  1. While I definitely appreciate them, I'm not usually one to get all that excited about graphical changes. But these are something else. Agree with others here about the new skin. I'm no connoisseur, but I can't imagine how it could look much more lifelike in terms of reflection & color shading. Bravo! The reflections are very cool too. Gotta be awesome in VR. You coding wizards are OK in my book.
  2. Well, with this Wuhan thing, at least I can postpone my fear of flying Endeavor for a little bit! I'm way late to see all this great news, so a belated but hearty congrats to you, Requiem!! Absolutely fantastic! Hope left seat's been great to you so far. Sadly, I expect you'll have a minimal schedule here soon - if you're not already there. I hear the airlines are cutting back pretty hard over fears for now. If there's a silver lining to that (besides more time at home), I guess it's more videos for those of us who look forward to them. Anyway we all hope this situation passes quickly. Meanwhile, hi to your better half from me, and I'll try to find you online or otherwise here soon, now that I'm finally starting to have some free time again here & there. Busdriver, thanks for keeping us up to date here!
  3. I think you may also have to crack the throttle a little. I usually give it 5-7% anyway, which always works for me, but I can't claim to be certain it's required. Definitely won't get anywhere without rich mixture as Legioneod said, though.
  4. Jaw-dropping generosity here, Doc - thanks for the gesture & the investment! Lots of comments in here about this being a unique community - agreed, and aren't we all glad?! Just seeing these giveaways encourages me & I'll bet that goes for most of us. So here's a challenge: if you're in other 'communities' out there that could use more of this sort of thing, be "that guy" who stepped out first & DID IT. Even if you have to skip a few meals or drinks to pay for it, you won't regret it. 😊 Congrats to the lucky January winners! Cheers & good luck to everybody else!!!
  5. Finally found time to buy this one today. Thoroughly enjoyed the interview, @ShamrockOneFive, thanks for that! @SYN_Haashashin, I was floored to learn how much time & dedication went into this effort. This is obviously a real labor of love for you, but that doesn't make you & those who helped one bit less deserving of our sincere appreciation. THANK YOU for this, to you and your 'team' - both your SYN 'consultant' brothers AND to everyone else who helped with those many details. Really looking forward to this one. And, equally glad to hear you intend to put focus on the WWI side next. That will surely provide a wonderful boost to Flying Circus as it expands. Cheers!
  6. Thanks again Jizzo! I should have checked with my squad mates first - naturally they had it already.
  7. Tip (or anyone else), would you kindly p.m. the briefing to me. Cleaned out my PMs yesterday so should not have a problem receiving them anymore. Thanks!
  8. Tip, I was surprised to learn that TWO fellow =FI= gents are interested in this Friday. Please put =FI=Genosse & =FI=Bluebell in those 2 Yaks. I will be there on "reserve" status, and will fill any seat if we have a no-show. Otherwise, I'll ask permission to fly as a gunner. Thanks! Edit: To clarify, I'll definitely be attending, and I'd like to be "in line" for any seats given up between now & Friday, or else I'll hope to grab one last minute if it comes to that.
  9. Thanks for the heads up on that, Tip. However, fortunately Jizzo was somehow able to PM the briefing to me, so I should be all set. This replacement pilot is now boarding the troop train to the front! 😉
  10. I think i'm going to be able to escape work early after all, and slide into an allied fighter, although perhaps a few minutes late. Tip, if you (or anyone else on the allied side) would forward the PM with the briefing & any links, I'd be most grateful! Hope to talk to you guys soon...
  11. You must be mostly settled in now. Glad you're back Tip, hope you're finding time now to start truly enjoying the new locale! Finally seeing light at the end of my tunnel too - work's about to finally lighten up a bit after the busiest couple of years I can recall. Looking forward to more flying time in my future (virtual for sure, and hopefully RL again also, before long). Put me down as 'reserve' for a Peshka, but I'm not at all picky & will take whatever's left if I'm able to join in.
  12. Very cool. Stories like his are gold. You're lucky to have the chance to hear them in person. When you guys finish up for the day, you ought to ask if you can record a story of 2 while you guys are relaxing with some cold ice tea, if he hasn't already done something like that. Several museums would love to have that video or audio. Either way, enjoy your time with him, and tell him thanks for what he went through, from another grateful citizen.
  13. I'm willing. Sign me up if you like, and feel free to use others instead, if they sound better. Originally from west Texas but I 'shaved down' my drawl during my years in the service (got tired of hearing "what?" every time I said something). I can bring it back a little to add some 'flavor' to this, if requested.
  14. Tip, I'm likely to be a late arrival this week, due to a charity golf tournament starting at 7 am, but should not be late by much. Please put me down for a Yak since those are short. However, if NN squad shows up with numbers & need my Yak to fly together, kindly give it to them & put me in whatever else is left (always happy to fly with 1.JaVA or the IL-2's). Thanks!
