Ironically, if they'd just support the mission objective they'd find more action than anywhere else.

Any chance of getting Caucasus blueflag back with 1.5.8?

But we have Dynamic DCS (check the multiplayer thread I created), there is slingloading and Combined Arms (1st person for slingloaded vehicles) too! A little better than OP BF almost!! Only GCI is missing...

Jup, and no lives limit which just makes it fighterspam. If 16AGR get lives going and force people to pick one side for a round, then it would be way more meaningful. Right now it is little more than a training ground for coordinated attacks on objectives, which is still something (;

Yes a lives system would do wonders.
Just flown there last night, great server fantastic mission but the single fighter type at each airbase is a bit non team focused, almost forcing you to fly solo.
It could do with having several of each main fighter and Striker based at critical bases such as Anapa and Vaziani this would give a bit of incentive to fly a proper cap or cas over long distance, less spam, more team work.
As it is now it is an airquake for solo ground pounders constantly spamming the enemy base from next door with AGM and ARM, dieing rinse and repeat until closure.

I'll try again when openbeta gets merged, hopefully this week but not that hopeful... 2.1 BF is still up though

2.1 is nice and all but not only is it limiting in terms of the map, but also in terms of planes. I get that people have been asking for this kind of setup and I am glad that they got their wish fulfilled, but pretty much no one who I got to know via BlueFlag is playing there. Ever since BF went down on Caucasus it killed the enjoyment of DCS Multiplayer for alot of people, and I personally am really torn as to wether I should pump more money into DCS when the part that I would invest in is more or less ignored by ED.

I wouldnt say its ignored... there is literally a patch on openbeta waiting to merge to stable which i'll wait to test in We'll also have the merge soon, plus a new / updated caucasus which'll mean that stability will be easier to achieve.

Nevada BlueFlag as I've said before was a quick mission to basically leave some form of Jet BlueFlag running while 1.5 becomes stable.

I know its not everyones cup of tea, but time is limited (working on SRS as well as other scripts) and I dont want to start the 1.5 map from scratch as it was a lot of work. From the last test, the mission we'd built up didnt run well performance wise, which is due to Radars and number of units.

If we cant get it running soon - we'll maybe look at taking the existing map but removing all the EWRs and Radar SAMs - leaving just IR and AAA (shilka vulcan etc) like Nevada but with the more modern variants. Plane set would stay the same (apart from harrier addition)

Don't worry, its not dead or abandoned. It's nice to hear it means a lot to people!
