1 down, 2 to go.

(edit): Pyro, you do realize that the challenge is completely lost by allowing them to use auto level, right?)



This is why you have nothing to worry about Del.

Not Happy, really really not happy with the new radar settings.  I take a lot of noobs on NOE missions and It's hard enough keeping them below 200 feet let alone 65.  Wasn't a 200 foot radar deck about standard for the Cold War?
Also, I would like less radar range.  The old range gave plenty of time to intercept incoming planes as long as we flew an appropriate plane to intercept.

The whines on 200 right now are like sweet ambrosia.

Damn, can someone near HTC give me the address of the local pizza place? I think I need to spring for lunch to say 'thank you!'.

New radar settings:   :aok  :aok

To the whiners:  you can still NOE base take...just more challenging to succeed.  

EDIT:  NOT implying NOE's are bad...  :)

OK... this change is just fine.. and even though I am a member of a squad that frequents NOE missions, I actually do support the change.... with a couple of... 'enhancements'...

1> If Radar is down at a base, it should revert back to the original 12K distance, and increase height to about 200ft or so for the base to flash.
2> Mountains should block base flashing altogether.  If there is no direct line of sight between the top of the radar tower and your location, you should not appear on the scope and the base should not flash UNLESS another plane/GV on that bases' country DOES have icon range on you.
3> The rules for town flashing/scope blips should apply to the radar tower in town, and base radar should be based on the radar tower in base.

Make sense?
