I'm fairly experienced with creating basic Occp/Invd -missions and so on, and recently I've become tempted of Asymmetric. I had no idea how much in-depth aspects it was holding with it all along. I have used it previosly in Stratis which is a fairly easy map for Alive due to having only a few objectives and them being apart from each other unlike some other maps. I thought Lithium (The FFAA map, what a masterpiece) was unindexed for civilians so Asymm wouldn't work but the situation has apparently changed now (?) so I tried;
I'm creating a mission, with Blufor units controlling the north of the map, then I created "objectives only" TAOR in to the middle, and TAOR for the insurgents down south. Problem for me is that although I do spawn insurgents in to the civilian placements, the OPCOM orders them to move into the civilian placements they're already controlling as they spawned inside them on the south side of the map. I figured, they might be placing installations (although there's already some). But this is kind of annoying, since the only thing that seems to matter to the OPCOM is the southern area of its TAOR. The other troops are not being waypointed anywhere, they just stand still. And oddly enough I noticed plenty of the insurgents being profiles of 1 soldier guarding places, I have never seen that before.
I have waited, with x4 speed, but the OPCOM just keeps the troops stationary at the big city of the southern area and elsewhere, maybe roaming the objectives in the big city a bit since the city has various of objectives inside it. I also tried to spawn insurgents to Mil Placements only, Civ Placements being "objective only", and they did the same thing. Focus being _only_ in the southern area of its TAOR. Doing as I described worked fantasticly in Stratis. I've tried for hours and tweaked this over and over again.
The mission I'm trying to create is ISAF (NATO peacekeeping troops in Afganistan) being in the north, then a 'no-mans-land' where the enemy could proceed to as I'm contesting to keep the area safe, and then the Taliban stronghold in the south. Although my idea of stronghold might not be the best idea whilst working with Asymm OPCOM, the Taliban tend to behave in an Asymm OPCOM manner in real life so that's kind of a must-have for me right now. I'm just telling the scenario if you guys could come up with any alternative solution. Cheers!
