  1. I'm just about to start the 1/24 bubble canopy typhoon. I find that modelling is a great extension to our sim flying. building a model and then being able to fly the exact bird (even more so in VR..build a spitfire etc then fly it..amazing) is something I could have only dreamed of as a boy. I encourage anyone who has yet to have a go at modelling to give it a bash, nothing big or fancy just build something you love. for those with kids its a great bonding experience on cold wet rainy days.
  2. i asked tbe very wuestion on the youtube channel yesterday after watching the new desert spitfire video. the devs xame straight back to say its no1 priorty after 5.0 release
  3. hi jason, ive just come across this post. i own a copy of a pilots map circa 1943 i think, that has hand drawn locations of all A and B airfields marked on it. i dont know if its of any use to you but the map was marked up by a pilot of the day. let me know if i can help. im over in iraq until next week but should you need the original copy im more than happy to post it to you To help out with airfield placement
  4. Zzzzzzzzzzz........ you should have spent your $70 on tissues. dry your eyes😂
  5. Lol thanks Pat, took off on a mission yesterday on Moscow map and was doing really well navigating at night until I checked the map in VR....when I looked back. I’m lost . Thanks for a fantastic program
  6. Pat, quick question. Regarding the spy pick up flights with auntie ju, do you have to land to complete the mission or drop the parachutist? Thanks also for this, makes a nice change from all the death and destruction
  7. Maybe there are more aces hanging around in kuban? Have you tried turning the chance of meeting ace down?
  8. +1 Pat, although BOX had many different modes, I’ve never played anything other than your campaign generator. Amazing work
  9. This may not make any sense but I’m playing BOX on a MSI gt72vr system, not the best but not the worst laptop. I was pulling my hair out a little with stutters and alike until I hit on this setup. Ultra settings 1.7 in occulas tray tool No shadows Normal draw distance No mirrors Ssa and hdr on 4 x aa Grass normal And target FPS 50 The result 45fps steady no matter what, stuttering gone smooth as silkish. Ok it’s not 90 but tbh I don’t even notice.....looks amazing and flys well Ohhhh and btw that’s with a rift setup x 2 sensors.... can’t go back to flat screen
  10. I’m quite lucky that my flight skills are so bad that the AI is more than a match, sometimes being bad is good

    Do you use VR?

    If you have never tried VR you just won’t get it! You really get a sense of what it must have been like to fly these planes. Forget the loss of clarity....it’s not even that bad in all honestly. The total immersion in my honest opinion negates any other argument against
  12. Hi tapi, if you use tacview, it will give you all the info you need
