If you segregate pilots by aircraft type then you'll have 99% of people in fighters rather than 94%(literally) as it is now.


100%. Part of why TAW works is that it gives players the flexibility to be - or try to be - a Hartmann one mission, and a Rudel the next. All of it depending on the current map situation.

At the end of the day, TAW IMO remains a fighter pilot paradise. A fighter pilot for the most part, can disengage at will, and only get into trouble through their own actions. If TAW were to implement some sort of bonus system, I think it needs to be heavily skewed towards bomber/attack pilots. The way TAW funnels ground attack pilots - on both sides - to such narrow points of action combined with the deadliness of AA at every objective means you are guaranteed a brush with death every single mission. And personally, it's starting to burn me out from the server. I'm not asking for milk runs, I'd just like the option to be at 6-7 different objectives, rather than 2-3.

I couldn't agree more, and I fly mostly fighter. Flying attacker is one hell of a thing to do in TAW, and I am not a fan of losing pilots. Also putting more distance between airfields would be a good thing (less of them, but more defended, and several AA troops close to them).

It would be good for LG to verify this.  However, I know that sometimes I’ve tried to spawn at a busy airfield and I’ve gotten a message “airfield conditions have changed”, and I can’t spawn.  But, as soon as someone has moved out of the spawn point I can then spawn.  I’m not sure about aircraft stock at an airfield.

 

So 50 at one time spawned in together - no, I know you probably can’t do that.  But if pilots keep spawning and then taxi a little to leave their spawn point uncovered, that’s what I’m taking/wondering about - you could then theoretically have 50 pilots “eventually” spawned and up flying from that single airfield.

That is true.

 

Thanks for confirming Artur.  So you at least see what I'm trying to get at with respect to possibly limiting how many pilots can possibly spawn from one ("non-border") airfield, given those that previously spawned there would be taxiing or in the air already.

Frontline airfields are limited in plane number. Rearward bases such as those we usually use are not.

only if the airfields are damaged. If a airfield is damaged to like 35% there are 20 aircraft per type available. At 50% there are 5 per type available.

Yes sorry I forgot to include this (and for what it's worth, they're often damaged ^_^ )

 

How do you know this?  From testing while in TAW?   I didn't see anything in the TAW Manual page that talks about limiting aircraft spawning at any airbases (thus my question to =LG=).  Plus, unless you created the missions, I'm curious how you came to these conclusions :).

Spawn points are limited to 6 or 8 planes. You cant spawn if its occupied. Someone has to move from it to let somebody else to spawn.

I think it shows the number of aircraft available when you click on an airfield.

Ahh, you’re right, I have seen this as well (next to the picture of the aircraft).  So that would in itself limit the number of certain types of sought after aircraft for (I’m assuming) the front line airfields I suppose, including those that have been recently captured, for example.  Still doesn’t address having a bunch of players spawning at the same front line airfield (albeit with different aircraft types), but it at least imposes some limits.

Server has been down for sometime already. Any reason for this?

All servers are down, master server problem.

I don't get bent out of shape over which team wins TAW; not like I got any money riding on the outcome, but I wanted to say that while the Master Server was down and nobody was playing, but before the TAW Server stopped, BLUE tanks captured Saratovskaya and reduced the defenses at Timashevka AF from GOOD to NONE. Red tanks were poised to attack Krasnodar AF, but the TAW Server stopped before it happened. Would be nice to get a reset if possible.

I need some help with account registration. Can anybody explain me how to create another account without updating il2sturmovik account, please?

As i read in the manual : "It’s possible to register two different accounts: one for Allied and one for Axis. To switch between them please update il2sturmovik.com account to match account on TAW. If you don’t want to update il2sturmovik.com account then you have to change names of your accounts on TAW page"

 

My il2sturmovik name is Glitterman

My TAW name for my account (blue side) is Glitterman

If i change my TAW name to Glitterman_2 to play Red, it will not match my original il2sturmovik account, and i wil not be able to play. i´m confused about this. Anybody can help me about this? Thank you!

I loaded mission #401. It was the first mission without players after master server problems.

If you want to fly as red then change blue TAW account to Glitterman_2 and red TAW account to Glitterman.

Hey all, as this TAW draws to a close I just wanted to thank the server creators and admins for all their hard work, as well as all pilots on both sides. This is my first TAW and as someone who’s only been playing the game for 6 weeks, it was exceedingly fun. And nerve wracking and exhilarating and breathtakingly beautiful at times. I got my first TAW air to air kill today and it’s a moment that I will remember for a long time.

 

Great flying with (and against) you all. Thanks!

@=LG=Kathon,

 

For the next TAW campaign will you fix the Kuban map road system? Looks like TAW is using the old Kuban map, and many roads that show up in Mission Builder/TAW map are actually no longer in the game. This makes tank and supply columns not on roads, and much harder to spot. Also IMO, the Kuban map is not very well balanced in terms of AF for both sides. As soon as Red loses Krasnodar, there is a huge gap in the middle of the map that Red doesn't have an AF. It basically dooms Red to lose the map. I would take away Viselky AF and give Red an AF east of Krasnodar somewhere in the middle of map. 

 

Thank you!

 

PS. Another good campaign. Wish the teams would be more even especially during US evening time. Thanks to everyone! On to the next one.

Adding Agoy airstrip next to Tuapse on the coast could help.  It has road and rail access to support convoys/trains as well.

This most recent TAW campaign was my first serious foray into MP in 25+ years of combat flight simming. I can safely say that I have never had so much fun with an activity that I am so thoroughly mediocre at. A big thanks to the mod devs for making this event happen. Also, kudos to the participants for making it accessible to us novices, whether it was @DerSheriffmaking a TAW video tutorial or @-IRRE-Menubestof helpfully volunteering to me why my Bf 109F4 had just been downed by a Peshka's rear gunner (speed is life).

 

I've also gained a new appreciation for the Fw 190A5/U17 ground attack configuration; my survival rate skyrocketed as soon as I was able to drop bombs and scoot back to base at 500+ kph!

 

I am already looking forward to the next campaign.

Please consider to add some new type of targets to future TAW maps for high altitude bombers.


Maybe add some "mini" depots at each airfield/city where the supply trucks and trains  can launch from.
Destroying those strategically hampers the ability to repair airfields.

Probably this has been one of the most difficult tasks that I have flown to the level of the blue side and how well they have carried their machines, on the other hand to thank the comrades who gave it all in the air, and as not to the squadron = LG = once more that as always they make us feel that we are part of the story, thanks to all of us and see you in the next TAW, prepare ...:russian_ru:

I got engaged and shot down more times in Campaign 15 than any other campaign. Seemed like we were outnumbered 90% of the time, but it probably wasn’t that bad. It was also due to the quality of many BLUE players this campaign. I never got smoked by as many superb fighter Aces as I did this time, to name a few:

  F/JG300_Faucon / =PHX=-Geo (twice) / DirtyRotnFlieger  / SCG_Polo  / CN_Asuja  /  Operation_Ivy  / =PHX=-SuperEtendard


And there were several other great players who put holes in my aircraft but didn’t quite get the kill.  It was fun - - - -

 

Contents: Profanity, Go-Go Extravaganza, Memorable Encounter, Kondor Has Fun with a Couple of FW 190s, Not a Dipshit Award, Kondor Gets Robbed, KIA by Friendly Flak, Big Finish, and What’s Gonna Happen if I Don’t Get More Subscribers.

Yes!

 

Thx to All people  made TAW possible.

 

Congrats to blue side for Victory.  Espectacular scoring  7:1. Seems like reds are the  worst  :)

 

I hope some things will be tuned on TAW for next editions.

 

Bravo Ice!
