Island Escape

by
Colosseum


Description:
This is a two-player cooperative zombie mission akin to Chernarus Apocalypse by Celery. The two players must work together to survive with the odds heavily stacked against them.


Story:
After narrowly escaping Lingor, Tanny and Dixon were recruited by a group of wealthy elite (mostly politicians, financiers, and celebrities) to provide security at their island retreat in Fiji. The elites thought their secluded hideout would be the ideal destination to ride out the zombie apocalypse, but they were wrong. The island was overrun shortly after they arrived, and the elites took to sea to escape, stranding Tanny and Dixon on the beach.

Tanny is an accomplished fixed-wing pilot, and there is an old plane at the airstrip on the west end of the island. Get there and escape.


Features:
  • Addon-free but convincing zombies
  • Player characters have unique equipment
  • Custom healing script with shareable bandages
  • Zombies may drop bandages and magazines
  • Pistols are accurate
  • Selectable friendly fire damage rate
  • JIP players start close to the group
  • Character gear, bandages and damage are saved in case a player disconnects
  • Spectator mode after death
  • You can continue the game after dying by picking a new character slot


  • Installation:
    Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead\MPMissions folder.


    Notes:
    This is a beta. Please report any problems you encounter! I'd really appreciate feedback on whether or not the mission is even fun.

    There are two recommended addons:
      - BAF (recommended, but will work without)
      - PMC (recommended, but will work without)
