Sector Module Scripting

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I am a novice mission maker but have become quite competent using the editor. I now have started scripting but I am stuck with the Sector Module. I love using this module, and for the most part it is easy to use through the editor, but for the life of me I cannot find anything about how to place this module through using a script. Could someone please help or direct me in the correct direction, thanks.

That's a bit complicated I believe, because you will need to create a logic vehicle, then attach all the necessary variables associated with the module, then alter/set those variables to your liking, a bit more trouble than it's worth IMO.

Thanks for the answer Shock. I didnt think it would be easy. The reason I want to add this is I want to create a gamemode where you can create as many Sectors as you want. Would you maybe humor me for a bit. Below I added BIS_fnc_moduleSector, which just gave me a headache. How would I go about now attaching the variables to the logic vehicle (also would "_unit createUnit ["LOGIC", [0, 0, 0], [], 0, "NONE"];" be the right way to create this logic). Any help would be appreciated.

Description:
Initialize a sector module. Can be also used to get sector parameters.

--- Get all sectors ---
Parameter(s):
	0: BOOL

Returns:
ARRAY of OBJECTs

--- Get number of sectors held by a side ---
Parameter(s):
	0: SIDE

Returns:
NUMBER - number of sectors owned by the side

--- Set sector owner ---
Parameter(s):
	0: OBJECT - sector module
	1: SIDE

Returns:
BOOL

--- Initialize ---
Parameter(s):
	0: OBJECT - sector module

Returns:
NOTHING

I use the same way as you would place it down in the editor (but just with the commands).

- Place the module - in this case, we just create a game logic

- Place the game logics for the module - exactly the same as in the edito

- Place the trigger for the "Area" game logic

- Synchronize the objects to one another

- Set the module parameters - exactly the same as in the editor.

- Call the module function and pass the created game logic as a parameter - this is the step that is completed when the mission is loaded

// Gets position
_pos = [_this,0,[],[[],objNull,""],3] call BIS_fnc_param; // Can be passed array, object or marker
_pos = _pos call BIS_fnc_position;

_logic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["Logic",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

// Creates area & side logics and trigger
_areaLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["LocationArea_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];
_sideBLUFORLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["SideBLUFOR_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];
_sideOPFORLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["SideOPFOR_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];
_sideINDFORLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["SideResistance_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

_trigger = createTrigger ["EmptyDetector",_pos];
_trigger setTriggerArea [500,500,false];

// Synchronizes the objects
_areaLogic synchronizeObjectsAdd [_trigger];
_logic synchronizeObjectsAdd [_areaLogic,_sideBLUFORLogic,_sideOPFORLogic,_sideINDFORLogic];

_logic setVariable ["CostAir","2",true];
_logic setVariable ["CostInfantry","1",true];
_logic setVariable ["CostPlayers","2",true];
_logic setVariable ["CostTracked","4",true];
_logic setVariable ["CostWater","0",true];
_logic setVariable ["CostWheeled","2",true];
_logic setVariable ["DefaultOwner",1,true];
_logic setVariable ["Designation","A",true];
_logic setVariable ["Name","Alpha",true];
_logic setVariable ["OnOwnerChange","",true];
_logic setVariable ["OwnerLimit","0",true];
_logic setVariable ["ScoreReward","0",true];
_logic setVariable ["TaskDescription","Capture Alpha by eliminating the enemies",true];
_logic setVariable ["TaskOwner",3,true];
_logic setVariable ["TaskTitle","Capture Alpha",true];

[_logic] call BIS_fnc_moduleSector;

Produces a few scripting errors, but it works :P

Those are the vehicle class names for the logics used to initialize the module. If you go into the editor and double click on the map to place a unit, in the top-right hand corner of the option box there is a name. When you select a unit this name changes to the vehicle class name that is currently selected.

Spawn the logic as a ModuleSector_F instead - you then also do not need to call the module function (you would think this would maybe miss a few variables due to timing but from a few test seems ok).

You are also missing the angle from your createTrigger command.

This should all be done server side. There is no need to publicVaraible the variables, the module takes care of doing this for you.

As a minimum you dont even need the other modules (location,sides) and the module will create its own trigger if none is found. The trigger can also be updated once the module is initialized. e.g

//Exit if we are not the server
if !( isServer ) exitWith {};

_pos = [_this,0,[],[[],objNull,""],3] call BIS_fnc_param;
_pos = _pos call BIS_fnc_position;

//Create the sector logic
_logic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["ModuleSector_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

//Default setting,  which are optional
_logic setVariable ["CostAir","2"];
_logic setVariable ["CostInfantry","1"];
_logic setVariable ["CostPlayers","2"];
_logic setVariable ["CostTracked","4"];
_logic setVariable ["CostWater","0"];
_logic setVariable ["CostWheeled","2"];
_logic setVariable ["DefaultOwner","-1"];
_logic setVariable ["Designation","A"];
_logic setVariable ["Name","Alpha"];
_logic setVariable ["OnOwnerChange",""];
_logic setVariable ["OwnerLimit","0"];
_logic setVariable ["ScoreReward","0"];
_logic setVariable ["TaskDescription","Capture Alpha by eliminating the enemies"];
_logic setVariable ["TaskOwner","3"];
_logic setVariable ["TaskTitle","Capture Alpha"];

//Set the sides for the sector
_logic setVariable ["sides",[ east, west ]];

//Wait until sector is initialised
waitUntil {
!isNil { _logic getVariable [ "finalized", nil ] } &&
{ !( _logic getVariable [ "finalized", true ] ) }
};

//A size for the trigger
_trgSize = 500;
//Set the trigger size on the sector
_logic setVariable [ "size", _trgSize ];
//Make the module update its trigger
[ _logic, [], true, "area" ] call BIS_fnc_moduleSector;

//Unfortunately the sector has not been written to also update its marker so..
//Get the modules trigger
_trg = ( _logic getVariable "areas" ) select 0;
//Get the triggers marker
_mrk = ( _trg getVariable "markers" ) select 0;
//Update the markers size
_mrk setMarkerSize [ _trgSize, _trgSize ];

Hi Guys

Thank you everyone who help me resolve this. Larrow & Bull_A this works perfectly. Thanks for solving one of the mysteries of ARMA 3 scripting for me ;)

I am trying to use this code in my mission and I cannot get the sector to spawn at all. How do I set a position for this sector?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Here is the code I am trying to use.

// Gets position

_pos = _pos call BIS_fnc_position;

_logic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["Logic",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

// Creates area & side logics and trigger

_areaLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["LocationArea_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

_sideBLUFORLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["SideBLUFOR_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

_sideOPFORLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["SideOPFOR_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

_sideINDFORLogic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["SideResistance_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];

_trigger = createTrigger ["EmptyDetector",_pos];

_trigger setTriggerArea [500,500,false];

// Synchronizes the objects

_areaLogic synchronizeObjectsAdd [_trigger];

_logic synchronizeObjectsAdd [_areaLogic,_sideBLUFORLogic,_sideOPFORLogic,_sideINDFORLogic];

_logic setVariable ["CostAir","2",true];

_logic setVariable ["CostInfantry","1",true];

Hi Jakeplissken

Try using Larrows' script rather than Bull_As' one. It is an evolution of Bull_A script. I will also post my refined one tonight when I am back home.

Hi Jakeplissken

So here is my refined script, the one I use in my missions:

As you can see it is almost exactly the same as Larrows' script with a few changes to allow full control of the settings.

If you are going to use it in public missions etc please just acknowledge Larrow and Bull_A.

Hi,

 

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I don't think the above script seems to work anymore, or I can't get it to work with a simple null = ["mymarker"] execVM "sectorModule.sqf"; in the init line of a unit. I am interested in this working to laydown script defined sectors. The sector doesn't seem to show on the map in single or multiplayer (Eden editor).

 

I hope I find people well.

It seems to be getting stuck waiting for the sector to be initialized.

//Wait until sector is initialised 
waitUntil {
    systemChat format["Here %1", time];
    !isNil { _logic getVariable [ "finalized", nil ] } && { !( _logic getVariable [ "finalized", true ] ) }
};

I'm still trying to track down the problem..

Ah, it seems there is a

[_logic] call BIS_fnc_moduleSector;

missing just before

//Wait until sector is initialised  waitUntil {

waitUntil {

    systemChat format["Here %1", time];

 !isNil { _logic getVariable [ "finalized", nil ] } &&

    { !( _logic getVariable [ "finalized", true ] ) }

};

I don't think the script actually calls the code in the module and therefore doesn't get initialised...

 

There is another issue I've just found...

Ok, I think this works now. Calling the module code initializes the module. Also, despite the module creating it's own area and trigger if you add the SpawnAIsectorTactic module it doesn't pick up on this area and fails on FindClosestsector.sqf. Therefore if you add an area to the Sector it will be fine.

 

updated code:

 
//===================================================================================================================

HI All,

 

I am using Larrow's script from above and I can't figure out why the on-screen designation shows a "S" when I have designated it as "1"? What am I missing here?

 

_logic setVariable ["Designation","1"];
_logic setVariable ["Name","SECTOR 1"];

Did you call the script in the format

 null = [sectorMrk,sectorSize,side1,side2,defaultOwner,costAir,costInfantry,costPlayers,
		costTracked,costWater,costWheeled,designation,name,onOwnerChange,ownerLimit,
		scoreReward,taskDescription,taskOwner,taskTitle] execVM "sectorModule.sqf";

?

HI atmo,

 

I tried using the format above and Larrow's script but it does not make a difference. The on-screen designation still shows an "S" when I have designated it as "1"

 

What is strange is that in the EDITOR it works despite the hint message saying it requires a "letter" in the Designation field.

Hmm. I am not quite sure what the problem is. I haven't looked at this for a while. Sorry. Let us know if you make any advances in sorting it out.

Hi Atmo,

 

Quoted you just to grab attention as your script has been the most clearly explained and user friendly to a non-script pro like me.  I am hoping you can help me solve why i cannot get it working, if you need more information to diagnose than wht i have posted below please let me know:

My Aim and Intention for this script:

I am trying to create a Sector Control TvT Mission.  Where Sectors per side only appear once the previous sector has been taken - so linear.  I will achieve this by spawning a line of sectors with Tasks Owners BLUFOR only starting from their HQ and OVERLAPPING these will be a line of sectors with Tasks Owners OPFOR.  I am also looking at purely scripted sectors (script and markers) but there are complications around for Bleed Ticket Systems that as well as it is visually less tidy than the modules.

HI All,

 

I am using Larrow's script from above and I can't figure out why the on-screen designation shows a "S" when I have designated it as "1"? What am I missing here?

 

_logic setVariable ["Designation","1"];
_logic setVariable ["Name","SECTOR 1"];

 

HI All, 

 

I set the following, so that all the sectors would be displayed on screen in a MP game by initializing with:

_logic remoteExecCall ["BIS_fnc_moduleSector", 0, FALSE];

 

createSector.sqf

//Exit if we are not the server
if !( isServer ) exitWith {};

params ["_pos",["_baseName","",[""]],["_side","",[EAST,""]]];
_pos = [_this,0,[],[[],objNull,""],3] call BIS_fnc_param;
_pos = _pos call BIS_fnc_position;


//Create the sector logic
_logic = (createGroup sideLogic) createUnit ["ModuleSector_F",_pos,[],0,"NONE"];	//ModuleSectorDummy_F	ModuleSector_F
_logic remoteExecCall ["BIS_fnc_moduleSector", 0, FALSE];

//Default setting,  which are optional
//_designation = "";
//if ((_baseName find "CONTROL POINT") >= 0) then {_designation = _baseName select [14,1]};
//_logic setVariable ["Designation",_designation, TRUE];	// ADD Sector Numbers only works when remoteExecCall on initializing, TESTING
_logic setVariable ["Designation","", TRUE];
_logic setVariable ["Name",_baseName, TRUE];

And noticed that the "Designation" variable now works! 

 

How ever I get the following error, yet it still works, how can I clear this error?

waituntil {|#|!isnil {_logic getvariable "finalized"}}>
Error position: <!isnil {_logic getvariable "finalized"}}>
Error Generic error in expression

There is never ever any need to call the modules function for initialisation. It already does this by itself when the module is spawned via entries in its config.

There is never any need to remoteExec anything to clients as the module should only ever be created on the server and the module already takes care of handling clients and JIP for you.

 

The reason some of you maybe seeing problems is likely a timing issue between the module being spawned and the object variables being set.

Here is an updated version using TYPE createUnit ARRAY which allows for setting the variables in the object init. If the function is called anywhere but the server then it will remoteExec it to the server. I have also included a CfgRemoteExec section to make sure it can never be remoteExec'ed anywhere other than to the server.

See functions header of possible parameters LARs\spawnSector\functions\fn_spawnSector.sqf

    Description: Spawn a module sector
******
    0: _pos (Array, Object, Marker, Group, Location) - Position to spawn sector at

    //Anything from here on are optional parameters

    1: _name (String) - Name of sector as shown on map
    2: _designation (String) - Designation shown on both map and in sectors ui
    3: _sectorArea (Array, Object "Trigger" or "LocationArea_F") - Sectors trigger area in [ radius X, radius Y, direction, isRectangle ] see setTriggerArea OR an existing trigger or locationArea_F( with trigger attached, same as a default setup in the editor )
    4: _sides (Array) - Array of sides that can capture the sector, if [] used sides will be [east,west,resistance,civilian], if nil defaults to [east,west], not available through editor attributes and is usually defined by syncing side logics to the sector module
    5: _defaultOwner (Number, Side) - Initial owner of the sector when created, for no owner use either sideUnknown or -1
    6: _onOwnerChange (String) - Code as STRING that runs when a sector is captured, code is passed [ _sector, _owner, _oldOwner ] in _this, code is also run at sector initialisation _owner will be default owner and _oldOwner will be sideUnknown

    //Score award
    7: _scoreReward (Number) - Score given to side for capturing sector

    //Tasks and rewards
    8: _taskOwner (Number) - 0 = no task, 1 = everyone, 2 = default owner, 3 = all but default owner
    9: _taskTitle (String) - Task title, use %1 to insert sector name
    10: _taskDescription (String) - Task Description, use %1 to inser sector name, %2 to insert sector rewards ( vehicles and respawn positions, these will need to be created seperately and synced with a existing trigger that is passed in param 3 ), %3 for capture costs description

    //Capture limits and coef cost, these are the same as the attributes that can be seen when viewing a sectors attributes in the editor
    11: _ownerLimit (Number) - Range <0-1> that a side must be dominent to cpature sector
    12: _costInfantry (Number) - Ratio of how fast Infantry will capture area
    13: _costWheeled (Number) - Ratio of how fast Wheeled vehicles will capture area
    14: _costTracked (Number) - Ratio of how fast Tracked vehicles will capture area
    15: _costWater (Number) - Ratio of how fast Naval vehicles will capture area
    16: _costAir (Number) - Ratio of how fast Air vehicles will capture area
    17: _costPlayers (Number) - Ratio of how fast Players will capture area

    //Values not available through editor attributes
    18: _captureCoef (Number) - ?Some Time based coef added to scores

The example mission comes with several examples in the initPlayerLocal.sqf of which some use some utility functions in initServer.sqf to spawn triggers/locationArea_F.

Tested SP, MP hosted/dedicated and JIP. Should be good but have not put through extensive testing other than the examples available in the demo mission provided.
