Spirit6 informed us he released the Mission Template Stand Alone GAIA on the BI forums.
Quote : With this template you can speedup your mission making and add intelligence to the AI without scripting one word.
What you get without one word of scripting:
Automated patrols of any kind. Air patrols, footpatrols, vehicle patrols, boat patrols.
Working mortars, artillery, transportation system. Basicly any type of unit is recognized by GAIA and you dont need to do one thing.
Smart AI system that will coordinate the attacks and adjust to what ever the player is doing.
Integrated caching system.
Integrated respawn system (so you can create endless battles)
A shitload more
All of the above by simple adding a line in the init of a group without having to understand anything.
GAIA is the AI system that is used in the mod MCC. With this you can add GAIA AI system to your missions without MCC addon.
This tempLate serves 2 goals:
How to use GAIA if you have MCC and want to use the BIS editor.
Run GAIA stand alone and make missions fast. Completely independent of MCC.
This is meant for mission editors. I will answer anything gaia related but I will not teach you how to use the bis editor. So basic knowledge of the bis editor is required.
Why stand alone?
I know some wanted it for a longer time. I also wanted a showcase for people that have MCC but want to use it in the bis editor. So now you can learn how to do that. The other is to make people aware of the use of this system so you can be our next big MCC fan!
Big_wilk released an updated version of his Gear / Load Out Weight mod on the Armaholic forums.
Quote : This mod alters the default gear UI to include a displaying showing your units total weight in Kg. This display will also change colour to indicate how much fatigue carrying (X)Kg. will cause you.
Gulozwood released an updated version of his Infected Script on the BI forums.
Quote : Based on the "Shaun: a Simple zombie AI" script by Bluebär posted on Armaholic few month ago,
I kept sounds from his script and the "contact" function that check if targets are visible or not.
How infected work:
when spawning he start walking at random points, 100m around his spawn position.
regurarly the infected check if there any uncover target in his line of sight.
if he detect a target he start running at him, if distance <2m he does damage, he will
lose his target if distance >100m then will return walk around his spawn point.
cleaning the mess
added "firedNear" eventhandler
infecteds will investigate gunshot sound position except in case of silenced weapons usage
Laxemann released the LAxemann's rangetables, an Arma 3 Artillery rangetables and manual firing crash course, on the BI forums.
Quote : One of my favourite toys in ACE2 were the mortars or to be more precise, the mortar system.
The vanilla Arma 3, however, comes with no rangetables and has an artillery computer enabled by default, which cripples the art of using artillery to a "click and kill"-kinda thingy.
I therefore began to make (basic) rangetables for the A3 artillery. I fired two shots with the same elevation and measured the impact distance via script, the average distance was then taken. The distances were measured on the flat VR terrain, so keep in mind that all values won't be 100% accurate when you're above or below your target, but they're
very helpful guidelines!
Hiiii5 released his Better Little Bird Mod on the BI forums.
Quote : This mod was created to better establish the little birds as true aerial vehicles. In this mod you will find that all little birds now have countermeasures enabled on them for both designations. Both little birds have been balanced with different speeds to ensure that there is more of a reason to fly the unarmed variant than just one has guns and the other doesn't. With this, I have also changed the fuel consumption rates and fuel capacities very minutely to balance out the game a bit more. These replace the previous little birds and do not affect mods like AGM or other mods that rename the vehicles.
Armed Little Bird - 265 km/h
Unarmed Little Bird - 310 km/h
Snake Man released an updated preview version of the Vietnam: The Experience mod on the Armaholic forums
Quote Snake Man : Vietnam War Mod goes to ArmA 3!
This is only a preview version of VTE which includes:
Vietnamese Village Rebel
Rung Sat Special Zone 12.8 x 12.8km terrain
These are old models ported from existing ArmA 2 VTE.
We are now looking for 3D modeler and texturer to join our team so we can make new content for ArmA 3. Anyone interested, please contact me. We are fully aware that especially the vegetation models look low polygon / resolution, no need to mention that thank you.
Depending on the feedback on this preview release we will continue tweak it, however later date we plan on porting (with help of new modeler/texturer) the full VTE to ArmA 3. If no feedback is given as its been most often the case, this is the only release. Please provide some feedback, it is very much appreciated.
