  1. Should I assume that you mean in the MP microcosm? Offline might be different.

    Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

    Just pulled the bird out of the oven. Let the gluttony begin!

    Happy Thanksgiving from the land of the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag natives.

    The gold bars beneath the avatar.

    I have nothing to contribute to this topic. Just showing off my gold bars. πŸ˜‰

    Is il-2 1946 worth it still?

    Chief, Put all the downloaded VP files into a single folder. It's a multi-part zip, so unzipping the first one unzips them all. (Although it looks like only part 1 unzips.) Just point the zip to the appropriate IL2 install folder.

    IL2 1946 best mods (hard drive conscious)

    Stock game: 6.5 gb HSFX (no longer supported, oriented to online): 13gb VP_Modpack: 40gb (without the jet stuff) BAT: 80gb I'd go with the VP option, even if you have to install it on a plug-in harddrive/thumbdrive. VP has always been sensitive to being able to run the game on modest hardware. I think you could run it from an external drive without too much trouble. BAT, OTOH, is rather demanding on hardware.

    If it had been like that, I don't think Trooper would have ever retired. ...Unless Mrs. Trooper may have had some issue with it. πŸ˜‰ Cloyd

    Menu Hangar low fps

    Really not trying to criticize you, Bidu. It's bad for me too. My system is old, but it works much better in-game than in the menu. I guess I can live with that. Cloyd

    Menu Hangar low fps

    The solution is simple: Don't spend too much time in the hangar. Make your clicks and be gone. πŸ˜‰ It's been that way from almost the beginning. There are plenty of other more compelling performance issues, in my opinion. Do you want them to spend time on this? If it were really simple, they probably would have fixed it already. (BTW, will we get a Christmas tree in the hangar this year? πŸ˜‰) Cloyd
  10. Hey GTOA, I wasn't being critical. I've never flown a plane, never will. But give me just a few things that help me to pretend, and I'm all in. I'm OK with filling in the blanks. πŸ˜‰
  11. Even the much maligned Pacific Fighters had pitching decks if you set the weather to poor. (The sky might be blue and bright, but in poor weather you'd be rockin' and rollin') Close enough. A little brain-squint / imagination and I don't need to see every rivet. But, I would like some cockpit shadows in my Wildcat! πŸ˜‰
  12. I'm withya of course Gambit21, but Hellcats over Henderson? Did you misspeak or do I have to learn to fly a plane other than a Wildcat? πŸ˜‰ Cloyd
  13. Just give me a Wildcat, Henderson Field, and a flock of Bettys to shoot at and I'll be a happy man.
