This is perfect for a mission I have in mind as well. Starting the mission in a blackfish for an infantry paradrop but wanted an ammbox airdropped as well (in case anyone wants to tweak their gear).

 

this appears to be a quick and easy fix for that.

 

Thanks!

Hi everyone. I modified the script to add a little immersion. I added a "throw smoke or strobe" for drop position, plus some vanilla radio sound (supply request/supply dropped.ogg) that plays when you call the script. Works nice.

Only thing I wish is to get a "drop denied" if smoke or strobe is not thrown..

Anyone willing to look into that?

This is what I got so far.....

if they're not thrown then _signalArray will be empty right?

 

Quote

if (count _signalArray == 0) exitWith { hint "you didn't throw a smoke or IR"};
 

_signal = _signalArray select 0;

_signalPos = position _signal;

 

would work if you just want drop to abort if no smoke is thrown   :slayer6:

You're DA MAN BROTHA!!!!!

..and exactly where I insert it here?

private ["_signal","_signalPos"];
if (count _signalArray > 0) then {
	_signal = _signalArray select 0;
	_signalPos = position _signal;
} else {
	_signalPos = position player;
};

LIKE THAT?

if (count _signalArray == 0) exitWith { hint "you didn't throw a smoke or IR"};
private ["_signal","_signalPos"];
if (count _signalArray > 0) then {
	_signal = _signalArray select 0;
	_signalPos = position _signal;
} else {
	_signalPos = position player;
};

 

Thank you man!

well... if you just want the script to abort then do you still need to define _signalPos in the if statement? To me it seems like either the pos is defined by the smoke grenade or not at all so i just put it after the exitWith

Quote

private ["_signal","_signalPos"];

if (count _signalArray == 0) exitWith { hint "you didn't throw a smoke or IR"};
 

_signal = _signalArray select 0;

_signalPos = position _signal;

 

...or

Hello Zagor!

 

Very Nice Idea!!!

Once you are done with the changes in the script ,  can you share also here?

and also would be cool ,  a link to your mission here as ex:  once it's done!

the smoke grenade check could be before the "for "_x" from 1 to (1 + (random 5)) do {_stuff};", where it is now it will recheck for the smoke grenade for every crate, so the start script would be:

 

Quote

if(!isServer) exitWith {};


private ["_Plane_sound","_x","_signal","_signalPos"];
_x = 0;

_signalArray = [];


_smoke = position player nearObjects ["SmokeShell", 50];
_strobe = position player nearObjects ["B_IRstrobe", 50];
_signalArray = _signalArray + _smoke;    
_signalArray = _signalArray + _strobe;

 

if (count _signalArray == 0) exitWith { systemchat "No smoke Grenade or IR thrown"};
 
systemchat "C a r g o   A i r d r o p s    I n i t i a l i z e d";

 

_signal = _signalArray select 0;

_GF_random_pos = position _signal;

 

//The number of the Cargo to spawn (on random)

Appreciate that... 

Also does anyone know how exactly I could set this to where its random meaning I don't call one in whatsoever, however, it drops in random locations every 30 minutes or so with random loot? I'm not too good at scripting and I've been trying to make it work but it seems as if I'm not quite skilled enough you could say lol... Again many thanks for the help..

Im just setting up a survival mission for myself using Ravage... The air drops are great as i tested them and all so all i need really is just to have random drops with medical equipment from ACE etc in just random drop locations with like 2 opfor units guarding it or something... Just to add an element to the survival experience :D

On the  _next_drop_in_sec =   put your time  like 30 minutes  (30 minutes =1800 seconds)

 

_next_drop_in_sec =  1800 ;

 

to fill your crate with ace equipment check here:

ACE3 Class Names

https://ace3mod.com/wiki/class-names.html

 

to add some guards you can do this:

 

add this at the bottom of the script just before the last  };

 

Check Below in the script:

define your team :

#define ReconTeam "I_Soldier_SL_F", "I_Soldier_TL_F", "I_soldier_UAV_F", "I_Soldier_M_F","I_medic_F","I_Soldier_AR_F"

 

and set their distance (1300 meters)

_randomPos = [[[_Close_Cargo, (1300)],[]],["water","out"]] call BIS_fnc_randomPos;

//add this in the bottom of the script just before the last  };

_Close_Cargo = _Cargo getRelPos [0, 12];

private ["_ReconTeams","_enemiesArray","_randomPos","_x"];
#define ReconTeam "I_Soldier_SL_F", "I_Soldier_TL_F", "I_soldier_UAV_F", "I_Soldier_M_F","I_medic_F","I_Soldier_AR_F"

	_enemiesArray = [grpNull];	
	_x = 0;

	//for "_x" from 0 to (1 + (random 4)) do {
	
	_ReconTeams = createGroup independent;
	_randomPos = [[[_Close_Cargo, (1300)],[]],["water","out"]] call BIS_fnc_randomPos;
	_ReconTeams = [_randomPos, independent,[ReconTeam]] call BIS_fnc_spawnGroup;
	_ReconTeams setCombatMode "RED";	
	
	_enemiesArray = _enemiesArray + [_ReconTeams];

 
while {true} do  {
//hint"WP ReconTeam updated";
{
	deleteWaypoint [_x, 0];	
	_waypoint1 = _x addWaypoint [(_Close_Cargo),0];	
	_waypoint1 setWaypointType "SAD";//SAD MOVE
	_x setCombatMode "RED";
	_x setSpeedMode "FULL";
	_x allowFleeing 0;	
		}foreach [_ReconTeams];
	 sleep 50;
 };
