About 10 years ago, I was an extremely active member on this forum under a name I have long since forgotten. That was back in the days of the Original Cold War Crisis game. I had lots of fun, mainly writing missions. I became pretty good at it. I am a recently graduated Electrical Engineer. I specialize in mixed analog/digital and embedded systems. I therefore program in just about any language, mainly C and C++.
I have some time on my hands and discovered ARMA3. The game play, if memory serves me right, is very similar to the original. The graphics are so much better and there is just so much more to this game. Frankly, I feel overwhelmed. As with any new system, I just have to goof around to learn it.
I decided to learn the scripting interface to ARMA3 by writing a small mission where a detachment of NATO forces is cutoff by the CSAT. The player is surrounded in the Altis swamp and needs to designate targets for NATO MRLS units to demolish CSAT fortified positions to allow the detachment to reach saftey. The player is a sniper spotter and the partner (the sniper) is playable.
Which commands should I reference if I want to use the radio to request MRLS units to fire at the laser dot?
A big thanks from a long time Flashpoint Fan
