    Mods For Server Side Only

    Thank-you for taking the time to reply.
  2. Hi All, Don't know if I'm sounding thick but I'm trying to get my head around the server side only part of mission making. I want to add different weapons and vehicles/aircraft to a mission as I get a little fed up with vanilla, however I do not want it that players on the mission have to download a load of mods in order to play it. Probably asking a lot but what is the exact procedure to take a weapons mod for example and get it to work on a server run by Tadst and that the players do not need to download the mod to play. To me it sounds like I'm asking a lot so many many thanks in advance if someone could reply in a simplified way.

    Helicopter To Wait For All Players

    Yep I see how that works and Ive tried in and works fine, I actually watched pierremgi video on the same subject and all good. However, I would like it to count the players on the server. E.G. There are 4 Blufor players, individual players and not linked to a group that need to get the heli before it takes off. So the code would match the amount of Blufor players on the server to the amount in the heli and when the numbers match it takes off.

    Helicopter To Wait For All Players

    Ohhh, thank-you, will give that a go right away,,,,thanks
  5. Hi All, My scenario is that when players enter a trigger a helicopter is called and lands to pick up players and then flies off the end trigger, job done, tea and medals. The landing right now is set to a timer but I want to be able to have the helicopter wait for all players on the server to board. I'm a bit of a beginner when it comes to coding but I figured that it must have something to do with the cargo of the helicopter connected to the amount of people of the mission but how to put that together in a code is beyond me. Any pointers would be happily received. Also if this is far to easy for you I apologize in advance. Regards GemStar

    Thank-you for your reply .kju Being that I have never used cmd I had hesitance to use it in this case, so I put C:\Program Files (x86)\Mikero\DePboTools\bin into system - advanced system settings - environment variables - path -------------that seemed to clear the latest error I was having,,,moving on to the next lol. Thanks again.

    Hi All, after getting a load of help from the guys on Discord they can't help me on this one, I need a lot of help as I'm a noob. I'm having the exact same error on 2 maps when trying to use pboproject. Yes I've installed rapify and it knows I have as it finds it, in fact deleted and re-installed it. Updated pboproject too. I know this has come up before as I had a look but there wasn't a real answer to it and the explanation to cure from the original thread creator I didn't understand. So Any Idea's "</texheaders>" 'rapify' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. "twins.pbo not produced due to error(s)"

    Hi thanks for reply, It's broken, oh dear that's 2 days I will never get back lol.

    Hi All, I know this thread is somewhat old being 3 1/2 years old but I wondered if anyone could tell me what's wrong with my config.cpp file. It packs with addon builder fine each time but I get a series of crashes when loading the game with the my map mod, my first time btw so still very much learning on an incredibly steep curve. My latest crash message goes like this "File testisland\config.cpp, line 124: ' ,cfgClutter': ',' encountered instead of '=' The one before that was "File testisland\config.cpp, line 124: 'CfgWorlds.cfgClutter': '.' encountered instead of '=' I'm using the config that was given out above in the thread. After overcoming all sorts of brick walls and learning around them I feel I'm close to an end result. The end result will be a simple island and I hope to progress from there. All help humbly received. #define _ARMA_ //Class config.bin{ class CfgPatches { class testisland { units[] = {"testisland"}; weapons[] = {}; requiredVersion = 1.0; version = "30/07/2011"; fileName = "testisland.pbo"; author = "GemStar"; }; }; class CfgWorlds { class CAWorld; class Stratis: CAWorld { class Grid; class DefaultClutter; }; class testisland: Stratis { cutscenes[] = {}; description = "jerrys testisland"; worldName = "testisland.wrp"; startTime = "11:00"; startDate = "05/03/2001"; startWeather = 0.2; startFog = 0.0; forecastWeather = 0.6; forecastFog = 0.0; centerPosition[] = {2560,2560,500}; seagullPos[] = {2560,2560,500}; longitude = 65; latitude = -34; elevationOffset = 2000; envTexture = "testisland\data\testisland_env_land_co.paa"; minTreesInForestSquare = 2; minRocksInRockSquare = 2; //newRoadsShape = ""; ilsPosition[] = {1024,1024}; ilsDirection[] = {0.5075,0.08,-0.8616}; ilsTaxiIn[] = {}; ilsTaxiOff[] = {}; drawTaxiway = 0; class SecondaryAirports {}; class Sea { seaTexture = "testisland\data\seatexture_co.paa"; seaMaterial = "#water"; shoreMaterial = "#shore"; shoreFoamMaterial = "#shorefoam"; shoreWetMaterial = "#shorewet"; WaterMapScale = 20; WaterGrid = 50; MaxTide = 0; MaxWave = 0; SeaWaveXScale = "2.0/50"; SeaWaveZScale = "1.0/50"; SeaWaveHScale = 2.0; SeaWaveXDuration = 5000; SeaWaveZDuration = 10000; }; /* class OutsideTerrain { satellite = "jsp\abc_sample\Data\s_satout_co.paa"; enableTerrainSynth = 1; class Layers { class Layer0 { nopx = "jsp\abc_sample\data\abc_sample_grass_green_nopx.paa"; texture = "jsp\abc_sample\data\abc_sample_grass_green_co.paa"; }; }; }; */ class Grid: Grid { offsetX = 0; offsetY = 5120; class Zoom1 { zoomMax = 0.15; format = "XY"; formatX = "000"; formatY = "000"; stepX = 100; stepY = -100; }; class Zoom2 { zoomMax = 0.85; format = "XY"; formatX = "00"; formatY = "00"; stepX = 1000; stepY = -1000; }; class Zoom3 { zoomMax = 1e+030.0; format = "XY"; formatX = "0"; formatY = "0"; stepX = 10000; stepY = -10000; }; }; #include "cfgClutter.hpp" class Names { #include "testisland.hpp" }; }; }; class CfgWorldList { class testisland{}; }; class CfgMissions { class Cutscenes { }; }; #include "cfgSurfaces.hpp" cfgClutter.hpp class Clutter { class testisland_grass: DefaultClutter { model = "testisland_grass_co.paa"; affectedByWind = 0.6; swLighting = "true"; scaleMin = 0.7; scaleMax = 1.0; }; class testisland_dry_grass: DefaultClutter { model = "gdt_dry_grass_co.paa"; affectedByWind = 0.6; swLighting = "true"; scaleMin = 0.7; scaleMax = 1.0; }; class testisland_beach_sand: DefaultClutter { model = "sand_detail_co.paa"; affectedByWind = 0.6; swLighting = "true"; scaleMin = 0.7; scaleMax = 1.0; }; }; cfgSurfaces.hpp class CfgSurfaces { class Default {}; class testisland_grass_Surface : Default { files = "testisland_grass_*"; rough = 0.1; dust = 0.05; soundEnviron = "grass"; character = "testisland_grass_Character"; soundHit = "soft_ground"; }; class testisland_beach_sand_Surface : Default { files = "testisland_beach_sand_*"; rough = 0.1; dust = 0.05; soundEnviron = "sand"; character = "testisland_beach_sand_Character"; soundHit = "soft_ground"; }; }; class CfgSurfaceCharacters { class testisland_grass_Character { probability[]={0.5,0.5}; names[]={"testisland_grass_co.paa","gdt_dry_grass_co.paa"}; }; class testisland_beach_sand_Character { probability[]={0.05}; names[]={"sand_detail_co.paa"}; }; };

    Spawned AI's to Board Aircraft

    Not sure what you mean by referencing to AI's to start with and the rest of the replies were a little over my head. I think I should try and make myself a little more understood. So, I know what to do with normal AI's, so that aside.......... Say, we have an AI spawn position, when those AI's spawn they do nothing other than shoot back when shot at and their position is set by the spawns attributes. Now let say we want these spawned AI's to get into a vehicle or aircraft or engage the enemy at a certain position, how do you command them? Bear in mind that the commands are set at the start of a mission, part of the mission set up and not by Zeus or in game by a player, commands that would be set up into attributes of the spawn module itself, just for that module and or just for the units spawned on that module. Funny, its clear as a bell in my head but more difficult to explain it.
  11. Hi Guys, Looking for help in giving orders to spawned AI's. I know how to command AI's that don't spawn but not spawned ones. I want the AI's that spawn to get into a certain aircraft or move to a certain area, guard, attack etc. Is there a list of Spawning AI commands that goes into the init section of the spawn point attributes? Thanks in advance.
