You are not understanding. For every vehicle exist one pilot. For example: if there are 4 vehicles in the map, there are 4 pilots. Each pilot with your vehicle. Understand now? If you are a pilot, you will only respawn near your vehicle.

And what if a noob or a smacktard spawns with the limited pilot kits (i.e. if they are limited to 4). And a veteran then cant? Plus, I dont know if its possible to limit spawnables. Lastly, what about things like bombers with many slots and gunners?

I understand, but I dont think it will work very well. First of all, who gets to be the pilot? At the beginning of the round everyone spawns at the same time. And, as Cadyshack pointed out, what about vechiles with multible slots. If your idea is codable, it would probably turn every vechile into a mobile spawn point, that Im not very fond of. And if there are as many pilots on a map than there are planes, problems, some of which I allready pointed out, will arise. (Most importantly, what if the pilot bails and the plane gets destroyed ) The idea of giving players pilot kits after they enter the plane is quite similar to yours, it just doesn't include spawning next to vechiles. I believe that this would work better on public servers: You cant drive a vechile without getting a pilot kit, and, at the same time, if you cant get a vechile, you can wage war with your weapon of choice rather than camp for the plane/tank.

If a noob or smacktard takes up a spot in the pilot kit roster then it should be codeable to make the kit have the same properties as the commander so that you could mutiny them out or if they just died then someone else could take their spot(btw veterans shouldn't get special treatment on public severs, it's fun for all). It would be a great idea if pilots spawned right next to their planes(not in them) without having to pick up a kit at the beginning of the round making the round start sooner without all the running around and associated kit dropages. Also, it should be possible for the secondary positions to be coded so that anyone can enter, and maybe if in a plane once it is going they can't get out without a parashoot :P.

i doubt i would ever want to fly a plane again. This is a GAME, people, people might actually want to "learn" how to play, there are such things called "beginners", and most incredibly, it's supposed to be fun. Ok, maybe have it so only pilots can enter planes, but otherwise? Typical case of insane historical accuracy/realism versus gameplay. And considering this is a game, i would pick gameplay.

he means tankcommander, but we already have those. However, making aircraft only pilotable by pilots and tanks only pilotable by tankers is an interesting concept.
