Tactical Air War

Recommended Posts

This was by far the most fun I have had in Tactical Air War and I particularly liked the balanced feel of the last map and it's plane sets and loadout options. I wanted to recognize the StG77 crew for doing a great job in the mud moving campaign. It was great flying with you all and it helped my guys gain experience providing air cover and flying bombing formations. This was the first TAW for our newly formed squadron =AVG77= which we founded on December 7th, 2018. I'm lucky to have a great bunch of guys to fly with and they did very well in this campaign. I look forward to bringing our new pilots online and flying in the next one. 

 

Thank you LG squadron for putting on TAW and many thanks to all of its supporters and participating pilots.

Thanks to everyone for a great campaign! Despite painting the Volga red with blood of our enemies (more than 1000 kills for LG!) in the end it was a deserved draw! Well played and see you soon!

Ditto.  Thank you to LG for putting up TAW.  Thanks to =AVG77= for inviting me to join and fly with some great guys.   And...  Thanks to StG77_HvB for naming me in the video even though I'm (mostly) sure I'm the one =AVG77= not in it.  I'll take credit for that nice Pe-2 landing at the end - if no one objects!  :lol:

Thanks LG for another great TAW campaign.  Your willingness to listen and make logical changes is appreciated.  I hope that some of the recent suggestions in this thread are taken to heart and applied to the next round.  This of course includes dealing with the paratrooper miss-match (i.e. one sided) functionality, to make it more fair for both sides, esp with the introduction of the Po-2.

 

Also, one more suggestion - any chance of having a map #9 with the introduction of more of the BoBp aircraft? Also, this would force a winner since there could no longer be a 4-to-4 outcome! :).

20 years ago if you wanted to fly online you had to PAY by the hour, and it wasn't cheap. In 2001 IL-2 changed everything. I'm very grateful for the game, and especially this server, that costs money and lots of work to maintain and develop.

More stuff for the website:

I would like to see the AK and Gk streak for squadrons removed in the squadron overview. Imho they serve no purpose and are not rewarded at the end of the campaign.
Nor is it a good indicator of the squadron skill.
I would propose its replaced with the squadrons Ak and Gk and add tank score. You know this one:

This way you can even sort by those stats and you can see who is 6th in the correspondent stat.

 

Another one:

imho this entire section can be moved further down. Below the map, the cities. Statisics are nice but not the most important stuff. You need the map regularly and I have to scroll down to see the players online, the map and cities and stuff.
Move the stats down and the functionality of the site goes up.

At least my 2 cents.

Cheers.
 

I will see.

Flying as rear gunner is prohibited on this server. There are several reasons for that. Usually i would just say, read the manual. I just checked the manual, and that point is missing!  @=LG=Kathon could you maybe add this line to the manual to avoid confusion about the rear gunner rule? thanks

 

The main reason is that it requires additional work and time to handle the gunners. My assumption was that majority will fly as pilots not as gunners. I will add it to he manual.

Dear TAW, is it possible to remove USA Navy or RAF aircraft skins for the next TAW? For realistic coherence?

Cheers, 

If only it's possible.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you all for taking part in this TAW campaign.

I am new to Il2 multiplayer. Cut my teeth on TAW and had a great time. I just made a donation. To any friendlies I accidentally shot up, I probably felt worse about it than you. Also, thanks to everyone who was gracious on chat with helpful information. Looking forward to the next campaign. Keep up the great work, devs!

As already mentioned earlier, the option to disable certain default skins simply does not exist in the Dedicated-Server settings.  Please don't start a discussion about things that aren't even implemented in the game-software itself! Just search for "technochat" in this thread and you will maybe understand what my concern is. 😂😂

IIRC In RoF the mission maker could lock skins so that certain aircraft at certain airfields had to be flown with a specific skin chosen by the mission maker.  Figured it would work the same way in this game as the game uses an advanced version of the RoF engine and the mission editors are very similar.

Hi everyone! I was one of the newbies making weird questions on the last few weeks. I am new to game and to this server and I found it absolutely amazing. I have a long experience in other ww2 flight simulators, but I was completely new on IL2 just a few weeks ago. What you guys did here is unheard of. I saw large scale operations working as planned, people helping each other, good coordination, and really good role models to follow. And I am not even able to connect to TS, so I was just getting the info from the in-game chat.

 

I really enjoyed doing supply missions while improving my navigation skills, and support bombers on big operations. My identification skills are still not as good as they should but I managed not kill anyone and mostly fly without friendly fire incidents (yes... i would get very close to be sure what I was looking at before starting to fire, which might have caused some chill on the other pilots, sorry about that). Exception on a friendly - but unlucky - truck (i already sent flowers to the families)

 

Thanks to all the veterans that gave me guidance and support, and to my enemies you taught me even more by shooting me down mercilessly (exception made to =19FAB=Fin who actually let me live after I begged for my life  :)). I hope you guys keep doing what you are doing and, on my part, I will be getting ready and improving my skills to be more useful to my team on the next campaign.

Another season end, and you remember it here http://forgotten-taw.tuttovola.org/

 

I thought I would do something for everyone: "Forgot TAW"
it is nothing but a copy of the old editions.
If this should be in contrast with the creators of the TAW campaign, contact me and I will eliminate everything.

I would like to thank all who are involved in TAW.
It was a great campaign with ups and downs for both sides. Some things had changed in the campaign, or had been changed by patches.
We take it as it comes and we do not cry!
A highlight for me personally was the cooperation with the LG and the Finn Squads (triple S Squad) or with the many other pilots who have managed to join the Teamspeak.
Thanks to all admins for your work on the server and in the forums.

What a nice and grateful post mate! I also add that it was very nice to see almost inexistent "Hartmanship" during this edition, LW flew very well always focusing on the most important targets which gave place to a lot of memorable and fierce fights.

This is great man. I asked to admins few editions ago if we could have this, linking in main page the history of all editions (it seems StG2_Raven didn't think it was great idea then :biggrin: ) . So it's great that you are able to do it.

Is it possible to upload previous ones? I see only 15th and 16th editions there. Grazie!

An idea for the depot AAA to prevent the destroying with many hunters.

1: more depths AAA (1-2more)
2: respawn depths AAA after 1 round (1miss-2h)

problems:
Sandbags and radio masts at the end of the runways

Another suggestion for the depots is to spread out the current number of buildings over a wider area.  Currently, the structures are very close together (within the 3 or so big sections), so individual aircraft can wipe out one whole section (or two if they are adjacent) esp if they have larger bombs.

 

Spreading the buildings out would turn the depots into more of a strategic target that would require more carpet bombing with more aircraft.  Right now they are still too juicy (IMO) for individual aircraft - more like tactical targets such as the defense positions.

 

Single bombers (or fighters with bombs) weren’t sent over to bomb an industrial target - dozens and then hundreds of bombers were.  Yes, that isn’t possible in BoX, but it can still be changed such that it would still require a larger effort with more bombers (with lots of smaller bombs strung together rather than fewer larger bombs) to have a larger impact on depot destruction, then one or two aircraft with big bombs like it is now.

Agreed HvB,

I started out in 1995 with Kesami Air Warrior on AOL dial-up. A single 4 button Joystick and Roger Wilco for comms.  5 hours a month free with AOL then $1.99 an hour after that.  Bills were often over $200 a month.

 

Thanks for the memory there

Yep, and in inflation-adjusted dollars that 1990 monthly bill would be $384 per month in 2019, which I believe would just about cover every product 777 has for sale. So comparatively speaking, life is good, brothers. Make a donation if you got a spare ruble - - -

As a first Campaign set JG51Molders would like to thank the creators of the Tactical Air War server.  Ending up at #82 of 136 squads at the end of the campaign.

We are looking forward to the next campaign to see if we cannot increase our rankings.  We are not a bunch of fliers who are on non-stop 136 hours between 9 players doesn't average out to what some of the top tier units are getting per individual.

 

In Cliff of Dover it was easy telling the different aircraft apart at a distance and now in GB not so much.  We are getting better at identifying the enemy but still sometimes......Well sometimes you have to escort a friendly home because you shot them.

 

We are putting a great deal of work into getting our tactics corrected for this series of IL2.  We are looking forward to the next TAW campaign.  So now the question remains......About a month for the next campaign?

I agree that it should be a level bombing target. So it will be grate if aaa will resplendent in every mission and low level aaa more then now. 88 enough or less.

But you need to block ju88 50*50 till a20 will setup on maps or it will be unbalanced config.

Dear Friends!
Despite some problems that appeared during this campaign, like damage model after the newest patch or another one which I will not mention here😉,we managed to bring it happily to the end.
Tactical Air War Season XVI is over.
We have now new year 2019. New year - new possibilities. Our team has a hard work to do now, because we are planning to implement new features to our "toy"😃. For example new planset which was mentioned at forum. By the way don`t forget to give your opinion in the poll. We do not promise that all the changes will come in the next campaign, maybe after season XVII, but they will come for sure, and we hope that you will enjoy them.
Congratulations for all pilots and squads from TOP 5!

Great Job to all the pilots and crew who participate in and develop Tactical Air War. The last one was great fun and my squadron and I look forward to the new changes and TAW XVII.

If anyone has any good videos and pictures from the campaign please post them up!

 

I would love to see some kinda of ATC plugin/app for the game, having someone in a commanding role deploying pilots and giving them objectives, being able to see what your team is doing etc. I understand its very easy to be ghosted by the other side though.

Is it possible to upload previous ones? I see only 15th and 16th editions there. Grazie!

 

Unfortunately I can not do it, I have to make a copy before the administrator starts a new campaign.
I had the idea only at the end of the 15th season ...

but...

if the administrator has backups of the old edition database, he could temporarily load them and make a copy of the static pages, as I did with HTTrack Website copier, I could help in this.

Unfortunately there aren't any backups. I clear the database before every start of the new campaign.

Oh i see, unlucky then. Anyway, maybe we could gather at least screenshots from main page from TAW endings prior to 15th edition. I have them from 11th to 15th; maybe someone has them from the begining, adding as you did, the dates those editions started-finished and also the outcome. I can help you out.

The brake will take more time than usual.

I think that`s just a good thing. Feels more special when TAW is not served too often.

 

And take your time to thoroughly think and adjust the changes that are most likely coming for the next episode.
