I remember my first ArmA2 Insurgency session. Epic fail.

Mission Briefing:

All squadmembers siiting together and listening to Poffadders mission briefing. I was the machinegunner.

I alt-tabbed to =VG= forum page and suddenly EVERYONE yelling at me what the fuck i doing and me shocked " Making forumpost"

Poffadder asked me what i do and i said again making forum post" and Poffadder "aaaahhh you ALt-Tabbed, he doesnt know.

Old Arma 2 bug, when you not lowered the weapon and you alt-tabbed, you shooting the whole belt empty without knowing it.

Changes log...

No UAV except for UAV opperator (prevent UAV cheat of scanning AO for cache).

Small fix to MHQ deployment, should deploy on elevated/sloped terrrain.

Vehicle rearm only at MHQ, engineer no loger able to re-arm in field.

To fix:

S.O.A.R exfil's  towards AO...

Random Vehicle patrols empty after an hour or so ...

Fix sound not found for parra drop...

Fix notifications for MHQ deployment time...

If anyone would like to contribute the files are un-binarised.

Hm .. really? look to all houses through the windows? 🤣
The drone terminal is also used to operate the remote designator, AL-6 Pelican (medical), ED-1 (backpack) or Mk30A - automatic sentry gun (backpack).


Observations and suggestions:
- HQ should not be a combat vehicle. Players drive the AMV-7 Marshall to sectors and capture them.
- Scoring table - A jump from the MHQ is minus 1 point in the light vehicle class (sometimes).
- Little Bird should have a respawn delay. The players don't rearm it, they just crash.
- Vehicle rearming, near MHQ not very intuitive. There was a designated place in Arma2.

The first full mission is complete. 10/10 ammo cache found.
The server was running nonstop for 9 days. FPS server okay.

Observations and suggestions:

- No sapper slot. Sometimes players / trolls plant anti-infantry mines near HQ. There is no way to disarm them.

Nice work. 👍 I've been having an issue with joining the server. I am getting an error when initializing the player.  The little video/quote at mission join will show an error under certain circumstances. This causes a black screen and you can no longer access the ui except for the main menu. Respawning does not work and the only option is to quit the server. Changing servers and missions have not solved the issue. Only a fresh start of the game client works so far.

This occurs if:

1.) I join after playing a different mission elsewhere.

2.) I rejoin after playing this mission for some period of time.

This does not occur if:

1.)  I join after a game client restart.

It is possible that I am having an issue with my system but just in case I'm not the only one. I recommend removing the intro until it can be sorted.

Players are jacking the MHQ and moving the spawn point when they should not?  My very first proper script for Arma (2) was for this exact thing.  I added some stiff restrictions for being able to move it.  Might need to do something like that for the MHQ in this mission...

What?! No trolling the players! :tatice_03:

Seriously though, if you don't mind my constructive criticism, random IED's in video games are often invisible or damn near and can be detrimental to playability if not used with caution by the game designer - unless you want players to drive at 5MPH everywhere.  A2 INS SOAR never had them.  There is a reason MRAP's exist and realistically one might assume that whatever army BLUFOR is part of would send stealth helicopters to an MHQ would also provide IED survivable MRAP-style vehicles when IED's are a known threat in an AO.

The IEDs in arma are actual place able explosives and are not invisible unless scripted that way, as well as only having a handful of variations, to the point that after a week of playing you can spot them a mile away. On top of that, the DUKES on the MRAPs and hummvees do work and the MRAPS do survive IEDs depending on the size. You can also use mine sweepers that will mark IEDs as mines and the Unmanned drone from the contact DLC will detect IEDs that you can then deal with from the drone.

RHS I believe is the mod that has the DUKE mounted vehicles however.

Can you set the "Service Vehicle 2" script to Service depot?

Well no... you cannot apply actions and remove them correctly from simpleobjects:

https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/addAction

So i added it that way, simple fix is to remove the turret and gunner seat for now.

I sort of thought that if you were moving the MHQ that it would be a valuable asset! keep it back and utilise the rearm repair for other vehicles  it should now be removed I could not replicate this and get it to show "service" while moving, was the MHQ undeployed when you joined?  or do you know if the MHQ was destroyed and respawned, not got time this week to check. so Friday soonest.

IED's are from request but to settle nerves you can see them, some are duds! (will set param so Admin can see them!)

Also added a drag and revive mechinism will update server with that file asap...
