GS pilots! There are several rules issues I have up as polls on the Ghost Skies General Discussions forum. I'd like as many opinions as possible.

These subjects include:

- Eliminating respawn in Air Start games

- The addition of Custom Icons, and at what settings?

- A rewrite for the Over Time rule.

Please visit and let your thoughts be known.

Hello? ******* (can I call you that in here) Remember when you asked me to allow you to fly 1v1's in the Beta until your squad joined Ghost Skies? And I let you know that I added you to my Test and Evaluation roster, the Ghost Pilots?

You are in Ghost Skies. You can play and report 1v1's all you like. If you want to do a 2v2 and need a wingman, ask me. My GP callsign is TEST. (crafty, isn't it?)

And thanks for the info. If you would post that in the GS GD forum so I can refer to your settings later, I'd really appreciate it.

I vote for:

a li mp_dotrange FRIENDLY|FOE COLOR 0.01 DOT 14 RANGE 0.01 TYPE 0.01 ID 3.0 NAME 0.01


Remember, icons fade at around .2 to .5 before the actual range. Test it out.

Check out GH_Seglers settings as well - he gradually gives more info as you get closer. That is pretty cool as well.

something like:
a li mp_dotrange FRIENDLY|FOE COLOR 0.01 DOT 14 RANGE 3.0 TYPE 2.0 ID 1.5 NAME 1.0

Gradual info for Friendly only? That sounds interesting. I'll look him up. Recon, I'm interested in your opinion since you fly FPIMA settings (Full Pain In My A$$... a term I recently coined! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ) Is this a no enemy icon setting something you would allow in your GS matches?

No - this is both friendly and foe

I'm opposed completely to just one sided icons.

Notice the "FRIENDLY|FOE" that means it applies for both sides.

lock cockpit so afj drops out

RedDeth
01-03-2004, 03:33 PM
afj can fly cockpit on no problem. we dont need no wonder woman view. but if you lock pit you need to have externals to simulate being able to look around . like a real plane.

Goodknight, don't bring that crap in my thread please.


And Red, I know what you mean about compensating for lack of being able to move around, but if you lock externals then everyone is stuck inside the pit. Its a limitation in the game that everyone flying has to overcome. Then, also, you don't have the F6 key to find your enemy and see them when they are on your 6. Just adds a further difficulty to the game that you have to get used to.

What if the icons were present for both sides, yet different from each other slightly? I mean one aspect I like about one sides icons is that I don't know exactly how far the target in from or behind me is. I can still keep this with custom, but you can differ it from your team mates who can display the difference.

Just a thought.

Hello Dumass? Very Nice... CRASH !!!
I guess your trying to make friends with me huh?

I asked you if it was possible to join GS as a single player without a squadron, I was looking for a YES or NO answer, I do rember you sending me a msg saying you added me to something, but I dont rember replying to it or saying OK... I will help you test !!!

So you answered my question by assuming, I wanted you to sign me up? I never asked you to do that! I simply asked a question. About GS.

I was getting some interest in GS recentaly because AOW is so fun & I figured GS might be as fun if not more fun.

I replyed to your thred here, just to let you know, that I may try GS in Round TWO & was trying to input a lil input but your attitude toward me is insulting, I never speek to you like that Crash EVER!!!

Here is the exzact question I asked you, I found it @ the AFJ Forum...

I didnt see Crash ask for Settings like padlock or Open closed pit... he asked about input about CUSTOM ICONS and if they should be offered in GS and how they might be set as well as other things, you guys are one track minded, Im suprised he even bothers to do this.

Crash, Im still unclear about this Re-spawning after dying in air start? Guess I better go re-read GS rules.

WHOA!! A true insult was never my intention. I was just kidding around with ya Locust! You and I have always gotten along very well. I thought I would try to lighten the mood by ribbing you a little. That seriously backfired. My extreme apologies. I'm not attacking you or your squad. The most recent anything that involved me and another AFJ was between me and that other AFJ and his comments. It had nothing to do with you or AFJ at all.

I reread your request, and I understood it originally, I just went the extra step and set you up with the opportunity to try it out all you want. I did that for you because I've always considered you a friend. If you doubt that, go look who is signed up on the Ghost Pilots roster. You... and... 2 people you don't know who arent from this community. Thats it.

Anyway, please don't take my lame attempt at ribbing seriously. I meant no harm at all.

Actually, that point is in debate right now. It's not that people are cheating by hitting respawn, but its that the specifics of "WHEN" you can respawn are open to interpretation. Air Start games that I have been in have had a perception problem. You start after a target that looks like you can get a good gun solution on, and as you close, they disappear. Meanwhile their partner is rolling on you, and *poof* you are dead. Now, what happened? Did he cheat? No. He was shot up so bad that his aircraft was unusable to him. He respawned and the guy who shot him up got the kill. But YOU don't know that.

So, whats on the proposal board is the elimination of hitting respawn. You would have to either bail out or crash your bird. The poll in on the Ghost Skies GD forum.

Locust didn't start anything in this thread. He gave his opinion, which I asked for. I appreciate his input, as with all input. But what I don't like is people walking in here stirring sh1t up and causing problem. I'm not saying you are Crazy, but others are. Then your perception is that it was AFJ's fault. And that isn't the case at all.

I have flown with GK in greatergreen and a few others with hard settings. I know he does it. I also know that Locust flys them as well, and is quite good in them. Whatever. It has nothing to do with this thread. GK, if youwant to continue this with Locust or the AFJ, please don't do it in my thread.

I advertise here because this is where the pilots hang out. In order to improve Ghost Skies for the pilots, I need their opinions and ideas. So I'm not going to stop asking for them.

As far as taking away pilot from VEF, thats not my goal. My goal is to present a fun DF option for pilots who enjoy this kind of ladder competiton. There is nothing to say that teams can't compete in Ghost Skies and in another league. I think they will get a totally different experience from each.

As far as icons are concerened I think Enemy icons off and friedly color at 2km and type at 1km would be great. I think GS should be full real settings but most people would not fly it.. So limited icons is a compramise =)

Russian aircraft require skill to fly.
German aircraft require ten times that skill, and one hundred times the patience!

A lot of squads are Full Real squads, or willing to fly FR, or real dang close to FR. So you won't have any trouble finding a fight.

Ghost Skies is nothing like VEF, so you don't need to choose one over the other. You can compete in them both for completly difference fun.

As far as not advertising in here, this is where a lot of our players and future players read. In order to improve them league I need their participation and opinions / ideas. This is how I get them.

Locust, I noticed that your preferred DOT range is 3 km (2.5 for enemies). This strikes me as unusual, as most DOT settings I've seen are on the order of 10-12 km. Any particular reason you choose such a close range? I'm not fully versed in these icon settings; how do the settings subjectively influence gameplay? That is, why would one choose longer range versus shorter range DOT settings?

@ Crash: I've used and liked the following...

FRIENDLY mp_dotrange COLOR 3 DOT 10 RANGE 1.0 TYPE 0.01 ID 0.01 NAME 0.01

FOE mp_dotrange COLOR 3 DOT 14 RANGE 0.01 TYPE 0.01 ID 0.01 NAME 0.01

Very minimal info. Note: range for friendlies only (under 1 km) to facilitate formation flight. Segler's example (posted by Recon) is pretty cool though.

EDIT: Whoa, didn't see the second page of posts, so I'll add that this is *certainly* an appropriate place to plug Ghost Skies - though it should be pointed out that this is not what Crash was doing (or perhaps at most in a very indirect manner).
