  1. Explosive Drones Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) The enemy is even using suicide drones against us! Will even that be enough to stop us? 1.] Hypothesis: Malden. Every square inch we have fought for. Now CSAT is trying to get it all back! They have already conquered La Trinite and they are now attacking Le Pessagne. One of the reasons why we cannot stop them is due to a new tactic of theirs. That is the use of suicide drones… CSAT is equipping their Tayran AR-2 drones with explosives of all sorts and they crash them on our troops causing mayhem. Infantry, vehicles, friendly drones, civilians are all torn apart by their drones. Due to the size and flight height we cannot defeat the drones. Even when we shoot them at close range they blow up and cause distruction. So what do we do? We send you to destroy the drone construction facilities! What you have to do is head to La Trinite, find and destroy all of the drones stationed there. Doing so will sabotage their new tactic and let our troops reclaim all lost territory. 2.] Important details: a)When 2 players play the one should be the THE GROUP LEADER of the IGNORING TRAFFIC team while the other should be THE GROUP LEADER of the BOOM CANDLES team. b)This mission has low replayability. Once and if you manage to complete the mission successfully you might never play it again. c)To show the exact positions of the drone stashes on the map, the Group Leader of the Ignoring Traffic team has a FRIENDLY ASSISTANCE action in the laptop standing in front of him. d)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in your team. Those units should exist for your convenience. e)Respawn:Instant but no respawn for the tank 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: Two markers might not change color when the drone stashes are clear. 4.2]Serious: None 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory. Place the .pbo file at the mpmissions folder. 6.]Website SubLink: here 7.]Direct Download link: https://dl.orangedox.com/Arma-3-Missions-Pack-1/explosive_drones.malden.pbo?dl=1 Your feedback about things we can improve or things that we should keep is really important so you providing it would be great. If any of you wishes to reconstruct the mission or use part of it please ask permission and mention us in your credits. Enjoy
  2. Hello world. I'm glad to share my project for Arma 3, I have been working on it a few months and i think is time to make it official. The mod is aimed to cover some units and equipment currently in service -and some in current development- with the Argentine Army. Vehicles: TAM Family: TAM 2C ** TAM VCTP (Armored IFV) TAM VCPC (Mobile Command ) TAM VCRT (Recovery) VCA Palmaria (155mm Artillery ) TAM VC AMUN (Supply) LVC CP30 Agrale Marrua M10/M20 HMMWV Variants Polaris MRZR-4 Ford F-350 TSCR (Comms) --------- Static objects: Tents (inc.variants) Ammo Boxes MANPADS RBS-70 Skyguard M /FCS Oerlikon GDF-002 AA CALIV 105mm ** CITER 155mm CARDES (Disposable demining tool ) ** UAV: MALE VIGIA-2A ** -------------------------------------------------------------- There's so much to do, and this are my first steps on modeling and texturing, a good way to improve my skills 🙂 I'm not will made a 100% accurate version of vehicles and objects. The mod is set on year 2035. Some equipment gonna be upgraded on that timeline. [All content are subject to change without notice. ] More updates soon! Forgive my bad English .-
  3. "Reunion 1983", SP East German tank company breaking trough the borderline in a large scale combined operation. Take the role of a tank company commander and lead the company of 12 vehicles with HighCommand system to reunite the Germany right now under the fair, socialist order, the collective regime of peace and love. Subscribe on Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1747514280 Key features: Feel the atmosphere of the Cold war gets realy hot, inspired by such movies as "Threads" (1984) and "Doctor Strangelove" (1964); Good old OFP-style intro and outro cutscenes, narrative brieffing and a voice action; Approximately 45-60 minutes of gameplay; Do not pay attention to the casualties, comrade commander! There is thousands of volunteers claiming in the place of each dead conscript! No mods at all, only an official "Global Mobilization" DLC. Be advised, this is a SINGLE player mission, the Steam probably marks it as a MP one because of use of the teamswitch. Also pay attention that this is a very large mission, so in some moments it can require additional system resources. If you like large-scaled single missions and wanna to see more, then take a second to rate "Reunion 1983" and add it to your favorites! Don't forget to subscribe also "The Iron Cowboy" - the large scale mission about the NATO tank company on Altis; And "The Iron Scimitar" - the similiar CSAT tank company action on Malden.
  4. Good Day Devs! despite the sunset of the Arma3 life span, I still hope that the game can be improved in the following patches. I would like to talk about countermeasures that are useless vs AT-Missiles. I often ask these questions: 1.What for in the Arma3 there are vehicles countermeasures ? Is this only protection from not Guided rockets (like RPG-7, like RPG-42 etc), while against Guided AT-missiles it should be useless ? 2. What for in the Arma3 have a signal of an approaching AT-missile (inside land vehicles) ? In order for the player to understand that he will die in several seconds? If countermeasures don't work against it, then the signal doesn't make sense Still I have no answers... When an opponent launches a guided AT-missile into a player's vehicle (APC, Tank), the player hears a shrill warning (beep), but why he hears it is unclear - the player will always be destroyed together with vehicle. AT-Missile approaching - At this point, the player can only make the following actions:. a) The player can release one smoke (from two available) b) The player can release smoke (from two available) and change his position (move). c) A player may release two smoke (!more his vehicle not have). d) The player can release two smoke (!more his vehicle not have) and change his position (move) And this is all that is possible in Arma3 and all 4 options will lead to the inevitable death of the player and his vehicle! Dear devs! if you read this, please explain - what is the point in the signal indicating the approaching AT-missile, If a player’s vehicle is not able to resist this threat? PS: I propose finally to set up counter measures in an adequate way. If in Arma3 there is no active vehicles protection, then the vehicle must be able to withstand enemy AT-missiles, and the number of smoke screens must be > 2. Today, armored vehicle survival is very low.
  5. Dear Developers! I send this request here, because I don’t want to wait for years until it is noticed on the feedback, There are always more chances to be noticed. Please reduce fire accuracy of subordinate AI-gunner vs air-targets: I'm not saying that a tank cannot shoot down a helicopter, but such a scheme - one shot - killed, one shot - killed, one shot - killed - is not normal. The player inside the tank (commander) has the ability to kill helicopters from the first shot (120mm cannon), while other tanks (AI) will not shoot at 120mm a helicopter in generally! It turns out that when a player is in a tank and his opponent is a AI-helicopter, then the player has the advantage before AI (player can destroy the helicopter from the one-two shot). Or when a player in a helicopter and attacks a AI-tank, he again has the advantage! (since the AI in the tank will not shoot him) As seems to me - All you need to do is to adjust the fire-accuracy (much lower) of the AI-gunner in the tank, against air targets, then it will explain why the AI does not attack the helicopters with the help of 120 mm - this is not effective. Or set it up so that the AI can also use ability fire helicopters. If I am mistaken and such sniper-accuracy is possible in real life, then give the AI the same ability! This will correct the deformation of abilities - Player/AI Repro steps: 1. place in the map your tank (player commander) 2. place in the map enemy helicopters (must move in your direction) 3. run game and order to your gunner attack them
  6. When I received news that the tank control on the commander's position had been changed in the test, I hoped that this would be just a test. But today I received an update of 1.78 and I saw that the new control on the commander's position looks disgusting. Excuse me for this word, but I can not find other words. This is not in the style of Arma. main troubles of the new control-system: 1. There is no feeling that the tank is controlled by another person. The player feels the opposite, namely as if he is a tank driver! It just spoils the sensation of the sim-game. 2.There is no difference in the control of the tank from the commander/driver positions. The only difference is the presence of voice orders. Otherwise, it is the same. Thus commander == driver. Then for what driver is need? Only for the fact that it's necessary to gameplay, not more. 3. The game automatically forces the player to stop the every rotation/movement of the tank, (when player release the A/D/W/S buttons). It looks arcade. In the old control-system, to stop the tank was needed a special order (s-button), which need in spent time as in reality. 4. The sound of voice commands does not match some orders and irritates the player. infinite "stop", "stop", "stop"... 5. Even after this update, the tank controls is not accurate. Many scolded AI-Drivers, because they could not be exact, but the new system is not better! If the player tries to stop the tank, it will continue move about another 10 meters before stopping. Or if you drive forward, hold down the W button and then release it, then some more distance the tank will go further. It's not like inertia or something adequate. In this sense, the old control-system was more accurate, since the AI driver stopped the tank's movement/ rotation exactly at the current position. Among other things, this does not correspond in any way with the voice commands of player character. Why does the character of the player after each order must say "Stop"? After each turn right/ left player character says - "Stop". Now the player automatically says "Stop" and does not choose when to stop the tank! Every few seconds the player hears - "Stop", "Stop", "Stop", "Stop"! It looks irritable to the player's ears. Among other things, a normal, adequate Stop command does not sound exactly when it's needed! For example, when player as commander accelerate tank forward (hold the W key) and press "S"-button, player hear not "Stop , player hear "Backward". Note! Yes, player says "Backward", but if In this case, the tank does not go back, it just stops! Why "Backward"!??? In order to actually go back, you need again to press the "S" button and again hear "Backward! OMG I do not want to hear this! @Bis you broke the old and unique Arma tank-control (which was not in any game!) and replaced by this arcade control. Please complete your test! I want to believe that this was just a test! May be some users will say, that the new tank control looks more convenient. Blah, Blah...Yes, yes, yes! perhaps it is more convenient, but this is less realistic for a sim game and this does not sound adequate (voice commands of player character). Arma never looked for more convenient ways, Arma always oriented on realism. New tank-control It looks arcade, I think this is more suitable for other games, such as Battlefierd or COD. @BIS please return the previous control of the tank to the position of the commander or give the player some choice in the game settings! Player would not want to spoil impression of the Arma game.
  7. With Tanks DLC one of our priorities is to improve the feeling of driving a tank or any other tracked vehicle. Refine how the vehicles perform, handle or simply how enjoyable they are. What do the improvements consist of: updated PhysX libraries to 3.4 and switched wheel contact queries from raycast to sweep. We believe the precision and reliability of terrain traversal has improved quite significantly. On the other hand it's been a change that undoubtedly affects already released content. Especially the n-wheeled vehicles and tanks. Watch out for new issues with us, please. Report anything suspicious. And if your own mod got negatively affected by the update - get in touch with us asap ;) revisited physics configuration of individual vehicles, their engines, drivetrains and suspensions. Together with new config. properties and options. revisited sound configuration, with new samples and new approaches AI tank driving - AI driving feedback topic, following up on previous AI car driving refactoring player tank commanding changed to direct control over the vehicle (test) Most of these changes are WIP, to test things and get feedback from you!
  8. The Mech Superiority Project The mech superiority project is a mod project intended to bring mechs from some of everyones' favorite animes to ArmA. Currently in production we have the Humanoind autonomous Knight, also known by fans of Code Geass as the Knightmare frame. This project has several goals before its completion; first to make functional mechs capable of not only participating in combat, but being a serious tactical weapon. Second is to make an effective and realistic pilot system, this goal comprises of multiple things; effective switching of weapons for mechs, defensive systems (shield usage, interceptors, etc), cockpit design and functionality. Third is to work on maneuverability (Flight, boosting). 4th goal is to have awesome giant mech battles. We intend to use the knightmare frames as a proof of concept before moving onto the much larger Mobile Suits from various Gundam series. Armaments To help accomplish the first goal two sets of armaments have been chosen to be both as faithful to the source material, and as effective as possible. The Knightmare is the equipped with a Knightmare Assault Rifle -2 (Name below was a typo). Mounted on top of the missile launcher which holds 4 90mm HEAT rockets, and underneath is a 5.5 machine gun. The slash harkin is a bonus for precise alternate fire, although it's firing will be limited it is a powerful weapon. This weapon system allows the knightmare to fight a variety of enemies effectively. The second sent makes use of an 120 mm cannon capable of taking out even more heavily armored targets from greater distances. Current Progress We have progressed to the configuration phase along with some texturing. We've hit a hiccup in the configs and it is slowing down our progress somewhat but we continue forward. Seeking Help/ or Join us in the fight We are currently looking for modders interested in being a part of this project to help us complete this project and achieve goals. If interested in helping or joining us in the good fight join us on our discord at: https://discord.gg/YK7wDmQ Our Mod Team Zephyrsouza
  9. Hello. I want to keep the reload sound of the tank from outside. I have been looking for a way to do this for 5 months, but I could not find a solution because I am not good at English. The current situation is where Leopard2's reloadsound from BWMOD can be heard from both inside and outside. Other addons are not (e.g. RHS M1, T-Series, Arma3 Basic Tank etc..) I want to find a solution to this problem. I checked to see if the Sound.cfg of the other addons was different, but I didn't see any difference. There are many experts here, so I ask you a question. Please help me. What I want: (Reload Sound will not be heard from outside (3 person)
  10. Hi all, Remember FURY? An American Sherman, lost in core of Germany, surrounded by Nazi troops. STEAM link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1560958858 Here, the scenario takes place at Zargabad, (a fine CUP map). Your crew of 4 plus a US soldier are stuck in the middle of a Taliban's nest. Your Abrams is out of order and out of gas. Challenge is simple: Repair the Abrams, refuel it and escape!... Perhaps. The mission is SP or MP up to 5 players, with HEAL & REVIVE feature for AIs and player(s)! You can heal or be healed in both SP MP but it's preferable to play in "MP one player" for mission parameters. You will be leader what ever the slot you choose. In SP, you don't die. AIs fellows can heal you as you're unconscious. If not, you'll respawn after 2 minute bleed out. You can heal them as well. You can enable/disable Arsenal crates for players. So, required mods are CUP only (+CBA as dependency). I recommend also: - enhanced movement (even if this is not the best corner of map for using it); - MGI tactical pack, for beginners or smart players (not using the whole stuff, but you can stick charges on vehicles) Have fun!

    Hoovering tank

    Hello, I`m making a Norwegian version of the Leopard 2A4. Only have a few bugs left to iron out, but I have hit a wall with this one. I have tried: - Adjusting every physX setting I can think relates to this. - Main PhysX are as follows (weight 62000kg) sprungMass=4428.5714; springStrength = 324000; springDamperRate = 36000; - All LODs should be centered - All related memory points have been rebuild many times. - I have tried settings from BI Example tank, Burns M1A2, BW mods Leopard. With no same results as seen above. I cannot for the life of me find the issue. Thanks in advance for any help!
  12. Hey people. I'm working on config for a tank, using other tanks as references to make sure my values hit at least close to workable. Trouble is...I can't seem to get the damned thing past about 28km/h.

  14. M2 Slammer Firepower Upgrade Project Current version: v6.1 Hello, I have created a little config mod with adds a new tanks based on the M2A4 Slammer tank for BLUFOR. It's my first mod like that so not everything works perfectly, so if you have any suggestions how to fix, or improve, certain elements, feel free to weight in. It was done mostly to figure out how to properly edit the config files. THIS MOD DOES NOT CONTAIN NEW MODELS (sadly) [FLUFF] NATO found the existing M2A1 firepower to be lacking. To fix this issue the "Firepower Upgrade Conversion Kit" has been developed for the M2A4 Slammer with was already upgraded with the TUSK (although M2A4 only had 105mm main gun). Along with the improved armor of the M2A4 variant, the additional firepower of the M2A6 is something to be respected. It can still carry troops as well, making it a unique jack-of-all-trades armored fighting vehicle. However, recent high intensity conflicts have shown that a highly trained and motivated enemy, as opposed to usual goat pushers NATO likes to stomp on, can withstand suppression from .50cal MG's. To rectify this, two further modifications to the M2 Slammer has been designed, based on the successful M2A6 Firepower Upgrade; the M2A7 and M2A8. For both, the gunner's 12.7mm coaxial machine gun has been replaced with 20mm autocannon, with has much bigger shock & terror impact on the infantry. The "Designated Infantry Combat Killer" variant, the M2A7, sees commander with 20mm Grenade Machine Gun instead of usual .50cal. The 20mm GMG have been proven useful in dealing with the infantry in cover. The M2A8 is a slight variation of the M2A7. Not happy with decreasing the long range engagement capabilities of the commander's weapon system in M2A7, the NATO engineers came up with the idea of mounting and "Advanced Suppression System", in a form of an 20mm autocannon, for commander's use. While the cannon lacks some of the splash damage 20mm grenades had, it allows for a long range engagements, retains most of the shock value, and can serve as an anti-air weapon. [/FLUFF] Features 4 new Slammer variants: M2A6, M2A7, M2A8 and M2A9 The main features of M2A6 Slammer Firepower Upgrade:new standalone tank for BLUFOR (just for compatibility's sake), the M2A6 improved armor of the M2A4 variant M2A6 can still carry troops enhanced optics for both, commander and the gunner. 2 new extra zoom levels and the commander gets an additional ultra wide default zoom (old one is still included) FLIR modes changed to black and white 120mm main gun ability for main gun and gunner's MG to lock onto ground targets (MG can lock onto air targets as well) with impact point calculation and automatic range and leading correction for moving targets 12.7mm coaxial machine gun for the gunner (Ma Deuce still got it) with 3x500rnd magazine with ability to lock onto air and ground target, impact point calculation and automatic leading for moving targets commander's MG now has impact point calculation ability to launch guided anti-tank and anti-air missiles, in both wire guided as well as fire-and-forget modes commander has a fully functional laser designator available for designating targets for other M2A6's, aircraft and such commander can fire 82mm mortar rounds, 8 shells in total AI gunner, once locked onto laser designated target, keeps following it allowing for guiding really tricky shots as a commander the M2A6 AI crew is aware of laser designated targets and will engage them, meaning UAV or infantry designation for the M2A6 is possible improved the engine power so the tank is more nippy and feels better to drive The main features of M2A7 Slammer Firepower Upgrade Cannons Infantry Terrorizer:further firepower enhancement of the M2A6 all of the advanced M2A6 features (laser designator, CCIP, 82mm mortar, etc.) 12.7mm coaxial MG has been replaced with a 20mm autocannon commander's MG has been replaced with 20mm Grenade Machine Gun The main features of M2A8 Slammer Firepower Upgrade Cannons Advanced Suppression:further firepower enhancement of the M2A6 all of the advanced M2A6 features (laser designator, CCIP, 82mm mortar, etc.) 12.7mm coaxial MG for both commander and the gunner have been replaced with a 20mm autocannons The main features of M2A9 Slammer Firepower Upgrade 140:further firepower enhancement of the M2A8 most of the advanced M2A9 features (laser designator, CCIP, etc.) commander loses his mortar no passenger capacity in exchange for more ammo new 140mm main gun with ammo: APFSDS, HE and FAE. The new gun can still fire missiles new 140mm main gun has a 4 shots autoloader with 5.5s delay between each shot and 20s magazine reload time new 140mm ammo: a thermobaric rounds (140mm FAE). They have pretty low damage, but they have huge splash radius less nippy then the other variants due to added weight of the bigger gun and ammunition (it just doesn't get the improved engine other variants got, it behaves like vanilla M2A4) Classnames B_MBT_01_FU_F - M2A6 classname B_MBT_01_FUC_IT_F - M2A7 classname B_MBT_01_FUC_AS_F - M2A8 classname cannon_120mmFU - new gun classname cannon_140mmFU - new 140mm gun classname mortar_82mmFU - commander's mortar classname HMG_127_FU_Hull - gunner's machine gun classname HMG_127_FU_Commander - commander's machine gun classname 20mm_cannon_FU_Hull - M2A7 & M2A8 gunner's autocannon classname GMG_20mm_FU_Commander - M2A7 commander's grenade machine gun classname 20mm_cannon_FU_Commander - M2A8 commander's autocannon classname ultra_Wide - new, additional, minimal zoom level for commander extra_zoom1 - extra zoom classname extra_zoom2 - new additional maximum zoom classname Sh_140mm_APFSDS - 140mm APFSDS shell classname Sh_140mm_HE - 140mm HE shell classname Sh_140mm_HET - 140mm FAE (thermobaric) shell classname 4Rnd_140mm_HE_shells - 4 round magazine of the 140mm HE shells classname 4Rnd_140mm_APFSDS_shells - 4 round magazine of the 140mm APFSDS shells classname 4Rnd_140mm_HET_shells - 4 round magazine of the 140mm FAE shells classname Known Issues 1. I have created a new gun based on vanilla 120mm, the classname is "cannon_120mmFU", its rather important as some script might require the gun classname to function properly (smart tanks for example). Also the model of the M2A4 is unchanged, meaning the gun still has 105 model, but it's not really all that noticeable. 2. For some reason the commander's weapons only get lead indicator when target is locked in by the gunner and for that target only. I think it's some engine limitation. 3. The AI likes to fire AT missiles first, so M2A6 only gets 2 AT missiles 4. Sorry, but this one is rather janky. I couldn't get the artillery computer working for the commander, it only worked for gunner and he didn't have the mortar available to him. You will need to eyeball it when firing. Also due to how turrets and such work, the mortar shell is fired from the commander's MG. 5. It's pretty random what weapon AI will use to fire at the laser marker, they like to fire AT at it. Also, they do not always spot the marker, so moving it around their field of view might get their attention. 6. With the new autocannons AI REALLY likes them for some reason, so far it may fire them at targets like APC's and such. If anyone knows how to limit that: drop an info. 7. The new CCIP has some issues with ACE, if you use the ACE FCS to range the target the CCIP will NOT be corrected for new range. This more of ACE issue with Arma 3 then with my mod, I'm sure it wil be fixed someday. Changelog v6.1 - current version * automatic leading and rage correction for the gunner returns * 140mm gun changed to be more like a World of Tanks autoloader: 4 shots in the magazine, 5.5s delay between shots, 20s magazine reload * lowered pitch on the 140mm firing sound to make it sound more powerful * added muzzle flash to 140mm (just artillery firing effect didn't have that for some reason) * added magazine reload sounds to 140mm * nerfed splash damage of the 140mm FAE (thermobaric) round, from 50m to 30m * changed ammo composition for the A9 with 140mm, now it has 4 round magazines with overall ammo count same as before, more or less * AT missile magazine to be bigger v6 * new variant the M2A9 with a new 140mm main gun. The new gun is bigger so commander lost his mortar in this variant and the passenger compartment was converted into ammo storage. The added weight makes the M2A9 slower then the other variants (it just doesn't get the improved engine other variants got, it behaves like vanilla M2A4). It still gets the 20mm autocannons as secondary guns * new 140mm gun gets new ammo as well with better stats then 120mm shells * new 140mm FAE shell. This thermobaric round has a low damage, but huge splash radius, ideal for taking out large groups of infantry * improved the engine on the M2A6, M2A7 and the M2A8. The tanks feels a bit more nippy especially on slight inclines. * lowered artillery charge of the commander's mortar to 30%. 50% made it shoot too far and it was hard to lob shells over close obstacles * removed the automatic leading correction for gunner. I discovered it could mess with your aim, the new lead indicator is shown instead, same as with commander v5 * new additional zoom levels for commander and the gunner. The commander also gets a new extra wide zoom level * FLIR modes for commander and the gunner changed to black and white * commander's mortar: reload time increased to 6 seconds (from 1.8), artillery charge dropped to 50% (from 70%) * 20mm cannons got another slight buff to RoF (still slower then 20mm GMG) * reduced magazine number for 20mm cannons and 20mm GMG, removed 1 magazine each v4.3 * fixed an issue in with commander's weapon systems were automatically corrected for targets aimed by the gunner. Now commander only gets target lead indicator, so he can fire at other targets without aim being messed up. v4.2 * fixed some of the 82 mortar issues: removed 2 firing modes so you only have 70% artillery charge, now you only need to press button once to change from mortar. Removed firing effect from the main gun * fixed AI sounds for 20mm cannons, now they are same as player's * 20mm cannons got a tiny RoF buff * decreased the amount of ammo for v4.1 * fixed the AI rate of fire and sounds for autocannons, hopefully without braking it in other ways v4 * two new variants for the Slammer, M2A7 and M2A8. Both now sport 20mm coaxial canon. The M2A7 is the infantry killer variant with 20mm GMG for the commander. The M2A8 has 20mm cannon for commander instead v3 * M2A6 now has it's own custom version of the .50's for both commander and the gunner. Both sport impact point prediction and gunner's MG can track air targets as well as automatically give lead to locked moving target. Those are custom in order to not create any possible compatibility issues * cleaned up config a bit v2 - fixed ballistic computer prediction, for now main gun can only lock onto ground targets, AA missiles work as they did v1 - initial release Download (Mediafire) Armaholic mirror Play withSIX mirror

  16. Hey. Some thoughts that have poked me... With the reception interiors of armored vehicles , it seems to me, that time comes for a useful update, which can greatly improve the gameplay of Arma3. Today, (v1.80) inside the vehicles AI or the player does not have the ability to treat themselves, despite the fact that majority vehicles abound with medications. This fact looks, at least strange, if not more. It seems to me that adding the ability to heal itself inside vehicles would be a perfect addition for Tanks DLC, since interiors can now allow the addition of self-healing animation inside vehicles. I think this feature is simply necessary for all passengers. On the positions of Driver / Gunner / Commander this may be a matter for discussion. Here's how I see the details. if vehicle has medicaments, then: 1. On the passanger places the player or AI must be able to handle a wound. The AI always should do it independently (if he is injured and is inside) 2. With the reception of armor interiors, self-medication inside the vehicle must have the treat-animation in the sitting position. (one anim for all sitting) 3. If the AI leaves the vehicle and this AI not have a first aid package, then it should always take a nominal first aid package (one) with them. 4. The quality of the self- treatment inside the vehicle can have a different coefficient of recovery and can differ from self-treatment outside the vehicle (more or less effectively depending on the position and situation) @BIS, please think about these details. This can significantly improve the upcoming Tank DLC and the entire Arma platform as a whole
  17. Hey I'm trying to add some additional damage simulation to tanks and was trying to figure out how to disrupt sensors and displays. DISPLAYS: I've found the render targets for the example vehicle; "commander_display" and "driver_display", but I can't quite figure out how to modify them. I don't know how to refer to that render target for that vehicle when using a command like setPipEffect. SENSORS: So some vehicles have incoming missile warnings and such. Is there a way to disable these? I'm thinking I might also be able to disable data link send/receive. Are there any other sensors or electronics I may be able to disrupt? Cheers
  18. Hi, Does anyone know how to force animations for tracks on a tank? I want tanks to follow the road in a mission, and I belive this can be done by attaching it to a car with attachto (it appears to work anyway). However, the tracks does not move, so it looks silly. I know that a way to force a tank to move along roads is to make the leader invisible, and use setpos along the road (30-40 meters at a time) and make the tank follow, but this makes for a very sluggish ride. Anyone who has any ideas (preferably a seasoned scripter or developer)?
  19. MGI ENHANCED TURRET Last update 09/05/2018 Hi all, Here is a little script allowing AI gunners to fire HE shells on infantry. I hoped Tank DLC will improve some AI features about targeting and ammo firing possibilities, but it seems not. So, running this script makes gunners load some accurate shells to fire with cannon. It's complementary to MGs. On the other hand, I tried to overwrite the targeting engine as far as the present BI one consider a team leader more dangerous than an AT soldier... The result is disastrous, of course. I gave up with this idea. If it's easy to choose the best threat to be shot, it's impossible to override the engine to order the gunner to watch, aim, fire at the chosen target. Engine has its own life... as usual, commands do nothing persistent (working) on that. parameters: none (at this time) Script can be added in init.sqf or initServer.sqf 0=[] spawn { while {true} do { uiSleep 4; _allCannonVehicles = vehicles select {local _x && isNil {_x getVariable "admitVeh"} && !(_x isKindOf "WeaponHolderSimulated") && (getText (configfile >> "CfgVehicles" >> typeOf _x >> "editorSubcategory") in ["EdSubcat_APCs","EdSubcat_Tanks","EdSubcat_Artillery"])}; { _x setVariable ["admitVeh",true,true]; _x spawn { params [["_tk",objNull],["_tgt",objNull]]; private _wpnTrt = _tk weaponsTurret [0]; private _cannon = (_wpnTrt select {getText (configfile >> "CfgWeapons" >> _x >> "nameSound") == "cannon"}) select 0; if (isnil "_cannon") then {_cannon = ""}; if (_cannon != "") then { _cannonMags = getArray (configFile >> "cfgweapons" >> _cannon >> "magazines"); _cannonReloadTime = getNumber (configfile >> "CfgWeapons" >> _cannon >> "magazineReloadTime"); _magsDetail = magazinesAmmo _tk; _magsDetail apply { _class = (configfile >> "CfgAmmo" >>getText (configfile >> "CfgMagazines" >> _x select 0 >> "ammo") >> "aiAmmoUsageFlags"); _usage = if (istext _class) then [{(getText _class) splitString " + "},{[str(getNumber _class)]}]; _x pushback _usage;_x }; while {alive (_tk turretUnit [0])} do { _gunner = _tk turretUnit [0]; if (!((_tk targets [true,700]) isEqualTo []) && !isPlayer _gunner) then { _tgts = (_tk targets [true,700]) apply {[_tk aimedAtTarget [_x],_x]}; _tgts sort false; _tgt = _tgts select 0 select 1; _magsDetail = _magsDetail select {(_x select 1) > 0}; if (((_tgt isKindOf "landVehicle") or (_tgt isKindOf "CAManBase" && diag_tickTime mod 30 <= 6)) && _tk currentWeaponTurret [0] != str _cannon) then { _tk selectWeaponTurret [_cannon,[0]] }; call { if (_tgt isKindOf "landVehicle" && !(_tgt isKindOf "car")) exitWith { for "_i" from 0 to count _magsDetail -1 do { if ("512" in (_magsDetail select _i select 2) && (_magsDetail select _i select 0) in _cannonMags) exitWith { _tk loadMagazine [[0],_cannon,_magsDetail select _i select 0]; }; }; }; if (secondaryWeapon _tgt != "" && diag_tickTime mod 30 <= 6) exitWith { for "_i" from 0 to count _magsDetail -1 do { if ("64" in (_magsDetail select _i select 2) && (_magsDetail select _i select 0) in _cannonMags && !(_tk getVariable ["loaded64",false])) exitWith { _tk loadMagazine [[0],_cannon,_magsDetail select _i select 0]; }; }; }; if (_tgt isKindOf "landVehicle") exitWith { for "_i" from 0 to count _magsDetail -1 do { if ("128" in (_magsDetail select _i select 2) && (_magsDetail select _i select 0) in _cannonMags) exitWith { _tk loadMagazine [[0],_cannon,_magsDetail select _i select 0]; }; }; }; if (_tgt isKindOf "CAManBase" && diag_tickTime mod 30 <= 6) exitWith { for "_i" from 0 to count _magsDetail -1 do { if ("64" in (_magsDetail select _i select 2) && (_magsDetail select _i select 0) in _cannonMags) exitWith { _tk loadMagazine [[0],_cannon,_magsDetail select _i select 0]; }; }; }; }; uiSleep _cannonReloadTime; } else { uiSleep 2; }; }; }; }; } forEach _allCannonVehicles; }; }; Feedback welcome.
  20. The Stridsvagn 103 (STRV 103), also known as the S-Tank, was a Swedish post-war main battle tank. It was known for its unconventional design: it was turretless with a fixed gun traversed by engaging the tracks and elevated by adjusting the hull suspension. While turretless armoured fighting vehicles are usually classified as assault guns or tank destroyers, despite its unique gun laying process the Strv 103 is considered a tank because its designated combat role matched those of other tanks within contemporary Swedish doctrine. It is the only tank of any kind since World War II to dispense with a turret. The Strv 103 was designed and manufactured in Sweden. It was developed in the 1950s and was the first main battle tank to use a turbine engine. The result was a very low-profile design with an emphasis on survivability and heightened crew protection level. Strv 103s formed a major portion of the Swedish armoured forces from the 1960s to part of the 1990s, when, along with the Centurions, it was replaced with the Stridsvagn 121 and the Stridsvagn 122. Introduction The mod in question is a 1960s Swedish Main Battle Tank with a unique design. No turret and a fixed gun. Madness you say? Indeed. This tank was designed with defensive operations in mind, following Swedish army doctrine. Its unique design allowed a lower profile tank that was capable of digging itself into a hull down position (note the Fold-able bulldozer) to hold off against its enemy. Keep in mind that in the 1960's most tanks had no form of stabilizer as they do today, so the conventional tank had to stop to fire, so this left the 103 with no disadvantage to other tanks of its time and that is also the reason it was scrapped in 1997 replaced with a Swedish variant of the Leopard 2A5. Tank in Arma 3 Crew spot WIP. The 103 was crewed by 3, A driver/gunner, a commander, and a systems operator. All 3 members could drive the tank (Systems operator only in reverse). No loader as the 103 had an AutoLoader with a 4 second reload time. The tank was powered by two engines, a diesel for slow cruising and maneuvering the tank in aiming, and by a Caterpillar turbine, it was the first use of a turbine engine in a production tank. It armament Consisted of Bofors 105 mm L74 rifled gun with 50 rounds, its Secondary armament's were 2 fixed 7.62 mm KSP 58 (swedish FN MAG) machine guns 1 anti-aircraft 7.62 mm KSP 58 machine gun. An interesting point to note is that the tank is fired and aimed by the driver, but the commander also had the option to do this. An interesting point to note is that the tank is fired and aimed by the driver, but the commander also had the option to do this too, it was possible to operate the 103 by one person. Now on to the suspension, since the gun was fixed the whole tank had to move to aim at something, it did this by engaging the tracks and elevating by adjusting the hull suspension. Here is a video of it in action: http://youtu.be/HUPfnAbFlfU?t=116 Since my discovery of this tank, its has led to me actually wanting to see it in Arma 3 and I thought Id share the progress, I will have a working version in a few day's and I will want to test it, so tell me if your interested.

  21. Hello there, I've been making some player+AI vs AI tank-on-tank scenarios for quite some time and lately I'm getting somewhat tilted by the fact that in a head-on engagement NATO vs CSAT tank-on-tank scenarios, the results are often heavily skewed in favour of the CSAT t-100. I was sure the problem wasn't due to the tank per se. I've seen some partial unbinarized MLOG p3d of both the Slammer and t-100 and found that the slammer does have overall more armor thickness in the fire geometry. So I did some testing and I found out that when going up against the Slammer, an AI, especially a 100% skill one will converge its aim around the turret ring of the slammer, which is its weakest spot from the front, while when an AI goes up against the T-100, its aim converges around the upper plate, the strongest part of its frontal armor. My question is, how does the AI determine the point of aim against tank targets? Is this set in a cfg file somewhere? Is there any way to tweak AI's point of aim at all? Cheers.
  22. Hi Devs! Just some impressions of gameplay in the Heavy Armor Interiors. For me, unfortunately, playing inside the tank interiors, I got a big disappointment. On the one hand, the player sees beautifully modeled interiors. Yes, from the visual point of view, it looks great, but on the other hand, when you play inside, there is not even the slightest simulation which is necessary, according to the current interior. The my first problem - the player teleports through the bulkheads of the vehicle. I hope that there are people for whom this is also a problem. Soldier can change his position (driver/gunner/commander) in half a one second and go through any walls not taking into account the current interior. This point already leaves a not good impression for player. Next, I continued to play and noticed that the internal simulation inside the any tank or APC is just zero! After all this, I do not understand what the interior was for? It only looks nice but does not carry any functionality. Devs and users, please look at these screenshots. This is a interior of criticaly damaged tank: You can see that this tank is damaged by 90-98%. "HULL", "ENGINE", "GUN", "LEFT TRACK", "RIGHT TRACK", "TURRET" - they all have critical damages , but inside tank, there is not even the slightest visual sign of any damage! a) where is the smoke inside the cabin? b) where are the sparks? c) why do all the devices work as if the tank is not damaged? d) when you play in the cockpit there are no alarms! (alert sound, flashing light bulbs etc) e) when players tank get heavy hits, player not observe any slightest shaking/sway f) when players tank get heavy hits, player not observe any slightest sound of this heavy hit g) at any damages the glass of observe windows do not have cracks Devs, I hope after release TnaksDLC, you'll add at least a some simulation to beautiful interiors of all armored vehicles. If a tank of player get hit 120 mm or Missile Hit, then the player must feel it - there must be a sway and sound of hitting! If the tank is critically damaged, then the player cabin should have smoke, sparks, the screens must have picture interference or even lost vision, there must also be alarms
  23. Due to 3den enhanced editor allows to set fuel amount in liters (fuel cargo volume)in vehicle attributes and due to there is, for example, static wagon tanker (Land_wagon_tanker is classname) who operates as refueling point, I am searching for a way to refuel that somehow. -Situation on the field looks like: There is transport base sector with those wagons installed and every of them have working refueling ACE system. There are trucks who need to enter this base and transports fuel on the field to helicopters, boats and other vehicles involved in separate operations accros the map. Once the truck cistern or wagon volume of fuel is depleted, is there a way to refuel that? -Setups and tried solutions: 1. Trigger activated by radio Alpha onAct: MyFuelTruck setFuelCargo 1; (don't work-it stays the number of liters what I put in editor 1000 and if I refuel some vehicle with, for example 100 litres there is 900 left in truck/wagon due to I set it to 1000) then I fire the mentioned trigger or in debug console put this setFuelCargo 1; or MyFuelTruck setFuelCargo 1 ; while sitting it that vehicle - nothing happens. (not added fuel in cistern tank). 2. All trucks have correct variable names same as ones in the onAct field of trigger 3. I know that I can place 10000 liters in Fuel Cargo Volume field and be good with fuel for upcoming 10 years but I search for some realistic environment of that base and also set up some addAction things which moves wagons by line of rails from big fuel reservoars to station logistical points in the middle of the base to simulate logistical operations inside base so I need refueling system to set up somehow. Thanks guys I hope I am writte this understandably.

But problem is when i drive a tank and when try to use break or just stop holding move key vehicle raises the rear and can overturn on other side. How to fix this problem ? By the way other staff like trucks and light mechanized armor dont have this problem. If somebody know how to fix this pleas help
