I thought I would start the new year off right by giving you all...THE FINGER! Happy 2020 Everybody!!! May this be an awesome ARMA year, and good year in general.
How it works: Vanilla ARMA has no finger gesture, but in the Tanoa APEX campaign there is a long animation where an AI slowly turns around and gives the finger then looks around some more. As a mission maker, its not very useful because its hard to time the gesture with some dialogue and position him properly, and control the direction he is facing. At mission start, I create an AI and play that animation and wait exactly 8.3 seconds then disable animation on the unit. Now his finger is deployed. This unit is hidden, and becomes a "stunt double" that you can use for any AI unit. Call my script, and the stunt double will be assigned the same face and loadout, and direction as the AI unit you want to make the gesture. The AI unit is teleported away, and the stunt double is teleported in and now you have movie magic! Great for cutscenes, hostile civilians, flipping off officers when they turn their back, etc... Have fun with it!

Only works on AI units. Does NOT work for player.
AI unit is invincible during the 2 seconds of doing the finger gesture (as its the stunt double you see, who has simulation disabled).
