Carrier Tanker and AWACS does not Orbit and Return to carrier directly


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, i have a huge Problem. I want to start up an AWACS and an S3B Mission Tanker with a Trigger. After the Trigger, the units start up und take off - but instead of doing the orbit set up in the Waypoint advanced Options, they return back to the Carrier after 5 minutes. 

The original idea was to let them circle between Waypoint 1 and 2 - waypoint 3 should be the Landing Waypoint on the Carrier - and with a Go Foreward command and a F10 Radio Menu - they should RTB. So, for clarification:

F10 Radio: Start EVENT = KI starts Mission Tanker and AWACS. They should orbit between their waypoints 1 and 2 - as normal for Tanker and Awacs.
F10 Radio: RTB ALL = KI flies direct to the Landing Waypoint and Lands - so with this trigger they should stop Orbitting and go Foreward to the last waypoint. 

I tried everything - but soon after they took off, they return to the Carrier.


Any advise?

Waypoint 1 is defined as "Fly over point" not as "turning point"

That only influences the angle with which the AI plane makes the turn (thus exactly flying over the point or not). Nothing else.

Solution is trivial. You add one more waypoint before the landing waypoint. Once the AI reaches the last normal waypoint, it automatically goes RTB. Once AI is in "going home" mode, it ignores everything else (even enemies). This cancels your racetrack. Its probably a bug but you have to count with this unexpected behaviour.

 

Btw next time please remove the unrelated stuff like the heli blocking the cats for 5 minutes on each mission start.
