  1. Hi all i have this script i use to spawn a heli, and it land at my location like planed But how do i make so that a trigger fires when i get inside the heli. i have tried with COND: BOB in P3REndHeli. also COND: BOB in EndHeli. but no joy, anyone got some ideas. Cheers Play3r private _P3REndHeli = createVehicle ["B_Heli_Transport_03_F", getMarkerPos "HeliSpawn", [], 0, "FLY"]; createVehicleCrew _P3REndHeli; _P3REndHeli setVehicleVarName "EndHeli"; systemChat str _P3REndHeli; private _LandingPad = "Land_HelipadEmpty_F" createVehicle position player; _waypointPickup = group driver _P3REndHeli addWaypoint [position _LandingPad,0]; _waypointPickup setWaypointType "SCRIPTED"; _waypointPickup setWaypointScript "A3\functions_f\waypoints\fn_wpLand.sqf";
  2. Hi. There's a two issues I'd like some help with for a KP Liberation mission I've created for the Chernarus 2020 map: 1) I want to add an oil rig as a factory. I've added the factory marker in the editor as below where I've experimented with changing its height. However, when I play the mission on the server and enter the capture zone, the bar just fills up blue with no AI spawning. I've only managed to spawn AI twice: once in mid-air where one died and the others vanished and another where a BTR-80 was in the water. Would I need a separate script that kicks in just for spawning OpFor AI on the oil rig? In the second screenshot there's respawn positions that came with the composition which I normally delete before saving. Can they be used instead? 2) I'd like to have active/dynamic playermarkers back just like in this thread. If you unPBO the mission, there's a GREUH_playermarkers.sqf file which I gather must be what I'm after. However, in the Parameters screen it's something that's only available under the GREUH player menu not KP Player Menu but GREUH doesn't work. How do I enable it for KP Player Menu? I know this can cause issues but for my mission I'm not using the Steam Workshop version and instead using the mission.sqm and all the folders/files in Missionframework from the GitHub site. I have also asked on the Discord channel (KP DEVELOPMENTS -> # kp-liberation) but unfortunately no one could help. Although someone did suggest because it's a composition rather than a single 'asset' (i.e. a house) I'm using and/or being on the water this might be what's causing the first issue? I have asked on the KP Liberation thread as well as the Discord server but unfortunately no one's being able to help so far. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello i am newbie to scripting and arma3 editing and i can't find an answer to this: I spawn a group of AI infantry and a truck (will be 2 IFVs when i get it to work) then set the waypoint so the AI infantry group board the truck. I had no success yet. The AI infantry group move then stand still near the truck and do nothing. I would be glad if anyone can tell me what i am doing wrong. This is the code for the truck: And this is the code for the infantry group:
  4. What does this script do? This script spawns random reinforcements (group from 4 to 10 men) of the desired faction at the given position, and they will automatically redirect to players position (at the moment of script call, as Last Known Position). Does it work in multiplayer? Yes, it works in MultiPlayer and SinglePlayer Parameters _faction → String → Faction (see below) _sideReinforcements → Side → Side of reinforcements of which can be → west, east, independent _spawnPosition → Position → Center position of where you want to spawn reinforcements _rangeOfSpawn → int → Range of spawn from spawnPosition (if you like to narrow spawn just set this as 1) _addVehicle → Bool → Add a support vehicle Do you think side can be redundant? Maybe, but faction has been added secondly as I didn't want plain CSAT reinforcements when I'm playing on Livonia with Specnaz units, you know? I know not all RHS units have been added, I probably will, no guarantee. If you do script, you can.. Just look at the code, it's easy. Supported Factions SUPPORTED VANILLA FACTIONS: BLU_F NATO (standard) OPF_F CSAT (standard) IND_F AAF (standard) BLU_T_F NATO (Apex, pacific) OPF_T_F CSAT (Apex, pacific) IND_C_F Syndikat (Apex) BLU_W_F NATO Woodland (Contact) OPF_R_F Specnaz (Contact) IND_E_F LDF (Contact) SUPPORTED MODS FACTIONS: rhs_faction_usarmy_d RHS USAF (USA Army D OCP) rhs_faction_usarmy_wd RHS USAF (USA Army D UCP) rhs_faction_usmc_d RHS USAF (USA Army D MARPAT) rhs_faction_usmc_wd RHS USAF (USA Army WD MARPAT) rhs_faction_msv RHS AFRF (Russia MSV EMR) rhs_faction_vdv RHS AFRF (Russia VDV DES) rhssaf_faction_army RHS SAF (KOV Digital) Tban EricJ Taliban Units Edit: Added Syndikat faction IND_C_F (26/02/2022) How do I call the script? Let's say I am a BLUFOR player and I call for reinforcements, just put the following line in a activation trigger line: ["BLU_F", west, getMarkerPos "spawnMarkerPoint", 1, true] execVM "reinforcements.sqf"; Let's say RHS AFRF (Russians) enemy called reinforcements instead, those reinforcement will proceed to my position to engage: ["rhs_faction_msv", east, getMarkerPos "russianReinforcementsSpawnMarker", 1, false] execVM "reinforcements.sqf";

  5. What's up, everybody. A simple and Controlled Spawn and Waypoints (CSWR) solution where groups of units and vehicles will be randomized through marks in your mission. Faction Spawns: Manually define which marks the faction can use as a spawn point. You can create a lot of spawn points for one or more factions. Once the spawn points are created, the script will spawn the groups randomly through the faction spawns. There is no re-spawn. Death is death. Destination / Waypoints: Manually define which marks will be used as waypoints. There are 2 types of destinations: those that can be visited by everyone; and those that only a specific faction can go to. Once the destinations are created, the script will take care of taking (or not) the groups there, randomly. Group Members: Manually set the number of soldiers, who they are, who belongs in each squad, even vehicles. There are 3 infantry and 3 vehicle templates to customize: light squad; regular squad; heavy squad; light vehicle; regular vehicle; and heavy vehicle. Strategy: Manually define how many groups, what type of groups, if they will spawn chill or already aware, running etc. It does important you as editor set the movements through the field each group can consider randomly. Dependencies: None 😉 Download: - On Github: https://github.com/aldolammel/Arma-3-Controlled-Spawn-And-Waypoints-Randomizr-Script - On Steam Workshop: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2740912514 - - - - - - - - - - - Changelog: Feb, 22nd 2022 | v1.5.5: news, fixes and notes. Known issues: - Sometimes the vehicles are spawning in the same spot, making them blow up, even the group creation using findEmptyPosition. - In some cases, some vehicle stops to create a new waypoint, standing still at one of their destinations. Expected behavior: never stops to create a new move. Missions using this script: Fake SDF in Syria: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2728537885
  6. What does this script do? This script creates a minefield with a random number of mines and IED, positioning them in a random way inside the given area. Does not include APERSTripMine (mines with cable) Does it work in multiplayer? Yes, it works in MultiPlayer and SinglePlayer Parameters _area → Marker → Set a marker area with the size you like in editor _minMinesCount → int → Minimum number of mines you want in the area _maxMinesCount → int → Maximum number of mines you want in the area How do I call the script? Just get into your init.sqf and place it like this, has to be server only. If you have multiple minefields you have to add multiple lines with each marker and number of mines. if (isServer) { ["MarkerName", 10, 30] execVM "randomMinefield.sqf"; }; Next improvements - Will use marker position and specified range manually instead of marker size which is not very handy. randomMinefield.sqf //Uncomment following if used as function //params["_area", "_minMinesCount", "_maxMinesCount"]; //Uncomment following if used as script _area = _this select 0; _minMinesCount = _this select 1; _maxMinesCount = _this select 2; _minesArray = ["ATMine","APERSBoundingMine","APERSMine","IEDLandBig_F","IEDUrbanBig_F","IEDUrbanSmall_F","IEDLandSmall_F"]; _minesCountInArea = random[_minMinesCount, _maxMinesCount/2, _maxMinesCount]; _areaDimensions = getMarkerSize _area; _minesPositionRange = _areaDimensions select 0; _counter = 0; while { _counter < _minesCountInArea } do { _randomPosition = [[[getMarkerPos [_area, true], _minesPositionRange]],[]] call BIS_fnc_randomPos; createMine[selectRandom _minesArray, _randomPosition, [], 0]; _counter = _counter + 1; };
  7. Hello everyone, I've created this 2 scripts/functions because I was bored to find (for an hour) and kill the last enemy in a sector to get control of it, even though I had a hundred allies in it. I recommend to use both scripts as functions and not scripts, because both can be called multiple times and having functions can be a lot more handy if you guys are scripting. Does it work in multiplayer? Yes, MultiPlayer and SinglePlayer. What does this script/function do? This script accepts 2 parameters: - Position (center position of the sector) - Range (Ellipse range in meters) It calculates (by counting infantry of each side inside the sector) which side is owning the given sector and returns it as text. How does it calculate the infantry inside? It calls a second script which is getUnitsCount. This script can be also called by itself if you need it somewhere else, it accepts 3 parameters: - Position - Range - Side → of which you want to get the units count inside the area. If AI vehicles are inside the area, crew will be calculated. getUnitsCount returns the sum of the units, therefore an integer value. Return values - "west" → If BLUFOR are owning the sector; - "east" → If OPFOR are owning the sector; - "independent" → If Independents are owning the sector; - "civilian" → If no-one is owning the sector, which means not a single west, east or independent unit is inside the area, therefore civilians own it or it's currently contended (same units for each side) How do I call the script? [_positionParameter, _rangeInMeters] execVM "getCurrentOwnership.sqf"; How do I use it in a trigger? Simply put a trigger with the following condition, obviously on the right hand side instead of west you can use civilian, independent or east if you'd like to check if the given side has ownership of the area. It can be also called from other script if you like to do so. Make sure the trigger is ServerOnly!!!!! ([_positionParameter, _rangeInMeters] execVM "getCurrentOwnership.sqf") == "west" ----------------- SCRIPTS ----------------- getUnitsCount.sqf //Uncomment following if using as function //params [ "_position", "_distance", "_side" ]; //Uncomment following if using as script _position = _this select 0; _distance = _this select 1; _side = _this select 3; _infantrycount = 0; _countedvehicles = 0; _vehiclecrewcount = 0; _infantrycount = _side countSide ( [ _position nearEntities [ "Man", _distance],{ !(captive _x) && ((getpos _x) select 2 < 100) }] call BIS_fnc_conditionalSelect ); _countedvehicles = [ ( _position nearEntities [ ["Car", "Tank", "Air"], _distance] ), { ((getpos _x) select 2 < 750) && count (crew _x) > 0 } ] call BIS_fnc_conditionalSelect; _vehiclecrewcount = 0; { _vehiclecrewcount = _vehiclecrewcount + (_side countSide (crew _x)) } foreach _countedvehicles; //Return value (_infantrycount + _vehiclecrewcount) getCurrentOwnership.sqf //Uncomment following if using as function //params["_position","_range"]; //Uncomment following if using as script _position = _this select 0; _range = _this select 1; _westCount = [_position, _range, west] call OFF_fnc_getUnitsCount; _eastCount = [_position, _range, east] call OFF_fnc_getUnitsCount; _indeCount = [_position, _range, independent] call OFF_fnc_getUnitsCount; _result = 0; if (_westCount > _eastCount && _westCount > _indeCount) then { _result = "west"; }; if (_westCount > _eastCount && _westCount < _indeCount) then { _result = "independent"; }; if (_eastCount > _westCount && _eastCount > _indeCount) then { _result = "east"; }; if (_eastCount > _westCount && _eastCount < _indeCount) then { _result = "independent"; }; if (_eastCount == _westCount && _westCount == _indeCount) then { _result = "civilian"; }; _result;

  9. Hey, I'm new to coding and mission editing in Arma, so please go easy on me. I'm attempting to create a template of sorts to build future missions out of, I want to have a clean, easy & modular spawn system that can be easily tweaked for different scenarios, I also want to do this without mods. I am aware of 2 main ways of handling spawning AI, "createUnit" and "BIS_fnc_spawnGroup" I'm not exactly sure what is best for my specific use case, and I'm not entirely sure how to use either of them properly. Essentially what i want to do is have a trigger spawn multiple units of my choice on a marker and then have the units move towards another marker, I also want to be able to modify the behavior of these units (ex. start on limited speed.) I have tried a few different methods to achieve this, these are the issues I'm having with each: With "createUnit" the only way i have found to spawn multiple units is to repeat the code over and over, I'm sure there's a better way to do this and if so I'd love to know. Also with my current setup i have to repeat the domove code for each individual unit, I would also like to know if there is a better way to do this. Here is the code located in the triggers "On activation" field: With "BIS_fnc_spawnGroup" I'm not entirely sure how to order the units spawned within to move towards a marker, I would like to know how to do this, and I also read somewhere that the group will not be automatically deleted when all units are dead so I added a line at the end, I have no idea if it works though. Here's the code for that from the triggers activation field: I read that createUnit is better for performance when paired with the sleep command, however i have no idea how that works, and I also have my doubts, at-least with my current code repeating the same lines over and over for each unit seems very inefficient, the BIS command seems much cleaner however i don't know how to issue a move order with it which is my main problem. Additionally i would like to setup a headless client but that's a whole different topic and I don't want to draw this out any further, though if you feel like you have some useful advice on that please do share. Thanks and any advice & methods is appreciated. ❤️
  10. Hi all, Here is a new module in MGI Advanced Module addon, for spawning any groups you want, any time... (done) This module allows: - to spawn any group, even customized, on any side, - spawning on multiple possible areas (triggers) - with a wide randomized choice or a very specific group. You can place several modules on the map, each of them have their own parameters; 1. Choose the side (applies to all groups spawned from a module, no matter the initial vanilla side). So civilian units can be aggressors. 2. decide if you want to spawn: * at total random (so the groups are picked in cfgGroups, but for the side you chose (normal limitation) * at randomized or specific faction(s) . They must exist in cfgGroups (not all factions from cfgFactionClasses are available for groups). All factions (cfgGroups) are available so not depending, here, on the final side * You can filter these first possibilities by the type(s) of groups. For example, "infantry" and/or "motorized" and/or "armored"... But, these types must exist in the cfgGroups. * you can choose to spawn a specific group (from cfgGroups).. or even an array of units, vehicles... or even an edited group (with all customized textures, pylons, loadouts...) * linked group(s) on module, customized or not, will be candidates for spawning. That's fine for spawning not existing groups such as air or sea patrols. 3. Choose the attitude: behavior, combat mode, formation... 4. choose the repeat sequence (limitation and delay) 5. decide on what condition groups module can spawn (not only at start, but any time!) 6. decide for a simple task (or not). Chase players, enemies, defend... 7. run a code for each group (useful for specific task) MODULE(S) IN 3DEN - Position/ area of the module(s) if no synced trigger area. Direction of the module, in 3den, is the direction of the group (if no synced trigger area) SYNCED TRIGGER AREA(S) - The position, area and direction of the module doesn't matter any more. The group(s) are spawning at randomized positions in randomized trigger area(s), with the direction of the trigger area. SYNCED UNIT(S) - In 3den, you can place (customized or not) group(s) with the module(s). No matter if you synced one (leader or not) or several units of a group, with the module. The group will be candidate for spawning. PARAMETERS SIDE - Definitely the side of your group(s) for this module. No matter the choice you did (edited group, chosen faction(s), or type(s) of group or group(s)..) What ever you spawn we belong to this side. --> But, if you let the module at full random (no synced group, no, faction, no type, no group), in this case, the randomized group is picked among the native possibility from cfgGroups. So, if you just select a side (say EAST), you'll spawn randomized groups(s) from OPFOR. HOW MANY GROUPS - The number of group(s) to be spawned at each occurrence. Randomization will depend on the possibility of what you want to spawn, so your choice) Min 1 max 12 (limited for performance saving when spawning heavy customized groups. Feel free to add other modules) NOTE: The modules works with edited groups or existing configs/classes of groups in cfgGroups (see config viewer from console). So, scripted groups have always the architecture: configFile >> "cfgGroups" >> "side" >> "faction"* >> "type of group" >> "group" ... then units/vehicles for each group Example: side like "Indep" , faction like "IND_E_F", type like "infantry", group like "I_E_InfSquad" FACTION(S)* - If empty, no filter about them. If filled without any more details (type(s), group(s) ) all available factions in cfgGroups can be used to spawn any child type, then any child group. But ⚠️ all current faction names can't work. Some existing factions in cfgFactionClasses are not present in cfgGroups. For example: "CIV_IDAP_F" (IDAP civilian faction has no group) or even "OPF_V_F" (Arma Viper) can't work in the architecture of cfgGroups. (for Viper, the only group defined in: configfile >> "CfgGroups" >> "East" >> "OPF_F" >> "SpecOps" >> "OI_ViperTeam" exits. So at faction level, there is nothing to do). You can fill the parameter with a working class like: "OPF_F" , or the config (configfile >> "CfgGroups" >> "East" >> "OPF_F"), or an array of these possibilities. Not case sensitive. TYPE(S) - if more a filter about what you want to spawn. That should be simple as "infantry" or " motorized or mechanized" or "armored". That doesn't. Even in Arma vanilla, you can find exotic classes as "motorized_MTP". Any dev has his own mind to sort the groups by types. The reason is probably the way you can find sorted groups in 3den's right panel. But, it's just impossible (or needs an updated list of hundreds of names) to filter groups easily. You have to do that job, if you want to do so, writing a config or a class or an array of that, for filtering the type(s). Not case sensitive but do not make typo's error! If wrong, there is no more filter. You can fill the parameter with a working class (not the config) like: "specops", or an array of these possibilities. SPECIFIC GROUP(S) - a step more for less randomization. You are at the group level. As factions, you can fill it with class (of group) or config or an array of these possibilities. Much more, you can add arrays of units/vehicles class(es). That's also a way to customize some groups, but one the contrary of synced edited ones, you'll not able to define appearance for vehicles or pylons payload at this moment. RADIUS AREA - radius of the module area, so the spawn area if no synced trigger areas. Useless if any trigger area synced. GROUP(S) DIRECTION - orientation of the module in 3den (shift mousse drag) . Do not write anything on field (it's a result, not an entry). Useless if any trigger area synced. GROUP(S) SKILL - As 3den, skill for whole group, with +/-10% randomized on each units. ENABLE DYNAMIC SIMULATION - As in 3den. See Biki for detailed explanation (recommended) CONDITION FIELD - checked every 2 seconds. So, much more convenient than a simple condition of presence at start! Feel free to do what you want but return a boolean. Examples: * spawning only at night : sunOrMoon < 0.5 * strengthening weakened side : INDEPENDENT countSide allGroups < 3 * waiting for more players : count allPlayers > 2 * even checking for 1000 m distance at least from any player: private _possAreas = _logic getVariable "possAreas"; (count allPlayers > 0 && allPlayers findIf {private _plyr = _x; _possAreas findIf {_plyr distance _x#0 < 1000} == -1} == -1) but that will not despawn or hide or disable the groups! See the dynamic simulation instead. REPEAT OCCURRENCE - the added times for re-spawning the same groups (not at the same place) . 0 means no more occurrence. -1 means infinite repeat. So if you want to spawn 3 times a group, set it to 2 (1 shot + 2 added) INTERVAL FOR REPEAT - A delay between 2 consecutive spawns , if the condition are met. If not, the spawn will wait for condition to be TRUE, then spawn, then wait for interval duration, then check for condition... min 30 sec max 2 hours. FORMATION OF THE GROUP - As usual. Sometimes this setting is reinitialized to default wedge. I didn't identify why. So check twice before OK button and save scenario. BEHAVIOR - (or behaviour, sorry) Same as usual COMBAT MODE - same as usual SPEED MODE - As usual. same little problem as formation. Check twice. INSIGNIA - I hope that works fine everywhere... CODE FOR GROUP - Blank of any code (without {}). Passes parameters are <group> <<leader>, <vehicles of the group> . For example, just write: params ["_grp","_lead","_vehs"]; private _wp = _grp addWaypoint [<aPosition>,0]; _wp setWaypointType "MOVE"; _lead forceFlagTexture "\A3\Data_F\Flags\Flag_red_CO.paa"; {_x setFuel 0.2} forEach _vehs No bracket, just like this. BASIC TASK - can be: * Do Nothing (the preferred one of dumb AIs) * Attack nearest known enemy. So the group will start after an enemy knowledge acquisition. Not before. I hope I managed air assets for chasing air assets... I can't imagine infantry running after a jet. * Chase nearest enemy. Same as above but the position of nearest enemy is known (for spawning attack waves for example) * Attack nearest Player (known enemy) . The group must acquire the detection of a hostile player. * Chase nearest player (enemy). The group will start the hunting on player's (updated) position. * Defend this area. some SAD waypoints in the area of the group(s). known difficulties - Mods like Unsung or CUP or RHS (all in fact) requires a sharp attention for the name of the factions/groups but also Types... of groups. You can't imagine hundreds of names for stupid things like "infantry" "armored" "mechanized" ... That should be normalized, but not! - Too many mods, even non used by mission, but just loaded on server (so ticked), will affect the randomization for nuts, and lead to unwanted results like Arma or CUP units during Unsung play. know bugs all corrected so far To do list: - respawn without delay on whole group death - add a filter for mods... A lot of work. Enjoy! All feedback welcome. [RELEASED]
  11. Hello everyone! I haven't been active for a very long time. Now I am back and I need your help. I have downloaded a ready MP/Coop Mission - Rush Redux on Tanoa by OPTiX. Since we are a small community on a private server, I need to make this mission better playable and it needs to be agains AI soldiers, so my friends and I can fight them and still finsih the main mission by completing the objectives. This is possible by destroying the MCOM's when playing on the OPFOR side because if you spawn as a BLUFOR player, the enemies will simply show up, fire upon you and your squad mates and not attack the objective. So the gameplay would be pretty boring. That's why I am going to remove the BLUFOR playable units. I have tried using THIS example with the script in the description, including my own config lines of the enemy soldiers, but it didn't work, showing me that ")" was missing on a line in the main script: { if (_Spawntarget distance _x˃_Deletedistance) then {deleteVehicle _x;}; } forEach units _EditGroup; } foreach (allGroups select {side _x == _Spawnside && (_x getVariable ["spawned",true])}); And because it didn't work I tried with A.E.S (Ambient Enemy Spawner), but the enemy soldiers spawn around me very rare and too late, and it's always laggy as hell. I have tried different options in the main module, but I wasn't satisfied with the results. Other than that, I would like to use a simple script, may be like the first one above, in order to place down custom AI units, not only Vanilla, so I can put enemies from any mod I would like to use, and I need to make a stable version without any lagg while playing. What would you recommend me to do? May be put some units around the map and automatically spawn them on me when I start playing, but the thing is that the player always starts on a different random location and can spawn in the HQ or in a vehicle. If I want to use custom enemy units I guess I will have to use a config line to get them working. Please, give me some advices, scripts or suggestions how to accomplish this task. I want the enemies to hunt down the players. Thank you in advance!
  12. Hello everyone! I read a post by another user and felt the need to finally give back to the community. I give to you functional HEMTT Movers and SAM trailers. these 3 addActions allow players to tow and un-tow SAM trailers. Works on dedicated servers too! Semper Prorsum! Steam Workshop Demo Mission initPlayerLocal.sqf Thank you Larrow, pierremgi, and Davidoss . For me to be able to read someone's request for help and know what needs to be done before I even open notePad. Is all thanks to your tutelage. Both directly and indirectly through your extensive posts helping others. I am in your debt, thank you.
  13. I have a spawned boat that i spawn a ammobox (rhs_7ya37_1_singl) and i attach the ammobox to the boat, but if i sit in the boat i 1' person the box disappear but if i look thru 3' person the ammobox is in the boat. can anyone help me to find out what i can do so the box is visible i 1' person also Cheers
  14. Sup! I want to ask what do you think about these two blocks of code, performance wise. It's a 'side process' on client that fires an event on a dedicated server. My first approach was using a spawn-while-loop, but after some research (https://ace3mod.com/wiki/development/arma-3-scheduler-and-our-practices.html) I want to try another approach. I'm using CBA_A3 by the way. Using spawn-while-loop: // from some other piece of code --> fwp_saveInterval = 30 [] spawn { while {true} do { ["FWP_EH_serverUnitSave", [player, getPlayerUID player]] call CBA_fnc_serverEvent; // skip interval sleep fwp_saveInterval; }; }; Using CBA_fnc_addPerFrameHandler: // from other piece of code --> fwp_saveInterval = 30 fwp_clientAutosavePFH = [ { ["FWP_EH_serverUnitSave", [player, getPlayerUID player]] call CBA_fnc_serverEvent; }, fwp_saveInterval, [] ] call CBA_fnc_addPerFrameHandler; Thanks in advance 😄
  15. Made a mission like always. Hosted a listen server. My friends join the lobby. We start. Im on the ground as a soldier like normal. Friends are seagulls above their soldier. The ace nametag thing above the soldiers says "error: no unit." I have like a thousand hours in the editor and I have never run into this problem before. My own troubleshooting: I turned respawn off, since seagulls come with the respawn, it still happens. I started up a second instance of arma from my own pc and joined to rule out if my friends had other versions of something, it still happens. When the non-host comes to the point where the map should be visible before mission start, it says "could not connect to the positioning system" or whatever, but all the soldiers I placed have a map so it's like they don't get their gear even. Im thinking maybe something just glitched tf out and I should try to redo the mission with a fresh start. Anyone have a clue? Mods used: CBA ACE3 ALIVE TFAR RHS ASR_AI Kunduz. SOLVED When using doStop in MP on playable characters, all except the host become seagulls. This happens in total vanilla too. I sent a bug-report to BIS.
  16. Hello everyone. Let's say I'm running a mission that currently has over 1000 running scripts (diag_activeScripts#0 > 1000): for"_i" from 0 to 1000 do { [] spawn { while {true} do { for "_i" from 0 to 50000 do {true} } } } Each iteration of every script requires about 20 ms to complete, which is well above the scheduler's execution time limit (3 ms). This practically means that if my game is running @60 FPS (16.6 ms per frame) and I have a script at the 1001st position in the queue, it will be executed at least over ~17 seconds later! And this is just the first iteration of my script. There will be a ~17s delay between each iteration. This is only a stress test of course, but still I'd rather my scripts were executed ASAP. I don't mean like 'call', because my scripts are way too demanding for calling. They have to be executed in the scheduled environment. I can think of a dirty method (using a perFrame eventHandler, and executing the code bit by bit), but I was hoping for a more straightforward solution. Does anyone know a way?
  17. Hey guys. Does anyone know a way to "call" a function/script from the scheduled environment? In other words, let's say I've already spawned a script: 0 spawn { call MY_fnc_TEST } Any function called inside this script will obviously get executed in the scheduled environment (canSuspend). But I want it to get called in the unscheduled environment. One way I know is to do something like this: 0 spawn { OnEachFrame {call MY_fnc_TEST; onEachFrame ""}; } which is quite awkward. Plus the function will not get executed before the rest of the script (it gets called in the next frame). This can be verified using: AAA = 1; 0 spawn { onEachFrame {AAA = AAA + 1; onEachFrame ""}; AAA = AAA/2 }; This gives AAA = 1.5 instead of 1. Does anyone know a better way?!
  18. Hello friends! A couple of days ago I've ran into some trouble I couldn't solve myself, and I found help here very fast. Right now, I'm at the point where I'm unable to find a solution for some sort of problem, again. What I'm trying to achive, is to spawn a vehicle - the AWC 302 Nyx (Wiesel), to be exactly - with alternate, official texture. The Nyx features the standard AAF-Camo, and alternatively an simple Olive-Camo. Since I'm making a own verison of DUWS - many of you will know what this is -, you will also know how those vehicles do spawn: Go to the headquarters, talk to the officer, choose the vehicle, spend the credits, and the vehicle will spawn outside of the HQ. Heres a little insight of how I try to spawn this vehicle with the alternate Olive-Camo: case 18: { if (commandpointsblu1 >= 28) then { hint "Vehicle ready !"; commandpointsblu1 = commandpointsblu1 - 28; ctrlSetText [1000, format["%1",commandpointsblu1]]; _vehic = "I_LT_01_AA_F" createVehicle _spawnPos; _vehic setObjectTexture [0,"Indep_Olive"]; _vehic setObjectTexture [1,"Indep_Olive"]; _vehic setObjectTexture [2,"Indep_Olive"]; _vehic animate ["showTools", 1]; _vehic animate ["showCamonetHull", 1]; _vehic animate ["showBags", 1]; _vehic animate ["showSLATHull", 0]; } else { hint "Not enough command points"; }; }; If I do place the vehicle in 3den-Editor, change it's visuals like the camo, SLAT-Armour, camonet etc., and then export it, copy paste it somewhere, the Olive-Camo is defined as "Indep_Olive", like above. Exported stuff looks like this: _veh = createVehicle ["I_LT_01_AA_F",position player,[],0,"NONE"]; [ _veh, ["Indep_Olive",1], ["showTools",1,"showCamonetHull",1,"showBags",1,"showSLATHull",0] ] call BIS_fnc_initVehicle; Of course I already found out that this won't work with SetObjectTexture, unfortunately. The vehicle does spawn with all the extras like SLAT-Armour, tools, but with missing textures (At least this showed me, that it somehow works). I then tried different things to achive my goal, changed something here and there, tried to find the path to those textures, etc. Funny enough: It's possible to use this code instead of the old one, and spawn the vehicle with all the extras and the correct textures. Bad thing is, It's spawn behaviour is totally different and all over the place - sometimes even glitches into the HQ. Results in apocalypse. If I'd use the new code instead of the old one, it'd look like this: case 18: { if (commandpointsblu1 >= 28) then { hint "Vehicle ready !"; commandpointsblu1 = commandpointsblu1 - 28; ctrlSetText [1000, format["%1",commandpointsblu1]]; _veh = createVehicle ["I_LT_01_AA_F",position player,[],25,"NONE"]; [ _veh, ["Indep_Olive",1], ["showTools",1,"showCamonetHull",1,"showBags",1,"showSLATHull",0] ] call BIS_fnc_initVehicle; } else { hint "Not enough command points"; }; }; It's a long and already ungrateful journey, and I don't know where else to look, what else to do. If there would be someone to point me in the right direction, or is able to make a functioning code of the examples above - old code or new one, doesn't matter as long as it works and the spawn behaviour is correct and identical to the old one, I'd - again - be more than very thankful. Hope to hear from you folks, enjoy your time! Regards, MajorBlunderbuss.
  19. So I'm new to the Arma III editor and I'm wondering what script would I use to despawn AI after it completes a waypoint? The context is that I want a helicopter to perform a set of tasks, but then have its final waypoint move far out of view, despawning completely after reaching that far-out move waypoint. If anyone is able to answer this it would help tremendously!

    Force Groups Spawn

    Hello to everyone from the community! 🙂 I would like to ask for a script that: - creates groups of units by force (from sqf file) and WHEN a trigger is activated and its condition is met. My idea is to: 1.create a group in the EDEN editor and give the unit a callsign X (for example); 2.force spawn the same group when a condition is met in my trigger (it must not exist until this moment, OR be invisible); 3.use the sqf file to check if the ENTIRE group is eliminated and forced respawn it again; 4.have another script from another trigger which could stop spawning the group when another condition is met (for example a visible timer reaches 0 second - such scripts could be used when the player awaits reinforcements and must hold a position for certain time). Here is everything again: [trigger is activated and spawns the X group] ---> [the group is eliminated - checked by the sqf file that also spawns it again] ---> [use a no matter what condition in a 2nd. trigger to stop the respawn /a timer is preferred/] Thank you for the help in advance and cheers! Edit: additional question - can I use multiple groups named X_1, X_2, X_3 etc. and also use multiple sqf files with similar names that work as the first file, only for the next X groups that follow? 🙂
  21. I need a easier way to spawn random units instead of individually pulling all classes from the in game editor and pasting it while adding quotations and commas like this: ["B_mas_med_Army_ENG_F", "B_mas_med_Army_EXP_F", "B_mas_med_Army_GL_F",]. I want to use a script that when called it will pull a random unit from a given side of a given type (infantry, land, air) and spawn them in a group. The group will be filled with random units. I also want it to pull units from mods that I download. I dont want to have to keep updating the script every time I download another unit mod. The mod MMC sandbox has no problem in doing this but I dont know how they did it.
  22. Hello, community. - I want to create a task in the middle of a huge town. The type of the task is not important. - We all know I can simply place enemy units... and even if I use waypoints, they will be very predictable and I will almost always know their possible location and position. - For this reason and in the interest of the dynamic and immersive gameplay I am seeking, I wish to use some kind of a script that would randomly "choose" dynamicaly generated spots and positions and will spawn these groups somewhere around, let's say around the objective in a hidden marker area. - In order to achieve this I could probably create and name the groups first and use their tags in the script that is going to spawn them in this area. - The other possible way would be to include units' correct editor names (classifications) and spawn all of the included units, but this seems to be more difficult to accomplish. So, what would you suggest? As always, thank you in advance and cheers! 🙂
  23. Hello, community! I have seen such a script, but I can't find it anywhere: - the player needs to complete multiple tasks; - he's debriefed by his HQ and must open a local map (EDEN item, placed on the map); - when he interacts with the map, a map is opened all over the screen; - all tasks are visible on this map as flags; - the flags' markers change its size (grow a little) when the mouse marker is pointing at them; - during this action a text with description is shown next to the current flag marked; - when you click on the flag, you will be teleported to the location; - I want to use the script on the VR map for testing and then move it to the mission's map; - I want another such map asset (item) to be temporary spawned next to me (near player's new location) after being teleported, so the player can go back to the HQ debriefing area, once the task is completed (the player will be allowed to do that only when it's finished /this is not a mandatory condition/). | The second possible variant is just another copy of the map item at the specific task location, but the condition with the task completed must be "true"; - I want the task to be activated, when the player is just spawned and teleported to the task's location, so I guess I will have to put a trigger there. Thanks for the help in advance! 🙂
  24. Greetings everyone, could you help me pls with that build. I'm a rookie in Arma 3 Editing. I'm just want to do dynamic AI take off from STRATIS AirBase and after take off they moved to Trigger who delete them, and repeat this every time in Scenario. Could you steer me in the right way to build this. Thanks. What i did. First: MultiPlayer ModuleRespawnVehicle_F - connect to My Vehicle names FBH - AI unit get in - MovePoint to Trigger {deleteVehicleCrew _x} forEach crew; deleteVehicle FBH;}, and they don't respawn, bacause Trigger delete them forever. And i'cant find any replacement to this function for my build. And second : i dont know how to respawn units. Please treat with understanding.
  25. Hello, community. I am working on a Coop mission, where I have placed 3 playable units. I will perhaps add more later, depending on my later ideas. They all (including me - the player) need to be able to pick up an item (a specific bagpack - ace_gunbag_Tan). I have placed this object on the ground and I am the only one who can pick it up right now, but it is an important item, being also a protective gear. 😄 So, when I or the other players pick up the first object, the same object should respawn on its previous location after, let us say, 10-15 seconds. It should respawn exactly X times, according to the playable count of units. How do I achieve that? Thank you in advance and cheers! 🙂
