I have my Me-265 specialized:

Yet the equipment is still locked:

 

Is this another bug or am I missing something?

That is weird.  Did you try logging out and logging back in?  Or selecting another plane and then reselecting the Me 265?

Did you also purchase specialization with silver?  Once you achieve it, you also have to pay silver to unlock those slots.

Based on the screenshot in OP's post, it looks like he did.  It says "Your aircraft was upgraded to the "Specialist" configuration".

Based on the screenshot Op provided he's hiding the upper part of the picture where the current configuration tab is shown.

One of his screen shots says it is "acquired" (conditions for unlocking fulfilled) so he prob needs to spend silver and purchase it.

It looks like you either have not purchased the configuration or you have switched back to stock in the Upgrades tab. Please check if you have the Specialist configuration active:

What Admin has worked this hard, and continues to work this hard, for this long?

 

without getting tired of all the little tirades that we subject her to?

 

frankly, we've driven off a few admins in the past

 

Thank you, Blindfold.      We are so lucky that we got you.   

 

we're so lucky that you got stuck with having to deal with us.      not that lucky for you, though

Wait what?

What happened to them?

You didn't feed them to the Vampire, did you?

Maybe OP is attention starved?

What? Aren't admins being financially compensated for their hard work keeping websites with a BBS clean with everyone adhering to the proper etiquette? Just because I and others who have gone off the rails a few times shouldn't drive out the WoWP players that decide they want to be more than just a regular player. The passion to this game should sustain them through thick and thin.

 

For the others who have asked, I flew my Me 265 through the normal grind to get to specialist status (no shortcut with currency), only to find the equipment slots still locked which hasn't ever happened before. I just checked which status is activated by clicking on "stock" in the upper right corner, which brings up a window that has a NEXT button to upgrade to "Ellite", which also has a NEXT button to upgrade to "Specialist". Doing that and 4 equipment slots are still locked. I'm maxed out on aircraft equipment upgrades so that's not it either. Must be another bug. Looks like I'll have to submit a trouble ticket soon if it stays this way (SIGH!).

 

LOL (mostly humerous I think) what Losttwo said. Wg better not be punishing me. He of all players should not get me thinking about another Wg conspiracy against me. That's like poking an alligator right now (I'm in SW Florida and it's gator mating season) and wondering how safe doing this is.

You'd think all the bans would teach him, right?

Forum ban.

 

For both Marco and Fruit Loops.  Going for trifecta, I guess.

 

Maybe instead of clicking on "stock", he should click on "specialist".

 

No, that would be too easy.

Yeah you are correct it is mostly humorous .....or is it....

Any time i have a problem I go through a set PMS checklist,  ( Preventive Maintenance Service )

Shut down game completely 

Check my system for any background programs that may be running and interfering 

Run computer maintenance checks

Restart the game center

Run the check and repair in the settings

Run game in clear cache mode

try switching planes then back

try switching tiers then back

 

Send ticket to support

I finally figured it out. When I go to Upgrades and see my equipment, above them is a "Stock" and "Specialist" choice and somehow it was stuck on the Stock setting. When I clicked on Specialist the equipment slots changed and all went unlocked and empty so I could transfer and add the new equipment.

 

Thanks to all who posted suggestions.
