  1. Since both Chenarus and Thirsk have been ported to Arma 3; do you think these missions are worth porting as well? Asking for a friend...

    Authority 20 player coop.

    Will this mission include a billionaire manhunt?

    "Dynamic" map display on TV

    On the phone right now, so will just copy and paste some links. Couldn't you adapt this UI to texture script for producing map images: https://github.com/expung3d/A3-LiveMaps https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=3018683365 And then use some UI commands to zoom/color it as you see fit, as in this mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2480263219 ?
  4. Thank you for the recommendation IceBreakr! Easy to see that the author gave a lot of attention to both the visual and gameplay elements. I didn't recognize the music, so it worked well for me. Fun to play as *anything* other than Blufor/PMC/"John Matrix" commandos for a change. Also nice that there's a fun little preview video based on a playthrough with effects. It all helps make this mission stand out. A fun hour with 3 friends that's tense but not frustrating.

    Glowing particles?

    Hi @dupa1, welcome to the forums! So what was your result? Script, or screenshot-wise?
  6. Awkwardly responding to my own post here. If there are other users on Mac who want to unpack PBO files, you can wrap PBO Decryptor (by Amalfi) into a Mac OS executable through Wine. Works well enough for me. Would love to read more elegant alternatives.
  7. Hello everyone. For whatever reason, I am now stuck behind a Mac, and craving to do some Arma modding. Thankfully, BI has updated its Mac port (hurray!). But I cannot unpack PBO files or unbinarise them, because both Mikeros tools, the popular PBO manager, and Arma 3 Tools, are still Windows based. Your project seems a perfect fix, but I am running into an issue. The contents (listing) of PBOs can be seen, and they can be unpacked. But the files themselves are unreadable. That is, media such as .ogg cannot be played, and script files such as .sqm, .sqf, and .ext, are read as random (not binarized with some variable names- random) characters by VS Code and text programs. I have used both your CLI version and the GUI using a WINE wrapper. Same result. Could you, or any users, give me a tip?
  8. Hi there- I believe this is relevant: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2388444766 Here is a link to the GitHub and Discord. All credit to TimidShade: https://github.com/TheTimidShade/Timid-Cloak Note that that vehicle interior textures are not affected, due to the models not having "hidden selections" on these parts.

    Supply Orbital

    Greetings @road to c1! This is not a standard Arma feature. As it says in your video description, use this mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2938391119

    Zeus-placed countdown editing

    Tell me if I am missing something. But couldn't you place a trigger that uses either BIS_fnc_countDown or BIS_fnc_countDownTime==0 in the condition field to check whether it has finished, then execute (execVM) your script in the onActivation field? If you're looking to make your own onscreen countdown timer, then you could modify this script: Happy world environment day 🎊.

    Hello @LesterJJJ, welcome to the forums! I don't know of any mod that does this 1 specific thing. What you are technically asking is a modification of the "Blastcore" mod. You can probably guess this means knowing Arma scripting, and how to create a mod. You will probably also want permission from the author. I can't do all that for you. More realistic is to create a script (or trigger) for your mission, that makes smoke effects whenever a tank blows up from a bm-21 rocket. So you would take (and change) this smoke particle script example: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Particles_Tutorial#Burning_Vehicle_Fire_Look-Alike -That makes smoke appear at a location. And have it activated by this event handler: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3:_Event_Handlers#HitExplosion -So that the special smoke appears only at tanks that are blown up by bm-21 rockets. It's a bit of work, even if you have experience with Arma scripting. But this is easier than reverse-engineering the Blastcore mod, or making a new mod. Try asking specific questions. It's a frustrating but fun process. Good luck!

    Bucket - Zeus Terrain Editing

    I... I will stop. Question: can this mod be run exclusively from the server? Or, is there a way of saving the output of this mod, so that it can be run as a server side script?
  13. @NemanjicYou could check what side the player is on: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/playerSide You could insert example 2 (the switch case) from the above link within this part to select the correct diary script:

    Unloading the boat on the beach

    I have two ideas, depending on specifics. 1) If the boat is AI controlled, and does not 'beach' itself completely: 2) If the boat is driven by unitCapture, or is completely beached/cannot drive: Use addForce (in trigger) to push boat back into the water.
