  1. I would welcome London because of the airfields that surround it, such as Biggin Hill, Kenley, Croydon, Horchurch, Debden etc.
  2. This problem was solved by removing the Radio line from the camp_init.lua, it was not obvious from tracing the error or debugging.
  3. Ran FirstMission.bat a few more times and it worked, ran the mission and at mission end I get this: = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = WWII The Channel Spitfire = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\bin\luae.exe: ..\..\..\ScriptsMod.NG\DEBRIEF_Master.lua:188: attempt to concatenate field 'version' (a nil value) stack traceback: ..\..\..\ScriptsMod.NG\DEBRIEF_Master.lua:188: in main chunk [C]: ?

  4. Yes, that section is in the conf_mod.lua file already, I had already placed the conf_mod_check.lua file you uploaded above, and placed it in DCS.openbeta\Mods\tech\DCE\ScriptsMod.NG.
  5. @Miguel21 Thanks but this did not work. To be certain I installed from the User Files a new copy of WWII Channel Spitfire. It appears to be more broken than all the other missions. After switching the path.bat to use the modified NG scripts from above and the new base mission I get this when generating the first mission: = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = WWII The Channel Spitfire = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Campaign Version : nil = = = = = = = = = = = = = Script Version : NG (20.60.258) = = = = = = = = = = = = = Player Plane : SpitfireLFMkIX No. 303 Squadron RAF UK Reset the campaign and generate a new first mission.

  8. Ok, you made me go look for it and it wasn't as hard as I feared: "The DCS: World War II Assets Pack will continue to grow with DCS: Combined Arms compatibility and free asset additions that includes: Avro Lancaster Hawker Typhoon C-47 Bf 109 G-6 B-24 B-25 B-26 https://forum.dcs.world/topic/164973-current-asset-pack-list-subject-to-change/?do=findComment&comment=164984 Nineline updated this list in October 2021 so I assume that it's current since I have seen nothing to contradict it since then.
  9. You could try having a look at Suntsags mod There's one for the Channel map and one for Normandy
  10. Silver Dragon, as always thanks for keeping track of the facts and the work you do updating your unofficial Roadmap since ED is reluctant to publish one, someone needs to keep their feet to the fire. The Channel map is a bit of a mix, it is not representative of the BoB but England is a mix of modern and 1944. The concrete strip at RAF Manston was operational for returning damaged bombers in 1944, RAF Headcorn and RAF High Halden were both built in the spring of 1944 and operated from April to September (?) only. France looks like a mix of 1940 and the late 1950's It already overlaps 90% with the Normandy map and I can't imagine that the Normandy expansion won't add detail and airfields in that area. Maybe the Channel will expand North into bomber country and East to the Ruhr valley and give us a theater for the B-17, Mustang and K4. There is a list of planned confirmed additional assets on the forums that was updated once or twice, it has not however been cancelled. I can't be bothered to find it at the moment but it included a B-24, B-26, B-25, Lancaster, Typhoon I, Fw-190F-8, Bf-190G-6 AI assets as future additions. I think all of the ground assets that were on it have been added already.
  11. If you'll loan me € 1,299.00 I'll happily order a Brunner base and hop on the FFB bandwagon with my Warthog grip. But if my wife ever found out I spent that much on a joystick base I shudder to think about what the real price would be...
  12. Problem is, some of us might die while we wait of old age. Not a young crowd, is flight simmers.
  13. Trial the Channel map and see what you think. I was very excited when it was announced and concerned about the future of the Normandy map. Now the reverse is true; an announced increase in the detail area of Normandy and a lack of a roadmap for the Channel. When ED contracted UGRA to make the Normandy map, England was not even going to be on it. After much outcry from the forums,ED realized that bases in England were necessary for the map and they agreed to have the mP expand to include them but limited detail in England. UGRA has released two major updates to the map so far with the addition of London and Paris announced. Between updates they released two expansions to the excellent Syria map and I hope with London we will get a level of detail in England that at least matches the Channel map and the same for the addition of Paris for France. The Channel map already has had its final release according to ED newsletters. In England tt has the best grass airfields in DCS by far and the suspension of disbelief is easy to achieve. France on the other hand needs work. With no roadmap for the future of the map I am a at a loss , it is after all just the top right corner of the Normandy map with detail, once Normandy expands details into that area what will be it's purpose? I am hopeful that it will be expanded to include all of the area covered by Normandy and to thee north and east, but set in a historically accurate 1940 for a future BoB scenario and aircraft set. Currently I love flying on the Channel but get 10x more use from Normandy. YMMV

  15. I'm certain that it generated a new mission, it is when you end the mission that the problem manifests itself. WWII Normandy Spitfire_ongoing.miz
  16. As a control, I ran Falcon in PG all ran well except when I was given an intercept mission, that came up with this error. I opened the ongoing mission in the editor and changed it and all was well. every intercept mission after was fine.
  17. Bad news. First mission will work fine, ends and generates a second. The second mission can be flown but does not end and generate the next mission. No report is generated for the mission and the CMD window does not open. Updated the scripts mod, tried both NG and 20.38.01 same result.
  18. Any chance you could add the MiG-15bis to the appropriate files while you are updating the WWII a/c?
  19. If you open the base mission in the editor it breaks the mission. My ongoing Spitfire Channel campaign was working prior to the last update as long as I left it alone. Also, I think that you have moved some of the setup parameters into other files outside of the init folder and this is causing me a headache.
  20. Again, I urge you to do your research. Above you can see a photo of the 361st FG, 8th AF purportedly on D-Day, although I can find no evidence that they flew any missions on that day and it is likely the 7th of June when they flew support missions for the invasion, they strafed trains and veh traffic reinforcing the defenders on the beach.. Regardless you can be assured that it is in June 1944 because of the invasion stripes that were ordered painted on the 4th of June and removed from the upper surfaces at the end of the month so it must have been taken between the 5th of June and the beginning of July. you can see clearly a D model in the center of the photo. Here is a photo of the same group taken on the 8th of July, half of the a/c are Ds. There was a stockpile of D models in England. There are two main reasons why they were not more common over the Normandy invasion: They did not need to replace the B/C models since they were not being lost at the rate they anticipated and The pilots were attached to their B/C models and in fact many preferred them because: They were Faster; They were more manoeuvrable; and They were more accurate because they were more stable. There were disadvantages as well of course, all these things are a trade off. They only had four MG as opposed to six in the D model; The MG were more prone to jam when fired under high G; and the D had greater range due to the wing redesign and therefore more combat time over Berlin which was the real reason the USAAF wanted them. The K-4 without MW50 for outperforms any 109G with MW50 that was available at the time. So, again, I think that the server is more than fair in the interest of appeasing the Luftwaffe player in allowing some to have MW50. Hopefully we get a time appropriate Bf-109G soon so the K-4 can be removed.
