SpaceNoodle92 posted a topic in OFP : MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGSo I've been wanting to make a mission that is a combination of a "dynamic campaign" (probably using the COIN coop engine), that also lets me command other groups about like CoC's command engine. Before I try and combine these two things, I have to ask - is that a difficult waste of time? I mean I don't see other missions like that so it must be hard or not possible. I'm kind of a noob at this; just want to get some input before I potentially waste some time on the deal.
Edit (09-22-2007): Added 0.86 Mirrors Edit (09-20-2007): New Version 0.86 Edit (09-01-2007): Added Mirrors Command Engine X for ArmA (CEX) Public Beta ------------------------------------------------------- The Chain of Command is proud to present the public beta release of the Command Engine for ArmA. WHAT IS IT FOR? --------------------- Like its predecessors in OFP, CEX is a script addon that enables players to control multiple groups. Units are organized in hierarchical command chains allowing the representation of real life military units such as platoons, companies or battalions. CEX functionality can be incorporated into any mission. Mission designers have full control over the command structures and can freely assign command capabilities to the players. CEX is designed to be fully multiplayer compatible. Players can take any position within the command structure on any side, be it commander-in-chief, squad leader or private. CEX commanders control their subordinate units via an intuitive graphical user interface which borrows elements found in real-time strategy games. Despite the intention to grant easy access, the underlying system is intended as a realistic simulation of higher-level combat in ArmA. The addon contains several fully playable missions as well as templates for mission designers to base their own missions on. IMPORTANT NOTES ----------------------- 1) Please remember that this a beta release. CEX has grown into a sizeable system, so please expect some bugs and glitches. This is especially true in multiplayer, where CEX has not received full testing yet. Currently, only the test mission is MP-enabled out of the box. 2) We will do our best to make future CEX version back-compatible. We can not guarantee, though, that missions created for the present version will work without problems with the gold release version. While you are of course free to create missions now, please be aware of this possible caveat.

Hello! I have a couple of questions about night missions that i'm making. The main problem is light. I've added NV to the weapon crates in the spawn zone of the missions, but when the players respawn, they respawn without NV so they're bacisally too blind to find the crates. How do i make it so that dead players respawn with NV? Another question i have is how i make a searchlight turned on from the mission start. I don't want a soldier controlling them, i just want them to be turned on. I'm guessing there's a simple init command for it, i just haven't been able to find it. If anyone can help out with this, i sure would appreciate it! /J
