Hi all,

New armaholic,

Is it possible to have a specific unit or group set to free roam constrained to a radius centering on another unit?
The idea is to have a scouting team just doing their thing, scouting around, while still following another group that is following its own path, is this feasible?
The scouts should be prepared to fire on enemies, like sniper cover for the main group but able to maintain independence of movement.

Thanks,

Cosmo

I did something similar to this with a tank and a group of infantry. I had a script loop (infinitely I believe) and every iteration it would give the tank a new waypoint x distance behind the infantry group. This way the tank could support the infantry without having to be actually grouped with them.

Hey,
Thanks for the reply,

This is very interesting and I think I understand what you mean by infinite script loop, would you tell me how to implement that?
