  1. Thanks. This last bit pretty much did the trick. Coupled with configuring my mod for ACE and your advice here I got it to work, so thanks for that. And thanks for the bit of knowledge as well. Semi-related questions, if you have a minute, looking at the community page for CfgPatches it says that CfgVehicle entries go in 'units' and CfgWeapons go in 'weapons', would I also include classes that are scope=0 or scope=1? And I've also seen mods having a line for ammo and magazines in CfgPatches in the past, but that's not in the documentation, so is that just not documented or is it people that didn't know any better? Thanks again.
  2. Thanks. I was under the impression that I only needed requiredAddons if I was overwriting pre-existing classes. Since all of my code is inheriting and not overwriting I didn't think I needed it. But looking into it I see it's also for load order, so I can see how that would help. I added "A3_Data_F_Tank_Loadorder", which didn't work. I also added "A3_Weapons_F_Explosives" since it's inheriting from that CfgPatches and I added "A3_Weapons_F" for good measure. Then I tried adding my CfgVehicles entry "BHZ_TrainingTripMine" into units[]={}; When that didn't work I also added the magazine and ammo entry as well. I don't think I needed those, wasn't sure if I should try to put them in weapons or not. Either way I feel like I was just throwing everything at the problem and nothing has worked yet.
  3. I'm trying to make a tripwire mine that has the sound/smoke/noise effect that the LoW training mine has. I've gotten 99% of it to work, but that last thing I need help with. In the mission editor I can see my new explosive, and it's in the explosive category. It also fires properly and has the desired effects. That's the good. What's not working is that I can't defuse the mine. In the arsenal it shows up in magazines and not explosives. I believe these two symptoms are related. If I can just figure out how to get this to show up in the explosives tab of the arsenal I think it will fix my lack of ability to defuse. I'm inheriting from stuff that already works, and I don't think I've changed anything that would cause my problem. So I'm here to see if anyone can find what I've missed. Thanks. class CfgPatches { class BHZ_TrainingTripMine { units[]= {}; weapons[]={}; requiredVersion=1; requiredAddons[]={}; }; }; class CfgAmmo { class APERSTripMine_Wire_Ammo; class BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Ammo: APERSTripMine_Wire_Ammo { _generalMacro = "BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Ammo"; model = "\A3\Weapons_F\explosives\mine_AP_tripwire"; defaultMagazine = "BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Mag"; hit = 1; indirectHit = 0; indirectHitRange = 0; suppressionRadiusHit = 0; mineInconspicuousness = 30; mineCanBeReactivated = 0; mineModelDisabled = "\A3\Weapons_F\explosives\mine_AP_tripwire_d"; minDamageForCamShakeHit = 1.55; explosionEffects = "BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Effect"; effectsSmoke = "SmokeShellOrange"; CraterEffects = "IEDMineSmallLandCrater"; picture = "\A3\Weapons_F\Data\UI\gear_mine_AP_tripwire_CA.paa"; class CamShakeExplode { power = 0; duration = 0.2; frequency = 20; distance = 0; }; class CamShakeHit { power = 0; duration = 0.2; frequency = 20; distance = 1; }; soundTrigger[] = {""}; soundActivation[] = {"A3\Sounds_F_Orange\arsenal\explosives\TrainingMine\TrainingMine_Placement_01",1.9952624,1,20}; soundDeactivation[] = {"A3\Sounds_F_Orange\arsenal\explosives\TrainingMine\TrainingMine_Deactivate_01",1.9952624,1,20}; SoundSetExplosion[] = {"TrainingMine_Exp_SoundSet","TrainingMine_Report_SoundSet"}; }; class BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Ammo_Scripted: APERSTripMine_Wire_Ammo { triggerWhenDestroyed = 1; }; }; class CfgMagazines { class APERSTripMine_Wire_Mag; class BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Mag: APERSTripMine_Wire_Mag { _generalMacro = "BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Mag"; count = 1; scope = 2; mass = 15; ammo = "BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Ammo"; picture = "\A3\Weapons_F\Data\UI\gear_mine_AP_tripwire_CA.paa"; model = "\A3\Weapons_F\explosives\mine_AP_tripwire_i"; displayName = "Training Trip Mine"; }; }; class CfgVehicles { class APERSTripMine; class BHZ_TrainingTripMine: APERSTripMine { _generalMacro = "BHZ_TrainingTripMine"; scope = 2; ammo = "BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Ammo"; displayName = "Training Tripwire Mine"; picture = "\A3\Weapons_F\Data\UI\gear_mine_AP_tripwire_CA.paa"; vehicleClass = "Mines"; editorPreview = "\A3\EditorPreviews_F\Data\CfgVehicles\APERSTripMine.jpg"; }; }; class BHZ_TrainingTripMine_Effect { class LightTTM { intensity = 1; interval = 1; lifeTime = 14; position[] = {-1.65,0.15,0.1}; simulation = "light"; type = "TrainingMine_light"; }; class Smoke { intensity = 0.1; interval = 1; lifeTime = 14; position[] = {-1.65,0.15,0.1}; simulation = "particles"; type = "TrainingMine_smoke"; }; class Sparks { intensity = 1; interval = 1; lifeTime = 14; position[] = {-1.65,0.15,0.1}; simulation = "particles"; type = "TrainingMine_FireSparks"; }; };
  4. Anyone understand the difference if I use widthRailWay=1 or widthRailWay=4 ?
  5. Have you found a config person yet?
  6. Yes, but it would be for every instance of that building on the terrain. You wouldn't be able to change individual buildings without re-engineering the terrain itself. Though, since I've never done that, or made a terrain at all, I'm not sure what replacing building models would do to what the building outline would look like on the map in the map screen or GPS view. My guess is it would still take the shape of the original building.
  7. You could, if the buildings are essentially the same. Create a new config.cpp, create new entries inheriting from the CUP buildings, using the JBAD class names for your new entries. class CfgVehicles { class CUP_BuildingClassNames; class JBAD_BuildingClassName: CUP_BuildingClassNames { }; };
  8. Thanks for the reply. I'm not smart enough to figure out how to do that, so I'm just going to abandon the idea. Thanks though.
  9. Is there a way to play a sound file then players try to broadcast, to let them know the jammer is active? Is there a performance hit related to the size of your jamming area? Would a 2km area be detrimental compared to a 200m area?

    Retexture open parachute

    Shameless plug for my mod with different colored canopies.

    Pook BOATS pack

    Looking sweet. PM me if you need any config help.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    RHS makes their mod to be as realistic as possible. They're not going to make something knowingly unrealistic just because it could be useful to SP players.
  13. Are you using respawn modules? Do you have them set for the right faction to spawn? Or are you using respawn_west markers?

    Zeus after JIP

    They are. I've never experienced a problem with someone rejoining a mission and not being able to access Zeus powers, so besides the standard stuff I'm afraid I don't have much to offer.

    Zeus after JIP

    Could also add a few different Zeus modules to help: 1) putting #adminLogged in the owner block, meaning the person logged in as admin of the server will have Zeus access; 2) putting the intended person's SteamID/ArmaID number in the owner block will enable them to use Zeus regardless of the slot they use to load in.
