View Full Version : Just a suggestion about cleaning up the loadouts.

Dear Oleg.

This is just an idea. But the way the game is set up right now. The load outs for some of teh later planes seems to be needlessly complicated.

It seams to have started with the 110 (an amazing plane) but everytime I load up I have to wade thru two dozen loadouts that I, and I bet 98% of the players, never use.

I just think the game would be cleaner if was simplifed.

For example the F4U-1D
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Default
<LI>8 HVAR
<LI>8 HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 AP HVAR
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>1 178 gal DT
<LI>1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 HVAR + 1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 HVAR + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>2 Napalm + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>8 HVAR + 2 Napalm + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2 Napalm + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 8 HVAR
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>1 500lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 Hvar + 1 500lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 APHvar + 1 500lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>2 500lb. Bombs
<LI>8 Hvar + 2 500lb. Bombs
<LI>8 APHvar + 2 500lb. Bombs
<LI>3 500lb. Bombs
<LI>8 HVAR + 3 500lb. Bombs
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 3 500lb. Bombs
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 1 1000lb. Bomb
<LI>8 HVAR + 1 1000lb. Bomb
<LI>8 HVAR + 1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 1 1000lb. Bomb
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 500lb. Bombs
<LI>8 HVAR + 1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 500lb. Bombs
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 500lb. Bombs
<LI>2 1000lb. Bombs
<LI>8 HVAR + 2 1000lb. Bombs
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2 1000lb. Bombs
<LI>3 1000lb. Bombs
<LI>8 Hvar + 3 1000lb. Bombs
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 3 1000lb. Bombs
<LI>1 2000lb. Bomb
<LI>8 HVAR + 2000lb. Bomb
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2000lb. Bomb
<LI>1 2000lb. Bomb + 2 1000lb. Bombs
[/list]
I did notice that you have already left out a few possible combinations.
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>1 500lb. Bomb
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 1 500lb. Bomb
<LI>1 2000lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI> etc...
[/list]
Until we get a drag and drop load out, or more pull down menus for the different stations, it would be more user friendly to keep it simple. For example.

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Default
<LI>1 178 gal DT
<LI>1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 HVAR
<LI>8 HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 AP HVAR
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 HVAR + 1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>8 AP HVAR + 1 178 gal DT + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>2 Napalm + 8 HVAR
<LI>2 Napalm + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>2 Napalm + 8 HVAR + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>2 Napalm + 8 AP HVAR + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 1 178 gal DT
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 8 HVAR
<LI>2 Tiny Tim + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>1 500lb. Bomb
<LI>1 500lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>1 500lb. Bomb + 8 HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>1 500lb. Bomb + 8 AP HVAR + 2 154 gal. DT
<LI>3 500lb. Bombs + 8 HVAR
<LI>3 500lb. Bombs + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal.DT
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 8 HVAR
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 8 HVAR + 2 154 gal.DT
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 8 AP HVAR + 2 154 gal.DT
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 Tiny Tim + 8 HVAR
<LI>1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 Tiny Tim + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>3 1000lb. Bombs + 8 HVAR
<LI>3 1000lb. Bombs + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>1 2000lb. Bombs + 8 HVAR
<LI>1 2000lb. Bombs + 8 AP HVAR
<LI>1 2000lb. Bomb + 2 1000lb. Bombs

As long as you are taking bombs may as well take some rockets. Why take up 2 500lbs bombs when you can take 3?

As for the other planes, who is realy ever going to take off in a A10 with only two 100lb.(40kg) bombs?

Anyway, just my 2 cents. Thankyou for a great game.

Maybe some sort of directory would be nice. Like assigning squadrons to plane too...

I'm just saying in game, not in real life. No In game map is that big, and if fuel was and issue. Why not load up with:

1 1000lb. Bomb + 2 154 gal.DT
instead of
2 500lb + 1 178 gal DT

The damage radius is bigger, better for vehicals and vultching then 2 500lb falling 3 feet from eachother.

Skipping 2 bombs would be better then one, but there isn't a corner of the map that a Corsair with 100% fuel can't fly to and back with 3 bombs, which would be better still.

Speaking of skip bombing, I was reading about B-25s in the Pacific. They always used a 5 second delay when they skip bombed.

I think we should keep it the way it is in game, with that much of a delay, any monkey could bomb a ship in this game and live to tell about it. Where is the fun in that.

* Very Important *

FMB weapon drop down menu must be wider -- so we don't need to re~size to see names of weapons.
