IS IT POSSIBLE TO LINK A LAUNCHER UP WITH A DARTER OR LASER DESIGNATOR? Is it possible for a player to link the rocket of his launcher to the laser mark provided by a darter or laser designator, and if so, how? Thank you in advance for taking the time answering my question.
I've tried multiple things in the init field of the drone, but none seems to work. Here are the things I've tried: uav1 fireAtTarget [target1, weaponMuzzleName] // does nothing uav1 doTarget target1 // does not fire laser marker uav1 commandFire target1; // does nothing uav1 fire "Laserdesignator"; // does nothing uav1 selectWeapon "Laserdesignator"; // does nothing uav1 forceWeaponFire ["Laserdesignator","Laserdesignator"]; // does not fire laser marker either, with or without the previous line uav1 fireAtTarget [target1, "Laserdesignator"]; // this one gives an error... 😛 Ready to give up lol! Nevermind, I found it! 🙂 ANSWER Here is what turns on the laser on the Darter: bool = uav1 fireAtTarget [target1, "Laserdesignator_mounted"]; Also how do you change the UAV feed to FLIR by script?
I've noticed two issues with UAVs in ARMA 3, one of the issues just started within the past few ARMA updates, the other issue has been persistant through all the past few years from what I can tell. The newest issue is that when flying any of the UAVs and then using the UAV PIP camera so you can see the UAV while your walking around seems to be broke. It still technically works but instead of using the "Gunner" camera view it now uses the "Driver" camera view. In the past it has always used the gunner and not the driver view. One of the recent updates must have had a bug that reversed this which isn't good at all and pretty much makes the UAV PIP useless because all you see is the driver's view which is most of the time clouds and sky, so you don't actually see the gunners view which is pointed at the ground, even when the gunner is locked onto a specific area or target, you still only get the drivers view of the sky. The second issue which has been going on for some time is the shaking on the camera. I know this has been reported in the past but haven't heard anything about fixing it. A few people said to disable camera shake because it is caused by the UAV shaking because of the geforces in the sky, other people say uncheck autonomous while looking around for targets, and others say make a script to limit the UAV speed so that the geforces don't affect the camera. This issue should be worked on because it is very very hard to look around/aim/lock on to targets with the camera spazzing out all the time to an unbearable degree. It is most visable when using the Greyhawk to loiter around the AO. I'm pretty sure this has to be a bug and not built that way because I'm sure modern UAVs have stabailizer systems in place so they don't shake AS BAD as the ones in ARMA 3 do.
