  1. Salutations, Unfortunately, I can report the same thing but while testing missions offline. The game freezes and I get completely kicked out of the game and have to restart. This happened three times last week but not in the past few days. ๐Ÿ˜

    If you like salt you're eating Plastic

    Oh yea... some coffee does sound pretty good right now. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Wait... are polystyrene (foam) cups also deadly? If so I can't even drink my coffee. I have no regular mugs. Crap. To hell with it... we are all going to die eventually.

  5. Salutations, Why such quality and accurate vehicle models? They pride themselves on the craft and vehicles they create. The modelers take pleasure in their creative efforts. I find such detailed modeling praiseworthy even if I never actually see all said details while playing. It pleases and reassures me that the developers are giving us quality accurate models.
  6. Salutations, I have done a check of your train situation. Indeed... the westbound train form Stepnoya inexplicably slows down dramatically for a short time several times on its' way to Alexi and again as it continues on... once on a steep downward slope. The early stop at Alexi and none of the slowdowns are explainable. My check in the editor doesn't reveal anything that would or could cause this anomaly. Sorry. โ˜น๏ธ

    Salutations, As a side note.. I was checking out one of my tank missions recently and have notices that some of the trees now block tank fire. Not a complaint just an observation. They should block such fire.
  8. Salutations, Really? From what I have observed, you can't or won't use the tutorial already made available to you. What makes you think you would use another? Il2 is a work in progress. It is constantly growing and improving. Along with that growth and improvement comes changes... some fundamental that make old missions and ways of doing things obsolete. That is the price paid for progress in the growth of the simulation. You seem to want everything done for you without learning the basics yourself even with the aids currently available. You have disparaged a current mission building manual by saying it is out of date and doesn't work. I have proven you wrong. If others can use it and learn mission building basics with it, (me), so can you. I don't mean to be overly critical. I want to encourage you to learn how to build basic missions to your hearts content. I have gone out of my way as have others many times to help you.

    The Groups Sharing Corner

    Salutations, I have several versions I could post but Page 15 in the Mission Building Guide shows one step by step how to create a Soviet AAA Battery. You can learn to do them yourself and you might learn and understand some basics of mission building during the process.
  11. Salutations, I have been meaning to respond to your comments dog1 for some time. You are completely incorrect in regards to Pranksters' guide. If there are any problems they lie with you and not his manual. I just spent several hours working my way through Prankster's Mission Building Manual again. I created all of the groups entailed as instructed. Guess what? Everything worked as it should. Afterwards I saved the resultant mission as a Single Player with a Fw 190 set as the 'player' , used a different mission name and placed it in my missions folder. I started the game and guess what again? Just guess. Surprise, the mission ran just fine. How about that? As the manual states, the original tutorial missions templates are meant to be placed in the Multiplayer/Dogfight folder and they are set as a Deathmatch. That's why you can't load it from within the game as a normal SP mission. There are a few minor errors in this aged manual such a map coordinates from apparently an older map and a town name being different than listed in the manual, but despite its' age, the manual stands up pretty well. Thanks again Prankster for your Mission Building Manual. Get busy updating it. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I suspect the changes to the round dispersion my have a subtle effect on combat effectiveness.

    Do you truly expect respect in war from the enemy players? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Personally, I wouldn't strafe a plane I had downed. If the pilot(s) survives, good for him. I would want that opportunity also. I guess I do have some scruples.
