Hello friends;

We really don't know the future of the IL-2 combat simulator series (of course, i hope it can continue with the great job), but will be great if they can add, on the next version of the game, some allied/axis aircraft carriers. Just imagine how cool it will be at on-line games... Carriers being escorted by destroyers and submarines... Planes being launched in the air and landing on a small deck... A battle between the ships... Just imagine Corsairs, Hellcats, Wildcats, Dauntless, japanese aircrafts... In my opinion, the pacific theatre is as good as Europe theatre.

Please, give your opinion too about this. Thanks.

I agree with you. But it's a lot of work to do.

aaah,i would move heaven and earth to get a carrier in FB,i just love doing this.And indeed,it would be a lot of fun to make some sea battles.just like in the Midway days.Imagine taking off from the flight deck and form up with other flights of corsairs,hellcat's,dauntless and many others,to strike an enemy fleet.That would be so much fun...Well maybe in the future we wil have this,fingers crossed LOL...

It would make for good framerate, only sea /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Anyways, I think the pacific is for another sim. I hope Maddox will make it also /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Well wait a minute, it was said that they will be announcing the next step in the IL-2 line, and what I can gather from that, tells me that there might just be another stand alone upgrade to this wonderful game, that includes all the previous feature, plus new features, just like Forgotten Battles did. On that, I would guess they would implement new maps and new theatres, like the Western Front, or the Pacific Theatre, of course this is only an educated guess, and maybe not even that educated, but I still think it could happen.

Hello guys;

Think about how great would be if we can use ground vehicles and airplanes on a simulator, just like in Warbirds III... The problem of that game, is the realism. Yes, it have many planes, tanks and boats, but look at the panels of the airplanes, for example...
I hope that someday we can put togheter the fun of a Warbirds III on-line game with the realism of the IL-2 FB.

Think about it and give your oppinion about this too.

Yeah, but then you lose focus. In addition to sorting out a flight model and aerial physics engine, you've got to develop a whole new physics engine to accurately deal with objects on the ground, which is a lot of work. It'd be like writing a whole new game - not just sorting out the P-47D-27's roll-rate, but fixing the Jagdpanzer IV's traction on slopes, and the complaints about the T-34/85s gearbox not being quite right...

If you open it up to land vehicles, it'd give Oleg so much stuff to worry about that none of it would really be accurate.

In reguards to an aircraft carrier. I'm about 2/3rd's done with the German carrier Graf Zeppelin (which was never fully operational. I'm done with the hull, deck, lifeboats and misc stuff. I haven't started work on the island it'self.

PROBLEMS:

Oleg would have to modify his code to allow for carrier landings.

I haven't added the weapons systems because the program I'm using won't animate objects.

I need someone with 3D Studion Max or Maya to give it to for finishing. Smoothing techniques and perhaps to help cut down on the polygon count. Right now it's got as many polies as one fighter aircraft!

Someone, other than myself, would need to texture it.

Problems, problems, when will they all end.

anybody with experience that would like to help me on this give me a buzz.

Carrier landings + F6F-5 = Nirvanna. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yes, i'm sure it's very dificult to Oleg and his development team, but i'm sure too that it isn't impossible. :-)

We'll get a 44-45 Western Europe addon and then it's off to Italy, North Africa and the Med for the sequel to IL2.

my 2c, need a receipt?
