  1. I agree. I'm sure FC is top notch and the price is fair if you consider you're getting a high quality product. I thought about purchasing FC after reading a few articles on Stormbirds website. The only problem is I'm unfamiliar with WWI sims and I simply don't know if It'll be my thing, so 80$ is a bit of a gamble. I know I'd be supporting the devs, but budget is sometimes tight and I have to choose wisely. Maybe a standard version (eight planes instead of ten) or some WW1 collector aircraft to learn the ropes would be good for undecided potential newcomers before getting the full package. I think I'll try RoF and spectate at a FC match (if that's possible) to get a taste of some WW1 action.
  2. One of my favoritos is the autobiography of Manfred Von Richtofen. Surprisingly direct, natural, aseptic and unvarnished. A Ju-52 would be great if it's still available PD: Number 14 (I love raffles)
  3. I think he meant USN torpedo-bombers. There were no flyable TBD or TBF in old IL-2. They made them flyable thorugh mods though, but cockpits were a franken mix of Corsair and Buffalo cockpits IIRC.
  4. Devs are making a terrific job and I'm aware that their resources are limited, but I also think medium bombers need some love. Realistic bombsights would be great in first place. I also remember they said that coop multicrew (copilot, bombardier...) would require a lot of code changes and wasn't on the table. I don't know if someting has changed on the matter since Tank C rew is showing amazing multicrew capabilities. I'm not talking about shared/dual controls, but more like the pilot "passing" full control to pilot or bombardier. Just daydreaming. I understand heavy bombers would be a massive undertaking and are a no-go, so I'll wait patiently for flyable B-25 or B-26.
  5. Are you going to release a B-25 template? I know it's only AI but I'd love to make some USAAF skins for that beauty.
  6. I understand the devs decission and I wish them the best of luck. I'm sure BoN is gonna be a resounding success. On a personal note, my heart is broken.
  7. IIRC pure black in alpha layer is transparent in game.
  8. Semi historical https://www.mediafire.com/view/6a92ib4zeowu4bt/M4A2_87_rus.dds/file
  9. IMHO scaled maps are a no-go. I don't want to talk in the name of the developers but I think that's not the way they work. I love Guadalcanal '42 but insane distances are a major handicap. Air starts or fictional airfields would be an indulgence difficult to overcome.
  10. Yep. Bombs, umbrellas and brooms are included.

  12. Whatever they make it's going to be a blast. Midway and Normandy are serious contenders but I wouldn't rule out a Pacific escenario without Carriers, like Solomons 43 (USMC Corsairs) or New Guinea.
