    Eben Emael

    I n an attempt to encourage those doing this project I have tidied up the DFS 230 glider - new 2d panel, vc panel and correcting a few modeling errors ( probably not all ). The wheeldolly is now a bgl ( so it doesn't need a aircraft folder entry ) and UncleTgt has done a new skin . Just a few tweaks and it will soon be ready.

    A few pics

    Good morning,

    Been busy doing research for a few days after Rotterdam; Hewman100 sent me some loss reports from May 10-13, 1940. From these notes, I've been able to do two French missions so far, with more on the way...and I built the French city of Orleans as well.

    "title_string"=Battle of France - Early sweep above the Loire River
    "summary_string"=Allons nous déplacer! German formations are now swarming all across France, and we will be in the air, ready to fight back! Your task is to patrol the Loire River from Orleans down toward the Massif Central, looking for any German bombers trying to raid airfields in Central France. You are ordered to attack whatever you encounter, and take down as many as you can! Let's show the enemy we will not cower under pressure!
    "objective_string"=The morning of 11 May saw many French squadrons in action all over France. On this sortie, a total of nine Morane fighters from GC III/6 and GC III/7 intercepted Heinkels of I/KG 51 en route to bomb Chateauroux airfield. (Bourges aerodrome is being used for this mission.) One Heinkel was shot down and another damaged by the French pilots. French losses are not stated, & there is no record of any escorts with the German bombers.
    "intelligence_string"=After getting airborne, you'll fly toward the city of Orleans, where you will patrol from there east along the Loire River, flying down to a point past the town of Gien, looking for any German raiders who may strike airfields in this sector of France. You have authority to engage any German bombers or fighters you see. Try to disrupt any attacks on airfields, then disengage and return to base when you exhaust all of your ammo. Try to return in one piece; we must maintain all our available strength to keep resisting the Luftwaffe!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=MS 406 Sgt de Puybusque 1940
    "airfield_string"=France - Juvaincourt

    "title_string"=Battle of France - Catch Kampgeschwader 51 at Dijon
    "summary_string"=Accédez à vos combattants! Enemy bombers raided the airfield at Lyon-Bron and are headed this way! You will intercept them before they can escape to Germany & hack as many of them out of the sky as possible. Let's show the Luftwaffe that we will be ready to engage them wherever they might be!
    "objective_string"=On the morning of 11 May, French Morane fighters of GC II/7 engaged Heinkel He-111s of III/KG 51 between Dijon & Gray, shooting down one of them and damaging another, a poor showing considering sixteen Ms-406s engaged the He-111s. The German bombers were returning from a raid on Lyon-Bron airfield. Any French losses are unknown, and it is also not known if the German raid had any fighter escort.
    "intelligence_string"=Once in the air, your flight of Moranes will climb to a height of 5,000 meters to intercept, while the second flight climbs to 5,500 meters. The Germans were heading slightly east of north leaving Lyon, so if this report holds true, you should catch them between Dijon & Gray. The flight positioned above will be looking for any German fighters, so if they pounce on the bombers, this should signal that no Luftwaffe fighters are present. Once you expend all your ammo, break off & return to Juvaincourt!
    "player_aircraft_name_string"=MS 406 Sgt de Puybusque 1940
    "airfield_string"=France - Juvaincourt

    Good morning,

    Been doing a little scenery building so we have some landmarks to help you navigate. Pictured are Orleans, Namur, Dinant, Givet, Givonne, Bouillon, and La Chense. Some of these locales have required or will require flattens.

    Really beautiful and suggestive landscapes.

    Congrats Rami, my friend.

    If you have a request about these and/or other buildings please let me know.

    P.S. I'm going to send to Kevin the damage models for these so they can be used as targets.

    Gius,

    Some of these towns are not being attacked; they're being used more along the lines of navigational references.

    That being said, I do have some suggestions.

    1) Would you consider doing a medieval tower?

    2) Would you also consider doing a walled town?

    Good evening,

    Before going to bed this evening, I did the towns of Diest and Wavre, both in Belgium. Screenshots will follow in the morning.

    See Greg, I can work late.

    Good evening,

    Here are three new locales in Belgium...Diest, Wavre, and because I couldn't read a map properly last night, Tienen. Tienen, ironically is my favorite based on how it turned out.

    I apologize once again for the flatten issues.

    Good evening,

    UncleTgt's work is nothing short of awesome. Here is a before and after pic of the Breguet 693. What's old is new again!

    Good evening,

    Here are a few shots of the city of Dijon, and the towns of Arc-Les-Gray and Gray, France. Hopefully, my work is good enough to cut the mustard.

    excellent le nouveau DFS230 . Le Me 321 tracté par le He111Z est vraiment spectaculaire

    Hmmmm...how do you get an AI glider to land on open ground w/o the effort of creating an invisible airstrip at the LZ? Without that capability, its just eye-candy and cannon fodder.

    You've hit on a problem there - gliders AI or wep_gliders tend not to fly but fall like bombs - don't think the game makers had gliders in mind when they thought up the game.

    Tricky

    Hi all,

    I am sure everyone on the project is onto this, so

    As far as I can see:

    - the gliders need to be set as aircraft

    - the Ju52's need to be set as weapons

    - there needs to be a 'friendly' landing zone on top of Eben Emael

    I looked at this a few years ago, but gave up. I did not (and still do not) have the expertise to do this one.

    Cheers,

    Stuart

    Stuart,

    I've been tweaking some scenery for several days, but will be returning to MB this week.

    Stuart,

    My thoughts were similar. The best way I could come up with is to...

    1) Do an airstart mission, positioning the Ju-52s in front of the gliders (but not so close as to trigger the collision bubble) with the gliders pointed toward Eben Emael.

    2) The Ju-52s would turn away at a nearby waypoint to the first, and as you stated, create a friendly landing zone on top of Eben Emael itself. (There is room for it)

    Love the screenies!

    What are your frame rates with all of that beautiful eye candy?

    Devildog,

    For the most part, high. It helps that most attacks on populated areas like these are not being done on the deck.
