If every aircraft in the sim is considered and you have the time/desire to learn them all, or at least every aircraft featured in a campaign.

 

My concern is the content available to justify the purchase of any given module.

WWII is a good example, as is the MiG 15.

F14 will likely be another. A smart developer would have several campaigns in the works for that aircraft. Release a new Top Gun campaign yearly, etc.

 

That said 3 short pages/28 campaigns is not impressive considering the number of aircraft they’re divided between, how easy the editor is - not to mention the time span we’re talking about at this juncture.

 

Hopefully more people will step up to fill in the gaps like Leon is doing sine apparently  ED isn’t that concerned. 

 

Others who are learning the editor like Wolf - good job. Maybe you’ll end up creating a campaign as well. I encourage you to give it a go.

 

Now as someone already indicated I’m repeating myself so I’ll give it a rest.

 

 

 

 

 

Yeah I made a pretty good mission with it recently by my own standards anyway. Definitely enjoying it. It’s got everything a mission usually has, and as I learned randomization it keeps things interesting.

 

But I need to learn a few more things now to take it to the next step. I want to have real radio messages for example, and also need to work on the victory conditions. Do you have any advice on how to make missions more interesting or exciting? 

 

Sometimes I find the best missions are those I would least expect. There’s no action, even but it’s just pure atmosphere!

If you guys are interested in a new campaign for the F-5E, I present to you the demo for Blazing Tiger!

Fly in the Caucasus in a fictional Proxy war 70s setting. The demo contains 3 missions, CAS, SAR and a Fighter Sweep.

Good to know about the additional user made content - it appeared to me last time I looked that it was all on those 3 pages.

 

Thanks for the clarification.

"Although we released a greatly improved and free Nimitz-class aircraft carrier at the time of the Hornet release, we are also working on a separate Nimitz-class aircraft carrier module. This product will have an incredible level of detail and include such features as a detailed and operable LSO and Air Boss stations, detailed modeling of the hangar, animated deck crew, briefing room, and control of the carrier.

Once this project is complete, the team will finish up the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer and then return to and release the updated Kuznetsov-class aircraft carrier."

Like the sound of that!

MiG-19 nearing release:

 

 

 

Now we only need 9 additional aircraft and a Vietnam map, and we'd finally have a historical battle scenario 🤩

I like the MiG-19.  To my eye it is probably the prettiest of all the MiG family.  I hope there will be an appropriate environment and adversaries for it one day.

Map of Suez canal-Sinai for 6-days war of 1967, Attrition war till '70 and Yom-Kipur of '73. Would go well with MiG-21 as well....and some Dassault aviation products and their Israeli derivates 😉

Peoples republic of Vietnam established 925. Fighter Regiment equipped with Chinese clones of MiG-19 = J-6. In april 1969 they had 9 of them. Overall 54 J-6s were delivered. But it was a little maintenance nightmare, not enough spare parts,poor repair shops equipment, damp weather eating into electric wiring etc. 925.FR became operational in '72 and had its fighting highligt during operation "Linebacker" against F-4 Phantoms of Tactical Fighter Wings of USAF (usually 432nd TAW). 925.FR usually flew in cooperation with 921.FR equipped with MiG-21s.
