We updated the Steam and Xbox Experimental applications of the game.
Over the course of Reforger’s development, we have typically updated the Experimental application with new features 1-2 weeks before the release of a Major Update. This gives modders a bit of a headstart on testing how their mods will work with the upcoming features, and players a chance to try new features ahead of their official release.
With the latest Experimental Update, we’re going to be doing things a little bit differently.
This particular update includes A LOT of new features that will be included in the next Major Update. However, the next Major Update will not be released for at least one month. During this time, Experimental will be updated several times.
We feel that this new approach will be particularly useful for both the Arma Dev Team and our community:
Modders will have more time before the next Major Update to prepare their mods.
Players will be able to try the upcoming features well before their release.
Our team will be able to get more community feedback and statistics.
We would like to encourage everyone to give the new features in Experimental a try, and we would greatly appreciate your thoughts and input. While enjoying the new content, please take a moment to share your feedback with us on our Feedback Tracker. Many of the new features will still need balancing tweaks, so your input will be invaluable to us in crafting the optimal in-game experience.
We will also be holding Public Dev Playtests, so feel free to join our devs in test-driving the latest Reforger builds, as well as some popular mods, on Experimental. The playtests will take place every Thursday until the release of 1.0.
And while we're excited for you to try out the latest versions of Reforger, we would like to be clear:
The Experimental branch is very much a work in progress, and we cannot guarantee its performance or stability.
So, until the next Major Update, we hope you have fun in whichever version of the game you choose to play.
As highlighted in the changelog below, there's a lot of new content to delve into. In this section, we'll focus on the key features of this update.
Rotors can be destroyed upon collision or weapon damage.
There are wash-down particle effects.
Damage to engines, gearboxes, and rotors influences the performance of helicopters.
A new gamepad control scheme has been set up, allowing independent piloting and camera control.
It is possible to control cyclic with a mouse by enabling the Mouse aircraft control gameplay option. Otherwise pilot has freelook.
Improved supply system
Supplies usable for respawning, building support structures, acquiring vehicles, and more.
Supplies have a physical presence in the game world.
Modular system, implementable in user-generated scenarios.
Arsenals no longer function fully the same as other inventories.
Rather than having all items within them at all times it instead adds a copy of the items locally the moment you open the arsenal.
With the newly updated arsenals, items are now what we call Virtual. This means that items are only added to the inventory of the arsenal when you open it and remove it when it is closed. A new function has been added for the system to obtain what items are inside the arsenal even if it is not opened.
Support stations add new ways of interacting with vehicles (repairing, refueling), healing others, and rearming others with various items and ammunition.
Some vehicles such as fuel trucks and medical trucks have been updated for the support stations.
New vehicles and gadgets have been with the support station functionality.
User actions can now loop while the player is holding the action.
A new instigator system has been added to track down the people responsible for dealing damage and getting kill credit.
Added: GetLocalIdentityId() to get the local identity ID of client
Changed: Ban commands are now defined in the script and use the new BanServiceApi
Fixed: Server can show an addon list of previously focused server
We aim to provide our modding community with enough space and time to adjust to the upcoming Major Update. To facilitate this, we're offering guidance on potential causes of mod breakage and how best to handle them. Additionally, we're communicating changes and their implications on modding.
Helicopter simulation and controller have been enhanced with new settings - rotor definitions, gear type and positions, and various flight model attributes.
Rotors and dashboards are separate entities. This allows rotors to have separate models for static, blurred, and destroyed states, and also has convenient modeling of collision damage.
A new particle effect manager class has been added to accommodate for effects like downwash or APU exhaust during Mi-8 startup.
As we develop AI commanding, we're giving you an early look at its modding capabilities. In version 1.0, you'll find the commanding menu, though without AI commands. This will let you experiment with mods and use the menu for various custom actions you might want to create. For more details, check out https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_Reforger:Commanding_Menu_Modding.
Changes to vehicle fires/destruction sounds
All vehicles now share the same destruction .acp (Vehicles_Destruction.acp). Please ensure this .acp is assigned in the SoundComponents of your vehicles.
Sounds for the burning of vehicles were put into a new, separate .acp (Vehicles_Destruction_Fires.acp). Please add this .acp to the SoundComponents of your vehicles if you want to use vanilla burning sounds.
We've added new sounds for supplies fires/cookoffs and fuel tank fires on vehicles. In order for them to work, you'll need to add the "FuelTank" and "Supplies" SoundPoints to the SoundComponent of your vehicles.
Backward incompatible new .acp format
In order to simplify code maintenance and pave the way for future feature enhancements, we've extensively refactored the .acp format.
Ensure you open existing .acp files to verify any missing connections or functionalities. After confirming, re-save your .acp files.
Update of Parameter Input Port Update Behavior
We've removed the "Disable updating" flag from the BankLocal nodes.
You can now control the update settings of the node's inputs on a per-port basis.
Right-click on the node.
Enable "Update" from the parameter's drop-down menu.
Node inputs set for dynamic updates are displayed with a square-shaped input port, rather than the conventional circular input port.
The option for port-updating has been added to other nodes, e.g. Bus' volume parameter input & Filter parameter inputs
Per default, all ports are set not to update. Looped sounds that depend on their input nodes are anticipated to stop working until their input ports are manually set to update.
Changes in the majority of .acp files and signals
Due to substantial changes in the underlying content & technology, many audio mods are anticipated to require manual updating.
is now marked as obsolete and will be dropped in future updates.
It is recommended to switch to the appropriate API returning WorldTimestamp: BaseWorld.GetTimestamp(), ChimeraWorld.GetLocalTimestamp() or ChimeraWorld.GetServerTimestamp().
Various vanilla game systems using this obsolete API have been ported over, so any mods modifying these systems must also be ported over.
Ports of game systems have already been available but disabled in the latest 0.9.9 updates. As such, depending on circumstances it may be possible to make mods ready for new API on 1.0.0 while also being compatible with 0.9.9 by enabling or disabling specific feature flags listed in the file "scripts/Game/config.c".
Weapon stance limits property
Weapon stance limits property has been removed from the BaseWeaponComponent and moved to the CharacterModifierAttributes class (instances of which are stored on items in ItemInventoryComponent (or the derived class WeaponAttachmentsStorageComponent on weapons) in the Attributes array). This allows you to limit stances in which gadgets can be used in the same way as with weapons.
Changed signature of functions
Changed the signature of functions CharacterControllerComponent.TryUseItem() and CharacterControllerComponent.TryUseItemOverrideParams() - in both cases a new argument was added which lets the scripter choose if the used item should stay in hands after it was used successfully.
Furthermore, we have added functions CharacterCommandHandlerComponent.IsUsingItem() and CharacterCommandHandlerComponent.FinishItemUse(), which can be used to determine if an item is being currently used, and to finish using an item (with game logic considering the item use successful - for interrupting item use in a way where the item is not used successfully, use already existing CharacterCommandHandlerComponent.CancelItemUse().
Finally, we have added the function CharacterCommandHandlerComponent.IsItemActionLoopTag(), which allows you to easily check for the TagItemActionLoop tag in the animation graph. The intended usage here is that you can add this tag to the looping parts of the item use animations and then only perform some action while this tag is active. For example, we use this to determine when fuel should be moved between a fuel can and a vehicle while refueling by adding this tag to the looping animation of pouring the fuel into the vehicle, but not to the animations of opening and closing the fuel can.
Vehicle collision damage has been enabled. Please make sure to set up m_fVehicleDestroyDamage appropriately - set up Frontal Impact position, apply changes to prefab, and save.
Created new Instigator class which keeps track of player ID and entity. It should be used in all damage-related scripts, scoring, and penalties systems.
SCR_DamagePassRules have been introduced to SCR_DestructibleHitzone. It allows destroyed fuel tanks to pass kinetic and collision damage to the hull as incendiary, making it easier to set vehicles on fire. Further, such weak spots will be added in the future.
Separated impulse and blast damage effects, so that impulse does not perform traces anymore and blast does not create impulse. We recommend reviewing your warhead configurations and setting them up similarly to our grenades.
HitZoneContainerComponent is no longer supported, please use SCR_DamageManagerComponent and its specialized implementations instead.
Virtual hitzones have been removed from vehicles. SCR_DamageManagerComponent should always contain one default hitzone, other hitzones should have colliders.
Hitzones can now only take damage through the damage manager that contains them.
A new class, BaseDamageContext, is now present in the script.
Damage will also see some changes in future versions of the experimental, they will include:
Simplification of the damage manager hierarchy by probably removing HitZoneContainer in the script to prevent confusion, along with some other changes.
Some script classes might get renamed because of the previous point.
A way to get hitzones contained inside of a damage manager, as currently, GetAllHitZones returns all HitZones in the hierarchy.
Some damage-related functions will have their parameters changed to use BaseDamageContext instead of multiple input parameters. Changes include but will not be limited to:
Functions that share those input parameters in general.
Audio: New Interior Detection
Interior detection is tapping into light-portals technology
Interior signal is 0 when the listener is outside the building & portal range, 0.5 at the center of a portal (e.g. door), and 1 when fully inside a building & beyond the portal's radius
use DiagMenu→Sound→Interior Handler→Enable Debug & Queries for visualization
As part of this update, we're also bringing a set of new tools and functionalities for bettering your experience.
Added functionality for characters falling out of vehicles without finishing the get out animation. This can be triggered by adding a GetOut_Eject animation event to a get out of vehicle animation (will only trigger if the character is above ground).
It is now possible to define if dead and unconscious characters should be kicked out of vehicle compartments - use the "Eject unconscious and dead characters" option on BaseCompartmentSlot and its derived classes - this can be used for turrets, where the compartment is open enough to not limit the character to stay in it if unconscious.
We have added a new event - Event_GetOutAlignToExitPoint - to make it possible to determine at which point during getting out of a vehicle the character should be aligned to the exit point (set on the BaseCompartmentSlot) - this is useful for large vehicles where the door is further away from the seat from which you are exiting, as it allows you to play part of the exiting animation while still attached to the seat, and then the second part while you are attached to the door itself. To use this functionality, it is necessary to add the event to the animation graph and then enable the "Get Out - Aligning On Event" option on the CompartmentDoorInfo structure on specific compartments (stored in CompartmentManagerComponent).

Server performance can be greatly reduced when replicating a high number of characters (players + AIs), and this issue becomes more prominent with increased limits, making it difficult to handle 128 players and 200+ AIs.
