  1.  At what point in all of the ongoing development, making of DLCs, etc...is B.I. going to address the MAJOR bug/problem of
    their AI being totally unable of dealing with bridges of any sort. Whether vehicles or dismounted infantry, they just

    stand/sit there totally brain dead. Hell, if they can't address the issue, higher a programmer who can. The current

    situation as it stands is just ridiculous.

    Hey @Oddball-47 Ronin I haven't been on much for the last couple of months ( just had to get on with some other things). Great to see someone else incorporating my script into a  mission. Il grab it from Steam and have a go.

    Thanks to Aussie battler as well for error spotting. I'll check that and sort it sometime soon. Thanks for the positive comments about the script as well.

     

    Edit: Oddball - I ve just read your blurb on steam - I'm blushing.

     

    Bah, no need to blush, Bunc.  This truly is a really neat script and is a perfect fit for "Unsung". Sadly, for me, I've only been able to play the
    mission once in a group. My tiny band of warriors has either grown bored with Arma or are just so caught up in other things and real
    life, that we've not played it but once, and that was two weeks or so ago.
      Again, my thanks to you and Accuracythruvolume. I really had a wonderful time getting back into the editor and stumbling my

    way through making a mission with it.

  3. Hi Ranger, thanks man. I invested WAY too many hours into it with the editor and had to
    compromise a bit in a number of places due to Arma's AI becoming brain dead when it

    comes to water. But, I'm happy with the end product. I think it'll play out nicely in

    a group setting.
      Our first and only time playing it with five of us, Russ, an old Marine captain
    got shoved into the leader slot because the rest of us are slackers. He was
    too devious for me and wound up bypassing several enemy patrols I had

    laid out enroute to the first objective. I've addressed that with a few additional

    small patrols and have re-worded the mission briefings such that "Bridges/crossings

    will be used whenever possible as swimming across a river with 60 pounds of

    gear on one's back may result in drowning casualties." 
      This allows me to "funnel" movements to a certain degree and should increase
    the "pucker factor" a bit.

      Have fun with it and holler if you come across any "uh ohs" or have any ideas

    on how to make it better.

  4. Hi The Real Bunc, et al.
     I've just finished up what I hope will be a bug free "final version" of a "Nam mission in which the DynamicCamo Script
    plays a HUGE part. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you once again for the script, Bunc and also
    a big thanks to "accuracythruvolume" whose posts showed me how to implement it in a multiplayer environment
    with respawns. Salute to you both!

    Overview

    July, 1965, Rung Sat Province, Vietnam.
    You are part of a Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG) team which has been tasked with locating the routes/trails which VC/NVA
    forces are using to bring down weapons and equipment from the North and which are being stockpiled in the Rung Sat Province of Vietnam, specifically, the Doung Island area.

     

    Mission features:

    (1) "The Real Bunc's" DynamicCamo Script; a work of pure genius and which
    works marvelously within the mission. Move about slowly and quietly, stayin'
    crouched and low, you'll be all puckered up when in the dense jungle, you
    spot a VC patrol mere yards from your position; oblivious to your presence.
     Wait 'til they move on, and continue your patrol.
      You can read about it here:

    https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/223202-release-dynamiccamo-script/

     A big thanks to The Real Bunc for his script and to "accuracythruvolume"
    who adapted it for use in multiplayer!

    (2) Progressive respawn points: As you progress along the map, a number
    of respawn points are generated. So, if you suffer an "uh oh" and get
    shot to hell and die, you'll have the option to respawn at one or more
    points on the map, dependent upon your progress.

    (3) A virtual arsenal located near "Captain Slaughter's CP" on Base Mike.
    Choose from a astounding amount of uniforms, gear, weapons of the Vietnam era.
      
    (4) Highly immersive soundtrack which lends itself well to the eerie movement through the waterways and jungle.

    (5) Over 200 sound effect triggers; some positional such as VC/NVA voices, birds
    squawking, flapping, monkeys hollerin'...well, you get the idea. Hearin' voices
    on your left? Maybe on the right? Oh dang, they're close!

    (6) Runnin' low on weapons/ammo? You'll probably come across some small 
    enemy stashes if you do a good job of your recon patrol. If not, well, you
    can always strip some gear off any enemy you were forced to gun down.

    (5) On call artillery fire support, helicopter transport and helicopter supply drops.

    (7) Random enemy patrol script ensures replayability. The majority of patrols
    begin within and patrol in random fashion within designated "zones". They never
    begin at the same point, nor patrol in the "paths" each time you fire up the mission.

    (8) And, thanks to Sergeant Dennenboom, an "official" end to the mission.

    Mission Notes:

      You'll want to set your music and effects sliders to 50 percent (ideal for me).
    Of course if you want to tone it down or jack it up, that's entirely up to you.

    Read the briefing and check the map out to get a feel for what you need to do and how you
    want to go about it. The basic Situation, Mission, and Execution briefs are contained
    in that. As well, there is a "Credits" section listing all the fine gentlemen whose
    tutorials I have watched, scripts I have used and to all of them, I give my sincere
    thanks.

      Issues I have come across:

     You and your team begin the mission in a "Huey" enroute to Base Mike. It's a rather
    "interesting ride". (I can say no more.) The other night, playing on our server,
    not everone in the group started in the chopper. We backed out of the server,
    restarted the mission and all worked well; all of us were in it fine.

      Basic thrust of the mission:

     It's a pure recon mission. Well...mainly. Your job is not to pile up dead NVA/VC
    bodies, but to patrol the designated area, attempting to locate paths/supply routes,
    evading patrols when able to and there's some flash traffic which comes in to
    Captain Slaughter's CP which once read, may add an additional bit of tension
    to your mission/plan.

    Have fun and feel free to holler if you run across any issues, or have a comment(s)
    or even a complaint. I'm quite open to continue working on it. Actually, this
    particular mission is "Part 1" of what will be a Two or Three Part "series".

    (Odd hollers to the projectionist: "Orville, run the credits now like a good lad!")

  6.  First off, I freely admit I am an idiot, and have zero coding/scripting skills.
    That being said, after three or four hours of giving myself a headache in the editor

    I have been able to get the script to work after a player dies and respawns.
    I did it by putting a "onPlayerRespawn.sqf" file in the mission folder and putting
    the following into it: 0 = [player,"DEBUG",0,1,0,1,5] execVM "camo_script\Camoscriptv1.5.sqf";

      I had tried copy and pasting Accuracythruvolume's into an init.sqf file, but was getting error
    messages when I fired up the mission, so for craps and giggles I tried using just one line
    of it in the "onPlayerRespawn".
      I put the mission up on our server, connected to it, and ran it, and it seems to be working
    fine even after respawning.
      Now I just need to get one of my friends to join the server with me to see if it works
    on his end, too.
      My sincere thanks to Bunc for the script. I think I and my friends will have a LOT of fun
    with it!
      And thank you as well to Accuracythruvolume for posting up his script lines. 
    My workaround would not have worked without them. Salute!

  7. Hi Frizy,

      First off, thank you very much for putting this mission/mini-campaign together. I'm very much

    looking forward to playing it with my Arma 3 friends this coming weekend.

      I've loaded it up on our server and have completed the first two tasks. However,

    I had expected to be able to save my progress as you describe it as a mini-campaign.

    However, my only option was to "abort" upon closing it down. 

      Is there a way to save one's progess in the campaign?

     

    Best regards, Odd


  8. Hi Scott,

        I hope you get some fun out of it, amigo. If you ever find yourself bored on a Saturday night

    and want to hook up for some "coop" mission playing, we've got a very laid back and lighthearted

    group that plays on our server every Saturday night at 9PM Eastern. You (and anyone else) are

    more than welcome to PM me for details and we can run some missions together.

      Happy hunting!

     

    Best, Odd


  9. Hi Scott,

       I've worked up both the night and day versions to have AI enabled. I've put 'em in Dropbox and you can find 'em here:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/cnduucokejuup2u/The_14th_Valley_Day_v1_4_AI.DaKrong.pbo?dl=0

     

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ccc5rpibgddrjbk/The_14th_Valley_Night_v1_4_AI.DaKrong.pbo?dl=0

     

      You can just copy these into the "MPMissions" folder within your main Arma 3 installation directory.

    Holler if you run into any problems. I've never made a "single player" mission, but I've played this

    from within the editor by selecting "play in multiplayer" and it works just fine with me alone playing it.

    Same when I've played/tested it from our server.

  10. Hi Bardem,

      It was made using the "Delta" version of Unsung. I've never seen that particular issue come up during our play on our server

    or in testing it in the editor when selecting "play as multiplayer". The only error message I/we get is the usual "nam16" one which

    is a "Delta" version issue.

      Are you actually able to play it once you close that error screen down?

     Maybe if you de-pbo it and change the initial loadout uniforms to something that hasn't been changed in the "Echo" version you

    can get around that. 

      That's actually something that has caused me a bit of worry; the fact that missions made using "Delta" might not be

    compatible with the upcoming "Echo" version. When I first started playing "Unsung", several missions I'd downloaded

    which had been made with the "Charlie" version were unplayable in "Delta".

      Anyway, I'll go back and edit the Workshop description to reflect the fact the mission was made using "Delta".

    Good hunting,

       Odd

     

    Edit: Just checked the Workshop and the original description area for the mission did state Unsung 3.1d as 

    a requirement.

      


  11. Hi Vengeance,

      I hope you enjoy it. I had a lot of fun working it up. Holler if you run into any problems/glitches. We've played it a lot

    with four to six of us, and it can be pretty tough sloggin' through the bush to get up to "3 Canyons" itself.

    Thankfully for the player, there are a number of respawns at various points on the map which are generated

    once a player(s) have reached a certain point on the map.

      If you'd like to join us some Saturday night (we hook up every Saturday at 9PM Eastern on our server) you're

    more than welcome to join us, or bring a fireteam of your buddies along as well, if you play with a group. 

      I'd be easy for me to modify this and a couple of other "Unsung Vietnam" missions I've got to accomodate an

    additional fireteam or two.

      We're currently running about ten or twelve mods on the server, but it'd be easy for me to set it up for just

    Unsung, CBA_A3 (Unsung requires it) and Task Force Arma Radio (TFAR). We just started using TFAR and

    it's added a nice dimenision to missions. Teamspeak is also a "must".

      We're a very laid back group, not a "milsim" unit and we've got a very nice, small group of good folks who 

    play it. There's never any "drama". :)

      We allow any other mods a person wants to use, as well, as long as they're not "server side". ie: have to be

    loaded on the server in order to use. Stuff like Blastcore Phoenix, No Sway, Dynasound 2, and Enhanced

    Soundscape, and Remove Stamina. These are all client based and are entirely optional.

      You can PM me for details on the servers (Teamspeak and Arma3) and I'll be happy to share those

    with you and perhaps we can coordinate things from there if you like. 

      And no, I won't try to "recruit" you to our "squad", "The 47 Ronin", so don't feel pressured at all.

      

    Best regards, Odd

    (9) And thanks to Sergeant Dennenboom, an "official" end to the mission. 

    Mission Notes: 

    In order to guarantee that you respawn with your arsenal kit/loadout, remember to "SAVE" it while in the arsenal screen.
    It is VERY important to ensure before beginning that your sliders for "Effects" and "Music" are set to at least 50 percent. 
    (Mission sounds/music based on those levels.) 
    It is recommended to set the "Radio" slider to zero to reduce/eliminate annoying AI chatter. 
    Read the briefing and check the map out to get a feel for what you need to do and how you 
    want to go about it. 
    It is suggested also to disable all AI in the slots not taken up by a human player.

  13. Thank you once again, TeTeT,

      I very much appreciate your spending your time and effort in getting me pointed in the right direction.

    I'll give this a shot. I think I can paste that text into a script file and then have it execute with the init.sqf .

     

    Edited to add:

      It was even simpler than that! Opening the properties for the armoury/arsenal, I noted it had an "init" space in it.

    Pasting your line (below) removed 'em! Oh man, you rock, TeTeT. Thanks a ton.

    Hi TeTeT,

       Thank you very much. But... (there's always a "but", right?) I never play singleplayer and would like to use this for cooperative type

  15.   You guys need to get off your high horse and cut the guy some slack. He's got his original post up there and it's quite

    easy to see what he meant in his English version. Who cares if he provided a translation beneath it?

     


  16.   I voted for "Apex" but only because of the vegetation in it which allows for magnificent maps like Duong Island and Da Krong in the "Unsung" Vietnam

    mod.

      I'd actually like to see less eye candy and have BI allocate more resources to their 3d modeling for things such as -enterable buildings-.

    To me, there's few things as annoying as working to clear a small village or town and find 90 percent of the doors are not functional.

    It detracts from the gameplay and ruins my sense of "immersion" in the game/mission.

      I seem to recall a number of posts complaining of the same issue/perception; that being that BI has begun making fewer buildings

    enterable in the "Apex" DLC. I see that trend if so, to be a poor decision.

      Who knows, maybe enterable buildings will be DLC down the road. ;)

  17. Hi Eggbeat et al,

       First off, I want to state for the record once again, that I think the "Unsung" Vietnam mod is absolutely fantastic

    and I and a small group of friends are still having fun with it. 

      The Duong Island and Da Krong maps absolutely rock! I've left the others availlable in the editor alone as they just

    don't impart to me the "feel" of Vietnam. But that's due to them being leftovers from Arma 2 days, and hell, maybe

    even the original Arma?

      Anyway, I stand before the Unsung Court to plead my case. That being: Please, please, remove those extremely

    annoying voices one constantly hears, especially when in the arsenal screen. They're driving me insane. If I hear that

    yokel say "Did he say anything else?" one more time, I'm takin' a .45 to my brainpan.

      Is there anyway at all in the "Delta" version to shut that off? ie: maybe a magic script line I could put somewhere?

    Or maybe a .pbo that could be made availlable which replaces that sound file(s) with just dead air?

      When I first started playing and editing using Unsung, the banter was interesting and fun to listen to. But after

    spending literally two hundred hours in the editor and hearing it, it has worn thin.

       As "George" once hollered in one of the "Seinfeld" episodes: "Serentiy Now!"

      What sayeth The Court Of Unsung, Gods of Mods ?

    I'll be posting it up on the Armaholic website as well. (For anyone new to Arma, Armaholic is a wonderful

    repository of all things Arma related; missions, scripts, tutorials, ad infinitum. By all means check it out.

    Mission info can be found below:

     

    Coop: recommended 2-4 players (will allow 9) 

    (single player not tested)
    Requirements: ArmA 3 Unsung Vietnam War mod, CBA_A3, Apex DLC

    April, 1967. You are part of a MACV SOG team which has been ordered to locate and destroy several NVA AA guns in the "Muah Quah" area of operations located on Doung Island of the Rung Sat Special Zone, Vietnam. 
    Mission features: 
    (1) the ability to respawn at one of three points in the event the player(s) suffer any misfortunes in the field. ( Make sure you spawn at HQ initially.) 
    (2) Highly immersive soundtrack which lends itself well to the eerie movement through the waterways and jungle. 
    (3) Numerous sound effects add to the atmosphere. 
    (4)Full arsenal availlable to kit out with; both at Headquarters and Outpost Kable and scattered throughout
    the map. (Look for U.S. ammo crates in and around enemy installations and emplacements.) 
    ( Bring LOTS of flares; you're gonna need 'em) 
    (5) On call artillery fire support. (Accessed via the "0" (ZERO) key at the top of your keyboard. Scroll wheel options availlable after that. 
    (6) Option to insert/remove earplugs at any point in the mission. 
    Make certain you take one of the PBRs parked at the "River Rat Boathouse" once you've seen the general and kitted up. 
    (7) Random enemy patrol script ensures replayability.
    (8) And thanks to Sergeant Dennenboom, an "official" end to the mission. 

    Mission Notes: 

    It is VERY important to ensure before beginning that your sliders for "Effects" and "Music" are set to at least 50 percent. (Mission sounds/music based on those levels.) 
    It is recommended to set the "Radio" slider to zero to reduce/eliminate annoying AI chatter. 
    It is also very important to the flow and immersion of the mission to begin at Headquarters, 
    see the general to get your orders and then take one of the PBRs located at the "River Rats 
    Boathouse" to begin the mission. 
    Read the briefing and check the map out to get a feel for what you need to do and how you 
    want to go about it. 
    It is suggested also to disable all AI in the slots not taken up

  20. Hi guys,

      I stumbled across this thread while searching for an answer to a question I had with regards to using sounds

    which are part of a -mod- rather than those I've grabbed on the 'net and placed into my working mission folder.

      Okay, so, I've got a folder named "sound" which contains my custom sounds, and they're all specified in the

    "description.ext" and play fine. As well, I can adjust the audio level within the desciption.ext for each one.

      The mission I'm working on uses the "Unsung 3.1 Delta" Vietnam mod. I've just discovered that when I lay

    a trigger down that I can specify sound/voice files which are -embedded- within the Unsung mod as .PBO

    files. This presents me with a plethora of additional sounds to use in the mission, which is wonderful.

      However...l (there's always a "however", right?) I see no way to set the volume of those "Unsung"

    sounds which I can select via the trigger properties window. 

      So, my question is this: "Is there a way to set the volume property for any of those embedded "Unsung"

    sound files?

      My thanks for any help/assistance you can provide me.

     

    Regards, Odd
