  1. I recal Oleg saying that he texts are not written in old or new Japanese. They are written in another style entirely called Technical Japanese, and there are few people left who can read it.
  2. I would happily have the startup sequences for all Japanese aircraft to be subtitled on a best guess basis. I would also be fine with the D3A and B5N etc having a flight model appropriate to their size, but not necessarily guaranteed in their adherence to details that have already been lost to history. A bit of extrapolation is fine if they just get on with it.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    It was definitely a shocker when the focus of the game switched to Bodenplatte and 1945. Prior to that the tone for the twelve months before was, please buy the Kuban so we can get to the Pacific next. There wasn't even an indication that the Pacific had been dropped. Right up the last day and the eve of the "Very Special Announcement" for the next chapter. I was sitting there, credit card in one hand and pecking away at the F5 button with the other. Right up to the last second. Then the announcement appeared and it was not the Pacific at all, but instead a who's-who of uberplanes from the Warclouds server circa 2008. I thought it was a prank!
  4. That is really good news. The manoeuvring routines developed in the Diadalos patches are brilliant so similar progress for Clod would be game changing in SP.

    It's a reference to the German pilot figure, who henceforth shall be known as Pips Pringle

    As much as I would like it, I don’t believe that will happen.

    I’d like all the crewmen to talk like a certain beloved plumber Ay! It’s a me!! Mario!

    This demo is probably close as I'll get to my 2014 wish.

    The other crewmen are just there for decoration. You can’t ask your navigator for a heading for example or anything else of the sort. You could fly past enemy ships all day and nobody would think to mention it. The good news though is that there are no more flyable bombers planned for the series, so the issue will only be limited to the small handful of aircraft we already have.

    You're right. It would need a different game and a different developer.

    Oh, it got cancelled? https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2018/10/17/bruce-willis-film-canceled-after-co-star-fan-bingbing-disappears/1668153002/

    Personally I would like a recreation of the ubizoo arguments between Skychimp and BaldieJr, regarding whether or not Burma was a major theatre of operations. Now THAT was combat!

    A real life recording from WW2 isn't as realistic as your video game?

    1943 Berlin Blitz

    Really impressive. Such a contrast to the sanitised e-sports of modern flight simulations.

    I've listened to that recording many times over the years. I never expected to experience it like that. What wouldn't I give for a new addon, Il-2 Bomber Crew
