  1. I’ll tell ya one thing, you did your homework here. Nice call! But if I were a betting man, I’d fold on this one. I’m totally clueless, especially after I blew the last round of guessing what his Morris code hint meant.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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?*
  5. The United Nations. Huh. Aren’t those the guys who paint their “fighting vehicles” all white?
  6. No FC2 news? Most likely everyone is concentrating on Normandy for now I suppose.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Perhaps in FC3 as they are going to bring into FC planes that were in RoF.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Welcome to the addiction of VR in theses battle series! I’ve got the Rift S and LOVE the inside out tracking. It’s so much more natural to look around with rather than using your thumb on a hat switch. That all being said as your are more than likely to be aware of don’t forget (at least in the P-38) that the mirror has to be at its highest setting (“complex” if I recall correctly) in order to also use you nacelle “mirror” (more of a highly polished surface) to verify if your gear is down. I had mine set to one notch below on the mirror setting and was never able to verify its nose ge
  15. Interestingly enough, I don’t think I’ve ever played another position other than pilot in ANY of the products, RoF, FC, GB series! I dunno, never crossed my mind to I guess. For those that have how do you rate it as compared to pilot duties? Can one actually have a career but be the entire time in a gunner position? I have read that hitting an aircraft that’s moving along with your own plane that is moving is pretty tricky especially depending on the angle of the attacking plane (lots of lead in some cases).
  16. CFS3...what memories - and a whopping disappointment after modding out and playing countless hours in CFS2. Ah yes, but I’m here to say man oh man, to experience this stuff in VR - wow. VR is a big pull for me now, most likely even more so with the G2 on its way in January (for me, anyways...I held off until the reviews started coming in) as we are always looking towards the latest and greatest tech-wise. Never played WoFF but just like RoF I can see a definitely see nostalgia in stuff despite high tech. It holds its own. I don’t know the magic the dev teams put into VR
  17. “Lands fine”? Geeeeez...I don’t know if I ever succeeded in getting that big monster off the ground, let alone land it! Now you’ve got me thinking, so I’m gonna go fire up ROF this afternoon. It’s been a long time since I’ve done that. Almost feel guilty really.
  18. I think the two biggest things for me to look forward to is... One of course, the decision to continue with the series and the other as posted earlier in this thread which I originally missed...
  19. I’ve got a water cooled i75930K with a 1080ti though yeah, this coming year I’m going to build a new rig. This one I’m using is definitely holding her own but CPU is showing her age some as I built it 6 years ago. How times flies, pun intended.
  20. I indeed do like the Pfalz. Used it quite a bit in ROF.
  21. So as mentioned already if indeed the logo for FC2 stands as a clue as to the next planes to be released, it shows three. So does this mean the Gotha for the other heavy or...? We aren’t sure even if this is meant to show what will be released in fact and may be just representative silhouettes and not actually what will be developed for FC2 by the dev team. Jason’s known by us now to through a few curve balls during hinting at such things and dropping clues. The Morris code threw me off last time as I would have lost money on a bet that it was going to be a surprise announcement for t
  22. And seeing one of those behemoths in VR would be way past the cool factor!
  23. I don’t know about you guys and girls but for me it takes a lot more effort to get hits on those wood and wired crates than flying a WW2 machine, let alone take one down. I’m sooo looking forward to this coming expansion as each era of aviation comes with its own set of unique circumstances to overcome. With the WWI machines it seems quite a bit of my time in a fur-ball is just trying to avoid stalling the damn plane. I think Patrick Wilson and myself would compliment each other perfectly in such a situation as just when you think you’ve seen a dumb maneuver - I’d always be there t
  24. Yup, I had the same issue way back when and realized “allow spectators” was not checked.
