Virtual TrainingSpace 4.0 - OA

Gonza & L'etranger

VTS was originally created by (Grimm (Elgarion) and the Centurion team).
Thanks for this wonderful concept.

VTS is a mission sandbox.
One of players connected choose to be the Game Master when the mission start.
VTS allow the Game master to create multiplayers cooperatives missions in real time (players connected). with a lot of short cuts to make it quickly.
You don't need to know anything in scripting or mission editing, it's really easy to use, you can spawn everything on the map just in 2 clicks.
You can play in MP or SP (very good to test new islands, vehicles or to use Arma in Role play with friends).

- Compatible Arrowhead only or Arma 2 Combined operation
- Full ACE II support (but it work if ACE is not installed)
- Support Players versus Players operations
- Norrin revive script
- All side are now playable (West,East,Guer,Civ)
- mission parameters
- Moveable respawn/Startpoint for each side
- Possibility to take control of all units (just by a click on map) (like in matrix !!)
- Possibility to join any units between them (just by 2 clicks on map (Source and target))
- Game master can delete any units (just by a click on map (50 M or 500 M radius))
- Game master can start music from a list
- Game master can change Game colours (stalker ambiance)
- reassign order to any unit on map
- order units or groups to get in a vehicle (just in 2 click)
- Camera 3d for the Game Master
- Teleport any groups or vehicle
- 3D teleport (objects,players,vehicles...anythings)

Place the pbo(s) file(s) in your ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead\MPMissions folder.

You can find more info about this mission Game master on the Virtual TrainingSpace 3.5 - ACE for ArmA 2.

Port to other maps:
New methode:
The mission .pbo shoud be compatible with all islands (renaming the .pbo with the island extension, should allow you to do so without the need to edit the mission).

Old methode:
You must take the utes or queshkibrul version of VTS to do it!
In this sample i'm porting utes version to chernarus
1-Unpack Mission
2-Change the directory name ->
3-Edit mission.sqm and change all "utes" -> "Chernarus"
4-Start the mission in the editor ARMA2 and :move the aircraft carrier, its objects and markersmove the marker "center" to? center the mapmove markers Boothill, respawn_west, preview ... on an isolated island
6-Save it and that's all

Island supported:
The mission .pbo shoud be compatible with all islands (renaming the .pbo with the island extension, should allow you to do so without the need to edit the mission).
