Hi everybody,

 

I tried to make removing weapon trigger but it doesnt work ...

My goal is simple : when an independant enter inside a trigger named "TR1", all of his weapons are removed 

 

I want to make a firerange with auto-weapon control system

 

By advance, thank tou guys

@ALPHIVE,

Try something like this in the ON ACTIVATION field of your trigger,

{ removeAllWeapons _x } forEach units thislist;

Have fun!

Does it return an error?

 

Have you tried putting,

hint "it worked!";

in the trigger without the script?

This will only work for independents so just to be sure: you're not testing with a blufor soldier are you ?

The problem is: you want to remove the weapon for units entering the trigger, (and perhaps, in a second time, you'd want to give them some kind of weapon for the pattern).

 

A trigger (repeatable) fires when the condition is met (here some indep unit present), applying the code on thisList (which is the list of compliant unit(s), usually the first one or the list at start if any). Why the first one while in game? Because the trigger scans the condition every 0,5 sec and it's harder to make 2 or more units entering at the same 0,5 sec slot. Once the condition is met, you need to deact the trigger to react it again. I'm far from Arma for testing but you need to deact (empty thisList) if you want to see a good result:

The condition could be:
this && thisList findIf {_x isKindOf "CAManBase" && !(count weapons _x isEqualTo 0)}  > -1

This way, the trigger will fire if an infantry unit has some weapon (vehicles are not concerned), and deact after it removes all weapons of thisList, so it should rearm at the next slot.

NOT TESTED

The second step, adding some other weapons, if any, needs to pass a variable on each disarmed unit, to be treated apart.

I only tested on a single player character. Now I understand. Trigger lists are not a "real-time" tally. A trigger creates its list at time of activation and fixes those values until it's fired again.

Not exactly. thisList is updated every 0,5 sec. but the code runs only at each activation. So, you think thisList isn't updated but in fact the code needs to be fired again if you want to deal with this update. The only mean to re-run such code is to deactivate (make the condition wrong again) and play the repeat.
