Before I begin on Italy, your thoughts on...
« on: October 31, 2016, 12:48:50 pm »
- Airfield layout:  Continue with the current layout re: AAA placement and pairing, supply/fuel layout, etc?  Overall layout varies from airfield to airfield but I try to make them similar.

- Transport planes:  Minimum fuel/supply at airbases  to remain at 20 to avoid no fuel/suppressed situation; C-47 and Ju-52 to carry 15 units of fuel/supply;  will pick a medium bomber from each side to carry 5 units when default loadout;  Germans will have limited Me323's which will carry 20 units (so one flight guarantees fuel);  sound ok?

- No heavy bombers (initially) at forward airbases, just rear ones (can be moved forward of course);  sound ok?

- Looking at early-mid-late 1944 time frame, will research soon

- AI side will control more territory at each phase start as I'm expecting human side to advance more based on max of 4 humans on AI side

If you have any comments, likes, dislikes about the campaign setup feel free to chime in.  No guarantees it can be done given the framework, but at least it can be considered/further discussed.

Rel,

Couple of thoughts regarding the upcoming Italy campaign.

1. Would it possible to experiment with turning on the skins downloads to see if the server can deal with the extra graphics? I know we talked about it before and I think Gos was going to look into it.

2. Any way to test out the server with the latest additions for IL2 regarding Bomb and Fuze delays?

3. Thoughts about adding paratroopers to make capture attaempts of enemy bases? How would that work for the AI side?

Just some thoughts.

The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are: "Why is it doing that?" "Where are we?" and "Oh Shit!"

I'd capture Gazmata again! ;)

Server issues should be resolved with the new router. It's worth a try tom see if it gets bogged down and if it does, just turn the skins off.

Gos can you turn on the skins on our practice maps?
