Altis Exploration v6

Sponsored by 82nd AB Realism Unit[]. Come check us out!

Welcome to Altis!

This "mission" has been worked on since Altis came out.

This is my first real "scripting" attempt in Arma, though I have other programming experience.

In this mission, you (and max. 31 of your friends (16 BLUFOR, 16 OPFOR)) spawn at the main airport on Altis.
You can then spawn ANY vehicle currently in the game. This includes boats, cars, trucks, plane(s), tanks, helicopters, yeah, literally everything.

Any vehicle you spawn spawns 10 meters directly infront of you, with it's front side facing the same direction as you are looking. Watch out when looking at another vehicle or sloped terrain. It might spawn inside of the obstacle and explode.

  • Spawn ANY vehicle in the game! (Includes mods/custom vehicles.)
  • Spawn in objects ANY object! (new in v5v6)
  • Change your loadout anywhere, any time! (Using VAS[])
  • Spawn in AI anywhere on the map with a single click! (Rifle squad, AA unit, AT unit, Ifrit HMG (Machine gun mounted armored car), T-100 Varsuk (Tank), ZBU-39 Tigris (AA))
  • Teleport anywhere on the map with a single click!
  • Change ambient settings on the fly! (Time of day, overcast & fog)
  • Damage, repair, rearm and teleport any vehicle you enter!
  • High FPS maintaining! (Any vehicle that gets spawned in, when it blows up, it's burning wreck (an absolute FPS killer) gets deleted within 30 seconds. Any vehicle that has been unoccupied for at least 2 minutes, will be automatically deleted.) (Also, no guarantees when you spawn in a LOT of AI...)
  • Ammo box at spawn area with every single weapon/gear and clothing items in it. Save/load outfits. (Thanks to the VAS[] system!)
  • SUPPORT FOR ACRE! If ACRE is enabled on the server, all the ACRE radios will be added into the inventory of the ammo boxes at the spawn.

I have put quite a few hours into scripting this. If you like this mission, buy me a beer[]!

-- NOTES --

Overcast setting: Because the game does overcast "easing", as in, you select 100% overcast, and in 1 hour, it'll build up, you need to skip the time by at least 1 hour in order for the overcast to "change" into what you selected. To do this, go into the Ambient Menu -> Time -> Skip 1 h

Time setting: Because of the way that Arma handles time of day across client/server, you might have to select one of the specific times when a friend joins. Because it might be 1 AM for you, but 12 PM for the player who joins. Still trying to find a fix for this.

Object spawning/picking up: Because of some problem with Arma 3, which makes some action menus show up like 1 minute after they've been added dynamically, you may need to wait a minute before "Pick Up" or "Duplicate" shows up on objects.

Have fun!

P.S. - Feel free to use the scripts in this for your own scenario, as long as you link back to this item on the Steam Workshop ;) Also, if you want to use the VAS/TAW scripts, use the links above instead. That guarantees you have the newest version, and doesn't make me a distributer.

@SpartanH347☭[FR]☭ if I still had it, sure :P I think you can extract it from the download though.

I used your sandbow a long time ago 3-4 years you know xD But now I have played Arma 3 for 4.000 hours so ... I play with around 20 mods, and the sandbox is not complete, in NMD you can have a Zeus, three sides, disable fatigue and many more thing, so if you are not going to update Altis Exploration, use NMD Sandbox, it's a new sandbow version on Altis, Malden, Tanoa and Stratis

@SSS - Amir I'd sure as hell hope so. This is something I threw together in 2013 as one of the first to do this kind of thing :P

Download NMD, it's better

@Tom I am not actively working on this map, but I am pretty sure the menus automatically list ALL objects and vehicles. So it should be in there, I think. Maybe it's an object, but you're looking though vehicles?

it may be 2.5 years old, but it's still a good map, and it still works for the most part. Also CAS Slammer is amazing
