    My ownership badges aren’t showing in forum

    Jason, is it really true that you haven't pre-ordered FC and TC? Looking at your badges...

    We've got new badges: FC vol.1 and TC CAP. What's CAP? There's Bronze badges for the BoX series as well.

    Inches and Feet: A Camel Conundrum

    Agree with your calculations, but both my ordinary UK size 10 outdoor shoes and indoor slippers measure 4" across at the widest part, so pedals that were narrower by 3/16" wouldn't really bother me. Also, men a hundred years ago were, on average, of smaller build than today so perhaps the average shoe size was smaller too? Cheers.

    Community Q&A with IL-2 Discord Community's milopugdog

    That's exactly what I don't like. A whisper coming in disrupts any conversation or instructions within your own flight. Just as you are issuing a navigation change, engine setting details or a warning that a bunch of greedy 109s are hammering down on our tails! Using the chatbox instead of whisper would be much better - if you could keep all the nonsensical stuff away from it.

    I hate whisper. I've always thought that there must be a better way to communicate between flights in a mission, whisper can be so off-putting when you are not the whisperer or whisperee (wonder if that's a real word...).

    Some love for the Dolphin!

    Excellent prop. The big question must be, however, is why are you in a churchyard with it?

    Why's that? Discord has far more functionality than TeamSpeak. We use both, but Discord also acts as a squad (and guests) forum.

    Friday Night Bomber Flight Topic

    Hope so; Bf109K-4 v Sopwith Camel should be mighty interesting!

    Where to after BoBP

    This, I think, is where BoX will have to head after the Pacific is started. Any further Eastern Front expansion will be struggling to put together a balanced planeset because we have a lot of the major aircraft already. Same with the Japanese Navy - how many marks of Zero do we need? Midway, the Slot and New Guinea would use up a lot of the available aircraft in the theatre. I would be more than happy to buy standalone maps and small plane packs rather than a rather forced Battle of X scenario. My personal favourite for a new BoX though would be the Battle of Epirus - the Italian invasion of northern Greece. Never been done; four air forces. Regia Aeronautica, Hellenic Air Force, RAF, Luftwaffe and an interesting initial plane set... Italy - Fiat CR.42 Fiat G.50bis Junkers Ju87B2/R5 Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 or Fiat BR.20 Macchi C.200 (Collector Plane) Greece - PZL P.24 Gloster Gladiator I/II Fairey Battle Bristol Blenheim IV Bloch MB.151 (Collector plane) RAF/Luftwaffe add-on pack Hawker Hurricane I Bristol Blenheim I/IF Dornier Do17Z Henschel Hs126 I was well into making a map for this scenario in Il-2 46 but never finished it. It's a great landscape.
  11. I finally cracked it! To get the squadron to undertake the mission firstly you have to wait for your wingman to join you on the runway, then make sure that he takes off with you. Once you are both in the air the orbiting Spits will head off to target. Didn't get the spotter plane this time, someone else did, but I drove a 190 into the ground by making the pilot dizzy . Now on to mission 4! Loving the campaign JM - thanks a million for making it. Cheers.

    It all depends on solving the problems of aircraft carriers and torpedoes. So many theatres and battles need one or both. I'm certain that the team are still hoping for Midway.

    Do any of you have a relative that was a pilot in WW1 or WW2?

    Grandfather in the RFC driving generals about in cars. Father in the RAF driving lorries around the western desert. Absolute groundhogs in my family!
