I think for $15 a month flying b24's/b17's without restriction is fair

Never understood why the 262 is at every base but the 163 is not

The 163 requires special equipment and trained personnel known as "Verrückte Menschen" to handle the explosive fuel.   :D

True but did every airfield have jet fuel for the 262?

I would be OK with that.

But what I would love to see is "Rollin Plane Sets".... but the arrival of the next plane/tank would be based on Factory down times... the side that takes care of its strategic resources gets the newer planes first. (As things are right now, you may as well call this "Aceshigh 1945")

As far as side balancing.... don't mess with the planes/tanks....  the larger your population, the larger the number of troops you need to get into the base to capture it and shorten the window of time that you have to accomplish it in. And the reverse is true for the team that is outnumbered.

Hmmmm interesting suggestion.

I believe the 262 used the J2 fuels which were easier for them to produce and had required no special handling. I’m sure Devil or Perdweeb would have a better answer.

The problem with that scheme seems to be that the player numbers constantly change.  So, you wouldn't know how many troops would be required for a capture, and it would be open to gaming the game.  "Get ready to log out, I'm about to run troops!"   :D

As an alternative, the troop transports could be lower ENY.  They are currently all ENY = 40.  It might be interesting to make the M3 ENY = 18, and the SdKfz 251 ENY = 22.  With a large number imbalance, the horde would be reduced to using LVTs for capture and resupply.  Although, there is probably someone who would complain that their "favorite ride" is the M3 and rage quit if it wasn't available.   :devil

I think its OK not knowing.... "Fog Of War"

As far as Gaming the Gaming...

We already have players hiding tanks in buildings that HT does not fix....

All-Seeing ground and air radar, If one bad guy on the map sees you, every bad guy on the map can see you, matter how far away they are.... no need for SA.

The game is passing around  "Side Switchers" is like a drunk cheerleader on Prom Night, that can Narc out any plan you going anytime they feel like it...


I personally have come to terms that Aces High is an arcade game and it is never going to be the combat simulation that I hoped it would be when I first started so long ago... I have IL-2 multiplayer for that.

It doesn't help that dar can now tell what you're flying (bomber/fighter) and which way you're going.
That's when I called it quits. Dot-Dar was much better.  Actually had to try to make an educated guess of what was going on.
