Since 4.12.1 the recon plane feature works again in MDS.
Would it be possible to add the refering lines from the mission section to transfer from the master file to the actual playing mission?


This is from the master file:

So appearently it is just about to add the section

[MDS_Scouts_Red]

[MDS_Scouts_Blue]

to be transfered.


note: that way the recon planes could also do recon jobs for each players side. Of course it depends, what settings the host uses (FoW icons need to be activated)



offtopic: are ya still in RoF or shall wait for BoS to send ya another donation?

Yeah, that sounds easy. (Sorry I missed this post when I was through last).

But what do these "scouts" do in terms of MDS?

I still fly RoF occasionally, but not as much as I used to. :(

Those scouts "scan" in a custom definable angle below, their flight route.
Each static object or column within this angle below will be highlighted at the ingame map for the custom definable
MDS_Radar_RefreshInterval , like 5 secs or more .Option FoW must be enabled in default Il2 1946 difficulty settings of course to make use of that feature.

I guess it will be most usefull for MP players, as you now would be able to asign own recon flights as flyable plane.
Doesnt matter if mod or not, as scouts can also be defined custom.


Hope to get ya back in BoS ;-)

Yep, see the 3.48 beta thread:

Added some code to recognize MDS Scout tags in mission file headers. Added _ru.properties to help editing in the FMB.
