Bodenplatte Career

Recommended Posts

As we draw closer to the final release of Bodenplatte, my excitement for it's Career grows. Are there going to be additional missions specific to Bodenplatte? If there are added mission types, will they be implemented into the other Careers?

 

Edit: Will there be anything new added to the Career mode itself, excluding new mission types and what not?

I imagine Ratcatcher missions would be an important addition.  But most importantly the, "our base is under attack" types would be the most essential if they are adding new missions.

I'm hoping for decent fighter bomber careers (P-47, P-38).  The current ones are very frustrating - slow ingress speeds, no fighter cover and invariably you get intercepted.  For BoBP, (Allied) I would like to see fighter interception the exception rather than the rule and flak being the real danger.  Jade Monkey has a few very good missions in his single mission pack that capture the sort of thing that I am referring to.

 

Generally I would love to see a few more random flights unconnected to my mission.  Once you have got used to the mission template, you can just switch off on the ingress and egress legs - away from the front lines there is rarely any activity in the air.  I would love to have a chance of being bounced to add some tension into what is overall a great single player campaign.  The old IL-2 seemed more random and a little less formulaic in its career mission design.

Yes, a few new countries to fly for. Two at least.

They did mention in a previous DD that there are to be new mission types specific to the western front.

Train hunting maybe?  Or airfield protection flights to shield returning 262s. Low level free hunts searching for widely scattered road transport would be good too, rather than the pinpoint attacks on precisely located vehicle columns that we have now.

there was a career generator previously - is there one that works with BoBP? I always loved career mode but the first ones that came with BoBP wasn't very good, especially the bomber campaigns. I never got past the first mission as it seemed ALL the enemy fighters were just concentrating on my bomber! lol

Aye, that would be good.  I also hope the briefings no longer tell us to "destroy spotted aircraft".  Most of the ones in bodenplatte have stripes.

I think Pharaoh is referring to the old Loft-era career with the Action-point and groundhog day mission scenario.

I definitely agree with the log book, that was great in RoF. I also liked the mission ideas you all came up with. Some I would like to see added are just simple patrol missions. Patrol the frontlines, patrol behind friendly lines and patrol behind enemy lines.

I think more use of fighter sweeps, or escorts would be good, but escorting formations of bombers that are at least at least at squadron level strength minimum. I’d also like to see the option of strafing an enemy airfield after a successful escort, which is historically what the 8th AF fighter groups did once they were cleared to go hunting.

yeah I only tried the campaigns at the beginning of BOS (because they had locked all the mods, etc behind the campaigns) and they were horrible. Haven't tried them since. Any improvements?

I'd like to see more units buzzing around especially near the front. I know we have the 'scattered' and 'dense' option now but for those with rigs that can handle it a genuine furball would be nice once in a while.

I am looking forward a lot to the career mode in BOBP, I hope that we will get a lot of A/G missions when flying for allies with sporadic interceptions, convoy/train hunting, airfield attacks, front patrols, tactical escorts and even recon/bomb damage assessment flights. Having particular types of aircraft in Logbook should also be implemented.
