Description

Description:
Sets activation distance of Arma 3: Dynamic Simulation for given category.
Groups:
Dynamic Simulation

Syntax

Syntax:
category setDynamicSimulationDistance distance
Parameters:
Category Default
Group 500m
Vehicle 350m
EmptyVehicle 250m
Prop 50m

category: String - can be one of:

  • "Group" - infantry units. Set to a reasonable distance, player should not see disabled infantry units
  • "Vehicle" - vehicles with crew. Set to a reasonable distance, player should not see disabled vehicles
  • "EmptyVehicle" - all vehicles without crew. Separated from Props as Empty Vehicles have often more complex damage states and selective destruction. Their activation distance should be larger than the one used for Props
  • "Prop" - static objects. Anything from a small tin can to a building
distance: Number
Return Value:
Nothing

Examples

Example 1:
"Group" setDynamicSimulationDistance 1000;

Desired distances for "Group" and "Vehicle" must be based on viewDistance and fog to exclude any rendering problems with frequently moving objects. Example:
"Group" setDynamicSimulationDistance ((viewDistance * 0.8) - (viewDistance * fog)); // 80% of maximum rendering and fog distance
But that might impair objects simulation if you are using long-scope optics, so there's an even better solution using cameraView with it:
0 spawn { while { true } do { if (cameraView isEqualTo "GUNNER") then { "Group" setDynamicSimulationDistance (viewDistance - (viewDistance * fog)); // Scoped } else { "Group" setDynamicSimulationDistance ((viewDistance * 0.8) - (viewDistance * fog)); // Not scoped }; uiSleep 0.25; }; };
