View Full Version : modifying dgen campaigns?

I read somewhere on these forums that it was possible to modify what plane selections you have for campaigns, and someone planning on adding a birdcage corsair for the US campaigns.

How exactly can you do this?

I'd very much like to do this, and add several more choices for the USAAF and other air forces.

*just incase any devs or someone at ubisoft gets mad at me: I want to do this for personal offline campaigns, just state that you don't want this done if there is some sort of problem with the legality of it.

Its fairly easy, you just look around in the dgen map and open all the files that sound like they have a role. You can change opposition a/c, their standard skins, your own a/c and the flyables.

All plain text.

open DGen folder, and for example, if you want to change the plane selection for USAAF campaign, open file called "planesUSP".
It sould look like this.
-------------------
[Hawaii]
P_40SUKAISVOLOCHB
[NewGuinea]
P_40E
P_39D1
[Japan1]
P_51D20NA
P_38L
P_47D27
-------------------
Just simply add the aircraft you want to, and now you can select that aircraft for the campaign.

Note that you have to use the aircraft designators as used in the game, i.e. "P_40E", (without the quotes.) "P-40E" "p-40e" etc. won't work.

In a related note, does anyone have the list of in-game aircraft designators for PF? The list for FB/AEP (plus the P-39D I just copped from sapre's post) is:

Thanks. Also, would there be any way to add operations to a nationality?

And it was for AEP. A little out of date now as it doens't include the new planes and the KI-84s are of course now supported by Dgen. I'll make a newer list and post it sometime tonight after I go to the polls and vote for 'you know who'.

Here is my new DGEN names list for IL2/FB/AEP+PF. I detail which planes are flyable, which ones are not flyable, which are new in PF and which can be hacked/edited into DGEN campaigns and which ones can't ( to the best of my knowledge so far ). Also categorised as to whether they are Axis/Allied ( Red/Blue ). These are also the proper codes names which must be used with FB/AEP+PF files in the DGEN folder, if you edit anything, in order to get it to work correctly.

Please note that I'm only considering dynamic DGEN campaigns, not DCG or static campaigns that someone could build with FMB mission builder. Also please note that I have not tried to insert/hack/edit all the new planes into DGEN planes###.dat files yet. But I do know for certain which of the Zero fighters will not work yet. Starshoy may release some of these planes later so we can hack them into DGEN campaigns. So none of this is by any means final, only as things stand as of this date. There will be additions and changes made in the future, be sure.

Here is the full and complete listing, I will continue to double check it's accuracy, but it should be good right now.
