    The future of Clod after v5.00, just a few thoughts.

    Maybe I'm a dreamer, but imagine a bomber-centric expansion in TF 6.0. All efforts centered on a flyable multicrew B-17F during 1942 and early 1943 would attract bomber guys in masse. Unescorted raids over sub pens in Saint Nazaire or Brest would be a blast. Less aircrafts (maybe early Gustavs and some Antons) and only one map, just make the fortress the star of the show. Maybe would be a bold and risky move, but I'd be in from day one.

    When the P51 will be available?

    I'm with sevenless. Virtual LW pilots are far more experienced than real german pilots during '44 and '45. They also fight in equal (when not superior) numbers. Facing large streams of bombers with heavy escort would be a different story.

    Will Tank Crew be fully integrated into BoX?

    I'm a Sherman lover too! About its use in BoBp we face two (little) problems: iirc this version was only used by the americans on D-day and in the PTO, and it'll have russian tankers.

    Tank Crew and the Viewer

    +1 Tank Crew is gonna be amazing and I'll buy it eventually (now isn't possible without divorce risk). I want it so bad that I started skinning some Tigers. The problem is I can't check the textures in-game so TC vehicles in model/texture vehicle would be really great. I can't hardly wait for the M4!

    Amazing! It's a dream come true. So many memories with Panzer Elite.
  10. Can I suggest a change for the franchise title? Maybe "One-O-Nine: Battle of..."

    Battle of Midway and Battle of Okinawa

    Hiromachi, Judy presence was minor during 1942, so I'd prefer Rufe or Jake. USN list seems perfect! Just my opinion, of course. About Solomons and/or New Guinea, I´d love to see these, but we´re talking about large maps (from Lae to Moresby, or even larger, from Rabaul to the Canal). In the end you´d have to choose between airstarts (immersion killer) or very long flights.

    Future Additions to IL2

    May God hear you, Feathered_IV! IMHO the best move would be a completely new theater (PTO, MTO...) in order to attract new customers, and release small addons for the Ost Front like Odessa map, Tante Ju and/or variants of existing aircraft for the russian market.

    BoS Premium code

    Hi! As some of you can remember, I won a copy of BoS Premium during the Superbowl contest some time ago. I already own a Standard account, and I thought it would be better to attract new pilots to the community rather than having two accounts for the sole benefit of the La-5 and 190 (I´m not really much interested in the latter). I tried to offer it to friends but they already have it so I´m offering this BoS Premium code to a new pilot, maybe a friend or relative, or someone who can´t afford it. I´ll give it to the first reply, but please, don´t apply if you already have a standard version and you just want two extra aircraft.

    BoS Premium code

    I´ll send you the code for your friend ASAP, milo.
  17. Burma would be great, Hiromachi, but a PTO installment without carriers would be like a party without booze.
  18. Completely agree. Right now, as it is, BoS is perfect for Eastern Front, and maybe for Libya or Tunisia. As much as I love the PTO, I think it wouldn´t be easy to organize strikes against carriers, and in the end we would see plenty of CAPs versus snoopers. Of course I can be wrong, and squadrons could make coordinated attacks. This could change the current mindset. Longer flight times aren´t bad, but not everyone is willing to fly uneventfully for one hour or more. Using Guadalcanal as an example, flying from Bougainville (Rabaul would be even worse) to Henderson is a no go for many people. And I don´t even know if a map that large could be possible with this engine.
  19. First, IMHO I would stick with the fighter-attacker/light bomber-medium/heavy bomber set. Anyway, I´m just going to express my opinion and/or wishes. I´m not saying what the devs should do or anything, East Front has never been my cup of tea, but right now I´m enjoying BoS more than I expected. About the future, I would love to see the Pacific (1942) sooner than later, specially carrier ops oriented. Pros: -Sea maps: Coral Sea or Midway could be created easily. -Balance: one Zero is better than a Wildcat, two Wildcats are better than two Zeros. -Fresh air (therefore new costumers) Cons: -Land maps: Guadalcanal and/or New Guinea are huge. That means additional difficulty for map creation and long flights (not for everyone). -New challenges: ships physics, carrier ops, seaplanes... I´m not sure if this can be easily implemented on the engine or not. I would stick with Navy aircraft (and two Army fighters as Premium, so they would be apealling), so an example of airplane set would be like this: F4F-3/4 SBD-3 TBD-1 TBF-1 P-38/P-39 as premium aircraft A6M2-21 D3A1 B5N2 G4M1 Ki-43 (Premium) Well, that´s what I really would love to see someday. Just my two cents.
