Head marker

by
benw


Description:
Adding a little immersion to the game and make it more new player friendly.
The head marker is inspired by a MMORPG called WOW.
The head marker will automatically disappeared if you are getting far away.
Currently the detecting range is 13 meters.


Installation / Usage:
Create a mission on any map.
In the editor add a player unit and then add more units and give them names. Place those units in anywhere you like.
Please place the uploaded Head_Marker.sqf into the mission folder.
In the init.sqf, add this line in below: (if you do not have init.sqf in the mission folder, just create 1 by yourself):
call compile preprocessFile "Mission_Giver.sqf";
After that, in the Head_Marker.sqf file, please find line 3, and add the name to the array:
Mission_Givers=[yourUnitName0,yourUnitName1,yourUnitName2];


Known issues:
If you place multiple mission givers too close together, it will cause strange flickering on Icon3d, that's because I used sleep command, If you don't want any flickering, just remove the sleep command.
