Hi Uber,
Love the mission builder.
Have not been able to get any searchlights to show though.
Barrage ballons,ships,and the lot,no problem.But no searchlights.

All the attempts have been at night of course,with all the "extras" thrown in.

Any ideas?

My two cents.

Admittedly the FMB can do some quirky things. Searchlights work fine for me. They lock on to enemy planes once within range. BUT the flak I set up simply wouldn't engage the enemy. I checked everything. All the settings (and object type) were correct. I wonder if it was the range. Well, it isn't any help. Just sympathy! I honestly can't think of what might be wrong other than to make sure the searchlights are the opposing color (side)?

Good luck.

They are there... check the mission with FMB and you will see if the mission is after a certain time, because there is no reason to waste memory with additional objects during daytime.

Try a mission at 10:00pm (2200h) and you will get the effect you want... but only if you fly into an enemy area.

IL-2 FB only uses them when it is fairly dark. That will vary from map to map.

Hi 门揵er,
Many thanks!
I've been flying night missions at 00:00 hours under clear skys.

I'll alter the weather for the worst,and try various times.

It's been a long day.I think I'll down some happless Ju-88's just for kicks and call it a night.
