80 posts in this topic

CO_30 SG Occupation v1_9

Insurgency style cache hunt map with integrated side objectives. Enemy locations to secure, helicopter reinforcements to neutralize, minefields to disarm, and enemy/ally equipment to hijack.

With thanks to =LP= (=Marsoc=), and the Marsoc crew for helping me with the new more server friendly spawn code, proper corpse/wreck (group & unit) cleanup, and helping me test things out(lots of server restarts and editing).

Installation:

Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA3\MPMissions folder.

updated the download! Added in backpacks, disabled ai for dedicated, and added a few more red zones. Also removed the bis defend function from the enemy troops, and they seem to be making a b-line for the main base less often/reacting to their surroundings better now.

*update* fixed a few blooper sites, and added in 7 naval targets along the western coastline. Contemplating adding in a couple patrols in the open areas central island, and some more naval targets on the eastern coast. v1.1release

also added in an armaholic mirror courtesy of Big!

Unofficial update,

Replaced murkspawn with UPSMON (murkspawn was crashing with 44 players). Put in vehicle respawn, crates, anti nade at base.

Note:

May be laggy on older PCs, adjust "MIN:",3,"MAX:",6 *min to max unit cloning amount* (eg. "MIN:",3,"MAX:",6 -> "MIN:",0,"MAX:",2)

Civvie slot is for HC/Spectator, ignore for now

ToDo:

Update/fix mission init message

Add briefing/instructions

Norrin revive (fully ported, just need to add & test)

Ammobox not Working

my version 1.2 or zorro's v.01?

posted a revamped version of the mission. using kylania's spawn script with no re-spawning a.i atm. Added in random road mines with roadside ambushes (could be some funky locations needs tested). 5 enemy "ammo dump" locations randomly located for neutralizing. Will update with enemy vehicle spawns, and random scuba mine/diver encounters in the bays(sea tiles currently empty). Need to hunt down some more classnames (wait for someone to find em, post em, and find the post).

hotfixed some things in the revamp and updated the dl file. re-positioned the ammo crates, fixed a broken trigger, and changed the a.i default to CBA_fnc_taskdefend instead of patrol (hopefully works with the cba_a3 addon). Still no dice on vehicle or scuba classnames. Off to continue the search!

Thx for theese missions really like them - looking forward to revive.

I have 1 question and 1 suggestion.

My question are that view-distance seems to be stuck at around 2000m - why ?

Suggestion: When i host this mission biggest problem are people planting c4 in spawn/base.

Can there be some protection against this (maybe like in domo/a2 - kick for planting c4 in base, and maybe

a no shoot area there too.

Don't know what's up with the view distance. Will look into it.

Added in anti nade and respawn with same weaps/gear for both missions. updated dl links! lookin into revive(if it's not active from the weaps/gear respawn script) and anti c4 @ base.

there's alot of buggy stuff when hosting as client. Don't know about dedicated!

One gamebreaker bug - ammoboxes after destroyed dont refill.

Repro - take 1 c4 - plant beside box - whole base gets destroyed.

After ammoboxes respawn - they are empty.

By the way - i host dedicated (-server)

Edit: Another thing - now that in arma3 that fire hurts - it might

not be wise to place vehicles/choppers close together - if one

catches fire, it wil start a never ending chain reaction of exploding

vehicles.

So I can make the crates invincible with "this allowDamage false" in the init. They still have physics though, so they're subject to being knocked all over the place. Going to work on no demo/nades in base (I can spread vehicles out all over the place and it's still demo dominos. some instances moreso). Seems to be the only solution for base trolls.

Add a mark for the blufor base, on a harder difficulty you cannot see your location and lots of people get confused.

updated versions to 1.3 and 1.2. Rebuilt the base and moved aircraft to the spartan. Added in a base marker. Added minefields/enemy supply dumps/randomized a couple vehicle spawns for the occupation version.

*edit* after some gameplay, things aren't working for everyone. will keep looking into it/wait for alpha updates. :D

I can confirm at 1.3v does not spawn any enemies in red squares, although mines and ambushes are working properly.

will post a hotfix. deleted one too many lines in the init.sqf when removing the startup msg. should resolve the issue adding it back in.

Can you perhaps have it so that enemies in a square don't spawn until you are within 500m - 1000m of said square? I'm no expert but I'd assume it would lag the server out with all the AI spawning at the start of the mission?

try the revamp version. It uses scripted spawns. The murkspawn version deletes all spawned units to be spawned back in using the proximity triggers. I can setup a revamp version with a.i respawns. briefing, a.i moving indoors, and a revamp respawn version on the todo list.

the hotfix for the occupation version should be up. did a quick drive through a couple sectors and a.i was spawning again.

currently working on a Fort Maxwell fob defense for the Marsoc crew. Should have all the revive/respawn/rio loadout along with a reloadable mortar emplacement.

Version 1.4 is up! Hopefully a more server friendly setup using bis spawn functions, vas system for less base ground clutter, proper auto cleanup(hide body action soon), and a more resilient base. Big thanks to LP =Marsoc= and the Marsoc crew for helping me with the new scripts, and testing! More details in op. Hopefully the download works~

I've been running the dev build. It may require it running to play now. Haven't tested.
