RUNNING THE MAP STANDALONE:
This map does NOT include a single player mode. To explore the map by yourself use Mutiplayer and create a local server game on your PC. You can even test capturing flags etc by typing the following command into the console once you are in the map. "sv.numPlayersNeededToStart 1".
The USS Freedom has tracked a stolen US Aircraft Carrier (carrying F35-B fighters) to Passu Keah island in the south China Sea. Here Chinese forces are attempting to re-fit the newly named Kuan Ti, and re-enforce their positions on the island. US forces have been ordered to retake the Kuan Ti, and sieze control of all chinese assets in the area. >> NOTE >> Please read the Readme.txt file included with this map for vital strategic information
IMPORTANT STRATEGY INFORMATION:
To Capture & Use Artillery, your team will need to capture the artillery point, destroy the enemy artillery, and wait for your own artillery to spawn. When it does, your commander will be able to use it.
CAPTURING THE KUAN TI:
Capturing the Kuan Ti is the main goal of the US team, while keeping it should be the focus of the Chinese efforts. The time it will take to capture the Kuan Ti has been increased signifcantly (since the Beta) for 32 Players, and increased even further for 64 player. To capture it quickly you will need to be working with your team mates. This is to encourage team work, and help make capturing the carrier as challenging as it should be. Neither carrier is available/playable in 16 player mode (just in case it isn't obvious on the map).
When the round starts the US tickets will already be "bleeding" as a result of the Chinese hold on all island points and the Kuan Ti (Carrier). This bleed will stop as soon as the US capture a flag on the Island. If the US team can capture the Kuan Ti and the Island Points (excluding Supply Dock), a ticket bleed will begin on the Chinese teams total.
TEAM ONLY ANTI-AIR ON CARRIERS:
The Anti-Air guns on each carrier can only be used by the team in control of that carrier. If your teams captures the Kuan Ti you may need to destroy the existing Anti-Air and wait for it to re-spawn in order to use it (Similar to Artillery).
PARACHUTE SPAWN NOTES:
This map includes optional parachute spawns on all central island points.
Teams in control of these points can choose to spawn at a designated parachute spawn.
Your parachute DOES NOT open automatically, choosing when to pull the rip-chord is all part of the fun.
Well here it is, the Final version of Aerial Combat, a carrier/island map for BF2. There are several things that I never got around to finishing, like working vehicle shadowmaps, and ambient sounds, but this version is a big improvement over the Beta. I've made it more difficult to get the Kuan Ti, and spent a lot of time trying to balance the map so it's fun for both teams. Jet lovers might complain that there aren't enough Jets in 32 player (and none in 16 player), but there are 4 a side with 64 Players so that should keep em happy. This map should have something for everyone, even those who can't fly to save there life (you might want to know how to parachute though). I've had a lot of feedback about this map, and I really do appreciate it. I have tried to take everyone's comments and suggestions into account for this release, and I think the map will be better for it. If you find an obvious fault that needs fixing, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks go out to:
- [BITS] Djnapkin for hosting all early Beta tests of this map.
- [BITS] Drinno for starting me down the road of a carrier vs carrier map.
- All members of [BITS] squad who helped test this map.
- Totalbf2.com for publicising the Beta 3.0 version (and any future versions) of this map.
- Everyone at the bf2editor.org Forums (Anyone who's used the editor knows that making a map from scratch without the forum, is like trying to fly a helicopter blindfolded)

|Im sure there is a noob somewhere crashing the F-18 into the Cobra at this very minute! |
Joined: March 7th, 2006
|lol.. I was kinda hoping even the noobs would manage to taxi onto the runway or at least wait so they don't collide with anything. I don't think you have to turn much to get off the deck in the F-18 (going straight forward) to avoid hitting the chopper. |
Thanks for the postive comments MrFlammable & 7h0r4x3. Appreciate it
If anyone is interested Incognito Gaming are running a TOP GUN competition using this map and I think they might be hosting it one of their servers for general play as well. Check out: http://www.incognitogaming.net/main/index.php and click on the TOP GUN compeition banner

|does it work for SP? |
Joined: July 4th, 2005
|Nope, no SP, which is a pity, since I really love this map. |
And yeah, F-15Es can't take off from carriers, but to my knowledge neither can the Su-30MKK or J-10 ('bout time someone made a Su-33).
