Procedure for Scenarios

8 posts in this topic

What is the correct sequence for doing a scenario?  Do I choose a scenario and just go from there, or do I have to hit Su-27 or Tu-95 and then choose a scenario?  Neither seems to have spawned anything.

 

Thanks.

Carrier Ops manual will list what needs to happen. I normally start on deck, then launch and go to my CAP station. I pick the scenerio i want and depending on the time (10-30mins), wait for the vectors. TACAN needs to be tuned to ship.

They don't detail in the manual the sequence of menu choices to make.  I purposely sat on the carrier and selected escort since the manual says they will show up within 50 miles in 10 minutes or less but it never seems to happen.  I didn't know  if I had to select Tu-95s or Su-27s after or what.

OK, so let's say I want to do Alert 5.  I start on the carrier, I select Aerosoft F-14X>Scenario>CAP or Escort or Intercept and then do I wait?  The manual say they should spawn within 60 seconds.  What happens then.  Will I receive a message saying there's a bogey and where it is then fly to check it out?

 

What are the aircraft selections for?  ie, when I choose a scenario there are also choices for Su-27 and Tu-95.  Is that so that I can choose what kind of aircraft needs to be intercepted/escorted?  my manual does not explain these choices, plus I thought the aircraft was random when you choose a scenario.

sO I saw a guy on YouTube do it and he simply got hooked up to the cat, selected ADd=ons>Aerosoft F-14>Su-27 Single and within 35 seconds he got a vector to intercept:

 

 

 

I did the exact smae thing and nothing happened.  I have TACAN tuned in too.  What am I doing wrong?

That's how it works for me if I do the Alert 5. Have your tried the other scenerios?

Well what I was doing was just picking free flight, then spawning a carrier.  Then I land on it, go to the cat and sit there and do the above.  IT didn't work.

 

Today I tried loading a flight instead.  I chose the Aerosoft USS Kitty Hawk Brisbane Australia one, not cold and dark.  I hooked up to the cat, did the same procedure and it worked!  Tried it by choosing the Bear, it worked.  Tried choosing CAP, it worked.  Tired choosing Escort, it worked.  Ended the flight, went to free flight and started a flight, spawned a carrier, trapped, set up on the cat...it didn't work. 

 

So, does it only work when you use an Aerosoft mission/flight?  Also does it only work when you have the F-14?  I tried using the VRS Super Bug and when I went to start a scenario it didn't even have an Aerosoft F-14 menu to start any scenarios.

 

Also, when you are intercepting an enemy aircraft, and you fly with it back to land, I notice you stop receiving vectors.  Does that mean you successfully warded the bogey away and you can return home?  How about when you are escorting a friendly through the carrier airspace?  IN short how do you know when your mission is completed satisfactorily?  I've escorted a plane way out of the carrier airspace to land and stopped receiving vectors, but went to return to the carrier, I started receiving vectors back to the escorted plane all over again.

In the past I've used the menu to build a scenario outside of the saved flights, as long as the conditions are met (spawned a carrier within 50mi and Tacan set).

 

As far as my success on the missions, that I would have to ask the Admiral on, the CAPs have not been going so well, but my escorts have. I've been close like older Tu-95 intercept pics on the net, and I have been bored and just rolled over the top with no reactions.
