IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad / Next Campaign
« Last post by AKA_Scorp on March 08, 2019, 01:04:28 pm »
Hi Guys,

Back home in the frozen North,  I thought it was chilly in Southern California this year but it's much worse here.

So as we start thinking about the next campaign the first thing we need to put together is the plane set.  Once we have a possible plane set I can put it on the Expert server and we can start testing it.

There are not a lot of ways to limit how many of each AC are available but I think we can make certain models premium or "best plane" as Coconut calls them.  This might limit how many of the best AC are around.

In the mean time I have upgraded the campaign software to the latest version, it was last changed mid February so it looks as if the revisions on it are slowing down.  There may be one soon to fix any changes in the latest BoX patch.  I have also updated the stats software so that should be back online.

You can see who is on the servers here:

So if we can have some suggestions I can make a start on making t he file and getting it on the server.

I learned a couple things while hacking missions... with the mission editor... I can add aircraft to airfields...… but the rest of everything can be so freaking complicated,,, I am only guessing what I am doing...
so, when we get new aircraft, tanks, etc.. I can add those on my missions that I took and hacked...

so I suppose that new items can be added fast and then the mission saved as updated, but adding routes, times, and exceptions will be a more lengthy process...

I would propose that if there are groups of patches coming out very often, maybe just add important things first priority, like if someone buys and newly released object, aircraft, add those...
and then al the complicated things, take your time...
that was we can at least fly..... whether or not you decide if we count that mission to the campaign or not is up to you, but at least those that want to fly will come and fly. And thus not have to wait for a complicated update... to be done by the only 1, 2, or 3 people that can do complicated updates...

I guess that describes the problem with making campaign progress. Can't be done with upgrades appearing randomly.
Its always going to be there so we might as well find a way to deal with it.

First thing in dealing with it is to acknowledge that this problem will never go away.

So how do we maintain a campaign progress through these upgrades?
Are we screwed?

I still suck at flying formation, but not as bad as I used to be.  It was nice to watch you and Mo go up in a loop.  Pretty tight I would say.

Yeah I have that bookmarked.  Will watch it in the next day or so.
Thanks Gos - I started the campaign web sites/stats, and scheduled the expert and normal campaigns, see how it goes.

LOL Grey, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't!  :).  Yeah it's a little annoying getting back to back updates, but I'm glad to see they are serious about providing updates/fixes.  Would you rather they didn't update the sim for a year while you were waiting/hoping for some fixes or new content? :D  Double edged sword I guess.

Edit - BTW, here's what the second update was for, which was nice as the gun convergence was bugged on some planes (e.g. IL2, which I noticed after Tuesday):

I haven't watched yet, but Spudknocker's are usually pretty good.
