Secret Weapons Reloaded

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looks like I got pretty far before the summer break. After putting a few hours more into it the last couple of days I have decided to release what we have so far.

Not sure how much more will be added or improved. Improvement is quite unlikely actually, perhaps another 2 or 3 aircraft. Don't count on it : )

 

Also, due to the limited scope, this is a separate release. I will keep the old outdated original up in the workshop for a while longer so you can fix your missions. The old mod will still be removed sometime in future. Fix your missions and submods!

Hey DSabre,

What historical sources are you using to determine what the armaments on a plane are to have?

      Testing out the mod and i mainly fly the Ju 87G you have in the original mod Secret Weapons a Ju 87G with both the

bk37mm cannons and two 20mm MG 151/20 cannon, but in the reloaded version you have just the bk37mm gunpods.

I have labeled it an arcade mod. That way there is no obligation for realism. In the case of the the current version the Ju 87 is based on IL-2 nevertheless.

People got confused when I sometimes used actual armament names back for the old mod as that implied some kind of research. Didn't really research aircraft for the original mod. Not planning to start now. That is why things are only named LMG/HMG/Cannon here.

Of course you are all free to change things with a config mod or simply use addWeapon/addMagazine commands.

Thank you for the update. It seems like the JU 86 disapeared from Flying Legends although it is in the folder. Was that intentional? It is a great aircraft 🙂

That should be explained in the flying legends patch notes or the thread on this forum (hint: it  was removed nearly 1 year ago).  It may come back whenever it is updated which may or may not happen.

Great Mod. I can't seem to get the bombers to drop bombs using the SW Carpet Bomb Module. I've used it loads of times and rewatched TeTeT's tutorial and im doing everything right. Is this mod not compatable with the Module?

this mod has its own carpet module. SW is outdated, not supported for years and should not be used. No, not compatible.

(IIRC you only need to sync this new version to an aircraft, add 4 waypoints and it should work out of the box - already setup for the B-17)

Thanks for adding in the B-17, with an interior! Great work so far Sab.

Next phase could see some US planes. Again as always, they may or may not be added to the mod.

 

?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false   ?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false   ?imw=5000&imh=5000&ima=fit&impolicy=Letterbox&imcolor=%23000000&letterbox=false

Depends if I can find some interiors to copy/paste/adapt and reduce work that way. Otherwise I may become bored again. Perhaps I`ll use the P-51s interior in some way.

An A-26 and a P-40! You are the man!

 

P-51 interior would probably suffice for the P-40 & P-38, and perhaps the Mosquito cockpit for the A-26?

looks awesome! Im still try to keep the old version for as long as I can I still use it for naval aviation for ww2 XD but the flying legend stuff is awesome and the naval legends have made my Guadalcanal mission really immersive.
