Released!  Both Vanilla and CUP versions are published to Steam, and my onedrive link here:    https://onedrive.live.com/?id=5B54FC51A7917265!156668&cid=5B54FC51A7917265

CUP version is available separately!

 

I've been playing with the different artillery selections so their max ranges should be accurately simulated.  Up to 300km range on the SCUD so it should work on even the big-huge maps out there.

 

Arty Fire Mission

Spoiler

/********* pook_ARTY Artillery Fire Mission Function *********************************************************************

Initiates player-requested artillery fire mission for friendly AI-controlled arty units. This can be scripted for
mission-driven artillery support fire missions by "real" units on the map.  The use of in-mission active AI
artillery units makes the counter-artillery strike mission a real possibility.  Enemy guns can be eliminated;
friendly artillery has the potential to be destroyed. Consider a scripted mission with enemy AI calling in
artillery strikes and you and your SF squad is tasked with finding and neutralizing the artillery units!  

The function can be assigned to a forward observer, spotter, or other "control" unit, and enemy artillery may
become active by careful use of triggers or condition scripts to dynamically change mission parameters.

All these possibilities exist due to "real" units on the map making use of this function, which turns artillery
into a dynamic aspect for any SP or MP mission!

This function currently supports:
 - POOK_ARTY: 2S19, 2S1, 2S3, 2S5, A-222, 9K58, TOS-1A
 - POOK_AFV: Pandur M-121 Mortar carrier
 - CUP: M270, BM-21, M1129 mortar carrier, 2B14 mortar, D30, M119
 - VME_PLA: PLZ-05, PLZ-07, PL-96 (aka Type 86 - D30 copy), PP87 mortar, PHZ-10, PHZ-81, PHL-03, PLL-05
 - RHS: M119, D30, M109, 2S3, M252 mortar, 2B14 mortar, BM-21, M142 (HIMARS)
 - BIS vanilla artillery

SRBM and SCUD fire missions are provided in their respective functions contained in the pook_Arty pack.

Please comment in the BIS forum topic if other units should be considered for addition to this list.

Author: hcpookie

Arguments:
==========
    0: The player calling the mission
    1: TYPE: The artillery ammo type being requested (default = "HE")
       "HE", "SMOKE", "ILLUM", and "CBU" types are available.
    2: OPTIONAL: Range (in km) to check for friendly launchers (default = 20km)
    3: OPTIONAL: Map grid coordinates. Uses standard coordinate format (ex. [0,0,0]).

USAGE:
======
1. Place an AI artillery unit via editor, or spawn within mission.

2. Add the function to any forward observer, fire controller, recon vehicle, specops radio, etc. depending on your
   mission needs. The Fire Controller should be a Commander/Spotter/Radio operator, etc. or a forward observer
   vehicle operator.  The controller could even be a scout plane, helicopter, etc. that would be in a position
   to request the artillery missions.

   The controller assignment is added either via "addAction" or via a trigger/script to assign the desired ammo
   type to an Artillery Fire Controller.  

   Note that the ammo type values are CASE-SENSITIVE!  Supported types are: "HE","SMOKE","ILLUM","CBU".  The
   function will default to "HE" if no value is passed:

           this addAction ["Arty Mission", {[player] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION},"",1,false,true];
            - or -
        _arty = [this] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION;


    ----
    HE:
    ----
    Using the HE value will launch a conventional high explosive arty fire mission. You may replace "player" with
    the object's "Variable Name" (in the editor) depending on your scripting needs:

        this addAction ["Arty Mission", {[player, "HE", 20] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION},"",1,false,true];

    
    ALTERNATIVE USAGE: You may also use a trigger/script in place of the artillery controller:

        _arty = [this, "HE"] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION;

    -------
    SMOKE:
    -------
    Using the SMOKE value will launch a covering smoke barrage fire mission.  You may replace "player" with
    the object's "Variable Name" (in the editor) depending on your scripting needs:

        this addAction ["Arty Mission", {[player, "SMOKE", 20] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION},"",1,false,true];


    ALTERNATIVE USAGE: You may also use a trigger/script in place of the artillery controller:

        _arty = [this, "SMOKE"] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION;

    -------
    ILLUM:
    -------
    Using the ILLUM value will launch a flare illumination fire mission.  You may replace "player" with
    the object's "Variable Name" (in the editor) depending on your scripting needs:

        this addAction ["Arty Mission", {[player, "ILLUM", 20] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION},"",1,false,true];


    ALTERNATIVE USAGE: You may also use a trigger/script in place of the artillery controller:

        _arty = [this, "ILLUM"] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION;

    -----
    CBU:
    -----
    Using the CBU value will launch a cluster munition fire mission.  You may replace "player" with the
    object's "Variable Name" (in the editor) depending on your scripting needs:

        this addAction ["Arty Mission", {[player, "CBU", 20] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION},"",1,false,true];


    ALTERNATIVE USAGE: You may also use a trigger/script in place of the artillery controller:

        _arty = [this, "CBU"] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION;

3. OPTIONAL: The third input parameter defines the search radius to seek friendly AI artillery units.
   Default search is 20km.  This can be adjusted to accommodate multiple forward observers in the same mission.

   Example - to narrow the search for friendly units to 4km, change the input as follows:

           this addAction ["Arty Mission", {[player, "HE", 4] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION},"",1,false,true];
            - or -
        _arty = [this,"HE",4] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION;


4. OPTIONAL: Map grid Coordinates.  Uses standard coordinate format (ex. [0,0,0]). May be used for scripting
   purposes. If no value is passed, the fire mission operator will prompted for map-click coordinates.

   Example - to create a fire mission for a fixed position such as an enemy camp at map grid 150256, change
             the input as follows:

           this addAction ["Arty Mission", {[player, "HE",,[150,256,0]] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION},"",1,false,true];
            - or -
        _arty = [this,"HE",,[150,256,0]] spawn pook_ARTY_FNC_ARTYMISSION;


5. Once the inputs are provided, the function will only select artillery units that meet the following criteria:
    - Only AI units are considered
    - Stationary - vehicles that are moving or in transit (either in a convoy or being airlifted) are ignored
    - Friendly AI units on the side (will not select neutral units)
    - Units in range of fire mission coordinates
    - Units with available ammo for the selected type of fire mission
    - Only alive units are selected; if the unit is destroyed, dead, or captured, the unit will not be tasked

6. The AI gunner will first fire a spotter smoke round, and within 45 seconds all units within the battery will
   begin the main artillery barrage.

7. Each AI unit will fire a random amount of artillery, anywhere between 3-8 rounds.

8. If AI is in a group, all similar units in that group will fire a salvo.  Different artillery types in the same
   group may not participate in the fire mission.

RETURN:
=======
 - AI will send sideRadio and sideChat notices confirming fire mission or reporting status if
   out of ammo, or no friendly artillery units are in the area (default 20km zone).

NOTES:
======
 - Cannot be used for human-controlled artillery units.
 - Fire Mission command cannot be aborted!
 - The artillery in the pook_Arty mod is calibrated to Real World values, and can launch
   anywhere between 1-40km depending on specific unit's capabilities.
 - Time on Target may vary greatly depending on distance, AI skill, and the specific arty unit's reload
   times (which are adjusted to Real World values in the pook_Arty pack).

No one ever said it would be a Christmas release.  I said "coming soon" which is as specific as I can be at present and that is in Geological terms of "soon"  :)

 

If it is ready by Valentine's day I'll be surprised.

 

I would really like to make some static arty to complement the SP arty versions but I don't think I will go down that road.

Progress!  All conventional and rocket artillery is calibrated to their published distances.  I can't confirm the 9K72 (SCUD-300km) or 9K720 (Iskander-500km) max ranges because there is no map big enough to make the test - not even PMC's maps on which I've been testing!  Doubt anyone will complain about that :)  No idea how AI will work with the "artilleryFire" command at 100km ranges however the config should allow them to function regardless.  We'll see I guess.

 

I haven't explored dispersion although I wish to provide the SCUD with a wider CEP since it should have around 3,000m CEP (!!!) vs. the 9K720 Iskander which is in the double-digits.  Might be nice to have a "realistic" SCUD for those long range barrages which would mean you could never be sure it will really hit the target.  I need to look into that some.  As for the rest of the arty, they are considerably more accurate so they can probably remain as-is or perhaps altered only slightly.

 

3D models are mostly done and need very little except for some turret memory point config changes for the gunner views. 

 

Texture sets are about halfway done and progressing nicely.  I've replaced the older texture sets that weren't really working that well with some better configured and color-matched textures.  Overall things are looking better.  Vanilla and CUP configs are planned.

 

I am thinking about adding a reload truck so the ammo is available for reloads.  Otherwise it will be tricky trying to rearm in the middle of a mission!

Along with that Reload truck, can you make some Ammo crate configs for reloading from crates?   For bunker settings with ammo crates piled up next to the weapons/SPGs?

Like a "reload ammo crate"?  I imagine I could do that... good idea!

 

I'm going to look at the gunner memory points on some of the vehicles and try to fix some broken animations - barrel recoil animation going the wrong way, things like that. 

 

I have a few vehicles that does damage to itself when you shoot the weapon.  I think the weapon mem points are too close to the 3D model but I can't be certain on that yet.

Hi hcpookie. Do your arty units use unique values for their mags and ammo, or do they inherit straight from BIS values? I'd like to accommodate your artillery when I re-release my artillery addon. Not sure if the rocket stuff is doable, but the tube stuff should be easy enough.

Well of course they have unique values as the default BIS values won't accommodate the distances... not sure exactly what you're asking

Good news!  The remote SCUD launch script is working now.  Via action or script, you can order a SCUD fire mission.  And the SCUD can reach out between 1km and 300km making SCUD hunts possible.  And General Guba will be a threat once again!  :D  I'll have to make a video.  I still have to ensure all factions have good paint jobs before they can roll out.  Some minor physx problems on some of the vehicle but nothing serious.  Also, fuck physx! lol

 

Also... hinged fenders on the 2S19 along w/ the muzzle brake's anti-corrosion paint.  Oh and also articulated barrel brace in travel mode.

The menagerie so far.  I have about another afternoon's worth of tweaks to make before they are ready to play.  Yes they are that close to release.

 

Yes there are a few additional goodies in there.
