Hello,I'm quite new to the editor,but I have some experience under my belt,and I was wondering how I could change the route of a convoy when the lead vehicle blows up from an I.E.D,the route I want to use goes offroad,while the lead vehicle and convoy primarily starts driving across a road.

Is there any Clear,written instructions on how to do this,or does anyone know how? would be very grateful.

Thanks.

[Bonus question] would an ambush work if an OPFOR squad's first waypoint set them to stealth and hold fire,and when BLUFOR passes a certain point they go into combat and seek and destroy? Thanks again.

When you want the convoy to go off the road try changing there behavior on the waypoint to Stealth. They seem to be more willing to drive off road. Also, try giving the vehicle multiple waypoints offroad instead of just one. Likewise, they seem to follow the path. As far as the ambush goes, you would want to give the OPFOR a waypoint where you want them to wait for the ambush. Make that waypoint stealth and hold fire. Then create a trigger and set the activation as BLUFOR. Then synchronize the trigger to the OPFOR stealth and hold fire waypoint. Place the trigger where you would like the BLUFOR to be ambushed. Next you can give the OPFORs next waypoint as combat, seek and destroy to where ever you would like them to go/attack. OPFOR will hold at there stealth waypoint until the trigger is set off by BLUFOR, then they will continue on with the seek and destroy waypoint. Hope this helps.
Not sure if you have seen this in the forums. Tons of info about editing. http://www.armaholic.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=6751
