Lost Sectors: index and planning

Post by NikkoJT » Mon May 14, 2018 12:38 pm

Hello and welcome to another lovely wonderful NikkoJT post.

Lost Sectors are a set of low-playercount, low-complexity missions for use on Tuesdays or as starter/wind-down missions. The aim is to build a varied library of missions that can be used as fallbacks or filler without any particular thought or pre-planning on the host's part.

Lost Sectors all follow the same format:
- One squad, plus one attachment, plus four extra riflemen in ASL element
- Very standard loadouts
- Simple objectives
- Small AO centred on a particular interesting terrain area
- Narrative setting as small, non-critical missions in a pre-war or post-war period of low-intensity conflict
- Focus on tactical decisions rather than a grand plan

All current Lost Sectors (Altis) have NATO squads with ROK UN Peacekeepers as the extra riflemen. I'm planning to duplicate this with other factions for each island - Malden will have CSAT squads with Pacific CSAT extras, and Tanoa will have TAF squads with Russian extras.

Available Lost Sectors (also viewable on FAMDB or in the mission feedback forum):

Altis
C20 Charkia-Dorida
Infantry squad moves into a wooded area containing CSAT. CSAT has a Kamysh. Attachment: MAT

C20 Frini North

Malden

C20 Corton Valley
An infantry squad sweeps uphill through a wooded valley for Mafia. Attachment: MMG

Tanoa Lost Sectors are planned, but I don't have any specific locations or ideas yet.
