Hi folks,

Operation Tracer v1 is ready for testing.

I hoped to get this out sooner but I've been bogged down over at Serellan's site, yep admin over there as well and boy has it been busy.

Anyway, this map is built on a clean version of the mission 03 landscape.

This mission has been fully tested on my dedicated server and no problems were noted.

New features:
I have created a new small prop for this mission, I've called it the "Laser Activated Proximity Mine" or LAPM, yep I know it sounds like something out of star wars but it's just a laser beam that spans a doorway so when you interrupt the beam it triggers a explosive device. These lasers are currently being used for alarm systems so it's nothing to futuristic.

Seems to work quite well so I hope you like it.

Next is something that should have been possible right from the start, I found out why vehicles are unable to drive out of buildings, you will see in this mission a tank that destroys a doorway and exits a building, I've only used this once in this mission as it needs a different design of building to work but expect to see panhards, pickups and tanks coming out of buildings to greet you in my next mission.

There are two new custom made buildings in this mission both of which are my own design so they are not a remake of any stock building, plus there is the new LAPM prop, pics below.

That's about it, I hope you enjoy the mission, :thumbsup:

Thanks for the replies, pleased you like the buildings/prop so far.

I would just like to say that Spik@ gave me the idea of the LAPM but then left me to make the prop and figure out how to get it working in the game. :rolleyes:

Don't you just love friends like that (he knows I'm only kidding). :lol: ;)

Hi John,

I tried the mission last night and had a blast! I played regular weapons on "easy". Got killed a lot, LOL! I thought the lasers were way cool. I should have tried to walk through them but didn't think of it at the time. I will do it next time. The breakaway glass was a nice touch as well. Haven't seen that used much. I only saw a couple of things to point out. One of the tanks got stuck, not the one that runs up and down the long street but the other one. I'll see if it happens again the next time I play. Also, on the SHORAD objective, on the far West wall of the building you have placed metal sheeting in the opening (with a walk door in it). The sheeting does not make it all the way to the concrete pad below it. It sits about a foot off of the floor. Also, at the beginning of the mission I turned left at the first intersection and headed towards the objective in that direction. As I approached it I activated a trigger for snipers. I was staying to the left side of the street and a sniper spawned right above me. You may want to have the players activate that trigger a little sooner/farther away from the objective.

That is all that I noticed. I must say that I really like the new buildings and landscapes that you are doing. It really does make the action more interesting when you don't know the layout of a building before you walk into it. Can I put in a plea for a "container ship" mission. So far there is only the one mission that uses that and I think it would be cool to have another one.

Cheers,
Rahn

Who needs enemies with friends like that!? :rocky:

...and it's one thing to think of something, but a while different ballgame to make it! Like I said: +1! ;)

Thanks for testing Rahn.

I'll take a look at the things you mentioned and get them fixed, when I played the mission I thought I saw a sniper spawn in view but I said nah, couldn't have been, I should have check it before I posted the mission here.

Spik@, lets just say that without all those hours of endless chatting discussing different options this prop wouldn't have been made. I won't mention the other topics we discussed. :whistle:

If endless chatting results in these neat new gadgets, all is good! Other subjects are best left 'unspoken' :rolleyes:

On to the next cool addition!!! :clapping:

John

Another great mission. Well done. Played through twice with regular and Rahn's modded weapons. Had no problems. Using Rahn's mod I was able to take out the tanks quickly & easily but as Rahn said using the regular weapons I had to work a position to get close in. This took more and as a result one of the tanks got stuck. I think it was the one on the way to the Shorad from the prisoners but would need to check to be absolutely sure. I really like the new buildings and as Rahn said it is good not to know the layout before you enter that makes it much more of a test. However the whole mission is a stern test - plenty of AI waiting to shoot you in the back if you pass a builiding without checking first.

Frame count was up and no lag experienced.

Good work

Anthony :rocky:

Hi John.

All is fine on easy mode except few things I found:

The tank mentioned before is stuck for me too:

At Transmitter objective after cleared right side room (from pic.) and plant c4 on the last left side doors, two very bad guys with a big guns spawned right behind my backs I'm sure I was cleared whole area around the building, ground floor and right side room:
Posted Image

and the last two not important things:

bad angle of the window, the glass is "bleeding" thought the wall and you can broke it shooting at right down side cornet of the building:
Posted Image

the tree at extraction point:

personally, I like this colour :) but here is this same tree looks normal... weird

I like the new props, but i was reacting as an .. ekhm... and went stright for codes and didn't check if they will not let me inside the rooms :/

Cheers,
Daro

I have played this map 3 times and have enjoyed it. Today while playing one of the other ghosts fell off this roof next to the extraction zone into the extraction zone before all the objectives were complete. It is a great snipe position once you blow the door to extraction but cannot get out before extraction door has been blown. Our ghost had to be killed to spawn back inside the playing area. So type of block needs to be put in place to secure the two cutout places.

John,

Thanks for another mission. We played it last night on a dedicated server with three people, regular weapons.
We noticed the same things that have already been mentioend. Loved the new buildings and the additional details
such as the breakable glass and furnishings inside some buildings. I our opinion we would like to see more AI
in the later versions. Maybe random small patrols in areas. We did try to walk through the lasers and it went boom.
One thing I did not see mentioned by anyone else, in you screenshot the laser bars are red but in game for us they
were white. Can't wait for your next effort.

Thanks for all the replies folks, much appreciated.

Daro, I've seen that tree problem before, have you got any GR:AW map conversions form Bogie or Mexicobob in your custom levels folder. For some reason the GR:AW textures can conflict with the stock textures, if you have any of these try the mission again after removing them.

I'll look at all the other problems and get a new version posted soon.

Cheers, :thumbsup:
John
