View Full Version : A suggestion for OLEG, radar station.

Its is anothers of my dreams to improove the game. :-)

Lets imagine a radar station like it happened in the war, to be used in the COOPS. Simple coops and the online wars coops, like Bellum, VEF, VOW, PAndora, etc.

I am speaking about a kind of specific coops, like Bellum war in the eastern front.

One COOP of 10 x 10.

On each side, one human jump in the radar station, and in comms with the another people, by chat or by Teamspeak, ventrilo or another, keep sending information and defining tatics for the atack, and sending probable vector for the enemies formation. With the ability and kind of information they had in the real WWII.

Lets imagine a atack of He111 going to a place 20 km away from front lines. A really dangerous atack for LW.

So, the radar man, keep saying for the bombers dont go until the fighter sweep is not done. Or no enemies flying in the target area. Giving information for the Human bombers pilots, or just klicking the the airplanes and giving vetors for the AI bomb raids.

I dont know so much about radar in WWII, what kind of information they had, ranges, etc. I think they had only dots. But making a realistic one, should be funny.

You won't get much respect by spamming ORR with multiple threads. Try one post first and then see how it goes. By the way most of the future development for the game is locked down. BoB is the Future. Welcome to the Boards.

I was speaking 3 very different things. Not the same. Why should i send only one message?

PS: i dont think he read this messages, anyway

That`s why you send all suggestions to PF@1C.RU

Well for most of WW2 radar was new technology. They were hard to maintain, and needles to say big and unrelyable. (remember the legend that on Dec7 1941 the didnt know if it was B-17s or a flock of birds on the radar) They wouldent be able to tell what it was, only that there was something there. More often forward observers were used because they were accurate, could tell what was there and how many, and possibly what they were carrying)

The radar didnt even have dots it was a haze on that quarter of the 3-inch scope. Plus I did some googleing and found everything one would need to know about WW2 radar --HerE-- (http://www.vectorsite.net/ttwiz.html)

One idea I had to improve the sim, would be for the game designers to incorporate "navigation and breifing tools" that you could access while flying. It would basically go like this:

As mentioned before, let the mini-map be updated to include information found while in the breifing screen... Target Info, Mission accomplishment priorities, attack info, etc., however take it this xtra hypothetical step further...

If we could get an extra control while flying, that would work WITH the mini-map. Humm, lets say they could create a patch that provided a "Left click" action on the mini-map. Once you left clicked on it, a 2nd smaller window would open up below the mini-map showing heading, distance, and TTT (Time to target according to the speed you were flying at the moment of the click). information for the point on the mini-map clicked. At the same time, it could activate the RMI gauge of the aircraft for the new waypoint clicked, thereby relieving you of the necessity of constantly monitoring the mini-maphttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Im not sure if it would ever be considered, but it sure sounds like on heck-of an idea to mehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What do you the community think?

I think this sort of thing would be awesome!!!

Placed as an object in FMB or something, very simple. And then you could place observer posts as well which would further determine what the "radar-operator" see.

It has been discussed many times and it would be awesome!!!
