Hey guys, I have already made my campaign and it's working fine. Moreover, aircrafts' squadrons with  UpgradeType=ANY did respond to the command, but I can't upgrade my mig 21 for a weird reason.

Look,

UpgradeType=FIXED
Upgrade[01].Date=6/5/1973
Upgrade[01].Type=MiG-21MF
Upgrade[01].Texture=Afghanistan3
Upgrade[02].Date=6/5/1979
Upgrade[02].Type=MiG-21bis
Upgrade[02].Texture=SovietCamo1

All aircrafts here has the name of their respective folder in object/aircraft, and that's the same case with texture as it has got the same folder's name. So, I don't really get the idea why it's not working should I gave it it's ingame texture name or use the texture folder's name (which I am already using) ? Or is there is something wrong with the command as it's under the missions types' commands not above it?  Thanks for your help in advance.

After answering the first question, I want to know how does the campaign upgrade system work. For instance, what affects it for the player and Al? What is all factors affecting this system,? And I have noticed a werid thing when I put afghanisilver1 (a skin which doesn't exist, but it's the mig21f skin above) rather than the real Afghanistan3 skin in my mig21mf folder, the aircraft upgrades and I don't know how it did that with a skin which doesn't exist, and it was using the first of its skins I think Algeria and if the first folder is czech, it will use czech. So, why does that happen ?

Think that the problem about the update of the planes is that the game engine can't manage the upgrade of hte plane model and the skin at the same time.

You can upgrade the same plane's skin ( MIG-21MF skin-1 to MIG-21MF skin-2) or different plane with the same skin name ( MIG-21MF skin-1 to MIG-21Bis skin-1), Happened also to me in the past

Your lines are for different skins, while the two will be match each other

UpgradeType=FIXED
Upgrade[01].Date=6/5/1973
Upgrade[01].Type=MiG-21MF
Upgrade[01].Texture=Afghanistan3  <--------------
Upgrade[02].Date=6/5/1979
Upgrade[02].Type=MiG-21bis
Upgrade[02].Texture=SovietCamo1  <----------

Yeah, I did tried to make them both afghanisilver1 like the first one (even though I don't have a folder with that name) and it worked but I can't control the skin as it just picks it randomly lol. However, tk campaigns does upgrade aircrafts and it uses a reasonable commands like mine, not the same plane or the same skin name, how is that though?

      Hey guys, gonna need your help, NormalMissionRateDeviation and offensiveMissionRateDeviation. What are their effects like for instance if normal mission rate is 30, and NormalMissionRateDeviation is 10, what will happen? And what will be different if NormalMissionRateDeviation is 20 for example?

      View File Caporetto V2 (Terrain & Campaign)
      Caporetto Terrain WW1 V2.0
      *******************************
      INTRODUCTION
      The Italian Front during WW1 refers to a series of battles fought between 1915 and 1918 in northern Italy between the armies of Austria-Hungary and Germany against Italy.
      Italy hoped that by joining the countries of the Triple Entente against the Central Powers it would gain Cisalpine Tyrol (today's provinces of Trentino and South Tyrol), the Austrian Littoral, northern Dalmatia and some areas of western Carniola.
      Italy had hoped to begin the war with a surprise offensive intended to move quickly and capture several Austrian cities.
      Well, the war soon bogged down into trench warfare similar to the Western Front fought in France.
      The included terrain represents the situation around September/October 1917, just before the battle of Caporetto.
      The Battle of Caporetto (also known as the Twelfth Battle of the Isonzo, the Battle of Kobarid or the Battle of Karfreit) was the greatest defeat in Italian military history. The battle was fought between the Entente and the Central Powers and took place from 24 October to 19 November 1917, near the town of Kobarid (now in north-western Slovenia, then part of the Austrian Littoral). The battle was named after the Italian name of the town (also known as Karfreit in German).
      Austro-Hungarian forces, reinforced by German units, were able to break into the Italian front line and rout the Italian forces opposing them. The battle was a demonstration of the effectiveness of the use of stormtroopers and the infiltration tactics developed in part by Oskar von Hutier. The use of poison gas by the Germans also played a key role in the collapse of the Italian Second Army.

      2. TERRAIN INSTALLATION
      2.1 FIRST EAGLES 2
      - This terrain uses the stock wwiCambrai.CAT file, You must have the "wwiCambrai" terrain from First Eagles for the wwiCaporetto terrain to work properly.
      - Look into your personal Windows folder like 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2', e.g. your MODS Folder - create the folder 'terrains' within if not already there
      - Move the 'wwiCaporetto' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Terrain\wwiCaporetto') to 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\terrains\', e.g. your MODS Folder
      - Move the folders within 'GroundObject' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Objects\GroundObject') to 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\Objects\GroundObjects', e.g. your MODS Folder
      2.2 FIRST EAGLES GOLD
      - This terrain uses the stock wwiCambrai.CAT file, You must have the "wwiCambrai" terrain from First Eagles for the wwiCaporetto terrain to work properly.

      - Move the folders within 'GroundObject' from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Objects\GroundObject') into your FirstEagles installation directory (like 'c:\Program Files\First Eagles\Objects\GroundObject')
      - If you've already my previous Italian WWI terrain, then you probably don't need these objects. In any case if asked to 'owerwrite', click NO.
      3. CAMPAIGN INSTALLATION
      3.1 FIRST EAGLES 2
      - Look into your personal Windows folder like 'C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2', e.g. your MODS folder - create the folder 'Campaigns' within if not already there
      - Move the 'wwiCaporetto01' directory from your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Campaings') to C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\ThirdWire\FirstEagles2\Campaigns\', e.g. your MODS Folder
      - Move the files (bmp's) from your your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Menu') to your FirstEagles2 installation directory (like 'c:\Program Files\First Eagles2\Menu')
      Aircraft Skins
      - All needed aircraft skins are included. Look for them into your temporary folder (like 'c:\temp\caporettoV20\Objects\Aircraft') add them like any other FE2 aircraft skins. You'll already have the majority probably.

      Terrain_wwiCaporettoFolder_oldIsonzo_trench_dry.zip
      - I've added wet fields and water filled shell holes in this new version. If you like more the previous look, then just extract this file and overwrite the tiles within the wwiCaporetto folder.

      PilotDataFolder_Additional_PilotImages.zip
      - These are all the portraits of all aces on the Italian front during 1915-1918. Quite a lot of work went into this. If you like a more historical approach then use these and drop them into your 'PilotData' folder.

      I had an ideal for a Top Gun style Campaign using current inventory Aircraft. It could basically take the Top Gun Campaign and substitute F-16s as the initial aggressors, and F-15s as aggressors near the end. The Campaign would be about an F-15 Pilot trying to earn a spot as an F-22 Pilot. So the initial starting Plane would be an F-15, and near the end an F-22.. I think this would not only just be kick ass … but reflect how things kind of work with such a limited number of F-22s available. There could also be another Campaign included where an F-16 Jockey was given the opportunity, and he would start out in an F-16, then progress into an F-15. Along the way he proved himself and was offered a shot at an F-22. So …. You could just jump into the Campaign that ends up with you earning a spot as an F-22 Pilot, or … you could run the F-16 one, that ends where the one that starts out in the F-15 begins. (and for that matter why not make another similar one for an F/A-18 Pilot, call that Campaign "the long shot" where the best Navy Pilot was given a chance to enter the Program)
      Just the name "The HUNGRY RAPTORS" (for the ADD-ON) is pretty cool (just a suggestion). It would be a great way to show off and use many of the on going projects some of the talented creators here are working on. And be a great modern, current, edition to all the outstanding Add-Ons we have from the past for this game. There's no way I could pull it off I just don't know enough about the game, or have the time. But The ideal came to me, and I thought it was a good one and wanted to toss it out there.
