  1. Thanks guys, this helps me for a project:)

    I assume you are using an old version, so dont recall the code well, but i think it is indeed what you say, yes

    @everyone just to keep you posted: i am currently working on a own hunger/thirst and cooking system that will be part of the first phase/basic build of VA3. 0. I hope that i can upload a nice showcase video soon. This is part of my goal to have a VA standalone survival system in place for VA in the future. Cheers Vd

    Looks promising, nice work!

    I think there are issues with the sides (bluefor vs opfor vs indep vs civ) , so in some scenarios the dogs wont attack certain sides. VA spawns dogs on the map and (should) put them i to a performance saving dynamic simulation cycle. I can send you my old files that would spawn dogs around players, if you want. I would have to invest some time to fix the side related issue and ensure that the dogs are cached performance friendly, but its very low on the priority list atm. I am using the jbdog version that was adapted to be mp friendly by lsvalmont Cheers Vd

    _killer Iskindof "zombie" is the filter you can use in the eventhandler:)
  8. In these times of war, I would recommend to put your money into a good mix of commodities and maybe shares in the defence industry. Nothing with production facilities in the area of chernarus (redux) however, things seem to have gone south there. Avoid real-estate, altis and co just do not seem to be stable enough. Nuked real estate loses its value quickly.
  9. Yes! And welcome to the rabbithole But i need every line of code you used and the context:) Also describe the trigger settings and how it is linked to your vehicle. Cheers Vd
  10. You would want to use it to protect code assigned to a variable. The code assigned to the variable can no longer be changed/overwritten afterwards, see biki example. variablename = compileFinal.......... Your code is now stored in that variable. Trying to change that variable will no longer be possible. Your example: Call compilefinal.... -> you are calling code right away here, not storing it to a variable. Compilefinal does not add any value. Your second example seems to be fine, in my view. I think its best if you try to re-read the biki entry, i think the example there explains it well. Mind that the "storing code in variable" part is essential. Cheers Vd

    VA complete overhaul Hi all, figured it is time for an update and outlook. The past few months have been great for the mod as I was able to take on some major milestones. Topics like hosting a dedicated VA server, persistence, base building, crafting, a proper loot economy and a better UI are no longer wishful thinking but either implemented (WIP) features or available through community members Know-how and engagement. It is great to see how a small community of like-minded survival enthusiasts have gathered around the VA project, I am having a blast on discord guys! Much of the progress was enabled by The Dudes merciless testing and bug finding. VD: Update to Steam, I did good, no bugs! The Dude:... VD: ? The Dude:…NO! VD: ... VD: Hotfix. He is also hosting the VA Test server which allowed us to test the mod in its intended environment and has provided assets and a HUD out of the blue. Thanks mate! The mods feature list has grown quite a bit and so has the list of issues. However, I also have learned quite a bit again. Hence I figured it is a good time to take the mod, separate all existing elements and rebuild, improve and extend it from scratch. For that I am taking the various scripts, look at them separately, review and optimise and put them together again one by one. For each layer of this rebuild, we will be testing the current version on SP/MP and dedicated to make sure each layer of features is solid, before adding features. The schedule looks as following (no ETA and subject to change) : Phase 1: Equipment categorisation, loot economy, player load out generator, “The Living” features (health, hunger, thirst, bleeding, infection, temperature,…), persistent save system. At this stage, we want a challenging, persistent hardcore survival mod, that should keep you busy by just trying to stay alive. Loot economy and the survival system should go hand in hand so players can scavenge for whatever they currently need. The loot economy will spawn loot where it makes sense and so the player is forced to search for specific areas/buildings for certain types of loot (military areas, medical facilities, supermarkets,...). For every danger, there should be a potential solution and the player has to adjust his survival strategy to these dangers (getting into a fight without medical supplies - bad idea.). "The Living" is the VA life and survival simulation system, I am looking forward to put a lot of time and effort into that simulation. This rework of the mod should push this feature as a priority. It is a large topic but it will include: health, hunger/thirst, body temperature, injury system, illness, Z-Infection, sanity system and possibly more. The priority might change and some of the features might be pushed to a later phase. Phase 2: Base-building, crafting, resources scavenging and refining, tools, workstations A large topic as well. In essence, VA will introduce a resource gathering, refining and crafting/building system. Resources will be available from various sources and should lead the player to hunt for different objects, terrain objects and items spread over a map. Raw resources can be refined by using tools or workstations (e.g. workbenches). Blueprints (that spawn in the world) will likely be the source for player to learn new refining, building and crafting pattern. Phase 3: AI spawners, uniform side restriction fix, persistent vehicle spawner The AI needs to be reworked from scratch. Different types of AI/AI behaviour will be added, from stalkers hunting the player to patrols to scavenger, minding their own business. A vehicle spawn feature will include persistently spawned and saved (to the server) vehicles with repair, maintenance and fuel features. This is a completely new feature and currently just an idea. Phase 4: Site spawners, farming, hunting Review of the sites, optimisations and addition of new type of sites This is far away and while the sites will certainly be reintroduced, anything past phase 2is very likely subject to a lot of change. Live version on Steam: The rework of the mod will be done on a WIP branch of the mod and will not affect the Steam version. I will not push any live updates in that time but will provide hot-fixes to game-breaking issues. Uff, I would have many more details and ideas to share but this post already escalated quite a bit so we stop here. Join discord if you want to know more! https://discord.gg/SAFysz8 Cheers VD

    v2.28 - Basebuilding: enable option added - Basebuilding: enable Key activation (press T to open and close basebuilding menue). If disabled, basebuilding menue will open on Inventory close - HUD by The Dude added - hunger/thirst reset at respawn/restart fixed - various smaller fixes
  13. Thank you. I have tried everything described there also before (to my best knowledge), below version should include all the suggestions from the feedback ticket and the documentation. The mission EH "load" is working. However, my displayeventhandler still gets duplicated on SP restart, at SP restart, VA_keydown_ID gets assigned the next ID (0,1,2,...). now the keydown EH ID 0 and 1 are fired at keydown. I believe that my issue is that I do not understand how the displayeventhandler gets saved, I do not understand why the previous displayeventhandler persists through the SP restart. Is it because I finddisplay 46 remains true in that case (SP restart) and the displayeventhandler is saved to display # 46? how would I reset that? EDIT: this does not happen in MP btw - no duplication. Cheers VD
