This is war is an all out war scenario that plays itself out on the island of Skira. As you embark on your journey, you can recruit soldiers into your squad and approach your objectives in any way you choose. This also includes a hotkey system and command system giving you dynamic objectives to accomplish throughout the entire game.
This is the second coming of the full freeroam all out war scenario. In this mission you can play along with up to 3 other players in a dynamic environment where giving ground can be just as important as taking ground.
To install This is War simply extract the folder named "This Is War" from the zip file and place it in the "data_win/missions" folder found inside your main game directory. You will also need to run OFDR Hotkeys to access the hotkey functions from inside the game. If you do not have the hotkey app simply copy "OFDR-Hotkeys.exe" to your main game directory. Create a shortcut to it on your desktop and run it as administrator when you start Dragon Rising.
v2.2 has added many new locations and props to the mission. If you have any previous version of This Is War you must uninstall it before you install the new version. Completely delete the old This Is War folder as it may contain data that can cause errors in the new version.
Hotkeys will be available from your numpad keys and will allow you to do the following.
0- Save game data/Create a checkpoint
1- Recruit soldier to your fireteam
2- Recruit fireteam to your squad
3- Dismiss fireteams from your squad
4- Advance time 1 hour
5- Cycle weather type
6- Cycle fog density
7- Turn scoreboard off/on
8- Turn on/off the onscreen debugging (off by default)
9- Turn on/off the debug logging feature (on by default)
This is an all out war scenario where the ai will move to objective areas and fight on their own, but the player can recruit ai to their squad and fireteam. Your objectives will be displayed along with information regarding the status of the capture points on the island. Just follow the objectives displayed on the screen. If you want you can also move onto other areas of the island. Provided the us doesn't control everything in the area you will find a fight.
Due to the efficiency of the new OFDR Mission Editor Expansion this mission has doubled in size and intensity featuring prop built locations all over the island in addition to all of the locations you might be used to. Like all of my missions I intend to fully support and bugfix any problems found within This is War so if you find a problem, please report it. Also, I've loaded so many prop locations onto the map you might run into something here or there that's a bit out of place, say a tent in the air or ammo crates half way buried in the ground, please let me know if you stumble on something like this as well.
As always, have fun!!
