    Is single player being phased out of Arma?

    Single player in general has been getting phased out for a decade. It's more expensive to buiild and maintain, much easier to create environment for unpaid labor (modders) to work on "emergent player generated content" for you
  4. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/getSlotItemName There are hardcoded slot numbers 603 - Goggles 605 - Headgear 608 - Map 609 - Compass 610 - Watch 611 - Radio 612 - GPS 616 - HMD 617 - Binoculars 701 - Vest 801 - Uniform 901 - Backpack So if you are trying to determine if the player has a radio (vanilla or modded), you just do (player getSlotItemName 611) isNotEqualTo "" // the player has a radio of some sort since it will return "" if there is nothing in the radio slot

    Soldier Tracker ( Map and GPS Icons )

    Updated to 2.6.0 Small update - GPS icons now display correctly when GPS is used in rotation mode ( ctrl + ] ) - Mod compatibility, no longer relies on vanilla GPS item (will detect whatever is in that inventory slot instead). - UAV/remote-controlled-unit detection. Correctly shows player name who is actively remote controlling a unit/drone, even without UAV terminal.
  6. Alternative to "ItemRadio" in (assignedItems player) is (player getSlotItemName 611) isNotEqualTo "" which is mod-friendly for non-vanilla radio items

    theoretically easy, but ive never created anything multi faction. there isnt much demand for TvT beyond king of the hill. you can run "playable opfor" already however, so technically it does support multi faction
  8. there are no seasons in arma (spring, autumn, etc) green trees are green trees. the most you'll get is the sun position and sunrise/sunset time, and that the thermal imaging contrast changes with ambient temperature (winter is high contrast white/black while summer is lower contrast grey scale)

    Land transportation

    I would suggest not to bother. the AI driving is generally incapable of complex and mission-critical movements in multiplayer. it is a nice idea, and if you want to try it go for it, but many have come before you trying to do similar

  13. this is an old method ... use "addForce" instead if (local bob) then { [] spawn { bob addForce [bob vectorModelToWorld [0,-200,0], bob selectionPosition "rightfoot"]; sleep 5; bob setUnconscious false; }; };
  14. also newer https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/allowService this allowService 0;
