BAS_f Russian

BAS f is a framework: an MP mission folder containing a library of scripts, functions and template files, plus a manual. The framework is designed to provide the mission designer, after minimal additional configuration, with a selection of pre-tested features and functionality intended to improve the overall quality and re-playability of his/her mission.

Since BAS f is a framework, and not a template, the design of the actual mission is completely open; the framework is intended only to save time for the designer by providing components such as weather selections that work with join-in-progress (JIP), or pre-configured gear selections for re-equipping soldiers during the mission briefing. For many components care has also been taken to localise messages and texts (where used) into several languages (German, Czech, Polish, Russian, Spanish and French).

Importantly, all components of the framework are fully explained in the manual, feature extensive commenting within script files, and each can be disabled if desired. The manual is designed to guide the mission designer through the full configuration process, as well as provide instructions for optional components.

BAS f is aimed at the new ArmA mission designer, although it is not intended for complete beginners. To use BAS f the mission designer should have a basic understanding of:

How to open the MP mission editor
How to place and edit units, triggers, waypoints and markers in the editor
The ArmA scripting syntax (for .sqf files)
The roles of key files: description.ext and init.sqf
The role of script files (.sqf files)
If a mission designer has already created his/her first few missions, everything in BAS f should be relatively straightforward. In addition, mission designers with intermediate experience may also find BAS f useful as a time-saver, or as the basis for their own personal base framework(s).

BAS, and its partners, plans to continually evolve this framework, and will also explore the creation of specialised versions catering for specific mission types.

    Core Components: The following mini-guides, core components and pre-configured mission settings are included in this version of the BAS f framework:
      - Select Your Island:
        * Sahrani
        * Sahrani (ShackTac mission template)
        * Rahmadi
        * United Sahrani
        * Porto
        * Sakakah Al Jawf
        * Malden (Cold War Re-armed Mod)
        * Winter Kolgujev (Cold War Re-armed Mod)
      - Naming Your Mission
      - Load Screen Text
      - Respawn Settings

      - Conditions Selector
      - Gear Snippets (inc. v1.05 weapons)

    Some of these components require minor amounts of configuration, however the majority are ready for use without any further editing. This manual will step the mission designer through all components, and indicate any edits necessary for final configuration (including how to disable a specific component).

    Optional Components:
    The following mini-guides and optional components are intended to provide your mission with extra features such as automatic team-killer punishment, or restricted vehicle crews.
