    NR6 PACK - HAL Artificial Leader Evolved

    You mean the module? Sync reinforcement module to "asset compiler" module, and sync the SLs of the groups you want to spawn to asset compiler. It works the same way with "Site" and "Spawn Forces" modules. And thanks to Ninjarider's fantastic work, asset compiler saves custom loadouts too!

    Were there added bridge building vehicles/tanks in the latest update? If so, where to find them?
  3. And giving a magical dose of epi to revive anyone from anything instantly wasn't an immersion kill?
  4. Loving the new medical system! The ones who hate it aren't maybe the target audience for ACE as per terms of realism.. Keep up the good work lads.

    Virolahti - Valtatie 7

    Sorry mate, don't get me wrong, I'm in no place to disrespect other people's modeling work of course! I do use those vests myself, I was just talking in comparison to the Finmod vests that used to be a part of SFP FFP, but got removed for whatever reason. SFP Terrains, if permitted, would have a lot of stuff like road signs etc that'd be a very nice addition to the map with re-texturing, definitely!
  6. Any ETA on the next update? Apparently it'll have full textures.

    Virolahti - Valtatie 7

    This is just unbelievable! I’m loving it! Wish we’d have a quality Finnish forces mod to go along with it. SFP’s mod had Finmod’s vests, but they got removed for some reason and the vests now are just horrible.

    We'll never forget. The pics look so awesome, can't wait! Hoping to see a winter uniform (lumipuku) for winter scenarios too.

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Excellent job mate! Looking forward for the update. With pool complier and as this got fixed, it’s got all a man can ask for. (Although reinforcement module was already easy to setup, artillery isn’t) Played with the mod for 6 hours and it’s a very powerful tool to create scenarios with and the Ai seems really wise. Especially loving your reinforcement module, it enables longer battles without performance loss. (Meaning you’d have to place a looot of troops without respawn system.) The reinforcement module is used to respawn destroyed aircrafts right? So to get the CAS etc going just simply place any plane, modded or not, and sync to Include squads? The ammo drop does sound cool, but that’s probs vanilla ammo and hard to configure.

    Another question: planes. Does the mod have anything to do with them, should they be synced or..?

    I've been playing for the past few hours and it actually this time has worked with withdraw set to 0. The helicopter it didn't work with before was UH-1 slick and Chinook of the USMC faction, UNSUNG, with Unsung USMC squads onboard.

    Good thing that the problem was located! I just did a test with vanilla and 60 as cycle, and it worked fine. Is there any work around to this for the time being?
  13. Jimi Markkanen

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    I had cycle rotation set to 60 instead of default 150. I reckon when you get that information about morale etc to bottom-left, that's when a cycle comes? Well at that very moment three choppers on air did a 180 and RTB. Gonna' run more tests with the default settings, I tried something and therefore left it at 60, but should it be an issue anyways for the transports? I feel like this would've happened anyways as the choppers tend to take off even though they're next to the squads, land, get the squads in and fly the 10kms. E: As in, the 150s is not enough time for that is it. Well at very first time I did have success with vanilla assets.

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Did not notice anything like that from the commander debug (Should've I noticed?), but just turned the withdraw coefficiency to 0, and they seemed to be flying normally, but just like 1-3km away from the objective turned away, other squad turned away as before. I tried with different helicopter models aswell.

    Just had the same thing happen to me with a CAP mission.. Must be something on my end, they did go all the way initially with the vanilla NATO forces and NATO helicopter, but it does pick 'em up normally with the UNSUNG one, so I can't put my head around why would they return after flying towards the objective.. O_o

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Okay, very very very useful information, thanks once again! Atm I got a very simple set up, and the Chinook does pick up one of the two squads for a Recon objective 10km away BUT they fly 1km and then RTB, whilst the group is still assigned to the recon mission..

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Should helicopters/infantry from any mod work with the cargo system? It seemed to work with the vanilla NATO forces but with Unsung I get the commander giving recon orders even though chance of that should be 0% (skip recon and fast capture 100), I think with recon orders they would not use air assets at least so was stated in the HETMAN manual. Seems very inconsistent how the transport functions. Sometimes it works almost fine though, I'll meddle with it more but I just wanted to get a confirmation if it's even supposed to work with mods.
  18. Jimi Markkanen

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Beta 5 as the cargo option? But anyways, I figured it out quite fast from your sample mission. You had the Commander Behaviour module placed down which determines the cargo find range, so as I had none it didn't work. I presumed that in the absence of a module they'll just have the default values, but that wasn't the case. Works like a charm now! Thanks for you help again 🙂

    Okay got the reinforcements working and I seem to understand how the cargo system SHOULD work, but apparently it might be broken. I had a vanilla NATO Chinook with crew inside synced to the "Include squads" module and to the "Transport only" module. I had few squads next to it and a commander giving CAP missions to 10km away. Commander support module was set accordingly. It gives a script error about RydHQ_CargoFind, (which I manually tried to set as = 1 in an init field but didn't work) and the squads stay still. Also played around with the Air Reinforcement module, but that might be about something different. The idea was basically to have a Vietnam type troop insertion with choppers from the base.

    That sounds just perfect. Thanks for letting me know about the demo mission, I'll look into that!

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Thanks for your answers. I've made a lot of missions, but usually just by ALiVE, I've got no clue where to find the classnames for the ammo artillery uses etc. Probably somewhere in the configs, maybe I'll get to that later. If that process could be narrowed down to basically just syncing stuff together, that would make it a lot better and more comfortable. Same goes for the reinforcements. If it's even possible. But apparently that's already on your to-do list so yey 😄 Just been having a blast with this, just not getting the full capability out of it at the moment due to my lack of knowledge on that stuff discussed earlier. Really appreciate it, cheers mate.

    More questions, yey! (Sorry) What's the purpose of rally points, commander fronts and how to use them? And also, does the position of the commander module (or if synced to a unit, the unit's position) define the HQ's position? I have a "Set as HQ guard" module synced to the commander and to a squad lead, but they still receive like recon tasks etc and no one's left for the HQ. Commander module is linked to a unit, the unit doesn't do anything though and killing it does nothing. There is some error message when starting about "AddLeader" if I remember correctly. E: Also, could you tell a bit about artillery and the transportation system? Artillery, just sync the units to the include squads module and you're good to go? And transport, should I have truck with drivers in them, and sync them to the transport only module?

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Thank you very much for an in-depth answer! 🙂 Two further questions, unfortunately; 1) I understood that the Squad modules, like "only attack orders", require to be synced ONLY to the squad, not the commander? Got a bit thrown off by the Included Squads module comparison, which in my knowledge needs to be synced to the commander aswell. 2) This maybe more about asking your preference on the matter. E.g, I like the map Tobruk, large open desert areas with trenches on higher ground. Is it in any way possible to make the AI defend these positions, keep their positions and actually maybe go to the trenches? I think the BIS defend module would do that. In my tests, I had three set of trenches, one of the groups actually did automatically man the trenches, but others kinda' roamed around it. I do understand this is an issue on ARMA and the AI mostly, but this questions is just basically me asking you, an expert of this mod of course, on how to set up the Ai to take defensive positions via HAL, if possible, or is it only possible to kinda' have them stand/roam around and they act as accordingly as possible when they encounter an enemy? 3) What's the benefit of having multiple leaders, or has that kinda' stayed from the times when objectives were limited?

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    What a potential it's got! (If I knew how to use it properly). Great work mate! Tested it a few times and it's just awesome, and easy with the modules. Just a few questions which I'm sure to be addressed in the future tutorial videos etc you mentioned... Sorry for the inconvenience, I just want to take full advantage of this beautiful tool. How does High Commander work compared to a normal leader? Can you assign units (an officer f.e) as a leader, or are they abstract? If you want one side to start an objective as their own (captured) and one side to attack it, do you need to place two objectives at the same place with other having the "taken" option ON and other OFF? If it's on ON and you sync both leaders to it, they both consider it taken (a defensive objective), right? Are you supposed to sync Squad modules (like "Only attack orders") to the Include Squads -module or to a squad member? Is there a way to debug the leaders, to kinda' see what's going on? Very much like ALiVE, leaders are only aware of the objectives that have been synced to them, right? If the HC thing works in a way that there's one HC (company/regiment commander) and the leaders are supposed to be like f.e platoon leaders, that's just a wet dream come true honestly.
  25. Snkman, thanks a lot for continuing on your AI improvement project! Just gave it a shot, love the movement once again. Not maybe as aggressive as first TCL versions, but definitely better than in the latest TCL. But for me this version seemed like a good balance of tactical advancement and speed, there's some guys supporting as others' advance and you can really see when the movement scripts kick in. The flare thing for me has been an issue, but I find it great if one squad engages another in pitch black. Apparently each squad fires a flare when engaged in dark (don't know how dark is the limit, in some TCL versions just when the sun was about to go out and you could still see very well they shot the flares anyways), so if you have multiple fire teams the end result looks a bit silly. But it's fantastic if you have just full squad against another.
