  1. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release Build #233 I didn't like how intel was a bit rubbish and it was hard to figure out what the virtual AI was actually doing behind the scenes. So I wrote a spec for a more realistic intel overlay and Spyderblack coded it. Once enabled in the C2ISTAR module, Virtual AI units will report the location, activity and type of enemy units they detect on the map. Friendly commanders will indicate their current objectives and units that KIA will be marked to indicate where active combat is taking place. This should provide a much better idea of what is going on and help players determine where to get involved in the action. Players with the Command Tablet can still see the detailed Operational Overlay for AI Commanders. Release Highlights New Feature: Military Map Intel - displays friendly and hostile activity on the map.

  2. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release 1.14.2 SOG Prairie Fire cDLC Iterative Update Various fixes, enhancements and tweaks to maps, modules and missions to support the latest release of the SOG Prairie Fire cDLC, with many fringe benefits to regular ALiVE scenarios. In particular, caves should be populate properly now for all your tunnel rat shenanigans. What We're Working On Whilst ALiVE was originally conceived as a mission making tool, there are a couple of things we'd like to enhance to make ALiVE missions more intuitive to players, in particular exposing some of the background activity so its easier to figure out what to do in an open ended scenario. We'll release these when they're ready™. Full Player Tasks integration with Mil Logistics, ATO and AI Commanders. Rework of the C2ISTAR Intelligence framework Enhancements to Combat Support (Marcel promised) Download from the Steam Workshop Also available on Github and ALiVEmod.com (usually within 24 hours of this post) Get SOG Prairie Fire Compositions here Please note that as with all updates, if you have an issue loading a mission made with a previous version of ALiVE, delete and replace the modules in that mission.

  3. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release 1.14 SOG Prairie Fire cDLC Update To coincide with release of the exciting new Creator DLC: SOG Prairie Fire, this update provides full compatibility for the new Vietnam map, factions and units. We've also included 4 new scenarios, which will be available to play on the SOG Prairie Fire ALiVE public server and also our own official ALiVE public server hosted by Kelly's Heroes. In the meantime we have also made over 300 bug fixes, feature enhancements and refinements. Some of these changes could impact existing missions so as always we strongly recommend deleting and replacing ALiVE modules if you experience odd behaviour. In addition, we have provided a selection of Vietnam-era compositions to complement the new ALiVE missions. ALiVE SOG Prairie Fire Compositions is available as a separate download on the Steam Workshop. The compositions will automatically be used by ALiVE placement modules but can also be used standalone and placed manually in the editor. Single player, local hosts and dedicated servers need to run the mod to use the compositions with ALiVE. Note that clients joining dedicated servers do not need to subscribe (though they do need the cDLC obviously!) Release Highlights The full list of changes is on github but some highlights include: Maps: Cam Lao Nam (for SOG Prairie Fire); Anizay; Cham & Cham Winter; Deniland; UMB Columbia; Vidda; Vinjesvingec; Altiplano; Djalka; Goose Green; Halsoy; Hellanmaa & Winter; Krasnorus; Pulau; RHSPKL; Ryderwoord Island; Scargard; Scottish Highlands; VT5 (massive thanks to sevn10!) Missions: Four new SOG Praire Fire scenarios Factions: added full support for SOG Prairie Fire and Global Mobilisation Military AI Commander: Improved OPCOM objective selection (effectively slowing down the initial rate of advance, which will likely have a big impact on invasion type scenarios) Military AI Commander: Asymmetric mode updated to support era specific IEDs, vehicles and factories Military Air Component Commander: major overhaul to improve Air Tasking Orders MACC Player Tasks: Military Air Commander can now delegate SEAD and CSAR tasks to Players via the Strategic Player Tasks system (if enabled in C2ISTAR module) C2ISTAR: Option added to disable Image Intelligence Military Logistics: major overhaul to improve heli insertions in high density terrain such as jungle Virtual AI System: Fixed profile speed limiter (slow is now properly slow); added option to disable Zeus spawning virtual groups CQB: Support added for caves and tunnels Player Combat Support: Improved artillery ordnance detection; added Attack Ground feature for untargetted air attack runs (such as napalm drops) Civ Pop: Added support for SOG Prairie Fire including ambient sounds and VN_Rations for Humanitarian Aid in COIN scenarios (OPCOM Asymmetric) Download from the Steam Workshop Also available on Github and ALiVEmod.com (usually within 24 hours of this post) Get SOG Prairie Fire Compositions here Please note that as with all updates, if you have an issue loading a mission made with a previous version of ALiVE, delete and replace the modules in that mission.

  4. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release 1.13.1 Devastating Elite Army of Destruction It's been a while. In this year's release Tup has a meltdown, Spyderblack invents something awesome but entirely unrelated to ALiVE, Tupw goes all humanitarian and Highhead crashes his spaceship into the sun. There are also some bug fixes, a couple of actual updates and a whole lot of map indexing, which is probably long overdue. Release Highlights New or Updated Maps: Chernarus 2020 2.0; pja305; Wferlingen Winter; Chongo; Ruha; Summa Winter; Isla Abramia; Mull of Kintyre; Rosche; VT7; Lingor3; Livonia (finally!) and some others. Add option in Player Menu to restore markers after JIP Fixed armoured units refusing to play ball after spawning Improved vehicle damage persistence Improved persistence support for ACRE radios Added Humanitarian Aid for CivPop, which can improve relations in COIN scenarios (optional ACE support) See full commit history on Github Download Grab the latest version from ALiVEmod.com Also available on Steam Workshop (Usually within 24 hours of this post) Please note that as with all updates, if you have an issue loading a mission made with a previous version of ALiVE, delete and replace the modules in that mission.

  5. Generally people will only answer if they know the answer 🙂 It's throwing an error because you're defining a class twice somewhere in the config. I can't say what the specific issue is without seeing the config, but it's likely a very simple fix. Send us a copy of your custom faction and we can take a look at it.
  6. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release 1.12.1 Civilian Interaction Since we added the civilian population enhancements, there has been a great demand to integrated Spyderblack's Civ Interaction mod into ALiVE. This enables players to stop, search, detain and question civilians about the local situation, with a chance that they will give hints into enemy forces or insurgent activity in the area. Asymmetric operations are now more immersive than ever, with civilians playing a key role. We've also added several quality of life improvements based on player feedback, a long list of newly indexed maps and some underlying performance improvements, in particular CQB which is one of the oldest modules in the mod. Note that unfortunately we cannot index Livonia DLC map until BIS releases it as a pbo Release Highlights Ambient Civ Pop: integrated advanced civilian interaction by Spyderblack Combat Support & C2ISTAR: added partial-matching support for required items Mil CQB: added a new field to allow custom static weapon classnames Virtual AI Module: added a separate spawn range option for UAVs and allow for spawn ranges to change after mission start Lots of new maps indexed - big shout out to @Diveyez and @bradon Several performance improvements and "feature refinements" (bug fixes), including CQB module and ORBAT Creator.

  7. Factions names are all case sensitive, so check that first. You can load a faction into the Orbatron to check that it has groups defined properly to work with ALiVE (it's what Orbatron was originally invented for!)
  8. Nice one Rock! Great to see some RKSL quality kit again!
  9. Steam updated with a couple of fixes that didn't make it into the release and because reasons.
  10. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Release Build 1.10 This is a maintenance build with a some bug fixes, tweaks and map re-indexes. There are undoubtedly still bugs (when are there ever not?) and we'll keep an eye out for any real game breakers.

  11. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Pathfinding Spyderblack has taught ALiVE Virtual AI how to navigate, which is a feature that's been on our backlog since forever. This means virtual land forces should stick to the land and move around impassable terrain such as lakes and mountains, providing a more realistic interpretation of the battlefield. Vehicles should avoid very steep terrain, wheeled vehicles prefer roads and aircraft can go anywhere (when they're airborne anyway). Ai path finding may occasionally have issues on maps with lots of small islands, so there is an option to turn it off in the Virtual AI module if you wish. Release Highlights Profile Path Finding Logistics group mapping update for Community Factions Project Reindexed CUP maps after the update Added support for Anizay Added ability to define multiple inventory items to enable Combat Support menu See full commit history on Github Download Grab the latest version from ALiVEmod.com Also available from PlayWithSix, ArmAholic and Steam (Usually within 24 hours of this post) Please note that as with all updates, if you have an issue loading a mission made with a previous version of ALiVE, delete and replace the modules in that mission.

  12. ALIVE 1.9 Pre-Release is now available on Github. This introduces experimental pathfinding for ALiVE Virtual AI, which means virtual land forces should stick to the land and move around impassable terrain such as lakes. Vehicles should avoid mountainous terrain, wheeled vehicles prefer roads, and planes can go anywhere (when they're airborne anyway). It took Spyderblack just under a week to put this together and it seems to work without any issues, which is...suspicious. It'd be great if some people could try this out and let us know what you think.
  13. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Spyder's ego is writing checks that his body can't cash. It's not his coding, it's his attitude. Code is dangerous, but right now he's worse. Dangerous and foolish. He may not like who's coding with him, but whose side is he on? That is right, but I held something back. I see some real genius in his coding, but I can't say that in here. I'm afraid that everyone in the tax trailer would see right through me, and I just don't want anyone to know that I've fallen for him. Release Highlights Combat Support - bunch of fixes and enhancements and you can now talk to a pilot from outside the chopper for quick RTB commands when dropping off in a hot LZ / HLS MACC - Planes should avoid immediate terminal lithobraking after spawning in flight (I've been playing too much KSP) C2ISTAR - Added a setting to exclude custom objectives from player tasking Map Index - I44 Merderet v3; Alaska 2035; Ruha (thanks to all those who contributed) See full commit history on Github Download Grab the latest version from ALiVEmod.com Also available on Steam Please note that as with all updates, if you have an issue loading a mission made with a previous version of ALiVE, delete and replace the modules in that mission.

  14. ALiVEmod.com The next generation dynamic persistent mission addon for ArmA3 Hotfix Due to accidental redundancies in our QA department following explosive decompression of the charity coffee machine, management has concluded that QA should henceforth be outsourced, off shored, crowd funded and delegated to public committee. There is nothing to see here, please move along. There were a number couple regression bugs in the 1.7 release that for some unfathomable reason didn't manifest in testing. The performance improvements on Virtual profiles somehow impacted logistics requests for groups of AI. There was also a bug with static data (such as map indexes) not loading properly and causing the infamous infinite loading screen, which has apparently been there for more than 3 years but only just decided to become a problem now. #justArmAthings Release Highlights See full commit history on Github Download Grab the latest version from ALiVEmod.com Also available from PlayWithSix, ArmAholic and Steam (Usually within 24 hours of this post) Please note that as with all updates, if you have an issue loading a mission made with a previous version of ALiVE, delete and replace the modules in that mission.
