    How do I command the AI in Superpowers?

    Sadly I have the same problems and haven't been able to find the answers either. I think they "broke" warfare from A1
  2. I get what you want, but I don't think it's possible after all. Maybe BlackAlpha will weigh in here, he seems to understand the module pretty well. Sorry I wasn't more help
  3. I think I misunderstood what it was you were doing when I read this yesterday. I think once the mission starts you can't change the parameters, but then I haven't tried to change them on the fly. Perhaps you can set the minimum distance to a large enough value and use the _secOpSpacing parameter to give you time to move back near your base. I don't really know what the objective of your mission is but I think that would work. example: start at forward base get secops mission x meters from fb complete secops mission go back to fb after x minutes another secops mission is generated x meters from fb If you are roaming from your fb, then you complicate things because there is always the chance it will spawn the mission close to your fb, and if you set the minimum distance to a very large value you spend a lot of time running around.
  4. see this post in THIS thread, top of page.

    Deeds and I would enjoy playing this mission, but: "Arma2 has encountered a problem and needs to close" every 5 minutes or less. Here is my rpt. We have tried with addons and without, multiple saves and reverts, twice restarted and just can't take it any more. I really hope this gets fixed because we do enjoy this when it works. ===================================================================== == E:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2.exe ==

    ArmA 2's Artillery Module

    the only problem I found was that you cannot fire near your location. It is inside the minimum range of the battery. When you call the arty and they tell you to "input coordinates", did you notice the red circle on the map? The red circle is the minimum range. I moved the battery far away and it fired as expected. Be careful using the MLRS, it has a very long max range and a very long min range. If you want to use the MLRS, simply move it farther away from your intended target zone. You may not able to use the MLRS at all on UTES. If the precise placement of the battery is required for your mission, and you don't want it too far away, change the weapons to the cannons or even mortars. Just pay attention to the min/max range circles on the map after you call for the strike. Hope this helps

    ArmA 2's Artillery Module

    not sure I understand your problem, but it sounds like you a) either didn't name something correctly or b) didn't synch the arty module to the leader of the artillery. Could you post your mission so we can help troubleshoot it for you?
  8. Anyone have a working link to a ski script for ArmA2? I have been searching for days. I had a good one for OFP years back but not any more............

    ArmA (OFP) Script Editor

    I absolutely love this tool, and couldn't get by without it. There is one feature I could use though, a wildcard find/replace. I can find all entries like loon1, loon2,loon3 etc but a feature like find loon* which would find all entries that start with loon would be SO handy for multiple find/replaces
  10. you can determine where the unit is looking withweapondirection. If you need to determine what the weapon is, use weapons like this: player sidechat format ["weapons are %1", weapons player] and determine where it is pointed with player sidechat format ["weapon is pointed %1 %2 %3",weapondirection "weapon class" select 0, weapondirection "weapon class" select 1,weapondirection "weapon class" select 2 . You will need the script commands described in the weapondirection entry to convert the numbers to a compass direction. I WISH I could tell you how to determine the degrees up or down the weapon is pointed, but I can't figure that out. As far as making a unit look a certain way, for AI try dotarget or dowatch but near as I can tell you can't force a player. If it were possible it would solve about 42 problem I am having with a script I am writing/fighting. Hope this helps

    love this update, but I have having an issue. If I use any of the road pieces or rail pieces, they always conform to the ground under them. No amount of setpos or attachto seems to change this. Has anyone figured out a way to manipulate these objects in the verticle? I am afraid there is some hardcode that forces them to the ground
  12. Fair enough, here is a mission with usage of the script. This is not the mission the final version of the concept will be used in. To call the action, look at the satellite dish and you should get the launch action. I challenge you to land in the same place twice. Experiment with your weapon aim, as well as the place/direction you are looking while flying. I can always land on the same "line" but the distance is always different. launcher test
  13. I learned something. getdir and weapondirection return 2 different values. It seems the weapon points slightly to the right, even in ironsights. Was able to mod my script to account for that. Weapondirection even returns weapon pitch but I haven't found a way to "force" a value for it like I can for getdir/setdir.
  14. I can use weapondirection for troubleshooting. Since this script is called from an addaction I think it matters where you are looking when you call the action. Thanks for the input Celery, gave me something to work with. I really need to read ALL the comref, no telling what I will find there! :p
  15. getdir and setdir work with facing but is there a way to determine where a unit is aiming vertically? It seems getdir determines where you are looking, not where your feet are pointed; I can work with that. what I need to determine is where up or down a unit is looking and "force" a point there. dotarget doesn't seem to do it for players. Does getdir and setdir have a z component or are they only 2d? I believe they only get and force a certain azimuth (2d). What I am working with is this: _speed = [(_factor*(sin getDir _flyer))+(velocity _flyer select 0),(_factor*(cos getDir _flyer))+(velocity _flyer select 1),(velocity _flyer select 2)+.5]; _flyer SetVelocity _speed which all works well but playtesting has determined that where a player is looking has an effect on the _speed variable. I can use setdir to take out some of the variability but looking up or down also changes where _flyer goes. Unless there are random air currents and viscositys that make _flyer go differently every time!
