Heya's ,


I have updated the 1st Air Cavalry Division mission in the Iadrang island.


heres the link-

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=a234 ... c2beedbbc0


Many bugs ironed out.

- Fixed -:

-disapperaring choppers.
-no ammo in respawned choppers.
-air cav symbol not showing up after respawn.
-Team leader Group respawn was buggy with vehicles.

- Changes -:

- Added bunkers around Objective area's to clear.
- Added ACH-47.
-Changed time of day and month.
-replaced arma tents with vte objects.
-deleted all barrels in objective area's.
- increased the size of objective area's to try to get a more "patrol" feel to it and to help utilse the Recon assets a little more.

Lotsa other things too.

1 Thing i could'nt fix yet is you have to hit space bar when you respawn back at the base but not if you respwan as an AI team member. :roll:
I' will hopefully get some time to do the ohters very soon.

Anyway Enjoy.

Okay lets make a deal and use only GMT timezone for now on for any meeting time discussions here (and no plus or minus hours). I'm sick of having to calculate what is that time.

For GMT you only have to put +5 hours to have GMT... but yes it's tiring !

That did it twice to 2 different human players.
And I don't know why but some of your fixes didn't work :

Choppers didn't respawn with the aircav patch and hadn't any ammo inside.

Thanx m8 for your help.

The no ammo in chopper and no symbol showing up after respawn are linked to the vehicle respawn.

It works in SP i just tested it. I will check it out on my server to see if there's any difference.

I knew i fixed it but it does'nt work in Mp as i have just found.

I'll fix this ASAP as it is bug "public enemy number 1". lol
All the other changes seem to have worked.
Has anybody seen any crappy behavior from the ai in the bunkers?

Thanx again.

Guys tonight saturday august 16th I would like to play some MP, I'm dedicating loosely all night for VTE MP, it would start about two hours from posting this, so unless I'm calculating incorrectly it would be GMT 1500hrs.

But dont worry about the time... "tonight we play" and I really try to lurk in the server all night long.

If you look ingame browser and see PMC Tactical empty... just join, I'm most likely editing a mission on the background monitoring the server and I'm joining shortly after someone arrives there. But I think I'll stay online (or someone) pretty much throughout the night.

Todays plan is to debug the PMC Jungle Patrol that is there bug on the unit creation scripts (last night I saw 16,000 units being created hehe), Defense of Firebase Dottie PMC edit would need testing and I definitely would want to try PMC LRRP Defense again as it played so enjoyably the first time we tried.

See you there :)

Last night was ok MP gaming, ok in the sense that nobody of the usual crew showed up, but surprisingly we had "alot" of people there, dunno if it was by them reading this topic or just by accident.

From Zeus we had lwlooz, Jinef, Hund and then few others I did not know about named Rob, mike, wheres my rabbit ? ESBP.eu | Snakeshit, StlKrash and ESBP.eu | telejunky. Overall it was great gaming night for me and I thank everyone who joined.

We played one mission in The Bra, it took us few hours, then we had long fight in PMC LRRP Defense and it played out smooth. I discovered that my edit of defense of firebase dottie bugs, it does not launch the additional enemy waves (because I removed the triggers, should be easy to fix) and finally I didn't get to test PMC Jungle Patrol as planned.

I really hope we can do this again soon. Does anyone know, if weekends are more of MP evening times, or can one expect to see alot of people on servers during normal working days?

btw forgot to mention that in friday I was in the Kellys Heros VTE event, there was eighteen (18) people one time when I took a screenshot, excellent turnout. It was fun event, people were professional and they used VON communications so it was easy to follow the flow of the mission.

Yeah sorry Snake Man, I had to be in town last night but I really wanted to be there and try and help you.
To me Week-ends are more for real life friends, that's why I can't join often, I'm more available on working days.

And I did, missions just finished (check from the time of posts how long I spent there).

Excellent missions. Found out some bugs in PMC Jungle Patrol and PMC LZ Grab, bugs that I dont know how to fix yet as the cause is pretty unknown.

Good number guys joined, overall had a great time playing. Thanks for everyone who was there.

After todays editing, I'm in for some MP action again evening time. I'll try to bring in the Warfare mission which we already tested a bit, then perhaps some tweaks for the other missions too, we'll see how much time I have left from texture merging which I'm doing at the moment.

Hopefully see some guys in the server tonight.

Snake man the server just went down.I was in there on my own and i think my version of VTE crashed it.

The Added Burst classes i think were the cause i'd say.

Last night I had excellent time in PMC Tactical server. First we played a bit for the new version of PMC LRRP Defense where I added Mandoble airsupport console, there was bug though in my implementation as every time I activated it, it came up for all the other players too (didnt even know that is possible).

There was Zeus guys joining which was great. The mission was heavy, there was alot of dying and actually I was eating at the moment so I just hunkered in the bunker and it was painfully to see the guys fighting for their lives while I was feeding cheeseburger to myself :)

I introduced enemy armor for this mission and perhaps there was too many of them, as well as enemy troops because the guys got killed a lot. Jinef also suggested that I move the ammo boxes away from the airstrip as they are wide open there, good tip.

Then the guys wanted to play v1.6 AirCav so we changed a mission, that started insane more than four hours lasting excellent mission. We didn't have any commander or such in the mission, but it was just awesome to see Hund, mike (and someone I forgot) flying in three ship Huey slick formation into the hot LZ, I mean you just have to be there to "get it" completely. Very very cool :cool:

Ride of valkyries
Image

It was very nice that the guys dedicated to flying helos, transport and CAS, it helped alot for the ground troops taking the objectives to get prompt rides in and out of the battle and then CAS when spotting enemy positios (which were many).

Extration LZ
Image

Insertion LZ
Image

We played mostly human leaders with AI squad members, it worked pretty well as team work, there was alot of coordinting when attacking targets which was great. Zeus guys were on TeamSpeak and I then reminded myself that I have to install it for next MP session.

Fast insertion sequence by Jinef
Image

We completed the mission by taking the seventh objective, it was already very late for me but I just couldn't stop.

Me suki suki long time...
Image

It was great night of MP for sure. I want to thank everyone who joined, it was great to see so many people in our server with the bug ridden piece of garbage VTE mod. It was very inspirational to play with so many great people, I got very high enthusiasm to edit tomorrow again, I saw so many bugs and things to tweak. In fact by just playing, the guys are making VTE better... thank you, very much appreciated.

Anzacboys mostly, try savefile.com when you send me the next AirCav version or any other files, it seems to work really nice for me.

Tonight (friday), its again MP time. Guys at IRC told me that they want to join, so I'm expecting someone to be on the server again. I cant wait.

No new missions or anything specific planned for tonight, just pure MP fun.
