APOCALYPSE is a "fire-and-forget" whole island battle mission. I give you a ton of options to organize what factions (including many supported faction addons) into either a 2 sided or 3 sided war. When the mission starts you will be flown into the battle area with your allies and thats when the fun begins. Each side will invade, attempt to take the island with an ever updating strategy. Each side will automatically receive reinforcements periodically (you can view your own reinforcement queue) until all their reserves run out.
The mission ends when all camps on the island are controlled by one side.
This mission takes alot of code from my prior mission LOST and adds in the whole island war scenario
Really, if you've ever wondered how the US and USMC would do fighting beside eachother against the Russians, or the Takistanis, or the Royal Sahrani Marines. Or if you ever wanted to fighting IRAN vs Takistan, or even IRAN vs IRAN.. this is it. Its easy to set up and you get instant strategic war.
ORDER OF BATTLE: Choosable Factions...
- new : in MISCELLANEOUS menu (0-8-6) option to 'unstick' stuck AI. sometimes AI just wont move lots of time due to either being stuck in a pistol holding animation or sometimes after emerging from water. I've seen this in the vanilla game as well. now you can go up to an AI and select this and the AI will be 'unstuck'.
- new : for other AI, code will attempt to unstick AI periodically on its own in the background
- tweak : LOST mode - when loading cache on vehicles, better handling of loading back on vehicle it was just unloaded off of.
- numerous small bug fixes
Included missions folder go into your ARMA 2 Missions folder:

For the ADDON pbos, Recommend using modfolder included in the download.
Example directory structure using a modfolder named @markb50k_Apocalypse (you can name it whatever you like):
@markb50k_Apocalypse/Addons/MARKB50K_Config_Chechen.pbo (use this ONLY if you are running Stagler's Chechen Rebels and want the option of Chechens on any side)
@markb50k_Apocalypse/Addons/MARKB50K_Config_Iran.pbo (use this ONLY if you are running Iranian Forces Mod and want the option of these units on any side)
..etc.. for all other config pbos
Then make sure you add @markb50k_Apocalypse to your -mod parameter in your game startup shortcut.
