SaMatra added a comment to T79689: magazineTurretAmmo and setMagazineTurretAmmo do not function as expected if there are multiple magazines of the same type.

nils for out of bounds _index might not be really needed as there is

vehicle magazinesTurret [turretPath, includeEmpty]

to get empty magazines so you can find the count yourself.

SaMatra added a comment to T79689: magazineTurretAmmo and setMagazineTurretAmmo do not function as expected if there are multiple magazines of the same type.

Maybe its time to finally fix this command. Lets be honest, 99% of usages of this command are to get currently loaded magazine. Who needs *random* magazine ammo count? Lets make this command prioritize loaded magazines.

What I propose after more tests:

Aug 28 2022, 12:49 PM · Arma 3
SaMatra added a comment to T167317: A command to return vehicle turret laser targets.

So in total:

  1. You can have LDs working in seats without any units in them as long as there is unit somewhere in the vehicle (and turret is local to them maybe?)
  2. You can have LTs from both turret LD and personal LD, but turret LD will delete after a bit.

SaMatra added a comment to T167317: A command to return vehicle turret laser targets.

This is what I thought, that only current target matters therefore whatever unit tracking now is what should be returned, for simplicity and consistency, no?

Aug 28 2022, 12:42 PM · Arma 3
SaMatra added a comment to T167317: A command to return vehicle turret laser targets.

So when player is tuned out and using personal LD it would return that target and if turned in and using vehicle LD it would return that target, sounds consistent?

SaMatra added a comment to T167317: A command to return vehicle turret laser targets.

Just tested that, it is indeed a case, you can have both laser designator on a turret, then turn out and use your own laser designator, both laser targets will exist at the same time and only one will be accessible after proposed changes to the command.

SaMatra added a comment to T167317: A command to return vehicle turret laser targets.

If we are to change original command behavior, then I would also make laserTarget iterate through turrets to find first laser target, so you can safely execute it on Strider and return laser target from commander.

SaMatra added a comment to T167317: A command to return vehicle turret laser targets.

What about querying a particular unit in the vehicle, does it work for different gunners with laser targeting devices in the same vehicle?

No it doesn't, laserTarget always returns null when executed on a unit that's on in turret with enabled laser designator.

SaMatra added a comment to T150204: Add command to get machine time and date.

Would be great if systemTime accepted time offset argument so we can easily display server time. The idea is following: Get how much your time is offset from the server and feed the number of hours as arguments into the command. Yes, you can calculate all that with SQF, but when you need to display timer constantly, this eats a bit of CPU time when it could be handled by the engine very efficiently.

<Array> = systemTime <Number>

SaMatra added a comment to T163751: Custom profile namespaces.

Are new commands isMissionProfileNamespaceLoaded, missionProfileNamespace and saveMissionProfileNamespace result of this ticket? If so, how are they connected to the mission itself? Through the mission filename? If so, then it won't fit for our purposes because we use different mission filenames for different communities (to avoid mission re-download when switching servers) like:
KingOfTheHill_by_Sa-Matra_for_CODE4.Altis.pbo
KingOfTheHill_by_Sa-Matra_for_ARMASU.Altis.pbo
but we need a namespace accessible between these different mission files but within our mission's "universe".

During one of the tests we had 100k desync\desync chain just by respawning simultaneously. Some helicopters\vehicles were destroyed about 5 minutes prior to it though. Is this situation related to helicopterUpdate too? Unfortunately we did not manage to reproduce it later but desync was clearly happening right after we all died. What is interesting is that 5 of us died at the same time sometimes 1 body sank underground, sometimes 2 bodies, sometimes none, it definitely looked like something is wrong with remains collector.

SaMatra added a comment to T78632: Using getPos and then setPos (getPosASL and setPosASL) on object moves it..

getPosWorld is very close to getPosASL except it returns actual object Z coordinate instead of one calculated from transformation of object's placing point. Same goes for setPosWorld, it directly sets object coordinate without regard to placing point.

By object specific I meant that result of getPosASL is object specific because placing point differs between objects and there would be no way to translate world coordinate to asl coordinate without having the object itself and its placing point in model world.

May 10 2016, 8:56 AM · Arma 3
SaMatra added a comment to T78632: Using getPos and then setPos (getPosASL and setPosASL) on object moves it..

AgentRev, ASLtoATL and ATLtoASL commands simply add or substract distance from ground level to water level so you can use same commands for world coordinates.

Also there is no way to make world coordinate into ASL coordinate (or vise-versa) because ASL is object-specific and you will need to know object's bounding center and target orientation (vector dir and up) to calculate Z returned by ASL command.

SaMatra added a comment to T77805: "push" command is needed for working with arrays in scheduled environment [PICTURE].

I absolutely agree with Killzone_Kid about this, performance of such basic operations is extremely important especially in code that is being run each frame. A practical example for this is complex icons over player, without using drawIcon3d when you need to have several UI elements above each unit, such task involves tens and tens of array operations each frame, using fastest command possible matters A LOT when trying to maintain good FPS, especially in multiplayer where FPS is usually much lower.
