Cliffs of Dover (Team Fusion)

Dynamic Singleplayer Release 4

Fly as a British Section Leader in a Flight of RAF 54 Squadron (Hornchurch) from Satellite airfield Rochford.
(As of R4 other options are available out of the box, no manual file copying this time)

After each mission, the mission file and briefing will be updated showing current status and move randomly 1 to 3 days ahead.

In general every three days will give each RAF Squadron a new plane and each shot down will in average be lost at all other squadrons too.

Each convoy ship sunk by Luftwaffe delays shipments of 100 octane fuel forcing you to fly on 'normal' 87 oct. fuel for a few days.

Chain Home Radar detects incoming German formations at 85 miles at altitude and if destroyed the Observer Corps will detect formations near coast.

Airfields bombed will not serve CAP flights.

Ports and Docks bombed will delay 100 octane fuel and aircraft production 1 day.

Industrial areas bombed will delay aircraft production 5 days.

Victory Conditions for RAF is met at anytime RAF outnumbers Luftwaffe or if Luftwaffe strength is lower that 3:1 by end of October.
(but you may proceed to fly the mission well into 1941)



Dynamic Singleplayer


This is a rather unusual mission as both the mission file (mis) and briefing file is updated at the end of each mission flown.
To see the new status in the mission selection you need to back out one step extra, or just click fly and you will see the new status inside mission selected.
Along with those two *.cs and *.mis files there is a *.ini file containing the current status of the Battle.
Details about the ini file is found at the top of that very file so have a look if interested to alter some data.

Improvements R4

When flight lead (RAF) calls out "Let's go and get them" he will head for the targets rather then wait until close.
All CAP flights will intercept the incoming formation once Chain Home Radar detects them (as in prev. versions, earlier flying high and much later flying low and sometimes detection is done by Royal Observer Corps once the formation reach the coast)
All versions (Luftwaffe and Corpo Aereo Italiano not really tested) now available without manual file copying.

Reset

If you ever want to reset the whole mission for whatever reason, just remove the ini file and start the mission.
As you enter cockpit there will be a message that the files have been restored and you should now have a new fresh ini-file set for 10 July 1940 again.
Now quit the mission and return to the main menu (or the game will still show you old information, but the files are fresh in case you just start it up again without going back to the main menu)

Notes

The German strikes will loosely follow the historical dates so expect more attacks on convoys and ports in the beginning and coastal targets there after (ports and CH Radar stations as well as coastal airfields) moving to 'Adler Tag' by 24th Aug 1940 when far more airfields will be targeted all over the battle area and finally moving in over London trying to destroy the industrial areas.
But despite historical correctness the targets will be selected somewhat on previous missions to keep the over all pressure on RAF Fighter Command.
