I've now posted a campaign, that is in a way a tribute to Checkyersix and his outstanding contributions to the IL-2 modding community, not least when it comes to simulating Nightfighting! It is a semi-historical, 8-mission static campaign, set in early 1944, and incorporating a number of his great Mods, not least his "Command and Control" mod, which I think is quite revolutionary when it comes to gameplay!



You can download it here: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads3&file=details&id=841

In this you are a German Night Fighter pilot, flying the Heinkel He-219 Uhu, facing ever stronger night attacks by the British RAF, including an increasing threat from enemy Nightfighters and Intruders. But you will also get better radar and electronic counter measures.



Most mission will involve finding and attacking big RAF bomber streams, on their way to or back from target (but avoid attacking them OVER the target, as you will probably be shot at by friendly AA artillery). But you will also be involved in other missions, like hunting for Allied mine layers, or intercepting high-altitude recce aircraft.



This campaign requires that you, besides Ultrapack 2.01, have the following MODS installed:

The Heinkel He-219 Uhu by Checkyersix and 101tfs

The Command and Control Mod by Checkyersix
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13289.0.html
The Happy Valley Map by Checkyersix and Asheshouse
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,3554.msg35627.html
The Halifax B Mk III by Ranwers and Charlie Chap
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,1071.0.html
The Avro Lancaster by Ranwers
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,4359.0.html
The Wellington Mk III by Ranwers.
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,2737.0.html

I also recommend that you use the Sniper Turret Gunner Fix, also by Checkyersix, to get a more realistic behavior from the bombers defensive MG gunners: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13045.0.html.



There is a random element in this campaign, with the individual mission having small variations, for instance regarding weather, spoof raids and enemy night fighters presence. And in some missions you might actually be directed to a friendly aircraft, so be sure that you identify your target before attacking! In the later missions is it is also possible that you will have much more limited fuel – reflecting the increasing pressure that the Luftwaffe found itself under, not least logistically. So even if you replay the campaign, it will not be exactly the same. (All missions comes in three variants, the game picking one at random.)



Select a high starting rank, like Major. Regarding difficulty: select the "No Icons" and “No padlock” options! And also keep the map icons options "OFF"! This campaign is built for (and requires) Checkyersix's GREAT Command and Control MOD, which will, for the first time, make it possible to actually simulate real WW2 Night Fighter combat, with you receving directions both from a Ground Controller and from your own on-board Radar operator. And also experience some Electronic Warfare counter measures by the enemy.



A successful intercept depends on you following the directions. Just following the way-points on the map will not be enough.





Included in this campaign is 6 skins: made by Gumpy, Donaghy and VP Media. Thanks guys for your effort!

I really think he should change his title from "Ambassador" to "Patron Saint of NachtJager"
The more night fighter campaigns/missions the better!

just to make sure I wasnt being led on a wild goose chase (not that I dont trust the awesomeness that is CY6) I kept the path and icons on and you know what
command and control put me within 200 metres of the target after guiding me from 127km away
also I know this is almost blasphemous  but I prefer the bf-110g4' it idoesnt stall and it is can cruise really slowly perfect for sitting directly under A bomber for ten minutes and then filling him up with schrage music :) it can also be very fast when you want it to be
 now how do I put command and control in my own campaigns?
