    The cat just cost me £50...

    Mine cost me about $1,000 worth of medical tests to conclusively determine that he was OK.
  2. Also note that you can change the speed at which the views change, in your camera settings. That way you can take a very quick peek.

    The K-4 Isn't Special

    War is most certainly Hell.

    The Game Screenshot Thread

    Nice shots! Sorry to hear of your falling out with Aerosoft. I never had to deal with anything like that...but then again except for maybe one or two cases where I really outdid myself I don't suspect there was ever much danger of passing my stuff off as professional material, LOL. What did bother me was having weirdos email me with demands, telling me exactly what to do, complaining about choices I had made etc. Flight sims attract a lot of crazy people for some reason.

    The Game Screenshot Thread

    Looks great, man...which 757/Sim version is this? I painted the old QW 757 for FSX until my eyes fell out of my head (uploaded as "Matt Smith" on Flightsim/Avsim)..totally customized paint kits, bump maps, redearching obscure details about converted freighters, you name it. TBH I kind of burned myself out on painting and haven't done anything substantial in a few years LOL. Now that I've migrated to P3dv4 (IL2 BoX spoiled me to where I couldn't deal with FSX anymore) my old work is out the window. Flying the Aerosoft A320 series exclusively until I can decide which other models I really want to buy or buy again. I'd had quite a fleet going for FSX but I'll need to be more selective going forward 😎

    You know you are addicted to il2 when.......

    Because you are mentally deranged like the rest of us 🤣 Seriously though, there would be so many smoking wrecks on the side of the road if my windshield cannon was real...

    Vapour trails from aircraft in winter

    Sorry for the copypasta LOL, the part of it that was news to me was how you can get a contrail at higher temps at lower alts due to moisture in the air. Which "should" have been obvious to me to begin with 🤣

    Vapour trails from aircraft in winter

    Contrails...water vapor in the exhaust condenses and then flash freezes when it hits the cold air. From Wikipedia: The main products of hydrocarbon fuelcombustion are carbon dioxide and water vapor. At high altitudes this water vapor emerges into a cold environment, and the local increase in water vapor can raise the relative humidity of the air past saturation point. The vapor then condenses into tiny water droplets which freeze if the temperature is low enough. These millions of tiny water droplets and/or ice crystals form the contrails. The time taken for the vapor to cool enough to condense accounts for the contrail forming some distance behind the aircraft. At high altitudes, supercooled water vapor requires a trigger to encourage deposition or condensation. The exhaust particles in the aircraft's exhaust act as this trigger, causing the trapped vapor to condense rapidly. Exhaust contrails usually form at high altitudes; usually above 8,000 m (26,000 ft), where the air temperature is below −36.5 °C(−34 °F). They can also form closer to the ground when the air is cold and moist.

    Beware the enemy in your own cockpit!

    LOL I feel your pain...my cat Antonio (aka Tony, aka Tony Baloney, aka Mr. Baloney or just Mr. B) started tugging and then gnawing on my headset cord before I set him straight!

    Yeah, well I'll believe THAT when somebody posts the Altitude/Firepower curves!!1!

    Books - What are you reading?

    I haven't read the Hornblower books yet, but I recall reading a comparison online saying that O'Brian does a better job of putting the reader in that "world" with all the details etc. But the premise is the same, if you like sea stories from the Napoleonic era and sailing ships you will love it. The Odd Couple bromance between Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin alone is worth the price of admission. There is a ton of subtle humor, particularly verbal gaffes or other miscues on Jack's part...he is a much more likeable and interesting character in the books than in the movie. I recommend giving the first book a shot...commit yourself to reading it all the way through before you make up your mind! I can't believe some of the chow back then...and the constant drinking LOL! A great reference you may be aware of is called "A Sea of Words"...fantastic accompaniment to the series.

    Books - What are you reading?

    I've started reading the 20.5 volume Master & Commander series again from the beginning. First time through was a little over ten years ago. I've just finished the first book...reading about the characters again is like catching up with old friends. I was lucky enough to sail a tall ship for a couple of summers in my much younger days so this series really takes me back to my happy place. Or better said, a place where things make sense to me. I recommend them to anyone, don't let the nautical jargon or historical minutiae turn you off...plenty of resources and references on the internet now.

    Turning Tank Turret in Commander View?

    My thinking is to have the Commander be vulnerable to threats while unbuttoned.
