Towing problem

Post by aerobane » Sun Nov 22, 2020 5:43 pm

I haven't flown a Condor 1 for a long time , and today, when I entered the multiplayer, the towing plane is standing on the side and won't start. What do I need to do to start the towing ?

In chat type: .start and press enter.

It has been a while sinds I used V1. I'd suggest to switch to V2. Have you tried using escape and click on start?

Escape+click is start olnly in singleplayer.
In multiplayer that is way to exit game.
Never mind, thanx for answering.

You have to wait for join time to expire, then the start process begins. The person on the server can type " .start " and push enter for the airtow to begin. There is nothing a player can do to alter the multiplayer start; only the server admin (though settings, or manually).

Any player can become admin.

If you run the server from the host tab in Condor you are automatically admin. If you run from DS you can set an admin password. (You can also set the admin password when you run from the host tab so other players can be admin)

In game you can type ".admin password" to become admin and then use the admin commands from the list in the manual. The V1 commands should be the same as the V2 ones.

This is why I always use DSHelper to host tasks. You can set it so that the tug will launch you as soon as you join. I think the option to enable is 'Automatic Start Procedure' under 'server management\additional settings'.
