KNIGHTS OF THE AIR Multiplayer Server

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow Virutal Pilots!

Maybe some of you already noticed, the KOTA is not online at the moment.

The reason is that our server got hacked by Sodinokibi Ransomware and its encrypted all of our files.
We could restore the TS-3 but for the IL-2 server, we are waiting for our server company support to fix this issue.

We are trying to fix it as fast as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.

Very sorry that this happened to you.  Good luck and I hope your problems are over soon.  Thank you for your server.

 

Happy landings,

Dear Fellow Pilots,

 

Sorry it took so long, but the KOTA is back now. :)

We had multiple difficulties about our hijacked server, but it's fine now. (keep your fingers crossed)

We're in the test phase right now (!), hopefully for the weekend everything will be same as before.

 

Right now there are 5 missions in the row (Battle of Hurtgen forest, Battle of Kerch peninsula, Disaster of Don, Operation Bodenplatte, Battle for red october).

Feel free to try out our missions, and any feedback would be highly appreciated.

 

Thank you for your patience,

HRAF Team

yeah, still testing, and had some difficulties... we might need to reinstall everything... (will see)

but it should be working right now.

i'd like to keep it that way for the weekend, and do a major update for the next week.

Thank you for your feedback.

yes its on now . looking forward to additional future campaigns and developments , how about some heavy cargo ships in the next missions please . 

 

Is there a way of seeing how much time is left in a mission without having to log into the mission ?

Well @-[HRAF]BubiHUN making the missions, and his planning some new interesting stuff, but you have to wait for it, he's really busy right now.

 

Actually that mission time thing is bothering me too. I'm working on it right now :), so the stat page will show the current mission and time left. Maybe a week, and you will see hopefully. :)

Hmm, okay we'll check it out, thank you.

PS: I manage to get the current mission and the mission start time on the stat page. Right now it's UTC time, but working on the local time. 🙄

i have been using this site for my daily references since many years . so i was thinking if you could use any basic time zone then any player from different continents and time zone can figure the rest out .

It's a bit more complicated than this, the game server, and the webserver (stat page), and the user local timezone is most of the time is different. I need to write some python code to synchronise. But I'll do it as soon as I have time for it. :)

yeah, it's because of the update... thanks for the heads up. The server will work in an hour or so, ... the stat stat page would be complicated, but i'll see as soon as the server is running again.

-----

 

The server is updated and running.

The stat page shows the current mission and start time incorrectly, I'm working on it. ;) (But probably not today sorry... ant the UTC time, I din't forget ;) )

And probably the new YAKs would do some error in the page too, so there would need some work on it as well.

 

Anyway maybe it's not the best time (I know we need to buy new planes 😄 ), but if anyone can support our server to keep it running (even with $1), would be highly appreciated. ;)

I have the YAK 1 B collector only , which are the ones you have added  since i doubt many players have already purchased the 2 new ones already . what happens to the mission if a player logs in and he does'nt have a particular plane ?

Then they use other planes. I don't think they are going to be making a mission with just Yak 9's available.

I know I know. :) Bubi is working right now for day an night and the mission files is still the same... he'll fix it as soon as he can. 

PS: I need to restart the server again, so the stat page is not synchronised yet... and probably there will be an update fix today, please let me know if it's available. ;)

Hurtgen Forest mission

 During the last 2-3 times i played this mission axis side always i noticed that i never  made contact with Allied planes over  2016 , 2118 , 2218 and Y46 airfield at any height and i noticed the absence of AAA when we get the alert that they are at any of these hot spots . So today i decided to verify closely and take off from Y46 and start at 2500 mt and work my way upwards when the alerts come on at 2218 and Y46 from where i took off and could easily get to 2218 in a minute . I can confirm even though there was an alert for 4 planes i saw nothing and there was no AAA tracer from these 2 target areas at different heights . Then 2-3 mn later the alert is for 7 bogey's over Y46 and still nothing appears or any AAA high over the base  . I then flew to Y52  airbase and gained altitude and waited for the B25 's which always appear . I have done a lot of mission building and i am wondering if the bogeys are entering the alert area and exiting too early before getting to the designated  point . Could recent patches disturb the set up ? Hope this info can be of some use .

Thank you for the "testing". :)

I'm trying to learn the mission builder since Bubi is not available. But it's a long process since I'm working a lot as well. 

For a starter I put the yak-9s to the Red October mission... baby steps. 😄

Bodenplatte  Hurtgen

 

In my opinion you need to look at the existing Timer , attack area and attack MCU's of these missions i mention above and maybe adjust the WP's a little , its only tweaking . you don't need to set objectives of how many are destroyed MCU's before breaking off and returning to base . You need to learn the set up for the Force complete MCU , this is very important because its the signal together with the Timer MCU to end their mission and go back . I learnt all that from JIM TM who is available on the forum  long ago when i bought my first copy of Stalingrad . I have'nt come across the Yak 9 's in Red October , because i dont have them yet , too early , but i have engaged the PE's , moving and static ships . Finally try the above missions i mention and see for yourself wether  what i state is correct , i am not seeing any comments from other players which does'nt  help us at all . We need constructive criticism and comments like we see in other IL2 server forums in this website .

Yeah it's a bit abandoned the server right now, and more feed back and player would be lovely. But I'm not complaining, we don't have much time right now to care about our server because of the every day problems. I could send you the .mission files when I get it, if you want to check it out. Any help would be great. :)

Every map (mission) has a lot of bombing targets. If you have any particular map request, I can arrange that. ;) 😄
