Overthrow Mod - dynamic revolution simulator (BETA) [SP/CO16]

Recommended Posts

D6JkGVw.jpg
 
Overthrow is a dynamic [SP/CO16] revolution simulator campaign built for ARMA 3.
 
Description:
  • Overthrow simulates undertaking a grass-roots revolution against an oppressive NATO occupation of your home. Altis, Tanoa (Apex required of course), and Malden are currently supported.
  • Start in a in a small town with nothing, and fight your way to remove the occupying NATO forces from the Island. 
  • There is no single way to Overthrow, which is what makes it exciting and unique. Head on combat, guerrilla tactics, or economic domination are all possible. ACE and CBA are required, and Advanced towing is integrated. Our overall focus is to ensure that all player actions matter, and that things behave generally as you would expect them to in the real world.

  • It was inspired by the great times we had playing the original "Antistasi" dynamic campaign. We would love you to help us test our mod, and help guide future development.

 
Updates (24 July 2017):
  • APEX no longer required, and an Altis, Malden campaigns have been added. Get ready for more community-map additions soon!
  • Current Version is 0.7.5.3, released 15th July 2017. Updates are coming out frequently as new features are added and fixes completed.

Thanks and sorry to hear that - we will look into your error rightaway (seems new). EDIT: I can't reproduce this, if you can provide any more info that would help.

 

For now, you could try starting a local MP server. Theres an in-game tutorial and a wiki on the Steam/Github pages to help you get started :)

Hey all! I'm the creator (posting rules hehe). Good to hear some feedback already! I'm not having any problems running it in SP however and an error in mission.sqm seems very strange indeed. Do you have the required addons CBA and ACE3?

Can you create an MP version for a dedicated server

 

Hi, it is designed for both single player and co-op style multiplayer games. It should run on a dedicated server just fine.

 

Unfortunately getting 40+ players on a public server to work together toward the common goal of "taking Tanoa back for the people" is not feasible at this stage.

 

The files you need to run Overthrow on a dedicated server can be downloaded from our Github page. If you need help in getting things set up, come and chat to us on Discord or Facebook.

It would have been nice if they had worked with a stringtable.xml

This sounds pretty good and I'll give it a try. Are there any plans for versions with occupying forces other than NATO? A present day version with, perhaps China as the occupying force would be awesome as well. I don't have a problem playing against NATO forces but I would like to see other options for variation in gameplay.

That would be nice, i would like to see CSAT or an OPFOR force.

Why not both? The current beta is focused on developing the beginning and mid-game challenges - protecting your homeland from other outside interests will form part of the end game. ;)

I find myself in a RED sector town.
Battle with Gang members and Police.

 

If I help the police, will they fire on me?
