NOTE TO MISSION DESIGNERS

Post by Shamansky » 25 Jan 2015 16:03

Kindly please enforce such options in your missions for our flight servers (25 JAN 2015):

[x] means enabled,
[ ] means disabled.


REQUESTED SETTINGS BELOW

DCS World (main) Options / VIEWS

mandatory:
[x] External Views
[ ] F5 Nearest AC View Allow --- specific and outside Mission Editor, make sure you have it disabled before saving mission
[*] F10 Map View Allow
[*] F11 Free Camera Allow
[*] Synchronize Cockpit Controls with HOTAS at Mission Start




Mission Editor mission options


Enforce (check box off, no enforcement)
[x] Permit crash rcvr - value to [ ]
[ ] External views - value to [x]
[x] F10 View options - value to 'player only', Frostie: "CA gets fog of war whilst everyone else sees only themselves"

optional:
[ ] Random system failures --- enforce and enable value only for hard-core missions and inform in mission briefing airplanes are old and prone to random failures, full knowledge of aircraft systems and emergency checklists are recommended.

[x] Padlock value to [ ]
[x] Unlimited fuel value to [ ]
[x] Unlimited weapons value to [ ]
[x] Radio Assist - value to [ ] --- very important setting, enforce Radio Assist off
[ ] Tooltips
[x] Immortal - value to [ ]
[x] Labels - value to [ ]
[x] Game flight mode - value to [ ]
[x] Game avionics mode - value to [ ]
[ ] Easy communication - value to [x] --- very useful setting, do not enforce Easy Comms in any value! Easy comms auto-dials frequencies in the clickable cockpit, from Radio selection function menu in DCS and also list frequencis there. Radio routines remain the same beside these two extra features, freq displayed in dialogue menu for radio and dialed in when corresponding F1-F12 is pressed (ED confirmed, this is not a cheat).
[ ] Scenes - value to HIGH
[ ] Civ traffic
[x] G-effects - value to SIM
[ ] minihud
ignoring bird settings, please discuss what is the best setting for low flying birds
[ ] Cockpit visual recon mode

Why Fog of war?
If you set it at 'player only' CA gets fog of war whilst everyone else sees only themselves.

Frostie, thanks for feedback. I am updating first post.
However I am not sure whether it will be then 100% compatible with AFAC client flights (visual recon mode feature).
