  1. It's evolution resulted in the Sea Fury and she is lovely indeed. I have yet to see one fly but am hoping to next year as I will be attending the Duxford show.
  2. Weird, I've been playing with the same 40-60 guys for almost five years now.................and that doesn't even count Coconuts Normal Server which has it's own following.
  3. Yes, we are all aware of your "there is only one way to play the game and anyone who doesn't play my way is terrible," position.
  4. My only complaint continues to be the survival rate of gunners. Landing multiple hits in the crew compartments of a Pe2 or Il2 often has little to no effect on gunners. In reality it was a very lethal position in any bomber and survival rates were very poor. In game it seems less so over many hundreds of "combat" hours. I don't really have any problems with their accuracy and use decent tactic to avoid their fire. Once in a while I get sloppy and pay the price but take responsibility for my own actions there.
  5. Bearcat was closer to a shipborne Fw-190 than an F6F if we’re doing comparo’s.
  6. Put the 51 B/C back in and I’ll vote for you
  7. Fair enough. Just wanted to paint a fuller picture as we address this approximately every ninety days (minutes?) in these forums.
  8. 90 percent true but one of the developers did say the B-17 was exponentially more complex to model than a single or twin engined aircraft. Building it would take the design cycles to complete a full set of fighters and is not worth it ecconomically. (Second sentence is paraphrased as I don't remember if this was printed or a live conversation I had with a member of the team.)
  9. If they do Korea there will be helicopters. Then they can go backwards or forwards to their hearts delight.....
  10. Glad you found a solution. I’ve found Milan to be very attentive to any issue that comes up. Glad to see he still values customer service as much as he has in the past.
  11. The initial ship pack will likely be limited to four or five classes of ships. I think Jason said that in a thread somewhere. One fleet carrier type for each side and an as yet undecided set of combat and support ships. Certainly not the plethora of Japanese carrier types at the outset.
  12. We always seem to get wound up about the ‘Midway’ title. They should just rename it Battle of the Pacific, Carrier Ops or Battle of the Early Pacific. It would tamp down 60% of the arguments about it. The map will not be Midway Island alone. That makes no sense whatsoever. This team has had a couple of hiccups in the early going but I don’t recall any WTF moments over the last two or three years. Have a little faith that when it is done, it will be done well. I have faith that it WILL be done at some point.
  13. The pic is not really a fair comparison. The position and angle are significantly different from a normal pilot's seated position, there is no hood installed, no gunsight, we already know refraction is not modelled, and cameras are not eyes and never will be. Even the improvement of the mod is minimal. Good work as it's something I can't do but this is not some monumental step forward and the stock cockpit is pretty amazing, overall, as it is.
  14. I think you are misquoting Jason. I agree the series is most likely moving to the Far East and probably some more western theater stuff as well. I’ve never heard him say anything resembling he’d “ had enough of” the Eastern Front. I am quite sure he would not alienate his crew or an entire community by saying such a thing.
  15. Was no one in this thread, unfortunately.....
  16. I told him to stop several times and tracked him for several minutes. I waited at least two minutes while he intentionally closed with my squadie (his intentions were clear and verified shortly thereafter) , I asked for a kick vote, and waited for him to fire. Then I cut his legs out from under him til he quit the server. I hate to be the bully but that behavior has no place in our community. I’m usually the guy who is there to help anyone on a server and forfeit my own mission to clear a teammates tail. I gave him MULTIPLE opportunities to discontinue TK’ing.
  17. Except in this case the team killer hunted my squadie back across friendly lines twice before sidling up behind him to start shooting. The second time it happened I rammed him to stop the TK attempt. It clearly wasn’t a case of mistaken identity or cutting across a possible kill by accident. One flight maybe. Two flights in a row, not a chance.
  18. When it’s difficult people complain. When it’s easier people complain. Imagine being a Dev trying to find the middle ground in all of these shenanigans!
  19. Ssssoooooo awesome. I’m about theee years out but I’m taking the dive after relocating. Allows the tech for both VR and motion to mature a bit and about the time I will be ready for a new computer as well. I watch with both amazement and anticipation!
  20. Support is just one or two guys - sometimes they are quick and sometimes less so. Have some patience for your own sanity if they lag a bit.
  21. At least some of that is attributable to angle. The game prop is set to flight. The original photo is set to full feathered. If you look at the blade on the far right, especially, it is nearly parallel to the ground/flat. Bit of an optical illusion in the original.
