  1. Hi MP, I don't have a Warthog but when I was considering getting one I came across this:
  2. Thanks for the clarification Chill and I agree. I should have been more specific in referring to "yield" vs "ultimate". I still can't say for sure if this is in any way modeled in the game. And just as an aside regarding wood spars I've seen numerous Citabria wood spar wings with cracks and they pretty much always followed the grain from fixture attach holes... usually from the strut and main attach points. This is an Airworthiness Directive. We had the choice of replacing the spars or buying new metal spar wings... I only rebuilt one set of wings with wood spars. The customer coughed up the $ for new metal spar wings in all other cases. That's not to say that metal spars aren't more susceptible to fatigue than wood (they certainly are) just that the "modern" wings are better engineered in this case..
  3. I just want to give a big thumbs up for the new look! The "Wet Look" is gone! And I didn't have to mess with my existing alphas. Bare metal has a much more realistic appearance as well as the painted areas.
  4. I just don't see how the critical G load would be cumulatively reduced by repeatedly inducing the Gs to the load limit in real life... especially for wood spar wings. Wood is not subject to fatigue as metal is. Even metal spars would probably not fatigue enough to get anywhere close to causing failure in just one flight. But that is different from damage caused by being hit with rounds. I'm just saying that you should be able to pull whatever the load limit is ... say 6.5 G... all day and night long ad infinitum without failure of an undamaged spar. I haven't noticed any cumulative modeling of such in the game.
  5. Lefuneste, Thank you for putting this together! The difficulty of checking 6 has been the primary reason for me not using my VR. If I can get this working, I can't see going back to 2d, however, I'm having a helluva time getting this to work. At first, I didn't realize that a lot of the steps had to be done with the VR headset on. I was trying to do it on desktop and couldn't understand why I wasn't seeing what was noted in the pdf instructions. (I would suggest that a note be added to when to don the headset be put in the instructions). I'm using Rift CV1. So, I finally got my Rift controllers mapped in Driver4VR as specified but it's not working in game. I think the issue may be that I had initially followed the instructions for the Vive controllers and I now have Vive as well as Rift controllers loaded in Driver4VR and they also show in the Steam Beta window which shows which VR components are active. I can't figure out how to delete the Vive controllers. Is there some way to delete them and would the dual controllers... Rift and Vive... possibly be the issue? I also have FreePie loaded but I don't know if the freePie script in first post zip will work for Rift controllers. Help from anyone who has a Rift using this would be MOST appreciated.
  6. This! +1 (Though I'm not sure if it's do-able considering the current DM mechanics).
  7. I'm not seeing "SteamVR Driver for Razer Hydra [beta]" as shown below My Steam screen only shows: -TOOLS (1/91) Sixense SDK for the Razer Hydra How do I "opt for BETA in properties" Also, it isn't clear if this will work for Rift CV1... will it?
  8. I shee Pink elephants every day after happy hour..."hic"
  9. Considering the vitriol and controversy in this thread perhaps it should be titled the My God! To Mod. Aren't there enough problems in our worlds at the moment? Sheesh... OTOH... I do find a perverse pleasure in reading all this shit... More Popcorn!
  10. Nah... but Meth... that's an altogether different matter. 🤩
  11. Well... at least a bit more reasonable... but with my record of wound badges, I'm still going to be doing the big snooze 🤪
  12. I tried a search for the answer but didn't have the patience to wade through the results...I know it was a topic of discussion previously. Did the wound blackout get eliminated or lessened in the latest patch? I haven't experienced it lately. If it did I say Bravo and thank you!
  13. We had a CL2 in our flight popping in and out of visibility in the last session of BA. For the whole flight. It seemed to be directly related to the message... "No position data on ... [pilot name]". I don't know diddly... but could it be packet loss? Oh... shooting guns didn't have any effect. We often didn't see his tracers or flares when invisible. I seem to recall seeing tracers momentarily from empty sky and he popped in but soon disappeared again.
  14. Went to look at The Vintage Aviator to check it out since I haven't been there in a while and to confirm the sad news about closing due to COVID. I came across this SB (and before anyone jumps and says the landing wires have no relationship to wing folding in flight... yes, I know. They only carry negative loads.) I just thought it interesting. http://www.thevintageaviator.co.nz/sites/default/files/webform/Service-bulletin-0001.pdf
