    F2 Mission Development Framework (BAS f for ArmA 2)



    New Release: F2 v2-7-3 (for Combined Operations)

    From the ReadMe.txt file:

    2-7-3 | 07 JUL 2013
    Hot fix: Fixed Kegetys Spectator Script component (broken by ACRE Support component).
    Note: to fix missions built with F2 v2-7-2 simply update f/common/f_spect/specta.sqf with the version from F2 v2-7-3.

    About F2

    The F2 Mission Development Framework (F2) is the successor to the popular BAS f mission development framework for ArmA (discussed in this thread). The new framework contains many of the features you know from BAS f, updated to work with ArmA2 and ArmA2:OA, plus some new components which take advantage of the new game's special features.

    For downloads and to find out more please see our online manual:


    Huge thanks to current contributors and testers, comrades Wolfenswan, Cam, IceRaiser and Kalelovil, and to all at Folk ARPS.

    Looks great!

    This looks pretty amazing! I can not wait to try it later on at home. I love designing MP missions and this should save tons of times and make it easier!

    Quick question:
    Will the fireteam makers work with fire teams in your own group?
    Will this work with High Command Module groups? (since they have their own markers)

    Thanks for great work.

    Congratz Fer!

    Not sure if realistic, yet at least in the long run the dream.

    Written for another project. Does apply here just the same I think.

    A team project?
    All tasks of the project are a huge effort. That includes coding, both fixing and creating
    new features and missions, documentation, website, communication, promoting and more.

    So realistically the only way I can see this project keeping its edge is to transform it
    into a team project at the first step.

    Of course there must be a basic agreement how it will work. Coding standards and proper
    documentation are very important parts of that.

    Even more a cooperation with the PVP script pack of sbsmac and Devastation
    by Dr Eyeball is the way to go.
    Finally the Server side only script addon approach, if working, would allow the system
    of an unified team approach made library back end for any type of mission.
    So the back end is coded in a team effort, and the mission is only used for configuration
    (mission type, zone, units basically).
    Server side only script addon approach

    A (ShackTac) fireteam in F2 corresponds to a specific group (to use the ArmA2 term), so the markers cannot be used to show fireteams which are all part of the same group. For example, the standard ShackTac squad contains three fireteams, but each is a separate group in the editor. If you want to use your own formations (but stick to making fireteams separate groups), it's easy to adapt the component to support your custom group names.

    At present if you run HC at the same time you will see both sets of markers on the HC interface. We're working on integrating better support for HC, so please watch for future releases.

Like BAS f, F2 has been written with scripts that are (hopefully) easy for editors to access and understand themselves. The intent is not only to provide functionality, but also to help editors understand and gain confidence working with scripts. A black box approach would not deliver that important benefit.

    Yes, there is a manual in Russian being written here:

    http://www.ferstaberinde.com/f2/ru/ (Russian version)

    This may not be 100% up to date, but we will be working to get that completed in the following weeks.

    Excellent news, Fer!!

    Hopefully I can solve couple of dedicated server issues with a mission I'm working with.
    I loved this in arma1.



    Keep up the good work.
