  1. RoF has a decade's worth of content, single player careers and campaigns - and while I love that FC is being made, and hope it will one day live up to its predecessor - there's very little in it right now to truly recommend it over the older game. The planeset is condensed, the FM's and models are basically identical, and there's no mission or SP content for it whatsoever. Additionally, though this is entirely subjectively my own opinion - I think FC is even a step down in some areas of graphics, clouds and damage modelling. The biggest draw of FC is populated servers and VR support. The latter alone was enough to warrant the purchase for me, but if I could own only one I'd take RoF any day. Value for Cost is clearly higher. That said, why not both?
  2. I mean, to be fair, they DO have several hundred people on their team, an exploitative ecosystem and millions upon millions of dollar revenue. That helps.
  3. Unlike the bubble tops they're aesthetically pleasing.
  4. As much as I love the 88, the C-6A version doesn't bring all that much to the table, and was only operational in the theatre very briefly. It suffered heavily and achieved nothing, which I believe will be the historically accurate fate of players flying it online as well. A FW is going to be a better strafing platform in exactly all use cases. The night fighter with radar would be much more interesting of course, but to be honest I don't see much use for it either as there aren't any proper targets to engage, the AI doesn't really support sneaking up on a formation of bombers, and night missions in general work so-so at best. All in all I want to love it but next to a 109G and 190A it seems a rather anemic addition. ...but it has two engines so I'll fly it.
  5. I can't lie, even with the Ar-234, Mosquito and Me-410 I'm disappointed. Even the planeset contains a lot of re-used craft with questionable value. Make no mistake, I appreciate that you have a difficult task steering this ship in this day and age, but... aw 😕
  6. Diver recovery and Contact altimeter, I never thought I'd see the day! Bloody hell about that 110 armour though, I knew something was off about that! Fantastic gift, thank you devs!
  7. And realistic. Personally I find starting the Me262 really fun. It's the most success I ever get to enjoy in a fighter
  8. Well it's a 70-100 FPS drop for him, which is what people who aren't Saudi oil millionaires call "stuttering" on this forum.
  9. Waiting for some great bombs torpedos news to drop right down my funnel on december 7th!
  10. The turret caused severe disorientation vertigo, it's very common in situations where the body and brain get confused as to what movement is affecting them, such as when reading in a car - the brain thinks you're stationary, the body is moving, you feel sick. Also very common when looking through mirrors or periscopes that shift your field of view away from the direction of your head/neck, especially in situations where your body is also already moving laterally. Lastly I'm sure many of you regular VR users can attest to feeling Vertigo when first getting used to the headset. Some games can be extremely nauseating - moving your head a little, camera moving laterally, and rotating, all at the same time your actual body is reporting being still in chair...? That's the vertigo we're discussing. Not the chronic condition. I'm with @Cpt_Cool on this one, argue 2 all the way, production realities and all that, but arguing 1 is absurd.
  11. Jason, I know we have two separate layers of clouds, old pal! I was referring to a single stack of cloud rising multiple levels , like a pillar. -Or perhaps less dramatically, just some more vertical variance. Many good memories of dogfights swirling around and in between steep cliffs of cloud. ❤️
  12. Wasn't expecting something today, very nice! These cloud updates make me long for the multi-layered cloudstacks of RoF. Even after all these years RoF still has the most beautiful clouds.
  13. Not expecting a DD today, but some standards must be upheld. This thread cannot be allowed to fall into disrepair. For some future DD I still have my eyes fixed on information on the air marshal feature, and of course the theater announcement. Further official confirmation of the Hurricane and Yawn-9 is more likely, however. Holding out hope for that sweet Arado action.
  14. Probably oversped the engine in that dive if you were following a FW in steeply and had full throttle. The I-16 must occasionally be flown like the rather early design it is.
  15. For me the preference for the LW planes has always been the fact that, being raised in western europe, you grew up seeing, hearing and reading about the German, British and American planes. I don't think I could name a single Russian fighter aircraft until quite late. It's not that they were worse, or better, there was just no romance or baseline fascination for the types. A blue preference would never keep me from the numerically underprivileged though, unless I had my mind set on flying the Stuka that night - and let's be fair, that's probably better for Red stats than me flying a Russian fighter Now american and british types, including the P-38 which is one of my all time faves, are making an appearance, and with some solid ground-pounding capacities as well! Good news all around! Once the novelty wears off I think we'll see less stacking overall to be honest - but personally I could get shot down in a 262 by an I-16 so I've long since settled in for being seal-clubbed regardless of airframe.
