  1. Woohoo! I'd pop a bottle of Champagne if I still had the money I spent on IL-2 modules
  2. Wow, the new map looks stunning. I can see myself spending hours just doing an aerial tour of the whole thing. Also that Flakvierling is going to give me nightmares.
  3. We're so close! Look forward to going for a whirl in these machines, hopefully in some cooler weather - my PC got so hot sometimes this summer it sounded like an Me-262 was taking off right beside me.
  4. I have no doubt we'll get a skin for the 'Grand Charles' seeing as we already have Clostermann's spit. If not then I look forward to the amazing job the skin-making community will do with it.
  5. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fclioqmtqnc2tij/Sherman III Anzio 44.dds?dl=0 This is my first skin attempt so feedback is welcome and encouraged.
  6. I like the idea of uploading your own picture for the Career Mode purely because the avatar generating system it has now is horrific and most of the pilot portraits it generates look very odd and mismatched.
  7. I would love to be able to fly evacuation missions. Perhaps even a random chance for enemy AI to ignore you if you have the Red Cross on your plane?
  8. In regards to the enemy AI seeming rather stupid, I think the career mode generates enemy (and friendly) pilots with varying AI difficulties in order to simulate a realistic ratio of new pilots to veterans. So the majority of the pilots will be in the easy to normal range, fairly incompetent and easy to shoot down. Then you will sometimes run into veterans with a higher skill level that represent more experienced pilots who know their kite inside-out and pose a real threat. The only problem is that even the higher-level AI in Il-2 leaves much to be desired, otherwise it would be a very good simulation of WW2 aerial warfare.
  9. Essex is my home and has been nearly all my life, though I've just finished three years of university in Bristol.
  10. I think we're beginning to forget that this is a flight sim we're talking about. Tank Crew is somewhat of an experiment for the developers but I can't see them going as far as playable infantry and other light vehicles. They have no experience in the mil sim genre (I assume) and trying to implement full-scale combined arms gameplay while maintaining Il-2's level of realism and detail just couldn't be possible.
  11. Cheers, Raptor, marvelous work as always!
  12. I have a Havoc request, if you're interested.
  13. Seconded. I seem to remember someone doing a really good Enemy Ace 109 F-4 and I'd love to zoom around in a bright red 262.
  14. That's an impressive list of Tank Crew improvements, it will feel much more like a simulation now with all those damage types.
