DCS Series Flight Sims / Re: A-4E-C Skyhawk update

Just ran a check on the DCS compatibility issue. WTF is that Integrity Checker for Anyway????

I left it unchecked and had the F4E-C added on my installs in DCS, had the same A/C loaded in a mission I tried to host.

AKA_TG tried to join without the A4E-C enabled and he could not get in.

As the host I STILL got a message saying the A4E-C was required to connect?????

Again WTF is the purpose of even having that Integrity Checker.

Thanks for passing the info on the A4E-C update and the recent fixes. I'm still keeping an eye on this MOD as some of the guys I fly with don't really want to spend a ton of money on DCS just to see if they like it. However they do like of the camaraderie of flying with friends, so having this aircraft as a freebie is a nice addition to this sim IMHO.

As for Topguns question. I think when you setup a multiplayer server in DCS. The HOST has a choice to put some hard rules in under that Integrity Button before you start up the server. What do you have yours setup as?

Welcome Back Scorp,

My 2 cents on the plane sets are this. Not everyone has all the BoX versions. So when you stick a map up such as Kuban with only the Kuban a/c it's going to cause problems. We need to have a way add the older planesets. Since I am more accustomed to the German side, may I suggest that If your going to put in a G version of the 109, you still need to keep the F varients. With the 110's some guys have only the E2, while others have the G2 version.

Since this is going to a practice campaign with most guys flying on the same side, I would think we would want to make sure that everyone can get up in an aircraft on either side.

 Disregard my last regarding planning based on the current campaign Dynamics are going to go kaput most likely when the map gets reset due to these new updates.

WTF is wrong with these game developers at IL2 Sturmovik.

They release a 850mb game update (ver. 3.011) yesterday on 3/5/19 and now the very next day 3/6/19 they release a 2nd game update 151mb (ver. 3.011b).

Again not good game developer strategy from a business point of view.

Gos, Scorp and Rel ...... time to update the AKA server's ....... Again!

New BoS Update 3.011 came out today 3/5/19

Servers will need to be updated.

After you left Gos, myself, Wolf, and Rage continued to piddle around and scouted out the map looking for potential target sites. We found quite a bit.So we could put together a few alternate strike missions to do after an strike on an enemy airfield.

As for leading an Axis mission occasionally Yes, I can volunteer to try it. I think as you mentioned earlier we need to have other guys in the squad step up and lead missions too. I'm not looking forward to making this a full time task.

I also agree with the observations Wiley made. It will be very hard to pre-plan or develop any type of a mission on Coconuts Dynamic Server as each sides objectives and targets need time to develop as both sides aircraft fly around and discover the various targets of opportunity. IE .... moving convoys, tanks, factories, supply storage facilities, dugout etc.

With that being said, about the only thing you MIGHT be able to pre-plan a mission for is a large scale attack on an enemy airfield.

The other concern is regarding the availabilty of all the aircraft that would be needed to make such a strike at our front line bases. Remember we are using the AKA Expert Dynamic Campaign server and I think Scorp has it set up with a limited supply of aircraft at the front line bases. The campaign is setup so that each pilot must move or ferry aircraft of his choice to the front line bases. Because of that reason, each AKA pilot would need to come up from the supply base on whatever side we decide we are going to be flying on.

This will make for long flights on the Kuban map, but it is do-able. Attacking an enemy airfield would also mean that enemy ai fighters (limited as they are) will come up to attack us, we will also have to overcome the AAA at the airfield itself and we will need to ID and destroy the various airfield targets. Hangers, Fuel Supply areas, Ammo Storage area, and Other Storage facilities.

Also, one other thing we need to consider is there is a potential chance for non-AKA human intervention on EITHER side as the current AKA Expert Server is open to the public. This could cause a wrinkle in any mission plan.



Really you never heard of that expression?
I thought that with both of us being retired public safety people with conservative views living in liberal cities, we would have some shared expressions. Maybe that expression is only a Chicago thing.

Well we have discussed the attendence and gameplay issues regarding BOTH the BoS campaign and the 1946 campaign with Taipan previously. For the last two week's now we have heard that we may have some sort of meeting to try to mitigate the issues. Alas, thats as far as we have gotten.

So, hopefully this will help explain the meaning of my prior post. 

We need to S@#t or get off the pot in making a squad decision on what we are going to do in regards to our AKA Squad only dynamic campaign.

Speaking for myself only, I am done with flying the Russian birds. Next Friday I will be up in Coconuts if we are still flying this current campaign.

Add another update this one to 3.010B

Gos, just letting you know there has been another update to BOS.

One yesterday updated to 3.010, another today updated to 3.010B

1st Impressions of the new update, are pretty good especially regarding the graphics. Whatever they did seemed to make visability a bit easier.

New BOS Update 3.010

Thanks Scorp, found it interesting reading all the various changes Coconuts has made with each varient of the campaign. Also found that he made a change to include destroying Static aircraft at an airfield depletes the available aircraft at that airfield. Similar to what we have in our 1946 campaigns.
