You’d better tell the Dev’s and the mission editor, because as we speak I can select Japan as a nationality for an aircraft or other unit.

I share your optimism, but this could also mean that we'll go Khalkhin Gol :cool:

Or an alternate reality where Japan is both in the QMB and the mission editor just to play with our heads.

The best thing about the announcement will be these threads going away for a time.

I was watching something earlier, about the time you posted, Khalkhin Gol and thinking that would be interesting with early war Soviet and Japanese planes. If Wildcats, Brewster Buffaloes, Avengers and Dauntlesses as well as Carrier Ops were out of the realm of possibility, that would be one I'd like along with the Mediterranean

Would be cool they announce PTO as main project and ww2 submarine sim as side project (as they did FC and TC).

 

Ahh man can dream!

 

After that space sim and only after space sim they go Korea🤣😜😜

lol loved the TB3. My squadmates and I used to all load into 2 x TB3s back in the old 1946 days, take off, circle each other and try and shoot each other down with our MGs (the TB3 had like 10 gunner positions). Heaps of fun with all 4 engines on fire. In the end we all went down in flames....laughing. Online, I never completed a mission in a TB3 - got rammed every. single. time. not on purpose though (target fixation) but still rammed.

Channel front: 1942 - 1943

P51 B

Beaufighter

FW190 A6

Me 109 G6 late

Me 410

 

With these planes we could do operations from 1941 with the Spitfire V and Hurricane II, through 1943 with the American types, the Typhoon, etc, and into 1944 with the types already available.

 

This. There was a lot of attrition during this time especially when the US came into the war and commenced daylight raids to France and beyond. Even if we only get AI B17s/B24s for massed bomber formations, that would be awesome.

I'm just imagining Petrovich and Han giggling as they get the artist to add random Easter eggs into the game to troll Jason/all of us.

There's actually already a tail hook control in game, but its hidden. It works on the Spitfire Mk. IX. Just press CTRL-E and see what happens!

They wouldn’t freak out.

You could put an actual Zero model in the editor and people would still be speculating here about Spanish Civil War, Malta or Battle of Helm’s Deep.

That's a great list, I would also add

Winter War

North Africa

Missing Eastern Front scenarios, starting with early 1941, then going further to 1945

Battle of Britain (in case you didn't include it in Western Europe Blitzkrieg)

Western Europe extended with 1942-43 Channel operations, strategic bombing and 1944 Invasion.

So that we could have WWII and pre WWII covered.

Then, only then I would like to see Korea.

I know we all have our dream scenarios for this game but the raids thing, ain`t happening. I`d be upset if devs made the planes, then gave me a bombing run of a whole 12 planes to shoot at.

 

Now if I had to defend a shipyard from a flock of B26/P38 escorted by P47/P51, preferably in South Italy - I`m all for it.

1943 is a bit early for the P-51B, they didn't really start to show up until very late 1943..

Now May 1943-July 1944?  

That's prime time for that plane set

Yeah good point. Honestly I don't know why this "what is the next big thing" issue always come up like crazy. New threads, necro of old threads, butting in threads about something else.... and it's always the same tired arguments too.

True, but if we have both the P47C and the P51B we could start with the 47 and move to the 51, which is what really happened anyway.  Covering fighter operations for the pre Normandy years of the USAAF in Europe only takes those two planes.  I know more is always better but those two would make a huge impact.  And we already have the opposition.

 

Nice thing about the channel map is that it has activity from 1940 to June 1944 all on the same map and with fixed lines.  Just add planes to extend the timeline.

I think its a bit boorish, that's all. Sometimes those discussions derail into quarrels, other times they disfigure an otherwise interesting discussion. Besides, half the people chipping in (for the n-th time) are not new forum members, rather, old ones. One would think they (we?) could set an example.

 

But by all means, go ahead and discuss that for the thousandth time. Don't let me spoil it.

Curiosity and excitement about things ppl love is normal in human behaviour, in fact curiosity and intelligence are that made humanity advanced as we are today!

Nobody forces you to read threads you don't like, or to read whole forum.

Why read threads that are boring to you and then post in them how boring and annoying they are to you?

You take forum too personal and in a possesive way.....no offense!

The devs of 1CGS AREN'T doing the Battle of Britain (Channel map 40-44), North Africa, Sicily, Malta, D-Day. Perhaps after the Pacific, but not now, not any time soon. The reason is because Team Fusion Simulations are covering those areas for IL-2 Cliffs of Dover. Jason feels it's not right to go to a place that another team is already going. He gave them the 1C source code in 2016 because he thought that CloD had a great potential to be successful just like IL-2 Great Battles is. If Jason wanted to cover the Battle of Britain, places mentioned above then he probably wouldn't have given TFS the source code.

 

Even if everything about CloD was said and done in 2012 I still don't think the devs would have done BoB because the game engine can't handle large formations of aircraft, plus there may be more than 10 planes that you have to include as flyables, and possibly add AI planes like the Do 17. The same may go with North Africa and D-day. Maybe it's too ships and planes that's required to do it right. Also, some of the required ships for MTO, D-Day may not have seen action, if not limited action in the Pacific, so it would be a wasted effort if the devs were to go to there before the Pacific.

 

Jason is doing something generous here, he's letting Team Fusion go where they want. Despite some planes in CloD like the Hurricane, Gladiator, G-50, P-40, etc. being available in Finland and the Pacific, TF isn't going to those areas.

 

I'm sure that a BoB, North Africa, Malta, Sicily, etc. covered by TF will be as entertaining as the PTO covered by the devs of IL-2 Great Battles. Doing a PTO from 1942 to 1945 covering Midway, Guadalcanal, New Guinea, Philippines, Okinawa, plus all the smaller islands would take many years to do, as it's taken 5 years for the devs to do 4 installments.

 

I think a Summer 1944-45 Italy could be feasible for the devs, or an IL-2 Battle of Barbarossa which would include planes that we can use for BOM if the Pacific isn't happening after Bodenplatte.

 

Cheers.

Guys,

 

This stupid to argue over. No matter what we do, some will like and some will not.
