"Bombing the Reich" - and a mod
Happy Christmas, subsimmers! :salute:

Anyone remember "Gary Grigsby's Eagle Day to Bombing of the Reich"?
While not exactly a flight sim, but rather an aviation-based wargame, with roughly the level of detail you'd expect from a Gary Grigsby title - it's certainly relevant to anyone interested in WWII aviation, and playing through a full-length campaign will take you months of real time.

Now, I know this isn't exacty a hot new title (a remake of a pair of earlier titles, it was published in 2008 and hasn't been updated since 2009) - but if you feel like giving it another go (or trying it for the first time - with the Matrix winter sale going it's not excessively expensive), I just thought I'd give you a heads up that after several weeks of work, I released a large mod for it this week :)

The mod, my "Visual Improvement Pack (VIP)" does not affect the gameplay or performance, but basically replaces all the graphics and art files in the game for both a nicer look and a clearer situational awareness.

Here's a couple of before and after mod shots of the same exact game view:

Doesn't exactly turn this rather old and graphically minimalistic game into an HD remaster, but I hope the difference both in nicer art and clarity/readability is obvious :)

The mod's official "update space" is on the Matrix forums for the game, so I will point you there for further details and download links:

I guess that's a bit of a Christmas present from me :D

Meanwhile, if you have any memories or experiences with the game, feel free to share! I actually only got it around Thanksgiving, and had played only a little of it before deciding to take up the mod project - and now I am finally in the midst of a Luftwaffe BoB campaign :Kaleun_Wink:
