Vanilla planes & helicopters do work to a certain extent with the carrier, but in general they act bumpy and tend to get damaged when taxiing or landing on the carrier.

@Drexrage76 - is this still an issue? It was supposed to be fixed in 0.102a.

For some reason planes can no longer attach to the catapult on my dedicated server. The landing and IFLOS still work fine, just cant take off

The new update seems to have fixed the error message for me. Thank you very much.

Hopefully the problems with the scrip error have been fixed with 0.102a. If not, let me know.

You can ignore the dimensions log spam, it's not relevant. Anything in the client rpt when it loads the mission? Can you share the mission, might be easiest to reproduce it locally.

When I launch the Map on my server, where I placed the Nimitz the I get the following error message: Dimensions in class ttt_phalanx_restricted should be an array of size 2.
after that the server only puts out "Checking planes and men" and doesnt load the map.

Any idea on how to fix this?
