BD&D - Bens Drag & Drop v0.3

-Feature: A Script, that allows players to drag around objects, statics and crates, that are defined in an array of objects. (Supported classnames below)

Hi all

I got the idea to make this little - far from perfect - script, as we are playing with the well-made logistics script -IgiLoad- from Igi_PL. Sometimes we wished to adjust the loadable cargo by hand. The script itself is called from the init.sqf in the mission folder and not from an objects init. So the mission maker doesn't have to name or init any draggable object. It is tested on the dedicated server of the 14.Jägerkompanie.

I see it as a little help, handling the cargo of logistics scripts or mods.

Its about time to share it i guess.

Supported Classnames (so far):

"Box_IND_Ammo_F","Land_MetalBarrel_F","Land_WaterTank_F","Land_WaterBarrel_F","BWA3_Box_Gear","WL_GER_Back_Box_Flecktarn","TF_NATO_Radio_Crate","B_supplyCrate_F","IG_supplyCrate_F","O_supplyCrate_F","I_supplyCrate_F","B_Mortar_01_F","B_HMG_01_F","B_HMG_01_high_F","B_HMG_01_A_F","B_GMG_01_F","B_GMG_01_high_F","B_GMG_01_A_F","B_static_AA_F","B_static_AT_F","B_G_Mortar_01_F","O_Mortar_01_F","O_HMG_01_F","O_HMG_01_high_F","O_HMG_01_A_F","O_GMG_01_F","O_GMG_01_high_F","O_GMG_01_A_F","O_static_AA_F","O_static_AT_F","O_G_Mortar_01_F","I_G_Mortar_01_F","I_Mortar_01_F","I_GMG_01_A_F","I_static_AT_F","I_static_AA_F","I_HMG_01_A_F","I_HMG_01_high_F","I_HMG_01_F","Land_BarrelEmpty_F", "Land_BarrelSand_F", "Land_BarrelTrash_F", "Land_BarrelWater_F", "Land_MetalBarrel_F","Box_NATO_Wps_F", "Box_East_Wps_F", "Box_IND_Wps_F", "Box_East_WpsLaunch_F", "Box_NATO_WpsLaunch_F", "Box_IND_WpsLaunch_F", "Box_IND_WpsSpecial_F","Box_East_WpsSpecial_F","Box_NATO_WpsSpecial_F","BWA3_Box_Gear","WL_GER_Back_Box_Flecktarn","TF_NATO_Radio_Crate","BWA3_Box_Weapons","BWA3_Box_Attachments","BWA3_Box_Ammo","Box_NATO_AmmoOrd_F", "Box_East_AmmoOrd_F", "Box_IND_AmmoOrd_F", "Box_NATO_Grenades_F", "Box_East_Grenades_F", "Box_IND_Grenades_F", "Box_NATO_Ammo_F", "Box_East_Ammo_F", "Box_IND_Ammo_F", "Box_IND_Support_F", "Box_East_Support_F", "Box_NATO_Support_F","Land_CargoBox_V1_F","x39_medicBox","Land_Pallet_MilBoxes_F","Land_PaperBox_closed_F","Land_PaperBox_open_empty_F","Land_PaperBox_open_full_F","Box_NATO_AmmoVeh_F","Box_East_AmmoVeh_F","Box_Ind_AmmoVeh_F","Land_MetalBarrel_empty_F","MetalBarrel_burning_F","Land_BarrelSand_grey_F","Land_BarrelWater_grey_F","Land_BarrelWater_F","Land_BarrelTrash_grey_F","Land_BarrelTrash_F"

To make an object not draggable, add this line to the objects init:

this setvariable ["nodrag",false,true];

Changelog & fixes:

v0.3

-Included a line you can add to an objects init-line. (Exclude objects from dragging). - Thanks to F2k Sel

-While dragging the "X"-Key gets disabled to prevent animation glitches. - Thanks to F2k Sel

-I got a report, that the script disabled the addaction-menu at MCC Sandbox. This got also fixed by another way of removing the specific addaction.

v0.2

-Every Player can Drag simultaneously now.

Future plans to figure out:

Seperation between carrying light things and dragging heavier things.

Issues so far:

//

Only known issue at usage with IgiLoad - Script:

Drop your draggables before loading cargo into vehicles. Otherwise this happens to you:

3lockad3

I was able to load the box in the vehicle by hand, and it got loaded into the vehicle,, buuut I got stuck in an animation till I dropped the item, and when I did that the truck blew up killing me. That is try number 1.

Feedback and hints/tips for improvement is highly appreciated!

Oh nice, I was thinking about something similar.

I guess we could also check the size/boundingbox to determine if an object is draggable or not. Not sure how well that would work.

Other then dragging things around what is the point to this script ?

Can I load boxes into victors ? Or is that end goal ?

Im sorry if this was not clearly stated through the description.

The only goal was to ease up the cargo-handling to play nicely together with the logistics script from IgiPL. Because at his script - which is incredibly well done - there is no drag option. =)

Ah very good, was trying this also but have no time for updating my Drag&Drop Script. Nice work !

Cool Script Cigar0 - you inspired me to future plans =)

Now i try to seperate dragging items from carrying items.

This is just what we need. And this could potentially be a great logistics script (I included some stuff to your Greifer.sqf that I'll put in spoilers below). However...

  • Would it be possible to add a string to an object I placed in editor that I dont want to be able to be dragged?
  • I added the Hesco barriers, razor wire and sandbags to this scipt and they worked when they're placed on the editor. But if you have a script that spawns them in after the mission begins (via an addaction on an object) they aren't recognized. Also, when Zeus places them they aren't recognized.
  • When loading the following scripting error comes up: '((_target distance _this)<2|#|' Error Missing ).
  • Lastly, what does the attach = false in the init.sqf do exactly for your script?

"Land_HBarrierBig_F",

"Land_HBarrier_3_F",

"Land_HBarrier_5_F",

"Land_HBarrier_1_F",

"Land_HBarrierWall_corridor_F",

"Land_HBarrierWall_corner_F",

"Land_HBarrierWall6_F",

"Land_HBarrierWall4_F",

"Land_HBarrierTower_F",

"Land_Razorwire_F",

"Land_BagFence_Long_F",

"Land_BagFence_Short_F",

"Land_BagFence_Round_F",

"Land_BagFence_End_F",

"Land_BagFence_Corner_F"

Okay, so don't place them in by hand just drop them then add action. Nice scripts together!

This is a permanent add to my template! both scripts creators will be in my credit line,, if that is good with you.

if you don't want an object to move you could place this in the init line of the object

this setvariable ["nodrag",false,true];

and then change this line in Greifer.sqf

{_x  addAction ["<t color=""#FFAD1F"" size='2.5' shadow='2'>" +"Drag", "BDD\ziehen.sqf", "", 1,true, true, "", "!attached and player distance _target<2"];} foreach gueter;

change to

{_x  addAction ["<t color=""#FFAD1F"" size='2.5' shadow='2'>" +"Drag", "BDD\ziehen.sqf", "", 1,true, true, "", "!attached and player distance _target<2 and (_target getvariable ['nodrag',true])"];} foreach gueter;

Thanks for your Feedback. As this is my first "releasable" script i am new to scripting. I'll try to get some more stuff into it like carrying small items and so forth.

Would it be possible to add a string to an object I placed in editor that I dont want to be able to be dragged?

------The Post above would be the solution for this. @F2k Sel, do you mind, if i would include it into the Script?

I added the Hesco barriers, razor wire and sandbags to this scipt and they worked when they're placed on the editor. But if you have a script that spawns them in after the mission begins (via an addaction on an object) they aren't recognized. Also, when Zeus places them they aren't recognized.

-----Maybe the solution to this would be looping the greifer.sqf (its the grabberscript, which puts the addaction to all the objects in the array). This is because the greifer/grabber.sqf puts an addaction to the draggables at init.sqf at mission launch.

Lastly, what does the attach = false in the init.sqf do exactly for your script?

------The attach = false is the local variable that the script passes to every client. Because it is not a public variable, every player can drag and drop at the same time. When attached = true your drag - addaction gets removed and you can select the drop - addaction

---------- Post added at 14:54 ---------- Previous post was at 14:53 ----------

This is a permanent add to my template! both scripts creators will be in my credit line,, if that is good with you.

Thank you, and sure this is fine by me.

No problem anyone can use anything I post.

Have you thought about having the two actions drag/drop on the player and then when the cursor detects an object of that type in the array the action to drag appears.

I used it on a similar script some time ago.

I heard something otherwise. If you addaction to a player it seems like its eating more performance than addaction on an object. Somebody wrote in his blog about. Think it was killzone kid.

And the array had to be checked every 0.5 secs?

Yea there's no easy way to check timings in Arma, even if placed on an object they must still perform some check to see if they've been detected or player is near.

I just ran a few tests but couldn't detect any real difference, results vary too much on each run but the larger the array the greater time it may take.

I have noticed one issue, when dragging an object if you press X key followed by S key strange actions happen, you may have to disable some key presses to solve this.

I have noticed one issue, when dragging an object if you press X key followed by S key strange actions happen, you may have to disable some key presses to solve this.

I read about the Problem, that if you put Hotkeys into Addactions, strange errors occur.

For example:

disableSerialization;

(findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown","if ((_this select 1) == 42) then {hint 'drop'; [] execvm 'do something'};false"];

If you have this in your scriptfolder, which checks, if a certain key is pressed, you cannot use ACRE or TFAR again, because it messes with your keyboard-input.

I am not very much into that type of problem, but i am always open for a kind advise =)

if you don't want an object to move you could place this in the init line of the object

this setvariable ["nodrag",false,true];

and then change this line in Greifer.sqf

{_x  addAction ["<t color=""#FFAD1F"" size='2.5' shadow='2'>" +"Drag", "BDD\ziehen.sqf", "", 1,true, true, "", "!attached and player distance _target<2"];} foreach gueter;

change to

{_x  addAction ["<t color=""#FFAD1F"" size='2.5' shadow='2'>" +"Drag", "BDD\ziehen.sqf", "", 1,true, true, "", "!attached and player distance _target<2 and (_target getvariable ['nodrag',true])"];} foreach gueter;

Thanx, that works very well.

I really can't say about ACRE or TFAR I don't use them.

I did try testing for an animation change, that worked but there seems to be no way of cancelling the new animation.

The only option is to disable the keypress so the action never starts.

These are the two modified files.

Ziehen

disableserialization; 
_Last = _this select 0;
_spieler = _this select 1;
_act = _this select 2;

_block_key = (findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown","if ((_this select 1) == 45) then {true} else {false}"];// disable key X 

player setvariable ["drop",[_Last,_spieler,_act,_block_key],true];// add the EVH name so it can be removed later

_spieler removeAction _act;
_spieler playMove "acinpknlmstpsraswrfldnon";//Für die DragGrab-Animation
sleep 2;

//_Last attachTo [_spieler,[0,1.6,0.15]];
_Last attachTo [_spieler, [0,0.75,0.01],"lefthand"];
//_Last setdir 90;

attached = true;

_actionId = _spieler addAction ["<t color=""#FFAD1F"" size='2.5' shadow='2'>" +"Drop", "BDD\loslassen.sqf", [], 99, true, true, "", "(attached && (_target == _this))"];

_spieler setvariable ["getragenes",_Last];
_spieler addMPEventHandler ["MPkilled", {detach ( _this select 0) getvariable "getragenes",attached=false}]; 

loslassen

_temp = player getvariable "drop";
_Last =  _temp select 0;
_spieler = _temp select 1;
_act = _temp select 2;

_spieler removeAction _act;
_spieler removeMPEventHandler ["killed",0]; 
//hint format ["%1",_temp];

detach _Last;
_Last setpos [(getpos _Last) select 0 , (getpos _Last) select 1 , 0.01];
_spieler playmove "acinpknlmwlksraswrfldb";
_spieler switchMove "";

attached = false;

_block_key = player getvariable "drop";// get EVH name
(finddisplay 46) displayremoveeventhandler ["KeyDown",_block_key select 3]; // Remove EVH

removeAllActions _spieler;

i try this atm. If it works with the key disable EVH. Thanks for your thoughts about it =)

Tested with 4 guys in dedicated environment. Ill add it to the script.

I was also contacted via steam, that the script kills addactions from the player. This is fixed also. Im updating the download atm.

Thanks for the update! I have been testing this with another script that adds actions and I have noticed this script removes those actions so that could be a possible issue, perhaps because of using removeAllActions.
