Great AAR !

Beach, you cant rise your weight into the red zone of the weight band. Even not with a combat loadout.

Ah..ok..that answers that question. The way that little bar looks it sorta seemed like you might be able to push the weight into a the red and be "warned" but still be able to continue. I didn't test it out though..thanks for the clarification!

BeachAV8R - another great mission report, have really enjoyed reading all of them. This one was a pleasant surprise as you based it on the Crimea Tour I did a while ago.

Thanks for the kind words from yourself and Shepski - it was mostly good fun splitting Shepski's original map tour into the Crimea Tour and Caucasus Tour and update / add to the existing waypoints, only occasionally was it a hassle to hunt down real life photos and details for the accompanying background information pack.

In honour of its Canadian roots, I had Berkoutskaia (a CheckSix regular and all-round top bloke) do a French translation of the Crimea Tour to put on the CheckSix site which seems to have been popular.

I did the Tours approx 18 months ago, nevertheless 3 years on from the original Lockon release they still seem popular - about 100 D/L's a month, over 5600 total - I guess this shows that we have a small but steady stream of Lockon n00bs, which puts paid to suggestions from some quarters that Lockon/FC is dead and buried.


Sorry Death, you lose! It was Professor Plum...

Thanks BRD (and Shepski of course) - I had a great time on that mission. What is really cool is reaching each waypoint then looking around trying to figure out what the "cookie" is at that location. I really liked the big train station and the oil rigs; I can't help but see them as targets in some future mission! :p

I agree..LOMAC/FC certainly isn't dead. In fact..with the latest little surge of activity I'm hoping more people get into the mission editor and start coming up with exciting and challenges missions (particularly since I like to fly them!). Obviously the possibilities are infinite...

Thanks again for your time and for the great contributions!



Regards..

I have this itch to recreate BrzI's old mission where you fly through the poles. It's similar to what Rich had for "poles", which were static S-300PS radar systems. It was setup so that each was a target, but with FC it's doable as another compettition, too bad the Russian Air Force Staff College faded out..

Do you mean HMASP from Flanker 1.5 days? http://hem.bredband.net/b133051/hmasp/standings.htm

I used to be known as "Stinger" \:\) What a great competition that was with some excellent missions!! Wonder how many of those guys are still flying sims.

Can't believe so much of the site is still online!

I remember man, I used to be known as Flanker562 (guess I need to put that in my sig these days..) but no, the one BrzI had, the one AirTito seemed to dominate (well he is a serving AF pilot) that we did many a wild missions for Flanker 2.51, but he stopped after Lock On (I think that's the reason why anyways) came out. I guess it was just lack of interest. I'll see if I can't redo the mission though, after I tour the Caucascus though, I found Brit_Radar_Dude's mission so I want to give that a go.

Though I agree, is it still going on? or if I'm reading the date string it was last updated in '98?

IIRC, it was partly that interest was falling off but also that missions were more difficult to craft. The AI was much less well behaved than in V1.5.

Hi Beach

thanx for these missions and reports - I've been enjoying them alot.

What cracked me up was, whilst following the 'follow me' truck (I used to drive one of those...) as you are approaching the Clank on the left, the jeep does a smart 90 degree left turn and stops.

The follow me has to take drastic action to avoid hitting it..... I wasn't so quick!! \:D
