View Full Version : PITA bug with the Arado 234

If you try and spawn at higher altitudes, say almost anywhere in those maps with mountains, the RATO packs drop off as you spawn.

add this to the list fixes please?

I noticed once, just once in several attempts of flying this misn, that spawned AI arados had their rocket packs and kept them the whole time I watched them, for several min anyway.

If you spawn above 300m the Rato packs should drop off. When you take off from a field, the Rato packs will remain on your aircraft below 300m or until their fuel runs out. This isn't a bug, but is how they work. Although, on the other hand, I don't know how the RATO packs worked in RL. They may have had a trigger which released the packs automatically above 300m, or maybe they didn't, but this isn't a bug I don't think.

Not if the airfield you spawn on is above 300m.

i presume this is the problem Mr.Dawg is alluding to.

Correct Megile.

Any and all airfields in the mountains will drop the RATO's as you spawn. Making it impossible to take off even empty. I would have guessed they'd drop off instantly on an air start...
