Oh, just noticed this, as I just registered... so we should hold off registering for the actual campaign until it’s cleared then.  Assuming we should wait for the big post from Kathon, etc

Morning EST

25 Red

 

Afternoon EST

90 Red

80 Blue

 

Evening EST

50 Red

20 Blue

10 uncommitted

 

Total

165 Red

100 Blue

10 uncommitted

 

I thought having the total numbers would be useful, so there you go! All in all, things are shaping up to be fairly well balanced among the groups anyway, though evening EST needs a bit of work. Who knows what might happen when the one's and two's like me throw in.

Well, we normally field 3 and rarely up to 7 at the same time. Put us in as 5 more likely. We tend to have active Private Lifes and Real Life flying to do, especially in Summer.

Suomi is still gathering the troops to the next onslaught :D

 

I'd expect we will fly on late evening EST time zone (from GMT 24:00 upto emptying the beer cans) on Axis side (if you ask me but we'll see what the squadrons will decide).

@SCG_Riksen 19// should be 5 instead of 10, realistically. That's pretty much the max we get online at once.

 

Thanks for your effort maintaining this list.

New TAW campaign starts 15.04.2018 on Sunday morning. Registration is open.

 

Changes and new features

 

  • Scenario based maps. On some maps Axis attacks so they have more limits (aircraft, tanks, pilots) and their tanks convoys spawn more frequent for the first several missions and on other maps Allied attacks so they have advantage. There also maps with draw situation. List of maps:

#1 Moscow_North – Axis offensive

#2 Moscow_South – draw

#3 Moscow_North – Allied counteroffensive

#4 Stalingrad_Center – Axis offensive

#5 Stalingrad_South – draw

#6 Kuban - Axis offensive

#7 Stalingrad_Center - Allied counteroffensive

#8 Kuban - Allied counteroffensive

 

  • The frequency of spawning tank convoys depends on three factors:
  1. Map scenario – more frequent for one side for first several missions
  2. Depot destruction – the more damage/destroyed the less frequent tanks spawn
  3. Captured area – the more captured cities the more frequent tanks spawn
  • Pilot gets CM if he ditches on a friendly airfield with any AK or GK.
  • Pilot gets new aircraft after 3 CM if his hangar is not full. Before pilot got new aircraft after sortie ended with CM. Now if pilot has 3/3CM and lost an aircraft he gets a new one.
  • New layouts of airfields. There are less buildings and more planes than before.
  • After capturing a city a train and supply convoy is send to this city in the next mission.
  • An enemy airfield is not repaired in current mission if it was attacked in previous mission. It doesn’t concern border airfields.
  • Airfields supply are also damaged after attacking and destroying airfield facilities. Airfields supply are also damaged by tanks convoys.
  • Buildings and hangars are generated on non-frontline airfields, but it shouldn’t be attacked because it will not be counted (to save cpu they are not in the log files). As before only frontline airfields should be attacked. There is text “Attack!” under it on the map in game.
  • After land of every 12 paratroopers there is a text message that inform how many paratroopers landed near enemy airfield from the beginning of the mission.
  • Gelenzik airfield fixed. Take off is towards sea not the mountain.
  • Bug with different mission ID on the www page fixed.
  • Convoys detect big rivers so they are not generated on it.
  • Bigger Moscow_South map (work in progress)
  • In mission list on the webpage there is description of the events after each mission. You may find there info about what was attack and destroyed, how airfields was damaged and supplied etc. It’s only in English version for now.
  • The manual has been updated. If something is unclear or is missing let me know.
  • Plane set as before (missing BOK planes added). Please check manual.

 

Attenction!

To fly transport mission choose bomber with text “transport” and take no bombs/rockets (it’s necessary after 3.001 update). It doesn’t concern Ju-52.

If payload are locked then you have to choose airfield and aircraft several times. It’s a bug after 3.001 update.

If you see black screen after connection to the server please wait for a while.

 

 

Good luck!

:salute:

Well I tried. I guess in the end it does not matter, some squadrons will always fly for the same side regardless of what the balance is. Sign up just opened and there are 11 LW squadrons for 3 VVS ones lol. Thanks to those who switch sides and keep the campaign alive otherwise it would end up with LW vs Nothing again

In that case SQSQ is def going red. Thank you Riksen for all your hard work. We will have to see how this TAW plays out this time.  I have high hopes it will be more even than it has been in the past. just give it some time for people to register.

Excellent news Kathon! 

However, I hope that it is not too late to edit the plane list. Currently the A-20 is not available until Map #6! Looking at the rest of the planes there this is a solid 1943 planeset/scenario. However the A-20's first saw combat in Summer of 42. A-20 should be available no later than Map #4, and even as early as Map #3.

The Plane setup is not completely historical, otherwise you wouldn't see the P40 on map 1 either nor would the G6 get a Mk 108 and so on.

I understand that. It's also why we don't see a Ju-88 map #1. 
 

But you can't make the argument that the A-20 is game breaking, to be added to an earlier map. Whereas an F2 and 88 in Map #1 for the Reds - would be (with the current planeset the way it is).

Cutting the inevitable discussion about balance / historical accuracy short, i think most agree that we play a Sim where Balance shouldn't impact historical accuracy. 

 

Therefor i don't see a point why the planeset shouldn't be accurate as well.

I do wish that the A-20 was available from the summer of 1942.  It would be historical and add fun for both sides I think.

=BES= will likely go Red as always, but we will see what balance is like on Sunday before final decision.  Only 2 on at a time though.
