M257 flare rockets illuminate over land only


Recommended Posts

HI.

 

They does not illuminate over water, land only.

Also HOT is set at 3,000 feet and it fires at 7,000. Do I something wrong or is that another issue? I attach track.

 

Thank you.

 

Antonio.

If you could just RTFM. Page 557

Height Over Target (HOT). This setting allows you to enter the altitude in feet that the flare will be at when at its mid-burn point.

Yes, I read it, but even introducing a low value (1,400 feet) the flare starts firing at the same height, not at 2,800'. It seems that the rocket flies 15-17 seconds always and then ignites.

But this was a secondary issue and deserves another post. I should post here concerning the tittle only. No flare light over water.

As you can imagine, if the HOT is in mid burn it has some lower limit sa the flare burns stright to the ground. so probably ~3000 ft is minimal value to not burn on the ground.
I don't know if it's as IRL or not.

I just did some testing, it seems when you first save and activate the profile, it reverts back to 0, however when you change the settings again it updates properly (a bug in and of itself?).

 

But yes, the flare should illuminate over water, and it doesn't.
