Hey guys,

I was recently making a mission which consists in:

1 4-man team (Team leader named tm1)

+ 1 insertion chopper

+ Landing zone has an empty car (four seats [fits just fine]) ready to be occupied.

+ An HVT to take down

+ 1 Exfil chopper


Okay, so everything is set up pretty nicely. The team lands at the LZ and disembarks; chopper returns to base and the second Waypoint I put for the team is for them to enter the vehicle which I've properly named "insertionVehicle"

So on the "On Act." of the Waypoint I wrote:

tm1 MoveInDriver insertionVehicle

Probem is that the Driver seat won't be occupied by the Team leader but by one of the squad members.

Well, I've also seen a post where it says that you can put
tm1 GetInDriver insertionVehicle

I tried it, but it gave me an error saying "Expect Nothing".

So the question: How do I make a specific unit board a specific seat and how (if it is trigger activated or Waypoint activated)?

Thanks,
ReCoN

If you want to have a Desitiny, find it first.

OK this could be tricky. I've not got arma loaded to do some testing but...

Have you tried grouping them, then just assigning leader as driver
tm1 assignAsDriver insertionvehicle
[groupname] moveInCargo insertionVehicle

syntax [groupname] in brackets may be wrong, copy a group order if you can find one or do them all individually
getIndriver is wrong, you can orderGetIn I think, but i think the above should work as he is already assigned and shouldn't be replaced - besides, he doesn't need to be driver just to get the group to follow a waypoint, just use driver (insertionVehicle) and move him - if that fails, order the leader to move anyway, he should stay in the vehicle and order ther driver to move

....that's all folks....!

Yes I grouped them. They're a four-man team.

About assigning him as driver. Do I put that in the "On Act." of the Get In Waypoint or in his Init. field?

And the driver insertionVehicle is it in his Init. or On Act. of Waypoint?

I've also not got ArmA ready to preview because I'm gonna go out in a few moments but as soon as I can I'll test all your guys info out okay?

I'll keep you posted on whether or not it worked.

;-) Cheers,

OK, well in the units init would be
this assignAsDriver vehiclename (he doesn't need to be in it at anypoint at this stage)

In the waypoint you could just have 'get in' linked for when he arrives (I like scripting more than editing so I'd have to play around with it - but it should activate once he gets there)

driver (vehiclename) doMove getMarkerPos "wp1"; - is scripting

....that's all folks....!
