Just FYI guys, even though it's kind of implied, Midway on those shots is still WIP http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Heh, I only posted once so I guess it was copied into this one for PF.

The Kate's wings are cool, and Midway is looking really good. Can't wait to see what it will be like.


Cheers

Thanks, B5N and Midway are looking good now as WIP. I'm sure the final product will be even better. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Wow - Thanks for the update - it all looks great but I am a bit puzzled by why there is WIP on 109s, JU87s and other aircraft that we are already flying or AI in the current sims. Why are they being remodled? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

@Luthier & the other developers:

I had one of the Midway screenshots up on my monitor at work a few moments ago. A co-worker/friend in my cubicle looked at it and asked me, "Is that Midway?" I said yes and asked him how he knew. He told me that when he was a USAF C-130 weather reconaissance aircraft pilot back in the '70s he flew some missions out of Midway and recognized the runway configuration and the shape of the island. I don't think you can get a higher compliment than that, a RL pilot able to easily recognize it. Keep up the great work. I'm really looking forward to PF! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It just occured to me -- is the B5N Kate the aircraft Cmdr. Fuchida was on in TORA TORA TORA ? I remember it was a three passenger plane and the B5N in the screenshots looks like it could seat three people. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif if it is, the update gets better for me.

A good pic of a B5N Kate converted to level bomber for the Pearl Harbor attack carrying the bombs made out of modified naval AP shells. Those suckers were 1,600 lbs., large even for FB standards (at least for bombs not carried by heavy bombers).

Luthier: Is the intent for Midway at the Battle of Midway in June 1942? If so, I appreciate the WIP note. The National Archives (NARA) has an OUTSTANDING, yet never published photomosaic of the atoll taken in October, 1941 which shows the extent of the facilities several months before the battle. It's quite eye-opening (note: I do NOT have this photomosaic, but it would be well worth acquiring for your modelers). I have some notes and xerox copies of maps of the period with facilities, buildings, and defenses (down to .30 and .50 MG positions). I might be able to scan these for your modelers when I get back from a business trip in two weeks if you are interested... AND, again, as you no-doubt know, the facilities dramatically changed after the battle, most notably from what I see, the lower lip of the harbour (Sand Is.) was added AFTER the battle, it was not present in June 42. Also note: the Runways on Eastern Island were Concrete, not crushed coral, in June 42.

Forgive my ignorance as im still very new here (and to IL-2 as a whole) but when are the 2 addons getting released... and am i right that they are Pacific and Battle of Britain?

I noticed a big red london bus... does this mean that london will be recreated faithfully? forgive me if it is already in FB/ACE as although ive got this addon i havnt actually tried it yet (still looking at the original IL-2)

Pacific Fighters is scheduled for Fall 2004 release, though this sort of thing, when done right, as Luthier will, sometimes doesn't make deadlines, and may well be Q1 2005. It will not be an add-on, but a standalone product.

Battle of Britain will also be standalone, with a new redesigned engine, and probably quantum improvements in everything and will not likely come out before Q4 2005, Q1 2006.

I too have flown into Midway and the general layout as shown is recogniseable. I believe I have some pictures of Tinian taken in 1945. I'll try to find them for the developers.
