Servidor ACES HIGH Jueves  15th OCTOBER, 22.30 CEST

Hi !
We would like to invite you to a test-event for a very special map in our server on il2, here's the post:

 

ACES HIGH - FEAR OF THE DARK !

 

After the successful initial test on our server, we are now ready to have a TEST-EVENT for one of our innovative maps, trying to bring something new to the Il-2 experience: NIGHT FIGHT!

 

This map has been carefully created to re-create the vibe of the night duel, bombers will try to attack their targets from the shade hunted by the searchlights ready to unleash a punitive flak, as well as the night fighters looking for a prey.

 

Worried of getting lost in the night, or miss completely the action? Don't be scared of the dark: the map is also introducing a navigational aid simulating RADIO BEACONS to create an immersive way to help yourselves navigate accurately in the night, as well as a newly set ADVANCED RADAR WARNING system and coordinated SEARCHLIGHT / FLAK defenses on the targets.

 

Curios? Let us give you also some historical background on this scenario:

 

"4th Februrary 1943, Novorossijsk. Russian ships are anchored in the bay in front of the city, waiting for the invasion landings set for tomorrow. Novorossisjk is preparing to be besieged, with Ju52 paradropping supplies on the axis defensive positions. Russian bombers are flying tons of sorties to weaken the landing beach, and among them there are the mighty "Night Witches'', who will be known in the future as "Taman" regiment for doing 4600 flights in this peninsula. On the other side, luftwaffe nightfighters take off like every other night, guided by the radar operators on the ground. On both sides, men are nervously looking at the sky, ready to light on the searchlights to spot incoming intruders"

 

The event will be hosted on the ACES HIGH server next THURSDAY 15th OCTOBER at 22.30 CEST, save the date!

 

All pilots interested to join as single or as squadron (Suggested) please contact me in PM to save a spot to join. Details will follow, for any question you can refer to me

night.jpgThanks for the interest guys, many squadrons are interested so I think it will be a fun night with a new experience.

Don't worry we have several cool feature to help navigation and finding the action without losing immersion (no GPS!).

I will share more details today or tomorrow about the mission and preparation, in the meantime please let us know how many are interested to join so i can save you enough spots!

 

Thanks,

MAP INFORMATION:

-Spawning airports for both sides have bonfires showing the taxi directions and electrical

lights lightning the runway (except Po2 airport). The electrical lights will automatically

shutdown when no allied plane is in a 10km range from them, and start when they will spot

allied planes approaching.

-All across the map there are searchlights that will automatically start searching for planes

when you are in their range. On targets the searchlights will search only for enemy planes,

while on the other parts of the front can randomly trigger and start pointing also to allied

planes (without firing at them) to acknowledge who is flying over them.

-Night navigation is made easier thanks to an extensive radio beacon system: not only they

guide you across the map, but if you click with your mouse over the black arrows on the

map they will show you route and ETA at the given speed

 

ALLIED radio beacons:

AXIS RADIO BEACONS:

-To simulate the fighter radar guide we put a big number of radar stations across the map

over the frontline, the targets and the bigger cities (we tried not to exceed with their
number to avoid a saturation of pop up messages in the technical chat).
-To simulate also the long range radar capability, these radars work for both factions on
both the side of the front. Sadly due to the editor limitations they will only say how many
planes are passing over them and when they are passing, and no altitude or direction will
be shown.

-Note on radio comms/SRS: even though we are interested and willing to implement SRS
radio on our server in the long term, for this test there will be still no SRS; we encourage
coordination in general but for this night we are testing the map dinamics also for random
players, so squadron are asked to choose freely their own the mission profile / target and
decide if having a basic coordination on in-game chat or not as they wish.

Mission briefing for Thursday is ready, i just need to understand how to send it to you (it's a PDF file), please anyway let me know:

1) how many pilots are confirmed and how many extra might join

2) preferred faction

3) preferred mission role

 

 

Thanks

Thank you for the briefing. The misión looks incredible!

 

1) I just posted on my first comment a list of the pilots we have confirmed so this way is easier for you to check. For the momment we have 8 confirmed and 1 possible. Of course I will update the list as soon someone joins for the mission. Please tell me as well till wich day I can tell you how many we are so I can set up a deadline for my people to join or if it is not necesary I do not expect more than 15 people participating so if you can reserve 15 slots that will be enought and if you have not that many slots then we will tell you a exact number. 

2) I will discuss with my people this and I will give you an answer as soon as possible tomorrow

3) If you need you can send me to my Gmail anything and I will try my best to post the Pdf or watever here : geramos109@gmail.com

 

Thanks man.

Hi! I see most of you voted for "Indiferente". 

If possible I would ask you to fly RED (Russian) toghether with GEMINI and IRRE. Is that okay?

 

Let me know then if you prefer to fly bombers/attacker , or fighters, or a mix.  

 

Thanks!

 

If there is a need to fly red for balance that is ok. About the rol I think we will be ok flying everything. We can divide to make some fighters and some atackers/bombers.

Please send us as soon possible the brief to prepare a little bit before.

So, the majority of the information are the ones provided in my previous post, when joining the server you can choose your own target and perform 1 or more sorties in the way you prefer, the suggestion would be to try to fly as bomber / attacker + escort on one of the targets.

 

For allies, targets are:

-search and destroy german HQ (really few aa, expressely made for "Night witches" Po2) --> please leave this (hidden) target to the Po-2 players, this will be mostly IRRE team

-destroy Novorossiysk fuel depot

-destroy Novorossiysk stronghold

-destroy german shore Novorossiysk fortifications

-destroy Anapa advanced airfield

-destroy northern fortifications

Here a more detail view of the targets around Novorossiysk port, where we expect the most "heat" of the action:

 

20201015164122_1.jpg

 

There will be no pre-mission audio briefing, but when you enter the map you can coordinate optionally with the rest of RED team using:

- in-game chat

- SRS --> address for SRS is 79.9.2.47 and is set as Faction-only (you will talk with RED players only)

Please consider coordination with other team/players as "optional", as we're trying to test random actions and not pre-assigned ones on the server.

Please red the notes from my previous post and the information you fill find on the map in-game for navigation, searchlights etc.

Please note the map is still in testing so there might be some issues such as slow-down or bugs, if you find issues, please take note and report it after the event, this helps a lot with map development.

 

Expected squadrons on Red side should be you (10-12x), GEMINI (8-9x) and IRRE (11-12x), plus additional player than might join "on the go" from the public.

 

Thank you again for joining, let me know if you have more questions, and have fun!

It's been a pity because the server kicked me many times even when I was going to take off.

Thanks to the all pilots of your squadron joining last night.

 

The testing was extremely useful to verify the (successful) dynamics of the map, and we already identify the root cause of all the issues at mission starts (basically too many events happening at the same exact time in small areas of the map, we now know how to fix that).

I hope despite the initial hiccup you were able to enjoy the event and the map, and we would be very happy to hear your feedback about:
- map and layout (AF, distances, targets)
- night flying experience
- map items (searchlight, radio beacon, flak etc)
- performance issues, bugs etc.
- suggestions for this map or for the sever in general


Thank you!
