1. How do you make yourself the leader?  I don't see that option in DCG

What about a carrier?  I saw one carrier can launch wave after wave of aircraft from different squadrons.

The leader is always the highest ranking officer of the mission - so it can change from one mission to the next.  So if you want to be the leader, you need to make yourself the highest ranked officer in the squadron.

 

I'm not sure what you're asking about the carrier.  I have set up some carriers to have as many as five different units on them.

Ok, what is your squadron density, Paul?  I also have 5, 2 fighters, 1 torpedo, 1 dive and 1 scout/dive, but if I set density to full, I always start the mission in air.  If set to dense, sometimes I start on carrier, sometimes I start in air.  On the squadron lead question, I can lead a squadron at the lowest rank if playing US side (USN, USAAF and USMC).  But if I play axis side (German or Japanese), I don't lead any more.  It's really weird.  Lastly, I think my Tulagi map is completely screwed up somehow.  Nothing in endcampaign, or setting in DCG options will change a thing.  It always start in air and the map won't transition to the next one. :(

I never set the density to full.  Usually I play at moderate, sometimes full.

 

No idea how you're leading squadrons at the lowest rank for the US side.  That shouldn't happen.

 

If you change endcampaign parameters after you've started the campaign, it won't change.  You have to re-create the campaign.

 

As for carriers, most have 2 fighters, 1 torpedo (with fewer planes for US), 1 dive-bomber, but I've been modifying them recently to add a third fighter squadron so that two can escort and one fly CAP.
