Title: CptTrips, Thanks

The offline missions are great gunnery practice.  Much more helpful than the circling drones and those are good for practice. 

I use it as a quick and dirty prep for hitting the MA or for when I have a little time to kill.

Thanks for all the work you put into it.

Awesome.  Thanks for the kind encouragement.

That is exactly what I was hoping they would be good for.  That and as a learning aid for new players.

A new player could fly an hour in the Melee and maybe get a cumulative 4-6 minutes of trigger time.  That is a very inefficient way for them to learn basic gunnery.  They spend most of their time on auto-pilot getting somewhere, get a few squirts, and boom they are back in the tower.  Rinse, repeat.

They can run a offline mission over and over again.  They could get more practice on a maneuvering target in an afternoon than they would get in a month of Melee flying around on auto-pilot.

AI are never going to be a replacement for fighting experience human pilots, but they can help with developing the basic muscle memory of hitting a twisting turning target under g-load.
And they run it over and over again with little time waste.  Try the different planes and get a feel of how they handle. etc.

Now all we need is a new player someday.  ;)  But I'm glad you are getting some use out of it too.  :D

I just uploaded: "4x4 Dogfight Brewster vs FM2"

I haven't tested it, but it is just the basic template so it should work.  Give it a try.

Your missions should be part of AH3 training  Hitech points every new subscriber towards.

They should hire you to create the campaign and training missions found in other flight sims.

<S> for all your effort

The offline missions are great but on some of them I have a green dotted horizontal bar in the middle of my screen.  what is this and how do I get rid of it? - it runs right across the gunsight. Thanks  :headscratch:

Sorry about that. 

Those are part of a message that used to show up in the text buffer, but after an update started put up in the middle of the screen,  in my VR view at least.

Unfortunately I have closed my subscription and can't upload missions anymore, so I'm unable to put up fixes for that.

NP, thanks for confirming CptTrips, perhaps Hitech can address it...
