Re: DBW AI Mod Discussion & Bugs
« Reply #60 on: September 03, 2011, 08:02:48 AM »

- The AI mod DOES NOT break realistic navigation or beacons. I created a test map with all different beacon types in and I was able to switch between them without issue.

That's strange. For me everytime I select beacon, however not at beacon select but when sound is about to be played game crashes. Crash occurs ONLY with Ai mod enebled, I checked for conflicts with other mods (mainly visual) but there weren't any. Folowing RotI#32 here's my log file:

15:00:58 is the moment when morse code from carrier's YE is about to be played. Note that the last line is broken in half. Any idea what did I screw up in my install? Maybe my copy of AI mod is corrupt?

Quick question, how the hell are you getting morse code to appear as text on screen? It definitely doesn't happen in my version of the game. I don't have any issue with morse code working in my game BUT I bet you that the mod you are using for Text morse code is the cause of your crash.

I have no boody idea :P. I don't have such mod. Morse code doesn't appear on the screen when playing without AI mod, and there are no such log entries without it. So if such mod is hidden somewhere, it's inside VTD AI MOD folder...
Could you upload the full, properly working AI mod for DBW somewhere? It is clear now that my copy is messed up but I have no idea what's wrong with it.

So what we need is a check that excludes certain aircraft from the new ground attack routine and maybe something that can work out what sort of targets are around (i.e. if there is heavy flak, aircraft will dump all bombs and get out, but otherwise will take their time).

Bravo! 
Another thing is that certain fighterbombers should dive much more steeply - almost divebomber steep - for instance; the F6F Hellcat and to a similar degree, the P-47 used much steeper diving approaches than the "almost level" glide bomb attacks that they use now.

What if different ground attack waypoints were created?  In addition to the general "GAttack" waypoint, there could also be "dive" (plane dives vertically on the target, regardless of type or altitude) "level" (plane drops bombs with bombsite) "JaBo" (planes make multiple passes with one bomb at a time) and a "hit and run" (planes come in shallow dives, drop all bombs, and fly away).  One or more specific target types could also be set (flak, tanks, etc.)

Current waypoints work fine and most mission builders are aware of the quirks of them. All we need is some fine tuning of the Ground Attack method in the AI routines.

Current waypoints work fine and most mission builders are aware of the quirks of them. All we need is some fine tuning of the Ground Attack method in the AI routines.
A wider variety of waypoints would give a mission builder more direct control over the mission.  Say you have a plane that can function as both a level bomber and a dive bomber, like the Ju-88.  With the codes below, there is no way to make them dive, since, when they are above 1500 meters, they will just level bomb.  If you had a specific "dive" waypoint, you could make sure they dive on the target.

These wouldn't necessarily have to be waypoints.  An "attack method" (or something like that) dropdown menu could be added to the waypoint screen in the FMB.

What about the ability to set different target types?  That can't be covered in any AI routine because it is mission specific.  Say you wanted to have a flight of bomb loaded P-47's attacking ships in a crowded harbor.  It will probably be swarming with ships, trucks, flak, and other ground targets, so the AI planes will attack everything in sight.  The only way to make them attack ships only is to (a.) fly as the flight lead and order them to attack ships, or (b.) set an individual ship as the target for the whole flight, in which case they will only attack that one ship, and when it's destroyed, simply fly home.  The problem could be solved If there was another dropdown menu in the waypoint section of the FMB, which would allow you to set ships in general as the flight's target.  That way, they would ignore all other ground units and attack multiple ships.

Ah yes in cases of aircraft that could function as both dive bomber and level bomber, I understand. To be honest though, I have no idea how to program new waypoints types and do not wish to venture into FMB territory! It is probably something that someone with the coding calibre of Zuti could tackle but not me at the moment.

But okay, they are valid suggestions :)

Thanks, Anto.  Maybe I should start a formal request, so someone who knows how can see it?

Coding is pretty much Greek to me too  :)

Can I ask again for uploading AI mod files for DBW somewhere? Someone?

Why? They are included with DBW and as it stands, the ModAct and UP3 versions are not currently ready for public release.

This is a good idea, but for realism it need a adjusted FM too then. Divers in IL2 goes 90 degrees, and JU 88 could not get over 45 degrees in dive

Yea, but my seem to be messed up, so I need a separated copy.

Is full AI MOD included in DBW 1.6 or do I have to install files from all builds in order for this to work. I'm going to delete my entire jgsme directory for AIMOD and install it again

Of course the full AI mod is included in DBW 1.6, wouldn't make much sense to only include part of it. It has been updated with each version BUT each release has been complete. If you are having issues with it, then it is either installation error or you have a conflicting mod installed.

LeOne: As it is though, the Ju-88 AI is modelled to act ONLY as a level bomber. Would need some further editing to get the dive behaviour right.
