I have been thinking about asking if there is a way for someone who has knowledge and desire to create a utility, somehow that will allow for pre operational load out selections. instead of being stuck with forced loadouts and allow for players in single and MP COOP to select a firearm, scope or holographic scope or such.

sometimes I like to try out different concepts of soldiers aside from what is setup in a mission. suppose I start with a M4 but being alone, start out with a .338 lupua or .308 M40 (Remington 700) which has a shorter action, or even the M24 Army sniper bolt action based upon the longer action Remington 700 so I can use .300 magnum rounds or .300 rounds.

just to mix things up. is this even feasible?

thanks,
Chris

I'm not sure to understand every details you want, but you can save your preferred loadouts in Arsenal.
As far as you keep the addon corresponding to your loadouts, you can retrieve them in Arsenal.
If you discard a mod, the weapons or other equipment from this mod are grayed but not lost.

If you're scripting a mission, you can add the arsenal feature very simply on a crate or even player(s).
What you can't do unless writing a mod, is to mix all magazines you want. Because the weapons are modded with their mags or compatible mags, then ammos.

PLEASE CONTACT ME ON BI FORUMS FOR ANY SCRIPT / MOD QUESTION. TKS

I was thinking in terms of like how Ghost Recon worked. each player selected what class they wanted to be: sniper, machine-gunner, grenadier, Explosives etc.

perhaps a utility that creates a front end before the mission starts and allows for the gamer or team to select a weapon available, scope, Eotech sight, trijicon etc. then how many mags and such.

Just an idea.

thanks though.

One of these addons might help you:

Personal Arsenal

VAA - Virtual Arsenal Anywhere

Sometimes I like to think as I started the whole "earplugs" thing.

W0lle: The only advice I can give you is: Do not try to understand BI. You will not succeed and it only makes your brain go boom. I would even go so far and say that not even they understand their own actions :-D.
