Tactical Map Pack - The Ultimate Zeus / MCC Template Missions - RHS - Version 1.1

Recommended Posts

Tactical Map Pack - The Ultimate Zeus / MCC 4 Template Missions Pack.

Inspired by the 'Master Altis' and 'MCC Templates' in the vanilla game. I have created what I see as the ultimate template for a more modern and modded ArmA 3 game. The idea behind these missions is to set up a whole bunch of default parameters quickly and easily at the beginning of the game. That way Game Masters don't have to spend so much time setting up difficulties, spawn points, ammo boxes etc. Zeus / MCC missions can begin as quickly and as easily as possible. It is still worth Game Masters to quickly review the Mission Settings in MCC before the game begins, but they are set to how my group mostly plays and enjoys with minimal UI interference and a challenging but not over powering GAIA difficulty setting.

If you use Master Altis, Stratis or any other Zeus Template or the MCC Templates these missions are not to be let pass by. They are for streamlined Zeus Missions.

Cheers, I will take a look into it. I'm going to work on getting the missions working with ACE 3, Task Force Radio and MCC 4 Sandbox as optional mods for the missions instead of having them as mandatory. Obviously some of the functionality from the mission will be missing for those who chose not to run the recommended mods, but for those people who don't want to run them or want to run alternatives like ACRE2 instead of Task Force Radio they will be able to do so.

But that is work in progress right now I'll see if I can get them working with those mods as optional and still keep the full functionality of vision for the ZGM.

Optional sounds great Rekkless. Looking forward to testing them out once they are ready.

So I've been working on removing dependencies it seems a little more complicated than I had once anticipated. But I am determined to get something sorted to be able to remove the dependancy on ACE and TFAR.

In the mean time I tweaked pretty much all the missions, added in Explosive Specialists from the latest RHS Update so now Explosive specialists get bonuses when interacting with explosives which makes their roll necessary.

I have almost finished creating Tactical Advanced missions which is a separate set of missions that incorporate Advanced Medical and Advanced Ballistics from ACE 3. For groups who play hardcore realism in their Zeus missions.

A Massive Update this time around:

Additions To Version 1.04

Tactical Advanced Missions Added bringing Total Missions to 43 - Advanced and Basic Medical System now optional

Tactical Proving Grounds Added

Tactical Valtatie 5, Finland Added

Tactical Helvantis, Germany Added

More Slight MCC Default Tweaks

RHS Explosive Specialists Added To All Missions - All missions now should have Explosive Specialists now.

Opfor and Independant Forces Added to Tactical Fallujah, Full forces added to Tactical Fallujah with 81 slots now like all the other missions.

I'm still working on a solution for having ACE 3 and TFAR optional with keeping the settings required for those running the full mod set. I will try and have them available next update, or I will abandon the idea altogether.

Hey Rekkless, 


Love the maps.


Just tried to load up the Australia one on dedicated and am getting endless Mission Tactical Australia read from bank.

Ok Yomato, Cheers for the heads up


We haven't used the Australia map in a very long time so it is pretty much the only mission I have done no testing on. I will redownload Australia and get the maps sorted asap and make a advanced map for it too.

*Edit* I tried recreating your error on our server and couldn't quite get what you were talking about. Can you please be more specific what exactly is happening?

Hey mate I'll give it another test tonight I'll disable all unneeded mods and give u more info if there are any dramas. Cheers

So while some might consider it too soon for an update, I've completely made a new Tactical Australia map and included and Tactical Australia Advanced mission which incorporates the advanced ACE 3 medical system and advanced ballistics. Also I'm not sure why it took me so long but I've made a Tactical Bornholm and Tactical Bornholm Advanced Mission. They all appear to be working fine but I want to double check first with this error Yomato26 is speaking of, so if I can replicate it and sort it I will then release the update.

So with these two extra maps and 3 extra missions it will put the Tactical Map Pack up to 46 Missions spanning 23 maps, which is pretty cool.

I am getting an error on Tactical Bornholm that seems to be related to RHS Escalation with their US Marines, it is a mod based error so I'm sure the developers of RHS are aware of it and will fix the error in the next RHS update.

But like I said if I can replicate the error or at least be sure the error has been sorted with this new Tactical Australia mission I will then release it.

For those groups and people not running Australia or Bornholm there will unlikely be any updates to the other missions in the pack so if you want to keep Tactical Map Pack 1.05 then by all means you can.

Also if anyone has any map requests please let me know.

I've taken a look at the following maps and decided against spending the time developing a mission based on the fact the maps are so work in progress:



Chernobyl Zone

Wake Island
Diego Garcia

Hindu Kush Island

None of them with the slight exception of Esseker really seemed like they were worth making a mission for. But if anyone really wants one I can make it pretty easily and release it in a future release. Also if these maps or any others come out or get significantly improved upon I'll make a Tactical Zeus / MCC Template for it.

Rekkless, replied to your PM. New version works perfectly.


Old version had an issue with a dependancy on ACE3. I confirmed from RPT Log.


New version is great though.

Awesome to hear. I'll post up an updated version of the pack shortly with the included working Australia and newly developed Bornholm mission.


I read your email, it looks like you aren't running ACE 3 or TaskForce Radio (Which you do not need to run to play the mission) but if you aren't running ACE 3 and want the save gear on respawn feature to work you have to manually turn it on in MCC.

For the mission by default we use the save gear feature in ACE 3 as it works a fair bit better than the MCC version. So by default the MCC version is turned off.

You can enable the MCC Save Gear feature in the MCC control interface by pressing CTRL+Delete and logging in to the MCC Console you will see Save Gear as part of the mission settings.

Any chance to add my Isla Duala & Panthera to the pack? Thanks.


Yeah sure, I will take a look at it.


Any ideas on who would be the best for the independant side? For Isla Duala I'm think African Militia but I'm not sure for Panthera, perhaps just regular insurgents?

Nice to see non ACE version and I'll be testing some of these out. I already posted to the Steam Bornholm mission. It is not loading. Getting an error probably because AiA not loaded. The page does not list it as required. I'm not sure why it would be as Bornholm loads up fine without AiA so probably left in your mission.sqm by accident as required.
