Hi All,

I have a few friends that like to play PF stand alone but we don't have any missions to fly that come with the game.

We started a campaign but after 10 minutes of flying, someone said

"Hey we're gonna be flying for half an hour here, and then half an hour back - our gaming time is limited so let's play something else"

And we did lol. We are all adults, we all work and yes, our game time is limited - flying in a straight line for an hour is boring.

So - does anyone know of a place to get decent missions or coop campaigns that don't have you flying until you've grown a new beard? We're all running stand alone, and I think this could be a real problem in itself. I looked at the PF site and I see some campaigns and coop missions but most require il2fb installed as well. The only campaign we saw was for a 4-ship flight but there's anywhere up to 15 of us that have the game lol (yeah I know, that's going to be another problem as well).

Any links or other info would be most appreciated.

Thx.

Best thing to do would be to download

A) IL2 Manager and change the mission distance parameter from their nifty little options set up
B) Download the DGEN campaign generator and set you preference for mission distance

or

C) go into the config.ini file and change the mission distance settings there.

There are also otherways of doing it, just cant remember them off the top of my head.

See my sig. A single mission pack with short flight times. The missions should also work as coops if you save them to a coop folder, but the host will be bound to the "player" aircraft. Shift_E's Quick Mission Tuner (http://mysite.verizon.net/res19wz2/QMT/qmt.htm) will convert the complete QDPFSMP folder into real coops with a few clicks.

You'll find some links to more mission download sites at the bottom of that page (http://home.arcor.de/rayluck/sturmovik/missionen-en.html).

The MissionDistance setting will work only in some of the PF offline campaigns (e.g. Marianas) but the flight distance will still be 100 km instead of 300 km.

Also, if you're looking for a Dynamic Co-op campaign in the Pacific, get Lowengrin's DCG (http://www.lowengrin.com). For purely carrier to carrier combat, the 'Action Radius' setting determines the distance between the opposing carrier groups. On land, it's another story though. Oh, and don't set the action radius much lower than 50km, or the carriers will actually sink each other with torpedos and artillery.

check out this post (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=26310365&m=6401067782) for the basics of setting up DCG, and PM me or head over to the Lowengrin forums if you want a more advanced setup.
