This is a project that took me more than a year to finish it. It is a huge strong project, more of this time was spent in testing and improving all the scripts.
Silent Rescue is may be the most complex mission you have ever seen. This mission have been built for 6 players. Players have roles to do:
. Medic: Capable to heal colleagues and deploy a respawn tent. Can not carry sniper rifles.
. Satellite operator: Capable to mark targets using the satellite camera. All other players will receive the information automatically.
. Strategic bombing operator: Capable to send six targets to be destroyed by the harrier.
. Ammo Soldier: Capable to create ammo for everyone. Can not carry sniper rifles.
. Engineer (x2): Capable to attach stealth charges to the targets.
In Silent Rescue you will need to rescue a hostage on one hand, on the other hand, you will need to find a satellite phone inside a building and hack it to stop the enemy reinforcements. Once you are detected the enemy can use reinforcements (Soldiers and helicopters with soldiers)
The AI in Silent rescue has been slightly tweaked. It is capable to: look randomly to any direction, move inside building, detect corpses, move with random paths, look through windows, and patrol at random areas… In addition most of the AI units in this mission have three random positions to spawn. Finally, once the enemy detects you all the AI will change its behaviour and they will move to safer positions.
Due to the mission complexity I strongly recommend to play it with colleagues otherwise it could be frustrating.
