(ArmA3 1.24) It is recommended to use configClasses instead of BIS_fnc_getCfgSubClasses and BIS_fnc_uniqueClasses on subclasses collection or conditional selection. _faces = "true" configClasses (configFile >> "Cfgfaces"); //same as: _faces = (configfile >> "CfgFaces") call BIS_fnc_getCfgSubClasses; //Extract all animals: animals = "((configName _x) isKindOf 'animal')" configClasses (configFile >> "CfgVehicles"); /*same as: aniamls = []; [(configFile >> "CfgVehicles"),{ if ((configName _this) isKindOf “animal”) then { animals set [ count animals, _this] } } ] call BIS_fnc_uniqueClasses;*/ Return nested subclasses, currently still BIS_fnc_returnChildren //Return all nested config classes.
[(configFile >> "CfgFaces"),1, true, true ] call BIS_fnc_returnChildren;
