arquillos, anything you like.   :D

As there are not many squadrons I would recommend Squadron Density set as Ful.

Darned autocorrect  :-[

The HMS ark royal is present in the mission generated, but my squadron is landbased, and the ark royal is not available in squadron editor pannel.

For some reason DCG has ceased to recognise HMS Ark Royal as a carrier. Easy to fix.

Needs to add a text file named shipnames.dcg to Narvik folder. The contents of the file should be:

Code: [Select]
[HMSArkRoyal] CV
  HMS Ark Royal
[EndofFile]

The file has been added to the original download file, so you can also redownload the file.

Issue with mission generation. It seems DCG attempts to give a Swordfish flight a non-existing weapon loadout, breaking the mission.

Confirmed. There has been a major change in Swordfish loadout. Corrected in the download. Thank you for heads-up!

Corrected also those two static planes. They are now visible.
