After a couple of tests, I ended up flying as “dash 3” in a 3 ship, all based on the initial test recording. Flying formation with myself was a little surreal, and a whole lot of fun! It did however show that I need to practice my formation work, both as lead and wing!
This evening has been a huge success; now I need to move on to including different sims in the equation and see what I can cook up… FAC Arrow firing ‘Willie Pete’ marker rockets for a Skyhawk strike perhaps?
I am much closer to my dream of putting together a multi-player, multi aircraft mission in my sims! After reading Stephen Coonts “The Red Horseman” I have always wanted to create a mission based on the airfield assault depicted in the book.. Now with FSRecorder tracks, iBNet multiplayer and AI Traffic as a background I think I am close to being able to realise this dream!
