Title: Next IL2 1946 Campaign
Post by: AKA_Taipan on March 20, 2016, 09:50:36 am
Salute Gents,
I hope you are enjoying the Korea campaign but it is time to pick the next campaign.
Please vote within the next week so Rel can work on it.
Failure to vote will result in me picking something involving sheep!
And you don't want that...do you?


Cheers

Tai

Maybe someday we can do something like shockingly different.
I know Ram has a few ideas about what we could be doing to shake things up a bit, to keep interest.

BTW no worries! The list of choices is great!
Its good that there are at least 7 workable maps! That makes this game a true classic, no matter what has come out since.  I enjoyed the France map(I guess that's western Europe)

This is really my first time to fly a whole campaign with the group. I know you guys have done a lot and I dont really know what all has been flown.

I'm gonna let the guys who have flown way more than me pick the next one. I will fly what ever the main group wants to.

I voted Burma for a couple reasons...

COD fills the RAF vs Germany need, BoS fills the Russia vs Germany need, nothing fills the USAAF/RAF vs Japan need like IL2/46 :).

The 1944/45 CBI theater offers some good late war aircraft like the P51, P47, P38 plus the P40, B25, P61 and B17/B24/B29.   Still need more research but will wait to see what wins the poll :)

Before I vote on a campaign choice, someone please let me know which campaign offers the P-38. I don't want to hear ... Sorry Grey, the P-38 is not available until following year in this campaign. Rel sort of alluded to the Burma of 44/45. That would mean J's and L's. What time frame we looking at for the Italian campaign?

Not sure, we'd need to see what folks want.   Probably early/mid 44 since that's when most of the action was.  And yes, Burma would have P38's, late 44 onward (so probably P38L Late)

Unfortunately Grey will be assigned to a Buffalo squadron in Burma and p400s in Italy :)

Anyone else who has participated and/or plans to participate in the next campaign left to vote?   Looks like either way we have interest in two possible campaigns (the next one and the one following :) ).

If it remains a tie, in the last poll Burma was second, so I would suggest we fly Burma first followed by Italy unless there are any objections?

Tai,  Open both eyes please. What tie? Burma is kicking Italys arse.

Jer, there were Buffalos in Burma? I thought Taipans sheep ate all thier food and they died off!

Also Rel, you did see Buckys message about being assigned to a side for this next half of our Korean campaign. I think Bucky is looking to fly on the North Korean side. At least thats what I hope for anyway. I sort of gave him secure info on a one of Jerichos plans, so in order to protect that info I reccomend that you put him on the dark side. Or Jericho will spend most of this next campaign making me pay for my sin.

Looking forward to the next campaign!
I will need some schoolhouse time with Rel or someone to learn how to set up the game; move AI, etc.
Also, I will be away from about the 6th to the 14th of June for a graduation and visit to the NE.
I'd like a Second who can do that stuff also, just in case I can't get to a computer while away.

I can be reached via email:  jdkpcorr@gmail.com

Rgr Agile, once I've got enough of the campaign files ready and the web portion done, I can meet with you and Grey to show you how the commander process works.

Thanks Agile for posting on this and Thanks Rel for the quick reply. I am somewhat in the same boat as Agile on this and similar needs. Jericho as said that he would be willing to act as my second on the days I would not be there, but Im not sure how the sides are going to be selected so Jer might not even be on my side. So I will need a second for doing some of these movements.

Also I will be out of town from June 17th though June 26th. So hoping that the campaign would not start until at least the 1st of July.

S!
I will be able to serve as a second if needed.
Prefer to start in July, we are in the middle of moving.
34 years of stuff to go through.

Getting there with the campaign... I'd say its about 90% there...  I have to add a few items and make a few corrections to the campaign files after I generated a few missions to test, but it's almost there.  I also need to look at the plane counts, I just put some down for now to get things going.  I added a few extra plane types (those towards the bottom of the plane lists) for AI. However, I'd like them to also spawn over other bases besides the supply base so things aren't so predictable.  This is why they have higher counts than the others as the AI will lose them all after a few missions I'm sure.

The map is pretty big, sorry about the size of the image on the web site.  If I reduce it it'll probably make things too hard to see so hopefully you guys are OK with it the way it is.   I also need to create another logo to replace the korea one :).

Need to take a break, my hands hurt from all the typing, clicking and moving the mouse, lol.
