This thread was requested by AceS. Post here your suggestions for 0.66 after playing 0.65. Every suggestion made will be added to this post, so that the devs get a good look at what the people here want. On October 9th this list will be completed and presented to the devs, so they can make this a better mod, with your help. So, post what you think should be changed, added or gotten rid of (remember 0.66 will be a patch, so some things can't be changed (like overall filesize)).

Please remove the DICE Hanomag and replace it with the FH version. The DICE one is incorrect in that it shouldn't have a rotating 360 degree machine gun position. The FH version is correct with forward and rearward mounted machine guns.

-increase bomber hitpoint/armor, at least for non-vital parts like wingtips or hull. -increase damage either for BF109's machinegun or cannon a little bit -decrease hitpoints of the Jeep, or add a little area-effect to machineguns, so that the crew of a Jeep kicks the bucket more quickly -add Hurricane to Desert Rose (did they really use Swordfishs there? I thougth these obsolete planes were only used from carriers, but maybe I'm wrong) -IL2 handles perfeclty, maybe tweak other planes a little bit using this one as standard, for example: decrease BF110 agility a little bit -IMHO some planes handle strange when flying straight up or straight down, maybe let them stall a bit fast and gain speed more quickly when falling, but I have to test this out more to be sure

- and please keep the wonderful viewing distance, the amount of lag created by this isn't that much after all. With a bit of tweaking from the user's side it should be fine ->suggestion: include BF performance tweaking guide that can be found in the help-forum to some sticky thread or the manual or both

Bombing The Reich should have the objectives somehow marked for allies. Currently I often find myself explaining them to my teammates half of the map runtime. It should also end after all factories have been bombed, or something that way. People have no patience, and will leave the server as the spawnpoints run out.

Fix Rheinuebung and Tarawa. Some severe bugs there.

Suggestion: Remove the "selfkilling" when aiming too close the sandbags when firing some AA. It really ticks me off, other than that its really nothing i have to complain on, maybe more static mgs here and there ;)

- Increase the HP for Lancaster and Wellington for a little - Decrease rifle ROF (bolt rifles) for just a tad. You can fire while the bolt reloading sound is still playing. - Mark the objectives on Bombing The Reich for the sake of new people. - Sound system is a bit strange but I don't know if you can fix that so fast.
