Author: DreadPirate

Short Description: This script takes editor-based groups and respawns them when the group is eliminated   Description:   The group's waypoints are saved The group's loadouts are saved Multiple respawn positions are available Spawning can be synchronized with a trigger to create groups when needed The number of respawns can be set, or it can respawn infinitely The respawn delay can be a fixed number or a range A pause radius is available so groups don't spawn on top of their enemies An exit trigger can be used to exit the script early Integrated GAIA support (https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/172933-mission-template-stand-alone-gaia-make-missions-fast-by-using-mcc-gaia-engine/) A custom init string can be used to run your favourite patrol script, attack script, gear script, etc. Units are added to Zeus automatically Use it for ambient combat, waves of attackers, random patrols or whatever else you think of.....   Installation / Usage: Copy the jebus folder into your mission folder Copy description.ext into your mission folder (or merge description.ext with yours) Place a group in the editor Call the script in the initialization box of the leader or group (examples given below) Option: Synchronize a trigger with the group leader. The group will not spawn until the trigger is activated   Installing to a sub-folder: Copy the jebus folder into your mission sub-folder (eg scripts) Copy description.ext into your mission folder (or merge description.ext with yours) Edit description.ext to point to sub-folder (eg #include "scripts\jebus\cfgFunctions.hpp") Proceed as normal   Parameters: this = Leader of a group "LIVES=" - Number of times group should respawn.
