successfully started my own sandbox room .... took a bit to figure out but I got it done .. not sure how to assign objectives ...Finally learned how to through grenades... but still dont know how to select things out of my inventory to use  such as med kit ... types of grenades .. so on so forth ....

Scrolling through grenades is a keybinding, you can find what yours is in the game configuration menu. (I've changed mine)

Medkits are used when injured via the scroll wheel/ options menu. An asterisk appears when one can be used.

Toolkits, explosives, drones, etc are also used via scroll wheel.

My controller quit working on the game ... but i spent the last 2 hours running around and duck and cover shooting rabbits to get a better feel of just using the keyboard and mouse ... also re set some of the keys to suit me a little better . I did a lot of flying as well ... had to re set keyboard for that too . But on a plus note i was able to take off and land with little to no damage to the chopper  . Landings are a bit slow but i will get better with it in time. .. 

I need a mic ... the mic i was using yesterday was a RockBand actual mic with a string around it to hang on my neck .... it worked .. but when i get funds i will get something better .. have to use what ya got .....

I'm finding chopper controls very annoying using the mouse.  Sometimes moving the mouse left/right will rotate the chopper, other times it will roll it.  I never know which it's going to do, and it's very frustrating.

The directional/mini-compass that was in persistent in the middle is pretty cool. I will have to look for that. Also, there seemed to be a chat notifier or something that would pop up on the right; I wonder what that was.

That's a ShackTac mod I believe in regards to the compass.

It is the first mission in the adapt folder ... where you are alone and have to find your way to delta squad .... it is a solo mission ... the AI are really tough to get through with just a handgun with only 1 clip ... you have to really do some stealth thinking .... I finally beat it .... but now stuck trying to take down a convoy and retrieve the supply truck and take it to the hideout.

​Run straight into the ruins in the first village, the dead rebels have ammo, a rifle, map and gps I believe.

​There was a patrol of two guys, they go towards some buildings and you can sneak into the rubble before they fire. They will fire, don't get me wrong, but you'll be in cover. Then the helicopter comes in to drop off more, you can either mow those guys down, or take off around the back towards the hills before they get out. 

Worked for me, ended up fully armed and ready to go for the rest of that mission.

They started firing on me as soon as I got the binoculars ... So I had to hit the tree line to the left and crawled north till the last 2 rows of houses ... had to stay prone across the road and there was a body there where I got a map but every time I tried to get the weapon  the game shut down ...  once I figured that out I had to crawl to the northern most house and wait for the 6 that came in on the helo ... once I tagged them I could open the map and keep tabs on them . Crawled between the 2 rows of houses till i ended up finding a weapon .... once I got that I was on the other side of town and booked azz up and over hill in a zig zag .... ducked in to the first house I seen ... ducked behind that back gate of that house till trucks went by and booked it to the other side .... stayed south to the 2 broken down buildings there to finally make my RV with Delta ....

That mission was a bit intense ....

That convoy mission was getting that way too but I ended up getting a lucky break on that one ... Staged my truck at the stop sign and my mines on both sides of the truck  in the grass .... I set myself up high and the team down the road by the first house .... once I took out the gun truck I got back to the team and the cargo truck booked azz right for us leaving all his men behind .. I took a shot on the truck and it stopped in the road and tried to turn around to get back ... I ran behind the truck and started shooting till the driver got out and took him out ... was able to jump in the truck and took off about 1/4 mile and had the team run to me .... 2 of the 4 made it but we got the truck rather easy like ...

​For that ambush mission I parked the truck and team way out of sight. Laid the explosives spaced so it would hit the first and last truck. Waited. Blew those up, killed the driver of the other truck, mopped up a couple survivors, ditched the AI and drove the truck back to the base. lol
