    Sweet fancy Moses what a great update. Little bit of everything. Looking forward to the new vehicle damage model and of course the P-47!

    DD today?

    We get K4 skin screenshots this Friday, and the update comes next week after the sale ends. Boom. That's my guess.

    A Thought on Pricing

    I've never once complained about the price of a flight sim compared to other "games". Guys we're such a small genre in gaming...even sims for that matter. The fact they are making such a high quality game for us with constant updates and improvements in a timely fashion and very close to schedule is nothing short of a miracle. It's so worth the price! I'll always support this dev team. Keep up the great work. Insert "shut up and take my money meme here"
  6. Still using the beastly Logitech z5500 surround speakers for movies. But I like good headphones for flying on PC.
  7. I have one of my hat switches on my joystick and throttle for snap views. They can come in handy even with TrackIR. Joystick hat up is zoom to gunsight, hat down is a quick check six. Throttle hat back is a check gauges snap I think it's "." by default on the numpad.

    Northern part of Eastern front

    Always was a fan of the Northern Russian Front in the original IL-2. Something like this would be cool down the road.

    Fuel Mixtures: Dr. I and SPAD

    Do any of the current ww1 planes have an Altitude Throttle? I remember that from RoF, and I see it's now listed in the key binding in BoX. I don't think any current planes use one though?

    How did you become addicted to WW2 aircraft ?

    Growing up an hour from EAA Oshkosh helped a little Then it was history class, books, movies, model airplanes, and of course video games and flight sims after that.

    Fully agree. I stayed up past 3am on a work night just flying around in quick mission on the kuban map, setting up my controls for each plane and seeing what everything does and just learning about each plane and flying around through the clouds, water, and mountains. Simply amazing. Adding more US planes and some late war stuff is just icing on the cake and will hopefully get more people into this amazing sim keep up the great work!

    Wish they made planes for X-Plane. The accusim stuff looks pretty cool.

    Vanguard: 1944

    I think PS is still pretty early in development. I'll keep waiting for it to be good. But I love how Squad plays so far, hoping PS can do the same but in WW2.
