Hi to all,
ITAF group is presenting a new campaign: O.L.C.

MISSION 2: 
Monday, 1th October. Takeoff at 21.30 CET


"XXX is going to be kicked, please check One Life Campaign on sturmovik forum"
If you recieved this message from the server, it means that you are not registered for the campaign, there is a mistype in the excel file or you selected the wrong aircraft.


BE AWARE:
The whole campaign will be managed by Discord. If you are not in, write me a PM to be sure to receive all the info!
Discord: https://discord.gg/NrnxMdgVQz

Rules and general info

Spoiler

Day: Monday
Server open at: 21.00 CET
Takeoff at: 21.30 CET
Forbidden to join the server after 21.40 CET (see: "fog of war")
Mission end at: 23.30 CET

- One role per campaign:
When you will join the campaign you will have to choose between bombers, attackers, jabo or fighters. Each role has two planes available according to your rank.
*You will not be able to change the role trough the campaign*, unless you find another players that want to switch his role with your (but this switch can be done just once, after mission 6)

- One life per night:
If you die, get captured, bail out or have to ditch your mission is over.
Instead, if you manage to reach an airfield you can repair, rearm and takeoff again. Stay safe!

- Big travels:
Airfields are 90-120 km from the front-line... this means that some target it's even more distant and could require a long trip.
But there will be some closer "rearm-refuel-repair" airfield
(BTW, I will work on the possibility to open a new airfield closed to the front-line, but not sure this feature will be present in this edition)

- Ground matters:
The focus of the campaign will be to support your ground troops protecting them and attacking the enemy's one. If you will do a good job your tanks will have *more probability* to move the front-line.

- Fog of war
At the beginning of the campaign, you will have few info on the enemy positions. You will have to find them trough the missions.
Icons on the map will not be displayed until 21.40, 10 minutes after the takeoff signal.
For that time all the players have to be inside their cockpit.

- Registration
It will be necessary to register for the campaign (as fighter, bomber, etc.) and then confirm your presence each mission.
Each team will have the possibility to register a max 53 players, but just 42 will be allowed to play the mission.

We know that some rules can sound a little "strict", but they are needed for various reasons.


What a player have to do to play

Spoiler

BEFORE THE CAMPAIGN
- To participate in the Campaign, you must register here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sdWjXtsaO5qHdsxKP1Ux7lEks-QFKoRU6Ej0pGliJFU/edit?usp=sharing
- Decide which side do you want to join
- Decide if you want to fly the whole Campaign as Fighter, Jabo, Attacker or Bomber.
- Check here if your role subscriptions are already open and respect the *reserved spot*
- Write in an empty slot your **exact “in game” name** *(otherwise you will be kicked during the mission)*

BEFORE A MISSION
- Confirm your presence each mission in *"sign-up-next-mission"*, otherwise leave your spot for “backup players”
- Check which plane as been assigned to you, to have the better plane insert the higher rank pilot as “Leader”
- Remember that Leader and Wingman scores will affect each other
- Organise a briefing with your team, deciding who will escort the bombers and who will protect the allied troops

DURING A MISSION
- Every monday at 21.00 CET the server will be up, take-off will be at 21.30. Mission end at 23.30
- Select the airplane that has been assigned to you *(otherwise you will be kicked by the server)*
- You have 1 life per night, but you can repair, rearm and refuel
- Shoot, bomb, recon, drop, deploy, supply as much as you can.
- *Be aware*: the only valid targets during a mission are those in the **areas delimited by the icons**, all the other objects on the map are landscape only
- Depending how you accomplish the task assigned to you, your score will have some bonus/malus
- If you come back home with your partner your score will have an important bonus

AFTER A MISSION

- Your rank will change according to your score and how you accomplished the task assigned to you.
- If you destroyed a particular object, you will not find it anymore*
- Wait for the ground battle to find out if you have been of any help to your ground troops
- Plan the next mission

*This is true for the "single" objects (i.e. AntiAircraft Artillery, Tanks, etc.) If the block contains more objects, it will be deleted from the mission when most of them will be destroyed


1-Registration

Spoiler

To participate in the Campaign, you must register here:
Registration file is closed. PM message me if you want to join


In the first page you have a recap of your team players.
Choose your side and click on it, then click another time on "Blue/Red registration"

Players below the red line are considered "back-up" players. This means that they can only fly to replace an absent player from the same group
 

NOTE:
To fly Spitfire or P-39 just subscribe as a normal fighter, you will have the possibility to choose these planes at the time of registration for the specific mission.


2-Planset

Spoiler

According to the leader rank, you will be able to fly one plane or the other.
This *planes* are the starting aircraft.

By preserving the pilot and destroying the enemy targets / planes you can get the next plane. Check "3-mission-subscribe" to have further information.
 

Planeset

- Fighters
*Bf 109 F-4*            *Yak 1 ser. 69*            *P-39L-1*
Bf109 G-2                 Yak-7B ser.36              Spitfire Mk.VB

- Jabo
*Bf109 - F2*            *Hurricane Mk.II*
Fw190 - A3               La-5 ser.8

- Attackers
*Ju87 D-3*             *LaGG-3 ser.29*
Bf110 - E2                 Il-2 mod.1942

- Bombers
*H111 - H6*       *Pe-2 ser.87*
Ju88 A-4            A-20B


3-mission subscribe

Spoiler

According to your role, fill in the file:

Fighters have to choose between:
C.A.P. Fighters (they will have to protect their own targets)
Escort Fighters (they will have to protect their bombers&attackers)
 

Each squadron will fly with the same plane, according to the leader rank:
- below the Captain -> basic plane (Bf 109 F-4, LaGG-3 ser.29, H111 H-6...)
- Captain or higher ->  better plane (Bf 109 G-2, La 5 ser.8, Ju 88 A-4...)
 

Fighters and Jabo squadron are made by 2 pilots, Attackers squadron by four and Bomber squadron by three.

Doesn't really matter if the Leader in the file will be also the Leader in the game, it's just to assign the plane.
BUT: Remember that the Leader score will also affect the wingman's score and vice versa, so be sure to fly with someone you trust!


4-Find the targets

Spoiler

TARGETS
In O.L.C. you will have a lot of possible targets: some really close to the front-line, perfect for a "hit&run", some other deep in the enemy territory.
But, as you can see from the map, you won't know their location at the beginning of the campaign.
How to find them?
- Option 1: Go to the area and hope to be lucky enough to find them before enemy fighters find you
- Option 2: Send some plane to recon the area *(Check: 5-special-missions)*

At the same time you will know the exact location of what you have to protect, but you will not know which one the enemy will attack.
So you have to guess their path using some "scouts" and then try to intercept the enemies before they do their job.

There are a total of 54 targets per faction, divided into 4 sectors:
Depot -> Reserve -> Artillery -> Front line || Front line <- Artillery <- Reserve <- Depot

**Note**
Only the target inside the blue or red circle are valid targets. 
If you bomb some other object in the map, it will not count.


5-Special missions

Spoiler

(still working on this section)

Recon:
Any player will be able to report a target they have spotted on the map.
There will be a dedicated text channel where you will just have to insert the most correct position possible (**i.e.**: 1902 numpad 3, close to the river)

Except tanks, all the other targets will remain in the same position during the entire campaign


6-rearm and repair

Spoiler

Each faction will have 3 airports where it will be possible to repair, rearm and refuel -> Close to the Tower area

*NOTE:*
At the moment, if you finish the mission at that airport, you will be reported as ditched and, in case of damage, your opponent will be awarded a kill.
I'm trying to fix this, I'm not sure we'll have a proper solution in time.
In any case, landing at your home airport will avoid any problems.


7-ground battles

Spoiler

Ground battles will be a staple of this campaign.
Unfortunately, given their complexity, at the moment I reserve the right to provide little information on this because it is likely that I will be forced to make small changes during this first edition.
In any case, the idea is to create a calculation system that is influenced by the results obtained by the players, while providing a small margin of "randomness".

In short:
Each group of objects on the ground has two values:
COM -> Combat: how many tanks, cannons, etc. etc. are able to face the enemy
REF -> Refueling: how much food, ammunition, fuel etc. etc. troops in that sector have.

Any object destroyed by a player during the mission will decrease these values.

Between missions it will be possible for a column of tanks to launch an attack on enemy positions.
In the next version they will be managed by a player of the two factions, at the moment I will be in charge of both the reds and the blues to make sure that everything is working correctly.

The greater the difference in the COM value between attackers and defenders, the greater the likelihood that the larger troops will win.

Note:
- When the COM value is equal (i.e. 92% attackers and 92% defenders) the odds of winning will be slightly in favor of the defense (55% vs 45%)
- If either COM or RIF value falls below 40%, the troops will automatically be forced to retreat
- During the mission, in the sector attacked by the bombers, any columns of tanks present will also be activated. If bombed, their COM or REF values will be reduced.
- At the end of the mission, if two units are fighting, the damage inflicted by the players will be added to the additional damage inflicted by the enemy unit with which they are in combat.


8-Check the stats

Spoiler

Once the mission is over, you can check your stats from your excel file.
Score it's important to get an higher rank. Points needed to become Captain and move on to the next plane: 350 pts

You will start the Campaign with a 150 pts bonus. The first time you will die/get captured, you will lost your bonus.
For each mission you will fly you will receive 20 pts.
Air kill: + 4 pts
Your wingman air kill: + 2 pts
Assist: + 2 pts
Ground kill: + 6 pts
Your wingman ground kill: + 1 pts
Recon: + 5 pts
Your wingman recon: + 3 pts
Transport (not in this edition): + 150 pts
Landed: + 3 pts
Landed with (all) your wingman: + 27 pts for fighters&jabo/ +81 pts for attacker&bombers
In flight: +2 pts
Ditched: + 3 pts (due to a bug, working to low this value)
Bailed out: - 15 pts
Captured or Dead: your score will be reset to 0 pts
Absent -> (a player who confirmed his presence for that mission and then didn't show up without communicate it) - 150 pts


C.A.P. fighters will receive a bonus for each enemy bomber/attacker downed and a malus for each friendly ground target lost.
Escort fighters will receive a bonus for each enemy ground target destroyed by allied and a malus for each friendly bomber/attacker lost.
Jabo will receive a bonus for each enemy ground target destroyed by Jabo group
Attackers will receive a bonus for each enemy ground target destroyed by Attackers group
Bombers will receive a bonus for each enemy ground target destroyed by Bombers group


9-captured pilots

Spoiler

Bailing out or ditching behind enemy lines is always a risky business

A pilot who is forced to touch the ground in enemy territory has some chance of being able to escape.
Should he make it his career he will continue without problems, otherwise he will be captured and interrogated by the enemy police.
The lower the rank of him, the higher the likelihood that he will speak, BUT the less important the information given to the enemy will be.
On the other hand information obtained from a General will be extremely useful, BUT it will be difficult to force him to speak.


10-pilot life

Spoiler

Every night will be "One life" mission.
This mean that if you died, get captured or even bail out/ditch over friendly territory you will not able to fly again for that night. Instead, if you manage to land you can do another sortie.
NOTE: If you die or destroy the aircraft during taxi, takeoff or the first few minutes of flight for a technical problem, you are allowed to take off again.

To repair, rearm and refuel you will have 3 airfield close to the frontline.
If you land at your home airfield you cannot RRR, just exit and take a new aircraft.
NOTE:You can finish your mission at "Central Repair (land here)" airfield, but if you do that at North or South Repair you will be reported as ditched -> if damaged you will give a kill to your enemy.

Sounds fantastic, I'd love to give this one a go :good:

 

Oh I just noticed that you annouced the technochat on your 666th post :o: You might want set it to "off" for your 667th to keep the demons away ;)

 

Just kidding, it sounds great, I really like the idea of long hauland refuel rearm and dead is dead even although I know what my outcome will be all too quickly :)

Edit, Just spotted the Disocord, which I don't do. Is it a requirement?, if so I'm out before I started...which would be a shame as I would have flown red for you no sweat, Pe-2 or LaGG-3 with pleasure.

No is not.

If you have SRS you can use that to communicate

That was fun while it lasted. I lost my connection while I was at the centre repair base. I never found the location to get the repair working either? I was next to the control tower as you said...wrong side mabey :)

 

I couldn't see the server afterwards in the list, I assumed that was normal?

 

Anyhow I enjoyed the concept and the targets were really good and look like much effort and thought has been put into their creation. I really like the "fog of war" and the way it's implemented. 

 

A little bit more information about radio channels and how to use facilities like repair base, before we start would be helpful so that we can be better co-ordinated. I had SRS setup but never heard many on it.

 

Other than that, thanks for a fun new server and good luck getting it running the way you want it. Looking forward to see the next session :good:

 Thanks Pict.

Yes, was on the other side, but it's a mission designer mistake. I will fix it.

What happened? Still don't know, but the whole server went down.

We will investigate tomorrow.

Thanks for the nice words, for sure we will give to players more info when things will be "serious"

The whole blue time have to decide where to attack, but it will be just one sector (most of the sectors contains many targets)

So you have to decide that with your team mates...

Section: "10-pilot life" added to the first post. Read it cause it's important.


Plus:
Since now to mission 1 our server will remain up with a "blank" mission in which you can test if the kick system is working correctly, to avoid any problem.

SERVER NAME: Tuttovola org - One life campaign - kick test
1) Check that you name is in the *"Player List"* below
2) Join the server and select your faction
3) Select your aircraft
4) Spawn and take off
If after a minute you see no message in chat and you are not kicked from the server, everything is fine and you can exit (there is really nothing to do in that map)
 

If you are kicked, check if your name is in written correctly in the "Registration" file. Then write to me.

*Player list* (I will try to update as much as possible, but if your name is not here you will be kicked even if is write correctly)
If you are kicked, check if you name is in written correctly in the "Registration" file. Then write to me.

Thats how its explained on Discord:

 

"As backup player you can select your pilot in the "mission-1" file after Sunday midnight (basically from Monday morning). If a "Regular" from your team or if somebody from another team has already said he will not be present then you will able to do the substitution even before Monday"

Excellent. Talk to you over SRS or via chat if you don't sort out your sound problems.

nice job leading the bomber raid Thor, could have done with fighter cover close to target as the drop got disrupted right at wrong moment. Server crash probably saved my life cos as I slowed behind Marta for landing, what was left of my pe2 suddenly appeared to be dropping from the sky. Soon after that my SRS dico'd as well so could not say goodnight. Nice to have flown with you again.
