-Support: 24 different support options (ranked) - some working some not depending on alpha development (can be changed in parameters)
--marker smoke, motorbikes, boats, ammo crates, minefields, flares, etc all work
--all statics are mortars for now

Helicopter hitch system (with added eventhandling to stop catastrophic damage of vehicles in transit)
Work in progress:
- engineer and medic should score points for healing/fixing
- city markers not going to current target city for new JIP (you can workaround this with radio 0-0-2)
- R3F logistics script failing after a time (tow vehicles, load in and move items like ammo boxes, obstacles, mortars)
- enemy vehicles spawning in quantity in towns (e.g. should be 15 in first city)
- 3 types of enemy base raiders (under trial) - sea/air/land borne raiders (parameter).
- disabled heli reinforcements for now as they just will not land! and they have no parachutes...
- cleaning up "zombies" at spawn and crap dropped from ammo crates
- separating out spawn from crates to enable better cleanup without losing gear menu functionality
- killing officer - penalty fails? even rewards sometimes
- time of day synching fails?
- move spawn boats off of shelf on beach
- airbase raid to take down special enemy command tower (almost complete)
Some observations for community mission scripters:
1. if you removeallweapons beware that the grenade muzzle will also get nulled, meaning the player will be unable to throw grenades - am working on a fix for this today.
2. there is an object caller for
but not handgun unit
3. NVG is now an item whereas binoculars remain a weapon...
4. A3a has ammo crates with max size of 40 weapons/100 mags or 30 weapons/250 mags - (albeit temporarily) gone are days of vehicleboxes containing 200+ weapons!
5. backpack returns a string but unitbackpack returns an object, there is not a similar function for uniform, vest, headgear and goggles.
6. starting players with grenades/satchels is a big NoNo - they just attack each other at spawn or press G on the ammo crates (massive mistake BIS!) which now throws a grenade instead of doing the gear option.
