The darker the circle the more it has sustained damage to the infrastructure. Since 1.06.00 the cities have a chance of sustaining damage each time it changes ownership. And if the city has sustained damage recently you have a chance of seeing some pillars of smoke emanating from the ruins. Just an effect for immersion at the moment.

Ah, it was mentioned in the changelog. I was looking for "circles" though, not "auras" 😛


Awesome feature btw

Are the Nato faction artillery units having issues or am I just doing something wrong? The M4 Scorcher batteries in particular just announce they're unable to fire 100% of the time, and then become unavailable for the rest of the mission. MLRS shots also sometimes fail to show up, but I don't have a consistent way to reproduce the issue.

Yes, having the same exact issue here.  Sometimes it works, and most of the time unfortunately the option to use artillery says "Unable to fire" then the artillery option disappears completely as if the artillery is destroyed right after the call.  Not using any heavy AI mods, only LAMBS Danger and CF_BAI.  Thanks for any help.

 

Just wanted to add, this is easily my favorite scenario KingN, keep up the outstanding work Sir.

The AI controlled artillery has sometimes problems firing at the target using the CommandArtilleryFire command even though the artillery piece is intact, manned, within range and it has ammo. The reason is beyond my understanding and it's very random so it's hard to track what exactly leads to the problem. The problem apparently lies in the AI code and/or the unit class configs of the artillery piece so not much I can do about it. The artillery unit being removed from the available artillery is a feature to prevent reassigning fire missions again to the same unit that failed to fire previously. If it was the only/last artillery piece then the artillery type becomes unavailable.

I just took the time to take a better look at the artillery problems reported. It seems there IS an issue with artillery types that weren't using the standard ammunition. For some reason the AI wasn't able to select it even though it had some. I made some changes and now it works. It's wierd, the special rounds worked earlier but I guess at some point I went and fiddled with it. Be aware that this doesn't fix the random rarer issues I stated above though, which is another story.

 

Missions updated:

Version 1.06.04
- FIXED: Artillery types using special ammunition not firing

Going to send you a donation for this scenario, I literally set aside time everyday to get into it.  Just let me know where to send, and thanks again.

Yeah, hadn't played this since A2 at least just fired it up today and its fantastic. Many thanks for the work! (If you got bored and wanted to add some brits to the playable faction list that would be cool 😛).

I am still having the issue of Artillery not firing when playing the Malden mission.

 

But I also wanted to state that this is one of the best MP missions in Arma 3 period. Up there with BI's own Old Man, Western Sahara CDLC's Extraction Mode, SOG's Mike Force and Vindicta/Antistasi.

 

Thank you and your whole team for making such a masterpiece. Everything from the UI to the way missions are set as a campaign speaks to the wonderful work, attention to detail and just the talent of the makers.

Thanks for the humbling words!

 

Are you sure you're running 1.06.04? For the NATO versions, SP Artillery was the one that was fixed and I just tested and it fired without a problem. And like I stated above, there is an occasional and very random problem with single artillery pieces that won't fire but unfortunately I haven't yet found why that is nor a solution to fix that.

I have some trouble with the fast travel point when using ground vehicule and mission are inside ennemy lines.

 

Often the point is very far from the objective and then transport is 1/ very long 2/ cross enemy that kill me

 

Is it by design to choose better approach or some kind of improvment possibility ?  (like option that could allow a  "maximum" of 2km between the fast travel point and the destination point)

The fast travel point is always in safe area with some distance to enemy territory. The point is never inside enemy territory, otherwise it would be cheating. There are some missions that are deliberately spawned deeper inside enemy territory when the task is for example escorting some VIP. They are meant to be travelled on foot and maybe do some "side mission" by doint things like raiding enemy positions that might be holding enemy intel or destroying enemy supplies (both yield additional progress points), or just try to avoid contact. However, there are some improvements I've made for the next update as I've noticed there are sometimes instances where the mission is unintentionally spawned too far away with only ground vehicles as valid transportation.
