Hi Mako, sure there is - if you're talking about scripted single missions. You'll need to refer to the contents of the _targets.ini file in the Terrain folder to get the x,y coordinate of the airfield from where you want to depart. e.g. in WOV, Da Nang airbase is defined at map coords x=636000, y=492000.

 

Based on the x,y coordinates you define in the single mission script, you can even define whereabouts on the airfield you start the mission - e.g. on the ramp, or at the end of the airfield, or on some parking area etc etc.

 

If you setup the wind direction correctly at the start of the mission script you can also define the direction of takeoff for any AI aircraft who also use that airfield (i.e. AI takeoff into wind, so a value of 180 denotes AI takeoff heading due North, and vice versa for a value of 360).

 

For Da Nang airbase, with StartWindDirection=0.0, 3 x AI aircraft can be defined to start at x=636000, y=493150, heading=180, and your aircraft can be defined at x=636199, y=493319, heading=280, which denotes that you are lined up behind AI aircraft #3 on the taxiway, while the rest of the leading flight taxi and depart ahead of you.

 

Does this answer your question?

 

Regards, comrpnt.
