8, all the stuff is on its way for this one. No mission briefing is written yet so here's what to do.
First, leave from here. That's Lima site 20, a Hmong village in the hills.
If you see a smoke marker, land here at Lima site 102 and drop of a package.
Then proceed to Lima site 10 which is a little hairy. BTW, the trees have a collision mesh. Make a drop off. We'll tell you where.
You do it sort of like this:
Once you have climbed out of there, go on to Vientiane and drop off another package.
Then head for Long Tieng (20 Alternate it was called to fool nobody). Land and drop off the last package.
This is a day in the life of an Air America pilot flying in Laos. AAA was not their enemy. The conditions were.
You have beta prop, brakes and pretty decent STOL characteristics. We may give the power a shot. You decide.
Also, here's some other stuff I sent.
Mindless detail where nobody looks. Need to take helmet off of pilot.
Engine out. It flies like a piano but I got it on the ground.
New small fuel.
Thought you'd like to see it before I put on the rivets, scratches, grease, oil, dirt, etc.
Not sure we will put the C-46 in YAP.
Royal Laotian Air Force T-28 at Long Tieng. The Karst has collision meshes now.
Some detail from Isabelle at Dien Bien Phu.
Now, back to the mission. CTRL-O opens the door and you pickle out one package near the mercenary soldier. Better in the real deal. If you cannot get around on the third try, we have to make it easier. Lima 10 is a bear but not unrealistic at all. Slow, down, flaps, come in over the trees with the stall rumbling. Aim at the dirt and flare. Throttle off. UP ARRROW. Full throttle when you are on the ground or almost there. Brakes. You are there. Turning around requires "pumping" the brakes. B on B off B on B off and it will turn right around. To leave, Brakes on. Full torque. Release brakes and DO NOT ASSUME YOU CAN FLY THROUGH THE TREES.
Let me know how it goes. (This is why you get the big bucks.)
