ACC EqKreator v10.2 - Making equipment scripts was never so easy

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm proud to release public version of my equipment script creator - ACC EqKreator v10.2! Now ACE3 compatible!


 

Q&A:



Q: Why you created your own equipment script creator and why it is called EqKreator?
A: I have got annoyed by other software/scripts functionality where you was forced to use some kind of program (LEA) or search for many items classnames and write them inside already created scripts (F3). I am not saying that these things are bad, I just wanted to create something that would suit my needs. And that is full JIP compatibility - COOP oriented - Lightweight - Easy to use script.
It is called EqKreator because it creates ready to use equipment scripts for you!  ;)

Q: Is it based on some other mission? It looks similar to VTS by L etranger?
A: Yes it is edited version of VTS v4.0 by L etranger. I have just deleted all playable slots and left GM one, and added my equipment generator script into it, also, I have added Virtual Arsenal into it.

Q: Why just don't use Virtual Ammobox or add Virtual Arsenal to my mission?
A: Well... you can do that, but in our community we sometimes play missions that last over 4 hours and we don't want to waste time so everyone get's equipped from scratch from VAmmobox or VArsenal or other kind of Virtual something. Also, I am mission maker and I just hate that way of assigning gear. It is me that decides what player will get. Not that player  :P. That is also why EK was created.

Q: There are many other scripts like this one, why should I use yours?
A: Let me write down some pros of this script:

  • It gives gear to each unit before briefing screen
  • It is JIP friendly, you will not see this script adding gear again like other equipment scripts sometimes do
  • You can create many equipment scripts very fast and even save them inside VArsenal or VTS Shop for further usage/editing
  • You can see how much your unit weigh with all gear you added (using AGM or CSE)
  • You can see unit, all gear on it and even test it  :)
  • You can assign gear to selected equipment slot (backpack, vest, fatigues)
  • Did I mentioned that it's blazing fast and easy to use?
  • Compatible with ACRE2/TFAR/Vanilla (in terms of removing radio IDs - everyone will get unique radio ID)
  • Creates equipment script for vehicles too

 

Instructions:

 

You may also want to look at my ACC DAC_Toolbox script if you use DAC v3 and are a mission maker!  ;)

Would be great to have some sort of video uploaded to show this functionality. On paper it looks much more complicated than just doing the old fashioned way..

Hi.

A much needed script.

However, there are some defects with backpacks on JIP.

1) Its not giving the right backpack.

2) The backpacks are empty.

first of all, great mod.

i have a problem though. In multiplayer when i respawn i start out with the gear my unit had before the script, and so does his entire squad.

Am i missing something or is respawn not supported in the script?

best regards.

@Baagoe please send me your case.sqf and I will look into it.

@Spitze-dk respawn is not supported and will never be, cause we don't play missions with respawns. You could add eventhandler to unit to make it run script again tho.

Thanks for the reply.

New problem though, when i launch the game with your script on my dedicated server, all the units spawn with their standard weapons (both pistol and rifle) the rest of the equipment works fine.

The weapons are present, i can find them in my ammocrates, just not on the unit.

Are you using vanilla or modded units? Try using vanilla ones, doesn't really matter which one you use but some has gear randomization scripts on them.

The units now spawn with no gear at all when loading my mission in editor. I made another mission prior to the update which spawns the gear fine.
