-===== Introduction ===== +
-At the core of DELTA**FORCE** we especially value flying the **Co-Operations** (weekly custom co-op missions). \\ +
-On top of that running **custom community missions** as well as **trainings** within the schools is highly encouraged. \\ +

-A couple of steps are required to make it successful event. This guide will provide you with a framework for that. +

-<WRAP left round info 40%> +
-Note: If you fulfill only a specific role (for example hosting the mission), you can skip the parts not relevant to you. +

   - **PLAYTIME:** Aim for a total of 2 hours time on average including briefing and set up. \\ Flying should take most time of around 90 minutes to allow for full startups and closing out on full landings with shutdowns. \\ NOTE: Operations CAN fail. Avoid overextending the timeframe if objectives cannot be met as it will wear out pilots.   - **PLAYTIME:** Aim for a total of 2 hours time on average including briefing and set up. \\ Flying should take most time of around 90 minutes to allow for full startups and closing out on full landings with shutdowns. \\ NOTE: Operations CAN fail.

-===== Tracking attendance ===== 
- 
-At DELTA**FORCE** we value activity. Attendance for that will be tracked during two stages: 
- 
- 
-DELTA**FORCE** Co-Operations (official weekend missions) 
- 
-**During Briefing** \\ 
-''2 points (signed up) > if the sign up form was used\\ 
-1 point (no-show) > if the person signed up but didn't show up, or 1 point if the shows up when not signed up'' 
- 
-**During Debriefing** \\ 
-''3 points (took part) > for everyone who flew the op \\   
-4 points (completed) > if players flew the op and stayed til the debrief 4 points will be used'' 
- 
- 
-**Trainings and misc. missions** \\ 
-for missions by e.g. school leads, trainings and custom community missions 
- 
-''training show        1 Point \\ 
-midweek mission    1 Point'' 
  
  
-Points are __NOT__ additiveAs in signing up and showing up (2 ptswill not be added up with flying and debrief (4 pts).\\  Example: If a player completed an official weekend mission which s/he signed up for 4 pts will be given.+===== Mission Essential Tasks (MET) =====

It shines at creating procedural player centric single missions. For example anti insurgency strike missions suited for helicopter operations. 
 +  * Campaign: \\ [[https://github.com/dcs-liberation/dcs_liberation|DCS Liberation]] is a turn based single-player or co-op dynamic campaign, which allows to fly multiple sorties towards a campaign goal. It is an external program that generates full and complex DCS missions and manage a persistent combat environment.
