I got some C-17 flying at FL310 mininum, but I would like to know if I can speed them up, they fly so low with a funny alpha.

I've done the exact same thing and had fun setting up the mission and leveraging the RAT functionality (thanks @funkyfranky)  One bookmark I use quite a bit is this one for MOOSE.  The documentation i

Hi guys,   I have been working on a new implementation - simply named RAT - to generate random air traffic. This is something I was missing a lot in many of my missions :)   So what is RAT about? R

Hello,   The actual script that is inside the mission isn't the one you show above .. .it is this one:   local yak=RAT:New("RAT_YAK") yak:Spawn(5)   When you edit a scr

I have a problem:

I can't stop the ratmanager. Whether "manager:Stop(60)" nor "RATMANAGER:_Stop()" works. It runs forever. Even starting another lua- ratmanager script with additional units doesn't stop the first one.

I am thankful for every hint.

Edit: Found this errormessage in the log:

As of the latest version of MOOSE, v2.5.0 pre2, (RAT Script) large planes are still colliding

with ground objects. It's probably more of an airport design more than anything,

I mean, who puts buildings and fuel tanks right next to the taxiway? Nothing larger than a Cessna

could get through. Maybe a Yak 40. Certainly not an airliner.

 

Maybe you could allow the wings to "ghost?" When the first plane gets hung up like that,

then the rest of them can't do anything either. They just sit there.

 

OH BTW, "SetDestination" and "ExcludedAirports" commands don't work.

Either the script won't load, or I get an error message like this.

(Example: A380:SetDestination({"Dubai","Abu Dhabi"}) etc. Even one destination triggers the error.

yeah, finding parking spots for larger aircraft is really difficult in DCS. you can set terminal types but the big ones often make problems. I implemented a scan that checks the vicinity around the parking spot for statics and scenery. Not sure if it is enabled by default.

Make sure you use airbase names exactly as spelled in the mission editor. For example, Dubai is called "Dubai Intl".

Thank you Franky, seems to be working somewhat. In this test mission,

all the planes take off from Chippelle, the radio messages say that planes

are landing in Lignerolles, but are not actually landing there. They are landing elsewhere.

What's going on?

:lol:yeah, that stuff always looks nice. Use for example :SetTerminalType(AIRBASE.TerminalType.OpenBig) to avoid the hardened shelters for bigger aircraft.

hey guys, trying my hardest to write a script for RATs but i genuinly just dont get it,,does anyone have an example full script for persian gulf map that i can look through,edit and use please?

 

many thanks

 

this is my script... it works except for flying out of the map via a trigger zone:

 

local c17_2={}
c17_2.outbound=RAT:New("RAT_C-17", "C17 Europe")
c17_2.outbound:SetTerminalType(AIRBASE.TerminalType.OpenBig)
c17_2.outbound:SetDestination("RAT Zone A")
c17_2.outbound:StatusReports(true)
c17_2.outbound:SetMaxDistance(350)
c17_2.outbound:SetSpawnDelay(1200)
c17_2.outbound:SetSpawnInterval(1200)
c17_2.outbound:SetTakeoff("cold")
c17_2.outbound:RespawnInAirNotAllowed()
c17_2.outbound:RespawnAfterTakeoff()
c17_2.outbound:Spawn(1)

 

could be the problem that the trigger zone does not allow spaces in name? any other constellations works except this one...

i get a message ingame from the script: similar like this "no suitable destination airport found"?

Has anybody an advice for me?

@gonzo: my whole script is attached... others are functionally.

c17_2.outbound:SetDestination("RAT Zone A")

c17_2.outbound:SetMaxDistance(350)

 

to solve my problem... the Destination Zone must be in range... so set maxdistance to higher value, it works... but error message is pretty confusing. :-)

 

and... i use RAT on Syria... it is functional...

Please help. How to force planes to fly from one air zone to another and despawn in middle air?

 

[b][b]RAT:DestinationZone()[/b][/b]


Destinations are treated as zones.

Aircraft will not land but rather be despawned when they reach a random point in the zone.

 

 

local yak=RAT:New("RAT_YAK")

-- Set takeoff type to air.
yak:SetTakeoff("air")

yak:SetDeparture({"RAT Zone West", "RAT Zone South"})

yak:DestinationZone("RAT Zone North")

-- Spawn ten Yak-40s.
yak:Spawn(10)

 

Planes not reaching the destination zones but land at random airports.
