"X-Cam" and "DAC" Project

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was a very long time absent, but not inactive. Unfortunately, I am very busy with other "non ARMA" projects.

Sometimes, however, I have some free time to occupy myself with Arma3.

Since many people have asked me if I will convert the DAC for Arma 3, I've recently started working on it.

But Due to time constraints I can only carry out a conversion, so that all scripts run without any errors.

Since the bug fixing is very troublesome in the dynamic of the DAC, I started in the first step with a tool

that enables me to better observe the processes of DAC and the behavior of the AI.

This tool with the name "X-Cam" (Some people know this tool certainly from OFP times) will do the job.

This is not a mission editor, and it's not a tool like the "3DE" was.

I may see some similarities to the new "Zeus" tool, but that is really not intentional,

because the first idea and the first concepts I developed a long time ago.

I think the X-Cam is a mix of all the tools, because it contains something of all things.

I can not say exactly what features will be included in the first release,

as I'm still experimenting a lot and try out the possibilities.

Please do not expect too much, because my script skills are not the best, especially in case of mp scripting :-/

But what I already can say is that certain settings can be stored/loaded by the "iniDB" functions.

I hope that it will also be possible to save/load object constellations like "prefabs", for example

or maybe unit und vehicle data incl. waypoint settings into a script format.

What I also can say already is, that you can add user-defined functions to the X-Cam,

and thus can be very easily adapted to your needs.The integrate of own functions works similar to the DAC Config files.

Ok, because pictures say more than words, you will find below a few recent pictures that show the current state of development.

If interested, I could upload a video, which perhaps gives you a better insight.

Please understand that I can not give you any information on a release date, because my free time is very limited. Sorry.

Greetings from Germany :cool:

Oh yes. I know you said this isn't a mission editor, but it looks like a great UI and I'd love to use it to put some objects down.

Good to see some news on this.

X-Cam really looks promising.

Will there be a script version for DAC like in arma2?

Cheers and keep up the good work!

Great to see you back.

Very nice Interface there as usual.

Would be nice to see some functions for camera/movie editing purposes, like creating visual tracking shots ect.

Gruss

Bloody hell that IS impressive.

For reference I spotted you are spelling "Damage" as "Dammage" - should have one M..

Really interested to see this one develop !
