    The mkI and mkI 100 represent 'pre-BoB' spitfires. By the 'start' of the BoB most, if not all Spitfires and Hurricanes were either using the De Havilland constant speed or Rotol constant speed units.

    So no Noofy, no need to worry about them... The Beau on the other hand...

    Thanks for fast reply, I don't want to be annoying, but Spitfire I (100 octane) is still unavailable :E

    Is it really? It clearly shows I have no idea what Spitfire models have that prop type
    Now added - will be there in three hours from now ...

    We (or I) know this because, we can spawn in bomber atacks on ATAG in radio menu, while they spawn in, they are announced in big letters that they were spawned in.
    Seeing stutters at the same time confirms that it is caused by it.

    Also we see players planes stutter, when they Alt-F2 from the crew seat or switches from one crewseat to another crewseat - means an AI will take it's seat back.
    No stutter is caused if player takes over a crew seat while not obtaining another crew seat, as the player still obtains the pilot seat.
    However you only see the related plane stutter while others don't stutter.
    Afterall clearly stutters are caused by AI on player planes, aswell as on all the other planes, when big AI formation spawns in.

    I still see planes jumping to different positions. Or I don't hear shots hitting me often because of the lag, but this is present in ATAG aswell as this might be related to the ping.
    The laggier it is the more pronounced this laggy sound is.

    Only if the clients game see the bullets that appear on his screen hit his plane will make the impact sound.
    If they would make it in battlefield stile or other games, you would hear a multiple hit sound at the same time, making it seem you only got hit once, but die instantly. I think this is not a well solution aswell.
    However there might be only these two ways. Or maybe try to make the impact sound afterwards and display the hit sounds seperated to make it sound legit.
    But that's not in the hands of the server operators.

    No Idea why planes stuck midair though, whish you can find the solution for that, it's quite annoying.

    Thanks for that ... I am not sure what I can do to improve stuff, but will try.
    For now I have set the removal of AI a/c after landing to a time out of 2 seconds: Previously this was 2 minutes.
    Hopefully this will those a/c stuck midair disappear within 2 seconds...
    (This change will be active in about three hours from now)

    Re: The DangerDogz CloD Server - Suggestions - Remarks - All Welcome!

    I would suggest to try an kind of emtpy "mission" no ai and add additional server settings one by one like despawn scripts or alike to see which on of it is causing the problem.
    Then maybe ATAG mission creators can help out with their despawn scripts or whatever they do to make a good server.

    Oh maybe that's the cause:
    As I know, usually if someone jumps out of their plane, their plane get's taken over by a "dummy AI" which will then make it crash to ground.
    Usually whenever the player took the parachute or abdoned the plane and it crashes to ground it says AI plane crashed and AI died.
    Never liked that it says AI instead of the last player name that used this plane seems like this is a workaround to make the plane crash to ground.

    One of my biggest wish would be like that TFS would remove the workaround dummy AI and make the plane just dead stick with the last input crash instead.
    Having empty pilot seat but plane linked to the last Pilot Player to see the real name of the shot down plane.
    Funny enough to have a AI Pilot die when the actual Pilot took the chute.


    Even though I don't really enjoy AI (only sometimes shooting bombers) and having everybody on this server, I still support different server options for players on CloD and I highly appreciate your open mind to make your server a better place.
    So thanks for your effort

    Well, the "fix" of August 17th did not work.
    Changed some other bit of code to see if that will help Will be active in about 2.5 hours from now.
    (Not easy to test this one though)

    Reverted that latest change, as that resulted in your a/c disappearing once you've baled out... In my opinion that's worse than the every now and then occurrence of an empty a/c stuck in the air for 60 seconds. Could be just me though... what's the better option?

    Actuall not sure, both is quite bad.

    I just noticed I didn't complete my though above. It looks like if theres no AI spawned into an abdoned plane, which would make the plane being damaged and crash to ground. It seems to be missing. Not sure how ATAG is doing that.

    One of the problems of the plane stuck in the air variant is the risk of collision when you closely follow someone who bails out. Happens often in dogfights...

    Re: The DangerDogz CloD Server - Suggestions - Remarks - All Welcome!

    So, now I've added the Refuel and Re-arm stuff into our server.
    Available via Tab-4, I've used the multiplayer version that was mentioned here: Rearm Refuel Example Scripts For Cliffs Of Dover

    One downside, if you leave your a/c on the runway, AI will take it over, and have its ways with it... Previous versions removed it within a second, that part has stopped working for unknown reasons... Oh well..

    Edit: Will be truly active in an hour and a bit from now, once the mission restarts ...

    Is this because of rearm/refuel? A side effect?

    It kinda is...
    There was a bit of code in the original mission that would remove the a/c, in a routine named 'OnPlaceLeave'

    That same name is also used in the code for Rearm/Refuel. And one cannot have two of those objects having same name in the code.
    So, I tried to combine them into one. And I think I did. The bits of code are in, no errors

    But no, it did not work as intended. So, in the end, my limited knowledge of C## is probably the cause.
    (Though not sure whether it's even a problem or issue ... might call it a feature and leave it at that!)

    Ahhh!

    Yes: You see, everything that concerns RearmRefuel and is within that (example) class Mission, must be copied into the existing functions of your real class Mission!

    So that single line in the Rearm/Refuel example Mission's OnPlaceLeave(Player player, AiActor actor, int placeIndex) function

    ManageRnr.cancelOfPlayer(GamePlay, player);

    must just be added to your existing OnPlaceLeave(Player player, AiActor actor, int placeIndex) function.

    None of the functions in the example Mission class should replace one of yours...

    Re: The DangerDogz CloD Server - Suggestions - Remarks - All Welcome!

    Thanks for that explanation Artist ... I think I did that, in the end:

    Snippet from the entire .cs file, included at the top is the end of the inserted RR code...
    Code:
                /// set 4. Mission Menu again (not showing!, just setting)
                setMainMenu(CurPlayer);
            }
        }
    
       public override void OnPlaceLeave(Player player, AiActor actor, int placeIndex)
           {
    	
    	base.OnPlaceLeave(player, actor, placeIndex);
           Timeout(1, () =>
            { damageAiControlledPlane(actor); }
               );
     	/// REARM/REFUEL: cancel possibly pending request of player
           ManageRnr.cancelOfPlayer(GamePlay, player);
         }
    
        public override void OnActorDead(int missionNumber, string shortName, AiActor actor, List<DamagerScore> damages)
        {
    Took the freedom to attached the .cs completely, below as a spolier ... if you could take look at it ... please ?

    Must add this: Previously, the leftover a/c was removed within 1 second (Timeout(1,()), looks like now it is doing that after one minute or so ...
    Could the added code have changed the timer/timing within 'Timeout'?

    Took the freedom to attached the .cs completely, below as a spolier ... if you could take look at it ... please ?

    Must add this: Previously, the leftover a/c was removed within 1 second (Timeout(1,()), looks like now it is doing that after one minute or so ...
    Could the added code have changed the timer/timing within 'Timeout'?
    Not that i can image, but try with putting the Rearm/Refuel cancel *before* you initate the timeout


    Code:
                /// set 4. Mission Menu again (not showing!, just setting)

    Re: The DangerDogz CloD Server - Suggestions - Remarks - All Welcome!

    Thanks very much Artist, thanks to your tips I think I figured out what is happening here...
    (Changing the sequence of the commands made no change by the way)

    It works as it is supposed to: The code is fine.
    Looks like I have not been paying attention in the 'original' pre RR version : I bet it happened there as well.

    Anyways, I'm happy now, although it's not perfect, I do not think it's a problem... not to me anyways, I can ignore it happening - as the circumstances will not occur that often: Create a/c, press Esc, leave a/c, pick a new one at the same base...

    Although I would like to get rid of a lot of the current code, and replace it by some new bits. Have no clue how though.
    The only code needed in this server (besides Rearm Refuel) is the proper removal of crashed and landed AI aircraft. Current code is based on ancient stuff from an early ATAG mission - and edited by me as well... it's a bit of a mess.


    Oh well.. Thanks again!

    This should be all you need.


    public override void OnPlaceLeave(Player player, AiActor actor, int placeIndex) {

    ManageRnr.cancelOfPlayer(GamePlay, player);
    damageAiControlledPlane(actor);
    }

    I have been having my 110s and BR 20s disappear while on this server.
    Happens after only a minute or two in the BR 20 at Estree.
    It can happen to my 110 while I'm diving onto Hawkinge.
    Very strange goings on.

    Could very well be due to the changes made for the refuel and rearm stuff... Will look into it.
    And maybe even remove that RR code again - just need to check how many really use it.

    It seems to happens only when you jump to another crew position, at least in the Bf 110 variants ( no pilot ). For example if you jump to the rear gunner position, also only one time, and then you back to the pilot one your aircraft then disappers after a minute or so. Still testing this but it seems that if you occupy only the pilot position ( not switching to any other one at all ) this doesn't seems to happen.
    My guess is that the server script, when switching to a crew position ( no pilot ), considers you as leaving the plane so it despawn\delete it like when you leave the aircraft pressing ALT+F2.
    On the main ATAG server, where the rearm/refuel script is also active, this doesn't seems to happen so the problem seems to be only DD server script related; Probably you wrote something wrong in the script you are using. ( again, just my guess )

    My suggestion would be to remove the dead aircraft if that can be done. A DD server mission just ended, and overflying Dover at the end of the mission I could count 32 dead aircraft in the air, on the ground, in the sea. The in-game map was cluttered with icons and useless. I'd say the inconvenience for 110 and other multi-crew aircraft is a very minor thing in comparison to that disaster-scene! In the picture all the aircraft except my own are dead...

    Fully agree.
    Also it seems that if one uses a different key than ALT+F2 (default mapping) to get back to pilot seat the multi-crew plane will not disappear.

    Re: The DangerDogz CloD Server - Suggestions - Remarks - All Welcome!

    The cause of the airframe-stuck-in-mid-air issue is now known.

    It's the use of the 'HOT' spawn points...

    So, short term fix is one simple rule: If you have spawned from one of the HOT spawn points, you may NOT bale out! Just keep falling and crash!

    This to keep the sky nice and tidy... If you want do be able to bale, then use one of the normal spawn points.

    Next fix would be to switch off the use of the HOT bases all together.

    The true fix should be applied by TF though. It is an in game bug ...
