  3. Alongside our planned Jets DLC platform upgrades, we needed moar UI. But quite a big part of the ingame screen is already taken by various elements and gadgets. We realize that, despite our goal to be more 'minimalistic' with UI, we have quite a lot going on in there. We've decided to put some elements into 'generic containers'. Together with Weapon and Vehicle Info, we now have a system called 'Custom Info'. It's 'Custom' because it allows you to pick which ones you want to have displayed in game. Custom also because creates a framework for modders to use - more about that later on wiki. Before we go any further, I recommend you to reset your keybinds to A3 or Apex preset (and dump all the hours you've spent customizing them) - otherwise you'll see a lot of missing strings and unnecessary action menu entries. As a player, what you get is a system of two windows - left and right. You have actions to toggle modules inside these windows. By default: [ - next module (GPS, feed, sensor display....) on left display RCTRL + [ - toggle sub-mode (range, feed spectrum...) on left display ] - next module on right display RCTRL + ] - toggle sub-mode on right display (no default keybind) - previous module on left display (no default keybind) - previous module on right display (no default keybind) - close left display (no default keybind) - close right display You can find following modules: Navigation (if your have a GPS item or GPS is configured as integral part of your vehicle) - the navigation is now rotating. The tech is being improved, so you can expect some hickups. Slingload assistant (if your vehicle can slingload) UAV camera feed (if you have an UAV terminal) Crew list (If you are inside a vehicle) In addition - in all military aircraft - you will have a Sensor display. More about that in the Sensor Overhaul feedback thread In all tanks, APCs, MRAPs and similar 'advanced' vehicles, you will have camera feeds from other crew's positions. In attack aircraft (gunships, fighters, CAS), you will also have feeds from TGP (driver), gunner and also from a launched missile wherever applicable. The old actions for GPS, Drone feed and Slingload assistant still work and will directly switch the default window to the respective module. Enjoy, and let us know what you think!

    ArmA 3 AI Pathing Rant

    Arma 3 AI can only walk on objects and structures using simple paths and positions defined in the model. The original main focus of the OFP/ARMA series has been open terrains and streets and covers in urban areas rather than interiors. In buildings the AI has been mainly used to man static positions rather than to use buildings dynamically. It has been out of the scope of A3 development to change this AI system (no matter how much we'd like to). Knowing the limitations - it's been a tough and controversial call - we have still created some unique locations on our terrains (Kavala Castle, Ghost Hotel on Altis, Temple or rock formations on Tanoa) which have limited AI accessibility or are not suited for usage with (moving) AI at all.
  5. It should work with any "vehicle", including the "character vehicle" or entity. Just add/change/override the panel component. >> "Components" >> "VehicleSystemsDisplayManagerComponentLeft" >> "Components" >> "VehicleSystemsDisplayManagerComponentRight" >> "Components" >> "VehicleSystemsDisplayManagerComponentMyCustomPositionXthPanelThatIWontBeAbleToControlByAnUserActionButItCanStillBeThere" You need to specify in the component: componentType = "VehicleSystemsDisplayManager"; When the panel components are completely missing (e.g. as it is now with vanilla characters) then - depending on the panel position or availability of sensors in a vehicle/entity - it falls back to use one of these: configfile >> "DefaultVehicleSystemsDisplayManagerLeft" configfile >> "DefaultVehicleSystemsDisplayManagerLeftSensors" configfile >> "DefaultVehicleSystemsDisplayManagerRight" configfile >> "DefaultVehicleSystemsDisplayManagerRightSensors"
  6. Most probably not, I am really sorry about that. Can you point us to the pack please?
  7. No Dev-Branch update this week due to logistical issues

    What was your Gateway Arma?

    To me in a way the closest one to the full scale combat and freedom that OFP brought was probably Wargasm. Back in our early prim. school age we used to play a lot of Dune 2, Strike Eagle III and Wolfenstein 3D. Funnily enough, Wolfenstein 3D scared me off 😄 the classic FPS genre a bit for a long time and I spent a lot of time with strategy and sim games. Otherwise late 90's were quite rich in sims (Jane's, Novalogic...:/) and tactical games. To name a few F/A-18 Korea, Longbow, JSF, A-10 Cuba, Enemy Engaged, Spec Ops, Delta Force, Rainbow Six (I'd probably be still able to tell each team's route to the hostage room in the embassy mission. Only had demos back then and I'd just play that one demo mission over and over, exploit it and have fun with it... ). And 1944 Across the Rhine, the first game I bought myself. Classics like Doom or Duke Nukem 3D - I'd only play them in MP on LAN in school. But then Unreal brought the bots and mods and since then I might have spent the most of my gaming time just by messing around with mods and AI. (UT Assault missions with weapon mods like Strike Force and Infiltration, or Tactical Ops ❤️). And OFP demo - played the mission until I managed to destroy all the armor at the end. And I still had to evac. Such disappointment. So linear :P. BIS PLS FIX 😉 Next time I stole the helicopter...

  13. running servers with verifySignatures enabled running multiple server instances on one server box, launched sequentially or all at once running servers on linux / windows running servers via some server management service running the servers with a large amount of mods (e.g. >50GB) mods signed with v2 and v3 signatures using -serverMod= and standard -mod= mods allowing client-side mods running the servers with various start-up params any specific, non-standard or abusive usage of servers you can think of ;) then joining the servers with a correct mod set, wrong mod set, client-side mods, missing signatures, altered addons... trying to hack it And any combination of the above :)
  14. RC testing of Update 1.90 has started. Steam branch access code: Arma3Update190RC Arma 3: ~142.7 MB / Arma 3 Server ~53.7 MB The primary goal of this update is to reintroduce the MP security measures that have been rolled back with the 1.88 Hotfix after they had initially caused mod compatibility issues in the multiplayer in the 1.86 Update. As such this update is limited in scope and may not contain the usual variety of fixes or general improvements. Areas of focus (pseudo-changelog): Added: Improvements to multiplayer security systems related to addon loading, encryption, and server checks (reintroduced with fixes and improved cache handling) ☛ FEEDBACK GOES HERE ☚
  15. Arma3Legacy184 works for me. Check whether you don't have some rogue spaces in the field when you're pasting the code :)
  16. 13-12-2018 No Dev-Branch update this week due to a focus on a potential 1.88 Hotfix #2 ...another hotfix, srsly BIS? No Dev-Branch update this week due to a work on a potential 1. 88 Mini-Patch ...patch sounds bad, it's more of a continued development. No Dev-Branch update this week due to a work on another 1.88 Iteration ...what if we don't release it? No Dev-Branch update this week due to logistical issues
  17. I am sorry about the caused troubles :( There have been related changes in the Update 1.86 (https://dev.arma3.com/post/spotrep-00082) Here is a short info about the changes with a how-to guide for updating models:
  18. yup, but FYI in any case 1 also defaults to 2 ;) (in Arma 3)

  20. The hotfix has been released.
  21. Can you please share the mod list you are using?
  22. Please try out the hotfix available @ rc_limited branch with beta access code LimitedRCBranch186 and report if the issues you were experiencing are now gone and it behaves the same as it behaved in 1.84. (cache not released, multiple instances hanging, people unable to connect, server side mods not working....) steamCMD -beta rc_limited -betapassword LimitedRCBranch186 Verify in RPT that you're running the correct version (1.86.145242). The hotfix build may look compatible with the current stable one, but it's not.
