Custom loadout options so we can choose AP/HE/etc. for our own aircraft including tracer rounds. Dunno if this has been discussed before, and it would be a huge thing to impliment in FB (not so much BoB if you haven't set everything in stone). Just wanted to repost over here since theres a thread going on in general forum about it.

I don't think that'd be entirely realistic as most loadout options were standardized but it would be interesting to be able to customize by a couple of presets so you have a few options to fly with.

I've read that early British fighters in WWII (ie. 1940) started using an interesting mix in that there were almost exclusively tracer rounds at the very end of the clip so they knew when they were empty. This was to overcome the fact that they had no ammo counters. It would be nice to select a loadout that allowed for virtually all tracer rounds at the end of the clip.

Yes, and then the enemy knows exactly when your almost out/out of bullets. That was the other end of the spectrum for that event. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hey Elfunko, takin a break from WWIIOL I see, and yes this is a great idea. It is yet another aspect that will bump up the immersion factor in BoB. I keep posting about BoB and what I expect, and I would have to say I expect something along these lines to be in it. Great idea.

I signed up for a 14 day trial, not really gonna play it though cause I lost all rank with new account. Waiting for WWIIOL to get better...

I hear ya on that one, although I must say, with the new patch that recently came out, WWIIOL is great. But there are still a lot of things that I am waiting for.
