Has anyone who has been paying more attention than me, heard anything about the B25? I know it was the intention to make it flyable eventually...???

No hints yet Kev.....2 weeks apparently

I hope it hasn't quietly been shelved, have a strange affection for that plane!

Plus it gives something very different for the allies.

I hope not too, that would be a great addition.

Getting the bombardiers position in the A20 modelled would be good too....

Agreed about the A20.

Sid, have you played much with the German bombers, JU88 and HE 111? 

Sorry for thread sidetrack!

Hi all,

Just to keep you in the loop, I've decided to announce any updates to PWCG here, so you can see what we're dealing with, if you've noticed any issues prior to this where they maybe getting fixed and how changes may affect what we do. We're currently on 12.2.1 so there's a fair few additions since the last update.

 

Quote

12.2.5
Tank and Train Busters: tanks and trains now considered separate victory categories
- Tank and train victories weigh more heavily into medals and promotions
- Tank and train victories have separate counts on the first page of the pilots journal
- Tank and train victories have their own detailed section in the pilots journal
Added columns for tank, train, and ground to chalkboard
Added summary to Squadron Log
- How many pilots lost
- How many air, tank, train, and ground victories
Expanded summary to Pilot Log
- Air and ground victories scored in aircraft type
- Number of Air and Tank victories summarized by vehicle types
Add skin configurations for Spitfire XIV
Added skin pack from 41 Squadron Riksen for Spitfire XIV
- PWCG Skin Pack 16

- Available for download on PWCG Site
Fix 41 Squadron withdrawal erroneous date for Spitfire MK XIV
Fix 66 Squadron withdrawal erroneous date for Spitfire MK XIV

 

12.2.4
Added Typhoon
Added Fokker D8
Added 41 Squadron flying Spitfire Mk XIV
Reverted 349 Squadron to Spitfire Mk IX
Changed 193 squadron to Typhoon with a focus on ground attack
Added 15 new vehicles and guns
Made battles context aware to be manned with British or American units
Fixed missing airfield structures
 

12.2.3
Added squadron level target preferences.  
- Allows squadrons to be directed towards specific target types
- Target preference for P-47 units some is trains
- Added shipping target preference to 45th Bomber regiment (A20)
Made several P-47 squadrons prefer ground attack
Moved units closer to the front on Kuban map April 1943
Made Spitfire Mk IV its own archtype to reflect complete replacement.
- Currently flown by 193 and 349 squadron.  Others keep the Mk IX
- 349 is acknowledged to be non historical.  It kept the IX.  I just wanted at least 2 units to fly the XIV.
Fixed many (should be all) instances of duplicated units
- They weren't really duplicates.  They were just positioned on top of each other.
Fixed case where battle was not being generated when it was required
Fixed case where Ai scramble missions could have a zero altitude waypoint
 

12.2.2
Improved performance of the waypoint editor screen
Improved (slightly) performance of the map screens
- Press new button edit waypoint details to edit 
Fixed error that cause incorrect intercept waypoint altitudes

Somehow i've got the times crossed up, I thought you started the dogfight at 7:30 and the campaign at 9:00. I'm +1 so starting the mission at 11:00PM my time just isn't gonna work for me. I'll be asleep 1/2 way to the target... Maybe i'll pop in during dogfight time but i'm really not into that, sorry.

21:00 is the start time so if you're BST +1 then that would be 22:00 for you?
