  Team Killer Lock system Editing    
Murcielago has submitted us his "Team Killer Lock System" tool for ArmA II.

The TKL system is a tiny solution that fix a big problem... team killers or people destroying vital gaming elements. TKL system is easy to use and in addition is an autonomous system, so it does not need a admin or votes.

TKL system punishes team killers by freezing their avatar (10sec, 90sec, 5min...) letting they know that they did something wrong but when they reach the maximum number of friendly kills their games will be locked automatically until the server restart or mission is changed.

Every 5min the list with all the game ID from team killers will be copied so everyone can has access to this information. This games ID can be introduced into the TKL system to ban automatically those users.

Now you do not need to waste your time to have any type of server protected from team killers.

  Real Damage Bullet Proof Vest Edition. Editing    
Murcielago has submitted us a new version of his Real Damage tool for ArmA 2.

Real Damage is a tiny code that fix some infantry damage issues in Arma 2. Like I said Real Damage is a tiny code not a mod so you can add it to your missions and players will not need any extra files to play your missions.

Real Damage does basically two things:
1. Fix the damage for infantry units.
2. Adds a dynamic and realistic bleed out system.

Update 20130127:
. Included Bullet Proof Vest version.
. Improved code.
. Included direction change every time that unit is hit to simulate bullet impact.
. Code made easier to be used.


Bullet Proof Vest version:
This version simulates that units are wearing a class III bullet proof vest (Not suitable for armor-piercing projectiles):
3.1. Hand guns, submachine guns and shotguns do not kill you, at any distance.
3.2. Standard assault rifles ammunition do not kill you at any distance.
3.3. Rifles and sniper rifles will kill you due to energy at close range. Long range hits may be will not kill you.
3.4. Anti-materiel weapons (m107 and AS50) will kill you at any distance by penetration and energy transfer.

  New Real Damage for Arma 2 version Editing    
Murcielago has submitted us the new version v20130113 of his Real Damage for Arma 2 tool (code).

The main point of this update is fix an issue with vehicles. In addition the number of variables have been reduced so it should run even better than before.

I'm currently working in a new version with a bullet proof vest. Please post any comments at BIS forums


Real Damage does basically two things:
1. Fix the damage for infantry units.
2. Adds a dynamic and realistic bleed out system.


The code is very easy to use. The same code will work in single and multiplayer mode and with players and AI (From editor or created via script!)

  Advanced editor modules by columdrum Editing    
columdrum has released an Advanced editor modules addon on the BI Forums.

"Advanced modules" its just a small editor GUI modification that adds the ability to easy configure extra parameters on editor modules. As most of the modules that are out there weren't thought with this addon in mind, there isn't many configurable options on most of the released modules, still this addon its able to configure all the default BIS modules that are documenten con the wiki.
But the true potential of this addon would be modules created with this configuration method in mind.

Right now the features are:

-For mission makers:
Easy configure all the parameters of BIS modules without needing to constantly search on the wiki.
Also added options to 2 ACE modules( air refueling and EASA)
In the future i will add any other addon/module that its documented, or addon makers could do themselves (UNS 2.5 will include at least one of those )

-For addon makers:
You can easy create mision editor modules with configurable parameters.
Also for advanced addon makers, you can create your own custom configuration dialog(i have planned to add some API funtions to make it easier on the future)

Highlights:

Note: this release fixes a bug with the medic loadouts in v2-6-0.

  Interaction Scripts WIP Editing    
Glowbal has informed us that he is working on Interaction Scripts and showed us a video on the BI Forums.

This is a work in progress thread on my interaction scripts for civilians. It currently consists out off three parts, Arrest, Search and Talking. Everything is currently Alpha state and is nowhere near where I want it to be yet. While it's been laying around for a bit already, I have decided to futher develop it and hopefully share with the rest of the community. Everything will be multiplayer compatible.

This old video shows the basic concept:




More to come soon!

  Enhanced Skills Slider v 1.5 by Jedra Editing    
Jedra has informed us about Enhanced Skills Slider v 1.5 release on the BI Forums.

Description
With some of the changes to the way precision-enemy and precision-friendly work in the 1.6 patch, I started to look at how the AI works in Arma 2, paying particular attention to the Skills Array. In various bouts of testing I found that the skills array had a drastic effect on the way the AI behaved. I came to the conclusion that just having a slider for overall skill was not giving the player, or server admin the fine control they needed. Hence the Enhanced Skills Slider.

The Enhanced Skills Slider will allow you to change the skills of a whole side, a whole group or a single unit on the fly. It works in Single Player, Multiplayer (LAN) and Multiplayer (Dedicated).

The Enhanced Skills Slider is a Client and Server Side Addon and will only be available to the server admin when playing multiplayer. It is accessed via the Action menu.
...
Features
- View skill values currently set for individual units
- Change individual skill values on the fly for Sides, Groups and single units
- Increase or decrease skills based on a percentage value
- Apply random skills to units based on a supplied range
- Apply a spread to Random Ranges so that each unit is slightly different
- Client and Server Side Addon
- Restricted to Server Admin in Multiplayer
- V2 Key Signature included
- Optional confid for CfgAISkills included see below)
- Full (ish!) documentation included in the download
- NEW - Any new units created by the clients or the server now inherit changes made with ESS - as long as these changes are made to All Units.
- NEW - ESS now has a map and briefly shows the location of units and group leaders selected.
- NEW - the details section now shows which elements will be inherited.

  From Kju : 2 PvPscene AI Tweaks + DevCon Update Editing    
Kju informed us about DevCon 2012-01-23 release on the BI Forums as well as new PvPscene AI Tweaks releases : AIGunnerToUseAllWeapons and QuickSwitchVehiclePositions

- DevCon 2012-01-23:
This is more like a first preview release of the DevCon.
Still it is already very powerful and most developers should find it very useful.



http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?p=2094432#post2094432

- AIGunnerToUseAllWeapons_AI_C_PvPscene:

With an important fix in the recent 1.61 beta patches,
AI in vehicles finally starts to act properly with a player inside the vehicle as well.

This means the AI gunner engages targets by himself now.
However he is still restrained in the use of the full weapon arsenal available to him.
This little tweak changes/fixes that.
So the AI gunner will now engage also with SABOT/HEAT and missiles at targets
(aka fire automatically without command order for each shoot).
(normally only true for: MG/AP/rockets)


- QuickSwitchVehiclePositions_SP_Controls_C_PvPscene:

Preface: Works only in SP; requires XEH/CBA; may still have issues in special situations.

The addon allows you to quickly switch between driver, gunner and commander seat.

To switch between gunner and commander use the key action assigned to "Swap gunner" (to be found near the end in controls).
To switch between driver and commander use the key action assigned to "Swap gunner" and hold Shift/Ctrl/Alt at the same time.

Important: It uses selectPlayer. That means you switch to the AI entity.
The benefit is that you can switch as player commander to the AI driver,
and still have the AI gunner and (now/temporary AI) commander engage targets on their own.
