No, I'm sorry. Simulating IFF more deeply is outside of our current scope. We "assume" that all units on the same side (!=friendly ;)) have some awesome portable IFF responder.

 

Ok! Thanks for the reply! Is there however any way to remove the green indicators from the radar by scripting? I'm thinking of the player having to figure out friendlies just by airplane type and all radar contacts whould be white.

LGB´s are still tracking vehicles, ruins MP gamemodes

Actually - they don't "track" a moving vehicle. They fly towards the position where the marked target was at the point of the munition release.
At a given distance from that position they'll seek for something they could guide onto (a laser spot in this case). If nothing's found they'll continue flying towards that initial position.

Possibility is to remove this faux "lock on after launch".

can't you simply disable the ability to lock on anything but laser/IR strobe targets for the bombs?

i think that's the main cause for the problems. and afair this was the way it used to be before sensors got changed.

The bomb already can't lock on anything else than laser/IR strobe. But it can be dropped without a lock - then it flies towards a position of something that was marked by the launching vehicle and only later it seeks for laser/IR strobe.
But it's probably not been the cleanest solution and we'll try to come up with a better one.

let it fly straight at first, then start homing in on the closest valid target near the marked target.

if the needed flight path corrections are to great, it's the pilot's fault that the bomb misses. but if the bomb can't find any target it should fly just like it was dropped with out any target.

i guess that would be the best solution here; no imba after-drop flight path, but still precise if a laser/ir strobe is in place

 

Spoiler

btw. i knew bombs couldn't actually lock vehicles, but my skill in expressing complex thoughts in english is relatively limited

So, did anyone find out a port where you can dock the USS Freedom? I believe even the Blue Pearl industrial port doesn't span the dimensions to plug the almighty static ship.

Btw., I don't know if anyone stated this already but the music of the Jets DLC is just f****** awesome. You music guys / the composer(s) really did a great job here, I especially love the main theme "Fighters Jets". When I saw the Aircraft Carrier Reveal Trailer, I was absolutely blown away. This soundtrack is even better than the LoW one, IMO.

Change the behavior of the parachute. This is annoying when the character almost touched the ground with the feet but the parachute:
- jumps on the crowns of trees and bushes
- jumps on the roofs of houses and other structures
The character dies in conditions that produce not the natural behavior of the parachute, which can not be controlled.

ILS needs to be 3 degree on ground and on carrier, same as PAPI

Jet tends to slip and slide even touching down at wings level

damage on landing even not a hard landing, only on carrier landing because i never flare, put her on with constant 3-4 degree glideslope

tailhook tends to retract itself after touchdown, result to a bolter nearly everytime i land when a perfect landing, i need to touchdown early to make the trap

tailhook too short compared to F/A-18

Got tired of not having AA units so fired up the "attach to" command. :D

It's very impressive but they changed some parts which are cooler in the studio version (talking about music notes, not about arrangement or synths, etc.).

That's not a bad idea at all... Could you post the offset you used?

You can experiment that quite easy actually.

Just place the vehicle at 0/0/0 and put the weapon where you want to have it. Than take the x and y coordinates into the command. Just try a few z coordinates and you will find a good solution quickly.

I agree that this is a major problem. I spent a couple hours last night practicing carrier landings, and this was a major problem, although by the end I was getting pretty good at it. I had several successful landings in a row... although I only stopped after 2 with zero damage. Before that I had multiple landings where I had no hull damage, but INST damage for some reason (why? I think the nose came down a bit hard after touchdown but...), and before that a couple with engine/gear/ctrl/inst damage, but no hul damage.

Earlier in my practice, I had multiple landings where I touched down before the wires, had the tail hook retract itself, and went off the end... its like I have to touchdown right on the wires. Here's the somewhat funny results of one landing where I touched down before the wires (a bit hard, granted, I guess, since I took damage), and the tailhook didn't engage, I ejected but the black wasp ended up not going over the edge:

?interpolation=lanczos-none&output-forma

But without a towing mod... I don't think that could be salvaged in game.

 

As for a CSAT reskin that had been mentioned earlier in this thread... its easy enough to "paper over" in the mission editor by placing CSAT banners and a Chinese flag:

FDB80E770DCA70DECCA4FB0B60D5402886613F3F

Spoiler

The flag is really high, so its a bit hard to see from that close to the tower

9D0A72421C3F93135DC6B566600CA79B609E4025

 

The obvious problem with a CSAT carrier is the lack of any CSAT aircraft that can land on the carrier - none have tailhooks. This can be handled with triggers/scripts in mission. I made a fairly simple trigger that simply checks if a plane has a speed within a certain range (~105 to 320 km/h in my script), and a direction in a certain range (no more than +/- 9 degrees for my script), and if so it activates a set velocity command  which sets the velocity of the plan to ~70 km/h straight down the runway (which is slow enough to stop in time). I find these landings to be a bit easier than dealing with the tailhook retracting

so... my CSAT carrier in the map editor:

4EBD9A6C379B3B92E7350C223EC45A230FB60807

(the banners to cover the US flag are arranged into a neat square with setPosASL commands upon mission start)

Spoiler

Obviously, those triggers are the area a plane needs to fly through to get slowed down for landing.

 

Still, the lack of a hangar deck and elevators is troublesome. In that image, you can see that I have a lot of ground vehicles sitting on the flight deck, so that the ship can be a mobile offshore base, and the Helos can sling load them and take them to land.

If we instead look at an LHD mod (Atlas: LHD plus, or use the CUP one if you prefer), derived from BI's arma 2 assets, the USS Freedom is *a lot* bigger:

Spoiler

Yet it seems with VTOL F-35s (Aegis mod), I can pack more stuff onto/into the LHD because of its elevators and hangar deck, and that less deck space is needed for launching/landing

So I'm still using the LHD more than the Freedom... and I'm only using the freedom because there's no good Opfor alternatives for VTOL fighters to use on the LHD.

And of course, the vehicles can be brought up to where helos/ a blackfish can lift them

They really could have done a lot more with minimal effort if they had also ported the F-35 from Arma2, and the LHD from Arma 2 + added elevators and fleshed out the interiors just a little more (they already had partially complete hidden interiors for the LHD in arma 2).

In the end, I managed to pack 6 F-35s into the LHD interior (+1 on the read elevator for a total of 7), a tone of ground vehicles (plenty of empty space in the well deck), 4 Blackfeet, 4 Falcon drones, 2x hurons, 2x ghosthawks, 1x blackfish onto the LHD, and because all aircraft are VTOL, they operate just fine.. although you can see in the first image of that last spoiler section, that the deck really isn't even that crowded, the blackfish has a mostly clear runway (just the 1 huron at the end.. although that was with the 3x blackfeet, 3x falcon packing, but I was abel to pack them a bit more efficiently and get 4 of each).

I can't put nearly as much stuff on the USS carrier because of the lack of a well deck and the greater need to keep the runways free
