I have not modded that map. bud is the original author of that Battle of Britain mod. It has some changes in planes physics, some other modifications I don't understand.

Re: Dogfight a lot

Is there any chance to urge you to add the original Battle of Britain in objective mode in the list instead of this modded one?

Re: Dogfight a lot

My modded Battle of Britain map has still some little problems to be fixed. When there is only one or two spawn points left, it is a spawn raping fest, you can hardly get to the planes.

The air plane spawn would be much more preferable for this server.

Sorry nameless, you're much more experienced than me in dogfight as far as I know, but we're speaking about trolls and baserapers.
Making air-spawn planes would give an easy target to baserapers. And there won't always be admins around, so I think that air-spawn is a very bad idea. And besides, air-spawn planes can easily be confused with driven planes.

And even besides, I maintain that making air-spawn planes won't let players choose their plane. It's not in the interest of players and I invite you, and tuia, to reconsider this option.

Re: Dogfight a lot

You can avoid baseraping if you spawn planes high up in the air so they are not reachable to other planes. Let's say you have 3 spawn points to choose, you can make for example 1 spawn just for BF109 planes in air, another for Zeros and another for Stukas. But you can't prevent airfield baseraping without a deathbubble and that has its downside, because you can use it to escape from a pursuing enemy plane. If you add AA guns to airfield, pilots will have to take down baseraping planes first and then hope they are lucky to get up in air without being shot down by other attacking planes.

its a bit complex, BoB is a addon (fanmade?)map witch dont have much wiggleroom for modding, had to do alot of workarounds.

it never got much real play testing so there was bound to be things that needed tweaking

if you need to you can "borrow" some extra soldier spawns from the AI and place them somewhere close to the hangars.

Re: Dogfight a lot

Rule n°11 : Ban joint forever from the server, if he chooses the other team than mine wink

bud wrote:

Air-spawn allows baseraping. It's a fact. Besides it doesn't allow players to choose their planes.



No I disagree with air-spawn : I understand what you said, tuia, about air-spawn. But it doesn't allow players to choose their plane.
Imagine yourself. You're new on a server, you have 10 spawn points that you can choose. You don't know which one is linked with which plane. You just want the bf109. You spawn, it gives you the Corsair. You decide to bail and die. Then you choose another point, it gives you the SBD. Will you do it until it gives you the bf109 ? A lot will be fed up.

I think the mod in BoB is good. But add death bubbles around (over) the main bases. After all, dogfights have to be in the middle of the map, not close to the main bases... If you hunt enemies too close from their main bases, then it's understandable they come back to main to repair (loss of height and speed). That's a deal... If you really want to hunt, then wait that they got height enough, and way enough, from base, to attack them. That is the perfect deal to avoid baserapers...

No death bubble would mean that you allow to kill in "grey zones" of the rules : When a player just took off, then you can kill him without being considered as a baseraper...
If you build a dogfight server, please avoid us having to argue about the grey zones of baseraping.

Guys, I made the topic, I announced some rules that were good for a dogfight server (avoid the rules about nameless and joint that were joke, ofc). Do a server just as I told, and then we'll speak about what has to be changed. Please trust me. Do it as I said, and let's have a try.

Re: Dogfight a lot

...

Then prove it. Explain how air-spawn planes may be prevented from base attacks ? Or planes only spawn when the player spawn ?

And if you're new, and you want a specific plane, how you choose the point where you spawn ?

Re: Dogfight a lot

I checked it. I admit this is a nice job. I didn't expect a carrier in the air, and I didn't know that the height limit was moddable.

In this case, I agree with you smile
Even if I'll miss taking off a bit :s

Re: Dogfight a lot

!bbase1day ziba big_smile

Well, everything having been told, let's make a sum um :

1. Gazala and/or El Alamein
2. Maps TDM only
3. Air-spawn carrier, at the highest limit of the map to avoid baseraping
4. All kinds of planes available for both sides
5. No flak, no other vehicle
6. Limit the number of players to 40 max
7. Sudden-death at bail
8. Equipment limited to wrenches

Did I forget something ? If not then the hardest is left : making the server...
Sure that I won't be really useful for this... Good luck and make something great so that we can fly soon wink

Cheers'
