Hi guys,

Just a note, this post will cater towards DayZ Origins players.

I played a ton of Arma 2's DayZ Origins over the summer, and, while Arma 3 is great, I am starting to miss it. I especially miss Sector B, aka Salvation City.

In the hopes of playing it again, I "ported" it over to Arma 3, and now have a fully working Arma 3 Sector B, complete with OP AIs, 50 caliber guns, and helicopters. I substituted a C130J for the DC3, and have two MI17s on the runway for player use.

However, I had the idea that the Sector B mission could only be the start, and am now working on a longer mission to "Take Back Taviana", where the idea is that you finish Sector B, go to Taviana, and through a variety of submissions involving tanks, jets, and helis, you must take out AI scattered around the two (now 3) Taviana Islands.

Basically, I need ideas from you guys on how to make this mission as good as it possibly can be. After a night of work and planning I so far have:

1) Kill guards at Taviana, and kill the Mayor.
2) When the Mayor is killed, the C130J and an MI17 unlock.
3) Fly one of these to Yaroslav Airport, and land at the control tower (heli would be best option).
4) When arrived, proceed to old military base just north of the airport, and take out two AI which have a 50% spawn chance and patrol the base.
5) The base will have weapons caches which you can rearm at.
6) You then proceed to the southern end of the runway, where a tank will be waiting (with just enough fuel to get to Sevestopal)
7) You will use this tank to drive to Sevestopal and take out some AI along the road.

And that's where I've gotten so far.

Need ideas for: more submissions, objectives, and checkpoints.
Also need input on the periodic weapons caches: should they contain all weapons in the game + RU addon weapons I've added, or just enough weapons to complete the next objective?

Also, currently you need to download a large, 600MB file that will give you all the mods and move files from Arma 2, Arma 2OA folder to play this mission, and then set a bunch of launch options in Steam. I can understand some people not wanting to download this and go through all this trouble. Any ideas to get around this? I was thinking something like hosting it on DayZCommander or something like it, so at least it would be from a trusted source.

Thanks Everyone!
