  1. Hi. Is there a stable way to check if the explosive device is a simple step on mine or if it has a remote detonator (can be activated from a distance using the action menu)? I want to make a function that distinguishes these two types of explosive devices. Tried to find these differences in the config viewer but no result. For example, if a player has "DemoCharge_Remote_Mag", "ATMine_Range_Mag", and "APERSTripMine_Wire_Mag" in his inventory, only "DemoCharge_Remote_Mag" should be returned as distance detonable. Thanks.
  2. Hi Everyone, I'm new to modding and I made a custom explosive mod and most things are working fine but I have a couple of questions. I have something like a bomb satchel that's a remote bomb, and I'm wondering what the different options on certain commands do. Is there a list of the different explosions that can be used in the ExplosionEffects field I've found some obviously, but is there a reference list anywhere? triggerWhenDestroyed is something I've seen in the CUP mods but can't find anything out about it. I assume enabling it causes the bomb to trigger when destroyed but doesn't seem to do anything. Edit: My bombs show up under Magazines, instead of explosives how do I setup my cfg weapons so they appear under explosives. class CfgWeapons { class Default; class Put: Default { class PutMuzzle; class PipeBombMuzzle: PutMuzzle { magazines[] = {"SuitcaseBombMag","SuitcasePipeBomb_Mag"}; }; }; }; Figured that part out Thanks for any help.

    Satchels Only

    If i wanted to make a script that requires a satchel to be placed on a radio tower to destroy it, what would be a method i could use? Basically im trying to make it so players cant just shoot it with CAS or Artillery. someone has to physically walk up and place a satchel on the tower to blow it up.
  4. so I currently scripted out a situation where you try to release a civilian that's charged with explosives, thing is, the explosion is too big. It will destroy everything on a very big radius, I'm currently running ACE3 and also the bomb classname is "M_Mo_82mm_AT_LG", other bombs I've tried are "R_80mm_HE" and "Bo_GBU12_LGB" but they were still too big. I'm looking for something with a small radius that will kill the person next to it or about a radius of 5m-10m or anything around that if possible. Does anyone know? The bomb explosion class name or just the explosion itself? It would help a lot!! Thanks beforehand and wish you all best of luck! Edit: A good bomb is "M_PG_AT", but it is still sort of big!
  5. Hi, I'm running a KP liberation Altis mission on my server. And i was playing for a while and trying to explode a FOB. But when i set the explosions and selected a trigger (im using ACE) it didn't go off. Then i tried multiple other explosives and they simply dont explode. No matter how. Can you guys help me out? Thank you in advance. The mods im using are : @CBA_A3;@CUP_Terrains_-_Core;@CUP_Terrains_-_Maps;@ACE_3_3.13.1_with_Old_Medical_System_(XXth);@Old_Medical_RHS_ACE_Compat_(XXth);@RHSAFRF;@RHSGREF;@RHSGREF;@RHSSAF;@RHSUSAF;@Project_OPFOR;@RKSL_Studios_Attachments_v3.01;@3CB_BAF_Weapons_(RHS ammo compatibility);@3CB_BAF_Weapons_(RHS ammo compatibility);@3CB_BAF_Vehicles_(RHS reskins);@3CB_BAF_Equipment;@3CB_BAF_Weapons;@3CB_BAF_Units;@3CB_BAF_Vehicles;@3CB_Factions;@Task_Force_Canada_(TFC-CAF);@Lithuanian_Armed_Forces;@NLDSOF_LITE_mas;@CUP_Weapons
  6. I'm trying to make a tripwire mine that has the sound/smoke/noise effect that the LoW training mine has. I've gotten 99% of it to work, but that last thing I need help with. In the mission editor I can see my new explosive, and it's in the explosive category. It also fires properly and has the desired effects. That's the good. What's not working is that I can't defuse the mine. In the arsenal it shows up in magazines and not explosives. I believe these two symptoms are related. If I can just figure out how to get this to show up in the explosives tab of the arsenal I think it will fix my lack of ability to defuse. I'm inheriting from stuff that already works, and I don't think I've changed anything that would cause my problem. So I'm here to see if anyone can find what I've missed.

  7. Hey, all. I've been attempting to create a mission for some time now, and every problem I've encountered so far, I have been able to solve... until today. Context: Simply put, the mission uses ACE, which has its own explosive framework, and to that end the ACE site does provide some useful information. Specifically, I've been using 'ace_explosives_fnc_scriptedExplosive'. The good news is, it works like a charm. The catch is that it only seems to work for explosives which are spawned in through the editor, and not those created by scripts. In my scenario, there is a trigger (code below). The idea is to have an area where all cars driven by blufor units have a demolition charge spawned and attached to said vehicle, then have it explode. The problem is the line '[_newEp, -3] call ace_explosives_fnc_scriptedExplosive;'. For whatever reason, it works wonders with explosives placed within the editor (and subsequently attached to vehicles), but doesn't do a thing for any explosive spawned in via script. I was hoping any of you, who are more versed in scripting, could shed some light on the subject. I am by no means an experienced script writer/programmer, and most of what I know is from hours of messing around, so any advice would be much appreciated. Condition Code executed by the trigger: count (nearestObjects [trig2, ["Car"], 50]) > 0; On Activation code executed by the trigger (via script): _carlist = _this select 0; { if (side (driver _x) == west) then { hint "true"; _newEp = "DemoCharge_F" createVehicle [0, 0, 0]; _newEp attachTo [_x, [0, 0, 0], "driverview"]; [_newEp, -3] call ace_explosives_fnc_scriptedExplosive; } else { hint "false" }; } forEach _carList; Where _carList is: nearestObjects [trig2, ["Car"], 50] If I had to chance a guess at what was happening, I'd wager that ACE is only applying its explosive framework to the explosives placed in the editor, while those spawned via script maintain their vanilla class attributes.
  8. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DEV-A3 --- Dlegion's Enhanced Vanilla - Arma 3 --- adding the ARMA3 missing features ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- by DLEGION (email: ddelfino@hotmail.com) DOWNLOAD: https://mega.nz/#!TlYzBKYK!47utKrd9Fv7x59fn5ZHnBW3oGiFpPsxkshDoeiGyMcY (if someone want to put this on armaholic thats welcome) --EDIT---here is a video of the features: Vanilla (default) ARMA3 gameplay and gameworld interaction is way too limited, really unacceptable for today standard, especially for a game like ARMA3! each DLC (like jets) that comes out, i ask myself why,why and why they dont want to fix simple things like attach explosives to objects/vehicles, open inventory underwater (at least charges!!), manipulate game objects like move barrels, push a car ecc.....but obviously they dont intend to fix all this. here is why i searched for scripts that enhance vanilla gameplay, and merged them togheter fixing all the problems to have a single stable script base to enahance gameplay (so no mod needed, just join a server with this scripts and play!). it took me almost 1 year to discover all this awesome scripts and edit them to make they work togheter, i dont want any glory, just give back something to the community that helped me, and make life easier for other people in my situation, so in few minutes and not a year they will set-up theyr enhanced gameplay! its a collection of many scripts, made from different authors,all great people, that gived me permission to use theyr awesome work (and in many cases helped me editing). i made it so its Multiplayer, Join-In-Progress and respawn compatible, there is no noticeable FPS or any kind of performance drop (adding 1 infantry squad to the game has waaay more impact on performance). it adds many very basic features so much needed for any game of this kind. to name some of the most relevant: - logistic to EVERY game object, including man, allow move every object (can disable unwanted objects by a variable or class) - attach explosives to EVERY object (including man, unnamed map objects like trees, vehicles ecc...) and detonate only specific one. - drag & drop wounded, alive or corpses! - melee kill. - make AI (of your side) join your squad and command of it. - factory to build every object for a cost (can limit object types) and credit sytem. - dual (secondary) primary weapon, to carry two primary. - selectable grenades throw force, can pick-up and throw-back grenades. - selectable random civilian spawn with traffic in a range around player. - magazines repack. - random survivable helicopters and aircraft crashes - towing system to recover damaged vehicles or simply bring one more around. - many more little tweaks. as i saied it has no noticeable performance impact, every feature is selectable or can be removed (knowing how edit scripts), are just scripts,so everyone who will join your mission will found this ready and working without need of mods ! this lack of gameplay interactions was killing my game experience, i was about to drop ARMA for other games, but thanks to the help of some guys i was able to make this, and finally play happily! for helping a poor script-noob like me,and sahring theyr work, my best and sincere thanks to (in random order): Dolf,Sarogahtyp,Pierremgi,Kauppapekka, Nikander, BlacKnightBK, Lucullus, Xeno, Ilias48RUS,French R3F team and especially KillJoe, Serena, Fred41,Grumpy Old Man, Tankbuster, Larrow, Midnighters, Davidoss,Zorilya,Stealthstick...and everyone else that helped! i will not name them, but i wish to let you know that there is people that called me "troll", laughted at me and closed my post about fixing the game just for pointing out that ARMA, after 16 years of development, still lacks very basic features, and that developers should take care of this problem. afterall, thanks to the "good guys" that helped me (a lot), seems that was possible in simple way and few time to fix the basic features, with no noticeable performance impact at all. i still dream about devs giving one single day of theyr work to fix once for all the basic ARMA features...but seems that is just a dream. THANKS AND HAVE FUN ! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EDITED CONTENT LIST --- edited where needed by Dlegion just to merge properly all togheter ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BETTER GRENADE THROW -- by Serena DRAG & DROP & melee -- by llias48RUS dual_primary_weapon -- by Nes Monartis Explosives_To_Vehicles -- by zooloo75 magazine repack -- by Outlawled (updated to 3.1.2 by GiPPO) survivable crashes -- by r0ed 3D explosives & re-throw -- by zorylias enhanced movements -- by bad benson R3F logistic system -- by R3F team (i cant share this because i dont have permission, i'm sorry about that, i suggest you to download the original from: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=26159 or if you wish to apply logistic to everything, contact me, i will explain how modify the script ! ) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ADDITIONAL CONTENT FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE, i use this addons that are compatible with vanilla ARMA3 (you can join a server with them even if you dont have the addons) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- enhanced movements -- by bad benson ( to climb obstacles ecc...) unlocked uniforms -- by haleks ( can wear any game uniform) A.R.E.S. -- by antonStruyk ( better zeus functionalities) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- well...i did my best to make it easy and keep modularity: SIMPLE: copy the "MPMissions" folder into your arma3 main folder for use with dedicated server, and/or in your : C:/user/YOURuSERnAME/documents/arma3 folder and/or C:/user/YOURuSERnAME/documents/arma3 - other profiles now you can play my mission with all script included and working directly from editor, or making a server (on dedicated works best) ADVANCED: same as simple, but if you know how script, you can customize the scripts you want by using the included stand-alone versions (already edited by me). you will find all single scripts in a folder with theyr name. obviously you can take the scripts to use with YOUR own mission!! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ============ E D I T =================== MISSIONS INCLUDED: DWAR Domination mission DWAR 1.0 is a domination mission (Xeno style, to get the idea), set on Altis island (so vanilla compatible), that features 4 teams: RED and BLU have theyr own bases at the extreme corners of the island, have some vehicles that will respawn (if destroyed) with different times, unlimited arsenal (on some vehicles too), H.A.L.O. jumps, and theyr objectives is capture all randomly selected towns one by one (by default in GREEN hands). Island itself, and its towns, are dominated by GREEN faction by default, that uses A.I. bots to populate and defend critical locations. player can also play as GREEN, helping A.I. to defend islands from BLU and/or RED invasion. if you want you can play as civilian too, the island is populated by random civilian on foot and civilian traffic on roads, so you can easily get disguised as a A.I. bot. civilians have no specific mission, but they can disturb other factions plans :) technically you can play as spectator too, lol. other than primary targets (the randomly selected towns) there is always a randomly selected secondary mission (save hostages, destroy objective, stole vehicle ecc) and there is in the middle of the island a central airport with a factory, where you can build any kind of vehicle or structure for free, so its very important conquer it and hold it! to add some variation, 4 squads of RED and BLU start from the respective bases and move to the middle of the island, fighting enemys on theyr way, and trying to capture airport and near zones, and as they ger killed, they respawn at bases with same objective! (so you have to face random situations where there are enemys in random places of the island). CTS capture the suitcase mission very simple CTF style mission, RED and BLU team both have to take a suitcase, and bring it to extraction point. the interesting feature here is that this mission never ends, you just get credits to spend on your factory when your side win. and every round is different because it choose a random point from more than (hand placed) 50 spots, then randomly place all other objects like HQ,extraction points ecc...in a radius of +200 -200, this create so many possibilieties that every round is unique (your HQ or extraction can spawn on water too, for example, making for scuba fighting rounds). ========== E D I T =========== please, feel free to suggest other awesome gameplay scripts you wish to see implemented in this pack, i will do my best to merge them (if author gives permission)!
  9. hi all ! i was searching for a script that has the same effects as ACE3 explosives (i no longer use ACE3 because i want to keep it compatible with vanilla), and i found two great scripts, 3D explosives by Zorilya http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=22059 SMS explosives by Voiper http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=28266 now....both have theyr strenght and weakness, like 3D explosives miss the feature to detonate a specific charge and not all togheter, while SMS has this feature, but lack a good placement system (cannot stick to vertical surfaces, cannot move mines in water ecc...) my question is this: anyone knows a vanilla compatible script/addon that has all this working? in case of a "no" .... i already tried to merge both, and was successful, but due to my lack of script ability, i'm actually placing 2 mines at once, one for each script, and i need a simple line to not drop the second mine if there are less than 2 in inventory! can somepne help me ? thanks !
  10. how do you make it so that a trigger will fire if there's 2 explosive charges in a trigger. I followed the advice on here but it didn't work: Also, how do you make it so that a trigger will fire if an explosive goes off inside of that trigger
  11. hi all! to cut it short....are 16 years that i suffer from missing features like "attach mines to vehicles" and so on, and i tried to post on general topic a possible solution, but topic was closed asap, seems they like bugs, not solutions! ...so...i'm searching a script maker, good enought to understand/create complex script for MP with JIP in mind, that help me to merge togheter already existing and working scripts, adapt them to the needs, and make sure they all works for good in a MP/JIP environment. obviously, for your time i will offer a generous donation, and the glory will still be yours !! note that i will not asking impossible or too complex features, just already existing ones to be merged togheter (i understand it may mean in some cases to rewrite the script, but thats why i need your help!) in fact i made most of them work togheter, but i lack scripting skills, and i feel its kind of "not efficient" and wish to make them more streamlined! as examples, i will need to merge scripts that: enable charges to be attached to objects and vehicles, and underwater. interact with ambient objects , like move a box. set hand grenades launch force ecc... if interested, please contact me at ddelfino@hotmail.com thanks for your time guys!
  12. Hopefully I'm not suggesting this too late in the development cycle but I'd like to see some improvements to the ancient action menu. I was very pleasantly surprised when Apex control preset came out which removed weapon switching from the action menu and reduced the clutter. I suggest taking it further and cleaning it up some more. I don't know about you guys but I hate menus, I hate interacting with them mid combat and getting arma'ed by them and so on. 1. Give us an option to remove certain actions from the action menu I personally think we should be allowed to remove actions such as: "Get Out" and "Eject" when there are keybinds for those (default V and 2xV respectively). I cannot count how many times me and other players been ejected from a vehicle when trying to use a certain action which disappeared for a split second when another player used an action and Eject option was the first one in the menu which got selected in that split second. Yeah it is so broken when it keeps resetting whenever someone else uses it. Additionally we have keybinds for: Engine On/Off; Lights On/Off; Turn Out/In; Gear Up/Down; Flaps Up/Down and some others I can't think off at the moment. Would like it if there was an option either in game options or controls to remove specific actions from the action menu so as to allow to customize it for those that prefer using action menu for some reason and keep everyone happy 2. Introduce a quick access/hot key system for inventory items So we can stop placing explosives on the helicopter or transport truck as we are trying to board it while the action menu keeps resetting because our fellow comrades are also trying to board it at the same time. What I am proposing is essentially an MMO style hot key system which would imo benefit Arma greatly. By default Apex Preset uses "1" for primary weapon, "2" for secondary and "3" for launcher. So player could assign his own keys for each quick access slot which would show the corresponding key bind like in the mockup image bellow. Then the player would drag and drop the items from uniform/vest/backpack into the quick access slots. Additionally it could be used not only for explosives but grenades as well. For example you press number 5 and your character switches to an RGO grenade. While I would prefer character actually holding the grenade in his hand like in FPS games since the 90s I'm not sure Bohemia can afford the animator labor? I could live with Shactac/ACE style floating grenades in front of you. Regardless I think Red Orchestra2/Rising Storm did grenades very elegantly in my opinion. You aim with your ingame hand and cook grenade at the same time, how intuitive :O Here's a Satchel You can throw the Satchel too 3. Improve opening doors/windows Could we have the door icon attach to doors, windows in the actual 3D world space so we know which door is about to open/close? Seems relatively simple If icons were to attach to doors/windows you could then remove those options from the action menu and look for an icon prompt instead. I also noticed that when giving move commands to AI there's an arrow that seems to attach to objects. So it seems that there's already a capability in the engine to attach HUD elements in 3D space. Anyway these are my suggestions. Looking forward to more suggestions and a discussion. Hopefully it's not too late to get the action menu improved
