WLA: Amalgamation

Posted Image

A Dynamic Whole Map SP/COOP mission focusing on smooth performance, offering wide customization options and full freedom for gameplay in random generated world events that react on player's actions. Where ever you go, there is life and events to see depending local relationship values and what kind of enemy/friendly installations there happens currently to be. Capture factories, piers, power plants to get resources faster to custom build AI guarded guardposts with custom easy-to-use constructing system or spend it to call more support that you can high command if wanted. Or drive any land vehicle, chopper or plane, capturing dynamic generating zones around map. Keep local civilians happy by commiting tasks for them or turn them rioting by raiding villages for more resources. Experience the campaign long mission run by over 400 scripts that are constantly updated and expanded.

Situation on Altis is unclear, the last reports indicate Persian invasion. Greek have been unwilling to give us any intel yet, but is believed to prepare assault on the island to protect his army installations on the island. Your team will be sent there to investigate the island status for our knowledge.

Thanks everyone, :) I am currently lowering the unit amounts some bit which seems to make the mission more smooth. Update coming very soon with other new stuff/features.

Hopefully for the coop version there will be a respawn script and perhaps some gear or customization for the singleplayer version. Hate relying on my friendly AI to take down armour.

There will be base respawn in the next version (to compensate the more poor savegame system in MP), also much gear crates and rest at campfire function.

Hello and thanks,

there isnt yet SP mission list. You need to put the pbo file into MPmissions folder and play it from multiplayer lobby. Once they add the SP menu, the mission should work in the old way too.

would it be possible for some sort of vehicle request feature. sometimes it'd be useful to be able to bear down with some heavier firepower? just curious as I'm really enjoying this mission!

thanks for your effort and producing such a decent mission so quickly :)

Thanks, and sure I could add something like that. I have the smoke signal scripts already in the mission to havent yet tested if the old smokegrenade class names work. When throwing smoke, nearby friendly groups (infantry and vehicles) should head at you. I will check it and also add some heavier support that player could call (arty, fighter choppers, maybe mg vehicles). The transport choppers dosent yet work, there is no invisble helipads to order AI pilot to land and no parachutes.
