<Rant>Anyone who references that abysmal TV program, which shall not be mentioned, should be damned to fly IL-2 1946 for the rest of their days, and my god have mercy on their souls</Rant>

If you'd at least read Boyington's book, you'd know that his story is far from that crap above.


Honestly, if and when Magnitude 3 puts out an F4U-1D Corsair, I will be one of the first to buy it, even if there is no CV to land on at first, or ever--but I think they will probably have one.

But one single carrier based fighter does not a war make. I want to see Hellcats and Helldivers and Avengers. And for opposing aircraft, I don't want to just see an A6M Zeke. I want Kates, Bettys, Vals--I want babes in the skys. And not just the IJN were flying the Pacific. The IJA had their fighters etc.

And what about IJN carriers? The problem with them might is that nearly all of them were single ship classes. So to get 2 IJN CV's you would need 2 distinct models (eg the Taiho and the Shinano), while you couldn't make an USS Essex and change the "decals" to turn it into the USS Franklin or the USS Bunker Hill or whatever.

Although I believe it was implied that an USN CV would be built, I don't recall ever hearing that an IJN CV would be made.

But I've still got a few years to go before I bite the dust--I hope--so maybe I'll be surprised yet.

I don't expect to see any WW2 planes added in my lifetime. I turned 70 last month (thanks ED for the ecard).
Look at what's available for WW2 fans: P51, Spitfire, 109F and 190D, Normandy map. There's a pack called "WW2 Assets" but it only adds AI and tanks.
Unless you want to fly jets ED has little to offer.

I wouldn't paint such a bleak picture quite yet. The P-40F could come out of the blue pretty quickly. But having a theater created with a fairly good representation of the aircraft that ought to be available from the timeframe and area... I'm not really counting on it ever happening. I would be overjoyed if it did, but I won't hold my breath.

For now with the version of the game as it is, landing on a carrier, seems easy enough.In any case with the mod "Enterprise".
I hope they will adapt the game for the WW2 aircrafts carriers, because for now the friction is too high on the decks.
I tried with the four modules.

Indeed!


The announcement was made on 6th June (Normandy D-Day), which was most fitting.


And the devs indicated that there is more to come, which is excellent news.




But to return to the topic...

Is a IJN CV needed?


One option might be to have Japanese aircraft land-based (Pacific-Islands or Vietnam type of map) and have only the Allies operating off carriers.

With for example a Solomon Islands map there would be many possibilities to make missions without carriers on either side.

With carriers on both sides there would also be some great possibilities. Imagine a mission which spawns the carrier fleets of each side at a fairly random location, and each side would have to locate the enemy fleet to be able to launch an attack on it

What was wrong with IL2 1946??? Name another sim that gives you as much variety? I've been flying it since 2003 and Instill love it. Sure, the FM's aren't very accurate, and sure the graphics are dated, but for flying WWII era planes It's damn fun and you get your hands on a whole lot of iron that you'll probably never get to fly anywhere else......

Bearcat with Mustang click cockoit and Mustang FM? DCS
Bearcat with Bearcat cockpit and hotrod Bearcat FM? Il2

A-20 so only? DCS.....eventually
Playable A-20? IL2

Everything in Capt Orso's post above? Uh, IL2 lol

Don't banish liars and dreamers to the most prolific WWII flight "sim"!!!!

Why are you playing DCS than? DCS doesn't offer anywhere near the number of aircraft, maps, ships, etc. that IL-2 1946 does. So why are you here?

I don't want to play an arcade game. If I did, I'd be playing IL-2 or BOS and be very happy.
