The Super Soldier Mode

by
2fast


Description:
This mod is not packed into PBO nor signed. There are 2 reasons. Firstly this is sole designed for SP experience. All code are not optimized for multiplayer. Secondly, as the development is ongoing, I am able to edit scripts on the fly without even exiting the game.

This mod was developed for Arma 2 as a custom mission, then expanded as addon for Arma 3. I have worked on this project on and off for probably 2 years.

Motivation:
I have been playing Arma since the OFP days and I was never really good at it, probably due to lack of commitment and multiplayer experience. I really liked the realistic aspect of Arma, compare to other mainstream games like COD and BF. But at the same time, sometimes the realism leaves me frustrated. Things like fatigue, injury. Most of you probably think that the realism is part of the fun, but for me, I am just looking for a quick 1 hour fun mission most of the times without feeling the need to restart every time I am shot in the leg and unable to run and hence failing the mission. Therefore, I decided to get into scripting to enable certain cheats for myself that makes the game easier for me (arcade-ish you may argue), yet retain other aspects of Arma that I really enjoy.


Installation:
Important:
Do not rename the folder otherwise it wont work!
Since it is not packed in anyway, the folder names has to be strictly the same as they are hardcoded in the scripts.

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.


Included files:
YQ_MOD.pbo


Usage:
The GUI for this addon is only optimized for 1080P resolution and Small GUI size. All other configurations are not optimized. This is because this mod is designed for personal usage initially and not intended for release. There is currently no plan to optimize for other GUI config yet as my dialog skill is not good enough. You can however tweak it as you wish if you have the knowledge. Do share your modification with others if you get it working. =)

To enable Super Soldier Mod (YQ_MOD), press ESC during any single player mode or editor mode, there should be a button called YQ_MOD just above the pause menu. Clicking on the button will enable the mod for you. If the button is not showing up, check out reply #17 by asuseroako. Let me know if it is still not working.

Hotkey Menus/functions:
INFORMATION NOT COMPLETE DUE TO SIMPLY TOO MANY FUNCTIONALITIES. I WILL UPDATE WHEN I FIND MORE TIME

There are many other functions that are not documented here, because this mod has accumulated too many things since the start. I will do what I can but you can just play around with all menus and buttons. I am sure you can figure it out.

The followings are the main functions of this mod. They are triggered via hotkey combinations. By WIN, it refers to WIN LEFT key on your keyboard. All number keys are referring to the main keyboard number and not Number Pad keys.

Super Soldier Main Menu (WIN + 1)
• Range Finder (only in scope view. Shows target distance, cursor distance, target classname, wind direction left/right -/+)
• Auto regen health (COD style)
• Fatigue off (it is a must if you want to carry 5 rifles in the backpack and Run'n Gun =P)
• Kill Ticker
• HUD
• Mini Map
• Supply air drop, vehicle air drop
• Heli insertion (click on maps to give waypoints, use Shift+Click to end. The first point is pickup location and last point is unload position. Flight plan can be updated in flight. Want a extraction heli waiting for you right after an assassination? No problem!)
• Stealth indicator (use marker to show the area where enemy THINKS you are located, fun to be a stealthy sniper)
• Scan for enemy intel (something likes unit tracker, updated every few mins. Also includes a 100M radius proximity sensor that tracks all units at real time. -->> I suck at CQB)
• Mark enemy position with the intel from your squad (Orange marker shows the position of enemy that are spotted by your squad)
• Climb roof (perfect for urban snipers. I wrote a custom script to determine the actual height of a building in order to place unit on top of it, so far works great!)
• Accelerate/skip time
• UAV for scanning surroundings for enemy (spawn a UAV for scouting purposes)
• Savegame (will overwrite auto savegame in missions)

Weapon Mod Menu (WIN + 2)
• directly attach any attachment without need to carry any (support ASDG Rail attachment. Spent couple of hours learning from VAS to read all compatible ASDG items, today ASDG updated with a built in function....Anyway Thanks VAS!)
• Switch main weapon with ones in backpack
• Force pack a weapon (snipers,long rifles etc) into backpack
• Repack magazines
• Preview of attachment pictures

Target Menu (WIN + 3)
• Repair target (unit or vehicles, but cannot revive)
• Flip vehicles

Squad Menu (WIN + 4)
• Call in reinforcement (4 man squad)
• Squad movement (issue waypoints individually or as a small group)
• Switch Leader
• Squad self heal
• Dismiss member
• Squad member list support multiple selection. If you dont select any, it is considered as selecting all

Focus (Shift Left when in scope view)
• Slows down time for you to aim properly at ironsight/scope view.
• Allows easier weapon sway management
• Good for snipers or in 1 vs Many situations

Toggle Weapon Sights (Tab)
• Toggles between the last 2 optics you have used on your weapon
• Works on primary weapons only
• Quick change of optics saves you the trouble of going into inventory and drag attachment to the correct slot. Good for situation where you have to switch from a long range scope to CQB sights

Set Weapon (WIN + Space)
• Simulate the effect of bipod (less recoil), but has no restriction at all, means you can be in any posture anywhere
• However, you are limited to about 60 degrees angle and 1 meter of movement before having to set weapon again

Quick Switch Weapon (Shift + 1/Shift + 2) ---- WIP, potentially buggy
• Allows to quickly swap weapons on your hand with the next one in your backpack
• Scripts remembers the attachments you have used on the weapon so when you swap it back, the attachment will stay
• Could be used in CQB where you need to switch from Sniper rifle to Sub Machine Guns

Other Functions:
HUD
• Gives you overall information on the map, including mini map, health, kill ticker, enemy in range, enemy detection etc
• Use WIN + Up/WIN + Down to zoom in and out on mini map

Weapon Selection Menu
• This menu will be available as an action on player within the first minute upon activating this mod. This allows the possibility of fully customize your initial loadout before commencing your mission. A mission can often feel drastically different when playing with different kind of weapons
• A quick way to load up your unit to how you want, without needing to dig through ammo box
• Preset available. Can be configured in data\weapon\preset\

Outfit Selection Menu
• Same as weapon menu, this is available as an action within the first minute upon activation. Allows you to customize your outfit. Do checkout the custom vest and backpack I made for almost unlimited storage
• Select your outfit with a external camera so that you know how you look like

Config Modifications
• Minimize all weapon sway
• Custom GM6 with straight (unrealistic) ballistics and AT like power. (I know, i am lazy to switch to AT/AA weapons), typically take 1 shot to the engine to take out a unarmored vehicle, and less than 10 for a armored vehicle. High Explosive round also available for EXPLOSIONS. Perfect for shooting out helicopters from the sky.
• Custom EBR with straight ballistics and huge calibre that pierce through anything. Perfect for sniping out drivers and gunners inside a armored vehicle. Only 3 round per magazine to limit its usage (i have some conscience after all)
• Custom vest and backpack with HUGE volume. Store launchers rifles ammo and everything!
• Custom laser designator with zoom x1-x60 and TWS. Allows for easy scanning of surroundings with large FOV

Kill Trigger
• If you kill any AI, a notification will pop up like BF style
• Headshot message will be indicated if you made a headshot

Libraries:
Probably the proudest part of this mod. I have tried to organized all the frequently used functions into data\fnc folder for you, so that you can simply call these functions within this mod as long as it is initialized. Just to highlight a few below
• Dynamically read config entries for weapons, units, vehicless and pretty much everything you need in addon or missions
• Spawning pretty much anything you want with a simple statement.
• Generate positions base on parameters. Generate waypoints. Etc.

There are many other scripts that I put in other folders under data\. Not as frequently used, hence not in the data\ fnc libraries, but you might find it useful.

I think the library is good for dynamically creating missions as well. I have made a personal dynamic mission without actually placing anything on the editor but running all from scripts. But this is for later.


Known issues:
- Might have some issues during save/load for some missions, so best not to die, which is the purpose of this mod.
- Some functions are WIP so might be broken as expected.
- Does not show up on some people's UI at Esc Menu. My setting is set at 1080p, Wide 16:9 ratio and small interface size. Still investigating.
- If the button does not show up, try enable it via other script in editor, try this:
nul = [] execVM "\@YQ_MOD\data\scriptInit.sqf";
- Alternative tweaks to Activation button
Go to data\dialog\superSoldier, change the definition of position (x and y) below. Maybe it is out of range of your display area.
class RscDisplayInterrupt: RscStandardDisplay {
class Controls {
class b_YQ_MOD: RscButton
{
idc = -1;
text = "YQ_MOD";
action = "[] execVM '@YQ_MOD\data\scriptInit.sqf';";
x = -27 * GUI_GRID_W + GUI_GRID_X;	//38
y = 20 * GUI_GRID_H + GUI_GRID_Y; //28.5
w = 5.5 * GUI_GRID_W;
h = 1.5 * GUI_GRID_H;
};
};
};


Notes:
I will need help from people to setup a user config to allow user to define their own hotkey. Also people who are experienced in making the UI compatible with different resolution and UI size.
Tester also needed if you want to get the latest version and test out for bugs for me.


Credits & Thanks:
I have to thank pretty much all mod/script makers out there. All my scripting knowledge come from you guys. So please forgive me for not making a specific list. If you see your code being used in my mod, please don’t be offended, you just helped me solve a problem that puzzled me for days or even weeks.

Of course special mention goes to BIS for such a wonderful game with limitless possibilities.
