Please take a look at this scenario. Flight Skull55 (a two-plane group) has been in the air for 20 and 45 minutes. EACH plane is traveling at the same speed, same altitude, and they have been (and are) directly on top of one another. They took off together and have never been separated. Yet, as you can see, in less than 21 minutes, the wingman has already used 600 kg more than the lead. There was no maneuvering, or evading. They literally just left the base.
Additionally, another group, Flight Chevy27, is also interesting. Redcock #1 and Redcock #2 have both been flying exactly the same amount of time, same speed, same altitude, etc. Just like the other group (Skull55) the wingman has already used 80 more kg of fuel, even though he is directly on top of the lead. Again, they took off together, and all indicators reveal that they are exactly the same.
As these flights progress, both sets of wingmen have less and less fuel (obviously), and at some point they need to either RTB or head to the tanker. They should be exactly the same, so this shouldn't be happening.
Now, if you repeat this scenario but fly all of the planes as SINGLE UNITS, it plays absolutely perfect. All of the planes are within 1 or 2 kg (at the most) different from their wingman for the entire flight. Hopefully, that information will help you decipher the cause of this problem.
This is why I said that this is crucial because the longer distance attack flights will become fractured due to the fuel difference.
I know that you are busy, but PLEASE FIX THIS ONE as it is kind of important for CMANO users.
Thank you for keeping CMANO alive, and thank you for your continued and collective efforts.
I just checked this save, using the current CMO public beta.
I let the scenario run and observed the fuel statuses. The established fuel discrepancies between lead and wingman on the already airborne groups were left in the same ratios as initial (on load), and on groups that took off after resuming the save, the fuel consumption was precisely identical.
This appears to confirm that the tweaks that we made to the CMO branch, in order to remedy fuel discrepancies, are effective.
Afterwards, we will check the current CMANO branch. If the problem is still present there, we will try to transplant the CMO tweaks to CMANO in order to hopefully resolve the issue there too.
