Hey IronMike,

 

I finished the campaign in one day. Fantastic, great job! I really enjoyed flying an F-14 campaign where I didn't know what would happen - after almost a year of working on mines, haha.

 

Clearly a lot of creativity was put into this one, the missions were very well put together. Super clear what the player needs to do, exciting turns of events and suprises.

 

I'm not going to give you guy any spoilers, see for yourselves 🙂

Only minor complaint is that it appears the MODEX's are all the same for the F-14 (101) and the F/A-18s seem only have "random" MODEX's not consistent with a CAW. I know it is nit picky and doesn't effect gameplay but other Freeware and Paid campaign's do better skin/MODEX assignments.

Thanks. We might add a 102 livery for the campaign, we just have to be mindful of size, the Tomcat is already at 12GB. Until we find a solution for the Tomcat modexes, the rest will stay as are though unfortunately. I can look into the MODEX's for the hornets, I am not a big stickler for these kind of things myself, so I didnt think much about it tbh. But if you guys want that, that's not a problem.

Maybe not 102, but a later modex in the series to at least give the appearance of randomness. To be honest, though, it can probably wait until the dynamic modex issue is solved or abandoned.

Yeah, I'll be that guy, too:

SPOILERS FOR MISSION 5

Boy, this is a big step up in difficulty. Those MiGs taking off from Guadata are giving me quite a bit of trouble. It is a bit irritating that they only seem to spawn in as they are taking off (unless I am missing something), would be nice to snipe them while taxiing. The R-73s are nasty up close.

What does the trick here for me, is to react quick. I usually get both while they still fly out. But then again, I am very primed for the event to happen, so it doesnt really count I guess would be fair to say. The problem with taxi is, that it takes too long. Almost 3 minutes or so. I might see if I can change that order up a bit, so you get noted while they are almost done with taxiing. Thank you for the feedback. Also, please note that I hotfixed mission 5, you will need it to progress. My apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll make sure to download it. I've also been experiencing the same Sparrow issues that are being posted about in other threads, but I don't think I have anything to say about it that hasn't already been raised. Otherwise, it's a fun campaign! The best touch so far is when the soundtrack faded in at the end of mission 4, that genuinely surprised me.

Got a question. I got no marshal info nor carrier com whatsoever for mission 3 and 4,which should be case 3 if I'm not mistaken. Do I do something wrong or would that be normal. Comms worked fine for mission 1 and 2.

 

Anyhow, had a lot of fun until now thank you for the Campaign.

I noticed in Mission 3 the brief has the Stennis Freq as 225 but its actually set to 127.5. Probably the same for Mission 4.

SPOILER MISSION 5

 

 

Damn, that silence after the announcement of "no chutes" is deafening.

 

I must admit, that gave me the shivers, even so, it is just a game, in this case it simulates the "real world" for me very well.  The return to the ship was in dead silence.

 

Being 30+ years in service I know that "playing war" might be fun, the real thing isn't. 

 

Thank you for bringing this part also into the great campaign.

 

 

 

 

On a side note:  There were some Hornets on one of the assault ships...are they supposed to be there ?

Oh oops, a landing waypoint likely snapped to the tarawa. Kinda funny that they really follow through with it. I will fix that for the module integration/ release, so we dont have too many hotfixes going on.

Glad you liked the moment, btw. Ofc a lot of stuff in the campaign is semi-realistic, but it was still important to me to try and show also some more sincere moments. Happy that you enjoy it. It's ofc also a hommage to all the fine servicemen lost in history, who gave their lives to protect us and our freedom. May they rest in peace.

I played first 2 missions. Enjoyed so far. But understanding the mission is not easy. Some pictorial briefings with flight plans and diagrams would be great.

In the second mission, i went to the refueling but my wingman didin't refuel btw

Thank you. There is mission briefing images with the flight plan included. You need to click on the arrows below the title image, to scroll through them. Your wingman will only refuel if you order him to. Select in your comms: flight, go to, and tanker. 🙂

tanks for the reply

but, for first 2 missions there are only 2 pages and they weren't so detailed compare to other campaigns. Do i miss something here?

and i gave go to tanker command twice to my wingman, he replied "roger" then immediately "rejoined formation" so he didin't get any fuel. but at the end our fuel was more than enough to execute the mission, so i didin't suffer lack of refueling.

Yes, it is only those 2 pages. You can click and scroll in, it gives you distance marks and everything, they are created with combat flite. Most of the action is unfolded through orders from Darkstar, that can't be in the briefing images, for obvious reasons. As for the AI, it behaves strange around the tanker. If he rejoins, and you have enough fuel, he might have for some reason been full, no idea tbh. We don't manage the AI.

I was looking forward for your campaign. however after the first 5th mission, sorry to say i wasn't really to pleased with it

 

the first 4th mission are basically doing nothing so that's 50% of the whole campaign doing nothing. its not really something that you wanna do after a long day at work. currently i'm stuck on mission 5. i've destroyed every enemy and told they me to return to cap position. i've waited minutes on station until i got bored and quit. but after reading his thread i think it's bugged.

 

but again, i download this campaign using the link you share meaning, if i want to play the campaign again with the fixes i have to use the official one from the game and start all over again. i just don't want to go through the whole first 4 mission again.

 

i was expecting the whole campaign to be something like watching over devildog mission. 

 

in other word i really like the jester own dialog its really cool.

 

i know this wont be your last campaign you make, so i'm really looking forward for the next one

 

Regards
