For any mission builders out there if you want to have a target carrier deck full of loaded planes there is a trick. Set planes on the deck with zero fuel and they can not take off. If they have bombs though the AI will drop them because their fuel is zero and the AI routine auto drops as if they are going to try to coast back to land. So to get planes to keep their bombs you make the first flight of 2 planes zero fuel and empty loadout. Now these two planes will block the other planes from launching, so now you can give a full fuel loadout to the others and they will just sit there and idle, waiting to be bombed. I made a Sink the Hiryu mission like this. The first bomb to hit the loaded flight deck sets off a chain reaction.

Here is the co-op mission if you want to try it. http://home.comcast.net/~pmcgwire/SinktheHiryu.zip

DL'd the zip and will fly it ASAP, weird that we both have a Gladiator in our sigs, and may share the same name too ( going by the webspace link )

I think there needs to be a stickie thread for clever FMB ideas like this one maybe?...

..so you dont have to put on your safari hat and go hunting all over the jungle for 'em...

you could just replace Taters' old one for potential FMB stuff and put a new one with good tricks and tips like TPN_Cephas here has.
