MP missions request for a server

Recommended Posts

Hi all im running a private server for my mates as we all use VR, I'm looking for COOP missions we can all play together, if you have any you would be willing to share we would certainly appreciate it. fighters, escorts, bombing were not fussed we just want to play COOP against the AI.

 

Cheers Stephen

You could check in with the Wing Walkers folks, who are running a COOP event this Tuesday. Maybe they have a spare mission that you could use. Join in the event if you can; they are a good group of guys.

Cheers

I'll package up some stuff for you through the week and you can take a look if you like. I mostly make Co-ops rather than single-player missions anyway. I've been building various training/practice missions for the squadron that are okay for 2-6 players but may be a little light on opposition for larger groups. I typically also make my maps so that you can fly for either side and with as full a plane set as I think fits.

Hi Silk, IF I can add myself as to have a pair of coop to share with EAF group I will be very glad to you. Normally we fly 5-8 guys as axis team would be nice to have some action engaging ground target bombing from each side and some escort flights both side (red/blue) if you can. We will give you credits about this. tell me if posible and I'll give my e-mail in private too. cheers.

Hi SCU_Server, the majority of COOP missions we're running are made by Coconut, modified as needed.  I think that you might be able to pick them up here somewhere, if not I'll ask Geezer to send you a PM.

 

Cheers

@EAF_51+FOX - I am happy to link what I have. I don't do much in the way of escort missions, but I do have one that I could probably include that was part of our squadron Stalingrad campaign recently. I'll have to remove a squadron in-house joke from it first, but it should work for Luftwaffe at least. as for the other stuff, see if my BoM practice map will do. I'm in the process of producing a version of it with access to more aircraft, but it includes air intercept versus flights of 2 or 4 random fighters, bomber intercept, ground attack intercept and bombing/gunnery/rocketry ranges - all for both factions.

 

@SCU_SERVER - I'll package up a bunch of missions for you later in the week. I think it's probably easier for me if I just produce the one package to try and cover both your needs then you can pick and choose what you like. I'll try and include a read-me in notepad with a brief description of what each mission is.

 

 

EDIT:

I can only take credit for the assembly part of these missions/maps by the way. All the hard work was done by other people creating fantastic plug-n-play groups. I think of it rather like building an Airfix model where someone else produces the parts and i just assemble them and apply a lick of paint. Most credit should go to my squadron mate Prangster for his inspiration and his ready-made groups and to Coconut and JimTM here on the 1C forums for the spawner and randomiser tech that I incorporated into my later groups.

Haven't read all the post, go in to our OKL VS AI server and then take the mission from your dogfight folder.

 

You can change coalitions if you fly VVS in FMB, it's a heavy one but it runs superbly on i3 7350K

Thank you very much for your contribution and help Silk, we at EAF will credit all people mentioned by you whith you too: Prangster, Coconut and JimTM surely. About which kind of mission you will provide us, don't worry about what target , we surely will enjoy every kind of coop mission you think will be good for little team like we are. Thank again for your attention. Ps. tell me if you need my private e-mail or if you will post the stuff here in this topic (?) with a link to download. Cheers.

Actually, credit goes to Coconut for the randomizer idea; I just presented my take on it for the manual. Cheers!

Salutations,

 

I can confirm that going to the OKL VS AI server and obtaining their mission... provides a working server multiplay coop mission. Thanks. :salute:

Here are all 3 missions with the same logic but different season and positions, I ve included the *.mission but when you host delete it and leave only the *.msnbin one, because server and client loads 4-5 times faster without the *.mission one.

 

Thanks Volker, I have grab the files from your Drpbox and will put them up on our server, BTW the zip didn't seem to have any MISSION files in just the the MSNBIN files, also many thanks to everyone else who has sent us missions.

 

Cheers Stephen

You can generate the .mission files for yourself by opening the .msnbin file in the Mission Editor (you will have to navigate to the correct folder and start typing in the mission name for the files to appear) and then saving it again. Also you don't need or want the .mission file to be present when serving the mission on a DServer as it will massively slow down loading times.

Do not use mission file to host your game, delete it. The server use the msnbin instead of the mission file, which is better for the ressource. It takes less time to load the mission, and to upload the mission to all the clients.

Hi Volker,

 

We are have a fantastic amount of fun with your missions they have been on our server for a week and we are playing them COOP most nights in VR, do you have any versions playing from the Russian side at all.

 

Kind Regards Stephen

I try to make time and switch the planes, unfortunately I can't tell you when right now :(

 

I am trying to make this too:

Which is a pain in the arse (but no more pain than a wife and daughters)

 

Hi Volker

 

Im having a go at changing the planes in your missions myself, hope you dont mind ??, hopefully its a simple as changing a plane from a Russian to German plane and vise versa :)

 

Cheers Stephen

You may also need to configure the triggers that start any events such as unit activation. It all depends on how things were set up.

Of course I don't mind! The missions don't come with any rights, feel free to change or improve whatever you want, good ideas are always welcomed.

 

That's right TP_Silk, whatever sensor for a coalition must go the other way around. E.G. an airfield defense starter must sense for axis and not allies.
