  1. Microprose right now is more of a publisher on Steam than an actual development house. https://store.steampowered.com/publisher/microprose Some titles do look nice, but yeah the B-17 game is certainly absent...
  2. At best the Microprose effort will be a VR bomber experience (usable without VR), and I wouldn't expect much more fidelity than what we had in the previous titles. Honestly, I am OK with that, its not really a flightsim. Are people confusing the Mighty 8th with the Lancaster one being made in Canada? Or is it the same person (allegedly)? Coming back to the old topic how many times were bombers used in shorter range missions? Can't really press 'T' for time compression in a multiplayer game (unless its disabled when playing on servers?). I know they used B-17s just before D-Day and
  3. Do you think the Mulberry's should be modeled? There has to be a limit obviously due to limits, although having HMS Roberts for instance would be nice as the Monitors were quite unique and re-usable if we ever get to the Med.
  4. Your entire first paragraph is wrong, factually and actuality. They did not come close, its a myth like say, the Battle of Britain being a close run thing. You're arguing with a *professor* of *strategic* level which I would safely is far higher than what you have, honestly if you want to argue with him go ahead as I have linked to it :). Second paragraph, sorry, but it's also latching onto how history of the Bulge and WW2 in general has been presented, he stated this clearly and concisely. Please, if you have anything real to add go an argue this with the O'Brian himself. Are you
  5. Its obvious, those people who have Nazi fetishieses and how the Bulge has been poorly represented :). I think he is being straight and frank, it's not unprofessional at all.
  6. I have been listening to and following Philips P. O'Brian for awhile now and will read his book "How the War Was Won: Air-Sea Power and Allied Victory in World War II" https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/110871689X/ref=crt_ewc_img_huc_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER Here's his knowledge on Battle of The Bulge:
  7. Can't wait! Unfortunately my HOTAS Warthog throttle died after a power cut, I thought I had moved it to a proper backup UPS, but sadly I was wrong :(. Just paid $50 for a replacement piece. Nevertheless I will be putting $ for the preorder :).
  8. Must admit I now prefer the way career mode is handled by the Il2 team now vs how it was in the past with other games like Mig Alley, Falcon 4 etc, but I know everyone has their preferences :).
  9. Nice! :). But, I have a life and didn't get to read through every single message....Thank you letting me know :).
  10. I recommend watching Tim's video on the Shoreham crash, as it does explain physiology well and its easy to follow: What did you fly? F-16's? :). I highlighted this reply as its a bugbear of mine, I personally hate when the AI obviously cheats, and not having the same effects is basically that imho.
  11. Honestly, this is best to me to nowadays. I don't want a fantasy campaign, even though they can be fun from a superman (or is that superpilot?) point of view. Incorporating those additions would be great.
