I'm glad it wasn't marked down for the addons - but I have seen missions where a whole range of obscure ones are required with no real logic to their use.
The issue of the two islands - snow infantry actually come only with Winter Kolgujev, so to use on any other winter island you still need that original. But, really, anyone who likes the snow islands will have most of those addons. LR's choppers are required because I'd never seen a winter camo chopper pack.
Now, if it had actually been submitted and reviewed last year when I actually built the mission, I may have squeezed an 8
- but nowadays there are so many scripts around that players generally demand much more intricacy to missions. I do quite wholly agree with Kuros's general assessment, and think he's made an excellent start.
Btw - I composed and recorded the original music for the missions.
I have no idea whether the most recent OFP upgrade affects the essential timing of the outro, though - others did. But it gets silly having to go back and upgrade all previous missions with every new patch from BIS.
