This mission is GREAT!
I got a score of 15280
Duration : 1 h, 47 minIntro
Good, especially the Spetz Natz guy firing somthing
(but he's firing like he's got tons of ammo for the weapon,reduce the speed man!)
and the civilians in the village seemed to have no work except standing right where they were.
Make some waypoints and keep it more alive!Briefing
Not much thing to tell here.Everything works fine.and the one and only link also works too.Mission
I have never played a mission like this before!
Not because it is good or bad but because of the behaviour of the AI!
I opened the backpack after i got out of the helicopter.
And got the following error :
Error undefined variable in expression: verband1
Afer saving for the first time , i got the following dialog :
backpack/close.sqs not foundAction!
There was action right when the chopper landed!
Two guys popped up and attacked the chopper.
But the chopper somehow smoked them.
Afer playing it for a while,i realized that the enemies were SUPERB!
They have one shot one kill ability while my squad mates have 'whole magazines wasted but no kills' ability!
And i doubt my silenced weapon ,so i grabbed one of the enemies weapon,
but firing with that one too was inaccurate!
I've never missed a target if i waste a whole magazine on him!
(well most people are like that too!)
The forest was filled with too many skillful enemies!
I lost all my squads except 3,who was however injured.
(but 3 managed to survive the mission)FIRST CAMP
After i spotted the camp, i tried to slowly crawl behind an enemy who was facing away.
But as soon as i reached about 30m from him,he turned back and killed me with about 3 shots!
After i killed that guy,i remained silent to make them calm down.
The enemies did calm down and were back at patrolling.
And there was a guard facing towards me.i hid myself behind a tree and tried to kill him.
But he put a bullet in me head as soon as it popped out from the tree!
I was stuck killing him, that's why i decided to go the rough way!
Wanna know what i did to him? Well, I just grabbed an RPG from a dead soldier and shot right towards his head!(and I am sure that he was dead!)The Chopper
And after that i tried to hit the chopper with the RPG,and suddenly the fog level rose instantly
making me unable to see the chopper!
But before shooting the chopper,i spotted a pilot.
And what the hell! As soon as i fired the RPG towards him(just pressed LMB, the pilot fired me and killed me!!!!
I TURNED DOWNED terrain detail to very low(removing all grasses for a better view)
But the enemies were too skillful to directly kill them,and i can't even kill them with an ak-74.
The accuracy of both the player and the team-mates were horrible!
After doing a bit of observation!
I found something strange.
The soldiers were aiming at me and they were ready to fire me.
They were waiting for me to trigger something i think,that's why as soon as i fired them,they returned fire!!!
Maybe an ArmA 2 bug?
(for example,it looked like someone put a FIRED eventhandler and make them fire me as soon as i fired something )
Okay enough 'looking at me's and 'i can't kill them' things.The Good '3'
3 has been very helpful for me.
I put him in "STEALTH" mode and make him "Prone (7-8)" all the time.
And it seemed like the enemies were just looking for/at me,not him.
(The pilots also was looking at me ALL the time since he's spotted me)
I released three rpgs into the base,
Well you guess what i did after that.....
Grabbed an ak with a grenade launcher and shot about 8 into the base!
And my skillful mate,3 seemed to have hit by my last shot.
I stayed there a little while and scanned the area.
After that i saved the game and rush out towards 3...
and gave him a first aid quickly
(if i remember correctly,i've given 3 first aid for more than 10 times!)
As i expected, everyone was dead,except me and 3.
""" what the HELL! Only ONE chopper? That meant THREE more to go!
THREE more ****king bases to attack? with just me and 3? ""
At first i was disappointed (not becaues of the mission but because of the super difficult situation,but i decided to go through)Second Camp
After running with 4x speed around the marker area,
there it is! the next base, up on a hill....
This time i changed my strategy,instead of attacking them directly.
The trucks were a very annoying things in the third camp.Because they continue to blow for a while.And they were the only suitable cover for me to get closer to the camp.
I sneaked around the base and get myself as close as possible to it.(the sheds)
Once i was in position, i thrown about 4 grenades into the base.
The burning fire of the four trucks dims the view and i can't see anything so i waited a while.
(behind a tree)
I called '3' to my place and commanded him to kill some soldiers.
I killed many of the soldiers with some more grenades.
It seemed my weapon is effective only in close combat.
(because i was able to kill a soldier who survived the grenades)
After killing everyone, i thrown about 9 grenades to the helicopter,shot it with exactly 6 RPGs.
And i still can board that chopper!!!!
The player just says "Vehicle is FUBAR" when boarding it.
It was going easier and easier.(from camp to camp)Third Camp
Here i want to talk about the AI :
The AI was superb in the First and Second Camps, they were behaving EXTREMELY STUPID in
the rest camps!
I don't know why! (maybe you've set the difficulty to very low in them)
Indeed, the AI in next camps were not even as good as the AI from OFP!!!!!
Also,that i've grabbed an SVD Dragunov from a dead soldier at camp 2.
And that snipe rifle is SUPER ACCURATE!!!
You just aim them any where and pull the trigger!
One shot one kill!!!!
and why the hell are those weapons that different?
(well not asking to you,to BIS)
I realized that i have to get closer with the RPG in order to blow the chopper up in one shot.
Yeah, I've blown both the chopper and the pilots who were standing (JUST standing) beside it.Fourth Camp
This base holds the record of having the most noob and stupid soldiers!
Except the two sniper guys who managed to shoot '3' and made me nervous.
Three soldiers were standing side by side,i killed the middle one, the two don't even knew that he's dead.!!!
And they just stand there...until i killed them.
This time i wanted to blow the chopper with just one grenade.And that's why i drove the fuel truck put it too near the chopper.And i put the ammo truck too!
With just one grenade, three vehicles were blown up like hell!
I got the message to extract.Extraction
We rushed to the extraction point.
After staring to the sky where the chopper might come out from,i noticed that '3' was lying on the ground with a red sign on top of him!!
What the hell! I found about 4 guys on top of a hill close to us!
I managed to kill them quickly enough to save '3's life (well i am happy!).
We board the chop and got the mission completed titletext.Outro
Not quite realistic, since the mission was setup in night-time and the outro is showing the chopper leaving in daytime.
Other than that,it's just simple showing the chopper flew away and fading to black.Over All
This mission is a great mission IMHO, and to say the truth,i've never completed a Single Mission in ArmA 2 before! (except the Campaign)
I have to use every methods possible to pass the problem.
And with only one AI mate and a less efficient weapon (at the first camp) it took me more than
30 minutes to pass it.
Apart from the weired AI behaviour, the mission was great!Good Job mathias! Suggestions :
Add some radio chatter to the mission.Showing information such as "we found the enemy camp" like in Original Campaign.
And change the time of outro to night(but make sure that it is clear and visible!)
Also, what does that Juliet Radio do.
I noticed it earlier(before reaching Second Camp) and triggered it,but nothing happened.
some photos taken during the mission are also attached.
here's my score and status :
