  1. Never seen the barque except for the fmv in 3rd/4th island in the campaign. I have seen the barque parked, but when I go and look for it is submerged or invisible. The docking animation probably got dropped or it was using a copy of the original Walrus AI and never could dock. :j:
  2. One of mantas accidently didn't dock correctly in the carrier so I got to fly around the interior of the carrier. I noticed there is a wet room at the back of the carrier with external door. In the original Carrier command this was the location for the Walrus's to dock and the supply drone. Is there an animation of the supply drone docking with carrier that I missed? Unfortunatley I only took one screen shot and video. But the video was largely corrupted. But if you place a manta against the hull in a nose down position the camera will rotate around the manta (on the external view) and you can see various bit inside the carrier. Wet Room? Wet Room? Nice missile

    Just looking around the web I found this web site which shows the different box designs for different platform. Though it is missing the zx spectrum. This seems to show the OP box layout which may have been for US release only. But it is interesting looking at the Atari ST box on that site show a rainbird layout. http://www.mobygames.com/game/carrier-command/cover-art
  4. Sometimes the walrus have some interesting parking configurations, first time I seen this type. Interestingly it makes a very Low Radar signature. Bombs away

    I don't recall that box design for the PC. I bought the Budget version which looked like this. IBM Compitable
  7. I collected all the ones you mention, still didn't get the laser. I found two more rusty structures. Which finally gave me the Laser. Endymion: East of the Command Centre and just north of the Walrus Garage. The button is on the left hand side facing the entrance. Lingard: North of the Refinery is a Re-aming Point. It is just West of that re-arming point in the trees. (artic)
  8. About a week ago, I replayed the vulcan mission for the 3rd time and accidently found the droid mission Looking at this link and the replies I relised I wasn't the only one who had missed this FPS. http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?140962-First-Island-Capture&p=2249222&viewfull=1#post2249222 When you leave the hanger and are in the corridor you have the door on the left that leads up to the "Control Room" and opposite that door "Engineering", a somewhat obscured door, that leads down to the supplies room, where you can control the droid. Quite fun really, very short. Seems to be a practice run with a droid. Maybe I missed a section in the main game. You don't need to complete that mini mission, it maybe an easter egg? Always thought the Carrier section was very short, shoot 3 droids, job done carrier is yours.
  9. Here you go as this question is a little off topic I have added a new topic, plus others like me missed it first time round. http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?142346-Droid-Mission-on-Vulcan-is-it-an-Easter-Egg-I-missed-it-twice!&p=2249712&viewfull=1#post2249712
  10. Hi, I was wondering if can pre-set the trim, in a configuration file. I am Finding that if I set the trim to a little forward and left prior to take off. It is easy for me to hover when applying (a little) back pressure. Plus it slows my take off as I need to find out where the neutral handling point when "light on the skids". I also find it easy to drive thru ETL and then back to hover again. FYI I have 0% dead zone on all axis, it's the joystick itself.

  11. I am in the same boat. I can't seem to get the same smooth level of control. I am constantly fighting the controller, with a lot of forward left stick, then it goes into rocking left and right. I downloaded the nightstalker* mod for expert flying. But I still getting the over controlling instability. I can do this mission in Trainee mode (no hover mode). I can do this in expert mode, but I need hover mode to pick up and set down the crates. But I still do not get the control you have. I have watched this video several times and your model doesn't seem to have any of issues I am having, in fact it seems to fly like a real helicopter. Getting frustrated, I have 200+ hours flying real choppers from Robinsons to Jet Ranger. None of them are a difficult as this. Any advice before I decide to un-install this game and throw it in the back of the wardrobe would be helpful. Many Thanks.
