[Bug Report] Mission 8 was created by LostSoul15
Hi Guys.....

i encountered something strange during the 8th Mission of your Game. After you destroyed all the Capship Missiles heading for Vega. In the upper Atmosphere, where you have to destroy the Kilrathi Landing Ships, your Wingmates will fire on them, but the Lasers seem to "disappear" a short Time before they are going to hit. Took me about 25 Minutes for the whole Mission, hunting down each Dropship without Afterburners and shooting them down on my own.

I´m not sure if this is actually a Bug, but it seems so to me.

Greetings...

Played the mission just now to check your issue and for me it works fine - the whole mission lasted for about 16 minutes and I didn't destroyed a single troop transport. The wingmen took care of them, although I have to admit that they open fire early and while doing so fly to them with a closure rate of 10+ kps (target speed 350, wingman speed 360+) so at first it seems that they will not score a kill but they eventually do.

Well sometimes the AI opens fire a little outside of weapons range. And of course outside of range the weapons fire disperses.

I played on Normal, as i figured out "Hard" is a bit to much for me right now. I also let my Wingmans shoot at the Dropships without shooting myself for about a Minute, and they didn´t even hit once. So if it´s a bug maybe you can do something about it, but if it´s a feature, it´s ok for me too ^^

I noticed the shortened range on the lasers but just figured it was an atmospheric effect, laser light dispersing in air and all. I just got closer and shot them.

MY Laser actually did hit as i was in firing range.....but the one of my Wingmates didn´t. And without any Fuel left for the Afterburner, this Mission can take a lot of time, if you´re the only one who actually hits this damn dropships ^^

This mission isn't so hard that you should be out of afterbuner fuel if you are managing your resources; that being said, even if you do, the transports fly at a much lower speed than your fighter. Closing on them really isn't an issue other than taking a bit more time if you can't use your afterburner. The real issue is engaging the fighter cover and staying out of missile tracks, that can be tricky without the use of afterburners.

I guess the hint here, is that even though you may use a lot of afterburner fuel engaging the capship missile launch against ground targets, once you get to the point where you can start engaging the transports, engage the fighters as you are working your way toward the transports. That way, it isn't so much of a game of playing catch-up with the transports after killing off the fighters.

I know, i did finish the Mission after all, so all in all it´s no real problem. I just think the thing with my Wingmans not hitting any of the Dropships the whole Mission(!) just complicates it. If you have to fly within firing distance of each dropship, maybe pulling away from it also cause you´re getting shot at to much........all in all took me about 15-20 Minutes alone doing this part of the mission :)

As i said earlier, if this is a feature, i´m fine with it.......

Hi,

in this mission my wingmen/commander stayed so far away/moved so incredible slow after all fighters had been downed I took out all dropships on my own. Then when I turned to the last one they finally arrived. But they did destroy the last one on their own!

:lol: "Hey guys, lets kick back and relax, watch the show while he does the job!"... atypical attitude with almost any AI out there.
