View Full Version : The Black Widow

Has anyone heard if they may ever add the P-61 Black Widow into the Pacific Fighter game. Been out of it for awhile due to surgery, so if I missed something, sorry. Seems an important plane to miss in this game?

It won't happen. Not in the IL-2 engine.

Even with the legal problems resolved now, Oleg isn't going to go back and add more planes other than the ones that are already in the works.

/was building the P-61 for PF

To bad, would have been some awesome firepower. I have written some books about the plane. Hopefully someone will do a game with them in it in the future.

P-61 was modelled but will not appear in game due to some issues with manufacturer.

I saw in the magasine "Computer pilot"that some guys had modeled a P-61 addon for ms cfs or fs as a meen to get money for fixing up a real
P-61 in Amerika the radar didn`t work but cool anyway will check if I can find it again

they could perhapshttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif... oh well gues not

As an ex-CFS2 flyer, I believe You mean payware P-61B for CFS2/FS2000/FS2002/FS2004 from modellers group "Abacus". The money obtained from selling this bird are used to support restoration process of the real one, found a few years ago in the Jungles of northern New Guinea.

P61 would be nice but kind of overkill, nightfighter with 4x20&4x12.7 agains paperplanes like Zero, Ki43 or G4?

There are a few things that the combat pilot can never have enough of; speed, altitude, and firepower. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That is correct stan... in fact I will be satisfied with superior RoC and max. speed...http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Planeeaters p-61 didnt make it in game, the whole grumman thing was not the issue.

Thats as far as it got.

I think it was a mix of copyright problems, not being able to implement radar into the game, and Ubi. Basically from my understanding the a/c companies (as greedy as they are) didn't want that ridiculous of demands. It was that Ubi would have to cover the cost and they were hesistant to do so on aircraft that are given out in free add-ons. Basically they've been pushing Oleg more and more towards the sequel, Battle of Britain since FB has run its course for the most part. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, personally, I'd pay full price again for an add-on with the TBF flyable, and maybe a Yorktown carrier, P-61, etc. . . .

Thats good but tactics are of the most fun

I don't think anyone wants this plane more than me.

08-20-2005, 05:13 AM
There are a lot of things that I would have liked to have seen in Pacific Fighters. A full Solomon Islands map, the F4U-4, the P-61, the P-47N, and more ships.

Give me a flyable P-47N and Bearcat and I'll pay royaly for an add on. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Leadspitter, I'm going to give you exactly one warning. You are a razor's edge away from me speaking with Ivan, Bearcat, or one of the other mods about sending you on sabbatical.

Keep harrasing me with those kind of public insults about either me or my work, and I guarantee you I will do everything in my power to make sure you leave and do not come back.

Are you absolutely clear?
