Jade_Monkey's Single Player (SP) missions

Recommended Posts

Jade Monkey,

I just wanted to thank you for these truly brilliant single missions. I have recently starting playing this version of IL-2 (I've graduated over from IL-2 1946, in all it's modded versions: BAT, HSFX, VPModpack etc) and although the flight model is very different and challenging, I am growing to love this version of the beautiful Game. Your missions have had a lot to do with that. :)

 

Thanks buddy, for folks like me who don't really wish to venture online, your missions are great, and so immersive. Cheers for all your hard work. As a side note I suffered the blue screen drama in a few of the winter missions, what seemed to fix it for me was to pop into the Mission Editor, open the mission file and change the cloud settings. Save (without changing anything else) and Bingo! no more blue screen.

 

I know I am a little late to the party, but I just wished to voice my gratitude. 😀

Thank You.

I just updated the link in the original post, you can also downlolad HERE.

 

 

I also refurbished the old tank missions to use the Tiger and KV1. They are not very good but not much that can be done with tanks until they work on the AI behavior for obstacle avoidance and pathing.

Have had BOS for ages, never really got on with it. Bit the bullet and started to invest a bit of time taking in the marvellous help tutorials produced by community. Still using a fair bit of assistance flying but getting there! Loving it so much have had to get BOM, BOK, BOBP and FC in one big hit! Thank you very much for this set of missions. Brilliant. Enabling me to continue my education in short, sharp bursts!!

Came back from a trip, found this mission and loaded it.  Both times I tried flak took me out.  I will, however, eventually complete the mission.  Thanks for your efforts.  Please keep up your excellent work.

Yes i also got shot down a few times by AA. I guess they should be some of the first targets to strafe before enemy fighters arrive ;)

No, leave them in the missions folder as is, the way they are packaged in the download.

Found the trick to avoid being hit by AA.  Attack your ground target, then exit the area by flying in the weeds at full throttle.  Works every time!

Just like to join the guys in thanking you for the missions. I've had BoS a couple of years now but only recently started really getting down to it (and a ground pounder since 1985, desperately trying to master the air to air side of things) and these missions look The Bizz, especially in VR. 😎

Hmm, weird. I had an issue where the last 4 would not take off but never issues with the leader.

 

Was this after Monday's patch?

Yes, mission worked fine before patch. Now if I take off without a leader , rest of the flight will takeoff after couple of minutes. Probably they collide with a leader because there was a chaos and plane wrecks everywhere at the airfield

Edit : I'll have to test later original version how those spits will behave

Everything seems to be normal again after 3.010b hotfix! Tested two times P-47 Knocking ...mission and leader AI take off like it should :)

Greetings,

 

Let me start by saying that I have enjoyed playing your single player missions immensely.  I have, however, encountered a problem with your, "Fighter - Spitfire - Bomber Intercept" mission.  I discovered the mission only yesterday and installed it on my PC.  Upon launching the mission, the splash screen with the IL-2 logo and a screen capture image appeared.  At the bottom of the screen a progress bar appeared and proceeded to track progress until a full-load was indicated.  At this point, the mission froze.  I ultimately needed to induce a hard re-boot of my PC to restore its functionality.  Working on the assumption that game updates may have affected the mission, I opened the mission editor and attempted a re-save of the mission.  The mission editor crashed.  This is the only mission that I have experienced a mission lock and a application crash with.  Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Greetings - It's Me Again,

 

To my regret, I encountered the same condition with the, "Fighter - P40 - Evening Recon" mission.  This strange as all your other missions I have downloaded and installed work just fine.  Given the mission freeze and application crash, I suspect the condition is being induced by underlying code issues.  Hopefully, this will be an easy fix.

 

Thanks in advance.

@photog95661, sorry to hear you are having issues with some of the missions.

 

I have not been able to replicate any of them. Since nobody else has reported anything similar, it's possible that it has something to do with your setup.

If it's related with the mission editor, then I hope the devs are able to correct any issues that were introduced in the latest patches.

 

Cheers!

Thanks for your efforts.  Your response is a major bummer.  I will download one of the missions again and play around with my settings. If I am lucky enough to find out what the glitch is I will report it here.  Again, thanks for your attention.

I have downloaded and played a lot  of Jade Monkeys Campaign and separate missions and have found them to be as good if not better than the other

offerings, including the IL2 ones we pay for.  

They have the most content and the best visuals but the AI he sets up to return fire are sometimes too effective.       When one comes in on the six of a bomber with a tail gunner you better watch out, their aim is excellent.   I have had my prop just shot all to hell and then down I go.  I sometimes find myself avoiding air combat or a ground attack in order to not get shot down.

But really GREAT fun and I encourage other simmers to download and fly them.

Please do more of these. These are fantastic. They are short, lots of fun and feature lots of the aircraft in the sim.

 

I'd love to see more of these. Maybe some basic bomber missions for the A-20, He111, Pe-3, etc. 😄

Maybe I have missed a post in this thread explaining it but the zip file includes a mission called 'Fighter - Yak-7b - Behind Enemy Lines'  which has the same briefing as 'Attack - Hs129 - Behind Enemy Lines'    It does actually allow you to fly a Tak-7b and I am guessing that it is the Hs129 mission flown from the other side but you probably meant to change the briefing.

Sorry, it was not meant to be published. I created it when trying to make a video for the Hs129 to show footage from the soviet side.

1. Can you make a mission to practice starting, taxi, take-off and then landing, taxi, park,

Most important, if possible, using a long marked runway (f.i. with lights left and right so I can also practice night flight landing)

 

I tried it in quick missions a lot but my main problem is landing and then getting at the right place with the right speed, hight etc because I often can not see fast enough where the runway is (without crashing because I am a beginner and flying while looking somewhere else is not yet a good combination for me, lets say it like this, I am glad it are self-repairing pixel planes). 

And for some planes you need a long runway and often i can not see where the runway starts, how long it is and where to I have to taxi. These things make it hard to practice a good landing without fast uncontrolled corrections because the runway turned out to be more to the right or not to be the runway at all....

 

If possible with a few different planes for instance a very easy to land plane (Stucka ?), a fast plane (FW190 ? ,  ME262), a big plane (bomber)  and I would love to practice with a plane where you have to do all the controls manually from starting it to landing (no clue what model is most manual) so I can focus on that because searching where the runway went while I looked at my dash, keyboard and controls without crashing is very hard (this in a later stadium if landing goes well)

 

I am interested in making missions myself (for Tanks ) but first I must practice a lot in flying (just a few weeks now) and tanking (not new at that, played a lot WT and WoT until I discovered IL-2). 

 

2. Is there some race-acrobatics like mission to practice manoeuvres in a fun way,  maybe things like flying under a bridge,  between to building to close together so you must roll,  a steep dive that ends very low to practice "how not to turn you plain in a ground-mill" (in a fun way by f.i. going of a cliff and then at the lowest point a cave, tunnel, hoop or just something what the editor can do.  A training to make you faster and better in controlling the plane while having a bit of fun. 

 

I do not know what is possible with the editor or how difficult it is.

hi, really keen to play these but not sure why it's not working. I put the missions in my il2\data\missions folder and when i try to open one in game it just sends me back to the main menu.

 

help would be appreciated, thanks.

The latest patch made the missions outdated. You have to open the mission editor, and in the tools menu click on resave missions in folder. Then select the folder with the missions and it will bring them up to the right game version.
