    can anyone help me with this? i'm trying to put an addaction on an object that, when used, will display a message to only the person who used the action, and then removes the action
    searching around google to help me out, but not finding much
    wait i think i misunderstood this, you mean so that no other player can use it? if so; what i do i to set up a functions library that i can use in most missions
    e.g functions.sqf, which runs from init.sqf
    Code:
    CUL_addAction = {
      (_this select 0) addAction (_this select 1);
    };
    
    CUL_removeAction = {
      (_this select 0) removeAction (_this select 1);
    };
    and then later on if i want to addAction on some unit

    Code:
    _vip = _tempGroup createUnit ["C_man_1",[0,0,0],[],0,"CAN_COLLIDE"];
    //below we send an array containing the vip and the action to be added
    [[_vip, ["<t color='#ffff00'>[ Free VIP ]</t>","scripts\free.sqf",0, 100, true, true,"","_this distance _target < 4 && vehicle player == player"]],"CUL_addAction",true,true] spawn BIS_fnc_MP;
    That addAction can be shortened if you don't care about the conditions or color

    then in free.sqf it looks like this
    Code:
    _vip = _this select 0;
    _id = _this select 2;
    [[_vip,_id],"CUL_removeAction",true,true] spawn BIS_fnc_MP;
    BIS_fnc_MP might look confusing but it's worth learning how to use it

    Being a total noob I never knew about BIS_fnc_MP. This looks like exactly what I need.

    Edited:

    Unrelated: How do you get dialogs exported from the dialog editor to work properly? Exporting it and saving as an .hpp file crashes the game, so I feel like there's some missing code.

    Stuff like that honestly seems pathetic. It's like you can feel their boner through voice when they give "orders".

    So the CRV variant of the panther was in the files, someone just spent 3 seconds getting it working ingame. Looks cool

    Because the silly goose I hosted these from used dropbox, they're not available anymore :(

    That plow is not for snow, in real life it's probably used to move dirt and explosives and perhaps raze houses, in-game this is probably just cosmetic

    Well, I always record, though I doubt that game will end up being edited. Lots of downtime and few times where I actually saw the enemy. Got a fairly cool gif though.

    Does anyone know of a mission/mod for arma 2 or OA that's all about survival/sandbox and hoarding shit?

    I love DayZ for it's gear hoarding, Dynamic Zombie Sandbox for it's base building and wasteland for it's random missions and crap like that.

    Basically I love making and maintaining a base or some shit like that, and survival ect.

    Is there a mission out there that would satisfy my needs?

    I've played with FP once and I disabled all my mods for safety reasons.

    I didn't realize I played with you. Didn't recognize you. I probably had it on then.

    I had a Survival type mission almost like GM Survival, in the works.

    If interest exists I may as well proceed.


    In fact I've started a lot of 'experimental' things, I should start finishing them.

    Scroll down the page for 11 minutes of Altis and Tanks and new vehicles. Completely in German but who cares about that.
