Notes

Ceeeb
In OFP v1.96, sideChat messages can be sent from 2 abstract sources: "Papa_Bear" and "Base FireFly". Use sideChat on an array in the form [SIDE,"base"],[SIDE,"HQ"],[SIDE,"Papa_bear"] or [SIDE,"airbase"], where SIDE is the side broadcasting. "HQ", "base" and "Papa_bear" seem to be the same object. The callsign strings can be re-defined using a stringTable.csv file, using STR_CFG_PAPABEAR and STR_CFG_FIREFLYBASE. Example : [EAST,"base"] sideChat "Return to base!".
