Shotfinder Script 2.0

22 posts in this topic

Background Image Source: Link

This script is a development of TacticalGamer.com

Check us out at http://www.tacticalgamer.com/armed-assault/

Summary:

This script enables vehicles to be equipped with a Shot Detection System. The system is currently only able to detect RPG shots within 300m of the vehicle. The system will display a visual representation of the direction that the RPG was fired through the means of a clock-face and text stating the direction in clock-bearing.

The system is based after the Boomerang Shot Detection that is currently in service around the world today. The script does not represent the system as true to real life, but uses it as a basis to work from.

This script is ACE ready and will detect the various RPG projectiles included by the ACE Mod.

To Do:

  • Add ability to detect rifle and other hand-held weapon shots
  • Look into possible JIP issues
  • Create Soldier mounted version with appropriate images and functionality
  • Create non-vehicle based version for placement as a base defense system
  • Make Boomerang model and turn into addon??

I've been looking for something like this for awhile. Really good work dude!

Does the script also work for vanilla Arma2?

It should. I do not believe I used any CBA elements in this script.

New WIP video:

Changes so far:

  • Range display
  • Detects bullets instead of rockets now
  • Detects only incoming shots (± 10 degrees towards vehicle)
  • Added minimum detection range (alterable)

I am working with some friends on making this into an addon. It will feature a usable microphone setup that can be attached to vehicles or placed on the ground. Will also start work on an individual soldier version. More to come.

Cool, but can you keep a script version please?

The script version will still be around, I'll probably update it one last time with some of the changes; however, I cannot/will not release a script version with the increased functionality and models, etc.

I've been working on it on and off for now. I'll probably be putting a lot more work into it in the near future. I'm currently waiting on the models at the moment.

Please, make a no-ACE version!

Currently its only compatible with ACE I will talk to Zephyr about it.

Updates/ Issues

We are literally one short coming from getting the model finished that is that I am having some issues getting the geo modeling functioning properly so you can run through it and cannot use it properly. I also am in need of some desert sand type camouflage but here are some screens of what it looks like now.

It color is all wrong I will work to correct it if some one could help me with the geo mlod We can release as soon as its taken care of.

I'll see what I can do with making a Non-ACE version. I won't guarentee it with the release of the ACE version, but I should be able to make one that will work. It will, however, still require CBA no matter what as a decent amount of the code relies on some of the CBA API.

Sorry for the delay I scratched the old model as I did not like and and began work on the new one.

I have nearly redone the inter model from scratch and Zypher Dark and I are begining to near the end with this project as the scripts are working and now we are just getting set to texture map the model and then paint it.
