Since VBS2 Lite uses the same engine as ARMA1, is it possible to use ARMA1 addons in VBS2 Lite? If so how do I make them work. I've tried an F-18 fighter jet ARMA1 addon, and VBS2 doesn't seem to be able to recognize it. Any help would be great.

Bohemia Interactive Simulations and Bohemia Interactive Software are different companies and they are both really sensitive about this kind of stuff. The games' content are incompatible which other by design, and I don't think there are workarounds.

Sometimes I like to think as I started the whole "earplugs" thing.

I realized they are different companies, but it sounds like they were at one point a single company, and as such, I think both companies use the same engine in their software.
BI game engine 1 = VBS1 = OFP
BI game engine 2 = VBS2 = ArmA1
BI game engine 3 = VBS3 = ArmA2

Unless the engines in these games were intentionally modified to be incompatible with each other, for a given version of BI game engine, the addons for the BISim side should work the same on the BISoftware side.

I was just emphasizing they're different companies, because both companies also like to do the same. And you're correct, like I said:

There are probably some workarounds, you'd have to dig deep though.
