Title: Modern Jets Campaigns?
Post by: OverDhill on January 13, 2020, 09:36:12 PM
Is there any campaigns that have the F16 in them?

I looked through the BAT campaign list for JET Age and didn't see any for the F16.  Your link didn't go to one

Uhm, yes it does?

But the question is if this relatively old campaign is BAT 3.7 compatible from a loadout perspective. It may need a bit of rework.

The link does work, but the campaign does indeed seem to need work. I tried the first three missions. The first opens with what appears to be an exercise in cubism.

Missions 2 and 3 began with a good cockpit view, but the aircraft is imbedded to its wings in the runway, and within seconds it explodes.

Whether or not this is related to loadouts is beyond my level of expertise. I'm a quick study, though.  ;D

it is loadouts.

Thank you, vampire. It shouldn't be too difficult to alter the loadouts themselves, especially as there are only ten missions in the campaign. The problem for me would be determining which loadouts are viable for each mission type. Do reference tables for such loadouts exist? If so, could you please recommend a source (or sources) of information in this regard?

Hi Ehood,

1) Download the Single Mission Community Packs (https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,62119.0.html).
2) Identify the Israel-Lebanon War set in the packs.
3) Copy the missions from the packs to your Israel-Lebanon War campaign folder.
4) Loadout issue solved. Enjoy.

This looks like a completely different issue...

I can revisit this campaign and make it up to date if people want.

It would be nice to have it updated.  Thanks

Looks like I will have to rework missions as well. I thought it would just be a matter of changing the load outs for the aircraft, but came across serious issues on mission #2. May take a bit but I’ll get to it. You can always make changes in the FMB to suit your needs as well.

I should note that whistler's advice, regarding the Single Mission Community Pack, did work. I'm now at mission 5; so far, everything is behaving as it should.

With many thanks to whistler, and all concerned.  ;D
