Simple question, pls excuse my ignorance,
Can searchlights be incorporated into multiplayer maps so that they work.
Thx

they only work between certain times though - something like 12.00 midnight and 4 in the morning (something like that)

Yup They work just fine for multiplayer.
Looks very kewl.
Maybe its my imagination but when you start shooting they seem to try and track you down. Very nice indeed.

Just make yourself a df mission with searchlights in using the full mission builder.
Then set the time to like 0300. You can host it offline and fly over the nemy base where you put the lights and have a peek and them, if they dont peek at you first lol.

I created a mission with searchlights in it which I posted to mudmovers.com The mission is called Bombing Stalingrad and is available in the multiplayer downloads section. You can play it alone just fine.

If you don't know how to use the FMB, unzip the mission into a coop folder and use the multiplay option on the main menu. This works fine even if you play alone.

If you know how to use the FMB you can unzip the file to a single player folder (you are flying a Yak). you need to open the mission in FMB and tick the "Player" box for one of the planes. You can even delete planes 2-4 if you want to fly solo.

I threw in barrage balloons to make it even more interesting.

The searchlights do search for you. When one finds you a second and then a third will try and lock on. Pretty cool.

I love searchlights. They make this game look so real and glamorous at night.

Yes they can. I recently made a dogfight map with them...set at midnight.

If only my router would let me host /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
