HLC Dynamics - Art of the Tactical Coop
So for a little while now, I've been stewing over running a coop campaign in ARMA 2:CO (ARMA 2 + ARMA: Op Arrowhead), and now with semester over ,we're totally doing it. For veteran AFO Lambda vets (Bekey, Simon ,Robbe, Kevin, etc) this'll be somewhat more organised than our usual adhoc bashes at Patrol Ops. If that doesn't seem like your brand of Vodka, help yourself to as much food as you like and have a safe journey, no hard feelings. Otherwise, read on.

The campaign is fixed length, though actual duration will depend on demand and turnout. So far, it's looking like two SpecFor feet wetting missions, followed by about 4-6 more slightly more complex ones.

The day before at approx same time and and an hour leading up to the start time I'll be running Jump Start courses in general ARMA 2 stuff, ACE and ACRE, to sort out the bugs and training issues.

What I need right now is an approximate show of hands for numbers and roles to sort out the hieirachy. When we get closer to the date, checkhere for more information.

Putting the special back in Special Forces.
AFO Lambda is the codename for the Joint Special Operations Task Force to counter the insurgency in Central Takistan. This Taskforce is comprised of SFOD-D, MARSOC HE (formerly Marine Hazardous Enviornment Unit), and Operators on assignment from various US allies. Lambda's operational tasking is concerned with critical path objectives ahead of conventional forces ( Recon, Sabotage, S&D, HVI tracking, CSAR).



Current Active Roster-


To be finalised. Watch this post.


* Numbers and Presence of units may vary depending on operation. Roles assigned that don't exist in the mission will be retasked as riflemen/operators and/or grouped with active elements.




May as well turn over the floor to you guys, any interested parties should post here, along with any preferred roles they'd like to see in the campaign.
Also, because why not, General ARMA 2 thread. Also Maybe DayZ if you contain your filthy dumb banditry.

I'm not saying you SHOULD skip work to play a video game, but like, the more people carrying big sticks who know how to tie their laces we have, the better this gets...  
Could shift the hours a little if neccesary, at most probably around 1 ahead in the immediate, or could put it off 8 hours.

also, toying with dropping the ACRE requirement given the issues Brian has with it.. maybe use ingame voice. Not brilliant quality, but still has the ability for positional audio via direct channel.

I'm always down for less requirements, six is harder to use now than it ever was.

Post by: toadie on December 17, 2012, 02:23:42 AM
yeah, play with six seems to improve the situation, but it's also a pain to manage if you want  manually tweak your arma2 ( ie, mods not in the preset list)

Providing nobody does another update between now and next campaign run, I could just stick a RAR of all the ACE/ACEX shit together and upload it, would sort of fucking with Six alltogether if that's a beefcakes. Not really a problem.

Meh gonna spend some time with Brian to see if can't fix that with six

Post by: toadie on December 17, 2012, 09:28:27 AM
roger that. IF it all goes to shit this friday again, We'll use the ingame voice instead. No need to lose brian again. We learn a hard lesson about Zero CAS without him.

Okay so there's a new version of patrol ops out which basicly unfucked all the broken. Huzzah. So I also made the specialised HLC Version.
Includes-

- HIND-E (AKA World War 3 with wings)

- SOAR MH47E Chinooks which as tough as fuck and somewhat fucking managable to manouver.

- Proper kit UH60M and UH60L Blackhawks (as well as a MEDEVAC version for "oh fuck why did we even attack that direction).

- LAV25s, because Strykers suck for cargo space.

- C130
Additional weapons per requests in the ammo boxes. Javelins and Jav CLUs both are available.

Also, as part of the 2.05 Update, there are also M1A2 TUSK CSAMMs, and they are glorious.

also, this.
