Hi folks,

maybe you can point a blind dog to where in the editor I can find the NDB object.

I am pretty sure it was an own object ,but I cant find it anymore 🙈.

 

Is there any configuration to be made at the NBD, when set on the map, to work with related aircrafts?

Thx .🙂

It's listed as a Vehicle. You need to place it on the map, set the coalition and then set the channel to '1' for it to work.

Notes:

- In order to modify the NDB, you must make it a linked entity.

- Beacon channel is sort of like an on-off switch. Both Russian and German should be set to 1 for on, 0 for off.

- There are ways to modify the beacon channel when other events fire off.

No, NDB channels are 1 is for Axis, channel 2 is for Allied.

You can set it to anything other than 0 and the beacon will be on. The NDB (and the radio beacon in the plane) knows which beacon to point at based on the country settings, not the channel settings.

 

Here's an example from Alozno's Combat Box mission "Battle for Kalinin". As you can see, both the German and Russian NDB's are set to 1.

I went ahead and threw up a test mission verifying that setting both German and Russian radio beacons to one is fine.

I agree with Sketch. At that time, it's on/off, and not a setting for any channel.

Hmmm. If we didn’t need the beacons for finding airfields, could we do something interesting with them for mission targets? Like waypointing? How do you turn them on or off?

In multiplayer, it really won't work well because the beacon turns on for the whole team, confusing the players as to which beacon is correct.

 

However, the NDB is a vehicle for a reason, and enabling, disabling, and spawning should work like any other vehicle. 😎

Except that the homing won't work if you spawn the NDB.

I stand corrected and just tested it to confirm. Spawned NDB does not work, but activating/deactivating an NDB does work. Which means, each NDB is a 'one-time-use'... If you deactivate the NDB sometime in your mission, you can not reactivate it. Thanks for the heads up @LLv34_Temuri!
