The Spider Web ROF Campaign...

Post by GenMarkof007 on Fri Jan 16, 2015 3:18 pm

Hi guys,

If your like me and you like hunting for sub in ROF... this campaign found on the ROF website is for you!

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

http://riseofflight.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=347&t=36060

A bit of the story:

The Spider Web is a six mission campaign flying the Felixstowe F2 flying boat from Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Felixstowe. You’ll search the North Sea for German U-boats over a patrol area known as the Spiders Web centred on the North Hinder Light Vessel.

This campaign was inspired by reading “The Spider Web – The Romance of a Flying Boat War Flight” by P.I.X a Canadian Royal Navy flying boat pilot who served on at Felixstowe. While not an exact historical recreation of the missions described in the book it will give a flavour of the types of operation flown by Felixstowe flying boats. The six missions cover the whole range of missions flown with the emphases on anti-submarine patrols. There are two changes I’ve made to make the campaign work with the RoF Channel map. First I have moved the North Hider light-vessel and the centre of the Spider Web 15 miles closer to Felixstowe so that they are on the Channel map rather than being positioned just off the top. Also the airspeed indicator on the Felixstowe and the easy gauges reading in MPH rather than Knots so I have changed the size of the spider web patrol area from 60 nautical mile across to 60 miles to make navigation easier.

The missions are two to three hours flight and so most player won’t want to fly the whole thing in real time. The flight out to the patrol area and back can be done on autopilot or level autopilot. I have tried to optimize the object count so you should be able to speed the game up to X8 on a mid range computer. The position of German submarines and other enemies have been partly randomized so the missions won’t always play the same way.

Have fun!
Gen

Would be fun if this campaign could be played in coop or multiplayer, with players handling the gunners... Wink

Ah! Good Idea! We could run it on our own server or something.
