The Anubis Hercules is becoming one of those "must have" add-ons. Any way of including it?

Yes, that's not a problem.

CombatFlite update 1.1.1.8 is out!   Changes: Added Radial Menu (right-click in map area) Added Nevada TPC raster map Added 'Minutes since WP1' and 'Minutes since Push

Episode 2 of CombatFlite Tutorial videos is up. It is the first video of a two-part tutorial covering basic mission planning functionality of CombatFlite.  

CombatFlite v1.1.1.6 (and a quick 1.1.1.7 hotfix) is up and running!   Changes include: Improved Mission Panel UI Added BDU-45 for DCS F/A-18C Added APKWS for DCS AV-8B Added ammo

Great work! A couple of minor issues;

 

If you re-import a mission that already has a kneeboard created from CF, it doesn't delete the previous Mission Cards - so you get 2 sets of mission cards. In other words, the original mission cards are not overwritten if you create a newer, updated set.

 

Also, importing a mission with a set TOT, the import doesn't seem to pick up a set 500kt inbound speed from IP to TGT. Rather, it's interpolated the speed between the 2 fixed time points, ignoring the GS at the TGT fixed point. Of course, the effect of this is that all the interpolated times between the 2 fixed time points don't match

 

.. edit .. actually creating a flight plan in CF doesn't seem to like a fixed TOT with a specific GS from the IP.

 

Thanks a lot 🙂

X 2 on multiple copies of kneeboards mentioned before my post. Perhaps a button to clean up previous kneeboards when loading new ones 
 

I absolutely love this tool. The idea of being a mission planner vice a mission builder is so much more appealing. 
 

Looking forward to seeing some additional tutorials.  There are so many new features.

Viper,

 

When you add the Anubis Hercules to the Flights pull-down list can you also drop in the AI C-130 and AI C-17 pretty please?  

I don't need no stinkin' GPS! (except for PGMs :D) :pilotfly:

Googled definition:

A precise point, associated with a target, and assigned as the center for impact of multiple weapons or area munitions to create a desired effect. May be defined descriptively, by grid reference, or by geolocation. Also called DMPI. See also aimpoint; desired point of impact.

 

Basically specific aimpoint(s) within a target area.

You're welcome. The C-130 and C-17 aircraft have already been there. If you mean the AI (Air Interdiction) task (a.k.a Ground Attack in DCS), this task is not available for those aircraft. You need to select either task 'Transport' or task 'Nothing'.

Edit: This appears to be cleared up as of version 1.1.1.4.

 

Working on setting up a basic Transport/Escort mission. I was adding the escort flight, and opened the aircraft configuration window from the left sidebar. I made all my changes, and copied to all flight members.

 

The attached image shows where I am stuck. The configuration window is on top of everything else and will not close. It will minimize, and I can move it, but remains on top. Alt-F4 does not close the window. In order to get out, I had to force close the program.

 

Nothing about this is particularly complicated, and I am only about ten minutes into the mission setup at this point. Am I missing something obvious?

My bad, operator error ... literally ... I had not selected Transport ... LOL Merry Christmas Viper!

Greetings Andrew. Once you build or import an existing mission just select the briefing button and let It auto generate your mission briefing . You can regenerate the briefing as you work on the mission. The amount of data it is capturing  for the briefing is impressive. 

 

What you see in my attached pdf is displaying things directly from what I did in CombatFlite.  I will add the ATO and Tasking later.

Cheers, dmpi, I need to add those to mine.
I'm just getting in to writing multi squadron missions for our group, I like the snapshot and opacity features. It makes it nice and easy to export it to something like slides.
I also like the layers aspect.

I'm interested in how to present a brief to a multiplayer squadron group before flying the mission.
