  1. I guess I got my commands backwards! I thought I saw it in their example code on the BIKI, but I was wrong. Good catch!
  2. Ok, i will try this out and see how it works! And the createGroup command can use either true, false, 0, or 1 for the final argument to it. IIRC, in Boolean ogic, true =1, false = 0, so they're interchangeable.
  3. Hello all, So I'm writing a script that will be used as a function to create groups of units. The issue I'm having is that every single group that I create, needs to have a dynamic variable name, since if I use _group = createGroup in a script it will just keep creating the same group ID. I was going to try to use Format to name the groups, but I haven't used it before, and I got a little lost in the syntax. This is what I have so far: Thanks in advance!
  4. Ya know... I think it was how I was originally going to write it, and then I just got focused on that method and didn't think about it. Regardless, it runs once at the beginning and that's it, so its light on performance
  5. Hello all! SO I was recently working on a port for a popular game mode that utilizes a large number of custom positions related to static structures on the map. I got tired of manually placing the the markers, so instead I created something to do it for me! This script goes through the map you're on, and it creates dynamically named markers at the location of the desired buildings. Currently, I have the script configured to mark: -Radio Towers -Certain Military Buildings -Industrial Facilities -Certain Port components -Airfields Once the building is created, the script will create a marker at the location of the building. This marker is then stored in an array with a relevant title (_factoryArray, _militaryBaseArray, _portArray, _radioArray, and _airfieldArray. These arrays are stored as _markername_position.This script is very easily configurable to search for whichever building you want to find, as well as change the color of the markers (currently all set to blue), the type of marker (depends on the building type), etc. This mod is compatible with all Vanilla Maps, as well as the major CUP maps (I didn't add in the small maps, but they are simple to add in. Open the script and scroll to the near bottom. Simply add a case for the map name you want). All you need to do is add the script and initServer.sqf to your mission file, load it up, and you're good to go! I already configured the script to search for the specific CUP buildings, but it is possible that I missed a few. If so, please let me know, or you can also add them in the script manually. I provided comments to guide you along. Credits: Full credit goes to @Asaayu for doing the heavy lifting on the script! Permissions: Anyone is welcome to use this script, just please provide credit and/or a link back to this page. Download: https://github.com/Anaximandross/DynamicMapIndexer Happy hunting!

    [MP][COOP 1-10] State of Chaos [Ravage Edition]

    @Wei Zhao I've only made it on Malden for the moment. In the future I intend to expand it, but at this very moment, I'm taking a break from development to tend to other aspects of my life

    Mission Collection

    Hello everyone! I created a new mission that utilizes Ravage. It features things such as claimable bases, constructable base facilities to produce scrap and food, and much more! Here's a link to the forums topic:

    [MP][COOP 1-10] State of Chaos

    I have delivered in a time frame faster than anticipated!
  9. You asked for it, and here it is! State of Chaos has been reworked to be fully integrated with Ravage Mod. The Island of Malden has been overwhelmed by an unknown plague, turning the local populace into mindless killing machines. Local military forces were quickly overwhelmed, leaving only a handful of survivors behind. As one of those survivors, you must quickly scavenge for resources, secure a base, and begin to clear out the island. But be careful: this is a fight for survival, and you never know who you will run into on a scavenging run. Features: -Custom base system allows for several different custom bases around the map to be claimed -Each base features several types of facilities that can be built, including farms, workshops, and storage units -Globally defined food and scraps - work with your team to collect more food and scraps. Food allows you to capture new bases, while scraps allow you to build new facilities. Farms produce food, and workshops provide scrap every day. -Custom hunter system - watch your back in the field! You may find that you aren't the only hunter in the field. -Custom horde system - Be careful about how quickly you grow - you may find your base targeted by a horde. Hordes scale based on the number of players in the game. -Custom recycle bins - have too many items or weapons? Place them in a recycling bin located at each base to get some scrap back from them! -Dynamically spawned loot - loot spawns all over the map as you travel around. The type of loot that spawns changes based on building type. Civilian buildings have limited loot, while military bases have significantly better weapons and optics. -Random vehicle spawns - vehicles spawn all over the map, and some will require massive repairs. ....and much more! Food and Scrap System Overview: Currently, your team starts off with a total of 25 food, and 25 scrap. Food is used to claim new bases, while scrap is used to build facilities. There are two ways to get food:building small or large farms, or claiming random supply crates that spawn around the map. Scrap can be gained by building workshops, or by bringing any sort of inventory item to the recycling bin in your base. At the end of each day, the total amount of food and scrap you produce from your farms and workshops will be added to your balance. Claiming Bases: To claim a base, drive up to a marker on the map. At that location, there will be a flagpole that you can interact with. Claim the base, and then look around. There will be a laptop or tablet on a table outside that allows you to construct facility plot poles. Once these poles are placed, you can build facilities at them. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This mission is my take on a PvE game mode that I'd like to continue to grow and work on. The goal if this is to work together, not against. I may eventually make a PvP version, but currently I'm going to focus on this. There will be bugs! Please report them below, and I'll do my best to fix them. Planned Features: -Recycling vehicles for scrap -More AI Missions -Production of weapons and ammo at small workshops -Production of base items at large workshops (No idea if this is possible). -Dialogs (GUI) for better base interaction -More base facilities -Server persistence - and whatever else i can come up with! Please, feel free to request features below! THIS MISSION IS DESIGNED AROUND MULTIPLAYER. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SERVER, THAT IS OK, JUST HOST IT AS A LAN MISSION ON THE MULTIPLAYER MENU! THIS MISSION WILL NOT WORK IN SINGLEPLAYER!!!! Finally, if you'd like to collaborate on this, shoot me a message, or leave a response below. I'm currently working alone, and would love some help! =============================================================================== Downloads: Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1649084632 Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PrE26tGB273tVYnjWETWTd369ucY7mi0 =============================================================================== Finally, i'm running a dedicated server with this mission on it for a limited time. If you'd like to join, just let me know!

    Locality issues

    Yea, turns out this is a pretty complicated subject, and the entire answer to just about every locality question is, "It depends". If you look at the Biki though for every command, it'll tell you whether it has local or global parameters ad effects.
  11. Hello all! So i've been writing some scripts for multiplayer missions, but I'm having some trouble understanding locality. I have two questions: 1.) How do I decide if something if something needs to be done client side or serverside? 2.) How do I ensure that my scripts will work for both a player host and a server host? would something like if(!isServer || !isDedicated) exitWith {}; give me the desired effect? I've read through BI's page on locality, but I don't really understand it.

    Where to go next with creating a dialog?

    Yea that's a good point. If you had told me two weeks ago I would have done all the scripting I have in that time, I would have laughed. Unfortunately at this point I'm just not sure I WANT to take on the dialogs lol. I'd rather find a team😆

    Where to go next with creating a dialog?

    Wow! This is an incredibly in depth process. It's very overwhelming to look at from the front end. I imagine its pretty tedious all the way through. Thanks for all the help everyone

    It'll probably take me a week or two to get it converted over, but it should be doable! Hardest thing for me is saying goodbye to my beloved Ace 😔

    I'm actually going to work on integrating this next. Ravage actually overhauls many of the key systems that I wanted to fix anyway, such as zombie spawns and vehicles spawns. Thanks for the tip!
