Flanky posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGHello I was searching for documentation to ARMA 3 Editor module "Zone Protection". It is calling BIS_fnc_moduleZoneProtection I cannot find any description or use cases. If my hunch is right, it should be a functionality used to create an area where damage is not applied to objects / characters? However BI wiki is very much empty on this module or function. Using function viewer i had a look into the code of the function but i am very much a newbie on arma scripting. While i understood from the code that the module can be synced only with Locations logic entities - documentnation on Locations is equally shabby. I tried in a single player scenario to place a location entity and sync it with this module. To my understanding some area should have been displayed on map but nothing happened. It had no effect. So i would be grateful if somebody experienced could explain. Thank you very much! P.S: Sorry if a topic exists somewhere on the forum explaining it - i was unable to find it.
[SP/COOP-(1-6)] Defending History
JohnKalo posted a topic in ARMA 3 - USER MISSIONSDefending History Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) What you get when you defend your morals? A bounty on your head! 1.] Hypothesis: A country named Skopia. A country which has no history. A country that instead of trying to achieve history worth accomplishments chooses the easy and immoral way out. That is to claim Greeces history. Skopia puts aside all historical evidence suggesting elsewise and claims its people are the successors of the Macedonians. Even though their strategy is disgusting, they cleverly use propaganda in schools and elsewhere. The problem would not be an issue for Greece since Skopia has no grounds for their claims. The politicians of Greece however are traitors and after centuries have now started to agree with Skopia claims. Of course not all people from Skopia are neither ignorant nor immoral. Former Prime Minister Ashtov claims Skopia has nothing to do with the Macedonians. A moral man. A man which has a bounty on his head… 2.] Important details: a)In SP you should be the THE GROUP LEADER of the BFD TRANSPORT team. b)This mission has low replayability. Once and if you manage to complete the mission successfully you might never play it again. c)The convoy should NOT speed up. Speeding up can cause arriving at the delivery point in a hijacked pickup truck d)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in your team. Those units should exist for your convenience. e)The convoy vehicles have got BULLETPROOF windows and tires. Bulletproof. Not invisible. Thanks @pierremgi for helping. f)Small objects have a small area where the action is shown. g)Due to the Arma 3 pathfinding, if the VIP does not get into a vehicle tell him to go elsewhere first and in the vehicle afterwards. h)Respawn:Instant 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Serious combat abilities and basic organizing skills. 3.2]Technical: Arma 3 Apex, CBA, ASR AI3 4.]Bugs: 4.1]Minor: None 4.2]Serious: None 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

Protection zone with a trigger
reapertitanium posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTINGHi everyone, I've tried, by many ways, to make a protection zone. It means a zone where players don't take damage and the projectiles, like bullets and grenades, disappears. I want to make it activated by a trigger. Do you have a suggestions ? Or maybe a code completly prepared. :) Thanks a lot.

CWC & Resistance campaigns - retrospective, comparison
Polygon posted a topic in ARMA 3 - OFFICIAL MISSIONSAlmost everybody is praising CWC and Resistance campaigns, presented back in 2001-02. Why they're considered special? What made them so? What could BIS learn / already did / will do? I'd like to make several points on CWC, how it affected the genre: first serious military story-driven campaign? large scale battles. multiple roles - from infantry to pilot, blackop. varied environments - 1985 conflict spanned across 3 diverse islands. tough, unforgiving gameplay style. difficult choices to make early. good gameplay design - flexible missions, varied endings. player's character progression: not statistical (skills depending on measurable parameters, adding up, etc.), but official/mental - ranks up, survival. excellent premise, storyline, average characters (fitting for military title?). atmosphere (believe it or not - bad graphics is part of it). multiple endings - no stupid cliffhangers. Now onto Resistance, which inherited a lot from CWC spiritually and mechanically: a personal, touching story. survival elements - scavenging, team management. great characters (though, a lot about them remained secret). sense of progression - becoming a leader, establishing an opposing force, advancing. not so political, official. Obviously, each campaign has its own + and -. In some cases, both camps lack military / human logic, probably due to gameplay, also cliches. I'd say CWC was better simply due to its scale. How does / will A3 campaign compare to these? Too early to compare fully, though. Add your own remarks on the topic. Perhaps I've missed something. This thread serves as a restrospective. I could go on into detail further, analyze each mission of CWC & RES, but it'd be 12 years late. :D
