Recommended Posts

I want to delete all objects on the map with a specific classname (At the start of the mission only), Land_City_8m_F and Land_City_8mD_F, whats the best way to do this?

init.sqf

{
if (_x typeOf "Land_City_8m_F" || _x typeOf "Land_City_8mD_F") then {
deleteVehicle _x;
};
} forEach nearestObjects [player, ["All"], 1000000];

If it's a default map object, I'm not sure there's an easy way to do that. You might consider remaking altis/stratis as a separate map at this point

Dread is correct, my code will only work if these objects were created in some way, I don't believe there is a way to delete default map objects.

That depends.

As far as buildings are concerned, you can delete them by destroying them then deleting their ruins.

I have the exact code you are looking for, but you have to do it for each building/already placed item.

So, if you're trying to clear out kavala, you should probably find something else.

I will post the code in ~1 min.

Here are the steps:

Put down an empty helipad above the house you plan on removing. In its init, place the following code:

 this enableSimulation false; this allowDamage false; delh = [0,0,0] nearestObject 99999; delh hideObject true; 

The number I put in (99999) is the building ID - you can find this by clicking the "ID" button at the top of the editor and zoom in all the way to see the ID's. Find the ID of the one you want to remove and place that ID into where my 99999 is.

hideobject does the trick

Only problem is when you hide the object, that certain object is still there. Meaning if you wanted to shoot an enemy on the other side of the 'house'. You would be hitting the house, not the enemy. Keep this in mind when you hide any objects. Also, a note I might add, if you are driving and all of a sudden hit a 'object'. That would be the object that you have hidden. 

 

I use the Hide Terrain Objects to remove trash and other crap at my home base that does not need to be there. 

 

Cheers!

Hidden objects should not cause obstacles. If they do, report it as a bug.

Good to know.

I just tested it and have found a few objects! Wonderful *Sarcasm*.

place an GameLogic and name it "MyGameLogic" and in its init field put this:

 

{_x hideObjectGlobal true } foreach (nearestTerrainObjects [myGameLogic,[],90000])

it will completly "delete"/hide every  object.

 

the last number is the radius in which the objects will be deleted

it is better to limit it to the server and switch the sorting off
 

if (isServer) then {{_x hideObjectGlobal true} forEach nearestTerrainObjects [[worldSize/2, worldSize/2], [], worldSize, false]}

I'm making a multiplayer mission on a jungle map with a lot of objects, but the players will be spending their time on only about a third of the map. Given that most map objects are simple objects, does anyone know if I would gain any performance improvement by hiding all terrain objects in the areas of the map that won't be used? Or is density of objects within viewDistance the actual area of concern when going for performance savings?

Be careful using the new editor module to hide hundreds or thousands of objects in an area if the mission has the ability to be "saved" (either through autosaves or manual player saves). I've noticed that trying to do a game save with tons of objects hidden by those modules cause the game to lock up and it spits out thousands of errors relating to the objects you have hidden.

 

To more directly answer your question (well, sort of), when I tried hiding about half of a map, I noticed only minor improvements (like 1-3fps on average maybe) but it was a fairly small map. On a larger map you may notice a bigger difference. Ultimately I couldn't implement it though because of the save game issues I discovered.

I'm implementing the idea on a dedicated server for a one-time, Zeus-based multiplayer mission involving a milsim group, so the save issue shouldn't be a concern. With 50 players and an equal number of AI units in thick jungle, things can get pretty bogged down during play, though, and other than shrinking view distance to the point where the helicopter pilots are being penalized, I'd love to find ways to improve performance.

Use TAW viewdistance script every player can adjust the view distance, you can decrease view and object under 500, in a dense jungle 300 m its enough and its pretty fast to adjust a higher or lower viewdistance.

Hide object can help for exemple on Altis if you hide tree and other static object in a town frame are better when you enter the town, but for exemple if you hide half of the map and the part of the map you play nothing is hide you will improve nothing on performance
