Siege of Athira

 
 

Persistent survival PVE/PVP SP/Hosted MP (10 players)/Dedicated MP mission (10 players)

 
It is something I always wanted to play. Basically you are surviving NATO soldier in besieged town. Town is besieged by CSAT and inside you are trapped with few surviving guerrillas resistance. Groups/singles of guerrillas fight each other in town and you need to go out from your hideout under town to find equipment and food. Food is found at houses furniture and equipment usually on dead bodies or guerrilla secret boxes scattered around town.

Every raid that last 90m you need go out and then find shelter entrance randomly scattered around the town to get back to your underground hideout. If you die in town everything you had with you is lost and you born as new NATO survivor. Everything that is stored in hideout stash is safe for your next life. You cannot escape town cos CSAT snipers and there is zone between town and factory that you need be careful to cross it. During night you can use chemlights and attach it on you or wait for CSAT flare for snipers above town or use gun lamp or if lucky NVG.

Only vanilla ARMA 3 is needed. No mods and no DLCs are required. Your progress is saved automatically in SP/MP.

Enjoy and report all experience/bugs/ideas. As I am not native please report any text corrections needed.

First test of trader system. Voices are free TTS placeholders and prices are not set yet - you can get any item for two other items in test video.

Trading is actual minigame - not just 2D menu.

Sorry for audio at end - Win10 recording gone nuts.
