Intermittent Datalink Air Picture on Marianas Map

Open Beta, v2.7.4, just before the 11 Aug 2021 update.

 

We have mod'd the canned Viper sight-seeing mission.  We put tankers and E3 on it; however, we see these sporadic issues:

  • The AWACS system tracks are only sporadically available, as well as the Hornet's ability to pick up the tankers and friendly aircraft.
  • When the AWACS doesn't show the tankers, when you call or look for tankers, E3 says unavailable. 
  • The tankers say they are unavailable for refueling.
  • System tracks shared among the friendly fighters are only intermittently available, even tho you are flying next to them (Hornet, Harrier, Viper, AWACS, Tanker, etc.), so we don't think it's a line-of-sight problem.
  • At other times during the mission, everything runs normally, and we see each other, with AWACS providing tanker vectors, etc., normally.
  • AWACS and Tankers are set up the same as on our Syrian map missions, although I can't rule out my idiocy with the ME and adding these aircraft.  MIZ file enclosed.

 

Before I go into a bunch of research, would any potential linkages among the aircraft and map/terrain cause this?  Anybody else see the same?  

 

Thanks in advance.

The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

Anyone else notice that members of your flight are not showing up in the HSD, but only while in MP on Marianas map?  I do see AWACS and Tankers etc, but not members of my own flight.  This issue doesn't happen on any other map.

Yes, sir.  Check this thread.

Same Problem here. Training with 5 players F/A-18 on Marianas, human players did not show on HMD.

 

 

If you had them included, did you also notice sporadic drops in support aircraft (tanker, AWACS, etc.) on SA pages?  TIA!

@BIGNEWYDid a bit of testing, spawned just 2 blue FA-18Cs, 1 E-2D.

When my wingman is AI I can see him on the helmet every time.

When my wingman is client I cannot see him at all, or he shows up as "FA18" (AWACS detecting him, but he is not showing inside fighter-to-fighter datalink group)
