  1. Hi guys, I want a trigger to be activated when the following happens: Gate1 animate ["Door_1_rot", 1] (The Gate opens) I want to use this on a waypoint so that the AI automatically drives inside a checkpoint as soon as the gate opens. I am new to editing and scripting and i have no idea. Please help me guys 🙂
  2. Hello, I have been pulling my hair out the last couple of days trying to get this to work and I seem to really be stuck here. I am using JEBUS spawn script and have it where if I capture a place from Opfor then Opfor will spawn in the town over to launch an assault. After a certain time I'd like the assault to be called off but maybe in the future relaunch. In my first trigger activating the assault from AI I have this in the condition: Blufor Present Repeatable "!alive hq1 && This && random 1 < 0.5 && Attack1Trigger" A radio message attached says that Opfor are assaulting. In the second trigger covering the same area: Variable Name: OpForAss1 Blufor PresentRepeatable Condition: this Interval: 10 (For testing purposes) On Act: Attack1Trigger = True; publicVariable "Attack1Trigger"; Timeout: 10 seconds on all 3 inputs Third trigger covering the same area: Blufor Present Repeatable Condition: triggerActivated OpForAss1 Interval: 25 On Act: Attack1Trigger = False; publicVariable "Attack1Trigger"; Countdown: 25 seconds on all 3 inputs Radio message attached saying Opfor is no longer assaulting This does not repeat whenever I use the last trigger to change the variable to false. If I'm going about this completely wrong then by all means, please show me a way that is more efficient. I've been piecing this together the last few days from different threads on the internet over different problems since I try to exhaust my resources before making a thread about it on here. Thanks for any help and sorry in advance if I start asking some basic questions after these responses. Peace
  3. Hi; I'm actually a beginner in edition Arma 3; my problem is when I define a "move" and "Trigger" for the group, they don't do exactly what I want. for example; they should stay in their position until the "Trigger" act. But they move around, this is not what I want. the second thing is when the "Trigger" acts, they don't have coherence and don't move exactly what I want. Please guide me.
  4. Hi, I have a little problem with activation/deactivation of triggers. I have 4 triggers named : trigger_1, trigger_2, trigger_3, trigger_4 (they spawn enemies). I want if trigger_1 is activated (once) all other triggers should be disabled for lets say 2 hours and then re-enabled except trigger_1. Then the same for trigger_2, etc. I tried to use trigger deactivation field of trigger_1 to disable the other triggers with enableSimulationGlobal but I should make the trigger repeatable and when I re-enable all triggers (enableSimulationGlobal true) trigger_1 will spawn enemies again which is not my intent. I hope I explained well, really need to solve this ... 😰
  5. Hello everyone, first time poster here, although I've been lurking and learning from other experienced community members. I have made a single-player mission which I'm pretty happy about the outcome. An icing on the cake would be to add radio chat between 3 entities - Player, Highway (AI) and Tower (AI). The mission is a carrier operation with 6 tasks - Take-off, Intercept Enemy Fighters, Intercept Enemy Helicopters, Destroy Anti-Air, Destroy Artillery, Land. I have created the text I wish to use in the mission but I simply have no clue how to make it appear after a certain thing has happened f.e when I fire an AMRAAM I want my guy to say "Fox Three" and when a missile hits - "Splash One!". Same thing with a BIM-9X but "Fox Two" instead as that is the correct term since it's an IR missile. List of enemy combatants: 4x To-201 Shikra (Bandit1/2/3/4) 1x CH-49 Mohawk (Condor) 1x WY-55 Hellcat (Vulture) 4x ZSU-39 Tigris (AA1/2/3/4) 3x 2S9 Sochor (SPG1/2/3) I tried compiling a description.ext script (note: I don't have actual sound files yet, I'd appreciate it if I can get an idea what Text-to-Speech I can use to make myself audio files and then convert to .ogg): And a radio.sqf script "Sleep 4" is short, it's a placeholder. I hope you can understand my query. Sorry for this really long post, TLDR: I need to have radio chat to be activated after doing a certain thing.
  6. 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";
  7. Hello BI community, I am as green as it gets with these forums, with that said I did search for relevant topics, without success so apologies in advance if I overseen a similar topic in advance, but honestly I don't even know how to query best what I am searching for. I will describe what I am hoping to achieve: I have an object, it can be anything, but in this case its a Crate. I also have a Trigger and a helicopter. The concept is as follows: The Helicopter is parked on and in the trigger. Any player can go to the box and use an addAction menu to select a Pylon Loadout for said helicopter. The addAction menu then activates the trigger to execute a code to first wipe any existing pylons and then give them the new pylons. The problem: I managed to get pretty much everything to work, expect that I don't know how to apply the code without giving the Helicopter a Variable Name or using "vehicle player". I would like to trigger to simply apply the commands to the helicopter without me specifying a Variable name, as I wish to make this trigger universal to every helicopter that lands on it, and dynamically, so if new helicopters happens to be created/purchased, that they can also use and take advantage of the feature. The code (Without a Trigger and Wipe in this case) ChangeTime = 5; this addAction ["Plyon (X)", { Delayer =[] spawn { hint format ["Changing Plyons... ETA: %1" , ChangeTime]; sleep ChangeTime; vehicle player setPylonLoadout [1, "rhs_mag_b8v20a_s8kom"]; vehicle player setPylonLoadout [2, "rhs_mag_b8v20a_s8kom"]; vehicle player setPylonLoadout [3, "rhs_mag_b8v20a_s8df"]; vehicle player setPylonLoadout [4, "rhs_mag_b8v20a_s8df"]; vehicle player setPylonLoadout [5, "rhs_mag_9M120M_Mi24_2x"]; vehicle player setPylonLoadout [6, "rhs_mag_9M120M_Mi24_2x"]; vehicle player setPylonLoadout [7, "rhs_ASO2_CMFlare_Chaff_Magazine_x4"]; hint "Plyon reconfiguration completed."; }, }]; This code will work but only if its activated and then the player goes into the helicopter, and while I am not certain, I believe it would probably also change the pylons for other helicopters that happen to be piloted by a human. Stuff that I tried: I tried using this, thislist and various other means inside the trigger but of course those target the trigger itself or create an array and setPylonLoadout needs a Object not an array. Question and TL/DR: Is there a way to apply the pylons within the trigger without given the helicopters any Variable Names? Thanks in advance and apologies if this was already answered somewhere before.
  8. Is there a way to move an object with trigger? For example, I want an object to change its coordinates when a trigger is activated. And in this trigger will be the coordinates where this object will be moved.
  9. So, I'm currently working on a mission with a fixed object to access the arsenal (ACE). This arsenal however should only be accessible to the pilots role to deliever logistics. Unfortunately there are some players in the group that won't listen to strict rules, saying that no one shall go there and access the arsenal. So I was wondering if there is a way or a script to either: a) Kill any player (except of the pilots and the zeus), force them to respawn, when they step into a trigger area or b) show only the zeus via a hint that Player1 has entered the trigger area to which the zeus can react himself. I'd prefer the killing method however. If someone has an idea I'd be happy to know and hear about it. THX
  10. I can't for the life of me figure out how to set a distance condition on the 3den Enhanced add actions. I don't want players to be able to see it from miles away as long as they are scrolling. I know it should be ran on "condition show" but I don't know exactly what to put there: Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
  11. https://gyazo.com/641c0226cab80eac03d04a2c5fed444b Above is an SS of my notepad. Trying to activate a trigger through my SQF with triggerActivated TurboBomb; Below are the settings of that trigger. https://gyazo.com/ce586674451bc34a810bb59350bb9817 I tried triggering the E2 setDamage [1, true]; from the sqf itself but that didnt seem to work.
  12. Hello, Just starting new with scripting and don't understand why this code doesn't work: File is executed but trigger is not activated: this AddAction ["Repair vehicle", "fixVehicle.sqf",{myCustomActionActivation = true; (_this select 0) removeaction (_this select 2)}]; Trigger is activated but file is not executed: {"this addAction [ ""Repair vehicle",{myCustomActionActivation = true; (_this select 0) removeaction (_this select 2)}, "fixVehicle.sqf"]; I can either just activate the trigger or just execute the file. Only one of the two ever works Thanks for the help
  13. Hello, everyone. I've stumbled upon this trouble. Trigger with condition {!alive BombCluster_03_UXO1_F} count thislist < 1 doesn't seem to activate. What and where did i go wrong? Tried putting it with quotes, yet doesn't seem to work. Repeatable also doesn't help.
  14. Well, how can I make a trigger be activated when a whole group is dead? I found this in another topic with the same question but it didn't work for me : {alive _x} count units (groupname) == 0 tks in advance!
  15. 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. ❤️

    Making a tripwire flare to trigger an artillery attack

    Well, just what the title says, I want to know if there's any way to make so when a player (BLUEFOR) triggers a tripwire flare, the AI (OPFOR) in the mortars attack the zone where the player is, with a delay hopefully. Also, if possible, make this flare defusable or destructible. These flare traps I want to use are from the RHSAFRF mod.
  18. Guys, good afternoon! (or good night or good morning :]) I have a question about how I can create a script to activate a trigger to spawn a group of enemies. I believe that to activate the trigger I have to use this script: private _trigger1 = createTrigger ["EmptyDetector", _triggerMarker]; _trigger1 setTriggerActivation ["east", "not present", false]; _trigger1 setTriggerStatements [_opfor1 = [getMarkerPos _spawnTes1, EAST, _opfor1] call BIS_fnc_spawnGroup]; _trigger1 setTriggerTimeout [10,10,10]; However I would like this group of enemies to be deleted when the player leaves the area... I keep in mind that for that I would have to use the script "this && !(player in thisList) deletVehicle _opfor1" but I don't know where I would put it this command since I didn't find anything about something like "setDeactivation". Does anyone have any idea how I could do this? I appreciate the help!
  19. I'm making a garbage man type of mission, basically you need to clean camp maxwell, the only thing I need now is to make the trigger check if everything inside it has been cleaned (basically deleted) I used the addAction command in combination with the deleteVehicle command to "clean" the objects. (also every object inside the trigger has the name rock followed by a number if it somehow helps you help me) I need the trigger to check if every object was deleted and if every object was in fact deleted then complete the mission.
  20. Hi, I'm relatively new to mapmaking and have been so far learning through trial and error (mostly error), but am currently rather stumped with a problem vastly outside my base of experience. I am trying to set a trigger to activate when players collect any 3 pieces of intel (of 6 available), regardless of the combination of intel collected. Only 3 pieces need to be found, and currently I am referencing their collection via a seperate trigger with 'thisNull objectName', as the intel is deleted on pickup, and then trying to get another trigger to check 'triggerActivated triggerName' (horribly inefficient, I know). Apologies if this doesn't make much sense, its 3am and mission making has fried my brain. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  21. Currently attempting to make a multiplayer friendly Zeus zone restrictions script. Basically, around my map, I need a kill zone that kills all units, players, or units editable by the curator, that leave the playable map area (enter the kill zone) after a ten second delay. I also need it so that if a player unit leaves the zone, they get a warning message too. I am using the "ModuleCoverMap" to show the playable area. Around the edges of the playable map area I have four triggers that start the kill script for the player/Curator editable AI. Above is a very basic (semi) working zone restriction script. Currently, if a single unit enters the trigger, the script starts running, the problem is, if another unit enters two seconds later, they only have eight seconds to leave the restriction zone, rather than the ten seconds they are supposed to have (they should be killed later than the first unit, but the two units die at the same time). Also, I am unsure how the titleText function works for clients. It says on Biki that the titleText is a local effect, however, I am wondering if there is a better function for showing a warning message.
  22. Hello, we are currently developing a Arma 3 sandbox server where you can basically do anything, the problem is, that the vehicles only respawn when they are destroyed, when someone takes a plane and lands it somewhere like molos airfield it will remain there until someone picks it up. I want that the vehilces respawn when thy are left alone but the built in feature doesn´t work at all, so my idea was to trigger the respawn like every 60 seconds that all vehicles respawn but how can i trigger every 60 seconds for ever ?!? thanks for your help Marvin Letsche Admin at German-Gamers.net
  23. Is it possible to set diesel storage tanks on fire after they are destroyed? The solution is probably pretty simple but I can't find an answer.
  24. I'm making a mission where there are 6 missions to do but I only want players to do 3 missions maximum The way I intend to do it is like so: - Every mission has an object "attached" to them - Once the players complete a mission, the attached object gets moved in the trigger - The trigger counts how many objects there are in itself and if the amount is equal to 3.. It gets activated How do I count how many objects are in the trigger and (optionally) how do I detect that a mission has been completed and activates a separate trigger? Thanks a lot ❤️ Edit 1: I found and edited a code, it works but only with units instead of objects but it's better than nothing: (count (thislist select {alive _x })) isequalto 3
  25. I'm editing a exfil but I can't figure out how to make a task appear after all 3 objectives are finished. I want it to be invisible until after all 3 objectives are finished.
