Question about taxi to takeoff
« on: August 28, 2015, 02:04:15 PM »

Hi all,

  I'm pretty new to IL2, got a question about taxi to takeoff vs auto pilot. In building missions I have noticed that when I do a taxi to takeoff my auto pilot doesn't work. If I manually takeoff cross the first waypoint, and select auto pilot, the plane will cut the throttle and turn back to the airfield. If I select auto pilot from the start, it tries to takeoff from the present position.

  Is this normal for taxi to takeoff, or is it me doing something wrong?

Normally the autopilot should be perfectly able to do that.

1) It  is normal, your plane will reach the last waypoint it didn't reach (in your case, a waypoint around the base).

2) I'm just curoius about the version you're using, I guess it is 4.11 (or modded version based on 4.11). In that version, AI (and autopilot) taxi was not implemented.

I have seen the same behaviour, you have to start your engine, put your plane on the rails and then Autopilot would drive your plane to take off.
I have only used CUP/TFM 4.12 (... sorry, not quite true, I bought FB and played it a bit back in 2002 !)
I am also yet to figure out how AI dodge each other and my good self when taxiing: so far I have to keep my eyes peeled to watch the traffic!
