Copey Posted May 29, 2017 Share Posted May 29, 2017 So here comes a quick post, as I figure while we are planning some changes and finalising others, now would be an ideal time to broach the subject of call-signs. A good while back we changed from having Vortex and Talon, as Talon was often assumed to take the role of CAS support. This was not the intention, but as many people can attest to, it happened. That's why we moved to Vortex 1 and 2. However, I've recently had an idea whereby we could return to having both Vortex and Talon. In the lobby the Slots would be labelled as Pilot Team 1 and 2, with the Pilot and Co-pilot being named respectively. However, once they get in game, they can then set their call-sign to either Vortex or Talon, depending on the role they are performing with the air assets. Vortex for transport, Talon for CAS support. This would mean there is a clear difference in the call-signs, making life easier for all involved, but that the 2 different teams are not forced into predetermined roles. The system would use the variable already in place identifying whoever is in command. We would then look to implement it under that persons ace menu, to set the 2 teams to whichever call-sign is appropriate. Discussing this with Ryko it is possible, but not something we want to look into unless there is demand for it - because it could be slightly difficult, but we aren't really sure until we really look into it. Let me know your thoughts - I'm not sure if it will float, and I do have plenty of crazy ideas; this might just be one of them. Ta.
