Screen of the week

Opteryx released his OPX MLODs on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote Opteryx :
    These are most the old OPX mlods for Armed Assault (ArmA 1).

    A few people have been tracking me down and requesting me to release the ArmA1 OPX MLODs, now I've been kind of reluctant to do this because I've always felt they were subpar quality compared to other content and especially now that they're 6-7 years old, but I figured what the hell, they've just been sitting here on my HD for years doing nothing, so here goes.

    This is most of the OPX content, a few things have been removed for various reasons, but there a lot of content for people to improve on these models if they feel like it.
    I highly encourage people to enhance the quality of these p3ds beyond what I was capable of at the time.

    Also, there are (almost) no source textures present due to my current internet connection being very slow, so you'll have to work with the UV maps and .paa files already released.

    If you have any further questions, just ask in the release thread.

Naught released an updated version of his AI Caching and Distribution script on the BI forums.
This script was designed to dynamically cache and distribute AI units across machines for maximum performance.

    Quote Naught :
    This script will be my first fully-autonomous script, meaning no setup required! This script is completely plug-and-play, with no dirty work required. It will cache all AI units and spawn them when players get close to them, and will automatically distribute AI across multiple headless clients. And the best part is is that you can still use your current method of AI spawning, whether it's through the editor or via a script. The only requirement is making a headless client slot, which is very simple and shown below.

    Now mission makers who have been too intimidated by the script knowledge needed to make headless client or cached/respawning AI missions can utilize all of the performance benefits that it brings with them! Even users who already have implemented headless client will benefit from the script immensely due to the pure efficiency of it's caching and distribution mechanisms, which are much better than most which are already implemented in missions.

    There are a few important fixes in this release, so I'd recommend updating if you can.
    This is a full-release, but does not contain a guarantee of any type of support.
    Bugs and other issues should have been found and patched through testing, but are still possible in the RC. If you find one, report it back in this thread or on the Github issues page.
    This release candidate has been deemed stable enough to be used in production environments. Proceeding v1.0 updates should be sparse, should contain nothing major, and should not be mandatory.

    • Fixed: Crewed vehicles retain their states over caching and distributions.
    • Fixed: Units now properly retain set positions if specified before caching/distribution.
    • Fixed: Vehicles are no longer distributed (needless operation).
    • Fixed: Setting of vehicleVarName should now propagate to all machines.
    • Fixed: Renamed array manipulation function to match syntax (minor edit).

McKnightG submitted his Static C-130J Halo script.

    Quote McKnightG :
    So heres my first template on Armaholic. This is a template that allows the player to teleport to a Static C-130J. Once in the Static C-130J players can walk around freely and halo when ready by exiting out the rear cargo door.

JTS informed us he released an updated version of his Nametags script on the BI forums.
The archive contains both the singleplayer as well as the multiplayer version of this script.

    Quote :
    This is a nametags script. Despite the same colors as in mission 'Evolution' - this is my script.
    Made 2 examples - for SP and MP (for MP means, that names will be displayed only by players). You can change the colors. They are defined in local variable in the script. For now, it supports 30 players. You can change this if it's needed.

    • Fixed bug when you open map

Rydygier informed us he released an updated version of his Sneaky Hunter AI script on the BI forums.
Sneaky Hunter is an AI algorithm that simulates animal-like hunting behaviour of controlled unit against chosen unit(s).

    Quote Rydygier :
    Some time ago I thought, it would be fun to have AI, that will hunt down the player or other AI, cunning beyond simple "Where he is? There? Charge! Argh!". More complex, thorough simulation with many factors handled even for the price of extended CPU cost. Sometimes in such situations I just sit down and write the needed script, and have no peace until done. This is such case...
    Code is experimental. Any feedback, ideas, opinions etc are highly appreciated!

    • This code does some heavy calculations, was tested for single Hunter, and this is recommended number of controlled units.
    • Sneaky Hunter AI is designated as opponent for player, but should work well also against AI. Was tested for single prey for now, but designed also for more.
    • Hunter has to his disposal two customizable senses: sight and smell.
    • Sight is specified by two parameters: light sensitivity and movement sensitivity. It decides, how easily Hunter will spot the Prey according on daytime, weather, size, speed, background (sky or not, surrounding terrain) and knowledge factor (memory).
    • Smell helps to follow not visible Prey by its trail. Each Prey will leave "footprints", that Hunter can scent. Old footprints will be erased, also rain gives small chance for removing some parts of the trail. Smell (range) is strongly affected by wind (direction and strength).
    • If there is no Prey nor trail known, Hunter will loiter randomly.
    • If Hunter see the Prey, his behaviour depends on situation. His goal is surprise attack, preferably from behind. Will charge anyway if close, but otherwise will approach, fast or stealthy, only when flanking the Prey (out of Prey's FOV). If catched in the FOV, depends on situation can hide low and not move or run out of LOS, then try to outflank keeping out of sight (heaviest calculations here including sector-based LOS analyze and pathfinding).
    • Is most dangerous at night, in the dense forest when visiblity is poor.
    • Hunter strikes with bare hands (melee).

    • minor code fixes

Raoul submitted the Simple Airstrike Script by him and Pizzadox.
This script allows you to simply call in airstrikes by using the action menu (scrollwheel).

  • 1x GBU 12 (strikes within 1x1m area)
  • 2x GBU 12 (Strikes within 1x1m area)
  • 4x GBU 12 (strikes within 50x50m area)
  • 8x MK82 (Strikes within 50x50m area)

Wolfenswan released an updated version of his Civilian assassins script on the Armaholic forums.
This script will increase the tension while you and your teammates meet civilians not knowing their intensions.

    Quote wolfenswan :
    Urban combat against regular forces is fun, but what's even more fun is the tension of not knowing if those angry looking civilians are harmless or carrying heat.

    This script allows you to turn either specific civilians, all civilians in the mission and/or all civilians spawned by the ALICE module into hidden sleepers (with either a fixed or random chance of triggering).

    They will wait until either a set amount of units of a specific site OR a specific unit (a VIP for example) are in their trigger-area and will then engage the target after a short while.

    There is no way of telling if a civilian is dangerous or not from a distance as they are considered "civilian" in in-game terms until the moment they pull a gun (where the script adds them to a group of the opposing faction).

    • changed how the A3 civilians engage
    • updated the way skill works

Eggbeast released an updated version of his Cockpit Loadout Selection script on the BI forums.

    Quote eggbeast :
    Here's a little script I'm working on for Arma2 and 3 aircraft to have armoury loadouts manually selectable from the cockpit, while stationary in the friendly airbase.
    It is pretty simple and allows you to choose for a range of standard mission functions for every aircraft type.

    • a few fixes
    • F18/F14/Su33 added
