Dynamic ArmA Airports (DAA)
DAA was created FOR ArmA users seeking autonomous, yet predictable fixed-wing aircraft behavior.
DAA can be played as-is (plug-and-play templates included in download), or utilized by mission builders to embellish / support their own missions.
a. Facilitates predictable, automatic, continuous, autonomous fixed-wing aircraft spawn, ground service, startup, taxi, take-off, flight route, approach, landing, taxi, shutdown.
b. Airfield side (West, East, Guer, Civilian) is determined in the editor, prior to game play.
c. If multiple airfields exist, and have applicable taxi-in point, civilian, commercial, and cargo aircraft will randomly select their destination airfield based upon availability.
d. If more than one side (West, East, Guer) exist, military aircraft will seek-out ground vehicles and send targeting information to other DAA controlled units of the same side.
e. AI aircraft can be held at their spawn point, for loading of players or cargo; however, with the current version, route and destination are decided by AI, AI aircraft automatically delete after 60 seconds following shutdown.
Additional side features include:
a. Respawn of empty "air","LandVehicle","ship" types utilized by players
b. Respawn of autonomous AI military (West, East, Guer) controlled "air","LandVehicle","ship" types.
c. Shared targeting information.

Intended for use in single player, multiplayer, and standalone server... not tested in headless client (HC)... but likely a perfect fit for HC. Can potentially be utilized on any map, any airport, any land able surface (including grass fields, roads, aircraft carriers, etc.) DAA does not support water landings.
No additional addons are required for this add-on; however, additional aircraft add-ons required to run example missions (see details below)
