yes, with the planesXXX.dat in combination with the ops files you can do a lot of variation and immersion, that´s the high art of dgen campaign building :)

... and classesXxx.dat.
I have in mind the "roles" assigned to planes:
ALL
Fighter
Jabo
Ground
Tank
Are there any other "roles", like Recon, Ships etc, "accepted" by DGen?

Hi Boelcke,

I've got your new files you sent, and should hopefully have time to test them in the next few days, will report back either here or at UP forums 8)

I've noticed one "bug":
When DGen generates oDeFTransfer mission - when player "changing base" and escorting some transport planes - DGen "suggests" one from offensive armaments (bombs, pods, rockets).
I've "Transfer" line in *Planes.dat for this user plane.
How can I solve this?

... EDIT: RECON should also work...
Can You test this for Bf109F5 and F6 ?

not easy to answer ... it´s possible that it depends on the concerning line in the ops files, transfer loadout will be used, if your plane is the first

DeTransfer           4Y 4F

but that´s a speculation, the only way is to test it with trial and error.


Can You test this for Bf109F5 and F6 ?

sorry, i´m in the mid of a huge project with campaigns and skins, realy a lot of things to do atm, so i don´t have time for testing, cause all dgen testing is trial and error, extremly time consuming

but you can do it by yourself, add this plane to one existing german campaign in the classesXXX.dat file, together with the concering planesXXX.dat and XXXXXXplanesXXX.dat files, i think you have the knowledge of the meaning of the campaign files

I did tests a few days ago, without success. This is the reason why I ask the Master  :)
My "initial conditions":
5 BF_109F5_DZZ
5 BF_109F6_DZZ             in .DB file
BF_109F5_DZZ RECON
BF_109F6_DZZ RECON     in classesXxx.dat
Axis    Germany    FRecon        BF_109F5_DZZ   600   4000   5000   R3    8
Axis    Germany    Reconplane  BF_109F5_DZZ   550   4000   5000   default    8
Axis    Germany    FRecon        BF_109F6_DZZ   600   4000   5000   R3    8
Axis    Germany    Reconplane  BF_109F6_DZZ   550   4000   5000   default    8         in   xxxxxxxPlanes.dat
oDeReconEscort 10622:50509         VVS 4F 2T       LW 1R 4Y
oDeReconEscort 10622:50509         VVS 4F 2P       LW 1R 4Y
oDeReconEscort 10622:50509         VVS 4F 1R       LW 1R 4Y
oDeReconEscort 10622:50509         VVS 4F 4F       LW 1R 4Y 4F 4F
oDeReconEscort 10622:50509         VVS 4F        LW 1R 4Y 3B 4F              in   opsxxxxxxx.dat

DGen generates new missions in campaign but I've no BF_109F5_DZZ/BF_109F6_DZZ as a recon to escort.
It seems that the opsxxxxx.dat file is too large and the number of trials is too small  :)  ,
but we can "use" Bf-109F5 and F6 as RECON, in the new campaigns  :)

The ops file isn´t to  large, you can put nine variations for each mission type into it, means you can do nine DeReconEscort missions into it. But is there any other Recon plane in the xxxxplanesXXX.dat, if so dgen chooses a Recon plane random, it can be the BF_109F5_DZZ or another assigned Recon plane. Delete alle the other assigned Recon planes in the xxxxplanesxxx.dat file and try again.

And you have to assign the BF_109F5_DZZ as RECON not as FRecon in the xxxxplanesxxx.dat.

Nine missions in opsxxxxx.dat - Is it minimum in this file?  I tried to create "monothematic" opsxxx file for Ju-88Torp but "not working".
But is there any other Recon plane in the xxxxplanesXXX.dat, if so dgen chooses a Recon plane random, it can be the BF_109F5_DZZ or another assigned Recon plane. Delete alle the other assigned Recon planes in the xxxxplanesxxx.dat file and try again.
You are right, other planes flying as recon.
And you have to assign the BF_109F5_DZZ as RECON not as FRecon in the xxxxplanesxxx.dat.
... but there are no Recon type of mission in xxxxxPlanes.dat for other planes. There are FRecon or Reconplane ONLY for other planes.
Syntax RECON I'm trying in classesxxxx.dat as new "role" and DGen working with no errors.

I will notify "all the world" when my DGen generate 109F5 or 6 as RECON  :)

DGen.exe in HEX view

... no RECON or similar string
We have strings like this:

wishful thinking ?

Not nine missions in ops file - the max. is nine missions for each mission type, means max. nine DeReconEscort, nine DePatrolCluster, etc.

And you can´t do only one type of missions in the ops file - for bombers i´m not sure. For Fighters there some MUST haves, a fighter campaign only works if there are ReconIntercept mission in the ops file included. Sometimes they are crashing when no FreeHunt missions included, but not every time. It´s all very special and with many exceptions.
