Mike Force (Beta) [Cam Lao Nam]

Description
Take back Vietnam from the communists!

Four specialist U.S. teams co-operate to build bases and destroy the VC in this unique, intense, persistent mission.

Current Version: v0.66.01

Vietnam has been infiltrated by communist forces from the North! Choose one of four specialist teams, and co-operate to build bases, expand capability and find and destroy the enemy in this unique, intense, combined arms, conquest mission.

To survive in the jungle, you will need food, water and medicine, tools for building, and a lot of ammo! Earn rank points and medals completing tasks in order to unlock better equipment and support!

- Join the Armored Cavalry (ACAV) team to build Forward Operating Bases (FOB's) and run the gauntlet in truck convoys bringing essential supplies.

- Join the Green Hornets team to transport men and materials to remote outposts or directly into a hot LZ on the battlefield, or fly Close Air Support (CAS).

- Join Mike Force team to patrol the jungles, mountains, rivers, swamps and streets, sweeping for enemy camps and fighting positions, and garrison the FOB's when they come under relentless attack from the VC!

- Join the Spike Team to operate deep in enemy territory, to destabilise the enemy by locating and destroying their facilities. (Note: Spike Team is currently disabled / on R&R, and will be included in a future release).

An intelligent AI commander ensures that no mission is ever the same in this persistent, challenging, dynamic and immersive Vietnam experience!

Mike force is currently in beta, and still under constant development! There's a wide variety of features and plenty of polish still to be added, so keep an eye out for regular updates!

Usage

You may host it on your servers and play it in its published state only.
This is a temporary restriction, that will last until the end of the Mike Force beta. We want to ensure all players have the best, most up-to-date experience possible - and that's unfortunately not feasible if people start producing variants!

We hope to make the mission available for changes after its full release - thanks for understanding!

Dedicated Server
It's strongly advised to the run mission on a dedicated server to improve performance. To further improve performance for clients, 1-2 headless clients are recommended.

To install:
  • Subscribe to the workshop item
  • Find the file named `(numbers)_legacy.bin` at `<steam install path>\steamapps\workshop\content\107410\2477873447`
  • Copy and rename the file to `vn_mf_latest.cam_lao_nam.pbo`
  • Upload the file to the `mpmissions` folder on your server

For an alternative download, use a website for downloading workshop items such as:
https://steamworkshopdownloader.io/

Some hosting providers are also able to download the mission directly using a Steam Workshop integration.

In order to see the mission in-game, the server must have the CDLC loaded.

LAN Hosting
LAN hosting isn't advised, especially with large player numbers. However, it does work for small numbers of players.

To install, subscribe to the workshop mod. You'll then see the mission available when attempting to a host a server, when you have the CDLC enabled.

Recommended Settings
The following things are guidelines for experiencing Mike Force as it's designed:
  • Set the AI to Regular difficulty. This can be using the normal "Regular" difficulty setting, or by setting `aiLevelPreset = 1` in your Arma 3 Profile's custom difficulty settings.
  • Play with TFAR. TFAR significantly improves communication among teams, and reduces unnecessary background chatter.
  • Play without ACE. ACE is a fantastic mod, but it's also large and touches a lot of Arma's core gameplay. This might have unintended consequences on the balance of the mission. If you do want to play with ACE, it's *strongly* advised to disable ACE medical. It will conflict with the CDLC's revive system, and will also make the game significantly harder.

Instructions and Tutorial
How to play is documented in the in-game field manual. A full tutorial is in the works, and should be coming soon!

I am having this issue where I connect to servers and it keeps saying failed to connect. I'm not sure why since I have both Mike Force and the DLC, can anyone help me?

The first quality of life update has been released! We're aiming to drop the next one in the next couple of weeks.
Adamos12303 Sep 16 @ 8:37am 
Btw my mistake. I thought you posted the link about roadmap for this scenario my bad. Actually cool they put a big update, should've post the announcement like the other stuff (GM CDLC, small updates)
Adamos12303 Sep 16 @ 8:16am 
@Machine Gun Kelly Jesus Christ turbo fan here. Scenario mby is free but to use this scenerio you have to pay for the CDLC. It's like "This minecraft Server is completly free for users... but you need to buy minecraft". Also there was no updates for a long long time and they come out with this 1 month ago yet it'll be some time before any updates will be. This scenerio had potencial but it just having no update for a long time after the release got bored very quickly. Also your stupid argument "Don't like it? Do it yourself then to show us how to do it". Shitty argument that is used whenever you have no good point to prove anything.

@Leeu - Hmmm...'take our money'? This is a FREE scenario! And because YOU think 'this or that is good', does NOT mean OTHERS DO, it is even possible, or the devs like/want that.

This is also in the BETA STAGE! It is NOT FINAL! Even if it was, YOU PAID NOTHING FOR IT! Do not like it? DO NOT USE IT!

NO ONE made you download this BETA mod!

If you have issues with MAP, this is NOT the place to complain!


And also 'Mr. I Know It All', dead project? HAHAHA Hardly! They have the next version in testing RIGHT NOW ON THE RC BRANCH!

See: https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/235864-sog-prairie-fire-rc-branch-changelog/



If you do not like this mod, then create your own mod and show all of us 'how to do it right'.

Until that time, show some courage and backbone, and APOLOGIZE to the devs and to us for your improper comments!

Leeu Sep 14 @ 9:56pm 
Dead project. Happy to take our money but not take pages and pages of free feedback, hints, tips from server admins and community members from all over the web on how to improve it. Shame.Shame.

I've edited quite a bit and made significant changes to gameplay to suit my own needs but no one is allowed to publish or share edits of the mission files due to SGD restrictions. Not a bad thing but there has been no notion of an actual update or changes being implemented by SGD Publishing..
