Blitzkrieg for A3 (PvP Game Mode) (based on AAS)

Recommended Posts

Sorry had no internet for most time of the day.. so less improvements then planned :/ More tomorrow hopefully.

New version available: https://dev-heaven.net/projects/push/files

Changes:

  • 32vs32 template
  • class limits to adjust with max players (4/8/12 = 1x, 16 = 2x, 32 = 4x)
  • New missions
    • BK_32_L_AgiaMarinaCityWar.Stratis.pbo
    • BK_32_L_CampMaxwellIsHeckling.Stratis.pbo
    • BK_64_H_WarOfStratis.Stratis.pbo

Grenades system might need adjustment with dedicated key available now in A3.

  • 1 key: primary weapon
  • 2 key: handgrenades
  • 3 key: launcher
  • 4 key: pistol
  • 5 key: smoke grenade

Anyone who wants his missions included in the official pack, or has issues with his mission, send it to me via PM.

@ Suspense

Sounds more like server difficulty settings. Can you provide a screenshot.

@ Rak / SiC-Disaster

Please upload your rpt (client and server).

Also would be useful to try to play on our server to see if its a server problem (Blitzkrieg PvP server #1/#2 - www.pvpscene.org)

@ SHARPxSHOOTER

1) For the zone setup you need to adjust LINK and SYNC in settings/ZoneSetup.sqf

2) The test mission has random vehicle spawn active by default (configuration/SetParameters.sqf)

3) The test mission has AI support active by default. To disable it in settings/MissionSettings.hpp

//#define AASD_PVP_VERSION => #define AASD_PVP_VERSION

4) Sniper, Heavy Gunner and the AT Specialist are disabled as there is no meaningful equipment available

Suggestions for additional classes (like diver) or adjustments for existing is welcome. :)

5) Number of playable slots is defined by the template

Tiny = 4on4

Small = 8on8

Medium = 12on12

Large = 16on16

Huge = 32vs32

Finally check the wiki for information on medics/revive/officer respawn etc

http://pvpscene.armaholic.com/wiki/doku.php?id=english:game_modes:advance_and_secure:a_s_promode

The plan is to have all the information available ingame in the notes section and rotating tips shown in the respawn menu.

If someone wants to contribute, contact me. To submit new mission is most welcome too. :)

Will update and improve the guide for it tomorrow.

I also have the same question. Are grenades not objects that can be spawned with a kit just as a specific rifle/explosives are given to each class now?

@ Kinsman

Check post #4.

Grenade handling was badly done prior to A3.

However I will adjust the system now. :bounce3:

An enjoyable mission, but could the versions with vehicles have the vehicles colour coded by team? It's hard to tell just which littlebird is whose. You can use a .paa or the procedural texturing with the setobjecttexture command inside of setvehicleinit and processinitcommands (MP safe).

Other than that, it's all good!

I seem to be having issues with parameters not actually applying at times. For example, I can choose a timer or weather setting, but it won't actually appear ingame. I sense it might be the game and not the missions, but I was sorta wondering if anyone else has experienced it.

Also when it comes to weather, it seems like JIPs don't get the set weather. I had it on rain once, and when I reconnected it was all sunny and nice.

@ askswap

This is a difficulty setting (Extended map info / map[]).

You need to play on Veteran or Mercenary, or change the server difficulty settings.

@ Zrix

What means "at times"? Can you upload your server and client rpt after a failed event please.

Weather is not synced by arma itself. You can only set the variables equally and let arma create a similar outcome.

However it can also very well be that A3 broke the scripted system in use. Will try to check it.

@ kju

Could you change default rule set so enemies are not displayed (same as in Arma 2 AAS missions)? Thanks.

This is all i play online now. My filter is BLitzkrieg.

Please Kju or another mission maker, at some point make a mission with Random teamspawning (so that the team spawns together at a random location, both teams at a x amount of distance away from eachother), and just one or two cap points. Changing Att / deff every round.

It would be like defend the crashed plane/truck, the attacker get only a slight hint of heading. I.e. they see a smoketrail in the disctance or army intelligence gives them a heading.

Cheers

Really good missions guys, great work.

Wouldn't mind a couple more ground vehicles placed around the map though, maybe 1-2 at a time on each side?

Please submit your new missions to get them included in the official pack. :bounce3:

@cm.

You/anyone is welcome to tweak the existing missions (zone positions, vehicles) and send them back. :)

I'd recommend having balance tested and fun maps in the official pack, rather than everything out there. Unbalanced maps could lead to players being turned off.

Well you need to play missions first to be able to judge, dont you think?

Just a suggestion, with each release could you include a version number for the mission.. will make it easier for players to know what version is running on what server etc.

cheers :)

Keep forgetting to mention this:

Kju can you lower the sound of the SWOOSH when you die please? With about 30% or more.

It's very much louder than all other sounds in-game and when i die, it almost makes my woofers explode due to the subfrequencies.

Thanks!
