you don't have to mark your position on the map. All you have to do is open Supportcall and choose what you neeed, ammo, weapons, etc. You should see a short confirmation message if i remember correctly. In game you hear a "whoosh" and from out of nowhere a parachute appears which delivers your vehicle or a drum with the requested item. The item will be deleted from the list of available objects, so you can choose everything only once per mission.
OK so I've read the post where you mentioned that you restricted the weapon and armor drop to 1, is there a way, or an older version of this where I can make it unlimited?

I can't get this to work. I have tried almost everything. I am running the newest beta patch 98220 from the website. I am also running arma 2 combined ops. The button does not appear where it is supposed to be or anywhere for that matter. Anyone having this issue and got it to work?
I love this mod! really helpful. I would love to see a ability to make a list of supply's you need before calling for the weapons drop. Saves time since it takes a while to load all those weapons if you have mods. Would love to see an artillery support too!
Yeah arty would be great. Don't think Kronzky is in favor, though, due to mission balance. Next best thing is mortars, you just need to be in range, approx. 500m
I was wondering you plan to release a version compatable with the ACE mod? The ACE menu does not support SupportCall.
By the way, I think your mod is great. One of my biggest complaints about ARMA 2 was there was almost no variation on the loadouts. I was always stuck doing most of the missions as a rifleman and I could never play as a designated marksman or a machinegunner. Also, I love how I can finally play with mod added weapons without hassle.

I played Arma2 up to the Dogs of War in the original campaign before looking for AddOns. Have since made some very fun missions on my own. Of course, I thoroughly enjoy the Support Call you've made here too.
On a lark, I tried using it when I started the DoW mission. I am able to do everything BUT call in air drops. I tried the conventional wisdom of finding open, flat and low lying land... to no avail. I don't hear a crash noise or explosion as suggested above.
I went to the editor and tried calling support from the same location. Worked like a charm without hesitation.
Can anyone offer ideas? Yes, I can go build an army in the mission. Not a problem, and I will play through legit for the challenge. But for giggles I thought it would be fun as heck to lead my mechanized troops from a Tusk.
Addon has been updated for Arma3 compatibility.

Thanks for releasing it for the Alpha!
I've just installed it in my ArmA3 directory and it's displayed under the addons in the options menu. But how do I open it? There's no such option in the pause menu.
Works in singleplayer only, my fault.
