    Damage Handling (ACE)

    I'm tinkering around with an ACE-friendly version of Blackout's CQB Shoot-house , but I have no clue how to actually keep the player from dying and wake them instantly upon being downed. Long story short, it's an SP scenario (no teammates), you go in, if you are about to take fatal damage, you instantly get healed up (via the below script) and the round resets. // Get old and new Player damage _current_damage = damage player; _new_damage = _current_damage + _reduced_damage_taken; // Update player damage if(_new_damage > _current_damage and _current_damage < 1) then { if(_new_damage >= 1) then { // Going to die, trigger game over player allowDamage false; null = ["Mission failed! You were killed"] execVM "scripts\end_round.sqf"; } else { // Apply damage to player... }; }; end_round.sqf calls "ace_medical_treatment_fnc_fullHealLocal" to restore the player's health fully and remove all wounds. However, there are still 3 problems: There are times where the player still gets insta-killed despite the script supposedly checking for fatal damage. The player can sometimes go unconscious. Even though he wakes up soon after getting healed up, I'd rather not have those 2-3 seconds of a black screen. Even on the mission setting that disables all damage, you can still be inflicted wounds. Is there a work-around for these problems?

    >OMA >Krogar >Siege-A It's almost like a holy trinity where everything looks nice so long all three appear in the credits section of a render

    Veteran mod (VTN) - announcement and WIP

    Let him work at his own pace man, if he feels like it's ready then it's ready. You can still play other scenarios, other mods, other maps in the meantime.

    USP Gear & Uniforms

    Dammit, I can't believe I never knew of that functionality until now. Yes it works fine and it is readable.

    USP Gear & Uniforms

    I had asked previously and I understand that the pbos are all locked to protect your work. However, in that case, may I request just a list of the classes with their inheriting classes (e.g. a config.cpp on github or something)? This is so that in case my group (or any other for that matter) can easily make private config replacement that only hides what my group does not need or changes armour/storage values, etc, etc. Cheers!

    ARMA 3 Addon Request Thread

    The plate carriers in COS are only available in OD btw and some of the pouches do not have loaded textures. I think most guys running some kind of COS have their own private retextures.

    Gear is probably COS by Sakuraba, with shirts being Project BJC.
  9. According to the ACE medical guide, this is the recommended loadout for soldiers: However, the current conversion of an FAK to medical items gives us something like this: Will there be plans to change the current FAK conversion to contain the items in the former list (and include a splint)?

    Russian Helmets Project

    Wow, even the modern SpN helmets?
  11. - taken from CUP Terrains - Maps 2.0 So the new release only contains Chernarus 2020? If I want to use the existing maps I would still have to subscribe to CUP Terrains - Maps wouldn't I? Will this map pack be updated to contain the other maps too?

    It's nice that the AI know to hide from vehicles, but it would be better if they didn't override the orders of the squad leader/Zeus. I once ordered my 2IC with the SMAW to target a BMP-2 and he flat out ignored my orders.
  13. Hi, I've been looking through the Soldier Protection , Damage Description and CfgAmmo documentation, as I am trying to make ammo stats. However, I still do not understand how the armour system works for infantry (I only just realised that the latter guide mainly focuses on vehicle armour). From what I gather, "armor" is just health points, and the "armor" on the vest just slaps extra health points on that body part? In that case, is there still any penetration mechanic for body armour? If it is just extra health, wouldn't only the "hit" value of the ammo matter? However I also noticed that the "caliber" values still affects the number of shots it takes to kill, but doesn't it just mean rounds can pass through the player? Could someone with some understanding of the damage/armour system for infantry explain how "armor", "passThrough", "hit" and "caliber" tie in? And on that note, does anyone know where muzzle velocity is defined in the weapon class? Cheers, Some really confused chap in Notepad++

    Ragdoll Physics Plus+ v1.0

    I assume the vehicle collision is no longer a part of this mod? Darn shame, so now if they fall they'll clip through vehicles? I understand why you'd disable it though, seems like the effects in multiplayer must have been really nasty.
