Read the DOC, the FAQ and enjoy the game ;) Cheers

The [R3F] Logistics is a collection of scripts to install in a mission (no required addon).

It is MP and SP compatible, dedicated and non-dedicated server compatible.

Its main features are :

• Movable objects : the player can carry an object and walk with it.

• Transportable objects : objects can be loaded into vehicles or containers to transport them.

• Helicopter lift : light vehicles, containers, ammunition crates, etc. can be lifted.

• Towing : some objects, vehicles, and boats, can be towed to a vehicle.

• Creation factory : one or more creation factories can be used as a spawning system.

Each logistics feature can be added or removed on any object or vehicle. It is highly flexible and configurable.

A full documentation is available, read it carefully before asking question.

Absolutely great in A2 and totally awesome in A3 now. The ability to rotate stuff while moving is very cool.

Thank you very much for your effort. Very appreciated !

Looking forward for your Artyscripts....;)

Thanks all for your comments ;)

LUKI;2724858']Are you planning in the future make trailer for transporting boats (attached to the truck after run an action from action-menu for example)?
We thought about that. As we don't want to make it an addon (easier to use for the player)' date=' we have some limitations about the available objects.

But attaching the UGV under the boat could be good. We was already studying this solution :)

Excellent, creation factory reminds me of the coin module from a2
Hehe, I never tried it ;)
Hmm Video wont work in germany, not allowed to see it. Used any pop music? :D

Exact. Thanks for informing us. Unfortunately, the music used in the video blocks it in your country. To see the video, you can use this link.
any sort of ETA on that independent artillery?
Looking forward for your Artyscripts....;)

No ETA for the artillery addon. But don't wait it before november 2014 (now it's summer time :) ).

I wonder if that old R3F Artillery system will work in A3??
There are some modifications to do on dialogs code. And lots of work about balistics, ammunitions, used charges, etc.

thx for the new video link. Its a bit hard to see if players transport alone stuff with some tons of weight. Perhaps lets transport that big stuff only with 2 ppl. oder with 4 and slow the movement to slow mo? This looks like playing Lego. We use RavLifter and igiLoadscript but this moving objects we miss. Is it possible to use only that part and deactivte all the other action script stuff?

Yes, we know that :P But it is a good compromise with the gameplay, ergonomy/intuitiveness for the player, and technical limitations.

You can disable heavy objects to be moved if you think it is not good.

Perhaps lets transport that big stuff only with 2 ppl. oder with 4
It will be too hard to the players to move together and to place the object with a good precision before releasing it.
and slow the movement to slow mo?
Note that the players is forced to walk during the move, and he can't handle its primary weapon (I just realized that it is not obvious in the video).
Is it possible to use only that part and deactivte all the other action script stuff?
Yes. The documentation explains how to.

Wow this is fantastic. Really great stuff.

Adds a whole nother facet to Arma 3.

Base building.

The video was really well done as well. Props to the person that worked to put that together as well.

One question.

Will the AI still walk right through placed objects like in A2?

Thanks for the great work.

This new version of the script R3F_Logistic is already on a new H24 mission on our public server : that's brings a great deal of realism to ArmA 3 warfare.
