Hi,

I had this mod when I had the UE addition and it worked fine for all listed aircraft, however since I've updated to PE it doesn't seem to work with the Roland CII anymore.

I checked my version and it is 1.4 which is what is still on the MOD page. Has this been updated to PE somewhere else? Or does it still need updating?

Cheers

Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."

No, PE version was not released yet. Can you provide me with list of planes that are not compatible, pls?

Hi,

I've been through the list of bombers and the following do not have the modded bombsight view.

Roland CII
Bristol F2B
FE2B
Caudron

Cheers

Hi,

Further to this, I found that the Sopwith Strutter bombsight view doesn't work on PE either. Although you can see the bombsight, none of the buttons work whilst in the view and the view itself is not calibrated correctly.

So for the moment I've uninstalled this MOD until it is possible to update it to PE.

Cheers

Albert

I recall from my last bomber campaign (which was last spring, so testing my memory a bit) that the bomb-sight mod messed up the BE2's bomb load .... doubled it I think. Just something to have a look at if a rework is in the cards

Cheers!

Edit: Checked back on my old notes and here is what I noticed (circa March 2019) ... Patch V4.22 fixed the bomb loadout for the BE2c back to 4 Cooper bombs (from eight). When I installed the bombsight mod the loadout went back to eight bombs so I think the mod is overwriting the loadout somehow and putting it back to the incorrect setting.
