Spitfire MkXIV added to planeset 7 rear fields without clipped wings or 150 octane gas. Sets 8 and 9 have no restrictions.

Bf 109 F-2 removed from set 1. It had no place there.

I feel i have to thank You guys for your superb server! I had real blast playing on it lately!

 

while not being a tank man at hearth, i bought quite long ago the TC just to support the devs. Only just yesterday and today i tried it out  and it was just glorious!

 

I felt real fear seeing the circling ducks and ju87Gs near by. I was hopping form forest to forest praying that they dont notice me. felt pure joy when the allied fighter chased them off and felt pity when the 109s got him shortly after.

 

than the hide and seek with enemy player controlled panzers, just glorious!

Thank you guys for providing us all with a great server, and countless hours of fun and crashing my plane over and over.

Yesterday I coordinated a flight of escort fighters to provide fighter cover for our Hs129s to provide cover while we supported a tank at the control point with flying artillery.

 

Carl, Was that your Soviet tank at CP#1 about 11 hours ago? If so, I was the duck that finally found you and subsequently hit a tree.@Carl_infar

Could be as i was fighting in M4 around cp1 for around 3h and seen many planes low over the forest.

Was really grate fun

Bring a friend with GAZ along on the next ride ;) ... Had the time to test it out couple of nights ago, seems like a lot of fun. Runs out of ammo pretty fast though 😬

Nothing like seeing a Spitfire on your tail, then inverting ASAP to show the red stars on your undersides :lol:

Thank you Temuri.  I see that you have introduced the Spit XIV at the same time as the Bf 109 G-14.  Thing is, it was the Bf 109 G-6 Late that was introduced in early 1944 about the same time as the Spitfire XIV, not the Bf 109 G-14, which did not arrive until July 1944.  The in-game specification notes for the Spitfire XIV state combat debut as January 1944 (first operational sorties began 8th January 44), which is 6 months before the 109 G-14 arrived.

Also, if you click on this historical combat report (below) from 7th March 1944, it shows Spitfire XIV aircraft engaged with FW 190 aircraft 4 months before the 109 G-14 arrived.

G6 Late is better plane in game then G14, same caracteristics but with 30mm, so in end dosent realy mather. I expected they gona just add Spit14 at planset 8 and then all mods at 9, as its balance thing not historical here.

 

For me planset 5 is strange with G6Late added with all mods so early, and spit9 because of it.

Then its my mistake, i was sure it had Mw-50, then why add Spit9, loses the point of yak-9t and la5fn, and allied planset 6 is same as 7, would not then make more sence spit9 added first at planset 6, to make thouse 3 lanset more differant then now.

The mid-late sets are somewhat messy, yes. Might need to do those over.

My post was in terms of the historical technological time line and not a comparison of characteristics or weapons.  My understanding of the Finnish server is that the geography is certainly not historical, but that the aircraft technological time line is approximately historical in terms of when aircraft are introduced as progress is made through the different plane sets.  Otherwise we might just as well have all the aircraft all the time in one plane set from the get go.  However, perhaps I have misunderstood this and stand to be corrected.

I think its like on any other server, balance first with look of historical, for example why would p47 get 150 oct fuel so early and why p-51 or tempest dot show up before last 2 phases, or why planeset 1 dont have 109Fs or planeset 3 dont have 190a3 , 262 only so late and so on... if its historical planset purly plansts make no sence. It loks aim is to make differant plansets scenarious with balance betwen sides. If you make purly historical planset server , no one would be playing on it, there neds to be middle ground that makes players from both sides play on it.

Funny, I thought folks were always saying no balance, not about balance, certainly not balance first, lol.  I thought it was about historical aircraft technological time line 'what if' match ups, with a little bit of discretionary balance from the server admin.  A well...

Im sure out of 100s servers online there is few with historical airplanes for mission that runs on it, or even historical maps and ground units for day that mission depicts on server and many h are spend to build and reserch that, and im sure no one exept admin, mission maker and their few frends play on that servers... general public in last few years shows they dont wont full histrical, they wont picture of historical with balanced sides. It is what it is... you could get fully historical ww2 set in some event or coop but not on 24/7 server that have players on it. And on top you cant have historical planset/ground set and unlimited slots per sides, numbers of units/pilots made historical battle what it is, not just units used.

I would like to have a separate penalty/bonus system for tanks on the stats site for two reasons:

- Tanks Finish Mission bugs, and it very often doesn't produce log entries with proper end coordinates -> We can't be sure where tank mission was ended, i.e. did the tank player drive back home.

- It takes a hell of a lot more time to drive back home in a tank than to fly back home.

 

@=FEW=Revolves Any idea how to implement this?

Sure I'll separate the bonuses/penalties for tanks. Should be done in like ~6 hours (when I get the time, it's a 30 min change) and I'll publish a new bundle version then.

 

The relevant places to change are "update_bonus_score" in src/mod_rating_by_type/stats_whore.py, and one needs to add new mod_tank_XXXXXX variables in src/mod_rating_by_type/score.csv (while making sure the variable name length is less than 24 characters otherwise it won't work)

To ease the merge: The only template I changed was the src/stats/tankman_sortie.html. Otherwise a bunch of changes in mod_rating_by_type and mod_stats_by_aircraft .py/.csv files files.

Please review the stats points amounts planes are worth.  Before any post-sortie bonuses or penalties, I'm getting 70 points for BOTH Bf-110 G2s and Hs129s.   That's not what the info panel on the site says.

I'm getting the impression that quite a few pilots may be getting low-balled on their true total points. 

 

Also, how the hell is the 110 G2 worth less than or the same as Yak9?   

Even if you went by (real world) construction cost in materials, the 110 is going to cost alot more.  If you go by ground destructive power, the 110 is worth alot more.  If you go by the in-game Fokker Dr.1 with Bf110 skin flight modeling, it's worth alot more.  Hell, if you even go by guns and ammo load and leave out the rest of the plane, that's still worth more.

Info panel on the site is for the values for the campaign app. Values are like that so that we wouldn't discourage ground pounders.

Stats site then has it's own values for sorties shown in stats.

 

An update:

From next mission rotation, there will be a Repair/Rearm/Refuel vehicle on the temporary airfields next to the tank spawn. It will repair, rearm, and refuel tanks, AA vehicles, and airplanes within 1000 m. When destroyed, the RRR vehicle will itself be repaired after two minutes.

As for Me-262 - top one for K/D ratio 3.73

next one is now new Spitfire XIV - 2.36

all others below 1.93....

No counter part in air for Me-262 but hey, let blue have it...

No counter part on ground for Tiger, Ferdinand and Panther, let blue have it....

but where there is for a limited time GAZ only on red side, let blue have it as well 😄

lucky red's don't need to wait for C-47 to paradrop 😄

That's ok.   If Red doesn't abandon the map - and can withstand the planeset #9 Blue wave - we'll have it won when planeset #1 through #4 comes back around.

Only at temporary airfields?  What about normal tank spawns?

Those can be added too. In those, I would actually not have them respawn after they are destroyed, and have them count towards frontline movement.

In that case, will you have more than one?

 

 

At this point, we're just constantly re-spawning anyway, giving the same effect, but it's a hassle

Yes. IIRC, there are four "tank position" objects in the tank spawn group. One for each type of "R" perhaps (Repair, Rearm, Refuel, and Reheal)? :)
The service radius also needs to be shorter than on the temporary fields, maybe something like 500 m.

New version of campaign app running on both servers.

There will now be only one sector that has player tanks. When generating a mission, the campaign app checks if a sector has a town in a suitable location for a CP, and if such a sector is found, the tank spawns (three) are placed in that sector. So in short: the campaign app wants to give tank players towns to fight for.

yesterday the missions time ended while my tank was operational and crew was healthy, tank was only slightly dmaged by a single hit which sustained a hour before the missions end. In the missions log the tank is counted as destroyed.

 

Would it be possible to change it, so if the missions time ends the tank isnt automatically counted as destroyed?

 

The reson behind that, is that the battle for cps usually intesifies just before the missions end , so there is no time to drive back for which usually u need quite a long time anyway as this are not planes.

That is very misleading if you show only one piece from a whole set.

 

So Me-262 should be very limited but no mention that the next 3 planes belong to allied side?
Does that mean that till planeset 9 (so quite brief period of time of a rotation) and limited availability of Me-262 allies has totally OP planes - with no limits whatsoever and avaialable for half of a planeset rotation?

 

Next piece of a information we also have is time flight and kill per hour.
Me-262 was flown for 1h15m and achieved 1.44k/h - meaning that the beast had scored 2 air victories.

The worst out of those 3 allies planes mentioned above is La5FN.
K/d only(!) 1.91 - which is still bigger than any other german plane than 262.
But it K/h is whooping 2.25 and it has been flown for 40hours in this rotation.
So it's 90 planes down in total.

 

But sure Me-262 has the biggest impact on battle flow.

Thats 1day and 15h and 0min of flying that airplane. its day/h/min.

Also by clicking on airplane you can see in detail more stats and how many airplanes it shoot down and so on...56 in this case.

http://stats.virtualpilots.fi:8000/en/aircraft/1321/NO_FILTER/?tour=41

and check its killboard also...

 

But yes like with any stats detail mather, and time he are flown also, there is reason why 262 time in air is so limited, if its unlimited it would be out of charts in it stats, unlike other airplanes that are close to each other. I belive one tour they should realy try unlimiting every airplane and mod and see what hapends as ppl will just keep belive 262 is no problem and axis are nerfed by its limits for no good reason.

 

P.S.

 

also considering it only shows up in last planset, only 2 other airplanes that show up in last planset are 11lbs Tempest and 150oct 51, and when you look at them only also you see unlimited Tempest have 5day18h flying time, and crapy .50 p51 has 1day 12h time, so limited 262 is still flown good amount of time with his 1day 15h, thats only 5 times less then 11lbs Tempest, that is basicly only good late war airplane on allied side because of "fix" of .50 cal. while you get 109K41.98 30mm, D9 and 262 on axis in late set.

You forgot to add time when plane is upgraded and carries bombs. After the drop it does not lose performance :)

Wouldn't hurt to see - honestly (at least for pilots and not tankers) that will modify availability of 1 plane only - Me-262.

I have mentioned before that maybe we could get a limit for every plane coming to pool for its first planeset.

After all when e.g. Tempest (and every other plane) was available to allied/axis pilots - it also didn't came in spades. Couple of sqadrons first etc.

That way it stays the same for Me-262 as it is right now, but at the same time axis would not fight swarms of Tempest in planeset 8 - that priciple would go other way around too.

its 1 day extra, and from what i see its K/D is 0.7 and K/h 1.0 then ,  so it does hurt its performance

yes only 262 is limited, if it gets unlimited i would like to see what would happend, as i belive there is ppl who are of total oposite opinion then me and think there is no reson for it to be limited, my opinion is it should not even be alowed in 24/7 servers, same for upcoming ar 234. 

 

Limiting other airplanes based on historical stuff makes 0 sense to me if you on other hand dont limit amount of slots per side to be historical. Allieds had mutch more airplanes in air at that time then axis, but in game you can have unlimited slots. So just equipment limit based on historical excuses dosent make historical enviroment, it just benefits side that gambled out of desparation on small number high tech or prototype airplanes vs side that said we have planty of good enought airplanes to owerwhelm enemy so no need to send in our prototypes or best performers in bigger numbers.

logic behined 262 limit is because its by far better perfoming airplanein game, not because any historical numbers, if its by history it would be in same amount as 109k4 or d9 and it would be in planset in 7 insted 9.

If in ww2 axis had eaqual number of pilots, equipment, fuel, recorces as allieds had (what you have on online servers in game) , allieds would have to send p-80, p-51H, p-47N, P-63... insted what it had. 

 

 

examle of broken logic i usely see:

-ppl will say to limit 23mm as historicly 23mm on lagg-3 needs to be limited because it was used in ww2 in low numbers, they had to have them for il-2s

- so in game server will limit it based on historical stuff.

- but slots or resorces per side are unlimited, not historical.

- so if game makes history where vvs have same number or less pilots then axis, and both side have unlimited or equal resorces, how is true that 23mm gun is not produced in good number to be fit on all lagg-3 ? both cant be true ,

-situation server creates then makes no sence, historicly 23mm gun would not be in limited supply if vvs had unlimited supply or small number of airplanes to fit with 23mm gun when they had to have only same number of airplanes as axis and no more.

 

or why would soviets go to make t-34 if they just had to make smaller number of high tech tanks, if they had to face axis tanks on eaqual numbers or recorces, historicly they would not make t-34 if situation was like that where you dont have number advantage in making less quality tank to counter small number of high quality tanks.

Yes the 262 has the best K/D. K/D has no timeframe.

K/D has a psychological effect, especially in a computer game. It's clearly visible here. 

In a real war with limited amount of pilots, K/D tells something different than in a game. In WWII it showed how desperate the 3rd Reich was and how limited the amount of pilots was. In a game with unlimited pilots, K/D doesn't tell about the impact on the game. Kill per hour does. And here the 262 is good, but not on the top. The Tempest's impact is higher for example, or the Spitfire IX.

Thats 1day and 15h and 0min of flying that airplane. its day/h/min.

Also by clicking on airplane you can see in detail more stats and how many airplanes it shoot down and so on...56 in this case.

http://stats.virtualpilots.fi:8000/en/aircraft/1321/NO_FILTER/?tour=41

and check its killboard also...

 

But yes like with any stats detail mather, and time he are flown also, there is reason why 262 time in air is so limited, if its unlimited it would be out of charts in it stats, unlike other airplanes that are close to each other. I belive one tour they should realy try unlimiting every airplane and mod and see what hapends as ppl will just keep belive 262 is no problem and axis are nerfed by its limits for no good reason.

 

P.S.

 

also considering it only shows up in last planset, only 2 other airplanes that show up in last planset are 11lbs Tempest and 150oct 51, and when you look at them only also you see unlimited Tempest have 5day18h flying time, and crapy .50 p51 has 1day 12h time, so limited 262 is still flown good amount of time with his 1day 15h, thats only 5 times less then 11lbs Tempest, that is basicly only good late war airplane on allied side because of "fix" of .50 cal. while you get 109K41.98 30mm, D9 and 262 on axis in late set.

Did anyone request unlimited amount of 262s?

 

As you mention it. The P51/150octane with less flighttime had a Kill/hour of 1.5, while the 262 had 1.44. Both shot down 56 aircraft, and the 262 needed more time to achieve this. So the aircraft with the often criticized marshmellow shooting .50cal was more useful. Hm...

 

Tempest V./11lbs:

Flighttime of 5 days 18 hours vs. 1 day 15 hours on the 262. You say only 5 times less? That's huge, and considering that the Tempest and P51 are also available in the 8th plane set the available playtime for the 262 is even more restricted.

The Tempest has a Kill/hour of 2.77 and shot down 384 aircraft.

So which of these aircraft had a greater impact on the gameplay on the server during the 9th plane set?

 

Just to make myself clear, as many people have the need to read between lines, where there is no intended information between them:

I don't want the Tempest V or 150oct/P51D limited or any other plane. I just think that the limitation of the 262 is too strict and should be adjusted, but I'm not suggesting unrestricted amount of 262s as people would get tears in their eyes seeing this.

 

Well, as the admins totally avoid to participate in this discussion, nothing will change in this regard.
