Suggestion: Small enhancment to Aerial Refuelling Tanker AI

Recommended Posts

The AI logic for air-to-air tanking might benefit from this relatively small change.


At present the AI will cancel your clearance to connect after some arbitrary period of time if you have not successfully connected. Often this will be at the point when you are just 2-3m from connecting to the basket.

Air-to-air refuelling is a difficult task and developing the skill in not made easier by the AI cancelling your clearance just as you are about to achieve a successful connect.

My suggestion is that the logic be enhanced such that while the player has clearance and is within 100-200m of the tanker, their clearance is *never* cancelled and any timeout counter towards cancellation is not incremented.

This change might also help reduce the number of AI tankers downed by frustrated players.
