  1. Appreciate the head's-up. *Topic moved to the IL-2 Ready Room public area.
  2. I like it when I don't have to do things, because they're already done. https://www.wingwalkers.org/forum/171-mission-central/
  3. Not sure how I may end up. I simply know my current big-ass-desk thing is falling apart and is far too big and heavy. Looking to down-size and modernize, and not sure if I want a dedicated sim-pit or (far more likely) something that is more desk than sim-pit. I still like the idea of flying my sims with a stick where the stick is supposed to be. And thus, a bit of extension may be necessary.
  4. Half the cost, maybe a bit more usable for general use with a solid sim-station additional life... https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/fredde-desk-black-50219044/
  5. First off, gotta have a sim cockpit, so... https://www.volairsim.com/
  6. Stumbled across this while looking for other stuff. Putting it here for future reference... https://warthog-extensions-by-sahaj.com
  7. I can agree with what Griph says. I like my simulated combat arenas to be specific to a given time frame, and/or a given piece of terrain. Example: The Crimea area would be wonderful for a summer of '42 battlefield. Germans using 109 F4's and 109 G2's, Ju-87's and Bf-110s. Sprinkle in some Ju-52's and it's good. Russian side: I-16's, LaGG-3's, MiG-3's, a couple Yak-1's. Add some early single-seat IL-2's and a few early Pe-2's for the Russian offensive team. Set all the Russian AI to novice, and have them out-number the Germans 3 or 4 to 1. If flying Russian, set German AI to Veteran, and pray you don't find Graf and the rest of the Karaya Staffel on your six. Now you have an interesting, period and landscape specific battle that can be won by either side, but is heavily weighted (as in real life) to the Germans. Move the timing forward a year to the spring of '43. Introduce for the Germans: 109 G6's, some Italian MC-202's, late model 110's, Stukas with 37mm canons, Ju-88's, 190 A3's, a couple of those weird two-engine attack planes. For the Russians: La-5's, La-5FN's, and a good number of each Yak-1, Yak-7, Spitfire MkV, P-40M, P-39D. Bombers will be A-20's, later Il-2's with rear gunners and later Pe-2's. Keep the same 3 or 4 to 1 ratio, but make Russian AI average, and German AI average. The German Experten may still score big, but the German losses will be even bigger. Again, very closely historic ... but in simulation, things can turn out differently than in real life.
  8. There's no church in sight, so ambulances are the next best targets for Red. Duh. 🤣
  9. Just want to add my two cents in to say how much I enjoyed the mission last night. While the cloud cover in the mountains provided some interesting and scary flying at times,it was still pretty fun to get there and realize that the target was not in a valley but on top of a mountain, quite a place to put a factory!
  10. A suspected Covid-19 male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student female nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath. "Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?" Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet." He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?" Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other. She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine." The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very, very, closely: "Are - my - test - results - back?" 😉
