(SP)ACE2 The Conqueror

Recommended Posts

And yet another mission. This is the second mission in a future Campaign, the first was Cutting All Ties. I will combine them in the future when more missions exist and I learn how to do it. Please help me test this one in the mean time.

Here's the first beta:

The Conqueror

Version: Beta v4.0

After assaulting a small bit of northern Podagrosk we have managed to hold enough territory to build a FOB closer to the main enemy positions. Now it's time to clear this country of the Insurgents. You need to clear the city of Berezniki and find and destroy the main Insurgent operating base and kill the Commander. There are also some side missions that can help you in your battle across the country.

At your disposal is a plethora of support options. Call in artillery and/or air support, get inserted to a location via fast rope, and recruit more troops. Use the Hybred HC System to create or merge teams/groups and use them to make your assault. There is also a Medevac just in case. Lastly, choose from an assortment of different weapons and vehicles to finish all objectives.

Features:

Mando Missiles

Group Link 4 Special FX Edition

Support Options:

-Air Support

-Para Drop

-Medevac

-Fast Rope

Well, I'm having an issue, but its not with your mission so much as it is ACE itself. In my ACE version I don't have a UH-60 or Mi-24 so it prohibits me from playing or looking at it.

Whoa.... You need to update it via the six updater. What's your version number? It says on the main A2 menu.

good configuration mission, lots of stuff, need quite some time to accomplish it. The defect is CPU unfriendly, I can only maintain 20frames,sometimes 17f ........

Nice job Manzilla, I like it. I especially like the fact that it is a longer mission and that you don't start in the middle of a firefight. I haven't finished it yet, but hopefully by tomorrow I can get it done. I just have to change my frame of mind as far as playing the mission. (I've been spending most of my time writing a campaign and have grown somewhat accustomed to knowing when something is going to happen in a mission. LOL)

But this is a nice change of pace. Thanks!

Edit- Once its finished I'll more than likely pick it apart a little, especially since you;'ve got some things going on that I am not to familiar with.

Thanks for the comments. I added a lot of support options that are very useful but they add a lot to the action menu. It's a bit much but I do like to use all this great stuff people make for us. Feel free to pick it apart all you want. That's the only way I learn to make missions. ;)

Yes that's the only problem. My computer is a beast, still, so I tend to forget about making it CPU friendly for all.

Mine's a small kitten.

Anyways, I pretty much download and try every SP mission out there (I go through phases with Arma, right now it's SP only, bored with the MP scene at the moment). To be honest, most missions get 5 or 10 minutes due to my short attention span.

Here's what I like about your mission...

I have spent over an hour messing around, trying different things. There is lots of stuff to use. You make good use of addons, and use lots of them (I have 149 mods downloaded, it's nice to see some in action). There are many ways to finish the objective, which I haven't done yet. I'm still messing around (I would lose a war fast).

I haven't played enough to nit pick yet. I just downloaded new version and am about to play some more. And this is my first SP mission 'review' so I'll try to give more feedback with some kind of ratings system... maybe.

Good job, thanks!

Just a quick a FYI, you'll need to add the FNC scopes as an addon requirement. No big deal. I just got the message when I tried to load.=)

Thanks bud. I seem to be fond of missions that I can just screw around with. I always like to have many options on hand. Hell this is the US Army, they got plenty off "toys". I tend to do the same thing as you. I've been playing this mission for days and I never get anywhere fast. I DL a ton of stuff as well so it's time I put some to use.

I hope people can get a hang of all the different features I've included. There's a ton of different support options and I really should put some info in game about it but I haven't gotten to that yet.

Enjoy it.

Ooooh that shouldn't be there. I'll have to remove it from the top of the mission.sqm. Not sure why that just started to appear. It never attached itself to one of my missions before.

Hello. I tried every version of your mission but I still have this error message: "Include file userconfig/MM/unit_array.hpp not found.

*edit Okay it isn't significant, I already solved this problem. Cheers

You need to look at the Medevac addon folder. In that folder is a file called "MM". In that file it has a user_config file.

What you need to do is copy the "MM" folder and place it into your "userconfig" file that is currently in your arma 2 directory. That master config file should have 2 "ACE" files in it already. Just copy the "MM" folder in with them and you should be good to go.

Exactly like he said. Check the Medevac ReadMe if you need more help with the install.

OK, not sure if this is me or the mission. But, I go through and complete all the tasks up to "Cut off communications". So, I go and attack the power station and eliminate the enemies there. I than use the satchel charges to blow up the transformers. They go Boom and I get a radio message saying something like "Good job, cutting off the communications will hurt the enemies ability to send reinforcements. Good work team."

Yet, the task does not complete.

do all of the buildings need to be taken out or just the transformers?

Hmmmm. Did you blow up both transformers? I'll have to check that trigger maybe I deleted the line to set the task to complete. You can still complete the mission with out that completed. It's just a side mission.

EDIT:

Good find my friend. I had the wrong task to set to succeed in that trigger. I'll have it fixed in the next version tomorrow.

OK, I am done and I will say, it was thoroughly enjoyable. Nice job and yes, you are correct, the mission ended fine without it being completed. If I were to recommend anything for the mission, maybe make the last task a little tougher. By the time I finally got to it, I had assembled a nice little army that was waiting at the gates. I took out the infantry that was south of the city and than took out the T-72 and that was it. Your defensive positions were good, I'm just thinking you could use a little more in town.

But Kudos dude, it was good!

Not a problem, glad I could help. (Does best "Godfather" impression, "There may come a time when you could return the favor")

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I completely agree with you. I'll add more enemies to the city. I had the same experience with the city as well. Hopefully I'll have a new version up today. Thanks again, I really appreciate the time you spent playing this mission.
