I've got a map and tehre is enemy around the place and I have my guy starting in placement radius...however, sometimes he starts off in the middle of the enemy group, how can I make a start here, or here, or here thing and not random anywhere?
I bully polygons
try a random script
put in some game logics where the dude might possibly appaer
tehn create a random script (better ask a better scripter tehn me ) which randomyl picsk one of these logics and puts the player to teh logic
Put three game logics on the map (On land, please ). Name them rppos1, rppos2, and rppos3. Now make a little script:
<table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">_a = [rppos1,rppos2,rppos3]
_r = random 3
?(_r <= 1): _s = 0
?((_r > 1) && (_r <= 2)): _s = 1
?((_r > 2) && (_r <= 3)): _s = 2
_p = _a select _s
player setpos getpos _p
It's possible without a script.
Place empty "markers" at the all places where you want to start the mission. Now group every marker with the player. It's a bit tricky because you have to work with invisible markers...
That's all, you will start randomly at one of those markers, simple as that.
BIS 've used this method in the official paintball Malden MP mission.
