  1. Kinda reminds me of the buildings from this TC's vids:
  2. Download Link (Google Drive) Download Link (Steam Workshop) Version: 0.98 Size: 130 KB ADDITIONS: • Added: Compatibility with the new SOG:PF CDLC radio backpacks • Added: Compatibility with the new SOG:PF CDLC radios + Can only use your own side's radios (Enemy radios give no benefit) • Added: Radio range extends to 9600m when in a military vehicle + Only while in the Driver seat, any turret, or first cargo seat ADJUSTMENTS: • Tweaked: Reduced VON volume check to 10%, down from 50% • Tweaked: SystemChat messages on init are now more obvious FIXES: • Fixed: SOG:PF aircrew slots weren't recognized • Fixed: Detection of player's living/breaking status on KeyPress & KeyRelease • Fixed: Dead and unable-to-breathe players could transmit squelches • Fixed: Detection of radio backpack • Fixed: Dropping radio backpack isn't properly detected • Fixed: Outdated reference to unused "r_dis" global variable in "up.sqf" OPTIMIZATIONS: • Optimized: CUP & SOG:PF RTO backpacks removed from "r_RTOBP" unless detected • Optimized: RemoteExec JIP queue • Optimized: isAbleToBreathe checks on keypress/release • Optimized: Wrapped condition in the "hasRadio.sqf" with parenthesis REMOVALS: • Replaced: N/A KNOWN BUGS: • Displays other than 46 and 312 will pause AFAR eventHandlers until it exits __________________________________________________________________________ I honestly thought I released this update months ago... Although it hasn't been thoroughly tested, this update adds support for the S.O.G. Prairie Fire CDLC. A brief test in the "Mike Force" mission proved it works, if you follow these installation instructions. The next update will focus on a complete rewrite and potential redesign, using OnEachFrame instead of displayEventHandlers which will fix the listed DisplayEventHandler bug and add mouse-button support, but could impact performance. Only way to find out is to get it done! Enjoy!
  3. Totally forgot Armaholic vanished, thank you!

It's not as complete as I'd like (In terms of having more furniture templates done) but it is overall a gigantic upgrade in performance and includes support for many Livonia buildings. Thanks and enjoy!
  5. Thought you quit on this project years ago, nice to see it's still being worked on. Looks good.
  6. If the house has multiple possible templates, it will always use the same one it randomly selected initially.
  7. Each house has their own furniture templates. Some have just one, others may have up to 3 different templates.
  8. As a slight tip, playAction is a global command that AI on the server can execute and doesn't need to be remoteExecuted. However, switchAction does need to be remoteExecuted, as well as the animation commands like you mentioned such as playMove / playMoveNow / switchMove.
  9. It's Karl Pilkington at his peak form

Download Link (Google Drive) Download Link (Steam Workshop) Download Link (Armaholic) Version: 0.97 Size: 127 KB ADDITIONS: • Added: Distance and terrain factors impact radio interference • Added: Volume control knob to radio interface • Added: "vol.sqf" script to handle local radio volume for players • Added: "volu.sqf" script to scale squelch and noise volumes • Added: Volume knob handles radio VON, squelches and noise • Added: Custom squelch-out noise for receiving players (+4kb) • Added: Beep noise when clicking "Mode" button on radio interface • Added: Radio interface can now be dragged around screen, position is cached • Added: Dropping radio will reset cached radio UI position ADJUSTMENTS: • Changed: Radio range is dictated by radio used, instead of channel • Improved: Positioning/scale of radio interface across more screen varieties • Merged: Scripted radio screen controls into "dialogs.hpp" • Tweaked: Buttons are highlighted first few times you open the radio • Tweaked: Squelches are only audible to client who is transmitting • Tweaked: Increased long-range radio range from 8000m to 9600m • Tweaked: Reduced short-range radio range from 3500m to 3200m • Tweaked: Moved spawning of global squelch/noise code to "d.sqf" • Tweaked: Opening radio while dead now switches you to Spectator channel • Tweaked: '_p' is no longer a private variable in "M_In.sqf" • Tweaked: Condensed help text in radio UI FIXES: • Fixed: Check for radio or RTO backpack was broken in "d.sqf" • Fixed: Talking in Spectator channel while respawning would soft-break AFAR • Fixed: Opening radio when in Global channel would block channel switching • Fixed: AFAR init muted Speech volume, which muted sounds like Tactical Ping • Fixed: Players without a radio still heard VOIP in channels other than Direct • Fixed: Radio no longer on top of "Press 'Esc' key to put away radio" text OPTIMIZATIONS: • Optimized: Changed backpack to unitBackpack in multiple scripts • Optimized: Squelch-outs no longer checks receiver's incapacitated state • Optimized: All controls are committed within a forEach, instead of individually • Optimized: Replaced code to check for radio with 'r_rC' function in "out.sqf" REMOVALS: • Replaced: 3D radio with a 2D image of a AN/PRC-148 Thales radio (+65kb) • Replaced: Global squelch-out sound with more realistic end of transmission noise • Removed: "Toggle 3D pop-up radio" option from AFAR options menu • Removed: RscTitles reference from "Description.ext" • Removed: "titles.hpp" • Removed: "3DLR.sqf" • Removed: 'r_3DR' global variable • Removed: Placeholder comments in UI code KNOWN BUGS: • Displays other than 46 and 312 will pause AFAR eventHandlers until it exits __________________________________________________________________________ TLDR; More important bug fixes, rewrote radio interface code, made interface a bit more user-friendly, added a volume control knob, and changed radio range from being channel dependent to being radio type dependent; RTO backpack has 9600m radio range while just a handheld radio grants 3200m radio range. The bug reports from the community have been very helpful thus far and are largely why this update is here. If you find any bugs that aren't already listed here, please let me know. Otherwise enjoy!
  11. If you're trying to optimize EOS, I recommend also using the setTriggerInterval script command to increase the interval value. I personally set it to 2, whereas by default a trigger's interval is 0.5.

Thanks & enjoy!
  13. There is a performance boost when hiding and disabling simulation of units. Also, for reasons unknown to me, lots of groups is bad. Even if they're just full of objNull, so keep the number of groups as low as possible -- I did a test with 166 groups and almost all of them were for groups where the units were deleted (Forgot to add group deletion in my garbage collection) and FPS would stutter because of it. The issue went away once I fixed this. IMO it is best to utilize exactly what you need and not get greedy, which is part of the art of design and optimization lol.

    Position Algorithm ArmA3

    Haven't tried your method @hansen111 but if it's 250+ times faster than inArea, that sounds yummy. One thing with triggers though is you can also use thisList with triggers, which returns all objects in the trigger that can trigger it, if any. So if player is in the trigger, thisList will equal [player] if the trigger is set to "ANYPLAYER". That method has been fastest for me, but I'm all about optimization so who knows. Maybe you're onto something. I find a lot of stuff on the wiki to be situationally correct or inaccurate sometimes. Trial and error through experimentation and do what works for you!
  15. @Melody_Mike You can write a script to block those keybinds using displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown", {//muhCodez}]; in conjuction with actionKeys or inputAction.
