Commands that should possibly be removed because of non-functionality
New, WishlistPublic

Description

Below is the list of some commands that IMO can be removes safely from Arma 3. They do nothing but add to clutter and confusion.

gearIDCAmmoCount
gearSlotAmmoCount
gearSlotData

All 3 "getter" commands are non functional in Arma 3, whats more the 3 corresponding "setter" commands have been removed from Arma 3 for good, just recently, so this is not clear why leave these 3.

benchmark

Obsolete and returns 2000 no matter what.

findCover

not event implemented

showWarrant
shownWarrant

both obsolete for ages, just add to clutter and confusion

AISFinishHeal

Couldn't make it work. It supposed to work with "HandleHeal" EH for some sort of override, but it looks like "HandleHeal" override is also broken. Also recent removal of setAIS makes me think this is just another useless leftover from glorious days.

setPosASL2

does nothing, probably VBS command and is disabled in Arma 3, yet present in supportInfo

removed playGesture and switchGesture from the list as those are supposed to be functional and require gestures from gesture config, which are none in A3

Added setPosASL2 to the list

setMimic

Not functional, sometimes resets unit's random head movement and that's it.

Fully functional command that has been removed in latest dev. Not what I had in mind when I made this ticket...

Upvoted, obsolete commands should be removed, to reduce confusion among players, especially those, who are new to Arma 3 scripting.

@SilentSpike shownGPS works as intended, I have updated BIKI description because it was too confusing

removed inGameUIsetEventHandler as it has been discovered working, info on biki.

removed camSetDir as there maybe a chance to fix it
