Default Invisible to all but AWACS option

I built a mission which requires the player to perform an intercept on a bogey while a companion flight remains on close escort. However, once the RED bogey spawns, the close escort aircraft break off to intercept too.

I attempted to solve this by making the bogey invisible, but then AWACS does not see it and provide you with the vector you need.

There are a number of ways to solve this problem, Neutral Coalition would be pretty cool. However, the easiest way to fix this would be to create an "Invisible to all but AWACS" option.

Any chance this could be done up and thrown into a future update?

Thanks all for a wonderful sim!

For the escorting plane, in the missoin editor (waypoint advanced actions), set it to Perform task: Escort (select yourself as the unit which is to be escorted) & ROE = Weapons Hold.


That should do it.

Ah, I have been unclear.

The close escort aircraft are supposed to stay with another aircraft, not with me.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

You can assign tasks to any unit of your choosing. Make sure to name the unit when placing it in the mission, so you can easily find it when assigning tasks and such.


for example:
2* F16C's are escort.
2*F/A-18C's which is you and a wingman.

1* Awacs


Then you can add Perform Task: Escort, for the F-16C to the Awacs, and it will escort that Awacs throughout the mission.

It's also worth going through and removing any automated tasking that might screw up the AI logic. Anything with a CAP enroute task, for instance, will happily go off an engage just about anything on the map and it's really difficult to reign it in, even with ROE and target selections that would intuitively seem to restrict it some.
