Can someone point me to the malta campaign download that was in the forum a while ago? I finally upgraded to PF so I can actually play that campaign now.

It's too bad that in PF you can't do a quick mission with a carrier as the target. Wonder why it was not put in the quick mission list as a possible target. Now I have to use mission builder and change the plane type whenever I want to bomb a carrier with the diff planes included in the game. Kind of a hassle when you want a quick mission. And man as some of the other threads already mentioned the Zero...- it's underpowered, easily combustible, barely there ammo and strength. I don't know how they could have used this thing to fight.

Back on topic the link to the malta campaign download. Thanks!

That Malta campaign doesn't seem to be finished yet.

You can, it's there. Select the Coral Sea map and "Target: Airbase". As there is nothing but water on that map the airbases are actually carriers. You'll also find some carrier attack missions in my Mission Pack for PF, see my sig.

I tried what you said plumps for coral sea. I was hoping to see what the bf110 or stuka or il2 with bombs could do to a carrier but the FB plane set isn't there. Why!??!!! I thought the merged version would let me use any of the plane set available. DOUBLE DOH!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I'm going to try your missions.

As there is no regular airbase on the Coral Sea map you can only fly carrier-based aircraft on that specific map in the QMB. The FB plane set is available on all the other maps.

You'll find some ships to attack in the QMB (no carriers though) on the Pacific Islands and Crimea maps.

I am afraid Malta had to be put on a temporary hold. Extreme_One is on a secret assignment for the Ubi underworld and has been sent to a 3rd world country in search of documentation on the cockpit layout of an unnamed fighter aircraft that was recently recovered from the bottom of a lake. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

When he gets back from his journey (you will know when, because the patch will be released already) we will resume work on "Battle over Malta"

Thats a shame, I saw your post on it a few weeks ago and am dying to see how you modified the east coast of the Hawaii map in making Grand Harbour and Valletta. It's a sizable undertaking, so goodluck.
