They need to have waypoints, so you can only do it in the mission builder.

Unfortunately there is no default 'traffic on/off' option as in for example DCS.

This was an area where the devs built in enormous detail - most vehicles have suspension, multiple moving parts, damage models etc and could be actually made drivable - but because of this, each vehicle chews up a lot of CPU-GPU so us mission builders tend to keep the moving vehicles to a minimum.

That said, in the Redux Luftwaffe and RAF campaigns you will see ships sailing and at airfields, traffic driving around the field. In the LW Redux campaign you will be able to hunt road convoys and tanks., as there is an entire ground war going on underneath you. On Airwarfare.com a few missions have been made for train hunting too.

Car, tanks, trucks, bicycles, trains is possible setting wypoints in mission using FMB.
People are only static crew in vehicles - to see then it's need change humans=0 to 1 in conf.ini.

But in the two last oficial patch the roads embebed on map are broken, now cars are not able to cruise over road,
they go sideways 3-4 meters and dont cross bridges, are a invisible "barrier" at end of bridges.

Even when you set waypoints manually the roads tends "capture" the vehicle if he go near.

Al vehicles move at same speed, and use the same engine sound.

Trains work better, but stuck on some bridges too.

This related tutorial (in Spanhis) maybe are useful:

Anyway it's fun set tanks battles in open field.

is there any indication TF is trying to resolve this problem ?

having our only current map broken in such a way that it prevents normal ground movement of vehicles to be scripted is a major problem for those of us who want to further expand CoD with extensive AI ground activity


Be advised, we got zips in the wire
