I'm playing the campaign as just one guy, as i'm not into doing a Ben Affleck in Pearl Harbor job where i fly every mission in the war.
I'm in 610 squadron and on the first patrol, i shot down one Dornier 17 which was all alone leaving England (poor guy) and two Stukas. I've got to grips with landing with the settings on realistic, so all is going quite well.
The only problem is, after that first mission, i've not been given anything else to do for ages.
Does anyone have any tips on how to get more action without doing anything silly like moving all the other squadrons right up north?
Been flying for 65 squadron at Hornchurch in 2.08. This is the way to fly a campaign as a single fighter pilot while the bosses deal with the main planning.
Flown 5 missions so far with a long wait between mission 4 and 5 while 74 flew to give us a rest. I like the pauses between missions, just like you had in reality where you find yourself waiting for the next call. It can be a little saddening as in my case when the RAF took a couple of rough days and all 65 could do was wait. Immersive. When a mission is called, you`re chomping at the bit to get stuck in!
In the last mission we decimated dorniers. I found one straggler limping home. Set his port wing on fire, flew about (feeling a little sorry for him), then shot up his starboard wing. He went down and hit the dirt. No one bailed. Nursed my slightly damaged Spit back to base.
Single Player is (imho) more realistic for users who want to fly more like the real pilots did - without the planning.
