After a few months without so much as touching this campaign I have gone back to it on the last few days. Reading people's comments in an earlier thread I started encouraged me to get on and finish it. Thanks - I hope it deserves your attention.

Here a few pics showing scenes from a couple of newer missions.

Don't know when I'll finish it but should be done in a month or so.
Cheers,

Thanks Haigotron, I'll let you know when it's done.
Anyone know who made the beautiful 109 skin in the top picture? I want to acknowledge it but there's no name. It's one in a series called BoF_standard_1a through to 5. This is BoF_standard_3.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

My, that second screen shot with the 110 shootin at the Hurri is gorgeous-went straight to my desktop.I know some of the screenshot 'purists' dont like tracer shots but that is a really lovely action shot.Thanks for all the work-its for the many guys like you the inscription on the 46 dvd is for....

Thanks for all the kind comments and helpful information, chaps. Vike, the skins do look like those made by Macwan but thanks anyway, Dark_P. The map I'm using will be the same used by Cobra in his extremely well received "Battle of Britain: Hurricane Season". To incorporate take-offs the player will have to suspend his disbelief a little but it "works" more-or-less. the map is Kuban I think though honestly I forget.
Ytareh - I like the tracers in it, too. Gives a sense of energy and dynamism to the picture. I think taking screenshots is one of my favourite parts of campaign building, actually.

Anyway, I'm sending it to the testers in the next day or two once I have rewritten some of teh briefings and ensured they are cohesive. Then it'll be a few weeks I'd imagine.

I'll post more pics shortly.
Cheers!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Thanks for the bump, MrMojok. The campaign is still being tested on and off and Blairgowrie over at the K9 squadrons has modified some to be used as co-ops. I'd like to get it released before I go away to NZ for Xmas which gives me oh, let's see, not much time! Currently I'm trying unsuccessfully to make some intro and cut scene movies for it.
Guess we'll see how it goes.
Here a few screenies in the meantime.
