* ArmA2 - Improved AI scripts

    For some months fabrizio_T is working on a script to improve the AI in ArmA2.
    Quote fabrizio_T :
    It's a infantry AI set of scripts, featuring a somewhat better AI behaviour. Here is a list of the planned features for this set of scripts:
      * better situational awareness: depending on evaluation of opposing force the AI group will decide whether to (1) hit the ground and observe threat, (2) assault, (3) engage carefully, (4) advance stealthy, (5) keep position or (6) tactically retreat;
      * AI group does not rush into enemy, unless it's outnumbering the opposition;
      * Better group cohesion: AI units try to cover each other and work as a group;
      * Groups communication: AI group leaders share informations with nearby friendly groups;
      * Groups cohordination: AI group leaders try to cohordinate action with other nearby groups;
      * Support: AI group issues calls for artillery strikes or CAS;
      * Logistics: AI group requests pickup / extraction;
      * Better formation handling: AI group chooses afitting formation depending on direction and size of the opposing force and/or environment;
      * Better unit speed and stance handling: speed and stance depend on enemy numbers, size and distance of opposing force;
      * Minor feature: AI group deploys smoke when falling back;
      * Minor feature: AI units leave depleted AT weapons on the ground;
      * Minor feature: Group command automatically switched if leader is heaviliy wounded or hurt to legs;
    Here is a video demonstrating AI ability to hit the ground and "collect information" on enemy before opening fire. Nothing scripted (in mission), AI group is given a simple MOVE waypoint 1 km away.

    Quote Old Bear :
    Build originally and release in a private ArmA version for my game team the renowned Clan ADO.
    The map is still small ... and can be played with middle/low end PC. 5500 m from Konec Cape to Avrora cape, 4500 m from Nikagda island to Esly Ostrov.

    This ArmA2 map is an Alpha state and has been released for tests and private use for my Clan ADO game team.
