Hello, I create this topic to inform you that a new persistent mission for dedicated server using the ravage mode is now available!!! The scenario is a team versus team on the map Ruha. I will describe step by step the goal of the mission. Mission File : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1EkEUWnESTgwZdBKbatfm1xI8vYtjCxhk After 68h of testing on dedicated server here the performance result : So its highly optimised, all the main features are spawned, simulation of AI, static object, weaponholder.... are perfectly managed. Solid 50 server fps/Low bandwith usage with 220 AI Primary objective and relating information Quick description : -Each team got a protected main base (off map) and a contested outpost (center of the map). The main goal is to evolve its 2 bases by bringing the cargo box that can be found on random crash sites. The player must find a truck to be able to load the crate then bring them in a predefined area (at base). Every 6 crate there is an upgrade (fortification, AI guard...). Note, this cargo box can be also used to stock loot. So the main objective is to survive, secure and upgrade the base, then raid the enemy base to steal the cargo box and equipement. Every player will be informed if any hostiles forces (player or AI) are approaching the base. Additional information about the main base : The main base (out of map) is protected except that it is not 100% protected, the enemy side got 5 minute to go trough a 800m radius then come back out of this radius, if not they are killed instantly. So if the main base is upgraded its impossible to raid it. The main base is also the respawn area, there is a map where the player can choose an insertion point, the insertion point are refresh at every server restart. Additional information about the contested outpost : The outpost didn't benefit from any special protection, so the player must hurry up to upgrade and defend this place. Take note that the outpost are closer from everything (loot, crashsite, point of interest...). The 2 ennemy outpost are close to each other to facilitate encounters between players and thus create hot zones. Secondary Stuff Secondary Camp : There is more than 10 static secondary camp on the map, they are hidden and the player must find them, this camp are identifiable cause they got the same set up, an abandoned house, 2 trailer and a white CUP flag. This little place are usefull to hide and secure loot, if any player is able to occupy a secondary camp for more than 1 hour (that also work with a friendly AI), a small team of friendly AI survivor will come to guard the area, there is no side restriction so if a blufor come then occupy the area for 1 h a small team of blufor survivor will guard, if an opfor player kill the guard then occupy the area for 1 h an opfor team will guard the area and vice-versa. Take note this zone can be triggered only 1 time for each side and the player didn't recive any information if the area is under attack. Base Building : There is a simple base building system, there is only few crate that can be found (mainly in warhouse), where the player can select from a panel of asset to build is own safe place, there is no restriction a player can build any asset anywhere or provide more fortification for the main base or secondary camp. AI recruitement : Every friendly AI are recruitable, make sure they got a first aid kit in their inventory to be able to revive you. Other playable unit : Playable Zombie : There is 2 playable Z slot if the player want have fun by doing Zombies stuff, they can jump and got a higher HP than the normal infected. Asian Bandit : There is 4 playable slot, Asian Bandit are the main AI roaming faction, they didn't get any base, protected area or secondary camp, so the player bandit respawn randomly on the map but they got a huge advantage, they can recruit any Asian roaming AI and can approach the crashsite without being attacked by the guard. Renegade : There is 4 playable slot, Renegade are hostile to everyone, this playable slot was added for the lonewolf player or for a more hardcore gameplay. Take note this Playable slot got a forced identity, so the playable Asian Bandit have an Asian face and speack Chinese, the Renegade have a ravage renegade face and speack french. Danger and weird encounter The player will be confronted to an hostile environement, horde of infected, bandit, dynamic radioactive area, radioactive rain, highly dangerous and unidentified threat (no spoil). Information on the loot system There 3 loot system in this scenario : -Ravage loot (ability to search in box, trashpile...) -Loot on the floor, they are part of easy loot but limited loot, this loot are generated only on server restart, so it will more difficult to get easy stuff over the time. -Custom loot where the player can search in closed woodshack structure, train (wagon), boat wreck, plane wreck, big cargo...

Vandeanson's Apocalypse - the Mod: A "plug and play" mod that will spawn various sites and AI, fully randomly placed that will be dynamically de and respawning for ongoing survival action! NOTE: This is not a MISSION. This is a dynamic site and event spawner, that runs on top of any mission that you start while the mod is active. It spawns in sites based on player position, terrain and your settings (to change settings, you must edit your mission in Eden Editor - > Settings - > Addon Options). Never again will it be pointless, dull and boring to run around in armas beautiful forrests, just because all the loot and action is stuck in cities and other remains of civilisation! My mod will spawn in bandit camps to raid, small survivor hideouts to find and loot in the deepest forest, crashed helicopters that should definitely be searched before other survivors get there, ferocious packs of wild dogs that will jump you in the dark or animals to hunt for survival. Find a tame horse as a compagnion and tie it up next to your homebase while setting up barricades and boobie traps to fend off attacks against your newly claimed home. Zombies just got deadlier with the infection feature. When getting hit, you might catch a deadly infection that will drain your stamina and lifeforce over time. Stack up on anti virus pills to cure yourself! You will never rest easy, knowing that your steps may be watched from far and the moment you get too comfortable at a place, bandits pick up your trace and hunt you down! VANDEANSONS APOCALYPSE (STEAM DOWNLOAD) INSTALLATION: 1. Subscribe to the mod and activate it and CBA_A3 in the A3 launcher Whenever you start any mission (self made or from steam) , the mod will start to spawn in sites according to the default settings. 2. to adjust VA settings, open the mission you want to edit, or create a new one in Eden Editor, go to Settings -> Addon Options -> select the "VDA" options to see what you can change (there are a lot of options for customisation) 3. NOTE: the plane spawner requires you to place the following markers by default, else the planes spawn in the debug zone: "VD_PlaneMrkr_1,VD_PlaneMrkr_2,VD_PlaneMrkr_3,VD_PlaneMrkr_4". You may add or remove markers. 4. if you play on maps like chernarus, cover the empty terrain with large area markers and name them. enter the area markers name into the field under "VDA -1- General Settings" to blacklist that area from landsite spawns. 5. similar for shipwrecks and boats (cover inland lakes with additional area markers) so the shipwrecks and boats wont spawn in lakes inland. 6. Place your player and play. (Place the gamemaster module to check if the mod is working as ZEUS) FEATURES : - random and automatic position finder for all features. No marker placement needed (see INSTALLATION gor exceptions) - sites de and respawn after a adjustable time and while no player is close - Bandit Camps - Hideouts - Shipwrecks - Crashsites - Tradercamp (custom weapon attachment trader, custom trader for ravage respawn tent backpacks, all ravage traders) - AI Patrols - Animal Spawner (Goats & Sheep, can be gutted and eaten with the Ravage mod) - Spawners for Boats, Planes, Helicopters - Medical Sites - Zombie Infection Script for the RAVAGE mod (change the zombie parent if you want this to apply to other zombie mods) - JBDOG feral dog spawner - DBO Horses spawner (you need to subscribe to this mod separately, if you wish to use the spawn feature) - No Rest! spawner (checks if player stays at a place for too long, if so, might spawn AI hunters ) - loot spawns at all sites - Max Joiners melee weapon mod is automatically included in the loot economy and player equipper. AIs wont spawn with melee weapons however. This requires the max_melee weapons mod. No dependency is created. GENERAL: - dynamic simulation is enabled for all spawned AI and structures. Simulation is enabled based on your view distance settings minus fog, plus scoped view distance to save FPS - automated loot arrays based on active mods (e.g. CUP, RHS,... will be integrated into the features) - option to blacklist items from loot arrays - option to exclude Arma 3 Vanilla and DLC items from loot table - option to exclude various mod sub content (e. g. CUP Uniforms, or IFA3 Backpacks...) - adjustable AI equipper (or option to use Ravage Equipper) - adjustable player equipper (or option to use Ravage Equipper) - CBA_A3 Settings to tune features in Editor while making a mission - possibility to add blacklist area markers for land sites (e.g. Bandit Camps) and coastal sites (e.g. shipwreck and boats) - adjustable spawn ranges and despawn timers - MP compatible to my best knowledge, please report any issues - the default currency is the ravage money, fyi. Without ravage mod active, it will just not spawn without error - adjust the amount of sites/features that at spawn to your needs or disable specific features if you dont like it - plane spawner: the only feature that requires you to place markers, check the CBA3 settings for it. 4 markers are pre defined, you may add as many as you want and place such markers at airfields. All placed markers will be a potential spawn position for planes - This mod creates NO dependency! UPCOMING/PLANNED FEATURES: I have quite a bunch of ideas for new features and plan to improve and extend the mod going forward, no ETA gor such features however. AI Spawner: - AIscavengers that move from house to house in a city and then return to a hideout z nearby to drop off loot, then go back to scavenging - AI spawner in case players spend a lot of time at the e same place (e.g. Looting a city) - chance for AI groups in any feature to be military grade geared, rather than random low quality survivor gear - some sort of simple basebuilding, crafting and ressource gathering feature - a mission generator - optional loot economy (to fill buildings with loot) - option to include heroes survive - option to include zombies & demons (e.g. A ambient Z spawner) - fake underground sites such as bunkers or caves TO DO'S: - not all arrays are automated (automated means, items or structures of active mods are put into category for use in my script) - automate heli, plane, heliwreck, boat arrays based on active mods - automate inventory items REQUIREMENTS : Note that this mod requires CBA3. CUP Terrain Core is also recommended, as some structures from it are used. There is no dependency however. Ravage has been the inspiration for the mod and this mod is made with Ravage in mind. There is however no dependency, you can use the mod with our without Ravage. THANKS: Thanks to all the great guys on the BI forum for their help and advise. With special thanks to George Floros GR, Johnnyboy, Mr H., HazJ, Larrow, pierremgi, Haleks, Grumpyoldman, Gunter Severloh, the Ravage folks, all followers of my topic thread and anyone i might have forgotten right now. HELP TO IMPROVE: Please subscribe, rate and let me know any issue that might occur, I would appreciate receiving any feedback that helps me improve the mod. Cheers VD
