CTB COOP 16 Operation Boer's Plain (Takistan) - v1.7e


Op Boer's Plain
by
Wolffy.au


Description:
A small US Army task force has been deployed to patrol the area and maintain control of the region. Ammunition can be found in the vehicle cargo. Patrol each town to identify and clear rebel presence.

Weather is randomised to keep things interesting


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


Developer notes:
Here is a list of nifty components to be found in this mission.
Random Group Spawn code by Odin
- This piece of code has turned out to be the most important piece of my future mission making. Using GameLogic objects, this code will spawn random enemy groups of Infantry, Motorised, Mechanised, Armour and Air. In conjunction with Binesi's taskDefend and taskPatrol code, randomised mission making has never been simpler.
Team Status Dialog by Dr Eyeball
- Allows the customisations of groups while playing the mission. As suggested by the Dr himself, I'm sure other clans will find it very useful.
CEP Unit Caching by Myke
- Beware of fake imitations, this is the original unit caching code from Myke's ARMA I Coop Essentials Pack. I have heavily modified it and it now supports vehicle units.
Weapons on Respawn/Splash Screen/ACE Weapons Box by Xeno
- Xeno did all the coding to create these ammo boxes and splash screen, so I think he deserves a mention for their use.
Improved taskDefend and taskPatrol by Binesi
- Binesi posted these improved BIS functions around the same time I was asking myself the same question. Placing patrols and defensive squads has never been simpler.
On-the-fly GFX Changer by Deadfast
- Simple graphical viewdistance and terrain control. Very slick interface, although I've hardcoded the terrain detail in this mission, as I didn't think it was fair on the AI.
Missions Conditions Selector - F2 MP Framework
- Another handy script, I modified it slightly for JIP client time setting, but it works a treat otherwise.


creoBellum scripts:
Here are some of my own scripts, which you are free to use with credits intact.
Random Group Generation (crb_randomGroup.sqf)
- This is a must have for randomising your mission. Will create random squads of Infantry, Motorised, Mechanised, Armoured and Air. Makes the mission different everytime.
JIP Briefing (JIPBriefing.sqf)
- JIP Briefings are a real pain. This is my current model for consecutive objectives which is JIP compatible.
Player Weapon Loadout (PlayerInit.sqf)
- Sets up weapon loadout based on mission selector and unit model. Works for human and AI playable units.
Hide Bodies (crB_HideCorpses.sqf)
- Inspired by Mr Murrays code, this one liner will remove dead bodies from the mission with no additional triggers or objects. Just add the script to your Init.sqf - very simple.
WaypointPatrol.sqf
- Uses markers to patrol vehicles randomly from one marker to another. Excellent to ensure all parts of your Area of Operation are patrolled. Now includes Civilian vehicles.

Thanks for reading,

I wasn't asking you Rhodesy_77 (not sounding mean or anything or in a mean tone). So did you help make this mission??? (That sentance that you just read, I didn't mean to sound mean. I'm sorry if you think that).

I don't mean to sound mean,

Got this error, "Cannot play/edit.......missing AA.Winf, aaw_f88".........so I suppose that means we need the Australians At War - ACE? It isn't listed in the addons required.

The "AA.Winf" is Australians at War - Infantry Units which is an addon I think you also need.

You also need ACE which isn't listed on the Home page of armaholics.com in the addons required. It is however listed in the forum post. :)

Thanks!

I've moved this mission to Takistan. I will try to re-release it on Isla Duala in the near future.

Updated some minor fixed to v1.7e. So eager to release it, I haven't done the changelog, but it should be more stable.
