Yekaterina Budanova; missions and AARs

Recommended Posts

Got really inspired by Lupson's mission builder combined with the campaign to create a set of AARs around Yekaterina Budanova, the female ace.

 

Am now creating a mission set out of these missions which I'll put up for download soon I hope.

 

In the meantime, here are the AARs... an amazing woman!

Looking forward to this.

 

Your AAR's are really great reads too! That is some awesome immersion.

 

Keep up the great work, Heinkill!

I really think the devs should put in content like this in their game updates (with your permission, of course, Heinkill).

 

It would be a very few extra mb's going out to everybody, but would definitely help the sim feel "filled out" and a complete package.

Excellent work as always, Heinkill! I enjoy your AARs, they're quite immersive!

This is a great idea!

Thanks, if anyone can point me at a tutorial which specifically covers how to make briefings in the mission builder, I'd be grateful. Can't seem to find one covering that particular topic.

 

I can easily add simple text briefings, but of course it would be much better if it was also possible to include images at least.

I have not tried it yet, but the text can be html formatted.

Isn't it possible to embed local pictures in that kind of text?

There a issue with images - I test this dozen of times until discover.  :(

 

You only will see if "HUD" are on - and I hate HUD, icons, Tekchat, messages pop-up on screen...  :angry:

 

I think for what you want a .BIK video will work better.

Ok, noted, but probably more work than It is worth...

If you want to try, write the briefing (Word document) and send me, I see what I can do.

PS, got the following email today from Prof Reina Pennington, author of the book 'Women Wings and War' (and a former airforce officer herself). Great info here on Soviet women aces. The site is a WIP but particularly interesting to me was the account of Lilya Litviak/Katja Budanova's faithful mechanic Inna Pasportnikova, who accompanied them on all their postings, until their deaths.

Dear Fred,

I just launched the web site: http://lilylitviak.org. If you have a chance, take a look. It's very much a work in progress, so suggestions are appreciated. You'll find some info on Pasportnikova that you'll like. I haven't done a lot with Budanova yet.

Be sure to check out the page on the new book "Defending the Motherland." I believe that will have a lot of new information.


best wishes,

rjp
