I need help with mission idea
« on: 01 Jul 2004, 21:44:03 »
sidenote: No talk of sci fi I know but its very questionable because we've talked about certain things sci fi but i remember a mod saying lets not talk about how cool such and such addon is.  I just have a mission idea that i need help on since this is mission ideas.  we won't go into how cool nothing is so I don't see this as sci fi talk.  This is a mission idea.  If you find me incorrect close this but plz read it first.  I'm stuck on what to do next for this idea:  An alien organism has been discovered in the jungle by the colonists there.  The U.S.

military sends a security force to investigate.  They end up shooting one dead, then go back to get

one alive.  They set a trap and get the organism to chase them and catch it.  They keep it and do research.

What's the next move?  Catch more?  Evacuate?  Find the source?

I'd stay away frm the sci fi genre in my opinion. I think it just doesnt suit OFP  ;D .

You don't need to use an alien addon. Make him a shap shifter or invisible. You can create cutscenes that do not show the alien. This would add suspense and intirgue. I don't know. I like the idea though.

Bronze,

There is an excellent mission called 'Operation Firelord' which you may or may not have played - it's on http://www.ofpec.com/missions_depot/index.php?ID=255

This is one idea of how you can handle the sort of plot you are talking about -  I reckon the idea of shape-shifting opposition could be really fun with a bit of crafty scripting.  Maybe think "The Thing" - could you script it so that members of the player's squad get randomly taken over by parasites/bacteria/fungus/telepathy and attack their mates?
