The Orphaned Projects Thread

35 posts in this topic

Hello Community! Like many content developers for this community I have started projects that I will never come around to finishing or would like to finish but simply do not have the time right now.

This thread will allow people like me and others to post projects that are not in a finished state and allow them to be taken by the community and developed further and released (on their own).

I hope that this will spur completion of many more projects and the realization of peoples ideas.

RULES

  1. This thread is NOT for requesting addons or making addon suggestions (there are threads for that), it is for developers who want to post their work for others to freely work on.
  2. This thread is NOT for forming teams of developers explicitly, do not post requests for team members here!
  3. This thread is for posting links to content immediately available. Do NOT post things such as "PM for links", content must be freely available to download at anyones discretion.
  4. Developers that wish to pick up an orphan project should post when they have picked up an orphaned project. This will hopefully facilitate team building, but please keep team building posts outside of this thread.
  5. If you release an addon originally posted here, please cross reference them so authors and other people know that the content has been released.
  6. Developers that pick up a project shall respect the individual rules of the poster, including rights of credit and distribution.
  7. THIS THREAD IS NOT FOR PEOPLE TO DOWNLOAD CONTENT AND THEN EXPECT IT TO BE RELEASE QUALITY OR USED IN MISSIONS! This thread will NOT be used to field support questions on content posted here. If you have questions PM the original author/poster, but respect their requests of not supporting them if they make them.
  8. All content posted here must be your own, or posted with the permission of the original author(s)! This is the same as any other addon thread!

Fan/news sites, I would request that you do NOT mirror the links posted here. While they are posted in the complete section they are not technically complete and might be so broken that it leads to game instability or other issues.

EXAMPLE

Below is an example post of what should be the standard format for posting orphaned projects.

---------------------- example ---------------------------

Addon Title

Description

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec elit sapien, auctor eget imperdiet vel, euismod in lacus. Vestibulum luctus porta mattis. Vivamus mollis viverra malesuada. Duis eu ipsum dui. Nulla facilisi. Sed porttitor tempus leo in venenatis. Aenean mauris urna, pulvinar et suscipit nec, commodo et lectus. In blandit commodo sapien et pharetra. Morbi lobortis vestibulum feugiat. Vestibulum in ligula vel elit scelerisque cursus ac ac erat. Donec tempus aliquet dapibus. Duis blandit auctor feugiat. Vestibulum convallis justo sit amet dui interdum eget scelerisque elit pharetra. Morbi id risus sit amet erat rutrum volutpat vel eget velit.

Nullam magna lectus, tincidunt sit amet consequat nec, convallis vitae urna. Nullam mi neque, venenatis sed tristique nec, imperdiet eget sem. Vestibulum at mollis justo. Aliquam venenatis iaculis metus, vel posuere nisi mollis ut. Nulla pharetra justo a turpis porta lobortis quis eu mauris. Cras fermentum, lorem eu luctus ornare, quam nunc interdum diam, eget congue nunc tortor vel neque. Nulla facilisi. Integer volutpat sem at nulla porttitor eu ultrices leo sodales. Maecenas pulvinar tortor ut dolor rhoncus eu tristique arcu posuere. Vestibulum vitae sem mauris. Vivamus tincidunt sagittis metus id mattis.

Intention

This should be what your intent of the addon is, it can be excluded if you have covered that in the description. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec elit sapien, auctor eget imperdiet vel, euismod in lacus. Vestibulum luctus porta mattis. Vivamus mollis viverra malesuada. Duis eu ipsum dui. Nulla facilisi. Sed porttitor tempus leo in venenatis. Aenean mauris urna, pulvinar et suscipit nec, commodo et lectus. In blandit commodo sapien et pharetra. Morbi lobortis vestibulum feugiat. Vestibulum in ligula vel elit scelerisque cursus ac ac erat. Donec tempus aliquet dapibus. Duis blandit auctor feugiat. Vestibulum convallis justo sit amet dui interdum eget scelerisque elit pharetra. Morbi id risus sit amet erat rutrum volutpat vel eget velit.

Media

Post media, pictures, youtube videos, etc here.

Rules

This section should be a list of rules on the use of the content, an EXAMPLE follows:

  1. Credit original author when releasing.
  2. Addon work must be released to the general public, not for private use.
  3. Any changes to model must be redistributed back upstream.

If you want to post any sort of software license that does not conflict with the BIS terms of use then this would be the place to do it.

Requirements

If this is already dependent on another modification such as CBA or ACE then please post them here. Do NOT forget this part!!!

Download Links

Post links to download here. If using free hosting, please try to use the least annoying.

References

Post links to anything you have used as reference here, links to FAS, Globalsecurity, Janes, Field or Technical manuals, or anything else that might help other developers that want to continue development.

---------------------- end example ---------------------------

Below is a code snippet for people to use for their own posts. Please try to follow this format when posting orphaned content.

[color=red][b][size=5]-- REPLACE -- Addon Title -- REPLACE --[/size][/b][/color]

[color=red][b][size=3]References[/size][/b][/color]

I hope this thread comes of use for people and leads to more content from the community. Maybe even see some healthy competition on implementations of other peoples original ideas. I will be posting my first orphan soon. If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve this process then please let me know! :yay:

-- Fun with Particles --

Description

some fun for my scalar towers... and to see how particles can be used in abstract ways.

Intention

i was / did make a mission (boogie men) where these towers were an objective. with the help of spooner we were able to produce some fun. this is more an orphaned proof of concept than an orphaned 'project'. it is meant to show with example that a lot can be done with the arma particle system.

use as you will.

Pointing Addon

Description

This addon allows people to "point" at things and allow people around them to see what they are pointing at. It will help in facilitate coordination during multiplayer play.

Intention

The intention was to easily show where people are pointing. Since you do not have the same field of view or the same ability to focus or follow visual cues such as someones finger I devised an aid to help show where someone is pointing. The person pointing uses a target cursor in the center of their screen. Wherever that target cursor is looking it shows a blob on the screen of other people close by.

I limited the opacity and the size of the blob based on the distance and angle to the person pointing. This makes it so that the person generally has to be standing right next to, behind or in front of the person pointing for it to be of any use.

The two main things holding me back from completing this further though was, first, the realization that it would create much network traffic and could cause lag/desync and second that it would be unfair of other players, especially in PvP scenarios, for them to be able to point and not be seen pointing. For example if you are under sniper fire and you begin pointing at the sniper, the sniper should see if someone is pointing at him. This would require an animation (a static animation would be fine).

Media

Rules

Rules are really basic on this one... :)

  1. If you release, please credit me for the idea.

Requirements

No additional requirements.

Download Links

The addon currently runs as mission scripts for development purposes and are provided as two missions (the one on Utes is the most recent I think, its been about a year since I touched it).

Uh-1D by Ugga

Description

Model is ready but unmapped. granQ (me) don't mind making animations and stuff if someone is keen on doing the mapping and textures.

Intention

From Ugga's release file:

This is only intended as a preview.

I want to give people the oppertunity to go all over it and bitch about all the small things that are

off/wrong/stupid/whatever.

The areas of intreset are Lod 1.000 and the View - Pilot lod.

I'm not done with this yet, I still need to map textures and whatnot.

However this is an Open Source release. If you want to map textures yourself (and fix all the other stuff)

Go ahead and do so.

granQ note, Ugga wanted this to be open source, he is no longer active in the community but a friend of mine so any questions, PM me.

Media

Will be uploaded later.

Rules

Requirements

This model is free to use by anyone as long as:

*I am mentioned and credited as the original author (Ugga)

*The model, textures etc. are not converted to any other game/engine (BIS EULA for modding stuff with Oxygen etc.)

*The model/addon remains open source. If the model/addon is not distributed in a un-encrypted form (for reasons of file-size etc.)

the addon must be available in a open soruce un-encrypted separate download

*The model/addon is distributed free of charge

Revive Script Suite

Description

Revive Suite - non-addon based suite of scripts that creates playable units that fall unconscious when killed, which can then be revived. Enabling the ability to revive and heal other players, along with the combination of revive and respawn can really enrich your mission. The scripts can be used to enforce co-operation between players as you'll need to stick together and help one another to successfully complete a mission and they can also be used to limit the number of lives given to each player in respawn missions. These canned scripts take the guess work out of building respawn and revive into your mission and be used with the AI-enabled or disabled in the description.ext or at the mission briefing screen. There are an enormous number of variables and options that can be tweaked to suit your playing style.

These scripts were initially released several months after the release of ArmA and have been in continual development since then.

They were initially based upon concepts created by PRiMe, toadlife, [APS]Gnat and Mongoose_84 for OFP.

Scripts primarily written by myself but I have received the help of many community members along the way including: Xeno, Hoz at OFPEC and Z-Special Unit (http://www.zspecialunit.org), my friends at MAPFACT - MCPXXL, Sgt. Ace and Lester, Dr_Eyeball, Le_CuLtO, HulkingUnicorn, Ghost, satexas69, SNKMAN, sickboy, vengeance1 (JAAF), Legislator, Alef, Rommel, Raedor and Foxhound and ArmAholic for their great support and providing mirrors for all my scripts.

Intention

I no longer have time to pursue or support these scripts and would like the code available to any would-be users for non-commercial purposes only.

Requirements and licensing

These scripts are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike License (CC BY-NC-SA)

-- Boeing 767 --

Description

Here is the Boeing 767.

Its a port from a opf model from Gachopin who give me permission to bring it to Arma 2. Because of some rl issues I cant complete the addon, because many people like the idea of a Boeing 767 in arma 2 and because of the many hours people spent on working on the plane.

Right know the model is in the following state:

- model --> 70 %

- Texture --> 90 %

- Scripting --> 50 %

Intention

to fly this baby in arma 2

-- Abrams crew --

Description

Right, so I made this tank personnel from the sample pack and various released community mlods. Thanks Binkowski and Johannes. I made this for fun and I don't really intend on making an addon for just a tank operator. So I'm releasing this here for anyone who wants to put it in their addons or want to create personals mods to replace the shitty vanilla tank operator. Warning: This ain't some shitty reskin. This is the real deal. Everything has been optimized and upgraded to work in Arma 2/OA. Has backpack proxy, correct lods and shadow lods. Just write your own configs and enjoy!

Thanks for the contributions guys.

FYI, limiting use to "BIS products" doesn't stop others from making shit loads of money from your hard work.

BI or BIS have military products too and 3rd party commercial developers interested in anything they can grab free.

RECOMMEND:

You're not allowed to use the contents for any miltary or commercial package.

But sure, some of you may not care. np.
