Tracking tasks and briefing in a mission, especially a multiplayer mission with the potential of team switching and join-in-progress, is a tedious task if done manually. Arma 3 added modules for this, but they have their limitations (like, it's not really possible to re-arrange entries, you have to add them in a certain order).
FHQ TaskTracker was a solution I came up with for this. It started out as a script for Arma 2 and was adapted to Arma 3 later, first as a standalone script, and now finally as a function library
Installation / Usage:
To install the FHQ TaskTracker you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
For usage instructions and information of how to use the FHQ TaskTracker please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.
Credits & Thanks:
FHQ TaskTracker was written by Varanon. I can be reached as Varanon on the BI forum and via email.
I want to thank all people who used FHQ TaskTracker in the past and gave me valuable feedback on how to improve the script. Thanks also go out to Alwarren for the ArmaDev Eclipse plugin, which I don't want to miss anymore when developing missions for Arma.
Thanks to Comrades in Arms for being the best multiplayer community I ever had the pleasure of playing with.
Finally, thanks to Bohemia Interactive for creating Arma. I hope we will still see many years of Arma development, Arma 3 and beyond. I know DayZ sold better, but I sincerely hope you won't let Arma die because of the success of that title. Thanks for countless hours of tactical fun in a game that has no equal.
You are free to use this code in your own missions. I only ask that you do not modify the
script without asking for permission first, and that you do not distribute modified versions of
it. Getting a mention in the credits is appreciated, but not a requirement.
