player can't reconnect to UAV after reconnecting to server
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I attached an archive with a mission that lets you see for yourself. You can also connect to ToK server (PvP one) and check the mission "test drone 3" on Stratis. {F23000}


Legacy ID
UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start the mission on a dedicated server with persistent mode activated
  1. Go near the static autonomous MG and check that you can connect to it
  1. Disconnect from mission (go back to lobby) and reconnect back
  1. Disassemble and reassemble the static autonomous MG
  1. You will notice you no longer have the 'Connect terminal to UAV' action

This is because the AI inside the AMG is no longer there after you reassembled the AMG.

Additional Information

Using createVehicleCrew command on the AMG lets you reconnect to the AMG but if you take control of the turret and shoot once the screen freezes and you can no longer release the UAV connection (you can respawn to fix the situation).

Something similar happens with the Darter UAV after it is reassembled (when I tested it the Darter disappeared instantly after reassembly and appeared somewhere up in the sky).

Should be fixed in current dev branch version. Could you please check it and let me know? Thanks!

I installed the ArmA 3 dedicated server but I can't connect to it from a DEV version. I ran the steamcmd with 233780 -beta development parameters to set the dedicated server in dev mode but it didn't work.
We will see if it is fixed in stable version.

I couldn't reproduce this issue so this looks fixed. You may close the ticket.
