From: Grapevine, TX, USA
While building Spring High, I found three issues (possibly specific to the aircraft/loadout) that I couldn't get to work right.
- Ignore plotted course seems to leave group lead obeying throttle command, other three members lag and climb (cruise/unknown alt) when attack order is given. I was manually targeting (Ctrl-F1) the SAM units; #2/3/4 in the formation would climb once their yellow targeting vector appeared, then descend back to loadout attack altitude.
- Manual altitude input is *sometimes* being ignored. Group set to 1100ft AGL at a waypoint (to ensure high enough for M117 release) and it defaults back to Min Alt. Throttle setting was obeyed, and manual input after the waypoint would work as I think it's intended.
- Default Attack Altitude for mixed loadout appears (at least for this one, which I chose in error for the scenario) to be the lower of the two 'min release' altitudes. Flight lead is obeying group setting of 1100 feet, the trailers (#2/3/4) attempt to attack at 800 AGL; they release the Mk. 82s, then climb to 1000 AGL and circle to reattack with M117s. That's fairly suicidal in a defense suppression mission.
Zip file attached, with two save-games.
