Just wanted to report on my 906.16 experience. Everything seems to be working, except a few times I couldn't launch a saved game: the "accept scenario options" button did not work (for "The Big Stick" scenario). Launching it with the scenario editor did work though.
Also I tried a few things based on the update log:
* "#11166 - SBIRS sats not working as expected": I added SBIRS to the game and it did not detect a DF-21D launch, so I am not sure they are working. Sensor range in the DB viewer is also at 2000nm so I am not sure they can see the ground.
* "#11129 - DB3k: DB-110 and Areos Pod Range updates": they have a 20nm range in the DB, so when using a Rafale to do recon, I get all of my detections from the onboard IRST (at a 30nm distance), and not from the recon pod. So there is no point using the recon pod. I think the range should be further increased, to at least the same value as modern laser designation pods.
Hi addressed these items in the new db in 906.18. Let me know.
Hi Mike, thanks for looking into that. I tested again with build 906.20.
#11166 is working fine, SBIRS detected the DF-21D launch, works like a charm.
#11129 : I think the detection ranges are OK now: I did a flyoff between a recon pod and a laser designation pod, and the recon pod gets the detection first, as it should. However, the designation pod is the first to classify the newly detected contacts, which is strange. I think the recon pod should also classify first. Maybe there is something to adjust in the zoom levels? I am putting the scenario and its log in the attachments if you want to look into it.
