Notes:

GF ALIAS Anomaly Spawner Script  , is a configurable spawner for ALIAS Anomaly Scripts.
I was asked several times on how to spawn them automatically ,
without any editing in the 3D editor and create multiple spawns.
This is why i created this spawner :
The scripts of ALIAS are NOT included !

 

This Spawner Script is supporting the following :

Burper
Farty
Flamer
Screamer
Smuggler
Sparky
Steamer
Strigoi
Worm

 

Everything in the description.ext , is ready to use with these scripts.
There are settings for :

Debug
Max Number of the spawned scripts
Blacklist Zone distance
Safe distance spawn from players
Select ( scripts )

 

The spawner will work automatically , without need of placing Markers in the 3Deditor.
The spawn position will be random.

 

#CAUTION :
Inside the Description.ext , the initServer.sqf and the initplayerlocal.sqf ,
there are extra codes for Farty and Flamer Scripts.
If they are not in use , they must be deleted.


Credits and Thanks to :

#SPECIAL THANKS TO ALIAS !
He was my motivation to start scripting.
I'm following him all these years and for me , it's a unique person.
The least that i can say is , thank you ALIAS for everything !

 

Thanks to All script contributors
Thanks to everyone who tries to do the best for this game!
Thanks to BIS for such a great platform .
Thanks to BIS Community and BIS Community Forums .
Thanks to Armaholic Community and Forums .

Hi George,

 

I am a mission newbie. So do I just open an existing mission, and copy and paste all the contents from your

 

Description.ext 

initServer.sqf

initplayerlocal.sqf

 

into the existing mission pbo files of the same name?

 

Then add the anonomly scripts and sounds folder into the same directory as the above files like:

 

Description.ext 

initServer.sqf

initplayerlocal.sqf

AL_swarmer folder

AL_burper folder

Sounds

 

Or do I need to move all the files from AL_xxx folders into scripts?

 

There is also an init.sqf so do I merge the custom code from initserver.sqf into init.sqf instead?

 

Please advise. I want to edit an escape mission to test this.

 

Thank you!

Hello there Valken !

 

-I don't remember if the sounds for the escape mission are defined in description.ext or in another .hpp file.

 

-The swarmer script was not included in the list , because it's working differently from the other scripts.

 

First , you need to download the Alias scripts that you want to use and add the folder like :

AL_burpy

in the mission folder.

Then you need to add all the files from my example mission , or include them in the files that there are existing.

Inside my files , there are also some comments , that you need to follow , in order to use or exclude the codes , for the Farty and the Flamer scripts.

 

In your case you need to exclude these lines from the , description, initPlayerLocal and initServer.

 

so in your case,  you need only to add in the initServer :

//________________	Main_init	________________
[]execVM "GF_ALIAS_Anomaly_Spawner\Credits.sqf";	//	Please keep the Credits or add them to your Diary
[]execVM "GF_ALIAS_Anomaly_Spawner\Main_init.sqf";

and add the certain ( or all ) the CfgSounds , from the description.

 

If you don't make it to work , i'm here to check this as well.

I'll be waiting for your news !

Hi GF, 

 

I tried your original mission in Stratis, SP and it works. 

 

But I copy all the scripts to an MP Tanoa mission folder, it would hang at loading.

 

I tried to load it in SP and it loads into the Tanoa map, but no anomalies show up on the map.

 

So is it because the mission.sqm needs to add the anomalies and the set it to MP?

 

Can it be set to randomize the anomalies zone, between x - y distance, except for water, then set to spawn when any active player or AI, but not ambient animals comes within A or B to the zone to save on performance?

This is tested and working in SP/MP and Dedicated.

Might be that you are doing something wrong ?

 

For the performane , alias scripts will work when a player is close the anomaly, so don't worry about this.

The anomalies spawn position will be on a random ground position.

I totally agree with you George, the scripts dont effect server performance. It all starts spawning in & moving when players get close to the mission.

Hi I'm sorry to bring up this topic, but even following the instructions, I can't spawn or see sfx from most the anomalies.
And the flamer and strigoi aren't showing up.
I dunno why


NVM. I figured out that I'm stoopid.

it crashes each time for me and im not sure why i get this error HERE.

 

The +GF_ALIAS_Anomaly_spawner_Script.Stratis mission linked in the first post appears to be missing the AL_farty folder and the description.ext can't copy something that isn't there.

 

If you know what you are doing, a temporary workaround might be to download AL_farty from here.

Or, wait on a response from @GEORGE FLOROS GR.

 

//	+GF_ALIAS_Anomaly_spawner_Script.Stratis description.ext
//    Ln 88:
#include "AL_farty\equipment_prot_toxic.hpp"

Thank you very much @Maff !

 

Everything is actually there ready to work , so if you don't want something in all that , you can just exclude ( delete or comment the lines )

 

description.ext

//________________	RscTitles	________________

class RscTitles
{
//________________	Farty	________________
#include "AL_farty\equipment_prot_toxic.hpp"
};

 

initServer.sqf

//________________    Flamer    ________________
#include "AL_flamer\functions_flame.hpp"

how to install scripts from ALIAS.

 

Hello there Stalk1st aka NaUdachu !

Welcome also to BI forums !

 

My script is ready to play with the scripts of ALIAS just by adding the ( ALIAS ) scripts into your  mission folder and check about the settings ( in my script )

 

Further more you can check here :

 

ask me for anything if you don't understand.
