co10 Escape Missions

Description
Overview
This is the addon version of the mission co10 Escape including missions for 29 different terrains without the need for addons.
co10 Escape is a dynamic coop multiplayer mission with a focus on infantry and light vehicles. It has a high degree of difficulty and was designed for replayability without sacrificing the feel and atmosphere of a handcrafted mission.


This mission pack is optimised for hosting on dedicated servers only! Use locally hosted and in SP on your own responsibility.


The mission
In this mission you and your squad was send out to scout the military presence on an enemy island in preparation for an invasion. But your squad got captured by local loyalists and you are now held in an improvised prison awaiting enemy officers to arrive for questioning. But friendly insurgent managed to hide a backpack with weapons in your improvised prison. Your task is now to overwhelm the guards, escape the prison, find a map of the island, make contact with your HQ, reach the designated evacuation zone and escape the enemy island!

The mission is fully dynamic. Every playthrough will be different. Also the mission is quite hard to beat completly. You will definitly fail at the first try. But the mission is meant to be played more than once (infact our squad plays it serveral times the week).

Note: This is not a fork of the official BI mission "Escape from xyz". The first release of co10 Escape was long before A3.


About the mission
Escape was first devloped by Engima of Östgöta Ops. for ArmA2.
At that time me (NeoArmageddon) and Scruffy ported the mission to different islands and began customizing the mission.
When ArmA3 was released, Vormulac and HyperZ made the effort to port the mission over to ArmA3. From that point on Scruffy and me improved and fixed the mission to the current state.
Most of the scripts are replaced and were updated to A3 standards (but there is still some more room for improvements).

The the official version of this release is 1.9

About the workshop version

This is the workshop release of co10 Escape. As we can't maintain over 194 seperate workshop objects we packed similar missions (same required mods, different terrains) in a single package as a multiplayer campaign. This way we can provide a huge set of different missions in a single workshop file. The drawback is that Arma treats the mission pack as an AddOn and every player on your server needs to subscribe to this WS object in order to be able to play on your server. I recommend this only for squads and groups of players that wants the comfort of a WS objects for syncing their mods. If you want classic, addonless mission files for your dedicated server checkout the regular release on the BI forums (link)[forums.bistudio.com].

Why is this tagged as campaign?
The "mission"-tag can only be used for a single mission upload. As Escape has now over 350 different mission files we packed these in smaller addon pbos. Unfortunatly these can only be tagged as either "Mod" or "Campaign". As this workshop item not adds any real modification but a bunch of missions, we throught the "Campaign"-tag fitted the best.


Installation and usage

Subscribe to this locally and on your dedicated server, start the server and select one of the many Escape mission.
Note that locally hosted and SP games are NOT supported. Because of the scope of this mission it is only optimized towards dedicated server use.

Important: If you are running into spawning problems, e.g. players spawning at the edge of the map, in the air, with gear etc make sure you are not using "-init=" commandline parameter and your server.cfg does not contain a mission rotation. These are known Arma3 bugs that cause problems with scripted missions.

A word about mission parameters: The first option in the parameter list (in the game lobby), controls if the mission should save your params, load params already saved or should just use the list as in any other mission. So if you change the params and want to store them for sessions to come, select "Use settings below and save" together with the other params as you like. If you restart the mission you don't need to touch the params anymore unless you want to change them again, as the opton "Load previously saved settings" is the default option. When parameters were stored, you won't see them in lobby yet, as Arma only restores them after starting the mission.

For statistics and improving this mission at the end of each session (fail or win) the result of the mission is stored anonymous on a server. Version, terrain, playercount, session length, servername and type of mission ending is sent. No personal informations like IP, player names, etc are sent or stored. This function can be disabled in the parameters.


License
This mission is released under the APL-SA license.
You may modify this mission aslong as you keep all credits, clearly mark the mission as modified and keep all releases under these, same terms.
When you release a modified version of this mission, please make sure to change the line #define RELEASE "something" in include/defines.hpp to your user/clan/squadname. This makes collecting feedback and issues for me much easier.

Easily my favorite mission out of Arma 3. Always feels like a fresh experience with plenty of challenge and excitement. Battling US troops in CUP/RHS is where it gets really fun, even though the war-torn mode doesn't make the most sense (US Army fighting US Marines usually) but it still keeps the chaos going.

Excellent work y'all!

Is the mission selected as mod in your A3 launcher? You can check ingame, what mods are loaded. This mission is loaded as a mod (due to it containing more than one mission per download).

If this still does not work, you can get the regular mission files from the forums link in the description and put them like other missions directly into your mpmissions folder.

Are you looking at the MP missions? These missions don't appear in the SP mission selection.

How to play it with a friend?

@DL_Black...-tailed Godwi; that option is in the parameters or just load QS Mag Repack mod, it's easier

Tnx for uploading! Love this mission. A request: a chance of there being an airplane on airfields. Not to escape, but to get around the map faster. There was once a version of escape for Tanoa before your mission was updated that had the mag repack as well as the airplanes :)

Oha, hope your PC is ready again soon. Maybe this is a good time to get a new i5-8500k and a matching MB.
It is true that Escape is more CPU intensive than missions with less AI but that is not uncommon for coop missions.

@NeoArmageddon The problem is 100% not due to your mission. My CPU decided to die today and my mobo was limiting power to save the CPU but decided not to notify me until I restarted my computer. I'm sure the mission will work 100% after I get my hardware fixed! :steamfacepalm:
