Wolle,
First of all great mission. A team of four Phoenix Soldiers operators took up the call to find and extract Moore. However it seems that the mission ending doesn't work.

Without giving away spoilers...
The team managed to locate and secure Moore. We then moved to extract. In the process, we lost one operator. Upon reaching the extraction point, nothing seemed to happen. A good 8 minutes went by without any sign of an extract vehicle or chopper.


Can you please look into the mission ending. It was a shame to make it so far and have nothing happen. Although, again, I have to say it was a very cool tactical stealth mission.

Hi,

I guess I know the reason for this. While testing I set BLUEFOR friendly to Resistance hence the extraction helicopter doesn't engages any enemy units. In the tests they always arrived at the LZ.

I need to find a way to make the extraction helicopter ignore the targets and moving to the LZ.

Sorry for the troubles, gonna fix that asap.

Update: I uploaded v1.02 here.
Let's hope the damn chopper now does what he is supposed to.

Wolle,
Thank you for the update. I'll download and set it up on our server tonight.
I hear Moore has fallen into enemy hands again...

Hi there W0lle

Firstly, awesome mission. I won't reveal any spoilers here, but this mission has LOADS of replayablility!

Secondly, the evac still doesn't work in the updated version. I'm not sure if it's a constant thing, as we only
completed it once, but after holding the extraction zone for ten min, nothing happened.

I really hope this gets fixed, as it really is an awesome mission.

Ps.

This is doable with as few as two players.

Thanks BuLLeT, I thought as much.

Sigh... ok I try something else then and report back once I played with some possible ideas.

Cool man.

We'll keep playing the current version, and report back if the chopper shows up :)

***Apologies for double post***

M0lle:

Tonight we played the mission again, with three players.

We retrieved the hostage, got to the extraction zone, and after a couple of minutes the evac did show up.
It did not land, but after a while it did say objective completed, and mission complete.

I don't want to post more details on the open forum, as it would contain spoilers, but if you like, I can PM
you a more detailed debrief.

Please do, I sent you also a PM last night with an updated version.

The helicopter never lands automatially, once the AH-1 arrives the SH-60 follows shortly after. You then must order your men into the chopper.

No need to keep them as secret... here is the latest version for everyone:

Operation Lojack v1.05

Norrin is so kind and takes a look at my scripting mess, possible that there's another version anytime soon.

Another version uploaded: Version 1.06

- Added an alternative extraction point in case the extraction helicopter can't move anymore.
- Added a debug trigger (temporary) which shows the position of the extraction helicopter with an orange dot.
- Using publicVariable for all variables in the init.sqf

Please test this version and report anything you think it could be a bug, thanks. :)

I hope that I can release the final version then by the end of next week, please refrain from modifying this one for now or you might need to do everything again.

W0lle,\
I don't mean to be a pest, but this version only seems to run in day light hours. The time of day selector does not work. I also noticed if you take another position other than the team leader, the radio tracker signal does not beep as clearly as the team leader's. The sound is distorted and seems more like the radio tracker isn't even working correctly. However, I guess the team leader is the default position.
