  1. As far as a release goes, we know the first chance for people outside of the team to play will be early May in Australia as the sim is to be shown there at a major sim show/airshow so I think it fair to say we are nearly there after all these years. Still waiting patiently and getting even older. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  2. Great to see some new vehicles are to be added, especially as they are the type that will be around the airfields as players come and go from it. The new pilot looks great, not something we see much of but nice to know most of the existing content at some stage is getting updated, along with damage and AI changes these bode well going forward with the series. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  3. The Ju-88 was always a great aircraft, now it looks particularly menacing with that nose full of guns, also gives it a nicer look as well. I'll give it a wide berth if I meet it in the sky. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  4. The whole point of buying into pre-order is that you as a player are able to follow development as it happens and if you want also help with feedback that further enhances the sim, you are also able to use those items of a new module as they are released over what is essentially is a two year development period. If you do not find that interesting or beneficial in any way then buying the game at full price or with a considerable discount in subsequent sales following release is the way to go, if you have followed the series from its inception that was always the way, no one is misled or cheated in any way as we all have that choice, however, many feel they would rather pay up front to help fund the process and hopefully keep the series going. The game overall is really cheap I think, too much so when you consider the full package that is provided, however, if price really is a concern then the team do offer up many incentives to buy in for those less able financially, however, like all things in life it has to be funded to survive and you will have to wait a while for the very latest titles, nothing wrong there. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  5. Not volunteering myself, just wanted to say those films are excellent work, congratulations to all involved. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  6. Not been on the North End now for around twelve years, used to love it, football and Northern Soul my youthful sins. The ground at Deepdale has seen many changes over the years and has a huge history of sending players on into the higher leagues, surprising wherever you go in the country someone has a tale to tell, I am sure your Great Uncle had a few from those days with Tom. Take care. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  7. Great to see you guys continue to improve all aspects of the series over time, thank you very much, really appreciated. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  8. Looks really good, don't peek over the wall guys Germans about. Nice to finally see desert paint on the vehicles. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  9. I long for the desert, to follow the path of my forefathers, to again experience the light and sounds of that environment like never before. Oh yes, great film, I love these glimpses into the future. Love the Wellington take of scene as well, good to see it not used as target practice for once. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  10. Always have liked the He111, it has one of those unique looks about it and in this sim it has certainly been modelled superbly, not sure I will be taking it out with torpedoes, however, good that it and other types are to be fitted with them. Never have particularly liked the control column on the German bombers such as this, seems odd to me, almost fragile like it is about to break, maybe just me I do not know. Anyway, still looking forward to the release. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  11. My thoughts and votes. 1. Kuban because it offers the most varied scenery of the GB series and so can/has been utilised for many varied missions from the community. 2. Has to be IL-2 1946 modded because of the absolute versatility, not only can I play if I want to anywhere in the world but I can also add actual content in the form of aircraft, buildings and other objects I have made myself as well as from other community members. 3. This was the most difficult, I went for the Hurricane because it is my all time favourite aircraft, however, I cannot imagine not having the Ju-52 and U-2VS in my collection but had to pick one so there it is. Take care. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  12. Of course, Shamrock is their PR Guru. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  13. New textures look superb, the changes make things easier on the eye as they break up the overall Green and there also seems to be a certain graininess there I quite like, very effective. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  14. Excellent news, good to know you guys are still hard at work on the project, it would be great if you could share some updated images with us instead of it all having to be top secret. I managed to fly a Brewster mission last night in B.A.T, a updated version of the old game, just keeping my hand in and living in hope for the Finnish theater in this series. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  15. Excellent work as always guys, thank you very much to all involved, Yak is a beauty, not in the same way the Hurricane is but there you go. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  16. They cannot really be classed as non combat as such, most were armed with guns and bombs, all certainly would bring many needed and varied roles into the sim and I would buy them, I actually made the Lysander for IL-2 1946 so it is top of my wish list as is Fw-189, but yes all of them The difficulty is getting Jason to actually invest in the more obscure, to him and all those fighter jockeys at least, and take a risk with these types, reading between the lines I am not sure the experiment with third party companies was as successful as was hoped so it might be once bitten twice shy now. Anyway, do not hold your breath, we still need the career fleshing out for the Ju-52 and U-2, how long have we had them now? Roles you would think could/should be added such as recon and arty spotting for the U-2 are something else badly needed as are medevac for it and the Ju-52, even with the aircraft models made elsewhere there remains work to be done for the team integrating them properly. Anyway, live in hope, we never know what is around the next corner. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  17. That is a superb feature, is it new or was it always there? Another question is does the prop remain rotating as long as the object is there or is it on a timer that turns it off as say a mission progresses? I have always been a big fan of the mission builder as it provides such a variety of wonderful objects that can create such impressive environments to really bring any campaign/mission to life and add such immersion for the player, anything that further builds on that has to be very welcome, great work guys. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  18. Some lovely shots there Pattle of as you mention probably one of most anticipated aircraft of the release, looking forward to seeing it in the flesh so to speak. The ground shots have me puzzled, the engine is running and cover missing with objects close to the aircraft, is that piloted, static or some fancy Photoshop wizardry? Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  19. Awesome, that is one excellent diorama. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  20. Okay guys, that is great news, thank you very much for the confirmation, really appreciated. Take care. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  21. There are so many liveries for the Hurricane that once these guys start they will be unable to stop, there will be no time for anything else. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  22. Hello Pattle, I was under the impression that everything you guys listed as flyable for 5.0 would be done before it shipped, this has me worried as it is the first time any of you have actually said something might not be included in the release as far as I know, so will we definitely still get the flyable version irrespective of how well TF-5.0 actually sells, say as a patch? Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  23. Excellent work on the Hurricane guys, always was my favourite fighter aircraft and with so many variants has been flown in all kinds of missions in the old game so to have it here finally will be a real thrill to do all those things anew. Thank you very much for the update, really appreciated. Do not worry about the snow too much, I am sure you will all find a bar close by the office to get stranded in tonight, give a thought for poor Jason all on his own with all that sunshine. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  24. As did we all, it was a sad day when he went to do other things, thankfully we still have a dedicated team with a new man at the helm fighting our corner so there is a future in this genre and it should be able to carry on. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
  25. That is quite some list, very impressive, congratulations to all involved. To all intents and purposes that is the one I most want, and the map, could you explain that one please Pattle. Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
