    Hi!
    As suggested by -exec-, franz did an improvement at TH .pos feature.
    .pos feature means: when you type .pos at radio, a msg will sent to all folks from your country, telling your position, altitude and heading. Cool isnt?
    yes, but not enough for our little padawans...
    They complained, ask for, and (specially) SUGGEST some changes...

    And Im proud to announce the first TH tweak pointed by our community:
    The Whole New .pos Feature!

    Now you can type at radio
    .pos
    and a follow message will be sent to all pilots of your country:
    vibora: i'm at 5.5.3.3 angels33(10000m) heading to N(0)
    or when you type
    .pos 110
    the same msg will be sent only to your squad, the same for channels 100, 101, 103 or private channel...

    also (thats real cool! <S!> exec&franz)
    when you diving, the msg is
    vibora: i'm at 5.5.3.3 angels30(9900m) diving to S(180)
    when you slow climb, the msg is
    vibora: i'm at 5.5.3.3 angels10(3000m) climbing to W(270)
    when you running up from acks, the msg is
    vibora: i'm at 5.5.3.3 angels0.3(30m) zooming to NNE(60)
    when you... err... fuck! I forgot the fifth verb...
    asap I tell! :)

    BTw: I humbling suggest that you add some keyboard shortcuts, one for each channel (except private, obviously)

    comments welcome!

    Now the pilot not only inform his position, alt and heading, but also inform plane flying:
    vibora: i'm at 5.5.3.3 angels30(9900m) diving to S(180) 190A4
    (or something like that! :) )



    btw my shortcuts:


    ctrl+F1 = .pos 101
    ctrl+F2 = .pos 100
    ctrl+F3 = .pos 103
    ctrl+F4 = .pos 110

    That is shame to ask such questions, tigrou :)

    run FHL -> Options -> Create Alias/Template

    You can create any template/alias you like, e.g. I use the following:
    alt +
    q w e
    a s d
    z x c

    + some others
    - for jeep/tank movement, like ".hmack 225", ".hmack 180", etc.

    alt-f for ".field f" alias
    ctrl-t for ".showdata" and ".showhits" template

    and others..

    But where are 2 problems:
    1st. You can't type too many text or commands in one alias/template cause server (FH server) will kick you from arena (it will count you as spammer). So if you are going to lauch the set of command macros, you need to use different channels (like 100,101,102,... 110). And if you are going to make spam messages you need to make two (or more) aliases/templates instead of one. I didn't test TH for "spam" and don't know how it will work on Taba.

    2nd. You able assign template/alias for channel number only (1..104, 110, 201), not radio number (1,2,3,4). So you can send messages to channel 100, 101, 103, 110, 201, 1..99 or even pilot nickname. But if you change your private channel number, you need change it in FHL as well.

    2vibora:
    Can it be possible to make radio 200, for example, to be the default radio for private channel?..
    So it can be done in the following way:
    1. user login to server
    2. user changes the private channel radio to xx for example
    3. user presses macro alt-z for typing "ju52 is near field, time plz?" (macro was set in FHL to ch200 before)
    4. and all guys on channel xx get his macro message
    But.. really.. that's not so important. There are many another great things which we can use on Taba :)

    PS: BTW .pos result coordinates didn't correspond to my map :)
    PPS: I was flying f1/f5 area

    hmmm... I do not know, lets wait franz read it! :)
    But, I think is importatnt becouse its part of a strategy to boost team play. (mean, if we turn communications more easy and precise (among other initiatives), we will see more and more missions involving fighters, jabos, buffers and transporters, at least in our POV)

    I didnt understad why u need a default private channel :)

    If everyone logs and get set channel default, why dont you use #100? :)
    or for your contry, use #101 or #103 :)

    well, I didnt get the point, can u explain better?

    because , raiders use a special channel to avoid spyers: ususaly it is ch 01 until 99, by using a ch from 201 to 299, macro .pos work only for raiders channel.
