The page provides a breakdown of all the updates/ changes made to the server and the mission set. Expand each section in order to see the updates made for that version.
Adjusted flak to account for recent ED updates to BOFORs guns
Minor updates for improved LotATC functionality
All Player P47s in France updated to have the Benajmin Mayo skin with invasion stripes
MAJOR MISSION UPDATES to all missions.
In order to facilitate the introduction of LotATC as the server’s Air Group Controllers / Ground Controlled Interception tool, the following changes are made to all missions:
The JTAC roles have been updated to provide ONLY visual information (no F10 map icons) at a specific set of airfield locations. This is designed to allow players to act as airfield traffic control, via Combined Arms, using the “Fire Control Bunkers” as Control Towers.
F10 Map Fog of War has been added. Unit visibility is set to allies only. All units EXCEPT for the “driveable” units are set to hidden. The only units the JTAC will see on the F10 map are the ground units which they can take physical control of. Aircraft will not be visible on the F10 map for JTAC roles any more.
The bullseyes for both sides have been moved to the same location. Mention of that location has been added to the missions briefing. Placement of the bullseye is dependent on the specific target and unit orientation for that mission date.
All AI formation pilots have been renamed with an “AI” prefix. A full description of the new
RADAR and CONTROLLER functions is available here: https://stormofwar.net/server-radar-aircraft-control/
Weather has been updated for all missions. Turbulent air will be present on all missions where there is wind above 3 m/s. Turbulence will scale based on wind speed and historical conditions for that day. Turbulence will be most obvious at low levels and reduces towards 5000ft/ 1800m. Flying at low altitudes will therefore be increasingly difficult on windy days.
P51 blk 30s all replaced with blk 25s Wingman
spawns at Evreaux all moved closer to RWY 06 threshold
Checked and fixed aircraft names at Beuzeville
Fixed formations and skins at Ford airfield
Changed spawn locations of flights at Ford
Updated some ground units to better reflect country vehicles and tank mix
Added new message to mission endings, suggesting that player leave and rejoin server
Allied RADAR / JTAC interface adjusted slightly to remedy an un-wanted blind spot
All A20 raids adjusted to better suit how DCS treats these assets
Complete re-work of flak at LSM, St. Pierre, Beuzeville and St.Croix.
Fixed Utah beach coastal bofors unit placement, guns are no longer sunk into craters.
Thanks to Saint, Kondor, Wiggy and Burrito (Discord IDs) for testing the flak
1. All morning missions now start after 0500. This should mean that the AI no longer stays in “sleep” mode for the entire mission. Flak should now fire. AI should react to hostile assets. Once ED fix the AI, these can go back to their proper start times (pre sunrise)
2. Flak layouts at LSM, Brucheville, St Pierre du Mont, St Croix all updated slightly to check gun positions and skill levels. This is a temporary measure whilst we have some people (hopefully) testing some new flak ideas.
