View Full Version : question about the guard towers
Sep 14 2009, 05:33
is it possible in the editor to have a unit start off in the guard tower instead of commanding them in game?

Yep. What you need to do it use the this setPos [(getPos this select 0),(getPos this select 1),10];. This will allow you to place a unit where the tower is and then you enter a value where the 10 is to correspond with the height of the platform. You may need to tweak a bit.
So you enter the whole thing on the init of the unit you want to use.
What I suggest you to is use the RTE editor, which makes it a lot easier and also download Mr-Murrays deluxe arma editing guide

You can also just place them on the guard tower symbol in the editor, might take a few tries before getting them right but when you know the offset its easy.
If you place THIS SETUNITPOS "UP" in their init they will remain standing and not lay down when the shooting starts:)
Also dont put them in a group as they will climb down and regroup.

Haven`t tested that in Arma2 extensively, but in Arma 1 and OFP it was also necessary to
_unit disableAI "MOVE" the unit in the guard tower, because they would otherwise under certain conditions try to run and fall from the tower.
