Does this have the updated naval bombing devices stuff? (I mean where there are the specific load-outs for when an aircraft is ground bombing versus naval bombing, etc.)
Ermmm, I think so. I am pretty sure it has the latest thoughts on Bomb and Torp Eff and Acc. I remember doing some tests and running some games with some Alt-Device and Alt-Use things, but I'm not sure those are included in this update. It is being played with and might show up in a next update. But for now I have no notice for it, except for Eff and Acc, so maybe tomorrow, yes?
Am glad you asked, I wondered also.
Matt that was the right answer.... <grin>
Yes, Mac, I believe so. Expanding the alternate loadouts was thought about. But polling the groups showed there were many different thoughts about what those alternates should be. Choosing one over another would be a presumption. The choice was not to do any.
The good news is that these choices reside in the device file, which can be easily updated into ongoing games. Our system has an umpire that controls these files and the savegame so their evolution is controlled by a third party. So the choice of alternative loadouts today might not be the same as the possibilities tomorrow. Another reason for not casting Alt-Use/Alt-Device in stone.
Been using this feature for a long time and have a good idea about how it works. It is a rats nest of congruent state models.
Will help all I can and can give some examples how it works. But people who want to adapt the feature will have to do it based on their own preferences. Can show people how to do it, but not what to do.
