Called Bushpigs, it's available here -

http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=1053

Here's the skinny..........

You & Randy were received somewhat as heroes upon your return to Townsville. Less than a month after you resurfaced, the USN & USMC took back the island chain that had been your little slice of the war for that brief period. Intelligence provided by you, Randy, Eddie & the others on enemy strengths, positions & habits proved invaluable & saved many an
Allied life.

After countless debriefings & some well-deserved leave, you rejoined your old outfit something of a living legend. Tales of your exploits put you in good standing with Group Captain C.J. Glasscock & you received a promotion to Squadron Leader shortly after you resumed flying. Well-liked and respected, you had become the RAAF€s golden boy, far removed from the green pilot who got lost and ran out of fuel his first mission out.

Randy went a different path. News of his culinary & linguistic talents spread throughout the military and civilian community alike, and before long the RAN came sniffing around to see if the man lived up to the legend. Apparently
they were impressed by what they saw and before your leave was up, (you were hanging out together in Townsville), he was offered a commission in the Royal Australian Navy as a Lieutenant assigned to the Allied Intelligence Bureau. He was able to tell you at least that much over pots of XXXX in the Grand Hotel before he left for South East Queensland and was swallowed up by the cloak & dagger blokes. The rest of your leave passed in an alcohol-induced haze spent in the Grand Hotel. There was, after all, a war on & it was not your place to question the decision to break your team up.

After a brief return to action over the New Guinea jungle, the squadron was transferred back to Port Moresby to be rested and re-supplied. Weeks of training in low-level raids, cross-country navigation and anti-shipping
operations were followed by lectures on evasion & survival in the hostile environment that was most of New Guinea. There was talk about fitting the new Beaufighters with defensive armament for the observer position but before
this came about, a summons from Group Captain Glasscock (or "Old Brittledick" as he was called behind his back)set your future on a different track.

You were sweating dark stains all over your khakis as you entered the Group Commander€s office, and the noisy old floor fan running in the corner did little to move the syrupy air about. After getting the formalities out of
the way the GC outlined his plan for you.

Although the front line had never been clearly defined in this theatre of the war, the plan was to establish and operate a small hidden airfield from deep within enemy territory. Using local intelligence networks, this independent command would strike quickly at tactically significant targets and others of opportunity as they presented themselves.
A small strip had already been carved from the jungle using local manpower and was all but invisible from the air. It had been, and would continue to be, supplied by airdrops, transport flights and by small river vessels. Accordingly these re-supply operations would have to be kept as small as possible so as to not draw enemy attention to this base.

As this field would be operating with a minimal crew and little support from the outside, the base would be indefensible should the Japanese ever discover it. Your experience & expertise, at not only surviving but actually operating successfully right under the enemy€s nose, made you the perfect man to head up this operation.

In trying to balance effective operations against the supply issue as well as the need to keep the jungle strip hidden from the enemy, it was decided that you would lead a force of just 4 Beaufighters, consisting of the flight you presently commanded. You would have minimal support crews for each one, and a small contingent of ground staff including a medical officer and an adjutant. The man responsible for setting up the strip and running the native
intelligence network in the area would meet you upon your arrival.

As Old Brittledick played to your ego, you found yourself nodding in agreement, even as the first doubts gnawed
their way into your guts.............

From the comments made on these boards in the past concerning Castaways and his other campaigns, I guarantee this one will be great fun and adventure as you follow the storyline mission for mission. If you have never seen fun mixed in with challenging, play this campaign. Just wait til you see his handy work cutting out an airfield from deep jungle. Talking about immersion. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks for your hard work on this one Dub!

Great campaign Dub.

Tested the first 7 missions and I think it tops Castaways.

Challenging, fun, different. Great all round.

Oh, and trying to land at a small strip dug out of the forest at the base of the hills...only the truly insane or genius would model that.

Knowing Dub, I'm thinking option 1

As one of the intrepid beta testers, I can tell you that this is a fine piece of work, since I consider Castaways to be the best cmpn Ive ever played in any sim. This thing is great, but if you want quickie arcade misns, go fly an MS sim like cfs3.

This tells a story like a good Clancy novel. The briefs and background novelization are a great inovation, the most original thing in this sim since Bird Brain's Cactus Dairy which read like, well, a dairy.

And you CAN dogfight Oscars with a Beau, ya just gotta be kinda careful doing it and know when to run away. If they ever get the AI back to working properly again, this will be even better, but Dub gets around most such problems with some more of his sneaky Aussie style.....um, surprises. this is a blast, and Im a cmpn puritan....it has to be pretty convincing for me to even mention it, much less fly it all. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Now go enlist in the RAAF, since they have better beer than we Yanks do, and alot more than the Brits do. (The Canucs don't drink anything; they just say "eh?" alot and hide imigrants like Dubbo). http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

So go fly for those guys who live upside down on this planet. Who knows, they may even show you photos they took on some of those beaches of theirs.

And when you get to the last 4 misns, make sure you have time to fly them all on the same night, as you won't be able to stop till it ends. I was up till nearly 0400 flying all four of them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Anyhoot, you guys should take advantage of the practice "land your fast beau on a skinny short runway without busting your a s s" misn. You WILL need some landing and take-off practice on short fields.....surrounded by trees with hills on the ends. Most of my plane losses were to landing and take off accidents-I could handle most of the JAAF, but those trees and Mt Everest hills.

Look what Oz has inflicted on us poor Canadians:

- Olivia Newton John
- Jacko
- Fosters (lousy beer)
- Men at Work
- Crocodile Dundee

And now Dubbo? Countries have gone to war for less.

Although I have to say that Dubbo is making up for his country's poor manners by building these excellent campaigns.

Honoured to be a beta tester for Bushpigs. Think it tops Castaways. And yea, plenty of landing practice needed. If you can land on this runway, you can land anywhere.

I'm putting this abit above castaways...just because of beaufighters, beaufighters and more beaufighters.

Dubbo has offered these tips to increase the immersion factor:

- don't bathe for a month
- sit at your computer with a fire going and portable heaters blasting to simulate jungle heat
- place poisonous snakes in your lap and wrap them around your stick
- put weevels and bugs in your food while eating.

Of course for Dubbo, this is all just like normal living back in Oz...

Made it half way through mission 6.

I followed my wingman to take out the bridge west of the jungle strip (home base). He was pretty speedy and got 2kms ahead of me by target time. I was right on top of the bridge (200 ft maybe?) and my player became instant "pink mist".

I dunno what hit me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

This campaign presents a challenge I've never tried before. Using no map icons or minimap path, makes me jot down a note or two just so I can make it to the target area and back.

I'm thinking of printing out the map at work. If I laminated it, I could use a dry-erase marker to note my flight path.

All those trees and rivers kinda look the same don't they? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Great work Dubbo, but to be honest it's mighty humbling. For some reason I can't get past the first mission in Castaways. With no map, no fuel, crappy visability, I think I have flown that thing ten times and never yet made the strip <ggg.> Do you have any hints for a part time flyer/full time father like myself? All the best, LongHorn

-HH-Dubbo
08-27-2006, 04:15 PM
10 times. Gees sorry mate. I didn't intend it to be that frustrating. Mind you if you can't find it, that's no reflection on pilot skills.

You are on course for the base when the mission starts. (Heading 085) And you have enough altitude to get there but you only get one chance to line up and set her down. (Runway 050.)

If worse comes to worst, use your map. After this mission, the ever-handy Randy makes you maps so you can use them during missions.

Enforcer572005
08-27-2006, 10:16 PM
Screenshots you say? Well, ok. if you insist. I had alot more of these, but for some reason, I loose about half that I make. Something to do with the fact that they constantly change number as you make new ones. There were alot of anti shipping and ground attack shots i made, but they all just disapeared .

anyway, this is where you started from in Castaways, where you waged a 5 man, 2 plane war behind the lines on a forgotten destroyed allied base, using your beau and a resurected F4F that never made it to WAke Island apparently. You and your observer Randy (who now is doing spook stuff supporting your new subterfuge misn) kicked some serious A. Now you gotta a second shot at em, in a four plane war with alot more guys in a miserable jungle.

(previously) Here's a shot of you flying with the AAF A-20 pilot in the cobble wildcat you guys found in Castaways.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/Beuandf4fenroutetoijnbase.jpg

Now fast forward a few months after your return to allied lines.This takes up well along in the Bushpigs cmpn, flying from that @%$#@%%$% snake ridden, miserable toilet of an airbase youve operated from for weeks. The sons of the orient have gotten somewhat concerned about all the carnage some mysterious Beaufighters are reaking along thier supply collums and shipping. Wrecking that "secret" seaplane base was enough to get them snooping. A Dinah and its escorting Oscars show up at dusk one day, prompting you and one of your handful of crews to make a frantic intercept. The concentrated firepower of four 20mm let you make a long range kill on the fast snooper.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/dinahgoingdn.jpg

Now the escorts rip into you guys, and the fight is on. You get one at long range seconds after the Dinah falls, but his two pals are like angry hornets in the failing light, among some pretty tall mountains. your mount was never intended for close in dogfighting like this, but you've no choice. You stress your bird to the design limits and beyond....
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/oscarbeaucantletemseethebase.jpg

About all you can do here is head for the base, despite the likelyhood the Oscar will see it-you know that few of them have radios, and it's unlikely the Dinah got off a message. There are alot of Brens and Vickers set up there, as well as some captured Japanese AA guns. You just hope the field doesnt stand out enough to be spotted.
(This camo scheme isnt included in the cmpn-i just liked it. the cmpn used stock skins mostly).
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/lowoverthebase.jpg

It works! The AA crews put a wall of lead into the air, and the surprised JAAF pilot flies right into it. You hope his crashing plane didnt injure anyone.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/AAkillsoscar.jpg

Early the next morning though, it's obvious that somebody with a radio did get through. A full squadron of escorted Vals shows up making a low altitude bomb run on the base. The early warning observer system your friend Randy set up gives you and your four Beaus barely enough time to get in the air, and you wade into them.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/anothervalkill.jpg

You kill four of the Vals yourself, while two of your guys stay on the Oscars. Your observer still keeps your six guarded. these things burn like.....well, gasoline.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/burningvalkill.jpg

You get down to your four .303 mgs, and are about to finish the last one-the leader. He wont cooperate and takes skilled evasive action, though it appears you've killed the gunner. Just as you are about to finish him, your guns go dry. One lucky one gets away.

08-27-2006, 10:51 PM
The next couple of days are a dawn to dusk struggle to get the base evaced before the Imperial army gets there. Of course, there is sporadic air opposition. Here your wingy takes out an Oscar on a dawn raid against approaching collums.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/blownapartoscar.jpg

Your guys fly desperate strikes against strong enemy formations approaching along the river bank that runs past the base. You do alot of this kind of misn in the cmpn, but you better practice your low flying....at lawn mower hieght.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/shootingupconvoyllow.jpg

Enemy fighters may show up, and the best defence has been to outrun them, but you cant run anymore, you just have to get into a knife fight that you win-quickly. Gunnery is the most important skill, along with landing, and Japanes planes just cant take much of the Beau's firpower.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/explodingoscar.jpg

But more dangerous than the AA or the fighters, that stinking runway is as bad as Brittany Spears' taste in men, and your shot up plane sometimes just won't get stopped in time. Were too fast! Hit the BRAKES!!
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/endoftheline.jpg

Well, it's better to be on your back than spread among the trees. The poor Vickers gunner hauled A. Who can blame him? The locals that helped build this place (and defend it) can't believe anyone is nuts enough to fly outta here.....but they understand that you ARE Aussies after all. They've had to fly in replacement planes before; they'll just have to burn this one along with everything else.
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b63/Enforcer572005/MGgunnerhauledA.jpg

You EVENTUALLY will get SOME help, but not that much, though it does come along in the nick of time. Just when you think all is calm, All blazes breaks out. So watch your backs, and practice your landing skills. I had to land most of the time from the south, which entailed dropping over a tall mtn to make it in. So go ahead and fly Bushpigs. You can always go back and get Castaways afterwards. Believe me, you will want to. But this is sorta like Star Wars; you can fly it as a prequell after you fly this one. I normally like historical based projects, but this is a blast, and is very realistic. Reads like a Barrett Tillman or tom Clancy novel. Just great. Now fly it-there will be a quiz next week, and those who fail must go on a date with Rosey Odennell. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Thanks, Dubbo.

Sorry about no updates. I spent the last two weeks screwin' around with BOB:WOVII and stopped halfway through Bushpigs. I finally put in two more missions with Bushpigs last night.

I like it for sure. My rig is slow though and landing is tough because my frame rate drops to the ol' slide show when I get near the strip. I have to slow down the game to half-speed otherwise I can't successfully navigate that skinny strip.

That's my limitation though, not the campaign's.

My latest mission was seeking out the two "patrol" boats shadowing the undercover fishin' boat. Those patrol boats have some serious firepower and all I did was piss 'em off. Luckily as I RTB'd I saw that little spec in the sky that turned out to be an enemy transport. I overtook it and shot it down even though my gunsight was knocked out by the patrol boats. Gotta love no rear gunners! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Dubbo, I finally knocked out the rest of the missions today amongst the football games playin' on TV.

Dude, I just couldn't catch that Ki-61 recce plane. By the time I cleared the "taxiway" to the runway, it was too late for me. I thought he was headed out at 270 so I went that way for 15 minutes at top speed and low altitude. I turned back heading to the area north of home base to see if he went that way. Nothing. So after 40 minutes I landed after giving up.

I guess it didn't matter anyway, the jig was up with the incoming forces. I blasted the cr@p out of them over and over. The Beau is a great ground pounder.

The homecoming flight was cool, too. Right when I'm about to take the Beau from altitude, somebody called out fighters. Nice.

I like the clip at the end. What the Hmmmmm? I have no idea. Overall I got 6 enemy AC, all with hit and run attacks. Thank god the Beau can outrun a Ki-43. You made me mess my pants when I saw the Ki-84.

Like I mentioned, ground pounding is the Beau's strong suit and I got 81 targets. Tanks. Cars. Ships. AAA. Sweet.

It took about halfway through the campaign to realize how much effort you put into the story, Dubbo. Really impressive. I was getting into it by the end, then it was over.

Good campaign. Worth every minute. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

And Jude, I hope you enjoy. I really liked Legion Kondor BTW - that was some top shelf work. Any info on the new one?

Hi Dubbo,
Just a couple of missions in - I have just landed at the main strip and caught up with Randy - and it is good again. The work on the base looks really cool, a kind of fantasy island effect I think and it also has that atmosphere that the base on Castaway Island had. I was quite surprised partway along the flight there, too. Bit of the fog of war at work.
Thanks for the comments about Kondor Legion. I liked playying it myself, especially the later missions. The BOB follow up is kind of "delayed" at the moment. I should finish it off but have lost some of the initial enthusiasm it must be said.Started working on a purely fictional one the other day though and have been getting to grips with flying bombs, gliders and all the tricks the FMB contains.
ANyway, after a long day of work I really enjoyed coming back and playing the first two missions (except the parts where I kept clipping my wings on trucks. I enjoyed those parts considerably less).
Cheers!

Although I do like "Corinthian" leather, I have been known to take part in conversations like

Me to wife, pointing through the windshield - "Look honey"
Wife - "What? What am I looking at?"
Me - "The plane. The plane"

Don't let him kid you folks. I've heard that conversation. It really goes like this:

Me to wife, pointing through the windshield - "Look honey"
Wife - "What? What am I looking at?"
Me - "De plane boss, de plane!"
Wife (smiling at him with that 'tolerant' look- "Yes Tattoo, now go get the red carpet so we can welcome our guests."

Really, it makes me feel so welcome. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
