The FA mission template has been updated to F3 3-2-2 (official release version) and WS Fnc (20/02/2015) :eng101:

There is no need to update missions already made with a version of the template using F3 3-2-2 but make sure to download it before starting work on new missions.

Changes from last Template
F3:
- Caching fixes/Improvements
- changed onLoad logo to jpg
- added new logo to be displayed for the mission list
- smaller fixes & improvements

WS_fnc:
- taskAmbush improved
- taskConvoy improved
- smaller fixes & improvements

As per usual, to update from an older version of the template you can either:
A) Copy your mission.sqm and briefing files into a fresh download of the template, then adjust init.sqf and description.ext
B) Use WinMerge to compare all files for changes and update the relevant ones.

  • Many small tweaks and fixes
  • Full readme and changelog

Ws_fnc:
  • Improved positions of units in buildings (faces out of windows, no more starring at walls etc.)
  • Many small improvements to existing functions (taskLand, taskAmbush etc.)

As per usual, to update from an older version of the template you can either:
A) Copy your mission.sqm and briefing files into a fresh download of the template, then adjust init.sqf and description.ext

The FA mission template has been updated to F3 3-3-0 RC2 and WS Fnc (20/04/2015) :eng101:
Download

This is a very minor update. Missions made with RC1 don't need to be updated.

As per usual, to update from an older version (pre F3 3-3-0) of the template you can either:
A) Copy your mission.sqm and briefing files into a fresh download of the template, then adjust init.sqf and description.ext
B) Use WinMerge to compare all files for changes and update the relevant ones.

To update from RC1 to RC2:
* Replace and overwrite the f/spect/ folder in your older mission with the same folder from the fresh download.
* (Only if using the pre-placed Zeus units!) Remove the line
Code: Select all
[this] call f_fnc_zeusSyncCurator
from the init of the game master module.

Download

The update from RC2 to 3-3-0 is mostly optical. An update of missions made with 3-3-0RCx is not required.

For older missions it is recommended to do a clean update by copying the mission.sqm and f/briefing/ folder into a fresh download of the FA template.

The FA mission template has been updated to F3 3-3-0, the Folk ARPS 2015 Platoon and WS Fnc (26/04/2015) :eng101:
Download

The update from previous versions of the FA template is significant, as our platoon's OrBat has now changed (see What is the Folk ARPS 2015 Platoon?).

The FA mission template has received a minor update.

The update fixes some minor gear assignment issue and tweaks ease-of-use of ws_fnc_createGarrison (functionality remains the same).

Do I need to update old missions?
Unless your mission depends on vehicle cargo using "standard" loadouts: No.

How do I update old missions?
  • Replace all assignGear_Faction files with the updated versions (including _light & _standard sub-files)
  • Replace ws_fnc_createGarrison in ws_fnc/AI/

The FA mission template has been updated to F3 3-4-1dev :eng101:

This update fixes a few minor issue and adds a mini-ORBAT for Gendarmerie.

Do I need to update old missions?
Not necessarily, but double-check in your init.sqf that the AI skill component is enabled (lines 149/150).

The FA mission template has been updated to F3-FA v31_Mar_2017

Small fixes mostly, fixes bleedout timer.

Updating older missions
Old missions should be fine, though you should take the f/simplewoundingsystem folder from this and put it in your old missions if their bleed-out timer is broken.
