Tuttovola server - CLOD + DWT

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,
From today the Tuttovola server will be officially online!

Together with the Italwings group we are taking the first steps to try to recreate events similar to those held in BoS.
The road is still long but the goal is to be able to recreate the same exciting atmosphere.


For the moment there are two missions 24 hours a day (except for any test), for anyone who wants to train in dogfight. The style is that of Berloga by BoS:

Tobruk:

There are 4 spawn point at 2.500 meters (Axis east/Axis west; Allied east/Allied west).
By choosing the area you will fly over you can decide which plane to fight against!
Sollum bay area: AI -> Bf110/Beaufighter
Sidi Barrani area: AI -> Macchi 202/P-40

Army Red

Spawn points
Allied east (W5😞 Head 330° towards the burning village until a message tells you that two Macchis are on their way. Head to Sidi Barrani to face them.
Allied west (G3): Head 330° towards the burning vehicle until a message tells you that two Bf-110s are on their way. Head to Sollum bay to face them.


Army Blue

Spawn points
Axis east (S4): Fly over the burning village at your 2 o' clock until a message tells you that two Hurricans are on their way. Head to Sidi Barrani to face them.
Axis west (E5): Fly over the burning airfield at your 3 o' clock until a message tells you that two Beaufighters are on their way. Head to Sollum bay to face them.


 

Channel

You can find a lot of different battles around the map, so be sure to read your army briefing for more details.
RED AREA -> pure dogfight. BLUE AREA -> battle with bombers

RED WEST AREA: Battle of Britain dogfight, 1941 -> late version of Spitfire and Bf109
RED CENTRAL AREA: Battle of Britain dogfight, 1940 -> classical version of Spitfire and Bf109
RED EAST AREA: Battle of France dogfight, 1940 -> early version of Spitfire, D520 and Bf109
BLU SOUTH AREA: British blitz to Le Havre dock. -> Wellington and Spitfire VS Bf109 and Bf110


NOTE: In the next days more battles will be add.

Army Red
RED WEST AREA: fly over the group of 3 ships in front of you until you'll see the message "Bf 109 DOG41 are coming". Then meet them in the square formed by the ships on your right
RED CENTRAL AREA: fly over the group of 3 ships in front of you until you'll see the message "Bf 109 DOG40 are coming". Then meet them in the square formed by the ships your left
RED EAST AREA: fly over Loon Plage in front of you until you'll see the message "Bf 109 BOF are coming". Then meet them over Dunkerque on your right.
BLU CENTRAL AREA: as soon as you spawn you will see Hurricane in front of you. Follow them over the convoy and keep your eyes open!
BLU SOUTH AREA: as soon as you spawn you will see Spitfire and Wellington in front of you. You can choose if you want to escort british bombers or if you want to try to sink ships moored in the harbor.

 

Army Blue
RED WEST AREA: fly over the group of 3 ships in front of you until you'll see the message "Spitfires DOG41 are coming". Then meet them in the square formed by the ships on your left.
RED CENTRAL AREA: fly over the group of 3 ships in front of you until you'll see the message "Spitfires DOG40 are coming". Then meet them in the square formed by the ships your right.
RED EAST AREA: fly over Loon Plage in front of you until you'll see the message "Bf 109 BOF are coming". Then meet them over Dunkerque on your right.
BLU CENTRAL AREA: as soon as you spawn you will see Hurricane in front of you. Follow them over the convoy and keep your eyes open!
BLU SOUTH AREA: as soon as you spawn you will see Bf 110 in front of you. Follow them to intercept enemy bombers!

 

AI setting is: medium/veteran



For any trouble or advice on what to add leave a comment here.

 

Have fun and blue skies!

I tried this one last night, and it is really nice to have the in-air spawn points, sure saves time.  Unfortunately the 2nd time I spawned in I collided with my previous self. I tried getting around it 3 or times with no success (Axis spawn points) If went to the opposite spawn point I got in OK. If I got out of the server and back in I could spawn in OK... but if I crashed, which happened a lot because the JU-88 would immediately flip over and go into a flat spin...  I could not restart at the same spawn point. 

 

This will be a big help in sorting out controls and switches, very happy to have it.

Thank you @LarryLudwig for your report, I'm really wondering about how this is possible, I will do some test as soon as I'll have time and try to find a way to fix it... 

 

Happened just with Ju-88?

Update: 

-) improved AI behavior [close to veteran's skills]

-) improved management of AI spawns [ever 5 minutes a new couple will join the battle]
-) AI always fly in pairs (so watch your six!)

-) updated maps: the dogfight will mainly take place in the white area

-) Channel map: from now it is also possible to meet Bf-110 and Beaufighters,

No, what ever plane I spawned in... and crashed/exit whatever... when I came back in I would see the same plane for a split second before the explosion.  The JU88 was the only one that I remember having the spin problem... but again... when you crashed and spawned back in BOOM!  I went to the other German spawn point and it worked (same thing though) it would spin the Ju-88 and then crash when you respawned.

BIG NEWS:
New AI spawn system. 

Since the previous idea of starting the AI every 5 minutes caused some problems (sometimes they all came together, other times they didn't arrive at all), I decided to change the spawn method:
this time it will be up to the player to decide when and which AI to spawn.
Just fly in the areas delimited by the smoke (dark to start the Axis AI, light to start the Allied AI) and head to the nearest city.

In this way no more empty server!
Let me know if you like this setting and if everything works fine!

"Tobruk:

There are 4 spawn point at 4.000 meters (Axis north/Axis south; Allied north/Allied south). By choosing the area you will fly over you can decide which plane to fight against!

Army Red
Spawn points
Allied north (H7): Head 330° towards the dark smokes until a message tells you that two Macchis are on their way. Head to Bardia to face them.
Allied south (I3): Head 330° towards the dark smokes until a message tells you that two Bf-110s are on their way. Head to Sollum to face them.


Army Blue

Spawn points
Axis north (E10): Head 140° towards the light smokes until a message tells you that two Hurricans are on their way. Head to Bardia to face them.
Axis south (G5): Head 140° towards the light smokes until a message tells you that two Beaufighters are on their way. Head to Sollum to face them."

Yesterday happened also to me: whatever aircraft I chose as soon as I spawned I had no elevators control -> spin -> stall -> crash

 

I will do some further investigation, in any case seems that if you change side and than come back it works normal...

Update: 

Axis south trigger to spawn British Beaufighters doesn't seems to work sometime. If you are sure to be inside the light smokes and you see no message, consider the possibility to leave the aircraft and spawn from Axis North.

Working to solve the problem.

OK, I tried the Tobruk Map....    airstart in the North worked... heading North,  turned to 140° and server message said Hurricanes reset....   they mid-aired....  then it said Machi 202s coming.... so I shot one of them down just for the heck of it. I spawned from the South point and turned to 140° and headed towards the smoke... and the server message came up  Beaufighters reset... they mid-aired...  could see the pieces tumbling down. Then it said Bf-110s coming...   then  "Nope....it's too early for Bf-110s...    then there were two Beaufighters, so I turned into them and hurt one... and here comes a Bf-110 at Mach 2 and he lit him up too.  So we went around a bit and another Bf-110 came in and there were 3 of them buzzing all over the Beaufighters so I stayed out of the way and watched. Both Beaufighters went down.  I saw two dots behind me and turned around.. heading back to the NW and I caught up enough to see that they were both Bf-110s heading back NW.  Then server message came up that the server was resetting.

The duration of the Tobruk map was only one hour, I decided to take it to two.

 

 

 

Update:
On Tobruk I moved spawn points, now they are at 2.500 meters (Axis east/Axis west; Allied east/Allied west).
Sollum bay area: AI -> Bf110/Beaufighter
Sidi Barrani area: AI -> Macchi 202/P-40

Army Red

Spawn points
Allied east (W5):Head 330° towards the burning village until a message tells you that two Macchis are on their way. Head to Sidi Barrani to face them.
Allied west (G3): Head 330° towards the burning vehicle until a message tells you that two Bf-110s are on their way. Head to Sollum bay to face them.


Army Blue

Spawn points
Axis east (S4): Fly over the burning village at your 2 o' clock until a message tells you that two Hurricans are on their way. Head to Sidi Barrani to face them.
Axis west (E5): Fly over the burning airfield at your 3 o' clock until a message tells you that two Beaufighters are on their way. Head to Sollum bay to face them.

Update: Le Havre battle is now open!

Escort british Wellington to a blitz over Le Havre dock, or be one of them!
The Germans are massing boats to prepare for the invasion, sink all those moored in the harbor.

But if you prefer to fly German you must to shoot down as many bombers as possible before they drop their load!

Update: Stuka attack on the convoy!

A british convoy is passing through the Channel, a group of Stuka is looking for it.

Choose which side to deploy your skills!

(Wrong "Le Havre" trigger corrected, now it will not fire every 3 minutes)

I just noticed your server is on the Great Battles series now?  Any info about that?

Yes, we have both...

On Great Battles we use that as acrobatic server when we have training session, otherwise there should be some auto-generated missions with AI.
