Hi!
First of all: sorry for my poor english.

Creating hostage rescue mission can be realy frustrating. Especialy the "escort hostage to" part, and i think "join group" is not the best idea. Also ACE3 prisoner feature is not what i want for hostage rescue. So i wrote simple script that i would like to share.

Features:
-Auto switch animation of unit for sitting with hand behind back
-Released hostage will follow player without join to group
-Hostage will take player stance (prone, crouch, stand)
-Player can control hostage by actions under scroll menu:
--Release
--Wait here
--Follow me
--Order get in (when hostage is following you and you point at any vehicle)
--Order get out (when hostage is inside vehicle)
-MP compatible host & dedicated

Parameter(s):
0: OBJECT - unit that have to be a hostage
1 (optional): STRING - hostage "name"

Example:
In unit init field:
0 = [this,"Hostage 1"] execVM "sush_pow_script.sqf";

Changelog
v.2
-added dedicated compatbility

Known issuses:
On dedicated servers hostage stance is not always adjusted (BIS fault, see issue tracker http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=17699 ). Hostage not always go to stance UP from MIDDLE, and from DOWN to MIDDLE. I will work on workaround.

Download (VR example v2):

Does it work on MP?

Anyway thank you very much for this script, it could be really useful, specially if you can use it on multiplayer.

It was written with MP in mind for my clan so... yes it should work ;)
But remember i wrote it for myself and for my needs, so this script is provided "as it is". Script should be JIP compatible also but JIP is not tested.

I'm trying it in a dedicated server and the hostages don't react to the Release action. They sit on the ground and don't move.

You know what it could be?

Yup. My fault. First post updated (link to v2).
There also little issue with stance adjustment, but its BIS fault. Read known issues in first post.

Great hostage script, I used in my mission Rainbow Six Reaper Threat and worked out quite well. Best hostage script I've used so far. Thank for your work.
