Shot Down
A game idea by Spitfirebruce21
Basic plot:
Welcome, you are a RAF pilot flying the 2 seater Tornado Multi-role Strike Aircraft. You think its just another op, but its not.
You are shot down deep in enemy terrotory where Allied forces can't reach, You also loose your comms.
You and your co-pilot bale out and come with a brush with the enemy straight away, take them on with your pistol. You locate your copilot and steal the AK-47s and legit before you are found. You then fight your way out.
Its basically a huge circle map and you make your way to the border of the zone and the last known FOBs (Forward Operating Base), obviously with your co-pilot. You and your co-pilot make your way out of this danger zone, looting food and supply’s and weapons. Fight your way through towns and strongholds or go through the countryside to escape your way out, if you are spotted you are fired at, try to get extracted by passing helicopters with flares you find or make it tot the border, its hard to get extracted but you may recieve extra support around the area. maybe with a few missions you can do, i.e take out checkpoints and assasinate leaders?
Made to be when you are very close to the border. The enemy is lying in wait and you face a very difficult firefight to get out, eventually you use strategy and the use of short range coms to get in contact with a SAS unit that happens to be going out through the same area, you meet and together with support fight your way to victory.

This game is different than others in the way that you have more freedom, its not simply just click bang, you need to stratergise, scavange not just get your weopans delivered. Its more realistic...

More details:
Category: RPG/Action/Free-roam/adventure/simulation
Realism: As realistic as possible, like ARMA 2 health and damage.
Weapons: common weapons, so realistic.
Map: detailed and large enough for a long gameplay.
Perspective 3rd/1st person depending on difficulty.
Vehicles: yes, but if seen driving suspiciously and watch out for Taliban checkpoints.
Time: 1h = 12h

I know this will take a long time but it would make a good game that people would like if it gets done right. I understand it will take time but it sounds worth it, if it’s a small map, so be it.
Consoles: PC and others if the developer wants to.

Here's a start: - The RAAF often have officer Cadets at Cranwell here in the UK and participate in most of our programs including the SERE's courses. If you are not able to get any help from RAAF i would keep plugging away at the net, there is a lot of info out there.

I am from Ausrtalia mate, Im an AAFC cadet, but I can't simply talk to RAAF or RAF aircrew, btw I have made a version of this. Not along the plotline for Arma 3. However once I have the full game I will be making a campaign...

I would forget reading books and actually reach out and talk to some RAF aircrew. Ask about the "Smash n Grab" survival exercises etc. The likes of Bat 21 (now the REAL story behind Bat 21 was amazing) Bravo Two Zero, Black Hawk Down even sadly to say Tornado Down etc are loosely based on real events but they are mass market items so basically full of shit. Reach out for info via the RAF website, go down to your local RAF Careers Office and see what info they can give you. Otherwise scour the net, theres lots of info for Aircrew Escape and Evasion.

fivetide is right. there are tons of mods like that.

@fivetide78 Actaully considering doing that, have been working around with the editor in that a lot, however right now Takistan doesn't give me the right terrain I want to use, Neither does most maps I am looking at. At current I am looking at a flatish kind of terrain, desert, small villages, more like Afghanistan, and very large.

why not just heavily mod arma?

@gunner, word limit is fine... I have read most of those books, I agree all of this, maybe to make it more intrsting. If you are familiar with Far Cry 2 you will know you get malaria, maybe you could get some other kind of desease in this?

I recommend you read books like Black Hawk Down, Bravo Two-Zero, The One That Got Away, BAT 21, as well as watching some shows about the US military's SERE school as well as SAS training.

Well, that is if you want to make a more realistic type game. I mean you could make a complete Uber character that has a satellite phone that shoots lasers and calls in nukes.

sorry for the three comments, there is a 1k char limit.

Hope that helps.

If you want an "escape and evade game" to simulate a pilot think about the frame of mind the pilot would be in... You are used to working a couple hours a day flying. You get to eat warm meals, take hot showers, and sleep in a warm soft bed. Then all of a sudden you are violently shot out of your jet traveling close to the speed of sound and you likely hit the ground traveling between 70 and 90 KPH. You have enough food and water to survive for about three days if you use it wisely. You have a pistol and two or three magazines, some flint and steel, maybe a map, some local money, a piece of paper that says "take me to a British Base and you will receive a reward" in the local language. Your emergency radio and transponder may or may not work, but it broadcasts UN-encrypted, so if you use it you help the enemy find you. Your people are definitely looking for you... in the location they think you are, which may be in a different area.

I like the re-write. Maybe you should look at moving away from pilots if you want to more than run and hide. Watch Behind Enemy Lines. If a pilot is shot down, mostly only the military or police will be shooting at them. The civilians will most likely either help you or stay out of the way. After all look at the countries where the RAF operate. Most are ruled by dictators and the population may already be in open revolt (see what is happening in Syria and what happened in Libya).
