Title: Enemy aircraft identification
Post by: AKA_Goshawk on July 21, 2019, 06:17:54 pm
Gents:
Per a request from Wayno, let's get it in writing regarding what color to use for friendly aircraft.

From the Main Menu, select Settings.
From Settings menu select Flight Interface
From Flight Interface menu, select RED USSR

Thank you.

Unless the bug has been fixed, that will just confuse things.  For some reason, if you pick USSR is always RED, when you look at the full screen map the friendly airfields show up as red, but the friendly ground units and production/storage areas show up as blue, and visa versa for the German side.

If the bug has not been fixed, I recommend you pick one of the others (e.g. friendly is always BLUE).

OK, the latest.
At this time, we are waiting for the decision regarding the color codes to use. Please disregard my previous post(s)
Taipan will send a message to all and also post a decision on this forum regarding which setting to use in the game to avoid confusion during the mission.
Thanks to all.

Salute Gents,
We will select BLUE as friendly in the setup menu when flying either side to overcome the misidentification of ground targets due to the glitch.
The terms "Bogie" "Bandit" or "Friendly" will be used as per our Ops manual when making air contact calls. Please do not refer to any contact as a colour. i.e Blue or Red.
Those found guilty of using colours to make air contact calls will be reported to the Ops O and brought before the Lord High Prosecutor!


That is all Gents!

Cheers

Tai
