2. Added a few new Single Unit Ports.

I was Navy, but Assigned TAD to the 24th MAU Hq in Beirut. By far the finest period of my service!

I'll have a look at V3 in a bit but for me personally, more EAMS to tell us when the shooting should start and some more Russians. MY only loses were to running out of fuel.

Apart from that still can't get those decoys to work on the B-52s (never have and probably never will lol)

Awesome wee scenario. Cheers

More EAms were added.

As to the decoys, I messaged the developers when I did the Incirlik Scenario. You have to manually BOL launch them! Neat thing is after they are launched you can control them in flight to some extent.

So playing with it and the D-EMP weapons aren't available, only in the professional version. Will remove them from teh Magazines.

The O-EMP weapons work. I have ben able to launch both the ADM-160B/C MALD version versions. The J can be directed the with "plot course."

Looks good. Played it through last night.
Ran into a couple of things, The Russians kicked the whole thing off early when I sent my recon drones towards Cuba. That meant I had to get my AAW patrol going early. Took some loses there but not as many as they took.
For some reason I couldn't get my DDG and LCS to go above 13 knots when grouped. That might have been me though.
and I also kicked the bombing campaign off an hour early because I had several gins and forgot it was 0300 I was supposed to attack at.
Apart from that looks good man. Will rerun again later. Only other suggestion I would offer is spare weapons for everyone at Homestead. I had ferried alot of my aircraft down there and when they landed eg F15s which I was using for AAW there wasn't enough AMRAAMs to rearm them.

The 13 knot issue may be because the 'avoid cavitation' tick box has been checked, either on one of the ships individually, or on the group as a whole. I've had that problem before.

I am bad about that, I had 3 years of "Avoid Cavitation" banged into me! Not only does if put noise into the water, but is bad for the propeller.

Thank you.

Had that happen as well, but in the real world, they might. So maybe not a bad thing, EAMs can't respond to it unless I use a LUA script, might do that. Time permitting.

Or me, I will check to see if "Avoid Cavitation" is checked.

I considered that at one point, and you're right. Its a big base and given its location bet the magazines/ammo bunkers are pretty full. Will do it. Thanks for the help.

Changes made, don't think they are enough to warrant another play test. Loading on the Ready Site.

Now the Kaliningrad sister scenario (already started) or just something small.

Dude,
I rediscovered this one last night in the Community Scenarios folder and decided to give it another whirl.

I have to say it's class. Only a couple of things I have found on that version and don't think they are major.

The A-10s have no loadouts either at their home base or at Homestead. The Russians kicked it off very early this time by shooting at 1 of my helicoptersm don't know if that is somethign to fix should you ever revisit this one and the scoring apparently isn't defined. I got 30000 points anyway but it doesn't declare a victory.

The only other thing I would suggest is potentially an EAM after the shooting has started to update everyone on the story. Or even just to signal sucess. I spent the full 2 days flattening airports for fun ;)
I know this one is over a year old now but in terms of playability I can say that it has stood the test of time.

Cheers man

I'll take a look at these issues. Thanks.

EDIT: Thanks for telling me about this. Looks like the A-10s are a database change issues, looks like a new DECM Pod is available. Otherwise everything else is in the Magazines. that's an easy fix. Not sure why the score reset, but I have had that happen before. I can fix that off of my personal copy and actually 30,000 was the magic number.
