Battles of the Jordan 1918
A Dynamic Campaign for DCG and BAT

First Battle of the Jordan, also know as the First Attack on Amman or First Transjordan Attack on Amman took place between 21 March and 2 April 1918 during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign of the World War I.  The Jordan Valley had been occupied by British Egyptian Expeditionary Force since February 1918. The goal of the attack was to cross the Jordan and occupy Amman.

Second Battle of the Jordan, also known as the Second Transjordan attack on Shunet Nimrin and Es Salt or the Second Action of Es Salt took place between 30 April and 4 May 1918. It was a second attempt to cross the Jordan and occypy Amman after the first failed attempt.

You can fly this campaign as:

British Fighter Pilot:
-   Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5
-   Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5A

British Bomber Pilot:
-   Airco DH.9

British Recon Pilot:
-   Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8

British Scout Pilot:
-   Nieuport 23
-   Nieuport 17

Australian Pilot:
-   Bristol F.2B

German Fighter Pilot:
-   Albatros D.III
-   Halberstadt D.II

German Bonber Pilot:
-   AEG G.IV

German Recon Pilot:
-   Albatros C.X
-   Rumpler C.IV

German Scout Pilot:
-   Pfalz E3
-   Pfalz E1

Note: In this connnection "scout" means single-seat recon planes. In Palestine front both sides had  old fighter planes that were withdrawn from fighter duties as newer fighters arrived, but were still used by recon squadrons.

Note 2: Entente aircraft and squadrons are quite historical. But IRL Germans used Rumpler C.II's (replaced by Rumpler C.IV's) and Albatros C.II's (replaced by Albatros C.X).  German bombing duties were IRL carried out by Rumplers and AEG C.IV's. However, after testing I decided to add AEG G.IV's for the job as AEG C.IV's  and Rumplers are useless for bombing as AI cannot get enough altitude when heavily loaded. Halberstadt D.II's in Palestine actually were not German but   Ottoman fighters. Airfield names may not be correct. 

For campaign to work as planned, please select corresponding aircraft and squadron (1st squadron on the list should use 1st aircraft on the list, 2nd squadron on the list should use 2nd aircraft on the list, and so on)


Requirements:

B.A.T. v4.2.2
DCG 3.50 beta  (https://forum.jg1.org/forum/68-dcg-announcements/)

Installation:

Decompress the Jordan.rar into your DCG home directory.
Make a backup of the DGEN directory in you IL-2 game directory 
Copy Dgen & Paintschemes folders from your Jordan folder and paste them in your IL-2 game directory. Overwrite if prompted.
Start DCG, select Optional Third Party Data Folder.
Navigate to the Jordan folder and select allcampaigns.dcg
Select "Replace Career Generator (DGen)" in the DCG main screen.
Select Off Line Career (Full Auto-Generation Mode) in the DCG main screen.
Launch Il-2 DOF module and select one of the above-mentioned careers.


Recommended DCG Settings:

Air Starts: On
Delayed Start Times: On
Historical Production Dates: Off

Note:

There is an error that sometimes happens if BAT has too many skin folders for DCG to handle. DCG has a weird way of regocnizing aircraft by its skin folder and it was created a long time ago when number of aircraft was significantly smaller than today. The error should have been corrected, but it still pops up every once in the while preventing the campaign from launching.

However, there is a walkaround. Go to PaintSchemes and rename Skins folder (eg. Skins_Backup. Then  copy the Skins folder fro this package to the PaintSchemes. Later on if you need skin folder for another aircraft you can copy it from Skins_Backup to Skins, or if you install another DCG campaign you can install the skins from the campaign.

Credits and thanks:

SAS team for BAT

Stiv_069 thank you for excellent skins. My apologies for not mentioning you in the credits and thanks.

Unfortunately I have no clue who made most skins I have. I can't even recall where I downloaded them, although most of them are from B.A.T Skin collection: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,53403.0.html

It's not scary. I abandoned the game a long time ago. It's good that someone is using my work. I drew a lot on World War 1.

Это не страшно. Я давно забросил игру. Хорошо, что кто-то пользуется моей работой. Я много рисовал о Первой мировой войне.

Let's switch back to English so that other people can understand, too.

I can't reproduce the error. Do other DCG campaigns work?
