Do the dynamic campaign lengths vary? I am yet to complete one, but have several going. My highest is around 32 missions completed in a BF109. Will there be an "end", or will it continue indefinately? Some other campaigns I have going are IL-2, Yak, and the Brewster.

According to the config options IL-2 Stab allows me, yes, campaigns can vary in length, however they default to very long. The other options are long, medium, short, and very short. I imagine then that they cannot last forever, but I could be wrong.

Campaigns on very long last a good while. About 400 missions +. They do all come to an end.

Can't recall the exact number but it is described in the manual. I think 400 missions is a number referred to for a pilot's career (i.e., 8 or so campaigns).

Edit your config.ini file with a new [DGen] entry (if not already there) and set CampaignLength=VeryShort or whatever you like (variables already mentioned in another post).

I've heard that on average campaigns last between 250 - 300 missions, it all depends on which one you fly and how early you start.

Wow, I would have never guessed that long. I was thinking along the 25-50 mission range as it was in RL. Thanks for the info.

Max limit is 500 missions. I know this because DCG has an option which reflects how many mission you want to fly in a campaign using DCG in single player career in FB.

Actually, Lowengrin could bump this to 1000 if he wanted. He just felt that noone was so sad as to want to fly that many missions in a single Campaign!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif At least that what I read on the forum once....

Quote from manual..."A typical campaign consits of apporximately 30 missions and a career includes 4-8 campaigns, or 100-250 missions.

The edits to the config file to adjust campaign length are listed in the read me file V1.1b in the IL2 main directory

Quote: CampaignLength=VeryLong (Long,Medium,Short,VeryShort), default is VeryLong. Sets number of missions in campaign. Long is about 2 times shorter than VeryLong. VeryShort is about 10 times shorter.

Somewhat vague, but I think you get the idea. You can cut & paste the config.ini mod from the read me file.

It depends on the country. I don't have exact figures, but the RL Luftwaffe aces' careers regularly reach the hundreds, and sometimes thousands of sorties. The USAAF might have required less missions in a career.

I just finish '41 with hurri (FINNISH campaign) it takes 50 missions exactly through year '41. Now I got Brewster ('42) which seems to be better A/C for several reasons http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

I finished russian Stalingrad fighter career, and flew 175 sorties ('cause i've been wounded for 2 years) and this number would be much higher.

Think that average career last about 250&gt; missions.

Ah, ok. So it sounds like a career is in the 200 mission range, made up of several campaigns. That seems to make sense. Either way, thanks for config file hints, I will try them out.

Just to update: The BF109 1st campaign ended at exactly 35 missions.

Is the conf.ini file titled "configuration settings?" Is it a notepad file?

Thanks, Huggy

Eric Hartmann scored his 352 victory on his 1405th sorty, he entered combat in 825 of those 1400 odd sorties. Thats... prolific.

I agree that 'campaigns' (such as Kursk, or Stalingrad) last 50 missions on the 'VeryLong' setting, that would be a career of 300-400 missions, as stated above.
