Prangster's IL-2 BoS Mission Building Guide


Recommended Posts

Great stuff I am sure this will be a great recourse for many, 

 

Perhaps a duplicate post could also be put in the Manuals tutorials guides and tips section to get wider exposure

Excellent work! This must have taken an insane amount of work to produce.

 

Small remark: Maximum UL and DL in server settings are in Kb/s, I believe. In other words, setting it to 10000 will be about 10Mb/s. You gave examples, so readers should understand anyway regardless.

Hello Prangster,

I am working through your guide and may I make a comment on the Influence area.

 

on Page 58 "Select Object Menu/Edit Influence Area Boundary. Click on a corner of the Blue triangle and a yellow selection circle appears."

 

For me its a double click maybe its my setup. so could edit to "Select Object Menu/Edit Influence Area Boundary. Double-Click on a corner of the Blue triangle and a yellow selection circle appears."

 

Onwards :)

Lovely stuff, Prangster. Tom's right - no one has any excuse not to start pumping out missions.

 

I'd like to remind all: there is a "Group Sharing" thread. While in fond moments I envisage hippy-esque love-ins, this actually refers to a sputtering attempt to share functioning groups of objects and MCUs. Once you've got 'em, that is, once you've built up a library of groups, basic missions can be like lego - slot the groups together (with creative tweaks, natch!) and deceptively impressive results can be seriously straightforward.  

 

[And - sad to admit, but it's true! - it's more fun than being in game sometimes: getting shot down by [insert your own Dead-Eye-Dick here] every time you pause to admire the scenery!]

 

It rather reminds me of templates - clever hard work in the structural bits makes it much easier to do cool stuff in the creative bits. Or something... Ahem.

I am following the guide to create a mission and I have a problem which is driving me crazy.

When I create a unit interception Lagg this will put a complex trigger and area attack so that when between 109 unit is activated to start the attack, the problem is that the 109 does not trigger anything and unity is created and not to do it as if the trigger not recognise the enemy unit and not activate the plane lagg. What is the problem?

 

finally I climb the mission to see if anyone can help.

Thank you

Probably one of those moments to walk away and then comeback after 10 min and sometimes the answer is then visible.

In the trigger Double check that,

You have the event ticked  "Object entered alive"

You have selected the aircraft from objects script list

You have the country selected as Germany also to be safe tick the check entities.

 

Then you need to check the LaGG is activated and spawned by the trigger with a timer.

Can you post a picture of what you have in ME.

 

Or open the finished mission provided by Prangster and make a group form the part that works and import  it into your own mission to see any differences.

You will get there keep trying

You're welcome. I don't know of a scenario where you would not select "Check Entities" or "Check Vehicles". Does anyone know of a scenario for this case?

Awesome guide!
 

I finally took the time to start the tutorials on the guide and I learnt a lot.

 

I confess that when I tested on SP, the soviet AAA did not spawn but I probably messed something up.

Do all the complex triggers work in SP and MP?

 

I remember reading something about using different triggers for SP somewhere.
