- Please keep in mind, this is very , very "simple" mission , and very simple showcasing of the mod's assets.
- It ONLY showcases a "survival" element , that isn't based on DayZ mod code/scripting.
- You will need "windows keys" left and right to access the RSP menus. If you do not have the "windows keys" ( located near the ctrl/alt keys) , you will need to rebind the proper keys.
I don't know how to do that, I have the windows keys , but the documentation in in RSP mod on key codes and how to do it.
( Or if you have ACE2 enabled it uses the ACE menu keys instead.)
The Mission here is on Utes, I just picked a small map everyone had.
At first I started out trying to use triggers and info signs to describe what to do , and how. But, ... grrr Arma2. The trigger info text started bugging out ... I guess there's a limit on how many arma2 will properly display.
So, I put all important info on the map itself. Go into map screen, you can see notes on the left, and places/locations to go to on the right across the Island.
There are no enemies ... and I did not include any random "loot spawns" in this one, because I wanted to keep it simple , easy to understand , and get it done fast.
Once you find all the things, do everything ... it's quite a boring "mission", and only intended to show how things are done.
Hint- when you cut your wood, carry it to the Camp location.
Hint- some animals give lots of cut meat , you only need 1 or two pieces.
Hint- You can't cook meat , with-out empty cans. Look in the box at the camp.
Hint- get close to the Timbers pile , and blue barrels to use the menu.
Hint- Running makes thirst/hunger go up faster, than if you walk. Other factors also increase/decrease the values , temperature, weather, terrain , and time of day.
Hint do not get "dehydrated" , IV bags I think are bugged/don't work.
If too hungry, or too thirsty, you will pass out. More often as you get closer to 100% , at 100% you will die.
If you want to know how it was done , please feel free to open up the mission and look in the editor, and looking at the scripts .sqf files.
There are only two files packed in the .pbo.
I hereby grant permission to use as you want/desire. I did not make any of the mods/addons, I just figured out how to properly make them work.
I am not one that is "stingy" with anything, feel free to use as desired.
Got it. And it was a tiny one this, lol! Will try it in the near future. If i can build some soft war-missions in my editor with this adding surviving it can be really cool i think. I made one in Takistan with MCC some time ago. Added a weather module giving me "mild sandstorm", picked my troops and "tasks". Was so cool when patrols was passing by my/our hideout for the night, actually a bit tense. The environment with the "sandstorm", very fateful feeling. To bad it only lasting for a few hours without some "must-doings" like eating and drinking etc. If you know you always can "succeed" and don't have to keep anything up, it will be boring pretty soon no matter what.
The next one I do , will add in the MGB construction mod too.
I need to fully test MGB though, and see if glitches are caused by other addons, or if that was a fluke adding it to daiZy made missions.
There are parts in MGB I don't like on it's menu , I'm hoping to be able to change some of that via a config file or something.
That was, like you said , adding more to regular missions , making them more interesting/dynamic.
Adding "survival" , things needed to be maintained -
adding some form of base building/fortification - Could be interesting in many ways. Defending from wandering patrols , protect your assets from wandering "bandits" ... or just being able to design your own "house", have your own "safe spot" to store things and return to later ...
I'd rather use a better construction system, but right now MGB is all I know thats drop in ready. And of course, the option not to use it is always there.
Yes my example/tutorial mission is small/tiny ... it has bare-bones what's needed to experience the RSP system.
It can be opened in the editor, to give insight on what was used. I could have made things a tad more "fancy" by global scripts called from external scripts , but that would leave anyone with-out knowledge of how to do that in the dark. So I kept it as simple as I possibly could; easy to learn, easy to copy/paste ...
I am wondering one thing with RSP though ... if it effects NPCs the same as "players" ...
I've not been able to test this , but it wouldn't do much good if your enemy Ai drop over from thirst/hunger hahahaha!
I don't think it'd effect anyone but "players" , I do think it's effect runs to "playable units" ( like you spawn a group with a leader, and able to "switch" units in your "group").
But I am not 100% certain of that either way.
if it does effect NPCs/AI ... just by chance, I'll have to figure out script code to specifically negate that , only effecting "players"/playable units.
Lol! That should be a bit too much maybe, lol! Arma 2 the babysitting dlc. If there was a way to add that to your followers with a huuuuuuge delay on thirst and hunger. Why not, could be awesome. If you can command your troops to "rearm" at water and food sources. Fine. But not the way we think it would turn out, lol! Resulting in a starvation plague. Pffff?
And no "delete" on dead npcs. Adding 1000 respawn/unlimited AIs. Filling up the map pretty quick, lol! Can't see the ground after a few hours.
Joking around here a little bit. But does not ACE add self awareness on AIs? Or is it ASR AIs? They rearming themselves if there is ammo crates near by?
