@ArteyFlow It's a very easy thing to do, and testament to the vast array of awesome content out there. I go very light on the arrays and haven't run into any difficulties in the past, recently only using a mixture of Ravage gear and my GM uniforms. 

 

Loving the update, being able to only spawn trader groups is cool for those peaceful hunting trips. A solitary nomadic trader would be a nice option to have...

Contact soundtrack music is very nice indeed, really lends itself to Ravage.....so good I haven't even tried the new custom music array yet.

Sorry George ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.......I did say It's tpw's script,  It's an edited version of his latest animal script.

Hello guys!

 

Some quick news on Patreon updates :

The next upload will happen soon, and will be quite similar to the latest Myst Demo, as it will provide modules for mission making and dynamic spawn systems. But this time we won't be spawning zombies or phantoms, this new project (yet to be named) is designed to populate terrains with alien entities from the Contact DLC, with working & dynamic behaviours.

Missions à la "Captive State" with alien/human alliances or "War of the Worlds" style scenarios should be sweet and easy to make with that little toy. 😉 

Although they aren't easy to use as they are, BIS did a damn good job with the alien entities; the new mod will make them much more accessible with several customisation options.

As usual, the Patreon version will be a first playable demo/beta, followed later on by a public release of the final product.

TPW was kind enough to edit a script for me that spawns a few crows over dead bodies/animals/zombies, it's pretty neat as a natural visual marker for a potential looting opportunity, it works for player kills and AI kills during the day. Feel free to tinker and/or improve etc. etc......

// VARIABLES
tpw_crowonly_active = true; // global activate/deactivate
tpw_crowonly_sunrise = ([] call BIS_fnc_sunriseSunsetTime) select 0;
tpw_crowonly_sunset = ([] call BIS_fnc_sunriseSunsetTime) select 1;

// CROWS
tpw_crowonly_fnc_crows =

	while {true} do
		{

			{
			_crowflag = true;
			} else
			{
			_crowflag = false;
			};		
		
		if (tpw_crowonly_active && _crowflag) then
			{
			_closedead = alldead select {_x distance player <200};
			_fardead = alldead select {_x distance player >200};
			
			// Add crows to nearby bodies 
				{
				if (_x getvariable ["tpw_crows",-1] == -1) then
					{
					_crows = [getposasl _x,15,ceil random 3,15] call bis_fnc_crows;
					tpw_crowonly_crows = tpw_crowonly_crows + _crows;	
					_x setvariable ["tpw_crows",1];	
					sleep random 10;
					};
				} foreach _closedead;

			// Remove crow spawning flag from distant bodies
				{
				_x setvariable ["tpw_crows",-1];			
				} foreach _fardead;	
			};	
				
		// Crow wrangling	
		for "_i" from 0 to (count tpw_crowonly_crows - 1) do 
			{
			_crow = tpw_crowonly_crows select _i;
			// Delete distant crows
			if (!(_crowflag) || _crow distance player > 200) then 
				{
				deletevehicle _crow;
				tpw_crowonly_crows set[_i,-1];
				};
			};
		tpw_crowonly_crows = tpw_crowonly_crows - [-1];	

		// Reset bodies to not spawn crows
		if (!_crowflag) then
			{
				{
				_x setvariable ["tpw_crows",-1];	
				} foreach alldead;
			};
		sleep random 30;
		};
	};	

[] spawn tpw_crowonly_fnc_crows;

while {true} do
	{
	// dummy loop so script doesn't terminate
	sleep 10;
	};

 

 

Boars...

 That's pretty sweet. That would help in the Ravage mission I made for SP where the main complaint was trying to find the bodies

The full fat version that come with TPW Mod has a few more features like additional sounds plus the crows disperse if there's near-by combat. The version he edited for me is pretty basic and was mainly for the hunting aspect. 

I'd imagine if you ran that script during a regular Ravage scenario with bandits, renegades and zeds the skies would eventually look like this...

Well this is also my approach without loops :

 

//________________ Settings ________________

GF_Crows_Limit 					= 4;	
GF_Crows_time					= 40;
GF_Crows_areaSize 				= 20;
GF_Crows_areaSize_random 		= 20;	//	+ random
GF_Crows_height 				= 20;
GF_Crows_height_random 			= 20;	//	+ random




GF_Crows_Count = 0;


GF_Crows = {
	
	if(GF_Crows_Count > GF_Crows_Limit)then{GF_Crows_Count = GF_Crows_Limit;};
	
	if(GF_Crows_Count < GF_Crows_Limit)then{
		
		GF_Crows_Count = GF_Crows_Count + 1;
			systemchat format ["%1",GF_Crows_Count];
			
		//	[position,areaSize,number,height]call BIS_fnc_crows
		_crow = [_this, GF_Crows_areaSize + random GF_Crows_areaSize_random, 1, GF_Crows_height + random GF_Crows_height_random]call BIS_fnc_crows;		
		_time = time + GF_Crows_time;
		waituntil{time > _time};
		{deleteVehicle _x;}foreach _crow;
		GF_Crows_Count = GF_Crows_Count - 1;
		if(GF_Crows_Count < 0)then{GF_Crows_Count = 0;};
			systemchat format ["%1",GF_Crows_Count];		
	};
};


addMissionEventHandler ["EntityKilled",{
	params ["_killed", "_killer", "_instigator"];
	if(isNull _instigator)then{_instigator = _killer};	// player driven vehicle road kill

	if(_killed isKindOf "CAManBase"

		/*
		//________________	You can filter the side here	________________
		
		&& {((side group _killed) == west or 
			 (side group _killed) == east or 
			 (side group _killed) == independent or 
			 (side group _killed) == civilian)}
			
		*/
	)then{

	_killed spawn GF_Crows;
	};
}];

Latest results of my AI driving test sessions :

I used a vehicles module with "extreme" setting to populate Malden with hundreds of vehicles and wrecks, and programmed a UGV to go through some of the bigger towns...

And the thing successfully navigated through them : 30 minutes without crashing or turning over. There are still a few quirks, like odd pathfinding decisions or small collisions with the bigger wrecks, but at the end the UGV had its 6 wheels intact.

The difference with vanilla behaviour is ridiculously huge.

 

I think we're ready for a small update. cigare.gif

Can someone help me out? I'm placing traders on Livonia, and they sometimes work, sometimes they don't.

These are the errors I get, I think they are related to vanilla weapons/stuff? I tried on and off , but no results, switching presets between Altis or Chernarus makes the traders work sometimes and then they stop working.

 

This is happening only on Livonia terrain.

Also wanted to mention Diwakos stalker like anomalies mod - just tested it out for the first time with ravage and man... awesome..

I have a strange problem. I don't know if it has to do with the latest update.

 

22:32:37   Error position: <createSimpleObject [_t, [0,0,0], true];
>
22:32:37   Error 3 elements provided, 2 expected
22:32:37 File ravage\code\rvgLoot\loot_init.sqf, line 33
22:32:37 Error in expression <ache;
if (_f isEqualTo "") then {

_f = createSimpleObject [_t, [0,0,0], true];
>
22:32:37   Error position: <createSimpleObject [_t, [0,0,0], true];
>
22:32:37   Error 3 elements provided, 2 expected

 

This error pops up continuously in my mission. I think it's triggered every time it tries to generate loot/when i go near houses. There is still loot, nothing seems to really be affected.

There is a tweak for version 1775: "Furnitures are now spawned as local simpleObjects"

Maybe that's the cause, but why would nobody else have the same problem?

The parameters of the array for simple object must be one smaller for simple object?

 

edit -hmmm seems odd.

A few questions.  

What does the Gear Pool Module effect:

Traders?

AI?

Loot?

 

Is there a way to control what is available for traders to sell?

 

Last, I have a gear trader added to the map that often has so many items in his inventory that it scrolls off the screen and the exit button is not visible.

My waepons trader and supplies trader have the limited list that is expected.

Could explain how you did that? Given that steam removed that feature more than 18 months ago.

This is Arma though, I’m used to finding a slick vehicle that’s in running order, use it for a bit, see a group of nasty bandits to my left, being completely oblivious to what lies ahead in the road...

 

Annnnnnd now I need a dual set of front tires...

 

And I have bandits trying to flank me now....

 

**Always seems to happen**^^ 😂😂😂 

 

Or when you take that corner just a little too fast, and you roll your shit... Been there too.

 

Good ole’ Arma never disappoints. 😉
