Find attached a mission that marks out all the Location Objects on your map.
I've been asked to provide an example on how location objects are used.
Say I want to setup automated random ambush points. So I look for roads within 50m of Rock and Vegetation objects to play ambush inf and an ied or mines. The more locations the map maker provides, the more randomness for the mission. Other examples are:
- FlatArea for setting up large camps
- FlatAreaCity for bunkers
- StrongpointArea for MG Nests or Roadblocks
- FlatAreaCitySmall for UAV terminals/Field Hospitals, etc
CityCenter objects and Neighbor links between different cities are used for Ambient Civilians, Ambient Traffic, and Ambient Vehicles. Ambient Traffic uses Neighbors to work out where to drive too.
The mission provided contains examples of location objects on Chernarus, Takistan, Lingor and Fallujah.
