    So who else is looking forward to P-38 ?

    Here is a good long-read on the P-38 which nuances a lot of what has been said in this thread: http://www.ausairpower.net/P-38-Analysis.html

    But that's exactly the rub that Rau mentions. The Lightning was too much of a handful for inexperienced newcomers.

    I remember reading that when bounced by German fighters P-38 pilots had to manipulate 15+ instruments to go from *cruise mode* to *combat mode* (simplistically speaking) and that made the plane much less efficient and more dangerous for its pilots than it should have been.

    FS Expo Post Mortem report

    I third that suggestion, especially since I myself suggested it just four postings above yours... 😁

    FS Expo Post Mortem report

    Channelling your inner donald there, I see.... 😉 Thanks for a great report. Another suggestion for next years' expo would be to have a one hour "greatest hits" game footage video running on a big screen... That would pull in even more people.
  6. Excellent point! There are so many acerbic naysayers spouting negativity and spamming everybody with their pet peeves... All hiding behind the anonymity of a forum handle... And forgetting that they're abusing real people in flesh and blood trying to do their best, i.e. the wonderful developers of this sim. To the haters I just say: imagine for a minute that Jason and his merry band just packed it all up and went on to do something else. Or imagine that they had done it three years ago. Yeah right: not a nice thought. So give them some positivity and show a bit of gratitude for the greatness that is this sim.

    Flight-Sim Expo 2018 Update and Special Thanks!

    Next Expo you should have three simpits running VR and the possibility for conference goers to sign up for ten-minute slots. Also, I think it would be a good idea to have a web page describing a "guaranteed" good hardware set-up for an excellent VR experience (updated over time). To help newcomers with a desire to fly VR.

    Those simpits, what a great job, even interior paint in the correct colours! Wishing you a fantastic expo and hoping for a pic of the booth babes 🙂

    Developer Diary, Part 193 - Discussion

    Hi BlackSix, I live in Belgium. It is important to understand that there were and are three languages spoken in the country. French to the South, Dutch in the North and German in a little area to the East. The naming of towns should be according to the language spoken in the region in question. For example, in the lower left corner of the map you have a town called, in French, Mons. This is the correct name to use since the town is placed in the French-speaking part of Belgium. In Dutch the same town is called Bergen. The two words mean the same, namely "Mountains". I am very glad to see that the map you show in the update has the names correctly: in Dutch in the northern part, in French in the Southern part and in German in the small area to the East. Just make sure you stay on top of this rather confusing situation. Here is a list of municipality names in the three languages (Wallonia is the French-speaking region and includes the small German-speaking part, Vlaanderen is the Dutch-speaking region): https://www.lexilogos.com/belgique_communes.htm BTW, Belgium has some quite spectacular mountains and gorges in the Ardennes region. I really look forward to flying through them! https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/ba/Anseremme_-_Freÿr_051011_(1).jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/29/Dinant_JPG01.jpg https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Walzin_Castle_R03.jpg

    Which 262 Will We Get?

    Me 262 A-1a/U5 Heavy jet fighter with six 30 mm (1.181 in) MK 108 cannon in the nose and Me 262 A-2a "Sturmvogel" Definitive bomber version retaining only the two lower 30 mm (1.181 in) MK 108 cannon make the most sense. I think they weren't too different when it comes to the exterior and cockpit, so it should be relatively easy to model both. - I have followed this team since Neoqb days. Amazing to think that we are now moving from biplanes to jets...

    what is this in the kuban sea?

    The bridge is of high strategic significance to Russia. It will be the only land link from Russia proper to the Crimea.

    What will IL-2 look like a decade from now?

    He, was it ten years ago there was a guy called Jason on the SimHQ forums who worked for TrackIR in some capacity?... - I wonder whatever happened to him... ;-) Just to say that it is REALLY hard to predict how flight simming will look ten years from now! I just hope we haven't been *deleted* by our new AI Overlords.
  14. Very glad to see all the love Ed Heinemann's A-20 is getting in the sim! Before the A-20 he designed the Douglas SBD Dauntless: And after the A-20 he went on to design quite a few more true aviation classics: The A-26 (B-26): The A-1 Skyraider: The A-3 Skywarrior: The A-4 Skyhawk: The F4D Skyray: ...and the first plane to fly faster than Mach 2, the Douglas D-558-2 Skyrocket: - An amazing career, spanning so much of aviation history! I am happy to have his autobiography on my shelves: Edward H. Heinemann and Rosario Rausa, "Ed Heinemann - Combat Aircraft Designer"
