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

Recommended Posts

I just had a nice situation where I realised I am deformed by WW2 aviation and might have problem with IL2:

I am sitting in my job, happily updating the operating system, and the RAF WW2 siren starts screaming like the germans are comming. So I jump from my chair, sprint infront of the building, start searching for my Spitfire so I can get to the air as fast as possible and defend freedom and democracy. While outside, I find out that there are no Spitfires, nor airfield, airplanes are only in simulator I am currently working on and all this mess was because of some garbage from printer's used toner, which my boss tried to vacuum with vacuum that sounded like WW2 RAF siren. Man, I was so thrilled, and then let down.

Lol awesome...

 

Soon there will be holodecks. .... soon there will be holodecks... soon there will be....

 

We were all born in the wrong era..

Your success or failure of your IL2 sorties impacts your mood for the next half a day.

When you dream that you are in a dogfight, and your bedding the next morning shows just how intense the dogfight was  :huh:  :huh:

And even worse, when you dream the foe was your girlfriend ...  and at the end you shout - Salute! - That really becomes a mess of a bed !

I would also say: 

When every time you fly near by another plane, you can't resist to simulate an attack on it, with the "tatatata" on the radio...

Lol, so nice !!

 

Guys, we live in the best time ever! - We have PC where you can fly with those planes. We have virtual reality where you are even more inside those planes. And finaly... soon very soon will begin appear typical real airfields with real Yaks1b, Bf109 and Spitfires... and we all will spend our free times in those cockpits fighting against the enemy.

 

Because.... few years ago I was dreaming about virtual reality .... and it happend. So If I dream today about real airfields with real WW2 planes and something like optical shooting (laser? or holograms?) .... so one day it will become reality as well.

Lets enjoy flying just in the virtual cockpits...even this is awesome.

...when you're watching a cool youtube clip from the game (eg. this) and you keep twisting your head, expecting view in the video to change too.     ....And then you're unreasonably annoyed when it doesn't.

When you learn the Cyrillic alphabet and learn Russian well enough to be able to read and understand anything in the cockpits, and it leads to reading Russian literature in the original language, and to reading massive tomes on Russian history and culture. I'm sure that I'd sound really bad if I ever spoke Russian to a native speaker, but at least I can read things and understand them, and I know a lot more about Russia now and have read some great stories.

 

When you know more about Russian geography than everyone else, after deciding that you need to know more about the areas that you fly in the sim.

 

When you start recruiting people, who go on to become flight simmers as obsessed as you, though they had no interest before you got hold of them. I've recruited and trained half a dozen or so. Their wives and girlfriends ever after tend to give me the same look upon seeing me that my mother used to give me when she got a call from the principal when I was a kid in school.

When you yell "prop clear!" When starting your car..

When you're accelerating on the highway and you start to pull back on your steering wheel.......

When you open your canopy (car windows and sunroof) on final approach to your driveway...

When you make sure chocks are in place during walk-around before you leave your car...

When you look down and you're suprized you have a body!

- when you run to play IL2 immediately after unpacking presents on the Chrtismas Eve.

- when you are happy that each evening you can see the known players on the server. And you already know how each of them fly.

- when you can manage eat dinner with VR Headset on your head and simultaneously taking off.

 

- when the first words after coming into your job are about how many planes did you shoot down yeasterday evening. And how tough were the battles.

When your wife and the kids are out for some holidays while you stay at home for work, you tell them you'll miss them but secretly thinking of the WWII party you are giving to yourself.
Off to enjoy my brand new Bodenplatte stuff!!!
