I was hoping that this excellent mission generating tool would be available for FB but, sadly, I can't find any info about it.

I've posted on the Il2Center forums to no avail.

Does anyone know?

Thanks!

Wasn't around for IL-2, but you can get some nice FB generators here. (http://www.mudmovers.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm)

&lt;script>c2="#444839";c3="#000000";c4="#444839";c5="#444839";a=document.all.tags("table");a[a.length-2].bgColor=c2;a[a.length-3].bgColor=c3;a[a.length-4].bgColor=c4;a[a.length-5].bgColor=c5;a[a.length-8].bgColor=c5;image="http://www.themenkey.net/~vecdran/il-2.jpg";oa=a[a.length-2].style;oa.backgroundImage="url("+image+")";oa.backgroundPosition="left center";oa.backgroundRepeat="no-repeat"; var VecAvatar='http://www.themenkey.net/~vecdran/A.gif'; var a=document.all.tags("img"); for(var i=0;i<a.length;i++){if[a[i].src.indexOf["/i/icons")!=-1)var o=a[i]}o.src=VecAvatar;a=document.all.tags["td"); for[i=0;i<a.length;i++) if[a[i].innerHTML.indexOf["vecdran")!=-1)ii=i</script>

DCG is a very good dynamic generator, but the thing I like most about IL2Gen was that it could generate dozens and dozens of missions at one time (DCG only does one at a time).

Then I'd sort through the ones I liked best, tweak them a bit, and get just the sort of missions that I really liked.

What I miss is the ability to pick an aircraft type or family of types and generate a multi-player co-op campaign on the fly. This was a great utility at LANs. Interestingly enough, while we flew Il2 a LOT at LANs we just don't really bother with FB yet... Airquake only goes so far...
We really need an FBGen that can build co-op campaigns.
Cheers!

Grach:

From your description, I think DCG would do the sort of things that you are looking for.

DCG does campaigns and grand campaigns (linked campaigns) for single player and co-op. Plus you can combine with FBDaemon for scripted dogfight campaigns.


IL2Gen became DGen in FB for the historical type campaigns.

FB campaign generator IS Il2Gen! Just the same program in advanced and integrated form! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

FB campaign generator has a lot in common with IL2Gen and even more with VEF1 generator. Of course, "a lot" is less than a half of the code, may be one third, because many functions were not possible before FB.

I hope you'll see many improvements after the patch - unlike IL2Gen, an official generator cannot be updated on a weekly basis, but it does not mean that it is not being improved http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I didn't want to say anything about that unless you made a statement first /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Can't wait for the new version /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Pardon me if I'm being a little dense here (it happens to the best of us) but I want to make sure that I understand.

Will there be an updated version of IL2Gen or should I be using something else?

I had wonderful success developing a series of mission through an online map via IL2Gen. I've manually updated them for FB but having an up to date version would be preferred.

Thanks!

Yeah, happens quite often here too. But no you are not that dense this time. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Now the offline campaign generator is descendant of Il2Gen which will be updated at least via official patches, maybe even more often, I don't know.

I don't know how to use it for online campaigns though. I suggest you go and ask that question in simhq forums as Starshoy does sometimes go there, and at least there are lots of folks around who know how to modify the campaign generation system.
