Question.... in Cliffs if you started your engine and then taxied and shut down again, if I remember you would be kicked/despawned...

Is this the same in BoX? I.e. if you join the server, fire up your aircraft and taxi out of the spawn point and then parked up waiting for everyone else to join (save fuel, etc) would your aircraft remain on the server for a period? or indefinitely?

There's an idle-kick timer but we have it disabled, so we won't encounter any issues with this.

Our connection method worked. 10 pilots connected in less than 10 minutes and ready on the runway for take off in 15 minutes total. I believe we can connect the entire ACG campaign pilots the same way and then enable us to all take off at mission start an hour and a half later...

The results of your test are promising, but whether it's as effective when the server is under load remains to be seen. We'll test it further next week with more units, and see how we go.

Happy to run that Luft to go through with them what they need to do beforehand and to get their guys ready.
