Hey,

do you know any missions where the player jumps out of an airplane together with his batallion ( a lot of airplanes ) in the morning, under heavy AA fire ( a lot of tracers, flak explosions, etc...)?

I know only three, but in all of them, you start already in the parachute.

I want to start in the airplane. :wow:

Thanks

Tomasz

I am making a campaign involving a mission like that, unfortunately for you, it won't be out for release for, at the very least, a year.

lol, what a coincidence, I just downloaded that today. It's AMAZING (IMO). It got a seven which does probably sum it up. I say it's amazing but it just overloads you with special effects and you find it hard to take in the bad stuff. Getting link now, i'll edit post once I have it.

EDIT:
Here ya go:

BTW, I'm afraid you start in Heli's and not planes but it's still great.

Here's the sequel, which is FAR better (got a 10/10 but was rerated 9/10):

The whole trilogy is great, though my favorite is Airborne since it got the best atmosphere ever in an OFP mission. Too bad it's 1.46, SUI, UPDATE!!!! ;D

Another good para mission is the first mission in the I44 Mod Husky Campaign. About one of very few missions that are good in that campaign sadly though. :-\

EDIT: Para down with your complete batallion? Woa! You know how frikkin huge a batallion is?! Check the "realistic mission design fact whatever" link in my sign.

If you get the C47 SkyTrain addon it has a few (aparently) amazing missions, one where you start in the plane, and para drop under AA fire :)
(I say aparently as when I downloaded the plane, I didn't have the Inv44 demo mod, and it needed it, and only had 56k then)
On OFP.info (News item a while ago)

Thanks for the Kudos, fullas. Enjoy them :)

I was thinking about that the other day actually...
I'm working on another mission in the sequence as we speak... and yes it includes a nighttime airborne insertion ;)

Now if only I still got paid to do nothing and had more time, like I used to... ;D

Pfft... no worries mate. I was trying to get it done in time to enter it in the Mission competition, but fell off the wagon a bit. :P

I'm no where near needing voices just yet, but I'll get in touch when I do. Thanks for volunteering ;)
