Jasta 5 FC Flugpark - March 29th Patch

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year everyone!

We're kicking 2019 off in style with a revamp of our Flugpark.

 

Change list

- Both sides get new non moving vehicle dummy target ranges in the backfield.  IFFs changed to neutral.

- Aerial drone and vehicle dummy range locations moved into the backfield.   IFFs changed to neutral.

- Patrol airstarts moved and added to encourage centralized combat and allow bouncing of enemy pilots attacking rookies in the backfield.

- Defenses added to the airfields to discourage attacks on traffic in the pattern or on the field.

- Aerial patrol zones against AI fighters moved to not encroach on either PvP or rookie target ranges.

- Ship bombing targets moved to encourage centralized PvP combat

- AAA defenses added over the center to assist with spotting enemy aircraft.

- Camel, U-2, and Pfalz D IIIa now available at the airfields as appropriate.

- Central Tank Hangar moved to prevent tank being flooded on spawn in.

- New photo recon mission added in the center for PvP.  Utilizes the new U-2 biplane.  Entente only for the time being.  This mission does NOT use the ROF style Photo Recon script (not yet revamped for FC) , but requires multiple straight and level passes.  Optimal altitude to minimize passes is 2100m, but you can run it between 1400m and 2800m.

 

Have fun and feel free to report any bugs or issues in this thread.

Salute,

Matthias

No, our FC server is open to the public.

It's not totally new, but currently it's 100% dedicated to FCs on weekdays and then we bring it down for part of the weekend to run ROF.  Unintentional benefit of this schedule -  we're not competing with JG1 for traffic.

Ah, okay, thx Matthias! I flew RoF a long time, but then the player numbers went down more and more.
Must check it out next weekend. 

 

I hope you'll build something like "Bloody April" for FC, when it is out.

S! Matthias

For some reason the altitude throttle doesn't seem to be working on the server. I confirmed that it's working in SP and I also made sure that I had, in fact, selected the F model.

altitude throttle fixed.  It doesn't work when the server is set to help newer pilots prevent overreving.  Sorry newer pilots.  Welcome to full engine management!

Hi guys, for some reason I can't see the server Jasta 5 Flugpark at the multiplayer list, but right now there are two causal players (non Jasta members) playing there according to barans.ru. I've notice this in the last couple days - the server populated with two, three casual players but not showing in-game. I try to join in, but there is no server to join to.

 

Is it a bug? The server is really offline, or for some reason it isn't showing on my screen?

There was some sort of update a few nights ago. Maybe that's got to do with it? 

 

Not sure. I also checked mods on and nothing. But there were a couple players playing there today.

 For the next few weeks, the J5 server will be  running a practice mission for Bloody April in ROF.  For some reason, the server is still showing up on the IL-2 online web page. Sorry for the confusion.

 

  The server will still be available for FC on Sundays AFAIK.

 Looks like it didn't shut down properly last time, so the script on the barans site can still log into it. I'm sure rebooting the machine will clear it.

Just a quick note that there have been conversations prior to Bloody April campaign putting plans in the works to improve the pilot experience on the Jasta 5 server consistent with some of the recommendations being posted by pilots once we have the Arras map available.    The exception to this is that we hope to adjust the mission rollover timing shortly.

Hey everyone,

Ealier this week map length timers were been rolled back to previous state (pre March) which allows for longer missions  1 hour -> 2 hours

Also, the server is getting some maintenance patching this morning but will be back up shortly.

Greetings, I just acquired FC yesterday as a Father's Day gift and was pleasantly surprised to see this very active server when I briefly jumped on MP to see what kind of WW1 action was available.  Very cool server you have here, only had enough time for one flight but looking forward to flying with you all again!

Flew on the server last night, and did notice that the bombs were more or less useless. 

I droppede 3 x 50 kg direct on a hangar. Nothing happen. Same with buildings.

We finally did manage to destroy the allied ship, but it didn't sink. 

Is this a mission thing, or a general issue with the WWI bombs?

Loke, change the bomb fuse to contact for example. That worked for me when I was testing 2-seaters in the QMB

What puzzle me, is that those that hit the hangar, they did detonate. They were btw set to 5 sec.

When I was flying with Trupobaw the other night he found out that apparently there is a need to manually arm the bomb before dropping, despite having the fuse timers set.

Not true Bidu, I've read the forums and experimented a bit - you need to set fuses to 5 seconds or more if you want to drop them from treetop level, otherwise they have no time to arm. Some pansy WW2 safety to make sure plane gets away from explosion that crept into FC; makes bombing moving targets much harder . Needless to say, I like ROF bombs better :).

I think 30m is minimal altitude to drop bombs set to contact.

In other news, I took Halberstadt to Flugpark yesterday and my AI gunner scored couple victories. Phyrric victories, but once S.E.5.a pilots savages your engine from behind, it's nice to hear "Ziel zerstort" and see him go down first. Gunners are much less useless (perhaps even useful) in this game.

Yadda yadda just read what he said himself above, I got it all wrong. :dash:

Indeed the gunners look so awesome compared to ROF! A few days ago I was trying the Bristol myself and fighting Hellbender and Darling in their Halberstadt (guess who won? modesty prevents me from lying, and facts from saying the truth). I looked back and questioned my sexuality for a second.

 

Which brings me to my current request for the developers:


 

Spoiler

 

Can we have an option to replace the standard gunner with Bianca?
