Catapult Bug
« on: April 25, 2021, 03:08:09 PM »
Came across this comment in the forums regarding our catapult woes.  Maybe we can test this out and implement their recommendation until ED fixes it (they have indicated acknowledgement as a bug)

It seems that the issue is not as random as we first thought. We did a little of testing and observed the following:

If there are two different flights on deck (lets say: Chevy and Uzi) and one of Chevy planes takes a catapult, the complete Uzi-Flight is blocked on all catapults. This block stays until the complete Chevy flight has departed from the carrier (only occupied Chevy slots count). Right after the last Chevy launch, Uzi is free to use the catapults again.

That behaviour was reproduceable consistently - at least in our mission/server. The first plane seems to block for it's complete flight.

In the absence of orders, attack!

So, if I'm reading this correctly, if we want Chevy flight off first, ALL of Chevy flight folks need to get hooked up to a cat......and launch before anyone else from a different flight can get on a cat? That should be fairly easy to test and then fairly easy to live with until they fix it as long as we know what the problem is. Good catch, ah, Ajax!  :thumbsup:

Any pilot that tells you he's never been lost is either lying or he's never been anywhere.
