VCOM AI Driving Mod

Recommended Posts

VCOM_DRIVING


Hey guys, I made some driving improvements in my VCOM AI mod - however I thought (and others) that it would be nice to just have the AI driving enhancements without any other strings attached.


This mod simply executes an FSM on all AI and checks if they are drivers or not. If they are actively driving a vehicle they will check for objects/buildings that may get in their way while driving.
I could type a lot more. But I thought I'd let the video speak for the mod instead.

V1.03 CHANGES
- I believe I have fixed the error message people are getting on their screens when running this mod with CBA.

Hey all,
I do this all in my free time and, just like you, I don't get paid for ArmA 3 coding. If you feel like throwing a dollar at my wallet - I wouldn't argue.
Any money goes straight to paying college student bills for my wife and I. :P
Donation or not, I appreciate you taking the time to take a look at my creations. I am by far not the best creator of A3 content, so please donate to the ones you believe deserve your hard earned money.

It is, but this is that piece of code made into a standalone.

Very impressive :)
Nice one Genesis!!

Thank you :> It's really just a two-part gimmick. It's silly that it even works.

Yeah - I can upload a script version real fast.

Thanks again Foxhound! You're always amazin'.

Thanks for releasing this as a standalone!

Thanks for the support :rolleyes:

Hah yeah, I had a couple people wanting me to release this.

Seeing the AI driving-in the second half of the video-has brought tears on my eyes (after all those years of frustration)

Me too. Me too.

Currently it only works where units are local. This means that the mod will only impact units on the machine running it. If the clients have AI in their squad they will need to have the mod too.

I will be posting the script version as well. You can use that if you want all client to automatically run the scripts.

EDIT: Uploaded script verison

This mod has slightly opened up the doors a little more for Convoy missions. Back in my day, AI could follow a road and see obstacles... Wait a minute, nevermind. Though it does seem like A3 took it to another level of absolute stupidity. That video still makes me cringe. Admit it, we've all seen it in countless missions, the AI's superb, Stig-like driving, but we always block it out. Thanks Dom, thanks for giving us evidence of just how bad it is, without having to boot up our games.

More to the point, I look forward to helping you test more, and watching the default AI continue to outshine even the most ferocious of tactical drivers.

I don't get it, why is your GENIUS Script needed to accomplish where BI has clearly failed!

Should this not be standard?

Your video is frickin Proof of concept man!

Well Done!

oukej said that rubbish AI driving is due to them not seeing objects on the road as hazards! EPIC fail.

Good work genesis92x.
