New version of training missions

Hey folks,

 

Over the Christmas break I have worked on the training missions and I have heavily updated the first one and modified the others. The reason for that was that I got a TrackIR for my dad and I was watching him as someone without any experience in DCS going through the training, which gave me a lot of first hand feedback what could be upgraded.

 

I am making the missions available as a download link below and I will submit them to RAZBAM to include in the next update. Please have a look at them and let me know if you find any problems.

 

The main changes:

- subtitles for VOs are by default set to be displayed for several minutes now, especially where it is up to the player to advance the training by pressing something or using SPACE BAR. That gives you much more time to go through the text over and over again - it won't disappear quickly anymore (with the exception of those parts which are clearly descriptive and are placed one after another and played without any input from the player)

- in M1 I've added some missing stuff (uncaging the ADI, turning on the radios, using sound alarm switch and running the lights test) and highlighted more of the knobs and switches.

- (02/01/2017) I have removed some typos and updated the names of the missions (the second part won't be really noticable, but can prevent potential problems with future updates)

- (04/01/2017) Fixes to Mission 8 (bug with bombs not releasing fixed, added new line about the need to switch on the radar to EM mode and removed part about the need to change it to TAS, as it is set to it by default)

 

Enjoy and happy new year everyone!!

 

NEW TRAINING MISSIONS PACKAGE (04/01/2017)

 

Many thanks to Redglyph, Maulkin, Azrayen and others who gave me a lot of useful feedback on the training!

Well done Baltic, by the way your campaign was really cool to play even though I had some performance issue on the latest mission. Nice work !

Hi BD,

Just flew mission two. Kind of scary because I didn't figure innitially I had to lead the element initially, but finish it all right. Loved it.

BTW, pretty nice to have the briefings in PDFs. Helps a lot.

May I make a humble suggestion. Put the briefing text on the beginning of the PDFs. I am sure it will increase immersion. Well, just a thought anyway.

Tks a lot and looking forward to proceed.

Hi baltic dragon,

are these training missions interactive? I mean, are the buttons, switches etc. highlighted that you have to press?

I`m still no owner of the Mirage, but I saw a youtube video about mission 1 of your M-2000C campaign and I am really impressed by that immersion (as I was with your Enemy Within campaign) and I surely could need some good training missions before starting the campaign (in case I will buy the Mirage).

Yes, they are, you can see an exemple in

. It's very well done, and there are complements of information in the campaign, some more advanced stuff.

 

Plus, it's a great aircraft, I recommend! :)

Hi BD,

Thank you for your great hard work!!! :thumbup::thumbup:

 

In mission 1 I've noticed that the VHF frequency mode selector is jumping back to it's place (M) and I can't move to the P position. also I cant dial in the numbers myself - they keep jumping back to their original place.

In the original training mission it works normally and also in the "cold and dark" instant action mission.

Many Thanks again! :)

Just one or two tiny changes I'd make in the training 03 on navigation.

 

When setting the time to destination, it's worth mentioning that the pilot must click twice on PREP to get the correct waypoint there, otherwise it doesn't work and the extra brackets don't appear on the HUD. It's not obvious to detect why. :)

 

It's probably best to tell that the RD isn't implemented yet, after all the training is for "beginners " who are probably not aware of the missing features. ;)
