Last Battle Scoring- Rel
« on: April 20, 2015, 09:48:12 am »
 8)For game info, last mission I flew a hop from mainland to Malta in C-47 for resupply. Scoring shows I made a "Ferry" hop but does not show "Supply" mission. I did not dump fuel on a fly over before landing because of instructions to land, not dump! Does the game "only" score a Supply mission when Fuel is dumped prior to landing??

You may have stopped outside the airfield boundaries???
You should get a supply drop if you parked it in the right spot and not the tow away zone. ;D
Silly question but which airfield did you park at and did you have only a default load?

Tai nailed the reason I think, maybe the plane was parked outside the little circle of the airfield.

The next primary factor is the loadout. If you went with anything other than "default" it does not constitute as a supply mission. You should have gotten a message when you lifted off that you had started a supply mission. If you were loaded otherwise, you'd only have constituted a ferry mission.

 8)What is the field boundary at Malta (or any airbase in the game)? What constitutes "Parking"? I was told that "landing" a "Default" load at a base got the same resupply score as dropping Fuel on the runway at low altitude. Never heard that parking airplanes had any effect on the game results?
What are all the real rules involved and where do we find them? What do all the new guys do for Game "ground rules"? Who's the training officer around here and where can he go for his information??

If you park within the runway boundaries you should be ok.
And as far as I am aware you do get the same supply as a drop.
Either way though, if you miss the airfield you get the shaft!
We used to have the rules in the old forum and I don't know if they are lost.
If so we may need to type up some new ones if needed.

Cheers

Wayno:

Also, if at any time during your flight you accidentally or intentionally clicked your smoke to test it or see if you had assigned the correct key, that will release all the supplies. If you then fly over the field and toggle smoke again, it's too late. The fuel load is already all gone and floating somewhere on the surface of the Mediterranean Sea because of the button test, which of course is not a good thing because you'll now start having a sh-tload of whacked out pot-head UW Husky and WWU Vikings activists storming your house for killing off the environment and contributing to global warming.

Way to go, Wayno! You're killing off all our precious and sacred seagulls.

I took a look at the log and it shows that you took default load out and I don't see any entries where you toggled smoke anywhere before you landed.    If you land you "should" get a supply mission in, but I know it can be inconsistent.  I've always tried to tell people that to guarantee a supply drop you need to toggle smoke before  you land!  In this case it doesn't seem to have categorized your flight as a supply drop.
