  1. Spyder's trying to get everyone killed. No change there.
  2. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release 1.2.1 Critical Fixes and Updates, ACE IED compatibility, Side Mission improvements Following on from the amazing addition of the ORBATRON aka The Orbatterer, SpyderBlack continues to add fixes and updates to the only in game faction creator around. It's a seminal piece of work where wanna-be faction modders can finally make their OPFOR dreams come true. SpyderBlack has added the ability to customize unit ethnicity, language and insignia. Vehicles can now be further customized by specifying different crew classes for each turret. The entire ORBAT Creator has also received a visual lift and a bunch of new export options. All of this has been rounded out with some splendid general fixes to provide a smoother experience. Meanwhile we had several reports that the ALiVE helicopter pilot's level of service has been dismal. Everything from forgetting to drop off replens to not even bothering to sling load supplies were some of the main complaints. Apparently, even factions without helo's had access to OPFOR helo resupply, leaving many commanders in the field wondering if the Russians were up to something dodgy. Comrade Tupolov has contacted the various combat service supply units and given them a good bollocking. Helo resupply and logistics now reliably deliver to requests and factions can be limited so they don't resupply using someone else's chopper. We had several requests to support ACE IED's in the ALiVE IED threat module and ALiVE Asymmetric Warfare options. Tupolov has implemented a system that supports most third party IED mods, as long as those mods are using vanilla "mines" as the base class for their IEDs. More feedback welcome on our GitHub. Command & Control also received some improvements. Aircraft can now assume a hybrid role of both Transport and CAS (using the CS_TYPE = "hybrid" value) when using the Combat Support module. There were also reports (thanks Shukari!) of HQ not using appropriate voice protocol for tasking (C2ISTAR), this has now been fixed. Don't forget about the cool "side missions", which include the following taskings (auto generated if you wish): Assault on a military installation Defence of a military installation Assault on a civilian installation Assassination of a HVT Hostage Rescue Combat Search and Rescue Transport insertion Seek and destroy enemy infantry Seek and destroy enemy vehicles Sabotage a military/civilian installation Patrol an area (as an insurgent) Destroy military assets (as an insurgent) Minor fixes include addressing an error that was only apparent when player persistence was turned off and players disconnected from a mission using persistence. Auto pause of virtual AI and relevant systems when there were no players on the server has also been fixed, ensuring AI insurgents don't spread across the map like wild fire. Minor updates include new ZEC composition updates (thank you ZEC!) and improved error handling when OPCOM factions have not been placed on the map. Again, we had a bunch of people that didn't want to use ALiVE due to us overriding the vanilla ABORT button, so we've fixed that. Thanks to everyone for feedback both here and on our forum!

  3. No. You'd need to use the BIS Respawn Menu for that.
  4. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release 1.1.0 Apex Features! We're as excited by the Apex release as everyone else and have been working hard to ensure ALiVE supports the expansion. This major release brings compatability with Apex and the Tanoa map as well as new features, major overhauls of existing functionality and several fixes and tweaks. ALiVE modules now allow mission makers to choose the APEX factions. The appropriate faction vehicles, weapons and supplies are spawned where necessary along with faction groups. ALiVE also includes a map index of Tanoa in order for ALiVE AI commanders to operate throughout the AO. Many thanks to the Bohemia Interactive and specifically their Tools Commissioner Julien Vida for providing us with a critical data export to enable this. Military Logistics Overhaul Tupolov has been elbows deep in the Logistics code. Military Logistics and the associated Player Combat Logistics requests have been reworked to be more streamlined and reliable. When the Virtual AI Commander requests Battle Casualty Replacements, the Logistics Commander will determine the best method of delivery to the front line dependent on the route and type of units requested. For example, if there is water in the way he will prefer airborne insertion using transport helicopters, slingloading light vehicles and dropping infantry. Combat Support Transport helicopters can now sling load light vehicles giving more flexibility to players. When placing the Transport module, mission editors can select whether the helicopter is capable of sling loading. Note that the ability to lift objects and vehicles is still dependent on the size and weight - a littlebird will not be able to lift a tank! A number of cargo boxes will automatically be added that can be filled with kit and underslung for convenience (we're aware that this may not be to everyone's taste but it's a placeholder until we figure out a slicker method of providing slingable transport crates). Before ordering a transport heli to pick up an object, players should take care to ensure the surrounding area is clear so the AI pilot knows which object to pick up. It helps to put a marker on the map over the object to be lifted to assist with accurate selection. As this is a new feature it is prone to bugs so please report any issues on our bug tracker on github. Virtual Battle Overhaul SpyderBlack has introduced the first part of a major enhancement to the virtual battles between profiled units. The relative strength of units is now taken into account in every engagement and virtual entities will take damage and casualties as the battle progresses, so even if they defeat the enemy they may be in a reduced state. The overall outcome is that virtual battles tend to be longer, larger in scale and players can immediately see the impact when units spawn into the visual world. Additionally, AI Commanders can now task air units to provide Close Air Support for virtual battles and future plans include the ability to request artillery and reinforcements from nearby units to assist in the battle. Intelligence We are working on developing more feedback to players to indicate what is going on behind the scenes in the Virtual world. Eventually this will take the form of an Intelligence Overhaul, reworking the rather disjointed map indications into a more realistic and comprehensive intel suite integrated into the C2ISTAR tablet. For now though, we have added some indications of when a virtual battle is taking place so players know where to go to get in on the action. More Maps Friznit has been working closely with members of the community to index more maps. The momentum is really beginning to build with the indexing tools and we are cracking through the backlog. New maps indices have been added for Diyala, Sugar Lake, Nogova, Sarugao A3, Bozcaada and of course Tanoa. We have also updated the indices for N'Ziwasogo v0.94, Al Rayak v0043. More to follow soon!

Specifically: 1. Slingloading is still a bit wonky in places. Disable it in the module options if you prefer to wait until we've spent more time on it. 2. Tanoa Index occasionally spawns helis inside the terminal buildings. If it's a problem, disable ambient vehicle spawns at these locations for now. 3.

  5. We generally avoid indexing maps until they're fully released as it is quite likely there will be changes before then that would mean re-indexing. That said, most of us are still considering whether Tanoa is actually worth buying so you may be better of indexing it yourself anyway!
  6. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release 1.0.7 Updates This is a further maintenance update to fix a few issues related to the new author values. We squashed a couple of bugs and deconflicted keybinds with BIS and ACE map drawing tools. ALiVE Advanced Markers now uses CTRL+ALT+LEFT CLICK to add and delete markers.

  7. Maquez, please see here: https://github.com/ALiVEOS/ALiVE.OS/pull/16 If you can contribute to that PR would be great!
  8. Guide is here: https://github.com/ALiVEOS/ALiVE.OS/wiki/How-to-Set-Up-Dev-Environment
  9. Wiki is fully up to date, unless I've missed something. If so please send me a link and I'll fix it. Some of the early youtube tutorials may be though.
  10. https://github.com/ALiVEOS/ALiVE.OS.git ALiVE.OS - Open Source We kept ALiVE closed during dev to facilitate source management, version control and support for what we knew was going to be quite a complex beast. However, we always intended to open up the source code once we had achieved a stable, feature complete release. We are now largely content that we have achieved that, notwithstanding the bugs that we are still working on and new features that we would like to include. So as of today we have changed the licence from a restricted Creative Commons to an open GPL v2 for all builds after 1.0.5.1605051 (the latest official release) and put ALiVE in a public git repo for everyone to fork as you wish. There are some caveats and everything is explained in the licence file but in short: 1. ALiVE is free software and may not be monetized in any way (that includes servers that try to get around it with "donations for perks") 2. You may release forks of ALiVE but please make it clear that it's not an official version to avoid confusing everyone. 3. We strongly encourage everyone to help develop the official Master version using git Branches and Pull Requests. Full details are on our Github wiki. Not So Frequently Asked Questions Why GPL v2? It's an older licence but many of the other big mods like ACE use it, so it'll facilitate code sharing. What about ALiVE Plugin? The War Room and its API Plugin (ALiVEPlugIn.dll and ALiVEPlugIn.so) remain on the closed Creative Commons licence for now. There's a lot of propriety stuff in there and licensing is a headache but there's nothing to stop a clever person getting funky with sys_data and exploring local DB options. ALiVEClient.dll used for map indexing and some future advanced features is also closed source. However, if you wish to contribute to either of these plugins please contact us and we can arrange access to the repo. Mikero's Tools? They're needed for building and indexing maps but the ones we include are an older freeware version. We strongly encourage everyone to buy the latest from Mikero's site. Without his genius, ArmA modding would not be possible. Have fun!
  11. You certainly should not round up all the civilians and put them in an internment camp so the insurgents have no recruiting base....
  12. Please note that you will need to get ALiVEServer from the War Room as usual! (Yes, I pressed quote instead of Edit again)
