  1. Looks quite a bit there for the single player so great news on that content, really appreciated. Health issues mean I play very rarely so there should be enough to keep me entertained for there for a start, hopefully they will not be too long in duration as this sim does not seem to have a auto stabilizer like others and something for me that really has been a must to allow me any chance to play at all especially the longer missions, anyway, we will see what happens, looking forward to trying at least some of those when released. As for a favourite image, difficult, however, the first and fourth with the Wellington stand out for me. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  2. Shamrock always provides a very good review of whatever he is writing about so this is another superb effort on his part for what I have always found to be a excellent series of campaigns from BlackSix. I have difficulty using my hands and arms for any length of time these days so his campaigns give me the opportunity to actually put a little time into the game as mission length is reasonable, besides the short flights involved scripted campaigns always were my favoured way of using both the old and new IL-2 series of simulations so for me the in house campaigns are always a must buy, I have never been disappointed so far. Managed to make a start on this latest addition last night, flew the first two missions at various times during the night and enjoyed getting back into my favoured mud mover. Thank you very much for your work BlackSix , really appreciated. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  3. Thank you very much for the update guys, downloaded and installed okay as far as I can tell, really appreciated. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  4. We are all being asked to take that gamble on a product put out by a very talented team of part timers, not just the VR crowd, that is what I was pointing out, however, the rest of us are not constantly saying we will not buy in until our precious little bit is included, if we all decide not to get involved then there is no future for this or any product in the aviation genre. If someone does not want to get involved then fine, just leave us be and go do their own thing, those of us that are interested will try to help bring forward this and hopefully the next DLC in this and the GB series, we know they want VR, the team has said they will try to add it when they can. I could understand if for some technical reason the game could not be played at all, this can but for the moment purely in the time honoured way until the opportunity can be found to add anything further, that means anyone interested in this genre has to take that chance, there is no other way unless some individual or company steps in and provides the money, simple as. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  5. Team Fusion have already said if the Tobruk module is successful they will do VR, unfortunately that requires the module to sell well, here we are though with the very people who want VR saying they will not buy until it is there. Now just supposing all us single players with no TIR or VR decide we do not want to support the project because the VR crowd are so selfish, where to then. Sitting on the fence and just waiting for your own favoured thing to be added will not get anything done, all that happens then is what might have been a very promising project will flounder due to lack of support. Just think if all us founders for the GB series had said we will not buy in until this and that was added to our liking, we would not be where we are now, think about that guys, there is nothing for free in gaming it takes dedication and money to bring things on and even now I still have no beloved Finnish front but I enjoy what is there when I am able. Playing without your shinny toys is not game breaking, you can still fly with a flat screen and mouse, this particular neanderthal still plays 1946 and enjoys it, W.T.F. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  6. The Spitfire is a outstanding model, cannot believe you guys are so far advanced with it. Hard to imagine the dinky little warplane we had in 1939 turned into such a beast, the late models look almost too big for their boots, hard to imagine how anyone can control such a machine, that undercarriage will I fear create much devilment for those of us trying to land and taxi it. Thank you very much for the update, really appreciated. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  7. I always like these interviews, looking forward to the next, thank you very much, really appreciated. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  8. As long as us single players all buy the new DLC all will be good with the world and that will provide the finance for VR and any other missing elements, we need to understand the team could only do so much with a old title and it certainly looks impressive from what we have seen so far. There are many new planes and countless upgrades to those already in use with a new map and objects, how people can always go on about the cost is beyond me, too many folks wanting everything for nothing will not help develop this sim further, give the new DLC a chance, let us see how it performs on our PC before going into critique mode. The guys should be congratulated for the tremendous efforts they have made so far, with and without source code. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  9. Great to see we are finally getting close although I was very disappointed not to see the buy button active, tormenting us again, come on guys let it go will you. I am a bit worried about this Steam key thing, what exactly does that do? Blitz is already on my HD and running from Steam, now that is all I use from Steam and I would rather not have to use it at all but such is life, anyway, I always purchase from the store here so is this going to be troublesome? There seem to still be people struggling with Steam integration, whatever that is, when they use Steam and this site, would Tobruk not just go straight into my existing directory and fire up from there wherever I bought it? Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  10. Great to see another famous aircraft come together, not a Jug fan myself but it should find a lot of love in the community, as always the model is yet another awesome replica well made and painted. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  11. That is a very comprehensive selection of aircraft coming our way, really looking forward to actually taking to the air in them. Hard to say what I personally want the most, Wellington, D-520 and Bf-108 are quite unique as flyable types and so very welcome additions to the IL-2 brand and to the flyable line up for me but there are so many great aircraft available to the player that this new module I think has to be top of any purchase list for anyone interested in this genre. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  12. The shot above of the D-520 is certainly my favourite image of the lot, but as always it is difficult to pick one above the rest as the sim lends itself to some lovely shots. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  13. Great to see that beast finally ready for action, superb DD, thank yo very much to all involved. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  14. I for one would love to see the Dornier Do 17 even if only AI, I am sure we could find a good use for it on the existing and forthcoming maps. Even if it does not strictly fit a certain period on our maps I think for sure the mission/campaign builders would find a use for it for early channel scenarios and if we ever get a Finnish map it would be right at home there, we can live and hope. That said a Dornier 215 and/or 217 could be considered to have been more numerous for our maps, the 215 in the East was utilsed by the Hungarians and the 217 in Europe later in the war. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  15. I love this cloud mod, it gets even better with each update, thank you very much, really appreciated. Maybe one day I will be able to buy a machine that will allow me to see things in all their glory, both stock effects and mods. Take care and be safe. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
