High Command Transport

by
Hansen111


Description:
A very simple / lighweight AddOn that fixes current issues with performing transport in High Command Mode.

AddOn created mainly to correct high command transport tasks like (but not limited to):
- hc group will not board vehicles that has been assigned to other hc groups (even though cargo space is available)
- hc group will not board even empty vehicles in which the player has been in the driverseat
- Feedback tracker: http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=12934


Installation:
To install High Command Transport you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.


Included files:
HC_Transport.pbo


Usage:
- Go to high command control (Left CTRL + SPACE)
- Use Action (scroll-wheel) Called High Command Transport
- Select high command groups (F1 - F12)

Selecting 2 High Command Groups -> Scroll Wheel High Command Transport -> Load
will perform the "Transport Load" action.

1 Transport Load
Select the HC Groups (F1 to F12) to combine for transport. In the selected groups, 1 group must be in a vehicle, all other groups must be on foot. If you are in the vehicle to provide transport, only select groups on foot that are to mount the vehicle. If the group transport provider is in a helo, the helo will auto find a location to hover, and the groups on foot will mount. Make sure that the vehicle has capacity to transport the groups.

2 Transport Unload
Select 1 or more HC groups that are being transported (assigned as cargo) to dismount the vehicle they are in. If the transport vehicle is a flying helo it will find a location to unload troops while hovering very low, if a helo pad is close it will be used (standard arma). The troops will auto dismount.

3 Crew Enter
Select 1 HC group to mount and take control (driver and turrets) of a nearby vehicle. Closest vehicle will be considered first and so on, only vehicles that have no CONTROLLING crew is considered, only vehicles that can carry the whole group is considered. If the group have more men than the vehicle driverseat + turrets, the rest will mount as cargo.

4 Crew Exit
Select 1 or more HC groups that controls (driver + turrets) vehicles, selected groups will dismount their vehicle.

5 Engine On
Select 1 or more HC groups controlling a vehicle to turn engine on. Its safe to select all HC groups to perform a uniform spool up since the order will be auto ignored by groups not controlling vehicles.

6 Engine Off
Select 1 or more HC groups controlling a vehicle to turn engine off. If a selected HC group controls a flying helo, that helo will find a location to land and shut engine off. Its safe to select all HC groups to perform a uniform spool down since the order will be auto ignored by groups not controlling vehicles.

7 Helo Land/Hover
Select 1 or more HC groups controlling a flying helo that will find a location to hover very low for troops to mount / dismount. Note that troops will not auto mount / dismount, you still need to press 6-1 or 6-2 after the helo is hovering low.

8 Toggle SideChat
Toggle if the HC groups will use sidechat to inform you of performed mount / dismount actions, good feature if you are far away, eq. you want to know when a riffle squad have finished dismounting / mounting a helo so you can order the helo back.

Known issues:
Although it is checked WHEN ORDERED if a group can fit in a vehicle, ordering many groups at the same time into a vehicle that cannot hold all troops can cause unknown behavior, even desynch of groups.


Future plans:
- Release Single Player ShowCase
- Add multiplayer support


Notes:
If enough people uses and likes the addon i will update it, so give it a thumps up if you want updates.
