Santa vs Grinch [Special PvP Event]

Santa VS Grinch - (RL3+)
[Special PvP Event]

Date: Sunday December 19th

Time: 1500 EST (2000z)


Details

The festivities are upon us! As we approach the worlds most celebrated holiday, BSD will be waiving one of its core values for a unique event. A Player vs Player xmas themed event will be held for all members, including RL3s! This is intended to be a fun and non-competative match where winning results in nothing more than a "Good Job Team". In this event, pilots will be fighting for control of a battlefield using helicopter tactics and strategic attacks and defenses. Full details on the game mode can be found in the briefing below.

Registration Information

Unlike a typical BSD mission, there are no dedicated aircraft slots to register for. Any pilot may fly any airframe that is available, however pilots should get first dibs on their primary airframe. There are however two Team Commander slots. These are non-flying positions for those who would like to command their team to victory and participate in the match using Combined Arms. 

You are free to pick the team of your choice, however teams will be balanced just prior to the event date. You may be moved to keep the match fair. If you would like to be paired up with one or more other pilots, add a codeword in the remarks such as "Taco Squad" and have the other pilots do the same. This way, you will be placed on the same team as them if balancing needs to be done.

Busy Day #22

Busy Day #22 - (RL3+)

Date: Saturday December 4th

Time: 2100 EST (0200z)


Flights

REAPER - KA-50
SHADOW - SA342
RHINO - Mi-8
OUTLAW - UH-1H
DRAGON - MI-24P


Details

Busy Day is a scenario based mission intended for working on Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs). RL1s can maintain proficiency and learn new things, RL2s can get checked off on their RL1 tasks, and RL3s can get exposure to combat missions in a controlled environment. In Busy Day, one of a number of TTPs will be selected to work on based on who has registered and what needs to be covered.

RL3s who are skilled in their chosen airframe can confidently join Busy Day knowing that the mission is training oriented. It will support learning with demonstrations and a setting that allows pilots to ask questions and take the time to learn something new.

Busy Day is not a training mission for pilots who still need to work on fundamentals of flight including basic operation of the aircraft and its systems, control of the aircraft in flight and landing/departure, and flying in formation. These pilots however may fly with an RL1 or IP/UT to observe.

Exercises this week:

Flights

REAPER - KA-50

RHINO - Mi-8
OUTLAW - UH-1H
DRAGON - Mi-24P


Details

US Flight Night is a dedicated period of time between 2100 EDT and 0000 EDT where BSD Pilots may come and join in on some impromptu missions. These sessions are not milsim level with heavy planning and strict procedure following and are instead intended to be a fun casual night of flying with others, loosely following the BSD SOPs. This is also a great time to test new concepts and ideas without risking the success of a well organized mission. BSD RL2s are welcome to fly other airframes they are RL3 in, however please make me aware that you are not RL2 certified in said airframe.

Flight Night is taking place in the dedicated Flight Night mission on Syria. Small, quick missions are generated based on the airframes and firepower available.

The start and end time does not define when you have to show up and leave. It is simply a window where I will be around to keep things going. You may come and go as you please during this window and choose to either join in on the current objective if able, or wait until the next one starts.

Isreal/Jordan Border - November 8th, 2002 (fictional)

Over the course of the year, tensions between Israel and Jordan have been rising. The final straw was a trade embargo set by Israel against Jordan, preventing the export of much needed water to Jordanians. Jordan retaliated by attacking an Israeli military base with SCUD missiles, breaking the 8 year peace treaty signed by both countries in 1994. Israel has decided to invade Jordan in an attempt to occupy the country. Their plan is to cut Jordan across the middle, annexing the lowly populated Northern desert and airbase. Then they will push from the North and Southwest to occupy the rest of the country.

The first phase of this offensive is Operation Fractured Castle. Using the deep valleys on the Northwest border of Jordan, the plan is to infiltrate the highlands and take control of a military operations center between Irbid and Al Ramtha. Jordan has an overlapping IADS covering this part of the country which will need to be disabled for the operation to be successful.

Vietnam War - March 16th, 1968 (fictional)

Saturday afternoon, deep in the Vietnam mountains, a ground patrol from the 4th Infantry division callsign "Skeedog" noticed something different about a particular river valley. Suspecting there may be a road being constructed here for VC supply convoys, they received permission from HQ to investigate. 25 minutes later, HQ receives a distress call from the unit. They fell into an ambush. Receiving fire from all sides, they have no choice but to lay low and keep the VC from climbing the valley to get a more clear shot. Skeedog has taken some casualties which need immediate CASEVAC.

HQ has determined this to be a critical engagement and is scrambling troops and aircraft to support Skeedog in the fight. CAS aircraft are requested to suppress and eliminate the immediate VC threat. UH aircraft are requested to transport additional troops and equipment to the valley. OH aircraft are requested to provide situational awareness of the engagement and locate an LZ for UH to safely land at.

US Mission Design Workshop 3/3: Enhancing Immersion

There is noted to be a lack of mission designers within the US region who are hosting missions and supporting activity during our evening hours. In order to tackle this issue, I will be holding a three part mission design workshop series to help others learn the program and have an better understanding of what it means to make a mission in DCS. In this workshop series, you will be working on various aspects that make up a well rounded mission here at BSD. The series is split into three sections:


1) Your First Mission - In this session, we will look at the basics of using the mission editor and create a simple single helicopter mission that has a goal and uses triggers to operate.

2) Missions for BSD - Creating a solo mission is simple. Making a mission for a multiplayer squadron however can be quite daunting. In this session, we will look at the elements of creating a successful multiplayer mission such as tasking, planning, briefing, and how to be flexible for the potential turnout.

3) Enhancing Immersion - In this session, we will go over a few tips to help you make a well rounded and detail oriented mission that really brings life to the party. We will also check out some more advanced triggers to make your missions more lively and even cinematic.

These three workshop sessions will be recorded and made available for reviewing or for others to view who may not be able to attend.


 Enhancing Immersion

At it's core values, DCS is a flight simulation. This means it does everything it can to make you feel like you're really there flying a helicopter in a combat sortie. The way you design a mission can make or break this feeling of immersion. From instilling feelings of uncertainty, manipulating the behaviour of AI, and adding cinematics such as firefights and explosions, supporting an immersive environment will create memorable monents for the pilots flying in your missions.

In this workshop, we will look at various ways to make your mission feel more real. This includes the details you put into your briefing, making the AI communicate and behave more realistically, timing events to occur at just the right time, and creating cinematics to really get the adrenaline going in your pilots.
