For WW2 I suggest some DCG campaigns with Finland:

The Winter War
The Continuation War

WWI campaigns for DCG would be nice.  ;)

I only know of this one by Lonestar67 from 2014, made for DBW1916:
https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,40605.0.html

Agreed, but unfortunately DCG cannot handle dates earlier than 1930 or later than 1946. I don't know how Lonestar managed to do that, I can't  :(

The Winter War
The Continuation War

I have made several campaigns in the Winter War and Continuation War and will certainly do them in the future as well.


Hallo,  I think about a campaign based all on japanese seaplanes, moving from little isles seabases against naval allied forces , allied submergibles or supplies convoys.

Hi!
I would like to fight at the beginning of the Allied offensive over Europe. Operations Circus, Rhubarb, night intruder flights etc. But of course also on the German side as Abbeville Boys - on early FW-190 types etc.  :)
Regards

Taken into consideration. Thank You!

Personally I would like to see a Lancaster campaign. Sure doing the same night raiding routine would get stale after awhile but having different targets with different levels of defenses could mean for either suicide mission into the heart of the Rhineland or a calming raid on the Tirpitz. The campaign could include Operation Chastise or a fictional Lancaster raid on key Japanese cities as part of Tiger Force.


I have thought and planned a nightbomber/nightfighter campaign. However, that is not an easy task to do. It may come out one day, but don't hold your breath. But I will certainly use Lancaster in the future.


Currently I'm finishing a small Pacific campaign, should be out in a few days. Next on my to-do-list is a campaign for a Fairey Barracuda. That should come out by the end of this year.

I don't know what he did, but the dates are displayed correctly when playing the campaign.

Here are a few examples from the Somme campaign files that have dates:

  Map=Somme17
  Date=01/01/1917

That is true. Don' t know how. I have tested both JTW and DOF modules with DCG but been unable to make it work. I'll do some further  testing.

I was wrong. DCG works in DOF module without a glitch. I stand corrected. 

That means I probably will make WWI campaigns in neat future (early 2023, I assume)


However, I cannot make DCG work in JTW.  Possibly there is a bug in my hastily-created test mission. I'll keep on testing.

Are you using Il2_dit - Il2 data intergration tool for DCG by Sniper? It might be useful for this.

I guessed as much ;)
Hope you have luck with JTW, early carrier jets would be great! But WWI, TGA sounds interesting too.
