  1. Hi guys, I have a MP mission that has a capture zone on the USS Liberty and when the capture zone flips the commander of the side that owns the zone gains access to the Mk45 that is placed on the bow of the ship. My problem is that the Mk45 only exists for Blufor and as a result whenever an Opfor unit comes within range the Mk45 lets loose regardless of which faction has access to the artillery support. I would like the Mk45 to ignore everyone but the support requester, I played around with using the virtual artillery but it doesn't give the persistence that I'm after and it likes to spawn an Mk45 in the water and just overall looks bad. I've tried a few different disableAI in the units init, not sure what to try next. It seems that the Ai for drones or terminal accessed units is unique and I'm not finding much on how to control them.
  2. Hi there people, Is there a way to make a static artillery emplacement such as a mortar have an infinite range across an entire map via a script? I don't like using the virtual combat support modules as I like to hear/see the artillery being fired from a base camp far from the front lines. I've used the ALiVE mod and MCC forward observer artillery interface before however these both still require the artillery gun to be in range. I don't want to have to move Artillery vehicles across the map to get within range ya see. Thanks in advance, - Jack

  5. Hello all, I'm trying to get the following script to work, but I get the following error when the AI tries to call artillery fire: 'scalar |# |bool array string 0xfcffffefo': Error unknown operator bool Script: I'm not a scripter, so I'm not sure what the exact problem is. Any assistance appreciated!
  6. GOM_fnc_ambientArtilleryFire V1.2 Purpose of this script: Gives mission makers access to simple ambient artillery units that fire just for decorative purposes into random directions. Features: Dedi and local MP compatible Takes pre placed vehicles and uses their main guns to engage artillery fire at simulated targets for the given salvo/rounds number. Works fine with with vanilla artillery assets and multiple third party vehicles. It's also possible to immediately stop the script and free up all units to fire on actual threats, so you can use the same units for the vanilla artillery support module/other arty scripts. How to use this script: At first copy the spoiler contents into a file inside your mission folder and name it accordingly. init.sqf: _initAmbientArty = [] execVM "scripts\GOM\ambient\GOM_fnc_ambientArtilleryFire.sqf"; scripts\GOM\ambient\GOM_fnc_ambientArtilleryFire.sqf: In the editor: Place few grouped or ungrouped artillery units put the following into their init fields: this setVariable ["GOM_fnc_ambientArtyBatteryID","Battery01",true]; _fire = ["Battery01",3,4] spawn GOM_fnc_ambientArtilleryFire This will make arty guns assigned to "Battery01" fire 3 salvoes with 4 rounds each. Parameters: _battery = "Battery01"; //battery ID assigned through objects init field _salvoes = 3; //(OPTIONAL) how many salvoes will be fired _rounds = 6; //(OPTIONAL) rounds per salvo _debug = false; //(OPTIONAL) displays debug messages _fire = [_battery,_salvoes,_rounds] spawn GOM_fnc_ambientArtilleryFire To abort the script simply call GOM_fnc_abortAmbientArtilleryFire wherever you like. _abort = [] call GOM_fnc_abortAmbientArtilleryFire; By executing the script again guns will fire as usual. For best effect place multiple groups executing the code simultaneously, this way you'll get multiple groups firing at multiple simulated targets. Known Issues: None so far. Changelog: V1.2: Made script local MP and dedi compatible Improved firing Arc Improved projectile deletion Guns are now assigned to batteries to allow multiple batteries for ambient artillery fire SP Demo Mission Enjoy!
  7. 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.

I have had some of these models since A2 and some from other sources (some from Citizenship)... close to coming to the point where it is almost ready to test :) Working arty on all units. I've been playing with the different artillery selections so their max ranges should be accurately simulated. Up to 300km range on the SCUD so it should work on even the big-huge maps out there. Arty Fire Mission Improved SCUD functions! Initiates player-requested SCUD fire mission for friendly pook_SCUD launchers. Can be scripted for mission-driven "RED DAWN" or "SEARCH AND DESTROY" SCUD fire missions (e.g. "Stop General Guba before he launches the SCUD" type missions). This function is available for SCUD, and Iskander (9K720) functions are in the works. To use the SCUD launch function: To use the SRBM Function: Players can ready, load and fire the missiles, enabling the choice of HE, cluster, and 5kt nuke warheads on a player-controlled vehicle. Multiple texture sets for the vehicles. Trying to cover all the different camo variations - forest, desert, jungle, drab green for most of the vehicles. I've redone some of the previous textures from the A2 models that weren't looking too good in A3.

  10. I'm trying to use BIS_fnc_fireSupportVirtual to work with RHS artillery assets (the m119a2 arty canon for the moment). But so far with no luck. I got the magazine classnames by getting in the m119a2 and using currentMagazine vehicle player; while changing the type of ammo in the artillery computer. I obtained these: "HE-FRAG M1" //"RHS_mag_m1_he_12" "Illumination M314" //"rhs_mag_m314_ilum_4" "Smoke M60A2" //"rhs_mag_m60a2_smoke_4" But using [player,"rhs_mag_m60a2_smoke_4",10,1,0] call BIS_fnc_fireSupportVirtual will not work. While [player,"32Rnd_155mm_Mo_shells",10,1,0] call BIS_fnc_fireSupportVirtual (vanilla ammo) works. I was wondering if maybe I was not using the correct classnames. Any ideas?

  13. I'm trying to modify the Artillery Computer Interface. I basically would like to add an option, on top of the 'mode' menu. What Arma currently lacks is the ability to attack a target under different angles. Now it seems the computer always tries to pickup the high angle. In order to do that I need to find the script/function which is kicked off uppon clicking on the map and/or Fire button. Looking through the config, I have found the entry for the Artillery computer's interface which is: RscDisplayArtillery Under it's class Controls I found CA_ButtonFire. What I expected there would be onButtonClick = But that is nowhere to be found. Neither I can find the config entry for the "Artillery Computer" action, which should contain some command or function. Also this is nowhere to be found. Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction?
  14. Hi. I am writing a script for artillery so that a person standing outside of the mortar can see the mortar`s elevation and direction. And it works in SP, however in multiplayer I get false readings. The digits I get is not what the gunner sees. Are the values local ? If so is it possible to get true gunner`s values, globalize them and share with people nearby ?
  15. Hey, I was wondering if there was a way to do the following regarding artillery. 1. Disable the Artillery Computer on one or multiple artillery systems, but keep it on, on other vehicles. 2. Only allow artillery to fire on the mode: "Close" or "medium" if done via Artillery Computer (or any way really). ~PingWing
  16. Hi, i m in the early stage of implenting an artillery computer that will replace the map click vanilla solution for players, and an artillery support request so player can give orders to tubes controlled by AIs. For the player's arti comptuer, it is quite straight forward, he enters the map grid and altitude of the target and optionaly 2 corrections (in meters) in a UI, and hit the compute button, that will show him a rsrcTitle with the fire solution for the loaded mags. For the arti support handled by the AIs, i could simply use the doWatch function, but i need to check that the AI can actualy setup the turret to hit the target, (bearing / angle turret's limitation). So far, I managed to get the math to compute the fire solution (bearing, angle) to hit the target, but this will only be accurate if the vehicle is perfectly leveled. Unfortuanly, i can't find a way to adjust the fire solution according to the vehicle's pitch and bank, this is way over my geometry skills. Thx in advance for the help.
  17. Unable to use RHS artillery

    Hello I want Ai Bm-21 grad to fire at a specific target or custom marker location. I need the BM-21 grads full artillery barrage. not firing rockets one by one. I've searched almost all the scripts or solutions, but everything's pretty old and none of those worked. I use ACE, JSRS, RHS and some small additional mods that has nothing to do with my problem. could you PLEASE suggest me something? please do not just search some old links and just ctrl-c and ctrl-v because I've been searching everything for 5 hours maybe. I couldn't make default arma3 mortars (mk6) working either. my scenario is something like - Enemy infantries are attacking a town where artillery should do supporting fire (in this case Ai firing BM-21 barrages) I am planning to set 4 BM-21 grad unit in my mission. please, I really need your help guys, I've learned so much from all of you and this forum and I'm so thankful for that. so I set my hopes on you guys that you'll help me. thanks.
  18. Simple question... do the LASER guided artillery shells actually work? I've found zero forum posts or how to videos that indicate they do and how to reliably execute their use. Seems there are some who claim to have no issue but many more for whom the system is not working. We've spent a good amount of time trying to get LASER guided anything working and the only thing that has yet to work at all is the artillery. Help appreciated.
  19. I created a ballistic computer (spreadsheet) for artillery. The difference between what I created and what I have seen elsewhere is that I added a calibration function. The concept is that you provide the initial inputs and fire the first round, then input the coordinates of where that round impacts, and the sheet automatically updates the yellow cells for the adjusted bearing and elevation. This calibration is valid as long as you consider the following assumptions: 1. As you drive the vehicle, any change in position AND/OR change in elevation will throw off your calibration by the same amount. 2. The calibration value is most accurate at the bearing you used during the calibration process, and your results deviate more as your turret deviates from that initial bearing (if you target something 90° from the original target, don't get mad when it's not accurate). All of the testing was completed using the M4 Scorcher, however the M5 MLRS and the MK6 Mortar is included in the file. The equations don't change, only the muzzle velocity values, so if there is any issue with the results start by verifying the velocity values. Using the M4 Scorcher, I drove to a distance of 5.6km, entered my cords and the cords of the target, fired the first round, entered the impact cords, and put rounds on target consistently after that. Remember, the performance of the computer is dependent on the accuracy of the data entry. Calibration process: NOTE: ONLY CHANGE VALUES IN THE GREEN CELLS. 1. Enter your vehicle type in cell B6. 2. Enter your cords in cells B7:B9, using the 4-digit format. 3. Enter the target cords in cells B10:B12. 4. Adjust your firing mode according to the value shown in cell B17. 5. Adjust your bearing according to the value shown in cell B18. 6. Select an elevation value to use for your calibration shot; in theory the "high" value will result in a more accurate calibration (this isn't real life btw), although in practice the difference seems small. Fire your calibration shot. 7. Determine the impact cords of the calibration shot, either by watching the map (King of the Hill) or by utilizing a forward observer. 8. Enter the impact cords of the calibration shot as follows: a. If you fired the calibration shot using the "high" elevation value, enter the impact cords into cells E10:E12. b. If you fired the calibration shot using the "low" elevation value, enter the impact cords into cells F10:F12. 9. The calibrated bearing and elevation values automatically populate into the yellow cells B18:B20. Adjust your turret to the corrected bearing and elevation values and fire at will. Notes: -Re-calibrate any time the vehicle is moved, or if you change target cords and the bearing changes changes more than a couple degrees. -If you can't get the system to work and you are following the steps above, verify that you are in the correct firing mode by pointing at something far away and cycling firing mode until you locate the short range mode, then cycle forward from there. -The computer is set up such that: -You can keep the same calibration values in E10:F12 and change to different targets in cells B10:B12 without affecting the calibration. Remember the assumptions listed above when doing this. -You must clear all of the contents in cells E10:F12 before you can accurately RE-calibrate your firing. (Actually clearing the contents from cells E10 and F10 will remove the calibration effect from the yellow cells, if you are in a hurry). -The computer will return an error message if there are values present in BOTH cells E10 and F10 at the same time.

  20. Story This is a script that I wrote years ago for a event mission. It's supposed to simplify the command to an AI for shooting at an specified area with the artillery. There are several routine integrated to avoid script errors. A description can be found inside the SQF file, how to execute the script. It's SP/MP/Dedicated and HC compatible. Have fun. Content It is a single ~100Code-Line-Big Script to let an AI controlled artillery shoot at a single destination. Purpose The aim of this script is to make it easier to implement an artillery.

  21. As i know likely many will agree with this: A lot of us would like to use the Artillery Manually instead of use the Artillery Computer. Currently the only way to do this is by direct fire or by getting a spreadsheet someone made on google docs that helps you calculate the required Elevation and ect. EG: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1q4PWQ4b6azx7YAKrRErsdKEiaYvuJzp0Who7V0batAc/edit?pageId=116206726297015043606#gid=0 Now this suggestion is about to add something like the above spreadsheet as a standard tool into the game it self for those who want to manually calculate and fire the artillery. Why: Some (like me) find it more enjoyable to perform an artillery role when we have to manually calculate the elevation, velocity, and ect. This makes the role of artillery a little bit more complicated and challenging instead of boringly open the computer then point on map and press the fire key. The reason for adding it as a standard tool in the game that can be opened like artillery computer but instead of map click and fire it gives a map with all the the requirements to make the calculation to fire at your wished target is because the following: 1- its a little bit more challenging cuss a wrong calculation could end up you fire friendlies instead perhaps. 2- By having to manually calculate it becomes a bit harder to operate the artillery pieces (MK6, M4, M5) if you are not familiar with it. 3-It makes the artillery role more enjoyable for those who use it this way cuss at least for me (likely as well for others) it gets rather boring to fire artillery when all you do is open the computer mark on map and fire. 4- No more need of those spreadsheets having you to alt+tab every time to insert the next information to calculate. Let me hear your thoughts below in the comments and vote an +1 in poll if support this idea.
  22. Hi all, Among the most used modules, I guess plenty of scriptwriters would like to have better results with support ones. - First of all, for all support modules, virtual support is an acceptable alternative as far as you accept to spawn/delete a unit for a task. Artillery disappear as soon as the last shell is shot, regardless of the trajectory ETA; So, there is a bullet coming from a null object, traveling the map and never mind the shooter. Script with that! - For all modules again, the "real" unit option allows more immersive condition as far as you have to protect this asset. And, then one thing is absolutely missing, the condition fields for enabling/disabling the support. You can't imagine the lines I had to write just because I decided only a radio equipped guy could call artillery. Try it!.. grab a radio backpack (or any radio), (enabling the link between requester and provider), then drop the radio (disabling the support), then grab/drop... Oups that doesn't work anymore, except if you write something bis_fnc_addSupportlink and bis_fnc_removeSupportLink (So many hours to find that!). So please, add enable/disable condition fields for support. About CAS support, so much things to improve: - Please, make unguided bombing run workable on any surface, with no objective underneath! I mean bombs must strike the marker position, like a GPS release if you want. That's all! No need to have something special. Actually your BIS_SUPP_LASERTGT, laserTargetE or laserTargetW types, along with a "destroy" waypoint, doesn't work on Tanoa forest for example. And please, don't explain we need an object objective... Let's the player bombs where he wants! - Furthermore, your FSM just take driver into account. That means there is no chance at all to get CAS from a crewed aircraft (pilot/gunner). So, bye bye so many CAS aircraft from UNSUNG DELTA mod: Intruder, Skywarrior, F4 Phantom... Please make unguided bombing CAS firing on any position of the CAS marker and make all CAS aircraft workable what crew can be. - lets the player choose the number of bombs to be released! About helicopter transportation: - First problem: the map can't be zoomed in/out for marking destination. You have to cope with your last map zoom before the call?!? - then, you can't alter your destination underway. I wrote a script to be transported in any AI manned vehicle (car , helicopter), with instant destination altering or cancellation. (MP compatible). Code on demand. So please, make transportation module (not only helicopter) more versatile, with alter/cancel destination, and correct the map zoom bug. Thank you for your attention.
  23. Hello. I'm trying to create simple mission. I placed 2S9 Sochor that should attack distant area until you destroy it. I used 2 scripts: mortarName commandArtilleryFire [markerpos "MortarMarker", getArtilleryAmmo [mortarName] select 0,500000]; this one to Sochor fire 500000 rounds which means it should fire for a while. "this addeventhandler ["fired", {(_this select 0) setvehicleammo 1}]"; this one to Sochor have infinite ammo to be able to fire 500000 rounds from previous script. Unfortunately Sochor fires only for 30 mins or so and than it stops. Any ideas what is wrong and how to make Sochor fire for more than couple of hours? Thank you.
  24. Hi, Since last version 1.68, my scorcher artillery barrage isn't working anymore. I did some tests in vanilla with a player, a full AI scorcher artillery and marker or even car (empty or not), tested on several distances from Altis Almyra desert. Artillery never shot one shell. What worked before, in on act field of a trigger: { _x spawn { _tk = _this; _tk disableAI "AUTOCOMBAT"; _cnt = 0; while {alive _tk && _cnt < 500} do { _tk doArtilleryFire [getMarkerPos "mkr", _tk currentMagazineTurret [0],5]; _tk addMagazineTurret [_tk currentMagazineTurret [0], [0], 5]; _cnt = _cnt +5; sleep 30 } } } forEach [art1,art2,art3,art4]; What doesn't work anymore, with a radio trigger Alpha for example: art1 doArtilleryFire [getMarkerPos "mkr","32Rnd_155mm_Mo_shells",1];
  25. No supports.

    Artillery support module isn't working, the menu entry is grayed out/not usable. I'm curently playing the "supports showcase", but mortars where unavailable on the "scuba showcase" as well. Is it the new update? :Edit: Turns out the problem was a mod I had loaded. Do not know wich mod yet tho...
