Mission 4: Wingman takes all fuel from tanker before CASE III


Recommended Posts

Hi all - working my way through the campaign and so far having a blast. I finished my assigned tasks in Mission 4 and told Weed that we should head to the tanker before landing, as I burned up a little too much while in the mission area. I guess I should have gotten to the tanker first to avoid this issue but when we arrived, Weed plugged and then took all of the fuel from the tanker. Once he disconnected, the tanker item in the comms menu disappeared and I was no longer able to request a join/pre-contact. Amazingly, I was able to land on the carrier in my first attempt but had 500 lbs of fuel remaining by the end of it. Is there a way to limit how much fuel Weed takes to ensure the player can move on if you aren't the first to arrive at the tanker?

Hmm... it could be possible, but would require a lot of work, testing and some scripting - for an event that is a rather rare instance (it is the first time I see report like this since release of R1) I don't think it is worth the effort at this stage. It looks like AAR causes as much grief for the players, and AI refuelling makes it even more difficult... in any case for any future missions: always get to the basket first. If AI runs out of fuel - you won't loose the mission or points, so don't worry.

Thanks for taking the time to review this! Makes sense to me though - wasn't sure if there was anything in the mission editor that allows for choosing how much fuel an AI unit receives. I just need to work on my rejoin speed now that I can consistently plug.

 

Looking forward to reviewing the full campaign when I finish it - so far it's excellent 🙂

The refuel bug I have seen outside of the campaign, it's a DCS bug. You can order the wingman to rejoin after you think he's had enough.

 

Edit: Except of course in R1 he might not be your actual wingman....

Hey, the AAR bug is a DCS-wide thing, which we reported and people at ED are investigating. Something is broken and even the triggers that would normally tell the AI to stop the orbit don't work. We need to wait for it to be fixed...
