okay guys, the mission cycle should work now, only a hand full of maps in it, more maps will be added later when the current cycle is working properly.

So what are you saying with that statement?

Getting everything to work is a fair share of work. I think most of us don't expect the full cycle to be back in a day. It's good to know there is progress, means that those who are dedicated to bringing it back to full speed have everything figured out and just need the spare time to do it. On that note I'd also like to mention that I gladly noticed that the three 'testing' maps were indeed a nice mix with one western, one eastern and one pacific map.

LOL Kang, I didnt have a clue what maps I was installing I justpicked three at random. Maybe I should try doing the national lottery this week. :)

While converting the new cycle, could you please make sure that you only use UKded2 versions of the maps and for new maps only Target as the objective type.

(Ich weiß das du das schon weißt Sonko, aber der Rest sollte das auch wissen ;) )

Sonko

okay, its still not behaving as planned, its loading missions from off the cycle, maybe I just need to muck out the available mission files, we'll see.

Bone Head
07-09-2009, 21:23
When I last looked some of them were set as either rather than count or objective I think.

You could have. I at least think you made a lucky pick there, but as usual people tend to disagree. In result of the latter (I guess) I just noticed there doesn't seem to be any Pacific Theatre map left in the current cycle. Could we get at least one back, please, unless of course some people would actively resist when faced with the possiblity of being pried out of their 109 and 190 cockpits.

Zorin

And please, the order of the maps should be ALWAYS alternate like: East - Pacific - West.

There is nothing that makes people leave more quickly than having to play three desert maps in a row...

Sonko things to remember with FBDj, when you alter a setting in a text box always press enter on your keyboard then hit save when you have finished editing settings.

Also I have found some things just dont work until FBDj has been killed then restarted.

So where are we in respect of maps being added to the list? Current list is a bit of a odds and sods job with novelty stuff instead of the solid bulk quality of "the classics".

Is there something i could to do speed up the process, fly couple of bone's shifts, convert files, provide ladies of low moral fibre, suggest maps for immediate addition?

Sonko
13-09-2009, 22:09
you could entertain my gf so I could do the maps after work - but I say only entertain,. nothing more!

Fusek

I will convert;

Dortmund
Biscay43
Catalunia
Borneo

I have a lot of (school)work and a new dog that needs a lot of attention, but i'll try to do them asap.

Fusek
18-09-2009, 14:55
Also, now we need to convert the maps anyway, maybe its a good idea to have a link to the server rules in Russian?

Sonko
18-09-2009, 17:41
its a good Idea, but a link in the briefing wont work well i think. we could put some russian text to the briefing, but who reads the briefings anyway :D
I think its a better idea to have some repeated chat lines like we used to have on UKD2 a year ago.
Then the server will spam a little more, but this spamming will at least contain useful info.

Fusek
18-09-2009, 17:44
It's either the server spamming or me. And the server can take a lot more verbal abuse than I can :P

Sonko
18-09-2009, 17:52
good point! I'LL take a look at how to set it up.
I have no idea, anyone?

If you find it tell us all mate, i`ve been looking for that text for ages with no luck, i`ve even posted on forums asking where it is to no avail. I might ring Scrappy, he might know.

Sonko
18-09-2009, 21:05
okies, wingless already converted these missions:
Apennines43
Caen
Dortmund
Finland
Kerch
Kyushu
Valletta

They will be added to the cycle asap.

smurfy you might contact scrappy, it could safe us some time. :)

I think the server messages are in FBDj mate, I found the standard messages in a folder called i18n, I edited them to include some extra text, and it made no difference whatsoever. I then had a look around in the darkest depths of UK2, and found a txt document called motd, this had the standard UK ded greeting on it, i`m guessing Scrappy? did something to the server settings that called that file when a player joined, motd stands for message of the day I think.

Sonko

ah korea, yes that is a good one that. there was another where there was a west vs east, along the lines of the 1946 continuation of hostilities. not a clue what it was called though... german and allied late war stuff vs russian, b29's masquerading as tu4's, do335v13 and il10's on close support and jets on both sides.

Talking of which, some of the briefings still show the SC commands as 'Useful server commands'. Not very important, but if it isn't too much hassle those could be changed or deleted.

Sonko
20-09-2009, 17:57
kang do you remember which maps still have the SC commands in the briefs?
it will safe us some time.

Kang
20-09-2009, 18:43
I believe I had seen it the other day on the Kuban42 map, but I might be mistaken. Next time I'm flying I'll keep an eye out for those and list them.

Sonko imo this is the worst Appenines titled map, the bases are far too close together for the planeset, camping happens and it`s completely understandable why. In 40 mins I didn`t get more than 1/2 a grid from the base. Appenines 2 is the map we used previously and imo is a much better map.

My bad :o
I have only Apennines and Apennines43 maps and it seems bases are a bit further away from each other in Apennines map.

Algorex

Apennines2 is the map we used to have on ukded2, but it's replaceable with JtD's Rome map. Planeset is pretty much the same as is the map.

Do you admins intend to switch some/all servers to 4.09 once it is released?

Is a new version of FBDj needed or can the current version understand missions that use new maps and objects?

Wingless
23-09-2009, 15:58
Work in progress :
Balkans
Channel42
Dalmatia
Kotka
Novgorod

Hopefully with correct versions ;)

these are good questions, it is being discussed in the syndicate!

If at all possible could the time limits be shortened. In 120 minutes novelty maps like iraq or anapa get really boring.

Fusek
04-10-2009, 10:40
Anapa a novelty map?

Sonko
