How do I get them to do what I want them to do once they get there? :D

Greetings, All -

Here's the situation.

1. I have two airbases (call 'em A and B) who I've managed to get assigned to a mission that will have them ferry to Base C. (Right now, all birds at A and B are fragged in Ferry configuration and should launch with no problems.)

2. Once they get to Base C, here's the challenge: I want Base C, for scenario purposes, to have a restricted loadout capability - that is, I want the birds to ONLY be able to reload with one or two of the available loadouts. So, with that in mind, how do I mission the birds to load only with those loadouts? I've got to figure out how to have them cycle from Ferry to one of the available loadouts, and that's what's hanging me up at this point. I know I can assign Base C to the proper strike/patrol missions, and once the birds are reloaded that will have them go out and do their thing. And along the same lines, do I need to put ONLY the magazines to support those loadouts at Base C?

Many, many thanks in advance!

Mike

Mike,

Am I correct that a) this is a computer-controlled side and b) you want a delay before the strike mission launches?

If so, an easier way to do it is to have all the aircraft at Base C, but set them up with a very long ready time--however long the normal ready time would be plus however long the ferry delay would have been. (You can do that when you set loadouts.)

If the goal is to give the player time to intercept the incoming aircraft...hmmm...I might set that up as two missions. The first is the "stop Red from getting new aircraft" and the second is "Red has aircraft...stop him from using them!"

As for limiting munitions, yes, I think all you have to do is decide how many munitions and of what type to provide. Then, unless the "unlimited ammunition at air bases" option is selected, the aircraft are limited to what is in the air base magazines.

I hope this helps.

Mark,

The scenario has these birds slowly deploying over about ten hours (got that covered with ready times) to Base C so they can support an invasion of A Nearby Island and plausibly not get picked up by the limited AWACS capability that BlueForce has. This side would be computer controlled if you're playing BlueForce; the idea is that the Blue Force player would - IF they can get themselves into position to start whacking Base C - would not have a solid idea of just how many Red Force planes he's up against. (BlueForce is ALL about the defense if it's the computer side, that's fairly easy to set up.)

I can work with the option of just having the birds already at C and carefully tweaking the ready times and frags - that may end up being my default setting here.

Thanks for the ideas!

Mike
