Description

Description:
Sets the group radio callsign, how it will be displayed in radio chat. Two groups on the same side cannot have the same callsign (possible on different sides) - see Example 4.
The identity setup can consist of format keywords (marked with %) and param keywords taken from CfgWorlds config. Formatting is almost like using the format command but with some special group keywords (see Example 2).

  • "Squad2" → 2
  • "Squad3" → 3
  • "Squad4" → 4
  • "Platoon1" → 1
  • "Platoon2" → 2
  • "Platoon3" → 3
  • "Platoon4" → 4

Operation Flashpoint
  • In Operation Flashpoint, the group ID cannot be freely decided and format must be [letter, colour, picture] or [letter, colour] - nameFormat cannot be a custom text - see Example 3.
  • The radio callsign strings can be overwritten in a mission by writing Stringtable entries of the same name. Some entry names:
    • STR_CFG_GRPNAMES_ALPHA
    • STR_CFG_GRPNAMES_FOX
    • STR_CFG_GRPCOL_BLACK
    • STR_CFG_GRPNAMES_SIX (unlike its name suggests, this is a "group colour")
    • STR_CFG_FIREFLYBASE
    • STR_CFG_PAPABEAR
    • STR_CFG_HQ_BASE
Multiplayer:
For the global variant of this command see setGroupIdGlobal.

Groups

Syntax

Syntax:
group setGroupId [nameFormat, nameParam1, nameParam2, ...]
Parameters:
group: Object or Group
nameFormat: String - format template (%keyword1 - %keyword2...etc)
nameParamN: String - param keyword
Return Value:
Nothing

Examples

Example 1:
Arma 3:
group player setGroupId ["Some name for the group"]; hint groupId group player; // "Some name for the group" player sideChat "lalala"; // Some name for the group (KK): "lalala"
Example 2:
Arma 3:
group player setGroupId ["%GroupNames :=: %GroupColors", "Alpha", "GroupColor2"]; hint groupId group player; // "Alpha :=: Red" player sideChat "lalala"; // Alpha :=: Red (KK): "lalala"
Example 3:
Armed Assault / Arma 2 / Arma 3:
group player setGroupId ["First Assault Recon Team"];
Operation Flashpoint:
_group1 setGroupId ["Delta", "GroupColor4"]
Example 5:
When trying to apply the same callsign to two groups of the same side, the callsigns will simply be swapped, e.g:
group1 setGroupId ["Active Group"]; group2 setGroupId ["Inactive Group"]; group2 setGroupId ["Active Group"]; // group1 is "Inactive Group" now
