Hi Wind.

Have you found a solution for the "bug" with the Ar-196 in the recon sub-campaign? DCG still generates only transfer missions instead of armed recons,no matter if I set the "action Radius" to the max. or check/uncheck the "no transfers option" in the DCG panel.seems like DCG can´t handle a floatplane on this map?

regards

Have not found a solution yet for the Ar-196 generating only transfer missions.  Likely best is if you wish to fly an Ar-196 campaign is to fly as a flight lead position and go "hunting" with your flight.  I included a road route and sea lane mission file to allow the player to become familiar with where the routes and lanes are on the map (paste these .mis files into a Missions/Campaigns/GB/recon/ folder and open in FMB to view).  This will help flying armed recon as you can fly over those lanes while on the way to the transfer base.  Additionally, for the Ar-196, you can likely update the weapons loadout via the DCG UI to include ordinance for all flight types to be sure there are bombs attached even for a transfer mission.

Of note, there is also a "bug" tied to spawn points for the AR-196 (seaplanes) at some bases.  I believe this is a map issue as the planes spawn in the water, but immediately explode.  The explosion is not caused by loadout, but rather something with the map (perhaps elevation?).  I have seen this on some of the African coast spawn bases for seaplanes.  Fix here is that if you are transfered to a north African seaplane base that is known to be a bug, set DCG via DCG UI to base plane at different base before generating next mission.

All in all, will continue to flush out issues in the campaign, and may make some other tweaks for the period plane set.  May also add a RAAF/SAAF fighter campaign to get some Aussies in to fly with, along with perhaps a US fighter/attack campaign which will both start a little later in the timeline.

G'day Wind,

This is looking good. I like that idea of adding RAAF/SAAF and US campaigns.

Cheers

Thank you!

One thing I've noticed though which, I may not be 100% on but the Italian fighter squadrons all seem to be AS squadrons and one BT. I think these were actually mainly bomber squadrons...like for example, 279 AS was a squadron that if I am not mistaken flew SM 79s. The fighter squadrons I believe were for example: 360 Squadriglia CT or 378 Squadriglia CT. I believe this was the case in the original version as well that did not work with HSFX 6.17

I would somehow change this myself but I am quite a novice at things such as this

EDIT: found a link that kind of explains what i am getting at as CT means land fighter and AS means Torpedo aircraft

Another thing I noticed was I can only choose zg26 for a German fighter pilot no 7_jg 26?

thanks for the feedback!  Excellent finds regarding the italian squad detail.  I will update accordingly as I see what and where updates are necessary in the dcg campaign code.  Also, great find with the german fighter squad, that is actually a defect as 7_jg26 does not exist in hsfx.  I will change to IV_JG26 as that is the closest existing match.

Keep the feedback coming in!  Refinements are fairly easy as long as its in DCG code!

Ok.Thanks.Hmmm,that´s very sad.I love the Ar-196 and these "transfer Missions" are real immersion killers.Let´s hope for a solution  in the future. There´s enough other subcampaigns to play with.  ;)

Wind,I´ll put a link for this Mediterranean topic into my DGen/DCG collection thread,ok?
