Hello to all artists http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

As I don't want to do any mistake and hurt anyone, I'd like to be sure that nobody will be opposed to the use of his skins within my FREE project.
So please, read HERE (http://gilles.babin.club.fr/simul-skins-uk.htm)

Thanks.

It looks great!!!!

What do you think also about a Sicily invasion? We should have also MC 205 flyable...i hope, so we could have for the first time the dogfight between Spit, Mustang, P47 and C 205.
B24 from Tunisia bombing Sicily, P47 and P51 attacking the italian positions and the Spit engaging the italian fighters.

For the the Germans, Ju 88 and Stuka we'll attack the Allied fleet.

What about the P-40N's and E's? They played a large part in the campaign

Well, I thought of that .... after the patch maybe ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
The problem is always the same : what map should be used ?

None is really satisfying:
For my Africa 41-42-43 campaigns, I used the online desert map, but it is so little that the ones who don't like long flights wil be happy, for sure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ....but no choice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

For the Malta 41-42 campaigns, I used the Mariannas map:
Guam=Malta, Tinian=Sicily, Saipan=South-Italy ...and a lot of sea for ships....
I felt the colors were "mediterranean", and flights longer so ...well, let's go !

In some way, it's the mediterranean war, but in reduced size...
I know it won't be historically correct, but no dynamic campaign can be...

I have the He-111 template and some skins I made, including some desert ones. I also have the CR-42 and A20 templates and some skins could be produced for them. Just let me know if u need them. I will love to play this campaign.

GilB,

Thanks for your efforts and for thanks to all of the skinners that will allow their work to be part of these campaigns. This package looks fantastic & will be greatly improved I am sure with the pack of flyable Italian planes from Club Med that should come in 3.06M ? :-)

Question: Any Reggiane Re. 2000/2001 in North Africa or were they mostly involved in the Sicilian campaign ?

Yes, I need a skin for a A20 in RAF desert paint (means dark earth/middle stone for upper surfaces) to be like a RAF Boston (it replaced Blenheim IV in 1942)

If everything goes well, everyone will be able to play it !

Note sure ... Anyway, if both are playable, player will be allowed to fly with each of them, I suppose .

Did a quick check about Reggianes and found reference to Re. 2002 Ariete being used heavily in Sicily campaign - although I do not think we are getting the Re. 2002.

Mc 200 & 202 used in North Africa - which we are supposed to be getting - so those 2 would be OK to integrate into your work then.

Thanks,

Jagd

Re 2005 fought in Sicily with good results against the Spit...but i don't think we'll never have it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Re 2001 is one of the most important italian fighter in the WW2, and i really hope Flakwalker could complete it without errors ASAP. It fouhgt in the Mediterranean theater as fighter & fighter-bomber.
For sure, it was involved in the attack against the Mediterranean Fleet, Malta (Pedestal operation), in Scicily, in North Africa (but fron italian airfields) during the operation Torch.

Re 2000 is not a very famous fighter for the Regia Aeronautica, we prefered to it the Re 2001 but sincerly i've to find some reference...

Yes, Re 2002 were escorted by C 205 during the attack over Sicily. Not planned for FB.

C 202 and C 200 were involved everywhere.....but non in the Battle of Britain; some C 200 (I serie) fought in France.

I'm the author of this skin, but i forget to sign in. I've used Martel's template, so, you can only see his sign in it. But you can use it as well!! It will be a honour to me to see this skin in a good project like that (since i'm waiting for it).

Thank you for using my work http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Absolutely no problem for use of my skins for free addons, that's why they were on il2skins after all, so everybody could enjoy them.
