Default Flight Path Bug?

I set up a test with Egypt vs. Egypt in Oct. 1973. A clear map with Egyptian SAM's at the SW corner against MIG-21's set to fly from NE to SW. The problem is that the aircraft do not fly the assigned flight paths. Some fly in from NW and exit to E. I don't know why. My save is attached with the aircraft already assigned.

Exclamation Re: Flight Path Bug?

First off---- what version of the game did you build that with ? The map specifically. Was that something you had in your files for years? That is the only way I know of to produce this repeating tile pattern is to have built that map with a very early version of the game



THIS is what clear terrain looks like with the latest version



.....and ALL of the aircraft came in diagonally from the top left to the bottom right the three times I ran it.

I didn't make that map, it's #141 from the list of maps you can choose from when you generate a battle. When I ran the saved game you posted the MIG's make attack runs from NW to SE at the beginning of turn 2 for the 2nd Egyptian side. That's every time.

Strangely enough, when I run my saved game the planes are now flying as desired, but when I run the save you posted the planes fly in from NW to SE.

......and when I run yours and mine again they do exactly what I said they did in my first post......your save is NW - SE and mine is NE - SW

I will take a look at map 141

We seem to have a mystery. Code changes were made that seemed to show this behaviour was eliminated

Anyone looking for something to do can run both saves and report what direction they see the aircraft enter and leave
