Hi Folks,

 

Working on a simple "Rearm" script using the vanilla "Rearm Action" - as it's obvious the default menu "Rearm" actions are really unusable. The "Rearm" action is intended to be initiated from an Ammo Crate Action Menu. You can select "Rearm" by Player Squad or Team. There is a self-destruct mechanism included to destroy any ammo not taken - to prevent it falling into enemy hands.

 

Question [SCOammo.sqf]:  I get the yellow "out of ammo" indications on the HUD for the unit - it doesn't clear after they rearm - is there a way to force the HUD Indicator back to normal?

 

Question [SCOammo.sqf]:  Is there a way to detect the end of a reload animation of a unit - like [waitUntil]? The reload times vary greatly between weapon/unit.

 

Question [SCOdestruct.sqf]:  When I [attachTo] the charge to the pallet - the relative positioning doesn't seem to work. I can never see the charge - no matter the values (assumed buried in object). Shouldn't I be able to move the charge around on the object (ammo pallet) using the position array?

 

Question [SCOdestruct.sqf]:  If I use the "scripted charges" this works - however - I originally wanted to place a SOG incendiary grenade on the pallet (better effect) - but that doesn't work using the classname - ideas?

Hey @scottb613, a strategy I'm using in the new (and unpublished yet) version of the Vehicle Overhauling Script is to read with kind of ammo magazines the vehicles got, remove them with looping and, after that, add each new magazine again.

 

_object = _this;

_type = typeOf _object;

_magazines = getArray(configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _type >> "magazines");

if (count _magazines > 0) then {
  
	_removed = [];
  
	{
		if (!(_x in _removed)) then {
			_object removeMagazines _x;
			_removed = _removed + [_x];
		};
      
	} forEach _magazines;
  
	{
		_object addMagazine _x;
      
	} forEach _magazines;
};

_count = count (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _type >> "Turrets");

if (_count > 0) then {
  
	for "_i" from 0 to (_count - 1) do {
      
		_config = (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _type >> "Turrets") select _i;
		_magazines = getArray(_config >> "magazines");
		_removed = [];
      
		{
			if (!(_x in _removed)) then {
				_object removeMagazines _x;
				_removed = _removed + [_x];
			};
          
		} forEach _magazines;
      
		{
			_object addMagazine _x;
          
		} forEach _magazines;
      
		_count_other = count (_config >> "Turrets");
      
		if (_count_other > 0) then {
          
			for "_i" from 0 to (_count_other - 1) do {
              
				_config2 = (_config >> "Turrets") select _i;
				_magazines = getArray(_config2 >> "magazines");
				_removed = [];
              
				{
					if (!(_x in _removed)) then {
						_object removeMagazines _x;
						_removed = _removed + [_x];
					};
                  
				} forEach _magazines;
              
				{ 
					_object addMagazine _x;
                  
				} forEach _magazines;
			};
		};
	};
};
_object setVehicleAmmo 1;	// Reload turrets / drivers magazine

 

Hope this piece of code brings ideas for you.

Hi @thy_

 

Thanks - it always helps to see how others do it. Let me go over this and see if I can figure it out.

 

I've seen the following done before - but - I'm not exactly sure what it's doing. I assume it's reading some master config file for Arma. I'll look deeper into this as well.

 

Quote

_magazines = getArray(configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _type >> "magazines");

 

Thank You!

😉

Scott

Hi Folks,

 

Consolidated a couple threads into this one - I'll keep post #1 up to date - scripts are updated with progress and functional.

 

I see from how @thy_ did it - I need to delete all magazines - from unit and ammo box - then replace with what I want after I update the quantities - respectively. I think I have it. I'll be working on implementing same.

 

I posted my remaining active questions in post #1.

 

Regards,
Scott

Don't use this as it does not account for magazine wells. Use BIS_fnc_compatibleMagazines instead.

params[ "_target" ];
private _targetCenterTop = [ 0, 0, boundingBoxReal _target select 1 select 2 ];
// create and attach charge
private _charge = createVehicle[ "DemoCharge_Remote_Ammo_Scripted", getPosATL _target, [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE" ];
_charge attachTo[ _target, _targetCenterTop ];

Hi Folks,

 

Thanks - @Larrow and @Ibragim A really appreciate the help - I have much to play with. I'll post an update after I make some progress.
