Thread: INKO Disposable

    INKO Disposable

    INKO Disposable




    Version 1.2 is out!

    Information:
    I have attempted to replicate all basic functionality found in INKO Disposable 1.2 for ArmA2. This addon for ArmA3 Alpha makes the NLAW man-portable anti-tank launchers disposable as it is in real life. After one shot the tube is spent and cannot be reused in any way.

    The spent tube can be thrown away after firing simply by switching weapon (default key: F). AI throws it away automatically shortly after firing.

    DUE TO LACKING SCRIPT FUNCTIONALITY I HAVE LIMITED CONTROL OVER THE WEAPON'S INTERNAL AMMUNITION BOTH FOR PLAYERS AND AI.
    PLEASE VOTE ON THIS TICKET TO HASTEN PROPER FUNCTIONALITY FOR MANY ADDONS: http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=4853


    The addon has full Extended Eventhandler support (and requirement).


    Purpose:
    Aside from being a simple addon for a slightly more realistic game it is in great part designed for other addon-makers.

    The code has been kept as simple and as modular as I have the wits to make it for the simple functionality it has now. It is fully possible to make this work with disposable launchers in other addons by adding a few variables to those launchers's config and should require no tinkering with INKO Disposable at all.



    Version history:
    • v1.2 (2014-01-11):
      - Fixed "undefined variable _unit" error spamming RPT
      - Fixed AI selecting pistol over rifle after firing due to what seems to be a bug in selectWeapon command

    • v1.1 (2013-04-02 [Alpha]):
      - Automatic ammunition management: No longer need to pick up missiles from boxes or the like. If you have an unused launcher you have ammunition. (Thank you Ohally!)
      - Code cleanup: Should use a little less resources and be more reliable. Probably not noticeable for end user.

    • v1.0 (2013-03-15 [Alpha]):
      - Disposable NLAW: One use only. Throw it away when you want to by switching weapon.
      - Thrown tube is physical object in the world (thank you ArmA3 physics for not making it a bounce-machine!)



    !!! IMPORTANT !!!
    This addon requires the Extended EventHandlers found in CBA!

    Thanks to Ohally there might be a partial solution to the ammo-problem. He seems to have found a way to load the weapon like in ArmA2 thanks to changing the config for the magazines. Doesn't make the linked tracker ticket in the OP less valid though!


    Edit: Having tested his solution everything seems to be working as good as it could right now. Still waiting for some additional testing before releasing 1.1.

    Awesome addon!

    And so it begins... this feels like the first step towards ACE!

    New release will be delayed because I will attempt to reduce the script load caused by the addon. Should hopefully be much lighter than the current version, and potentially free of the CBA/XEH requirement.

    Version 1.1 is out! See the main post for changelog and updated download link!

    This is the 'old' 1.1 that I was working on. The new changes that I am working on are over my head (an area of modding for ArmA that I've not touched before) and it'll take a while until I manage to get that to work, so until then you'll get this one to enjoy!

    Apparantly the download refused to work at Filefront, so I am using Dropbox for now. This time the download should work!
