IMHO, it's very immersive.
How many missions do you have where AI uses that feature? One? Two?
Not saying that it isn't immersive, it's just that it's one of those features which have been implemented in a way that makes it so barely useable.

Cheers!

Ah ok ... I understand well what you mean.
I forgot to mention that I only fly my home made missions.
Right, building a mission which AI start at the apron is a bit tricky, espacially if you're not the leader of the flight, but it's worth it.

Cheers

Sorry about the mis direction. It was the reference to  " down load a Client " that led me to my thought about comms but it could also refer to a server client I suppose. Which is of course not needed to host a group on line game.

Actually I'm one of four or five people that actually enjoy the "taxi to takeoff" feature.  We're using HSFX for coop online only so the spawn issue...isn't one and the MDS is n/a for us too.

Point taken about the AI however, both friendly and enemy, as we've had some frustrations on that front such as friendlies not attacking a target when ordered or flying into the ground at the home airfield when "returning to base".

We tried DBW online but could not get decent performance whereas HSFX for whatever tech/mod reason is smooth as silk so we've stuck with that (mainly due to some of our group having "mid-range" machines so to speak).  We had an outstanding go with the old Big Birds campaign which I converted for online (30+ B-17s per mission with no issues).  That being said, if UP3 is online-friendly and has some more "extras" perhaps we should look at it more closely.
