WW2 Using WOX

Recommended Posts

One of the main reason for coming by this year was to ask the following question.

 

Do you guys still play WW2 stuff using WOX or SF1. Or has WW2 gone over to SF2?

Hey Dave,

 

I hope you have been doing well. This site rocks, as before. You guys have done a great job here. The game is timeless and I never get bored, but alot of that has to do with Combat Ace.

It has been a long time since I have done any WW2 stuff. Of course, I tried it when I first got the game, but I set it all asside for years on end.

 

So I got a small plan together yesterday, and then I finished up the first phase of that plan today. The plan is a very uniform Cactus Air Force that I can use with the Solomon Islands terrain. To do so, I must allow non-stock birds, but I want to minimize the WW2 footprint, because it will all reside in my existing environment.

 

I have identified all the birds; A6M2 Zero, A6M5 Zero, F4F-3 Wildcat, F4F-4 Wildcat, Martlet Mk.I, Martlet Mk.III, P-39D Airacobra, and P-400 Airacobra. All aircraft are SF1, first generation.

 

The Airacobras can carry 1 Mk82 bomb. All others can carry 2 Mk81 bombs.

 

No aircraft can carry external fuel tanks. Enemy planes come from off-map airbases, and its assumed they have already dropped their empty fuel tanks before they get to Guadalcanal, and Friendly planes are operating mostly over Guadalcanal, and do not need fuel tanks.

Martlet Mk.I, Martlet Mk.III

 

Nope, WRONG!!!

 

not in the PTO. Even reading the statement "allow non-stock birds".

 

 

can carry 1 Mk82 bomb. All others can carry 2 Mk81 bombs

 

well, considering THOSE weapons didn't arrive in arsenal until the mid 1950s...

better re think that.

All the WW2 weapons are readily available, and packaged for SF/Wo* in our convient downloads section. There should be 2 - one for the 06 patch level, and one for the 08 patch level.

 

But personally, I wouldn't waste my time on a 1stGen WW2 install.

And considering 90% of the IJAAF/IJN aircraft are no longer freely available (and the ones we have here are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaayy to old and need major reworking or replacing....)

 

 

And by the way....speaking of terrains. As you've been away, you probably don't know how things have changed. Might want to give this post a read.

For personal use, fine. But not for uploading.

Hey Wrench,

 

I hope the authorities have legalized pot in your state. If true, perhaps you should consider some heavy duty medicinal therapy that you can only provide with an appropriate bong.

 

Then, kick back, and check out some of the screenies going forward here in this thread.

 

You might be interested, all this stuff is already finished and operational. I have completed the "first phase". Next phase are just general improvements, etc. I just don't spend hundreds of hours (on anything) especially on hobby stuff. :blink:

 

In my terrain, the Martlets are part of the Cactus Air Force!

Now, one of the goals of this project was to NOT add even one weapon to the weapons ini file. And that has been accomplished.

 

Had the stock weapons stuff provided a UK 250 lb general purpose bomb, I would have used those bombs. They date back to 1926.

 

But I used the Mk 80 series, because there are NO CONTRAINING dates to those bombs in the weapons ini file.
