Added: Possibility to disable randomization and set a color to randomized vehicles by using ‘this setVariable ["color",X]’ in the init of the vehicle where X is a number ranging from 0 to the number of skins (minus 1). If the number is out of range, the skin is still randomized.

According to Suma, beginning with ArmA version 1.08, "setVariable now should work on any entity which can be targeted by AI, including soldier and game logic units. This includes most buildings, but not other static objects. Using it with buildings one should be aware the building may be discarded because of streaming. In such case the variable space is lost. When used for buildings, the storage should therefore be considered non-reliable." Reference: Make setVariable work on other things than just vehicles

Public variable parameter works also for groups in ArmA II. Ref: A2 CIT.

In Arma 2 1.05 the missionNamespace object allows only the two main Arguments by syntax. Publishing the Variable afterwards works fine.

IMPORTANT: This will not work on groups if you do it from the init line (you'll experience locality issues). Do something like this instead: Put this on init line: b_GroupSetup = [group this, "3/B", "Tank", "Platoon"]execvm "grouptest.sqf"; grouptest.sqf: if (isserver) then { private ["_GroupSelect", "_GroupDesig", "_GroupType", "_GroupSize"]; _GroupSelect = _this select 0; _GroupDesig = _this select 1; _GroupType = _this select 2; _GroupSize = _this select 3; _GroupSelect setvariable ["groupDetails", [_GroupDesig, _GroupType, _GroupSize, 0, [], ""], true]; };

Arma 3 SPOTREP #00024 Added: Possibility to disable randomization and set a color to randomized vehicles by using ‘this setVariable ["color",X]’ in the init of the vehicle where X is a number ranging from 0 to the number of skins (minus 1). If the number is out of range, the skin is still randomized.
