    Arma 3 OLD MAN mission help!

    ARMA 3 OLD MAN - insurgent teams not replenishing? Reached the point where I could call in 16 rebels to attack a target, and used them to attack a heavily defended checkpoint in which they all were killed. After 5hrs in game and over $40,000 worth of equipment donated to rebels, it still says 0/16 fighters available, please help!
  2. Hi, I'm trying to find way how to assign teams/colors for squad in editor. I only found - [this assignTeam "COLOR"] ,but it doesn't work for multiplayer. Anyone knows some command?
  3. Hello everyone, I learned a thing or two for the eden editor from viewing topics and posts in this forum, so I decided to join and learn more. I mostly view videos from YouTube but it seems that I need to learn more from scripting. I placed these on the Object init to trigger a task module on 4 Laptops, but for some reason it doesn't work a new created file. [ lap1, "Get Task", "\a3\ui_f\data\IGUI\Cfg\holdactions\holdAction_connect_ca.paa", "\a3\ui_f\data\IGUI\Cfg\holdactions\holdAction_connect_ca.paa", "_this distance _target < 3", "_caller distance _target < 3", { hint "Downloading task.." }, {}, { tasktrig1 setTriggerActivation ["ANY", "PRESENT", false], hint "Task Information Recieved" }, {}, [], 5, 0, false, false ] remoteExec ["BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd", 0, lap1]; I also used this to detonate objects but does not work on another file. the created IED detonates as soon as the game loads. [ lap2, "Detonate IED", "\a3\ui_f\data\IGUI\Cfg\holdactions\holdAction_connect_ca.paa", "\a3\ui_f\data\IGUI\Cfg\holdactions\holdAction_connect_ca.paa", "_this distance _target < 3", "_caller distance _target < 3", { hint "Detonation in progress.." }, {}, { bomb="Bo_GBU12_LGB" createVehicle (getPos ied1); deletevehicle ied1; hint "Detonate Test Completed" }, {}, [], 5, 0, true, false ] remoteExec ["BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd", 0, lap2]; I truly enjoy the game and editor, but I admit in having difficulty understanding all these. Thanks in advance for all the advice and help you guys can provide.
  4. Is there a way to edit Bohemia Interactives default game modes? For example, I wanted to make a Multiplayer Advance and Secure scenario and the already implemented game mode "Warlords" covers a lot of the needed mechanics. The problem is there's a lot of extra mechanics and UI that I don't really need in the scenario and the modules don't give me enough control. I have tried using light mods like MCC but I wanna keep the mission as light as possible even if it means more work on my end. If any one can just give me A TLDR, point me in the right direction, or even tell me if whether or not what I want to do is possible that would save me a lot of time. Thanks.
  5. I want to continue my work on my PzH2000 but i just cant fix the error "Cannot generate ST - Coordinates". I already triangulated everything and did everything i found online but i just cant fix it. Maybe someone can look at the p3d and help me with it, just ask for it Pic of it

    Problem Creating unit.

    I have continuously tried creating a unit and I fill out everything that is required on the first page and don't go over the character limit but when I go to the bottom, the continue button is still grey.
  7. Title says it all. I'm trying to add proper physics to my object, and I have no idea where to start. I have been picking apart a config dump and trying things like adding simulation = "ThingX"; to my config, to no avail. I believe the problem is that the object is a Simple Object when it shouldn't be, since the object returns a zero when I try to add an action to it. If this is the case, I have no idea how to fix it as I have not intentionally programmed it to be a simple object. Any help here would be appreciated. Would this be something I need to fix in the Object Builder, an issue with the config, or what? Config.cpp below.
  8. Hey I got 4 image.paa files that I would like to add to the map as a permanent marker but unsure how to add them to my mission without a mod. I need to know how to add them via script and how to choose position and image. Not much I can find in google search. Everything is say you need a mod witch can't be true !! Any help would be amazing. Please show an example of the how to code and where it needs to be added. cheers
  9. I have been experimenting on a traitor among the group script on Mission Editor for having one random unit in the player's group suddenly joinSilent on a EAST group. I have that figured out. My problem is I want it for only when the player's group numbers is at 3 or above. Then selects a random unit in the player's group to suddenly join the EAST group. I can't get the selectRandom working on units group player since it returns as an object than an array. I don't have the units in the game variable named cause the units spawn randomly in the map. How do I have it return an array of units in player's group? waitUntil { count (units group player) <= 4 }; createCenter EAST; _virus = createGroup EAST; _playergrp = units group player; _selection = selectRandom _playergrp; _exp = _selection; _exp joinSilent _virus;
  10. I have been looking for a couple of days and I have not found anything that currently works in the @3Den editor for a demolition objective. What I want to happen: -Player is assigned task "destroy weapon cache" -Player Places charge to destroy objective -Player detonates charge -Task "destroy weapon cache" marked successful/complete - player moves to next objective. What I need: Some sort of module, task, trigger, etc. that can allow me to destroy an ammo box and complete an objective.
  11. I have dozens of units which are Slow Zombies from Zombies and Demons mod they're not grouped together. I thought of writing zombiename hideObject true; on every single one of them in the sqf file but there's a lot. I want to avoid using the show/hide module due to syncing them cause having multiple modules gets confusing on EDEN. Is there a way to list all of the zombies and then just writing that list to the hideObject code. The problem is they have different different class names. Thanks in advance.
  12. Hiya, I'm having some trouble with a script for a mission that is supposed to have a vehicle with something like a loudspeaker on it. The plan was to use TFAR for this for the cool effect of being able to actually speak through it and your voice then blaring from the car over radio and this making a bunch of civilians react in different ways. (I'm not having problems with the actual sounds and mod the problem is checking for certain conditions being met) I've found the event that I need to call to check for whenever someone transmits over a radio and set it up so that it only activates using the right frequency. However I also want it to only work when you SPEAK through the radio. There's a boolean that you can check for to see if someone is speaking but obviously if I use this in the event code it is only called once when the button is pressed. So I'm having some problems with how to implement this. Also excuse the shittily written and formatted code this has been cut and pasted through a few times so whenever I get something functional I'm gonna rewrite it a bit nicer. Here's what I got so far: radioBroadcastScript.sqf (executed in init with the argument of "230" just for testing purposes) //These first lines check for the arguments of the script. If none are added it will use the defaults. //First argument is the braodcast frequency. Note this has to be between 30 and 512. DEFAULT is 79.3 if (isNil {_this select 0}) then { _this set [0, "79.3"]; }; //Set the frequency at which the broadcast is detected on. broadcastFrequency = (_this select 0) ; //For each player in a group run the code below { //Register event to unit. This event is from TFAR and is for when someone presses or releases the radio transmit button. ["BroadcastingThroughSpeaker", "OnTangent", { //The event information. Unit object, radio object, radio type, whether it's an additional channel, whether it's a release or press. params ["_player", "_radio", "_radioType", "_additional", "_buttonDown"]; //Checks whether the button is pressed if (_buttonDown) then { //Assigns the currently used radio frequency by the unit to a variable _currentFrequency = _player call TFAR_fnc_currentSWFrequency; //Checks whether the frequency used matches the broadcast frequency if (_currentFrequency isEqualTo broadcastFrequency) then { systemChat format ["%1 is transmitting on frequency %2", name playerObject, _currentFrequency]; }; }; }, player] call TFAR_fnc_addEventHandler; } forEach units group player; And the check for whether someone is speaking is this little line here if (_player call TFAR_fnc_isSpeaking) then I've been kinda trying out a few different options but nothing really works. Also something worth noting is that this should ideally work in multiplayer. Any help would be greatly appreciated! ­čśä
  13. The gear is in a equipment storage (Plastic Case object). I have the script of the task into multiple types from uniformItems, "player hasWeapon", headgear, and etc. I want to know if there's a simpler script for the task to trigger when a specific object's equipment storage is just empty?
  14. Hello all! Now I have a tiny bit of a problem, after playing a primarily Zeus run mission with a friend, using about 16 mods, RHS, Project OPFOR, CUP, MCC and CBA_A3 to name some of them. After playing for a long while we decided to take a break, so I press escape, Save and Exit, and we quit the game, upon returning to the said game, I simply clicked on the mission, pressed Resume, loaded in the lobby, people pick their roles, and we load the game. After loading in I access Zeus to find out I can use ONLY the units that I've used in the previous session. For example, I could only use RHS Russian Cars, Soldiers, and APCs because that's all we used, but not tanks, helicopters, planes, they completely disappeared from the Zeus "Create" menu altogether! After a while I tested it out in a singleplayer scenario, if I resume a mission only the vanilla units and the units I used in the last mission are accessible to me, if I use AKs all units with AKs can be used if they are in the same tab under OPFOR for example, but that's it, everything else just disappears! Can somebody please help me this has to be the most annoying problem I've run into so far. There doesn't seem to be an obvious fix for it!

    My tools won't launch

    My arma 3 tools that I installed through steam won't launch. When I click play then select "Launch Arma 3 tools", it closes after half a second, without any error message. However, When I launch Addon Builder, it works. Object Builder and Terrain Builder say P drive is not mounted, then launches. Arma 3 publisher also seems to work without issue Is there any way to fix this? I don't want to have to install some unheard of 3rd party software. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  16. I'm making this SP mission that have dynamic NPCs spawning around the map. To optimize it for higher framerate I have made the garbage collection's minimum distance shorter. I have placed corpses all around the map for players to discover with intel for certain tasks of the mission. How do I make specific corpses not get cleaned up by the garbage collection?

  18. Thought it worked but in other computers it does not. I am using simple .paa textures via the object builder. Via the object builder I press E and I add the texture to the different components. But when turning it into a .pbo and opening it in the editor it says [path].paa not found. How can I make the game locate the custom .paa file ??? Any help is appreciated because the addon has already been released and the issue persists!!! Thankfully feedback was provided but I cannot seem to find a way to fix it. Tried changing the path to the SockWhite.paa file to the P drive or to the addon folder but nothing works. The textures are in the .pbo file but their path is not recongized.
  19. i've been trying to make a small WW2 Mission which seemed fun. I wanted 2 fireteams to suppres the enemies while unloading from their boats, and that works just as fine, i needed to set aswell god mode to the unit cus otherwise enemies will just headshot the shit out of them, so i had this code embedded into the object init of the unit 1 and 2: this addEventHandler ["HandleDamage", {false}]; but then, i didn't want them to be alive for ever so what i did was, place a trigger and whenever a BLUFOR would enter the trigger area, the trigger will activate, the activation code is this one fireteam1 addEventHandler ["HandleDamage", {true}]; fireteam2 addEventHandler ["HandleDamage", {true}]; //since fireteam1 and fireteam2 are the names of the units Tho it just gives me "Generic Error in Expression" i don't really know what am i missing in here, I really need your help. I am aswell posting some screenshots down here so you can get a better understanding of what i am having in my editor. Thanks in advance to everyone!

  21. First, some info for context: 1) I'm a scripting Noob and this is being made because of the noob perspective I hope to out grow but wish to utilize. 2) This forum is filled with incredibly talented and knowledgable people. Keep in mind many people reading these have no education at all in the subject and dont understand your explanations due to a lack of vocabulary. Now that that's out of the way! I've been browsing topics here for awhile and there are many introduction and tutorial threads available. However, as many of you may remember with your first time learning, a lot of vital information falls through the cracks that later become insurmountable obstacles filled with frustration. So I thought I'd provide the mind melting eureka information I got that solved many of my problems and hope you guys will to. Comment information, hints, and links to things most noobs miss or need to know before attempting a script of any kind. Heres mine: - Theres a huge difference between how mission editing and scripting needs to be organized and utilized between SinglePlayer amd MultiPlayer. Read this if you want to know more about multiplayer scripting (https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Multiplayer_Scripting) read this entire page start to finish and navigate hyperlinks to anything that's sus this will explain why you'll see 3 different explanations for the same problem and none of them are working for you because you dont know what a description.ext file is. - Arma3 has undergone updates to its scripting ( or it appears so) some functions you'll see being recommended to you from a youtube video from 2014 may not apply to the version you are using. This applies to the Eden editor and previous editors as well. Usually theres a link to new versions in and explanations to what changed in that functions wiki page. - You have to make your own sqf files. When you launch a mission the game will search for specific files. By naming you file that same title it will load that file in place of. Basically, its asking for butter and a song as you've labeled it butter, its gunna use it like butter. Learn all you sqf file names in the wiki. - If your using Notepad ++ there are plugins. for sqf file type that highlights relevant. variables the way you see everyone else's in videos. - half the battle is speaking the language. So click on every hyperlink presented to you and read it whether it makes sense or not. Sometimes it takes a single page to tie everything together. More experienced people please comment your own below, feel free to criticize anything I've said above, I'm also a noob. I know there is another thread for noobs (I've read it a million times believe me, I just want more posts just like it for the monkey brain level questions I have)
  22. Hello, I have seen on Google and Steam Workshop and I found something almost the same as my idea. But still not the same sadly. General info: First of all. I am not a script person so for this mission it will be impossible for me to complete it without help. (allot of help) This mission will mostly be working with script's and coding. For thows who knows how please help me/us. I can help by typing class names for all that gona be in play for this mission. This is not like Warfare or Warlord. Here the commanders must die to be victorius. Main Objective: Kill the (playable) Commander's and conquer sectors for ressources (cash). Do not die. How to play this mission: You start of as an commander for one of the sides. You will start with xxx cash (Starting founds) and will recieve xxx time cash for just staying alive. On the map there is sectors your mission is to capture sectors to get more time cash to purchase units. You will be in Zeus mode mostly of the time (reason for calling it RTS) Purchasing units and buildings. You will see that you only have xxx meters arround you were you can put down ure units and buildings. First thing you would like to do is to build a building that you can hide inside, so you are not in the opening. You will than have to purchase units to do your dirty work. You should start off by building Light vehicle HQ so you can purchase (empty)vehicle for your units. Ofcurse build a Barracks HQ to get more advanced units as-well. You will be able to see on map the enemy base is, they can see yours as-well. Once you get enugh foundings you should go to war!. Order the men to infiltrate the enemy base and find the bastard commander to kill him. When all enemy commanders are dead, you win. If you get killed and friendly commander still alive he can buy you a new life for xxx cash. But this mostly wont happen due to every commander are in their same base. (one base for Blufor, Opfor and Independent) Base area most likley 2-500m big. Template picture: https://prnt.sc/vbjuv4 - Yellow circle = Sectors - Blue Rectangle = Blufor Base - Red Rectangle = Opfor Base - Green Rectangle = Independent Base This Mission: I will need .sqf files but I do not know what kind. So What I need help with? - Cash system script //Were I can just type in class name for unit, vehicle etc... And xxx how much it will cost. - Cash engine //how to use the cash. Need building to get new units. If a commander dies than friendly commander can buy him a new life. - Build system //Start by only be able to buy Barracks HQ and Light Vehicle HQ. Than maybe an Arsenal so Zeus can research Heavy Vehicle HQ and Airfield HQ. Must have Arsenal to edit units (use arsenal on units) - Zeus Restriction's //So the Zeus cant deploy units outside Base, can only give orders outside. Zeus remote control can be acessed when buildt an Radio Tower (use arsenal to research it) Enemy units close in makes Zues unable to place units. - Blacklist for units etc. //Parrameter will be used here. Blacklist units for Faction selected on Parrameter. - Whitelist for units etc.// Parrameter will be used here. Whitelist more than one Faction for a side. - Default Faction on Parrameters // Nato, IAF and AAF. Have RHS mod? Can chose different factions. - Sector system // Make Sector a cash income and sector have guards. - Man pop limit // Make Zeus not able to spawn more than xxx total units, Vehicles and Buildings. All seperate and can edit total in parameters. (buildings have one total limit, Vehicle have one and Units.) - Heal system // In Base run Full heal script every xxx sek to heal etc units. Can use parameters to decide how long time. (This will be best if 1 minute are the mimium limit.) - Repair system // Build a Repair vehicle to start Repair script. Repairs all Vehicle and Structures after xxx sek. (Same as above minium limit 1 minute. Parameter option.) - AI Commanders // This is a LONG shoot. But when and if this is possible than I say thank you! But focus first on MP. - Every Start has same Base spot but Side's can randomly rotate on every new game. - to be cuntiniued... Mod compatible? Yes this mission should have Parrameters that makes you able to decide wich Faction Blufor, Opfor and Independent should be. (RHS mod for an example.) Weapons and items well Yes. There will be possible for some weapons. Depend if make unit's gear free or make some popular weapon mod like NIarms avaible. Work with WW2 mod? Lets just be able to finish Standard first before this point. Like this idea of mission? Now I do not know if this mission can even be built or if Server can handle it without lagg. But lets say it is possible to make this mission, than please leave a like and if you want to help me with this I will really apreciate it!!! I beleave this mission can make arma a new level of experiance. PS! Sorry for bad english! And PM me or add me on steam if interested. Regards!
  23. If anyone has played the arma 3 campaign 'resist' you know exactly what im talking about. For the rest ill quickly explain. In arma 3 resist you have a sequence in a mission in which you can choose to go a distance by foot over open ground or move to a certain location and enter an 'underground' sewer. The sewer obviously isnt underground because arma doesnt really allow that kind of stuff, instead it is a prebuilt structure, just like a house, but from the inside it feels like its underground. The way it works is a addaction command which teleports you in and out of the sewer and changes time of day at the same time so it seems like its underground. The sewer is built very well and the immersion is immense. Now to my question: Does anybody have prebuilt and/or expanded sewer from Resist? If not, does anybody have a different prebuilt sewer? And in any case, does anybody know the scripts that could be helpful to add a teleport and fadeout/fadein and time change for the object init? Reason is im trying to build a mission for the unit and id like to do something that hasnt been done a million times before. Maybe even @Kydoimos? I know you started building a whole sewer section and I was wondering if you ever finished it/have the started construction somewhere still. The new Composition feature would be amazing for this. Because yours looked realistic and i cant seem to find the right objects to recreate it.
  24. Hey there, im juan I applied the Xbox game pass perk to my account but it is not adding the items to my account. Still no items or crowns my gt is supermegajuan thks
  25. In a multiplayer survival mission I have going, I am trying to prevent my re-spawning players from simply walking up to their own bodies and looting their weapons and ammo -but- I don't want to disable looting altogether because I need them to be able to loot the enemy (OPFOR/Indep) during the course of the mission. So I tried this in an antiloot.sqf: and called it via the init.sqf....but it didn't seem to work. I'm not the best with using scripts so if someone knows what I am doing wrong or has an alternative code for preventing friendly looting i'd be delighted with any help I can get. Cheers
