Hello.

First of all I'd like to say that you developers are doing a beautiful job on this flight sim. It's one of the best games I have ever purchased.

Here's my little idea.

When you finish a coop mission or everyone dies it gets pretty annoying to have to reload the whole mission, have everyone select their planes, and try again. Can a "refly" button be added just like in single player? I want to just be able to hit refly and the game starts again.

It would make life so much easier for many people I'd assume.

Looking forward to an answer and thank you very much for your time!

Are you talking from perspective of HOST or Client?

If you are hosting, all you have to do is end current mission and pick another one without losing crowd and going back to the lobby. As far as client conserned, they in the hands of the host http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Did i understand you correctly?

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

Hi.

Well no what I meant was that it sucks to have to end the mission and choose the SAME one again, have to load it again, then pick planes, and hit fly. What I want is for the host to be able to just hit "refly" when the mission is failed so that we can restart the same mission immediately.

Thanks for the reply. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Oh i see, but since i am hosting COOPs on regular bases, this wont fly IMO. Reason is rather simple, most of the people will not wait till COOP ends and leave as they get shot down and to say more, they wont fly same mission again. It`s not a bad idea, but just wont work, taking human factor under consideration.

But wait..

What about those that play with friends? Those that want to play together? Or those that don't make missions that take a very long time to complete?

I know I'm not the only one that makes simple missions like a group of 109's running into some hurricanes etc. etc. Those short missions can't be made anywhere else and we usually keep trying until we beat the mission. If we all die then it would be nice if we can just hit "refly" so we can restart quickly.

If it's not a hard thing to add then why not do it? Not like I'm requesting to add a really huge gameplay change or a new plane. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I didn`t say it`s a bad idea http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and yes it will work on squad/friends level http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Spread the word to who's in charge and see if it can be added. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
