Task Generation - Limit Task Types

  1. last year

    Hello,

    I notice that with the Combat Controller for air units module you can edit the list of tasks to determine which types of tasks are assigned to the pilots. However, is there a way to change this for the normal task generation? If I'm playing as a squad of recon infantry, I don't want to be assigned tasks for transporting soldiers in a truck or helo. I want to instead limit it to say search & rescue, hostage rescue, attacking enemies, etc.

    I haven't been able to find any module that has this option available to it though, and I'd rather not manually assign tasks to myself via the tablet.

  2. You can modify your staticdata.sqf in order to blacklist certain tasks.

    ALiVE_autoGeneratedTasks = [
    "MilAssault",
    "MilDefence",
    "CivAssault",
    "Assassination",
    "TransportInsertion",
    "DestroyVehicles",
    "DestroyInfantry",
    "SabotageBuilding",
    "InsurgencyPatrol",
    "InsurgencyDestroyAssets",
    "Rescue",
    "CSAR"];

    I believe that is current task list. Just delete or comment out what you don't want.

    There's some new tasks in dev too ;)

    ALIVE_autoGeneratedTasks = ["MilAssault","MilDefence","CivAssault","Assassination","TransportInsertion","DestroyVehicles","DestroyInfantry","SabotageBuilding","InsurgencyPatrol","InsurgencyDestroyAssets","Rescue","CSAR","CAS","DestroyBuilding","OCA"];

    The latest 3 are aimed at flyboys.

  6. Nice, I do enjoy occasionally flying on the ALiVE map. One thing I notice though, I often am going too fast or too high for the game to spawn the actual entities in where the AI should be. So I'll fly toward an enemy location, but by the time I've passed and are flying away, still no units have spawned in. Is there some way to correct this outside of setting a crazy distance for spawning units? I don't want to do that and bog the system down.

  8. Not really... you can lower the spawn time for each group (SmoothSpawn setting in VAI module) but that will affect performance. Try fiddling with that setting and the spawn distance setting to see if you can get something workable.

  9. Thanks for your reply SavageCDN will do

    A bit of a funky workaround is to use the Combat Support module to send a UAV to the area. UAV's will spawn profiles, so you can bomb them to smithereens.

  11. That's a really good idea. I hadn't thought of doing something like that.

    You can up the spawn radius for aircraft to 4km and that usually works fine.

    Yes. But for full instructions on how to blacklist specific tasks from showing up when auto tasks are turned on in the C2ISTAR module, read this at the bottom of the page:
