Thanks @topden

Add your custom logo to the base flags:
 

+ Create a folder "flag" in the root directory of your misson file. Drop in your paa logo & call it logo.paa (jpg might work, PAA is the best).
+ open each template in Escape.Ruha\functions\Templates
+ search for flag & add this line after the flag is created: _object forceFlagTexture "flag\logo.paa";

+ Make sure you change the first word to _obj or _object (depending on what the flag is called).
 

example:
 

Spoiler

    _pos = [(_middlePos select 0) + 3.2, (_middlePos select 1) - 6.5, 0];
    //_object = "Flag_CSAT_F" createVehicle _pos;
    _object = createVehicle ["FlagPole_F", _pos, [], 0, "NONE"];
    _object setPos _pos;
    _object setDir 90;
    _object forceFlagTexture "flag\logo.paa";

 

or

Spoiler

_pos = [_center,_center vectorAdd [-0.351563,-4.73633,0],_rotation] call _fnc_rotatePos;
_obj = "Flag_Altis_F" createvehicle _pos;
_obj setVectorDirAndUp [[0.684954,-0.728586,0],[0,-0,1]];
_obj setdir ((getdir _obj) + _rotation);
_obj setPosATL _pos;
_obj forceFlagTexture "flag\logo.paa";

 

To create a flag .paa:
+ save your logo as a png 512x256px @ 72dpi.

+ open the png in Texture Viewer http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=14435
+ Save the file as logo.paa

I am currently having an issue with the mod. I played this a while ago with my friend and decided to play it again. Reinstalled Arma and our mods. CUP, Arma Enhanced Movement, RHS, and CBA. I host the server on my pc. I load in to the game just fine. But my friend always ends up spawning in the air and falls to his death instantly. He even got stuck under the map a few times. Anyone have any possible reasons why this shit keeps happening?

{-} Edit: Got it working by uninstaling the mods, reinstalling them on both my and my friends computer.

Did you copy the mission.sqm correctly, the part where players spawn in? Grab it here & compare the "groups" section to your own misson.sqm: http://escape.anzp.de/co10_Escape_1.9.7z

 

What map are you playing? Does it happen every time he spawns in or sometimes? Some maps (like the rocks on Malden or around the underground tunnels in Esseker) are glitchy as fook. The game tries to get ground level but the maps ground level config is a bit messed up. I am guessing you have a map problem nothing to do with escape.

Happens with Cherno, takistan, and Altis. I will defiantly give your suggestion with the Mission.sqm a go. Thanks for the help. I will edit this if it works.

Make sure your friend has the addon loaded correctly and that he has the same version of terrains (and core).

 

If the problem persists use a dedicated server (or start a server in the background with "-server") and the problem should be gone.

Also make sure you don't start Arma with -init commandline param. Some launchers add this automatically and it seems to break some eventhandlers ingame.

@NeoArmageddon Thanks for all the hard work you put into this mod, you have done a great job.

 

Thank you 😊

I noticed that you had world configs for Tembelan Island. Just wondering if there is a mission.sqm for it?

https://gitlab.anzp.de/escape/co10_Escape/blob/master/Islands/Tembelan/WorldConfig.sqf

 

We received config and mission.sqm as a donation but unfortunatly the sqm's were binarised and as such useless for us. I will give @scruffy a headsup about Tembelan.

WOW realy nice mod great work , can you make an version with IFA 3 ?  like you had done it with RHS ?  I had try to do an mission with the Init , Config´s ...  files from your Repository at GitLab but i doesn't work 😞 ( or i can´t do it right )

Hey @NeoArmageddon

Loving Escape, we cycle through 7 maps at the moment on our server.

I am testing out Diyala & everything works except for random town ai spawning in. I noticed that the VillageMarkers.sqf code was a bit different from other Escape 10 missions.

 

Diyala code: a3e_villageMarkers set [0, [[517.986,555.911,0], 205.146, "RECTANGLE", [14.6549,35.8956]]];
Other code: a3e_villageMarkers set [0, [[5704.45,8215.09,0], -98.5552, "RECTANGLE", [40,40]]];

The [14.6549,35.8956] is rounded off in other missions.  I tried to round it off to [80,80] but still no ai in towns.

Would it be better to if I did the positions again or do you think that I am looking in the wrong place?

The server log error:
 

Spoiler

_group createUnit [_infantryType, _spawnPos, []>
  Error position: <createUnit [_infantryType, _spawnPos, []>
  Error Type Number,Not a Number, expected Number
File functions\DRN\fn_AmbientInfantry.sqf [drn_fnc_AmbientInfantry], line 129
Error in expression < units _this select 0;




I would love to see the map port tutorial by scruffy, the first page link sends my back on a loop.
 

Tipps, Tricks and Tutorials

 

Port to another terrains by Scruffy



EDIT: my bad.....

 

I was using TADST to run the test server & it caused issues with ai spawning. Put the same files on the dedicated box & ai were everywhere 🙂

That confused me too, but if you scroll down the page to Scruffy's 3rd post it contains the porting information. Also the rounding up doesn't matter, just make sure you haven't deleted any of the needed comas, quotation marks etc when converting from the TE_villagemarkers mission. Sometimes when sending them to rpt the time code changes halfway through which goes unnoticed when copying the data into the villagemarkers.sqf and might get missed when fixing it in notepad, depending on how you do it.

 

 

Edit: After reading that back I was under the impression you were porting the mission to Diyala. Having seen it's already been ported, I booted it up and teleported around a few towns and the AI were spawning fine for me.

10 Internetpoints for the person locating the error with the AI spawn when mission is played with TADST and why only on DS everything runs as expected 😁😁😁

Wow @topden, these com centers look absolutely sick! Would love to see them in the mission. The weapon depots may also be a bit larger. Sometimes I miss the possibility for close quarter combat. Often it is very easy to eliminate all enemies from a long distance. However, I realize that this is a bigger challenge for the code to find larger flats on the map. 

 

The mortars are another subject. A mortar launcher and a few sandbags somewhere in the wilderness I find quite unrealistic. I once played around with the Map Builder, but unfortunately I am too unimaginative. 

 

For the motor pools I would know a small improvement possibility. They should contain such a small repair station (Land_RepairDepot_01_tan_F) where you can repair your vehicle completely. This would make absolute sense and give the motor pools additional gameplay functionality.

 

So, and to make not only demands, but also to contribute something small: My mates and I were a bit annoyed by other players (mostly strangers), who like to sit down in Ifrits or Marids and shoot everything until the rest of the troop has nothing more to do. That took some of the fun away from us. So we wrote a small script which minimizes the ammo of vehicles (but also turrets) as soon as a player occupies them. We are bloody beginners when it comes to Arma Scripting, but it works as intended. And I could imagine that it would be easy for @NeoArmageddon to embed it into the mission and perhaps give players the ability to set the amount of reduction per mission parameter.

The next thing I wanted to look at is to implement a functionality to punish players who shoot at the Evac helicopters or even kill the pilots to fly themselves. At least as a first step only punishment. However, it would be perfect if there was a non-violent possibility that players could fly the helicopters themselves. @NeoArmageddon: maybe you can give some tips on how to do this.

Yes, that is something that bugged me aswell for quite some time. In an early version we had all random artillery vehicles be available for artillery, but we found that in most cases those vehicles are too close to the player to actually shoot indirectly.

Can you please make tickets in the gitlab for all this points? That would help me not to forget about it and bring it in some order.

 

Also regarding the heli pilots I would say I add another ending where you escape in the helicopters but the mission is a fail for shooting your saviours 😄

Couldn't reproduce the TADST error, either from booting with it locally or on a standalone server box, both ran fine with AI in towns.

 

The heli issue is a pain in the butt, doesn't stop it from happening,  but adding a pilot script means everybody can point and sling abuse at the person that did it while they wait in the stationary heli for the mission to hopefully complete.

 

Would also like to see some stiffer penalty for killing civs.
