    Had business in LA, visited Daughter #2 there, took the train to San Diego to visit Daughter #1 Revisited parts of LA that used to be business only that is now full of people living downtown, shopping, eating, walking their dogs, amazing how things can change in 15 years ( still Urban, homeless people, stinky alleys, but it is changing a lot) still cant beat the ocean views in San Diego

    Doing some knocking around on the Il2 forum and it looks like Vanderstock updated his easy mission generator to include both the Rhineland and Arras. This means many more COOP missions available to us on Maps from the right eras. Here is the control panel and a sample France versus Germany. He does a nice job of making sure the sortie's from each side overlap. Going to stay focused on the campaign right now, but will get some Flying Circus Coop's set up in the future.

    So we have the template and I've been hard at making a first attempt. Still a wip, no alpha layer added yet to emphasize the aluminum skin, still have tweaking to do. Also not certain I will go with this one, have a couple of other ideas to explore.

    Time permitting, will try and have a happy medium ready. Want to fly the new map, so Axis will fly from Antwerp, and go ship hunting around the North Sea. All the new planes will be in there to greet us....might as well find out what it is like to fly against all this stuff. Will find a spot to put a USSR base (it's not Russia any more) for those who want to fly OpFor. If Zed/Wood figure out how to get this rearm etc stuff working, want to try that out also.

    Just make sure it’s on his arm, and not on his lower back. The thought of either a WingWalkers or JG1 tramp stamp makes me a wee bit nauseous. 😉

    Starting this thread because I am targeting the coming Black Friday to start pulling together components for a "new build". I have only built one machine and it was specifically to fly Rise of Flight. I built my current machine in May of 2009! Still running on Windows XP and many graphics card and memory upgrades later, it still runs amazingly well all things considered. This latest patch in BOS, having to crank down some of the graphic settings, made me think that it is time. Will be posting the proposed build to get some input. The goal is to balance the processor, memory, storage and graphics card to get a neat and tidy fast build. I am sure I will spend over $1,000 but under $2,000.....$1,500 would be a nice sweet spot.

    This is a six episode mini-series. Episode One felt like “The Pacific” ....such a stark landscape. The ad is a little cheesy, but the series is really well done.

    We just turned on 3.201b hotfix that addresses the following problems: 1. The cooperative mode works now. 2. Clicking the Spectate button before airfields finished loading in Dogfight multiplayer won't cause a problem. 3. 'Simplified physiology' option is turned OFF at Normal difficulty level (so all fatigue effects are working at this difficulty level).4. A bug that could trigger aircraft repair anywhere, even during a flight, after leaving a service area has been fixed. 5. The trimmer axis inertia has been removed when adjusting it using the keyboard or joystick keys. 6. The time it takes to adjust the pitch trim from the lowest to the highest position or vice versa on the Yak-7b has been increased from 5 to 8 seconds to correspond to the other Yak fighter models. 7. Coolant vapor and fuel leaks are no longer visible at great distances. 8. Technochat message telling that a pilot is conscious again won't be displayed if he is dead already. 9. The djustable stabilizer position message in technochat is displayed according to aviation standard (pitch up is negative and pitch down is positive). 10. Emergency canopy jettison command will be ignored during repairs in the service area. 11. Mouse controls: a plane controlled by a pilot who lost consciousness won't continue turning to the last direction set before the loss of consciousness. 12. Bf 110 E-2 gunsight glass has been corrected. 13. P-51D-15 rearview mirror shows correctly when damaged. 14. Fokker D.VII anemometer correctly disappears when its wing is lost. 15. Graphical error in the north part of the Rheinland map has been corrected. 16. Multiplayer statistics work correctly for different coalitions. 17. QMB mode works correctly for customers who have only Flying Circus.

    We're not the only ones experiencing it. From the little bit of digging I did it seems the in game setting for vsync may be the culprit. I'm gonna goof around with it tonight and see if I can smooth things out. One post in there was about the Prokhorovka map not running as smoothly as others. Apparently that map is super detailed. Anyways. https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/54334-in-game-vsync-causing-mega-stutters/

    hmmm...i never really saw any of that last nite.... but then, I was blacked out for pretty much most the flight..

    This is of course dependent on whether or not we get an update. If we do, am sure everyone wants to have the new planes to fly. If not, would like to consider running an Axis mission. Meeting nite to boot....

    I attacked a ground Target with two 2000lbs. Came in too fast and missed the Target by 100 yards and still wiped them off the face of the planet!! I'm in love with that payload!!

    Downloading it works better. Just sayin'. Took the P-38 for a ride, went nose to against an He-111. Got badly wounded and gained a fuel leak on the first pass. But she looks cool...

    Folks, I've updated Base WW skins for both versions of the FE2B and HalberstadtCL2. They are not in the DL area yet (need to get screenshots and stuff), but they are available in the FTP vault area, here https://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/wwskins/GreatBattles I'll update the DL area as soon as I get screenshots, and also provide working WW .PST templates.

    232 Hello everybody, The next update 3.201 will be released really soon. In the previous Dev Diaries, we told what it will bring for Bodenplatte, but it will also contain many improvements for other projects as well. Let's start with Tank Crew. The first important feature (not only for tanks, but it is especially important for them) is the new occlusion system for object markers. Now ground and aerial object markers will be occluded by other moving objects, cockpit elements, hills, trees buildings, etc. It should really pump up the tension of battle even in the 'markers on' mode. Second, we have changed the way a turret (or closed sights MGs like bow MG-34) is steered on all tanks, now it moves like on M4A2 before and there is a special overlay indicator showing the set turret direction. In addition, all the Tank Crew player controllable tanks now have improved engine startup procedures, both visually and audibly. Pz. IV and M4 have autonomous turret traverse mode working with effects and animations. The tanks handling has been improved. Many of them have their interiors and some exterior details updated. Two historical campaigns set near Prokhorovka designed by Alexander Timoshokov and Victor Sechnoy are finished and their beta testing should start next week along with the commander interface for controlling the crew and an entire platoon. To create correct mission scenarios, a lot of effort has been put into research - just their briefings have enough text to fill up 40 book pages. Ground AI improvements required a lot of time as well. We plan to release these campaigns to all Tank Crew owners in October. Now onto Flying Circus. The coming update will include the Arras area map (1918). The cities, towns, and airfields recreate the atmosphere of the era believably. The designers paid special attention to smaller details in the airfield buildings. The towns have trade squares, suburban blocks and more detailed factory areas. There are barbed wire and dugouts on no-mans-land. Together with the latest technologies available in IL-2 engine, the new Arras map will give the aviators of the Great War the next level of immersive flight and dogfights above the Western Front positions. Returning to Bodenplatte, we're glad to report that we have found the means of increasing visual quality of Tempest Mk.V even more. Since the end of Summer, our artists worked on the texturing and materials and you can see the result on these screenshots. The aircraft released in the previous TOWs also gets attention - Battle of Stalingrad owners will see IL-2 mod. 1942 and Bf 109 G-2 skins updated to 4K quality thanks to Martin =ICDP= Catney and Francisco =BlackHellHound1= Bindraban. But not only visuals are being upgraded for our previous projects - we're also working on some sound improvements. For instance, DB-601 and BD-605 engine sounds installed on Bf-109s and Bf-110s will become more realistic in 3.201. file 2019-09-27, 4 05 06 pm file 2019-09-27, 4 05 32 pm file 2019-09-27, 4 05 17 pm

    I've worried about this guy for quite a while. He has way more money than sense.

    I watched a few of the youtubes on Draco, including his accident video. Ego and getthereitus claims another one. If he waited an hour he would have been fine. Guy's ego didn't want to face the airfield by aborting/postponing due to weather. That plane should have even been started up at that point, let alone on the runway. Glad no one was hurt other than the wife's broken nail, the pilot's scraped elbow and bruised ego. I agree with all the comments above. Nice that he owned it, but what else would he have said? Guy loses all credibility with me (like that matters) due to the fact he wasn't alone. You want to go compete in some reckless STOL comps? Fine, whatever, have fun. But the second you have passengers aboard, I'd argue that their safety becomes top priority, not the pilot's ego -even in big bad draco.

    I like taking the F-15 for a cruise down the Vegas strip, just high enough to clear the power lines. Love to think of people flipping out in the hotels as I zip by *under* them at .9 mach.

    Thanks, and yes on the post processing. I believe the Warthog shots are just screenshots with nothing done to them, but they’re two years old, and I barely remember what I had for breakfast. The F-15 shots are using a combination of Photoshop and Lightroom. I changed the contrast and bloom, and added a vignette border.

    I posted the official invite over at JG1. Would suggest that WW's register over there if you aren't all ready. Will post their TS as well when the time is right. We will stay on our own comm's but nice to be a good neighbor and go visit after we fly. https://forum.jg1.org/topic/7198-rule-the-skies-campaign-starts-oct-1st/

    Wish I could help you Les, but I don't use the TARGET software. Does it work without setting it up through TARGET? I know that is just a workaround, but that will be able to tell us if this is a software or hardware issue.

    open to suggestions, but all I have for tonight is same mission we did last week. Will try and make up some targets for gold so they do not know exactly where to go...

    understood. Trying to get a post ready for JG1's website and just wanted to make sure I knew how to do it. They have the same website software , but their permissions don't allow me to post files directly. Now that I uploaded the rule book and the schedule in our vault I can just give them links and it all will work.
