SPON Map
by
Spooner


Description:
Map that allows players to make freehand drawings, place markers in a more intuitive way and several more innovations. The choice of exactly who to send this information to is greatly extended from the "vanilla" ArmA options (i.e. considerably more control than just direct/vehicle/group/side/global channels).

This SPON component requires the SPON Core library component. Both this component and SPON Core are available in two versions:
    • Addon - May be loaded on any client and requires the Extended Eventhandlers (XEH) addon. The addon being on the server won't have any effect (no scripts will run there).
    • Mission-script - Does not require any addons to be installed on client or server.
Both versions require at least ArmA 1.14.

Features list


Installation:
Addon version
    1. Install the XEH (Extended eventhandlers) addon by Solus and Killswitch.
    2. Install the SPON Core addon.
    3. Copy the Addon Version/@SPON_Map directory into your ArmA directory.
    4. Add
    -mod=@XEH;@SPON_Core;@SPON_Map
    to your ArmA shortcut target.
    5. If you want to force the SPON Map addon to be loaded in order to play in your mission, just add a "SPON Map: Require" gamelogic with the editor.
Mission-script version
    1. Ensure that you have the latest version of SPON Core installed in your mission (see the README.txt within that package for full installation instructions).
    2. Copy the Scripts\SPON directory into your mission folder.
    3. Add the following lines to your mission's stringtable.csv file (only #include the file from Core once, regardless of how many SPON components are used):
    LANGUAGE, "English" 
          #include "SPON\Core\stringtable.csv" 
          #include "SPON\Map\stringtable.csv"

    4. Add the following two lines to your mission's description.ext file (Make sure that the #include for the SPON Core file comes before the include files for any other SPON components, such as SPON Map):
    1 #include "SPON\Core\ui\core.hpp"
    2 #include "SPON\Map\ui\map.hpp"

    5. In your init.sqf file (or init.sqs), include the following line:

    1 [] call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "SPON\Map\initMap.sqf";

    6. If in doubt, check how it is done in the demo mission and copy that.

    #include "SPON\Core\stringtable.csv"
    #include "SPON\Map\stringtable.csv"

    Add the following two lines to your mission's "description.ext" file (Make sure that the #include for the SPON Core file comes before the include files for any other SPON components, such as SPON Map):
    #include "SPON\Core\ui\core.hpp"
    #include "SPON\Map\ui\map.hpp"
    In your init.sqf file (or init.sqs), include the following line:
    [] call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "SPON\Map\initMap.sqf";
    If in doubt, check how it is done in the demo mission and copy that.
