  1. Playing around with the mission planner in this campaign, wish there were more campaigns that had this concept. No storylines or cinema, just go out and execute you're role for the team. Are there any good documents on planning an effective strike package? A lot of different strategies seem to be used in these sorties and I'm curious if there's any place they are explained
  2. Few missions in and enjoying the new campaign so far. In the first mission, I saw a reference to squadron morale - how does that effect the campaign? And is it reflected anywhere, like in the dialogue? Also if a squadron mate gets shot down, are there any consequences to the squadron? They seem to come right back. Thanks!
  3. Almost done with my second play through of this awesome campaign. Reading the novel alongside adds a whole new depth to both the novel and the sim. It reminds me a bit of the old WWII game "Pacific Strike" where the narrative was fleshed out in between missions through ready room dialogue. It got me thinking: seeing we'll be getting interiors for the Super Carrier this year, are there any plans to make use of them in Raven One?
  4. Hi all! Been flying the Hornet for a few months. Looking to learn more and take things online. Tend to be busy during typical online event times. Are there any squadrons that fly around 1600-2000 GMT window? Or are there squadrons that fly more traditional times but still have flights on "off-peak" hours? Thanks
  5. Have a quick scripting question. The Eastern Med Fleet Defense campaign got me thinking of trying to create a similar campaign that would begin in peacetime. Would it be possible to have bombers on a strike mission that abort when threatened? My thinking would be setting a flag in the campaign triggers where early on bombers and fighters "probe" the carrier airspace (this was and I think still is extremely common) then when the flag changes more groups continue when threatened and their escorts become more aggressive. I think the behaviors are there for the DCS AI. Is this in the scope of DCE?
  6. Recently started moving into some of the story based single player campaigns like BDs and OP Piercing Fury. Trouble I've had is that most missions are too long to do in one sitting. Is there any alternative to saving a game out there? Like editing a track file? Or a utility that could save a session somehow? Thank you!
  7. Thanks. I take it the gameport to usb will not allow keyboard commands to be passed through?
  8. Quick follow up, sorry to double post: The Suncom Talon looks good but I've seen that alot of people are refurbishing them. Will a simple game port to usb adapter be servicable for the stick? Or is taking it apart a requirement?
  9. Looking for an F-18 style stick recommendation, but most seem to be higher end price wise. Curious if theres any more affordable sticks patterned after the hornet. Thanks!
  10. Is the player AAR required for Mission 2? Never get a prompt o have Smoke take his turn to hook up to the tanker.
  11. On the discord, news said its with ED but ED will be testing it on their own for 2-4 weeks.
  12. I've had trouble getting Persian Power to save between missions. I've commented out the lines in MissionScripting. This is the error I have in my log file: 2020-06-08 16:53:17.594 ERROR VFS: VFS_open_write: CreateFile(PersianPowerSaveGame.lua): Access is denied. 2020-06-08 16:53:17.594 INFO SCRIPTING: Error in timer function: [string "C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS.openbeta\/~mis00002833.lua"]:98: attempt to index global 'File' (a nil value) 2020-06-08 16:53:17.594 INFO SCRIPTING: stack traceback: [string "C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS.openbeta\/~mis00002F51.lua"]:6076: in function <[string "C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS.openbeta\/~mis00002F51.lua"]:6073> [string "C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS.openbeta\/~mis00002833.lua"]:98: in function 'writemission' [string "C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS.openbeta\/~mis00002833.lua"]:222: in function <[string "C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\DCS.openbeta\/~mis00002833.lua"]:172> (tail call): ?

Edit: Ran DCS as an admin and that solved the issue.
  13. The DCE Campaigns are very immersive if you don't mind a little setup and are open to studying the briefings. They simulate conventional operations really well, imho. I'm really enjoying Integral Resolve right now. It's a semi-dynamic campaign for PG simulating the war on ISIS. Lots of CAS and interacting with agencies like ATC and CAOC. I would agree that Raven One will be awesome when it's ready, the book was amazing.
  14. Started playing this mission the other day and absolutely love it! Have a few questions though. How do I call in SEAD or CAP support? Those functions in the F10 menus don't seem to do anything. If I spawn or call a CAS, SEAD or Escort flight, where can I listen to other flights in my "package?" Suppose I want to hear a SEAD flight I spawned through Zeus engage SAMs so I know the SEAD window is open, or I want to hear a CAS call that they are running in, how can I do that?
  15. Hi all! "Finished" learning the basics of the Hornet after last month's sale. Are there any CAS missions high on replay value with some Carrier Ops for the Hornet? I really like the looks of Operation Bactria but it's A-10 focused. Are there any similar missions off of the Stennis? Thanks
