[Release] Marker Filter system v0.9

Recommended Posts

 

Download -

http://bit.ly/MarkerFilter
 
Instructions -

 
Add mrkrfilter folder to mission root
 
Init.sqf

_fltrFnc = [] spawn compile PreprocessFileLineNumbers "mrkrFilter\FLTR_fnc_Main.sqf";
waitUntil {scriptDone _fltrFnc};

Description.ext

class CfgMarkerFilter
{
    #include "mrkrFilter\FLTR_cfg_Main.hpp"
};

Called on the player 

execVM "mrkrFilter\mrkrFilterInit.sqf";

Open FLTR_cfg_Main.hpp in the mrkrFilter folder
Enter existing markers into one of the fields (download has file from the video, so erase any wrong info and enter your own)
Change the displayname variable to edit the group name shown on the UI
Cities are added automatically.

Can define marker group name and which markers are in each group.
Can define which side can see the markers - WEST, EAST, or Default(both).

Markers entered in one of 3 arrays-
By name (easiest but most time consuming),
By type (for the somewhat organized),
By type and color (for the very organized),
As seen in the cfg from the video, you can use a different array for each marker group (for the insanely organized).

Nice....how do you get the info in the tablet? Sorry for my noobness!

 

Not sure what you mean exactly but I'll try to explain how it works.

 

The tablet (just a picture)is added to map display.

A gui control(RSCtree) is added on top of that

The info is displayed in the rsctree through fnc calls made when creating the tablet

The fnc calls use the cfg in the spoiler in the first post,  as well as command like allMapMarkers to sort through all the markers,

and decide what shows when.

Getting ready to release v1.0 

Any feedback on 0.9 would be greatly appreciated.

Great work! This looks useful. Does this work local or global? I have a dedicated server mission with a much simpler marker system that I want to replace.

It is local. You place the markers normally and the functions use setMarkerAlphaLocal to hide or show them.

Downloaded and Tried. I enjoy it. I was trying a addaction hell with global and local but map was hard to keep clean.  The only thing I would add is a disable/enable marker group variable. The effect of which would be to set a defined local variable, to true, on client and enable that markergroup for mid mission marker info update. I.E. Did you finish that get Power Grid Plans mission variable set to true then set _mrkrGroup to show in tree.  I going through your code but config functions is my weakness and I apparently there are some tv.. commands I have never used for some bad ass tree display. It is very educational but...

Thanks for the input :) I like that idea and will work on adding it in.
