    It freaked me out when I realized that that was Batman. That P-51 looks GREAT!

    RIP FA_Monguse

    Ralph "FA_Monguse" Gimenez passed away yesterday morning as a result of complications during chemo for lung cancer. I thought about posting this in another forum.. but I decided to post it here.. I know Guse was not an active member of this forum or this community .. but he was a huge part of the IL2 family and many of the old timers here will remember him .. and be saddened by his passing. It amazes me that almost two decades later .. the IL2 community is still growing and going strong and has morphed into this three legged stool that it has become.. The first time I saw Jason he was heading up the 777 AVG.. in fact when I went to built the first website for the 99th back in 03 .. I used his site as a guide.. and here we are today with this jewel of a sim. Guse... you will be missed by many ... I am certain that I do not speak solely for myself when I extend my heartfelt prayers and condolences to his famiuly and all those who loved and respected him during this trying time.. ~!Salute!

  3. That's your story? It probably would have been an even far less pleasant time had things gone the other way .. WW2 happened for a lot of reasons ..... this post borders on apologist revisionism .. Let's just not go there at all ok or your posts will be removed if they continue down that direction.

    No Cockpit?

    I never understood why this option was so offensive to people.. The way it was done in IL2 was perfectly done as a server side setting.. Exactly Again.. why the derision.. as an option it would only serve the sim. Exactly .. I doubt that .. The original IL2 is to this date the greatest overall flight sim ever made as far as what it does and the way it does it. There are newer ones of course that do a lot more ... better.. but pound for pound IL2 is the single greatest WWII flight sim of all time... in my opinion o course..

    Finding IL-2 BoX

    This. It has always been this way. Even back in the day. It was like that then.. It has been like that for some time now.

    IL2 needs better DL service speed

    His answer was not as nasty as yours. Chillax man. It's all good. Glad it worked out.

    Flight-Sim Expo 2018 Update and Special Thanks!

    P-51D and P-47D variants.

    This is one of the best summations of why much of the brohuha over FMs , DMs and such is just nonsense. Just enjoy the sim... and use it as it is.. In the real world that is what you would have to do.
