Limited Editions:

The limited editions are missions with exceptional features and/or modules for the Cold War 1947 - 1991 server. The missions run once in a while and I always announce the date and time a few days earlier. Check here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SRS and The MiG-15 Comms' Issue:

MiG-15 players have always been working alone on their radio frequency while being unable to contact any other pilots due to differences in the radio systems. I could enable the radio expansion for all to operate freely and I did that once, but that caused a bit of chaos and players ended up operating on different frequencies. Therefore, the radio expansion will only be enabled for MiG-15 players only. However, that requires the players themselves to do the following:

- Go to Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Mods\Services\DCS-SRS\Scripts path.
- Find the DCS-SimpleRadioStandalone.lua file and save a backup somewhere.
- Copy and paste the file below to your Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Mods\Services\DCS-SRS\Scripts path.
- Do NOT change the filename.

You should now have a Virtual Radio (Expanded Radio) available in SRS when flying the MiG-15. This radio can be tuned to all frequencies between 116.000 and 399.975 in the VHF and UHF Band.

Here's the file you'd need for that purpose:
DCS-SimpleRadioStandalone.lua

* Note that every time ED releases an update for DCS, the file is overwritten and you'll have to repeat the procedure of copying and pasting the file again.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FAQ's:

1- What does "the MiG-21 and the F-5 are the main modules in all missions" mean?
It means that these two have the most available slots in all missions; 8 slots at the least. In some missions it's even 12 or 14 slots each.

2- Sometimes I choose an aircraft, hit fly and all I get is the spectators view. Why?
All aircraft are limited in numbers in all missions (operation Hold The Line is the only exception due to mission editor issues). If that happens to you then it can only mean that your coalition has run out of that type of aircraft.

3- How can I know how many aircraft/weapons are still available at a specific airbase/FARP?
Click on an airbase/a FARP using the F10 map while using the Combined Arms module (whether as a cmdr or JTAC operator), then click on the ">" symbol from the small window showing details about that airbase/FARP, then click on aircraft, weapons, etc.

Note that players used to be able to do that without using the Combined Arms module. It might be a bug as of now.

4- Will the Ka-50 be removed one day?
The Ka-50 will be removed from most missions. It's mostly 6 or 8 Ka-50's available for 2 slots only. I might even reduce that number.

5- Will the OH-58D be added one day?
Yes. Limited and only in some missions as it is the case with the Ka-50.

6- Why the Ka-50? Why the OH-58D? And what about other helicopters?
Because I do make a slight exception when it comes to helicopters. They're not as fast as fast movers. They're instantly sitting ducks and can hardly escape bandits once spotted. With them available we can finally provide escort for transport helicopters with their air to air missiles. The whole helicopters' game will change and thus make fighters think twice before jumping them. We might start seeing more helicopter vs helicopter scenarios with such a variety of modules.

The AH-64D is not going to be added (will be added to exceptional missions and events though).

The AH-1 (I think -1W) will be added.

7- Sometimes you update a mission, put it back online and then things are missing or malfunctioning. What's going on?
I run the server on ED's dedicated servers. When a mission goes online for the first time or back again after an update or a fix added the dedicated server seems to fail to load the mission's file in its entirety. That's why you see B-52's active, although the objective for them to become active hasn't been completed yet. That's why you sometimes can't rearm or see a certain type of weapons. Sometimes some ground units including air defences are missing, etc.

8- Any plans on adding the A-4 mod?
As a module, ASAP! As a mod, no. Because a mod would force everyone to get it and to constantly have it up to date, otherwise flying on the server would be limited to only those who have the mod installed. Besides, I've had some bad experience with some mods installed in the past and I'm dealing with enough bugs already. I can't risk having more of that.

9- Any plans on adding new maps?
Maybe. Eventually, it depends on how popular the maps are and how many players own them.

As much as I'd love to do that for all the Harrier pilots out there but unfortunately the version of the Harrier we have is of the late 90's.

Great news! I like silhouette iff environments the most + dynamic. And we are expecting two more cold war era airframes hopefully soon, one for each side, Mig19 and A7. Slowly getting there.

The A7 fits well, I guess. I'll just have to find some balance for all the modules included regarding the available slots.

Add mandatory SRS to the rules and It's gonna be perfect

Can't force anyone into anything. Besides most players prefer srs anyways.

Excellent, I love servers that are prepared to go with restricted historical planesets, rather than just trying to have all of them in . .

 

 

I shall be patronising this server.

 

All of the aircraft in DCS were in service before 1991, sooo yeah... this is more of a 47-70 (if you remove the Su-25 and A-10A)

 

You can call it Vietnam War :D, because it ain't the real cold one for sure. Don't see why realistic payloads and aircraft for those years can't be made, but this is up to the server owner :thumbup:

 

Don't get me wrong I did like the server (before trees killing my fps became a thing) and I still like the F-5 vs MiG-21 setup, but I wouldn't go around calling it cold war (yes, I know it has always been called like that). Cheers will definitely be playin' on it again when I upgrade my GPU.

You're totally right, I'm aware of that. That's why I wrote this in the main post:

 

"In this dynamic campaign the focus will be mainly on the MiG-21 and the F-5 and other modules that I see suitable for the scenario I have. That being said jet planes like the Su-27, Su-33, F-15, MiG-29, M-2000, F-18 and F-14 will be excluded to simply give third generation fighters/interceptors or planes of an inferior generation the chance of dogfighting rather than having BVR aerial battles most of the time."

So basically all servers are Cold War kinda thing. Which means if I'd call it "Cold War 1947 - 1991" I wont be deviating all that much from the reality of it :smilewink:

Uh...

 

"First flight of a modified AV-8B in night attack from was on June 26th, 1987. Deliveries to the USMC began in September of 1989 to VMA-214 at Yuma."

 

"Marine Attack Squadron 214 became the first squadron to introduce the Night Attack capability into the Unit Deployment Program in October 1991, by deploying 20 Night Attack Harriers to Iwakuni, Japan, for seven months

Follow-up units based out of Yuma received their Night Attack forms by the end of 1992."

 

Limit the weapons (mainly JDAMS/TGP which are from the 90s) and it should fit in just fine. (although in very limited numbers given only VMA-214 had them before 1992.)

 

The "S" upgraded Viggens you have on the server are from at the earliest 1993. The AJ's specific "S" variant upgrade entered service in 1996 IIRC.

 

Even the Ka-50 entered service in 1995. I'm from around then, and I wasn't even born when the Berlin Wall fell. Don't just set an arbitrary date cutoff/other limit for one aircraft then ignore it for others, same with the Su-25T, you can just limit the ELINT/MPU gear and boom, no SEAD. Although the T variant never even entered service.

 

TLDR pick what fits, but don't cite the dates as the reason when it clearly isn't. I get that "cold war" type missions can be real delicate things but 1947-1991 is at best, a little misleading with choices like that IMO.

 

 

 

Introduction dates or selections based on balance, don't do both, that's how we ended up with War Thunder.

 

 

This may come off as "ranty", but I am legitimately trying to offer some constructive criticism.

 

 

The concept looks great though, and I look forward to seeing how it develops in the future. Is Blue-Flag style gameplay rather than the 104th the end goal of your project? As it seems similar in scope.

Got three flak holes in my wing tips, and my tanks ain't got no gas.

Mayday, mayday, mayday, I got six MiGS on my ass!

@ OxideMako:

 

It didn't feel "ranty" or anything, no worries. Critics are always welcome :thumbup:

 

YES, the idea is to have something like BlueFlag which is a masterpiece!

I'm not even close in .lua scripting to the level Ciribob operates at but I'm trying my best to get there. So far looking pretty good and as I've mentioned in my second main post there are some features that I'm still working on.

 

Good critics actually. I kinda looked up the planes on wikipedia for mainly the date of the maiden flight of each module. That would simply include all planes and helicopters. Some have had some notable and very advanced upgrades making them no longer fit in that era and some haven't. I kinda chose the aircrafts with the lesser upgrades. Which is why I said in the first main post that I'm choosing only those that I see fit in my scenario and not the actual Cold War scenario.

 

I could limit the Harrier's weapons but then again it would be the only plane with night attack capabilities. The Ka-50 being Red can counter that because it can also strike at night. Writing that now kinda made me think "hey! Why not? limited operations at night where only the helicopters and the Harrier can operate might be a cool thing while the rest of aircrafts is on the ground waiting for their turn in the morning!". Hmmm... Fancy thought!

That's why critics are welcome :smilewink:

 

It's a work in progress and also did mention that players will have the saying in future plans regarding modules.

 

Fly safe!

When all the other Vietnam Era jets and helicopters come out you can really go ahead and do a Vietnam (-1970s) type of mission

Vietnam map with all/most Vietnam modules? COUNT me in for putting together a dynamic campaign for that!
