  1. Depends on what it is exactly you're trying to do.  Which mission are you playing or are you making one?  If you're making one what exactly do you have in mind for the AI to do?  Is the AI going to be a jtac for a player or for other AI?  Do they need to actually lase the target or is it good enough that a laser is on the target and the AI is looking at that same target?  Is the target stationary or moving?  Is it a building, a vehicle, a group of infantry, ...?

  2. This is what I used for a while, could probably be written better:

    serverPerfHint = {
            params ["_type"];
            private _firstPart = format ["PERFORMANCE (%1): %2 players, %3 AI units,", _type, count allPlayers, count allUnits - count allPlayers];
            private _code = {
                params ["_unit", "_firstPart"];
                private _secondPart = format [' Server FPS: (%1/%2 Min/Avg)', diag_fpsMin, diag_fps];
                private _hintText = _firstPart + _secondPart;
                [_hintText] remoteExec ["hint", _unit];
            if (_type == "server") then {
                [[player, _firstPart], _code] remoteExec ["spawn", 2];
            if (_type == "headless cleint") then {
                if (isNil "HC1") then {
                    hint "Headless client is not connected";
                } else {
                    [[player, _firstPart], _code] remoteExec ["spawn", HC1];
        //Call via:
        ['headless cleint'] spawn serverPerfHint;
        ['server'] spawn serverPerfHint;



  3. You have a mod installed on your server that has a dependency on a vanilla module that doesn't actually exist.  Verify the integrity of your server's files to be sure but I'm pretty sure there just something wrong with the mod you're using.

    Do you need to man the radar and SAM system with your AI for it to work? or does accessing it via UAV then selecting automatic suffice? 

    Technically only the launcher should work.  It'll work rather poorly because it has no datalink to acquire targets but it should work

    Next to the Sam system does the ammo truck need to be manned with an AI to keep the Sam system loaded?

    I've personally never seen it make a difference whether or not the ammo truck was manned.  I don't think it's required.  In my experience the AI of the launcher isn't going to keep the launcher fully loaded, you'll need to do that manually or through script.

    Are they hacked much in game play? how are they hacked? how to you stop it?

    Unless you put someone down on the opposite team that is a UAV hacker it's impossible.  I've never really seen UAV hackers in multiplayer so I don' t have much experience with it.

    It seems that the radar will pick up planes within 16km, is that the range of the missiles too?

    Missiles can shoot further iirc

    Regarding range, is each grid square 1km on the map?

    Radar placement - Is it better is be in the open, or can I place it between buildings or trees?

    Terrain will definitely block the radar, I've never tested if objects do.

    Radar dome (active radar) - I take it, it needs to face the best direction to pick up planes. Is that done via UAV? Does an AI person in the radar move it automatically?

    Yes it needs to face in the right direction, it is a UAV and if the AI in the UAV picks up a target they'll center the radar coverage on said target iirc.

    Passive radar - Is that still used to target aircraft? 

    Passive radar cannot be used by SAM systems to engage enemy aircraft iirc

    Are radars lit up on planes radars? And thus easy to destroy?

    Yes and if you have a (h)arm yes.

    Apart from the Sam System, does the radar help any other element for your team? Like provide vehicle placement on the map? or help the the mobile AA tanks locate aircraft? 

    The radar will (if configured to do so) send the data it collects out via datalink.  Any datalink enabled vehicle will receive this data. 

  5. You can disable any DLC through steam if that's what you mean.  In your steam library it should say "manage my x DLC" on the right somewhere, that's how to manage them.


    Or do you mean mods that you installed?  If so, how did you install them?  Just through steam?  Then you can disable them in the launcher.
