Hey. I'm wondering how to make the radio alpha, bravo on so on show up after completing a certain objective. For example destroying a Shilka then having the option of calling in air support after the shilka has been destroyed. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Say you want to make Radio Alpha hidden until a Shilka has been destroyed. To do this you need:

1. The Shilka (of course) with a name, like zsu1
2. A trigger which detects if the Shilka has been destroyed
3. The radio Alpha trigger

Now edit the radio Alpha trigger and in the text field type: NULL

The trigger which detects if the Shilka has been destroyed has below parameters:
Condition: !alive zsu1
onActivation: 1 setRadioMsg "Whateveryouwant"

This hides the radio Alpha text until the Shilka has been destroyed. For Bravo you then would use
2 setRadioMsg "Whateveryouwant"
and so on.

Awesome thanks for that. Also one more question I forgot to ask before. In a mission I want to make I have an idea of letting the player pick the extraction to go to by using the radio alpha, bravo, charlie, and so on. 4 extraction zones. So is there any way to cancel the rest of the radio options if the player were to pick one and not the others?.

Sure, you disable/hide the other radio codes the same way:

If player selected extraction Alpha for example, you remove the others in the triggers onActivation line:
2 setRadioMsg "NULL"; 3 setRadioMsg "NULL"; 4 setRadioMsg "NULL"

If Bravo is selected:
1 setRadioMsg "NULL"; 3 setRadioMsg "NULL"; 4 setRadioMsg "NULL"


2=Bravo
3=Charlie
4=Delta

I think what you want is that every unit has it's own radio for extraction. That is possible, but only if these units are not grouped. Otherwise there is only one radio code for the whole group.
