Is there a way to add planes into a dgen campaign from the opposite side? I wanted to simulate some Finns flying Spitfires against the Russians, or Germans testing out Yaks, but those are "enemy planes." Any suggestions on a way that works?

I tried it and DGen did not like it at all; it refused to generate the missions. FYI, you need to add the plane class (Eg SPITFIRE5B) to the appropriate .DB and plane*.dat files in the DGen folder. This works for adding 'same side' planes to a campaign, anyway.

The good news is that Lowengin's DCG appears more flexible than DGen, and there was no problem generating a Finnish campaign flying spitfires. Go knock yourself out!
