Oookay, just spent the better part of my life building what was to become a simple mission off an idea I got out of a book.
Phase 1 Planing.
I knew I wanted to go blow up some barges on the rivers inside Normandy. Sounds simple enough right?
Problem 1. Barges are A. immobile objects and B. Not country specific, That is once you place one, as far as your flights concerned it might as well be a rock on the ground! No matter what orders I call out they wont attack because they cant see it as the enemy!
A. has no solution but I solved B.
Place German fuel trucks on the barges. they cant be seen cause they are under the barge and when attacked they go boom! The flight thinks its attacking the truck since the barge is invisable to them! So just some fine tuning me thinks and ill be able to post this in a few days. Now should I use Spits or tempests?! Both did their fair share of barge busting. Tooo bad no typhoon http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

So ill let you all decide Spits or Tempests?

I say go with the tempest. Now where is my prize!?!?!

Seriously though, nice work around on the barges.

Yep, fuel trucks are useful little buggers. I put them (or other vehicles) inside of buildings, and if you stick some of the crate objects inside as well, you get a pretty neat looking object in lieu of the bland, empty destroyed object.

Also, TEMPESTS!!!!

re: Spits/Tempests - never ask an either or question around here, cause some smart @ss will come along and say both. Which is what I would want.

The Spits made movies, the Tempests made history. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Okay so the Typhoon it is! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Joke

And your prize is that after a million hours of work this mission, my baby will be all yours!

Real men strafe using Blenheims, nothing like a stream of molten lead spewing forth from 1 .303 in port wing.

But, if you use the mods you can get mk5 and mk8 spitfires as fighter bombers, just no rockets. if you substitute seafires for spitfires you get rockets or bombs.

Very effective against infantry! Gasoline also.

There is a Typhoon available....but you'll have to venture over to "the other place" to download it and install it for the game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
