« on: 24 Feb 2003, 23:31:24 »
NEW VER ON NEXT PAGE (if u use 15 posts 4 page option)


Edit: This mission has been reviewed and is available from the Missions Depot.

after all i need som atention 2  ::)  ;)

now after i noticed dat all da misions dat get tested are Nam misions i decided 2 make one 2 ;D mebe ill get som beta testers also  ;) ;D

now dis post is devided into 2 parts ;D

black writing = read b4 testing mision
pink writing = read after testing da mision (or iif u wanna spoil da suprises i have in da mision)

A little bit about the mission itself :-

This missionis devided into 2 parts ;) ;D

1) small squad leader - infeltrate base and steal somthing from it - weapons in this case - after you do dat u need 2 meet wid da rest of your team - join dem and den meet wid biger force 2 attack big enemy base - on da way u can encounter som LRRPs and fight em

2) da attack on da big base - and runing away later when da enemies start droping napalm on your head

time of da mission start is : 4:30 AM

What role the player will have :-


squad leader
side = VC

Which island :-

Ia drang

Version of OFP :-

1.90 or 1.91

Size of zip file :-

curently 43.3 KBs

Any specific points you want people to consider :-

cuz of me being lag hater (nice name isnt it ? ;D) - i used som methods 2 reduce CPU using

setviewdistance and settraingrid and createunit and deletevehicle are things dat u can find a lot in da mision - so if u feel dat da graphics are not da same as ur preferances u know y ;D - in result of all dis it should b playable on 500 MHZ comp (lags lil as much as i know)

da mision wil alwayz lag wen da enemies will use mines against u  :o (cuz of creating lots of bullets in da same time) - so b sure 2 b in safe place wen u give em excuse 2 do dat  ;) ;D

i spent ages 2 script da AI 2 use smartly mines and flares - sp watch out (u can also spin mines if u get close)

da mission may also lag wen using da napalm

also i know dat da napalm i use dont look good in da night but i used it cuz da oder napalm dont kill


dere is stil no intro, outro, overview pic (if som1 can take kool pic 4 me i wil putit dere ;) ;D also ny sugestions 4 name wil b kool - now its called mesima (mens mission in hebrew) but i need real name

if som1 fix da breifing 4 me (i meen da grammar+lang) i wil buy him a beer of his choice ;D

Big thanks 2 jb 4 helpin me wid info bout nam stuff ;D

if som1 thinks he wanna an can make good intro + outro IM me (or post here) wil get his name on da mission 2 ;) ;D

Full details of any addons :-

nam pack (u need link ? after all u wont b here if u dont have it right ? ;D)
and da napalm addon included in da zip file (after all wat is Nam mission W/O napalm ? ;D)

i think dats all ;D

hop u like it ;D

wanders off thinkin bout makin north korean mission  ::)

Oke i'll check this out too. Just a suggestion for you:
Check the Finlanders site and go to the scripts section. MI_Fred has made a great napalm script and it doesn't need any addons. ;D  Not that the napalm addon is cool but ya wouldn't have to add any small addon this way. ;D :P

Right, here we go.   You know my modus operandi by now.

My first ever Nam mission - yes LCD I unpacked the Nampack2 just for you ;D -so I'm very excited ...... the tension builds - drum roll please!

Nope, too laggy as ever for my poor machine ... sorry mate, my fault.

However I can report download ok, mission starts ok.     Briefing is good, add a link direct from small base intel to large base intel and vice versa.

Never let it be said that I can't take a hint .....  ;)

No major changes, I've just done typos, spelling and grammer.   I've also added cross links between the small outpost and large base sections.    I haven't checked it.

That sux Macguba!  

I've felt your pain...   :-\


@ LCD

Ok!!   I tried your mission a couple times and I thought of a name for it:

"The impossible mission"   :P  

Seriously...  It's too difficult man!   Mebbe I just suck or the AI got a lot better since I upgraded my comp..  But I can't get past the first base!   :o  

1 thing I noticed b4 I died..  I was shooting the guys around the fire w/my sniper rifle and the guys that were sitting down wouldn't react..  They started to get up, then the switchmove or whatever kicked in again.. looked funny!   ;)  (they didn't actually get up and fight until the frags went off)   ::)

I'll keep trying it...  Mebbe I just need to try a whole new approach to this mission...  (or mebbe you should make the "steal the weapons" objective optional?)   ::)   :P

Everyone else, you should test this and tell me that you can beat it and that I just suck!   :P   ;)   ;D

Asmo

P.S.  About the name for the mission...  How about "Our home, their deaths"??   I dunno... just trying to capture the feeling of the mission in the name...  I'll keep throwing names out there.   ;)

Yeah, that's it LCD, your mission really sucks.

And, if anybody believes that, I have some very attractive seafront real estate in Moscow that I'd like to sell you.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

I've tested it some more LCD...   :)  

I was just waiting until I actually got somewhere to give you feeback...   ::)   ;)  

I really like how you did the option for difficulty!  That's neat!   ;D

I of course selected "difficult" and set off through the jungle..  Attacked the first base and got a little farther this time, was trying to sneak into it and got killed by a dude in da bushes...   :o   ;)  

So you see.. Not much feedback yet.   :P  I think I'm just gonna cheat and use unlimited saves...  (You should put that in for us Beta testers on this mission, IMO, and then take it out when it's ready)  

But I am testing it for ya.   ;D  

We're gonna have to start a raffle for this "seafront" real estate to get more testers in this part of the forum or summin..    ;)  

Or at least to get big mac (macguba) a new comp so he can play some of these missions.  (I really miss your great feedback)    :'(

I'll be back w/more feedback l8rz

lol

I've got some more feedback for you.

Make the first base where you have to destroy their radio communications or a key radio soldier that's easy to see or something...  Would be more realistic.  (Or you could have reinforcements come to the base if you take too long stealing the trucks)   ;)

I noticed all the vehicles are locked except the ones I happen to need..  Convenient?  Yes.  Realistic?  No.   ;)    How about having one of the officers that stays in the base have some keys for the trucks or somthin?  (you said you like realisim...   ;))

Also, What's radio Bravo in there for?   ::)

You have a hint come up that says "hi" when the frags go off at the first objective.   ;)  Hi back!   :P

I like the sleeping LRRP's..  This time they reacted to me before I saw them and attacked my squad a few times.  (I never would have got as far as I did without using multiple save cheat)

Which brings me to the major bug....    :-\

I got all the way to the meeting point, got the message that I was close, saw a single Radio NVA soldier at the edge of the jungle.. Walked up to him and nothing...  So I ran around the jungle in that area, thinking maybe they're hiding..  Can't find em..  Then I finally do... And a guy joins my squad... And then nothing else happened...  

The NVA did not attack or move or anything...  So I attacked the base by myself eventually, and pissed off an M60 and got my rear end shot with a SABOT round!   :o  

I really want to see that napalm in action too..   ::)
