Comming up against enemy aircraft in single missions way past service end year.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Noticed an odd problem in some WOE single missions I have flown, in that a few times now I have come up against enemy aircraft that are operating way past their service end year.

 

An example of which was an escort mission I flew set in 1999 where I came up against a flight of Mig-15bis. I have set the service end year for this plane at 1964. I have also come up against Mig-9s in 1967 when I have set their service end year at 1954.

 

I have noticed that many planes have an export start year but no export end year in config file, would that make a difference?

 

I have set the single mission years in the Options ini to start=1947 and end=2010.

 

It doesn't make sense to me.

 

Many thanks.

 

Mikeymead.

If they are set to exported that will happen IIRC.

 

[MissionData]

NationName=USN

ServiceStartYear=1957

ServiceEndYear=1970

AircraftRole=ATTACK

AircraftCapability=DAY_ONLY

Availability=COMMON

Exported=TRUE <-------------------------------------

ExportStartYear=1966 <-----------------------------

ExportAvailability=RARE

PrimaryRoles=CAS,STRIKE,ANTI_SHIP

SecondaryRoles=SEAD,ARMED_RECON,RECON,FAC

NormalMissionRadius=536

MaxMissionRadius=885

Ceiling=16154.4

MinBaseSize=SMALL

 

Then you will see aircraft like you have been.

Change exported= to "FALSE".

 

That ends the problem.

IIRC some planes have an export end year in the ini so you can allow planes to show up for other countries, but also not show up after a time.

I had a problem where non-stock planes not belonging to the stock burning sands campaign (not necessarily out of date) would show up on the campaign, and not only for the enemy. Unclean instalation maybe?

That's the "RPG" - random plane generator.

 

If the aircraft exists in the aircraft folder, they'll pop in from time to time, just to be annoying :haha: . Just randomly genearted encounters.

actually, that was my wingie in the pic. I was in an F-8. 'winders proved useless, so I dumped them all and used guns. After wayy too many overshoots, I put some flap out and took to using the vertical. I got 8 and my wingie got 2. It's amazing how they just fell apart after taking a single round of 20mm!

Yeah.. of course.. As you know most WWII Japanese fighters including the Zero were very agile but could'nt withstand battle damage.. even a well placed .50 caliber incendiary round in the lower fuselage below the cockpit could easily take out a Zero..

 

A single hit from a 20mm Colt-Browning cannon could literally blow one to smithereens.......
