DESCRIPTION OPEX: Opérations Extérieures (External Operations) is an immersive fully dynamical task generator introducing the French Army fighting against terrorist organizations all over the world ! AUTHOR'S NOTE Bonjour ! I have to be honest, OPEX has totally be inspired by MSO (Multi-Session Operations) from ArmA II (and all successors from ArmA III: Patrol Operations 3, ALiVE... which are inspired from code34's Warcontext mission), so all credits must go to their development teams. After I tried it, I thought the idea of a fully dynamical task generator was brilliant, but there was some features that was not perfectly fitting to what I was expecting and some others that was missing. Firstly, I tried to customize original MSO but I finally choose to rebuild everything from the scratch. It's certainly not as good as MSO/PO/ALiVE but after more than 5 years of development (yeah, really !), and even if there are still many things to do (correct all bugs, create version for other maps, add new tasks, optimize all scripts...) I must say I'm pretty satisfied of what I did so far. It was initially a personnal project, but I thought maybe someone else could now be interested too so I'm proud to present today the first public relase ! I hope some of you will enjoy... MAIN FEATURES SP & MP compatible Option menu at startup to customize the mission by enabling/disabling/modifying included features Mission entirely built with random parameters for unlimited replayability Let the engine select a random task or select it by yourself among various ones (patrol, defend, attack, rescue...) Additional unique tasks depending on maps, to use some of their unique features (example: searching for caves on FATA...) Fully unpredictible situations to increase stress and realism: in opposite of most of all other similar task generators, enemy strength is fully random and is not based on players numbers Many random AI activities: patrols, ambushes, assaults, kamikazes, weapons caches, IEDs... Dynamical civilian activities Civilian interactions Dynamical reputation: take care of the local population, otherwise it may rise against you Credits system to recruit AI units and to order supplies and vehicles Gain credits when performing good actions (succeeding task, destroying weapon cache, neutralizing IED, arresting suspect...) Lose credits when performing bad actions (failing task, killing civilian, arresting innocent people...) Unlock AI supports by succeeding tasks (example: rescue a pilot to unlock airstrike support) Random starting time with faster day/night cycle to simulates long time operations Improved AI friendly units: they are now able to automatically assign/unassign NVG/flashlight/silencer by themselves, depending on the daytime and on their behaviour instructions Improved AI enemy units: they are now able to board into the nearest empty armed vehicle / static defense in case of danger Optimized AI behaviour (thanks to R3F AiComTarget script) Move and transport almost every item (thanks to R3F Logistic script) Random and dynamic weather (thanks to code34 for his script - I modified it a bit so weather's evolution is now depending on world regions) Ambiance house lights and ambiance animals (thanks to TPW for his scripts) Futurist but realistic electronic tactical glasses (thanks to TPW for his script - I modified it to create motion detector and hearbeat functions) Live video feeds (thanks to BangaBob for his script) Drag injured and dead bodies (thanks to BangaBog for his script) Little immersion tweaks: light sensitive map and NVG's optimized utilisation (thanks to Viperidae for his scripts) Map gestures with nearby players (thanks to dslyecxi for his script) Customizable MP synchronized music receiver for listening music tracks into vehicles Revive & respawn systems Primary needs function: eat, drink and sleep to avoid bad effects Fully functionnal HQ: refuel vehicles, rearm, treat yourself and eat/drink/sleep into the dedicated areas Functions to deactivate/delete that usless units and vehicles to save computer/server ressources Semi-persistent mission*: you can save your progression between each task Compatible with Zeus Compatible with additional mods (ACE3, TFAR, ACRE2, bCombat, ASR AI3, Winter 2035...) French and English localizations And much more ! VIDEOS PICTURES GAMEPLAY SERIES [FR] MrRatSuper [FR] TypeX [FR] Faiavan INTERVIEWS [FR] RackBoy REQUIRED ADDONS / DEPENDENCIES New ! Altis and Tanoa versions of OPEX are now playable WITHOUT ANY MOD (but be aware, in this case some features are disabled) ! In a perfect world, I wish I could avoid gamers to download any addon or mod. But as the main goal of OPEX is to bring a fun and different ArmA experience, and if you are getting bored to play as a US soldier, take some time for downloading these files (most of them are used by a large part of the ArmA community by the way): Download all required addons with only one click by subscribing the official OPEX mod collection on Steam. Download all optional addons with only one click by subscribing the official OPEX extra mod collection on Steam. Note that OPEX is compatible with: ACE3 Task Force Radio ACRE2 Winter 2035 COMMUNITY FEEDBACK Don't hesitate to share your feedback, your suggestions and to report all bugs you may have encountered here on the official BIS forum, or on Steam. KNOWN BUGS/ISSUES (any help is welcome !) Picture pictures\overview.paa not found at startup when joining server despite the picture is present in the mission folder, I don't know how to fix this. Ambient civilian vehicles are sometimes spawning on buildings (so they explode) when playing on some unofficial maps. It seems to happen because some ArmA I / ArmA II buildings are not recognized by the engine ? The armory may take some time to initialize ion MP (you may see a few weapons or objects flying at start-up). Just wait a few seconds, everything should automatically move on the walls (maybe a server sync problem ?). Ambient AI animations may sometimes be weired when playing on MP TO DO LIST (Extreme prioriy): fix all bugs reported by the community (High priority): add many new tasks (High prioriy): create version for many other maps (High priority): always reduce addon dependency as much as possible (Medium priority): add more details to briefings (Medium priority): add notes and tips (example: how to use tactical glasses...) (Medium priority): optimize and tweak all scripts and functions (or better: rewrite everything because so many time has passed since the first code I wrote !) (Low priority): correct current localizations and add new ones (will require some translators !) (Low priority): create more information for each civilian (date of birth, adress, job...) via setVariable command in Gemini_fnc_civilianInteractionsBehaviours function, so scan interaction could be more interesting (Low priority): maybe replace current units and vehicles with more realistic ones when they will be available (OFrP ?)
