Default Is this an AI Error?

I have been playing around for a few days with a mission and I have found this to be a little annoying.

No 3 flight does not join the formation like the other two flight do.

Initially I had left each flight at Average, but after some testing tried at Veteran and still the same. Each of the flights are "anchored" to my flight as I am the lead ship and as you can see Blue flight are not tightly formed as the rest of the squadron.

My apologies if this has been noted before. But I thought I'd mention it at least.

Also love the idea of the screenshot folder to find the 'grabs'

Maybe it's a measure to prevent the good old bomber AI demolition derby???

We usually ask that you post the mission so we can try and address the particular issue(s).

As requested here is the mission.

The flight in question during the whole mission does not close in.

It takes ~ 5mins for the whole group to form up.

You'll notice that waypoint 2 is still a 'normfly' waypoint as I intend using the map for further footage for a video clip and will be using the Drop On My Command order.

And I have noticed that having one flight out of position does not give a "nice drop pattern" for when the bombs hit. I would like it to look good

Thanks guys.

I have just been playing around with different A/C types and have noticed a few differences with where planes will form up or not at all.

I'll post some screenies soon of what I mean.

Or have a look at what happens when you change the A/C to an A-20C, or flight 1 = B-25J and flight 2,3,4 to B-24's or B-17's...

I ran your mission in the FMB. When it started, I put my plane on Autopilot. Two of the bombers shortly crashed.

Then I took it upon myself to make a few changes to the mission. I did not change any of the lead flight's speed , altitude or waypoints. I simply gave the other flights their own waypoints.

Load my mission into the FMB and start it. Immediately engage the Autopilot on your plane. Then give your Squadron the command to Tighten Formation. (You can also experiment with changing formations as per the options.) Check out the formation in external view. (Speed the mission up as it takes a little time for them to form up.

See the two screenshots I took after everyone formed up. Enjoy.

*I don't have WinZip so I could not upload my version of the mission. Just take the text below and place it in a blank mis file to play it.

Thanks for the mission mate and your help.

I have taken a ntrk and as you can see I am trying to use this mission to make a video clip, the first thing I noticed in this was the same as I had previously tried.

When on the bomb run the other flights then overtake the lead flight. Up until then the formation side of it is great.

And even when I set each waypoint target to the lead flight, bingo... flight number three jumps out of whack.

What I am trying to achieve is a nice tight formation. As my first screen shot shows that flight three should by all purposes be tighter in.

I'm keen to hear any other things that you can think of. And any other mission builders or TD would be great.

Cheers

Ps: I run a free programme called Jzip http://www.jzip.com/

Hi,
I'll investigate this problem but it will have to wait a little, I understand that this might be a big problem for you but we have to deal with critical things first.

Thanks for the reply mate,

I fully understand that other things are critical and will be a priority. In no way did I want to sound like I was 'tossing my frock' over the issue.

It was something that I had not noted previously and wanted to bring it to the IL2 communities notice so hopefully a work around could be found.

I am very grateful for all the hard work you TD boys put into keeping this great sim going and getting better.

Once again thanks for looking into the problem. and I look forward to the next release you guys make available to us.

~S~

I checked this problem and it exists in older game versions too. We will have to rework the formations for 4.12 a little.
