    FLYING CIRCUS : DOGFIGHT VIDEO

    Hmm. Not very inspiring unfortunately. The AI just putters around the motorway doesn't it?

    Books - What are you reading?

    I haven't read any of Patrick O'Brian yet, although I did blast through all of the Hornblower novels a couple of years ago. Is the Aubrey series similar?

    Where do you rank IL-2 Great Battles?

    I rank it somewhere below Il-2 1946. SP Career, AI flight behaviour, AI radio calls, flight commands and longevity of visual effects don't match and certainly do not exceed the gameplay of ten years ago. Maps and planes look nice, however it just isn't there yet. If ever it manages to beat 1946 in these areas I'd certainly rate it higher.

    Geoffrey Wellum RIP

    I'm really saddened by that. I was just thinking of him too.

    Really enjoying the single player missions.

    They really need to do something about that.

    Pacific?

    Very true. Imagine by comparison the length and scope of a career that could center around the defence or encirclement of Rabaul. That scenario could run for years!

    Model Pilot

    It's been three years and a bloody awful experience, but I've finally managed to get Zvezda's 1/144 scale Fairey Battle from this: Into this: I can't even begin to describe the number of corrections needed to convert this Monopoly counter into a decent model. There's light at the end of the tunnel though, and with a bit of luck I might be able to get some canopy masking and a coat of Dark Earth on over the weekend.

    Pacific?

    Considering the workload needed to nurse Bodenplatte, Tank Crew and Flying Circus through the early stages and develop them into something more than just a dropdown list in QMB - I would not expect to see a Pacific addon any time within the next three to five years.

    Nailing a locomotive with a Tiger tank.

    Must have been carrying a supply of asbestos and fire blankets.

    Camel

    The RoF Camel requires the user to pull the stick back into their stomach to get out of a spin. Even with the engine off, which goes against all real-life recommendations. It will be interesting to see if such peculiarities are reproduced in FC or if the new game brings some more realistic behaviour.

    Limited to Scripted Campaigns?

    In my experience this discussion may be a little premature. There will be plenty of time to worry about gameplay later, when it’s too difficult to change anything.

    Bullet proof canvas

    The bulletproof name is misleading, but if I recall what it attempted to describe was the bullet touching the "canvas" (another misleading name) and doing all it's damage there. The rest of the bullet's real-life path through the airframe, pilot or other vitals was not calculated after the initial contact.

    DD today?

    Cool. Any gameplay improvements or additions to the career?
  14. Feathered_IV

    DD today?

    Yeah, I'm getting one too.

    No seriously. It really is in there!
