Is it possible to add an action to all playable units?
Neonz27 posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGI think the title is pretty self-explanatory, but I can provide my details if they are requested. I only need the action on playable units; not NPCs. Demonstrations would be very helpful.
I am thinking about buying Arma 3, but I want to know what to do next.
fortheiy12 posted a topic in ARMA 3 - QUESTIONS & ANSWERSHello, my name is fortheiy12, and I want to become part of the 'ArmAverse' as you may call it. In the coming days, I will be buying Arma 3, but I haven't really found any good tutorials explaining how to get into Arma 3. I know that most people will tell me to go to the very detailed tutorials, but from basic FPS and Roleplay game experience, I know that single player tutorials can't explain the full scope of multiplayer concepts. I am wondering if anyone has any good recommendations on Multiplayer servers and Video Tutorials. Please feel free to reach out to me! Discord: fortheiy12#0402 Other notes: Yes, I do come from Roblox, yes I know, but I am a developer in that, and currently it's the only thing I can do to make money. I would also like to make clear that I don't want to start a Arma/Rbx war, that is not why I created this post, thank you.

I need a list of ArmA 3 servers that are great for a beginner
Raider9431 posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MULTIPLAYERSo, I have owned ArmA 3 for a while, (a bit more or less than a year, I sorta forgot...) but I haven't really played it much. I would like to play on a multiplayer server. The only issue is, I can't find any servers that are suitable for beginners like myself. Can anyone of you guys please direct me to some good beginner servers?
First weapon mod - need help to start
Tatanka88Hun posted a topic in ARMA 3 - ADDONS - CONFIGS & SCRIPTINGDear modders! I'm absolutely new in Arma modding, and I need your help to start, because I don't even know, which program to use for modifying the databases. We are speaking about Arma 3 Single player, I have the Arma 3 Tools installed from Steam, I guess, that is everything I need, since I'm about to modify only the mass of all the weapons, ammo and gear in the game. I have a collector's aproach in every game I play, that is the same thing I want to achieve here, don't want to become immortal, just want all the available stuff (Weapons, ammo, gear etc.) picked up (preferably), and not spawned in my backpack! I think, it is enough to modify only the mass of those items, so I don't have to worry about stamina etc. I have watched some tutorials, but I think they don't point me in the right direction, they try to explain how to do much more sophisticated modding, which I'm not interested in. So again, I need to modify only the mass of weapons, ammo and gear (uniforms, vests, helmets, medic/engineer etc. tools and so on...)! What files do I have to use for my mod, and how to edit them? Thanks for your help in advance, and I apologize for my bad english! :) ps.: I know, there is a Super Soldier mod by 2Fast, which can give me what I want (and much more), but it was ast updated back in 2014, and it does not seem to work with the current version. Also, if you can show me similar mods, I'll be happy to use them instead of making a similar.
What Have I Broken?
Bloodshot_Pico posted a topic in ARMA 3 - ADDONS - CONFIGS & SCRIPTINGHello, so first off I'm going to say before you yell at how stupid I may seem from what I'm about to post I want you to know I'm new to the whole ArmA modding scene. But I'll start with my problem, so basically I am planning on having a few mods separate from one another like vests, uniforms etc. And my first question is that can you have the helmets and vests separate since I've seen the .paa's and there are together within there, so I'm not sure if I can do them separately. My second question is why won't my vests mod load, I'll post code for it underneath, but basically I was getting errors etc. and I thought I fixed them but when I load into the game, it says that the mod is loaded yet there aren't any vests from the mod within the virtual arsenal, and I've removed the vests from another mod I am working on which is basically my template. But I'm guessing it has something to do with Units? (This is the entirety of the config.cpp file.) Thanks for reading and faceplaming at me. :) Thank you for helping in advance. ~Blood
Hi All, I want create single player missions with the mission editor. The editor itself is not a problem for because it's similar to OFP and Arma2. But the wounding system of Arma3 seems to be not so good. I just want few wounding effects, no complex medical system: (I have no scripting knowledge and not the time to learn from beginning, so please give me a short example for one wound effect. maybe I will understand and can continue working. I have started reading your Scripting Introduction for New Scripters) wound effects: -for all units: if hands/arms are hit more than 0.3 are hit unit drops weapons and flees maybe with this command: gethit "arms", gethit "hands", removeAllWeapons, allowFleeing -for all units: if legs are hit more than 0.5 unit fells and can just croutch maybe with: gethit "legs", setUnitPos "down" If possible: script should be started with init.sqf and a script-sqf without to much entrys in the mission.sqm and the example as primitive as possible so that I have a chance to understand it. Best regards
