Trouble with forcing AI to stay on track


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I need a bit of advice with the attached mission I'm making. I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong.

 

In the mission, I have 4 x F15C (Chevy 1) that will be acting as TARCAP over the mission area (the EWR site near Sukhumi airbase). They're supposed to fly to Waypoint 1 at 30,000ft at 380Kts. Here they'll hold in an orbit until 0700 when they'll push to the target area. They'll then hold in an orbit here for 10 minutes and engage any aircraft that enter their AOR.

 

At least in theory....

 

During testing, I've noticed that they don't actually follow the above flight plan. They start off fine, cruising along at 30,000 @ 380Kts. Then about halfway to Waypoint 1 they suddenly dive down to around 800ft and go max thrust. They maintain this till they get to the holding point, when they climb to 30,000 and hold as expected. When they push to the target, they do the whole 'hit the deck and go full burn' thing again until they hit bingo and run home.

 

I can't figure it out. All the waypoints are set up correctly. I don't have any additional settings on that would change this. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong but I can't see what, is anybody able to give me a hand?

I can't look at miz file right this second but any chance it's a reaction to threat issue or something? I'll stick my head into it in an hour but thinking out loud.

 

Hey, yeah I thought this at first. I had them set to 'Evade fire' as a threat response. I removed that though and it's still the same issue. I'll try setting them to ignore threat and see what happens.

Had a look at mission, disabled all your commands for chevy 1 and put in Reaction to Threat = ignore threats and even Evade fire and it doesn't do the dive to ground, which is happening at the ship moskava detection range marker, so It is the threat.

 

Put all your commands back in and still works fine, so long as their is a Reaction to Threat = something other than the default. Saved to new filename using DCS v1.5.6.1938.
