  1. Note that Chernarus 2020 is a work in progress and changes and enhancements will come in time
  2. And new tankDLC fire geometries *sigh*
  3. I'm trying to create a task via BIS_fnc_setTask on the server. If another client joins, the task will show up, but no icon is displayed on the map or in 3D (it is shown for all clients that were connected at the time of task creation). Is this a bug in this function ?
  4. No, at one point I gave up and task tracker is still doing it's own distribution of state
  5. Heavy work-in-progres, hopefully in CUP soon
  6. Well, I'll be damned, it is... it wasn't in the changelog, though
  7. Shameless plug: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=582759285 Alwarren and my MP missions using CUP. Some need other addons, but it's noted in the actual mission's dependencies so you can filter those out. Most are for 4-12 players
  8. Since some assets have been moved from Contact DLC to platform, would it be possible to do the same with the spectrum device (non functional) ? While some people think it's in the realm of sci-fi, anti-drone measurements are being developed today, and I could imagine that by 2035, you'd have handheld possibilities to deal with drones.
  9. This is really somewhat off-topic, and it might get deleted, I don't know. But I definitely have to get this off my chest. The subject is people re-uploading existing mods to the workshop. The arrogance that some people display is staggering. I've seen so many times that people re-upload a mod and add a "disclaimer" that whoever is the real author, if they don't want this to be re-uploaded, should tell them. That's NOT how it works. If you are re-uploading someone else's work, YOU HAVE TO ASK before re-uploading, not the other way around. And most of all, if the original Author asks you to take it down, you take it down. No "Why ?" or anything. It's none of your business why.

    AI Discussion (dev branch)

    Or a static weapon like a machine gun. This basically means that AI in static weapons are not affected at all from suppression, which is rather nonsensical
  11. If you are referring to the problem with two-factor authorization. I currently use a .bat file with the following: steamcmd.exe +login "your steam username" "your steam password" +force_install_dir "D:\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 3 [development]" +app_update 107410 -beta development validate +logoff +logout +quit now Not optimal, but at least it allows you to update the dev branch
  12. No, sorry. Hotfix incoming, no ETA. Until then, easiest way is loading maps along with core, or deleting this file. Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk
  13. Hey all, I've decided to release a script that I mainly wrote for my own missions but since I was told that it could be interesting for others, I decided to release it. The script is the FHQ TaskTracker, as the name implies, it's used to handle and maintain mission tasks and briefings. It can automatically keep track of task states, briefing text, dynamically add both tasks and briefings, and distribute them over the network to clients that join in progress. Also supports the use of parented tasks, and is compatible to both ArmA 2 and Arma 3 (it will take care to add the tasks and briefing entries in the correct order as specified) The archive also contains documentation on it's use. New version available: V1.1 - Adds Arma 3 notification support, as well as a demo mission to explain the use of the script in a practical example V2.0 - Complete rewrite. Adds support for JIP into disabled units/respawn V2.1 - Fixed a bug in task creation notifications V2.2 - Fixed a bug in task creation notification (for real this time). Thanks to FortuN for pointing this out. V4.0 - Now supports 1.58 task overhaul, rewritten as a function library, and now directly accessible through an Eden Mod Feedback welcome. Download: FriedenHQ Armaholic withSIX The Eden Editor Plugin can also be directly subscribed on the Steam Workshop A demo mission is also available on the Workshop
  14. Check out the Biki page on addCuratorEditableObjects. Of course, you have to call this function on all units that you create for all curators, for example: private _object = ... createVehicle ...; { _x addCuratorEditableObjects [[_object], true]; } forEach allCurators;
  15. You have to move the hostages to a group of the appropriate side, the units themselves have no real side per se Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk

    AI Driving - Feedback topic

    The latest patch brought it's own share of problems with driving AI. There is a T-Junction at GPS 110 224 on Altis. It used to work, but now, a Marshal APC will not be able to even make that junction, it will approach it and then go into an endless forward-reverse loop. Ticket is here: https://feedback.bistudio.com/T128476 Tested with current stable and dev branch. Screenshot of "AIDriving" enable_diag true; included
  18. Please note: We are aware of problems with CUP and the latest Tank DLC. We are currently working on a hotfix for the most pressing issues. If you find problems with CUP that might be related to the latest Arma patch, please report them on the bug tracker (https://dev.cup-arma3.org/) and make us aware of the ticket in our discord (tag with @member). Please restrict this to only critical bugs that need to go into the hotfix. We will not yet update features, like tank armor, top/direct attack etc. This will come in a separate update down the line. Thank you.

    Re-uploading mods on the workshop

    Speaking for CUP only here, you are allowed to reupload CUP to a private server, like, for example, an Arma3Sync repository. You are not allowed to reupload to the workshop. If you want to make your server's modset available on the workshop, make it a collection, not a mod, and link the required mods into that collection. Problem solved, no re-upload necessary. If something is no longer supported, or the author isn't available, tough luck. If you are lucky, if an author decides to go away, they will say something about the legal state of their mod.

    AI Discussion (dev branch)

    Uhm, you are missing the point. We're not talking about making the AI more sophisticated, just more life-like by adding a random delay to their actions. Like, you remember some time ago, when AI was shooting, they go like "bang bang bang", like a clock. BI added a bit of a random delay before each shot, resulting in a more human sounding. You can apply the same principles to other areas of AI reaction. That's all we're talking about here. So, I don't get why you are talking about performance (this has NO impact on performance whatsoever... well, yeah, in the nanosecond area). Also, even though beside the point, a mechanized group will behave the same, whether they are spawned with a disembark waypoint, or "managed" via the editor. So, I get the impression you don't really get what people were aiming at and just had to write something in defense of Arma just for the sake of it.
  21. Alternatively, adding to what was already said, you can donate your skins to CUP and we'll add them to the mod ;) Or you join and become our local retexture specialist
