« on: 18 Jun 2007, 02:26:57 »
Im planning a mision right now dat replicates an (prety much known) asasination  (w/ a lil of change 4 artistic + fun value  :cool2:).... anywayz im planning da player 2 play some mission b4 da asasination itself as "planing" part... now im gonna script a war more or less in da mision area (having 2 sides attackin each oder randomly) now im in a dillema.... i have something like 4 tasks 4 da player (obtaining fake ID, getting money, obtaining hotel plans, etc...) nd i cant decide if I just have da player do em in da order he likes... or havin da mision space over some days (somehow it sounds more realistic...) and give him a task each day... anyone caring 2 share his view over dat... :D

1) Robbing a bank
2) helping an independent drug dealer

It sounds like a good idea. I think you should have the player all the 4 tasks at the same time, but make him able to do them in the order he wants, as you said. Some ideas to get money:

- If it's on Sahrani, how about tasks to escort civilians trough the border to the other side?
- Some military operations (eg. eliminating an enemy officer, destroying targets, etc.)
- Bringing weapons and ammunation to some guerilla group with a truck
- Steal enemy vehicles and bring them to friendlies

Well that's all I come up right now... Sounds kinda mercenarish but they're just ideas.

Plus you should check out a script by ColSandersLite that populates areas with civilians here.

Yup this is something I have in my mind since the release of ArmA in november. Have worked on it a few months ago but haven't been active with it for a month or so now. Will start working on it once things start to settle or the holiday kicks in, only a few weeks away.

Hope that I get it working already.

Hey LCD!  I think for this type of mission, the player would tend to do things to not attract attention before the assassination.  With that in mind, I would go with your idea of helping an independant drug dealer, as long as it's not doing the muscle side of the biz, more driving load A to point B, flying plane A to point B, moving load A into truck B, etc..etc..Or perhaps like Rellikki said, transporting arms to guerillas and such, like the independant drug dealer is not only in the drug biz, but also dipping his hands into arms smuggling.  Sounds like a good concept to me, I hope to play the mission.
