I said I wouldn't do this, but I am very pleased with how I have just set up an add-on mission for the release of WTCFv2.0

Not only WILL you get shot down if you don't try to fly the plane in an reasonably historical manner, you can follow the progress of your squadron-mates on the radio as they attack a bomber formation, while you tie up their escorts. The longer your flight holds back the escort and keeps them away from the friendlies, the more hidden targets you acheive

new mission:

new 'Magwe':

new plane, simulated Ki-27, crummy new skin by me:

new, good looking skins by Sparty:

I got fed up with waiting for the real Ki-27, so I am continuing to update and add-on to the campaign

If/when the Ki-27 really gets released, I'll put it in if there's time, and if not, I'll send out some instructions on how to replace the fakes with the real things

I guess I'd better get busy and finish the original! So far it's been great, and I can't wait to see how on Earth you managed to improve on the original.

Cool. Looking forward to this.

I'm currently flying the campaign and I must say that I've very impressed and enjoying it.

Hey chuck....i understand your impatience, but i bet that pacific adon will be relatively soon (but not 2 wks). why dont you just do it wiht the temp planes and just replace em when they do come out.

Well i guess thats what your suggesting we do, which is fine. i just think the ki27 and the sally would look really cool in there. nice skins BTW. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well here's the plan- I have potentially an extra 30+ missions, and all sorts of little tweaks to things going on, and added material to existing missions

I am continuing work, and if the Ki-27 or Ki-21 is in the game before I'm done, I will take out all the 'wrong' planes (Ugh!) and replace them with the proper ones

This is the fairly set in stone upgrade in terms of missions-
5 extra 'Rangoon' area missions
5 extra 'Magwe' area missions
~5 extra 'Kunming area' missions
5 or 6 'Northern Burma'missions if we get a Burma map in time (doubtful)
5 or 6 'Behind the lines' mission, where you operate P-40Es from remote and hidden airstarips behind the Japanese lines
2 or 3 extra 'Just visiting' missions, in which you air-start in say Thailand somewhere and attack something

Maybe 7 of those extra missions are done, or are done excepting mission briefings. I'll also have to re-do a movie or two, maybe

That's in addition to a new 'NN' campaign branch, with custom Chinese/US awards, custom rank, and (if I can get permission) menu music. Most of that 'non-mission' stuff has been done for a long time, like the new campaign branch, the medals, etc

Still a lot of work to do

I think it's because I act inordinately proud of my Lies, and because people think I'm slow so they put up with it
