    co10 Escape

    The mission In this mission you and your squad was send out to scout the military presence on an enemy island in preparation for an invasion. But your squad got captured by local layalists and you are now held in an improvised prison awaiting enemy officers to arrive for questioning. But friendly insurgent managed to hide a backpack with weapons in your improvised prison. Your task is now to overwhelm the guards, escape the prison, find a map of the island, make contact with your HQ, reach the designated evacuation zone and escape the enemy island! The mission is fully dynamic. Every playthrough will be different. Also the mission is quite hard to beat completly. You will definitly fail at the first try. But the mission is meant to be played more than once (infact our squad plays it serveral times the week). About the mission Escape was first devloped by Engima of Östgöta Ops. for ArmA2. At that time me (NeoArmageddon) and Scruffy ported the mission to different islands and began customizing the mission. When ArmA3 was released, Vormulac and HyperZ made the effort to port the mission over to ArmA3. From that point on Scruffy and me improved and fixed the mission to the current state. Most of the scripts are replaced and were updated to A3 standards. At this point the mission can surely be considered a complete new A3 mission and not a port from A2. The the official version of this release is 1.10 Terrains and Mods We ported the mission to the following terrains: Altis Stratis Chernarus (CUP TP) Chernarus Summer (CUP TP) Sahrani (CUP TP) United Sahrani (CUP TP) SMD Sahrani Porto (CUPTP) Takistan (CUP TP) Bornholm Celle2 Podagorsk Isla Duala Esseker Isla Abramia Al Rayak Tanoa Winthera Lingor Dingor Malden (CUP TP CWR) Everon (CUP TP CWR) Kolgujev (CUP TP CWR) Nogova (CUP TP CWR) Malden 2035 Thirsk + Winter Australia Clafghan and more.... I lost track... For A2 terrains AiA TP works but I strongly suggest using the newer CUP TP! Also there are serveral flavours of the mission with different unit sets. At the moment there is a version without any mods called "Vanilla" (except the terrain you are on) and the following mods: RHS CUP APEX (DLC) Contact (DLC) Global Mobilization (CDLC) We tried to compose a unitset for every terrain that match the scenery. We plan to add more mods and terrains in the future but we also want to release the tools to port the mission. Release notes To port this missions with more than 15 different mod setups to more than 65 terrains (overall we have produced 580 missions) we used an autocompiler that merges one codebase and the different config files. With this huge amount of mission we were not able to check every mission. When one of the missions seems to behave different (broken start, missing units, etc) please post the missionname here in the thread and we will fix the problem ASAP. This mission was build for dedicated server use! For statistics and improving this mission at the end of each session (fail or win) the result of the mission is stored anonymous on a server. Version, terrain, playercount, session length, servername and type of mission ending is sent. No personal informations like IP, player names, etc are sent or stored. This function can be disabled in the parameters. Download Mirrors IMPORTANT: The workshop release is not packed as single mission but as an addon/mod with multiplayer missions in it. If workshop files (or addonfiles from complete pack) are used on a server, all players need the addon files. The missionfiles from the complete pack are the recommended DS installation and are downloaded automatically to all players connecting. Complete Pack 1.10 (newest Release) co10 Escape (Complete) 1.10 I recommend checking out the more up-to-date development version on Github (click here) Steam Workshop Addon Release Workshop release without mods Workshop release with Apex Workshop release with CUP Workshop release with RHS Complete Pack 1.9 co10 Escape (Complete) 1.9 Complete Pack 1.8.1 Hotfix co10 Escape (Complete) 1.8.1 Complete Pack 1.7.5 @ Armaholic Armaholic Mirror (Version 1.7.5) Bleeding Edge/Development Version: The newest development version are in our Github (format Dev_Year-Month-Day): Download latest development archives Keep in mind that the versions that are builded automatically are considered bleeding edge versions. That means the changes are completely untested (actually we use those versions for our internal tests), may break the mission, arma, your PC or even the world.

    prei_khmaoch_luong is a custom terrain. You need it (obviously): The map from VN is Cam Nao Lam. You don't need this. Remove it. The params stick if you are logged in as admin and change the first parameter to "Use below and save".

    Sorry, my crystal ball is in repair so you have post these errors.
  4. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    There is no cleanup (the function cleans comcenters and sourroundings). If you add boats to the mission.sqm they should be ingame. I suspect the packing of the mission.sqm into the final PBO is where you have a problem.

    co10 Escape

    co10 Escape is released under APL-SA. As far as I understand, that means they must disclose the changes they made to the mission.
  6. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    DLC port is already in the dev build since DLC was released. To get the newest dev build, you can use the devpacker: http://escape.anzp.de/EscapeDevPacker1.7z
  7. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    Normally not, but there are two packages: Contact Platform (free an probably already installed on your server) and Contact DLC (Enoch, Premium). Make sure both uploaded on your server and are loaded when starting.
  8. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    Your server seems to be loaded without Contact content, just with the terrain. Just guessing that o_t_patrol_soldier_a_f is a class exlusive to contact DLC.

    Even with the settings set to nearest spawn distance one should not see AI spawning except when in very open terrain. Most scripts/missions I know spawn AI in a ~500+ radius which is normally more than enough, even with viewdistance larger than that. Escape uses normally much larger values with spawning of city patrols much further away from the player than ambient patrols.
  10. Have you seen that under "Export/Import" there is a button "Import Static" which toolstip reads "Import all mission/script placed static objects into MB project."? Sounds like that is exactly what you need.
  11. Try with an empty map and just one object first. MB's last update is a few years back, so no promise an update of A3 didn't broke anything in it.
  12. Maybe try { [_x] call MB_fnc_InitObject; } foreach allMissionObjects "All"; https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/allMissionObjects Biki should be the first place you should look when something does not work as intended.
  13. Looks like a generic error. You probably have quotation marks somewhere around the code I posted. Make sure you copied it directly or even better type it into A3 by hand. Upload your rpt with the error somewhere. Last time I checked code I posted worked as intended.
  14. Play the mission -> start Mapbuilder -> run code -> ??? -> Profit
  15. There is, just run this in the code execution window (or a script/trigger/whatever) when previewing the mission: { [_x] call MB_fnc_InitObject; } foreach allMissionObjects;

    In my optinion these are the best Escape sessions 😁 Yes, the extraction marker turns into a red cross of the helis are destroyed and/or abort the evac.
  17. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    That is correct. Make sure the the LZ is clear before calling in the evac. Check for armed road blocks and other enemy bases near the evac. Some mods have a strong AA focus and makes this especially important.
  18. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    That is NOT the correct way to make options stick through restarts! Editing the PBO is not recommended at all! Just set the first option in the params to "Use settings below and save (settings will be restored on mission restart)" and set the others to your liking. After a mission/restart arma defaults the first param to "Load previously saved settings" which tells the mission to look for previously saved settings. Important: The multiplayer lobby params will not reflect what will be actually used by the mission! This can be checked in the inmission briefing under settings. If you watn to use your own params, just set the params once, select "Use settings below and save" and never touch them again in the lobby! That is actually a really bad idea and complety disables the parameter storage feature. Don't to that! No wonder people are having problems with the params and feel the need to edit the pbos. Also make sure, you have not changed the setting with CBA. CBA settings is given priority over lobby params.

    Updated the SOGPF release with some improvements. Dev release ID is 4fe249ab. https://github.com/NeoArmageddon/co10_Escape/releases/tag/4fe249ab

    That script and a custom version were already part of Escape for testing but AI pathfinding in buildings is incredibly performance heavy on the server and renders the mission in big cities even more unplayable. So it is unlikely this will ever be added again. But there is some limited building spawning for bases already in. That can be, for example seen in some comcenters and vehicle depots. You can also add mods like VCOM to your server and AFAIK AI will then use buildings for cover.

    A dev release containing the new SOGPF CDLC release is out on Github: https://github.com/NeoArmageddon/co10_Escape/releases/tag/e5f1a95 The port to the awesome Cam Lao Nam terrain is probably one of our biggests ports yet, with 414 patrol spawn zones and 81 handselected comcenter positions. Have fun and make sure to report all bugs like missing classnames etc here or on the escape Github.
  22. This happens when a terrain is overwriting the base world class from Arma2 with pre lighting update. As CUP Terrains restores backwards compatibility for A2 maps, it provides a fixed CfgWorld class, but if an addon overwrites this base class with unfixed Arma2 config values, the light breaks for all other maps relying on our fixed. This is not a CUP Terrains problems, but a problem of other terrains/addons loading outdated config values and overwriting A2 base classes (which is not needed for a standalone terrain released for Arma3).
  23. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    No, you don't need to exactly replace the classes if it is an array. The error arises from a failed spawn: Unknown classname -> no vehicle spawned, script can't find the heli and throws the error. The reason could be either you made a typo in the unitclasses.sqf so it is not read correctly by the mission or you made an array out of a single string. Could also be that the mod you are trying to add is not loaded on the server properly.
  24. NeoArmageddon

    co10 Escape

    I think what you are actually looking for is the parameter menu in the multiplayer lobby. You can access it in the top right of the lobby screen when you are a logged in admin or selfhosting the mission.

    People asked for me to pack dev snapshots of escape again, but as I am fairly lazy I wrote a tool that downloads the current escape of Github and packs all configured escapes. As this directly packs into the PBO format, it is much faster compared to the old python compiler. It can be downloaded here: http://escape.anzp.de/EscapeDevPacker1.7z It needs .Net 4.7.2 runtime. Usage: Extract into a folder, run exe, select output folder, wait a moment and copy all mission pbos you need into your/your servers mpmission folder. Please note that the missions compiled with this tool are from the devbranch and may have yet unknown bugs or are unplayable. Known bugs: Some mission names are parsed incorrectly.
