SWOTL Scoring Information


NOTE: You must be flying with Damage, Fuel and Ammo to "Normal" or your mission scores will not count!
Points awarded for downing a plane, based on type:
Bf109  15 points  P-47  20 points 
Fw190  16 points  P-51D  25 points 
Go229  30 points  P-51B  25 points 
Me262  25 points  B-17  40 points 
Me163  20 points  P-39  20 points 
He162  25 points  P-80  30 points 
Do335  25 points 

  • If a pilot is a TOP ACE, the point value for the kill is 200%.
  • If the pilot is an ACE, the point value for the kill is 150%.
  • If the plane was non-evading (flying in formation), the point value for the kill is 50%. (That means, double the plane value for downing a Top Ace or multiply by 1.5 for an Ace. If, however, the plane is flying in formation, you get only half it's value.)
Ground targets:
Bomb hit  15 points 
Rocket hit  15 points 
Strafe hit  1 point per each 10 hits 
Building destroyed  30 points 
Points subtracted:
If a wingman or flight leader are shot down  -10 points 
If a plane is escorted in a flight group  -20 points 
If your own plane is shot down  -40 points 
If you shoot down one of your own planes  -100 points 
Bonus points:
Mission completed  75 points 
Landing your plane at your home field
  with Standard Flight Controls
25 points 
Landing your plane at your home field 
  with Advanced Flight Controls
50 points 
  • Planes in the same bombing group contribute 20% of their points to all other planes in the group.
  • Planes that are escorting bombers get 40% of the bomb totals added to their scores.
  • Planes that are intercepting bombers have 25% of the ground target hit points subtracted for each plane that is successful in bombing the target.
Scoring is not directly affected by the difficulty level of the mission.  If you do a tour of duty at "Impossible?" level, your pilot's score will increase faster than at Moderate level. However, this is simply because the computer is throwing more planes at you, and you have to shoot more down in order to complete the mission successfully.

Remember that landing on areas other than on runways can damage your plane, so be careful!   However, if you do it close to an airfield it's a little less risky. Then again, a safe landing is always better than a crash, and old pilots say "any landing you can walk away from is a pretty good one."

* To win the Purple heart you must complete the mission which puts your total score above 1000 points in a damaged aircraft.  This is not as easy as it may sound!  Also, once you have passed 1000 points you can no longer win the Purple Heart.  However,  you can always "hex" it in !  (See the utilities page for some help here.)

TFH:BOB Scoring Information

NOTE: You must be flying with Damage, Fuel and Ammo to "Normal" or your mission scores will not count!


Downing Planes:
Bf 109  7 points  Spitfire  6 points 
Bf 110  6 points  Hurricane  6 points 
Ju 87  5 points 

He 111  9 points 

Ju 88  10 points 

Scores are altered based on the following:
Planes flown by a Top Ace  300% (3x) point value 
Planes flown by an Ace  200% (2x) point value 
For "Non-evading" planes  Only 3 points awarded 
For "Damaged" planes  2 points each 

Did you know ?
   Bf 109 Top Aces have "Pink" or "Bright Red" noses on their aircraft. Aces have "Yellow" noses.  All other pilots have "White" noses.
 

Bonus for landing at your Home Airfield:
Bf 109  7 points  Spitfire  6 points 
Bf 110  6 points  Hurricane  6 points 
Ju 87  5 points 

He 111  9 points 

Ju 88  10 points 

Ground Target Scoring:

Based on the following formula for Direct and Near Hits:
(weight on target / 100) + (direct hits x direct hit bonus) + (near hits x near hit bonus)

Bonuses: Hits Near Hits
Bf 109  15 points  5 points 
Bf 110  10 points  3 points 
Ju 87  15 points  5 points 
Do 17  5 points  2 points 
He 111  5 points  2 points 
Ju 88  5 points  2 points 
So, if you drop 500 lbs of bombs from a Bf 110 and get 1 hit and 3 misses:
(500 / 100) + (1 x 10) + (3 x 3)
which equals 5 + 10 + 9, which means you score 24 points

Additional points are scored for:

For other planes in the same flight group (weight on target / 200) 
For planes flying escort for the bombers  (weight on target / 200) 
Bombs from other planes on your side  (weight on target / 300) 
Each ship sunk  20 points 

Points Subtracted For

Planes Lost While: Flying Bomber Flying Non-Bomber
Leader lost  -5 points  -25 points 
Wingman lost  -3 points  -15 points 
Each bomber lost while you are flying as escort  -20 points 
Each plane lost from a flight group you are escorting  -40 points 
Each time you hit a friendly plane -1 points 
If your plane is damaged  -4 points 
If your plane is lost  -10 points 
When on an Intercept mission, you loose points by the formula  -(weight on target / 100)
