Is it common to have the same target for multiple missions?

Yes, it is.  :(

I think DCG tends to assign targets based on level of importance. If you are flying air superiority missions a lot over the same area - it could be a key location.

I am currently working on a Autumn/Winter '44 Campaign with lesson learned from my 41-43 campaign with fewer objects (to speed up loading times and reduce lag) but more location types that will trigger more mission variety (...for the Allied pilots). This will be focused on the aerial engagements of the units tasked with Reich Defense after the Great Retreat. It will be pretty cool because there USAAF and RAF units on the European continent operating from bases in France and Belgium during this period of the WWII.

I would be interested in that Campaign X Man. My system is feeling subpar with Lowengrins DCG.

The campaign appears to be working correctly. Getting start dates correct hasn't worked.

By default it wanted to start me November 1940. I changed it to 10 July 1940 and it started me 8 August.

Other than that the campaign appears to be working but I only have a couple Freijagd in so far.

Uther - Sometimes the timetable.dcg controls the campaign, so despite changing the date in the DCG GUI - the next campaign starts with what is in the DCG. Change dates isn't recommend unless you just want to to auto generate mission - so in that case you need a different DCG mode.

Example: My Channel Front '41 - '43 campaign is designed to start on Dec 21 1940 - Mar 19 1944 and run for a specific time for each phase, changing the date at the beginning of each campaign will break flow (...so it will abruptly end). That's why they are called campaigns verses randomly generated missions.  ;)

If you run my campaign and change the dates after starting Spring '42 - you will miss the Channel Dash missions. I spent a lot of time tweaking the timetable.dcg to get the battle group to appear at the right time and to get the Swordfish to attack.

If you change the dates during the Summer '42 Campaign - you will miss the Deippe Raid (...I guess the don't call it a failed invasion).

Ok, my version of Battle of Britain is ready.  :)

Just some final testings and tweakings. Expect it to be downlodable in 24 hours.

Wow just ran across this! Awesome job Shakaali - I will play this weekend! I may tweak my '41 - '43 campaign after playing yours so both campaigns can run seamlessly concurrently.

Thanks, JG7_X_Man   :D

Good idea combining the two campaigns. I'm quite busy IRL at the moment, but I may be able to give you a hand.
