Title: BoS server
Post by: _AH_Sandhog on October 02, 2019, 04:06:55 AM
With Z's help, we created a dedicated server. I stupidly was unable to logon with it because I had the wrong password. But I fixed it today.
Name is Sandhog practice server. try it and check out.

S! Sandy,
I was able to get in...

Any chance you can put new Allied A/C in there.

The thought of a Yak-1 over a P-51 is tough right now..

Good fps about 60 which is what I am getting in other servers.

S!

~S~ Gang. Ive added another mission that DW created, Moscow Autumn, after doing a little editing to how the AI aircraft spawn for you to enjoy. Sorry I havent had the server up regularly. Ive had my mind on other things going on thathas taken up alot of my time and energy. Ill try to do better. Anywho. The server now has 4 missions to fly. A 5th from DW is coming. And dont forget to thank DW for creating them. S!

The only planes are the ones that DW set when he created the missions. Ill go in sometime today and edit them to have those planes. I DO need a list of them though.

i=Ive taken a shot at adding Repair/Refuel to the missions. Their located at the spawn bases and if you come across a lone truck at an airbase. You can land there and use it. Let me know if theres nay problems with it and Ill look in to it. The link below explain how to use it.

Zulu,

No truck on the map that is currently running..
Title: Re: BoS server
Post by: _AH_z5o on October 05, 2019, 06:03:49 PM
Ya, I couldnt add them if someone is on that mission. Ill add them now

 The default keys are:

    RCtrl+A - Rearm
    RCtrl+F - Refuel

UPDATE: the repair/refuel seems to be workiing now. It looks like if you land at the spawn base your aircraft will auto repair. Im not sure about the rearm though. Youll have to play with it and see if it does it. HOWEVER, if you land somewhere where there is a repair truck. You have to enter the command to refuel or repair.  Mind you, this is still a work in progress so it may not work perfectly.

I was messing with this..

repair are auto

Re-arming took about 3 mins for re-arming.  I forget to try but I think you need to hit another key to "reload"

The order was

ammo, rocket tubes, bombs, rockets.. 

Re-fueling, you need to hold down the RCtl + F

Cool stuff

I have added the P-51, P-47, P-38 and the Tempest to ALL missions. S!

I was making a practice room on the Rheineland map and noticed when I added the 262 to those older maps I forgot to add it to all the triggers. You have to add all the aircraft types to each one otherwise they will not trip the trigger. Same would need to be done for the new allied types.

Hmm, I looked and tryed to figure out what exactly I need to change but couldnt find what your talking about DW. I may need your help with that one night or something.

Perhaps I can illustrate.

Each moving vehicle convoy and train has a complex trigger which causes it to start moving when one of our aircraft enter it's radius.

It looks like this :

(https://i.postimg.cc/59Z5wYMg/Trigger.png)

You have to select exactly what will cause the trigger to do it's thing. To do that, you select the complex trigger, then right click and select Advanced Properties from the menu. You then get a screen like this, the box I have highlighted is what you need to manipulate.

(https://i.postimg.cc/1XPmQrqM/Advanced.png)

So you click the little button beside Objects Script list and it opens the full list.

(https://i.postimg.cc/HW457SBY/Planes.png)

So on this screen the stuff in the left list is what will trip the trigger and start the convoy\train moving. The stuff in the right list is all the various objects and vehicles and what not you can use to trigger things. Since these practice rooms have all the WWII aircraft flyable in them, I added each of them to the left list. Its here you need to add the new aircraft, the Me-262, P-38, P-51 and Tempest. You'll see they have multiple entries sometimes, not sure what the -c means. I just added the first entry for each plane, like the p38j25 one I have selected here. Once they are added people flying those planes will trip the triggers as intended.

I could update the maps and re-upload them, but I think you said you had modified them for the dserver? So I don't know if that would help you.

~S~ Gang,
 Sad day indeed gents. Im sorry to say Im selling my server. I had someone make an offer of $500 which is about $200 more than I had in it and to be honest. Thats more money Ive had in my pocket at one time in a VERY long time and I could really use it right now. Im going to try to figure out how to save DW's missions before removing all my personnel software so that someone that wishes to build a server can run them they can. Ive already removed everything else I had on it, but, Im waiting on removing iL2 BoS just encase something goes wrong with the sale til the last minute. Sorry for this guys, I know how much you enjoyed having the server there if you felt like flying, but, thats a house payment or some other bill paid. Maybe sometime in the future I can build another one to run a server on when things are not so tight. Once again, sorry guys. I really hate to do this, but, it just cant be helped. S!
