View Full Version : Waypoint indicator question

01-23-2005, 04:01 PM
We all know about the instrument that always (but maybe not realisticly) points to the next waypoint in coop-servers.
But where does it point to in DF servers? I could do some experimenting... but do anyone know?

Could it be cos there are no waypoints in DF?
As there's no mission....?

But tell me, what instrument is that?

Fool, it's the second needle on the German (and some US?) repeater compasses.

IIRC, someone said it points to your spawn point in DF servers.

Does anyone know how this instrument worked in real life?

In WW2 it would point towards a radiobeacon.
Each beacon transmited on it's own frequency and a radio in the plane would be tuned to that frequency.

Depending on the hardware in the plane and the beacon the instrument could work automatically or require more attention.

But the waypointidicator in the LW-planes in the game allways points to the next waypoint, even though the waypoint is far inside enemy territory. Is this a feature that just applies to this game, and not like it was in real life?

applies only to the game.

btw,not only German planes have that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
