Foul deck, won't clear (mission 3)


Recommended Posts

Returning from mission 3 (having restarted from "save" 3A in the mission editor), I was waved off on final because of a foul deck. And indeed, it looked like there was a Hornet with it's butt hanging way over the foul line. It might have been Smoke, I told him to kiss off a few minutes prior, but I didn't get the tail number so I'm not sure.

 

Anyway, I circled and tried 5 more approaches and that guy never moved, the deck stayed foul... so I ended up landing anyway and just narrowly avoiding him. And then I don't think the mission ever registered as complete. :(

 

What should I do if this happens again? Divert to an airfield? I don't think there's anything I can do to force-clear the deck...

Happened to me too once in the campaign, most probably same mission. Seems like a DCS:Supercarrier issue, but maybe baltic_dragon can add a workaround.

 

 

Other than that mission I haven't experienced this rest of the campaign so you should be good.

 

 

 

If you didn't progress to next mission use the logbook editing method to skip the mission. https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=2830501&postcount=181

I had the exact same thing happen in this mission. I was also using the "Save" 3A. Went around twice and finally just landed and luckily didn't hit the hornet with his ass in the runway. Took a screenshot of it (attached).

It happened to me in "save" 3A as well, but neither in "save" 3B nor in full mission 3. However in later two the parking area was crowded, and the airplanes were very close the landing area border.
