  1. With Tanks DLC one of our priorities is to improve the feeling of driving a tank or any other tracked vehicle. Refine how the vehicles perform, handle or simply how enjoyable they are. What do the improvements consist of: updated PhysX libraries to 3.4 and switched wheel contact queries from raycast to sweep. We believe the precision and reliability of terrain traversal has improved quite significantly. On the other hand it's been a change that undoubtedly affects already released content. Especially the n-wheeled vehicles and tanks. Watch out for new issues with us, please. Report anything suspicious. And if your own mod got negatively affected by the update - get in touch with us asap ;) revisited physics configuration of individual vehicles, their engines, drivetrains and suspensions. Together with new config. properties and options. revisited sound configuration, with new samples and new approaches AI tank driving - AI driving feedback topic, following up on previous AI car driving refactoring player tank commanding changed to direct control over the vehicle (test) Most of these changes are WIP, to test things and get feedback from you!
  2. ABOUT Disclaimer: There are some minor issues with handling in the current version such as speed going over water and AI having trouble driving. These have been fixed in the dev branch with the new tank Physx, will update after the patch comes out. The Mephisto is a state of the art fighting vehicle developed by the United States in tandem with some members of the EU. It prioritizes speed, flexibility, and firepower over traditional protection. With a cruising speed of 60kph and a top speed of 110kph it can easily pass over terrain inaccessible to traditional armored vehicles. It is armed with a high velocity 75mm auto-loading cannon situated in an unmanned turret. It can fire both AP and deadly neutron shells effective against most targets. Instead of a traditional co-axial machine gun, Mephisto comes equipped with a lethal microwave emitter. Its armor protection is not nearly as good as a traditional MBT, more akin to an IFV. However it makes up for this with a powerful active protection system that can be manually activated to intercept ATGMs and AT rockets for a short time. It can be found under Nato / Tanks Camo can be changed in the virtual garage (Arid, Forest, Snow, Experimental) DOWNLOAD
  3. INTRODUCTION 4th Special Forces Group (Airborne) (4SFG (A)) is a ARMA community that aims to provide a realistic experience of simulation combat and operations. Our first priority is to create an enjoyable experience to our members, while training to become more efficient week after week. We focus on building a community which is vibrant, cooperative, and friendly so that regardless of what game we are playing, we may have a community to enjoy those experiences with. HOW WE CATEGORIZE OURSELVES Every Unit has their own definition of milsim. Here we pride ourselves as relaxed in the rear and serious in any official unit event, meeting, operation, and/or counseling. During game time, we strive to conduct ourselves in a professional manner, and focus on employing the tactics and strategies that we regularly train on together. If we are not in an official unit event, rank comes off and we become a giant group of family/friends that share music, videos, other games, and more. WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER We built our own Training Installation where we practice drills on custom ranges and courses our S-3 team has constructed for us. We have also designed a series of mission templates involving custom architecture using the Eden Editor to help with advanced training. You will not experience anything similar in ArmA unless you build it yourself! 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment (3rdBN/75 RGR) Missions include Airborne / Air assaults Direct Action Operations Raids Airfield Seizure Recovery of Personnel and Special Equipment 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment - Delta (1st SFOD-D (A)) Missions include Direct Action Counter Terrorism Special Reconnaissance Unconventional Warfare Foreign Internal Defense Hostage Rescue Personnel Recovery 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (160th SOAR (A)) Missions include Insertion/extraction of special operations forces (SOF) Attack missions Reconnaissance GET CONNECTED Age Requirement: 18+ Years old.

  4. Hello world. I'm glad to share my project for Arma 3, I have been working on it a few months and i think is time to make it official. The mod is aimed to cover some units and equipment currently in service -and some in current development- with the Argentine Army. I choose the TAM 2C (Tanque Argentino Mediano Version 2C) to start. Vehicles: TAM Family: TAM 2C ** TAM VCTP (Armored IFV) TAM VCPC (Mobile Command ) TAM VCRT (Recovery) VCA Palmaria (155mm Artillery ) TAM VC AMUN (Supply) LVC CP30 Agrale Marrua M10/M20 HMMWV Variants Polaris MRZR-4 Ford F-350 TSCR (Comms) --------- Static objects: Tents (inc.variants) Ammo Boxes MANPADS RBS-70 Skyguard M /FCS Oerlikon GDF-002 AA CALIV 105mm ** CITER 155mm CARDES (Disposable demining tool ) ** UAV: MALE VIGIA-2A ** -------------------------------------------------------------- ... Here some screenshots: There's so much to do, and this are my first steps on modeling and texturing, a good way to improve my skills :) I'm not will made a 100% accurate version of vehicles and objects, but some things can vary over time. The mod is set on year 2035. Some equipment gonna be upgraded on that timeline. [All assets are subject to change. ] More updates soon! Forgive my bad English .-
  5. After a 14 year break from releasing an addon, I'm giving it a new shot. Helping fill out the British armed forces faction with the CVRT Scimitar and Scorpion. Light tanks designed and deployed in the 60s/70s, the CVRT range is an interesting anomaly in the history of armoured vehicles: light, fast and roadworthy. Scorpion had a 76mm gun, Scimitar the 30mm rarden cannon. Scimitar is being replaced by Ajax/Scout SV and RWMIK over the next couple years and Scorpion dissapeared in the 90s, but these still seem like the perfect class of vehicle for the armaverse: Not totally impervious and steamroll capable like Challenger 2, but more than handy in an infantry support role or zipping around Altis as formation recce. Planning to cover different variations from its timeline, but probably will hold off on Scimitar 2 (a UOR that mated Scimitar turret with Samson APC hull to add more IED protection and ECM gubbins) unless I get around to making CVRT Samson to the level of detail it deserves. Similarly, not gonna bother with CVRT Sabre (Fox armoured car turret on the CVRT hull). On the cards: different hidden selections, camo options, markings and potentially some OPFOR faction variations for Scorpion in particular - it got shipped around the world. Progress on variations: Early cold war era Scorpion with wading screens and old style engine deck. Perfect for Germany, Norway, defending the homeland and the Falklands deployment. Mid life gulf war era Scimitar with IR plates, storage and other gubbins slapped on in the attempt to fit into the harsh desert environ and keeping up with the combined arms battle space. Late life uparmoured Scimitar. A diesel engine upgrade and Thermal Imaging extended the lifespan and capability of the tank far into our recent incursions in the middle east. Bar armour and ECM will also be an option.
  6. Finally, a weeks ago Israel released IFV version of Namer and armed with a turret of 30mm bushmaster II if in the upcoming tank DLC we can have some new IFV, this is the best option Slammer (Merkava) chassis has already been used on multiple vehicle in the game,such as panther APC(Namer APC) If we have Namer IFV, the blufor can finally have a tracked IFV upcoming tank DLC have very high possibility include a tank design based on T-14 armata which we see BI's art designer checking the picture of T-14 in 7:08 so we just leave it, it's already like half-confirmed but i don't have any idea what blufor and independent could get to use it could be some abandoned project of 140mm gun Abrams, ATAC. the two prototype become CATTB and THUMPER but they all abandoned long ago also they are no match to the unmaned turret design T-14 the one could be used for blufor is the M1 block III,but not even prototype been made people are sick of seeing Merkava as NATO MBT a long time, so i guess the new blufor MBT can based on this two U.S project for independent, honestly Puma (Leopard2 Revolution) is already one of the top rank of tank that you can get for independent if there gonna be new tank for independent, it could be similar performance but more eastern design T-84M Oplot-M is a decemt choice, or a Chinese VT-4, Russian T-90MS, French LecLerc but tank itself are not really that important, what i would like to see in tank dlc is some counter tanks and more fun ground vehicles for example, the Russian BMPT BI can mix the design of this thing with current T-100 vursk (Object640) chassis in the game and it will become a game changing vehicle Tiger-M armed with 8 rounds of Kornet-EM ATGM,this design can simply put it on top of Ifrit (ZiL Punisher) we need some real ATGM in the game,not that stupid Titan (Israel Spike) launcher. The missile which are not being jammed by smoke. some of the new active protection way (IR jammer\ laser counter Aerosol) can be develop for counter it LOSAT and Spike NLOS can add based on Hunter chassis and give to Blufor Independent can have Strider(LGS Fennek) armed with titan launcher this is one good way to stop the non-stoping tank hill camping in KOTH and any situation. OLD TANKS i really would like to request some old tanks in the game, some good old fashion T-72M1 with kontakt-1 the AKM and RPG-7 in apex DLC is a suprise, and absolutely gorgeous to see them. i was thinking what if we have some old tanks as well. No thermal imaging,no fancy new FCS, no remote weapon station , but with still decent protection and fire power. i knew i can just load RHS but i want to play this in KOTH as well. It's a shame if we only receive 3 MBT for each side, such a waste.
  7. Tank elevation angles

    This is my first forum post here so if this is not in the right place feel free to move it, I, and probably others, have noticed that the gun depression values on some tanks are incorrect as compared to their real-life counterparts. This includes the MBT-52 Kuma (Leopard 2 revolution) and the Slammers (Merkava MK4). I have looked into the files and for the Kuma it appears to have -9°, this however isn't what we have in game because they changed it in patch 1.58. The cannon was clipping the back end of the vehicle (and still is) so they gave it -5° to stop it from clipping. But because elevation angles are uniform this overrides the -9°.... I suggest making two "gun depression variables", one for the "maximum" minimum elevation (-9°)and one for the "minimum" minimum elevation (0°).There should also be a transition between the two. Below I have a link to the feedback ticket, of you want Bohemia to fix this or take a look at it, please comment on that feedback ticket so it can get some traction :) https://feedback.bistudio.com/T123481 Thank you for your time!
  8. Hi guys: I just realized that in both T-100 and M2A4, the HEAT is more powerful than APFDS?? For example, for T-100, HEAT had DirectHit 800, IndirectHit 40, IndirectHitRange 2, but APFDS had only DirectHit 550, IndirectHit 20, IndirectHitRange 0.5. I tested it, and HEAT round really hit armor more damage. Previously I thought APFDS is better at heavy armor. APFDS=armor piercing fin stabilized discarding sabot, it should be OK. And it is said that APFDS is targeting heavy armor. So what does HEAT mean? High explosive anti tank?? Does it mean that it uses chemical energy to destroy armor? Or it is dual purpose? It might be reasonable if it is the former, and it is amazing if it is dual purpose shell, even powerful than AP round. Also, the M2A4 used HEAT_MP_T rounds, so it indicates Multi-Purpose??? Any one could explain what is the purpose of HEAT, and why Arma 3 set such values? Finally, by the way, my custom mission AFCS SP version has been updated, which showed the data of vehicle ammo. You can check this issue easily with that mission, and I also realized this when I play it, :D. Dragon
  9. I want to randomize the damage on a car on the start of a mission, same thing with a tank and helicopter and so on. What are the codes for each part and how do I make it random? Is there some place to reference each part of a car/tank/helicopter like a website I could use?
  10. Hi there everyone so here is what i'm trying to create i want three Tanks to spawn with crew and then move to waypoints after a certain amount of time has elapsed. This is what i have so far.. major disclaimer here I've been experimenting with a lot of this just seeing how certain things work and trying to get the basic understanding of the language so Arma 3 coding veterans prepare the defibrillators because you might need to restart your hearts after seeing this. On a side note if anyone has any tips on learning how to code SQF, SQS etc in arma please let me know as im hungry to learn this language but can't find any good material anywhere. //if (isServer) then { _type = _this select 0; _mark = _this select 1; _time = _this select 2; _slaGrp = createGroup INDEPENDENT; //Sherman #1 _vehicleObject = createVehicle ["LIB_M4A3_75_Tubes", getMarkerPos "spawn1", [], 1, ""];_vehicleObject setDir 217.344; _S1vehicleName = "sherman1"; missionNamespace setVariable [_S1vehicleName,_vehicleObject]; publicVariable _S1vehicleName; //Sherman #1 Crew _s1Inf = "LIB_US_tank_crew" createUnit [ getMarkerPos "spawn1crew", _slaGrp]; missionNamespace setVariable _s1Inf; publicVariable _s1Inf; _s1Inf moveInDriver "sherman1"; //Sherman #2 Crew _s2Inf = "LIB_US_tank_crew" createUnit [ getMarkerPos "spawn1crew", _slaGrp]; missionNamespace setVariable [_s2Inf]; publicVariable _s2Inf; _s2Inf moveInGunner "sherman1"; //Sherman #3 Crew _s3Inf = "LIB_US_tank_crew" createUnit [ getMarkerPos "spawn1crew", _slaGrp]; missionNamespace setVariable [_s3Inf]; publicVariable _s3Inf; _s3Inf moveInCommander "sherman1"; //createVehicleCrew (sherman1 select 0); //Sherman #2 //_vehicleObject = createVehicle ["LIB_M4A3_75_Tubes", getMarkerPos "spawn2", [], 1, ""];_vehicleObject setDir 217.344; //_S2vehicleName = "sherman2"; //missionNamespace setVariable [_S2vehicleName,_vehicleObject]; //publicVariable _S2vehicleName; //createVehicleCrew (sherman2 select 0); //Sherman #3 // = createVehicle ["LIB_M4A3_75_Tubes", getMarkerPos "spawn3", [], 1, ""];_vehicleObject setDir 217.344; //_S3vehicleName = "sherman3"; //missionNamespace setVariable [_S3vehicleName,_vehicleObject]; // _S3vehicleName; //createVehicleCrew (sherman3 select 0); //};
  11. I thought I might as well ask someone for their expertise before I push out a play-doe colored tank because after all the time I spent making the damn thing it'd be a shame if it looked like a 2 year old colored it in with a crayon :P The tank must be UV unwrapped and textured... PM me if interested in helping.

  14. Hi all, Want to play with a "One man tank"? Here is a little script for "World of tank" aficionados. Works on all tanks in game, as far as you can jump into the driver's seat. Usage: you're driver until you move the mouse, pointing cannon at cursor direction. Driver is always in 3rd person. Then, you're gunner but you can use your keys to continue driving the tank. - in external view, you'll be back at driver's seat if no waypoint (see further) and no turret movement for 10 seconds. - in gunner view, you stay as gunner role and continue to drive. - if in gunner view and right click on landscape, you create a temporary waypoint where the tank goes as far as you don't touch any of the driver's keys. Driver's keys will delete this waypoint when strike. Hints to know: - when driving from gunner's seat, avoid maintaining the forward key when you need to turn. release all, strike left(/right), maintain if you want; As soon as the direction is good, release left(/right) key, strike forward key. The tank will start to sway a little around the desired direction but will go where you want. Remember release all keys to make change. - there is no rear clutch while in gunner, just because Arma's engine prefers a 180° turn instead of a 10 meter rear drive... So, I disabled the backward key in gunner. Other stuffs: There are 2 parameters O/1 for displaying: - tank icon, in order to have a clear view of the direction of the tank when you are in gunner view. Gun is always up, of course. - little radar displaying other vehicles in game, along with knowledge of these units. Now, the function. Just add it into init.sqf or initPlayer.sqf, or any script which run for player: MGI_1ManTank = { params [["_icon",1,[0]],["_radar",1,[0]]]; if (!hasInterface) exitWith {}; MGI_iTk = _icon; MGI_rdrTk = _radar;

  15. The Stridsvagn 103 (STRV 103), also known as the S-Tank, was a Swedish post-war main battle tank. It was known for its unconventional design: it was turretless with a fixed gun traversed by engaging the tracks and elevated by adjusting the hull suspension. While turretless armoured fighting vehicles are usually classified as assault guns or tank destroyers, despite its unique gun laying process the Strv 103 is considered a tank because its designated combat role matched those of other tanks within contemporary Swedish doctrine. It is the only tank of any kind since World War II to dispense with a turret. The Strv 103 was designed and manufactured in Sweden. It was developed in the 1950s and was the first main battle tank to use a turbine engine. The result was a very low-profile design with an emphasis on survivability and heightened crew protection level. Strv 103s formed a major portion of the Swedish armoured forces from the 1960s to part of the 1990s, when, along with the Centurions, it was replaced with the Stridsvagn 121 and the Stridsvagn 122. Introduction The mod in question is a 1960s Swedish Main Battle Tank with a unique design. No turret and a fixed gun. Madness you say? Indeed. This tank was designed with defensive operations in mind, following Swedish army doctrine. Its unique design allowed a lower profile tank that was capable of digging itself into a hull down position (note the Fold-able bulldozer) to hold off against its enemy. Keep in mind that in the 1960's most tanks had no form of stabilizer as they do today, so the conventional tank had to stop to fire, so this left the 103 with no disadvantage to other tanks of its time and that is also the reason it was scrapped in 1997 replaced with a Swedish variant of the Leopard 2A5. Tank in Arma 3 Crew spot WIP. The 103 was crewed by 3, A driver/gunner, a commander, and a systems operator. All 3 members could drive the tank (Systems operator only in reverse). No loader as the 103 had an AutoLoader with a 4 second reload time. The tank was powered by two engines, a diesel for slow cruising and maneuvering the tank in aiming, and by a Caterpillar turbine, it was the first use of a turbine engine in a production tank. It armament Consisted of Bofors 105 mm L74 rifled gun with 50 rounds, its Secondary armament's were 2 fixed 7.62 mm KSP 58 (swedish FN MAG) machine guns 1 anti-aircraft 7.62 mm KSP 58 machine gun. An interesting point to note is that the tank is fired and aimed by the driver, but the commander also had the option to do this. An interesting point to note is that the tank is fired and aimed by the driver, but the commander also had the option to do this too, it was possible to operate the 103 by one person. Now on to the suspension, since the gun was fixed the whole tank had to move to aim at something, it did this by engaging the tracks and elevating by adjusting the hull suspension. Here is a video of it in action: http://youtu.be/HUPfnAbFlfU?t=116 Since my discovery of this tank, its has led to me actually wanting to see it in Arma 3 and I thought Id share the progress, I will have a working version in a few day's and I will want to test it, so tell me if your interested.

  16. Hello, im currently trying to make a tank with four tracks. I can't find any tutorial how to get this working and when looking at the "Arma 3 Tanks Config Guidelines" it says that the all left wheels have to be in one line, and right wheels have to be in one line as well (for physx wheels), which i currently don't have. Is it possible to get a tank with 4 tracks working (and with them not being in line) or can't I make a tank with more than two tracks? View from the front and side. View from the top where one can clearly see that the tracks are not in line.
  17. M2 Slammer Firepower Upgrade Project Current version: v6.1 Hello, I have created a little config mod with adds a new tanks based on the M2A4 Slammer tank for BLUFOR. It's my first mod like that so not everything works perfectly, so if you have any suggestions how to fix, or improve, certain elements, feel free to weight in. It was done mostly to figure out how to properly edit the config files. THIS MOD DOES NOT CONTAIN NEW MODELS (sadly) [FLUFF] NATO found the existing M2A1 firepower to be lacking. To fix this issue the "Firepower Upgrade Conversion Kit" has been developed for the M2A4 Slammer with was already upgraded with the TUSK (although M2A4 only had 105mm main gun). Along with the improved armor of the M2A4 variant, the additional firepower of the M2A6 is something to be respected. It can still carry troops as well, making it a unique jack-of-all-trades armored fighting vehicle. However, recent high intensity conflicts have shown that a highly trained and motivated enemy, as opposed to usual goat pushers NATO likes to stomp on, can withstand suppression from .50cal MG's. To rectify this, two further modifications to the M2 Slammer has been designed, based on the successful M2A6 Firepower Upgrade; the M2A7 and M2A8. For both, the gunner's 12.7mm coaxial machine gun has been replaced with 20mm autocannon, with has much bigger shock & terror impact on the infantry. The "Designated Infantry Combat Killer" variant, the M2A7, sees commander with 20mm Grenade Machine Gun instead of usual .50cal. The 20mm GMG have been proven useful in dealing with the infantry in cover. The M2A8 is a slight variation of the M2A7. Not happy with decreasing the long range engagement capabilities of the commander's weapon system in M2A7, the NATO engineers came up with the idea of mounting and "Advanced Suppression System", in a form of an 20mm autocannon, for commander's use. While the cannon lacks some of the splash damage 20mm grenades had, it allows for a long range engagements, retains most of the shock value, and can serve as an anti-air weapon. [/FLUFF] Features 4 new Slammer variants: M2A6, M2A7, M2A8 and M2A9 The main features of M2A6 Slammer Firepower Upgrade:new standalone tank for BLUFOR (just for compatibility's sake), the M2A6 improved armor of the M2A4 variant M2A6 can still carry troops enhanced optics for both, commander and the gunner. 2 new extra zoom levels and the commander gets an additional ultra wide default zoom (old one is still included) FLIR modes changed to black and white 120mm main gun ability for main gun and gunner's MG to lock onto ground targets (MG can lock onto air targets as well) with impact point calculation and automatic range and leading correction for moving targets 12.7mm coaxial machine gun for the gunner (Ma Deuce still got it) with 3x500rnd magazine with ability to lock onto air and ground target, impact point calculation and automatic leading for moving targets commander's MG now has impact point calculation ability to launch guided anti-tank and anti-air missiles, in both wire guided as well as fire-and-forget modes commander has a fully functional laser designator available for designating targets for other M2A6's, aircraft and such commander can fire 82mm mortar rounds, 8 shells in total AI gunner, once locked onto laser designated target, keeps following it allowing for guiding really tricky shots as a commander the M2A6 AI crew is aware of laser designated targets and will engage them, meaning UAV or infantry designation for the M2A6 is possible improved the engine power so the tank is more nippy and feels better to drive The main features of M2A7 Slammer Firepower Upgrade Cannons Infantry Terrorizer:further firepower enhancement of the M2A6 all of the advanced M2A6 features (laser designator, CCIP, 82mm mortar, etc.) 12.7mm coaxial MG has been replaced with a 20mm autocannon commander's MG has been replaced with 20mm Grenade Machine Gun The main features of M2A8 Slammer Firepower Upgrade Cannons Advanced Suppression:further firepower enhancement of the M2A6 all of the advanced M2A6 features (laser designator, CCIP, 82mm mortar, etc.) 12.7mm coaxial MG for both commander and the gunner have been replaced with a 20mm autocannons The main features of M2A9 Slammer Firepower Upgrade 140:further firepower enhancement of the M2A8 most of the advanced M2A9 features (laser designator, CCIP, etc.) commander loses his mortar no passenger capacity in exchange for more ammo new 140mm main gun with ammo: APFSDS, HE and FAE. The new gun can still fire missiles new 140mm main gun has a 4 shots autoloader with 5.5s delay between each shot and 20s magazine reload time new 140mm ammo: a thermobaric rounds (140mm FAE). They have pretty low damage, but they have huge splash radius less nippy then the other variants due to added weight of the bigger gun and ammunition (it just doesn't get the improved engine other variants got, it behaves like vanilla M2A4) Classnames B_MBT_01_FU_F - M2A6 classname B_MBT_01_FUC_IT_F - M2A7 classname B_MBT_01_FUC_AS_F - M2A8 classname cannon_120mmFU - new gun classname cannon_140mmFU - new 140mm gun classname mortar_82mmFU - commander's mortar classname HMG_127_FU_Hull - gunner's machine gun classname HMG_127_FU_Commander - commander's machine gun classname 20mm_cannon_FU_Hull - M2A7 & M2A8 gunner's autocannon classname GMG_20mm_FU_Commander - M2A7 commander's grenade machine gun classname 20mm_cannon_FU_Commander - M2A8 commander's autocannon classname ultra_Wide - new, additional, minimal zoom level for commander extra_zoom1 - extra zoom classname extra_zoom2 - new additional maximum zoom classname Sh_140mm_APFSDS - 140mm APFSDS shell classname Sh_140mm_HE - 140mm HE shell classname Sh_140mm_HET - 140mm FAE (thermobaric) shell classname 4Rnd_140mm_HE_shells - 4 round magazine of the 140mm HE shells classname 4Rnd_140mm_APFSDS_shells - 4 round magazine of the 140mm APFSDS shells classname 4Rnd_140mm_HET_shells - 4 round magazine of the 140mm FAE shells classname Known Issues 1. I have created a new gun based on vanilla 120mm, the classname is "cannon_120mmFU", its rather important as some script might require the gun classname to function properly (smart tanks for example). Also the model of the M2A4 is unchanged, meaning the gun still has 105 model, but it's not really all that noticeable. 2. For some reason the commander's weapons only get lead indicator when target is locked in by the gunner and for that target only. I think it's some engine limitation. 3. The AI likes to fire AT missiles first, so M2A6 only gets 2 AT missiles 4. Sorry, but this one is rather janky. I couldn't get the artillery computer working for the commander, it only worked for gunner and he didn't have the mortar available to him. You will need to eyeball it when firing. Also due to how turrets and such work, the mortar shell is fired from the commander's MG. 5. It's pretty random what weapon AI will use to fire at the laser marker, they like to fire AT at it. Also, they do not always spot the marker, so moving it around their field of view might get their attention. 6. With the new autocannons AI REALLY likes them for some reason, so far it may fire them at targets like APC's and such. If anyone knows how to limit that: drop an info. 7. The new CCIP has some issues with ACE, if you use the ACE FCS to range the target the CCIP will NOT be corrected for new range. This more of ACE issue with Arma 3 then with my mod, I'm sure it wil be fixed someday. Changelog v6.1 - current version * automatic leading and rage correction for the gunner returns * 140mm gun changed to be more like a World of Tanks autoloader: 4 shots in the magazine, 5.5s delay between shots, 20s magazine reload * lowered pitch on the 140mm firing sound to make it sound more powerful * added muzzle flash to 140mm (just artillery firing effect didn't have that for some reason) * added magazine reload sounds to 140mm * nerfed splash damage of the 140mm FAE (thermobaric) round, from 50m to 30m * changed ammo composition for the A9 with 140mm, now it has 4 round magazines with overall ammo count same as before, more or less * AT missile magazine to be bigger v6 * new variant the M2A9 with a new 140mm main gun. The new gun is bigger so commander lost his mortar in this variant and the passenger compartment was converted into ammo storage. The added weight makes the M2A9 slower then the other variants (it just doesn't get the improved engine other variants got, it behaves like vanilla M2A4). It still gets the 20mm autocannons as secondary guns * new 140mm gun gets new ammo as well with better stats then 120mm shells * new 140mm FAE shell. This thermobaric round has a low damage, but huge splash radius, ideal for taking out large groups of infantry * improved the engine on the M2A6, M2A7 and the M2A8. The tanks feels a bit more nippy especially on slight inclines. * lowered artillery charge of the commander's mortar to 30%. 50% made it shoot too far and it was hard to lob shells over close obstacles * removed the automatic leading correction for gunner. I discovered it could mess with your aim, the new lead indicator is shown instead, same as with commander v5 * new additional zoom levels for commander and the gunner. The commander also gets a new extra wide zoom level * FLIR modes for commander and the gunner changed to black and white * commander's mortar: reload time increased to 6 seconds (from 1.8), artillery charge dropped to 50% (from 70%) * 20mm cannons got another slight buff to RoF (still slower then 20mm GMG) * reduced magazine number for 20mm cannons and 20mm GMG, removed 1 magazine each v4.3 * fixed an issue in with commander's weapon systems were automatically corrected for targets aimed by the gunner. Now commander only gets target lead indicator, so he can fire at other targets without aim being messed up. v4.2 * fixed some of the 82 mortar issues: removed 2 firing modes so you only have 70% artillery charge, now you only need to press button once to change from mortar. Removed firing effect from the main gun * fixed AI sounds for 20mm cannons, now they are same as player's * 20mm cannons got a tiny RoF buff * decreased the amount of ammo for v4.1 * fixed the AI rate of fire and sounds for autocannons, hopefully without braking it in other ways v4 * two new variants for the Slammer, M2A7 and M2A8. Both now sport 20mm coaxial canon. The M2A7 is the infantry killer variant with 20mm GMG for the commander. The M2A8 has 20mm cannon for commander instead v3 * M2A6 now has it's own custom version of the .50's for both commander and the gunner. Both sport impact point prediction and gunner's MG can track air targets as well as automatically give lead to locked moving target. Those are custom in order to not create any possible compatibility issues * cleaned up config a bit v2 - fixed ballistic computer prediction, for now main gun can only lock onto ground targets, AA missiles work as they did v1 - initial release Download (Mediafire) Armaholic mirror Play withSIX mirror
  18. SOLVED: Got it working with this config: http://pastebin.com/B4i1TfjA Hi, I'm trying to create an upgunned version of the Slammer BLUFOR tank, while I was able to get it working through editing ACE, I cannot do so with a standalone version. When I try this config the changes to the weapons simply do not take effect. I'm running only this mod for testing.
  19. Ok, so I have this tank that works fine in Arma 2, and I'm working to get it working as it should in Arma 3. I understand that for a vehicle to have engine sounds, it must have a physX simulation. So in the config, I (to my knowledge) changed the simulation and added the physx properties as they should be. In-game, my troubles are that the vehicle is stuck in the ground, and while the tracks spin, I cannot move anywhere with it. I believe it has to do with it being physx simulation. Originally there was no physx simulation until I realized I need physx simulation for engine sounds to work. Here are two screenshots of what it looks like, if anyone has ideas, please give them to me. I will provide more info upon request. Geometry Phys LOD - It is the same as the Geometry LOD, save that this one has no properties. What it looks like in game - as you can see, it sinks into the ground a few inches, you should be able to see the tracks touch the ground.
  20. Hello guuuys, I have a question. Especially with the most recent AI overhauls, AI tends to like to move around a lot. This is problematic, especially when making defensive missions where the AI are placed in prepared, covered positions. Instead of remaining in them and using the meticulously planned ambush position to best effect, they instead leave the position and start racing around (and are shot up much more quickly as a result). Waypoint type does not seem to matter, they leave the position once they spot an enemy no matter what. The type of vehicle also does not matter. Independent cover selection by the AI is extremely bad for vehicles in defense, so I am looking for a workaround for this. Any Ideas? I have thought about using disableAI, but that is something I'd rather not use because once taking hits, I want the AI to move. As waypoints don't seem to work, and I do not know how to script, I am out of Ideas myself. Any help is appreciated. Cheers Instagoat
  21. Hello, maybe someone know? How to link the camera to the turret of tank? And when turret rotates, camera also rotates. Like this:
  22. Hey guys, since a unit engage the enemy when this one has been spotted, I've used [unit] disableAI "MOVE" in order to block the unit on its position where I placed it. After that I would like to know a command to put in a trigger or a waypoint so that the unit can move to the next waypoint after a trigger is activated. What's the command (if any)? thanks (ps I've found another old thread about my problem but I didn't understand lol)
