IL-2 1946 modded to 4.14.1m question. I am trying to make a mission where bomb craters are permanent. Anyone know how to achieve this?

Thanks

know in HSFX there are collidable bomb craters in the objects section but I don't know about v4.14.1? Some of the trench bunkers areas looks somewhat like a large crater so that might work?

Thanks Wheels! I'm looking to create a scenario where we have 4 bases set up for head to head. If I as player 1 bomb the runway of player 3 he won't be able to use his base any more. I have tested the bombing and if I do my part on placing a couple of 1000 lb down the centerline of his strip, it should be unuseable. Not enough room for landing or take off. My issue is the craters disappear after 2-3 minutes game time. Can't figure out how to make them stay.

The only thing that might work as you describe is the bomb craters multiplier. I just don't remember if it is ignored in a multiplayer game?

Thank you Wheels for your suggestions. I had used that last suggestion in my testing and indeed the game ignores the multiplyer.
I do appreciate your taking time to respond

Dang, that stinks and even though I found out for certain that it is correct that it won't work in dogfight mode it is surprising and their reasoning is not all that sound, imo, for not adding it to dogfight multiplayer mode.

On this screen you can modify time before bomb/gun/rockets craters disappear. Default multiplier is set to 1.0 for all of them. Default times are also stated (number next to text boxes). By changing multipliers, you can make craters visible longer time. However this only works in single player mission and coop missions. Setting long crater durations in dog fight missions would cause inconsistency between players, since DF mode allows joining anytime.

If that were the case then you couldn't join with anything moving on the map since those require syncing between the server and the player joining too. Imo someone just didn't feel like adding another timer to keep the bomb craters in sync.

I can't think of anything else at the moment that might mimic what you want but if something comes to mind I will give you another shout out. cool
