TFD Melder / Pager


This mod provides a simple FME/Pager (Funkmeldeempfänger)
with a corresponding Control Center to dispatch Units.
Usefull for example on Life Servers or some Emergency Service Missions.
Its based on a German 6 Status model, which is used for EMS and in Fire Departments
The FME/Pager is accessable via the ACE3 Menu if you carry one with you.
The Control Center needs to be assigned to an Object (Take a look further down)

In my model I broke it down to 3 statuses:

Status 1 signals a free unit, ready to get dispatched (German Model 1 and 2)

Status 2 is for Units which got dispatched and are now approching a site or
are already on site (German Model 3 / 4)

Status 3 indicates a currently unavailable unit to the Dispatcher to who you
should not asign a new task to (German Model 6)

CBA3 and ACE3 are needed Extensions

To install TFD Melder / Pager 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 TFD Melder / Pager please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.

To asign a Comand Center to an Object paste the following in the Init of it:

//Select a number between 1 and 3, based on the Pager ID
To dispatch Units via Script use this:
call TFD_Melder_fnc_getUnits; //To refresh the list of Units with Pagers
["Description", "Location", 0, "1"] call TFD_Melder_fnc_dispatch;
//Params: [Description, Location, User Index, Pager ID]
//Index of User can be found in TFD_Melder_ownerPager1, 2 and 3 while runtime
Class Names:
"tfd_pager1", "tfd_pager2", "tfd_pager3"

This is my first published mod so I would love to get a ton of feedback from you guys.
English is not my native language, thats why I would be glad to receive some corrections
about misspelling and other stuff.
