Is it possible to avoid Carrier Collisions by this method?:

Suggestion:

To program the sim: Have a "Light" come on the Tower "when ever there are more than 1 Aircraft on Deck", or if there is an aircraft in front off him?

This would alert a pilot on-deck if there is another aircraft on-deck. He could then power down, or kill his engine and listen for the deck to be clear for takeoff.

Coding some sort of LSO and Deck Boss (even if just in some type of notification) would be an incredible improvement in one of the main shortcomings in this sim.

A RED light - GREEN light for each player acting as a virtual deck boss alone would be excellent.

And I'll chime in with my support for even a primitive deck control system. But sadly it's too late, as it seems any further development of IL-2 is not in the cards...

True, true. All we can do now is hope to get a bird in the air to "act" as an airboss for the rest.

Boy them decks get crowded sometimes...

At the moment what you can do is send a radio message to tower asking for clearance to takeoff. The tower will either clear you because you really can take off or tell you no its not clear to take off.
