    Det's Hangar

    The liveries are here for anyone to download, thus it makes said aspect moot. I've already found not one, not two, not three, but four of my textures available via IL2 fan sites. Sites where the author is claimed to be someone other than myself, where the uploader has claimed authorship and where it is taken on word alone. Truth be told, I put an inordinate amount of time into these textures and to see them panned off to scabs and hacks irks me to no end. Please stop uploading my content to third-party sites. Jesus...

    where are the stock skins?

    You need to pull the DDS files into Photoshop.

    My PC continues to have issues. Sometimes it boots to Windows, other times it doesn't at all. It looks as if I have multiple failing hardware components that are an issue. Narrowing down the culprit remains an problem, however. PPR leaks point to several components but there is little I can do about it. Eventually it's all going to fail completely. Nothing I can do about it right now. It just seems to be a slow spiral down the hardware drawn as it were, and this is after spending almost $1200 on parts. If looks like I'm going to have to build a brand new PC from the ground up. I dread that. So, no future updates here until this is resolved. Sorry and all, but it is what it is. In fact, I'm amazed it booted to Windows and I was able to login at all.

    If you like salt you're eating Plastic

    Almost a 100% of the materials used in and to construct your home or apartment are made from petroleum or are used in the manufacturing process. Paint, lacquer, wiring, light bulbs, carpeting, tile or wood flooring, cement, bricks, etc etc. This doesn't even take into account the products found inside your residence that you use on a daily basis, including this PC I'm using right now. Exactly. For a nonrenewable resource we sure use it like we have an endless supply. Still, there are other concerns as well. I mean recent studies from NOAA, the DoE and various other GO's and NGO's have found that we will have depleted almost 50% of the Earth's human consumable resources including Rare Earth Minerals (they're used to manufacture electronics) by 2050. We're gonna have to produce more food in the next 50 years than in the past 8000. Climate change stabilization is a complete and utter pipe dream as we've already surpassed the PPM threshold for the point of no return. It took 30 years to kill half the worlds coral and the rest will be gone in the next 30 years. That's a biome that feeds half a billion people. Then there's the current fresh water crisis. The aquifers that took 10,000 to 20,000 years to fill up, we've depleted in less than a 100. But no, let's focus on pronoun usage and social justice issues. Those are the real concerns after all.

  6. Or tap water... https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2018/10/microplastics-found-90-percent-table-salt-sea-salt/?user.testname=photogallery:2 People have been viewing this as an issue of interpretation. I interpret it as eating plastic as a direct result of human environmental impact. You and I are still consuming a synthetic product that's a derivative of petroleum, and regardless of the amount consumed, it's probably a bad thing...

    World War 3

    It's out in EA on Steam. Observations thus far concerning the core aspects. The body armor system needs a complete revamp. Visually it's nothing spectacular and at times borders on the mediocre, IMHO. Objective spawns are terrible and typically result in your entire team being wiped out. Fluidity is haphazard which means your character can get stuck on things they shouldn't. The anims, both first person and character are very clunky and this in turn breaks immersion. The sound design is abysmal. It rekindles memories of playing the original CoD that was released back in 2003. There is no map server rotation. This means once a round is complete the game dumps you back to the main menu. Just thought I'd share for anyone that's considering picking it up.

    Unfortunately however, it's not possible as I held onto the DDS files and deleted the PSD. I could certainly go back and redo Y14 from scratch on the 4K template but the my custom weathering still needs a lot of work, which is why I'm hesitant about it.

    Found on my external. These were versions I created with the 2K template prior to working with Rafi on what would become the 4K version, and I simply forgot about them. All three are historical and existed between 44-45 in Germany and during the evac from Czechoslovakia.

    DCS news

    Polychop is hit and miss at best. They should fix what they've already sold. They provided CAS to us on numerous occasions, so I have a special place in my heart for that bird and the crews that drive them.

    Developer Diary 206 - Discussion

    I stand corrected. Right on, mate!

    DCS news

    Yeah, I had fun in the F-5, A-10, the Harrier, but everything is a combination and slew of automation and fire-and-forget systems. Nothing seems all that challenging anymore and the WWII component is a complete and utter fail, one that's likely to continue in said direction unfortunately. I just want a Kiowa. And don't give me that nonsense about classified systems and components. The latest releases like the F/A-18C, AV-8B, and A-10C still, to this very day, have classified systems. That means the developers had to guess and create and make s@#t up to simulate said components, so that aspect is utterly moot. Kiowa!
