hi Simon, i like this scenario a lot, but it's got a few probs in its setup!
1) there's 3 Oz cruisers w/ this prob- Australia, Shropshire & Hobart. They have detachments of "No.9 Sqn RAAF" aboard (ID#s 3078, 3080 & 3082 in the editor's Air Groups) but i don't think these dets have any pilots assigned (editor Pilots button). IMO there's a typo in the Pilots section, where 3 groups of 1 pilot each exist for "No.8 Sqn RAAF" (ID#s 4840, 4843 & 4846). I was only able to manually change the name of #4840, then had to use the Copy/Paste buttons to rename 4843 & 4846. Also each of those 3 pilots ain't assigned to the proper Air Group ID#, or to the proper Plane Type (change 04-Level Bomber to 10-Float Plane).
2) doesn't the Marine Ventura Sqn @ Pearl have an upgrade to Tigercat NF? I'm using the Downfall v2 scenario (#14, not #21). setting an upgrade looks to be easy - select an unused slot from the drop-down to the right of the Upgrade button, then enter an aircraft type # in the green field. choose the type # from the listing in the Aircraft section, for example the F6F-5N Hellcat = 438.
3) IIRC the Midway showed up w/ 5 sqns aboard, massively overendowed w/ planes. They started to disappear right away! I got PO'd & backed up my game a coupla' turns, xferred 1 sqn to land & re-sized the others.
ETA: well i made those floatplane changes in the editor & saved them to a new scenario. opening this, i checked the 3 cruisers - Shropshire showed 0 pilots, Autralia & Hobart each showed 1 pilot present. When i pressed the pilot button, or tried to add another pilot, the pilot vanished!
