I know you rarley see them up close, but dont you think the skins on the aircraft in sh3 are crappy and blurred, lol the swordfish doesnt even have a pilot it flies itself!!!
Does anyone know where the textures are for the aircraft so i can mod them, ive had a look, each plane has a folder with a TAGA file in, but its not what im after.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I think they should have added a few more aircraft too, with more varied attacks.
For a naval game there is not one single torpedo or rocket plane! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif
The following planes carried torpeedos.

*RAF/ Costal command*
fairly sword fish (torp or rockets)
Bristol Beaufighter (torp or rockets)
Bristol Beaufort
Fairey Barracuda
Vickers Armstrong wellington GR.XI
Gruman Avenger (US)

*Luftwaffe*
Heinkel 111k
Heinkel 211
Junkers 88
Junkers 188
messerchmitt 110
FW 200 Condor

And why oh why do they never strafe your sub or merchant shipping with machine guns or cannons?????

Compared to what SH3 really needs: like AI subs/wolfpacks and milkcows, this is all pretty minor but note worthy.

yes, its a sad fact that the aircraft in the game are not very detailed, but this is a submarine simulation and to that effect, the aircraft are a bit poorly modeled as well as the AI, which seems to have aircraft circle very close to the sub allowing for target practice.. so i mainly try to do what the real uboat captains did.. crash dive to safety.
btw, thats a nice picture of a Ju-88 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif They were arguably, the most versatile aircraft of WW2. I hope Oleg will model them accurately in his upcoming patch for IL2 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I agree, which is why I made this:

The aircraft textures are hidden in dat files in the 'Air' folder. You have to use a texture extractor to get at the textures. I use the one for Chessmaster 10 - it unpacks and re-packs the texture files. I'm not sure where to get it, but I'm sure someone can clue you in.

Yeah, it really looks nice. A big "http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif" to the creator.

Are there any Seafire models in production or already downloadable... just curios, since I'm truly in love with Supermarine's fighter planes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I stayed on the surface yesteday to see if I could bag some birds because i just upgraded to one flak gun (that has a zero reload time) with two machine guns (crew manned) and they were strafing me. it seems that if you are on the surface after they expend their DCs they will try to strafe you.

the flak is great on shipping using the AP rounds!! just take out the deck guns first with the 105 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I've been strafed by Short Sunderlands.
Downed all three of them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif €

Those Sunderlands make GREAT targets. Slow, clumsy, and very big http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

I just reached my data transfer limit for the month. It will be back up again in 6 days. In the meantime, if anyone has the Hurricane file, and has the ability to publish it, that would be great.
