Recommended Posts

^ Blasted doctor!! I was hoping for #1000

:936:

I didn't look up the thread now, but someone wrote how to use the different input fields on the module param fields! Thanks for the one who posted that (i really would have forgotten about that)!

I believe it was hlfritz who did the legwork of submitting a ticket.

The next generation dynamic persistent campaign for ArmA3

We are happy to release the latest update for ALiVE, which includes some of the new gucci features we’ve been talking about in here over the last couple of weeks. There have been over

Major highlights for this this release include:

- Hugely decreased initialisation times. ALIVE now initialises before the mission briefing screen.

- Added support for many A2 maps and the A3 Map Pack

- Added support for some popular customs factions (eg. African Rebels)

- Full support for AllInArmA Iron Front 44 in (oh yeah…!)

- Combat Support now features artillery, a SITREP function, shared allied assets and vehicle respawn

- Option to enable view for helis/jets/grunts (ranges configurable on module)

- Many ALIVE_CQB improvements including a density setting, support for ArmA2 buildings and a better spread of positions

- Several performance optimisations (especially POC-functions and Garbage Collector)

Disclaimer

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 here.

Work In Progress

We are currently hard at work deploying SYS_Data, SYS_Statistics and SYS_Performance to our closed testing group. These provide website integration with ALIVEmod.com and performance monitoring with ASM. They are also a very important step to achieving global mission persistence, which all being well should follow soonâ„¢. We will keep you posted as always!

Special thanks to everyone here for supporting us with feedback and bug report and of course to our dedicated testing team (Savage CDN, Kremator, Sacha Lightert, Haze esp. tested this release very well).

We are really happy that you found all those bugs. (No, really we are!)

Stay tuned for more!

So awesome! Thank you!!!! Im really excited to try this new version out! I was wondering if the OPCOM format ("Faction") and the placement module format (Faction) have been standardized in this version or is it like the previous version?

also Im trying to get the AfricanConflict mod to work but Im a bit confused on the faction names, what name did you guys use/test? Im trying to get the African Rebels and Armed civilians to spawn. Im using OPF_mas_afr_F_o and Rebel_mas_afr_o but it just keeps spawning CSAT

Awesome! Going to have to make a Sangin ALIVE tonight with DiIrregulars! I saw that mas_afr_rebl_o is the list for rebels (thanks again!) but I had a few questions, is there a faction name to spawn only armed civilians and I notice that their vehicles aren't being spawned anywhere. Is there a way to get the motorized units to spawn with them?

Thanks again, you guys make Arma so much more awesome!

ALIVE sounds amazing, had a brief play with it but could some one point me in t he direction of some good single player missions, persistent campaigns/missions if possible.

Thank you for your hard work.
