I sometimes run a modest little server on Ubisoft, up to 8 players. The strange behaviour I refer to is why do one or two players join the game, only to take no part in it? They either fly off a great distance or height. I even witnessed one who got into an A20 and constantly took off and landed in the water deliberatly, making no attempt to join combat! Anyone have any ideas? I don't like to kick players, especially beginners (if that is what some are), but it bugs me these people take up bandwidth that someone else would like to use.
Strange indeed! Enough of my moan, anyone have similar problems?

Comparative flight testing, navigation practice, using your server for training and if the guy in the A-20 was doing any of this he probably didn't want to bother flying back to base.

I used to do that a lot. The reason i did it was for training and practice formation flying. Why not make ur own game? Just to have a feeling that there is combat going on i guess and that we could swoop down and target fighters whenever we were done with our training.

I can understand take off and landing, especially on a carrier, but forgetting the carrier, wierd.......... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Yeah Trumper, I ask for an explanation every time, invariably I get no response (maybe that they do not speak English) at all. They just keep flying along, doing nothing in particular.
As for the guy in the A20, the server was set to spawn in mid-air at 1000m, then he just dived straight to water level, levelled out and ditched. Dozens of times! I just cannot understand it. Still, as long as he was happy!

Just looked at your awesome artwork Kristorf, amazing stuff. Some lovely Spits (my favourite aircraft).
