  1. I'm after a modder that can make a standalone door object that I can place at the entrances of buildings that don't have doors. I'm currently working on a mission and a lot of the buildings in the map don't have doors, so I'd like just a door object that opens and closes like normal and possibly lockable? Should be a relatively easy mod, but I've got no idea when it comes to object addons and stuff like that. I only script. Cheers
  2. Or he could try this _trees = nearestObjects [player,["Trees"],15]; { _class = typeof _x; _pos = getpos _x; _dir = getdir _x; hideObject _x; _fakeTree = "Land_HelipadEmpty_F" createVehicle _pos; _fakeTree setVariable ["appletogetit",_RealAvailable,true]; }forEach _trees;
  3. If you can't use setVariable on map objects, could he do this _trees = nearestObjects [player,["Trees"],15]; { _class = typeof _x; _pos = getpos _x; _dir = getdir _x; hideObject _x; _newTree = _class createVehicle _pos; _newTree setdir _dir; _newTree setVariable ["appletogetit",_RealAvailable,true]; }forEach _trees
  4. Hey guys So basically, I'm an 18 year old Australian and have been playing ArmA since i was around 13 - 14 and have been learning scripting for around 3 years now and me and a few mates have been playing DayZ Overpoch for a fair while now, so I have decided to try and bring up my own Overpoch Server and attempt to build a community out of it. I do not have a server active yet due to technical reasons but they will be resolved within a couple of days. Basically I plan to bring up a Server with a self modified version of DayZ Overpoch, featuring a lot of custom scripts, custom vehicles, custom traders, etc and already have a small list of features that I have already coded ready for the server! For the first week of the server being active, all new players will spawn with 10oz Gold, 1 Safe and a Plot Pole to say thank you for choosing VRG! I would really like too see you guys on the server as I will be putting a lot of my spare time and work into making it the best experience for the players as I possible can! The servers IP will be - or you can just filter VRG. Also, I want to ask you guys, what Map should I have it on? Hope too see you guys soon, thanks. ~Nick The small list (Note: This is an EXTREMELY small list compared to what I will add in the future): - Building supply Missions - Other extra side missions like wrecked vehicles, gold caches, etc - Added vehicles with custom functions (List below) - Spawn Select script - Spawning in a Mozzie Helicopter with a Toolbox, Scrap Metal, Engine parts and Main Rotor - Some Tanks (Pretty expensive with with disabled cannons) - Much more to come in the future! Custom Vehicles list: (Subject to change after testing on server) - MI-24V Cannon only (no missiles or rockets) - MI-24P Cannon only (no rockets or bombs) - KA-52 Cannon only (no rockets or missiles) - AH-6J - T-72 (No cannon) - T-55 (No cannon) - T-34 (No cannon) - M1A1 (No cannon) - M2A2 (No TOW Missiles) - BMP2 (No AT-5 Missiles) - Armored SUV with retractable M134 Minigun - All Humvee variants (Except TOW variant) - All Offroad variants (Except SPG-9 variant) - BMP-2 - BMP-2 HQ - BRDM-2 - BRDM-2 HQ - BTR-40 - BTR-90 - BTR-90 HQ - M113 - KA-60 - MH-60 - UH-60 - MI-17 - AW-159 Lynx - UH-1y (No rockets)

    Any idea why I'm getting this? 06/14/2014 00:32:24 function: Arma2NETMySQLCommand ['nickp_1', 'INSERT INTO test_lplayers (uid, name, Bank, vkeys, licences, insurance, gear, weapons, inventory, settings, blacklist) VALUES('76561198085735088CIV', 'Nick', '[10000,1e+006,0]', '[]', '[]', '[false,false,false]', '['U_C_Poor_shorts_1',['FirstAidKit']]', '[]', '[]', '[true]', '[0,1,0]')'] 06/14/2014 00:32:24 maxResultSize: 10239 It will send to the server fine if I don't save the "Gear" or "Weapons" section. Thanks. Edit: I spent hours trying to figure this out last night but I literally figured it out 5 minutes after posting this.... Sometimes I have ArmA scripting haha Thanks

    Hey Firefly, would you be able to help me with this? I am trying to link ArmA 3 on my Computer to a remove SQL Server so I can test DB functions before actually uploading the Mission file to the Server but whenever I execute an SQL Command, my game instantly crashes. Command I am sending: _query = format["INSERT INTO lplayers (name, playerid, side) VALUES('%1', '%2', '%3')",(name player),(getPlayerUID player),(Side player)]; _sql = "Arma2Net.Unmanaged" callExtension format ["Arma2NETMySQLCommand ['%2', '%1']", _query,'nickp_1']; My Database.txt #SQL Server mysql,nickp_1,*IP*,3306,nickp,*Password* ArmA 2 NET log 06/13/2014 00:24:50 Arma2Net.Unmanaged loaded successfully 06/13/2014 00:24:50 Fatal unhandled exception of type System.IO.FileNotFoundException 06/13/2014 00:24:50 System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Arma2Net.Managed, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8762987cc8e6095e' or one of its dependencies.

I have also tried to use your Example Mission but I get the same error. Any Ideas? Thanks Edit: Never mind, after a bit of a search, I found out that my Computer had blocked the .dll files. I unblocked them and it's working now!

    Aah yes, I didn't notice that before. Thanks a lot, I managed to fix it by adding this code into it. if (_Headgear == "") then {_Headgear = "nil"}; if (_Goggles == "") then {_Goggles = "nil"}; if (_Uniform == "") then {_Uniform = "nil"}; if (_Vest == "") then {_Vest = "nil"}; if (_Backpack == "") then {_Backpack = "nil"};

    Hey Firefly, I was wondering if you could help me with this. I've been trying to make a script that saves players Weapons to MySQL, but I keep getting the [["Error"]] error.

  9. Thanks mate, I appreciate it! Yeah, pretty Dialog Menus aren't really my strong point but I've just been talking to Iceman77 and he's given me a lot of useful info on how to modify them to look nice, so i'll be working on making the Menus look nicer.
  10. Ok sweet, what's your Steam ID? edit: Don't worry. Found it on your profile. Adding you now.
  11. Hey Iceman, would I be able to inbox you to ask you something?
  12. Hi all, just thought I'd post here to let you all know about the Mission file I have been working on for the past few months. So, basically I'm 17 and have been playing ArmA since i was around 13 - 14 and have been learning scripting for around 2 years now. I used to have a server that ran a version of Altis Life Revolution that I modified slightly. Now I'm bringing up an Altis Life server that is 100% my own. It is NOT just a modified version of TAW Tonics Altis Life. The server will be hosted in Sydney Australia and will be up within a few weeks (We are currently in a closed testing phase). So, here's a basic rundown of the features that are currently in game as well as a few things that are planned for the near future. Details will be pretty rough here, for more info, check out the Facebook page where I post updates Daily - www.facebook.com/VRG.ArmA Cops, Civilians and Opfor factions Initially there will only be Cops and Civilians but once they are finished, I will be adding Opfor as a faction. Side missions There will be a large variety of side missions, some faction specific and some for everyone to have a go at. There will be things like military convoys to rob, enemy/rough squads to eliminate, diving missions, etc PMC Civilians will have the ability to become their own Private Military Company and accept contracts from other players and buy weapons. Day/Night cycles Server changes from Day to Night (and visa versa) every 30 minutes with 10 seconds warning. Dynamic weather cycles Weather changes every 30 minutes (when the time cycle changes) For more info on this, look at this post - www.facebook.com/VRG.ArmA/posts/697678226929785 Dynamic vehicle repair You can buy spare tires, engine parts, etc to fix your vehicle in a similar manner to the DayZ Mod You can also get Tank Tracks, Main Rotors, etc Video demonstration - Anti-hacking scripts These scripts will help prevent God mod, spawning vehicles, teleporting and all the other things we hate about script kiddies. Base Building You can buy almost any object in ArmA 3 and use it to build a base either solo or with a group of friends. I will be adding doors that will only open when a pin number is entered so you can lock your base. You can also buy weapon safes so you can lock all your items safely when you log off. Stat Save MySQL will be used as a Stat save to save Objects, Vehicles and most importantly, Players. Also, here's a video of my Boat loading/unloading script - It has been modified slightly since then. There is many more features and planned features but you'll have to check the FaceBook page for that - www.facebook.com/VRG.ArmA We hope you like our mission file and hope to see you on our server! VRG Nick

    Ok, i'll have a quick look aver it later on. I don't think anything is returning nil 'cause i use hint format["%1", _variable]; to tell me what is being returned ingame.
