Default F18 Hornet Campaign, Persian Gulf

Good Evening,

I have just finished the 1989 campaign with the Hornet and I was wondering if there’s any supercarrier campaigns set in the Persian Gulf with the F18? I had a look on the campaigns menu on the DCS website and I couldn’t see any. Most of the campaigns are for Nevada. Thank you

Yes. You can find free ones in the user download section.

Are they easy to download and install from user files. I only have a basic knowledge when it comes to computers? Is there any tutorials or step by step guides ? Thanks

Check out this thread: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=281351

Also you're in the right place on this sub-forum. Several very good dynamic missions on this sub-forum. To name two that include the SC:
  1. Liberation Campaign (make sure to check out this one!) (step by step installation video)
  2. Any of the "Through the inferno" missions (this one in Persian Gulf)

As long as you can read the few instructions they do have, installation really ain't complicated at all and no knowledge of computers is needed

Yup! totally agree with sirrah! Liberation is absolutely worth looking at. Make sure you read the docs as well, since this one works/behaves a little different from others.

But if you want a plain scripted one, like the ones you buy/included in the modules, then this one includes the SC in the Persian Gulf.

Since you claim you're computer illiterate. I'll explain how to install it, to get you going. Most other campaigns works the same way, except for the dynamic DCE campaigns, they are also nice!

From link above. Download the file, OER_pt1-v2.0_SC.zip. It will probably open in Windows Explorer, and inside is another folder "OER_pt1-v2.0_SC". All you have to do is copy that folder.

If you want it to appear under the F/A-18C when you click Campaigns like this:

Copy to:

Drive:\path\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Mods\aircraft\FA-18C\Missions\Campaigns\

Where drive and path might be C:\Program Files\ if you just installed DCS with default settings. You might even have Steam version. Change accordingly!
BEWARE!!! If you update DCS, you might need to copy it back in. Not always!

If you want it to appear under the "My Campaigns" when you click Campaigns like this:

Copy to drive:\Users"your user"\Saved Games\DCS\Missions\Campaigns\EN

And/Or

Copy to drive:\Users"your user"\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Missions\Campaigns\EN

Make folders if any are missing. Items in the "Saved Games" folders are not affected by updates and cleanups. But I would recommend to get one of the mod managers. I have startet to use the new one Open Mod Manager.

Hope this is constructive and helpful!
Cheers!

Yeah, do that! Those scripted story driven campaigns can be a lot of fun and a different experience as well.
I don't know your mileage on DCS, but if/when you're going to add mods, make sure to check out that mods manager, or the old OvGME. OvGME is simpler, but abandoned with no more development, so I would just head directly to the new one if I were you.
Cheers!

Thank you. What Mod Manager would you recommend I use? I had a quick look on user files and I can see mod manager ModManFX 64 Bits 1.0.1.2 - Mod Manager. But having a quick look at the installation process and it looks really confusing.

You mean whether 32 or 64 bit? Always go for 64bit when available.
The installation is pretty straight forward, but if you mean the setup process, yes, that one is somewhat intimidating, and lack of documentation.
But install it, and make a post in the thread, and I'll help you!
