Hello!

In the Sturmovik-games(il2-sturmovik, forgotten battles, AEP) it is possible to have a human pilot in the same plane that you have, but only in cooperative mode.
Why?
Is it possible that function comes in Pacific Fighters?

Thanks for the great games so far!

Only 1 human per plane in a dog fight map.(except for the tb3spb)With the tb3 you can have human I-16s under the wings.

With bombers you can move from pilot to any of the gunner positions.But if you get shot as a gunner there is no one to pilot the plane.

Yees.. but why..
Why is there possible to have a friend as a gunner(i mean a real friend, human, not AI) in Cooperative mode, but not in Dogfight?
It would be so cool to have a friend as gunner and yourself as a pilot in a stuka for example!

it would be great.

it would be nice to have one guy fly and one do the bombsite.

would be really nice if the df have moving convoys , etc... as well

perhaps all in BoB?

nice idea to have fully human crewed bombers.

Since the code is obviously in place to support multiple players per aircraft, I am going to guess that the problem is probably the lack of an interface for crewing aircraft on the dedicated server.

Once again, time is the most likely problem here and not technical issues.

I don't know about the technical issues of allowing extra human crewmembers (your posts indicate it's possible in coop but not in regular df servers). Back when Air Warrior was the only online game, they did allow human crews. Problem was, you couldn't get anyone to crew for you. You'd select a bomber, start calling for crew, and MAYBE you'd get one or two gunners after a 5-10 minute wait. It's boring enough sitting at a gun station waiting for some action, then the pilot decides to take forever by either going fifty miles out of the way or climbing to 40,000 ft so he doesn't get shot down... thereby degating your whole reason for being onboard.
In a coop, you're a little more mentally prepared to be bored (long flight times, flying slow to keep formations together, etc). In a df server we all want instant action and to be in control. Sure, if it's easy technically to allow it then why not have the feature enabled? I just don't think you'll see much cooperation. And as the bomber pilot, I'd rather trust my life to the sniper AI than a typically-bad-shot-human.

You're right, why not have feature enabled?
I see alot of cooperative in it, i never use the bombplanes but stuka and il-2 would be really cool.
