    Geology. Sexier than you might presume.
  1. Bodenplatte early access

    P-51's have been done to death, anyone wanna show the Dora some love? It's probably the plane I'm most looking forward to, and it's undoubtedly the best-looking (shuddup, you know I'm right). Not that I know too much about it, but it seems to me to be a very well balanced plane, and I can't wait to try it out.
  2. I have to concur with what others have said, the cloud-aliasing is much worse this update. It was never perfect, and I understand there are technological limitations, but this last update has made it significantly worse. Planes don't just look aliased, the look blocky, and lose their shape. It looks like a bug, until you realise it isn't. I don't like the dismissal of this issue as just "it was never perfect, nothing to be done". None of us here expects perfection, but just looking at pre-3.001 screenshots, videos etc., compared to now, there's a distinct loss of quality regarding planes in/around clouds. It's evident for everyone to see (I'm assuming that most people have this issue).
  3. Post Your Screenshots / Vids Here

    Approaching photorealism. And this isn't even on Ultra settings; I can't wait for my new card to arrive.
  4. Also happens with the La5FN in quick missions (although not as regularly as with the A20)
  5. I just bought a GTX 1060 for £180 ($290, lucky bargain) so that's my solution to the problem. Cloud settings seem to have a considerable impact on FPS, as do shadow settings. It's a strange combination of stable(ish), relatively low FPS (compared to pre-3.001) and micro stutters when close to enemy plane(s). Jason's VSync on, fullscreen off suggestion has made a minimal difference, but nothing considerable.
  6. Not sure if I'm the only one (probably not), but the 3.001 update has made multiplayer borderline unplayable for me. Pre-3.001 it was playable, if somewhat stuttery sometimes. With the new update I get 25-40 fps (15-20 less than before). Multiplayer turns into a slideshow the moment a plane is <1km away from me. Microstutters are gone and have been replaced with their older brother: stutters. The game is now absolutely beautiful, but unfortunately almost unplayable. Is anyone else experiencing performance issues? System specs: i5 4690 @ 3.5 8GB DDR3 GTX 760 Windows 10
  7. Wooo hoooo - 3.001 release tomorrow

    In case the devs need some encouragement:
  8. Seed download for all to benefit?

    No idea how seeding works to be honest, but if it helps others download the update faster I'll happily help. #spreadyourseed?
  9. Beautiful, just look at that colour! And those lovely legs. Presuming there's not much colour variation, they look to be a lot easier to spot than our European grass frogs. They are incredibly well camouflaged. I almost stepped on one a few weeks back, their brown-green hues blend very well.
  10. I absolutely love amphibians (not in that way, calm down), so here's one of my favourites: the common frog.

    You what?? I really don't think it sucks. I'm glad I'm not old enough to have watched F1 in the 80's/early 90's. The racing looks fantastic, but I don't think I'd enjoy watching a sport where there's a distinct possibility (or in the early days even a probability) of someone dying. I just couldn't enjoy watching that. Agreed, once Hakkinen retired it became a bit repetitive. But 2009 was a fun year with Brawn, and the 2016, 2017 seasons were quite exciting with some good racing. It may not match the Prost/Senna era (not that I'm able to judge) but the racing now is miles more exciting than it was in the mid 2000's.

    Looking forward to it personally! Mercedes's dominance is slightly reminiscent of Ferrari's in the early 2000's. It'd make for a nice change to see another team win the championship. RedBull, Ferrari and Mercedes all seem to have very competitive packages, so this coming season should be very interesting. I really, really hope McLaren does better this year, although that remains to be seen, given Renault's, Torro Rosso's and Sauber's performance. With a hopefully much more reliable car, I'm also excited to see what Max Verstappen can do!
  13. Just gonna swoop in here with some more zoology. #whogivesahoot
