    Pilgrimage - Ported

    NOTE: As of 19 August 2019, I will no longer be updating this forum. This is due to the forum becoming locked every time I update it. It is just untenable. Feel free to continue posting in the comments. The excellent single player mission by Rydygier was originally set on Altis. Official ports were provided for Chernarus, Lingor and Bornholm and links to those missions can be found on the Pilgrimage topic. Rydygier is currently busy with real life but has given permission for players to port the mission to other maps. The purpose of this page is to provide links to the unofficial ports of the mission that have been kept up to date. Some early ports have not been updated and may no longer work, so will not be featured here. When porting some players will add their own preferences into the mission, so they may vary slightly from the official missions and have extra features. Some maps, especially landlocked terrains, will require different mechanics to end the mission. The following missions have been updated to the latest version of Pilgrimage (1.95) Common Links - CUP Terrains - Core, CBA_A3 **** IMPORTANT NOTE - On landlocked terrains, where you start with a vehicle, you NEED that VEHICLE to finish the mission **** Al Rayak (Requirements CUP Core, G.O.S Al Rayak) - Al Rayak by Alky Lee Altis (Requirements - Cessna 185 Skywagon, Real World Weather, Advanced Rappelling ) - Altis by Pvt Partz (Notes) Anizay (Requirements - Anizay, CUP Core) - Anizay by Major Stiffy Australia (Requirements - Australia) Australia by Alky Lee Beketov (requires CUP Core, Beketov) Beketov by Major Stiffy Cambodia Real (Requirements - Apex, Prei Khmaoch Luong , Unsung Vietnam War Mod 3.2 , CUP Units 1.9.1, CUP Weapons 1.9.1, CUP Vehicles 1.9.1 , CBA 3.4.0.170627 , Asian Factions for CUP , Advanced Repelling ) - Cambodia REAL by Pvt Partz (Notes) Chernarus Redux (requires CUP Core, Chernarus Redux) Chernarus Redux by Major Stiffy *** New *** CLA Clafghan (Requires CUP Core, CLA Clafghan) CLA Clafghan by Major Stiffy Dingor (Requires CUP Core, Lingor + Dingor Island) Dingor by Alky Lee Isla Duala (Requires CUP Core, Isla Duala) Isla Duala by Alky Lee Kujari (Requires CUP Core, Kujari) Kujari by Vafana Kujari by Major Stiffy Lingor (Requires CUP Core, Lingor + Dingor Island) Lingor by Major Stiffy Lythium (requires Lythium, JBad Buildings) - Lythium by Major Stiffy Livonia (Requires Contact DLC) - Livonia by Vafana Malden - Malden by Alky Lee Namalsk ( Requirements - Namalsk , Namalsk CUP Replace (Rail Patch), Namalsk Light Patch V2 ) - Namalsk by Pvt Partz (Notes) Napf - (Requires CUP Core , Napf) - Napf by Alky Lee Panthera - (Requires CUP Core, Island Panthera) - Panthera by Alky Lee Rosche - (Requires Rosche, MBG Buildings, CUP Core) - Rosche by Major Stiffy Staszów - (Requires CUP Core, CBA_A3, IFA3_AIO_Lite) - Staszów by Pvt Partz (Notes) Summa - (Requires CUP Core, Summa) - Summa by Major Stiffy Tanoa - Tanoa by Vafana Taunus - (Requirements - Taunus, Arma's Nature, CUP Terrains Complete, Eden Editor Objects) - Taunus by Pvt Partz (Notes) Vidda - (Requirement - Vidda ) - Vidda by Pvt Partz (Notes) The following missions still use an earlier version of Pilgrimage (1.95 beta 1) Altis - Altis by Major Stiffy Cambodia (Requires Prei Khmaoch Luong | ព្រៃខ្មោចលង ) - Cambodia by Major Stiffy Chernarus (Requires CUP Core) - Chernarus by Major Stiffy (Requires Open Chernarus) Chernarus Winter (Requires CUP Core, Chernarus Winter) - Chernarus Winter by Major Stiffy (Requires Open Chernarus), Chernarus Winter by Alky Lee Kerama Islands (Requires Kerama Islands & CUP Core) - Kerama Islands by Major Stiffy Kobbvatn (Requires Kobbvatn, CUP Core, CUP Terrains - CWA, CUP Terrains - Maps, Xin_Ponds, ) - Kobbvatn by Major Stiffy Malden - Malden by A2012V, Malden by Major Stiffy Sahrani (Requires CUP Terrains - Core, CUP Terrains - Maps) -- Sahrani by Major Stiffy,, Sahrani port by Vafana Stratis - Stratis by Major Stiffy Tanoa - Tanoa by rsoftokz, Tanoa by Major Stiffy Tembelan (Requires Tembelan) - Tembelan by Major Stiffy Vidda (Requires Vidda) - Vidda by Major Stiffy CO-OP Altis by Major Stiffy (wip 10) Cambodia by Major Stiffy Chernarus by Major Stiffy Chernarus Redux by Major Stiffy Lingor by Major Stiffy Lythium by Major Stiffy & Pvt Partz Malden by Major Stiffy Stratis by Major Stiffy Tanoa by Major Stiffy Other BI Forum Topics Pilgrimage, Silent---Unseen by Pvt Partz Pilgrimage Ported Variations by rsoftokz SP-COOP Pilgrimage TANOA Edition by rsoftokz Update Log
  2. TPW Mods doesn't modify game files. To uninstall it, there is a folder in your main Arma folder which should be called @TPW Mods and also a userconfig folder which will contain a folder called TPW Mods. There should not be any TPW Mod folders elsewhere in the main Arma 3 folder. Just delete the two folders @TPW Mods and the TPW Mods folder from userconfig and that will completely uninstall it.

    Pilgrimage - Ported

    I was at a vantage point overlooking Chernogorsk trying to survey the area. “Truck, 100m” - there was a truckload of LDF in the trees. I didn’t know there was a CSAT checkpoint out of sight round the next corner. Mortar rounds were landing all around. Two CSAT fireteams came towards us. Then an AAF fireteam came from the opposite direction, There was also another CSAT checkpoint on the lower area with the Stomper near to it, looking a bit disabled but still alive, with an off-road crashed into the back of it. All I had was a tree for cover, and nowhere to go. That kept me busy for a while.

    Took the mission to the end with 3 major battles and 27 reverts. No major issues, Everything seems to be working and CUP have released a stable version of the map which won't be updated as frequently. So I have put the ported mission on the Steam Workshop

    I've been testing it. Turned everything up to 100% and FPS performance has been OK although I haven't been into any towns yet. It's only my performance that has been poor. Jeez I've been dying a lot. Had to deal with a squad that had the higher ground. Killed them all except for one which was the marksman somewhere in the trees. I don't know how many times he one shotted me. I have seen one checkpoint. I know there is an airfield just over the next hill because I can hear the gunship taking off. Luckily they sent an AA team in an Ifrit which I have now captured so next time I will be prepared.

    The CUP Team have brought out an update to Chernarus called Chernarus 2020 which includes updated enterable buildings. Haven't tried it too much but it looks good. I wondered if Pilgrimage would work on it, and it looks like it does. Everything seems to be there except for checkpoints maybe. I've done a rough port for testing where nothing has been changed from Rydygier's version. If anyone wants to test it, the pbo is at https://www.dropbox.com/s/ogeta8ta8q3iquf/Pilgrimage_2020.cup_chernarus_A3.pbo?dl=0 It requires the Dev CUP versions of Core and Maps 2.0
  7. I started with a fresh download of TPW and RHSPKL ran without any problems, although I did have quite a few modules turned off. My hpp file below.

    Arma 3 Apex: Old Man Feedback

    The only update I have had was for Ace. As BI have gone away for the Xmas holidays I would not expect any updates for Old Man.

    Arma 3 Apex: Old Man Feedback

    Only played a few hours so far, but I am having difficulty reading text on the map markers, so I'm not really sure what some of the markers mean. I am using trial and lots of errors at times. Also, when I receive a telephone call and I'm driving, I have to stop the vehicle and turn off the engine to hear what is being said. Muting the engine noise for the duration of the call would useful. (These could just be because I am blind and deaf) The dogs barking at the house is really annoying. It would be more immersive if they were quiet and only barked when enemies are nearby. The incessant radio chatter when attacking enemy positions is really distracting as well as being repetitive. I thought it was good at first, but the novelty has worn off very quickly. The chatter should be used more sparingly, and the language should reflect the enemies being faced rather than being a mixture of Chinese, French, etc. I've found that the enemy bodies aren't persistent. I attacked a CSAT squad but a QRF turned up. Before I could deal with them, the original bodies were sinking into the ground in front of my eyes. Whilst this may be necessary in multiplayer, it does not need to be so aggressive in singleplayer. Bodies could be left around longer and shouldn't disappear within 600m of the player. When assigning a task, the task isn't being highlighted on the map. I also am unsure of the mechanics of using a sleeping bag to save/rest. Some better explanation would be useful. Just a few early observations. When I save and resume the mission all map markers placed by me are gone.

    [SP] HETMAN: War Stories

    Using the editing module to hide the terrain object will hide the wall but AI pathfinding doesn't always recognise that there is a gap. By hiding part of the wall and part of the fence I was able to get AI to go through on a simple MOVE waypoint. This could provide some fierce action at these pinchpoints. Just need to pick some strategic points to do so.

    There is a border crossing mod https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1728352565 or should be able to hide things in the editor, but the biggest stumbling block is the raised obstacles which may still be a problem

    I have started with Weferlingen (Summer) but not recommended for Whole Map mission. I had the two sides on different sides of the Iron Curtain. Although OPFOR could cross, BLUFOR couldn't so when OPFOR retreated, that was pretty much the end, but a moral victory if nothing else.

    Quick question about the invisible officers. I was trying out the wip8 version and an enemy officer marker showed up on the map although I couldn’t actually see them. If I was to flatten that area, would it kill them?

    I am loving the whole map mode. There are a lot more units being moved around by helicopter without trying to land in the enemy strongpoint, which provides much more immersion. In the couple of missions I have tried so far, time to first contact has been around 20 minutes which is good. The battlefield is much more uncertain as to enemy positions so keeps you on edge. Even waiting for the battlegroup to move up is edgy especially as an enemy armoured column comes over the horizon at you. One thing I have noticed is that the morale of the players side drops without reason and we surrender just as we are pressuring the enemy strongpoint. I don’t know if it’s a bug or just the leader losing his bottle. It’s probably too early to say for sure. Looking forward to trying wip5.

    It’s not a bug ... it’s a feature.

    Tried porting to Fallujah and Livonia maps. In both cases initialisation failed due to insufficient locations found. Tried some normal battles on Livonia (Looters vs Spetsnaz which works in 1.09) but the mission hangs at loading screen with this error EDIT: Tried wip1 and wip2 missions on Altis for normal battles. wip1 works, it's just wip2 that doesn't work.

    [SP] HETMAN: War Stories

    Gave the whole map mode a trial run using Altis in the editor and without mods. Battle size was set to medium and starting FPS was 25 FPS and which later increased to 35+ FPS. Opfor started in Molos. Blufor started in Neri, so about 30km apart. Playing as an OPFOR squad, we were picked up by helicopter and dropped outside Paros with Paros as our objective. Moved into Paros unopposed, and other units joined us by road to establish control. It was over 90 minutes before the first contact in Paros when a Hunter drove into town. There were losses on both sides but the Hunter crew was killed. Further contacts were had in Anthrakia before it all went quiet. I had to seek out a squad and engage them from 600-800m. Blufor were flanking left and right and popping up behind the front lines and inflicting casualties. I spotted one of their officers who was on his own so I hunted him down and killed him. The two Blufor officers were Brute and Idiot. Brute suffered zero casualties so was probably still in Neri while the idiot was attacking and was the one I killed. Opfor were Dilatory and Genius, but Genius only had a small force. I did notice that units patrolled and garrisoned in buildings, and that nobody suffered any losses at the start which was unusual. Blufor also established a small presence at the objectives on their side of the island whilst Opfor didn't, but that may have been strategic decisions made by the different officer personalities.

    I have had missions that have continued until the last man has died. The message is that the enemy withdrew. It may be that there are units spawned else on the map. I have found that sometimes units do spawn some distance away and make their way to the AO, but sometimes some stay away. The new experimental version seems to work well. The only comment is that the factions are all intermingled. It would be better if they worked as self contained factions perhaps with one attacking from the flank . It was wonderful to mix CSAT with Spetsnaz and have Persian, Chinese and Russian voices on the radio even though a Russian got Friendly Fired by a CSAT soldier.

    That sounds like a short patrol in a holding pattern, often at mission start but sometimes can carry on through the mission. You can always team switch to a more active role if you want. (U on the keyboard)

    I think it’s to do with the number of hyperlinks within it. I’ve tried to reduce the number but each port has at least 2 links. EDIT: Currently 103 links within the post

    I did PM Roadkill previously when the forum was hidden and he didn't get the message for several days and he told me to use the report to moderator thing which obviously hasn't worked this time. I PM'd a different moderator, but he still hasn't read the message after a week. The funny thing this only started happening this year. It was fine before that. People can still post their own links to the forum but I will avoid updating the first post.
