Mick,
Have you, or someone else, adapted this to 4.09?

Adapted to 409MA and UP2.
Only one element needs to be modified:
aircraft.FM.Skill instead of aircraft.FM.subSkill

... man, I wish I could, but I better understand ancient Chinese than java language ...!  8)

Hopefully, my friend Epervier can speak java fluently, so he made the necessary code changes ...!  :P

I was thinking in doing this adaptation but if Master Gabriel already worked on the code then it will be easier to make good use of his expertise. Could you kindly make it available for any rebel interested? Thank you

Tested in VPmod, it's especially effective on single-engine airplanes. Basically, the AI will disengage from the fight if it takes a certain amount of damage.
It seems to be less noticeable with multi-engine bombers, which will ditch their bombs, but stick to the path point instead of heading back immediately.
I know it only works on single-engine airplanes for now.
I'd still like to see it work for multi-engine aircraft, so that many bomber interceptor formation missions become more realistic.

There is a certain degree of randomness. It's never the case that X damage causes the same, predictable result. There is a wide range of damage that can and will be induced before the 'decision' to disengage is taken. It can occur in the first second, after the first few bullets damage the oil system, or after a number of volleys of shot and shell have knocked off parts and caused a couple of smokes and a fire.

If there is some concensus on multi-engined crates being given more consideration in this sphere, I can do that.

Naturally, for any such AI creature as kamikaze, for instance, this may or may not have an impact. I don't know, not having delved into the AI code. Hopefully the deliberately designed berserkers ignore these kinds of decisions in their actions, pressing on relentlessly.

Maybe open a poll?
Or maybe make two versions that players can decide to use.

Hi WxTech,

What is the correct install path for this mod?

Is it [mod folder]
[RTB mod]
[4.12]

(I deleted the files inside the RTB mod folder except for the 4.12 folder

That's what I'm thinking just looking for confirmation

Thanks,

For a 4.12 Modact game, drop this folder inside the #SAS folder. Then copy/paste the two classfiles in the 4.12 subfolder up a level into the parent folder, replacing that two BAT-compatoble classfiles already there as the default.

If you want to be rid of the subfolders, that's OK. You need only the parent folder and the correct pair of classfiles within it. (I include the .java and .class files for completeness of content.)

Thanks

I've tested the mod and it works nicely

In quick Mission builder I had 8 F4U-1A attack a Japanese airbase defended by 9 fighters (6x A5M and 3x A6M)

4 Japanese fighters were lost (all A5Ms) and 3 Corsairs were lost

This is really a win for the mod - much more realistic than one side being wiped out completely

All 5 surviving corsairs suffered some damage such as fuel tank leaks and bullet holes

It's so nice to see planes withdraw without fanatically fighting to the death - top mod

Thanks for the mod Wx, it's fantastic
