Description
Welcome to the Great Altis Highway Race. In this mission you have but one objective: Starting just south of the major city of Kavala, you will race along the main highway road of Altis all the way to the small town of Molos in the far north-east of the country - a distance of almost 32km! - using the fastest cars in Arma 3, the Civilian Hatchback Sport. First one there wins!

This is a Multiplayer mission only! There are no AI to race against, so you need at least one other person in order play. You can race with up to 13 other players plus 4 civilian observer slots for anyone wishing to document a race from above. There are no rules beyond getting to the end of the race, so its up to you to decide how you want to do it!

Features:

Choose what kind of weather and time of the day you wish to race in. Do you dare race at night in the fog? (Default is Clear)

Several Checkpoints will be along the route where players may respawn (once passed) and get new cars if they trash their last one!

Players can repair their car if they damage it. And trust me you will damage it! However your top speed is affected by the damage and you may not be able to go as fast as you could before. A finite supply of new cars can be obtained at any Checkpoint to restore your maximum speed of 326km/h!

Civilian traffic can be expected along the highway, possibly around that next corner... (can be disabled)

Players locked to first person whilst driving (can be disabled).

OPFOR Helicopters: Want to spice the mission up? In the setup parameters, why don't you enable these OPFOR controlled AH-9 helicopters. They don't like racers and will attempt to chase and destroy any they see! (disabled by default)


Future:

I'm currently working hard on Version 2.0 of the race. This new massive update will include several new courses to choose from, giving the mission much greater replayability and longevity! Hope to see a release by mid-June =)

I'm always willing to hear of any suggestions you may have, so don't hesitate to leave a comment or start a discussion! =)

Please also help keep the mission stable and report any bugs, glitches or problems to me!


Many thanks and I hope you all enjoy the mission =)

Just subscribe to the mission, start a multiplayer game, select Altis as your map and then just select the mission.

Great race - so much fun, even if I am absolutely awful at taking the sharp turns :D

Glad you enjoyed it =D

Locking to first person is an upcoming feature as well as being able to disable the civilian traffic and perhaps one or two other options =)

This is great thanks so much, I've already had a few laughs with my friends is there anyway to lock it to first person perspective only? I'd love to do a night, fog 1st person only race.

Update: All is working as it should be now! I've also added in two startup parameters (select parameter in the top right of the player lobby). You can select what sort of weather and what time of the day to race in.

I dare you all to race in fog at night =D

Update: Whilst you can play the mission now, respawn is still broken because you can't select your respawn position so it tends to either respawn you where you die or somewhere near the start instead of at your last checkpoint.

Ok, made a couple of changes. I've tested this a few times now, each time it allows me to respawn at the start of the mission upon mission load. I'd rather it not do this, but is a suitable workaround until BI either fix the previous problem or there's I find a better solution.

Damn, ok it was working earlier for me. Will continue to look into it. Sorry about this guys. Blame Bohemia for breaking respawns :P
