Title: Training Missions
Post by: WindsorTheater on 14 Jan 2003, 19:01:17
Anyone out there want to make some training missions for the various complex and in depth portions of OFP?

- Sniper Training
- Heli Training
- Tank/Armour Training
- LAW/Rocket Training

By training I mean maps and objectives that are very easy and descriptive giving the user a grasp of what they're supposed to be doing in this huge 14x14km game.  

I'm not one for scripting - but a "training" mission pack would be a good thing to hand off to noobs and probably increase teh OFP fan base considerably...maybe I'll learn the scripting, but I figured something like this may already exist?

the best training is practice

training missions are generally made to teach someone how to use something, but in ofp its pretty straightfoward.  unfortunately a lot of the concepts used in real life couldnt be put in ofp or had to be simplified because they are too complicated (for example the physics of a tank and how they cannot pull 180s)

i am making a sniper-training-mission-set-thing but i take forever to do stuff since i only work on missions when i feel like it.

I know Phantom was doing a pilot training campaign, but i'm not sure how completed it is.

hey if i were to do this i would make a fort say Fort Benning, GA (Home of the Infantry). this would be good for most of the training areas listed+alot more. but its just a thought

I saw a sniper training mission in the Avon Lady's MOM a while back, she rated it pretty highly.
