Cold War 1947 - 1991

A. Wolf,

Thank you for adding Su-25As to the missions. However, the new ones at Mineralnye Vody in Open Range are not working for me. They're doing that thing where they start 6 feet above the apron and then slam into the ground.

I'll check it out tonight or tomorrow at the latest.

 

 

EDIT:

Fixed!

May i ask why kh 66 are not available any more???? I think that reducing their number in the airport would be reasonable but please give us back that thing, i love it.

They are available in all missions. Didn't take them out.

im sorry but they are not avilable in 5 points mission at least, and also not available in two towns, i would like to ask if its possible to include crosswind in missions, it would make landings a lot more fun.

I'll check them out.

Crosswinds are enabled in some missions, however, no strong winds really. I'll see what I can do.

Hi Alpen, regarding strong crosswinds, as you know I have always been in favor of more challenging weather but when it comes to wind the F5 still has this bug. It has been confirmed by ED as affecting both the F5 and the F16. It is supposedly fixed internally for the next beta for the F16 but I have seen no such fix confirmed soon at hand for the F5. If you read that thread you will see, but suffice to say headwind/tailwind changes are currently doing some very weird and unrealistic things to the aircraft. Once this gets squared away, I would say have at it with some gnarly winds, good idea from @Velosocuba.

Did some Phone Booth today and it was the first time I've seen Red clear out Beslan completely. (Having two Ka-50s with the unrestricted weapons helped...) There were two hours left on the scenario and so we thought that it would get boring, but no, a bunch of other units appeared and we got some additional tasking. We had no idea that would happen and it was a fun surprise for us all.

 

Great mission design, Alpen!

Good input, buddy! We'll wait then. Let me know if anything gets fixed in that regard, please :thumbup:

Great mission design, Alpen!

Thanks! The mission is one of the oldest. It was my 3rd mission out of a total of 18. And it's STILL one of my top 3 :smilewink:

Red has managed to clear out Beslan quite often. I've done many times myself in the L-39. It's a fun mission for the Albatros.

Will do

Phone booth never disappoints, agree with @Brown Floyd, it was a good rotation last night, numerous red and blue aircraft on the mission all the way through until it timed out. I actually got to see this message on Phone Booth just before New Years. I don’t know how common it is but I don’t see that many complete victories on this server (granted I don’t get to fly as much as I used to) but it is nice to see that there are always at least a few people trying to complete the overall objectives.

It's the only mission where a new objective emerges once the previous one is completed. In all the other missions you have a total of 2-4 AG objectives at the same time which is maybe more realistic but discouraging for players to tend to.

I believe Phone Booth plays with players on a psychological level; You finish one objective and you're rewarded with a new one. This rewarding mechanism is quite intriguing and makes you want to push for the completion of the currently given objective to live up to the unknown. Like telling a child you get that later once you finish this right here. We all were children once so that joy which comes with rewarding is an everlasting feeling.

 

... hmmm, I should write a book :smilewink:

I would like to propose an idea regarding those missions where Red has no AG objectives. It should be a valid objective to do runway denial ops against each other. My point is that it would be good if at every mission each side cuold have a limited SEAD capability, like just 2 kh58s and 10 kh25mpu. that could add another dimension to areial warfare in the server. Let me know what you think about this.

I stopped editing new missions over the last 5-6 months to kind of enjoy the 18 missions we've got so far. However, editing new missions will be resumed soon.

 

February shall deliver!

I'm not a master, my friend :smilewink:

As nice as that feature is, but external views could and will be misused in combat. Sorry to disappoint you.

It'd be nice if DCS had the option to allow F2 view whilst still with weight on wheels, oh well.

Nevertheless its very fun to use the missile. Either way i think you could limit a lot more the amounts of AG ordnance, i just love when R60Ms run out and we are forced to use less capable ones, also i think there are too many external fuel tanks available, it would be a graeat challenge if they run out and we have to control fuel a lot more. I just love how hardcore this server is, my navigation skills have emproved a lot since i started flying here. Last but no least, thank you very much for this implementation of the Cold War,

The F10 map restriction is the most underrated feature of this server, I think. It feels very realistic and immersive to be frantically searching for the ground target (e.g., Blue EWR-1 in the Desert. If you know, you know.) while the AWACS is calmly giving you reports of a bandit closing in fast, or trying to figure out where you are after a dogfight and you're at bingo fuel. It feels like cheating and I hate it now when I go to another server and they've got you and all the blue force displayed perfectly on the F10 map.

Can't limit the fuel tanks because there is no actual "we" on any of the two fighting sides, Red and Blue. Most players fly solo and care only about themselves (otherwise they'd team up or provide escort, etc. - yeah, I know some have language issues, but many don't and still refrain from cooperating with others). It's not like they'd show up and think; "oh, I better save fuel for my friends!". Yeah, right...
