Somewhere In Siberia

by
Surfer


Description:
What starts as a sabotage mission turns out to become kind of a postapocalyptic free roam adventure, playable as a 4 player coop or single player. The story unfolds with every location you explore, enemies you capture and allies you find. The atmosphere is inspired by STALKER or FALLOUT and features lots of custom sounds and music.

Technical mastermind IndeedPete and me (Surfer) have modified mine detectors that show zones of dangerous radioactivity, biological and chemical threats. There's further anomalies you don't want to step into, some of them can be revealed by throwing chemlights into them. The beautiful Thirsk Winter map of 5 x 5 kms can be explored on foot until you manage to steal or repair vehicles. At the moment the mission runs with Farooq's Revive, you can switch between team-members but once you lose all four of them the game is over. Gametime is around 2 - 5 hours. There's no respawn. Since IndeedPete and I took weeks to create this mission it's only fair if you take some time to complete it ;-)


Features:
  • snow is falling
  • day/night cycles
  • around 10 locations with tasks or story elements
  • non linear gameplay
  • detection of hazard zones including onscreen icons, sounds & damage

  • all story elements are logged so you can re-read them
  • 3 NPCs that can join your team
  • toned down AI skills
  • that mystic weather experiment you see in the video

  • three factions: CONTENTION, GREENWAR and FREEZONERS
  • custom textures and uniforms


  • Installation:
    Extract the .pbo file(s) to your Steam/SteamApps/common/ArmA 3/MPMissions folder.


    Known issues:
    - "advanced vehicles mod" is killing the players during the intro.
    - sometimes the players spawn right into an anomaly. this still needs to be fixed. if it happens to you, restart!
    - green circles on map. they actually don't mean anything.
    - single players should start the mission from the MISSIONS folder / Scenarios to allow teamswitching.
    - higher diffuculties block teamswitching.


    Planned features:
    - dubbed narrator
    - more dynamic locations and tasks
    - more allies
