Not sure if it's possible or not, but a carrier with functional elevators. You would have to spawn on the lower level and be brought up by the 'crew' to the flight deck for take off.

It would be quite exciting~!!

They'd have to do the hangar deck scenery....

I would love functionable catapultes, especially the lateral ones!

Did they use those during WWII?

Yup, watch the movie "Midway". Has an actual vid of a SBD being launched from the hangar deck off a catapult...

S!

Didn't Oleg comment in ORR that this was in the works? I believe he said it was a planned feature, provided all goes well. When spawning in a carrier in a Df server, you'd appear below deck, and have to ride the elevator up to take off.

Does anyone else remeber this?

Interesting comment adlabs6. I've been thinking about this very subject. In a coop, the location of the planes would most likely be spotted back on the fantail awaiting launch. However, if (and this might be a big IF) the carriers are available in a DF server, the place you spawn to might well be forward of the barriers (approximately abeam the island). Again, if CVs are going to be in DF servers, a whole new "etiquette" must evolve amongst the player public to preclude spawning on top of each other, as well as landing on top of each other! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now... did the pilots bring the aircraft up on the elevators or was that done by the maintenance crews?

I don't know, but I definiteky suspect the latter.

Cheers,
Fred

Agreed, the pilots didn't actually get in the airplane until it was brought to the deck by the crew I beleive. However, I think it would be quite ok to have the pilot 'ride-along' for this. As already mentioned it could save alot of hassle with cramped decks in DF servers.

Probably good to ensure that you have multiple carriers for dogfight servers so that the decks aren't too crowded.

Still...under deck ops would be interesting!
