Last year, I released quickly one nice modification to my custom Malden CWR2 Domination and despite being only announced really only on this blog and to few of my friends last year, I really enjoyed creating it. So this year I decided to put off some dust from it and also port it to a fully winter themed island of Winter Kolgujev from the latest CWR2 mod. Again, this is based on Xeno’s Domination and original port to Everon by OC, then customized on a scripting level with multiple features.
Christmas/Winter centric features:
- Permanent SNOW FALL + FOG during the mission to have a deep atmosphere + in Malden also custom environment sounds, that is why the file is a bit bigger.
- All CWR2 infantry units are using Winter camouflage (see pictures below, great work from CWR2 mod team to release this)
- There are Christmas presents under a tree for your team, but be careful, if you fail to protect some girls in the base, you will loose the presents.
- Custom Christmas carol music in intro + if you enter the Christmas party house.
Plus all the features that exist from the main project of my custom ArmA2 Domination Malden mission:
- CWR (Cold War Rearmed) Mod setting creating the best nostalgia atmosphere for the old Operation Flashpoint 1 from 2000 (now called ArmA: Cold War Crisis).
- Integrated zorilya’s Garrison Script 1.5.2 to have even better in buildings town battles.
- New selectable mission parameter allowing you to have choose if you want radio towers destroyable not only by satchels, but by anything. Enabling anything to destroy them hides their map marker so that at least you have to find them and not only point an artillery on them.
- New selectable mission parameter allowing you to have ArmA2 rifles available (including Javelin), by default it is off as this is still 1985 CWR2 and I want this mission to be primary still good old 1985 CWR2 and no any modern warfare toys playfield, but if someone wants to have some fun change, it is available for you. No Arrowhead weapons btw as desert skins are definitely out of touch with Malden.
- Created and added OFP/CWR2 soundtrack player to the “Status Dialog”, when activated the original OFP 16 track playlist is played in random order indefinitely to get the best OFP 1985 atmosphere in coop. (NOTE: See picture below to find “Music ON”/”Music OFF” buttons)

There is a small bug in the Winter Kolgujve island at the beginning that shows a error message about a wrong marker function, this an annoyance from the Kolgujev Island having no real names for Towns, please ignore this as it is harmless.
