Quite a few of the ADF functions have been updated. Had some issues with the AI skill application so deactivated it. Besides that it is mostly optimization.

 

I was going to suggest to include the waypoint timeout param to your Ai waypoint functions since that is the only param missing.

 

setWaypointTimeout [10, 30, 60];

 

Example:

ADF_fnc_footPatrol.sqf

 

[group this, position this, 750, 5, "MOVE", "SAFE", "RED", "NORMAL", "WEDGE", 5, false] call ADF_fnc_footPatrol;

 

As you can see, it is missing the setWaypointTimeout values, which are very important if you want the patrol to simulate taking some "rests" between waypoints.

 

Specially useful if you want to create a window of opportunity for players to strike at Ai heavy assets during those "pauses".

 

Most if not all ADF functions dealing with waypoints are missing setWaypointTimeout.

All patrol functions call upon "core/fn_addWaypoint.sqf" (ADF_fnc_addWaypoint) to create the actual waypoint(s). Tbh I never had the need for waypoint timeouts in my missions hence why I haven't added the option. I might add it to the next ADF release.

Thank you! I believe adding such option could be really important to simulate several realistic conditions such as:

1) Asset refueling

2) Patrol resting, resupplies etc.

3) Pauses to simulate Radio communications

4) Pauses to simulate location/bearings checking

5) Temporary building garrison

 

Otherwise enemies both mechanized and on foot are just never resting walking machines and that looks unrealistic on most scenarios when those units are not engaged (In SAFE mode).

 

Also those small pauses create windows of opportunity that are the perfect chance for patient and tactical players who study enemy patrol patterns to strike at the best possible moment. 

 

For snipers to take that shot to kill the officer or for that Specialist to put that satchel charge under the patrolling (now stationary) tank.

 

Even AT soldiers have should wait for enemy heavy asset targets to come to a full stop not waste their precious and HEAVY rockets.

 

I've myself added the timeouts to an older version of your functions but with your constant updates I won't have those again if I want to benefit from your performance improvements.

 

Most of your functions immersion would greatly benefit from increased timeout settings for some waypoints, specially such functions as the fn_defendArea, fn_defendAreaPatrol and fn_footPatrol.

Same problem as an earlier user had.... I tried to start the mission and get thrown in the water from altitude. I see it might be  a JIP problem. To get rid of it and start the mission cleanly again, I try to use #restart command to launch the mission from scratch but it does nothing. Any clue ? Thanks

 Which mission is giving you issues? Can you share the RPT log?

I see no reason why #restart shouldn't work. Seems more like a server issue to me. But you can always try #missions and select the mission from there.

May I ask what was making the vehicle gunners invulnerable? I am also having that issue!

Still have no idea. Added a forced "allowDamage true" after each spawn which solves it.

On the vehicle, the units or all of them?

By any chance did you managed to include setWaypointTimeout into the patrol scripts?

 

PS: Just asking no pressure

I did. Timeouts are now part of the patrol functions.

You are the proof that some devs DO listen! 

 

Thank you!
