Default Radar on planes

Well after using the search engine on this site and looking at about 3 pages of posts that have absolutely nothing to do with the keyword "radar" I decided to start a post. Pretty useless search engine btw, or maybe im just not using it correctly.

Anyways my question is what does the "Radar off" in the bottom left of the HUD when you get into a jet do, and how do you use it? And yes, I have read the PR manual and im certain its not in there.

Thanks

The opposing aircraft do not get radar lock, like the vanilla tactic of switching to bombs so you can sneak up behind a jet and gun him down.

Ummm.... what? I have no idea what you mean by radar lock, do you mean by spotting or missle locking or what? Im still totally confused with what it does, and how to turn it on.
And you cant sneak up behind jets anymore with bombs on? They still get missle lock warning?

It says its off because radar is hardcoded, and we cant not remove the ability to see everything, only air, only ground or nothing. so instead of giving the aircraft magic radar we removed it completely. Hence the radar is off.

I'll try to remember this little thing when the new wiki goes up and i'll add it in

Yeah let me clear that up.

Bf2 engine has radar ability, but the radar is ether everything shows up or nothing shows up. We can not say just show aircraft or just show ground targets. It shows everything: players, vehicles, and aircraft.

So because this is unrealistic (like seeing players underground) we removed the ability all together and let players work with teammates to mark targets.

Well it depends on what you define as radar, what it means on the hud is just basically "only cannons selected" but in a better looking manner, so you donĀ“t alert the aircraft you are targeting.

Something like this would be more like radar.


"Today's forecast calls for 30mm HE rain with a slight chance of hellfires"

"oh, they're fire and forget all right...they're fired then they forget where the target is"
