Default Will deck crew make correction in case of wrong alignment?

Hi all

Really liked the trailer which was released last friday. The deck crew looks amazing. Looking forward to the supercarrier modul with new and much improved ATC and of course the deck crew.

In case of not making correct alignment of the aircraft or not following the instructions given by deck crew (when taxiing for example) will the deck crew make corrections? How they do react in this case?

Last question: After releasing the supercarrier modul, is it planned to implement a ground crew into the air fields to make the airfields less empty.

Thanks
ViperDriver

I'm guessing they will guide you. After all, AI planes align correctly with the cat, so the system can send you the same logic it follows internally as arm gestures from the crew. just a guess though...

That would be fitting, and then they should have a tractor push you back and make you try again.

I don't see them interacting/correcting us, more we use them as points of reference for aligning with the cats. Sure, they'll do certain things when we hit our marks I'm sure, but letting us know if we're right or left during taxi to a cat might be a bit too much to expect.

I expect at least that. As it is same logic as a meatball or AoA indexer. You have front wheel/aircraft to align with specific position and the crew member job is to signal you it.

It can't be difficult to program a dot (front wheel) alignment on a line (catapult).

Actually IIRC Wags said the avatars will not marshal aircraft through hand signals. Maybe they'll have like arrows pointing the way, maybe nothing and you'll have to F2 it.

It might seem that the whole point of the deck crew was to do their job of marshalling and shooting but, unfortunately, the former was not mentioned as a feature at any time. Wishlist it goes. I'd expect something to help us connect to the cat though without using F2. But then again what I see at 56s...

I would honestly be disappointed if the deck crew can't actually direct you around. Isn't that their whole job?
