@SpyderBlack723 I can try to take a look later (Working on a Kunduz Insurgency mission later). For a methods of actually Halo'ing the AI, I'll either go the route of transporting all squad members to you once you hit the ground (Much easier) or having them Halo with you (Much harder). I'll try to update it tonight if I have time.
Spyder, I believe the new ACE update has a halo capability for the AI. Can't remember exactly... But it's worth a look.
Here are some missions for you guys:
The Syndikat Regime has ruled with an iron fist over the Tanoan Islands for years. Now, with the world clamoring for an end to the atrocities, British Forces have launched an invasion of the Island chain in an attempt to crush the regime and bring freedom back to the Tanoan people.
For those unfamiliar with my style...this is a long term, persistent multiplayer campaign designed to be utilized with the outstanding ALiVE war room. It is best played with a dedicated server to save progress, however you can absolutely play this campaign on your own as well and have a blast.
Some features include:
Mods needed available on Steam Workshop
*Not required but highly recommended since ACE is utilized
Mods needed that are NOT available on Steam Workshop are listed below
Custom Faction Configs (Note: These can be used in Non-ALiVE missions as well)

Edited version of @highhead's official ALiVE insurgency on Tanoa. I basically changed the player faction to NATO Pacific, added some lights so you can see where your resources are, added some vehicles you can drive, added an AI Recruitment Center for small groups, and enabled database saving to War Room.
Requires ALiVE, CBA, Spyder Addons and Apex.
Currently it retains the 2 playable slots. Feel free to edit that to your needs or I can always change that if anyone wants.
EDIT: Oh I also disabled auto-tasks because the first one I saw was a sabatoge mission, outside of the enemy AO (with no enemies at the task) where I had to blow up a laundry pole. :( If you want to automatically get your clothing destruction back on, feel free to reenable the tasking or request your own task via the tablet.
^^^ Quick update. BIS apparently doesn't care enough to ensure their Eden settings work without pop up errors, so I transferred all the relevant stuff (mission name, load screen image, author name) to old reliable description.ext.
I also added some boats near where you spawn to the mission too, if you get the urge to SAIL. Though be warned you'll need to teleport any recruited friendly AI with the tablet to the boats area. The whole base has chain-link fences around it, which is apparently kryptonite to Arma AI (they can't see the openings in the fences WTF???).

Last update for now. Ditched the VTOL for a regular transport chopper, and made the mission a SP/COOP 1-4 instead of only 2 player slots. Gotta say, it's pretty cool! Nice work Highhead!
I decided to make the same mission, on steroids. Check a few posts down in the forum here. It's an insurgency, but also has a conventional battle going.
I played it for about 90 minutes last night and had a real good time. I took an assault boat east and started chipping away at the insurgents and blowing up some of their HQ's. Tanoa is fucking awesome.
I haven't gone south yet to fight CSAT yet though. I personally like insurgencies a lot so I think I'll stay East where the insurgency is for awhile and keeping bringing it to the Syndikat. :)
Check it out and let me know if you have any suggestions (that I can incorporate without any outside mods).
I also have a bunch of insurgencies on BI forums (with mods). Here's one: https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/topic/192272-alive-spcoop-1-20-inshallah-insurgency/
Well I wouldn't say it would take too much work to get playable. You could probably just build yourself an insurgent base somewhere and throw some playable insurgents down. ALiVE will keep the battle going in the background.
But I don't think players can build insurgent recruitment centers/IED factories/weapons depots. And without a human to blow up the HQ's, they'll just keep spawning and spawning.
I'd say if you cut back on the beginning number of insurgents just a bit, and increased the number in the Commander module for min civs present for recruitment centers to a very high number, it could be doable if you kept the shortcomings in mind.
On the other hand, if you were playing against a human on BLUFOR, I don't think you'd have to do hardly anything. They could work away on chipping at the insurgency while you just caused terror to BLU spawns.
Never tried this myself though but it could work I'd think.
@Riksen Do you guys know how I can virtualize a pre-placed unit through its own init? I dont want to synchronize every single one of them with the Virtual Profile module .. that will just make the mission look like a huge mess in the editor.
Just use the option to virtualize all units except for those synced. Be careful with empty vehicles and stuff like that though. Make sure those don't get virtualized.
I generally sync my own virtual groups and put up with the mess. :)
