This Mod, was originally a private mod I made for myself but I have now decided to share it. I always loved the Idea of High Command, but playing it always felt lackluster.
As soon as Combat started the Ai Groups became unresponsive, being stuck in Combat Mode and often engaging enemies at will running all over the map. As Commander you never really knew what your units were doing and apart from giving move commands, the Commander couldn't really do much.
This Mod tries to fix these issues and add meaningful tools for the Commander.
Added Map Icons, showing Group Information
Added Tasks for Groups
AI changes increasing Group cohesion and responsiveness
Improved SITREP showing more Information like ammunition amount.
High Command Groups Communicating and sharing target Information
Remote Camera View for Group Leaders
Group reorganisation like adding and removing Groups from your Command.
Vehicle Speed Options
Units Resupply from ammo bearers (Vanilla factions only)
AT Soldiers Resupply from AT Assistants
Tasks are what I like to call orders other then MOVE you can give to your Groups.
Advance (Moving in AWARE Combat Mode)
Assault Position (Advancing on a SAD WP in Combat Pace)
Defend Position (AI takes cover and wont move from position)
Taking Cover in Place
Forming 360° Security
Fallback (Group stops fighting completely and moves to WP)
GetIn/GetOut Transport Vehicle
To install Platoon Leader: High Command Mod 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.
To Access the HC Menus you might need to assign Keys in the Control Menu.
Controls --> SHOW: Command: --> "Open Menu (Move)", etc.
(I assigned the Menus like [1,7,3,5,9,8,2,6,4,0] These are the Most ergonomic settings for me.)
You can then access them when HC Mode is active (Default: CTRL and SPACE)
In the Root Menu you can press CTRL and ALT for additional Options.
I don't recommend using other AI modification mods together with this
License / Disclaimer:
I'm not the most experienced Arma modder so you might encounter some bugs.
