Right now, I'm playing/modifying the Ukraine Campaign. Every time I land on the ship, the plane gets rearmed. How do I stop this?

Secondly, after editting the cam file for Ukraine, I have 5 extra A-7s (should be zero). I read Kaptor posted in the past that there is no fix for this. Is this still true?

Thanks.

Dont know about the A-7s, but you only refuel rearm (as far as I know) on a carrier when you taxi back towards the cat after release from the wire and have used at least 200lbs of fuel. Where on deck are you rearming?

As soon as the trap is complete (plane stops; throttle automatically goes to zero), the a/c is refueled/rearmed.

That is a hard coded rearm procedure... This is in a campaign, right? So you cant use cheats to refuel before trapping...

That is a neat trick on the refuel, but I have never worked on campaign missions so all of it is a new neat trick to me! lol

You should give the Nimitz a longer search distance than 25 miles...

[quote="CAG Hotshot"]...You should give the Nimitz a longer search distance than 25 miles...[/quote]

It all depends on what the mission is and what I want to accomplish in order to make the mission fun (as opposed to realistic).

I just modified the Ukraine mission 'Stealthy Ivan'. Originally, the mission had a stealthy Su-37 sneak up and attack the carrier while you defend yourself from Su-27s shooting at you after launching from the carrier. Somewhere from US Navy Fighters to Fighters Anthology, the Su-37 disappeared and was replaced with the Su-35.

Allowing the carrier to defend itself makes the mission boring. So, to counter this, I increased the strike force attacking the carrier, changed the storyline to say that the enemy is testing a new jammer (reflecting current events), and made the ship's defense system inactive. Lastly, the player's (and wingman's) aircraft has its radar disabled (command line: hardpoint 2 0 <--location of radar on my version of F/A-18C).

That is some nice imaginative thinking on your part!
