An instant alternative to execute entity actions
Feedback, NormalPublic

Description

There are lots of useful actions that can only be performed with action command but it seems that many of them are tied to unit animations which is often very inconvenient. I'd like to request a way to instantly execute these actions.

Actions: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3:_Actions

Suggested syntax for a command:

ENTITY actionNow ARRAY;

Additional Information

One of the uses would be moving backpack from one unit to another with TakeBag action. Right now this action happens only after acting unit does the animation, which takes plenty of time and not always possible if unit is unable to switch to needed animation.

Other possible command names: instantAction, actionNoAnim

Alternatively, introduce non-animated versions of these actions to be used with action command, for example TakeBag -> TakeBagNow

Looks like removing all action "preprocessings" was a bit too much and it breaks some actions. I'll have to go case by case

Should be fixed with the next dev branch update
