There are a growing number of squads flying with Full Real settings. Of course we use coordinates set on scripted servers to find the enemy which works fine.

However, I was wondering if there was a chance to create player-selectable positions that would allow two or more people to be "radar controllers" who could vector aircraft to a region via comms or chat.

Maybe the host or the mission builder could set the number of allowable radar controllers (or perhaps there could be only two). When you hit "S" you would see on the screen next to their names "Radar Operator" and they would be the only ones able to see the aircraft on their mini-map and would be unable to fly...

An expanded idea, would be to make a screen that represented the actual radar technology of the day with blips or fuzzy lines..

Then I could command and vector my team while the CO of the enemy could vector and command his.

If you did use the mini-map, perhaps the mini-map icons would all be white... or even just dots...

Just an idea that I thought of sharing.. Sorry if it's already been discussed before or is out of the range of practical implementation..

Perhaps there could even be a relationship between the radar towers the mission builder places as objects and range. So that if the radar tower get's knocked out the radar operator's screen goes blank... until it respawns if it can respawn...

ok.. just a thought.. :S

I think for historical accuracy the radar
operators must be attractive young WAAFs

So you're suggesting I make a phone call to a couple single young ladies at this hour?

I dont know any girls like that; the kind who would sit in front of a monitor for hours at end reporting and vectoring aircraft...

Ah well... just scrap the whole idea then... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I really like this idea.

If radar is formally integrated into the game (FB or BOB), which it should be for the Defiant, He219, Beaufighter ect, then there should be a 'flyable radar hut' (or truck) which only has a radar operator position. The radar hut could have a 3d exterior and the radar screen as a gauge! Also we could have a model of the (Bentley Priory?) RAF Fighter Command control room, just as a top-down view of the plotting board. Information is also available on the German and Japanese versions.

Why is the dial on your 'radio' set to 375.0? I really need to know this....LOL.

This would be a fantastic idea for online wars and such, ESPECIALLY for BoB. I really hope that some form of radar operation will be implemented for BoB as radar was a key factor in the defence of "Old Blighty".

Yes a good idea, I have posted one myself about radar guidance. I would be great to send "Pauke Pauke" if you know what I mean ;-)

Just thought I'd kill the bird..

I was suggesting, in the event it wasnt clear, that the players who selected the Radar Positions would not be able to select a plane to fly.

Ok.. now this thread can totally float away.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
