  1. What a terribly unfair and spiteful posting. Seems you hate this dev. team and sim with a vengeance. Well, don't let the door hit you on the way out.
  2. HH Pauk, that video is one of the best flight sim vids I have EVER SEEN! - The quiet start with the beauty of the terrain, the slight rise in intensity with the ships, then the ground war opening up and then... - air combat mayhem! - Fantastic script and very very well put togehter, just flawless really. So intense and exciting to watch. The final scene of the tank buster sliding towards the camera... WHOA! ---- Shamrockonefive, I also loved your Flying circus vid. Excellent stuff all around. Just as I was thinking "hmm, too bad he hasn't shown us the beautiful cities"... you did just that! Kudos on a fabulous job to you too, thrilling stuff.
  3. Salute and thank you, Jason, for honouring veterans with this beautiful sim.
  4. What an accomplishment! - Hope you'll get lots of great reviews in gaming mags and sites and super sales over the holidays!
  5. Love to see the Hurricane coming!" - Here's some Hurri slow-mo porn I made a couple of years ago... https://youtu.be/0qMXr5cXoh8
  6. Slow for the first thirty seconds, then sure, hit the accelerator!
  7. From a fellow video maker: I love your excellent and very creative camera work and editing! You are putting so much work into these videos and it really, really shows. You are making this sim look like a high-budget movie. Not that you need any advice, but I think that - regarding your latest vids - you should just spend half a minute slowly easing us into the action. Present the opponents, start a bit slow and then, BAM, go for it! (My vids were made many years ago, here are my best ones, https://youtu.be/T5Wuknd8Q60, https://youtu.be/NAlL_QaeLfw, https://youtu.be/0qMXr5cXoh8, https://youtu.be/hipWoINtJX0) I have +2500 subscribers and +1,5 million views... -I wish I could pass the subscribers to you! 🙂
  8. Excellent compilation, great view of the new dogfights with G-effects, top-notch!
  9. You have to let the AI get used to the new effects as well. I'm sure they won't do that anymore after a few weeks.
  10. The map represents a huge challenge: a mountaineous Ardennes region, huge cities, diverse airfields and Ruhr industry, all part of an age-old European cultural landscape on one single map. Looking forward to seeing how you pull that off!
  11. At least it would be nice to have the "ski jump" buildings as ground target sites.
  12. The devs are giving us pretty much all the tools necessary for making compelling missions. I think it is now up to users and players to use those tools and make realistic airfields if they want to. The Bodenplatte map is useful for many many other periods in WWII. It shouldn't be hobbled with very period-specific damage.
  13. A first look at Bodenplatte.
  14. I live a half hour drive from Melsbroek Air Base, which is now adjacent to Brussels Airport (Zaventem). I love the views of the map and can attest to the fact that it looks pretty damn' exactly like the landscape we have here in Belgium. "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melsbroek_Air_Base The aerodrome was created by German military during World War II. Melsbroek also was operated by the RCAF (Royal Canadian Air Force) and the RAF during World War II (after the 1944 liberation) when it was known as B58 Melsbroek. Operation Bodenplatte, the German aerial attack of 1 January 1945, hit Melsbroek hard. According to Emil Clade (leading III./JG 27), the AAA positions were not manned, and aircraft were bunched together or in lines, which made perfect targets. The attack caused considerable damage among the units based there and was a great success. The Recce Wings had lost two entire squadrons worth of machines. No. 69 Squadron RAF lost 11 Vickers Wellingtons and two damaged. Possibly all No. 140 Squadron RAF′s Mosquitoes were lost. At least five Spitfires from No. 16 Squadron RAF were destroyed. No. 271 Squadron RAF lost at least seven Harrow transports "out of action". A further 15 other aircraft were destroyed. 139 Wing reported five B-25s destroyed and five damaged. Some 15 to 20 USAAF bombers were also destroyed.[2][3] Another source states that 13 Wellingtons were destroyed, as were five Mosquitoes, four Auster and five Avro Ansons from the Tactical Air Forces 2nd Communications Squadron. Three Spitfires were also lost and two damaged.[4] At least one RAF Transport Command Douglas Dakota was destroyed.[5] After the war, Melsbroek replaced Haren Airfield as the Belgian national airport. That title is now carried by the Zaventem terminal on the same aerodrome, built for the 1958 world exposition. At that time, the existing terminal was taken over by the then Belgian Air Force."
