All scripts, libraries and documentation needed to build a dynamic mission in DCS using the VEAF scripts

How to work on this package ?

See the demo mission TODO

What is this ? Is it like Moose ?

A bit like that, and not. It uses MiST (and a tiny teeny part of Moose, for air spawns) to handle lots of runtime functionality :

  • spawning of units and groups (and portable TACANs)
  • air-to-ground missions
  • air-to-air missions
  • transport missions
  • carrier operations (not Moose)
  • tanker move
  • weather and ATC
  • shelling a zone, lighting it up
  • managing assets (tankers, awacs, aircraft carriers) : getting info, state, respawning them if needed
  • managing named points (position, info, ATC)
  • managing a dynamic radio menu
  • managing remote calls to the mission through NIOD (RPC) and SLMOD (LUA sockets)
  • managing security (not allowing everyone to do every action)
  • define groups templates

And also lots of design-time functionality :

  • automatically populating FARPs and grass runways with all that is neeed
  • spawning things at the start of a mission (interpreter of data stored in a fake unit on the mission)
  • normalizing a mission file (removing useless key in the dictionary, sorting everything) so it's easy to compare versions
  • injecting radio presets globally (e.g. all blue F18 get a standard freq plan)
  • injecting real weather in a mission

And probably other things I forget ;)
