Ground kills are awarded automatically.

Is there a way to use the new Velikiye Luki map on PWCG?

To me its the most beautiful map on the IL2 series.

Hey everyone, i know it is possible to make female pilots on the soviet side, but is it possible to make one for the allies or even germans? If not within the program maybe by modifying some files?

Are you asking about in PWGC?  If you are, you can choose whatever name you want for your pilot but Pat doesn't make any changes to the game files.  If you want to mod the game files then you might have better luck asking in the Mods fourm, since this one is just for Pat Wilson's Campaign Generator (PWGC) which is here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/forum/114-mods/

 

The players who make mods for the game files might see your request there or it might have already been asked and available.   Good luck and welcome to the PWCG forum!

Out of the box, PWCG does not support female combat pilots for anybody except the VVS.  Still, it would not be hard to do.  As pointed out, you can name your pilot whatever you want.  As for the picture, you can add or change one of the pilot pictures to be a female picture.

I have not incorporated the Velikiye Luki or Prokharova maps yet.  There is no realistic way to use them without a fair amount of work, including squadrons, front lines, etc.

Pat, is it possible to add this note to squadron log in future?

I can make notes in Narrative on the first page of the journal as I do it usually but its not much comfortable. Sometimes I forgot make my notes then I have to calculate it from the start.

Hi Pat, yesterday I ran a campaign mission to Stalingrad with an escort of two F4 Jg52s. During the flight I noticed that the escort above us had engaged in a duel with two other enemy fighters. However, in the mission report, despite having selected the maximum of information, I did not find the recording of this duel. Why? Thanks as usual.

They might not have shot anything down.  Damage logs are limited to damage done to the player and by the player.  Ai t AI damage is not recorded.  if you were not involved and nobody was shot down the game would not produce any logs related to the fight.

@SCG_motoadve How big is your screen? Looks like the US and VVS are getting chopped off.

Whenever i attack trucks and cars in either free hunt or as designated target on the boddenplattemap they are always stuck inside or next to a bridge. Happend atleast 20 times. All trains are at stations, often on top of each other. This only happen in the boddenplattemap, other maps it works very well.

Seen that.  All of the truck convoys are started near a bridge.  From the bridge location I back off about 200 meters and put the convoy down. If you put the units on the bridge they end up weird - in the water or stuck in the on ramp.  They are not placed on top of the bridge (they were in RoF but it changed in GB).   

 

Something that I have seen in western European maps is the bridges are a lot bigger. I don't think there is any way to determine the size of the bridge.  Anyway. that's my best guess.  Might be able to do something like back off the convoy further.

 

The trains I have no clue.  Put a train in the station.   Guess the stations are different on western maps but no idea why they should be.   I'll try to figure it out.

Hey Pat, I’ve seen a few request about co-op escort missions and wondered is there a way to simply unlock the equipment transfer page to allow other aircraft to be added to the squadron as a temporary implimentation?

 

For example, I setup a test campaign with A-20’s, but on the equipment transfer screen I could only request A-20’s. Could we modify this to pull any plane from your side?  I know it’s not the perfect solution, but I think it would be a workable band aid method 😁

Follow the pics below. Should be able to adjust PWCG screen size using controls shown on the 3rd pic to something that allows you see the whole PWCG screen. Usually the auto size option takes care of it for you but sounds like you need to switch it to manual and pick a screen size that works for you.
