probably been asked before, but......

I'd like to use the Pfalz AI (my real plane is the Aviatik) and can do so using your mod. I have a custom skin for the Pfalz but cant assign it to my pfalz.

It takes on an old deleted one that I had used in another campaign


p.s. solved it
created and started a new campaign with a squad in 1915 with Pfalz AI's. Picked my skin started mission, quick RTB and end flight.
Now the editer seems to take last skin used and I have what I wanted.

Oh, that reminds me I have not publicly released the latest version 1.7.5 of Mission Editor yet. On request of hoongadoonga I have implemented the Player custom skin selection button - now you can select custom skins for selected aircraft in Mission Editor Pilot menu - see enclosed picture.
Additional fixes:
1) "No lightning" radiobutton did not work - fixed
2) Pilot restoration from backup routine fixed
3) Added new button Save as default - you can save your formation as default. Non functional at present - WIP

Enjoy!

Download available here.

Thanks again for doing this. I've been using this version for quite a while now and it's great. The ME already was my favorite mod and this just made it even better.

You keep making the mod better. You're the man!

JJJ, I have an idea for how the ME might improve performance. I'm quite certain that WOFF performance temporarily suffers whenever either allied or entente flights take to the air during the player's mission. Furthermore, I think we all know that overall performance goes down as the total number of AI flights goes up. I suspect that a large number of the AI missions that are taking place will never even cross paths with the player's own flight, unless of course the player (or the AI) decides to deviate significantly from the predetermined mission flightpath.

So here's the idea: could you implement an option to "delete" AI missions that ME calculates as "unlikely" to cross paths with the player's flight? This would help to improve performance (albeit at a slight cost to historical realism), especially in late 1917 and into 1918.

Cheers

Hey, call me stupid, but isn't that what the Workshop "Regional Air Activity" is supposed to be doing? Is it not an adequate level of change (meaning, it doesn't completely eliminate all other activity, and that's what you're asking to do)? What about the stutters that occur because of aircraft/objects that you are likely to encounter?

For the ones you're likely to encounter, if there's less aircraft loading simultaneously (assuming there is indeed a contributing factor toward stutters from aircraft loading) then the stutter effect should be reduced somewhat.

As I think OBD has explained it previously if I recall correctly, regional activity reduces the density of air traffic, both near and far. There is still far traffic being generated. If that's not the case then yes, it's no different than setting lower air activity, and that's certainly another tool that can be used to improve performance, regardless.

OK having spent the last couple of hours messing with the ME, I can say with some confidence that by increasing regional activity you are introducing more aircraft, both friendly and enemy, across the whole "map". I can also say that a meaningful number of those aircraft are unlikely to have any contact with your current mission path. Now this may not matter as much early in the war, but in 1918 it could make a significant difference. If it were possible to cull flights that were never likely to intersect with your own, you might in some instances be able to reduce the load by as much as half (early guesstimate). As an example, my system is generally comfortable and smooth up to ~ 150 planes. Beyond that it starts to noticeably bog down. This is not stutters. It's a consistent degradation of the overall smoothness, In 1918 with regional air activity set to medium I often see 300+ planes and it's not super playable. If I could get that down to 150 I'd recover some smoothness and hopefully not miss out too significantly on EA encounters. Make sense? The downside might be that you'd be altering the balance of power in such a way that you might gain an unfair advantage, simply because less friendly flights would be culled due to their proximity...? Not sure about that. I'm also not sure if simply dropping air activity would have the same effect but I am going to guess for now that you'd have more enemy encounters with regional air activity set higher, but with the advantage of less craft in the air overall, hence the idea for the feature. Seems logical, to me anyhow smile

As for "spawn stutters" I'm still investigating this.

An interesting note, and one that actually corroborates my own experience: Setting regional air activity up, down (sideways...) has zero effect on stutters. You (I) still see exactly the same stutters as I always have, at precisely the same moments (in a controlled test QC run). So, the 'stutters' are something else.

Thx for idea and support, guys. I will think about it, however, presently I am on vacation and not able to do any coding till 2nd June. In addition, I have just received bug report from Robert Wiggins stating that ME is not compatible with WOFF 4.22 update, so, I am going to correct that issue first. I will keep you informed.

So I just updated WOFF UE to 4.22a and I am trying to load the first mission file for my career with this new update and the editor just sits at "Loading mission file" and never does load the file. Does anyone else have this issue since the latest update?

Other than the 4.22a update, nothing else has changed for my WOFF UE install.

ME needs to be updated in order to work with 4.22. JJJ65 is aware of this and will likely have a fix soon.

Super! Thanks for that info, Robert. I'll hold off on my career until JJJ65 does his magic.

Mission Editor v 1.7.6 released, download available here.
Revision changes:
1. Solved (hopefully) compatibility issue with WOFF UE 4.22+ update
2. Various randomization of enemy ambush situation (thx to Fullofit's request) - still WIP

Enjoy!
