Butch2k,

I know you forwarded all the accurate ammo counts & weapon loadouts for the German aircrafts to Oleg early this summer. Do you know whatever happen to all those changes ?? ie. big bombs for Ju 87D-3, Fw 190F-8, He 111H series, 20mm engine cannon ammo count on Bf 109F & G series etc......weapon containers (WB81) on Ju 87/88....

Additionally, as you are probably aware, chances are that we are getting several new German a/c additions to FB with the payware addons. Appart from the aircrafts that were anounced, some people are working very hard/completing on the following:

- Ju 88A-4 & A-14 (flyable)
- Ju 88C-6a (flyable)
- Bf 110C-4/B (flyable)
- Do 217E-2 (AI)
- Do 217K-1 (AI)
- He 177A-5 (AI)

(sorry guys if I am missing a few......)

- Do 17Z-2 got dropped partially finished, but myself & GH_Sinner are trying hard to find her a replacement modeler to complete it (AI) in time......

Oleg annouced the following LW a/c at the very least:

- Ju 87D-5 (flyable)
- Bf 109Z-2 (flyable)
- Ta 152H-1 (flyable)

Do not have the complete list in front of me........

Other posters, feel free to add to this post your list of A/C, loadouts & Rustsatze requests.

In preparation for the upcoming release, and so that we get accurate loadouts the first time around (to avoid current & past situation), would it possible for you to please post on this board & forward accurate weapon loadout/Rustsatze for those preceeding new aircrafts to Maddox games/Oleg in time for all to get done before the add-on CDs go to manufacturing process ??


PS: As well, we are still waiting for the DB605DC power plant for the Bf 109K-4 & Bf 109G-10 after you forwarded your request to 1C/Maddox Games a few months ago /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thank you again for all your answers & efforts.

It might be best to restrict loadout requests to weapons already in the game or the additional bombs Xanty (I think), modelled and sent to Oleg (if I recall, he did a AB1000, and some of the larger SC bombs,maybe from SC1000 - SC2500), unless a 3rd-party modeler is willing to model additional weapons.

A.K,

Point taken.

However, the main reason I suggested the WB81 is that we seem to have several new "green" modelers on the Netwings forum that would be willing to tackle new aircrafts for FB. The fact that some of them have very little modelling experience (but a lot of enthusiasm) and that master Gibbage has posted that Oleg will only accept models until Nov 15th at the latest warrants models that can be done quickly. This is why I suggested the WB81 as a non-complicated model that could be completed relatively quickly by a "green" modeller, and which would allow a new modeller to hone his/her skills for either a yet upcoming add-on for FB (after Jan 5th) or Oleg's next WWII sim.

The WB81 weapon container would add a lot of fun factor as well adding a historically available weapon for several LW WWII aircrafts.

Appart from Gibbage's clarification of the end-of-life policy, I have not seen any official word from 1C/Maddox games nor UBI about future add-on post the upcoming payware of January, so I would rather personally see all that can be added done before nov 15th (Thanks to all..), in case Maddox games decide they have no spare capacity to support an older product (FB) with all the other stuff they have coming down the pipe.

All in all, a win-win-win situation.

Thanks for your comments though!

I already seant most of the stuff to Oleg a while ago but i'll add the 177 and 217 as well since they were not covered in my first doc.

Butch2K,

Thanks again for your helpful insights.

I would certainly appreciate if you could send to Oleg loadouts & Rustsatze for the Do 217E-2, Do 217K-2 & He 177A-5 as those are likely coming in an add-on shortly. Bf 110C-4/B is another possible.

I gather that you sent Oleg the same info for Ta 152H-1, Bf 109Z-2 (probably not much there....), Ju 87D-5, Ju 88A-14.

Any rustsatze available for the Ju 88C-6a (apart from possibly field mod WB81A) ?? WB151A ??

BTW, seems like it may be possible that we could twist Jippo arm enought to do a Ju 88S series once he is done with Ju 88A-4/A-14/C-6a.

Bf 110C-4, Ta 152H-1 have already been sent some time ago.
For the 109Z-2 i have a few loadout docs as well, and i will sent updated files for the Ju 87D-5 and Ju 88A-14.

I have sent all the Beladepl√¬§ne of Ju-88A-4/A-14 and Ju-88C-6 to Oleg so no need to worry about those.

Thanks Butch2K & Jippo for delivery again!

Just trying to ensure we do not end up with prior situation....ie. still SC50 & SC70 only for the Heinkel He 111H-2......duh.....

BTW Butch, did you ever get a confirmation of some sort that the correct loadouts for the LW aicrafts in the sim would be corrected at some point as it still isn't. Do you know if we can count on this for the free-addon or the payware add-on in January. Just wandering as we have not heard about this in any form officially or unofficially from 1C/Maddox, Oleg nor people in the know.

AFAIK it will be done, most probably in the payware addon though.
