The chopper where our 4 survivors escaped in The Parish campaign, has fallen into harms way. Co-pilot of the chopper was not immune and started to turn into infected. The other pilot got bitten by the infected one but managed to land the chopper. However. the chopper soon exploded, caused by the rough landing in the woods. Survivors need to scavenge what they can from the vicinity of the chopper and get moving. There is a long way ahead through Open Road, that starts from Cliffside swamps. Are you ready to survive?

For more detailed story and if you want to know how i did this, have a look at the campaign feature page http://ics-base.net/openroad/

I have also released the development files of the campaign 14th of March 2020. You can take a look at the source files and see how this was done by downloading them from here: http://ics-base.net/openroad/release/openroad_dev_release.zip

I agree with sock, this premise makes no sense.

I don't like the lore you've given this campaign, but only because that helicopter should not have crashed. For those of you unaware, the army personal you communicate with over the radio during the bridge finale of The Parish have an exchange where they confirm amongst themselves that the helicopter is "equipped for carriers".

This tells us a few things. Firstly, these army remnants are fully aware of immunity and carriers. Secondly, they have transported carriers by helicopter before, as they wouldn't have had systems in place to be "equipped for carriers" already if they had not. Thirdly, these systems were likely something along the lines of completely sealing off the pilot cabin from the cargo hold to prevent infection through airborne particulates released by infected individuals. Simply put, it's a very similar situation to the APC that rescues the L4D1 survivors at the end of Blood Harvest.

Wow you got a long road ahead then, nice! The campaign isnt the easiest but I wanted to offer a bit more challenge than just run and gun experience. Should I have done this today, it propably would be a bit easier. Thanks for playing!

what a classic campaigns. this was the first unofficial map I played about ten years ago, and today I suddenly thought of playing it again.as I remembered, it was easy to get lost in Chapter 4, and the field outside the safe house in the final chapter was so suffocating that I still hadn't even finished it back then. it took me and bots 44mins to finished it today, it brought back many memories along the way, It’s great, thank you for your great work.:steamthumbsup:

Do not play this one with the bots, they cannot navigate the final map to save their fucking lives.
