  2. Well, here we go: In the follwoing I will explain to you in ten easy steps how you plan an addon, create the model, create the textures, put the textures on the model, how to get a working door in it, how to implement a proper damage simulation, how you get this addon to Arma 2 and how you can release it: Mondkalb's Addon Tutorial. I hope this tutorial will spawn many new addonartists and even more high quality addons to this great Arma2 Community! A .PDF version of this file is already in progress, and currently I am on page 45 and half of the pictures aren't included yet. So expect a 60 page Manual on how to start an Addon from scratch. This is an unoffical tutorial.
  3. @EDIOE We would certainly like to do that. However, at this point it is too early for us to promise anything. @chrys This sounds like some permissions issue on the feedback tracker. I've passed this info on. Thanks.

  5. There is no time constraint. Order your AI to stay in File formation. They will then queue up behind you and take the exact route that you are driving. This way they will easily follow you across bridges.
  6. Heya, this issue was already known before GM released and was addressed the same day it was reported to the CUP team. I assume your installation is not using the latest CUP version. You can read up on the initial bug report here:
  7. Heya, the flag property for factions seems to not be used anywhere, as that path is incorrect. (Icon does get used.) The flags can be found here: Countries are named after the two-letter nato code from the 80s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NATO_country_codes GC = East Germany GE = West Germany Full list: "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_us_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_au_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_be_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_bu_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_ca_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_cs_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_cz_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_dk_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_fi_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_fr_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_gc_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_ge_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_gr_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_hu_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_ic_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_it_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_lu_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_nato_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_nl_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_no_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_pl_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_po_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_ro_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_se_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_sp_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_tu_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_uk_co.paa" "\gm\gm_core\data\flags\gm_flag_ur_co.paa"

    MBG Aliens Ground Forces

    Heya Haleks, this is already available. _unit addUniform "mbg_uniform_alien_01"; _unit addUniform "mbg_uniform_alien_02"; _unit addUniform "mbg_uniform_alien_03"; _unit addUniform "mbg_alien_hybrid_01"; The units you can place in the editor are actually "naked" models. So by giving those any other uniform they can shape-shift into humans. 😄 Using the code example above you can transform humans into these aliens. Please let me know if this works, otherwise I'll find a solution that fits your parameters. Edit: The classnames are a bit of a mess. This was all a super quick project, sorry. 😄

    MBG Aliens Ground Forces

    Update! Added more aliens! New: - Alien Brute Model - Alien Commander Model - Alien Hybrid Hunter Model
  10. We're waiting for the patch to clear and with it also a resolution for a potential regular distribution of the GM data without having to purchase it, so it is more in line with Apex/Contact's terrain assets (But not identical). Once that is sorted out with BI's help we can go ahead and provide some road map of what we would like to do in the future, specifically regarding free content updates. However, and I cannot stress that enough, we are fully dependent on BI approving each release, which adds uncertainty to our own planning and ability to commit to future plans. During the development we described a possible GM release as Surprise-Blitz-Release. That is a release without any announcement or prior warning. This is currently very likely what will happen with future content.
  11. Plans exist of course. However, as said before (And hence why no messages here from me), is that any future update depends on BI making QA resources available to publish such an update. We're still waiting on processing the first patch with BI's cooperation at this time. Anything else I say will likely be taken out of context and turn into a "But you promised to include X Y Z" in a couple of months. @Blackland I don't feel the need to address every single "Will this be included", "Why no air assets if there is AA guns", "Please add this highly specific item" type of requests when the general information is out there that any update will have to be negotiated with Bohemia who have other higher priority items currently on their agenda. Edit: Just as I am writing this I see maxl30's post that apparently Leo 2 and T-72 are confirmed. That is exactly what I mean. These were never confirmed, only expressed that we'd certainly like to include these at one point.

    MBG Aliens Ground Forces

    No, as stated this project was started just today during the hype and speculation leading up the to reveal of Arma 3 Contact. I thought it would be funny to release Aliens for Arma 3 after the reveal because I did not believe they would do this theme. 😄
  13. Heya, I used https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/setDriveOnPath during the campaign to get all sorts of vehicles across the border in exactly the way I want them.
  14. Drewski's video is a blatant and deliberate misrepresentation of GM just to get clicks. The Devildog video is somewhat fairer, but again a lack of knowledge about the topic and setting is used to paint GM in a bad light. I understand however why these youtubers needs to do this, as their job and career as well income depend on such content. After all "paid mod" is a very easy target. Ultimately I wish them the best and that they develop solid followup careers that do not rely in the future on such misrepresentations.
  15. @maxl30 I have added it to our list of things. It's easy to do so I think there's a good chance for it. 🙂 @LoneGunner1974 The audio is in German, subtitles are available in English and German currently.

    Arma 3 - Creator DLC Discussion

    @a_killer_wombat Very good point! I've added that to the list of things to fix. Thanks!

    Problem with the campaign

    Hello, do you see the campaign in the full overview? Click on "Singleplayer" in the main menu, then navigate to the "Campaigns" entry. A new page appears that shows a full overview like this. If "State Scarlet" is not listed there, then GM is not activated. You can activate it via the Arma 3 launcher's DLC tab.

    MP missions on dedicated server

    Just add gm; to your -mod= list for the server startup.
  19. Hello. - The campaign issue is already known and logged on our internal trigger. - You're not meant to fire the ATGM at full speed. 😄 - Dedicated Server repository seems to be locked for some reason. It is being looked at already.
  20. Hello CUP team, please investigate your class tank_f inheritance. Loading CUP Vehicles and its required dependencies removes parameters from class "tank_f" >> "sounds" >> "engine". Likely some class forward-reference without proper load-order does this by accident. The .rpt is sadly a bit unhelpful: Updating base class Sounds->, by CUP\TrackedVehicles\CUP_TrackedVehicles_T34\config.bin/CfgVehicles/Tank_F/Sounds/ (original CUP\TrackedVehicles\CUP_TrackedVehicles_T34\config.bin) It is not specific to the T-34. That T-34 addon simply happens to be the first in the load-order that touches on Tank_F after some other addon accidentally changed its parent. I wasn't able to locate which addon within CUP does this. The config path "CfgVehicles" >> "Tank_F" >> "Sounds" >> "Engine" is a completely empty class when starting Arma 3 like this: "-mod=G:\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop\@CBA_A3;G:\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop\@CUP Weapons;G:\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop\@CUP Units;G:\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop\@CUP Vehicles" Starting without any mods keeps that class's content intact. Starting with just @CBA_A3 also keeps that class in tact. Obviously messing with such high level base classes is not a good idea. 🙂 EDIT: As requested, ticket created: https://dev.cup-arma3.org/T3275
  21. Quick update from us. We have released the texture templates for all our vehicles, along with documentation on how to use it and their advanced functions. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Global_Mobilization_Insignia_(Vehicles) https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Global_Mobilization_Retexturing
  22. mondkalb


    Don't worry! We'll release some more details about the re-texturing of GM content this weekend. You can already read up on how to make use of our insignia system and adding your own here. I can say already that some example re textures for GM to AAF are prepared and will be available for regular use on the Steam Workshop shortly after the DLC becomes available on the steam store. 👍 Edit: @ghoulishPeach There is a dedicated Discord set up with the topic "Arma Cold Warriors" where a bunch of cold war related projects gather and exchange research knowledge and technical help. I think your project would be a good fit there. Invitation to that discord is of course open to everyone: https://discord.gg/VhdaJu5

    Arma 3 - Creator DLC Discussion

    Heya @stburr91, perhaps I can provide some background information on this that explains it further. GM is at heart a project that GalComT and I always wanted to make, just out of pure personal interest. This particular theme and topic always interested us, and the enitre Arma series is the perfect platform for a game in such setting. As you may remember, the first title in the game's series was in fact set in the Cold War ("Arma - Cold War Assault", released in 2001 as "Operation Flashpoint") and is what got us into this game series. The Arma engine in all its iterations is still in its core a game about vehicle vs. vehicle combat with infantry support on a grander scale, the defining scenario of military action during the Cold War in Europe. Because the engine is so incredibly versatile - it served as the petri-dish for two major game trends in the past decade (Zombie Survival and Battle Royale) - we took it on as the base for our hobby project and set off to convert it into a setting that we were interested in the most. One thing led to another, in fact it heavily shaped both our professional careers, and we landed today in a position where we could partner with Bohemia. This meant pushing our dream project even farther than otherwise possible. The decision to make a Cold War Arma 3 project was purely ours out of personal interest. Once presented to BI they agreed with the potential the project and we offered with it, and enabled us to get to where we are now.
  24. Heya, on the terrain you can expect a new soundset of ambient life, but no new physical creatures.
  25. Thanks everyone! @Dedmen's picture is impressively accurate! @nettrucker Indeed, OFP's CWC was a major influence, so it was pretty special for us to be able to do our own entry in that era and setting. There are a few nods to the original CWC missions in our Campaign. One very obvious you'll see right away in the first mission. 🙂
