i was playing in a scripted dog fight server an had an idea, as of now u can set the number of planes for each team but that applies to all the planes. like every plane shot down could be the same plane, would it be possable to limit the number of a certian plane like the blue team has 55 planes 7 La-7,15 IL-2,13 hurri,10 P-51 and 10 P47 or something like that i think this would give the host the ability to more acuratly modle the real battle feild. for exsample the LA-7 was one of the best front line fighter(or so it says in the object viewer)but like any high performance machine this also made it more exspensive so there would be less of that fighter. well thats my idea i think it would be cool.

Last I saw it could be divided between 2 classes, fighters and bombers, so I guess the ability is there to seperate to individual types, whould just require a bunch more coding.

Also I know GG has one map where on one of the airfields only one person can spawn a plane, not sure if that limit can be made greater than one, but this could be used to restrict the number of a certain type in the air.

i was thinking per air base would be the way to go then u could simulate a certian squad or wing(not sure on terms)if u had the info u couold simulate the (for exsample)the 53rd fighter groupe V.S. JG11(just guessing on squad nubers so dont wig)also as some one posted in another thread bombers get screwed because if u dont get him on the firts run respawn the attack again, if the number of certian craft where limited u would run out of fighters but also would run out of "good" fighters to if the squad only had 5 P-51"s and the rest of the fighters where hurris and P-40 then you use 4 P-51's to get the one He-11 youre team is screwed the rest of the map so it would force people to be more carfull even more so than just spliting in to fighter and bommer.

We actually had an older map that had a specific amount of Fighters and Bombers for the Axis and the Reds (I say reds, as it was a polish map) had only fighters (P-11's IIRC).

This map was won consistently by the reds even thought they were outclassed by the axis machines because they wouldn't focus on the ground targets. Their fighters would all get killed and they would have a large number of bombers left.

I believe the map was set to cycle if one class or the other were completely eliminated...there was also a time limit placed on this map to, somewhat, force the issue and lend a sense of urgency.

This map was frustrating for the reds if the Axis actually flew in with a few bombers (both He 111's and Stuka's) at high altitude with fighter cover. Inevitibly though, that would not happen. There would be a few bombers and a slew of fighters that would try to turn with the P-11's!

Despite the flawed tactics used most of the time, I really enjoyed this map. I think if it would have remained in the rotation the Axis fliers (myself included) would have developed and adhered to successful tactics that would have better utilized the time limitations.

Just a thought and to let you know this IS definitely a possibility. Maybe not to the exact extent as you describe, but to a different enjoyable level at least.

Ill bump it! It's a great idea and would add a bit of realism to dogfight arenas. It would also be pretty cool for setting up squad tourneys.

Oh well, gets a bump from me. Although I dont think 1C has been here in a while to look at any of the posts....
