Yes it all looks really good!! Especially the clouds. But one question: Will the new clouds have an fps/performance issue??
And HOORAY fer the Devastator!!!! As Hrannar says we "torp plane whiners" finally get them!!
And I thought the "plane whiner" moniker was reserved just fer the "uber plane" advocates and not for the "historically present,combat active in numbers that are suitable to be modeled plane" advocates.

thats because it was.
My post is an extraction of a post on an other board.

It had a 4500FPM climb

The CW-21B was developed for interception of bombers. Unfortunately, the USA didn't have interest in this plane because its build didn't fit in the heavy armor philosophy. However, two countries were interested in it: China and Holland both bought about 32 aircraft. China never revieved their aircraft. Holland actually ordered it before the war, to defend the Dutch airspace. Unfortunately, Holland was captured in the Blitzkrieg and the delivery was redirected to the Dutch colony, the Dutch East Indies, now called Indonesia. All Interceptors (that was what they were called by the Netherlands, instead of Demon) were stationed at the island of Java. Java and the island of Sumatra were a very strategical point in the war because they held a lot of oil resources. The Dutch fought a fierce battle with the Japanese in which they were heavily outnumbered, but helped by British and US, and later on by the Australians.
The CW-21B was equipped with 4x 7.62mm machineguns, that the Dutch had laying around

The Dutch refused to order the 'standard' loadout that the Curtiss factory highly advised, which consisted of 2X 12.7 mm in the nose and 2X 7.62mm in the wings. Instead they equipped the Interceptors with 4X 7.62mm I believe because they either had ordered these guns somewhere else or they had them laying around somewhere.

The new clouds and aircraft look great.

I'm a bit worried about the armoured glass in the Raiden. I hope the opacity is to be reduced for the release version otherwise we'll have another Hellcat where the pilot struggles to see out of his aircraft.

Interesting to see how different the F2A cockpit is compared to the B-239 we already have. I half expected them to be almost identical.

Each airfield would use markers to indicate the in-use runway and any other pertinent information. At least the RAF did - not sure about other countries but they probably did something similar.

More interesting for me was that the panels shown in the screenshots could also be used for marking targets at the front line for some CAS work - a very nice inclusion for the sim.

Oh, and the overcast looks outstanding.

I'm really wondering about European stuff that is done & in the factory: Agamemnon's Pe-2, Jippo's Ju 88s, Prangster's Mosquito... I hope they won't see the light just in Russia. I like those birds.

As for what we are given now, I'm really happy. F2A is essential in Midway and early scenarios, Raiden is an interesting late IJN fighter, CW-21 opens new perspectives in Pacific war, and those AI (Jill, Claude, Devastator, F.XXI) were simply necessary.

And the new clouds are awesome! I missed specially the overcast blanket of clouds to fly above, now we'll 'feel' some altitude.

Thank you for the info, 1C. You know we missed it a lot.

Gorgeous.

F2A, CW-21, F.XXI eh? Might there be a Dutch defence of Java map coming I wonder? That'd be fun.

I don't know what to say about the CW-21. When you consider the amount of work that goes into getting a new plane in game, its incredible that it was devoted to something like this.

The Cw-21b is my work. I did the external and Jeronimo did the cockpit. Sadly no, the Cw-21b is not a fave, but I did fall in love with the little bugger! It has such an interesting and artistic shape to it. The way the bottom of the coweling buldges out as both an area for the exhaust and cowel flap. The extreme ammount the body tapers down at the tail. The slightly swept wings. The guns that extend between cylinder heads of the radial engine. Very interesting aircraft! Im looking forward to flying in some early war servers in it. It will have exceptional climb performance for a early bird.

Too right. Most of the whining and flak is coming from from nOObs and sleeper trolls who only want to sink the ship IMO. On the other hand, constructive criticism is coming from sim junkies who are willing to stick their necks out if it will make the sim better.

I think 1C knows which rants to ignore and which ones have a kernel of truth.

Interesting as I saw him playing in a PF dogfight server, as a Zero, yesterday. And show me where he says he unistalled the game, because a lie of this caliber is simply worse than "No mommy, it was him not me, he started it all!" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

And that talk about PF being dead, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif, that's just for him, as his thread title (... in my opinion), he's not messing with anyone elses life, just expressing his sentiments regarding the game. Just like when I bought CFS3 and threw it outta the window the next day, it was dead for me, in MY opinion. Interesting to say the least, very perplexing.
