  1. Welcome to Vandeanson's Basebuilding! In this thread I will cover everything about my WIP basebuilding mod. V0. 2: feature showcase and introduction V0. 3 - I have re-written the blueprint creation function. It is now easy for users to add new custom blueprints or delete default blueprints when creating a mission. - added an option to rotate the object (the object that is being built) - added an option to get object closer or further away (max distance can be limited, currently at 5m) - GRAD persistency enabled for placed stuff (tested in client hosted and dedicated) - placed objects can be destroyed, you get back scrap materials (which can be refined into other materials again later) - moving an object will save its new position via GRAD - added a few new materials - added place-able light source with on / off switch. I plan to add a feature that requires a generator connected. See light showcase: next steps: - release updated showcase video - add more blueprints - add GRAD setting to save collected material per player - "Move" and "deconstruct" addactions to be saved via GRAD - adding possibilities to destroy other players placed objects - adding blueprint spawners, so players can collect and learn new blueprints - material traders - loot system for all materials that may be found (currently wood, stone and sand can be farmed) Looking forward to receive any input, suggestion or ideas from the community. A playable mission demo will follow shortly. Cheers VD

  6. Siege of Athira Persistent survival PVE/PVP SP/Hosted MP (10 players)/Dedicated MP mission (10 players) It is something I always wanted to play. Basically you are surviving NATO soldier in besieged town. Town is besieged by CSAT and inside you are trapped with few surviving guerrillas resistance. Groups/singles of guerrillas fight each other in town and you need to go out from your hideout under town to find equipment and food. Food is found at houses furniture and equipment usually on dead bodies or guerrilla secret boxes scattered around town.Every raid that last 90m you need go out and then find shelter entrance randomly scattered around the town to get back to your underground hideout. If you die in town everything you had with you is lost and you born as new NATO survivor. Everything that is stored in hideout stash is safe for your next life. You cannot escape town cos CSAT snipers and there is zone between town and factory that you need be careful to cross it. During night you can use chemlights and attach it on you or wait for CSAT flare for snipers above town or use gun lamp or if lucky NVG.Only vanilla ARMA 3 is needed. No mods and no DLCs are required.

  8. Hello ARMA community, today I release my next RAVAGE mission. Have fun! Short overview: Title: RAVAGE MORGENTHAU PLAN SCHWEMLITZ Version: 1.0 Author: tourist Type: SP/COOP 1-5 Roleplaying Game Respawn: Base/Markers Game Version: created and playtested in SP and MP Dedicated Server on 1.84 Stable Language: English or German Sceenshots: YouTube Channel featuring clips and Episodes of this mission and my other RAVAGE missions: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsOXKlspvVe5HGSNlSbveFg Features: Survival Roleplaying Mission featuring the awesome RAVAGE Mod in an "Escape the Island" Scenario inspired by cosmic's mission Play in the rural area of Schwemlitz County. Combined RAVAGE with HEROS Survive for added level of immersion and gameplay value: HEROS offers a temperature system, sawing wood, trading goods, quest items... Generally speaking the HEROS items work with double-clicking them in your inventory like the RAVAGE items do. Some of them can be merged via action menu; most important for this mission: water purification pills+water container of any size=purified water Mission puts you in an alternative timeline where after WW2 the Morgenthau Plan has been enforced upon Germany. Google it, and google the novel "Morbus Kitahara" by author Ransmayer as well. THIS is a setting where a Sandbox Survival game can shine! The map is Schwemlitz cuz it's quite rural - and looks like really German coutryside, not polish or ukrainian like the IFA3 maps. There will be a few „modern“ items in loot and purchase – but the gunplay is deliberately limited to the WW2 tech. Play alone or as a small band of brothers in arms, all of you German soldiers returning from the time in a Soviet POW camp with nothing but the rags on your body. You have to fight for your life against Bandits and US Soldiers who roam Germany. The former to fulfill their needs by whatever means necessary, the latter in search of these Bandits and with the task to eliminate all "Rebel/Werewolf" units as well (represented by the armed BLUFOR RAVAGE Survivors who fight the Bandits) because NO German man is allowed to have guns! EVER! AGAIN!!! Choose to play it as sandbox until you die. Or you could try to do the quests: find enough Dollars to bribe an Allied Forces Official to give you a Passport for, say, France or USA. Or steal blank forms out of his safe and then forge yourself a passport. Or maybe search for one of those - nowadays privileged - former victims of Nazi crimes who might have such passport - and kill him for it! Really? Who would play a person like this? I don't know, but ARMA is about freedom. So ofc it's also a possibility to play as an absolutely ruthless "Inglorious German Bastard"... Civilians, farm animals and wild boars present and some loot to be found in settlements, but VERY FEW vehicles - after all, the Morgenthau Plan was about to crush Germany's economy and society for good. Weapons? Ammo? Hmm, try to pull off a Silent Takedown Attack on a Bandit or sneak into an US ARMY post and steal some hardware. You might try to scrape the money together to buy a combat knife from the stationary trader/questgiver, but he will NOT have guns in stock!!! Also there is rumors about a couple of US supply airplanes that have crashed in the Schwemlitz region - maybe the Russians have found a few Nazi super weapons to bring down airplanes with soundwaves or magnetism? But dontcha think these crashsites were freebies: the US Rangers are heading out to each of the crashsites FAST; and if they see you there, they consider it trespassing and shoot you. Wait, what? why don't they shoot you anyways? Because of INCON INCOGNITO!!! I've tailored this script to my mission with great detail so you can wear Frith's Ruin clothes or CIV clothes from IFA3 & RDS & BIS to pass for a civilian as long as you keep any weapons concealed and don't come too close to the soldiers. Also the bandits will leave you and the "real" CIVS alone, making it possible to sneak up on them and do the silent takedown if they see through your disguise too late. The script options I've tried to make OPFOR shoot ALL CIVS don't work fully yet. They do just aim at the CIVS - kinde like extortion or "Your Money or your Life“ style. Stationary trader and questgiver in a shop opposite of the Weste Train Station where you start. Go there at least once to receive the main quest and it's subquests! (Keep the book he gives to you in your inventory) Further enhanced by usage of George Floros immersive script suite tailored for RAVAGE: GF Crashsites creates random airplane crashsites with Recovery Recon Teams hurrying towards them make every playthrough different even in SP GF Drop Loot lets all killed people drop money or other items you might sell to the trader. Only two start and respawn locations (Weste Station as start and additionally a hidden camp in the woods for respawn) in MP for all players – go find yourself some old comrades, Feldwebel! And if your online friends let you down because of this lame excuse called „RL“, you can recruit any blufor AI with the RAVAGE recruiting system or at two places in the mission via Spyder Addons Recruiting mechanics... AIS/A3Wounding System for the Revive – this is the HOT stuff cuz it works in SP also! See ingame Briefing hints for instructions on using that awesome piece of code and for the settings active in this mission! If you have any AI subordinates or play SP, your teammates will all be able to heal each other and you. In „mixed MP“ with some humans and some AI, the AI will also help the humans, even if those AI buddies are NOT the „Combat Medic“ class. Play as a small group through an adventure challenging you to show if you're ready to stand by your friend's side or rather choose to abandon one or even all of them in the face of mortal danger... Different win endings depending on your success and playstyle/ways & means to achieve your goals (still WIP) I'm happy to announce that this mission offers a persistent task with several sub-tasks. I achieved this by utilizing the convenient fact that ALiVE saves a player's or a container's inventory. Subtasks are either repeating tasks for the stationary trader to help you earn some money or different ways to achieve your overall goal of obtaining a passport that allows you to leave the mission area and thus „win“ the mission. Loot in props and furniture is very scarce and weapons and ammo even more so. Go hunt a few boars or other animals, or trade non-edible loot for food. Added ALiVE saving (local save, NO WarRoom Account necessary!) and player modules to the mission – this means you can use BIS save or ALiVE save in SP and only ALiVE save in MP. I have chosen to do so because the ALiVE save gives full object and inventory persistence for any and all boxes or vehicles or even loot objects left on the ground which players access during a SP or MP session. The usage in this mission is just for the persistence; so you don't need a Master Degree in ALiVE Gameplay. In fact, you won't even need a B.A. In SP, just press the ESC button and then you can choose between the usual „Save&Exit“ button or the „ALiVE SP Save“ button. Loading happens automatically when you start the mission. Even if you don't see the usual „continue“ button in A3 Scenario list, don't worry. ALiVE essentially emulates it's MP save resuming system when you use it in SP. So once you are ingame again, it will load the previous session's state automatically. You can also use ALiVE for managing your survivor team or for some debug/cheat options. If you want this, just press the „application“ button or whatever you have chosen to associate with ALiVE Menu. If you die in SP while using ALiVE save, you won't get a „reload“ button. Instead, quit to main menu and „restart“ the mission. You will load your last manual ALiVE Menu „Player Save“ or your last „ALiVE SP Save“ made on exiting the mission last time. In MP, you should try to get access to the GUI that lets you make an individual player save with ALiVE. You'll need that save if you want to leave the server before the other players or before the player who is Admin shuts it down. Speaking of which: easy as well! As Admin, press ESC, then choose „Server Save & Exit“. That's it! Once you do that, you save any players still on the server. Also in MP, the resuming of the mission is automatically. Oh, and you can move stuff around in the gameworld if it's not too heavy to lift. Crates, barbed wire, dropped weapons... Also you can load boxes (and their inventory) into your vehicles and later unload these again with mousewheel actions if the boxes are in a distance of 2 meters or less from the vehicles. ZOD unarmed/silent takedown Script used to give all players the ability to defend themselves with their bare hands at game start and/or support a covert gameplay later on. After all, you are former WW2 soldiers who have fought on the Eastern Front and were then imprisoned in a Stalinist GULAG. You have learned all there is to learn about unarmed and melee fighting! This script allows me to actually let you play through the grim experience of coming to a shootout wielding not even a knife (if you load KA MELEE, you can buy a combat knife from the trader, though...), but just a pair of empty hands! Now go and create some vids of your ragged game characters charging towards a bandit armed with a gun and beat him to death! Please do so with whatever battle cry your nation habitually yells out! HINT: Germans would most likely yell „YAAAAH!“ or „HURRRAAA!“ if it goes into real primal/trench fighting. More sophisticated battle cries depend on the unit: „Horrido – Joho!“ for most infantrymen, „Panzergrenadiere – Dran! Drauf! Drüber!“ for mechanized infantry, „Panzer – Hurra!“ for tank troops. CREDITS: First I'll credit the creators of the used tutorials and templates because without their work I couldn't even have started A3 mission making, modded game or vanilla, and of course special thanks goes to all RAVAGE specific tutorials! Haleks for his kind help in the RAVAGE release thread and the MP testing PM thread cosmic10R for his RAVAGE templates MacScottie/Jester814 for providing his very motivating and beginner friendly YouTube Tutorials Psychobastard for his PDF A3 Editing Guide in German and for his AWESOME Revive Script AIS/A3 Wounding System rsoftokz for his ROADS mission sproyd for his A3 Editing Guide in English Next to be credited are the friendly forum members or YouTubers (listed alphabetical, not by amount of help) that helped me either with code, with direct communication to solve various specific problems during the creation of this mission or by testing the mission together with me bad benson for his general coding tips, hints to useful scripts and general ideas on mission balance and our broad exchange on the different approaches to achieve a high realism level in the ARMAVERSE cosmic10R for his RAVAGE templates, for his great Escape!

  9. Hello ARMA community, today I release my third RAVAGE mission. Have fun! Short overview: Title: RAVAGE CASTAWAY TANOA Version: 1.3 Author: tourist Type: SP/COOP 1-10 Roleplaying Game Respawn: Base/Markers Game Version: created and playtested in SP and MP on 1.78 Stable Language: English Sceenshots: YouTube Channel featuring clips and Episodes of this mission and my other RAVAGE missions: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsOXKlspvVe5HGSNlSbveFg Features: Survival Roleplaying Mission featuring the awesome RAVAGE Mod in an "Escape the Island" Scenario inspired by cosmic's mission Play in the beautiful Tanoa Archipelago. Once a tourist paradise, but now a very dangerous place to be! Further enhanced by usage of Bad Benson's immersive script suite tailored for RAVAGE: Temperature system makes campfires an absolute necessity – so getting wet from a little moonshine swimmig tonite is not a good idea if you can't warm up afterwards! Random Helicopter/airplane crashsites, vehicle spawns and airdrops make every playthrough different even in SP Random start and respawn locations in MP for all players – go find yourself a crew, Captain! And if your online friends let you down because of this lame excuse called „RL“, you can recruit any blufor AI with the RAVAGE recruiting system... AIS/A3Wounding System for the Revive – this is the HOT stuff cuz it works in SP also! See ingame Briefing hints for instructions on using that awesome piece of code and for the settings active in this mission! If you have any AI subordinates or play SP, your teammates will all be able to heal each other and you. In „mixed MP“ with some humans and some AI, the AI will also help the humans, even if those AI buddies are NOT the „Combat Medic“ class. Play as a small group through an adventure challenging you to show if you're ready to stand by your friend's side or rather choose to abandon one or even all of them in the face of mortal danger... Different win endings depending on your success and playstyle as a loner or as a team I'm happy to announce that my new "Tanoa Castaway" mission offers a persistent task with several sub-tasks. I achieved this by utilizing the convenient fact that ALiVE saves a vehicles position, health, ammo AND fuel state if any player has accessed the vehicle just once before the ALiVE savegame is made. Subtasks are to find three radio relays, then refuel their generators (depicted by a generator trailer and a truck with empty fuel tank) to finally power them up and send out a long range SOS. NOTE: Once a truck is refuelled, a player has to hop in&out once and then the session can be saved. After loading the ALiVE savegame, the trigger for checking the generator trucks which is set to repeatable on purpose will fire again due to ALiVE object persistency having saved the fuel level of the trucks. And once the "refuel" tasks are complete, the preliminary "finding" tasks also complete once again Did I mention this mission features a "digital sailing course"? You have to move from island to island either by paddling a PBX boat or motorboat with empty fuel tank (max speed 9 km/h) OR by sailing a yacht with up to 20km/h IF you sail it well and according to the "ropes" you get tought by a Field Manual entry and by an in-game GUI! Mission designed to make use of the improvements that came with RAVAGE 1.4.7, namely loot and equipment module variety: now props will spawn and lootable trash piles and furniture are there for you to scavenge. But beware: all loot types are only available in logical locations – so you won't find sniper rifles in a banana plantation's outhouse anymore! Phronk's „Addon Free Melee Script“ used to give all players a wrench as melee weapon at game start. Since the script is meant to work on items hand-placed in Editor, I didn't litter the whole map with axes, knives and whatnot. I simply give you a showcase of this cool script and the offer to try a unique playstyle fitting IMHO very well into an A3 RAVAGE mission. This script allows me to actually let you play through the grim experience of coming to a shootout wielding not even a knife, but just a wrench! Now go and create some vids of your flip-flopped game characters charging towards a bandit armed with a gun and beat him to death! Please do so with whatever battle cry your nation habitually yells out! Added ALiVE saving (local save, NO WarRoom Account necessary!) and player modules to the mission – this means you can use BIS save or ALiVE save in SP and only ALiVE save in MP. I have chosen to do so because the ALiVE save gives full object and inventory persistence for any and all boxes or vehicles or even loot objects left on the ground which players access during a SP or MP session. The usage in this mission is just for the persistence; so you don't need a Master Degree in ALiVE Gameplay. In fact, you won't even need a B.A. In SP, just press the ESC button and then you can choose between the usual „Save&Exit“ button or the „ALiVE SP Save“ button. Loading happens automatically when you start the mission. Even if you don't see the usual „continue“ button in A3 Scenario list, don't worry. ALiVE essentially emulates it's MP save resuming system when you use it in SP. So once you are ingame again, it will load the previous session's state automatically. You can also use ALiVE for managing your survivor team or for some debug/cheat options. If you want this, just press the „application“ button or whatever you have chosen to associate with ALiVE Menu. If you die in SP while using ALiVE save, you won't get a „reload“ button. Instead, quit to main menu and „restart“ the mission. You will load your last manual ALiVE Menu „Player Save“ or your last „ALiVE SP Save“ made on exiting the mission last time. In MP, you should try to get access to the GUI that lets you make an individual player save with ALiVE. You'll need that save if you want to leave the server before the other players or before the player who is Admin shuts it down. Speaking of which: easy as well! As Admin, press ESC, then choose „Server Save & Exit“. That's it! Once you do that, you save any players still on the server. Also in MP, the resuming of the mission is automatically. Oh, and you can move stuff around in the gameworld if it's not too heavy to lift. Crates, barbed wire, dropped weapons... Also you can load boxes (and their inventory) into your vehicles and later unload these again with mousewheel actions if the boxes are in a distance of 2 meters or less from the vehicles. NOTE: it's not recommended to mix between BIS SP savegames and ALIVE saving in the same playthrough, but if you decide to risk it and for this or for some other reason want to delete the ALiVE savegame, just execute this code in the debug console as sugested in the ALiVE WIKI: Manually clear data from the ProfileNameSpace when running Local persistence using the following commands. Be sure to use Server Exec if running on a dedicated server. call ALiVE_fnc_ProfileNameSpaceClear //removes current mission data only call ALiVE_fnc_ProfileNameSpaceWipe //removes all mission data completely CREDITS: First I'll credit the creators of the used tutorials and templates because without their work I couldn't even have started A3 mission making, modded game or vanilla, and of course special thanks goes to all RAVAGE specific tutorials!

ALL THE SUPPORTED EQUIPMENT AND WEAPON MODS: See the frontpage in the RAVAGE Release thread to find out which mods are supported by default!

Version with Zombies: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1235056836 or https://www.dropbox.com/s/hltxztqt0w8v6a5/RAVAGE_CASTAWAY_ZEDS_1.Tanoa.pbo.7z?dl=0 Version without Zombies: TBD/on user request HERE YOU GO: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1241325229 or https://www.dropbox.com/s/efvq6ab4bjmzaos/RAVAGE_CASTAWAY_NOZEDS_1.Tanoa.pbo.7z?dl=0 UPDATE 1: Changed the Hypothermia damage you receive due to BB's temperature script being active when having low body temperature to increase much slower - after all, the original settings were ideal for a mission on WInter Chernarus, but are too harsh for a mission set in the tropic climate of Tanoa. Updated mission's modules to take advantage of the fixes in RAVAGE 1.48 UPDATE 2: Fixed: Mission had dependencies on Warfare Thai and IFA3; removed these so that both mods are just supported, but not required now Fixed the playable slots/AI buddies being invulnerable Fixed Team Switch being unavailable in SP by re-saving and re-uploading the mission with newest RAVAGE version which has this problem fixed Added: Script allowing to lock and unlock vehicles. Only becomes really necessary to use if you play with one of the recommended AI mods. Wether it's ASR AI or VCOM, you WILL face the problem that RAVAGE ambient AI is stealing any cars they come across – and that could break some of the tasks in this mission. Usage of the unlock/lock script is via action menu. And just in case that you a) use VCOM or ASR AI and b) still forget to lock the Radio Relay trucks after (partially) refuelling them I have set the trucks to lock automatically once all players leave the area to spare you from rage quitting after you haul some fuel across the whole island to your radio relay truck... only to see some dirty thieves drive away with it right before your eyes! UPDATE 3 Fixed: Fixed a possible exploit with the refuelling tasks: now there is a check if you syphon out the fuel again after a generator vehicle has been checked as „refuelled“ - now you can no longer refuel one generator and then syphon the fuel out to use that very same fuel on the other generators as well ;-) Updated mission's modules to take advantage of the bugfixes in RAVAGE 1.52 Added: Radio messages in response to players using radio codes „Alpha“ and „Juliet“ after having successfully refuelled all generators and thus established a radio contact to the EVAC vessel. This way you get a more noticeable feedback on whether your SOS call actually got through to the rescue party and what to do next. A task directing you to meet the EVAC ship which gets completed once you come close to the vessel at the designated rendezvous location. A final task ordering you to actually board the EVAC ship which completes after doing so and thus make more obvious what you have to do to trigger the mission end screen. Availability of the Debug Console for all players to extend a helping hand to all the victims of black computer magic who can't access the console in SP... UPDATE 4 Fixed: Fixed a problem with trigger locality preventing the mission from ending properly
  10. Hello, everyone. I'm making Ravage mission, few players asked for persistent world discovery state and I'm struggling with making that. Basic idea was to store activated trigger names in server's profileNamespace and load this list upon restart and simply activate triggers again. Problem is OR doesn't seems to work in Condition field... or maybe I'm just completely wrong and it can't be done like this. Any advice appreciated.
  11. Hello all! Here is a pure UNSUNG Echo update liberation mod on the map Da Krong! This is literally just a UNSUNG mod mission that you can load up in either the editor or your public/private server to enjoy. Again please let me know if there are any issues that need to be addressed. *ADVISE: This does not include ACE at all. If you would like to variations with ACE Enabled, I will upload copies of the missions to the public* Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you all. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1195582852

    Attrition - Gamemode

    Hey guys, in the past 3 months I developed a new gamemode. Attrition is a capture the zone gamemode for Arma 3 where three teams try to get the majority of the island to win. The goal of Attrition is to capture more than 90% of the areas on the island. Capturing To capture a city, your team just needs to be the majority in the city. Your team gets resources for every city it captured. If you have a whole area, you get a multiplier. Some cities have item-/vehicleshops, which can only be accessed you captured it. Upgrading To upgrade a base, you have to start a vote. The whole team now gets a dialog, weather they agree or disagree. If your vote gets more than 60% yes, the base slowly starts to change to the upgrade. Some cities can be upgraded too if you have captured them. AI Missions To get money, you can sell loot from AI Missions. This is a perfect way to get weapons, vehicles and ammo. AI Missions are spawning random on the island. They are marked on the map as a violett exclamation mark. If there is no unit left, then exclamation will mark disapper. The gamemode is a bit unbalanced at the moment and there are plenty of things I want to add. It would be cool if I could find some people for playtesting.
  13. Got a question I can't seem to find much on, however I've seen missions that do this... I've been trying to run a server for me and my friends to play when we hop on ArmA, right now I'm using RHS and ALiVE to do some guerrilla style missions, I've been using TADST's "local dedicated" server tool, I've enabled the autoInit "persistence" between player joins, but this obviously has it's downsides. - I'm running on my desktop, if I want to restart my PC, I have to close the server (duh) - I can't do an actual dedicated server, I don't want to pay for one or build a server box, so ALiVE's persistence is out of the question, I tried it's "single player save" but it is too much and crashes So this might be a dumb question, but is there a way I can run this server, and have the server save when I exit, then start back up when I re-join with my friends? Basically the same as ALiVE, but save the data local to my PC. Thanks, Envak

  15. Description: This project is no longer active. Cyclone is some sort of persistent cooperative scenario for ARMA 3. In the same spirit of Invade & Annex, but not nearly as mature. As a player, the point of it is mainly to fly/drive/halo to parts of the map where bad guys are and shoot them and disabled some contrived (plot) devices in the area. And then a new task is generated somewhere else so you can do the same thing over and over again forever. These objectives may be fleshed out later on to be a bit more interesting. A pbo of the latest release (v0.3.0-rc.3) is available at https://gitlab.com/sqwishy/Cyclone.Altis/uploads/673c95f8c4a92344718b285d6f02b4cf/Cyclone-v0.3.0-rc.3.Altis.pbo A list of releases with notable changes and downloads is available at https://gitlab.com/sqwishy/Cyclone.Altis/tags The source code is at https://gitlab.com/sqwishy/Cyclone.Altis. A vanilla server running the mission (in eastern North America) is up at 158.69.23.19:2302. There is also a TeamSpeak 3 server at the same address, 158.69.23.19:9987. Feel free to use it to help communicate with others in the server. Changelog: A chronological list of notable changes and their associated releases can be viewed at: https://gitlab.com/sqwishy/Cyclone.Altis/tags. Features: The mission supports headless clients. (The demonstration server is not using them right now due to an bug with ARMA's dedicated server on Linux.) It uses an AI director that I wrote some time ago as a sort of alternative to DAC that does less and is more manageable. I don't know how it compares to DAC in practice because it hasn't seen much field testing, but at least the AI should be more interesting than vanilla AI with random patrols. It's also supposed to run efficiently, but how successful that has been is a bit of a mystery as explained below. Endeavour: At this point I've done about as much as I can on my own. I don't have the resources to test this in private with a large group nor to moderate a public server. So if anybody is interested in this enough to host it, or a derivative of it, you would be doing me a favour. I do intend to maintain the mission for some time.
