  3. For the sake of performance, things are fairly simplified, though we did upgrade it a few years ago. Things generally work as you would expect, helicopter > vehicles > infantry (its not that simple just to be clear). Each unit type has their own stats such as damage per hit, accuracy, fire rate, and a bonus "critical hit" chance and damage modifier to simulate things such as grenades / AT / guided missiles and such. Any fight could go either way, but these values are weighted in a manner that makes them favor a realistic outcome. It's also important to remember that unit damage persists between battles, so an armored unit can't just slam through infantry group after infantry group all day long.
  4. It would be possible with further updates, but the feature is not included in ALiVE today. I'm also without knowledge on how dynamic pylons work so I'll leave that question to someone else.
  5. That line would set the forcepool to 20. You can grab the current forcepool using [ALIVE_globalForcePool,"BLU_F"] call ALIVE_fnc_hashGet
  6. Pathfinding is disabled by default and should be considered experimental in it's current state. Probably not the best idea to use for your weekly ops in it's current state. Updates have been made and will continue to be made for improvements to be seen in future updates.
  7. free time and a thousand pings to @HeroesandvillainsOS
  8. I will blacklist your steam ID from using alive menu
  9. Waiting on one more fix, and possibly two more indexes before a release is posted.
  10. Stand by for a fashionably late answer.

    Sorry for the late answer, I don't really check these forums anymore. There is a way to programmatically sync modules, but the modules would need to be specifically setup to accommodate this behavior and thus will not work in their current state. However, you can manually add the loadout manager action via code. _someVehicle addAction ["Access Loadout Manager", "[nil,'open', _this] call SpyderAddons_fnc_loadoutManager"]];
  12. You have always been able to set insurgent weapons using static data. Follow the static data example from here: http://alivemod.com/wiki/index.php/Custom_Blacklists But use this text for your static data file instead: if (!isServer) exitWith {}; waitUntil {!isNil "ALiVE_STATIC_DATA_LOADED"}; ALIVE_civilianWeapons = [] call ALIVE_fnc_hashCreate; [ALIVE_civilianWeapons, "CIV", [["hgun_Pistol_heavy_01_F","11Rnd_45ACP_Mag"],["hgun_PDW2000_F","30Rnd_9x21_Mag"],["SMG_02_ARCO_pointg_F","30Rnd_9x21_Mag"],["arifle_TRG21_F","30Rnd_556x45_Stanag"]]] call ALIVE_fnc_hashSet; Change the faction and weapons list as needed
