    Online DMs since 3.008

    Old DM (exploding aircraft, fires, wings falling off etc) eye candy for gamers... New DM (more realistic) for simmers..... It may need a tweak here or there (30mm) but seriously, i don't see a problem, its the same for everyone!!

    Can a K4 fly slow enough to shoot at a U2 without stalling?? lol

    Historical planeset for TAW

    Blimey, the question was Yes or No, do you want it 'based' on Historical campaigns and planeset. Quite clearly they can only 'base' it on the planes available in the game. And if people are moaning about only having transports left, i guess what they are saying is 'look after your virtual pilot' (not always easy with ground pounders i know) The campaigns can be evened up through game play, as opposed to plane set. There are lots of different ways to do it, lets see what LG comes up with! Looking forward to the next one already.........

    Tactical Air War

    It is true, i have been a victim (as have many) But friendly fire was quite common in WW2, so i see it as adding to the realism!! Now if you're sat on a runway spraying friendlies as they spawn, that's a different matter. As for the leaving time, it should be extended to 30 or even 45 seconds, 15 is way to short (IMO!)

    Which DM do you like more - before 3.008 or after?

    Well for me this sim is way above anything else available, Latest DM not 'realistic' enough, it never will be..... its a game. Nobody has ever said this is the last update, and Jason and the 777 guys will keep striving to get as close to the real thing as they possible can given the restraints of the game. I know there are a lot of passionate simmers out there, i'm one of them, and so is Jason (or he wouldn't bother to reply) So keep up the good work.
  10. I first mentioned this over 5 years ago............... How time flies! (excuse the pun!) And it was mentioned again (by Tripwire), this time to Jason over 2 years ago. Not really sure what the opposition is to it, its just an option to turn it on or off! Something like this would be nice... The headzoom is a personal hate of mine, that would just be a just a bonus. Would be great to get rid of the compass and the ' *** has joined the server' '*** has fired on a friendly' messages as well! Would it really be that hard to add this, it can't be as hard as developing a plane surely, and that doesn't take years!! Fingers crossed, one day........

    Tactical Air War

    If by 'fly smart' you mean flying straight into teeth of the enemy hoping to take down as many as possible before you are killed, then no, i agree. But if you mean, fly transports away from the front line, bomber flights taking alternative routes to avoid being found (or just over the front line in case you are hit and have to bail), or maybe CAP a depot in the rear until others join....... Now that's flying smart. You don't always have to attack to win, you can also strengthen your defense so you don't lose..

    Tactical Air War

    Excactly......... There always seems to be people who want to complain without attempting to give solutions. And those that do offer solutions are immediately attacked. I've made a few suggestions, which i hope could be trialed to see how they work, as opposed to implemented in the whole campaign (in case they dont!!) I believe they would help with number imbalance (both ways), reduce the effectiveness of bombers and para drops (without the need to cap the numbers, or nobble the planes), assisting the loosing side (making it worth while joining even when out numbered heavily) They would encourage better game play and reward those who do. They would even allow introduction of the U2 in a meaningful role! And above all................ help to bring back the 'charm' Have a Great Christmas.

    The balance issue can be tackled through adjusting the game play, not by allowing people one life per flight! And yes you can ask, and i do understand the effect, very little on those people who look after their virtual pilot, and fly in a smarter manner. Whilst at the same time reducing the number of suicide jocks, and freeing up spaces when the server is rammed to capacity!
