Iff you could have one thing in the next update it would be. (Archive)
Why is there a limitation?
I’ll try to explain it in my very bad english.
Let’s take the block 52 model. In falcon you can only have 3 or 4 skin (from 3000.dds to 3050.dds it’s an example, just random numbers).
If you want to add a new one you have to overwrite an existing one.
On other simulator you just put the new one in the skin folder and stop. You can have tons of it at the same time.
I hope I explained myself. Let me know
Didn’t know the possibility to add a skin without overwriting the exisiting one… I’ll try! Thanks!
Not knowing much,
but how would the game know they are F16Block52 Skins?
And which squadron would get them?
The files are called by the model. Which set u will see you do declare in the Falcon ui. Also from MC you can declare the set used for it for mp flights IIRC.
Don’t know if it was already mentioned (166 pages so long, not bad!): the not very realistic in-perfect-line formation of stationary battaillons. More or less okay when they are on the move, but when the reach their target they should disperse.
Bigger challenge for CAS
Well someone could post which are or for sure will be in 3-4 weeks in the upcoming release.
I’d like to suggest what is hopefully an easy fix for 4.33 (if there ever is such a thing in Falcon’s convoluted code base ;)): Can we please enable the debriefing screen for training missions? I don’t mind if they don’t contain a rating (or make it always display “average”), but I checked and the debrief.txt is being written to / updated when you exit a training TE, so maybe an option in F4Patch entitled “Show debriefs for training missions” would be the right place to put it.
I’m often flying training missions in TEs where I drop some stuff on the range and it would be nice to be able to see results after the mission just like it’s the case after a strike mission.
All the best,
thats a very very very good Point Uwe!!
One good thing - though killer for programmers could be an advanced log functionality.
Like getting the mission files weather etc the briefing and the debriefing.
Also a functionality like the one I requested from Virtuoz, but it’s going to be payware, sorry Virtuoz you r doing a great job but it’s payware, would be a comparison of briefing - debriefing, and above all save all mission related files in one place or-and naming them using the same name. So you would have the full package in one place and more easily share data. This would also be a great help for squads training programs and keeping score and evaluating pilots.
Like fly this mission give the files and the instructor later on or a third person (evaluator) can check the basics and report a score for the flight, like a pass/fail. Also it could be divided in sections like timing/nav/ altitudes attack profiles etc, if it could keep and a history by naming members and a matrix of performance per squad… like squad1, squad2, and for every squad member1, member2, etc.
This must come with a whole redesign of the ACMI functionality to the standards or above of tacview.
Like a combination and comparison of MC WDP acmi debriefing files and data. This would greatly help for basic training and for maintenance flights for V-Squads and offload their work and reporting - keeping score of each member status - level.
