IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Friday June 14 Mission
« on: June 13, 2019, 12:09:23 pm »
Hi Guys,

I'm going out on Friday evening so I am starting the campaign mission at 4:30 pm PS/7:30 pm EST.  I have made changes to the server software and I want to make sure it starts as it should.

Set the end time at 8:30/11:30 so for those that fly later it will still be there.

What about Sunday, are we running a mission on father's day?

I have added the Me262 to the expert server.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Sunday Evening BoX Campaign
« on: April 27, 2019, 10:23:09 am »
I was asked last night to run the BoX Campaign on Sunday, what time would you like it to start? 

I just checked the next mission time and it will start at 08:00.

I have also upped the number of ferry flights.  The AI in Coconuts world depend on the availability of AC at each airfield.  Added ferry flights should help to get more AI to the airfields and thus in the air (I hope).

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / April 25, Game Update

Don't see anything on the Forum but there is a game update available - am updating the servers now.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Server Overload
« on: April 12, 2019, 08:56:28 pm »
Looks like the server is having problems with this campaign. I'll reset it with the Stalingrad map and try it.  It is one of the maps I pared down and should run better. I'll put the same campaign on the expert server to give me an idea as to how it runs.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Next Campaign
« on: March 08, 2019, 01:04:28 pm »
Hi Guys,

Back home in the frozen North,  I thought it was chilly in Southern California this year but it's much worse here.

So as we start thinking about the next campaign the first thing we need to put together is the plane set.  Once we have a possible plane set I can put it on the Expert server and we can start testing it.

There are not a lot of ways to limit how many of each AC are available but I think we can make certain models premium or "best plane" as Coconut calls them.  This might limit how many of the best AC are around.

In the mean time I have upgraded the campaign software to the latest version, it was last changed mid February so it looks as if the revisions on it are slowing down.  There may be one soon to fix any changes in the latest BoX patch.  I have also updated the stats software so that should be back online.

You can see who is on the servers here:

So if we can have some suggestions I can make a start on making t he file and getting it on the server.

Hi Rel,

I'm away this weekend so could please step in case anything goes haywire?

I have set the server to switch off the Expert/Normal servers and start the Campaign.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Normal/Expert Server Missions
« on: September 13, 2018, 01:18:19 pm »
At present we run a single mission on the Expert Server and a Campaign on the Normal Server.  I will be adding all the aircraft types to mission.  Would it be better to switch the mission to the Normal Server and have the Campaign on the Expert server or leave it like it is?

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Server Upgrade/Campaign Reset
« on: September 13, 2018, 01:13:49 pm »
Hi Guys,

Coconut has come out with a major change to his software, he constantly seems to be tweaking things to fix problems and add features.

Unfortunately the new version is not compatible with our campaign so if I install it the Campaign will have to be reset.  As we are only one mission into the Campaign I don't think that is too bad but on the other hand I don't like resetting our Campaign every time Coconut changes something.  There are a number of new settings but maybe something more important is that he "Fixed bug with night time computation".

Here are the new settings:

    # Whether players can spend cash reserve to borrow planes they haven't reserved
    PlaneRentalAllowed: true
    # Cost factor for buying planes from the rear airfield
    RearAirfieldCostFactor: 0.125
    # Max amount of cash a player can hold
    MaxCash: 10000
    # Initial amount of cash for each player
    InitialCash: 5000
    # Max number of reserved planes of a type at an airfield
    MaxReservedPlanes: 2
    # Max total number of reserved Planes
    MaxTotalReservedPlanes: 6
    # Part of plane rental money returned
    MoneyBackFactor : 0.75
    # Control whether player-driven tank spawns should be included in battles
    EnablePlayerTanks: true

I would set it up to not allow AC rentals and to set the RearAirfieldCost Factor to zero so that AC at the rear bases are still free.

I like the limits on the number of reserved AC as this stops people from hogging all the good ones.

When I make this type of change it effects all the servers.

My intention would be to reset the campaign before tomorrow evening unless there is much opposition.

IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Server Controller Update
« on: August 30, 2018, 10:20:45 am »
Aug 30 I have upgraded the server controller and campaign to the latest version.  The old campaigns could not be restarted so once again they have been reset.  If this version seems stable on Tuesday we will do a test of our campaign.

This shows me that it is unlikely we will do any upgrades once a campaign has started.
