Title: Russo/Finland Continuation 1942 campaign progress
Post by: AKA_Relent on July 23, 2017, 08:32:41 pm
S! guys,

Worked on the Russo/Finland Continuation 1942 campaign this weekend.  Finished the road and rail network, mostly done with the factories, waypoint depots, and started working on the airfield objects.  My fingers and wrists need a break with all that keyboard and mouse action lol.  I'll continue as I have time, but it'll probably be another week before I'm ready to start generating missions and update the web site.  A small image showing the playground is shown below (sorry, max file attachment size is 128 kb :) ).

As a reminder, here's the plane set - you can always create quick missions and practice offline going up against the opposing AI aircraft for now ;).

I've been working on the campaign a few hours again today.... time to take a break.  However, I'm just about done modifying all of the campaign files except the aircraft file, which I'll work on next time.  After that, I'll generate a few missions and see how it looks.  I'll also work on the web site at that point, as I need to take a screen shot of the relevant section of the map and get it configured on the server, etc.

I'll see if I can spend some time on it tomorrow, have to see how it goes.

I won't be able to attend the practice this evening. Stephanie's last day at her waitress job is this evening and we are going to crash the place to celebrate!
See ya'll on Tuesday.
Red, I'll see you on Monday if not today during the day.

Worked on the campaign for another few hours today... boy I'm glad they last 20 missions each side now, it's a killer on the hands/wrists/forearms lol...

I'm trying to get the web site up and running so bear with me if you see server errors when trying to open the campaign map.

Valmis!

(Finished, in Finnish ;) )

There is a slight caveat... I still need to reset the campaign and move units using the generator to their pre-campaign jump-off positions.  But, I need a break so I'll get to this over the next few days.  Also, I may make some tweaks, but I think it's in a good spot.  Each side has 8 airfields, which is why I didn't put a huge number of aircraft at each airfield.  I did generate a few missions without any human intervention and didn't see any problems yet.  We would need to do a few test missions just to make sure.

However, I did take the last mission generated and transferred it to the server, so we have a dogfight mission up - thanks for your patience.

Also, as you may have noticed, the web site is up, so you can see the map.  I have everyone as blue except Jericho and Hangten, I couldn't remember who the third pilot was that's flying with the AI.

Not sure what mod you're referring to Ram.  When attaching to posts on this forum, there's a limit to how big the images can be - unless you're using another site to host the image.  I'm not an admin so if you have a way for us non-admins please share :).

I noticed the map doesn't show many of the town names, so I'll add some text next to the waypoints and airfields so they are easier to identify without having to mouse-over.

Thanks Ram, so yeah, you're basically hosting the image somewhere else :).

OK, I updated the campaign map, marking in green text the airfield towns/waypoint towns that were not shown at the detail level I created the map from.  Also, I put "FACTORY" near the 4 factory areas, along with a light reddish circle where the factories are.

Hopefully that will help the commanders so they can see where the waypoints/airfields are on another browser as they make their moves.

I'll try to work on the finishing touches of the campaign by this Saturday.  Hopefully if all goes well, it would be good to try a test mission (or two 90 minutes missions) on Sunday at the usual time.

Hey Wayno - not sure what you mean... I see listed as D.XXI... etc.

Also, it's a Fokker:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker_D.XXI

I know it's nothing to shake a stick at, but it flew with the FAF so I figured it's good to have it included (when the heck else would we ever fly it?! :) ).
