Changes in v2.4b5

    * Added: Mando Air Support Console and Mando Bombs allowing you to:
          o Call for bomb runs using free fall bombs or SADARM attacks.
          o Call for Close Air Support using free fall bombs or SADARM attacks.
          o Call for gunships support (armed choppers by default).
          o Call for airborne assaults with the transport chopper landing or dropping the troops in parachute.
          o Call for infantry reinforcements (which will join the console user) with the transport chopper landing or dropping the troops in parachute.
          o Call for cruise missile attack.
          o Call for cruise missile saturation attack.
          o Call for ammo supplies (dropped in chutes by helicopters).
          o Call for vehicle supply (empty vehicles transported by choppers).
          o Call for Combat Air Patrol to sweep the skies of the support marked area.
          o Call for reconnaissance missions where the reconnaissance info will be transfered to the console map.
          o Call for evacuation choppers.

    * Added: mma_console_addon.Chernarus Air Support Console demo mission.
    * Changed: Mando Turret object moved to a separate addon mando_phalanx.pbo, also included inside @mma folder (this should remove any warnings when loading with Duala map).


The new MMA Air Support Console is highly configurable using many global vars, check here the full list of available options and run included demo mission mma_console_addon.Chernarus which includes many console customizations inside my_console_setup.sqf.

just quick question in support console version - are the gunships unable to attack with guns i.e missles only as they don't seem to attack troops in the demo mission I tested only hard targets.

Demo was mma_console_addon

They can use the gun at will, in this case A2 AI engine decides where and when to use the guns. And yes, A2 gunners rarely use the guns against troops.

Hey man, thanks for the release. I set up a mission on Utes and I'm having a couple of problems. First, the carpet bomb code in the readme isn't working. I remember having the same problem in ArmA1 and someone posted a fixed version of that sample code. Second, when I would call for an ammo drop or reinforcements or anything involving a helicopter bringing something in, it wouldn't come in. It would spawn the aircraft and they would drop their troops or cargo where they spawned, which in this case was way out to sea, lol. Other than that it's the same awesome console as the one for ArmA.

monty67t, try the carpet bombing code in the demo mission, as readme use the MMA readme first (the old mando bombs readme is not valid any more for the A2 version).

In some cases, mostly for choppers comming from S sector to N, A2 AI cannot resolve paths and will not move. Nothing I can do about that (I tried many ways but no way), only fix might come from BIS fixing A2.

I used the example from the online mando missile manual and it worked fine. When I brought the helicopters in from another direction the worked fine. That is a wierd one, but thanks for the information.

I'm still having some trouble with the carpet bomb code. I used this one from the sample mission.

Code: [Select]
// CARPET BOMB CODE //
mando_airsupport_carpetcode =
{
   private["_plane", "_targetpos", "_widx"];
   _plane = _this select 0;
   _targetpos = _this select 1;
   while {(([getPos _plane select 0, getPos _plane select 1, 0] distance _targetpos) > 2000) && (alive _plane)} do
   {
      Sleep 1;
   };

   if (alive _plane) then
   {
      _widx = [_plane, "BombLauncher"] call mando_weaponindex;
      for [{_i=0}, {_i<6}, {_i=_i+1}] do
      {
         _plane action ["useWeapon",_plane,driver _plane, _widx];
         Sleep 0.4;
      };
   };
};


This is the error i get.

Does your plane have "BombLauncher" weapon? If not, change by the corresponding weapon using the bombs.

_widx = [_plane, "BombLauncher"] call mando_weaponindex;

Mando, awesome addon!

This thread seems short for the amount of stuff in the addon..! Where's the questions people have, or is this not the spot?

I'd like to ask, what's all the scripting in "units\attackers"? Like for your ACE example map mma_test_sys_ace_addon.utes, you call on some planes:
Code: [Select]
[_x, 0, ["Air"], 4, 300, 3500, 15, [6, 5, -3], 50, 0, [], false, false, true, true]exec"mando_missiles\units\attackers\mando_aim120_fighter.sqs";
Why? Does this make them more lethal? Shouldn't they be shooting Mando Missiles anyways? And why set this: "this setVariable ["mando_ecm_on", true, true]"?? Doesn't the AI use counter measures anyways, without setting? What do you mean by "enemy MMA AI"? Shouldn't the enemy shoot Mando Missiles anyways?

How come you don't mention setting "mando_nav_info"? I see how you use it, but is there like a map maker document that mentions all the secret cool stuff? I'd like to get the most out of your scripts...  ;)

EDIT: I'm pouring through all the BIS forum posts.

Doolittle, attackers folder has templates of mando_missiles\units\mando_missileattacker.sqf usage. That script replaces any BIS AI missile related usage. If you want to see the "effects", run mma_test_sys_addon.utes demo mission and use the radio to activate MMA AI. And no, BIS units dont use ECM, that ECM affects only mando missiles, if you try to lock on a plane emitting ECM it will take longer to get the lock and the chances the lock gets broken are high. Also if you fire RADAR guided missiles against ECM emitting planes their guidance might become erratic, this is more evident if you fire SARH missiles like the Sparrow where you need to keep the target locked on until impact or miss. If you are the pilot of the plane and your plane has ECM, you can activate it pressing "R" (unless you changed the default MMA key mapping).
