Need help with mission script

Recommended Posts

So what i wanna do is to make an ai join my group when i'm at a certain distance away from him. Problem is, it could be random where he is. I've tried the "Attatch To" script but it doesn't seem to work for me and i've also tried to use "if (_x distance <5) but that doesn't work either. I'm not very good at scripting : /. Any help with this would be appriciated.

Well. A pilot is ejecting from a plane and then the player needs to find him and when he does, the pilot will join his group. Thing is, he could parachute out anywhere.

Ok there are marker for pilot

waitUntil {(getPos pilot select 2) < 2 };
		
	_markerpilot = createMarker ["pilotmarker", getPos pilot];
	_markerpilot setMarkerType "hd_objective";
	_markerpilot setMarkerColor "ColorGrey";
	_markerpilot setMarkerText "PILOT";
	_markerpilot setMarkerSize [0.5,0.5];
	
	_pilotpos = [] spawn {
	
		while {alive pilot} do {
	
				"pilotmarker" setMarkerPos getpos pilot;
				sleep 2;
		};
	};

Next is the ask is that for MP or SP?

I gotta learn arma scripting at some point, it's just the fact that there are around 1700 scripting commands O____O

waitUntil{sleep 0.5; ((player distance PILOTNAME) < 2)};
[PILOTNAME] join player; 
//at the end of your init.sqf (easiest way)

You could also use a trigger for that

 

Condition:(player distance PILOTNAME) < 2

OnActivation: [PILOTNAME] join player;

 

 

Replace PILOTNAME with the name you gave the pilot in the editor.

Don't get intimidated by the amount of script commands, the language is mostly very simple, and most of the command you'll never use.

private ["_markerpilot", "_pilotpos", "_pilot"];
		
waitUntil {(getPos pilot select 2) < 2 };
		
	_markerpilot = createMarker ["pilotmarker", getPos pilot];
	_markerpilot setMarkerType "hd_objective";
	_markerpilot setMarkerColor "ColorGrey";
	_markerpilot setMarkerText "PILOT";
	_markerpilot setMarkerSize [0.5,0.5];
	
	_pilotpos = [] spawn {
	
		while {alive pilot} do {
	
				"pilotmarker" setMarkerPos getpos pilot;
				sleep 2;
		};
	};
	
waitUntil {({isPlayer _x AND (_x distance pilot) < 10} count switchableUnits) != 0};

[_pilot] joinSilent (group player);
terminate _pilotpos;
deleteMarker _markerpilot;

Test it!!

if you're like me (a scripting noob) and use the editor triggers alot this is what I do for SP;

 

Give the pilot a name then just make a trigger with the condition...

Player distance INSERT_NAME_HERE < 5

 

in the ACT of the trigger paste this...

INSERT_NAME_HERE joinAsSilent [player, 2];

 

works every time in SP even if you have 10 teammates already.

Good luck! :)

waitUntil {({isPlayer _x AND (_x distance pilot) < 10} count switchableUnits) != 0};

This make no sense. In SP there is only ONE Player. And if the player in game, switchableUnits more the 0. You can use this code in MP. But you have to change switchable to playable

 

Btw: Waituntil checks per frame. Slow it down and use sleep-command inside. You do not need frame checks in this case

 

For singleplayer is this enough:

waituntil {sleep 1; player distance pilotname < 10};
[pilotname] joinsilent group player;

Or use a trigger. R3vo wrote a example
