  1. I believe so yes because there are scripts which attack turrets on vehicles and they still work.
  2. Thanks but it did not work. I found however something that did. The below code works: while {alive spot0} do { spot0 doWatch target0; spot0 doTarget target0; waitUntil {runner0 distance mark0 <5}; spot0 doWatch target1; spot0 doTarget target1; waitUntil {runner0 distance mark1 <5}; }; Yeah runner0 is indeed a civilian running constantly from the mark0 object to the other mark1 object! For some reason sleep does not work when in a loop in our case. About making the selection random the wiki has sadly not got detailed examples so I will try finding and seeing how other scripts work.
  3. So as part of a mission I am working on I need a guy to: 1.] Target a specific location with his static weapon, 2.] wait 5 seconds, 3.] target another specific location, 4.] wait 5 seconds, 5.] repeat the process. So by using a script that cannot be more simple as far as I am aware I wrote: while {alive spot0} do { spot0 doTarget target0; sleep 5; spot0 doTarget target1; sleep 5; }; So the first time the script runs spot0 unit does indeed wait but from then on he constantly moves the turret left and right targeting the target0 and target1 objects without waiting! Why please? And if the above issue is solved I would like, if possible, unit spot0 to target a random selection of targets at his first move and a random selection of other targets at his second move. I know that it can be randomized further but Arma issues have forced me to designate specific target locations. Oh and if I could make him move his turret at a slower pace that would also be awesome.
  4. If I may share my College opinion, he is most likely trying to force you to make a campaign and release it so as for everyone to stop complaining. Naturally speaking even if you do that you will be proven to be a liar. So the guy will get his campaign and you will be in some sort of social trouble. So either he just wants you to make a campaign without being mentally able to take the second part in consideration or he wants to have a two in one scenario. As for solving the whole thing I can think of a solution that will however mean spending time for this guy and showing a character that is ehm debatable? or you can simply ignore them all and blame them for not trusting you but a kinda complete stranger. Most times the best solution. Otherwise there might be a domino of destruction. College life...
  5. Well not even the simple MOVE waypoint works at times.. Sadly BI has yet to fix basic issues. And I doubt they will ever be fixed. I mean I use simple move waypoints for vehicles and they get stuck going back and forth or they just stop moving for no reason. That is when they are not on roads but on valleys with no trees whatsoever. Or they work nicely but when you host a server they don't. Really irritating : \ Due to that I would have stopped creating Arma missions if it wasn't for the testing groups and whoever downloads our missions having fun and all.

    Tasks Order Assigment

    Thanks and yep it is one of my favorite scripts. Especially because when playing not even the editor can know where the hostile units are exactly

    Tasks Order Assigment

    As for triggers sometimes placing another trigger and writing by hand while NOT copy pasting the same condition makes the new trigger work. As for the CQB script we got a really cool one. If you know how to un-pbo a mission just download the latest mission of the Campaign indicated in my signature. It is in the Scripts folder, the House Patrol one.
  8. Maybe you can use an animation where the AI walks? Because as stated above it is true that the AI goes crazy when walking on objects. By crazy I mean let's try jumping off a cliff or a rooftop. 30 meters? Pfff ... piece of cake. P.S. It might sound shocking but yes ... they died in both cases.

    GF Building Replacement Script - Mod

    Although to be honest I cannot see how editors will use the above script the WIP Script you mentioned will be really nice if a winter add-on free vanilla map was made available Hmm there must be an editing idea that I have missed..

    South Asia v1.3 No errors!!

    It might be a loooooong shot but hope this map eventually reaches Arma 3 graphic standards ✔️

    Mission Objectives

    The condition can be a: NameOfPlayer distance nameOfRadio < 5; for the message there are many ways like simple hint or sideChat or play a sound.

    GF Auto Loot Road Crash Script - Mod

    Well if this script production continues all left for the editors will be to create the tasks and the briefings. The mission environment will be ready 👍

    HAFM NAVY (Ships) - v2.0

    Hmm ... maybe for as long as there is a chopper with players on board near the ship. If there is no pilot in the chopper there will be no chance of the chopper taking off. Or with an engine on condition too. Logically speaking who lets a chopper with an engine on while the ship travels? Chances for a ship being hit right when the chopper is with a crew and an engine on might be next to zero but yeah your argument has got a basis.

    Tasks Order Assigment

    If needed the task script we use is mp and sp supported and you can find it here: My post is post number 3.

    Tasks Order Assigment

    Have you named the tasks differently? First thing that comes to mind is that two tasks have the same name. If not, try de-syncing and re-syncing everything.

    Video Formats Implementation

    Well until something changes I will have the .ogv videos in place while keeping the high quality ones waiting. Although I doubt anything will change soon if it is about money too. BI developers seem to be caught up with building their new engine. It should take months or years and if a new game does not come out BI might have an income issue.
  19. So in my WIP campaign there are videos I use in a variety of places. For those of you who do not know only .ogv formats are permitted in Arma. When it comes to showing videos on in-game screens such as tvs there is no problem but when it comes to showing videos as intros the quality is not good. It is watchable but not good. So as far as I can understand the reason why only .ogv formats are used is due to size? but maybe that should be up to the editor. If his mission is big in size or not. So why not let mp4 video formats be used? Much better quality and the format people tend to use for videos.

    ASR AI 3

    While in ASR all works awesomelly I would like to ask, Does the presence or absence of scopes on weapons affect the AI accuracy? Because one could argue that AI armed with non scoped Apex AK-47s were too accurate although quite far.

    Video Formats Implementation

    Did not know that to be honest. Seeing free software like AVC offer multiple video formats I never thought there would be extra fees. Hmm.. wonder what other companies use for their high quality videos.
  22. JohnKalo


    Well maybe you can ask other Ship add-on developers how they made their ships work. Cooperation can be very profitable at times.
  23. JohnKalo


    This looks like a really nice addition to Arma already. Since you will continue working on it for months it should turn out to be great. I can already think of many mission implementations if all ship features work nicely

    VCOM vs ASR

    Have not tested VCOM but ASR I use in all missions. The AI is really good and I especially like how groups work together so as to defeat us players. The way they flank and all. Adrenaline levels go high when you cannot know from where the AI will attack. Before ASR it was a simple head on attack. Nothing much to that. Oh and how they use smoke and grenades too. EDIT: I use ASR in MP primarily.

    [SP/COOP-(1-4)] Defying the Odds

    Was hoping there would be two mission releases in Christmas but I had to update some missions due to add-on updates and reach the final stage of all Chapter 1 missions. Due to that: Naturally if you have any recommendations about the Campaign creation feel free to share them. The story is pretty much set but it may change if we cannot implement it in the Arma engine.
