LITE mission package v1.6
LITE mission package!
I am happy to announce version 1.6 fo the LITE mission package. This version sees five new missions added, and all known bugs fixed, including the incompability errors with Arma2 and Arma2Free. The mission statement remains the same. LITE missions are tactically challenging, and very varied, scenarios in snippets that take between 15 to 30 minutes to play. The missions are suitable for four to six players, with some variations. Have a glorious summer, and enjoy the missions in the cool evenings.

Not every session of Arma2 needs to involve 'attack the island' or 'defeat the red hordes' type scenarios. Sometimes you just want to sit around with your regular gang and play some quick missions that still require some tactical planning and communication. Heavily inspired by the original scenarios built for Operation Flashpoint-- the LITE missions concept was born.
The key features of the LITE mission package are their small size, varied gameplay and high replayability. As their names suggest LITE missions are lightweight and are unwilling to sacrifice gameplay for realism of the Sit-and-wait variety.
>> LITE missions are optimized for four players, but can usually accommodate more.
>> LITE missions have a 15-30 minute playtime.
>> LITE missions require some planning and tactical forethought.
>> LITE missions are highly replayable due to random insertions, extraction zones, and enemy patrols

Ah fantastic. I've been looking for these type of missions right now as I'm trying to get some friends more involved with ArmA, we are all restricted on time and they get annoyed with all the waiting about and 10 min drives/walks to target. These will go well on our little private server I'm putting together.
Sound good are they ACE compatible?.
That is exactly the envisioned purpose of these missions. As much as I enjoy epic milsim scenarios or semi-persistant gameplay-- sometimes I just want to GET ON WITH IT and have a tactical yet challenging 20 minutes worth of gaming that I can somehow fit into a busy real life.
That doesn't mean these missions are easy; planning, communication, and teamwork are all needed. With briefing and all-- expect around 15-30 minutes per mission.
Certainly! Though no ACE specific features are utilized each of these missions have been played through with ACE. On an advisory note the tougher AI means a more careful playing style should be adopted-- thus extending the expected gametime.
Massive thanks for hosting (and frontpaging) the mission package.

thanks that's great I will (once I get me server bloody working hehe) install these.
Enjoying these so far. On playing through the arty battery one though, the map tells you to go one place but the waypoint seems to be at the bottom-left corner of the map. No big thing... just takes FOREVER to get there in a CRRC. Well, it would've taken forever, if the hind hadn't killed me haha. Good stuff tho!
*laugh* glad you liked it. Good find on the marker and its quite safe to ignore!-- leftover debug information *blush*

Hi played a few of these last night and there great.
I played them on me just set up dedi server but I run ACE2.
There was one thing I spotted not sure if its missions or my end but the AI really cant seem to hit any thing there aim is terrible.
Did you dumb the AI down to make for longer fire fights?.
