[UCM] Utilities Construction Mod

Description
The Utilities Construction Mod (aka UCM) allows to quickly add construction areas in your missions for pipelines, railways, electric lines, and such.

Being a fan of milsim, the main reason I developed this mod was to give an objective purpose for staying in specific areas, especially for persistent servers. Having a lot of small tasks such as the ones that ALiVE gives you it's really great, but having (for instance) a pipeline to build qualifies the presence and gives specific time limits for a faction to be in an area.

Please note that this mod is still in early beta. Some changes and bugs are to be expected. 

Sample mission
A sample mission can be downloaded from here:
https://github.com/ostinelli/SCAR_UCM/raw/master/resources/ucm_demo.Altis.zip

ACE
UCM does not need ACE to run, but if enabled the Interaction and Cargo functionalities will the the ones of ACE, otherwise they will default to enhanced vanilla ones.

Persistence
UCM has its own Persistence Module that allows you to save UCM data.

ALiVE
UCM is integrated with ALiVE, with some caveats. Refer to Github for notes.

Why
If you are the "Rooty tooty point and shooty" type of person, this mod may not be for you. It will not give you additional things to shoot at; rather, creative usage can offer you a purpose for simulating real life scenarios in war areas.

Thank you
Thanks to all alpha and beta testers, in particular:

Anyone know if this mod still works? I tried setting it up, but the materials delivered weren't ace interactable, so I couldn't move them.

Could you use this to build wells or schools in a mission, or is it mainly for lengthy things like pipes and railroads?

Second question for you; based on my testing, the only materials that are viewed as valid are ones that are delivered by helo, prepositioned materials are not seen as valid for construction purposes. Is there any way to make it so that prepositioned materials are used by the mod?

_SCAR, is there any way to change the appearance of the workers/foreman? I'm wanting to construct a mission where the PCs are defending a NPC engineer unit while they build a bridge. It would look significantly better if said unit wasn't in high visibility jumpsuits and vests.

all this mod needs is an "Engineer" to act as the woker's leader. That way you don't need to ask all your workers to get in the vehicle and to get out, one by one. Engineer could use the white helmet and workers a yellow helmet so it is easy to recognize.

@PAGEYxBREA it would be the same. ACE interactions are substituted with vanilla ones, that is all.

can you do a tutorial for non ace?
