~S~ All,

I have only recently begun to express an interest in offline campaigns and I am looking for some help.

I am currently on 4.08M and have noticed that for the US and UK air forces the campaigns take place in the Pacific ..... I checked 4.05M (as the 1946 dvd defaults to a new directory, so I have 2 separate installations) and realized that it was the same there. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Did the game ever have any USAAF / RAF campaigns in Europe and if so how do I find them?

I don't mind the pacific theater but thought that it would be nice to have both.

I have seen that there are certain campaigns made by talented and selfless individuals who contribute to this community, but I am hoping to find what might have been included with the original game before Pacific Fighters came out.

Thank you for any assistance.

The requiste maps for a proper campaign of that type in almost allc ases do not exist

However, I direct your attention to the fabolous world of user-made campaigns, and the work of one Paul Lowengrin, and to paid add-ons such as Battle over Europe

I'll only adrerss the first point: user made campaigns http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Whatever career you might wish to pursue in Eurpoe, there's been a campaign for it

Thank you for the response and for the recommendations! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

At least I know the answer so I will begin downloading a few campaigns of interest.

Cheers! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I think there are limited maps and campaigns for the European theater because that is where the next generation of this sim is headed. It would be kind of foolish of the developers to make extensive maps and campaigns for this sim when the next one will cover the Battle of Britain.

That said, there is a semi-official add-on called BOE or Battle Over Europe available from JustFlight.com in the UK. The game developers allowed this add-on to be sold as the add-on developer did quite a bit of free work in creating maps for the sim. Very fast shipping to the US considering it is across "the pond". I have it and enjoyed the multiplayer coops with my squad.
