Going to get a feel for the aircraft...and start either a Burma Spitfire campaign or a Beaufighter campaign. Maybe a Coral Sea campaign with a Wildcat too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Carrier traps, carrier traps and more carrier traps. No point in ruining a loooong mission by screwing up the landing!



09-29-2004, 08:02 AM
Roger that, I'm going to land on the carriers and freak out the crew and tower.

The crew will be checking the markings on the wreckage of your plane to see which side your on. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

First thing I'm gonna do when I get PF is log on to Ubi's forums and whine about it

09-29-2004, 10:41 AM
Heck....lets start whining about it now!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Seriously though, lots and lots of carrier traps. I had trouble with CFS2, and that was supposedly a lot easier than this, so I will need the practice. Then probably a Wildcat campaign. I love that ugly tub of a plane!

09-29-2004, 10:41 AM
i'm going to play it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

intensively, hopefully a release date will be confirmed soon so i can book a day off.

I'm going to crash into carriers repeatedly until I learn how to land on them http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

09-29-2004, 12:35 PM
I'll complain about the lack of Japanese planes as flyable, whine if the type 11 75mm aa gun is still in the game when it was retired before wwII began. Then, I'll strap myself in a Ki-43 and die repeatedly trying to bring down B-25s.

09-29-2004, 01:59 PM
Try over and over to land a Corsair on a deck until one day a master that skill http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

09-29-2004, 02:09 PM
Download the patches for it. I have no intention of getting PF before it has atleast 2 carrier launched torpedo bombers in it.

09-29-2004, 02:19 PM
mhmhmhmh, first i gona do is some Kamikaze run....on wrong ships...end the war faster ;P

but serious...think ill do some trap training, with a bomber first. then later, maybe..ill try with a fighter...

09-29-2004, 03:55 PM
I'm gonna fly the "new" training where you can jump in and take control, do some dive bombing in a val and some carrier landings...(I wish) then I'll check out the FMB, and all the new cool stuff http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

09-30-2004, 06:43 AM
also what sort of aircraft are you gonna try to land on the carrier in gonna try get a tb3 on the carrier deck http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


09-30-2004, 07:24 AM
I am going to pancake into the carrier deck and make a nice wreckage about 40-50 times. Then I am going to log into the forums and whine about it.

First im going to open it
Then im going to Install it
Then im going to start a Army campeign, no traps that way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Then im going to oggle all the planes in the Object Viewer
Then im going to come here and ***** about how hard it is to land on the carrier, w/o actually trying it myself. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

09-30-2004, 09:19 AM
Before or after I pee myself in excitement?

Traps in US planes, over and over...don't want to spoil it by landing the IJN 'lighter-than-air' planes...then I'd never learn how to do it with the heavies.

09-30-2004, 09:29 AM
I'm gonna **** my pants, play it for 6 hours. Then come to the forums, go through every pre-release whining thread, and slap whiners down one by one with a switft "I told you so" of justice

09-30-2004, 09:47 AM
I'm going to crack a beer, check out what the selection of single missions is like, then probably head over to the FMB and goof around with the Beaufighter and Mitchells a while. Then I'll see what sort of Commonwealth careers are to be had. Looks like it could be a pretty busy night...

Definately Carrier Ops - TO's and Capture. Work on Water Navigation.

Like donkey when in teh situation when he must choose between water and hay. Don't know what is going to be the first thing after install.

After I take a quick look of new features, I will probably start two full real campaigns http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif . One with as Wildcat carrier pilot, and the another as Val bomber pilot.

Icefire an i think alike...im taking that mkVIII out in a burma campainge and waste a few dozen Oscars http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

09-30-2004, 02:02 PM
I'm gonna take two weeks off from work, disconnect my phone, stock up the ice chest next to my computer and learn to fly the Grumman 'Cats off and onto carriers. Then I'm gonna whine about anything I think they got wrong...after I finish using the bathroom.



09-30-2004, 02:48 PM
First thing I will do is take off from the HMS "Lusty" in a Seafire on a free flight in QMB.

After that, free-fly with all the other planes, practice dive-bombing ships and level bombing in general. If what I hear is true there, will be a massive (possibly ~125 MB) expansion patch out very soon after initial release, and it will have some torpedo bombers in it (at least the Avenger), so I will also practice torpedo bombing.

Then I will start a Navy Avenger campaign.

09-30-2004, 02:50 PM
is a carrier confirmd in the qmb?


10-01-2004, 06:59 AM
I'm going to take my Beaufighter up and get to know her. Then the Mirchells (the G version first due to the cannon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif), the MarkVIII, seafire, betty and then the US....stuff http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I dont think i'm going to be able to hold out until that patch.
I may combust shortly before!

10-01-2004, 02:04 PM
Opening a beer, putting on headphones, turning off the lights, then taking off from a British carrier in a Spitfire and going to strafe a Jap carrier and light up some of the aircraft on deck.

10-03-2004, 02:15 PM
Haha i just thought of the MP death trap a carrier's gonna be.
You and your 7 friends are all lined up, wings up ready to take off. some guy up front's taking forever, but you're in now hurry. Then suddenly the AAA starts firing. In the distance you can barely make out the shape of an enemy plane. Then the George starts strafing the deck with it's 20's, knocking plane parts off like they were styrafoam.
Mmmmmmm i can't wait to be that guy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

10-03-2004, 06:25 PM
I think we gonna have this forum filled with whining after PF release http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

10-03-2004, 08:37 PM
carrier landings ... then come here and complain about the corsair .. seriously , what were they thinking.

10-03-2004, 08:45 PM
I'm going to install it...obviously. Then, defrag my HD. After the defrag, I'll spend a few minutes getting know some of the aircraft.

Then the hard part, learning to land on a carrier. I imagine I'll splatter myself all over the carrier about a 1000 times. Then, like my CO, I'll come back here and whine.

I'm going to go online and enjoy the F6F and F4U as much as I can before the (I just got shot down by a Corsair) whiners show up and the patch turns them into mush.
