Thanks for the feedback senseispcc. It's hard to be too specific in the briefings because the missions are generated randomly. You should be given a sector name in the briefing but, of course, there is always a chance that you won't see any enemy aircraft on a mission. If you have any ideas on how to improve the briefings, I'd love to hear them. Also, you will always be the leader of the flight. That may change in the future when the AI is improved.

Also, when you are supposed to escort bombers, they will always meet you over your airbase. Depending on which airbase you choose and which airbase they spawn at, it may take them a while to get there. They start in the air so hopefully it won't take them too long to get there.

The idea is that the player has the power to create a realistic campaign themselves. For example, if I wanted to fly for I./JG51, I would set the campaign from July to November 1940 and choose Saint-Inglevert as my airfield. It would be far too difficult for me to keep track of who was where on any given day in 1939, 1940, or 1941 and change the campaign accordingly. In other words, I've just passed all of the research duties onto the player.

Unfortunately, that is not possible.


Here are some more features I didn't mention in the first post:
-Your aircraft ages progressively with time.
-At the "battleSuccess" page, the "Refly" button has been replaced with a "Save" button. This will save the mission you just flew so you can replay it at a later date if you wish.
