Drug Traffickers

Situation:
An independent guerrilla faction, Syndikat is a local crime organization
wtih deep roots on Tanoa. Made up of armed thugs and ex-paramilitaries, this faction

Recent reconnaissance found alot of activity around the Bala Airstrip and the peninsula
we've discovered an undercover drug smuggling operation, their using the planes
there to import and export drugs.
The forces on the peninsula include roaming infantry patrols, patrol boats, armed

destroy the planes, fuel tank, and fuel trucks at the airfield, destroy the ammo & drug caches

Watch out for the patrols, you may want to go silent and at night on this one,

Thanks!

All you need is the Apex DLC and your good to go.

Ya man when your ready to go Arma again the jungle awaits 😉

 

There still might be some tweaking and or adjustments that need to be done in the mission, like one thing that concerns me

the most is the AI in boats, and in the vehicle patrols, i want their spotting distance to be decent so that they would engage from afar, not like

from across the map or anything unrealistic but if your like within 300-400m of them and they get direct LOS of you then they would

open up on you.

 

    Outside that, im pondering adding an exfil and then end the mission that way instead of currently where

when you complete all the tasks then the mission ends.  With the exfil i want to instill some fear in the player as they drive down the road

and their friends are in the back and shooting at enemies far behind them, lobbing grenades, then they reach either an local FOB or a location

they are to meet to get lifted off the island.

 

Just a note here

What i said here in the features list, is if you have a fak or medkit in your gear then if you get killed, you can

revive yourself, at the same time you'll heal yourself, so when your playing solo and you have these you can keep playing, if

not you'll be forced to respawn, but when you get to the respawn screen you can choose which player spawn or camp you want to spawn at.

 

Also when you do die and do choose to respawn, 2 things happen:

1. Any weapons, gear, clips, grenades, ect,. anything that you used, or haven't will be saved apon respawn.

     So when you get back to a player camp or spawn back at a player spawn you chose, you'll have

      everything as you had it when you died.

 

2. Also your body where you died at will delete, so looting your own corpse is not possible.

Notes

Guys i hope you understand that the mission is meant to be played on a server.

Either through MP lan or on a dedicated, as you can see in the video, if you want to play solo then do it through

mp lan unless you have a server you can use.

 

        You can choose what slot, and change what parameters like the time of day, the weather,

stamina/fatigue, grass density, weapon sway and recoil.

 

Also other aspects to the mission like:

- Respawn (cant do that in singleplayer)

- You can choose what player starting camp you want to start at or respawn too you can

recruit AI and even access arsenal there as well.

 

- Your weapons, gear, clips, grenades, gear items, uniform, all save on respawn

- Your body will delete on respawn

==============

I updated the workshop page with an adjustment in tags and the mission will no longer show under the

Singleplayer ----> Scenarios

Understand its not a "singleplayer" mission though you can play it solo or with friends. If you need to take a break from the mission but

want to return where you left off and keep playing then just respawn back to one of the player starting camps.

=============

Reason why i'm stating this is because i had a couple comments on the workshop page one asking:

"Every teammate-to-be in a separate squad - is it intentional for single-player version or just an oversight?"

Of course i didn't really understand what he was talking about but realizing it after that he was playing the mission

through the singleplayer/scenarios part of the menu and not through mp lan or on a server.

 

   In mp the other playable units arent standing there i have it set disabledAI,

so until recently as i posted on my profile i discovered that if you add the singleplayer tag to your workshop mission

it will literally put your mission under the Singleplayer ----> Scenarios tab on the main menu of the game which i had no

idea about.

 

Hope players of my mission understand what kind of mission their playing, mp lan imo has more function and features

then if you played a mission in singleplayer, in SP you cant change the weather, or time, or stamina, or weapon sway ect,.

unless you script it to have that, imo mp parameters are more efficient means to do that, then spend an extra month codeing

stuff in which im not a coder, i know the very basics if that.

 

Any questions or problems, feedback, even ideas, just ask i'll respond as soon as i can. Cheers!

Update

v1.1
- added initPlayerLocal.sqf script that adds code that enables the parameters for
weapon recoil and sway to work as previously the parameters did not work.

(this may still not work, needs more testing)

- updated the intro text you see on the screen when the mission starts.
- renamed player spawn to player camp.
- removed an object that was inside another at the airfield.
- removed some misc objects, and adjust others in every building that had objects.
- adjusted sandbag wall at north player camp as it was partially blocking the door.
