View Full Version : Offline campaign help

I am fairly new to this sim. I have started an off line campaign as a Luftwaffe fighter that shipped with the sim ( il21946 ). I am about 14 missions into it. Do any body know how many missions there are ? It does not tell you how many missions in each campaign. Also with all of the downloadable campaigns made by followers of this sim ...should I even bother with the stock campaigns ? Are user made campaigns better ? I really like the BF-109 , that is why I choose the German Luftwaffe fighter campaign. Please shed some info.....

The number of missions varies - They're dynamic, so no two campaigns are the same (supposedly).

Usermade campaigns are all scripted, as opposed to dynamic campaigns, so it's really just what you want - A semi-random campaign or a scripted one.
If you get bored with the stock dynamic campaigns, there's EnjoyrPatch (You can find them at www.mission4today.com) (http://www.mission4today.com)) and DCG (www.lowengrin.com), which can both be used separately or together, though I haven't had any luck getting the two to work together.

Hope that helps a bit, and welcome to the world of IL2!

For me, and believe me when I say that I've played offline campaigns a lot, DCG is the way to go.
You can randomize (almost) everything and it isn't that hard to use in spite of the initial look.
Just stick with it and post anything that you see as a problem here and I have no doubt that's gonna be resolved.

About your current (DGen) dynamic campaign, say which one is it? Is it German Fighter South? German Fighter Center....?

German Fighter South has by far the most missions about ~350 in total if you don't get wounded (that way you can significantly shorten your campaign mission number).
