  • Mission Ideas

    Please post any ideas you have about what a good mission could be based on.
    I just finished one that is based on the Bastogne, but during a cold-war era.

    Re: Mission Ideas

    Now I'm thinking of moving on to other missions. I figure, why reinvent the wheel, so I like to base my missions on real-life battles.
    One idea I have is to make some missions involving the USMC Ace units based on a Falklands like situation. Maybe a coop-type campaign. It would involve lots of rucking up mountains (or YOMPing as the British call it).
    Another idea I had was to try to base a mission on the 1989 invasion of Panama or the 83 invasion of Grenada. More marine stuff.
    If you have a good idea, please run it by me. Also if you can, include one of the ACE islands it would work well on. I really want to make some stuff for those unplayed islands.

      Re: Mission Ideas

      Sorry, more inspiration.
      Perhaps a mission based on Desert Storm, 91, 73rd Easting map.
      Something based in Bosnia, Somalia, Haiti.
      Wars of the 90's
      Finally, I had a plan to do a mission in "Iran" destroying a downed aircraft/heli/other or blowing up a "WMD" facility.
      Let me know if any of these sound good. I will have to select one and make something.

        Re: Mission Ideas

        Yep...some of us have been doing these style of missions for a while. ;)

        Scud Hunt is a classic example, I think a Falklands mission would be very interesting but it just would not seem right with USMC units.

        I have to say this is my personal pet peeve about ARMA2 and OFP2 and even ACE at the moment and that is the focus to American units. ArmA as a game is played by people all over the world and thus players should be able to easily pick the nationality of soldier they wish to play.

        This is why we did the TG mod pack for a while, to add some different characters, hopefully the next revision of ACE will have some International forces.

        :)

        I have a downed pilot scenario in the works at the mo, should be done fairly soon.

          Thought about using the MARPAT uniforms because they kind of look like British camo, closer than ACUs at least... Also, maybe use either the m14 or hk417L to simulate the FN Fal and the m240 to simulate the GPMG. Interestingly enough, the British and Argentinan forces used very similar weapons/equipment. Also the BMP2 can be used to simulate the LVTP-7A1s the Argentinans landed with.
          But yeah, the lack of international forces does kind of dimish the opportunity for certain kinds of missions...
          Also, they added the IRAQI civilians but removed all the other ones... Should have just added them in, not replaced the other ones...

            Some time ago, I ran a test using OPFOR T72s (simulating T55s) into the tank bunkers. They failed to enage the BLUFOR armor at any range/angle. Possibly due to the transparent getlod of those bunkers in the map itself. Great shame.

            I too am a fan of well made past operations missions. Ssd to say though, alot of reenactment missions are all poorly made so far. (the ones I've played ofcourse)

                Allow me to rephrase that last post.
                Not the ones I've played on the Tactical Gamers servers do date.

                Matter of fact, I had nothing but joy playing that particular mission.
                Except when a seagull got me killed trying save the full fireteam and 3 remaining members (with any AT whatsoever) at the last objective from uber t72s rolling into us...pissed off at seagull immensely, enjoyed the scud hunt mission absolutely.

                [rant]Personal note: If I encounter ANY seagulls within 5m of my ingame face i'm going to suggest to the admin to boot all JIPs thats in the player pool list.[/endrant]
