Sounds good, can't wait to try it out again. I see a possible all nighter, maybe Friday or Saturday.

See you in the game

Yeah after some tests I will send this version to adlabs and schedule something for Saturday night maybe. Might not be able to come myself but at least it'll be out there.

After some dedicated server testing and a few fixes I've sent this off.

Changes:
- IED caches added: destroy for 500 Rep. These appear randomly in northern towns under attack, and are hand-placed in the south.
- Randomly spawning buried pressure-plate IEDs can now appear, especially near roads. Watch out! The Combat Engineer can disable these, or you can blow them up.
- Suicide bombers should be more common.
- Added a few more set-piece encounters.
- Reduced costs of buildings.
- Enemies attack the northern towns more quickly.
- Some vehicle changes.

Tao,

I played this mission Friday night. Just myself. I cleared the first two towns and then it crashed. (9:30 P.M. EST 'ish).

My 2 cents:

Way easy. I cleared the first two towns all by myself and only died twice. I just sniped and used the Strykers from the hilltops. Never encountered any ieds, bombers, etc.. Is it based on number of players?
The only thing I saw was a muj run up to plant a land mine in front of my stationary Stryker. Then he just stood there, so I shot him.
Come to think of it, I never had to move. After the first shot they all came to me. Group comes close, kill, next,...... Town clear.

The server most likely went down to upload the new version, since adlabs emailed me about it around then. NEW VERSION IS UP

The first four towns are statically designed and do not have any dynamic spawning. They are designed to be cleared out quickly and easily by 1-4 players to provide an introduction to the game type and allow an initial growth of Reputation Points for building outposts north. Once those four are secured, you unlock the airbase and the enemy begins spawning dynamically, including more powerful groups up to a T-34+infantry team, as well as random hidden mortar teams.

The number of enemy groups that spawn in Phase 2 is determined by the number of players connected at the spawn time. More players means more groups attack each town, but fewer towns are simultaneously attacked.

I'm surprised you were able to get away with sniping and Strykering without moving. In Chak Chak, they have a mortar base set up which will shell the heck out of you near the town -- it has always prevented me from using that type of tactic, if I don't get slaughtered by the SPG-9 trucks first. Suicide bombers and VBIEDs will only be found in CQB in the town -- the newest version has also roadside bombs, but they are not excessively common except in a few zones. If this turns out to be an issue even in phase 2, I already have a solution in the pipeline that will spawn dedicated groups that know your position and will continuously hunt players down across the map, lol. Hit squads! I've held off on this.

That said, it's not designed to be that difficult in terms of actual fighting -- U.S. forces have a huge tech advantage over insurgent junk. The challenge comes in phase 2 when you can't be everywhere at once (while the insurgents can), and have to rely on your bases, logistics network, outpost fast travel links, and other transport assets to fight across the map to hold as many towns as possible. We discovered this playing with 4-5 players before. Even with Apache + Abrams and other assets, we were having trouble holding just the southern towns consistently, since as soon as we left the enemies who were hiding in the town could reclaim control, and it was risky to move the base building equipment around near uncleared areas.

Thanks for the explaination.

Another thing I did not like is having to go to that tent to change my view distance. Can you just that on the map or radio?

Since that's a one time thing, I don't want to clutter anything up.

There was a floating guy in a static .50 just north of the the middle of the airbase.

Just sent a new fixed version off.

Fixes:
Fast Travel should be MP compatible now.
I removed the IED system -- it doesn't work on dedicated servers. I will see what I can do about replacing it somehow.
I deleted that floating M2 guy. Wonder how he got there.

Wouldn't expect any major updates to this for awhile, unless the fast travel turns out to still be broken. I am reconsidering the concept and trying to determine how I can make it less possible to stand off and just abuse technology against them. I wanted this to be a very up close and personal type of conflict. Perhaps I will make a new variant that only includes light vehicles.

More takiban in the houses would help. With this 1.60 I saw a takiban take cover in a house.

Maybe it is my military training, but standoff firepower from high ground is the only thing I do.

I think the issue maybe the game itself. When ever you shoot at a squad/group of AI they just automatically start making their way toward you. Then you just keep picking them off as they get closer. The game has always been this way. So when I roll up to a town I take a couple of shots at group to start them coming at me. Take them out and then start with the next group. So on and so on.

It's a difficult issue for sure. The main weakness of the default AI is its unwillingness to engage with suppressive fire at long ranges. They prefer to just run towards you until they get a nice kill shot possibility. Meanwhile you have killed 80% of them. This is greatly improved by certain AI mods, but it's difficult to build into a mission.
