  1. Italy seems like a natural segue if the tech isn't ready for the PTO yet. Larger warships, plenty of new aircraft (Do217, Me410, Mosquito, B-26), and plenty of opportunities for naval attacks. Plus, maybe we could even get our hands on this bird...
  2. With regard to the new engine start-up procedure, the following quote seems apt: "You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time." Personally, I will never understand why people complain about having more options.
  3. It's harder than it looks! On a related topic, the SE5a was doing a split s when I managed to get a lucky cannon shot on its tail. I can't say I've seen that from the AI before.
  4. The 262 is flat-out fun to fly! Take-offs and landings are a new challenge, granted, but swooping through the hills on the Kuban map at high speed is a blast. Great work, devs!
  5. I’m about to hop across the pond for a week among the Belgae, so naturally the update will likely be released the minute that I leave home. in which case pilots, prepare for an update in a few hours!
  6. “Cry havoc and let the maple syrup slowly flow!” "Eh, cry havoc and let loose the moose of war, dontcha know!"
  7. It has been a brutal week (and it is only Tuesday!), but this DD definitely cheered me up. Thanks, devs!
  8. Those images of the P-38 and B-25 just made me flashback to my childhood experiences building warbird models. Phenomenal work as usual!
  9. Chris Farley never died, he faked his death and moved to Russia!
  10. If anyone could pull off an Ace in a Flight while hanging from a parachute, it'd be Scharfi! Each reindeer counts as a separate AK, right?
  11. Someone might want to tell the pilots of the U.S. 7th Air Force in the Pacific that. AF sniping, intentional rammings, and suicidal airlandings on U.S. runways by the Japanese were a fact of life. Hopefully that doesn't mean that TAW is going to allow those practices just because they happened in real life.
  12. I'm aware of what he was doing. It was extremely poor form...but also in compliance with the existing ruleset. That ruleset needs to be changed to ban non-flying spawn camping ASAP, of course, but that is different from banning a player who respected the current ruleset (if not in spirit).
  13. I'm not sure that it is a good idea to ban players for behavior that isn't explicitly against the rules. xjammer didn't exactly invent the practice of "spawn camping" in MP games, after all. By all means ban the practice (I can only imagine how infuriating it must have been for the affected players), but banning players for unsportsmanlike yet legal conduct would quickly winnow the ranks on both sides.
  14. Budweiser at an English pub? I'm horrified (and I've lived in Missouri!). in all seriousness, though, neat to see this happen.
  15. I don't know that I will ever fly it, but the U-2VS is a Day 1 purchase for me just so that I can support this 3rd-party developer model. Imagine all of the esoteric planes that we will be able to fly in BoX if this model works out!
