Thanks! Actually, Bradon linked it to me in the Discord a few days ago, so I appreciate you following up.
So, I tried out the map Porto, because I just want a small scale invasion scenario and it looks like it's not indexed even though the github claims it is. :\
So, the wiki says to refer to the github for maps that are indexed/supported. But my question is, are the checked off maps on the github meaning that they are actively supported/indexed in the production release version of ALiVE? Or does that just mean somewhere there's an index download floating around for that map?
I've been interested in these maps too, they look pretty cool. Perfect for some large scale armored maneuvers with combined air support. I wish they'd release versions without the buildings so that proper buildings could be placed.
So I understand via wiki: Force Size and Composition Weighting choices will influence the overall force composition. ALiVE will attempt to emulate realistic combined arms battle groups using equipment and vehicles available to that faction. Mission editors can overwrite this by forcing unbalanced groups in the Overrides if they choose (e.g. infantry only).
My question is with regards to it being explained in more detail if possible. When I choose 'Company (100)' from the list. Does that mean that there are 100 profiles on the map? Or is this some other measurement? For example, if I've got a faction like Syndikat or Takistan Militia that has weird groups of like 2 men, 4 men patrols in some cases, do those groups count as much as a 12 man squad?
Also, say I choose 'Light Infantry' for force weighting. Is it going to purely spawn Light Infantry? Or is there some ratio breakdown on what it wants to spawn like 75% Light Infantry, 15% Motorized, 10% Mechanized?
No worries, I just switched over to using Insurgency missions for now. Thanks anyways
Thanks AUTigerGrad, maybe I'm confused on how vCOM works. As of now I've got vCOM subscribed to on the Steam Workshop. If I clone the repository, how would I overwrite the files the vCOM download from Steam applies? Or have I been using it wrong all along?
How exactly do you replace the existing vCOM files with the updated ones from the github? my vcom is packed into a pbo, do i need to replace and repack it all or is there a pbo avail?
