  1. Official thread of Patrol Operations for Arma 3 A mission Game mode developed for the RV engine, Patrol Operations is a dynamic, random mission generator that is great for both mass public play and clan tactical gaming. Missions are randomly dynamic, with enemy force strength scaled to match the number of players connected so as to challenge players appropriately.

  2. ah yes, that is a bug when i was porting some code over from the Altis version. Will have that fixed shortly.
  3. Not an easy job. Either create a script to reposition the objects each frame slowly OR attach them to a boat that can move.
  4. Useful tip To spawn the new Jets DLC carrier via a script is the same as creating any other vehicle. However, to orientate or reposition it, the object will not update once spawned like other standard vehicles as the carrier is multiple objects. To update the position, direction and pitchbank, there is a new function: BIS_fnc_Carrier01PosUpdate; To spawn the carrier: private _carrier = createVehicle ["Land_Carrier_01_base_F",<position>,[],0,"None"]; To set its direction or to shift the carrier's position via a script, update the original object's attributes then run the function BIS_fnc_Carrier01PosUpdate: _carrier setPosWorld <position>; _carrier setDir <degree>; [_carrier] call BIS_fnc_Carrier01PosUpdate; The carrier will now be aligned to its base.

  5. Go to your "intel Docuements" and Tab 2 (F2) is your squad management. There you can have them join your squad and on Tab 3 (f3) you can assign them ranks and roles.
  6. To Celebrate the release of SOG DLC, Patrol Ops 4 is launching with a specific version for the DLC adapted to support the UI and features operations tailored to the map.

  7. PO4 Released for S.O.G. Prairie Fire To Celebrate the release of SOG DLC, Patrol Ops 4 is launching with a specific version for the DLC adapted to support the UI and features operations tailored to the map. The initial version release is putting the player in the OPFOR PAVN vs US Army MACV. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2475615371 People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) https://www.roy86.com.au/arma/patrol-operations/ The year is 1968 and the Vietnam War is reaching its peak. The elite MACV-SOG reconnaissance team is attempting to stop the flow of materials down the Ho Chi Minh Trail by hunting and destroying the PAVN 559th Transportation Group. As the PAVN, locate targets of opportunity, gather intel to complete key operations and push back the MACV-SOG forces. A dynamic mission generator with random objectives designed for combined-arms co-operative tactical gameplay by larger groups of players. Patrol Operations is a co-operative mission set on various maps, configured for different sides, with diverse, randomly-generated tasks. Players must work as a team to engage in tactical missions scaled in difficulty with player count. Task locations, enemy forces and scenarios are randomised to ensure players have an interesting experience every time the mission is replayed. I hope you enjoy and please stand by as the rest of the versions are released for Altis, Malden and Tanoa editions including Blufor and Opfor playable factions.
  8. The front end mission making and task making is pretty straight forward for those looking to dabble in missions. I'm documenting the process here: Multi-Player Scripted Framework The backend of the framework is more complex and not for the inexperienced but you would only go there for heavy customisation.
  9. Testing feedback is complete, looks like we have a stable version that seems fun to play. I am busy the next two weeks so after I will send a final update to the testers for them to host publicly in recognition of their assistance. A little while later, I’ll update steam and Armaholic with all map variants including blufor and opfor sides.
  10. Go for it mate. Also, check Discord! I've messaged you for some testing.
  11. Lol nice. Someone wrote me a msg a while ago which said:
  12. 😐 nice sig... this is more accurate. error undefined variable in the expression: PO4releaseDate = date + _soon;
  13. Aww I thought I made every version pretty patch resistant... 😛
  14. all good, I got it 😉 and appreciate all the support you've shown too
  15. Love you mate, though i need to update the resume with you. Working on ML applications now 😉 I'm still working on it but due to current situation this year, my work and family are the important focus in an increasingly poor economic environment. There are 2 principle bugs I'm fixing which, in the last few Arma updates, has caused performance issues in the mission. Once these are resolved, we're good to go.
  16. We used to have this issue in A2 as well. This often relates to the terrain under the object. If it is practically rough, we would see some mis-alignment in the deck. Try it on relatively flat areas.
  17. this is useful, thanks!
  18. After that last session, yes. I had to reimplement a logistics process for some of the operation types that require the movement of objects on trucks. Now that it is working, the final check is some MP tests to ensure this version is stable and an update will be published. There are some small dependencies like addActions and event handler framework. I wrote them in the current form so I can go back and build stand-alone versions easily. And thank you for the support. Building so it is SP+MP compatible, scalable, variable and stable takes time so I appreciate everyone's patience and support as we go. Cheers,
  19. Did another session (quiet one) going through the Logistics scripts for the trucks to support some of the operation types that require transport of shipping containers and supplies
  20. Dev session covering off how to port Patrol Ops 4 to other maps and set up some custom config for your communities
  21. Dev session live on youtube going through the design and configuation of the HVT Dealer task
  22. definitely is. You can use "forest" to identify concealed areas with tree cover and we could create locations in the metadata to identify viable locations outlined as described.
  23. Setting up new operation types and multistage operations in PO4. For those interested, I created a playlist of the dev streams from the twitch feed. Plan is I'm trying to complete at least one per week to make sure progress is still going and to allow others realtime input into the ideas.
  24. Here is how to create new tasks in the MPSF framework, either for Patrol Ops or your TAC mission Patrol Ops 4 - Twitch Dev Session #3 - Task Config
  25. Another dev session about map config and fixing the task positions
