Drongo's Command Enhancement Version 021 released DCE greatly enhances control over your AI squadmates and lets you take command of large-scale combined ops, letting you switch to any unit at any time. DCE delivers a huge array of vital enhancements to Arma 3 battles in SP or MP: Streamlined and expanded squad control Command large scale combined-arms operations (platoon, company or even battalion) Detailed information sharing (contact reports, map-markers for enemy and friendly units, casualty reports) Many vital quality of life features Squad dialog: Command dialog: Version 21 trailer: Overview: Squad Engine If you're reading this, you've probably at one point been tempted to headbutt your monitor in rage at your insubordinate AI or the cumbersome vanilla command menu ("F5, F6,0,0,7, argh I'm dead!"). With a single intuitive click DCE lets you control: formation stance behaviour combat mode and more DCE also expands control of your squad with commands such as: quick-posture (Contact!, Patrol, etc) deploy/undeploy statics garrison structure heal self/others dismount cargo only eject all all/dismounts only/vehicles only halt/follow and more Command Engine DCE seamlessly brings all the elements on the Arma 3 battlefield together for that only-in-Arma combined arms experience. Command your tank platoons forward, order your infantry to secure buildings, call in gunships for search and destroy missions, insert your spec ops with via helo. Play Arma 3 as a real-time tactics wargame with a first person option. Control AI groups with single-click orders controlling: waypoints (add, change type, delete, etc) mount/dismount vehicles crew/decrew vehicles formation combat mode behaviour speed altitude landing (helos only) deploy statics formation direction searching garrisoning and more Take control of any unit on your side to get into the action yourself. InfoShare Maintain situational awareness with friendly chatter and reports: Contact reports (reporting enemy composition, size and position) Map markers for friendly elements Map markers for spotted enemy elements Casualty reports Quality Of Life We've all been there. You're engrossed in the thrill of capturing that a bitterly-contested town when suddenly a "friendly" APC rear-ends your tank and now your MBT is sitting in the middle of the vital crossroads on its roof. A quick dash of DCE magic sees everything put right. Other blood-pressure reducing features include: Teleport (great for when AI groups just don't want to move) Dynamic view distance settings Enable/disable Dynamic Simulation at any time Clean up dead vehicles Animation fixer FPS counter and more DCE also offers 14 function keys which can be assigned to any script by mission makers. This is extremely useful when testing or when you want to make a custom mission but don't want the hassle of writing a dialog from scratch. Using in game To bring up the menu, hit your DCE key ("Window App" by default, change under CONFIGURE > CONTROLS > CONFIGURE ADDONS in mission). Most of the buttons and functions are self-explanatory or can be learned by playing around in the editor for a few minutes. Known Bugs Not a bug, but a limitation: Only a single group at a time can be given dialog orders (in HC you can select multiple groups and give orders) Using the Switch button from the Command menu seems to disable the AI of the unit switched to Future Plans Make units report when they are under fire with no casualties Scripted modules for quickly setting up company-scaled combined arms missions with objectives, end-game conditions and automatically generated enemy forces Permissions You may not adapt the dialogs for your own usage.

twistedx posted a topic in ARMA 3 - GENERALHola Gents, I wrote this guide about 3 years ago, but since have moved it to a blog site that is dedicated to providing the best quality content on the market. (shameless self-promotion) This guide is to help teams get better at communicating with each other and develop good communication habits. There are many other blog posts all based on items and strategies that I learned while playing Arma 3. I hope you enjoy them all. They apply to pretty much any FPS game out there and it is good tools to put in your team's toolbox. Hope you enjoy them. TwistedxVs www.fpsgamers.co
