on the client machine of the person in the Zeus slot, so they won't be effected by any server-side AI modifiers.

X39 - I wasn't aware that it was? I know nothing about GUI editing - will have one of the guys look into it.

Charliereddog - who what when why? Related to ALiVE? More info needed!
