annoying too with automated map rotation.I'm just back from a srcipted server where a had spent almost 4 hrs. Five times exactly when I have enemy in my sight, suddenly "map rotation, loading new mission", it really went on nerves! Also I got damaged, and my Me109E has almost no fuel, after 1/2 hrs blue base only few clickc afar - "loading new mission". I just had to leave being on the verge of nervou breakdown (map rotatin should occur after 75 min as stated in briefing, but more often then not it went round after no more then 30 min)
OK rant mode off, just want to say taht scripetd servers are GREAT but it needs some tweaking....

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

I have been on servers with both. Either get all the targets or time runs out. Whatever comes first.

Are there any that, let us say, give one side targets to bomb, and a time limit to do it?

Say Red has to defend said target for a set time. Doesn't matter how many planes Blue shoots down. They don't destroy the target they lose.

Sounds like a really big map. Most scripted servers try and focus the battle into a small grid of sectors (even if its a big map) so that things happen fairly quickly before the map is rotated.

most of the time if 1 side reads the brief and does what is asked and the other side doesn't, the map will cycle quickly.

Bingo...had a person say this afternoon to me on Mudmovers about fast map cycle.....it's on a 2 hr timed rotation now (for about a week) or objectives completed. People who were very familiar had it (1 map Bastogne) cycle in about 1/2 hour http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I'll add even more ground targets and add it to server.
