ArmA Reforger mission template **WIP**

Pvt. Zwerger

Recommended Posts

Here is a basic Mission Template for ArmA Reforger that I created. It includes all the necessary prefabs and setting for a Reforger Coop online Mission.  
The US side is the playable faction and the USSR are the OPFOR faction. There is a small town that called Levie that i occupied by a small Opfor group with Patrol Waypoints that cycle.


Feel free to use this Mission template as a baseline for your own Mission. 


Several features will be added to the Mission with version updates. Those updates will be posted in the replies of this post.


For Questions: Just ask in the comments or contact me on Discord/TeamSpeak

- place a cycle waypoint and under the point Cycle Waypoints add the waypoints that we added in the step before (WP1, WP2, WP3, WP4) use the + button for more waypoint spaces -> Name the cycle waypoint (WPC1 -> same name that we gave the AI group for its waypoint)

- create a getin waypoint (AIWaypoint_GetIn.et) on or near the static weapon (the weapon has to be with in the blue area of the waypoint) -> under Entity Name give the name of the static weapon "MG1" -> set Completion Type to any and select Is Priority -> lastly name the Waypoint GETMG1 (same as the given name to the AI)
