Leatherneck Mig-21Bis Single / Multiplayer Dinamic Campaing (Guardians of the Caucasus) by MBot


Quote:


It is the year 1980 and war has broken out between East and West. You are a pilot of the 982nd Fighter Regiment at Vaziani air base, USSR. Fly the MiG-21Bis in its point defence interceptor role to guard the city of Tbilisi against a two week long NATO air offensive out of Turkey. Meet large strike packages of contemporary adversaries such as the F-4 Phantom II and the F-5 Freedom Fighter and take on the next generation of US fighters in form of the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the F-15 Eagle. Get through to well escorted formations of B-52, perform ground controlled intercepts of bombers in instrument flight at night and get the MiG to Mach 2 to down high and fast intruders. Defend your installations on the ground and wear down the combat strength of the enemy, while keeping a close eye on your own numbers. Your performance matters.


Features:
- Single player or cooperative dynamic campaign
- Open number of missions with variable time of day and weather
- Automatically generated missions depending on previous results
- Persistent losses of ground installations, air defences and aircraft across the campaign, including damage, repair, replacement and reinforcement
- Detailed briefings and debriefings
- Authentic scenario featuring combat units that actually operated in the theatre or could have been deployed there, including actual real-life positions of SAM sites

Are there any good multiplayer missions for the MIG-21 that some nice person could recommend ?

I can't wait to get good enough in the Mig to try this campaign. I have just started learning it and have a long way to go. It's funny to me that BMS feels arcade after flying around in the Mig-21.

So someone managed to do this? Not ED? Just did it anyway?

Come on ED, certainly you can do something similar with a sliver of effort. Yeah, maybe this has limitations and restrictions and whatever, but it's still better nothing.

You just got a free campaign and you're complaining? What's wrong with people? ED needs to focus on EDGE, first and foremost. In addition, the Mig is a third party project, not an ED project. Be happy with what you got or go make your own campaign. All of the tools are available to you.

I'm complaining that a single user has managed to do something, even in part, that an entire company working for 20 years has been unable to do, yes. EDGE has only been worked on the last 4 or so. I somehow doubt this user has worked even close to a decade on this.

If you find that my being frustrated with a 20 year wait is too demanding, well then, allow me to sell you a house today that I will build later.

The thing is JM they built all the tools to facilitate such a campaign. The ability for DCS to import/export mission events to file - allowing persistent attrition - has been there, to be turned on, for quite a while now. However I think it hadn't been utilised because of the security concern of allowing DCS.exe write out to the File system.

I'd also point out that with 1.2.14 there is now a system to copy protect campaign files. Allowing campaigns such as the above to be sold to users, rewarding the creation of such innovation. Previously ED could only earn money from work spent on aircraft modules, now campaigns and terrains will be added to that list.
