Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

Ok all another new ? Not about balance:). I just went up in rank to Oberfeldwebel and 1/2 way to 200 went on a mission. With a wingman and absolutely blasted a target. And received nothing. Then I got shot up but emergency landed unfortunately it showed captured. Now my partner made it back and showed no ground kills just like me. And I did not die. And now it shows i went all the way back to 0/100 and lost a rank. I read thru rules and don't see anything about that. Just that if you die you get no points. Can anyone help me on that.?

Death and capturing decreases your points. I didn't have time to write about it.The manual is very not up to date and I must correct it before next campaign.

 

Kathon, I might have found a bug. Sortie says I crashed rather than ditched. I actually landed in a field. (For clarity, I landed on my wheels and did not further damage the aircraft.)

Also I was wondering regarding the "Ditched Column": does it only update after the server rotates to a new session?

Not a bug. You landed on 1126.7 near Krasniy city and that was Axis territory. You can't retrieve aircraft from hostile area.

 

The get new password feature does  not seem to be working. The new password it gives does not work and so I can't check either of my profiles.

I will have to check it. Please check PM.

 

the rules stated that the airfield without the token "attack" will be without the objects and they cannot be bombed?

yes, Destructible building are generated on front-line airfields were Attack! text is above on the map in game.

Thanks for the info, Kathon!

Mr Kathon

 

No worries sir. Points reduction I could see and understand. But I was at next rank so I thought it would just go to 0 for that rank that was achieved and not go below.My thinking as you progress to the next rank it is permanent but your points can go up or down. No worries thank you for all you do with TAW even though I'm not very good I still love it.

 

Side note I landed at my base safely after a mission and struck my prop but feathered and rolles out safely to parking area, but was credited with an emergency landing and a ditch in plane set. But I was landed already what did I do wrong. Did I park in wrong area.

Damaged prop is an instant ditch in a single engine plane. If in a twin engine plane, you can 'get away' with just one prop broken. 

 

Once landed in an AF, ending mission anywhere in the AF will credit you with mission. You don't need to go to a specific area.

PM replied. Thanks. I've not been able to play since the beginning. Looking forward to short side. :)

 

 

I love all the targets.

 

Do we get two P40's yet?

Можете ли вы включить функцию атаки всех аэродромов. Зачем в брифинге пишут повреждения тыловых аэродромов? В чем тогда "тактика"?

I'm US Central time, this server dies just about every night at about 10pm. Most NA pilots I know gave up on it. Every night we waste time flying it only to have it die yet come back up for EU players the next day.

 

This whole new campaign has been a complete nightmare.

Has to have “Attack!” over the airfield on the map. No objects will spawn at rear airfields (you actually have to attack airfields that have a chance of being defended ;), no milk runs).

It was not rear airfield, but i guess you are right. Odd thing was, that it had some structures there, but not the hangars :--(

Yes it does kinda suck, and it looks like the finger is being pointed at the dev's DServer in this case, but I find it odd that some servers are able to be hosted and work with no problem (coconuts for example). There has to be something that TAW introduced in this last campaign that's not working correctly, but who knows what that could be.

There are a couple issues, like VVS sometimes being outnumbered by some silly ratio(not so much on Kuban though!) or the server crashing at inopportune times for non-Europe people.  But as these problems are worked out, a lot of fun(and maybe victory) can still be had with a bit of positivity.

Can someone explain to me why i did not get CM1? 

 

You didn't get a combat mission because:

  1. Your flight was less than 25 minutes in a fighter
  2. Your kill was creditied to you after you landed and finished your mission

So essentially, when you finished your mission the script saw the following:

  • Flight Time:  23 minutes
  • Air Kills:  0
  • Ground Kills:  0

What you need:

  • 25 minutes in flight WITHOUT any kills and a successful landing (or end mission "IN FLIGHT")
  • 5 minutes in flight WITH a GROUND or AIR kill and a successful landing (or end mission "IN FLIGHT")

Sorry guy, you got screwed here by at most three minutes, but your kill was credited to you 1.5 minutes after you landed.  It happens, at least you didn't lose a pilot or aircraft :)

I believe this happened because, the aircraft you damaged was not logged as shotdown until after you landed. Therefore at the time of landing you had not technically scored a victory. I don't know if the server would correct this at a later time after a restart, but I doubt it.

Is it possible to get them logged as CM's if i ask really really nicely? I worked hard for them  :biggrin:

Take a PE-2 with no bombs or ammo for your offensive guns, takeoff from an undamaged field and land on a damaged field without taking damage on the way.

I was under the impression that you could take ammo for the offensive guns, just no bombs.  However that might have changed since the last time I flew on TAW as a transport.

Is there something special about the way TAW calculates damage?   I was a little surprised to see that after smoking both engines on a 110 and causing a fuel leak the log shows I did 0.005 of damage.

Why is no penalty yet on the server for shooting dawn parachuters? I think its a war crime, but the game encourage it.

I'm not moralist, but its filthy action and the game stimulate to do this. Just think that it is wrong. My oppinion: killer must have time penalty just like victim.

Hey All I attacked a position today. With a 500 and 2x 250kg bombs. At near vertical from about 3k the position was full in my gun sight and outside. Almost crashed coming out. Pulled out on egress and watched the explosions. But yet after after I landed my best one yet. And dominant a yak. I didn't get any credit for hits or damage.how can that be.

Yes it is wrong but war is hell. I'm not a chute killer personally but I like it that people have the freedom to choose. Moral decisions as well as tactical decisions...

Will we ever see objectives composed of ships on the sea or the rivers?

 

 

 

We already do, sometimes.  I was lucky enough to be able to fly two sorties against ships yesterday.

I agree, more ships would be great imo. But how to implement them? As part of global supply modifier maybe?

FYI- The "distance bug" in il2missionplanner + TAW integration has been fixed... please continue to report bugs, and happy navigating  :salute: 

 

PS: If you still see the bug, do a forced refresh of il2missionplanner.com in your browser. This is Ctrl+Shift+R or Cmd+R in Chrome, for example. It should visibly refresh the page.

No, damage is taken from log files.

Do you have a track recorded? It's hard to say anything without seeing this defence position. Maybe it was destroyed earlier and not much vehicles left to be destroyed?

Ships on Kuban maps work as supply convoy. They increase global limits.

 

In future maybe we add ships on Stalingrad map.

Another New Guy? So i wanted to expand my gameplay and learning. I made another Character to Fly VVS. and the profile is in TAW and on the IL2 Fourm (SCG_Kamozin)  but when i try to login for the game to get to the Multiplayer or just game in general. it tells me Invalid Email or Password. I sent a support ticket on the forum to help desk but got an email back stating they had no idea what i was talking about. So my question is how do I login with my other SCG name to fly VVS. or what do steps i need to do. I' ve scoured the forums and such and nothing is coming up so i am here.

You have to use the same IL-2 account. The game is registered to your email and login information, so a new email means you would have to buy the game again. You must only change your profile name on the IL-2 website.

Go to "https://il2sturmovik.com/"and log in using your normal game login (email address & password) then go to 'Profile' and change the user name (and squad tag if you used a different one for your TAW VVS pilot)   Having a different user name will not stop you going into the game or MP etc.  It just means that when you go into the TAW server it will see your VVS username and set you as VVS.
