Dear Oleg,

Have been buidling some coop mission in 1.2 RC01/02. What
I have found to date which may or may not be relevantto improve are as follows.

1) PBY aircraft - when creating PBN base on sand using stationary PBY the planes tilt down wards - should sit up right even without wheel base as per model. Also can not seem to set takeoffs or landings for PBN AIs in water - defaults to nearest land base which they can not take off or land on without crashing (as per water based undercarriage - no wheel landing gear - but this is accurate)

2) when creating airfield and other targets scenery using objects e.g. tents, oil and fuel tanks, nissan hits etc seems to create lag for other players

3) no scenery objects for creating wooden wharves and jestties etc

4) no RAAF SQN, markings and roundels but a RNZAF SQN in aircraft settings. Lots of USAAF SQNS which is great!

5) no japenese ship, artillery,truck, building objects

6) russian transport ships used but no japenese or alternate german transport or oil tankers ships exist for use

7) Pacific ocean colors need tweaking to some aqua blues etc

8) Can the maps the pacific map be created wth no exisitng or objects except for airfileds? Not too many pacifc airfields on small islands outside of major bases had concrete based control towers most being made of wood etc.

Found that PE bombers can have ja o1 - japanese marking applied which is great and can be used as substitutes until japanese bombers are created.

This is simply feedback from a very happy RAAF SQN member who thinks the new pacific planes and map is awesome.

Kind Regards

Good comments. You can get the PBY to take-off and land on water by setting the alltitude to 0. The speed can not be lowered below 140, but the plane will start on the water with engines off. Quite a sight seeing one take-off.

The major problems I have had is with skins changing randomly after starting a custom mission. Can't get markings on the P-40 to show up either. Perhaps I need to fool around with it a bit more.
