Here is an answer from one of our beta testers at the BOBII Beta Forum.
If you do not want to manually manipulate raids, and wish to let the Directives handle all planning for you,
then you can switch this GUI setting from Historic to Optimum.
Config > Mission > Luftwaffe Tactics to Optimum.
What this does is have Directives assign missions to targets that make better tactical sense.
More attacks on airfields, less on convoys, etc.
Not sure where it will send recons, and likely will still be Tangmere until it is destroyed.
Tangmere? How silly. I want Hawkinge reconned first of all!
If you do not already have Optimum selected, you must start a new Campaign before you can use that setting.
Some settings cannot be changed once you start a new Campaign.
Is there a way to prioritize the target types, and/or the items on a target list?
No. Another reason why I plan each and every mission manually tailored to my desires.
Not tedious for me, and is half of the fun. I am a wargamer more than a prop head.
You can tell him that is the only thing that may help.
When we better understand the Campaign code, I want the first recon mission to go to Hawkinge in Directives.
