Finnish VirtualPilots - Dynamic War

Situation may have been that some block in the depot was destroyed way earlier than the remaining ones so when the block got repaired the depot opened.

 

Temuri described a classic case which we call "looping". For example, an airfield(or depot) was attacked 30min ago by someone, and then you attack and close it, but then it opens almost immediately, because the first objects were destroyed so long ago.

 

The "<field" command helps you determine if a objective is "looped".

 

EDIT:

Or check the statistics "Current mission information" page, which is updated every minute (doesn't auto refresh, so hit F5 when you need the info). Hover mouse cursor over objective names to get more info.
http://ts3.virtualpilots.fi:8000/en/faq/

The mission planner now also tells the same info when you hover the mouse cursor over objectives. But note that it doesn't update unless you close and open the page again with the link (F5 won't work in this case).

Really really enjoy this server. Reminds me of Blue Flag from another flight simulator. 

+1 on respawn times being a bit too short.  

Thanks! For the respawn time: like Porky said earlier, take out depots first.

I have a big request.

Could you please make increase the distance between airfields?

If they are placed to close to one another the play tends to get very arcadish.

 

Example: Dugino vs Sychevka. Distance is 16,5km or 2 min of flighttime?

Attacking the tankbase becomes irrelevant before the oppositions airfield are either suppresed or destroyed. 

Basically a war of attrition depending on who have most aircrafts in the hanger. AKA no tactics, just speed and brute force.

Airfield selection to a mission goes the same way as selecting depots. Closest ones get selected. So if two tank bases are relatively close to each other, it can lead to two airfields being close to each other in a mission. But as tank base selection is random, so is the occurence of airfields being close to each other :)

For some reason no replay of the server works anymore for me. I cant load them I just get a black screen. Other servers like WoL work fine. anybody an idea?

3.0 bug.

 

The replay seems to use the mission on which it way recorded. 

I have no problem using replay from EAFs own server as the mission file is almost static, but on Finish an Berlga i am unable.

So, when will the new tour begin folks?

When the map is complete I assume?

 

Also, the planeset does not seem to have advanced in two weeks now. Are stuck in some terrible BoM/BoS limbo? :)

Hey, how come there isn't any P-40s in the new planeset? Kinda disappointing considering we're fighting in Moscow. Hopefully you guys can add it.

The planeset advances each week, supposedly in the name of historical correctness despite always fighting over Moscow. :salute:

P-40 should be available all the way through unless something has changed.

Should a lone IL-2 really be flipping tank battles by itself? :huh:

I for one am going to say:

If they are willing to put in five hours and 14 sorties and a mix of IL2s and Pe2s, take out the nearest depot/factory and all, then yes. Absolutely. Well done and well deserved.

 

Which I happen to know is exactly what the person you are referring to has done :P

Yes, very much possible to do it. I've tested it with both sides to be possible. Though, I personally would use Pe-2 first with bombs. Then come with IL-2 to finish the tanks.

And then what can the Germans do?

It seems there's little wonder why VVS always win.

With 110E + Stuka. Or 110G2 + Bk3,7.

 

Just curious, have you been able to destroy tank bases alone with this setup? Flak over tank bases seems to be way better than over depots.

Yes. First lob in big bombs from 2+km vertical dive, usually get 2 (even 4 if lucky) flaks down. Then spiral attack the rest. Then proceed to kill howitsers + rocket launchers. Then the AT guns, then RTB and go get the tank killer.

I've been meaning to make a video out of it for a long time, but just haven't got around to actually doing it. Time... just don't seem to have it. Barely got time to fly couple of nights in a week.

Had a very quick blast last night, took a 190 a3 but no modifications were available ? I was able to change the paint though, but no mods.

Is this a bug or have wing guns been disabled ?

Bug that came with v.3 update. Unselect the plane (click the map) and then select the airfield and plane again. Now you should have the mods selectable.

I did think I tried that, usually when that happens you can't pick a paint scheme either, but i could choose the paint last night. I might be mistaken though. I'll try again later

I can confirm that - it works nearly always, but some servers might have locked some modifications though.

Having issues login into the expert server likeI've never had before.

I'm getting a black screen and no loading screen....

3.001 issue, not the server. The way I understood it the devs broke some software bit that reduced the size of the missions files by a massive margin. So now you are forced to download huge files each time there a server rolls over.

You will notice it to happen with every server that is running complex missions.

 

Give it some time. I know someone who had to wait a few minutes at a time.

Are the tours going to be 30 days again from now on or will you set it to three months?

Three months. I accidentally set the our to update too early. That's why there was the short March tour.

Cheers, thanks for clearing that up.

I derive unnecessary joy in keeping a career alive so I was a bit bummed that it was going to be over in 20 days no matter what.

Sick leave and holiday at the cottage over. :(

 

I updated the rolling planeset to include rest of the Kuban planes, so now (planeset 6) there should be A-20, Yak-7, and P-39 available for the Russian side.

People have also been asking for the planes list per set. Here it is in glorious JSON format. Note that "Current planeset" = Index + 1:

Actually,  you have added those planes in rotation 5.    Rotations 6 & 7 add the La5FN as well.

No.  Like I said above, note that "Current planeset" = Index + 1. So "index 5" is planeset 6 :)

So, I suppose this is how it looks now (with the disclaimer that I may have missed something):

I'm fine with the changes, except I still don't see the point in limiting old planes in the later weeks (especially planes such as the P-40 and 109 E-7), and I pity those that like the 190 A-5, since they now only have the last week with it (why?).

You're right about the A-5. I'll add it to the penultimate set.

I have another request :-)

 

Would it be possible to add the A-20 to repair and supply planes?

 

I ask becourse I drop in at odd times do a single sortie.

With all the changes toward team-play, this has limit me to run supply and repair runs. A task which I become fond of. But I would also like to get some time in to getting to know the A-20 ;)
