  1. ADV - ACE CPR Giving you a second chance if your everyday CPR doesn't do squat. My community and I had a serious problem with the way ACE handles its CPR. If you're playing with ace_medical_enableRevive=1 you might have found out that CPR practically does nothing as long as your patient has no pulse (i.e. is in the revive state). You would need to use a Personal Aid Kit to revive your patient, setting all his health variables back to their start values - practically doing a magical heal with the magical wand called PAK. With adv_aceCPR you can finally use CPR to get someone out of the revive state without healing him completely, making gameplay much more interesting. After successfully "stabilizing" the patient, he/she will have a basic pulse of at least 30bpm. ACE-doctors have a 40% success rate and ACE-medics have a 15% success rate. Regular riflemen can resuscitate a patient, but they will have a much lower success rate. They can still keep the patient from dying due to an expired revive timer though. The success rate is lowered if the patient looses blood and is raised if the patient received Epinephrine right before CPR. The minimum rate is always 2%, unless the player starts with a success probability of 0 (look at "For mission builders" for additonal info). Depending on your settings (adv_aceCPR_maxTime, see below) you might be too late to resuscitate a player with CPR alone - in that case I have good news for you: With version 1.4.0 a new item has been added to ADV - ACE CPR: A defibrillator. The defibrillator works almost like the CPR action, but you have to have an AED in your inventory and it's much faster and the success rate is way higher. Using the defibrillator will induce pain to all units who stand too close to a patient when the defibrillator is used (except for the operator). You can only use the defibrillator if you're a medic (ace_medical_medicClass > 0). With version 1.5.4 I have added the option to use stationary AEDs. You can set the stationary AED objects via CBA settings. Default is Land_Defibrillator_F. You can place a stationary AED via editor or curator. Players can approach the item and use an ACE action to activate the stationary AED. By activating it they have 12 seconds to use it on any unconscious patient in a radius of five meters. After 12 seconds the stationary AED will deactivate again. I recommend using ADV - ACE Splint additionally to ADV - ACE CPR - not just because I'm the modest author, but because these two mods offer the things I felt missing in the current version of ACE³. Download: The most current version (1.5.4) can be downloaded here: https://github.com/Pergor/ADV_Medical/releases/download/1.5.4/adv_aceCPR.zip Or get it at armaholic (thanks to foxhound!): ADV - ACE CPR v1.5.4 For now I uploaded ADV-ACE CPR to Steam Workshop as well: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1104460924 Advanced Combat Environment 3 (ACE 3) Community Base addons A3 The Addon is signed and has a bikey. And of course ACE³ is needed - adv_aceCPR works with at least version 3.12.0 For mission builders: You can set the probabilities for successful resuscitation individually depending on the value for ace_medical_medicClass a player's unit has, or the time to be added to the revive timer or the duration during which CPR can still be applied successfully. The easiest way to do this is via CBA Settings ( https://github.com/CBATeam/CBA_A3/wiki/CBA-Settings-System ). Alternatively you can use the following variables in your mission: adv_aceCPR_probabilities = [40,15,5,85]; //the first entry is for ace_medical_medicClass == 2, the second for == 1, the third for regular units with ace_medical_medicClass == 0 and the fourth one for the defibrillator. So if you want to disable CPR for any player with less than ace_medical_medicClass below 2 just use something like this: adv_aceCPR_probabilities = [40,0,0,85]; The time to be added to the revive timer (+/-3 seconds) can additionally be set with this variable (default is 30, maximum is 40, minimum is 15 - if set to anything below 18 there's a chance you spend more time on CPR than you gain): adv_aceCPR_addTime = 30; To set the duration during which CPR can still be applied successfully, you can set adv_aceCPR_maxTime. (Eg. if your ace_medical_maxReviveTime is 600 seconds and you want players to only be able to resuscitate patients for 300 seconds, set it to 300. If the value is higher than ace_medical_maxReviveTime, it will revert to ace_medical_maxReviveTime). After this time you have to use AED or PAK to resuscitate a player (default is 1200). In other words: after adv_aceCPR_maxTime each CPR only adds time to the revive timer, it won't bring your buddies back: adv_aceCPR_maxTime = 300; The classname for the defribrillator item is "adv_aceCPR_AED" I highly recommend to adjust the values for adv_aceCPR_probabilities when handing out the AED. Current issues: - Unknown Special thanks: - LeWarz and the whole Spezialeinheit Luchs for playtesting - Markus from Boom Tools Filmton for his support and the AED sound! - T.Fork - NorX Aengell - DeliciousJaffa - GodofMonkeys Changelog: 1.5.4: IMPROVED: compatibility to diwako_ragdoll.

IMPROVED: replaced ace_medical_fnc_actionCheckPulseLocal with slightly edited function. IMPROVED: added chinese translation (thanks to GodofMonkeys!) IMPROVED: added stationary AED. 1.5.3: IMPROVED: isResurrectable should always return true if only ace_medical_inCardiacArrest is true. IMPROVED: removed superfluous check for ace_medical_enableRevive. IMPROVED: variables will be set to nil instead of false. Might mitigate issues. Don't know...

  2. So I decided to try and get the ammo count to show on the HUD/Weapon info panel while running ACE 3 and tried enabling the "Ammo count" option in the ACE3 User Interface settings but that doesn't seem to work. When I test it in the editor I get the popup "cannot modify a forced User Interface element". I've applied on the server and set it to override the mission and client but no luck there. Is there a step I am missing? Any help would be appreciated.

  4. ADV - ACE Splint - Fixing you up if your arms and legs go kaputt - The times are over in which you had to use a Personal Aid Kit to fix damaged arms and legs with ACE³. ADV - ACE Splint offers you an item you can use to fix damaged arms and legs. Of course the option to splint a damaged limbed will only be available with ace_medical_healHitPointAfterAdvBandage disabled. Depending on your settings an applied splint might come off again. In that case you might be able to apply it again, or have to use a new one. I recommend using ADV - ACE CPR additionally to ADV - ACE Splint - not just because I'm the modest author, but because these two mods offer the things I felt missing in the current version of ACE³. Download: The most current version (1.1.5) can be downloaded here: https://github.com/Pergor/ADV_Medical/releases/download/1.1.5/adv_aceSplint.zip You can get it at armaholic (thanks to foxhound!): ADV - ACE Splint v1.1.3 Advanced Combat Environment 3 (ACE 3) Community Base addons A3 The Addon is signed and has a bikey. And of course ACE³ is needed - adv_aceSplint works with at least version 3.12.0 Or get it at the Steam Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1291442929 For mission builders: Settings for ADV - ACE Splint can be changed with cba settings, or the following variables: adv_aceSplint_reopenChance_regular = 0; //default 30, maximum value 100 adv_aceSplint_reopenChance_medic = 0; //default 0, maximum value 100 adv_aceSplint_reopenTime = 300; //default 600 adv_aceSplint_reuseChance = 80; //default 90, maximum value 100 The classname for the splint item is "adv_aceSplint_splint" If you want to enable logging to rpt set this variable: adv_aceSplint_diag = true; Current issues: - Unknown. We don't usually play with ace_medical_healHitPointAfterAdvBandage so if something breaks I'm most likely the last person to know about it, so bug reports are always welcome.

  5. I've created a custom endgame-mission. On it I have custom selectable loadouts. I use Ace3. I have both selectable medic and engineer class. Problem is, when they respawn they aren't defined as medic or engineer by ace anymore. Is it possible to link a setvariable in to a specific item (e.g. If a player has the toolkit, he get ace engineer asset) or uniform/vest (e.g. If the medic class has a unique vest, the vest 'trigger' activation of the ace medic asset). How do I fix this?
  6. Attached items to themselves disappear after loading player in vehicle. It is necessary that the attached items are displayed inside vehicle (ir strobes, chemlights, etc...) how can this be realized?
  7. Good evening all, Like most people i have become tired of placing ACE3 modules in the editor when making my custom coop missions- Reading the framework documentation on the ACE3 website i am using ACE_SETTINGS in the description.ext but will be moving to using the ACE_SEVER.pbo with a ace\serverconfig.hpp - I will use this without forcing settings (so i can change specific ones dynamically through the lobby) In order to modify the settings from one mission to another (without redoing the code) i want to make certain ace_settings dynamic and change them on my dedicated server through the mission parameters in the lobby Reading the website gives the following example for code in the description.ext: class Params { class ace_medical_level { //This needs to match an ace_setting, this one is a "SCALAR"(number) title = "Medical Level"; // Name that is shown ACE_setting = 1; //Marks param to be read as an ace setting, without this nothing will happen! values[] = {1, 2}; //Values that ace_medical_level can be set to texts[] = {"Basic", "Advanced"}; //Text names to show for values (Basic will set level to 1, Advanced will set level to 2) default = 2; //Default value used - Value should be in the values[] list }; class ace_repair_addSpareParts { //This ia a "BOOL" title = "$STR_ACE_Repair_addSpareParts_name"; //You can use ACE's stringtables ACE_setting = 1; values[] = {0, 1}; //setting is a BOOL, but values still need to be numbers, so 0 is false, 1 is true texts[] = {"False", "True"}; default = 1; }; }; My question is - DOES ANYONE HAVE A FULL LIST OF THE ACE3 CLASS PARAMS? this would save me a lot of time messing about in the editor export section writing down the class name and variable options. Many thanks in advance

  10. Hi, I know how to add a custom ace 3 interaction by script, but is it possible to remove this action after use? And how?
  11. In the ACE3 mod, the Kestrel 4500 gadget displays us the wind speed (among other things) at our current location. By pressing Shift+K, we can then determine direction. These two parameters must go into our ATragMX in order to properly compute scope adjustments for our sniper rifles. Now...here's the issue. The wind at one location is NOT THE SAME as the wind 1000m away, at my target. Here's the scenario. This was done in the VR Arsenal. There's no wind when I first spawn into the VR Arsenal. I walk up to one of the white boxes and bipod down. I acquire one of the dummy targets 1000 meters way. I enter all needed information into the ATragMX and it tells me to zero for 8mil vertical and .29L horizontal. Okay, there's no wind...but it's telling me to zero to the left anyways. It must be the Coriolis and Magnum effects. Fine. I take aim and fire. The bullet goes way too far to the side. Why does this happen? I entered all the info correctly! I begin jogging towards my target. It turns out, after about 100 meters, the wind starts to change! It goes from zero wind to 3 dots of wind to the right! Sure enough, the wind is blowing at 3.3 meters/second all the way at my target's location. The Kestrel only gives me wind speed at my location. It says nothing about the wind 1000 meters away. How do I account for this? Is this just something I have to live with? Is it an artifact of the VR Arsenal? Why is the wind different 1000 meters away, and how can I detect this?
  12. UPDATE FOV has been reverted to vanilla standard (.25) upon common request. A seperate download for a patch for hard FOV (.5) will be available if requested. INTRODUCTION There're plenty of WW2 mods in the community (IFA3, FOW, Massi WW2 units etc). Many of them are quite well-made, however, they're rarely meant to be compatible with each other. An JS2 from IFA3 can never defeat a Cromwell from FOW mod, for example, since 2 mods use different standard of damage, armor and hitpoints for their tanks. The same goes for rifles, grenades, AT weapons, LBEs, helmets. This has made WW2 game-playing in Arma3 quite confusing for players (one K98 is much powerful than another, and they sound differently), and every community WW2 mission-maker who ambitiously wishes to use a vast content of community WW2 mods has to face the fact of in-compatibility, and has to solve the problem on his own. This calls for a set of integrated, inter- compatible community mods, where JS2 can defeat Cromwell, and all small arms use the same / compatible magazines and sound the same. I've been working alone for weeks to achieve this goal, and now it's nearly complete. There's nothing glory like new models or new planes or what, but dirty work of config files, wikipedia, re-calculation, scripts and testing. MAIN FEATURES 1.Complete overhaul of ammo config for IFA3, FOW, Massi WW2 units and IFA3 Liberation. Tanks can now shoot each other! With nice penetration and Beyond-armour effect! 2.Many minor adjustments to fix / improve / correct. Example: a.Using IFA3's M2 flamethrower no longer removes your grenade. One of a number of bug fixes for the above source mods. b.Detailed, vanilla-styled text description for all smallarms & magazines. And penetration info, if it's an AT weapon. c.Data of weapons, ammo and magazines of all mods have been re-calculated to follow vanilla weight-mass, energy-hit, penetration-caliber standard. Wanna see a fight between modern and WW2 soldiers? Now they're on the same stage! d.IFA3's built-in Alarm9k's Smarter Tanks script has been optimized to have minor performance impact in huge tank battles! AI tank crew have been trained to better use APCR rounds & autocannons as well! 3.Cross mod integration. Example: a.Magazine compatibilities. FOW guns are good with IFA3 magazines. b.Weapons, magazines & ammo of the same type share the same stats. initSpeed, mass, hit, caliber and advanced ballistic data. c.All smallarms of the same type now share the same firing sound. Each unified weapon sound is hand-picked from best quality contents of all mods. and enhanced by JSRS! d.All WW2 mods now share a same pool of combined high quaility icons, sounds and animations. 4.A customized version of ACE3. a.An improved advanced medical system. No more magical PAK! To treat a patient, restore his blood pressure and heart rate. b.Improved magazine repacking system with Cross type repacking supported. c.Working penetration-protection system for helmets and vests. Authentic bullet-proof vests and helmets! d.All WW2 smallarms are ACE Advanced Ballistic ready. Re-live your life as a WW2 sniper. e.And grenades got their ACE Fragmentation data! Not bad being a WW2 grenadier too! f.AI soldiers will shoots less straight if they're suffering from ACE pain & bloodloss. No more ironman! Shoot their legs and they'll fall down! 5.Personal addition (ideas while doing data searching). Example: a.FOW Japanese Army are now equipped with mod added Type 94 Smoke Candle, replacing their M83 Smoke Grenade. b.Clip-based (instead of magazine-based) reloading for bolt-action rifles like K98 and Lee-Enfield. SVT-40 and G43 support clip reloading too. Reload your SVT with Style! c.Improved IFA3 M2 Flamethrower. The effect is really cool (see below). Or hot. d.M1A1 bazooka is now armed with new M10 Smoke Rocket with Working WP smoke. Now your enemies will think twice before bunching in a building. e.Shoot rifle grenades with correct ammo (blanks or wooden)! Or face the consequence. (well, they will only fall off because of the penetration, and will not explode) 6.Enhanced community mods for WW2 environment. a.Crash your enemy and Gib them with tank tracks! (Powered by BloodLust mod) b.Climb walls as you like, but stay away from ones with barbed wires, they're extremely dangerous! (Powered by Enhanced Movement mod) c.Check temperature and clear jamming with Style! (Animations by Project Infinite & Sham's US Armament Pack) d.Smarter and Fast enemies! Now with CQB enhancement! (Powered by ASR AI 3 mod) e.HEAT penentration system used by RHS has now come back to WW2! (re-written from RHS & AIS script) USAGE This mod is intended to be used with following mods: Face of War: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=891433622 IFA3 Lite: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=660460283 IFA3 Liberation: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=950999958 WW2 mas units: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=690552013 IFA3 : ACE 3 Compatibility patch: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=773759919 Enhanced Movement http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=333310405 The following mods are needed for dependency: CBA A3: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=450814997 GRAD Trenches: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1224892496 Project Infinite - Inspect weapons: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=812441729 NIArms Core: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=667454606 --- (CREDITS) --- ACE3 * by ACE3 team https://github.com/acemod/ACE3 JSRS 2.0 * by LordJarhead http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=861133494 Blastcore: Phoenix 2 * by OpticalSnare http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=23899 BloodLust * by zooloo75 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=667953829 Sawn-off Shotgun * by KICKASS <Link not available> CANS -- Civilian Throwables * by Jones.S https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=898902841 Sham's US Armament Pack * by shammy2010 https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/162050-shams-us-armament-pack/ ASR AI 3 * by Robalo https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/163742-asr-ai-3/ Smarter Tanks * by Alarm9K http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?182368-Smarter-tanks-script The mods marked with * are needed for dependency, but the related file are already included in this mod.

  13. hello guys, i searched a bit but found nothing about adding more spare parts on vehicles with ACE3 mod, right now it adds only 1 wheel or spare track for every vehicle, i wish to add some more to each vehicle, and i cant do manually because they are randomly spawned. in ACE3 addon menu, under logistic, i just found the checkbox for "add spare parts", but no way to set a number or customize it somehow. thanks for any tips!
  14. Hi! I'm having issues spawning in ACE3 IED's with pressure plate activation on.

  15. An unofficial extension Workshop GitHub "War is expensive: from laser-guided missiles to large-yield bombs, getting things done can be hard on your pocket. When funds start going low and budget cuts roll in, that's when warfare becomes about improvising and being creative. Sometimes, that means dropping barrels loaded with TNT and shrapnel on refugee camps." - The Guy Who Invented Barrel Bombs (probably) Description So both in celebration of the Laws of War DLC, and Al-Assad's birthday, I've decided to give myself the challenge to make a mod which in my opinion was long over-due: the ability to deploy Barrel Bombs in ArmA 3. After about three days of intense development, it's finally ready to ship: Customize the payload according to your strategic needs, load it into a helicopter, and drop away! How to use In the editor, search for and place Barrel Bomb Dispenser (Large) in your mission. ACE Interact with the dispenser, and Prepare a Barrel Bomb. You may now select between the types of fuse (Air-burst or Impact detonation), and the strength of the payload, or how many cluster munitions will be included in the barrel. If your dispenser has enough materials remaining, hit CONFIRM. As soon as you're done, a new barrel will appear, ready to be loaded. You may also inspect any barrels and read their label in order to confirm their properties. Carry the barrel to the desired Helicopter, then Prime and load it. Keep in mind that vehicles only have a limited amount of barrels that can be loaded - all barrels take up the same space. From the Helicopter - as either the pilot, copilot, or turret-gunners - ACE Interact with the vehicle and Check Barrel Bombs. Select the desired barrel and simply hit the confirmation button. F.A.Q. Yup. Should work with all Helicopters, I reckon. You bet. Both for self-hosted servers and Dedicated, works all the same. Use this function. Start an issue on GitHub. If you don't have an account there, use the Steam Workshop discussions. If none of these methods is accessible to you, then you can reach me on Steam and yell until things are fixed. Kind of. Regardless, be careful whenever deploying over a populated urban environment, as the paramedic/journalist/child-seeking shrapnel module is currently active, and it never misses. Sorry, not at this time. Shout-outs BromA, for being the coolest group of badasses autistic losers out there. McGabe and Wronglets, for helping me test this thing. The ACE3 Team, for keeping their mod the way all mods should be: open-source and extendable by the community. Cheers, fellas.

  16. ACE trouble

    Hi. I have a problem with ACE. Arma says iam injured, but the ACE sani says iam ok. I tryed changing some of the ACE options, but nothing helps. Whats happend?
  17. hello! i really need to disable ACE3 tactical ladder, on a dedicated server environment, so keeping compatibility (i cannot for example just remove the "tacticalLadder.pbo" ). any idea how do it ? really thanks for any help !
  18. This script requires ACE3. This script uses an APEX DLC vehicle. Demonstration: https://streamable.com/nodw1 Version 1 links: PasteBin MixTape HasteBin Usage: copy-paste the script into init.sqf or debug console. Ace interact with a friendly unit and ride him. Ace self interact to get off. Notes: This is just a simple script with no customization. Feel free to use this for inspiration, modify it at your own leisure.

  19. In the editor, one can create what is essentially a whitelisted virtual arsenal box. I use this often to limit what is available to players in certain missions, and it works perfectly. However, I would like to export the "contents" of this virtual box for reasons. After poring over the Biki for some time, I can't find any commands that appear to be relevant. Is this even possible?
  20. seelenlos Slay This mod allow to kill players and ai by using the ace interaction menu -> interaction. If you want you can define a item to show up the action. This can be done by changing the respective variable in sls_settings.sqf located in "userconfig\sls\" (Filepatching must be enabled). I created the mod because some ace settings e.g. prevent instant death, ai became unconscious 50/50 and long bleedingtime create little problems in some missions. For example a special person have to die but he is unconscious and you have to wait 20 minutes before he bleeds out. This mod solve this issue. Features: - server side only mod - define item which you have to carry with you to slay someone (userconfig\sls\sls_settings.sqf) Changelog: v.1.0.0 - first release Credits: Fry & Chucky from seelenlos-Team http://arma.seelenlos.eu License: GPLv3 Download Links: - Steam Workshop - Dropbox Required Mods: ACE3
  21. Community Overview Applied Tactical is a multi-gaming community focused on tactical and team-oriented play. We expect our members to be mature, cooperative and respectful individuals who are looking to play games tactically, and are comfortable in working with others to achieve a common objective. As a multi-national community, we welcome members from around the globe, however do understand that our servers are located in North America and English is the de facto language of communication. Our ArmA 3 group hopes to offer our members tactical and realistic play without the fluff of standard mil-sim communities. We believe our member should have equal opportunity to select roles and responsibilities on a mission-by-mission basis based on their comfort level. Currently our main weekly operations begin at 2000 ZULU/GMT and 1900 ZULU/GMT when North American daylight savings is in effect. What We Offer Realistic, Varied Missions—As a tactical realism server, we do not believe in locking ourselves into one faction or conflict. In a single session, you may be playing as Soviets in Afghanistan in one mission and US Marines in Iraq the next. We built all our missions using Olsen’s Framework to ensure fluidity when joining-in-progress or spectating after death. Our missions are a mixed of cooperative and team versus team missions. Friendly Atmosphere—Members within our community tend to be laid back outside of missions. Unlike traditional mil-sim communities, we do not have set ranks and rosters; roles and duties are selected on a comfort-level basis. In addition, we treat all members equally. Officer positions are merely for administrative purposes. Members' contributions to the community are equally valued. Comprehensive Modset—We play an extremely modified version of ArmA 3 that contains weapons and equipment that covers various conflicts and eras. Generally, our missions tend to avoid equipment from the post-modern setting of ArmA 3. Mods in our modest include, but are not limited to: RHS, 3CB, CUP Terrains, ACE3 and ACRE. Strong Tactical Focus—For the most part, our community tries to play missions as realistically as possible with a strong emphasis to team-work and real-world tactics. We have a strong active and former military core of members, along with a series of optional trainings for new members to improve their tactical cohesion with the group. We require all new members to attend a one-time familiarization training course to ensure everyone gets on the same tactical page. How to Apply If you like what’s been described above, then you’re more than welcome to apply! Currently we are only accepting applicants 18 years of age and above. In addition, we strongly urge all our members to have a working microphone before playing with us. To apply, simply go to our website and register.

  22. Background I'm attempting to successfully fast-rope AI in an urban environment, which is apparently very difficult. I've already set up the helicopter with a FRIES system which works fine when used by a human of their own volition. I've done plenty of sifting through archives and people have been struggling with this for some time without a clear resolution. It would be nice to be able to make things a lot clearer here. Problems Still requires a human to use the "prepare fast rope action" Pilot does not fly low enough to successfully drop troops with their legs intact Pilot does not hover precisely where he needs to I know there seem to be issues with flyInHeight, particularly over buildings, so I'm attempting to intervene within the ACE scripts to maybe add some extra lines to really force the helicopter down. I've managed to find the deployAI.sqf script from the ACE 3 github repository, but I can't examine the operation of it much more because it references functions which I have no idea how to view. For example: [{[_this] call FUNC(deployRopes)}, _vehicle, _deployTime] call CBA_fnc_waitAndExecute; I've scanned through the entire list of functions with my addons loaded and I can't find deployRopes anywhere. With respect to preparing the fast rope system, does anyone know how I can determine what code is being executed when a human player uses this action via the ACE interaction menu? My hope is that I can find out how to trigger the same commands by script. Outcomes Advice getting a helicopter pilot to hover over a very precise spot Advice getting a helicopter pilot to hover at a very specific altitude Description of how to view functions referenced by ACE Suggestion of how to determine the "prepare fast rope" commands used by ACE interaction menu Thanks in advance.
  23. Dear Arma community, I'd like to share some of my knowledge regarding the ACE3 Sniper mechanism here. I know there's been lotta ACE3 Sniper Tutorial or Guide out there and you guys probably have been playing as ACE3 sniper for long time. But i just wanna highlight some important things that have always been forgotten by the players when they play as snipers which hinders the precision shots to be delivered. Yes, some players are still doing it wrong and their shots tend to fly too high or too low off the target :( #NoOffense Therefore, i'm trying to give you some easy instructional steps on how to play as a professional ACE3 Sniper and shoot like Real Military Sniper in Arma 3. If there's something needs to be added, changed, or fixed, just let me know. The steps written in Blue are the things the players most likely already know. And the steps written in Red are the things the players usually keep forgetting. Alright then, let's get it started now! To become a badass ACE3 Sniper, all you gotta do is follow these 12 Easy Steps: 1. Determine what kinda battle you’re going to engage & what type of shot you’re gonna take: a. MTE (Multiple Target Engagement) → this really requires fast shooting at many moving targets. “One shot one kill” shooting & Long Range Shot are not really a neccessity so Precision & Accuracy are usually less required. b. HVT (High Valuable Target) assasination → this really requires “one shot one kill” shooting! Mostly Medium & Long Range Shot are required. Precision & Accuracy are really required! c. HC (Hostage Crisis) → this really requires “one shot one kill” shooting! Short Range Shot are required (100 m below). Precision & Accuracy are really required! 2. After that, you conduct a Loadout Selection correspondig to the type of battle you’re gonna engage. While choosing a weapon, you must focus on its Precision Level (Shot Group/Shot Dispersion), Accuracy Level, Maximum Effective Range, Rate of Fire, & Damage (it must fit the type of shooting you’re gonna take). You have to do some thorough analysis on the rifles & bullet you're going to use! You always gotta measure rifle true performance by analyzing their shot-group (shot dispersion)! In Sniper World, Precision & Accuracy really matter a lot >_< Precision & Accuracy will greatly affect the Probability of Hit. You gotta understand what Precision & Accuracy really mean. The Precision & Accuracy of your loadout will totally affect your shots. There are 5 Types of Rifles (based on their Precision level) which you can choose: 1) Benchrest Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 0 MoA - 0.23 MoA (0.00 inch - 0.23 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is extremely very accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 2) Precision Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 0.25 MoA - 0.76 MoA (0.25 inch - 0.76 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is very accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 3) Sniper Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 1.00 MoA - 1.53 MoA (1.00 inch - 1.53 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 4) Designated Marksman Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 1.78 MoA - 2.30 MoA (1.78 inch - 2.30 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is pretty accurate but not good for precision shooting! :( it's good only for MTE shot. 5) Assault/Battle Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is bigger than 2.54 MoA (2.54 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is not accurate & not suitable for precision shooting at all! :( it's good only for MTE shot. Benchrest, Precision, & Sniper Rifles have small/tight shot dispersion which gives them much higher probability of hitting the target. Here's the example of Precision Rifle (with High Accuracy & Long Range Capability) in Arma 3: As you can see in those pictures above, M40A5 rifle (from Dagger mod) is insanely very accurate! At 100 m (its zero range), the 40-shot group size is very small. At 850 m (its max effective range), the 40-shot group size is still relatively small too. This is the type of rifle you wanna use to snipe in Arma 3! Here the things which are gonna affect your Loadout Precision & Accuracy (you gotta consider these while selecting a loadout): a. Cartridge & Caliber Selection - 5.56x45mm Nato (.224 cal) → for short range (100 – 400 m), has small damage (more like varmint hunting cartridge, it takes couple of shots to kill a man). It’s more like a battle-rifle cartridge but some soldiers use it as designated marksman cartridge. - 7.62x51mm Nato (.308 cal) → for medium range (500 – 800 m), has pretty huge damage (can kill a man in one shot). it fits the MTE, HVT, & HC shot. - 300 Win Mag (.308 cal) → for long range (900 – 1100 m), has huge damage. It fits MTE & HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) - 338 Lapua Magnum (.338 cal), 50 BMG (.510 cal) → for extreme long range (1200 – 1600 m), has very huge damage. It fits HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) and not the MTE shot (coz the cartridge is too heavy and the recoil is hard to control) - 375 CheyTac (.375 cal), 408 CheyTac (.408 cal) → for super extreme long range (beyond 1600 m), has very huge damage. It fits HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) and not the MTE shot (coz the cartridge is too heavy and the recoil is hard to control) b. Action Selection - Bolt Action Rifle → it mostly offers more precision and accuracy but it definitely lacks of Speed & Rate of Fire. This obviously fits HVT & HC shot! - Semi-Auto Rifle → it definitely offers more Speed & Rate of Fire but it usually lacks of precision & accuracy. This obviously fits MTE shot! c. Barrel Selection, Stock Selection, Trigger Selection → choose whatever gives you more precision & accuracy (these actually don’t matter in Arma 3 coz they come within the rifle so you can’t really costumize them, but they really matter in real life!) d. Scope Selection → pick High-Power scope for HVT & HC shot, pick Low-Power scope for MTE shot! Always use scope with Miliradian-based reticle (dont use duplex reticle coz it’s useless)! Scope with Miliradian Ballistics reticle (like Horus reticle) is even better coz you can use it to Mildot Holdover all the time very easily (no need to dial the adjutment at all). RHS Mk4 M5 scope (from RHS mod) has Horus H58 reticle which allows you to do Mildot Holdover fast without ever needing to dial at all. And Make sure the scope is perfectly zeroed at 100 m! e. Attachment Selection → Bipod & Muzzle brake is a must for Precision & Accuracy! Bipod will steady your aim & Muzzle Brake will reduce the recoil. Suppressor is optional (use it when you need to stay stealthy). f. Ammo selection → choose some Match-grade ammo (which has high Ballistics Coefficient, optimal Muzzle Velocity, & awesome Ballistics performance)! Make sure you really got the right ammo magazine loaded in the rifle receiver! Coz sometimes players mistakenly load their rifles with the wrong/different ammo (still thinking it’s the right ammo), shoot it, & then the shot trajectory becomes completely different lol XD 3. Always equip yourself with AtragMX (a Ballistics Calculator), Kestrel 4500 (a pocket weather tracker), & Laser Range Finder → These 3 items are very important to calculate the firing solution! Without them, you guys will never be able to shoot long range accurately. So always carry these 3 items in your vest or in your backpack!!! 4. Zero your Rifle at 100 m and confirm the true 100 m Zero (make sure no offset at all!) → Spawn a target at 100 m and take couple of shots at it. You’ll see your shots are low or high. Yup ACE3 100 m zero is always 0.3 Mil – 0.5 Mil low or high (depends on your current loadout) so you gotta make an adjustment for your 100 m zero by dialing 0.3 Mil – 0.5 Mil up or down and then set it as a new 100 m zero. Do this through ACE Self-Intercation menu (Click & Hold the “Left CTRL + Windows” key, drag your mouse to the “Equipment”, then to the “Set Zero Adjustment”). You gotta make sure your 100 m zero is really spot on (not high or low at all)! After doing that, i guarantee your 100 m zero will become really spot on! Lotta ACE3 players don’t do this which always causes their shots to become low or high >_< Why you gotta zero your rifle at 100 m (not at other distance)? coz 100 m zero is easy to do & very stable! 5. Measure the True Muzzle Velocity using the “Chronograph” or calculate it yourself → in Arma 3 you can use a "Chronograph" by spawning a Steel Target right in front you (at 0 m), shoot it directly and it’ll tell your remaining velocity! You always gotta measure the True Muzzle Velocity coz your Muzzle Velocity is always changing corresponding to Powder Burn Rate, Temperature shift, and the Barrel Length. Plugging the wrong Muzzle Velocity into the AtragMX will always give you wrong firing solution & cause your shots to be low or high off the target >_< ----------------> Shooting my rifle directly in front of a Steel Target will inform me about its Remaining Velocity (which is the true Muzzle Velocity) ^_^ this "Chronograph" is actually an exclusive feature in "360 Degree Training Course" mod created by Ruthberg (the Author of ACE3 Advanced Ballistics). If you really can’t measure the true Muzzle Velocity with that “Chronograph”, then you gotta find it by asking the Weapon Mod Author or using the Config Viewer in Eden Editor! Config Viewer will help you find the Muzzle Velocity. But the Muzzle Velocity you see in the Config Viewer is actually the basic MV (it only applies at 21°C). Don't forget that MV is constantly changing corresponding to Air Temperature!!! So at other temperatures higher than 21°C, the MV will shift higher than the basic MV (+1.5 mps per 1°C shift). At other temperatures lower than 21°C, the MV will shift lower than the basic MV (-1.5 mps per 1°C shift). So you still gotta calculate the True Muzzle Velocity yourself with this table: Muzzle Velocity Shift -26.55 mps -25.47 mps -22.9 mps -20.12 mps -16.98 mps -12.8 mps -7.64 mps -1.53 mps + 6.0 mps +15.2 mps +26.2 mps Powder & Air Temperature -15 °C -10°C -5°C 0°C 5°C 10° C 15 °C 20 °C 25 °C 30 °C 35 °C Note: The basic air temperature for the basic MV of all Arma 3 weapon is always 21 °C! So when the air temp is cooler or hotter than 21 °C, your MV will always shifts (as described in the table above). The average MV change (due to the temperature) in ACE3 is +/- 1.5 mps per 1°C shift. And the average MV change (due to the Added Barrel Length) is +/- 10 mps per 1 inch added barrel length. For example: You’re shooting an M24 SWS rifle (24” barrel length) loaded with M118LR ammo. The mod author of that weapon or the Eden Config Viewer said the basic MV is 790 mps (it only applies at 21 °C). While your current air temp is 30 °C. It means your current MV will certainly be = 790 mps + 15.2 mps = 805.2 mps. And if you load the same M118LR ammo into the M40A5 rile (25” barrel length), your MV will be approximately = 805.2 mps + 10 mps = 815.2 mps 6. Plug all your Rifle & Ammo Data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use) → you gotta get all these ballistics data of your Loadout from the mod author of the weapon or you can just google it! To bring up the AtragMX, you click “Pause/Break” key. Then you select the “GunList” at the bottom left corner of your AtragMX screen. Then you select “Add New Gun”. Then Add a “New Gun Name”. Then you go to the “Gun” tab in the AtragMX. Then you select M (Metric unit) at the top right corner. And then you plug-in all these things: a. Muzzle Velocity → you plug the True MV that you just measure through the “Chronograph” before! Remember MV is always constantly changing depending on the Air Temperature & Barrel Length!!! b. Ballistics Coefficient → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! (AtragMX only works with G1 BC! If you got G7 BC, you gotta convert it first to G1 BC) c. Bullet Caliber/Diameter → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! d. Bullet Length & Twist Rate → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! e. Bullet Mass → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! f. Scope Height → ACE3 scope height is always 3.81 cm / 1.5 inch g. Zero Range → always plug 100 m! ------------> 7. Measure the Atmospheric Condition using the Kestrel 4500 and plug the data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use) → To open Kestrel 4500 for the first time, click “Scroll Lock”, then press the down arrow to switch it to the “Atmosphere” page. It’ll show you these 3 things which you gotta plug into the AtragMX: a. Air Pressure → in hPa b. Air Temperature → in °C c. Humidity → in % Remember this atmospheric condition is always changing all the time so you better always monitor it with the Kestrel 4500! To keep the Kestrel 4500 opened all the time, click “Left Shift + Scroll Lock”! It’ll show up at the left bottom of your screen permanently. Yup, you can easily keep track of the Atmospheric Condition by letting the Kestrel stay open like that. Click the Atmosphere tab in the AtragMX, then select “TBH”, and then enter those 3 things into the AtragMX! ----------------> ----------------> 8. Plug all the Target Data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use)! Plug them all in the “Target” tab in AtragMX: a. Range → find it with Laser Range Finder (click “B” key and aim it at the target) b. Angle of Firing → for uphill and downhill shooting, measure it with the Protractor (click “Left CTRL + Left Shift + K” key) c. Target Speed & Direction → for moving target d. Latitude & Azimuth → For calculating the Coriolis Effect. Find the Azimuth with the compass (click “K”). The latitude for all common Arma 3 maps can be found in here e. Wind Speed & Direction → there are 2 ways to measure the Wind: - Using the Wind Arrow click “Left Shift + K” key to bring up the Wind Arrow. The Wind Arrow will show up at the upper left corner of your screen. It’ll show you where the wind actually blows. If the Wind Arrow is pointing to your right, it means the Wind is blowing to the right and your bullet trajectory will drift to the right. If the Wind Arrow is pointing to your left, it means the Wind is blowing to the left and your bullet trajectory will drift to the right. If the arrow turns out to be a White Circle, then it means there’s no wind at all. The Wind Arrow also shows you some different colors indicating different Wind Speeds (white = 1 mph ; very light green = 3 mph; light green = 5 mph ; green = 10 mph ; darker green = 20 mph ; yellow = 25 mph) based on Beaufort scale. Don't forget to convert the number from mph to m/s coz AtragMX can only use m/s! For Example: -----------> 3 mph - 8 mph Wind coming from 10 o'clock to 4 o'clock (Blowing from left to right) - Using the Kestrel 4500 Click “Scroll Lock” to bring up the Kestrel. Then click its down arrow button to switch from the “Atmosphere” page to the “Wind Speed” page. It’ll show you the wind speed (but that’s not the true wind speed you’re currently dealing with yet!). To get the real wind speed, you gotta have your Kestrel 4500 facing the wind directly! Click “Left Shift + Scroll Lock” to let the Kestrel stay open (it’ll show up permanently at bottom left corner), then you face the direction where the wind comes from. By doing that, the Kestrel 4500 will show the real wind speed. Here’s exactly how you do it . After getting the Wind Speed & Direction, you plug the data in the AtragMX to calculate its Windage value. Remember! Windage is very tricky, my friend! There are 2 types of Wind you gotta plug in AtragMX. 1. "Uprange Wind" → Wind at shooter's position (Wind that blows only around the shooter) 2. "Downrange Wind" → Wind all the way to target's position (Wind that blows between the shooter & the target) The Wind data that you got from Kestrel 4500 is actually an "Uprange Wind" coz that wind most likely blows only near you. You can only measure "Downrange Wind" with Mirage Reading (which is really hard to do in Arma 3). It means you can't really trust the Kestrel 4500 to measure the actual Wind Speed coz the Kestrel 4500 only measure the Uprange Wind :( Kestrel 4500 can't measure the Downrange Wind. So You also gotta pay attention to the Wind Arrow & the Mirage to measure the actual Downrange Wind. It's really hard to read them but if you practice a lot, you'll get the hang of it ;) Sometimes Uprange Wind could be equally the same as the Downrange Wind, but only when the map contour is perfectly flat (not mountainous at all)! If you're shooting in a mountainous area, the Uprange Wind & the Downrange Wind will always be different so be careful. Here's some trick to estimate Downrange Wind: After finding the Uprange & Downrange Wind, you gotta plug them both into the AtragMX! You may notice that in the “Target” tab in AtragMX, there are two gaps or squares to fill in Wind Speed. You better plug your Uprange Wind data (from Kestrel) into the gap/square number 1 (the left one) in the "Target" tab in AtragMX. And you plug the Downrange Wind data into the gap/square number 2 (the right one) in the "Target" tab in AtragMX Gap/Square number 1(the left one) is for "Uprange Wind" and Gap/Square number 2 (the right one) is for "Downrange Wind". After getting all the Target Data, you gotta plug them all into the Target tab! Then the AtragMX will give you the final Firing Solution. Here's the Official Manual of Horus AtragMX. Here's the AtragMX tutorial by ACE3 team. ----------> ----------> Or you can actually do the Todd Hodnett “Quick Windage Formula” instead of plugging the wind data in the AtragMX (yup it works! I always do this all the time coz it's much faster than using the AtragMX!) ^_^ 9. Plug the Firing Solution onto your Scope! → To compensate for Bullet Drop, Spin Drift, & Wind Drift, there are 2 things you can do : a. Dial the Scope Adjustment → click the "Up Arrow (↑)" and "Down Arrow (↓)" key for Bullet Drop. click the "Left Arrow (←)" and "Right Arrow (→)" key for Wind Drift and Spin Drift. But I strongly suggest you to NEVER dial for the Wind Drift coz wind is constantly changing all the time, so always use Mildot Holdover for the Wind Drift! I highly recommend you to use Todd Hodnett Quick Windage formula to calculate the Wind Drift fast without even using any ballistics calculator ;) b. you can do the “Mildot Holdover” → use the mildot to hold over the target for Bullet Drop & Wind Drift compensation without dialing the scope adjustment at all. Remember that AtragMX always spits out the Firing Solution in Miliradian! ACE3 scope adjustment is always in Miliradian! Arma 3 scope reticles are mostly Miliradian based reticles (Mildot)! So what is Miliradian? Miliradian is actualy a sniper's angular measurement. 1 Miliradian = 0.0572958° 1 Miliradian = 10 cm at 100 m 1 Miliradian = 1 m at 1 km 10. Always go Prone (click “Z’ key) to stabilize your aim and always Deploy a Bipod (click “C” key) to rest your rifle on it to reduce the scope sway significantly. 11. Make sure the Scope Sway has been reduced so the reticle & the rifle aren’t moving at all when you take the shot. If it still moves a bit, you can hold a breath by holding the right mouse button before taking the shot. 12. Take the shot (click Left Mouse Button really gently) and see the Point of Impact. If it’s still off the Point of Aim, then you gotta re-adjust your weapon system and do follow-up shot fast before the target runs away. Here’s my Arma 3 ACE3 Sniper Tutorial video in which i’m demonstrating all these easy 12 steps in less than 8 minutes: ARMA 3 ACE3 SNIPER TUTORIAL (VERY QUICK, SIMPLE, & EASY 12 STEPS) PLEASE TURN ON THE SUBTITLE! Coz there's no audible commentary in that video :( you guys notice all my shots land perfectly on that Steel Plate target, right? Not low or not high at all! Just perfectly dead on! \m/ Now that’s how you should snipe in Arma 3 (ACE3) from this moment on! Now it's all about ONE SHOT ONE KILL! Here's also some very nice tutorial pdf from QuickDagger (the author of Dagger Sniper Mod) → https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PWnTQRX-1NdpHFc2803mp5FbtCPykCZt Does my tutorial really work for live operative mission???

  25. I have been testing this out on the editor and it seems that when you rearm a vehicle (eg: M2 HUMVEE) that has its ammo depleted the second time around, ACE logistics does not want to rearm the whole turret. Just to be clear, when you first re-arm an empty vehicle at the ammo truck it will rearm the whole vehicle (all 5 mags in the case of the Humvee) but if you try and rearm a second time..the ammo truck will only transfer 1-3 mags into the Humvee turret. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong. FYI, The rearm settings module is set to Rearm Amount: entire vehicle & Ammo supply: Unlimited ammo supply.
