Can someone with a lot more experience and knowledge than I possess concerning CFS2 explain a couple of things to me?
1.) Sometimes, not all and not even most, but some times in campaign and mission play upon return to the Player's home airfield and landing....once the AC comes to a stop....it's like the wheels are stuck in glue. The Player AC won't budge, no matter how much engine power is applied. All you can do is X out of the mission. This never occurs in FF or QC. In fact, I've never even seen it in my own missions. Does anyone know what causes this?
2.) While flying a mission from the "87 Days of Cactus" campaign, I noticed the infrastructure ship, "USS Mahan" configured differently than I'd ever seen before. While flying down low and abeam of her, I could see this object ship had it's guns pointing in various elevations and trained port and starboard as if it had been in a battle and had sustained damage. At the beginning of the mission, the USS Mahan appears in it's standard configuration, that is all guns level and trained fore and aft. After the air battle the ship's configuration had changed.
This is a very old campaign, 2001. I read all the readme files, but there was no mention of ships.
At the risk of screwing up the mission, once I had flown it I opened it up in MB to verify the ship was the Mahan.
Has anyone ever seen a stock ship change appearance in this manor? Do any other ships do this? I have never noticed any ship change physical appearance before. Sometimes a little oil slick maybe and some smoke and flame, but no structural change. I thought ships were all or nothing.....that is to say.....floating 100% A -1 in appearance or sinking and sunk, period.
