Suggest loading a MA map in the SAE with somewhat more conventional settings...

Are you wanting to fly without fights or what?

At least here is what Hitech is doing. Either he likes early morning furballing or he was reviewing his recent radar change and how players were responding to it. Saw him online this morning. Who knows, maybe he will put radar back to the old settings for the weekend or until the next patch where he wants to test more combinations with the new settings.

---------------------

For the next patch I am writing some new radar option flags so configurations can change and I can test some different combinations.

Enemy Vehicles On Radar
Friendly Vehicles On Radar
Show Bombers as Fighters

Also the BelowRadarAlt will remain active even if full radar is enabled.
It can be set to 0 to disable it.

The new dar mode fundamentally changes the game, but without the fun in fundamental...more like suckamental. It promotes bomb-and-bailers and avoiding combat even more than before. I saw 2 bombbailers and a fighter bailer last night.

From the air I watched a gv spawn vulchfest that was just silly. There were 6-8 friendly gvs outnumbering a few enemy trying to spawn in. A pilot and a gv'er were begging for a turn at the vulching of 2 or three enemy gvs spawning in. "Can I get the next one guys, can I get the next one?" Pathetic.

This changes my game play enough that I won't be in the game as much as I used to. Last night I stopped playing earlier than usual because I wasn't having the fun I ussually have with the game. That was a first for me in Aces High.

Maybe I'll entertain myself tonight by hitting radars. Har, har.

Of course they do. But truth becomes optional when people have an agenda. The "avoid a fight" mantra might have even infected HT.

Yes, HT has lost a lot of players, so something has to be done so the players can find each other on the map.  Oh, by the way I dislike a lot.

Maybe...GET MORE PLAYERS

leave the dar alone

Then more players more action.. dont scare off the remaining few..

But what do i know.. taken a 2 week break ( kids got fortnite)
Gave it a go..what a noob.. its so frustrating.. but thats what being a noob is all about.. getting wooped left right and center..trying to figure it out..i die alorta lora times trying to figure sheet out.. makes me think what it must be like to be a noob here.. very similar.. but thats the way of the noob..they gotta pay in blood to get the knowledge.. dont pander to em..after all..they are lowly grunts.. cannon fodder.. always have been
.should always be..

We get plenty of new players.   They leave after five mins.   It’s possible they see what looks to be zero action and just leave.

I do not know why they leave.  If you (they) are looking for more action, maybe HT could make the maps smaller , you know like a5X5 square grid area. And a  universal radar.

A have noticed, the enemy CV groups are not shown or maybe I haven't noticed.
