  1. This is for Take On Mars user made screenshots only. As always, hotlinking images greater than 100kb is not allowed, and anyone breaking this rule will end up with their infraction level raised and the pictures removed. Also: Please, no discussion here about the screenshots. Do not post screenshots that give away any campaign or mission spoilers, doing so risks an immediate ban from the forums. All replies without an image will now be met with warning and then infraction increases, use the Take On Mars Photography : Questions and Comments thread! (Pending) Broke it already !!
  2. Hello everyone! Today we released another update to the Main branch. This fixes many bugs, freezes, and general unpleasantries. Aside from fixes it also features the newly implemented Materials Refinery, which you can use to break apart MarsRock, Water, Carbon Dioxide, and so on. It also allows recombining of materials. In addition to the Refinery, 3D GUIs have been implemented with multiplayer support, so the Huge Monitor that can be placed on walls is now properly synchronized. Not to mention oxygen zones within the Manned Mobile Laboratory, so now inside you can take your suit off. The MML also features several new monitors, which allow viewing of CCTV cameras around the vehicle, and also allow use of the newly added crane system, which utilizes an electromagnet to grab objects. So here are the highlights in a nutshell: - 3D GUI system for controlling monitors and such, fully synchronized over multiplayer - New crane system on the Manned Mobile Laboratory used for lifting heavy objects - Oxygen zones within the Manned Mobile Laboratory, which depressurize when doors are opened - Many fixes to various crashes and freezes - Many more minor improvements I'd also like to use this opportunity to thank you all for your support, it has been a great year for Take On Mars, and we look forward to seeing you all again next year. To that end I would also like to let you know that the development team will be away on holidays from tomorrow until the 5th of January, 2015. From the dev team, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!! Martin Melicharek (Dram) Project Lead Change Log: 19th December 2014: - Added level of details without GUI to each monitor for better performance - Updated all scenarios with the new Manned Mobile Lab (with crane) - Finished Materials Refinery GUI - Implemented a chemical reaction system in the Materials Refinery 17th December 2014: - Added 3D GUI screen to the Materials Refinery - Fixed issue with NULL pointers to widget when client was connecting 16th December 2014: - Added 3D GUI controls to the Mobile Lab crane 15th December 2014: - Fixed stack overflow crash when assembling/disassembling huge buildings - Fixed crash that occured when starting a multiplayer game, returning to menu, and starting one again - Fixed incorrect info display of scenarios in the multiplayer Create Game menu 12th December 2014: - Added particle effects such as kicked up dust/rocks to footsteps - Added 30sec delay before playing 'active' idle animations on the player 11th December 2014: - Added atmospheric zones to the Manned Mobile Lab - Added dynamic atmospheric zones - Disabled experimental 'zoom-in' to 3D GUIs 10th December 2014: - Added experimental 'zoom-in' to 3D GUIs if holding focus/rotate object - Added 4 CCTV cameras viewable from the driver's seat of the Manned Mobile Lab - Added proper animations to seats in Manned Mobile Lab - Added Picture-in-Picture views for rear, undercarriage, interior, and airlock in the Manned Mobile Lab 5th December 2014: - Added 3D GUI monitors to the Manned Mobile Laboratory, which control the airlock and rear door - Fixed broken packet issue in vehicles, possibly causing crashes in MP 3rd December 2014: - Fixed issue where exiting Gravon from fullscreen had hidden menus - Fixed animations not playing on Atmospheric Processor and Drilling Rig - Added MP synchronization of the Huge Monitor - Added saving/loading of values of the Huge Monitor 1st December 2014: - Fixed crash/freeze caused by a texture handling issue 30th November 2014: - Added synchronization of the cursor for 3D GUIs over the net
  3. I found half of this code on a topic explaining Event handlers and started playing with it while adding a bit more. What I want is essentially a script that will zoom in and show enemy after the fatal shot hits as they fall down. I do not want this for every bullet or non fatal hits(So not using HitPart EH). The code currently includes the bullet camera because without it, it will complain about "No owner" in the RPT and "Generating ST on the fly is very slow" errors. I left that in at this point so you guys can at least test this and see the effect I was going for. Just Run it with a trigger. Any help is appreciated. See code:
  4. Today we deployed a major title update for Take On Mars - our Early Access space exploration game. Highlights of the update include the addition of multiplayer, which enables players to establish the first human colony on Mars in co-op, plus the update implements the first survival gameplay elements. In multiplayer, people have to work together to build a self-sustaining habitat on the Red Planet. One of the key challenges there will simply be surviving the harsh conditions on Mars. With various vehicles and high tech equipment at their disposal, players will have to manage their resources, construct (pressurized) buildings, grow food, recycle waste, and conduct various scientific experiments. Multiplayer progress is recorded via a unique ‘viral’ multiplayer save system, which means that whenever someone saved the game, the save file is shared with all the players who are connected to the multiplayer session. Furthermore, the new update also packs a variety of brand new vehicles and equipment, including a drilling rig, atmospheric processor, material refinery, different types of Astronaut suits, a thruster-powered VTOL aircraft, a fork lift, and many new building parts. Last but certainly not least, a new location has been added: the Apollo 17 landing site on our own Moon. The complete list of highlights from the Take On Mars ‘Survival/Multiplayer’ update: Multiplayer 'Viral' Multiplayer save system (sends save to all connected) Pressurized buildings Drilling Rig, Atmospheric Processor, Materials Refinery 3 Astronaut suits (light, medium heavy) Inventory system (can take off suit, equip tools, eat food, and more) New vehicles (4-seat VTOL thruster-powered aircraft, Fork lift) The Moon location (Apollo 17 landing site) Many new building parts Survival elements (oxygen, food, water, vitamins, and more) Player sounds (grunts, breathing, death, and more) To enlist as a Rover Operation and/or astronaut, you can pick up the Early Access version of Take On Mars now on Steam and Store.bistudio.com . For more information, please visit www.takeonmars.com and remember to follow Take On Mars on Facebook and Twitter.

  6. Hello everyone, I am very pleased to announce the latest news for Take On Mars, the big announcement we've been wanting to let you know about for some time now - the manned mission addition to the game. Firstly to clarify, this is not an additional DLC or paid content, but is part of the already existing Take On Mars game. This means if you have already bought it, you will get it for free. The manned mission, titled "Expedition One" will be the second chapter to the Space Program, the first being the robotic phase. The content will be added progressively through the Early Access program of the game. The first update being due in a couple of weeks. Here is the full press release: Bohemia Interactive, an award-winning video games developer based in the Czech Republic, today announce their plan to launch the first ever manned mission to Mars. The project, which uses 'Expedition One' as its working title, is part of the studio’s effort to explore the red planet and – ultimately – establish a human colony on Mars. While the first space shuttle is scheduled to depart as early as April this year, Bohemia Interactive is still actively recruiting for people to join its marsonauts training program. Expedition One, a content update for Bohemia Interactive’s new sim game Take On™ Mars, enables volunteers to explore Mars from the most intimate of perspectives; through their own eyes. Participants will be tasked with performing a multitude of scientific experiments, constructing habitats spanning from shelters to entire installations, and searching for viable sources of oxygen, water, and raw materials. Due to the limited amount of supplies the space shuttle can carry, one of the most significant challenges for the marsonauts will simply be surviving the harsh Martian environment. As such, participants will have to actively manage their oxygen levels, food stocks, grow plants, and operate drilling rigs in the search for new resources. Unpressurized and pressurized manned vehicles will be at their disposal to increase their mobility across the vast alien terrain. "As a studio, we've always been obsessed with games that explore topics of human fascination", said Bohemia Interactive's CEO, Marek Spanel. "One of those is space exploration. Missions to Mars - from the past, present, and also some ambitious projects for the future - sparked our imagination about what it would be like to be the first human on Mars. We soon felt that this should be the endgame for the Take On Mars campaign." With the arrival of the Expedition One content update, the campaign in Take On Mars will be divided into two chapters. Chapter 1 focuses on the exploration of Mars via the Mars Rovers and Stationary Landers, while Chapter 2 is entirely dedicated to human exploration of the red planet. Those who would wish to embark on this exciting adventure right away will be able to skip the first chapter. However, this does mean that they will start out with fewer resources than those who completed part one of Take On Mars' Space Program campaign. Highlights of the Expedition One mission include: - Take the next giant leap for mankind and leave the first human footprints on the surface of Mars - Drive unpressurized and pressurized manned vehicles to explore the new 8x8 km Cydonia terrain - Build your own habitat spanning from shelters to entire installations via a unique construction system - Live off the land by managing and extracting resources to build your base and keep you alive - Establish the foundations of a human colony on the surface of another planet Expedition One will be made available in the second quarter of 2014. To enroll for the manned mission, people can join Take On Mars’ Early Access program on Steam for the reduced price of 13.99 EUR/ 17.99 USD/ 11.99 GBP. http://mars.takeonthegame.com/assets/img/post_images/tkom_expeditionone_screenshot_01.jpg (150 kB) http://mars.takeonthegame.com/assets/img/post_images/tkom_expeditionone_screenshot_02.jpg (378 kB) http://mars.takeonthegame.com/assets/img/post_images/tkom_expeditionone_screenshot_03.jpg (396 kB) http://mars.takeonthegame.com/assets/img/post_images/tkom_expeditionone_screenshot_04.jpg (353 kB)
  7. Hello everyone! In support of last week’s Workbench update, today we launched a series of mod-making video tutorials for Take On™ Mars. Titled ‘Mars Mod-Maker's Manual (M4)’, the video series aims to help people get started with creating additional or new content for Take On Mars, using the game’s Workbench editing suite. The first chapter - Data Structure & Modifications – kicks off with an explanation of where Take On Mars looks for its data, and how it can be modified. The fact that Take On Mars itself started as a mod for Carrier Command: Gaea Mission explains a lot about the dedication of this team to modding and user content creation. While we’re still adding new content to the game ourselves, with a really cool announcement coming up next week, we’re looking forward to see how other people experiment with the tools used to develop Take On Mars. The Mars Mod-Maker's Manual (M4) should form an excellent starting point. More chapters in the ‘Mars Mod-Making Manual’ series will be released over the course of the next few months – starting with the second chapter about addons, mods and total conversions. Kind and sincere regards from the Dev team, Martin Melicharek (Project Lead)
  8. Hey guys, The Take On Mars soundtrack is available for free download here: http://mars.takeonthegame.com/downloads It consists of the 5 in game tracks. Enjoy!
  9. Hi, I just done a View/Hide Selection in O2... but now cannot get the object to show again. I have tried View/Unhide but it does nothing lol... does anyone know how to unhide objects again please..? Cheers, Marc
  10. This i gonna sound weird....but i was wondering if its even possible to do this...i've been trying...believe me. I'll simplify my code, cause its huge...but basically the algorithm is like this: my fetchFnc.sqf has (gets included) : fetch_data = { _name= _this select 0; _fncName= _this select 1; .....blah blah blah based on _name, and then.... _number= 10; [_name, _number] spawn _fncName; }; I got this in my init.sqf: #include "fetchFnc.sqf"; private ["_name","_number"]; my_function = { _name= _this select 0; _number= _this select 1; }; 0 = [ "George", my_function ] spawn fetch_data; [b]diag_log format [ "After calculations: %1 has %2", _name, _number];[/b] How can i update on my main init.sqf the values for _name and _number to be show in the diag_log ? Cause right now as you can guess it doesnt get the values. I need to get the values outside of the function...I tried making them global variables....still no luck. ps: Cant do "call fetch_data" cause inside there are waituntil functions. I dont mind the script to fail...for example something went wrong and there is no data for _name George...so i send out an error. I can handle that after in my main code. So if _name == "error" then do..... -Thanks
  11. Hello everyone, we just released update 4.1, this simply adds a tool for converting models from the FBX format (supported by most modeling programs) to Take On Mars' internal format, TXO. This should allow everyone to import their own models into the game. Documentation and examples to come soon! The convertor can be launched directly from the game's Steam menu.
  12. I just saw the top banner that says "-%80 discount on all arma 2 titles". I already have A2:CO but the non steam version, I want to have the steam version so I have all the Arma games on steam (already have A:CWA and A3 there), and the A2 dlcs I dont yet have. I have some funds on my steam account so I went into the A2 Complete Collection steam page but the discount is not available there, only on the bistore. Does someone knows if the discount will be available at steam or will be only on the bistore?
  13. Bohemia Interactive’s exploration game Take On Mars today received its third major update. The ‘Tech-Enhanced’ update implements a technology tree, global objectives, improved vehicle landing, two new crater locations, a ‘Probe’ vehicle, and the Soviet-era ‘Mars 3’ lander holding Mars’ first rover, the ‘Prop-M’. Building further upon the early access release of Take On Mars, the new ‘Technology Tree’ system lets players research various technologies, which eventually gives them access to new instruments and vehicles. The implementation of ‘Global Objectives’ means that accomplishments at various locations in the game now contribute to the same objectives, combing the locations into one whole. The added ‘Probe’ vehicle is a simple, single camera, single instrument slot chassis, and is the most basic technology available from the beginning of the Space Program. Last but not least, the two extra crater locations, Lyot and Ptolemaeus, provide the perfect opportunity to explore new terrain with the Soviet-era ‘Mars 3’ lander (also equipped with Mars’ first rover, Prop-M), which is the first vehicle to achieve a soft landing in Mars’ Ptolemaeus Crater in 1971. Rover operators who already signed up for the Take On Mars’ Early Access program have access to the new content right after downloading the automatic update via Steam. Those who would like to do some further analysis can examine the complete changelog on http://mars.takeonthegame.com/. Here are a few screenshots: Mars 3 + PROP-M, the first vehicle to successfully land on Mars. The Global Objectives screen, showing the objectives of your agency and how many missions are left in each to complete them, complete with a progress bar. The all-new 'Probe' vehicle, which is the most basic vehicle in the game.

  16. In support of Take On Mars’ early access development, Bohemia Interactive today released the anticipated Deimos content update. Featuring two new locations and the Zero-G Probe vehicle, the content update also implements new features such as dynamic mission generation and a spectacular new weather system. As implied by the name of the content update, one of the new locations brings players to Deimos, one of Mars’ two known moons. Here, Rover operators can explore three massive craters - each with a diameter of about one kilometer. The second new location inserts players into deep space, on an asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars. “The new locations let you experience movement in a zero gravity environment, adding a new dimension to Take On Mars' already vast aspect of robotic vehicle simulation. This also gives you the opportunity to witness an amazing ballet of asteroids in the Asteroid Belt location. Fellow space enthusiasts will also be excited to learn that the Martian weather systems are also newly present in the game, affecting your vehicles in a realistic manner. All in all, while the real Mars Curiosity keeps making discoveries, Take On Mars keeps pushing forward, improving accordingly with the great feedback we have been receiving from fellow players.†-- Dram (Martin Melicharek, Project Lead) Besides the two new locations, the Deimos content update also adds the Zero-G Probe: a remote vehicle designed for zero-gravity environments, which makes it better suited for Deimos' gravitational pull of -0.0039m/s^2 than regular Rovers and Landers. Furthermore, the new ‘Dynamic Mission Generation’ feature dynamically creates photo, exploration and analysis tasks around the player’s location, whereas the new weather conditions now also include sandstorms and strong winds - providing great visual effects and additional gameplay depth. http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/Deimos1.jpg (420 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/AsteroidBelt1.jpg (310 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/AsteroidBelt2.jpg (261 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/Weather1.jpg (239 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/WeatherTransition.jpg (615 kB)
  17. I don't know if the license.txt file included with every Arma 3 version of Domination I've downloaded was tossed in at the original release of Domination for Arma and then modified over the years by numerous developers/hackers, but it is now invalid. For one thing, if you modify a Creative Commons license, it cannot be called a Creative Commons license any longer as stipulated here: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Frequently_Asked_Questions#Can_I_change_the_license_terms_or_conditions.3F To utilize Creative Commons, the license must be left intact or or any mention of Creative Commons must be removed. As such, the Creative Commons aspect of license.txt is invalid and unenforceable as it violates the terms of use. Unfortunately for the author(s), there is no definition in any valid part of license.txt for "work" or "Domination" which is what most of the rambling preamble to the Creating Commons license references. As such, none of the contents of license.txt contains any valid restriction against doing anything with the code, live streaming, monetizing videos, or uploading it into Steam Workshop. Just thought I would mention it in case anyone actually cared.
  18. Hello everyone, this Friday (6th September 2013) expect to see Steam Workshop support added to the development branch. Though this will appear in the main branch at the start of next week, this will give you the chance to try it out as soon as it is available. Also worthy of note is the addition of our Workbench suite, used to create your own particles, locations, materials, and much more. With the Steam Workshop support comes the full support for 'addons' - modules that add vehicles, locations, models, textures, sounds, and so on, to the game. These can be enabled/disabled in the main menu of the game in the Addons menu. To help you guys get started on making your own addons, we will also release the official example addon, which adds an example location to the game, as well as a 4WD Buggy, complete with a machine gun. Rest assured, this is to simply show what the addons are capable of, and Take On Mars is not heading for "violent exploration". To briefly outline what the example addon will contain, here is a list of goodies: - "Example Crater" location, to show how additional locations are automatically added to the campaign (if their .loc file is defined) and how these locations may be used in the editor and for scenarios - 4WD Buggy vehicle, customizable in the Rover Lab, demonstrates how custom vehicles with varied functionality can be added to the game - Sounds for the Buggy and its mounted MG, engine and so on - Models for the Buggy, including the vehicle itself as well as the turrets - Materials for the Buggy, showing how custom materials and textures may be added Following shortly thereafter will be a couple of videos to help modders get into using the added Workbench suite, as well as a video detailing how configs work, what each sections does, and a video detailing what each part of the example addon does and how it was achieved. Hopefully we will see some spectacular addons coming up within the next few weeks. A lot to look forward to! Just to give a little tantalizing taste of the buggies to come in the example addon, here are a few screenshots: http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/Buggy1.jpg (129 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/Buggy2.jpg (199 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/Buggy3.jpg (161 kB)

  20. Gamepad support!

    Greeting! I have gamepad Logithech F510. ARMA 3 supports it really well for hardcore PC shooter. The only problem is that control of helicopter is quite bad. Z axis and fire battons work on the same triggers. And I can`t remap them? Can you include full remapping for gamepad?
  21. Hello! In order to complement the release of StalkerGB's British Infantry I'm pleased to release Da12thMonkey's Retexture of the Arma 3 CH-49 to represent a Royal Air Force Merlin HC3a. Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/09yqd5w9mzsq7cq/SDC_MerlinHC3.zip
  22. Hello everyone! Together with the announcement of the October plans for Take On Mars, today we released a major update. Landing a complete integration of Steam Workshop, several new side-missions, the Workbench suite for mod-makers, alongside various other improvements and fixes, the 'Mars Builder' update expands the game’s universe and adds new dimensions for players to explore. The addition of Steam Workshop to Take On Mars enables players to upload, play and share a wide range of player-created content – including new terrains, models, and scenarios created with the in-game 3D editor. To kick things off, our team created and shared an example mod pack, which includes a new crater location, a 4WD Buggy vehicle, plus a few options for customizing the Buggy with alternative sounds, configurations, equipment (turrets), and textures. The Take On Mars team is also proud to announce the upcoming Deimos update. Available on October 3rd, this free update includes two brand new locations for you to explore, and a vehicle designed for zero gravity environments, the Zero-G Probe. Furthermore, the update brings along several new features, such as ‘Dynamic Mission Generation’, which dynamically creates photo, exploration and analysis tasks around the player’s location. Another feature is the overhauled ‘Part Failure System’, which makes part failures much more reactive to the weather conditions and player’s actions. Related to weather conditions, sandstorms, strong winds, and dust devils will also be making their debut in Take On Mars with the planned October update. The free Deimos update will be made available through an automatic Steam update on October 3, 2013. After this date, the price of Take On Mars will be also increased to 13.99 EUR/ 17.99 USD/ 11.99 GBP. The game is currently available on Steam (Early Access) and Store.bistudio.com for 9.99 EUR/ 12.99 USD/ 8.99 GBP.

  23. I was searching for a script to teleport the vehicle player where the player clicked on the map and I found this: titleText["Select Map Position", "PLAIN"]; onMapSingleClick "vehicle player setPos _pos; But of course this just change the position of the player and not the height. So I've looked into the wiki for setPos, setposASL/ATL etc, I've tried all the combination but nothing worked. The only way that I found to work is this, where "+150" is the altitude: titleText["Select Map Position", "PLAIN"]; onMapSingleClick "vehicle player setPos _pos; vehicle player setPos [ getPos vehicle player select 0, getPos vehicle player select 1, (getPos vehicle player select 2) +150] onMapSingleClick '';"; It works fine, but I get an error, something like "type nothing expected bool", why?
  24. How can i make the A-143 Buzzard rearm when I land on the airfield? I know how to set it up to rearm when i enter a trigger with the SetAmmo module, but if I have to land on the airfield first?
  25. To Bohemia Interactive. As you know the 360 controller is widely used as a choice for a gamepad with pc gaming. Before the official release don't you think you should have a default settings for gamepads like the 360 controller. I see the game recognizes the controller. Some many people in the beta are having trouble setting this up. We know the game is complex but setting it up and getting to the action should not be. It does help your support of the game by not have that feature. For all other having this issue please reply so we can see if they are listening to our request. Also for those who have figured out the best setting for the controller please share.:cool:
