MKY Sandstorm script


This script adds a Sandstorm.

Installation / Usage:
Sample Mission on Shapur_BAF using my sand EFX script.

Dependencies - none, although the sample mission requires All in Arma Terrain Pack (AiA TP) or Community Upgrade Project - Terrains Complete addons

For usage instructions and information of how to use the MKY Sandstorm script please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.

In init.sqf, on your condition of whether to use the sand EFX or not, define a global variable with parameters for the sand and snow EFX (see respective client scripts for syntax)

MKY_arSandEFX = [0,"",true,false,true,true,true,1];
MKY_arSnowEFX = [[0.23,0.047,15],0.8,true];

then, execute this script, like this:
nul = [] execVM "MKY\MKY_Sand_Snow_Init.sqf";
dedicated servers do not need MKY_arSandEFX/MKY_arSnowEFX arrays
do NOT place in the initServer or initPlayerLocal files please
here is a working example:
if (someVariable != 4) then {
		// define the global sand and snow parameter arrays
		MKY_arSandEFX = [0,"",true,false,true,true,true,1];
		MKY_arSnowEFX = [[0.23,0.047,15],0.8,true];
		// init the EFX scripts
		nul = [] execVM "MKY\MKY_Sand_Snow_Init.sqf";

Still a WIP at this point, but here are some videos of what I am working on for desert maps. I have learned a lot since I started on the snow maps. The more I learn, the more tricks I "think" I am finding to keeping the effect good while reducing resource footprint. You just have to be creative.. and read a bunch and experiment even more.. basically you don't play the game at all, you just code for it... hmm.
