All-In-One AI Command Menu A "WW AI Menu" Patch By Leopard20 & WindWalking Hello everyone. As you know, the WW AI Menu was one of the first and best AI mods released in the early days of ARMA 3 release. It addressed a lot of issues and shortcomings with the vanilla ARMA commanding system, and packed a lot of handy features including: - Infantry commands such as healing, garrisoning & clearing building, rearming, .... - Vehicle commands such as engine on and off, horn and eject with parachute. - Waypoint system with the ability to assign multiple waypoints to your squad members. - Weapon accessories (silencers, flashlights, ...) - Unsticking units. and .... Read more about the mod: https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/topic/153621-ww-aimenu-complimentary-commands/ Unfortunately, when Windwalking left the community some of the features ended up broken, and due to the community rule forbidding people from taking over and/or changing an author's work without their permission, nobody has stepped up to bring this mod back to life. Until now. I decided to bring this mod back to life in a way that respects the community rule and the author's work. Namely, "patching" the original mod by adding features and fixing broken ones. As a result, you will need the original mod installed for my mod to work. You can activate the menu by pressing Y .If you use the "Y" key for Zeus or anything else you can either change the keybinding for those features (I personally use "Ctrl+Y" for Zeus) or change the keybinding for the menu by navigating to: "OPTIONS > CONTROLS > CONFIGURE ADDONS > (dropdown menu) All-In-One Command Menu". I've also included a userconfig file where you can add support for your mods (if they are not supported already). Currently you can add support for: Resupply vehicles, AT soldiers (used in the rearming script) and the Handgun suppressors. Note that you might need to enable "file patching" for the config file to work (either add the -filepatching commandline or enable it in the launcher parameters). This mod is compatible with other commanding mods (such as C2). Although I don't recommend using both for issuing the same command at the same time (e.g when you use C2 to order your units to mount a vehicle, don't use the same command in this mod, as it may cause conflicts and unforeseen consequences) I also recommend this mod as it makes issuing regular and frequent commands a lot easier: (you may need to change the default keys used by the mod, keys 1, 2, 3 , 4, as these keys are used for switching weapons) Advanced Command System (ACS) All features were tested using the vanilla ARMA vehicles/weapons (including all DLCs up to the time of release), and work as intended. However some features (the most important of which being weapon accessories) may not work in other mods (such as RHS or CUP). Edit: As of version 0.50 Beta most features should work with other mods without issues. If they don't please post your feedback in this thread. Here's a quick overview of what is changed: Unchanged: Fixed/Modified/Removed: Added: Screenshots: Notes: Special thanks to: - @Windwalking for his awesome mod. - @Muzzleflash for helping me with showing objects on the map and also teaching me a lot about scripting. He's one of the best guys on this forum. - @mad_cheese for allowing me to use the "Bounding Box" function used in his legendary mod, C2. - and everyone else who kindly answered all my questions on the forum. Disclaimer: I can't guarantee this mod is completely harmless. Please back up your ARMA 3 directory located in the "Documents" folder (C:\Users\YOUR_PC_NAME\Documents\) prior to using this mod (especially the file *.vars.Arma3Profile and the "saved" folder because they are the only files that may be affected). Multiplayer support is in alpha state and not fully tested yet. Dear Moderators, The current release still uses the scripts from the original version. Also, to avoid some conflicts, I had to rename the global variables. If you think this mod is still not in compliance with forum rules please let me know to come up with a solution (you can PM me or post it here). By installing this patch, the original mod will be disabled (If you want me to leave it enabled please leave a feedback and I'll re-enable it).

It's because some users reported they had trouble setting up WW AI Menu (mostly because of FilePatching used in WW AI Menu, which complicated things), so I decided not to make it necessary to have this mod. A couple of such reports:
Ulfgaar posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGHello everyone. I am the mission creator of a medium sized Arma 3 group. Our group is organized into 3 divisions, doing "their" kind of gameplay - being Spec.Ops, regular grunts and combined arms, and the air division. I am looking for a way to let the combined arms group be able to utilize vehicles to a much larger exctent than what they currently can do, as any vehicle requires minimum 2, preferably 3 people to operate. If we want it to be an IFV, we're quickly looking at needing 9 people to fully man 1 IFV. This is currently leaving us with basicly just using 1 vehicle - where we would like to operate at least 2 or 3 in a group. Now, BI has apparently made it so that in singleplayer or in locally hosted games - that you can operate any vehicle from a gunner/commander position in the vehicle, as long as there is an AI in the driver seat (i.e. controlling the driver). As long as you do this in singleplayer/locally hosted games - the control of the vehicle is smoth and precise. Almost like driving a tank in the Battlefield series. However, when doing the same on a dedicated server the controls gets really wonky and the AI driver just simply cannot compute the same detail of control it seems. Where in singleplayer its basicly like driving any other vehicle yourself - while on the dedicated they can only make 40+ degree turns - which makes it impossible to even stay on a simple road. Now, i fully understand that many people play this game for its realism - so do i - but the reason why i love this game is that it is first and foremost a sandbox, where you can form the game to fit your own needs and desires. My group is a MilSim group, but a casual one at that, and far from anything resembling "realsim". But that is our choice, and how we like to play Arma. We also only play vs AI's, having a Zeus controlling them for us during missions, which is set in an ongoing narrative and story which unfolds over several campaigns. Any reservations or opinions about the "overpoweredness" of being able to fill two roles of a tank as a single player is sort of void, because we're not looking at balance or pure realism in this sense - we're looking for a solution which enables more people of our group to have fun in our games (lets face it, if your stuck as the driver the entire game...you need to be a special kind of interested in driving, else it will be one long and boring mission, and we end up in a situation where "who needs to fall on the sword this mission to let everyone else have fun with a vehicle backing them up" kind of thing). For regular unarmored vehicles this is not going to be used, as those are for the most part just filling the role of transports - taking our players into the missions, being ditched at a safe place, upon where the mission begins. Often they need to go back to said vehicle to get out of the mission - but as said, im looking for this primarily to free up player slots from the most unpopular role to have in any mission where armored vehicles are going to be used - the driver seat. Im not looking for opinions, im looking for solutions, tips or tricks. Im glad BI has sorted this for singleplayer as such, but it seemingly does not work the same way on a dedicated server, which is what i need it to do. Thanks for any advice, help or solutions you may provide me with! //Ulfgaar
