Fantastic,

Absolutely fantastic. I love the Pacific Theatre, the Zero, Kate and Hellcat and cannot wait to take off from a Carrier deck. This is sweet!

I'm using these images as wallpaper until Pacific Fighters is released.

I'm looking for some help developing a Coral Sea Battle campaign for IL-2 FB. For your reference, the following is a list of the missions that the
campaign will consist of:

1. May 4, 1942 Atttack on Tulagi invasion force (attached)
2. May 4, 1942 Fighter sweep to Tulagi
3. May 5, 1942 Bogey hunt
4. May 7, 1942 Attack on the IJN Shoho
5. May 8, 1942 Attack on the IJN MO Striking Force (Shokaku and Zuikaku)
6. May 8, 1942 Attack on USN Task Force 17 (Lexington and Yorktown)

I started developing these missions from the Japanese perspective, but would love to be able to fly both from the USN and IJN perspective. I'd like to have a movie as well but have never put together a campaign or a movie before.

I have the first 4 missions complete. Would anyone with some mission or campaign experience be interested in helping me refine these initial efforts into a campaign with a introductory movie, so we can release it before Pacific Fighters is out.

We can always revise it later with actual planes and Carriers rather than the substitions.

Thanks to Gaston for his collection of skins that make this work.

Laszlo

P.S. Are we going to get an update from Maddox and be able to fly from Carriers before Pacific Fighters is released?

I agree with Sunbust, Nero and EldOVed



I'm not asking for you to release an unfinished product. I would however, appreciate some type of AEP patch schedule update.

So are the Airdales going to service the aircraft after and before flight? Flying from the Carriers is going to be a P-sser though any way you look at it.

What can one say?
Congratulations to everybody at 1C
You are going to clean up Globaly with this one.
Il-2, Il-2/FB, IL-2/FB/AEP and now Pacific Fighters!
Not only have you created a New Bench Mark for combat flight Simulation!
Every time you create a New Theatre you raise the bar yet again !

Congratulations and Well done to all concerned at 1C.

WHOA Those PICS are AMAZING - Im standing in the Queue to get my copy already - Its OK I got my sleeping Bag.

But I do tend to agree that a ACE Patch may be worth its weight in Pacific screenshot Gold.

Why can't we have both? Screens of upcoming stuff, as well as what they are doing for the game we already own.

great looking stuff. I'm really looking forward for the release of this expansion (unlike BoB expansion that just looks like modelling in 3D, with lots of polys that would make the planes only good for screenshots).
Just a problem on the skin of the D3A Val: the white color is completly wrong; the skin should be redonne with the same color as the A6M2. Both airplanes where painted in a color called Ame-Iro: it was a finish having a brown-greyhish hue. The color of the A6m2 is exactly how it should look (could even have been a little darker). Ame-Iro was a kind of protective warnish if I remember well.
Great job done on the PF expansion.
I only wonder if it would be possible to have seaplanes launched from the catapults of warships (E8N, F1M, E13A, Kingfisher), or at least, seaplanes fighters like the Rufe or Kyofu. The pacific war was a theater where the seaplanes where more widely used. It would be good if this expansion permitted us to fly the seaplanes instead of having them just being AI planes.

Holy Trousers!

This is going to be great...!!!!!!!!

Who remembers PAW, I had PAWGOLD, it was the BEST Pacific War sim! This is going to be the true successor!

Mind you, what's even more interesting is what weird goodies we might end up with, given that this is 1C: Maddox...

Dinah?
Oscar?
Claude?

British Burma campaign?
Aussie New Guinea campaign?
The Aleutian invasion?

WOW!!!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

BTW, for those of you asking for the Jap 262 or 163 variants, fair enough, but don't ask for the Okha suicide weapon, surely that's a point of principle we should stand on.

Those are sure calm seas for the Pacifc.

You only get that kind of waves in the Pacific, in some enclosed cove.

Big water, big waves. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif It would sure be great to get some kick tail waves like in the 3DMark 01 benchmark.

Heck, when you think about it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif water that calm would indicate "NO WIND", so no takeoffs.

Well lucky for you, I won't even have to ask for the Ohka, now that it's already planned to be included.
