Mission Templates

    just burned through ~3 hours making Insurgency ALiVE Stratis.

  3. @SpyderBlack723 Thanks for the templates, they got me started with spinning up ALiVE. Right now I forked your Landlord scenario, added ACE and have the server running ASR_AI. I've also had the non-moving troops issue, seems to occur in two circumstances:

    • Pickup troop tasks AI stand in formation, but never acknowledge that I've landed/pulled up near them.
    • QCB troops seem to never notice me. I'm able to enter through a back door, shoot one, and have the partner continue to stare into space. If I cross their LOS in their fixed position, they start shooting; but otherwise never seem to look around or notice us. Things I tried to fix include: toggling the QCB module from "JIP Players" to "Server", and including the same AI mod on the client.

    If anyone knows the source of the "stuck" AI or why it seems to occur on QCB spawned AI 100% of the time; please let me know where to dig :)

    I was playing with CQB last night (heavily modded game, RHS, AIA_TP, ASR_AI etc) and they were playing very nicely. I suggest trying on a vanilla game with just CBA and ALiVE running to see if you get the same issues.

    QCB troops seem to never notice me. I'm able to enter through a back door, shoot one, and have the partner continue to stare into space. If I cross their LOS in their fixed position, they start shooting; but otherwise never seem to look around or notice us.

    This was supposed to be fixed, I am not sure if it has actually gotten into a public release yet though. I'll test today at some point. Friz said his worked fine so maybe it did.

    I have encountered the stuck AI but I am not sure what causes it as sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. I haven't seen it for a few weeks so I kinda forgot about it. Maybe a mod conflict of some sorts as I never play full on missions without a modpack. I would test with a vanilla game and see if you can repro it that way.

  6. The game is hosted on a dedicated (linux) server currently, by default the QCB was aimed at JIP clients. Do you guys think I'd have better luck with leaving the AI on the server, or connecting a HC to it? The rest of the AI behaves like good ASR_AI, throwing smoke, taking cover, being suppressed, etc.

    @Friznit I'm running a subset of that modlist += ACE. Did you need to add any troop classes or similar to get ASR_AI to work for your QCB?

    I'll fork again and remove the ACE components, enable QCB again, and load with only ALiVE+CBA; then go from there.

    I hope whether you like it.

  8. Thank you so much for these templates, I have spent hundreds of hours trying to master mission making with Alive and just one of your missions has shown me more than I learned over all that time. These missions are so good. Love the insurgency one. Keep up the good work man!

    Thanks Raditz5, this is the first time I've really put myself (or my work) out there so receiving good feedback is very pleasing. I'm glad it has helped you.

  10. Well I'll add to it, the templates are great, they really help a lot with putting together missions for the first time with ALiVE. I know I actually learned a bit from them all after loading them up, I had some really wrong ideas of how some things hung together with linking.

    I'm editing the Altis one right now to try out with friends next week some time with AGM, CUP, ASR_AI and Blastcore.

    Just playing it on my own I'm seeing things that are just amazing and it's heaps of fun.

  11. Would it be possible for the ALiVE team to create a thread/tutorial with some common scripts, etc. that we can use in missions.

    Personally, I'm not a programmer, coder and I have only a very basic understanding of scripting. I would LOVE if someone could put together some of the most common "wish list" scripts that folks can use in game.

    For example...if you want to do a hostage rescue of multiple hostages use "abc" in your init line.

    I saw a script in the "ALiVE Air Assault", for example, with the Rangefinder single unit that said something like "Add action join assault, etc." I'd like to know exactly what that does.

    Things like hostage rescue, assassinations, arming POWs, etc....I think that would be an awesome addition.

    Just throwing out suggestions.

    That's good stuff. I will say that there are still things in there that I'm not sure exactly how it functions.

    For example, "the ability to store custom variables"....in layman's terms...what does that mean to me when I'm building a mission?

  14. Edited 8 years ago by SpyderBlack723

    If I'm understanding it correctly, you could use it to store values and variables for use in the next session instead of having them be reset. So, I'm making a PMC mission where you can have access to a global bank account which would revolve around a variable such as bankAccount. Using a CBA delayed per-frame handler you could do ["money", bankAccount] call ALiVE_fnc_setData, and then pull bankAccount = ["money"] call ALiVE_fnc_getData when I need to have that information back after starting up the mission a 2nd time. Just a guess at this point but it seems that would be the way it works.

    Basically yes, you can store whatever you want. R3F cash balance for the creation factory, for example.

    Actually found a nifty way to use this in a recent mission. I used an array to keep track of the locations of specific objects that were created through scripts (addActions to be specific). I then pulled that information up upon mission restart and used it to place new objects in the same location as a method to "persist".

    _object1 = [getPosATL object1, getDir object1];
    _objects pushBack _object1;
    _objects = [_object1, _object2, _object 3];
    ["Objects", _objects] call ALiVE_fnc_setData

    After restarting mission..

    _retrievedObjects = ["Objects"] call ALiVE_fnc_getData;
    
    {
    _objectLoc = _x select 0;
    _objectDir = _x select 1;
    
    _object = "object_classname" createVehicle [0,0,0];
    _object setDir _objectDir;
    _object setPosATL _objectLoc;
    
    sleep 1;
    
    } forEach _retrievedObjects;

    Not the exact code but you get the point. This is where someone comes along and tells me there was a much easier way and I feel bad.

    I've been trying to get a decent 3-way insurgency mission put together for what seems like forever. I finally succeeded after switching to different mods.

    Takistan Warfare
    This mission requires:
    All in Arma Terrain Pack
    RHS USAF
    RHS AFRF
    ACE 3
    CBA
    CUP Weapons
    Iraqi Syrian Conflict

  18. Nice, what factions did you utilize for each side?

  19. @SpyderBlack723 I've used rhs_faction_usarmy_d, rhs_faction_vdv, and ISC_IS_I.

    Currently it's set where the player must be a member of rhs_faction_usarmy_d.

  20. Hi guys and hi Spyder, I appreciate the thread. I'm super new to this stuff but I think (fingers crossed) I successfully set up my dedicated server on my PC using TADST. What I'd like to do is take one of these missions and get it all set up with War Room so I can save and resume my progress (I plan on playing alone but hopefully with AI teammates).

    Are any of these missions pre-baked in a way for me to do this without having to learn the modules and editor? I plan on it eventually but right now I kind of just want to dive right in and learn how to play.

  21. Short on time atm, but they should work as is with no needed input from you to play.
