Today should be the last day of interrupted service - tomorrow we'd like to stage the entire Beta on this branch. Everything is too dependent on everything else to do any sort of partial update in the meantime.

The full Beta was staged on this branch. We will try to update the binary today with 2 WIP fixes:

  • Doppler effect in sounds
  • Script error after loading MP savegame

A full changelog is coming on Tuesday, but here are some relevant changes for user-generated content :)

Removed config classes

Motivation: These classes were not used by default soldier load-outs and we deemed them unnecessary. Some of them used wrong optics for the given side of the weapon, some didn't make any sense. We would like to encourage adding different weapons rather via scripting and specific add-ons to them than having bazillions of pre-defined guns few people are likely to use and we cannot maintain quality control on them all.

arifle_MX_TWS_snds_F, arifle_MX_ACOg_point_F, arifle_MX_GL_ACOg_point_F, arifle_MX_GL_COWS_point_F, arifle_MXC_Holo_point_snds_F, arifle_MXC_ACOg_point_F, arifle_MXC_COWS_point_F, arifle_MXC_ACO_flash_F, arifle_MXC_ACOg_flash_F, arifle_MXC_Nstalker_point_F, arifle_MX_SW_ARCO_point_F, arifle_MX_SW_NVS_point_snds_F, arifle_MX_SW_TWSMG_point_snds_F, arifle_MXM_ARCO_point_F, arifle_MXM_SOS_point_F, arifle_MXM_TWSS_F, arifle_Khaybar_C_Nstalker_point_F, arifle_Khaybar_C_ACOg_flash_snds_F, arifle_Khaybar_C_ACOg_F, arifle_Khaybar_COWS_point_F, arifle_Khaybar_Hamr_point_F, arifle_Khaybar_Nstalker_point_F, arifle_Khaybar_TWS_F, arifle_Khaybar_GL_COWS_point_F, arifle_Khaybar_GL_Nstalker_point_F, LMG_Mk200_COWS_point_snds_F, LMG_Mk200_COWS_pointer_F, LMG_Mk200_TWSMG_F, LMG_Mk200_Holo_point_F, LMG_Mk200_Holo_point_snds_F, LMG_Mk200_ACO_F, LMG_Mk200_ACO_point_F, arifle_TRG20_Nstalker_point_F, arifle_TRG20_Holo_point_F, arifle_TRG21_Hamr_point_F, arifle_TRG21_COWS_point_F, arifle_TRG21_Nstalker_point_F, arifle_TRG21_GL_Hamr_point_F, arifle_TRG21_GL_ARCO_point_F, arifle_TRG21_GL_COWS_point_F, arifle_TRG21_GL_Nstalker_point_F, arifle_Mk20C_ACO_snds_F, arifle_Mk20_COWS_point_F, arifle_Mk20_GL_Mark_F, arifle_Mk20_Mark_F, srifle_EBR_Nstalker_point_F, srifle_EBR_SOS_F, srifle_EBR_ACO_point_F, srifle_EBR_Holo_F, srifle_EBR_Mark_point_snds_F, srifle_EBR_Hamr_F, srifle_EBR_Hamr_point_F, arifle_SDAR_ACO_point_F

  • LMG_Mk200_ARCO_F -> LMG_Mk200_MRCO_F
  • LMG_Mk200_ARCO_pointer_F -> LMG_Mk200_pointer_F
  • arifle_SDAR_ACOg_F -> arifle_SDAR_ACO_grn_F
  • arifle_SDAR_ACO_F -> arifle_SDAR_ACO_red_F
  • arifle_SDAR_ARCO_point_F -> arifle_SDAR_ARCO_pointer_F
  • arifle_SDAR_Nstalker_point_F -> arifle_SDAR_Nstalker_pointer_F
  • srifle_EBR_MRCO_point_F -> srifle_EBR_MRCO_pointer_F

  • arifle_TRG20_ACOg_point_F -> arifle_TRG20_ACO_pointer_F
  • arifle_TRG20_ACOg_flash_snds_F -> arifle_TRG20_ACO_flash_F
  • arifle_TRG21_ACOg_point_F -> arifle_TRG21_ACO_pointer_F

  • arifle_Mk20_GL_ACOgrn_F -> arifle_Mk20_GL_ACO_F
  • srifle_EBR_ACOg_point_F -> srifle_EBR_ACO_pointer_F
  • srifle_EBR_Mark_F -> srifle_EBR_MRCO_pointer_F

Reasoning: Weapon class names have been unified across the whole scale of weapons to be more consistent with the rest of game. There is no need to differentiate ACO colors in the class name of the weapon because each weapon is given only to specific side which use some color of ACO.

  • MH9_Base_F -> Heli_Light_01_base_F
  • B_MH9_F -> B_Heli_Light_01_F
  • AH9_Base_F -> Heli_Light_01_armed_base_F
  • B_AH9_F -> B_Heli_Light_01_armed_F
  • Rubber_duck_base -> Rubber_duck_base_F
  • B_Assaultboat -> B_Boat_Transport_01_F
  • O_Assaultboat -> O_Boat_Transport_01_F
  • Rescue_duck_base -> Rescue_duck_base_F
  • Speedboat_Base -> Boat_Armed_01_base_F
  • Speedboat_minigun_Base -> Boat_Armed_01_minigun_base_F
  • B_SpeedBoat -> B_Boat_Armed_01_minigun_F
  • O_SpeedBoat -> O_Boat_Armed_01_hmg_F
  • Hunter_Base -> MRAP_01_base_F
  • Hunter_RCWS_Base -> MRAP_01_gmg_base_F
  • Hunter_HMG_Base -> MRAP_01_hmg_base_F
  • B_Hunter_F -> B_MRAP_01_F
  • B_Hunter_RCWS_F -> B_MRAP_01_gmg_F
  • B_Hunter_HMG_F -> B_MRAP_01_hmg_F
  • Ifrit_Base -> MRAP_02_base_F
  • Ifrit_MG_Base -> MRAP_02_hmg_base_F
  • Ifrit_GMG_Base -> MRAP_02_gmg_base_F
  • O_Ifrit_F -> O_MRAP_02_F
  • O_Ifrit_MG_F -> O_MRAP_02_hmg_F
  • O_Ifrit_GMG_F -> O_MRAP_02_gmg_F
  • Offroad_Base -> Offroad_01_base_F
  • c_offroad -> C_Offroad_01_F
  • Quadbike_Base_F -> Quadbike_01_base_F
  • B_Quadbike_F -> B_Quadbike_01_F
  • O_Quadbike_F -> O_Quadbike_01_F
  • Mk6_Mortar_Base -> Mortar_01_base_F
  • B_Mk6 -> B_Mortar_01_F
  • O_Mk6 -> O_Mortar_01_F
  • B_Mk6Mortar_Support -> B_Mortar_01_support_F
  • B_Mk6Mortar_Wpn -> B_Mortar_01_weapon_F

Reasoning: We decided to change class names of vehicles to more generic ones to support possible renaming (as it may be seen on some assets) and easier mission scripting. It should be easier for mission maker to simply add a MRAP by describing it in class name rather to remember all the names of assets.

Script command changes

  • Script command "items" returns only items that are not magazines, explosives, grenades and that are not linked to unit
  • Script command "addItem" returns error message "No entry...!" if invalid config name is used
  • Script command "removeAllItems" removes only items listed by command "items"
  • Script command "weapons" lists also weapons in inventory
  • Script command "removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon" renamed to "removePrimaryWeaponItem"
  • Returned array of script command "assignedItems" does not contain headgear and goggles
  • New script command "removeAllPrimaryWeaponItems"
  • New script command "removeHandgunItem"
  • New script command "removeAllHandgunItems"
  • New script command "canAdd"
  • New script command "primaryWeaponMagazine"
  • New script command "secondaryWeaponMagazine"
  • New script command "handgunMagazine"

EXE rev. 107360

Size: ~162 MB

  • Fixed: Cargo cannot take control from commander
  • Weight and capacity of all uniforms, vests and bags overhauled into one logical, balanced and gradually scaling norm, where bags of the same type and/or purpose should share corresponding values with minor side unique differences.

The purpose was to make the capacity potential more organized and also little less prone to cases of missing equipment caused by design changes in unit inventory loads.

  • Added: BIS_fnc_endMission is now terminated when trying to trigger a good ending over a bad one

  • Engines of armed Strider hit points now have correct names
  • Fixed: HEMTT exhaust right next to passenger head
