    Old school sim guy. Started on board games in the '70's with the likes of AH's Luftwaffe, 1776, Squad Leader, Flight Leader, etc., etc. Still play some of them. Also have always enjoyed model building, both plastic and wood (boats and ships) and needless to say am an aviation sim fanatic. First flight sim was for my 150MB HD on my Macintosh called Fly!. It had a rogue grayed out 737 that would sporadically land any which way it desired and defy the laws of physics...and that was it for other air traffic at the time! Later I graduated to a PC and played F/A-18 Hornet and thought that was the “cats meow”.

    Enjoy aviation immensely. Worked as line supervisor for refueling ops. If anything has to do with flying, count me in. Also worked for a while on restoring a C-47 that flew the D-Day invasion before the owner decided to sell it and it went back across the big pond.

    So to sum it up if anyone is in the Rochestet, MN and would like to share the common interest in aviation or better yet flies recreationally just send a message! I’d also like to hear from anyone who knows of any aviation volunteer work here in southeast MN too. Seems everything is based out of the Twin Cities in so far as aviation volunteering goes.

  1. It’s like Christmas that keeps on giving. And “hip hip hooray” for the news on Flying Circus! I’m still holding out hope for that E.III. I miss those days of throttle blipping and yeah I know I’ve still got ROF but now I’m spoiled with the updated graphics and VR.
  2. So we get this dynamic visual damage AND your working on improving yet even further the physical damage to systems as well? Do these guys ever sleep??? I would have LOVED to have been in the room when that moment of inspiration hit. How cool that must have been!
  3. Have done searches under various wordings and still nothing. Can someone please direct me to the source of uploading mods to the forums here? Need to know things such as do files need to be zipped, how to provide download link(s), etc.essentially the do’s and don’ts for uploading. I have a mod I developed for myself but thought maybe the community might benefit from it as well. I thank you in advance!
  4. Seems like I'm going to have to experiment with these packs! And that's a good thing though. So am I correct when say to choose one pack or the other then (CloudsVR versus CloudsVR greysky)? And thanks for the super fast reply. Wish the government was just as efficient as you are.
  5. First, kudos! My hat is off to you sir! Just to be clear, I have a 42” 4K monitor and the G2 for VR. 90% of the time I’m flying in VR mode, but for the other 10% of the time when using the JSGME mod installer I’m guessing I need to use JSGME before I run the game to uninstall the VR clouds and then install the 2D desktop clouds if I’m planning to fly in 2D and NOT in VR, correct? And this would be the same when switching from 2D to flying in VR - 2D cloud types need to be uninstalled within the mod enabler and then VR cloud sets need to be activated, correct?*
  6. The United Nations. Huh. Aren’t those the guys who paint their “fighting vehicles” all white?
  7. No FC2 news? Most likely everyone is concentrating on Normandy for now I suppose.
  8. I never realized the extent to which they were produced until I found this article with the V-1 map locations. I always just assumed that rockets launched by the Germans during the later years were relatively rare and few and far between, but visually I think their detective work into exact locations shows otherwise! Seems V-1’s in reality were more of a physiological weapon versus actual damage inflicted with what little reading I’ve done.
  9. What a life he had. A Typhoon legend let alone great film credits later in civilian life. No doubt if he had ever been captured by the Germans he would have been executed given his German roots. Amazing.
  10. Just as the OP stated...V-1 sorties, hands down. In VR and with the new G2 no less this will be phenomenal, let alone require massive amounts of concentration. Just visually finding one will be interesting in its implementation. I mean, did these things leave a visual signature and if so how long was it, if any? An interesting current day read here regarding the V-1 recoveries. The map is from the same article. Amazing how many made it across the channel showing just how many actually were produced. https://www.airspacemag.com/history-of-flight/big-dig-buzz-bom
  11. Perhaps in FC3 as they are going to bring into FC planes that were in RoF.
  12. This has happened twice now. Launch IL2 and am in VR with the G2. Finally I get my mouse to be recognized (this problem occurs constantly with the G2) and begin flying a Quick Combat mission. If I pause the sim and come back later everything has shut down! I mean the game, WMR, everything. It’s right back to my desktop. On both occasions I was away for perhaps 10-20 minutes each time.I’ve looked, but to no avail. Is there a setting in WMR somewheres where it has an automatic shutdown feature or something after a certain amount of time? Very annoying. Never had any of th
  13. I’m having this same problem. Mouse is not recognized when entering IL2 in VR. Didn’t have this problem with RiftS so is this saying it’s a WMR or Steam VR software issue? I miss not being able to run OpenComposite now with the G2. Sure somebody comes up with a proper fix for this as the Rift S now has me spoiled.
  14. Now THAT also looks like a very interesting and cool museum to visit! What a neat display. The ones in the background look intriguing as well.
