DCS Zeus Mode !

Hi All,

 

Unless I am mistaken, I have never seen this suggested here.

 

But this could be a very nice addition to the Sim, It would allow to have more dynamic missions in multiplayer. It could tie in with Combined arms & the future dynamic campaign system.

 

For those not familiar with the Idea of the Zeus mode.

Zeus mode is a multiplayer game mode in Arma3, where one player is 'Zeus', the other players are either blue or red. the exact starting setup is up to the mission maker.

 

During the mission, Zeus can spawn in any units, delete them and give them order. Basically, he can edit the mission like in the mission editor on the fly, while the other players are playing it.

 

This allow the Zeus to create complex scenarios and add dynamism during mission, patentialy making mission realy life like.

 

I think this could be quite easily implemented in DCS, first with basic functionality & basic GUI (click on F10 map) (just spawn/despawn units & add waypoints) but later with more advanced functions and more intuitive GUI.

 

Even in its basic from I think it could add a lot to DCS in MP! And I think there is no major technical difficulties to make at least a basic version of this right now in DCS.

That would be a ton of fun! and using DCSs Engine right now would cause a lot of lag! I'm not a programmer, but this would probably take a lot of time to implement. Just from my own missions, I know that spawning a large force out of the blue without priming the ram with the unit models always causes interruptions.

Isn't there the entity of 'Game Master' in DCS that more or less does that?

 

 

Currently game master can control but not spawn stuff, except for on the

 

Havoc Server, on there we can spawn and control what we want (I wrote a Zeus module 6 months ago)

+1 for extending game master functionality

:set the AC group tasks

:alterting triggers real time

:spawn bandits for a group

:spawn tanker for a group

:change airbase neutrality

:edit warehouse stock

:set failures real time for a plane

 

These and similar addons can save a coop mission testing run.
