Default Idea for 4.** Seaplanes you can use

We have talked about warships, and implementing them into the game engine. It seems it is one of the tough tasks to complete.

Some also spoke about the implementation of Catapults and SeaHurricanes, catapults are possible (mods).

But now, there is something that could be done and could be also interesting. A feature that is nowhere else imlpemented.

We have already the "attach" feature implemented by Oleg, some years ago. You can launch a I-16SPB from a TB-3 motherplane.

Imagine you have a Seaplane on a catapult on a Seaplanecarrier, or Warship or something similar. You will be launched from that catapult in the air and you can perform a recon, attack or just a crash mission
There could be used a trigger, invented by TD for spoting the enemy positions and bombard them with the shipartilery.

Hurricanes where launched form Merchantships to support them during an Airraid. It was a oneway ticket to a landbase, but this scenario could be interesting for Onlinewars.

But back to the "hookup" feature, you could radio a message, similar to "I want to land" to your mothership. A crane would move to the site of the ship and pick you up.

You have to land next to the ship and "drive/swim" alongside till you can use the hookup function.

This is a feature that could be used on the MTO, ETO and Pacific theater.

What do you think?! And yes I know this will be alot of work. I can`t complain about anything TD did so far, ok the first 4.11 release had a bug .. but hey, nobody is perfect. And as I have seen this great radar feature, I asked myself, why not.

I dont want a new plane X or more loadouts for Y, 5 kmh more or less ... its still a game and with TD we have so much luck, that we should be beaten if we start to whine about something ...

Without TD the game would be dead <---- keep that in mind pls

Best regards
