    Satchels Only

    If i wanted to make a script that requires a satchel to be placed on a radio tower to destroy it, what would be a method i could use? Basically im trying to make it so players cant just shoot it with CAS or Artillery. someone has to physically walk up and place a satchel on the tower to blow it up.

  4. I've been working on a script the last few days with the aim of spawning an enemy blackfish, having it fly to the nearest player, loiter, and start killing everything in sight. I'm making this for a CTI mission where the players are able to respawn, therefore, I want this thing to be an absolute terror for ground forces until it's destroyed. I've tried several things to make this happen. I've tried: 1) Setting the camouflage coefficient of every unit in the mission to "1", 2) Revealing all units to the pilot/group leader, 3) Setting the groups' skills to 1 4) Separating pilot and crew, where the pilot is set to careless and the crew is set to "Terminator" (a separate issue with this occurred where the gunners/crew group would reset its behavior to "hold fire/defend" even though they were set in the script to combat mode "RED". Unable to resolve that issue, I've abandoned separating the groups. Further, even when set back to RED, it isn't any more effective than having them all in one group. The pilot maintains the proper holding pattern either way. 5) Creating a Seek And Destroy waypoint for the gunner/crew group after separating them from the pilot. 6) Trying to add a "human sensor" to the radar, which is apparently a thing in Arma. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3_Sensors 7) Finally I tried setting unit state to "Aware" to see if they would enter "COMBAT" on their own when spotting an enemy, but they will not unless an enemy vehicle is present, and after the vehicle is destroyed, they usually lose all interest in Infantry. This leads me to believe that they, for the most part, just can't see the infantry on the ground, despite my attempts to make them see. Tanoa is the map I'm using for my mission so the buildings/trees/ground clutter is probably hiding most of the targets from the gunners. Here's the script so far in a mostly working configuration where the plane will spawn, fly to the nearest player, and loiter indefinitely, possibly taking occasional shots at very exposed infantry and vehicles. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ // Spawn a Blackfish to loiter around player and kill any enemies. _plane = createVehicle [(["B_T_VTOL_01_armed_F"] call BIS_fnc_selectRandom), [11567.8,3199.6,0], [], 0, "FLY"]; This spawns the blackfish itself with the variable name _plane _plane addEventHandler ["Fired",{ (_this select 0) setVehicleAmmo 1 This allows it to have infinite ammo }]; _pilotguy = [[0,0,0], WEST, ["B_Fighter_Pilot_F","B_Fighter_Pilot_F","B_Fighter_Pilot_F","B_Fighter_Pilot_F"],[],[],[],[],[],232] call BIS_fnc_spawnGroup; ((units _pilotguy) select 0) moveInDriver _plane; ((units _pilotguy) select 1) moveInAny _plane; ((units _pilotguy) select 2) moveInAny _plane; ((units _pilotguy) select 3) moveInAny _plane; ((units _pilotguy) select 0) setSkill ["spotDistance", 1]; ((units _pilotguy) select 0) setSkill ["spotTime", 1]; This chunk spawns the crew, forces it into the vehicle, and sets their skills and combat mode. group variable name is _pilotguy ((units _pilotguy) select 0) setSkill ["commanding", 1]; ((units _pilotguy) select 0) setSkill ["aimingShake", 1]; ((units _pilotguy) select 0) setSkill ["aimingSpeed", 1]; _pilotguy setCombatMode "RED"; _pilotguy setBehaviour "COMBAT"; private _markerPos = getPos leader _pilotguy; private _playerList = allPlayers apply {[_markerPos distanceSqr _x, _x]}; This bit sets up the "nearest player" part _playerList sort true; private _closestPlayer = (_playerList select 0) param [1, objNull]; _wpcas = _pilotguy addWaypoint [getPos _closestPlayer, 50]; _wpcas setWaypointType "LOITER"; _wpcas setWaypointLoiterRadius 900; _wpcas setWaypointLoiterType "CIRCLE_L"; _wpcas setWaypointBehaviour "COMBAT"; This sets up the waypoint with various specifications, possibly redundant to set the combat mode here as well _wpcas setWaypointCombatMode "RED"; _plane flyInHeight 300; _plane forceSpeed 60; _pilotguy allowFleeing 0; {(driver _plane) reveal [_x,4]} forEach allPlayers; revealing all players might be redundant with revealing all units {(driver _plane) reveal [_x, 4]}foreach allUnits; while {alive _pilotguy} do { {(_x) foreach allUnits setUnitTrait ["camouflageCoef", 1]}; the goal of this line is to have the units' coefficient revert to normal after the blackfish is destroyed sleep 10; _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thanks in advance for any help.

  10. Title explains, what I try to achieve - thing like this. Shooting straight ahead seems to work (tested with code from BI CAS module used for planes, also works with forceWeaponFire), worse with targeting at ground targets - here I encountered few issues. Heli ignores/will not change direction/pitch/aiming at doWatch/doTarget with or without target reveal (apllied to the heli, heli's gunner and/or driver), target may be allied or hostile unit, whatever. It doesn't even turn minigun turret at the target. Ignores also setFormDir. Said CAS module uses also spawned laser target object. But as soon I spawn it, heli starts to spin around: BTW Similar thing happens after using BIS_fnc_fire (action "UseMagazine" way), but some shots are fired then. Also doSuppressiveFire seems not work with the heli (pity, would be optimal for my need). If applied with position or object, heli will not shoot at it, instead will start doing flybys, like in normal attack pattern until reach some position or indefinitely. I would like to avoid using enforced ways, like setDir, addTorque or setVelocityTransformation, rather to base on AI than fighting with it. Still it may be unavoidable, since to shoot from fixed weaponry at ground level target, heli needs to dive a bit, which without invisible "helping hand" means flying forward (could be countered with setVelocity). Anyway, tested setVelocityTransformation, with partial success. This code: makes the heli turning in right direction, but the turn is too wide (why?). This from the other hand does the trick: but faster, than in 2 seconds and after few more seconds heli starts very rapidly change its vector, like crazy (why?). I have no experience with setVelocityTransformation, so I might misuse it somehow. (_gun/v1 is the heli, _tPos) - target position. I would appreciate any insight.
  11. Hello! I'm trying to make a huge and long battle, where bots dinamically creating as waves, and sometimes both sides launch artillery and air strikes to the random choosen enemy target. Method of choosing the target is simple. I set big trigger on the map (wich covering area of battle), and choose randomly as Target = list Trigger1 select _rndm;call{[Target] execVM "L39CAS.sqf"} Command DoartilleryTarget makes artillery strikes pretty easy, and i have not problems with realisation. But i can't to make airstrike; I tried to make something by this method: 1)I created mission on the VirtualReality map, and manually maked airstrike as pilot. And i wrote each "step" by this script _plane = _this select 0; _string = ""; while {Zapis} do {sleep 0.001;_arp = [velocityModelSpace _plane,vectorDir _plane,vectorUp _plane];_str = format[",%1",_arp];_string = _string + _str;}; copyToClipboard _string; This _string was copied into separate file "bombrun.sqf". It is a huge array with vectors in each part of time. Size around 240 Kb. 2)I set trigger with activation "Radio Alfa", and initiation. It must run the script, when palyer witch into binocular on the tank or building, and call airstrike by radio call{[CursorTarget] execVM "L39CAS.sqf"} _target = _this select 0; _pos = getpos _target; _posA = getposASL _target; _h = (_posA select 2) - (_pos select 2); _ha = 500 + _h; _y = (_pos select 1) - 5000; _x = _pos select 0; _pl = [[_x,_y,_ha], 0, "CUP_O_L39_TK", EAST] call bis_fnc_spawnvehicle; _plane = _pl select 0; {_x setBehaviour "Careless";} foreach crew _plane; call{[_plane] execVM "manevr.sqf"}; _grp = group driver _plane; _wp = _grp addWaypoint [[_x,_y + 5000,_ha], 0]; _wp setWaypointType "MOVE"; [_plane] spawn {sleep 29;while {true} do {[_this select 0, "CUP_Vmlauncher_S5_veh"] call BIS_fnc_fire;sleep 0.02}}; [_plane] spawn {sleep 28;while {true} do {[_this select 0, "CUP_Vacannon_GSh23L_L39"] call BIS_fnc_fire;sleep 0.05}}; sleep 60; {deletevehicle _x} foreach crew _plane; deletevehicle _plane; Sub-sqript "manevr.sqf", wich forces plane to make writed manuver _plane = _this select 0; _array = call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "bombrun.sqf"; _count = count _array; _m = 0; hint format ["%1",_count]; while {_m < _count} do {sleep 0.001;_vel = (_array select _m) select 0;_dir = (_array select _m) select 1;_up = (_array select _m) select 2;hint format ["%1",_array select _m];_plane setVelocityModelSpace _vel;_plane setVectorDirAndUp [_dir,_up];_m = _m + 1}; 3)I run this on the Virtual Reality map. And it's working pretty well on this map. Each time created planes hit the target, choosed by player with binocular. 4)I copied it to the mission on Altis. And it is not work.Plane just shaking a little bit, but flying straight forward. What's a problem? I'm not very experienced in the sqripting, and i can miss thothing in the command behaviour. Thank you for your attention and help!
  12. Download: MIL_CAS - Dropbox/Armaholic Description: MIL_CAS is a simple script to allow a mission designer to use the vanilla CAS Module in-game via scripting. All this does is perform the required actions to properly call BIS_fnc_moduleCAS. Best suited for ambience, the strikes shouldn't be relied on for 100% accuracy. Features: - Position and approach heading can be defined. - Plane and type of CAS to be provided can be defined. To use: - Copy the file MIL_CAS.sqf to your mission folder. - Run the script using: - nul = [_position,_direction,_vehicle,_type] execVM "MIL_CAS.sqf"; - _position - array - position for CAS to strike - _direction - number - direction for the CAS to approach on - _vehicle - string (optional) - default: "B_Plane_CAS_01_F" - classname of the plane to fly CAS - _type - number (optional) - default: 2 - type of CAS to be used - 0 - Guns - 1 - Missiles - 2 - Guns & Missiles - 3 - Bomb - Examples: - nul = [getPos player,240] execVM "MIL_CAS.sqf"; - Wipeout will fly in for a "Guns & Missiles" run. - nul = [getPos player,240,"RHS_A10",3] execVM "MIL_CAS.sqf"; - A-10 will fly in and drop a single bomb. Credits: - This uses the vanilla function BIS_fnc_moduleCAS for the actual CAS. All I did was make an easy way to launch it from a script. Media: Everyone knows what CAS is all about, but here is all four types being called in anyway (0.52): If anyone finds any problems please let me know. Thank you.
  13. Hello, i'm very newbie at scripting and stuff i wanna make some kind of CAS/Arty ordenance by pointing at the target (By binoculars for ex) or by putting the Mouse on the map i wonder if there is a function or a way to get that working, i know it exists cuz for example at the Campaign there is a mission when you point at the target or use the map to request mortar fire thanks in advance
  14. Introduction ITC Land Systems is a mod that aims to adds depth and realism to arma’s aircraft, with the main focus being fixed wing aircraft in the ground attack role. Update V1.8 Update V1.7 - performance, usability, reliability Changes: https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/215419-itc-air-systems-v16-fcr-mavericks-new-mfd-system/?do=findComment&comment=3298124 Update V1.6 - Major overhaul Fully interactive MFDs Sensor slewing system(including HMCS) Realistically configurable JDAMs(programmable fuzes & impact angle) Selectable Nose/Tail fuzes Ripple release for bombs Air-Ground Fire Control Radar Realistic physx based autopilot Rover TGP video feed Realistic targeting for mavericks TGP Infrared marking laser Steerpoint system for navigation and targeting Expect new documentation on the github wiki soon https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=I7_3CVfOZKc Hotfix V1.51 Fixed a GBU-12 guidance problem Fixed a config inheritance issue Update V1.5 - Two seaters and Bomb rippling It has been a while, but here it is, v1.5 Changelog Two seater compatibility Bomb ripple releasing Known issues Waypoint autocycle sometimes may not work properly with paired releases, as the second bomb will release before the waypoint is cycled. Two seater system The two seater system comes in the form of a scripted system that lets the WSO and pilot share the pilot's TGP, and a system that synchronizes the steerpoints between the two users. The WSO camera can by default be opened with left shift + down. Bomb ripple release In V1.5 you will be able to ripple certain bombs, both guided and unguided. If your bomb can be rippled the settings for it will show up in the WPN page when it is selected. Ripple-able bombs include dumb bombs like the mk82, but also guided bombs like the JDAM. The ripple system will also let you automatically cycle waypoints every time a bomb is released. Future plans This update came a little slower than the previous ones, but worry not, my work itself has not slowed down. I have started shifting attention to a new project. For some sneak peeks feel free to join the discord. Update V1.4 - Pylon/Bombs Drag & Weight, SADL Datalink messaging, Fuel consumption indicator Hotfix V1.351 V1.35 Mini-update: Laser codes, GBU-12, APKWS, Laser Spot Search Laser Spot Search & Track The laser spot search feature has been overhauled. Previously it would just find the nearest laserTarget object and lock on to it. In its current form, when you enable Laser Spot Search, the pod will start scanning in its currently set direction and field of view for any laser with the desired code. While searching the TGP will say LSS on the right side. When it finds a laser, the TGP will start tracking it, and will say LST on the right side. Update v1.3 - TAD, SADL, TGP ITC_Air base-classes & Compatibility UPDATE V1.2 - MFDs, Compatibility, LJDAM Contents Here are some of the core features of the mod. To view the full contents of the mod, view the documentation. Rover Munitions WP Smoke Rockets GBU-38 JDAM Steerpoints ITC Aircraft comes with a steerpoint system to help users navigate, target, and communicate locations. Steerpoints are stored in the ACE Microdagr waypoint list, allowing players to easily create them from the microdagr. Alternatively steerpoints can be generated from the current TGP position with a hotkey, automatically saving them as a microdagr waypoint with the naming scheme “Mark n”(number). Targeting HMCS: Pilots can use a hotkey to lock the TGP to a position they are looking at with their HMD. Steerpoints: When switching steerpoints, the TGP will automatically lock to the position of the selected steerpoint. Radar: Pilots can use a hotkey to lock the TGP to the location of a vehicle currently locked by the radar. IR Marker HMD & TGP Compatibility Requirements CBA A3 ACE 3 Included Aircraft The mod’s features can be configured for any aircraft, but by default it works on 2 standard aircraft and 2 Jets DLC aircraft. All of our mod’s aircraft are custom versions to ensure the mod is always kept completely optional. All can be found under NATO > Airplanes.

  15. MGI GUN RUN Last update: 01/05/2020 Hi all, Here is another script to add a specific gun run, calling a virtual or real CAS. This script is to copy/paste inside BI init CAS module. Nothing more to do! The code will search for "cannon" or "Gatling" in the pilot's weapon. So far, it doesn't work for gunners. You can see "no pilot cannon" in the sub-menu. If you find some non-listed pilot's cannon, let me know. Tips: - Always place your module/aircraft at 2 km from a target area. It's far better for a straight-in approach. You can even place them outside of the map. - Don' try to repeat the CAS too soon with a real aircraft. It will turn around the target without aiming it. Don't forget, pilots are dumb (I can say that referring to my own career). - At this time, Buzzard is far more precise than Wipeout which generously spread ammo with poor efficiency.

  16. Hi When our RTO mark a point on the map and demand a virtual CAS support plane, the plane overflies the target point and then starts to circle it arround and arround and arround. It seems that if the AI pilot can't see the target, (which is most of the time in Dakrong map), they don't drop ordnance. Does anyone know of a way to force the airplane to drop the full Napalm load on the marker point placed in the map by the RTO? (regardless of what is below the jungle canopy, either VC or a lot of innocent bushes.!)
  17. How would I be able to detect if a player throws a purple smoke and then have CAS fire on the target?
  18. I have a question regarding the new DLC Laws of War and the showcase mission In the showcase where you get to try out CAS and choose the right one without killing civilian you can choose what kind of bomb the incoming jet gets to use. For examble you can order the new cluster bomb. But i dont seem to find any way to edit the CAS module so that the selected bomb is used. I can only choose between guided and unguided. I know if you choose an non virtual CAS provider with artillery you can choose the type of ammo but why not with planes. Hope someone knows more about scripting than me or knows how they did it in the showcase. PS. I know theres a way to force the plane to use a specific kind of weapon by disabling all others but that doesnt seem to work with virtual Provider.
  19. INTRODUCTION United States Army 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment (3/75) is a community that aims to provide a realistic simulated special operations environment. The higher objective of which is to create an environment which is conducive to allow growth of its members mentally in teamwork, leadership, and morality. SPECIAL RECRUITING POLICIES Should any new members join the unit and bring with them two or more friends that complete RASP, we will allow one of the group members to be authorized a meritorious promotion to the rank of Private First Class. The group members must decide who among them shall receive this meritorious promotion. Should the members not agree then no meritorious promotion shall be authorized. This promotion does not come with a guarantee of a leadership billet. Additionally, If six or more members of a group complete RASP, one of the members is authorized meritorious Specialist and one member meritorious Private First Class with the same guidelines of selection as above. No other meritorious promotions are authorized. Veteran's Experience Program (VEP): We give back to our Veterans and Active Duty for their sacrifices to their countries. Be sure to ask us about our VEP Program. Be prepared as we check a sanitized DD-214 (or similar OCONUS document) for entry into the Veteran's Program. After completion of the Ranger Assessment and Selection Program (RASP), Veterans will be implemented into the unit as a Specialist (E-4). The 3rd Ranger Battalion has many Veterans/Active Duty among the ranks, who contribute from their personal experience towards Training, Tactics, Discipline and other Attributes. This makes the unit the creditable Realism unit that it is today. Delayed Entrance Program (DEP): If you don't know if Realism is for you, then consider our Delayed Entrance Program, where you get membership for two weeks as a Recruit to follow us in operations, and the ability to attend our training events to get a feel for how we do things in our unit as a Realism Unit.

  21. Hello, I can't seem to find a way to make my OPFOR jets attack BLUFOR infantry. I use this: { if (side _x == west) then { _laserT = createVehicle ["LaserTargetE", [0,0,0], [], 0, "NONE"]; _laserT attachto [_x, [0, 0, 0]]; _cleanUp = [_x, _laserT] spawn { waituntil {!alive (_this select 0)}; deletevehicle (_this select 1); true }; }; } forEach allUnits; To no avail. Any ideas? Thank you, _SCAR
  22. Hi, I hope this DLC wiil give us some improvements for the firing system of all Arma aircraft. I have on mind the fact, the CAS support is absolutely inefficient. Jets manned (by player) are focused on maneuverability and radar/targeting acquisition. But, please, keep on mind that full AI jets should be efficient for supporting players. And this way isn't evident till yet. The CAS module is poor, not to say rotten. Players should ORDER a jet firing at any target, or even ground position, regardless of knowledge about enemy or any target or some weird consideration. The Arma engine doesn't have to decide for a player the opportunity to fire or not a bomb on a position. In other words, let the player decide to order a bomb release where he wants, when he wants, against who/what he wants, even on empty places or at sea. Right now, try to order an unguided CAS on any point of Tanoa forest, take 3 coffees,... abort. Frustrating!
  23. Hi all, Among the most used modules, I guess plenty of scriptwriters would like to have better results with support ones. - First of all, for all support modules, virtual support is an acceptable alternative as far as you accept to spawn/delete a unit for a task. Artillery disappear as soon as the last shell is shot, regardless of the trajectory ETA; So, there is a bullet coming from a null object, traveling the map and never mind the shooter. Script with that! - For all modules again, the "real" unit option allows more immersive condition as far as you have to protect this asset. And, then one thing is absolutely missing, the condition fields for enabling/disabling the support. You can't imagine the lines I had to write just because I decided only a radio equipped guy could call artillery. Try it!.. grab a radio backpack (or any radio), (enabling the link between requester and provider), then drop the radio (disabling the support), then grab/drop... Oups that doesn't work anymore, except if you write something bis_fnc_addSupportlink and bis_fnc_removeSupportLink (So many hours to find that!). So please, add enable/disable condition fields for support. About CAS support, so much things to improve: - Please, make unguided bombing run workable on any surface, with no objective underneath! I mean bombs must strike the marker position, like a GPS release if you want. That's all! No need to have something special. Actually your BIS_SUPP_LASERTGT, laserTargetE or laserTargetW types, along with a "destroy" waypoint, doesn't work on Tanoa forest for example. And please, don't explain we need an object objective... Let's the player bombs where he wants! - Furthermore, your FSM just take driver into account. That means there is no chance at all to get CAS from a crewed aircraft (pilot/gunner). So, bye bye so many CAS aircraft from UNSUNG DELTA mod: Intruder, Skywarrior, F4 Phantom... Please make unguided bombing CAS firing on any position of the CAS marker and make all CAS aircraft workable what crew can be. - lets the player choose the number of bombs to be released! About helicopter transportation: - First problem: the map can't be zoomed in/out for marking destination. You have to cope with your last map zoom before the call?!? - then, you can't alter your destination underway. I wrote a script to be transported in any AI manned vehicle (car , helicopter), with instant destination altering or cancellation. (MP compatible). Code on demand. So please, make transportation module (not only helicopter) more versatile, with alter/cancel destination, and correct the map zoom bug. Thank you for your attention.
  24. The Lowlands Warrior team has started a side project based on SimCentric's FST 'Fires & Strikes' for VBS3. With the real life knowledge and experience about Close Air Support and Groundbased fires we decided to push this project in order to give the community something that brings them closer to reality. What does it do? The endgoal is to have an external application aswel as an ingame UI to control Close airsupport and artillery according to NATO standard procedures. Aircraft will fly realistic attack paterns and can loosly interpet your 'talk ons' What will the first release be able to do? We plan on having a simple in game UI where the most essential items can be filled in and strikes will happen accordingly. Type 2 controls, Grids, final attack headings, weapon type, egress headings and cleared hot calls. How can you help? We know how it works in real life. And we kind of know how we want to make it. We have OK scripting experience but we are looking for master scripters!
  25. Incon Airpower Script package for Arma 3 mission makers that allows players to call in air support for target tracking and precision air strikes. Unlike other CAS scripts, Incon Airpower simulates high-altitude strikes where the aircraft is neither visible nor audible from the ground. As such, the aicraft itself is not spawned, only simulated, thereby avoiding all the hassle of Arma's pilot AI. Works best in single player and low-player-count COOP (lots of players using tracking may cause considerable server lag). Perfect for missions involving SF teams working behind enemy lines to call in coalition airpower onto enemy assets (as in the ongoing real-life operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq / Syria). SP / Co-op / Dedi compatible. Requires CBA. Features Call in guided airstrikes with the radio menu Mark targets with laser, smoke, chemlights or IR strobes (night only for chemlights and strobes, day only for smoke) Aircraft can lock on to and strike multiple targets simultaneaously (thanks to a slightly modified version of kylania's awesome guided missile script) Optional collateral damage assesment by pilot - checks for nearby friendlies, civilians and sensitive targets and will automatically disengage if collateral damage is too high Optional full NATO voice procedure simulation to guide pilot on to target No need for map with airstrip or adding in any aircraft Restrict JTAC capabilities to units with certain items in their inventory Optional unit tracking on map, with accuracy that degrades with overhead cover, weather etc. (only shows targets that would be visible from overhead): - (optional) restrict to units with UAV terminal only - differentiates between friendlies (blue), unarmed infantry (white), armed infantry (pink), civilian vehicles (white, large) and non-friendly vehicles (pink, large) If using a laser designator, the player can mark multiple targets at once and give clearance for a simultaneaous strike: - mark 2 tanks and an infantry patrol, and the aircraft will track and engage those targets simultaneously, even if they move - repeat your last mark if in doubt - if your final target is a laser mark, the aircraft will engage your laser mark while it is active, and revert to your original mark position if it looses your laser mark Realistic air speeds of ordnance: - the higher the altitude of the aircraft (recommended at least 3000m), the longer the ordnance will take to hit the target - missiles will travel faster than bombs - ordnance speeds based on real data Usage License GNU V3 Submit pull requests, fork your own version on Github, drink Bailey's from a shoe, do whatever.
