Forum Post: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=249290
Since i started to work on this kind of mission a long time ago, my main goal was to just create a training environment for me and my squadron, but i don't like to "know" fr om where to bad guys are going to come fr om... then i found MOOSE and started learning the code.
This is the result.
You are just NO ONE in an "ongoing confrontation" the tasks pops up over time, when your allied units detect a group of ground targets, then, you can check your radio menu, sel ect the HQ (STENNIS in this case), and sel ect the mission you want to complete. There are a lot of options to "control" what you do, you can even ask to "mark the target location" on the F10 map and not joining that task, there is no restrictions on how you want to fly this mission.
FOX Missile Trainer, has some "MOVING SAFE AREAS" around the carriers, when u are inside them, you're safe OFC, any incoming missile is going to be detonated at a safe distance, when you're outside those safe zones, and alert will pop up telling you fr om wh ere the missile it's coming and going to suggest you with the best notching course to evade that missile. (custom radio messages will play on each event: entering safe zone/ leaving safe zone / missile fired at you)
The "smart sam system" is just another MOOSE function, any SAM site in the operation area checks when you shot something at them, if is a SEAD missile, there is a chance that they'll shut their radars off and move a little to evade the incoming missile, making SEAD tasks more "harder".
ZEUS works just like the TTI one
to create a new spawn just place a map marker on the F10 MAP then type: -create nameofunit_color (Ie: -create fob1_red) then click on the red X of the map marker box
to delete units: place the map marker over the units you want to disappear and type: -destroy then click on the red X of the map marker box
The Jtac unit from the ZEUS script works with MOOSE Designation Script, if you spawn it over a mission area it'll lase the targets below prioritizing highest threats
When u don't need that jtac spawn anymore, just place a map marker anywhere and type -delete jtac then click on the red X of the map marker box.
I think i covered all the usable planes and helicopters, but if i forgot to add something, ask for it and i'll add it when possible.
Main features are:
✈ MOOSE mission using automatic and endless units generation.
✈ Dynamic task generation for BAI / SEAD / ANTI SHIP
✈ AI CAPs (Moose AI_A2A_Dispatcher)
✈ Smarter sams
✈ FOX missile trainer
✈ Custom version of ZEUS (the same one from TTI - TY deadly for letting me use it)
✈ CTDL script
I tried to make both versions the most "performance friendly" possible, it only spawns something if a previous group got totally wiped out.
Any suggestion would be appreciated, I've worked on this one for quite some time privately for my squadron and today i decided to make a public version...
Hope you guys have fun in it.-
EDIT: if u wanna add some MOD planes, just copy any client group and change the plane for the one you want, my script recognizes the "dingbat font" (the little plane in front of each client group name) to add it to the set of clients planes ready for tasking...

- Now ground threats are marked on F10 map with a simple map marker:
✔ Map Markers can be deleted manually
✔ Map Markers can be used by Jester to create new waypoints
- Removed air to ground dispatching module from the runtime, the strikes groups are still present, but i let 'em do what they want
- Reduced clouds density (more fps?? who knows...)
★ CHANGELOG VER 1.6b
- Data-link wasn't working - TY @Scotch from Moose discord for the good catch.

★ CHANGELOG VER 1.6c (Sry for 2 updates in a day... no more for at least a week)
- To avoid issues with DCS modules... added 3 Waypoints for all planes:
✔ WP1 = Bullseye
✔ WP2 = AO / Editable WPT (F16C TGP)
✔ WP3 = Landing / Home
★ CHANGELOG VER 1.7
- Added ability to mute radio chatter for A2G or A2A kills
- Added a moving safe zone radius of 1000 meters around the tanker, you are safe from missiles while taking fuel now
- Changed Tanker type to KC-135 so the new F-16C can AR -properly-
- Restored audio alerts when a missile is fired against you
- Removed hot starting units from Stennis deck (AWACS)
- Expanded the spawns strike templates from 4 to 11 for the sake of target diversity
- Expanded the SAM systems, added HAWK, SA11, SA10, Buk

- Overall, performance has increased a little - again -
★ CHANGELOG VER 1.7a
- ¿FIXED? a spawning error on the spawn scheduler function...
★ CHANGELOG VER 1.8
- Changed difficulty level of all units to excellent
- Changed loadouts of all enemy planes, almost all of 'em have BVR capability now
- Went back to Ciribob JTAC Autolase Script (i know... ppl doesn't like menus)
- Added my "fobs" templates to the list of possible targets spawn for BAI (Strike) tasking
- Added Game Master Units (x1) to both sides <-- need testing, i'm not a MP person, things tends to go FUBAR on multiplayer
- Added a new type of BAI tasking "HARD" this one combines a random selection of a big FOB template + a random selection of SAM groups, i wasn't able to complete this task in 1 sortie (playing SOLO)
- Changed the spawn method of air units, now instead of 3 caps of 2 units each, u have 6 caps of 1 unit each
- Fixed a ZEUS group not spawning (unnoticed 'till report of forum user @raven80, thanks buddy!)
- Added a few more locations for Naval units spawn
- Added menu options for "call support" CAS / SEAD / ANTI-SHIP, i don't recommend abuse of 'em thou, if a IA group finish a task in your place it will possible break that task status check, and u'll have to join an empty task and let the script "know" that there are no remaining units and change the status of that task to "Succeed"
★ CHANGELOG VER 1.9

- Updated @Nolove's scripts
- Added more Kneeboard pages

- Disbanded ALL flight groups (a pain the ass) now EVERY plane is a section leader (this 'should' solve the duplicated task / airboss msgs for everyone)
- Added Kuznetsov carrier + 6 more Su-33 on the deck
- Minor script changes to handle the new carrier

- Changed location of Awacs / tanker units to be outside the combat area (Still, AI can engage you if they are close)
- Rearranged the 150 spawn points to accordingly the new start location
★ CHANGELOG VER 2.0.3
- Changed BAI groups templates composition, only threat present now on those tasks are AAA (max), no more SAM's (thanks @solidGad for the feedback!!)

- Separated Helicopters CSAR tasks from Plane tasks (but helis can still subscribe to SEAD / BAI / Anti Ship Tasks)

★ CHANGELOG VER 2.0.4a

★ CHANGELOG VER 2.0.5
- Added beacon sounds for CTDL, i'm a machine to break this kind of things, beacons wasn't working without those sounds.

- Rolled back to the classic Ciribob Jtac Autolase Script (i lost the count on how many times i jumped between lasing systems...)
- A Jtac drone will now spawn in the area of each BAI / SEAD / BAI (hard) tasks, and despawn when the task success >event< triggers, so YEAH, to make everything work as intended you actually have to join tasks. Jtacs units will also use random smoke colors. (and thanks Topper for pointing me out my error on this one, my brain just shut down sometimes, was an easy one...)
- Removed task creation with menu commands 'till i find a method to despawn the jtac in those particular tasks, yup im still 1000000% noob~~
