      Mission Idea

      I was just part of a zeus mission that was an absolute blast!

      Here's the basics:
      -Team has to defend an area of an island
      -The team starts with 100 points
      -The base has an ammo box with everything in it
      -Players can request any vehicle they want at a cost of points
      -Players can request FOB's at a cost of points
      -Players have complete freedom of the area they need to defend and can split up as much as they want

      TFR is a must! This stops players getting killed and then giving away where they enemy came from.

      Point costs:
      1 Point
      -Respawn

      2 points
      -FOB
      -Ammo Box

      3 points
      -Unarmed transport vehicle
      -Repair of vehicle
      -Rearm of vehicle

      5 points
      -APC
      -IFV
      -Small Boats

      8 Points
      -Tanks

      10 Points
      -Jets / helis

      20 points
      -Destroyer vessels



      There is a border that seperates your side from the enemy. You can go into the enemy area but there is tons of AA and defences.

      Zeus is in charge of spawning in the enemies that will be entertaining to defend against (inf vs inf - tank vs tank, etc) - This part is important, we had the most fun when the enemy was small in numbers and not overwhelming. Zeus started to throw enemies at us and it wasn't much fun at that point so Zeus really has to cater to the player and find the right balance


      Here is how my game went (with roughly 10 players) - small woodland island with a few small towns
      -2 players man destroyer with arty onboard
      -1 jet for called in air strikes
      -1 weasel AT IFV to scout the area at provide AT when jet cannot
      -1 roaming sniper sticking to the forest
      -Rest go infantry (I took operator slot with a MK16)

      Game starts and everyone requests their vehicles
      I get a ride to the largest town in the middle of the island to patrol
      Jet stays in air on standby
      Everyone splits off to different areas of the map to patrol
      We setup a FOB outside of the town I am in as a respawn point with ammobox

      Jet detects a APC near a town on the west - I jump in with the weasel players to investigate
      Sniper spots APC and the weasel disables it with the jet strafing the area to finish off the inf that jumped out
      Return to our patrols
      During my patrol I notice movement at a barn not too far away - It's an enemy FOB they setup!
      Infantry moves in and we nade them to oblivion!
      Similar stuff hapens with random fighting over a few hours - Thanks to TFR, you can never be sure if the enemy has infiltrated and take out some of your team.

      Missions ends on a finale where we defend a large town using all our assets!

      Highly recommended to use a custom map (like chern or similar) and ACE with custom weapons.
      Players enjoy them selves as they get complete freedom but they know their actions will affect the points the team has.
      It is also recommended to not have a squad leader and let the players think for themselves to get the best effect and enjoyment!

      Anyways, A bit of a long post but I haven't enjoyed a game of Arma like that in a long time!
      Let me know what you think!

      alright so i guess you used cup weapons and vehicles because otherwise a destroyer would be way too strong.
      For the mission itself i would use zargabad , utes or southern sahrani thats the desert one.
      Or we could use lithium

      It was CUP and some more weapon mods,

      Vanilla vehicles only but we were using ACE so the weasel only had 6 rockets

      Sounds interesting.

      How were your points tracked, did Zeus write them on a paper somewhere or was it part of the mission?
