Sure, but not for right now. I've discovered other B-17 formations that I would like to create.

Last problem : the particles stay white at night, so the contrails are still visible. How could I correct this ?

Also in the .cfg file :

[Unit]
ClassName=B17_CB36
UnitType=301
MaxSpeed=250.0
MinSpeed=80.0
MaxRadius=1700
Length=20.9
Width=31.6
RenownAwarded=100

What does mean MaxRadius ?

I ask this because I would like the units to be visible from a greater distance than a single aircraft, and I wonder if this is the data that controlls this parameter ...

Max Radius - the distance at which he can perform combat operations with the possibility of returning to his aerodrome.

I don't find the solution. But I'm sure that in a supermod (I don't remember which), the particles are dark during the night. For example, when a torpedo hits a ship, the water splash is dark, and not white.

Can you confirm guys ?

great idea for immersion and great work! but b17 where not the majority. british b24, machesters and wellingtons where the most common bombers over germany maybe you can add those too? and maybe fires in the cities of the harbours would be nice too!

Yes, I plan to do that too. But because my time is limited, I would need someone to do researches about how/where/when these aircrafts were employed, and how they flew together (formations).

i think its too much work, adding all real dates. i would just add random flights with a group size related to the year. in 1939 add 5 raids, in 1940 15 and so on. in 1945 it might be 50 raids. even that would be work enough! what do you think?

otherwise here is a list of attacks on the uboat harbours

attacks on german cities
