    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Doing some more work for 1.22.8. Fixing some errors in the artillery system (some mods have weird ammo configs). Also polishing transport request system for players.

    Good point! On a side note, in 1.22.8 the cargo system can be activated for recon missions as well. That means you should be able to make your troops use helicopters more often that way too.

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Although these are interesting ideas for a game mode type of add-on, it's not really in my plans to add advanced behavior like that. Right now AI commander does use Evac helicopters for retreat and has a whole withdrawal behaviour already integrated. Special forces also already have these kinds of missions. As for reinforcements that use helicopters to insert troops, I might eventually add that in the NR6 Pack but I didn't so far because I use this script in a Milsim unit where not all factions we are against have helicopters to use (like ISIS for instance) so reinforcements would never come by air. Plus there's also the fact that inserting heavy tanks will rarely be possible since only a few helicopters can do that. There's also the fact that if I wanted to use planes for that, non-vtol airplanes must land on runways and although I've tried for very long to add useable runways that are not part of the map, they only work partially (AI will land but won't takeoff from them). In the next update however, as a player you can now request air support, infantry support, armored support and helicopter Transport support (also valid for Evac). I hope these features kind of fill that function but like I said before if I start making more advanced stuff it won't be under Hal since this is strictly an AI commander. It would be under another add-on.

    I do have a reinforcements script. It simply spawns them though instead of bringing them in via helicopters. As for AAA, you could try adding some mobile AA in the reinforcements pool to have them come back and be assigned to various positions by the AI commander. In the next version of that script there is also a condition that makes sure no players are too close to see it happen.

    Hetman does ID units automatically (pretty well too). However, for more complex roles it is ideal to configure it yourself (especially sci-fi mods). Configuring it comes down to adding classnames to arrays defined in the usage guide. It can be somewhat lengthy but can work alongside the auto mode so you only have to configure the more advanced units.

    If you place mortar or helicopters under HAL control, they should be used automatically. Check the config variables about dispatching ratios if you want leaders to have a higher tendency of dispatching helicopters. It's called "RydxHQ_MARatio". With it you can choose what kind of engagement the Leaders will use.

    NR6 PACK - HAL Artificial Leader Evolved

    Finishing a new tool I've added in the pack. Instead of only having a unit.sqf I've also added a preinit.sqf. Any code there will run before the initialization of objects meaning that if you want to have a few empty arrays (like the cargo only array) you could place them there and use "RydHQ_CargoOnly pushback (group this)" to add new instances into that array at anytime and directly in the init of the unit from the group you want to include. This really speeds up setup over having to name all of your squads to put them there.

    Unfortunately, Hal does not support anything over water. However, you can tell the system to use only air or land cargo if you want to enforce a method of transportation for them to get to the objective (make sure the transports are available and controlled by Hal). Additionally, the AI commander will dispatch armed transport helicopters or attack helicopters to cover infantry when there is a threat (as long as you gave him helicopters to control.) With the player actions you can even request air support and the commander will attempt to dispatch what he can to your position as long as you have a knowledge of the enemy around you (your character must have spotted something nearby). As for making them hide, by default Arma AI usually takes cover but it is also possible for Hal to order a squad to withdraw if it knows that the squad stands no chance against something like a helicopter. This is mostly based on commander personality so if you want this to happen more often I would play around with those settings. Lastly, transportation is also dispatched according to the threat so during a big firefight don't except to see helicopters pick up or bring anyone (except for Evac). If they do bring people they will try to drop them before the hot zone but generally will avoid going altogether.

    NR6 PACK - HAL Artificial Leader Evolved

    While I work on the mod port, I will soon release the script version of the NR6 Pack 2.00. That one should not contain any expected bugs. Alongside, I will release a collection of compositions you can use as templates for using Sites, Reinforcements, Spawn points, etc.

    I am also making some last changes for 1.22.8 and releasing it soon.

    WIP RELEASE POSTED! This is heavily under construction but I'm posting it so you can follow the progress of it. This pack also has the new simple mode. Simply place the leader module, sync the simple objectives you want to that leader module and it should work.

    NR6 PACK - HAL Artificial Leader Evolved

    WIP RELEASE FOR NR6 PACK 2.00 Here is the link for the work in progress version of the NR6 Pack 2.00. A lot is left to be done and most of the modules that have been added will get UI overhauls as well as proper icons. This link will be updated as more work is done. Please do not report on the bugs you encounter that are not purely linked to HAL (no module or NR6 Pack related errors). The pack is still under construction and at its current stage holds various errors (Front and Ammo Depot modules dont work for instance).

    That's the magic. It's kinda hard to explain but basically it only caches everything for players and their client. The AI on HC and server ARE NOT cached fully (just the normal ZBE) so battles still happen normally but not for a player who is far away. That also why unfortunately it only works on dedicated servers. Basically battles are local on server and HC but not on player clients or for flying players since they need to see vehicles.

    HETMAN - Artificial Leader [NR6 Edition]

    Progress on the NR6 PACK mod version continues. HAL is almost done and I've added a big new feature for non-big boss operation. Each Leader can now be set to Simple Mode which effectively removes the limitation of 4 objectives. On the mod, you will simply have to place as many objective modules as you would want and sync them to the Leader module. The Leader will then function in a sort of All At Once mode where you can set the max number of objectives to capture at once. This should replace the need to use Big Boss if you do not desire to coordinate various leaders or use the auto map objectives features of BB but still want the Leader to capture as many objectives as you give him.

    Yes HC should help but if there's tons (300-400 AI) present on map, client FPS will drop regardless if there is an HC is on or not. A HC will only offload AI processing from the server to itself but player clients will still have their game generate the physical presence for the AI unit running around. This cache works in a way that completely disables simulation for said AI and hides them making it as if only whats around them existed in game (only happening on player clients so that the AI on HC and server function as normal). This new cache helps only player client FPS and not server side FPS. The latter can benefit from HC so using both is the ideal situation especially now that HAL is HC compatible.
