clearly you are frustrated that there is some uncertainty around PTO. 

That might be the case, agreed. I went a bit over the top there.

not the only one feel frustrated about uncertainty around PTO.😭

Im confused that carrier has been a obstacle for PTO... I think the same quality as WT is OK and respawn can been organized by timer, multiplayer landing is a problem, need cooperate, but not too serious to solve. Maybe theres some problem I didnt know, anyone can tell me?

Carriers being an issue is not a position that we've heard from the developers.

 

IMHO, I don't think carriers is an issue. I think the issue is research materials on Japanese aircraft that Jason has talked about multiple times.

I agree. The developers need more detailed information about the Japanese aircrafts flight characteristics. :coffee:

I hope they ad octane fuel.and that magically fizes the usaaf planes problems 

Prplly not

Look at the spit 5 and 9 versus usaaf planes in game. The brits are muuuch more dangerous.  I want the p38 badly but i fear the tempest will be the allies latewar goto plane for effectiveness. I hope im wrong

I hope its next tbh. I have a feeling itll be mustang. Vut im dying for it to be tempest 38 then stang but tempest stang wud be great too

Jason stated in his explanation for the delay of PTO the reason is the complexity of the subject (ships, japanese aircrafts)

IIRC he somewhere else also stated, that making carriers in the quality he wants to have it for this game is more difficult, than they had thought.

Absolutely. I think some took that to mean that carrier technology itself is difficult for the engine but nothing in the statements leads me to think that. Rather, that they would like to do carriers at a certain detail level and that they would take a lot of time to build.

Yes, there certainly seem to be larger issues for them for Pacific theater (proper and useful Japanese aircraft info that they have access to, Carriers) - eliminate part of the problem by starting off with a non-carrier based Pacific battle (eg. New Guinea). Wet the appetite by many for Pacific while working on carrier related for a following release. We will just have to wait and see what their plans are short term and long term after Bodenplatte (though I am sure they already know (short term), and have it sketched out (longer term - in perhaps erasable pencil)). Hopefully we find out later this summer.

They have two years to understand japanese book, let alone we send them lots of english material, if two years aren't enough, I think one more year wont help a lot.

And some Japanese offer help but I didn't see cooperation.

1C did great things with carriers in IL-2 FB so I don't think carriers are the issue. I think it's good 'ol economics - not sure sales would be all that great.

First, this is a completely different developer team. 

Second, for the time they were ok, but those carriers are faaaaaaaaar out of time now.

Give them the time they need to do it right, so everyone (or at least almost) wil be satisfied with the product they will release.

I am also most looking forward to PTO

. Carrier Ops would add so much to an already great game!

Yeah...it would add long boring flights to a game where most people complain if the AF is more than 5 km away from the frontline. Not to mention most people can’t navigate when they have tons of reference points on the map, now try to have them fly over hundreds of square Kilometers of nothing but water.

 

The perfect next step would be the channel fight scenario aka. D-day run up, that shamrock talked about on his blog (and i'm not just saying that because i want a Me 410 already)

Just had an email about the sale that said the following:

The latest issue brought first in-game shots of Tempest Mk.V. Pz.IV-G tank for Tank Crew - Clash at Prokhorovka and airplanes Bristol Fighter F.2B and Halberstadt CL.II for Flying Circus - Volume I just entered the beta-testing stage and will be released in the near future.

 

I wonder if that means the Tempest has entered beta testing too?

I would very much appreciate a sneak peak of both, the Arras map and the Bodenplatte map.

It would be nice to get some information on the ground units we are getting for BoBP. So far only the Jeep and the SdKfz 7 were shown.

Though if carriers indeed came, the devs and everyone else would expect the carriers to be A LOT better looking by now. I mean, the PF carriers didn't even jiggle with the waves. New carriers would be entirely other animals.

Really?  I thought I remembered carriers in IL-46 rolling, at the least the escort carriers which would be more affected by the sea..

I think the problem is that if they cannot build the IJN aircraft they need then there is little point even starting on carriers.  I do agree with someones earlier point that if they have not managed to make any visible progress on IJN aircraft in two years then the prospects do not look good.  I can only hope that they *have* made progress but are just not talking about it yet.

 

 On the other hand,  if they were to build something based in North Africa or the Med then I would love to see HMS Illustrious.   It would be particularly useful on a North Africa map because such a map would probably not stretch far enough North to have Allied airfields to fly from.

You are right! I just checked some youtube videos. It shows how memory serves us wrong sometimes! I stick by the rest though. By todays standards, the graphic quality of the PF carries would be abismal (was great for the time though). What would be acceptable by GB stamdards would probably be a lot of work, maybe prohibitive. We can use the aircraft's graphic development timetable as means of comparing.

my guess is no DD today, as Dev's are all attending a company team building exercise this weekend at Duxford . . .  :P

Could be true . . . 

I'll take some pics on Sunday and post them in offtopic.

They are already in the ME and working. They are missing the people manning the guns and driving the jeep, but they are working.
