ALiVE - Advanced Light Infantry Virtual Environment

Recommended Posts

So it appears they have slowed down with the updates for Kunduz Afghanistan map, has anyone indexed this map for alive yet?

Also is there and tutorials out there for indexing maps?

Indexing is only done by developers as of now due to it being a very complicated and and long process.

Kunduz index will be available in next release.

The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3

Release 0.9.8

[table=width: 100%]

[tr]

[td]Optimisation

The main focus of this release is performance, optimisation and bug fixing as well as compatibility for CBA_A3 RC6 and Kunduz map! We have been polishing up some of the older modules and exercising the new commands introduced by ArmA3 1.44 and the latest CBA. Also in this release is the second iteration of Asymmetric Warfare Environment, which includes a lot of bug fixes and tweaks - many thanks to everyone for providing feedback and please keep it coming! There's been a bit of a hiatus with map indexing because we've been working on a new process that should hopefully simplify and reduce the effort required. Our newest team member, Cry3rn, has been hard at work reviewing the scripts and while there is no standalone tool for indexing, if all goes well with the current work it is something we hope to be able to provide in the future.

Release Highlights

  • Optimization enhancements to module loading and AI spawning
  • Improvements and fixes to Asymmetric Warfare Environment
  • Added support for Kunduz and Gorgona
  • Several small enhancements to improve the user experience
  • Dead people no longer answer back
  • Compatibility with CBA_A3 RC6 and introducing key binding for ALiVE

Please note that as with all updates, if you have an issue loading a mission made with a previous version of ALiVE, delete and replace the modules in that mission.

Want to join our team?

We are still recruiting people that are interested in being part of a close knit dev team. We welcome anyone who fancies a go at SQF scripting, Javascript/PHP development (for War Room) and C++/C# development for our ALiVE extension. ALiVE is an opportunity to build your experience of any of these technologies in a fun mod development environment.

Disclaimer

ALiVE is still in BETA and subject to change. We may need to clear persistent database data from the War Room before major updates but we will try to 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.

Work In Progress

We're now on the final few sprints in the run up to the official 1.0 release. The continuing focus is to ensure ALiVE is a intuitive and robust as we can make it. There are a lot of features we would like to enhance but it's abundantly clear we won't achieve all of them in the time frame we've set ourselves. We still have a lot to do and many more ideas besides, so the 1.0 release will certainly not be the last.

ALiVE has transformed my Arma 3 experience, how can I thank you?

Please feel free to donate! It costs us about $65 per month to run our War Room website and ALiVE Database servers. Donate here http://www.alivemod.com/#Donate

Special thanks to everyone here for supporting us with donations to the ALiVE mod development effort.

Have fun!

"Added Admin actions debug toggle for showing OPCOM installations" Really small but immensely helpful improvement. Can now play without worrying that something might not working properly. Can't wait to get back to playing Insurgency missions with the new fixes and improvements.

Edit: Just saw the HUMINT addition.... Love it, kept trying to replicate it myself with little success of doing it in a simple way.

Hi everyone,

Firstly, thank you all for your great Mod!

Then, I would like to tell you about that problem I have:

Well, it is in french so I translated it, but it is written :

Arma 3 was closed unexpectedly. Info :

Output code : 0x00000001/1

Reason : Unknown

Duration of execution : 09:08:45

The game was startede with the following parameters : -nothing :confused: ! -

There is nothing more. It happens every 10 minutes aproximately after starting an ALiVE scenario.

Maybe have you an idea...

Thank you :) !

You need to post the issue to our bug tracker along with your mission and logs. Please ensure this is reproducible with just CBA and ALiVE.

This is odd I've never heard of this problem.. seems way too specific though.. how do you know it's the transport module causing it? Also is this something new since 1.44 update yesterday?

Check your CQB module and see if the spawn setting for helis is set (ie: not zero) - could be those units spawning in that are causing the lag (especially if CQB is set to spawn units on clients).

Transport module used to generate sometime a yellow chain and a crash of server. CQB is enable only for infantry, not helos nor jets on our server. I'll give you feedback with the new ALiVE version (0.9.8), since it has new improvements, that issue may have vanish.

Something I've never asked but have thought about a few times...

How does the Player Support module handle fuel? Like I've got a "battle taxi/rearm" helo and a medevac helo that I'll be using in a long campaign. What if they run out of fuel? I mean if they blow up they'll just respawn for me, but I'm wondering about fuel management.

excuse me if this has been gone over. but is there a command to speed and slow down opcom speed? i have an Asymmetric setup i wanna have already ready to go with all the installations....but do i HAVE to sit on the server and wait for everything to kinda populate or can i execute a command in debug to speed things up then bring things back down once there is enough traction on the enemy's side?

Follow up question. The sabotage and enemy insurgent movements. How we do ID these movement? do we get lucky and find them? will C2IStar give us an autotask to intercept insurgents that are on a sabotage mission? or do we see them setup IED? im trying to figure out how to work the battlespace and i dunno if im over-thinking the capabilities. will we NEED a bluefor opcom to get the full effect of the enemy Asymmetric warfare mode? If so....what mode do we set bluefor? just figured i have a Zargabad setup starting small and wanted to get the FULL effects of Asymmetric warfare module...do our own recon and ID targets etc.

I posted the update on their website notifying them about the update. I don't know why they haven't updated it.

Not really a debug command, but you can speed up virtual profiles movement (125%) look in the Virtual AI module. For testing in SP I use that setting and just crank up the game speed to 4x.. things move along pretty quickly. Unfortunately this is not possible on a server.
