thank GF.

 

Thank you very much guys !

I tried to make this as much as configurable.

One problem that i found was about using the correct symbols , for ex: about the uav.

I could use though if istypeof (#classname) but i haven't for now.

 

I was trying to get this to work , but maybe it needs the module in order to use it? :

I haven't test this with the module.

 

Thanks again !

Hello baton !

 

/*
		//________________	You can filter the side here	________________	
		&& {((side group _x) == west || 
			(side group _x) == east || 
			(side group _x) == independent || 
			(side group _x) == civilian || 
			(side group _x) == sideUnknown)}
		
		//	&& (side _x == playerSide)	// only for the Player side
		//	&& (isPlayer _x)			// only Players
		*/

In case that you want to get this work for the side of the player  , then you should enable the playerside

&& (side _x == playerSide)	// only for the Player side

so in case that you are playing as east , you will see only the east side units.

 

If you want to change this only for a certain side , you can use :

&& ((side group _x) == west)

else you can delete or change the lines  from the code as :
 

//________________    You can filter the side here    ________________    
        && {
			(side group _x) == independent ||	//	this means "or"
            (side group _x) == civilian)
			}

GF,

 

     You may want to try the unitIsUAV command. It is more reliable than isTypeOf for UAVs because some of the AR-2 variants are actually defined as helicopters. 

 

I'm looking forward to trying this with my group, thanks!
