Vsevolozhsk_Airfield (2/3 sized factory)

The waypoints "other than airfields" have two storage bunkers, and 3 AA guns.  When fully stocked they will have 15 Blue/Red troops showing


=======================================================

RAILROADS

Both sides have 2 trains, each of which can carry 2 columns.  Trains need one mission to unload, where the ground units will have to sit and are unmovable.



I hope you enjoy the campaign.

Thanks everyone for participating in the test missions yesterday.  Seems like the plane set is pretty well matched - I see some fierce dogfights ahead :).

I have temporarily disabled the commander log-ins as I reset the campaign and will be tweaking the ground unit locations to spread things out a little, plus to move some units that had traveled too far.  Once complete I will back up the campaign files and turn things back on - hopefully no later than Wednesday.

As mentioned prior, I will be participating on Sunday's only, but should be there for a short time this Friday for the kick off, just to make sure it starts OK.

We should be good to go.  I've re-enabled the commander access to the unit movement web application, so commanders you can move things around.

Thanks for all the hard work Rel.  So is Friday evening the formal kick-off for the new campaign?
The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are: "Why is it doing that?" "Where are we?" and "Oh Shit!"

This Friday? I just wish the weather were ready now! in 2 days the weather is suppose to start cooling, we had record? breaking over 100 degree temps, so everyone here is uncomfortable until it cools and rains..

Seeing this first mission ending at 6:00PM and being practically pitch black, I figured I should adjust the start times slightly.

I've located the settings that dictate the range of the mission start time (which is determined by the generator randomly picking a time of day between these two values).  Currently (and for pretty much all campaigns that I can remember), the start time range is as follows:

StartTime=8.0 (8 AM)
EndTime=15.0 (3 PM)

With the campaign being in September, and Finland being so high in latitude it gets dark earlier than other campaign locations.  To account for this, I can change the EndTime property to 14.0 (2 PM), then the missions should end no later than 5:00PM.  I think the value is decimal, so 2:30 PM would probably be 14.5, but to be safe I'd like to just use a whole number :) ).

Let me know if there are any objections.  Otherwise, starting on the next mission, the mission start time should be between 8:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
