  1. The campaign looks fantastic. Literary qualities of the text are top-notch, well done!
  2. Gambit21, huge thanks for your enormous work! What an amazing contribution to the sim. And the new title is amazing, Havoc Kuban are just two words that swing very well together. Can't wait to see it coming out.

    Phlydaily played IL-2 today

    No concept of stall speed and energy managment... - Yup, definitely a War Thunder flyer. 🙂
  5. Thanks for your hard work with the update devs! Would be amazing if someone found an old real-life Jug driver and let him try it in VR. I'd be thrilled to see his impressions.

    DD today?

    I have it on good authority that today's update will be about the various tree types on the Bodenplatte map.

  10. I am not interested in buying a graphics card now and then having to buy a new one within the next year, and trying to sell the old card. My present desktop computer has conked out totally, so I will be buying soon.

    Would love to see a movie of those buildings getting destroyed. Handsome pilot and beautiful Camel!
  12. Article on the RTX cards for VR gaming: https://uploadvr.com/rtx-2080-performance-benchmark/ Seems that they'll be worth it since I intend to buy a next gen VR headset...

    RTX 2080Ti reviews

    Thanks for linking, Flanker, I counted on hearing from you when the Guru3D reviews would be out...
  14. Wauw, great to see that conversation got going here! I have really learnt a lot. For the moment I am waiting for the reviews to come in on the new RTX cards to see if they are really worth it. Watercooling? I thought that was just a gimmick. Will my computer make nice bubbling sounds like an aquarium?
