Push And Kill [ALPHA]

Jon Hillenbrand (Feint)

Frustrated that beaching a boat would make it unusable, I decided to start pushing them around. Then I started pushing around cars. Then quads. Then containers. Then stacks of bricks... you get the idea.

This addon adds the ability for players to push vehicles and objects in the direction that they are looking.
There are two versions: Module version and a Script version. See below for installation.

In version 2.0, I add the ability to push or kill people if you are close enough to them. You can turn these features on and off. See below.

Ability to push people.
Ability to kill people.
Ability to turn these features off (for people).

Note: This version completely replaces version 1.0. If you have that installed, please delete it before installing version 2.0!

Required game:
Arma3: Alpha (dev)
Tested with Arma 3: Alpha version 0.53.103696

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/@your_mod_folder_name

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.

And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

Included files:

1) Go into Editor
2) Add Push module
3) Add player
4) Add vehicle
5) Preview Mission
6) Go into Options > Controls > Keyboard > Custom Controls
7) Set a key for "Use Custom 11" (TIP: I set mine to Caps Lock)
8) Use that key to push the vehicle (once per second)

Script installation:
See included mission for details!

To turn off pushing of people:
If using Module version, open the module and in the "init" line add the following:
player setVariable ["cantPushPeople",1,true];

note: You will still be able to kill people if you only turn off pushing.

To turn off killing or pushing of people:
If using Module Version, open the module and in the "init" line add the following:
player setVariable ["cantKillPeople",1,true];

note: You will still be able to push people if you only turn off killing.

Known issues:
1) If you stand too close to an object you are moving, it will damage you (it hits you).
2) Only the following classes can be pushed: AllVehicles, Thing, Object. Some objects don't fall within these categories.
3) On soft surfaces like sand, some objects can be thrown quite far (like trucks)
4) Helicopters can't be pushed - they just seem to take damage

The Arma2 community is full of very helpful people and without them, this addon would not have been possible. On this particular project, knowledge I gained while working on my Underwater Diving Module and Aerial Refueling Scripts really helped. Please see those readMe files for specific people who helped me along the way.
