    AI run away in fear script?

    you could use the allowFleeing command, if its a small number of civilians in a small area then you could do this from trigger on the beach area name all civilians c1,c2,c3, etc make a detected by trigger for civilians detecting your side and size it to your area make the init something like: i'm not able to test the but setting allow fleeing to 1 on a unit or group should make them run away EDIT: or you could check out phronks fleeing civilian script ๐Ÿ˜‰ a far more complete script for larger missions and more individual behavior so maybe more than you need

    Something wrong with my config

    the snippet i posted was to show you that you could have hitpoints for areas other than just the chest on a vest so that might have been why your addon vest didn't seem to have much protection. by copying that snippet over you've actually added some more errors! the comment about calling your base classes was a bit confusing but you don't want huge sections of commented out stuff that isn't needed in the config anyway, you just want the classes from the vanilla game (like you call B_Soldier_F to make your soldier)and your new entries. See EO's example is good for that when you comment with // its only removing that line, so when it reads next line that will cause an error too! for example to delete "Custom_Uniform_SS" from your config you'd have to remove class Custom_Uniform_SS: B_soldier_F { author = "Astartes"; _generalMacro = "B_soldier_F"; scope = 2; displayName = "Custom Team Leader"; identityTypes[] = {"Head_NATO", "G_NATO_default"}; genericNames = "NATOMen"; faction = "Custom_Faction"; model = "\A3\characters_f_beta\INDEP\ia_soldier_02.p3d"; //NATO Rolled Up Sleeves uniformClass = "Custom_Camo_SS"; hiddenSelections[] = {"Camo","Insignia"}; hiddenSelectionsTextures[] = {"Custom_Uniform\Data\custom_camo_co.paa"}; hiddenSelectionsMaterials[] = {"Custom_Uniform\Data\custom_camo.rvmat"}; weapons[] = {"arifle_TRG20_ACO_Flash_F","Throw","Put"}; respawnWeapons[] = {"arifle_TRG20_ACO_Flash_F","Throw","Put"}; magazines[] = {"HandGrenade","HandGrenade","SmokeShell","SmokeShellGreen","Chemlight_green","Chemlight_green"}; respawnMagazines[] = {"HandGrenade","HandGrenade","SmokeShell","SmokeShellGreen","Chemlight_green","Chemlight_green"}; linkedItems[] = {"CUstom_Helmet1","Custom_Vest2","ItemMap","ItemCompass","ItemWatch","ItemRadio"}; respawnLinkedItems[] = {"CUstom_Helmet1","Custom_Vest2","ItemMap","ItemCompass","ItemWatch","ItemRadio"}; }; no programming experience here either other than messing about with arma so no worries mate, if it hasn't driven you crazy already feel free to post the next attempt

    Something wrong with my config

    i'm no expert but you only have hitpoints for chest, when i made vests i used "HitDiaphragm" and "HitAbdomen" too. this is a snippet from my vest code that i think works ok as i pretty much copied it from the game vanilla config values: i hope that helps a bit, i also find it confusing getting the syntax right for configs as the they have been updated quite a lot and the tutorials are from various times during that process so its hard to know which is most accurate! if your config isn't too huge post the whole thing here in a spoiler box as it would be easier to see whats wrong if we could see the full config structure
  4. EDIT: sorry i'm a fool, was accidentally replying to a comment from march... anyway, love the mod as always ๐Ÿ˜„ *shuffles back under rock

    ZEPHIK Female Characters

    Hi, just checked this out today, awesome work so far! Just to note, i first tried loading a lady in the virtual arsenal but when i select female head i get a male one? Works fine dropping units in Eden editor though. Many vests and backpacks already look decent on the model (there is a bit of space round the shoulders and back) but i take it someone would need to make headgear/glasses/NVG? Would you consider creating a generic combat fatigues model too? This would allow user to easily create retextures for using with vanilla/RHS/etc setting. Anyways it is far too soon to bombard you with feature requests ๐Ÿ˜‰thanks and i look forward to seeing whats next.

    South Asia v1.4 No errors!!

    this has become common knowledge as your DMCA of somebody else uploading share-alike content was done very publicly by yourself. you yourself have provided all the facts and they are not in your favour. further on your steam page it says which seems entirely inconsistent with the share alike license your port of BI's content is actually released on whereby others are (with some conditions) from your recent activity i can either conclude that you are up to no good or completely ignorant of the licenses you are working under. either way its not been pretty to watch.

    "the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy" ....very satirical sci fi with some very funny aliens The petty Bureaucratic Vogons who destroy Earth to make way for a "new hyperspace bypass" There are the Vluhr's who (for complicated reasons) launch an Earth invasion fleet but fail to take scale into account and are all swallowed by a small dog... Or the Haggunenon shape shifter that eats one of the main characters and then mistakenly shape shifts into an nifty escape capsule. and dolphins and mice... they are apparently aliens too. I'm guessing most people who like sci fi have come across this at some point but if not CHECK IT OUT!! the original BBC radio series is actually my favorite version (the story changes a lot every time he re-wrote it)
  10. If its SP then.. couldn't you just not press the button? ๐Ÿ˜‰ i think you could remove the keybindings in the options which would effectively remove it from your game ๐Ÿ––
  11. ah right, that IS the bug! no problem, it should get fixed when drongo does his thing then, i could still write one up for the time being if you want but it might be easier just to leave it. its not really game breaking its just after doing my own configs i get a chill down my spine when i see that message ๐Ÿ˜‰

    even in the short time its taken humans to get from banging rocks together to beaming radio/etc into space we've actually been pretty lucky not to have been wiped out, even on a planet where the odds are stacked pretty well to support life. The problem of civilisations finding each other is also one of timing! Life and civilisation rises and falls in the blink of an eye cosmically speaking. the problem of finding other life is that not only do they have to be close enough to spot they also have to be there at the right time for us to spot them! our neighbours maybe died out millions of years ago, or won't happen for millions of years, by which time we may not be there to see them.

    Arma 3 could have been BIS at its peak

    i'm not sure there is an argument to be had, correct me if i'm wrong but i think enfusion uses a completely unrelated script language to .sqf so backwards compatibility isn't such an option. like you say after 17 years this is a very familiar environment to make mods in, but.. also check out the threads on AI behaviour or driving or any of the other things that the devs have been struggling with for the same 17 years due to limitations with the existing engine and what is hard coded into it. the prospect of getting a fresh start on all this is worth it, for me at least. 100% anyway with the scale of community we have for arma 3 i can see it being active even after the theoretical release of any arma 4!
  14. i was having a look at this since i've been recently fixing similar errors for my own mods (in my case i was using outdated syntax in config weapons)... but i can't find any configWeapons entries for the uniforms in ''eo_civilian_expansion.pbo"?

    that is impressive, that picture must have taken a while to set up ๐Ÿ˜‰ 22 shades of church! by volume alone contact DLC is maybe mostly a religious update?

    ACTA2 voted today by EU

    to be clear, i may dispute some of the facts above but i'm not disputing the existence of the problem.My mate worked for a local university; nearly daily he'd have some story of BS like this,. Most alarming was the time he had to spend a day explaining why hard-coding the university admission database with gender/race bias was deeply unethical. It didn't happen cos he refused to do it but yeah, that is dangerous with far reaching consequences and people are right to mobilise to correct this. But its an oversimplification to assume from this that everything is biased towards those minorities, i've seen far more evidence of racial or homophobic persecution on a much more local and physical nature than i have against me or other white males. * This is one of a few incidents, some guy just walking along the street with his kid and a car load of people drive past yelling slurs at them. he went from chill dad having a walk with his kid to looking frightened, picked up his kid checking behind him. how often have you yourself in your own community been subjected to abuse from random passerby's for being a white christian? not on twitter mind but right to your face as your walking down the street with your kid? to me it was messed up but i realised its probably not the worst the guy's had to deal with. grim. * Or the group of Syrian refugee's that requested to use a dis-used local community center to learn english and meet the local community, they were unanimously rejected because terrorism. * my muslim mate gets a ton of shit i have never had to deal with. he was pushed off his bike and broke his arm once. though to be fair he said at the time some people just really don't like cyclists, it might have been that ๐Ÿ˜‰ * ask any of your female friends for a tale of the creepy dude at the bus stop. they ALL have them. when was the last time that happened to you? this is not the government or some organisation, this is persecution by members of your own local community! i'm only reporting what i've seen myself, i can't ignore these things, what would you conclude from seeing this? So i agree we got issues we want to deal with but the gut reaction to belittle the plight of others because we are having trouble getting our point across is counter productive. There are other people who have it worse than us, i refuse to buy into the populist white male victim culture. its unmanly godammit! ;) there are huge oil and weapons deals with these countries, (in UK there are also aristocratic ties, interesting links with this and our ongoing conflict with Iran too), that ain't the left though, that's very firmly conservative. then they get PAID! copywrite and legislation is big money to... the same conservatives. Celebrety culture is kinda the fluff on the real money in media. ACTA is about "The agreement aims to establish an international legal framework for targeting counterfeit goods, generic medicines and copyright infringement on the Internet". ACTA should have zero impact on freedom of speech if you meme using original content. Not saying you won't get censured but it won't be because of ACTA, it'll be because of 'hate crime' laws surely? If you post a mod on BI forums using ripped content the moderators will remove it. is that censorship? anyway i don't wanna bang on about this forever as i'm away camping (ffs it just started raining as i type that), i agree that this is an issue @vilas or i wouldn't keep reading your bloody threads, but i do think you guys are leaning towards some extreme conclusions, dare i say common among propagandists. We got to keep the fight real or it'll be a lot harder to win. ๐Ÿ––

    ACTA2 voted today by EU

    i know what you mean, i'm not gonna try to make any kind of defense for how people behave on social media etc, there is a certain kind of crazy going on just now right enough. i'm just arguing that we should diagnose the problem properly rather than falling back on the familiar patterns. This isn't a new problem but the circumstances have changed substantially with technology. i think the highly addictive nature of social media is responsible for a large amount of the hysteria, humans get a good endorphin rush all dumping on the same person. I see no evidence that its linked to any particular ideology though, this seems to be a deeper reptile-brain problem shared by everyone ๐Ÿ˜ž . When it comes to being dicks on the internet then its very diverse eh ๐Ÿ˜‰ its still not so close to the middle ages heresey, nobody has been burned alive for not loving musicals yet. meanwhile there is an actually existing fucking witch hunt where gay people are being persecuted and i'm here, still happily free so far, reading this thread telling me that we're all the victims because we can't call people racial/homophobic slurs anymore. It seems madly disproportionate, it is not necessary to make this much of an issue out of this unless one really, really has an issue with homosexuality in the first place.

    ACTA2 voted today by EU

    you say that like the last 2000 years of European history just hasn't happened! you want no parliament, a god-ordained absolute monarch and to be forbidden to own land but have to beg for a meager strip to rent at extortionate prices and you get to fight in all his wars? We peasants have the freedom we do today because of 1000+ years of fighting for change (that's when we weren't fighting to steal entire countries at gun point of course ๐Ÿ˜‰) The whole point behind what became the EU was to finally end the long standing European tradition of blowing the shit out of each other every few years. That was usually 'Conservatives' but hey, i'm sure this time they really have our best interests at heart! HISTORY! it explains how we got here! I don't believe in post colonial guilt or whatever, It is not our responsibility to atone for past sins, but it is our responsibility to learn from our history to hopefully avoid the worst bits repeating too much. and yes that does mean we may have to change. You are typing your deeply personal opinions on an international forum for video games for example, that is not a traditional exchange, it is rational to expect to compromise. From what you've posted literally all you have to do is stop posting homophobic slurs on FB, is that really so difficult? let recap the white persecution: the london police once advertised to see if some more black or gay people or whoever wanted to join (the force is predominately white male? i think). there is zero harm in trying to increase your profile amoungst different people. Its really so simple, it helps the police do their job. Still plenty white people joining if that worries you for some reason. zero news story some people are in jail for persecuting actual people for not being a 'normal regular person' and yet people who burn a book are allowed to go free... that seems unfair? some guy got sacked for refusing to attend a compulsory training day, Volvo are gay-muslim-illuminati confirmed! and you still haven't explained how any of this is remotely on topic for the EU passing a copywrite law months ago.

    no... they don't, they mostly just want people to stop 'saying things which are common in my catholic society' so they can get on with their jobs and so on. sound familiar? you've repeatedly stated in screes of posts your opinions on this, giving the full set of half-truths, out of context adverts, shoddy youtubers and memes as evidence. what does this have to do with ACTA2?

    "Required Addons"...Editor

    unticked, its ticked by default. if it is binarised you won't be able to edit or reload mission till you find the missing addon, the de-binarise tool dedmen mentioned will help... note even binarised you can still load a .sqm file in notepad++ and the required addons list will be readable, its at the top
  23. you could rename a copy of the .rvmat, edit it so its right and then pack that with your mod and refer to it in the config be aware there is a bug surrounding custom textures/rvmats and injury textures not loading, i can't remember exactly what it is but some googling should get it ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ––

    Hell Let Loose

    I think as game worlds get larger and more detailed the task of creating a convincing AI opponent gets exponentially more complex, but there is so much development in AI in general just now (all hail our robot overlords) that it surely won't be too long before that is being adapted in gaming. One of the biggest changes i've seen in gamers over the years is that many people now play games to socialise! Which seems very strange to me who's been gaming since that mere fact made you some kind of social pariah ๐Ÿ˜‰
  25. duh... I read it and instantly forgot it apparently...
