Public Server Suggestions (?)
« on: June 03, 2021, 06:52:27 PM »
If there is already a suggestion thread for the Public Server, please feel free to point it out and I will move my post there.

*In the past we had the F/A-18 on the carrier. We had an F/A-18E (solo seater) and an F/A-18F (Tandem so someone could fly and operate air-to-air weapons while the other uses air-to-ground weapons.). I don't know how others feel about this, but I liked the option of flying with someone else with the F model. It was cool to work together and not have to worry about both.

*Is there a way to respawn lightning and thunder if their are shot down/destroyed? It would be cool to have a way to bring them back.

*It would be nice to have a truck at the FOB to rearm the aircraft. We have the refueling truck, but no rearm truck that I am aware of. If there is one, how do we get it there?

Also, as a side note:

Thank you to those who set up and manage the Public Server. We have been having a great time with it lately. It has also been nice to get the new PV1s in there and teach them some things and let them see some of the things we do and ways we operate so they have a little bit to go into OSUT with. So, thank you to you folks for sure!

SPC Zudel,
In Liberation, you largely have to build resources from your logistics or capture an objective that has a resource “prize”.  It isn’t really designed or intended to have a Zeus spawn in additional resources.

However, I can look at possibly modifying the starting maps for a future map template updates.  I assume your request/suggestion would apply to all the Liberation maps?

Yeah. Pretty much just a way for us to be on the carrier, go to a panel, and select an option to respawn thunder or lightning.  Maybe make a pilot slot and only allow the pilot variable to select the option so we don't have everyone spawning them. For the rearm, i just mean maybe a supply truck that is just designated as a way to rearm the aircraft so we don't have to be on the carrier to add weapons to the pylons.

For the suggestion of changing the aircraft, that one is just changing the asset name in the presets file.

Understood.  Not saying no, just highlighting previous thoughts and player perspectives.

The spawning and options you speak of are available in Zeus.  Building code and a new menu for a limited Zeus for an aviator would not be trivial, and the capability exists if you or someone else is Zeus.

Again, the Liberation gameplay is intended earn and build resources, not just spawn them in. 

I’d welcome a few vet players and unit leaders to chime in.  I’m all ears.

That is the pack we used in the past. That pack contains both the E and F model. The E is solo and F is tandem.

So you're talking about adding a mod from Steam to the 506th public mod pack?   Even though this is for the public server -- same process...please refer to the CO's post here: https://www.506thir.net/forums/index.php?topic=3233.0

Now that armaholic is gone, how else do we normally get mods? I can always download it and put it in a Google Drive.
