Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

I like it the way it is, it seems to have the right balance of encouraging wish to survive but not so draconian it drives too many people away.  I wish I had more control over how my planes are resupplied. I lost my 110, had the "prefer bombers" selected, but it added another 109 to my stable...Don't know where the 110 fits in since it is an "attacker".

When you know your OWN plane is on the line, rather than a bushel of community planes not only are you going to be more careful since you have only yourself to blame, but you're not going to see every Yak-1 and F-4 get cratered day 1.

 

I agree. It's a good idea, but wouldn't work in practice. 

 

Your comment made me think of an interesting idea tho... We can do a bit of an economics experiment and pit capitalism against communism by letting the Germans use the individual plane system, and the Russians the team-wide plane reserve system! It will be historical, and we can watch as socialism fails once again XD

 

(Obviously kidding haha but it would be funny! Not to mention that the economy under the Nazi regime was anything but capitalism...)

Good news, cause the TAW is attarctive for me only! The other servers are boring yet. I dont mind with previous planeset, map or targets. Only do with balance blue/red pilots (and immovable convoys just a bit)

I have only one request guys. Try to keep balance between sites (blue/red) when youll be registrating accounts. We dont have solutions to soleve this out exept blocking slots and we dont want to do it. Thik about it nex time before registratin your accounts.

TWB alternates coalitions, so this upcoming round we will all be flying for Russia. Hopefully this will help with balance; however, registration doesn't show the full picture when considering the times that each pilot will be flying.

 

Salute and Good Hunting!

Exp points are counted for gk and ak.

And for now, there are no experience or other points provided for this kind of flights. But reconnaissance missions are not unrewarded.These sorties, as the all other ones, if lasting at least 10 min. are nothing else like Combat Missions. So if you get to base in one piece, you will be granted with combat mission.

You get combat mission for staying alive for 15 minutes and landing afterwards.

 

You don´t get points for finding position of enemy targets for your ground attack planes. 

 

So it is unrewarded.

In this round the moscow map will be on server?

Not this time. Moscow is in development.

According to our statistics a lot of people don't have BOM so all what can we do is only say... Its time to purchase BOM if you want to fly in 1941 ;)

All maps are available to everyone in mp regardless of ownership.

 

2.003 Update info

 

5. BOS players who don't own BOM yet can login to multiplayer servers hosting the Moscow map and vice versa for the Stalingrad map and BOM only owners. However, you must own the planes offered in the mission to fly them.

The server IL2org.ru have a nice way to record Recon and escorts.

Launch a smoke on target range or over bombs to escort then. Maybe this can work here too. Landing Lights or winglights can be used :)

New TAW campaign starts 02.10.2016 between 14:00 and 16:00 UTC

 

No fixed start hour is due to “flood effect” when too many pilots wanted to connect to the server at the exact same time. Registration will be open on Sunday.

 

We would like to thank all the pilots who donated the TAW server and would like to encourage those who didn’t but want to :) Even one euro, like one beer, is precious for us. 

 

I have created new topic http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/25544-taw-bugs-errors-and-problems/ for reporting bugs, errors or problem exclusively. It will be much easier for me to find such things. I will also post this info and other future news in the first post of this topic. It will be easier for you to find out latest news.

 

Changes and new features:

  • “Unknown” result after sortie fixed.
  • Cases when pilot or gunner shot down himself fixed. Now AK is counted to attacker airplane.
  • Registration issues fixed. It’s possible to change pilot name now.
  • Destroying airplane during landing gives “Ditched” instead of “Landed” result.
  • Campaign ends after 360 missions or when one side wins 5 maps in total (it should extend duration of the campaign)
  • You may supply your friendly airfield by transport planes. To fly supply mission you must takeoff from airfield damaged less then 40% and land on airfield damaged more than 0%. One successfully landed transport plane supplies airfield by about 4% and count “combat mission” to pilot. Defense position (anti-tank artillery) can’t be supplied by transport planes (only by supply convoys). Supply missions have no effect on airfield in two cases:
  1. airfield was destroyed more than 85%  by enemy planes in that mission
  2. airfield was captured by enemy transport planes in that mission
  • Capture airfield sortie by transport plane counts “combat mission” to pilot.
  • No more unlimited planes. Transport planes, Ju-87 and Il-2 ’42 are replenish after each mission by 2 planes (and only by 1 if pilot destroys more that planes than are available in mission)

Planeset_v1_3_3.jpg

 

  • Pilot’s death, capture or DISCO resets “combat mission” and ditched planes.
  • Small ground units may be located somewhere near the front line. No icon and any info for them. Watch out, they have AA.
  • New message when enemy plane is near depot.
  • You may have only one TAW account.

 

 

And now the most exciting part :)

 

As I wrote before there is pilot who would like to reward fighter with max AK in total and bomber pilot with max GK in total on Axis and Allied side regardless on campaign result (four pilots will be rewarded). The prize is Battle of Kuban – Premium Edition. Pilots who already own Battle of Kuban will not be taken into account. Sorry L

 

After end of TAW campaign BoK as a gift will be send to:

  • Pilot with max AK in total who doesn’t own BoK on Axis side,
  • Pilot with max AK in total who doesn’t own BoK on Allied side,
  • Pilot with max AG in total who doesn’t own BoK on Axis side,
  • Pilot with max AG in total who doesn’t own BoK on Allied side

 

It’s expected that winners will activate their awards immediately.

 

You may find actual AK/GK statistics on http://taw.stg2.de/stats.php as Air Kills and Ground Kills respectively. Remember that AK/GK is counted if you end your sortie alive and not captured.

1.      If two or more pilots have the same AK/GK then next determinants are: less deaths, more experience, less flight time.

2.      If there is one pilot with max AK and GK on the same side then he will be given only one award. Next award will be given to pilot with second max GK.

3.      Other drawn cases will be analyzed individually.

4.      Pilots suspected of no fair play will be checked and possible banned and removed from contest. Bear in mind that constantly shooting down the same pilot or group of pilots is very suspicious. Even if you change IP address or create new account with different name there is always the same your USERID  in log files.

 

 

Good luck!

Great news ! Looking forward to it.

 

Now I just have a problem with one thing in the new mechanics :

 

Pilot’s death, capture or DISCO resets “combat mission” and ditched planes.

This is clearly an encouragement at chutekilling and strafing ditched airplanes.

Expect a constant flow of complains with that...

 I thought that would still be counted, just not as streak? Or has that changed in this coming campaign?

SC1000 Not allowed on He111?? Cmon is the only good thing against the P2. 

 

Leave the poor 111 on the hangar and use the 88, brother. :salute:

We just wanted to make collecting combat missions little harder. War reveals the darkest side of the human nature in the real and in the TAW server as we can see.

It was always like that. You have to be alive at the end of the sortie to count AK/GK .

 

SC1000 Not allowed on He111?? Cmon is the only good thing against the P2. 

Forbidden is 2xSC1000. Payload 1xSC1000 is allowed. Look at the plane set table.

DISCO result is when your airplane is damaged by enemy and then you disconnect. If you accidentally disconnect after takeoff or airplane isn't damaged then it's not counted as DISCO.

Its all looking good,

especially the 'disco' bit. So many times i've hit people and they have left game to avoid losing a life or resetting of combat missions!

Question: Do you get the 'kill' if someone leaves the game; ie disco's after you hit them?

 

Keep up the good work!

I have another question which i could not find an answer yet.

 

Is the server running constantly from today on  and just restarting for the new campaign Phase or are there "playing hours" every day?

Server is online 24/7 for campaign.

Thx mate. Its my first tim you now  :biggrin:

 

 

Edit:

 

Maybe one other Question. So far i did not fully understand how Ju-87 and Transports are replenished. What do you mean by "after each mission by 2 planes"? Does that mean i need 2 missions to gain one Stuka?
