  3. What a night !!! Like stepping into a yellow jackets nest, and I did get stung a few times to say the least !!! This for me was an interesting change from our regular missions and was very intrumental in honing my skills during a true furball . Situational awareness is and has been so important but I learned last night I was dilinquent in checking my six more often. Also found not to fly straight and level too long ( not hard to do in the DR1 !!) . I still need to learn the habits of the DR1 much better and am going to work on that. So, for me this mission was really gr

  4. Next week's mission is a high altitude bombing mission (5K, actually more of a medium height really) on Adler Airbase. Gold Flight of course will be the stars of this mission and Red and Blue must give them good support to accomplish the mission. I might advise a common TS channel this week but the final decision is of course up to the flight leads. One feature of this mission is Beacon Navigation. While not necessary the theme of the mission is that engineers have tuned the He111 bacons to follow a reverse beam course to the first waypoint. If they successfully reach this way

  5. At the risk of bodily harm befalling me, I really feel the need to revisit our squadron comms setup. Last night was a prime example of why TS is not where we need it to be. Red flight was dropping bombs ON THE SAME TARGET as blue AND gold, there was absolutely no scene of action coordination going on. Red stayed on Red channel, Blue stayed on Blue, and Gold on Gold. Great if the flights are on separate missions in separate geographic locations, however, last night clearly this was not the case. Sandy did a good job of Red flight coord (as a good lead SHOULD do), but I heard very

  7. You guys are all so swell to me I thought you might like an extra place to fool with the canvas crafts. I have my server running as World War 1FC-Roadhouse same fishy password. There are two practice arenas that provide lots of pick a fight areas, a obstical course, bomb and strafe area with high alt. bomber launch, balloons, ships, and a grudge match area for PVP it offers four coalations with all planes so a last man standing (flying) is possible. Watch for the CO driving around the base he is a butt head. Also is my famous (not really) furball arena BAD NEIGHBORS so if y

I will be more than happy to host next Sunday not sure what mission yet but I have a few to choose from , Not sure of our turnout either but I will be there and flying some of the missions on central is cool in a way because I never have lol. Thanks for welcoming me to fly along with you all. S

  9. Much ado over nothing, I must have woken up with a severe case of dumbassedness (yes, it's a real thing, not just a Wing Walkers thing) this morning. While I wasn't seeing the expected inputs on X and Y, all I could see in the DIviewer was the Z rotation which is actually the left/right rudder rotation. I re-calibrated the Crosswinds and everything is as it should be. So it's a note to self, check, then double check before sending out panicky cries for help.

  10. Version 2 works perfectly with lots of clearance. Now I just need to head to the hardware store to find some attaching hardware. I am hoping to find a stud post I can use with wingnuts instead of just using screws. Anyone who wants one just let me know.

  12. Good Day WW, Well we are set to host on Sunday night the 14th at 6 pm, we are looking forward to it. I don't think we have ever had more than 10 on the server so I am praying it runs ok, but finding out is important. The Domination mission has been made a little harder it's probably the biggest stretch in mission building I have attempted. The mission starts on the mud and is all about the ground war covering your bombers and attacking there's is the key to moving the lines, each line has 14 objects , MG will trigger by damage but field guns must be destroyed. 12 of 14 will make the

  14. Actually... Loading Red that heavily and forcing them to escort seems like a bad idea. We're either losing our bomb loads early for no gain, or we're getting killed by mediocre enemy. I'd rather see red go lower alt, highest possible speed, hit and run on enemy flak positions around the target. Will need another, lower, recon run to pin point flak locations.

  15. So I am reaching the end of what I can find that is original and also historical in the Kuban campaign. I am currently working on Kuban 9 (which means only 2 more missions to fly) and I am not sure I have a plan for any Kuban 10 other than the massive furball April-May 1943 was in the actual battle. K9 is a start in that direction and if I continue K10 would be that on steroids. Or maybe for K10 I will open the Russian side to live Opfor pilots to simulate a Russian aces like Pokryshkin who was an extremely lethal enemy and also changed the tactics of the VVS that led to a shift in power in

  16. I've found the evaluation to be bias towards SRS without properly vetting the different options available in TS. In real life I've run operations, evaluating many software/program solutions to best fit the needs of the company and employees. Created independent DB solutions to bridge the gaps where software solutions were not available. Trained everyone on the new systems. All of it based on the factual pros/cons evaluations of the different solutions, longevity and support for any solutions, etc. But there was no voting system in the company just like the military. This is how we're doing it.

  17. Diz, while this discussion continues, you can opt to create a profile to change channels in Teamspeak. Works fine. In fact I'm going to use my new profile which will be switching to any channel and having one whisper setup to whisper to all channels at the same time.(takes 6 buttons) I also made a profile that only uses (3 buttons), to switch channels via next/prev and one button for global whisper to all channels. Depending on how creative you get and how many buttons you have available, you might setup a next/prev channel switcher, then a whisper for each channel so no matter whic

  20. I could see where after an intense session you might get heel burns (hard to explain to the missus) and/or over the long haul ending up with distinct grooves cut in the hardwood from your callused up heels (even harder to explain the grooves to the missus). I don't need to worry about that particular problem, never gets warm enough to not have to wear socks So after a bit over a week using the combat pedals the consensus is "I like 'em". I feel that I have more control over the inputs, heel resting on the floor, hardly any movement for the majority of instances, just a slight push of th

  21. Hey all , Due to lack of particapation and interest I have decided to abandon the 20th project and go back to solo, With the Damage model as it is there is not alot of interest in flying Entente balsa planes and I dont blame anyone for that just a look at the numbers joining the central squads says it all and Flugpark is starting to resemble War Grounds IN ROF. Sometimes we just have to make our own fun....with that said I still plan to host every other Sunday if thats ok with the WW , I am hoping we can use your TS3 as I do not have that running ATM.

  24. So... my gal Meghan is a 'work-from-home' lady and the walls were closing in on her. Minnesota recently opened up some public venues (restaurants, bars, etc) for limited seating, with more available if you use outdoor accommodations. Hmm. Lets look at that again. February. Minnesota. Outdoors. I'm guessing you wouldn't expect a lot of takers for that little exercise. Except... It's Minnesota. We've got this. Add into the mix that we've been craving the noise of people, and music, and general socialization. So, our plan was to attend a favorite local pub (the Circle Inn

  28. Another great performance by the WW crew. All objectives completed, very low casualties. The landing craft attack was a recreation of an actual event. On Feb 4th 1943 800 Soviet Marines landed near Myshako after a separate failed attempt farther North the previous night. The 800 men who landed took the field and setup a defensive line that was never broken, suffering heavy losses after months of holding out until the Germans were thrown out of the Taman Peninsula. The Night Witches also operated in this sector, and while their tactics made them pretty much immune to reprisal attac

  30. A couple tips : - from both Duck and I on the M2 drives, those Samsung Evo Plus drives can be problematic. I had to exchange one, and Duck's had nothing but issues with his. I have a Crucial 1tb M2-280 drive for my OS drive, it's worked perfectly since day one, but is just a fraction slower than my Samsung Evo Plus. But my first Evo Plus didn't work at all, and required time for a replacement to show up. TLDR: Samsung Evo drives are fast, but unreliable IMO. EDIT: BIG TIP HERE : - ensure the M2 drive placement is accessible without having to tear apart your machine, I suggest placeme

  31. Glad this helped Diz and thanks for validating the problem in better detail than me !!! What you described was exactly the same thing that was happening to me ( as said, you did a better job describing the problem ). Yep, I believe when there is an update for IL-2 this script may be overwritten unless you change the file to " read only ". So , I also saved my " current map " file for future use . Who knows, maybe the IL-2 team will correct this at sometime since it was addressed on the IL-2 forum.

  32. definitley be careful wearing the glasses with the VR until you get the lenses. With everything nice and tight I could not tell that my glasses were touching the Oculus lenses and I started to get scratching. Definitely worth buying the lenses to avoid that. The blue lense is to protect you eyes? Guessing it is a good idea. Mine came from Poland and took forever to come. PS....I decided to buy my son in law the Quest 2. A more generous gift than normal by me (by a lot), but he is a gamer and one of those guys that when you ask him what he wants for his birthday and christmas he neve

  36. Just my 2 cents but I like the big room with lots of chatter. It may not be mil-spec and efficient but I get to know my fellow WW's better and share the camaraderie in a big channel. The last few events have been a bit sterile for me, I like to know what is going down in the other flights as it is happening. I know with so many players showing up to play it is getting unwieldy but as long as I have been with the WW's we have always walked the fine line between being an all out simulation group and a bunch of blokes hanging out blowing stuff up and laughing about it. Not that I will put

  37. S! @WWDarkdiz, On looking for the option to change the track-file recording length, I simply cannot find it now, nor any mention of that option in the IL-2 user manual. There's no indication of file-size alternative in the startup.cfg file either. I know senility can be a thing, but I can swear that at one point you could set the desired recording size (so that the recorded .trk file and it's associated folder wouldn't fill up a drive if the sim was left open but unattended.) Either I'm completely mistaken on that option ever having been available, or it was for IL2-1946 or RoF or on

  38. No issues, I looked too, no joy. I also seem to recall something that extends max size of trk files, or maybe it was someone in the forums complaining that they were too small, there was no way to increase the size, and the game gives no indication of when they stop.

  40. Griph, I do hope you come out of this wintry mess okay. There's a lot of yakking up here in Minnesota about "how can they be so un-prepared for winter down there?" ... Well, I lived in Richmond, Va for many years, and I saw first-hand why: they so rarely have to deal with a serious freeze that it makes little sense to build for it. And not just homes, but business and infrastructure isn't built to withstand arctic-ish temps if those temps don't happen every year. It's cost prohibitive when not necessary annually. That does mean on those "once in a century" freeze events that major issues arise

  43. I got a chance to watch your tracks Sandman, wow, you tore up the gun positions. I was also glad to see you got the AAA Battery with extra boom, simulating an ammo storage explosion. I was also able to get a couple of pics from the Paradrop mission when they flew close enough to be part of your trk file. I don't suppose any one got a trk of what I called in the Mission Builder, the "Red Arrow Group", diving into the tank battlefield with 8 Sturmos and 8 fighters in an arrow formation? Now for the bad news. With this video proof of infraction half the squad is being written up for
