OCAP - Operation Capture And Playback


OCAP is a game-changing tool that allows the recording and playback of operations on an interactive (web-based) map.
Reveal where the enemy were located, discover how each group carried out their assaults, and find out who engaged who, when, and what with.
Use it simply for fun or as a training tool to see how well your group performs on ops.

Interactive web-based playback. All you need is a browser.
Captures positions of all units and vehicles throughout an operation.
Captures events such as shots fired, kills, and hits.
Event log displays events as they happened in realtime.
Clicking on a unit lets you follow them.
Server based capture - no mods required for clients.

To install the OCAP - Operation Capture And Playback 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.

Included files:

Running OCAP
Capture automatically begins when server becomes populated (see userconfig for settings).

To end and export capture data, call the following (server-side):
[] call ocap_fnc_exportData;

Tip: You can use the above function in a trigger.
e.g. Create a trigger that activates once all objectives complete. Then on activiation:
if (isServer) then {
    [] call ocap_fnc_exportData;

"end1" call BIS_fnc_endMission; // Ends mission for everyone


Known issues:
- Web client was created using Chrome, other browsers (e.g. Firefox) are known to have some compatibility issues.
- When using ACE with insta-death off, kill/hit events report victim as the killer.

Credits & Thanks:
- 3 Commando Brigade for testing and moral-boosting.
- Leaflet - an awesome JS interactive map library.
