Please specify which planes. Alos: was it winter?

 

Yep we followed them way past the target and the rest of the group was in a huge melee over the target airfield, so we turned to help. I think this is the first time we have used your Gen since the last game update.  There's always some screw gets loose when we use something after a new patch

yes, I tested couple of things. All I know for certain is that wp2 does get triggered. I posted this bug in the beta testing forum.

Snow is already there. Select December-Feb as month for maps that support snow (Moscow, Stalingrad, Rhineland). Or do you mean snow falling?

Vander my unit just flew a Bomber Escort and the Bombers never turned after WP 2 Im not sure if its a bug or not but thought you should know

Hi,

 

i got a similar problem with enemy AI Bombers in my missions witch worked fine before the last patch.
Before the Patch they dropped the bombs where they should, now they flight straight on after reaching the last way point before the "command: attack area" (attack ground).

 

For testing i changed the "attack area" into "command: attack" that causes the Bombers to cycle endless at the last way point before the command attack.
Tested it also in a quick'n dirty new mission, same behavior (tested with  B25 and A20).

Thanks for confirming this!

Great cause I really enjoy your app and look forward to seeing snow....lol

 

It's good you mentioned the snow. Indeed, it could rain but never snow! I fixed this and made the choice explicit by adding a tickbox. During winter it will snow, else rain. The intensity is random, but not varying too wildly. Be aware: will only work with overcast clouds.

You're welcome,  looks like a game bug since 4.002 , so I postet a bug report  in "Autopilot and AI" - bug report topic .

Btw.
Thank you very much for your great App.

It's very, very handy. Especially for mission maker beginner/noobs like me.

Vander,  it seems to be working now, and I can't pass up the mission if it works 😄  so, if it happens again I will record the specifics.  This makes the game for me Vander!  Your work is really awesome!!  Thank you!

The level bombing now seems to be bugged in IL2 4.002. If you select "Attack" as scenario you should be good.

Do you have any plans to add an update feature to the app itself, so it can be updated without having to download the latest version every time?

 

I`ve no idea how much work this would be, just wondered if it had crossed your mind at all?

Thanks for reporting this bug! I made a mistake that causes this if you do not select AI flights. I will create a hotfix for this

Yes, that would be very nice considering the amount of updates. I'll see what is possible.

I have created a new version to fix some bugs:

 

Release Notes v24b
-Fixed a bug where the generator would fail if you did not select the "Additional AI flights" option
-Fixed a bug in weather configuration: It would never snow
-Added option to manually select weather/snow (only works when overcast)

 

Download is here: https://sites.google.com/view/il2-great-battles-emg/

 

Note that there is a bug in the current IL2 build that prevents bombers from level bombing. Please use "Attack" scenario instead for now.

I did integrate tank platoons into the app and created a first template for Prokhorovka map. But now I committed myself to create this mini campaign for FC, so hopefully can pick this up again during christmas holiday. But to be honest, the main reason for slow progress is that my heart isn’t into it (yet) and then it’s difficult to justify all the hours I need to spend to make this work (tank crew that is).

Well what you've done so far is amazing.  You deserve a break, so take it.  And when you do return, slow down a bit.  We're big boys and know the value of waiting for good things, or at least most of us are.  All quality things take a while to get done right.  Plus you have been super in getting things that are broke fixed and giving us more and more diversity in mission making.  The wait is always well worth it. 

In the meantime you've given us a very, very powerful tool for making missions that doesn't drive ya' nuts.

THANK YOU , take care, and Happy Holidays.

 If we can have something when TC will be offically released, it's will be so cool ! Happy holidays 👍

Just a quick question. 
Would there be an opportunity to change the aerodromes for both camps to vary a little?

If you select a different “front” than the airfields (may) change. And then there is the option to select the distance to the front (3  airfields).

The newest version works miracles too !

Being able to easily create coop missions for 16 (and more) planes to join in from both allies as well as the axis side is an incredible feat.

In the DCS ME it takes me a great deal of time and effort to achieve such a thing and thanks to SYN_Vander s program it is done in a heartbeat.

Maybe one suggestion (I realize may surely not be important for others) ...

I have created quite a lot of missions for many planes and time periods.

I like to adapt those missions from time to time, but there is no (re-)load option AFAIK, only mission save as ...

Would be very usefull (to me anyway)  as a mission overview list and/or update feature.

But again, many thanks SYN_Vander.

Ah yes, been thinking about that. I'm also a user and also get annoyed to have to redo settings :). I'll add it to the backlog (which is getting way too big :) )

Update is also on the list. First step will probably to get a notification that there is a new version...

Weird, because I have changed nothing! It's a bug in the game. But I do know, not all bombers behave the same regarding this bug. I hope the devs fix it soon.

Experimenting with Ju88 bombing not working i created an 'easy' mission, and tried to add some descriptive Trans icons i couldn't open the created mission (just downloaded the latest 24b ). To see what happens tried to open a creation it in the FMB, but could not edit or ungroup anything . . Probably an integrity error? Blue line i never saw before (posted about this elsewhere too).

 

PS there is no Blocks folder in my 4.002 LuaScripts-WorldObjects folder BTW, must be in some gtp file, but i coul not find it sofar.

Also not present in an older 4.001 IL2 backup installation.

I just generated a mission, loaded it in the editor and can edit it just fine. I'm not sure what you are trying to do, but the "no script file!" you are seeing is because of a bug in the game (I think it has been reported) as indeed this .txt file is missing in the gtp. In any case, it is a warning  and shouldn't be the cause why you can't edit anything.

 

The empty groups you see in the lower corner is because I delete all objects outside the mission area, which results in a number of empty groups within the cities group.

 

About the level bombing issue (if that is what you are testing): The devs are aware of it and are trying to fix it...
