I am not directly associated with any squad as a registered member , but I have previously been with the 352nd VFG ,
and have been flying recently with the Aces High. While I do count on the possibility of including either or both of these groups
in my proposal , I am not officially connected with either .
I am operating on my own initiative here.
In the interest of fostering some online inter-group activity , I would like to host a full length multi-group mission , inviting several
groups that I have been loosely associated with to participate. I am approaching your group largely because I see members of your group
commonly on Hyperlobby , and because of your (McSlash) obvious commitment to the overall community by way of your
Battlefields Servers work.
I am ultimately hoping that the interest of enjoying flying IL2 1946 will lead a few of the groups I approach to participate.
Hopefully it might also lay the groundwork for further relationships amongst the participant groups as well.
I also have the advantage that since I am not directly associated with any group , there should be no question of me playing
favourites in terms of building the scenario - I may screw up the balance , but it will be due my own ineptitude rather
than a squad bias !
In this case I would immediately offer the opportunity to repeat the mission , with Red/Blue roles reversed.
The Mission - "The Tokyo Club"
This is my concept for a full length ( approx. 4 hours) Mission featuring B-29s and P-51s out of Iwo Jima in 1945 on an escorted bombing mission over Honshu Japan.
I realize that every group flies somewhat different settings to suit their skill level and experience , and that no matter what settings are chosen , they may be less than optimal for some groups according to your normal usage.
If you agree to participate in this mission , you are also agreeing to the settings that I have chosen in the spirit of getting a number of people together to fly this great old simulation.
B-29 1944 4 Sqdns
P-51D-20NT 3 Sqdns
Ki-45 Tai Kei
-Installation Used : HSFX7.03
-Map used : Kanto Plain (JSGME)
-Mods Enabled (IN THIS ORDER)
Kanto Plain Map (jsgme)
-All participants must use Teamspeak 3
-The Mission will be in Dogfight format , in order to permit comings
and goings during the long Mission length (estimated 3-4 hours duration).
Allied Squads need to commit to the full 4 hour period.
Those that can't or won't commit to the full period will fly Blue.
-MDS Fog of War settings will be used (MDS radar will be enabled).
HUD Icons will be on , but range will be quite limited.
-Realistic Navigation will be used.
-Exterior Views will be limited to Player’s own view and static cameras.
-Both sides will have a finite supply of aircraft.
If you run out , you run out.
-There will be a password issued on the day of the Mission verbally
over Teamspeak 3.
I will provide a Skin Pack.
If players wish to use customized skins , I would ask that they limit it to adding noseart and/or codes to the provided
No track recording.
These choices are designed to enhance framerates for everyone , and to provide an immersive environment.
Your group will be welcome to participate as a group , or as individuals.
Priority of choice of Army Squadron and Aircraft Type will be to Groups over individuals , and on the basis of
earliest commitment to participate.
I must underline the fact that while I do have some experience flying online both in a group and as an individual ,
I am somewhat new to this organizational end of things , so I'd ask for a litle latitude if I do not follow some expected
protocol - I do learn eventually , so any advice would be appreciated.
I look forward to hearing what you think about this idea , and I hope you and your squad , or some individual pilots may find the idea interesting enough to participate.
I can be reached on SAS , M4T , SEOWHQ , Hyperlobby , or simply send me an email.
