  1. Just launched my server from TADST with no mods or custom parameters. Only thing that seemed to be forced was "-filePatching". From server .RPT log: "C:\steamcmd\steamapps\common\Arma 3 Server\arma3server.exe" -port=2302 "-config=C:\steamcmd\steamapps\common\Arma 3 Server\TADST\default\TADST_config.cfg" "-cfg=C:\steamcmd\steamapps\common\Arma 3 Server\TADST\default\TADST_basic.cfg" "-profiles=C:\steamcmd\steamapps\common\Arma 3 Server\TADST\default" -name=default -filePatching Btw using "-noSound" kind of makes sense in my mind. Maybe BI didn't take the sound rendering out of the server. In which case using "-noSound" would save some CPU cycles. Also, not saying that the former is true, but it's more likely than you think seeing as how I had to install DirectX to get the server to launch on my fresh Windows Server 2019 installation. And on the topic of useless startup parameters for servers I've been wondering is there any point in setting "-exThreads="?
  2. @tophe Been using TADST for several years now and it makes swapping out mods in a large modpack a breeze. Love this tool. One thing I'd like to suggest, once you have the time and have updated the difficulty settings, is the addition of a way to set "admins[] = {UUID}" in the server.cfg. Thanks for all the work you've put into this. Edit: Just remembered another suggestion I thought of earlier. Only a small tweak, but it would be nice if the "select all" right click context menu in the "parameters" field accepted the "ctrl+A" shortcut. I know you're pretty busy in life at the moment so if it's more than a handful of lines of code I wouldn't bother with it though. Once again, thanks for this awesome tool.
  3. 3den Enhanced

    To my understanding most of the objects included in a lot of mods are capable of being simple objects, they just haven't been updated since the whitelist was implemented. Most of the objects in CUP Terrains Core for example I've always made simple objects in the past. But even though CUP has been updated since, there's still no whitelist config in it. Also, doesn't the command "BIS_fnc_replaceWithSimpleObject" cause a lot of lag at mission start if used on too many objects? I know a lot of objects don't work as simple objects, but there's a bunch more that do and the checkbox is disabled. I understand you probably want the mod to be usable by novice mission editors, so best bet would probably have it off by default and have a toggle in the 3den preferences to enable the checkbox for all objects. I know there are a lot of mission editors who would be really appreciative of such a function; There was a thread back several months ago where there was a huge argument with the devs over the implementation of the whitelist.
  4. ARMA 3 Addon Request Thread

    Mod Request: US Military Police I'm looking to see if anyone already knows of, or is interested in making, a US Military Police pack of some kind. I'm primarily interested in patrol cars, particularly a Chevrolet Malibu in USMC MP livery preferably with authentic lights. Although anything, such as uniforms, other gear, etc would be great. Here's a photo of the Chevy Malibu I believe the USMC MPs use on base.
  5. 3den Enhanced

    Not sure if you've found out yet, but that was a change made by BI a while back. The 'simple object' checkbox now operates on a whitelist system where mods are now required to whitelist each of their assets to be simple objects. As far as I'm concerned they should have gone with a blacklist system so that old mods have the checkbox available by default. Anyway, @R3vo, I was wondering if there's any way that 3den Enhanced could force the checkbox back into existence for all objects. I understand that BI made the change for a reason, but I feel that advanced users should be able to apply the simple object attribute to anything they feel necessary. I'd imagine it'd be simple enough to add the checkbox back; That's assuming that the whitelist doesn't get double checked on mission load as well, though.
  6. So I tried this out just now for the first time. Previously I'd used the other code directly in the object's init. Seems you can't directly use arrays within the params array, as arrays already serve another purpose. Instead of simply removing the brackets around the arrays, which would render the execVM that calls the script hard to read and tedious to modify, I used the following solution which was an example on the wiki page for params: params ["_emitter","_brightness","_color","_ambient","_lightPoint"]; _this select 2 params ["_rC","_gC","_bC"]; _this select 3 params ["_rA","_gA","_bA"]; _this select 4 params ["_lpX","_lpY","_lpZ"]; _lightpoint = "#lightpoint" createVehicleLocal position _emitter; _lightpoint setLightBrightness _brightness; _lightpoint setLightColor [_rC,_gC,_bC]; _lightpoint setLightAmbient [_rA,_gA,_bA]; _lightpoint lightAttachObject [_emitter, [_lpX,_lpY,_lpZ]]; Hopefully this helps anyone who needs this in the future. Also, since my last post I've learned to use the config viewer and I found the correct parameters for the camping lantern: _nul = [this,1,[0.6,0.8,1],[0.006,0.008,0.01],[0,0,0]] execVM "createLightPoint.sqf";
  7. Ah, alright. Hope he's doing well. Last I'd been on the forums he was active and I'm a fan of how clean his code is. Oh wow, I feel silly now. Has this been around since 3DEN first came out? I recall glancing over that module a few times but had no idea what it did and I assumed it was added by some mod I had installed. I'll check it out right now.
  8. @kylania Trying to get this to work with triggers, without having to define an array of trigger names in the script. Trigger's "On activation": this call peeta_fnc_removeMapObjects; InitServer.sqf: peeta_fnc_removeMapObjects = { { _position = position _x; _size = triggerArea _x select 0; {hideObjectGlobal _x} forEach nearestTerrainObjects [_position, [], _size]; } forEach _this; }; The reason I'm using triggers is because I can visually see the area affected in the editor and I don't have to add a marker to an array each time I want to add another area to clear. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
  9. Alright, found the problem. Was that sneaky little extra "[". Now for some reason though the vehicle won't keep it's paintjob and it won't respawn at the start location. And a major downside to this over the BIS module is that the BIS one keeps curator editable objects still editable after respawn; Is there any way to fix that? Btw this is what I'm using now: 0 = [[MRZR_1,MRZR_2],["start","start"],3,true,false] spawn MGI_fnc_VehicleRespawn;
  10. Where do I put this? 0 = [[crate2,WEST,karl,CIVILIAN],[["death","start","start","start"],10,true,false] spawn MGI_fnc_VehicleRespawn; // example Does that stay in the initServer.sqf or do I put it in a vehicle's init? When I put everything in initServer.sqf and configure that line I get loads of errors. This is what I had it set to: 0 = [[],[["start"],3,true,false] spawn MGI_fnc_VehicleRespawn; // example
  11. Ah, alright thank you. I guess the source of the issue with the server is somewhere else then. I figured the check was bugged but I didn't realize it was separate from how the server actually checks. Now I need to figure out what exactly the server doesn't like about my signatures when it disconnects me... Edit: Is there somewhere other than the server RPT file where it'll show the reason a client got disconnected?
  12. Alright, so I run a private server for myself and my friends. One of my friends decided to install a mod that disables weapon sway. I don't want anyone cheating on the server so I immediately enabled a PBO check in ACE3 to deter him. Suspecting he might try to find a way to slip the mod into another PBO that's already part of the modpack or use an injector I turned on BattleEye and enabled signature verification v2. This is where the problem comes into play. No one is able to connect to the server if signature enforcement or BattleEye are enabled. If BattleEye is on you get disconnected without any message before you even get to the roles screen. If only signature verification is on you get "session lost" or something like that and returned to the server list again. I couldn't find anything in my client or server .rpt file about why anyone's being kicked. So today I tried running "-checkSignatures" and found a likely cause. The RPT is full of this for pretty much every .bisign file except vanilla pbo's: 23:07:58 Key not found for signature C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@ace\addons\ace_magazinerepack.pbo.ace_3.12.1.31-88963cda.bisign Test FAILED! 23:07:58 Warning Message: Key not found for signature C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@ace\addons\ace_magazinerepack.pbo.ace_3.12.1.31-88963cda.bisign Test FAILED! 23:07:58 Signature tests for C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@ace\addons\ace_magazinerepack.pbo.ace_3.12.1.31-88963cda.bisign PASSED! 23:07:58 Key not found for signature C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@ace\addons\ace_main.pbo.ace_3.12.1.31-88963cda.bisign Test FAILED! 23:07:58 Warning Message: Key not found for signature C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@ace\addons\ace_main.pbo.ace_3.12.1.31-88963cda.bisign Test FAILED! 23:07:58 Signature tests for C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@ace\addons\ace_main.pbo.ace_3.12.1.31-88963cda.bisign PASSED!

  13. Throttle System Option

    I think that was a flaw in the keybindings for the mod that got patched a while back. It was updated again after the Jets DLC so that the afterburner only turns on at a certain throttle setting with the new system. Admittedly, the mod was updated after I went flying off the deck, so it might have been the afterburner and I just wasn't paying attention. I still however don't understand what @oukej is talking about with 18km/h. I set my throttle to 4% in the Caesar BTT and it quickly reaches 22km/h and continues to slowly accelerate until I reach a turn in the taxiway. I really don't understand why the devs are so against it. It's a combat game, not a flight simulator; As has already been discussed the last thing you want in a combat zone is to be finicking with the throttle. There's a reason real life CAS and fighter aircraft have HOTAS and all manner of electronic flight envelope protection. Also it's pretty sad to see some people have had to completely give up flying in Arma 3 just because of this one simple thing that can be fixed in probably less than a days work by one or two junior programmers.
  14. Yes, very true. Odd, I was taught that everything in the U.S. and Canadian Military was metric, including aviation. Now I'm curious what the Canadian Airforce actually uses; Feet and knots would make more sense due to civilian aviation. And here I thought I was just bad at landing... Glad to know floater landings are normal. I just wish the PAPI lights worked during the day so I could get my glideslope right.
  15. I mistakenly thought that only certain items weren't being removed. The markers aren't removing anything at all actually. "clearArea_1" works fine at removing a knocked over trash bin and some trash piles without touching the 3 barracks buildings in between. I'm trying to remove some bushes, trees, rocks and a rusty fuel truck wreck in the middle of the field at the end of the runways at Altis International Airport. I've got a base set up at the 3 barracks on the North East end of the military base/airport combo. The area I'm trying to clear is the field South East of the road that runs from the 3 barracks South West to the two hangers. Hope that's descriptive enough. Now that I realize it's not just select items not being removed I'm suspecting it's likely that my script isn't correct. Maybe it doesn't like that I'm defining multiple strings or something. Edit: Here's a screenshot of the area: Once I get it working I'm probably going to add more markers North West of the road to remove the trees and make some sort of heliport or maybe a shoothouse. The whole reason I want to clear all the crap out is to make a shooting range down the South East part.
