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 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
  • 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?
Several variations of the mission is included:
ALIVE VERSION:
  • All missions will start automatically. --Just like playing on the multiplayer server!
  • Enemy A2A AI will spawn automatically, but can still be spawned manually if you'd like using the F10 - Other radio menu
  • Random SAM sites will generate in a random unknown location every 30+ minutes.
  • Random air traffic is active. You will see friendly civillian non-combat planes randomly flying their own routes.
STANDARD VERSION:
  • All missions must be triggered MANUALLY via the F10 Other - Radio Menu. -No random air traffic.
Both versions include a "Non-smoked targets" variation where the JTAC will not smoke designated targets.


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:

Spoiler:

a2a_respawn_time = TIME IN SECONDS BETWEEN EACH AUTOMATIC A2A SPAWN (TTI ALIVE ONLY)
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

Regarding hosting this mission as a multiplayer server;

This mission is originally designed and intended for SINGLEPLAYER use only. There will be many issues and bugs that arise when you set this mission up in a multiplayer setting. However, I do see the viability of this mission being used in a small private co-op setting, which does require you to host the mission online in some way.

I kindly ask that you keep it private either by password protecting or hiding it from the public server list when you host this mission. I also ask that you let me know if you wish to do so.
I'm interested in hosting this mission on a password-protected co-op server. I'd like to make some small edits to the mission for this - specifically increasing the unit count for friendly player aircraft from one to two or more so that co-op players can fly the same aircraft if they'd like.

I'd tried this out with the mission editor, but there is something strange going on with the coalitions and the aircraft they have availble. For instance, if I try to increase the [CAP] MiG-29A group from one unit to two, the unit type is not MiG-29A but instead, F-15C. I presume this may be due to the fact that my mission editor won't allow the USA to operate the MiG-29A. Are you using a mission editor mod that removes this restriction or something like that?

Edit: I've modified my C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DCSWorld\Scripts\Database\db_countries.lua to resolve the issue:

Code:
local units = country:get("USA").Units 
<snippy>
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Mirage 2000-5");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-27");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-33");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "MiG-29A");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "MiG-29S");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-25");
    cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-25T");

The Predator JTAC that spawns over the mountains west of Vegas for the A2G Easy Mission is at too low of an altitude, and eventually will get stuck in the mountains. I changed the Predator altitude from around 7k feet to 13k feet, which seems to resolve the problem and targets are lased as expected.

Sorry for the late reply. Been busy with the holidays.

Yes, you need to mod the countries database file. If you want, you can add planes to UKR so they can speak russian.

Also, I've updated to 1.03 to fix the drone that crashes.

Very dynamic and immersive mission.
using it in MP session
Just a remark/ question : is it possible to avoid air/ground strike against pilots starting from parkings (i.e. after a destruction) ?
Not easy to starting/ taxiing/ under ennemy fire

Thanks

A big update that fixes some bugs, improves performance, and adds new airframes is live and has been uploaded to the ED User Files Page. (Find the link at the top post).

Please let me know if there are any issues, bugs or anything you'd like to see in a future update.

Thanks and enjoy!

Pushed out another update that has the auto JTACs designating priority targets! They will now target SAMs first, AAA, then anything else that is remaining that is not considered top priority (fuel trucks, unarmed) will be chosen last.

Enjoy!

Looking forward to give this a go in coop. It states 'single player only' at the top,...is this mission for multiplayer also or only the one you host yourself? And if it works in mulitplayer, could you add a second slot for all aircraft that are present only once like the SU-25T etc?
