View Full Version : 4.12 Wishlist

03-11-2013, 07:34 PM
Alright, my first post here, and I hoping it won't be a flop. I noticed some things that I think could be better, and what would be, in my mind, cool improvements to this already fantastic game.
I. Russia
1. Break up the Russian fighter campaign into Center and South, and said campaigns would go like this:
South: Bessarabia 1941(Starting place), Crimea 1941, Crimea 1942, Kurban 1942, Stalingrad 1942-1943, Kurban 1943, Prokorovka 1943, Liberation of Kurban 1943, Kiev 1943-1944, Crimea 1944, Bessarabia 1944, Balaton 1945, and ending at Berlin 1945
Center: Lvov 1941, Smolensk 1941, Moscow 1941, Rezhev 1942, Rezhev 1942-1943, Kursk 1943, Smolensk 1944, Lvov 1944, Berlin 1945
2. Make the early model I-16s and I-15s playable and encounterable.
3.Make more LaGG-3s playable (as of now, only the S4 and S66 are playable)
II. Germany
1. Have fighter bombers behave like fighter bombers, not bombers that defend their airfields once in a blue moon.
2. Ju-88 campaign?
3. Add Bf-110Cs to the Bf-110 campaign, and have it start earlier.
4.Add Bessarabia campaign for army group south, and add Berlin after Balaton
5. Why do I see FW-190s and BF-109Gs on January 1st, 1942?
III. Romania
1. Make BF-109G6 playable starting with Evacuation of Kurban 1943
2. Add the following battles: Bessarabia 1941, Bessarabia 1944, Balaton 1945 (Allied side)
3.Add SM.79 to bomber campaign
4. Where are the IAR 37s and IAR 81Cs?
1.Have the fighter campaign start earlier, with Lvov 1941, Kursk 1941, and Stalingrad 1942-1943. Playable aircraft would include CR.42, RE.2000, and BF-109E
2.Add some sort of bomber campaign.
V. Italy
1. Italian fighter campaign
2. Italian bomber campaign
VI. Slovakia
1. Start earlier, using B-534s.
Edit: Found some more
VII. Finland
1. Make Fokker D.XXI, MS.406, MS.410, and P-36 playable
2.Winter War and Lapland campaigns?

Anyone else want to add what they want for future updates?

I'm easy, so it'll be short and sweet.

I hope for an inclusion of the Ki-61 II Hien, the one with the more powerful HA-140 engine. The cannon and machine guns positions are transposed as well.

True, barely 100 of them made it into service due to an engine plant bombing, and the balance of airframes became K-100s, but plenty of other aircraft with smaller production numbers yet are/were included in this game, and flyable.

At this point I just wish it would be released.... :o

Many of these campaigns, aircraft and game updates are now available and when 4.12 does come out there will be a playable Finnish version of the Hawk H75A with cockpit.


TheCrux... Are you talking about the Ki-61 II Kai


or the Ki-61 II Kai late

I want more than anything else in Il2, a proper English channel map that shows parts of France and England like the ones available in ultrapack. Any time-saving object placing utilities for use on maps would be great too. It is good to get a realistic detailed setting for missions but it takes such alot of time. I was delighted with the copy and paste options that daidalos added.
I also think that rather than rare variants of planes we already have there is a sad lack of British heavy bombers. WW2 without the Lancaster just isn't right!
a very British biased wish list I know but I am British so it is not surprising!

As shown in the DT updates... there will be a AI Vickers Wellington included with 4.12. And there are some very good Channel maps and campaigns available.

03-13-2013, 02:15 PM
Do you mean that the maps will be released in 4.12 or that they are available in modded versions? I thought unless a map was released as part of an Il2 update you would not be able to use it I have used channel maps in ultrapack but you can't transfer those maps into 4.11 can you? Or can you and if so how? I am certainly not skilled enough to make my own maps from scratch.

Do you mean that the maps will be released in 4.12 or that they are available in modded versions?

These are a mod addon and can be used in 4.09 - 4.11.

03-13-2013, 02:58 PM
That's really interesting. i did not know that. Can you tell me how to add them to 4.11? Are you allowed to talk about that here? Cheers.

Sorry... you will have to go to the forums that can discuss these items.

Here is a look at one of the Channel maps using 4.101.

That looks brilliant! I will have a search....Thanks

To Woofiedog:

Yes yes, those are the later Ki-61 models I speak of. Where are the ones from the screenshots available? Dying to know.

4.12 has been upgraded to 4.12.1m.



There is also a mod pack for 4.12.1m... Modact v5.20.
