  1. Strange isn't it... like the OP I have bought everything that has come out in WWII combat aviation with the IL2 name on it. It comes to a tidy sum and I don't regret buying anything.

    The IL2 game series has given me years of fun and pleasure, right from the moment old Oleg released it... and yet not once did I think that anything that came out should be given to me for free.

    I don't see that, now that this latest add on to CloD is arriving, I should change my perspective in any way... it's a funny old world!

    They are going to release the P-47 razorback tomorrow for Canada Day, as a gift to me, specifically. Be sure.

    You have no idea what you are talking about Trooper117. 😂 One thing you, against all odds, understood correctly is that there's no going back. Didn't sell TrackIR, I still got 2 different sets in a box. So your whole "not forward planning" has missed the point entirely. Your hate against emerging technology - without ever having tried it - sounds as silly as the comments of people that hate EVs, but have never tried one. Or those who hate motocyclists, but never rode a proper bike.


      👉 You should not derail the thread trying to divide us into VR vs non-VR player. We are one community. Some are merely expressing their opinion freely, discussing truths about why or why not we'd purchase it. And where people of like-minded interest come together, they talk about it.


    Easy as that. The scenario looks great.


    You have totally and completely missed my point... and I'm not trying to divide anyone.

  4. It never stops does it... constant moans about VR. Anyone with more than 2 brain cells understands that they want to do it, but it won't come in Desert Wings. I'm not sure how many times it's been stated by the team.

    At the end of the day, VR users love their VR sets, and that's great, I for one am pleased they love combat aviation with VR, but constantly ramming the forums with posts claiming they won't buy without it is simply cutting off their nose to spite their face... again, it's been stated over and over, if you want further improvements then Tobruk has to sell well, otherwise that's it, probably the end.

    People say, I've sold my trackIR, so no VR I'm not buying... madness, what about forward planning? If I owned a VR the last thing I would do is sell my trackIR. What if my VR set goes kaput? 

    I then can't fly any combat sim can I... at least I could revert to my old trackIR until my VR set is fixed.

    But that is my mindset, that's why I have my old trackIR as back up in case my trackIR 5 goes west.

    All I'll finish with is, guys... support the team and you will end up with what you want, future products to keep us flying... If you think about it, it's the same thing that jason keeps saying for the GB series, it's what keeps all the flight sims going.

    It's installing now, ended up paying $20 for Elite and the Horizons DLC. The learning curve may be a PITA,  but I'm off to the edge of the galaxy.


    I love ED... not played in a few months though... you may have tempted me to fire it up again!

    I’d be happy with no fighters, we have lots of options for that. Just the bombers and a detailed flight model and I’ll be very happy. 


    If there was no threat the game would get old very, very fast.

    The fighter threat in particular needs to be potent and dangerous, otherwise you might as well just be on training runs over friendly territory.
