ACC Artillery Shell Tracker

by

Description:
I've made simple script to help artilleryman out there with ACE3 MK6 mortar module and ruPal's Advanced Artillery.
This script will:
  • Track 2D location of fired shells on map in realtime as marker
  • Show Time Of Flight (TOF) in seconds of fired artillery shell as said marker text
  • Show it's current altitude in meters (ATL) as said marker text
  • Mark shell peak point on map as marker
  • Mark shell hit location on map as marker
  • Display 2D (map) distance to that location in meters as systemchat message
  • Display 3D (three dimensional) distance to that location as systemchat message
  • Display gun height, impact height and difference in altitude between those two in meters as systemchat message
Purpose of whole script is for training and also to help with learning artillery rangetables.


Installation / Usage:
Place empty artillery and player on map, also place ACE Misc items box to get rangetables or use Zeus module to equip yourself with one
Add this to artillery init line:
this addEventHandler ["Fired", {_this execVM "trackShell.sqf";}];
Adjust weather, ACE3 modules etc.
Save your mission
Go to C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Arma 3 (or Arma 3 Other profiles \ profile name)\missions and find your mission there
Place my sqf script there next to mission.sqm
Run your mission and get into said static
You can find shooting guide on ACE3 wiki there (also applies to ruPal's Advanced Artillery tables)
Have fun shooting
