WHY PLAY TTI AND HOW IT WORKS:

  1. CHOOSE FROM THE WIDE VARIETY OF MODERN AIRCRAFT
  2. CHOOSE ANY MISSION TYPE TO BE GENERATED

    - This mission can generate a WIDE VARIETY of mission scenarios.

    - Ground missions are generated in a random location on the map, with a random pool of units, and placed in different positions within the mission zone. Each ground mission generation will be completely different every time one is generated.

    - There are many potential areas for ground missions that utilize the majority of the map, you'll be able to explore many areas of the map for a wide variety of terrain challenges and experiences.

    - Air missions will generate a random flight of enemy bandits. The airframe, of the bandits will be random. Their initial spawn point will be random. Their altitude, waypoints and waypoint altitude will be randomized every time as well. A simple yet very comprehensive dynamic A2A mission generator makes for an amazing and unpredictable A2A experience! Choose from a variety of A2A difficulties as well.
  3. You can switch (pause, choose slot) to change aircraft at ANY TIME without having to quit the mission to reload a new one!

    You'll never need to create your own scenarios (too predictable) again!
  4. Amazing Auto-lasing JTACs will designate targets for you without any interaction menu fumbling (no 9-line, readback, buggy comms) Other scripts include CTLD (helo menu for crates/building/sling loading) and an AWACs reporter to help you locate bandits.
  5. The highly dynamic mission generation engine of this mission is FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE. You can edit mission spawns to your liking, disable or enable auto-spawning missions/a2a ai/random air traffic, and you can even customize the amount and types of ground targets at mission zones!
  6. The mission is ENDLESS. Repeat or do new missions as long as you'd like.

FEATURES:
  • Wide variety of aircraft to choose from
  • "Never the same experience" for every type of mission.
  • Ground and Sea Mission generate enemy units dynamically, at random positions within an AO, and their unit composition will be random as well.
  • Air to air missions will generate random enemy aircraft types, and they will spawn at a random position, and will have random tasks/waypoints of their own each time an air to air mission is generated!
  • Do things on your own time. Want to fly around a bit before you start? Sure, accept and start missions on your command.
  • Several types of missions to choose from
  • Do several missions at once (multiplayer recommended) for a larger-scale operation
  • Configure all and any aspects of all of the spawnable missions with configurable mission options
  • Configure other mission options to play the way you want
  • JTAC Autolase
  • Repeatable/endless missions that are never the same each time
  • Call in for backup friendly AI CAP reinforcements
  • Great for co-op
  • Great for beginners and veterans
WHAT'S INCLUDED?

NEW AND IMPROVED CUSTOMIZABLE VERSION:


A2G Missions are fully customizable:
Edit how many ground target threats at each mission type
Edit what kind of ground target threats at each mission type
Configure which missions are auto-spawned without using the menu. If all auto-spawning missions are disabled, it means you have to spawn them manually with the radio menu.


A2A Missions are fully customizable:
Edit how often enemy A2A random spawns occur
Edit if you want A2A random spawns or not
Edit the aircraft that appear during A2A mission spawns (configure this for both random and manual spawns)


Details below, and within the zip when downloaded.



Additionally, all versions of TTI include:

"ZEUS" MAP MARKER SPAWNS AND COMMANDS:
You can CREATE and DESTROY units out of thin air at ANY location you choose on the F10 map, like in "Zeus" mode from ArmA 3. (Details in the briefing on how to use these commands)


-Spawn in enemy aircraft of your choosing and at the location you desire for practice. (Spawning list is in the briefing/readme)
-Spawn in a JTAC for your friend to control (via combined arms)
-Spawn in an Abrams tank for your friend or for your self to control (via combined arms)




Spawnable Units List: (also located in the readme and briefing!)
Spoiler:

REDFOR: (all are 2-ship groups)
  • f5_red
  • f4_red
  • f14_red
  • f16_red
  • f15_red
  • m2000_red
  • su30_red
  • su33_red
  • su27_red
  • mig21_red
  • mig29_red
  • drone_red
  • abrams_red
  • t80_red
  • bmp_red
  • truck_red
  • armor_group_red
  • infantry_group_red
BLUEFOR:
  • f5_blue
  • f4_blue
  • f14_blue
  • f16_blue
  • f15_blue
  • m2000_blue
  • su27_blue
  • mig21_blue
  • mig29_blue
  • drone_blue
  • abrams_blue
  • t80_blue
  • bmp_blue
  • truck_blue
  • armor_group_blue
  • infantry_group_blue
  • jtac


Currently a big limitation with this Zeus Spawning System is that you cannot stack the same unit type. Doing so will reset the unit by deleting the previous one and spawning a new one.
I'm working on improving this script to add the ability to stack units and more features, so please stay tuned for any updates.


____________________________________


EASILY EDIT AND CONFIGURE MISSION SPAWNING AND OTHER SETTINGS!

You can configure and personalize the many attributes of Air to Ground Missions, Air to Air spawns and JTAC settings within the mission editor easily.

There is a tutorial readme file on how to do this.

You can also just look here to see what kind of mission settings are editable and what they change:


HOW TO CHANGE MISSION SETTINGS:


GO TO THE TRIGGER LIST IN THE MISSION EDITOR (3rd icon under MIS on the LEFT PANEL)

On the FIRST TRIGGER, look in ACTIONS > DO SCRIPT.

There you can edit the number values for adjusting the mission properties.

AFTER EDITING, SAVE MISSION!!!!!

DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR THE NUMBER VALUES!!!

This is what each setting does:


Spoiler:


a2g_easy_autostart = SET TRUE OR FALSE if you want A2G Easy missions auto-spawning (will start automatically if there are no other a2g hard missions active)
a2g_hard_autostart
= SET TRUE OR FALSE if you want A2G Hard missions auto-spawning (will start automatically if there are no other a2g hard missions active)
a2g_helo_autostart
= SET TRUE OR FALSE if you want A2G helo missions auto-spawning (will start automatically if there are no other a2g helo missions active)
a2g_helo_inf_autostart
= SET TRUE OR FALSE if you want A2G helo infantry missions auto-spawning (will start automatically if there are no other a2g helo infantry assault missions active)
antiship_autostart
= SET TRUE OR FALSE if you want anti-ship missions auto-spawning (will start automatically if there are no other a2g missions active)

random_civ_air_traffic
= SET TRUE OR FALSE if you want random civilian air traffic doing their own thing at random airfields.

a2a_autospawn_enable
= SET TRUE OR FALSE if you want random enemy A2A spawns

a2a_respawn_time_min =
a2a_respawn_time_max =
(TIME IN SECONDS)
for a dynamic spawn time choose a minimum and maximum time between spawns or make them the same if you want a static time between spawns.

sam_enable = SET TRUE OR FALSE DEPENDING ON IF YOU WANT THERE TO BE RANDOM SAM SITES SPAWNING ON THE MAP OUTSIDE OF MISSION ZONES (TTI ALIVE ONLY)
sam_respawn_time = TIME IN SECONDS BETWEEN RANDOM SAM SITE SPAWN (TTI ALIVE ONLY)

jtac_smokes_targets = SET TRUE OR FALSE IF YOU WANT JTACS TO SMOKE LASED TARGETS!

You can set the number to 0 if you do not want that unit type at these missions.

a2g_hard_misc = how many MISC ground units (armor, unarmed, etc...) will spawn at a2g HARD
a2g_hard_aa = how many Anti Air ground units (shilka, ural AAA, soft single unit SAM like tunguska, osa) will spawn at a2g HARD
a2g_hard_sam = how many SAM ground units (armor, unarmed, etc...) will spawn at a2g HARD

a2g_easy_misc = how many MISC ground units (armor, unarmed, etc...) will spawn at a2g EASY
a2g_easy_aa = how many Anti Air ground units (shilka, ural AAA, soft single unit SAM like tunguska, osa) will spawn at a2g EASY
a2g_easy_sam = how many SAM ground units (armor, unarmed, etc...) will spawn at a2g EASY

a2g_helo_misc = how many MISC ground units (armor, unarmed, etc...) will spawn at a2g HELO
a2g_helo_aa = how many Anti Air ground units (shilka, ural AAA, soft single unit SAM like tunguska, osa) will spawn at a2g HELO

a2g_inf_troops = how many infantry ground units (troops) will spawn at a2g INFANTRY ASSAULT
a2g_inf_misc = how many MISC ground units (armor, unarmed, etc...) will spawn at a2g INFANTRY ASSAULT

RECENT Mission update changelog ():
Spoiler:



UPDATE 03/18/2019 - 1: v1.51c

- Further addressed and fixed an issue where EWRS and the MISSION SPAWNING radio menus were not properly working.

UPDATE 03/14/2019 - 1: v1.51b

- Added INS Stored Alignment to all F-14B slots
(This significantly shortens the INS alignment time when using "Fine Alignment")

- Implemented new F10 Radio Menu logic that refreshes the menu regularly so that new players that join after the host will also have access to the radio menu.

- Fixed an issue where the friendly A2A backup units did not have any weapons loaded.


UPDATE 03/13/2019 - 1: v1.51

- Added 2 F-14B slots to the mission

Note: I'm aware of the F10 Mission Spawning menus not working for anyone except for the host. I have a fix in place, but I need more time to test it to ensure it works properly. For now it's best ran with the host playing instead of using this mission on a dedicated machine if you wish to use the mission spawning and intel F10 menus.



UPDATE 03/04/2019 - 1: v1.50

- Changed TACAN frequencies of ships/tankers to fix AWACS D/L for the F/A-18C
- Added RWR for the MiG-19P
- Removed static objects on carriers


UPDATE 03/02/2019 - 1: v1.15a - HOTFIX

- Fixed a critical scripting error that broke mission spawns. All works now.
- AWACS Frequency returned to 251mhz AM as listed in the kneeboard and briefing.


UPDATE 02/12/2019 - 1: v1.15

- Added a new "A2A Intercept Bombers" mission type.
- Added new config options to set time for enemy bomber auto spawns and options to enable/disable them.



ARCHIVED AND OLDER Mission update changelog ():
Spoiler:

UPDATE 5/24/2017:
- Initial Release of TTI - Persian Gulf

UPDATE 05/30/2018:
- Added F/A-18C Hornet Module
- Fixed TCN Frequencies/Callsigns for AI Logistics


UPDATE 06/30/2018:
- Added more units, SAMs and aircraft to the random unit pool to expand the dynamic mission generation.
- Added a readme.txt to help players create more slots for multiplayer.


HOTFIX 07/01/2018:
- Fixed a bug where A2G Hard would repeat messages and not spawn anything in the Non-Smoked Targets version


UPDATE 07/10/2018:
- Each A2G Mission type now has 10 zones, making for 40 possible mission locations, with endless unit variety/composition/placement within zone.
This change brings a much more unpredictable dynamic to the mission generation script.


UPDATE 07/18/2018:
- Mission file updated and saved with this DCS Update Patch
- Added ICLS Channel 5 to Carrier CV-74 Stennis

- Added/Changed CV-74 Stennis ATC Frequency to 115.5 AM

- Added Changed LHS-1 Tarawa ATC Frequency to 125.5Mhz AM

- Added the aforementioned frequency information to the in-game briefing.



UPDATE 07/21/2018:
- Added custom kneeboard page with frequencies/tacans



UPDATE 12/16/2018:


- Added "Zeus" spawning/destroying feature.
- Added "ALIVE" versions which act similarly to the multiplayer version of TTI.
- Added more objects to Stennis Carrier.
- Added Random Air Traffic for "ALIVE" versions.


UPDATE 12/16/2018 B:

- Added many more spawnable units to zeus spawnable list, including armor groups as well as allied bluefor units.
- Stennis Carrier will now shoot at enemy planes.
- Changed smoke colors. Smoke colors specified in briefing/readme.




UPDATE 12/17/2018: v1.10

- Added option in F10 Other Menu to request backup friendly AI CAP Reinforcements; F-15C, F-16A, F/A-18C (Takes off from carrier where applicable)





UPDATE 12/17/2018 - 2: v1.10a

- Fixed CV-Stennis ATC Frequency to be 225.50Mhz AMwhich was on another frequency that didn't work with the Hornet.


UPDATE 01/17/2019 - 1: v1.11

- Added 'configurable' mission settings for TTI SP. Check the readme file on editing mission settings for more details.




UPDATE 01/22/2019 - 1: v1.12

- Added waypoints to all missions except anti-ship for F/A-18C, AV-8B, A-10C and M-2000C. The intel reports will specify which waypoints to use to go to an active mission zone.



- Fixed "AI friendly A2A Backup" logic. They will now properly patrol and will also takeoff from the runway directly.



- Fixed the spawned in "ZEUS" aircraft to not just fly straight and/or RTB. They will now do CAP and orbit.


- Fixed the SA-2 unit group to be more active than to just be an extremely close range SAM site.


- Added an SA-11 battery to the unit pool of SAMs.


- Changed frequency presets in the F/A-18C. If you decide to add A2A wingmen to the hornet slots, they will speak to you on 305mhz AM


- JTAC Autolase script now tells you when units are destroyed and when new units are being lased.



- Adjusted tanker paths on TTI SP Caucasus map.


UPDATE 01/26/2019 - 1: v1.13


- Added a new "DEFINE MISSION SETTINGS" section where users can now adjust and change which units are spawned in the random spawning pool of A2A and A2G (AA Threats) missions.
This is especially useful if you want to prevent certain units from being spawned for A2G and A2A missions.


- Adjusted wind to account for variable carrier positions.


- Fixed an issue with mismatched airframe slots

UPDATE 01/28/2019 - 1: v1.14
- Added a new setting to configure where users can now adjust more A2A spawns (the ALL RANDOM set)
- Added a new setting for A2A random spawns where users set a minimum and maximum time to make the time in which a2a spawns occur much more dynamic, random and unpredictable than they already are.

- Added new settings that made TTI Standard vs TTI Alive redundant since now users can configure which missions are enabled for auto-spawned. If you want to revert to a TTI Standard setting where all missions are spawned manually, most of these auto-spawn settings should be set to "FALSE" as they are set to TRUE by default.
-These changes bring a fully custom experience to TTI, encouraging players to adjust the mission as their skills increase.


UPDATE 01/29/2019 - 1: v1.14a

- Fixed an issue where some A2G Hard Missions were not applying player defined settings for number of SAMS on A2G Hard Missions




__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Available missions:

Air to Air - Spawns a dynamically created enemy element flight. Choose between different difficulties. NOTE: These missions can infinitely stack. It is advised to spawn one at a time, and only spawn new A2A missions when one is complete.

  • HARD - SAMs may be present.
  • EASY (Multirole) - No SAMs will be present.
  • Helo - These missions will spawn closer to the home base.
  • Helo Infantry Assault - These missions are designed for dropping off troops and/or utilizing gunship helos.

Hi and great job ! I have a wish, If you could make a file pack with the map being Day, Cold Night, Stormy weather, Normal weather.

I hope this will make your mission file more attractive for new pilots in need of a awesome training ground.

It gets a bit hectic to manage, but it's easy enough to change those in the mission editor

Thank you very much for making this available so quickly. Really helpful for those of us with little to no skills in the ME.

@deadlyfishes fantastic work you put into this series of inferno missions.

How best to notify or request permission to use the mission in a closed co-op multiplayer (password normally given to regular viewers) whilst streaming?

That's fine with me, as long as you're not running it as a main 24/7 public server. We've got that covered Feel free to bring your stream to our server if you want to as well, it's well suited for intermediate to advanced pilots.

I mainly flew MP on the TTi maps but recently am discovering the fun of singleplayer again and making my own missions.


I remember quite a while ago there was a way to get AI wingmen to join you on flights but i have not been able to figure out how to do this. this it still possible to do this and if so, how?

Fantastic news, very much appreciated and I'd be happy to run a stream of gameplay from your dedicated server, I'm getting a few more viewers of late with the Persian Gulf and FA18 soon.
Thanks again @Deadlyfishes

Does this run well on 2.50 Stabile? My system specs are Win 10 I7 6700K @ 4.0 GHZ. 16 gig memory GTX 1070 SSD and I use the Rift CV-1. I fly the A10C and play single player only in the Caucus maps as well.
