Welcome to Altis!

This "mission" has been worked on since Altis came out.

This is my first real "scripting" attempt in Arma, though I have other programming experience.

In this mission, you (and max. 31 of your friends (16 BLUFOR, 16 OPFOR)) spawn at the main airport on Altis.
You can then spawn ANY vehicle currently in the game. This includes boats, cars, trucks, plane(s), tanks, helicopters, yeah, literally everything.

Any vehicle you spawn spawns 10 meters directly infront of you, with it's front side facing the same direction as you are looking. Watch out when looking at another vehicle or sloped terrain. It might spawn inside of the obstacle and explode.

  • Spawn ANY vehicle in the game! (Includes mods/custom vehicles.)
  • Spawn in objects ANY object! (new in v5v6)
  • Change your loadout anywhere, any time! (Using VAS[www.armaholic.com])
  • Spawn in AI anywhere on the map with a single click! (Rifle squad, AA unit, AT unit, Ifrit HMG (Machine gun mounted armored car), T-100 Varsuk (Tank), ZBU-39 Tigris (AA))
  • Teleport anywhere on the map with a single click!
  • Change ambient settings on the fly! (Time of day, overcast & fog)
  • Damage, repair, rearm and teleport any vehicle you enter!
  • High FPS maintaining! (Any vehicle that gets spawned in, when it blows up, it's burning wreck (an absolute FPS killer) gets deleted within 30 seconds. Any vehicle that has been unoccupied for at least 2 minutes, will be automatically deleted.) (Also, no guarantees when you spawn in a LOT of AI...)
  • Ammo box at spawn area with every single weapon/gear and clothing items in it. Save/load outfits. (Thanks to the VAS[www.armaholic.com] system!)
  • SUPPORT FOR ACRE! If ACRE is enabled on the server, all the ACRE radios will be added into the inventory of the ammo boxes at the spawn.

I have put quite a few hours into scripting this. If you like this mission, buy me a beer[www.paypal.com]!

-- NOTES --

Overcast setting: Because the game does overcast "easing", as in, you select 100% overcast, and in 1 hour, it'll build up, you need to skip the time by at least 1 hour in order for the overcast to "change" into what you selected. To do this, go into the Ambient Menu -> Time -> Skip 1 h

Time setting: Because of the way that Arma handles time of day across client/server, you might have to select one of the specific times when a friend joins. Because it might be 1 AM for you, but 12 PM for the player who joins. Still trying to find a fix for this.

Object spawning/picking up: Because of some problem with Arma 3, which makes some action menus show up like 1 minute after they've been added dynamically, you may need to wait a minute before "Pick Up" or "Duplicate" shows up on objects.

Have fun!

P.S. - Feel free to use the scripts in this for your own scenario, as long as you link back to this item on the Steam Workshop ;) Also, if you want to use the VAS/TAW scripts, use the links above instead. That guarantees you have the newest version, and doesn't make me a distributer.

Since Zeus is now out, I suggest you guys simply download a Zeus mission, or run the inbuilt ones. It can do just as much, and more. I don't see much sense in continuing development on this ;)
Thanks for downloading, playing and rating this. It was fun making it for you guys, and I hope you all enjoyed it.

The code of this mission is hereby free to be used in any mission of your own, without requesting permission. You can Google how to find the mission its ".pbo" file, and how to extract it. Credits in your published mission are appreciated, but I won't require you to do that.

Can you add to the spawning, and make it that you can spawn casual friendly NPC's, like not with guns and stuff and also would be good if you could change their clothes, thanks.
Would be apprieciated :)

pls fix this, the spawn objects is broken after the game update

Unfortunately, the "Spawn Objects" does not work as it should after the update (not all objects in list, some don't spawn).
