About this script:

The script places random ToXic field missions on any map with soldiers & anomaly creatures protecting a loot crate. The four creatures are Farty, STRIGOI, Sparky & the Screamer. All creatures can be destroyed with explosives, under-barrel launchers or grenades. It is very easy to install.

Farty is a smelly green slug creature that appears from the ground to spit toXic goo on it's enemies. https://goo.gl/FSK7WV

Sparky is at every mission protecting the loot crate. It creates electrical shock waves when someone comes to collect the reward. https://goo.gl/zmJrnL

The Screamer is an ancient statue that screams sonic waves at it's enemies. https://goo.gl/Pw6KuQ

STRIGOI a spectre that runs at lightening speeds with the abilty to jump into tree tops for cover. https://goo.gl/cEZcp6

The soldiers guarding the mission include up to 4 guards, two static guns and an armed vehicle. The loot in the crate includes a variety of Exile items plus $500 to $20000 poptabs.

Requirements You must have Exile, Dms & Occupation installed for this to work.

  • Turn off Anomalies by setting the first line in each section to false. You can also configure each anomaly to your liking.
Spoiler

UPDATES:

25.05.18

+ Thanks to @VipWip we now have no spamming in the logs. You will need to update your screamer file here:

https://github.com/aussie-battler/Alias-Anomaly-Creatures/blob/master/Exile.Mission/AL_screamer/screamer.sqf

+ Sparky now deals damage, you need to update this file:

https://github.com/aussie-battler/Alias-Anomaly-Creatures/blob/master/Exile.Mission/AL_spark/al_orb_move.sqf

+ Make a Radiation Field at the mission. Thanks to the idea from @ItsDutch you can now make the ToXic field a radiation zone. You will need to wear a gas mask to enter the zone.
1. @ExileServer_Lingor\addons\a3_exile_occupation\scripts\occupationFarty.sqf
change lines 43 to 50:

Spoiler

    if (SC_occupyLootCratesMarkers) then
    {        
        _event_marker = createMarker [ format ["Toxic_%1", _i], _position];
        _event_marker setMarkerColor "ColorGreen";
        _event_marker setMarkerAlpha 1;
        _event_marker setMarkerText "Toxic Weed Crop";
        _event_marker setMarkerType "ExileContaminatedZoneIcon";
        _event_marker2 = createMarker [ format ["ToxicCircle_%1", _i], _position];
        _event_marker2 setMarkerAlpha 1;
        _event_marker2 setMarkerType "ExileContaminatedZone";
        _event_marker2 setMarkerSize [150, 150];
        _event_marker2 setMarkerShape "ELLIPSE";        
        _event_marker2 setMarkerColor "ColorGreen";
        _event_marker2 setMarkerBrush "Border";
    };   

2. @ExileServer_Lingor\addons\a3_exile_occupation\scripts\occupationScreamer.sqf
change lines 43 to 50:

Spoiler

    if (SC_occupyLootCratesMarkers) then
    {        
        _event_marker = createMarker [ format ["Screamer_%1", _i], _position];
        _event_marker setMarkerColor "ColorGreen";
        _event_marker setMarkerAlpha 1;
        _event_marker setMarkerText "Screamer";
        _event_marker setMarkerType "ExileContaminatedZoneIcon";
        _event_marker2 = createMarker [ format ["ScreamerCircle_%1", _i], _position];
        _event_marker2 setMarkerAlpha 1;
        _event_marker2 setMarkerType "ExileContaminatedZone";
        _event_marker2 setMarkerSize [150, 150];
        _event_marker2 setMarkerShape "ELLIPSE";        
        _event_marker2 setMarkerColor "ColorGreen";
        _event_marker2 setMarkerBrush "Border";
    };   

3. In Exile.mission\config.cpp

Spoiler

        class Radiation 
        {
            // 1 = enabled, 0 = disabled
           enable = 1;

         };

UPDATE 30.05.18

  • Added a new Alias Anomaly, Strigoi. 
  • Added a the ability to turn Anomalies on/off in @ExileServer\addons\a3_exile_occupation\config.sqf
  • Cleaned up the sound folder so you can delete sounds to Anomalies that you don't want to use.
  • Made it easier to see which anomaly is loading up in the logs.
  • Sparky now deals damage, players can wear / have a protective item to avoid it. The protection is defined in Exile.Mission\\AL_spark\al_orb_move.sqf in line 6:

         obj_prot_sparky = "H_PilotHelmetFighter_B";  // I set it to the helmet worn by the mission ai.

 

20180529013425_1.jpg

 

       Update 5.06.18

  • Configured an easy setup for each Anomaly in:    @ExileServer\addons\a3_exile_occupation\config.sqf

  • Added toast success hint at the end of each misison. Configure it here:  @ExileServer\addons\a3_exile_occupation\scripts\deleteMapMarkers.sqf

  • Anomalies wont depawn when the map marker deletes (except for Farty). I extended the player detection range for Farty so you can't run in & delete the map marker (removing the Farty Slug).

  • Known issues that I would love to fix (I need help):

  • The ToXic field doesn't give you damage. It is suppose to make you take damage unless you wear a protective item. I tried modifying the code to give damage like the Exile Radiation fields but it didn't work.
  • Sparky doesn't give you damage either, you are suppose to wear a protective device to not take damage.
  • Farty disappears & reappears according to the map marker. It is for this reason I won't make the mapmarker disappear when players get close to the mission. The mission was getting exploited on our servers with players running in to the loot crate, causing Farty to vanish.

@RSJFL
I get that error as well, i gave up on it. I couldnt see the problem with_poz and the other error say3d. The screamer still calls the sound so i dont see the problem. You could just not use the screamer mission if you want clean logs.

To take it out go to startOccupation.sqf and comment it out. I'll take another look at it when i get more time.

Because 'Man' could be anything including npc and even rabbits, you could try to replace "Man" by 'Exile_Unit_Player' at lines 81 & 88.

Spoiler

81 :  if  (count (_entitate nearEntities ['Exile_Unit_Player',100])>1) then...

88 : if (count (_entitate nearEntities ['Exile_Unit_Player',150])<2) then...

EDIT : and i did not see that : line 3

private ["poz"];  should be private ["_poz"];

(probably the main error raison, but it should be better to change the two lines 81&88 anyway, in case of npc presence in 100m range-check and Exile Player out of 150m range-check)
