Are that two people?

 

With a pretty lousy mission/kill ratio :biggrin:

 

Not if You are a Pilot and RIO of an F-4J in Vietnam........

All pilots who score 5 kills in campaign become aces and get their name known. Historical aces are a different thing though...

I wonder, how many years will it take TK to add a newspaper reports of aces being shot down. :biggrin:

Historical "Known Aces" can display under 5 Kills. Even "0" for just a named Pilot like John McCain. And if You still have the "Kill" Entry in the Decals.INI of the Skin, It will display the Kill Marking.

 

So, You basically can have every Aircrew that shot down a Mig in Game........

 

Each Squadron in Campaign can have from 01-99 "Known Aces".

A "Known Aces" Rating automatically goes to 100. But that is 100 of what the overall Expirence Rating of the Nation is. For Example, If I have a VPAF Pilot that is a "Known Ace" his Rating is 100. But if the NVietnam Pilot Expirence Rating is 50, then that Ace is 100% of the 50.

BTW.....Osprey and Squadron/Signal Books are great resources for getting Historical Aces and Mig Killer Names.

Also, This would work for Helicopter Pilots. If You made U.S.Army a Nation. It could have known Helicopter Pilots Names as "Known Aces" also.....

This can only be done with First Generation post Patch Oct.08 and SF2 Series.

Still wouldn't work. YAP1 and 2 is for User Generated Missions. The above is for "Campaigns" in a ThirdWire Series Sim. YAP would have to give up alot of their "Goodies" to include this.

 

ThirdWire Sim with "Known Aces", around $30 Bucks max.

 

YAP2 limited to User Generated Missions at $160+.....

 

 

Pretty easy Math.

This looks like an excellent little tweak to the names listing to bring up the authenticity. Thanks again for sharing KB.
