Arabian Campaign

The Arabian Campaign is one of the biggest and most successful projects in the history of Original War. Its plot is based on Altar's original notes (OW creators), which could be found in the game's data folders. Play as the mercenary commander, Heike Steyer, and lead your Sheikh's troops to victory... or betray them and take a major part in creating the Legion. New maps, super interesting plot, complex missions, thousands of SAIL code lines and non-linear gameplay. It's more complex than 99% of the common mods and maybe even the original campaigns. Prepare for a serious OW-ArCamp addiction.

This is the same mod as "The Arabian Campaign WIP" but due to circumstances beyond our control that workshop item was corrupted and thus no longer functional. To get the newest updates you have to subscribe to this mod. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The second mission is very poorly thought out. You mustn't attack the base, otherwise you'll lose because you don't know exactly why you mustn't attack. I thought it was just because she was too well defended, but actually it wasn't. So you just have to kill the few soldiers lying around, but there is far too much time before the reinforcements for the little that there is to do. And since we must not attack the base, we stay at a distance, and when the reinforcements arrive, the scientists obviously have time to flee if we stayed away. Obviously, we can restart a game knowing all that, but the mission is very poorly done.

Très mauvaise campagne et ne rend pas justice au jeu original, difficulté encensé et IA incohérente, je ne conseille sous aucun prétexte pas ce mod

So i just downloaded the campaign, do i need to re-launch the main game? When i tried it and looked under mods i didn't find anything. Pretty sure i didn't miss a step after the download, Or maybe i'm looking in the wrong spot? any help would be appreciated.

So I got to mission 15 siding with Arabs. I play it on easy. And really the one who made this level shouldn't ever make any RTS levels. It sucks hard. The Legion which you have to eliminate with time ticking is on such high ground that you cannot win this with rockets and grenadiers because their flamers will reach you. So you should have a lot of autonomous bombs to go past it as fast as you can. It would only work if you would know how map looks beforehand, because in the end you get only what you got from earlier part of mission where you go in blind with knowledge that "legion is almost defeated and Russians have base on the siberite source". Well Legion isn't defeated and is the main enemy attacking you constantly. Then even if you capture enemy outpost you cannot even build barracks to train monkeys spawning around for kamikaze or build up anything else becasue there are no crates on the map... I'm really not sure I will be able to finish this mission. ON EASY.

First misions are fun, the last missions post mission 11 are the worst missions any RTS campaign can have. Tedious, boring, not creative in any way throwing waves and waves of enemies at you just because it can be done, With stupid side mission conditions like "gather resources" in a mission with time counter where you have to destroy 10 fully stacked bases with your crappy units like machine gun solar powered trike...

Complete in the sense that all missions are there. Still missing some texture here and there.

Legion side was great, Arabian side could you some work.

Would it be a good idea to have a dummy mission 12 instead? like the entire mission is just "pick which side you want" so at least you don't have to repeat mission 11
