Random Encounters

Defend the motherland from the incoming hoards!

Random Encounters adds infinitely spawning waves of enemy fighters, bombers and attackers to VTOL VR.


-Compatible with MP
-Persistent Settings
-Aircraft that will spawn and carry out missions such as recon, ground attack, combat air patrol and carpet bombing
-Ground units that will move and attack each other with guns and rockets, and attack the aircraft with missiles

In the settings, you can change the maximum number of formations that can spawn, in case you get overwhelmed or if it's just too easy for you. You can also change how often the units spawn. The mod spawns formations of enemies loaded from enemyForces.json. By changing the .json file you can add new formations of aircraft to the roster. If you ever want to revert to the default aircraft, simply delete your enemyForces.json and it will be regenerated automatically by the mod.

Recognised Waypoint Names (for random encounter scenarios):

"bomb" - Bombers will perform carpet bombing runs on these waypoints.

"strike" - Strike aircraft formations will orbit around these waypoints looking for targets

"cap" - CAP formations will fly to these waypoints to look for aircraft to engage

"recon" - Recon aircraft and drones will orbit these waypoints and passively observe the battle

"a_gnd_spawn"/"e_gnd_spawn" - spawns for allied/enemy ground units, these will only spawn if there are also rendezvous points

"a_gnd_rdv"/"e_gnd_rdv" - rendezvous points for ground units, ground units will beeline from their spawn to these rendezvous points attacking anything in their path

If a map does not contain these waypoints they will simply target allied airbases and carriers.

Mission Types (for enemyForces.json):

Bombing = 1

Strike = 2

CAP = 3

Recon = 4
