OFP Nostalgia Pack v1.03

This is a revival of the OFP Nostalgia Pack.

Back in 2001 a few talented people created the first OFP Missions using the demo content and a 3rd party mission editor – remember the game was not even released back then.
It was the time were mission editing people were real men and exploited the game in order to find out how stuff is done. ;-)

I have converted and fixed these missions so they can be used in CWR². Where possible I added playable slots for MP usage, see the list below for a list of MP compatible missions and their player slots.
Converting these missions was a pain because the previously mentioned editor created mission files which are no more readable by ArmA2. That means I had to fix the bugs manually, then imported the mission and then started working on them once the mission became stable.
I changed a few smaller things and scripts but I would say I reached the goal of keeping 90% of the original mission.
In this – probably final – update I’ve gone through all missions again and made a lot of big and small fixes and changes. While this may be the last update, please report critical bugs and I try to fix them asap.

Please note:
Compared to todays ‘standards’ these missions are pretty easy, some would call them even ‘crappy’ – usually there is no fancy scripting and effects stuff. However playing these missions gives you an idea how it was back then in Summer 2001 as the community was awaiting the first War Simulation from a once great Bohemia Interactive.

I have to thank a lot of people here:
First off, all the people making these missions back in 2001.
Avon Lady for fixing the original missions for OFP and having them still downloadable until today.
Shuko for his Taskmaster script.
Kronzky for his Urban Patrol script.
Ghost for his helicopter insertion script.
Sander for testing the missions several times.
Mikero for his ‘fancy’ editing tools, they saved me a lot of grey hair.
Anyone else I forgot.

Elephant Island

Welcome to Elephant Island! A sunny place somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, or the Carribean, or wherever you want it to be.
Only sparsely populated, it features two military camps and an airfield as well as several radio installations which makes it an interesting strategic object for several countries nearby.

Background
I started this project about three years ago after I got my hands on the VBS2 Developer Tools. Unfortunately I suck at graphics, so I was never able to create the required textures for it. In the first version it had an ugly all green Grass Texture all over the place. But hey, I had my first terrain working!
A collaboration with David ‘Seventh’ Lagettie who had the same Idea back then unfortunately never became reality so at some point I forgot about the whole thing and it went to depths of my drives and collected dust.
A while back I found it again and replaced the VBS2 objects with A2 and converted A1 ones. But still the satmask was missing so I went to the Editing forums and made a list of ‘possible targets’. I found it in Bushlurker, and I asked him to make me ‘a quick and dirty’ Satmask for my island.
Of course he did way more than just a quick texture job. He added a working airfield, changed the cell size, levelled the terrain. He also made the island selection picture, the logo and what not. In short, without his dedicated work the little Island would never be what it is now. Not even close.
Since the first release, he improved the terrain texture even more, making it the beautiful thing it is now.
Why ‘Elephant Island?’ you may ask. David Lagettie, who created the original island for VBS1 and where it was used as ‘Core island’ gave it this name. I guess because of the many Elephant grass being used on it.

Requirements
ARMA 2 Combined Operations (ARMA 2 + Operation Arrowhead)

Credits and thanks
Just a ‘thank you’ is not enough, so… a BIG THANK YOU to Bushlurker for all the time he spent on this little project, doing work I never could have done and answering all my stupid questions. The result is better than anything I ever expected!

David ‘Seventh’ Lagettie for the original work and some insight view on the original development.

Berghoff for his Elephant grass.

[COOP 06] Operation LoJack III

Sergeant Richard Moore disappeared three nights ago from one of the last outposts in Chernarus. Normally we would not send in a rescue team until we found out Moore’s exact location, but Moore was carrying a prototype of an experimental tracking device, which was being tested by Army Rangers. It seems, whoever is responsible for his disappearance has no knowledge of the tracking device, and Moore has managed to activate the device. Your team goes in and get Moore out of there – alive if possible.

This is an attempt to bring back toadlife’s famous ‘Operation Lojack’ mission back to ArmA II. The original mission was released in 2003 for OFP, I added more road patrols and camps in 2006 for VBS1 and converted that enhanced mission now for ArmA II. There are 16 possible locations for the captive (versus 6 in the original), numerous patrols on foot and in vehicles to keep you busy for a while.

Requirements:
ArmA II
