Hostage rescue scriptby
Creating hostage rescue mission can be realy frustrating. Especialy the "escort hostage to" part, and i think "join group" is not the best idea. Also ACE3 prisoner feature is not what i want for hostage rescue. So i wrote simple script that i would like to share.
-Auto switch animation of unit for sitting with hand behind back
-Released hostage will follow player without join to group
-Hostage will take player stance (prone, crouch, stand)
-Player can control hostage by actions under scroll menu:
--Order get in (when hostage is following you and you point at any vehicle)
--Order get out (when hostage is inside vehicle)
-MP compatible host & dedicated
Installation / Usage:
For usage instructions and information of how to use the Hostage rescue script please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.
0: OBJECT - unit that have to be a hostage
1 (optional): STRING - hostage "name"
In unit init field:
0 = [this,"Hostage 1"] execVM "sush_pow_script.sqf";
On dedicated servers hostage stance is not always adjusted (BIS fault, see issue tracker http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=17699 ). Hostage not always go to stance UP from MIDDLE, and from DOWN to MIDDLE. I will work on workaround.
-added dedicated compatbility
