Last night on Greatergreen Server on a early War Mission someone was flying around in a P47 much to the dislike of the ppl there. It was not chooseable on a base . The little Trick was done by changing Airclass or something (Coders will know) . It was not clear if it was only shown as p47 or really was one. In the next mission early War too a yak3 appeared . So it seems all Airclasses are chooseable from Clientsite that should be no Problem but showing the Local Settings to other PPL is. A restriction on client Site choices to mission profile should be enforced by Server. This little Trick might be existing for a long time and as only developers did know there was no worry about then. But now it seems it has been discovered.

Several more Guys took tracks so it was not limited to my system or something.

Version was 1.11 DF Mode

Look for yourself here.

LOL I was wondering what the heck the P-47 was doing there! I did not actually see the P-47, but did see it listed when hitting "S".

S!

check out the topic as it has already been adressed on
www.greatergreen.com (http://www.greatergreen.com)

It's under the "server issues" forum section of IL-2.

Hi all,

I have discussed this with Oleg. Please send him any (edited) MISSION FILES (/edited) of this phenomenon to il2beta@1c.ru.

Thanks,

Ian

FROM OLEG

We can't check it only by tracks.
If they sent me mission file with description which plane was seen (that shouldn't) then we can check is it the case or not..

Indeed.. a Unfortunate cheat. I was playing at Virtualpilots #1 server, with 1942 planeset, when suddenly I saw Yak3 and P-47 D-27 flying against me.. naturally it was not nice, as I could not catch them..

I hope this cheat can be prevented somehow..

Don't these asshats get booted?

Yes,
Fortunately the offender did get booted by Sammie on Greatergreen. IV/JG51_Dart was quick enough to start recording the track as soon as he saw it. The individual had boasted on the chat bar that he had found a console hack and was flying a 1944 P-47 in a 1941 map.

It didn't help that this individual, after being found out, started shooting his own teammates' aircraft on the taxiway with his nose gunner on a HE-111. I saw it circling the field waiting for a teammate to take off.

Yes he was quick thanks he was there else it would have taken much longer.

But on Virtualpilots and other hosts it appeared too. Seems its not limited to some mission Files. And what i have seen so far the Planechoice of these "Users" took quite long so they use console from Fieldselect View(After selecting Field) before a Plane is selected.

YAK3 and P47D27 appeared so far not seen any other Planes.

The Show command in console lists the users Planetype i think with the right set command and the Right moment to set it. This maybe _$$2 can be changed .

I remember a old Bug in IL2 where you could use a previous selected AI Plane on a Base that doesnt support em just by pressing fly when you used it on a previous mission map maybe something similar here but over console now.
