UPDATE 09/06/21 – 1: v1.83m
All Maps:
+ Further improved custom user-created “Zeus” spawnable units, making it easier to create as many custom groups of all unit types as desired with easy to remember commands. Additionally, these custom units can be ‘transferred’ over to newer TTI missions or other TTI Maps. The included tutorial file goes in-depth on how to create and spawn these units.

Mariana Islands:
~ Fixed an issue where random air traffic spawns were not working.

UPDATE 08/23/21 – 1: v1.83k
+ Added many new custom display options for EWRS to allow players to show more or less information as desired for EWRS text box reports:
– Change number of max enemy threats displayed on reports
– Turn extra header text on/off
– Turn bandit’s speed/heading info on/off
– Change time interval between automatic reports.
– Added presets for ease of use; Default, Reduced, Minimal
Default: x4 bandits displayed, full bandit info, extra header text and threat level text on
Reduced: x3 bandits displayed, full bandit info, extra header texts off
Minimal: x2 bandits displayed, full bandit info, extra header text off

+ Added ability to edit enemy convoy unit composition in mission editor.

+ Added ability to edit custom “Zeus” spawnable ground groups in the mission editor.

UPDATE 07/17/21 – 1: v1.83f
– Fixed an issue where LSO/Marshall/Airboss SFX for the Airboss script were not playing
– Fixed an issue where some random SAM generation zones were not spawning correctly and/or designated properly by its JTAC (if JTAC at SAM sites are enabled)
– Added CVN-7X Relay helicopter on carrier maps.

 UPDATE 07/12/21 – 1: v1.83f

– Fixed an issue with CSAR forced rescue events were not spawning correctly.

– Fixed an issue where CSAR beacon/ADF was not working properly.


HOTFIX 04/26/21 – 1: v1.82b
– Fixed an issue were Zeus commands were not working properly in Caucasus.
– Adjusted SA-2 layout
– Adjusted enemy ground unit AI difficulty to ensure they do not remain dormant at times.

UPDATE 04/25/21 – 1: v1.82a

– First update since the release to DCS 2.7 Open Beta; Previous version of DCS Open Beta may be incompatible with this mission version.

– Fixed an issue where A2A AI spawned units via Zeus map marker command would descend to 3.7k feet immediately after spawning if they do not acquire a target right away.

– Fixed an issue where A2A AI spawned units via Zeus did not easily acquire a target.

– Added two missing tactical SAM (singleton vehicles) units to the regular and Zeus spawn lists; SA-13 and SA-19. They are omitted from the ground mission spawning pool by default, so un-comment them in their proper lists as desired.

– Added a weather preset and changed the time to ~18:00.


UPDATE 03/06/21 – 1: v1.80c

– Fixed an issue where using “-create jtac” was not working

– Added the “Zeus” spawnable unit list to the BRIEFING for better access (pause, show briefing or press LAlt+B to bring up the briefing)


UPDATE 02/21/21 – 1: v1.80b
– Changed how A2A enemy spawning works. Instead of using a random position within a single large zone which sometimes results in bandits spawning on top of you, there are now 10 random A2A enemy spawn starting position zones which you can move around to change generally where bandits may come from. It chooses one of these A2A enemy spawn zones at random each time an A2A enemy group is initiated.

– Added missing SA-15 Tor unit to spawning pool, database and zeus script. Unit list was also updated.

– Moved SFX files to their own directory instead of using the trigger list implementation, which saves nearly 1MB of filesize.

UPDATE 02/07/21 – 1: v1.80a
– Overhaul on all ground and air spawnable units at A2A and A2G Missions as well as “Zeus” spawnable units:
    – ALL DCS Aircraft and Ground Units are available to add/remove at all mission types.
    – ALL DCS Aircraft and Ground Units are available to spawn via “Zeus” spawning in real-time using map markers.
    – Free WW2 assets were also added to now allow for players to adjust the spawning pools to be more geared towards WW2 engagements.
  
A2A Missions are now more based on aircraft types rather than their group size/skill level. The default setup would be that easy aircraft will be less formidable types; L-39, C-101, etc, where hard aircraft will consist of Su-30, F-15C, etc. These templates can be adjusted to what the player is more comfortable with.

Expanding the unit pools and database within the mission to ALL DCS units will give players the ability to make any combination of enemy forces; Change the spawning pools to only spawn “Eastern” faction units or “Western” faction units for realistic engagements. The current setup is a mix between both “RED” and “BLUE” faction enemy units.


– Added an aircraft skill setting for both RED and BLUE AI aircraft.
 

– Allowed for changing out enemy unit spawning pools for all A2G mission types; A2G Easy, Hard, Helo, Infantry Assault, Anti-ship.


– Moved all “template” units to scripting for much more modularity and ease of mission maintenance/updates when new maps, modules units are released.


– Fixed an issue where editing the playable client slots would sometimes cause a crash/black screen on mission start.


– Fixed and polished countries and coalitions so that client aircraft and friendly coalition units have more customization potential.


– All client aircraft are set to their country of origin (ex. the Su-27 is set to Russia and the J-11A is set to China, etc…).


– Client aircraft slots further polished fixing many typos and naming formats.


– Added CSAR (search and rescue) script for all helicopters. A new CSAR menu was added, which also includes an option to FORCE a rescue mission on command. Simply fly to the downed pilot (Friendly infantry unit named “Wounded Pilot” on map) and hover over to pick them up. Bring them back to an airfield, FARP or ship to complete the rescue.
Additionally; Friendly player and AI that eject will spawn a new rescuable pilot where the ejection took place.


– Added an option that will limit the amount of aircraft spawned in via the F-10 – Other A2A spawning menu to prevent unlimited spamming of A2A missions. By default this option is set to allow for unlimited A2A mission stacking.


– Added an option for enabling/disabling the friendly carrier groups from attacking enemy aircraft.


– Renamed the Random Air Traffic (RAT) units in the editor to more generic names like “Large 1” or “Fighter 1” so that players can change out the type of aircraft the random air traffic will be in the editor. You can also edit their loadouts if applicable.


– Various base code improvements that allow for better performance overall.



UPDATE 12/05/2020 – 1: v1.72d

– Added F-14A Module
– Updated MOOSE for F-14A Airboss Compatibility

– Changed WPT name labels to match the zones they belong for easier customization/editing.

UPDATE 10/28/2020 – 1: v1.72b

– Added dynamic convoy missions;

*Convoys can be configured to auto-start or spawned via the mission spawner menu

*They will be randomly generated, the unit composition of the convoy will be varied

*Their starting positions and routes will be randomly selected

*They can be repeated like normal A2G Missions

*Using the F10 – Other Intel report will provide a L/L of the convoy’s position at the time of the intel being requested.

*Configurable option to allow for adding map markers on the F10 Map to show the convoy’s position (The convoy map marker will update when intel is requested)

– Fixed an issue for carrier maps where using CVN-75 caused datalink issues. All carrier maps will now use CVN-72 instead.

UPDATE 09/30/2020 – 1: v1.71a

– Added A-10C II module

– Added C-101CC module

– Added MiG-29G module

UPDATE 08/27/2020 – 1: v1.68d

– Fixed an issue where spawning “hmv” via Zeus map marker command wasn’t working

– New logic in A2G Mission spawning will now prevent the same mission from re-spawning after being completed. A different mission will be randomly selected.

– Ground mission vehicles will now spawn with a random heading/azimuth.

UPDATE 08/08/2020 – 1: v1.68a

– Updated ALL ground mission zones to use “zone polygons” which are essentially HAND-DRAWN boundaries within towns, cities, landmarks that still spawn units in a random position within the zone, but in a more realistic position to add a bit more immersion.

If you still like the “blob” of units in a circle formation in an open feel, there is a quick guide on how to get that spawning method back.

This WILL make missions a bit more challenging due to the fact that units easily blend in with buildings, trees and other structures a bit more. Feel free to re-draw the zones or move them as you’d like.

UPDATE 07/15/2020 – 1: v1.67a

!! – THIS UPDATE IS REQUIRED IF YOU WANT TO PLAY TTI SP on DCS Open Beta Version 2.5.6.52196 – !! – USE VERSION 1.66e if you are on a previous version of DCS Open Beta.

Improved A2A Intercept Bomber Mission logic:

– Bomber escort fighters will now properly spawn near bomber and follow them

– An air raid siren sound and notification will let the player know when the bombers begin their attack.

– Added new JTAC Auto Lase Logic to now include ELEVATION IN FT of the marked target:

unknown.png

Big thanks to SanekFl for helping me find the scripting logic to implement this. SanekFl said: I looked into script and added target elevation info. Please review pull request

https://github.com/ciribob/DCS-JTACAutoLaze/pull/3

– Added a new map marker command “-delete jtac” that will remove the last zeus-spawned jtac. A new message appears when creating a zeus jtac to remind you of this new command and feature.

UPDATE 08/17/19 – 1: v1.54a

-Fixed a major issue with map-marker zeus spawns not working correctly after the latest OB update from 8/14/17 https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php…1&postcount=66

This latest version of TTI is REQUIRED if you wish to get map=marker zeus spawns to work properly again.

– Changed logic for JTAC units to optimize performance. JTAC units are now generated dynamically with mission zones and will be removed once the mission is complete.

Additionally, this means you can move mission zones around in the mission if you’d like, but the mission intel will be incorrect. You can use the JTAC Status as a work-around to get the coordinates of the designated targets if you aren’t relying on the F10 Map.

– Added a new JTAC zeus spawn that you can create anywhere on the map to spawn a JTAC recon drone to auto-lase/designate and smoke targets. The code for these JTAC drones created by zeus map marker spawning is always 1685 for now. I do have future plans to edit this on the fly. You can make as many of these as you’d like.

zeus-jtac-drone-tutorial.gif

NOTE: For TTI Normandy WW2 , you must use “recon” instead of “jtac” to spawn the auto-lase/designating sentry unit.

UPDATE 07/03/2019 – 1: v1.53c HOTFIX

Fixed a script error that prevented the trigger list lua file (main script file) from loading due to an error with CTLD file still in this version. This would occur when you set SlingLoading to false.

UPDATE 06/25/2019 – 1: v1.53a

– JTAC Autolase Target Reports are reformatted for easier reading and now provide Lat/Long SECONDS (DMS). Perfect for JDAMs, JSOWs and navigation systems that cannot use lat/long decimal format.

New%20JTAC%20Reports.PNG

– There is now a new option for HELO SLINGLOADING to be enabled or disabled.

Enabled = uses real rope/sling on helos that have the sling feature. If there is no sling for the helo, then you cannot sling load with it.

Disabled = hover over the crate to carry it. Any helo can use this feature.

New%20HELO%20Slingloading%20Option.PNG

– Missions will now have unique procedural generated operation names, giving these missions a bit more character. This is more useful on our multiplayer servers, but we may do more with this in the near future.

New%20Mission%20Names.PNG

UPDATE 06/01/2019 – 1: v1.52b

– Fixed an error where some blue units were not spawnable via the ‘zeus spawns’

– Changed the A2A Intercept mission to spawn 3 bombers that will be somewhat grouped up. They have 3 possible spawn locations on the map that will be chosen at random each time they are triggered.

– Added new bombers to the spawnable units list:

b1b_blue

b52_blue

f11a_blue

tu142_red

tu160_red

tu22m3_red

tu95ms_red

UPDATE 05/29/2019 – 1: v1.52a

– Added ability to STACK ZEUS-Spawned units:

zeus_stack_units_tutorial.gif

– Added MANY more units that can be spawnable via “zeus” map marker spawns. List is on the main post, included as a text file in the zip along with the in-game briefing.

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: v1.33a – 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 03/02/2019 – 1: v1.33

Added MiG-19P

– “Refreshed” units that affect the new F/A-18C Data Link Update

– Fixed incorrect frequency listing in the custom kneeboard.

UPDATE 02/12/2019 – 1: v1.32

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. ​
