    ArmA 3: Dunes

    Oh, so you aren't even getting that error in the actual game? It's just setting a variable, there is nothing fancy to it. My first guess would be that the 3den mod is causing this, but that would be really weird, as - like said - you are just setting a variable. Do you get the same error if you type in "lxDunes_DisableDust = 1;" ? Or hell "justAtest = true;" ?

    I just tried it. First trigger: hint "activate"; 0 = [] spawn { [0.1, 0, [player]] call lxDunes_fnc_showDust; }; Second trigger: hint "deactivate"; lxDunes_DisableDust = true; Both are working as they should.

    You just have to set lxDunes_DisableDust to any value. As example: lxDunes_DisableDust = true; This way the effect will run out and won't be renewed. If you want to restart the effect, you will first have to do lxDunes_DisableDust = nil; and then run the function again.

    Nah. That just means I would have to support two addons with all future updates. The missions are small and easily ignored, imo.
  5. Well, it won't come true no matter how much you say it.

    Run Through The Jungle

    Cool. I'd totally play that. PS: If you shift around some extra scenery and remove the trees, it might as well be a completely different location. Most of the time, Dunes look very similar, so players might not even realize it's actually the same place.

    Out of curiosity, is the intro skippable? Having to sit through an over a minute long intro all the time sounds a bit painful.
  8. { _x enableSimulation true; _x hideObject false; } forEach (getMissionLayerEntities "MyCustomLayer" select 0); ?

    ArmA 3: Dunes

    I've increased the detection range with todays update. You need to manually detect the targets, just flying around won't do it. Also the range is not just in 2D space, but 3D - that's why flying too high means you can get out of range as well (now with the increased range that should be way less happen, though). In any case, if you are out of range, a dialog message triggers (with a ~15 seconds timeout). If no message gets triggered, it means something is blocking the view. Either the dust or something else, or it's just Arma being Arma. Generally I'm a bit puzzled about how many players are reporting issues with that part. Personally I never get detected no matter what I do, I'm always hitting all targets, in fact, I'm done with this whole part in maybe less than 3 or 4 minutes at max. I honestly thought it would be waaaay too easy when working on it. That's why it never even occurred to me that this could be problematic for anyone. Did multiple other tweaks and fixes as well. E.g. the missions shouldn't conflict with sound mods anymore, also the "search camp" task got a couple new triggers to make it more obvious that there is more to search.

    Updating the task description should help, I guess. I'll try to address this in the next patch. Not sure when it's ready though. Likely not today anymore, so I guess at latest next weekend.

    If anyone has a suggestion about how to make it more obvious, I'm all ears. @jonstyle This is classic arma 3. Sadly there is nothing we can do about it. 😕

    So I'm getting flooded with "bigger map!!11" requests. Is this enough sand? This is very wip - just a first test. No idea when I can release it.

    @corporal_lib[br] I probably won't upload it anywhere anytime soon, because I hate the hassle of updating external files (and I love pushing small updates on my stuff every once in a while). I don't mind if anyone downloads it in other ways, though. Hell I don't even mind reuploads, but you always have to keep in mind that it means the files won't be updated asap. @Callsign If anyone cares, here is my schedule breakdown: Day 1: Map Day 2: Map / Mission 1 basics Day 3: Mission 1 dialog / Mission 2 basics Day 4: Mission 2 dialog / Implementing all dialog into the game Day 5: Dialog polishing / Bugfixing / VO inquiry Day 6: Bugfixing, playtesting, bugfixing, gameplay tweaks, polishing, bugfixing, god damnit, this godforsaken gunship is so buggy, etc. Day 7: Dialog polishing, icons, ui, sfx, videos, etc. some quality of life improvements, project completion with a very close call. Day 8 and ongoing: Waiting for VO 😞 All in all this was very stressful with about 6 hours of sleep per day and 1 hour of food + random tv show to relax. Still it was great fun because of the limitations you have to set for yourself. There is no time for much thinking, you just start working and push through. You also quickly end up with something that might be worth releasing, which is the biggest motivation booster (well, at least for me). Probably not going to do another 7 days challenge anytime soon, but I do feel inclined to try a "make a mission in one weekend"-thing, like I did back when Apex was released.
  14. You probably have to switch the commander / driver seats. Best solution is to just have the driver be in his own group, this way the vehicle commander can't intervene in the setDriveOnPath orders.
