  1. I have no idea. I have been quite scarce myself for the past few years but I am heading back to base ๐Ÿ™‚. Got my Warthog the other day ... Flew offline for the first time in quite a while. I love the way this sim has progressed and I had no doubt it would.
  2. This is a great interview.. KUDOS to Jason for your diplomacy throughout this interview...
  3. Yeah .. that's me .... ๐Ÿ–– I see they have the throttle for $299.....
  4. New Warthog HOTAS $352.00 @ Amazon It says in stock by May 27.
  5. The reflections in that Jug are amazing. If you look near the pase on the port and starboard sides you can see the distortion close to the frame.
  6. This is exactly the photo was thinking of... As you can see the reflection is mirror like. As I said... I actually like that feature.. I hope we can still achieve it to some degree....
  7. I was wondering the same thing. I actually like both looks and think that both were used during the war. I have a picture of a aircrewman polishing the side of a 332nd P-51 and his reflection was clearly visible... liken mirrored surface. Inhope that both can be achieved.
  8. One of the things that really made the original IL2 so unique.. was the ability to customize the faces of pilots. In my opinion this , while a seemingly mionor thing .. would be great if it could be implemented into this sim. I know it is doable in DCS.. the process is much more tedious than in IL2 though because the pilot model is different and more detailed and it takes more to line up the image so that it looks realistic.. but it is doable.. I have no idea what it would take or how problematic it would be in GB .. and I also realize that it would be a low priority given all the other great things that are going on .. but it would be great IF ... ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. I have no info but i would not be surprised if one of the as yet unannounced collector planes was a Zeke.. or a Grumman ...
  10. This is unacceptable. Look guys... The sound is what it is.. If you cannot discuss issues you have with the sound or anything else.. without this kind of rhetoric.. then don't post here.
  11. Oh wow... I am so sorry to hear this..
  12. Those were the days.. I haven't spoken to Patches in a few months .. but the last time i did he was doing OK .. Papy, Worf, Obsidian, Cherokee, Merlin are all doing OK as far as I know.. You still pop into my head occasionally when I use photoshop.. Although I haven't made any skins in a while.. I think the last one io did was my own P-40 .. I agree... I remember when you had to wait to get in because HL was so packed.. Jiri had to bump up the capacity a few times.. I have always been Bearcat ... I had a 99 at the end of my name on UBI .. and a 99th_ at the front on Hyperlobby .. The IL2 community was actually my first online community to speak of.. I look at some of these names here .. and it amazes me that I have been talking to some of you folks for 17 years... I came to IL2 in 2002 .. I bought the big box original after I upgraded my rig for CFS 3 .. I came to UBI and was immediately taken with the whole atmosphere.. When I started the 99th I used Jason's 777 AVG and the BPs as kind of a template for the website ... after the guys came over from CFS the rest was history.. I still have IL2 on my HD .. I just don't have much time to fly much at all these days between the life changes and the music.. but I am caught up with IL2GB.. except for FC and TC ... and I still will most likely get them for S&Gs once my situation settles down a bit.. and I am still waiting for that Pony .. It is really great to see this community and what it has turned into 7 years .. wow .. 7 years down the road.. The early days of IL2GB were very ... tumultuous.. but I am glad that things have settled down and that this sim is shaping up like many knew from the jump that it would..

    I am sure that most folks here share the sentiment and hope/pray for the best to the friends and families of the victims in this heart wrenching difficult time. I have edited out some of the more ... inflammatory comments. Lets keep political discussion out of this please.
