Tying up a few loose ends. Soon to release a dogfight "mission" for Reno Style "Unlimited Class" Air Racing. The "mission" is designed to make pilots think, taxi and race like real pilots. Here are a few screen shots.

Also, I finally got the AI airplanes to make one lap with out going crazy or crashing. Here is a video I made with some extra audio sound http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

"Mission" is designed using the race course outlined right off the Reno Race site Reno Air Racing (http://www.airrace.org/classUnlim.php) Unlimited Class consist of any piston powered aircraft with a weight over 4,500 lbs. I tried to add all aircraft in the class.

I am going to make a short video before I release the map. Its not a difficult "mission" to make. I wanted to see how many guys/girls were interested before I finished it.

Regards,
Hawk

OK, sorry for calling this a map I made. I didn't make the "map", just the mission. I will edit the word MAP... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif

Bad habit I have from playing Aces High for several years. Over there they are called "maps" not "missions".

Love the racing Corsair skin.

Are there any sections of any maps in IL2 that are at the same elevation as Reno?

According to Wikipedia it's at 4498 feet (1371 m) - might be nice to have mountians in the background too.

Nice work !

Sweet!! I'd certainly be up for a few laps!!

I've had some RedBull AirRace type maps that I meant to release long ago, but haven't gotten them quite done.

I searched for a few days for an airfield I liked. The desert maps sucked and other maps only offered a sigle runway. Most racers in here rather ground start the race than airstart and need a wide runway. This was the best I could find. Its not hard to make. 9 pylons and some airplanes!

Its ready for download.

I have been able to get a co-op version started. It looks ok but I really wanted a ground start, formup and race just like the real thing. I can only get the AI to make one lap but any player can beat them with ease...not that this is a problem...lol The Pace Jet is AI only and any players form line-abreast on him till he breaks high. No way to announce it...lol It would be fun with teamspeak and four or five players.

Any one interested? If so I will doctor it up a little and upload it.
