The next generation dynamic persistent campaign for ArmA3

Release 0.8

Command & Control

Similar to the Logistics capabilities we added in 0.7, this release adds another set of important tactical support functions. The ALiVE C2ISTAR Module provides the first in a series of tools for players to communicate, disseminate and record mission critical information via advanced map markers, drawing tools and a suite of tactical reports and returns. Additionally, both Player and AI Commanders (OPCOM) can issue missions and tasks on the fly with the Player Tasks Module. This will automatically generate tactical and logistics tasks in support of OPCOM’s current objectives and is an invaluable tool for ensuring player activity stays aligned to the ebb and flow of the battle. Grab an ALiVE Tablet from the Support Crate and check it out! See the ALiVE WIki for further details.

We have given some love to a number of existing modules, including a completely revamped Multispawn system that includes an immersive helicopter insertion, respawns in buildings and HQ vehicles as well as group or faction level respawns. We've added some long awaited improvements to Combat Support, such as the ability to sync editor placed vehicles with an init line to the CS module. There are lots of other bugs fixes and feature requests too, so be sure to check out the full change log!

There have been some important changes and improvements to lots of modules based on user feedback. Please check the Release Highlights below!

Server Admins: This build requires the latest ALiVEPlugIn.dll found in the archive. Please update your servers!







War Room

As Tupolov reported recently, we were forced to wipe Player Stats sooner than expected whilst applying some updates to War Room. This has no impact on existing persistent mission data. We will continue to add new functionality to War Room over the coming months to develop the integrated C2ISTAR and Operations Room concept. More details will be posted in due course. Meanwhile, if you’ve not done so already register with us now and start taking advantage of ALiVE mission persistence and battlefield data feeds.

Release Highlights

  • Multispawn - added various options including an immersive heli insertion.
  • ALIVE Splashscreen can now be disabled by removing the pbo from @ALIVE/addons.
  • Single Player Savegame can be enabled via the Requires ALiVE module.
  • C2ISTAR Player Tasks - players require an ALiVE_Tablet to access. Player Tasks have been removed from the OPCOM module.
  • OPCOM - Removed autogenerated OPCOM tasks in favor for C2ISTAR and added functions to allow players to jump directly to the nearest action (See Wiki)
  • Garbage Collector - added the ability to exclude objects (wrecks, corpses, vehicles etc) by syncing to the module. Also a setVariable option.
  • Combat Support - added ability to sync editor placed crewed vehicles with custom init lines (See Wiki)
  • Player Logistics - added the ability to exclude objects by syncing to the “Disable Logistics†module. Also a variable can be set according to setVariable option.

Several important fixes:

  • Profiles: fix for playable AI team members getting deleted if profiled.
  • Player Logistics: fixed enableSimulation issue.
  • CQB: now works on the Server again and no longer ignores Blacklists if also TAOR markers were used.
  • Combat Support: now deletes crew from destroyed CS vehicles.
  • MP: fix for parachuting vehicles on some A2 maps.

Disclaimer

ALiVE is still in BETA and subject to change. We may need to clear database data before major updates but we will let you know well in advance if this happens. We have done our best to ensure backward compatibility for your missions. However, in case you get a new error with an existing mission, please delete and replace the offending module in the editor and you should be good to go again. As usual, please post any issues or feature requests on our tracker.

NOTE: mil_convoys is now deprecated and will be removed in a future release. We'll leave it in for the moment so it doesn't break missions but it will be gone in the future. Fair warning!

Work In Progress

The theme for 0.9 release is consolidation and enhancement. A primary goal for ALiVE is to deliver an intuitive, easy to use modular system and we’re concerned that this beast is getting a little unwieldy, so we going to rationalise a lot of the modules and create a more logical structure. This will unavoidably have an impact on backwards compatibility for existing missions so we will post full details on our Wiki in due course. Aside from that, we are working on an easy mode “plonk and play†quick start module and adding more detailed instructions to module ‘Show Info’ and the in game Field Manual. We’ll also be working on the new Insurgency module.

We also finally succumbed and entered the Make ArmA Not War contest. See our submission here.

Thanks To

Special thanks to everyone here for supporting us with donations to the War Room. Database hosting isn’t free and the overwhelming popularity of ALiVE means we are using rather more data than we originally anticipated. If you want to contribute to keep the War Room ALiVE (see what I did there) then please find the Donate button at ALiVEmod.com!

Have fun!

I use 1 military civilian plaement only - as units i use mostly - caf ag, might it have something with players that have dc or got kicked and then they rejoin? I will do some testing with diffrent mods and setings, and see if i find something.

Please test with Rel 0.8. Many of these issues are down to locality challenges (all to do with running stuff in the right order on server vs client). Both BI and we have been working on nailing some bugs that can effect the way scripts work on servers so hopefully there will be some improvements.

New version frontpaged on the Armaholic homepage.

================================================

We have also "connected" these pages to your account (wolffy.au) on Armaholic.

This means in the future you will be able to maintain these pages yourself if you wish to do so. Once this new feature is ready we will contact you about it and explain how things work and what options you have.

When you have any questions already feel free to PM or email me!

** Note:

since this is a project on which more people are working we will contact you in the future to discuss how you want this to be setup on Armaholic.

Release Highlights

[*] Single Player Savegame can be enabled via the Requires ALiVE module.

Wait a minute... Does this mean that Alive is now compatible with SP saves?

Wait a minute... Does this mean that Alive is now compatible with SP saves?

Not really. This was added at popular request to get around the issue that some people had trying to save regular games when ALiVE was running. However, it should *in theory* be possible to save ALiVE SP games BUT: A. It may not work, B. It may not load correctly and C. The game will probably crash. So try it at your own risk. The best way to achieve persistence is still to join a "local dedicated server.exe" and plug your details into the War Room.

@ARJay

Good news! The magically disappearing squad members appears to be fixed since 0.80.

Also, Alive is amazing! It absolutely makes Arma feel...well...alive. It's exactly what Arma has always been missing.

Thank you.

Profiles: fix for playable AI team members getting deleted if profiled.

Just had this happen on a dedicated server, was commanding a tank and the gunner / driver decided to vanish. It may have been something else since there's a few scripts going, including Zeus. I'll see if it happens again tonight.

Very nice I have been waiting for this. I read through the changelog but any chance the AGM no radio conflict was resolved or is that on the side of the AGM devs to fix?

It was replaced in 0.7 I believe; the enhanced Logistics module handles it all now somehow (I've not had enough chance to play around with it to say how, though).

Thanks for this release - definitely looking forward to getting on with it.

Great Update, the ReSupply "Join Group" now works great! However I don't see the Support Vehicles in the Resupply List? Repair, Fuel, Ammo?

Thanks for all the hard work!

If you do experience this please post your client and server RPT file if possible.

Yes the logistics module handles all that stuff now (convoys, reinforcements, etc). Instead of just random convoys from A to B you now get logistics convoys carrying supplies/troops to the front lines (or the nearest held objective). These can be by land or air (yes helis will fly in with more troops and drop them off). This also allows players the option of intercepting enemy logistics and affecting the overall battle by denying the enemy reinforcements.

ALiVE will also 'dynamically' determine where to insert the units and where to send them once they arrive. High Priority locations (mil bases with helipads, airports, etc) are preferred and if not found, ALiVE will look for low priority bases or marine civilian locations. There is a 'fixed' option as well in the module params.

This requires a Military Logistics module - for further details check the wiki:

http://alivemod.com/wiki/index.php/Military_Logistics

**Only sync one Log module to each OPCOM**

I have been trying to get the persistence working on my server. (When I shoot someone, I want to login the next day and not have them waving back at me.) So I have been following all the instructions to the last detail. I'm stuck on getting @arma2net to work. When I place it in my mod line, two things happen. First, when I try to connect to my server I just freeze up. I can thankfully still press escape in this state and return to the server selection menu. also when I close my server, it turns into a background task instead of actually closing.(I then have to go into task manager and close it.) All of this goes away if I take arma2net out of my mod line. I've been downloading it from the server instructions on war room and placing the new addins in the proper place but nothing fixes it. any suggestions?

Hi,

Has anyone else had an issue with the persistence module (set to local... i.e., no database) and the multispawn module reps awning the player without ammo? All other gear and uniforms come back, just not ammo.

I raised this question prior to 0.8, but as the respawn module was incomplete, would readdress when 0.8 was released.

Before I start tearing down other mods to uncover whether they are the source of the problem, perhaps someone can confirm for me that when one uses the respawn module and the persistence module together (again, memory only, not database persisted), one's gear and ammo are fully replaced upon respawn?

Thanks!

First make sure @arma2net is actually loading on your server (RPT will tell you this). Some launchers don't recognize @arma2net as a valid mod as it does not have an "Addons" subfolder (this is easy to get around.. just create an empty one). For further troubleshooting please post up your server.cfg file and your server's RPT file (to pastebin or other host).

Hi,

Has anyone else had an issue with the persistence module (set to local... i.e., no database) and the multispawn module reps awning the player without ammo? All other gear and uniforms come back, just not ammo.

I raised this question prior to 0.8, but as the respawn module was incomplete, would readdress when 0.8 was released.

Before I start tearing down other mods to uncover whether they are the source of the problem, perhaps someone can confirm for me that when one uses the respawn module and the persistence module together (again, memory only, not database persisted), one's gear and ammo are fully replaced upon respawn?

Thanks!

I assume you have tested it with yesterday's 0.80 release? If so try removing any unit/weapon mods as well as revive or gear scripts.

First make sure @arma2net is actually loading on your server (RPT will tell you this). Some launchers don't recognize @arma2net as a valid mod as it does not have an "Addons" subfolder (this is easy to get around.. just create an empty one). For further troubleshooting please post up your server.cfg file and your server's RPT file (to pastebin or other host). Also there is an ALiVE Skype channel which is often more useful for troubleshooting database issues.

Thank you so much for being so devoted to your excellent add-on.

Hi,

To narrow down any persistence issues I suggest that you try in a "clean" environment and see if it works basically before adding up further mods! Please run up the demo "ALiVE Air Assault" (takes a few mins to init, give it some time) with only cba, alive and arma2net - no other mods. This should give you an indication that your server is set up correctly. if it fails there theres something fundamentally wrong and you need to go even lower, if it works then narrow down the conflicting addon by removing bit by bit of your mish!

Please report back if it worked

thanks for the heads up about the convoys. i knot is trivial, but, it adds so much to small missions.

Code is still there, its just scoped out so existing missions wont break! try out the mil logistics and see if it fits your needs, im sure you will like it!
