You have included some great aircraft in AEP, but missed some great oppotunities in the offline Campaign system. IN the online Campaign the war becomes hypothetical (both Axis or Allies can win). In the offline Campaigns they stay on one course, not really altering. Can you not somehow incorporate the online system into some kind of tighter single-player Campaign? One that would allow even a situation to occur where we meet planes such as the GO229, and maybe even the 109Z? You may as well make use of them now we have them. And I mean a Campaign that starts from 1941 and goes hypothetical into 1946.

What you`ve done is great, but, please let`s up the Campaigns for offline players. A little more flexibity please?

Look I offer TWO peace offerings http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif, here`s my artist impression of that GO229 hypothetical 1946 Campaign Scenario! And er, just an old Glocester Gladiater!

Yep that would be cool, all right!

In the meantime maybe someone will make some scripted campaigns like Luthier did for the Bi-1. I really enjoyed that.

Second that.

You might be able to pull something like this off yourself with Pauls DGen thing, or just editing the text files for the existing DCG campaigns. Sure someone out there knows what to do :>

This is really addressed to the wrong person.
Starshoy is the man behind DGen.

I hope he sees this.

Yes, true. Also, it would be nice to incorporate the TB3 I16, Sveno missions with the standard I16 offline campaign missions. Y`know, every 7 or 8 missions you find yourself on a `special` under the wing of an TB3.

Maybe Starshoy will see this here. I could try elsewhere. I also know though that Starshoy tends to talk relatively closely to Oleg on matters like this.

Truth to tell, I don`t expect this to happen because I believe we`re too close to the patch release deadline and Oleg`s in China I believe (unless he`s done it already). But no harm in saying....

I think DCG can already do something like this. I don´t think the wonderplanes are in, but that wouldn´t be impossible to implement...

Starshoy rarely drops in here. SimHQ is the place to get his attention.

Wow! I thought I`d get closer to Starshoy and do what you suggested, but when i filled the registration and posted I got this:

GREAT IDEA!
I had the same!

A career that includes all the flyable planes like G0-229, Xp-80....and you know the rest

oh and btw, why isnt the Spit Vb flyable in the russian career yet??? and the He 162? it saw combat at least once. and why a seperate campaign only for the 110??? it should be incorporated in the "normal" german campaign!

I mean come on...if we can fly the I-153P in the russian campaign....

Oh, yes!

I actually suggested something like this in some other thread around...

A dynamic campaign from Starshoy would be great, but I wouldn't mind some "science-fictional" detailed scripted campaign at all either! Luthier's Bi-1 was very good, as HardBall mentioned... But many other 3rd party mission-makers could do very well. I'm waiting for some good "what if" stuff.
