blckeagls' AI Mission - Version 2.0.2 Release (1/2/2015)

Recommended Posts

I have compiled some code from multiple authors and edited them.  Most of this being from Arma 2, since I have been running this script for over a year, I don't remember the authors.

 

Thanks to GhostRider for taking this and improving it.  You can see his improvements on his GitHub: https://github.com/G...v-2.0.2-updated

 

 

Current Version Number: 2.0.2

 

AI Features:
4 AI Missions (Each Different Color)

Each mission individually configurable
New Improved AI setOwner to enable JIP and new spawn damage
4 Crates at each mission (You can edit each one individually)

Variable amount of AI at each location, you can choose the range. (Default 5-15)

 

 

If anyone has any other cool ideas they would like me to make..  Personal Message me...  I'll work on them and post them on forum when completed if I like them...

 

NOTE: DO NOT USE CUSTOM @MOD FOLDERS, WILL PREVENT SERVER FROM SHOWING ON LAUNCHERS(Like A3LAUNCHER)

 

Instructions:

1. Download the attached files.

2. Add custom_server.pbo in your @EpochHive/Addons/ folder.

3. In your Mission Folder or PBO , if you have an init.sqf go to step 5.

4. Create a file called "init.sqf" in your mission folder or PBO (init.sqf provided in .zip)

5. Add the following Lines:

//If server execute this script
if (isServer) then {
	execVM "\q\addons\custom_server\init.sqf";
//If anything but server execute this script
} else {
	[] spawn {
		//This is to spawn the markers when players enter after server has started
		[] execVM "debug\addmarkers.sqf";
		[] execVM "debug\addmarkers2.sqf";
		[] execVM "debug\addmarkers75.sqf";
		[] execVM "debug\addmarkers752.sqf";
		//Event handler to show messages to players // this can be used for other scripts to send messages to players -- see AIM.sqf
		"blck_Message" addPublicVariableEventHandler {titleText[format["%1",_this select 1],"PLAIN DOWN",1];};
	};
}; 

6. Unzip the mission.zip file and add the debug folder into your mission folder or PBO. (init.sqf is provided only needed if step 6 was not completed)

 

You are complete!  Enjoy!
 

 

ATTACHED IN THE ZIP ARE THE BE FILTERS THAT I AM USING..  IF THEY DON'T WORK FOR YOU, NOT SURE WHY.  Due to too many people having different BE Filters issues, I will not provide BE Filter Support.  Use mine if you have issues (make a backup of your old ones in case of further issues)

 

 

AI Damaging players was configured by the following code added to the end of the AI.sqf and AI1.sqf files.

//Prevents players from having AI God Mode
while {true} do {
	_players = [];
	_nearEntities = count (_ai1 nearEntities [["MAN"],1000]);
	//diag_log format["_nearEntities: %1",_nearEntities];  //Used for testing
	{
		if (isPlayer _x) then {
		 _players = _players + [_x];
		};
	} foreach (_ai1 nearEntities [["MAN"],1000]);
	//diag_log format["Nearplayers: %1",_players]; //Used for testing
	if ((count _players) > 0) then {
		_owner = _players call BIS_fnc_selectRandom;
		_ai1 setOwner (owner _owner);
	};
	//diag_log format["_ai1 %2 Owner: %1",owner _ai1, _ai1]; //Used for testing
	waitUntil{_nearEntities != count (_ai1 nearEntities [["MAN"],1000])};
};

AI Cleanup was completed by adding the following:

_ai1 spawn {
	waitUntil{!alive _this};
	_this setOwner 1;
	sleep blck_aiCleanUpTimer;
	deleteVehicle _this;
};
  • FILES CAN BE EDITTED. to edit the server files, you need to unpack the custom_server.pbo with PBOMANAGER...  then once your done editting repack the PBO.
  • To edit I would suggest using Notepad++ and the SQF Addon from Armaholics
  • The PBOManager can be downloaded from Armaholics as well

Did you use the newest PBO?

or use my code in another script?

make sure the variables are listed in the private ["_var1","_var2"] etc...

Can someone plz help me? I`m new to Arma3 Servers. Where in scripts.txt i have to put this?

 

 

thx

You should be able to add it to the bottom of your scripts.txt

I believe it should be:  7 !="mpmissions\__CUR_MP.Altis\init.sqf"

For some reason I dont get kicks for this and I didnt update BE filters

Is this configured for the Altis Map only?

It is...  To fix it for Chernarus or other maps change this in the SM1 of the Major and Minor missions

_coords = [[6322,7801,0],300,12000,30,0,10,0] call BIS_fnc_findSafePos;

to:

            Center Pos       Range
_coords = [[6322,7801,0],300,12000,30,0,10,0] call BIS_fnc_findSafePos;

For Chernarus this should work:
_coords = [[6322,7801,0],300,5000,30,0,10,0] call BIS_fnc_findSafePos;

In ver 1.2+ i added support to define these in the server init.sqf file..

Also, calling "execVM "\x\addons\a3_ai_missions\AIMission\AIM.sqf";" is super annoying so I removed it.  So far so good though, rather enjoying.

There will be no acknowledgments of AI missions spawn being completed or spawned if you do that...

Hi blckeagls,

 

thanks for the mission system, it's working good; however I have a little issue: when I complete a mission the marker isn't cleared up...

Any fix I can apply?

 

Thanks!

 

- Michel

Do you have the Debug folder in your mission files?

I'll put the cleanup in script and re-upload files.. Wait for an update in the first post...
