Arma 3




	Play set of ambient animations on given unit.

	* Can handle several different anims and auto-switching between them.
	* Detects nearby units with the same animation set and tries to select different animations.
	* A game logic is created on units position and animated unit is then attached to it, to prevent possible problems, like player pushing units around.
	* The unit can be snapped to a set snappoint to prevent game from repositioning the unit.
		* The snappoint is automatically detected, snap distance is 2 meters (in top-down view, ignoring vertical info).
		* To position unit vertically, move its snappoint up/down.
		* A snappoint is a (cyan colored) helper "Sign_Pointer_Cyan_F".
		* This is extremely handy if the unit needs to be placed near object(s) - like on chair near a table.

In 3den editor, place a blufor unit (B_soldier_A_F) near a camping chair (land_campingChair_V2_F).
In init field of the unit:
[this,"SIT2"] call BIS_fnc_ambientAnim;
0 = this spawn {waitUntil {behaviour _this == "combat"};

_this call BIS_fnc_ambientAnim__terminate;}

When this unit is aware of a threat, he will quit the "ambient animation" and will able to return fire.
