  1. I don't care whether it's a collector's or regular as long as it's there.
  2. Just like G-4. But again, I'm totally ok with that.
  3. We have similar Bf-109s (which is perfectly fine by me, hopefully we'll get even more), so let's have several Yak-9 variants as well. And Yak-3 of course!
  4. I thought that it's a release build at the show. If it's still a WIP beta, I'm fine with the wait then. Better to wait a bit more and have a better polished version.
  5. Meetoo lol. I mean, you already have a working build, why don't just release it in the middle of the week so that people who've shown their commitment (bought the game) enjoy it first? Oh, it's not going to be worldwide premiere anymore? Well, showing it off in front of bunch of people most part of whom are seeing the game for the first time is more important, as I can see. I guess those folks deserve it better than the old fans..
  6. And there's another one - Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum located in Everett, about an hour or less away from Boeing Museum of Flight. I definitely recommend to check that one out when one has a chance. Most of the stuff there actually flies and drives. When I visited it in March, every aircraft had couple of buckets and pieces of cardboard underneath it to catch the leaks.
  7. Some engines sound quite good in the game, like DBs, others are terrible, like Klimovs M-105s. Those should be among the first ones to be updated. As for the gun sounds, they're lacking a punch, imho. Here's DSHK for example: It uses the same ammo as UBs and BS, but compare how those sound in the game - it's like a bunch of bolts and nuts rattling inside a tin can. Some guns are better than the others, but overall, they all need improvement, away from being too cartoonish. Now for everyone that would say that in cockpit it should be quiet and different, how about when an aircraft is stationary on the ground with engine off with external view close up?
  8. Rest in peace. My condolences to family and friends..
  9. Most likely, fingers crossed.
  10. I've never been a car guy, except the time when I was about 10 years old, when I fancied Lambos, Ferraris and Porsches, well, like most kids at that time. Later on, I had little interest in cars. When I was 18, and got my first car, I still wasn't a fan of fast cars. But then my friend showed me this: And since then, I'm a big fan of Japanese sports cars, drifting, time attack and rally. Watched tons of Best Motoring, Hot Version, etc videos. Gran Turismo 5 is my first racing sim that I played heavily with my Logitech Driving Force GT. Several years later, when I got my current PC I spent a crazy amount of money on Thrustmaster's T300rs Wheel, T3PA-Pro Pedals and TH8A Shifter and started playing Assetto Corsa and Project Cars 2. The games are awesome, but I was disappointed with my setup. Not the cheapest ones but didn't feel like much of an improvement compared to the good old Driving Force GT. Even with 3-pedals with an H-pattern shifter it still not even close to the real thing. So I sold everything. Maybe crazy Fanatec stuff is somewhat close to the real car feel, but I ain't gonna spend several grand on a rig, when I could buy used NA Miata for that money and take it to a race track. Waay better than any racing sim. I came to a conclusion that a simple FFB wheel with a sequential shifter will be more than enough for racing sims, unlike the flight sims, where the top notch stuff like Baur's or Virpil or VKB really makes a difference. I got Thustmaster T150. The only thing is, I would still need a shifter, since those paddle shifters are no good. And it seems like TH8A is the only option here. So I'll have to buy one again. But the first thing I'm going to do with it is a conversion to a sequential shifter. That should be well enough for the racing games. For more advanced feeling I've got a real car, but that's a different story. I miss GT5 and it's thousands of JDM cars that you won't find in other sims, so I might end up getting a PS3 again along with GT6 dvd, since it's an improved version of GT5. It's kind of 1946 for the flight sims. Not interested in GT Sport, since it doesn't have all those cars from the previous ones. So yeah, first things first I need that shifter again so I could fully enjoy AC, Project Cars2, Dirt1/4/2.0, GT6 and maybe Forza 7. Dang it, that's a lot of stuff. At least, I'll have stuff to do when I occasionally have a break from Great Battles, lol.
  11. So, from the day of the last DD, is it 2 weeks or 3 weeks? What do you guys think? 😀
  12. So, what do you guys think, is it going to be an update or a DD?
  13. Rare historical photo of Hurricane pilot trying to capture Me-262 in flight by spray painting red stars over Luftwaffe markings

    DCS news

    I like the promo video, where I-16s are fighting with 109 K4s😃
  15. I have no problem with rifle caliber MGs in the game. Their damage is quite accurate. I even manage to shoot down couple of IL-2s with just 7.92mm once in a while.

    Game NEWS

    I'm not playing that kind of micro transaction crap games so nothing to worry about, at least for me.
  17. Could you please elaborate on that? Is VP's FM that different from the one in BAT? I did notice some difference between 4.12 and 4.13 FMs.
  18. Basically it's a huge compilation of various mods from Aviaskins, SAS and Patrulla Azul that are adapted for 4.13.4 version (currently) plus modified DGen generator that's being developed by Asura himself. It's pretty much similar to DCG and there are a lot of campaigns made for it on Mission4today. The pack also comes with various DGen campaigns that are made by Motörhead. Currently it has complete Pacific campaigns set for USAAF, USN and USMC as well as for IJN and IJA. He's also working on Battle of France (almost finished), War over Europe(Currently has BoF, BoB till 42 Channel episodes), Mediterranean, Battle of Moscow, Arctic Circle, etc. There are a lot of cool stuff.
  19. That's for sure. I keep 4.14 so that I'll install DGen Pack 3.0 on top of it when it comes out.
  20. 'cause of DGen 3.0. It has 2 interesting scripted campaigns added. Also, some planes got updated 3d models starting from 4.13. I have several installations with different versions and I enjoy them all.
  21. There are a lot of dynamic campaigns that come with Asura's Dgen Pack for 4.13.4 You can get it from aviaskins: http://forum.aviaskins.com/showthread.php?t=4386 For example, here are the Pacific campaigns from this Dgen Pack. They are awesome! https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,41494.0.html I had Dgen Pack 2.1, but I've deleted it, since there's Dgen Pack 3.0 coming for 4.14 game version.
  22. Wow, I've got my 5 min of fun in this game. Had a kill streak of like 4-5 kills.
  23. And German cannon tracers were blue? I guess I'll install that tracer mod then.
  24. But was it realistic? Do we have documentation on tracer colors used in various guns?
  25. Does it mean we will be able to fly them only on the maps they are designed for?
