Any number of factions and sides(feature, ability to create on fly with script)
Reviewed, WishlistPublic

Description

Hello.

it's necessary to have more than 4 factions. What if i want to build MPMission where should be many groups with individual characteristics and change relations between them!?

4 fixed factions is bad heritage of OFP-Arma 2. Old Armas haven't improved uniform\item system like arma 3 and faction tied with uniforms. Now we not needed fixed factions. We can equip any faction with any stuff and setup who is enemy.

It would much greater if we haven't any fixed fatrions and just group any numbers of units in selfmade faction with setup relations with each other factions in array.

I don't speak about any number of player factions...

Example:

_myNewFaction = createFaction "blahblahblah";
_myNewFactionHQ = createCanter _myNewFaction;
_myNewFactonGrp = createGroup _myNewFaction;

side _myNewFactionGrp; return blahblahblah

PS: also need ability to create SIDES on fly. I don't understand why someone reject this ticket and why...
Thanks.

....... just add extra units with addons.....

For my MPMissions i should make addon? Are you kidding?!

This issue makes no sense.

Why would you need more than 4 factions fighting each other at once? At that point the mission is just going to be a chore. Downvoted.

while i agree with the ticket now that you could explain the nonsense of it, and i agree there should be a choice to add more independients or extra enemy factions, i think 4 factions its more than enough.

Why game should be limited to factions number?! While we have dynamic cloth and uniform, we can make tons of different factions. It will give more flexibility to mission making.

I think this issue is about sides (BLUFOR, OPFOR, etc) not factions (NATO, CSAT, etc). Arma only supports 3 combat sides, with any number of factions per side.

Ideally it should support arbitrary number of sides.

Ceeeb, how you can add new faction in your mission? Using CONFIG? It's boring and not handy.
Better to create factions on fly.
I think, in addition to fractions, should be able to make any number of SIDES!

I agree with the topic, I would like to do or play a MP mission with CSAT, NATO, AAF, and FIA all against each other.
