Greetings Fellow Commanders

Here is the update for my Mod, Alternate History-Silver Wings II;
Despite I never get any feedback regarding playbility, bugs found or anything IN GAME, I decided to keep working on improvments and hunting for bugs with a very dedicated close friend;

The mod was tunned and we believe the balance is fair enough for both sides;

- New art plane/ships added;
- New Video intro to reflect the mod concept added;
- Revised OOBs;

Any content of this mod can be used by the community freely;
Players can face the AI but there is no script for it;

Below is the link for the files;
Please back up your original files;

Tested. The air war is very nice but althoug I understand the 1941 is 1954, there is a lot of thing which must be updated to the new start date to "make sense" the mod.

The idea is amazing. Keep on it!!

Hi Traskott;

Thanks for the feedback and glad u liked; As a matter of fact the time frame is 1949-1955, that said due engine limitations to handle post 1946 pilot's replenishment I was forced to make the corrections for the 41-46 era, which means that 41 OOBs IN FACT depicts 49 OOBs more or less for all nations involved;

Ok, but OOB must be modernized to make real it's 1949, ie: inf squad 49, no IFV, more M-24, M47....

Regarding the nomenclature yes I completely agree with you as they indeed appeared in that fashion at the ver 1.0 of the mod; updated and will be uploaded;
For the IFVs, I rechecked all the TO&E and didnt find any..only APCs are present; if you could point any IFVs with slot number it would be very appreciated;

- M-24s are the bulk of US light tank Bn and french tank units till "1952" for the first as described by most of sources I was able to find on the net, mainly "The Armor Debacle in Korea, 1950:Implications for Today"
by ARTHUR W. CONNOR, JR.

For the frenchs they were the mainstay during the Indochina war;

-M-47/48 only replaced the Pershings by 1953 in RL with limited numbers of the M-46 serving at Korea so I decided to just place the M-48 as MBT for US armored units instead deploying M-46s than M-47 than M-48s;

As a matter of fact I did;
But unfortunately not in a manner that could work in game so it is there more like regular sub than as an "attack"sub

Wait a moment.

Have you thought about making Regulus a DEVICE Type 18 NAVAL GUN?

Give it a range of 300 KYards (170 miles)
Set accuracy to about 50-60

Submarines would still be able to use it (witness the Balao 'gunboat' with twin 5/25s for surface actions), albeit only surfaced; and you could use it on other ships like USN cruisers and carriers (10 CV were configured to launch them)

Yes Sir! that was precisely what I did;
The Regulus is indeed a device , slot 1787 as a naval gun;
I gave it the range of 575 miles and accuracy of 59;
But all the tests I made I never was able to hit ground targets and as far as I know it was designed for that purpose;

Here are the files for both versions of the british Venon ans sea Venon;
These finish the air art updates;
Due the new art for the sea Venon moved to bitmap 47 with the Venon remaining as 53 I sugest to open the scenario into the game editor and change the bitmap field for the sea Venon and dont forget to save into the editor after the correction;

Extract the content into the ART folder/ AliedPlanes sub folder and replace the old files;

https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtWj9SPAvlghhjp86OMl3phvM6Un

This is the new update with the latest additions for the IJAF and RN;

This update also includes a new approach regarding oil/fuel production :

I just did a deep research regarding Oil/fuel production during war and found some interestings things that are missing or I "maybe" understand it in a wrong way regarding the production system;

Manual states that each oil unit produces 10 oil points and each refinary unit produces 9 fuel points; There is no place on the manual that clarify what relation with real crude oil and refined oil these figures are related with so I took the following..10 oil points per day = 10 crude oil barrels per day and 9 fuel points per day = 9 refined oil barrels points per day
By standard a Refinery input of 1 crude oil barrel produces 1/2 refined fuel barrel so I am using this relation into my calculations;

what that means in game terms:
West Coast had 3 major oil field at war time : Santa Fé springs, Huntington beach and Cut Bank;
in the game Cut Bank is not present and the first two seems to be placed at LA;
I added Cut Bank oil field which had an output of 23 million barrels per year;
23M/y represents a daily production of 63k crude oil barrels so I took that figure and divided per 10 oil points giving 6300 oil units at Cut Bank;

I recalculted all oil fields in game in the same fashion with major oil fileds at Palembang - Cut Bank - Balikpapan - LA - Magwe - Tarakan - Kuchin - Miri- Brunei - Medan - Surabaya
All based in historical production figures;

I did the same with Refinary points, for example the BPM refinery at Pladjoe (Palembang) had refine capacity of 45k crude oil barrels per day which in game terms under my assuption produces 27k fuel barrels per day/ 9 = 2700 refinary points at Palembang;
the same was applied to all other Refinaries at the map;
