  1. What? It bombed Pearl Harbot didn’t it?!?
  2. I like Midway as a title but could live with some variation of Pacific Carrier Battles.
  3. The 262 is the heavy lifting as far as AC go. It makes sense it was among the first started. That it’s coming out early means their research and development went well. The P-51 is due roughly in July. Not to worried about it overall. Typhoon was a research nightmare and I suspect the P-38 is pretty complex as well. Timelines, overall, seem reasonable. I’m hyped for the P-51 so I feel your pain, just not your angst. (That’s a stronger term than I’m looking for. I’ll amend it later.)
  4. Il2 is clearly a combat flight simulator. It simulates a great many things related to WWII air combat. It’s not a systems simulator if that’s what people are getting on about but it’s never pretended to be that either. Other sims model some things better, IL2 models other things better. For me and most on these forums IL2 BoX strikes a balance very well and plays the right chord. YMMV.
  5. I tried the slightly higher but didn’t like it in the long run. I too, however, shifted my head position to center of the AC and lean right to get behind the sight in all German AC. I use the TiR center button and no new center. I hate flying a virtual plane off center. It feels foreign to me.
  6. I don’t know where I read it but they are testing a new server or mission build. They said they will be back up “shortly” but did not provide a hard timeline. I thought that was in this thread but I can’t find it now.
  7. Yeah, we need a track for sure. You should not be missing an Il2 which fills your gunsight. Killing it can be difficult but hitting it in that scenario should not be. 0-50 should be hitting no matter what, 100-200 should be aiming a hair low but not much, 200-400 should be about dead on, 400-500 should be aiming a hair high. This is all assuming a straight and level target from dead six. Add any movement to either aircraft and you have to adjust point of aim for point of impact. In any type of low to moderate G maneuver the opponent will be below your nose. High G and it will be well below your nose. Practice with A-20's offline to get an idea of your aiming points. They tend to fly mostly level until engaged at close quarters.
  8. All I have left is a Khloe Kardashian. Can't seem to offload that one.
  9. Geoweb, Do you own one of the flight modules? Your bar(s) only indicate tank crew. Murf
  10. CLOSED: PHASE I HAS CONCLUDED Items will "ship" on Sunday Happy Spring Sale Giveaway, It's been quite a while since my last giveaway so it's time. I'm not flushed with cash or anything but I had some spare change and I decided to contribute to the community I enjoy so much. I looked at my founders badges and was self-shamed into making some purchases for myself and decided that wasn't good enough. I figure I run my mouth around here enough I should put my money behind my praise and critiques. Now, hold your horses fighter jocks! There are rules here and they are as follows: REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS POST ONLY. NO PM's - for transparency 1. First come, first serve – items will be distributed within 96 hours. This is longer than usual becuse there have been some problems with rules violations in the past. 2. ONE ITEM PER CUSTOMER – NO EXCEPTIONS 3. You must own the game to receive Aircraft. 4. You may not already own the aircraft you apply for. 5. Don’t ask for “a friend” See rule 1 6. You may not have received any give aways from me in the past (and yes I will check). 7. You should not have received any giveaways from others as this is intended to expand the player base (but I have no way of verifying that – be honorable.) 8. I expect you to activate them immediately and to actually use the items from the giveaway. FULL STOP: Read those rules in orange one more time before you apply. Items will be given away in two phases as I am waiting for some items to resolve through the purchase app and receiving the digital keys. Items available in PHASE ONE are as follows: 1. Fw 190 A3 Collector Plane 1. Yak 1b Collector Plane 1. Bf 109 G-6 Collector Plane 1. La5FN Collector Plane 1. Battle of Moscow - Premium Edition (I would prefer this is for someone who does not own the game yet.) PHASE TWO - TBD So, there it is. I do this for a number of reasons: Firstly to give back to a community which I enjoy flying with/against so much. Secondly to support Jason and the genre we love. I occasionally have the time, interest and finances to do these, though, I am not rolling in dough by any stretch of the imagination. I hope it goes a little ways to get to the Pacific and my favorite rides (PBY someday?) moving forward just that little bit more. And, frankly, it makes me feel good. Enjoy and good luck HerrMurf
  11. Other than the one on the side of the aircraft pictured, apparently! Heinz Bar’s Anton’s are my favorite Fw paint schemes. I’ve modeled a few in my day 1/48 and 1/32. Where ya been Hooves? Haven’t seen you round these here parts in an age!
  12. Confirm you did the box art for that game?
  14. It is surprisingly fast to use. They stopped issuing them before I served but I’ve used them for hiking/camping.
  15. Considering the broad spectrum of this audience, I'm willing to bet the joke is lost on many here.
  16. There are a couple of really good models on the market. One is RC capable.
  17. No, the two aircraft have very little in common other than some powerplants and general layout. Design time, research and testing would be the same as for any "from the ground up," new aircraft in the BoX series.
  18. New Midway movie out November 8th. A list actors but a sci-fi guy directing. The promo poster is depressingly bad. I think it’s an A6M-SBD with a four bladed prop.
  19. Best mid and low level single engine fighter. P-47 or P-51 probably hold enough advantages at higher altitudes to get the nod.
  20. Have you tried field testing your humor with our resident fifth dimensionalist?
