Hallo,

is anyone there who has finished the 6. mission, and can tell me what secret it has?

I flew over the clouds, I flew under the clouds, I flew north and south a big circle and a small circle. I followed the order to come return , and I ignored it. Nothing helpes, always I got the message "mission not successful"

In general I fly in VR and I am overwhelmed by the feeling of flight, as well as by the quality of the surprising good campaigns.

I would be grateful for getting help, to finish this campaign.

 



Well, 6th mission. Played it dozens (if not hundreds) times. Yeah, this mission is all about flying and watching, observing.
So, you take off. Command your wingman to stay around while you bother with the bet (details in briefing). You fly over the a/field, you SHOULD SHOOT A FLARE while flying over the field and at that moment look down, there at white buildings (I believe dining-rooms) is an automobile. It starts moving 5 seconds after you shot a flare. Watch him. The end of his route is nearby a fireplace. Hotch shoots YELLOW FLARE and fire starts then. Now you should fly as low as you dare to kill the flame by the airflow. Here is the secret: if you make 3 attempts close but not close enough the airfield will be attacked by sturmovicks under some delicate  circumstances)

To shoot a flare from 109:
1.  press "shft+~" 
2. LeftMouseClick to shoot from flare gun that appeared at moment.

It is finished, I have completed all 10 missions with great pleasure. A special thank to "Redglyph", he lifted me over the barrier of the 6. mission. I hope we will see some more of such campaigns in the future.

Great campaign! Is there anyone who noticed  the beautiful music in the media folder! Those mp3 files are also wonderful! Could you list up the name of the artist and the music?

Those music tracks were found at YouTube and unfortunately I didn't save names. The idea was to add some music that "main hero of campaign" might heard at "leisure time".

Campaign completed.
I would like to thank you for your effort, Samson, for this excellent campaign, and also ask you if there is any intention to launch a 3rd part? It would be really great ...

I am playing and enjoying this campaign but I encountered an unexpected issue in mission 15 :

 

Get the Bombs !

 

The video start, then a car is moving along the road and near the planes, then suddendly the car is moving to the direction of a barrack, the camera moves on the other side of the barrack and there is an explosion behind. So I guess that the car crashed on the barrack, but ... nothing else happen ...

 

So I am stuck at mission 15 , any help ? Did someone had this issue ?

 

Thanks

Chip&Dale are on their way!
This horch should stop nearby player's 109th... And camers "jumps into the cockpit"... I played it dozens times before the "release" and all went smooth.

I'll check and report

 

Yeah... Pretty much dissapoined. Vehicle behavior changed since last update. That causes mess in "intros". Not only in 15th but also in 16th mission. Should check all of them... But 15th and 16th will patch right now.

Dear Sir,

Thx for immersive campaign.

Regret cannot go further past mission 6.

Did all what needed but  did not receive landing clearance. Landed last (after J52 and Wingman), received the blue landing marker. Took off again; landed again. Received congrats for successful mission ( had even a IL2 shot down recorded) but after exit had no clearance for mission 7.

Can you explain what I did wrong?

Flying v 3006.

Check six, Nobby

Hi, Grobby!
Today I gonna revise this mission. For now it's hard to say what's happening there. 
The truth is I'm passing Full Mission Editor learning curve while making these campaigns. I flew each missions dozens times. Dozens(!!), not just three or four) And still players report about "bugs" and "mistakes". So, please, don't give up playing this campaign.  You gonna love last missions even better.
I'll post a note when I''m done with corrections.
cheers

Dear Sir,

Thx for quick answer/concern.

Your work is much appreciated, Mission Editor is powerfull but also devilish. Murphy as a lot of playroom to hit hard. It must be frustrating to have to rework the same mission(s) again and again after each version change; so it's not necessarily your mistake. Keep faith in your commitment, my frustration not to be able to continue is a tribute to the quality of your work.

Regards,

Man, there WAS "a bug" or at list "an issue"!

MCU "MissionObjective" fails to work triggered by "PlaneLanded_Report". While "PlaneLanded_Event" works on purpose :)
In this particular (6-th) mission 
"MissionObjective_Success" MCU was triggered either by landing report or by killing the fire.
And my guess what happened: you failed to kill the fire and Mission_Objective_Success failed to work from landing report.

 

Now I linked success to the merry song you hear after landing. Next missions success is a matter of successfull landing whernever in one piece. Should work.

Now, here is the link to 6th mission zip (just replace files in ALLMOST folder).
Remember! You should kill the fire as described in briefing, after that you've immediatly got landing command. Perform proper landing. Mission complete.

And "big" Allmost.zip file was also updated.

Dear Sir,

Subject: 6th mission

U made my day! It did the job but I had to fly really map-on earth, now I understand  why the luftwaffe lost the war (due to the number of the planes I crashed); someone should be courtmarshalled to have imagined such dangerous games/bet! - And I know who! ;-).

See U in the sky and... Check six,

I am stuck in the mission 16 Weird Mission. I did the mission, landed successfully and taxi to the caponiers turning the plane to take off but … I always get a failed mission :cray:

Hm-m... You're doing everything correct. So, where did I miss? Did Hoffman survive? Guess not, cause if alive he would give another order (the last one in this mission). But it should go as free bonus after  mission've been counted completed. And exactly the criteria of success are landing and approaching caponires... And now it's ain't working... Checking.

Rechecked.
Yeah... Somehow I decided that Hoffman should stay alive (by the way he is in next mission) )
And no, mission could not be completed without he performed a successful landing at destination point. 

 

BTW. For the first time was shot down by sturmoviks in that mission :blink:

Hahahaha the IL2 were dogfighting with me and after shooting two down I had to run away with no ammo and some holes. But .... they chased me for a while :) they were VERY aggressive ....

Dear sir,

I finished the campaign under v. 3006; again respect for the work done: it's artistry of Art.

Not being reckless but eager to do my duty I report 5 planes shot down and 9 Arty destroyed during ca 11 hours registered flying of  pure terror ( mission 6), surprises (mission 12), and pleasure to fly ( all of them). I need some leave now after your splendid but freezing intro's. 

I hope this campaign will survive the updates of the game because I will cetainly want to fly it again on a perhaps more agressive way (there is possibility for).

Regards and check six (... and three ... and nine),

G. 

Sorry,

1. Mission 6 should read mission 6 & 12

2.mission 12 should read 16 (weird mission).

Any incovenience is regreted.

@samson Brilliant stuff mate, I'm enjoying it massively! I couldn't resist this little offering by way of appreciation. Great skins by the way but, for obvious reasons of uncensored insignia I've had to hide it!! In which a drunken and somewhat reckless bet is made!...

Spoiler

 

 I just finished the Campaign and it was brilliant! The last Mission was the one that got me and after FIVE attempts I still had to land on the emergency airfield. Those Peshkas are absolutely merciless. ONE shot that I didn't even hear the impact of completely took out my engine!!

Thanks for it anyway, it was excellent and my formation flying has certainly improved a thousand fold!!

Rap

:good:

Hello boys
The Almost campaign no longer works after updating Il2 to version 3.101b, what should I do?
Do you have to update it?

Thanks for your help

@Emil109 You need to resave missions after each update release.

 

To do this open your game files to > C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles\bin\editor and double click on the last item STEditor. Under the Tools tab select Resave all Missions and navigate the tree to your Missions file in Data. Click the start button and sit back. It may take 5 - 10 mins for the process but when it is done you'll be able to use all your saved missions.

Hello Samson

 

I am currently paying the last mission after having resaved through STEditor. Everything is ok and I can play the mission perfectly.

One point is that I can't have the two 20mm gondolas.

Actually I can choose them in the armement option, but once in the game they do not appear, neither work...

 

Is this normal. ? I can't remember if I could use them before having gone through STEditor.

 

Many thanks for all your dedicated time. 

 

Madcop ☺️

For Bf-109F-2  we have no underwing gunpods in this game. 

 

Thanks Samson, 

 

Stupid me. I forgot that the F-2 had a 15mm cannon, instead of the 20mm found on the F-4. I didn't thought about the option of having a single 20mm in place of the 15mm.

 

Anyway this last mission is suicidal ! Even in a frontal pass these russian gunners still managed to blew up the damned F-2. My leader must have had a very heavy panzered one !

 

Lot of fun. 

 

Madcop. 😁
