[RELEASE] ExileMod Re-Arm/Repair (New Release 16/09/18!)

276 posts in this topic

I got some issues with the script, hope its on me doing stuff wrong, as I was not able to get AVS working correctly and put all hope into this.

The issues:

1. Getting multiple selection entries on the rearm with any vehicle when rotating the mouse wheel, it seems just infinite. Only a cosmetic isse though. Rearm works fine, poptab reduction works, poptab check works.

2. Can't repair vehicles with duct tape anymore at all, the "get in as driver first.." message appears.

3. Land vehicles seem fine for what I have tested but helicopters get problems: I tried the CUP ARMED Mi17 helicopter and rearm somehow allows me to put 1.5k (PK?) bullets into the magazine of the chief/commander gun. Haven't managed to get them into the rear gun yet, but might be possible too.


a. Rearm at service point (guns stay at 0/0).

b. Go to gunners seat and push the "rearm TK" button that appears on the selection menu. Then you get 1500/0 loaded in which should actually be 100/5 or something like that.


After restarting the server I was able to repair again with duct tape.

Tried CUP's UH1H armed and got the following:

1. Picture shows loads of different ammunition types to reload with. I picked 200 round m240.

2. Picture: After reloading and getting out, I got no selection menu at all anymore to get inside the helicopter.


After relogging, I could get inside again. Rearm didn't happen 0/0 on both guns.

I reloaded with first selection rearm 100 size magazine. Rearm doesn't happen either.





Something else:
Wouldn't it be the easiest thing to have vehicle ammo carryable items like in A2 that can be reloaded manually once in inventory of player or vehicle?

We just need the magazine type items/models for that. Do they by any chance already exist in arma3?

new test with UH-60:

1. Screenshot shows multiple selections for each magazine/weapon type. Them are exactly 7 for each sides gun and like ~10 for flares.

2. Screenshot shows (not) flickering pilot selection menu. Pilot is popping up and going away frequently without moving the mouse when just aiming at the helicopter. The screen shows a point of time when the 'get in as pilot' was gone for the fraction of a second.


New test with exile's very own Huey helicopter.

It starts with 200/0 magazines on both sides which reload unlimtedly after getting emptied. 

3. Screenshot shows how I reloaded a new full magazine inside after I emptied it before.





Conclusion after testing 4 helicotpers and one land vehicle:

Land Rover M2 CUP

Mi17 CUP





Effects appear to be fully random and I have jack of an idea why that is or what to do about it. Stopping tests here.

Anybody any idea where to start?
Could there be interferences with advanced_towing or anything else?

The whole vehicle reload thing with Exile seems to be vicious.

I am not sure what I have missed, but when I try to repair a Vehicle it says I need poptabs.. When I have the poptabs it repairs the vehicle but doesn't take them from me. Can anyone give me a pointer to what needs changing  so it removes the poptabs from me
