Jurassic Arma - Raptor Pack

McRuppert and BadBenson

This addon adds a fully functional velociraptor to arma 3. it can be controlled by both the player and a custom made AI routine.
There is a male and a female version of the raptor and several texture variants for each of them.

the focus for this release was to create a stable platform to develope more creatures on. so the raptor is basically the prototype for other species that might be added later.
the goal was mostly getting one creature fully fleshed out and as stable as possible. since arma is not really designed with anything other than humans in mind, it was necessary to deactivate certain features like inventory access as much as we could.

the biggest issue we faced was making the AI move wirth determination.

this addon adds a fully functional velociraptor to arma 3. it can be controlled by both the player and a custom made AI routine.
there is a male and a female version of the raptor and several texture variants for each of them:
  • attacks:
      the raptors have two types of attacks.
      the standard claw/bite attack: this will do a certain amount of damage on each strike.
      and the jump attack: this will, if aimed successfully, make the raptor pin down its victim and maul him to death unless the raptor gets killed in the process.
  • jumping:
      in addition to that the raptors are able to jump. the jump will take into account how fast you are moving when it's triggered and the direction you are looking at (both horizontal and vertical).
  • screaming:
      the player raptor has the ability to scream when pressing the "G" button. This feature comes with three randomly picked animation + sounds.
      Perfect to scare other players in multiplayer.
      Also the Ai will scream when detecting enemys
      and when placed in group, the raptor will call his teammates for supporting.
  • feeding:
      as a raptor you can feed on your prey to gain back health.
      to do that use the same key as screaming while standing over a dead body.
  • HUD:
      when the raptors are controlled by a player they have a simple HUD that shows the most important info.
      the current attack (left), the amount of health the raptor has (right) and the amount of fatigue the raptor is currently suffering from.
      fatigue, as for humans, has to be managed for the raptor too. every attack, jump and sprint will cost stamina.
  • AI:
      the raptor AI routine consists of a basic detection system, an attack routine and an idle mode. detection is based on distance, line of sight and field of view.
      Same as done with basic arma AI.
