Naming FLIGHTS in a coop Mission

Recommended Posts

This may (or may not) be common knowledge, but took me a few to figure it out and might help someone.

 

To have planes in the same FLIGHT, they have to have the exact same name, (case sensitive),  and be of the exact same type, and of course, the cooperative check box has to be checked in the plane properties.

if you put 4 planes on the map to be available, and they are all the same plane type, and you call them ALL German Red.

In the plane selection window of the game, it will show up as German Flight, and planes available will be 1: click to occupy red, 2: click to occupy red etc

if you put 4 planes on the map to be available, and they are all the same plane type, and you call them ALL German South Red.

In the plane selection window of the game it will show up as German South Flight, and all the planes will be 1: click to occupy red, 2: click to occupy red etc

There is no reason to use more than three words to name planes. The only ones used are the first 2 (if there are 3 words) to name the flight, and the last word (if there are 2 or more words used to name the plane) to fill in the "click to occupy xxxxx"

If all you use to name the planes in a flight is German, then in the plane selection window the flight will be called German flight, and it will say 1: click to occupy 1, click to occupy 2 etc

If you place 4 planes down, and call them all German South Red, but 2 planes are 109f4, and 2 planes are 109g2, you will end up with 2 flights. Both will be called German South, and both will say 1: click to occupy red.

If you want to make a flight with a leader and wingmen, you place the planes on the map and link them as usual, but you can only use ONE word to describe the wingmen, and the Lead has to be called xxxxx leader. If you name the lead russian red leader, and the wing russian red, then you will end up with 2 flights The lead will be in the first flight (called Russian Red Leader), and the wing be in a flight by himself called Russian Red. 

To make this work, you name the lead Russian_red Leader, and the wing Russian_red. You end up with a flight called Russian_Red, and the first plane is 1: click to occupy Leader.

If you put a plane on the map with coop start checked, and leave it named "plane", and place another plane of the same type way on the other side of the map and leave it named "plane", you will end up with both planes in the same flight.
