This is what I intended on doing before I published the USAAF campaign folder, but could'nt get FB to recognise an RAF folder.

Anyway I've sussed it out now. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

So we'll be getting 'authentic' RAF ranks and awards (the game needs seven ranks and strictly speaking there are only six flying ranks - so I've used a non-commision rank as the lowest rank to make up the numbers).

I'll include appropriate music for the menu and for when you crash.
Does "Pomp and Circumstance March no1" (Land of Hope and Glory) seem Ok for the menu's?
And how about "Jerusalem" for the crash track?

I'm hoping to work on an authentic British voice pack.
( see: http://forums.ubi.com/messages/message_view-topic.asp?name=us_il2sturmovik_gd&id=yyzom )
But if the voice pack project doesn't take-off I've worked out how to utilise the existing US voice-pack as a substitute.

So if I make it available, will people want to play it?

Excelent will make a big difference to the game http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just a thought would it be possible to do a campaign where VVS fly against USA and UK, lets say a what if scenario if it had been different at end of ww2 as this could have actualy been a possibility. A sort of start to the cold war kind of thing?

There might be some campaigns for other countries in the future...(To be honest I can't be arsed to do the research but if anyone else wants to - I'd need seven Ranks in ascending order and between 5 and 8 awards with images any image format will do- and also an example 'roundel' for the icon)

Not sure if Sweden can be done - I'll look into it.

This is great news and just for your info...there is nothing incorrect in using non commissioned ranks in your roster..The Brits in their snob appeal used non-commissioned pilots ie Sargent-pilot, for most all their early volunteers that hadn't served in their type of 'ol boys' club...the RAF reserve.:-)

oh and im thinking either the 633 sqdn theme or dambusters one would make a much better soundtrack!

XyZspineZyX
09-14-2003, 09:49 PM
But what will the campaign represent, given the available maps and planes? I'm thinking Battle of France on the Batalon map would be OK, myself.

Great ideea!
Hey if you want FB to recognize a RAF folder, just name it "Gb" not UK, not RAf or anything.
A few months ago I started to make a Hurry campaign during the Battle for France, but after 10 or 11 mision I lacked the time needed to continue. They are mainly escorts, and air cover missions, based on two online maps.
I could send them to You, or even try to continue them, and then send them to you, maybe they would be helpfull.
Ain't too much Great things I originaly created it as for having fun, but who knows?
PM me if You need those files.

A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
landing is one after which they can use the plane again<center>

Damn it extreme_one! i was creating what i thought would be an original BoF RAF campaign- using the Balaton map /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

J/K, anyway - i'm sure yours will be much better than mine - in fact i was thinking of taking a break in production until maybe the ardennes map came out. my lack of knowledge of Dynamic campaigns also throws an additional spanner in production.

there are a few planes available in FB to make such a campaign possible, however it would benefit from a few more.
the Do17 being a notable absence, a few french bombers (and other fighters) wouldn't go amiss either.

part of my campaign is loosely based around the book "fighter pilot" and a quick scout around IL2Skins has rewarded me with some eminently suitable skins. -
the pace and atmosphere of such a campaign i feel may make for a suitably refreshing difference from the usual types of campaign.

seriously though - good luck with the campaign - i for one will download it if you do it /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

just out of interest - i have lent my FB discs to a friend -IIRC they contain info on FMB on a PDF - is it actually possbly to create Dynamic campaigns yourself or do they have to be static?

Static only mate.

*UPDATE*
Good news.
I'll be working with Poymando on the campaign...(BoB!)

The folder structure is complete.

I'm using the theme to The DamBusters for the menu music and the Great Escape March for the crash music! Sound's cool! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

More news soon...

BTW "The Real Deal" USAAF campaign is nearly finished.

Its alright using a nco rank as long as its sgt - there were lots of sgts in fighter command during bob.

Use the BoB theme, the dambusters march and land of hope and glory.
