  1. is the loss of sound, kind of a lowering and dullness, in a dive a bug or a feature? Edit, this is in the P51
  2. One must remember also that the ai in BoX uses the same flight model as the player. I'm no expert, by a long way, but that must affect computing, and therefore fps, power? I wonder if given a FC fedelity ww2 module with improved ai flight models in DCS would increase performance in DCS. Both games have different approaches but I would love to see a DCS "quality" rhineland map. I played both games today, the atmosphere, map, sounds, tracer effects all impressed me immensely in DCS. The lack of flyables in DCS as well as the one WW2 map disapoints me. If DCS were to start releasing FC fedelity WW2 modules, therefore speeding up production, they would be hard to beat.
  3. Yes but the Germans were are all saints in the 2 world wars. They could never do anything like that.
  4. Do not post pics with Swastikas period. Not from books or even photographs.
  5. Do not post pics with Swastikas period. Not from books or even photographs. It's not fine.
  6. I have VR and never use it anymore. I used it in my old place but after my recent move it has stayed boxed up in a cupboard. I hate to admit it but DCS is my go to sim at the moment because it looks far better than il2. Il2 is a much better experience than DCS in VR but I just dont play it anymore. It looks old tech, to me. If Il2 had the lighting and ability to populate their maps like the Normandy map in DCS I would spend my time in il2. Unfortunately the limits of the current engine is turning me off. For the first time in forever I took the P51 online in DCS and was gobsmacked by the beauty of the experience. Admittedly there were only a handful of folk in the server but it was smooth I even scored a 109k, he disconnected before I registered the kill but I'm claiming it. My ideal sim would be il2 in the DCS engine. I dont need the full fidelity of the DCS aircraft but I cant do without the beauty of it right now. I would say the il2 engine needs an upgrade. Just my opinion.
  7. There'll be kurfürst over the white cliffs of Dover. I dont get why they dont make a map for the available aircraft? They have the 2 iconic korean war aircraft and they ignore them. 2 new maps, a missed opportunity. The channel map? Why not a rheinland to go with the WW2 planeset? I just don't get it, sure it looks good but c'mon. There are no "late 30s" aircraft. Who the f**k comes up with these ideas?
  8. Each and everyone of us can count real friends, those that understand us and genuinely care about us, on the fingers of one hand. Those are the lucky ones. Truth be told there really aren't that many decent, honest selfless folk left. I'm not one of them either. Most of us are truly alone whether it's down to our own selfish nature or everyone else's. You just have to be true to yourself. Accept who you and who everyone else is. If they dont do it for you anymore remove them from your life, be selfish use your "ignore button" they will move on just as you will. Spring will come. Life is a blast enjoy the trip why waste it with folk who make the trip unbearable? A long time ago I got fed up and on a whim bought a ticket to Australia. I met so many folk from all over the world, people I will never see again, people so different from my friends back home, people who changed me for the better. I ditched my friends back home, I changed pretty much everything about my life. Those people, in Australia, were some of the best friends I ever had. I will never see them again but I cherish their memory.
  9. I have feeling the next DCS ww2 map will include fjords just because of the mosquito. Just a feeling. So if LN were to include a clipped wing corsair in their package it would have a home. Just a feeling and wishful thinking.
  10. There is nothing, zero (no pun), nada on the DCS horizon, and that stretches into decades, in regards to WW2 pacific. The F4u and its assets, carrier ai zero, are a one off. All 3rd parties have their roadmaps set. Even leatherneck, the maker of the F4u, have the F8 next. ED have said that western Europe is their WW2 theatre and have no intention of moving it to the pacific. If they did you would still be looking at 10 years in the future considering how long it's taking them to get the 109, 190, spitfire out. Not to mention the P47 and 262. The only hope for a fully realised WW2 pacific theatre in DCS is a brand new 3rd party. Not going to happen in our lifetimes.
  11. I have looked and I have failed to see anyone complaining about a free map. I for one don't feel "greatful" why should I? "The less that gets supported the less we have"? I'm not supporting ED because they're full of shit. I'm not going to support a developer that doesnt support its paying customers. They release half assed products, under the beta banner, at full price and drag out the beta for years. They dont wait until one module is out of beta/released before they release the next one, then the next one. The Hornet customers are rightly pissed because the viper customers are getting long promised systems in the viper before the Hornet. Now there is a new A-10 in development? Where does that put the Hornet customers? I own neither of those modules but I fully support the folk who bought them, not ED. There are far too many folk who will jump to EDs defence. Enabling their BS, trampling on their fellow customers. Nah I wont support them and the less they develop the better for their existing customers.
