Hello Oleg and friends!
Is it possible to create a interaktiv ground-Control for IL2/FB (like My Traffic for FS2002),that tell us about ALT and Heading of the Enemy or anything else?. Or give us information about position of Friendly or Enemy Aircraft(with woman-voice? haha)
Greetings,Jolley http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I have written about this before and I agree with you.

This ground control should be historically accurate. If the radar at 1942 was limited to track A/C above 1500m, it would be the limit for groundcontrol.

That would be nice, dunno about the woman-voice though. Were there female controllers in comms in WWII?

I think that the WAAF did do their bit in providing comms controllers as well as cups of tea and bandages. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Even without radar there was other intel on movements both enemy and friendly from air and ground reporting in.

This could be simulated in two or three ways depending on how much PC load versus detail is desired.

A) Have actual reports from AI planes, ground units and spotter positions. Very intensive detail and load on the PC.

B) Designate circular areas on the map (center & radius) where anything is seen then when a player asks for info let a low priority task take time and check from closest area to farest (is that aword?) from the player, or by some other way.

C) Like B except every so often a low priority task makes a list of spottings and positions that gets used to create a situation map, etc, etc, etc. Load, code and complexity would be very heavy to incredible.

D) Like C except spotters as in A. Insane heavy load -- someday we might see this in my lifetime given the rate of PC improvement and Maddox Games keeps pushing the envelope.

I would think that certain ground units would be able to report on enemy aircraft sightings, particularly your home airfield.

Of course, factor in communication logistics and you won't get 100%. But I'd be OK with the occasional blurb.

What I'd like most of all is for ground control to let me know when I'm clear to takeoff. Yes, I know about spinning sideways but that's a work around, not a final answer.

Yes, considering there is a speech file where Control DOES say `It`s Safe to Take off`, yet for some reason it has not been used.

Or even Control giving you a heading for your landing. Many times I've come in from the last waypoint only to find AI landing from the opposite direction. The Online Campaigns are the worst for this.

And I've asked for a windsock on the field before patch 1.21. again.....please, please, pretty please

Soviet army starting at mid 1943 had permanent air dispatch units at the front lines. I think it would be excellent addition... maybe like overhead messages addressed only to 1 side ...

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.
