Asmodeuz posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGHuman players can access individual AI soldier's inventory when they are the acting squad leader for a squad filled with AI soldiers. Acessing the inventory can be done from the Action menu by selecting menu number 6 ("Action") and from there selecting Open subordinate's inventory Also already thinking past that human squad leader can also give an "inventory command" which makes the selected AI to approach some container and after reaching the container the AI's inventory dialog will open where the player can then freely transfer items between the AI's inventory and the container. Might there be some way to prevent players from opening, accessing or manipulating AI's inventory in aforementioned ways?
I searched but couldn't find this specific problem or solution. During certain missions, at certain times, my friends and I will lose the ability to select action menu options with the scroll wheel. The action menu will come up, but will not scroll through the options. You have to choose the first one. So if I wanted to look at the inventory of a soldier, I would first have to rearm at him and then when I open up the action menu the next time, the rearm option being gone, I would be able to look at the inventory as that option would be on top. When it happens, it happens mid-mission, but I can't determine what triggers it. It is also inconsistent: in the mission earlier today, I was able to scroll through the seat assignment for my squad on a truck but not scroll through the options on a search a body menu. Has anyone else seen this or knows of a solution? It's kind of a pain in the middle of a fight... Thank you! RR
Hopefully I'm not suggesting this too late in the development cycle but I'd like to see some improvements to the ancient action menu. I was very pleasantly surprised when Apex control preset came out which removed weapon switching from the action menu and reduced the clutter. I suggest taking it further and cleaning it up some more. I don't know about you guys but I hate menus, I hate interacting with them mid combat and getting arma'ed by them and so on. 1. Give us an option to remove certain actions from the action menu I personally think we should be allowed to remove actions such as: "Get Out" and "Eject" when there are keybinds for those (default V and 2xV respectively). I cannot count how many times me and other players been ejected from a vehicle when trying to use a certain action which disappeared for a split second when another player used an action and Eject option was the first one in the menu which got selected in that split second. Yeah it is so broken when it keeps resetting whenever someone else uses it. Additionally we have keybinds for: Engine On/Off; Lights On/Off; Turn Out/In; Gear Up/Down; Flaps Up/Down and some others I can't think off at the moment. Would like it if there was an option either in game options or controls to remove specific actions from the action menu so as to allow to customize it for those that prefer using action menu for some reason and keep everyone happy 2. Introduce a quick access/hot key system for inventory items So we can stop placing explosives on the helicopter or transport truck as we are trying to board it while the action menu keeps resetting because our fellow comrades are also trying to board it at the same time. What I am proposing is essentially an MMO style hot key system which would imo benefit Arma greatly. By default Apex Preset uses "1" for primary weapon, "2" for secondary and "3" for launcher. So player could assign his own keys for each quick access slot which would show the corresponding key bind like in the mockup image bellow. Then the player would drag and drop the items from uniform/vest/backpack into the quick access slots. Additionally it could be used not only for explosives but grenades as well. For example you press number 5 and your character switches to an RGO grenade. While I would prefer character actually holding the grenade in his hand like in FPS games since the 90s I'm not sure Bohemia can afford the animator labor? I could live with Shactac/ACE style floating grenades in front of you. Regardless I think Red Orchestra2/Rising Storm did grenades very elegantly in my opinion. You aim with your ingame hand and cook grenade at the same time, how intuitive :O Here's a Satchel You can throw the Satchel too 3. Improve opening doors/windows Could we have the door icon attach to doors, windows in the actual 3D world space so we know which door is about to open/close? Seems relatively simple If icons were to attach to doors/windows you could then remove those options from the action menu and look for an icon prompt instead. I also noticed that when giving move commands to AI there's an arrow that seems to attach to objects. So it seems that there's already a capability in the engine to attach HUD elements in 3D space. Anyway these are my suggestions. Looking forward to more suggestions and a discussion. Hopefully it's not too late to get the action menu improved
Ok, I completely suck when it comes to scripting. I might be better at reading ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, and I can't do that at all. The problem I have is that there are some functions I'd like to use in game when I'm flying helicopters, without having to use my mouse. I want keybinds that I can map to my HOTAS setup. What I'm trying to do is make a mod that associates 'collision lights on/collision lights off' to a keybind. I'd also like a keybind for turning on/off interior red lights. Doesn't matter to me if I have to use CBA and Configure Addons, or just the Custom controls in the Configure menu. I've looked at the following links and can't make heads/tails of it, but I have been trying to figure it out. http://dev.withsix.com/projects/cca/wiki/Keybinding https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/inputAction https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/inputAction/actions https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/inputAction/actions/bindings So if anyone can help, or try to mentor me, I'd appreciate it. Thanks
