HUGE UPDATE HERE!

 

ADDED

- VOICE OVER FOR ALMOST ALL MISSIONS

 

FIXED

- Night Formation Mission : changed Texaco AA TACAN channel according to Mission Data Card

- minor changes in ATC triggers.

 

NOTES:

- there COULD be some bugs on ATC voice overs (mostly VOs cutting each others or missing) , please report if any.

- 2vs2 part of BFM, ACM and BVR missions are without VOs. This is because I plan a major change in the next week.

 

 

I'm currently working on a JTAC training mission, it's almost done , need some more testing before making the final Mission Data Card. If you want to help just PM me.

 

As for now it looks good!:D

I think I've found the problem , a wrong AI Task Push call.

 

Try this.

 

Looking good! Thanks.

 

A side note of the same mission:

AI F5Es start up way faster than player F-18C. If going for a full startup waiting the alignment to complete, player will have a good separation distance to cover once airborne. I changed F-18C to "start from parking lot hot" as a workaround.

Now it works perfectly.

 

Thanks again for creating the missions. They help newbies like me a lot.

I forgot to set "uncontrolled" on those F5s ... :doh:

Now they have the 5 min before taxi.

Last night I flew day 0 mission, escorting the Awacs.

With the weather, it can be quite therapeutic :)

One thing I find amiss, it´s the fuel quantity for the Hornet, it´s not a problem for landing, but the Awacs flies quite slow, forcing the heavy F-18 to maintain a tricky AoA.

Yeah I could tweak it to 50% fuel... :thumbup:

 

A question for all, what is your favourite mission? I dont quite have any feedback on that...

 

The Night Formation mission for me is the most intense.

I flew day 0, 1, and 2 so far. Can't quite get the AAR because I haven't done it in a while. Seems the tanker flying around 228 knots makes it a bit difficult because it feels like you're fighting the FCS system.

 

My favorite mission I think so far is the night formation. Once I got my NVG's on it and adjusted them, it was a really nice ride. I had some trouble seeing the tanker because of the darkness but adjusting the nvg's up and down fixed that.

Tanker speed during refuel is something I cant adjust it within Mission Editor.

The KC135BDA has been introduced months ago, I have to test it , but sure it has more high refuel speed which suits the Hornet.

 

Also Tanker lights during night it's something I cant force. It would be nice to have all lights up during approach to it.

No worries it's been a while since I refueled in the hornet. I'll keep trying I think I just have some bad luck because I'll line up and make it so close to the basket then the tanker initiates a turn :)

 

But I'm having fun with these missions. I want to play them in sequence so I'm forcing my self to do them in order before moving on to the attack stuff.

I tried KC135BDA just before xmas and the basket thing is wholy bugged. My advice is stick to KC130.

Good , you saved me some testing time.

 

Meanwhile , since the good amount of time on holidays , I found ispiration for have a more lively environment.

I've added aircrafts and ground vehicles in almost every mission , don't know if I will add even voice over because it takes much time to add them.

 

I've also bought a new book about Red Flag ,hoping to find some more info before rework the 2vs2 part of BFM , ACM and BVR part.

 

I hope to arrive in time for the F14 release :D

Errr,

 

 

 

Hi beppe, nice missions

 

 

 

What am I supposed to input the coordinates that tell me jtac in that in this format??

 

Thanks

I have not done that mission yet but I would think they are using the laser guided bombs so you just have to have the correct laser code and ask for lase. Unless they updated the hornet to put in grid style coordinates, you would have to convert them.

So I was doing the updated missions now. Do we still need to orbit waypoint 3 after calling in blackjack? Or do we go straight to waypoint 4 ?

In AAR and BFM mission WP3 is for refuel.

In ACM and BVR I removed the waypoint, so WP3 is the trigger for contact Showtime. After Showtime contact you orbit and wait for Springfield 1-1 to call "Ready", this triggers your "ready" call and "FIGHT'S ON!"
