  • Could more mission makers use ACE map tools

    Since 231 we have had the option of adding "Map Tools" (http://ace.wikkii.com/wiki/Features_of_ACE2#Map_Tools) to units in our missions. I gives you various options (including freehand draw) which would be nice to see in use on TG. Therefore I'm asking if mission makers could add them to their units/boxes.

    Nice find im gonna look into this since it seems more efficent is it limited to SL's since if markers annoy us at the brief imagine the trouble with drawing

      Yeah limiting it to SL's would be a definite.

        Judging by what it says there everybody has their own map markers, so people would need to use a 'copy map' action if they wanted the markers from other people.

        EDIT: Also, only those who have the map tools (markers and compass) would be able to draw, I think.

          Yes, a useful addition indeed. It's an item which everyone needs to have if they want to use the tools. You add it with:
          Code:
          _unit addWeapon "ACE_Map_Tools";

              Yeah if course one of the first things I drew was a knob. Its not too hard to write legibly either, as long as you zoom in. Only problem is really, you can still make normal marks on the map and send them over side during a mission (is this settable by difficulty?) so it would be tempting to use that.

              Also anyone know how to change pen colour? Haven't worked that out.

                  Your wish is my command. Adding it to my Storm 333 mission and any other missions I make.

                  Edit: perhaps not... the map tools appear to not be functioning yet. It adds the plastic ruler to the map screen but I couldn't get it to draw on the map.

                        Using correct keys and latest version of the keys file?

                        Check wiki for keys:

                          Re: Could more mission makers use ACE map tools

                          I am in ArmA2 as I type this. I can freehand draw and make straight lines on the map just fine. I do not know how to change the color of the line however.

                          Also, holy crap that compass is huge. Good thing it's transparent. I can place it, move it around, rotate it just fine.

                          EDIT: I haven't enabled any modules, just put this in my guy's init line

                          Code:
                          this addWeapon "ACE_Map_Tools"

                            That removes the maps from all units.

                              The compass isn't huge, you are just jamming your face REEAAALLLLLLY close to the map. ;)
