Wont say its impossible, im sure someone has a bit of knowledge out there on how it can be down (probably with an extension), but from a basic-intermediate scripting standpoint, you are not able to do this

You can put down a billboard, then put a trigger on it. A really small one so that you need to stand right next to the billboard to activate the trigger. Then sync the trigger with the "Strategic Map Module"?

 

Another way would be to use addaction on the billboard's init line.:

null = this addaction ["Open Strategic Map", "openMap show"];

Hope this helps. And these are workarounds if you mean "live map" on an object like, literally.

The thing i wanna do is have a billbord for brifing on missions.

 

I want to be able to use the map gesture mod .. and want to be able to put in markes...

 

in that way when i am doing a brifing i can open my map and the same map will show on the billbord

you can force open map for every player when you open yours instead and close it when you close yours.

 

How ???

no, when you want ppl to attend the map, and you must do it on very client.

 

An easy way is to use a radio trigger, activation once, and when you are with your buddies, then tell them to pay attention.. you radio 0-0-1 and ta dah, everyone sees their map.

You want to use openMap.

forceMap is for forcing map screen in cutscenes.

This ^^^ Yeah, sorry, forceMap opens noninteractive map

 

On the other hand, if you want players not being able to close it and watch you adding markers and what not, you can openMap for yourself and forceMap for other players

He wants to put a map display on a billboard, not just open the map display.

 

Certainly not an easy thing to do. I have looked into it a bit, but not willing to invest the time to explore using screenToWorld type stuff to create a map dialog where the billboard is located onscreen.

I'm not at home so I can't run tests on your issue @neman.ekd btw with the satellite mod you can also access the satellite by deploying an antenna and connecting it to the U.T.D. tablet. Both can be found in the inventory items.
