  1. Yep ready for this...ive just watched the Cold Blue on you tube and currently reading The big week by James Holland
  2. The severn pillars of wisdom by T E Lawrence is a fantastic book, for anyone who studies the middle east or (like me) works out there its a must read, not much has changed other than Mobile phones and the internet. the underlying tribal element is as strong as ever
  3. stopping the misses from trying to talk to you.....climbing out after take off,flaps gear, up trim......."take that stupid thing of your head and go to Tesco for some bread!"
  4. In all honesty, if you afford to take the plunge into VR the FC is pretty amazing...looking over the side of your aircraft and feeling like your a 2000ft is incredable, it also gives you amazing insight as to just how it was to fly these things (as far as can be possible ATM) Single player with PWCG is also fantastic (please donate if you use)
  5. When it comes to human nature, we can do some pretty random stuff to each other. to argue that he would or wouldnt do that doesnt make any sense. My experiance as a medic in recent conflicts, is that when the brown stuff hits the fan..logic and reason (with regards casualties) goes out of the window. If there is one thing ive learnt is that Humans are predictibly un-predictable
  6. Thanks Finkeren, that's what I love about this Forum, you learn something everyday
  7. My issue with the film is (and this is not a racist statement, just a statement of fact) is that running through the trenches there seemed to be a few people of colour sitting around, im sure that want the case in the lads battalions during that period (though happy to be corrected)
  8. Wow that's a blast from the past..one of my favorite games ever......VR support Pretty please
  9. Anything by James Holland....War in the West series vol 1.2 Burma 44, Normandy 44 and yet to read the Big Week. also Boyd (as in Major John) is an unmissable read for any aviation nut, icouldnt put in down and was depressing to finnish it...so read it again
  10. Stuttttterrrrrrring seems to have stoped in SP..though i only play with PWCG. seems crazy but my performance only improves when I turn graphic options UP? I play VR only, Rift S on a MSI Laptop GT75(?) with 1070 graphics card. i get steady 40FPS with EVERYTHING set to MAX...40FPS seems fine to me, never hit 90 but dont really feel the need to IMHO
  11. I only fly offline to be honest, however lije yourself i tweaked the graphics a little and pretty much cured it. seems like its back to the drawing board. i spend more time tweaking than i do flying these days
  12. I somehow sorted the stuttering but new patch today.....back worse than ever.
  13. if anybody wants an Originaly desinged IRVIN flying jacket, this is the place to go...100% aunthentic design and weigh a tonne...amazingly warm though https://www.flying-jacket.com/
  14. might bea shot in the dark here but try turning up your settings as apposed to lowering them. i run Rift s on a MSI 1070 carded laptop on ultra with most other options turn to high. the lower my sttings the worse the performance. i keep a constant 35-40 on PWCG and it look smooth as silk to me
  15. just carry on doing what you do Pat..i for one are happy to play with things just the way they are, any improvements are welcome but just do them in your own good time, but this campaign generator just goes from strength to strength
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Zzzzzzzzzzz........ you should have spent your $70 on tissues. dry your eyes😂
  20. 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
  21. 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
