Much like Blindmans excellent "2 mins to action" (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3358) missions. Are their any campaigns like this? Of course being historical isn't important and having solid performance is, like not having tons of ground objects. Just tired of seeing loads of ground stuff that has nothing to with my unbearable long flight paths. It just makes my performance suffer.

After playing the "2 mins to action" missions I wanted my campaigns to be similar. Any good ones out there like this?

You can add 'missiondistance' into your config and make the stock campaigns generate missions only certain number of Miles/KM away.

I set it at 50 if I want instant action missions.

From the readme :-

To set your preferred distance to target, set

MissionDistance=nn

Where nn is the distance in kilometers that you prefer to fly to your target. It is not guaranteed that there will be suitable targets in this distance, so you may receive missions with different length of your route.

Add these lines to your Conf.ini under the title [DGEN]



[DGEN]

missiondistance=45

Try Flatspinman's Afrika campaign. Not what I would call "instant action" but operational altitudes are about 2500m, so there's not much of a need to climb up into the ionosphere, and flight times are generally very short.

Wow, I had no idea you can edit this in the config.ini. Although I pretty much only play custom campaigns. Will this work with custom DGEN campaigns found here? (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&c=25) Also I noticed I don't have a DGEN title in my conf.ini file, but I assume its ok to add this to the file. But where should I place it, top, bottom, or does it matter?

Oh and I already played through FlatSpinMans Luftwaffe Pilot: Afrika!. It was good fun no doubt and I also recommend it to offliners.

Yeah mate, its not there in the default, you just add it, I put it near the top.


As for using it with other Dgen campaigns, I am not sure, maybe just try it and see? It obviously wont work with user made static campaigns.

It worked very well for the normal IL2 campaings when I did it, it meant I didnt have to fly 100's of miles to the target each time, which I hate. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There are plenty of options that you can modify in the conf.ini file. I reduce the MaxFLAK setting, as my pc is old and a lot of flak gives me a big hit on fps.
