Assuming we get one that is. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Please include an option to have ground targets as the main "scoring" parameter (in place of / addition to Planes/Pilots as it is now).

Will make the team vs team servers alot more interesting since the "Red attacks this, Blue attacks this" message in briefing will actually matter, there will be more people flying ground pounders and it will matter more to defend your targets.

Pretty please?

That's actually one of the best ideas I've heard in a long time =)

Too bad I don't have a saying in the development of this title http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Any ideas on how difficult it is?

Would put some more demand on mission designers as well, you'd have to set up a decent ground scenario for it to work.

(So that it's not done in 2 mins, bomb the bridge etc)

And other ideas on making the team vs team better?

Actually, the coding for this in online servers is done outside the game. FBDaemon I and II are third party proggys that can measure many things and decide victory based on the mapmakers parameters.

What you're currently asking is already done on may servers (more when the dedicated server for AEP comes out)

It is? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Well there you go, self-owning is but human.

I haven't hosted before, but will as soon as I get a better connection...

I used to play FB on HL more before, but the air quake turned me abit off, particularly when the briefing was very focused on the ground war and targets, but everyone was somewhere else fighting A2A and the map restarted on Plane/Pilot count...

Is this it? http://www.greatergreen.com/il2/fbd2/fbd2.htm

A native ingame option would be better, but if it does the job well, then that's all you need for a good game.

Carrier vs carrier in PF will totally rock! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yes, that's it. There is also an extensive forum regarding the setup and operation of a scripted server(in addition to IL2:FB and a few others) at that site as well. Stop by and say hi and ask any questions you might have.
