RELEASE CANDIDATE 1
WARFARE V1 ADV AI 32 PLAYERS
**********************************
New features include:
*Advanced tactical AI
**RACS AI will stalk and kill you inside of a town, trying to eliminate the invaders and restore peace to their country. This results in a far more challenging experience in taking a town, as RACS won't stand around on a hill until fifty minutes after you've captured the town to come back in and try to take the flag.

*New AI pointsharing script
**Each point gained by your AI for killing enemy soldiers and vehicles is added to your score on the leaderboard. This results in a higher emphasis on teamplay and using your AI to increase the combat effectiveness of your squad. This will also reduce the number of "lone wolves" on your servers, and may help to increase teamwork between unaffiliated individuals.

*Improved Unit Cleanup
**Floating bodies getting you down? Warfare V1 ADV AI includes a sophisticated cleanup script for the removal of crew bodies and destroyed vehicles. This should greatly reduce the amount of lag experienced on servers by removing vehicles which really have nothing to do with combat operations anymore using serverside scripts.

I highly recommend this mission as a new standard for Warfare. As a CTI player since it came out, and as an ArmA player since about two months after it came out, I can say that this mission delivers an experience which is sorely lacking in contemporary versions of Warfare. The mission is based off of Warfare 1.1, and should be compatible with all servers and mods. Give 'er a shot!

Thanks MSpencer,

 The server I've been playing on has been looking for more of a challenge like this.

Do you have a download link?

Axek.

No need for a sound file to create 'combat ambience'

During gameplay ai use all manner of weapon against you, even firing m136's at infantry and lobbing grenades.  Dont be surprised if you get flanked or find the enemy in the depot with you.

AI bridging prevents congestion from ai in the dolores region by moving ai across the bridge automatically.

Sure, the current vers is 1.3, please build using that and post on here with a changelog, vers 1.31 if you don't mind.

If you don't already have a place to host it I recommend rapidshare.

Let me know if your having problems.

I am just making versions for saralite as coding takes so long.  If anyone wants to port this to different islands, that would be great.   There are two proprietary map triggers that must accompany this mission.

Note the two bottom triggers in this pic must be copied to new maps.

This is one of the ai friendly bridge scripts as they appear on the map. They can be moved or copied (with editing to the triggers and to the marker names)

Why....people why can we not stick to using a standard naming system for Warfare Missions.
It makes things ALOT easier being able to see which version of Warfare your custom version is based off.
Please guys, it is not hard to do.

From the wiki:

Quote[/b] ]Naming will also be important when trying to keep an overview of all community made modifications out there, so here's a short description of what to rename and where.

* Folder name - Since this also determines the eventual name of the PBO you might want to release, setting up a clear name for your mission folder is quite important.
o Suggested format: Warfare<player count><Warfare build>_<modification name><modification build>
o Naming example: Warfare32V11_RabbitWarfareV2.2
* Mission name - The name under which the mission is listed in the server browser and mission list is defined in the Intel section of the mission.sqm file. You can modify this by clicking on the Intel field in the top right corner of the mission editor, or by locating the entry in the mission file using a text editor. It is recommended that the naming standard follows a similar format to the PBO name.
o Suggested format: Warfare<player count> <Warfare build> - <modification name> <modification build>
o Naming example: Warfare32 v1.1 - Rabbit Warfare v2.2

This should greatly reduce the amount of lag experienced on servers by removing vehicles which really have nothing to do with combat operations anymore using serverside scripts.

Not sure this is a good thing, sure the body cleanup would be great, but the vehicle cleanup isn't as we get points from salvaging these.
Just another tragic case of terminal kinetic energy poisoning!

It's hard to please everyone, but easy to upset everyone!

I just improved body cleanup, no real change to vehicle cleanup. AI salvagers and supply trucks were disabled.   Otherwise standard v1.1 settings. Supply limit in towns is up to 1000.

That will be great, looking forward to it. must admit thought my pc is starting to struggle with the load (lag). Are any of your plans to include 16 player version?. Was going to have a go myself at reworking warfare but looking at the scripting its beyond me lol. Thanks for your efforts  Posted Image

btw just played on the full island version, its good but was a little disappointed because the extra towns were not there. i think the northern area does need more. anyway great map thanks...
