  1. Are there many in Australia, as I'm away at a bike ride 13-15 may, (unless we're washed out which is looking 25 % posssible)? Maybe a time that suits Berlin (4 hours earlier?) and if I'm available I just have to get out of bed a little early? Don
  2. I have never thought of the comms issue, yes very 'cheating'. The two aspects I usually find troublesome are 1/ enemy aircraft that make contact within gun range, if they are not already in gun arc they don't seem to engage - they won't start to dogfight, and 2/ no one tells you that enemy shells are hitting you or cannon fire wizzing past your canopy. I'll ponder this for a while, probably a long while
  3. Maybe you have better things to do? But if it is quick then I'd think it's an improvement.
  4. At least it sounds easy to fix? Does harpoon discard empty external fuel tanks?
  5. I was pondering fiddling with gun arcs as this seems to be a prob with aircraft, or having ago at a dll to take the micro management out of dog fights. With multi ship groups I haven't worked out a good ploy, but tight groups seem to work best? I had a surprise last night when I thought I was sneaking up behind a wounded Ise (Japanese battleship) and in the blind spot for her big guns, she did a 180 and pounded my three light cruisers to bits. Because I wasn't expecting it, and had other things to attend to, I missed seeing her change of course.
  6. Do many people play or write a lot of WWII scenarios? In pacific ocean theatre naval and naval air actions were extremely important. Also I like how there is so little electronics, radar and the like, it's very seat of the pants stuff.
  7. I'm scratching head and wondering what other load out "weapons" are either dumped (external fuel?) or simply gone when depleted. Things like external comms pods, cannons, maybe other stuff is going to stay in place. So what else is external and consumed or jettisoned?
  8. I suppose a few heads will roll, quietly ...
  9. to me it looks totally unfair fro F35s, on burner they're hardly any faster than on military 😆 and not very fair for red side either is there any history of why it is so?
  10. I bet that took a bit of finding 😁
  11. Hi Hawkeye, Can you drag the main box to another part of the screen to see if the percentage dialog is hidden under it (for some reason)? Don
  12. I hope that helped, woof.
  13. I'm going to guess you need to go to Latest Beta ( ) and download the latest beta files.
  14. After Action Report *SPOILER ALERT* Using the surface group pre plotted course as my search zone I launched all my land based fixed wings into asw search patrols (using F3 formation tool) to cover most of my search zone concentrating in the eastern 2/3s. I used my land based helos to patrol the western 1/3 (or there abouts). All but four ship based asw helos were put into search sectors mid way out in the pre defined formation, and most of the frigates came out one ring to dash and creep about the formation. Using Enrique's tip I cranked up the time acceleration pulling it back when contacts were had. In my last but one command I got a severe reprimand for torpedoing a whale (lucky it was kept out of the papers) and the admiral of the court marshal pointed out the consequences of sinking a neutral submarine so this time around I made certain of all contacts before letting fly any fish. This did use up a lot of sonar buoys but it also meant that if I got a Red Contact I had plenty air units to pummel it. I generally prosecute each contact by sending in 3 - 4 air units hopefully including at least one of the fixed wing that carry the best sonar buoy. The P8s and the old Froggy 'Antiques' have beauties. I use a combination of direct 'attack' F1 commands, and plotting courses to the centre or selected part of the contact uncertainty area then use Toolbox ASW patrol to encircle the area. Once a solid contact proves an exact location of a confirmed enemy I again use the Toolbox 'cover' command to get on top of the quarry and either drop a torp or if I have fish out hunting then hover/loiter to maintain the fix. After a sink I'll usually set up another Toolbox ASW patrol around the victim looking for any possible friends. Caution paid off, no reprimands and in fact a commendation The following is an extract form the AARdll report logging our actions: [Initial Start] Actual Date=26/02/2022 20:50:37 Scenario=C:\Matrix Games\HUCE\addons\medc\2003\2022-02 DYNAMIC MANTA 2022.sco [Log] session start=21 Feb 2022, 16:00:00 Actual Date=26/02/2022 20:50:45 Event=21 Feb 2022, 19:13:50 1 x SH-90A NFH 13 (ASW) ready on the ACS Carlo Margottini F592 Event=21 Feb 2022, 19:14:10 1 x SH-90A NFH 13 (ASW) ready on the ACS Alpino F594 Event=21 Feb 2022, 19:14:20 1 x SH-90A NFH 13 (ASW) ready on the ACS Carlo Margottini F592 Event=21 Feb 2022, 19:14:30 1 x Caiman NFH 13 (ASW) ready on the ACS Provence D652 Event=21 Feb 2022, 19:15:50 1 x AB.212ASW 84 (ASW-2) ready on the ACS Aegeon F460 Event=21 Feb 2022, 19:53:19 Group AGA 163 degree turn delayed 82 seconds; Group ATA=5, OldCourse=136, NewCourse=333 Event=21 Feb 2022, 20:01:00 1 x S-70B1 HS.23 03 (ASW-LR) ready on the ACS Navarra F85 Event=21 Feb 2022, 20:01:40 1 x S-70B1 HS.23 03 (ASW-LR) ready on the ACS Navarra F85 Event=21 Feb 2022, 20:02:40 1 x S-70B1 HS.23 03 (ASW-LR) ready on the ACS Alvaro de Bazan F101 Event=21 Feb 2022, 20:04:00 New contact: 00U SS Katsonis (T214) Method: SONOBUOY Event=21 Feb 2022, 20:07:27 The Papanikolis S120 unit ZW000, a Katsonis (T214) class, is sinking!
