    I never really understood this whole code thing to be honest.

    My wife has just been using German for the past 20 years.

    In fact it's so effective my daughters started useing it really early on as well.

    I have no idea what the hell they are up to.

    Thanks for reading... I know that the earlier changes in the mission will require time and effort, but I was hoping the elimination of the Text Messages to the enemy could provide an easy, quick fix. No reply necessary... I'm sure that TFS will get to it when they are able.

    Re: Operation Steamworks

    Some days ago Lebano managed to get the agent back home safely. Escorting was great fun and excitement and seeing that other fellow pilots joined the escort as well.

    Here is a video of the mission from Lebano:


    Thanks for making this unusual mission, SM!

    Nice! I see the drop off messages aren't quite working correctly..

    And the soldiers are kind of .. short.

    Frankly, I did not realize. As far as I understood Lebano always was informed what to do.

    I completely forgot to express my gratitude to you as well, Freya.

    Re: Operation Steamworks

    Yup, lot of people helped with the script of that part.

    Will need to adjust some missions when 4.5 hits... the trees will make things much harder. They already make emergency landings much more fun and realistic now that you have to locate a good area to put down.

    I think the guys are in quicksand.

    Re: Operation Steamworks

    With the new patch 4.5 a lot has changed. In this mission it is impossible to pick up the agent anymore because of the ammount of trees.
    There is no playe to land with the 110...
    I had trees on maximum...

    +1

    I was just flying this map, and had a flight over Axis spy pickup zone.

    "Good luck picking him up", was my comment to teammates.

    Re: Operation Steamworks

    Our Axis bombers have made a few attempts at the 'Downtown' London targets.

    We haven't been able to find the triggers yet. The two red zones have been hit in Westminster and Southwark.

    The Blue zone is our next target.



    Can we get more intel or recon photos of this target zone?

    Re: Operation Steamworks

    Does someone know what the wind settings are on this map?

    I always thought that it is coming from the west with a strength of 2 m/s but after three high level attacks I am quite positive it is coming from east. Tab 7-3 says "090 2".

    I've made the update, and will send in shortly. Look for v45.31 in the briefing.

    Just a few things to note -

    -the pickup spots have changed, check sar info when HQ reports it has the information (~1 hour into mission?)

    -using SAR info menu selection - the location details are in there, I want to leave it up to the players to use that info to search out the landing strips so no screenies or extra detail will be submitted by me

    -Highly (very highly) suggest that the Blenheim and Stuka are the aircraft of choice for this operation. You can try in other types (Beau and any multicrew a/c EXCLUDING the tiger moth and its variants), but be warned - know how handle a STOL in whatever type you choose. The runways are tricky, short, and rough so taxi slow. I've done several circuits and bumps in the suggested a/c types, it is very possible to do - use patience.

    -the 'return agent to base' time limit was extended to 45min (from 35) so if the SAR aircraft is shot down, crashes on take-off, or otherwise finds its doom --> that doesn't mean the mission is lost! (but it sure won't help)

    -the boarding range (required minimum distance to the agent at pick-up point) is extended to 300m (from 200) so as to give you more room to turn around for take-off. Just remember you must be stopped within this range (suggest chocks-in, same as the previous version) in order for a successful retrieval of the agent.

    Have fun! Send any complaints to SM
