AI suppressing fire on command
Eogos posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGSo I'm trying to make a mission for my community based in the Pacific during WW2 using FoW, IFA3, etc. specifically a defense mission based off this scene in The Pacific: One thing I'm really trying to capture from that scene and translate into Arma is that opening part of the battle when the Marines are all looking across the river trying to spot the Japanese who are just out of sight in the treeline and then all the Jap soldiers open fire all at once. However I haven't been able to get a good way to really simulate that intense initial opening fire where it almost feels like a wall of fire. I tried using the AI module from ACE in Zeus where you can tell them to suppress an area but that thing barely works (seems to be an issue of compatibility with one or more of the WW2 mods), with half or more of the AI firing in the complete wrong direction for no reason (even when they were pointed at it in the first place) and those that do fire at it are so wildly inaccurate that it's absolutely no threat. The next thing I was considering doing was using this: to record each soldier and some mortars one by one, with me putting the playback and activation in after each one so I could better sync them up but that'd be so incredibly time consuming and a pain in the ass that it'd much better if there was an alternative way that worked almost if not just as well. So if any of you have any suggestions, that'd be lovely.
