.........hey that rhymes

G'day all

Being a lazy so and so, with a less than adequate rig that stops me from being to adventuress, I'd like to see the Target Tab in QMB expanded to include more options, here a few ideas.

Convoy: Would be a dedicated anti-shipping mission with say 5 to 10 Merchantmen escorted by a Destroyer (perfect for Ju-88, He111, B25, A20 and Beaufighter missions).

Harbour: A dock facility with plenty of inviting targets. (like the backdrop to the P40 in the installation slide show).

Rail Head: A marshalling yard full of big fat trains with volatile cargos (perfect for P38, P47 and P51 drivers).

There you go, food for thought, yet highly expendable.

A good idea Spudkopf, but the same limitation applies to this as to the addition of more maps. Meaning it is a Large undertaking requiring a heap of work. As can be seen by the slightly 'buggy' 'Islands8' addition in the Aces QMB, and the complete exclusion of Uberdemon's attempt at a Leningrad map, it is a complex and dificult issue.

G'day ZG77_Lignite

Thanks for the info in regards to the complexity of QMB, it is much appreciated.

Spudkopf,
Go to the Mission Builder's Forum and ask about Quick Mission Templates. While not exactly what you are asking for here, these templates are a straightforward workaround for what's missing from the QMB.

G'day Greenhorn

At first glance looks interesting, I have actually been putting off going to that forum, what with Netwings, Ju-88, ww2fighters.org, Oleg Maddox's Ready Room, IL-2 Paint Schemes Forum, General Discussion (IL-2 Related), Pacific Fighters and many other non Il2 Forums, I spend more time reading than flying.

Not to mention that I was afraid if I ventured there I'd find a lot of really cool well made missions that would just sink my poor old system.

Thanks for the heads-up anywho.....
