Re: New and revised mission groups

Just sent out a group for 3x Bf109 G14 to take off, go to a target, attack area for 10 mins then fly home and land. The planes seemed to fly in echelon right.

Prangster recently posted a group with destroyed buildings for the Rheinland map too.

I'll now be wandering over to Merlin's hut to see if he's set fire to anything else.

Carry on.
Tent, sir. Unusual of you to not notice that we've been under canvas for some time now......


Welcome Kolo. Hope you enjoy your time with us.

Re: VR hints and tips

The only thing to set up is the two zoom functions. By default these are configured to be on the 'Insert' (1.5x zoom) and 'Home' (5x zoom) keys, so the first set is to make sure that those are not configured to any other aircraft functions. There is also a 10x zoom function mapped to 'Page Up', but ...

Re: New and revised mission groups

I have a group that could generate random aircraft, it would just be a change to the ones I use for my practice map using activate instead of spawn so that they only fire the once. the trouble with that would be that if you want them to also have the ability to break off and return home, the extra l...

New and revised mission groups

Hey guys, Buns asked me to revise some of the regular mission groups to bring them up to date for the North West Europe theatre and in particular for the Bodenplatte expansion set. So far I've come up with the following: German: 4x Luftwaffe Fighters in two pairs. Logic is configured that they will ...

Re: New VR Rig

Some time ago I purchased an original series VKB Gladiator Pro. I really love that stick, despite the fact that one of the buttons has been a little problematic. In my view, it is ideal for VT use because as well as the buttons on the stick, it has a number of buttons on the base itself and many of ...

Re: Wot VR

Indeed. My only advice would be that with a 1060 card you may struggle a little on some of the more recent VR devices. It would certainly be enough for something like a Rift, but some of the more heavy duty recent ones will require something from the 20xx series. At that point it becomes a decision ...

Re: Feldwebel Scram leaves Kalach

Well done Scram. Looking forward to flying with you.

Skins for the next campaign have not been released just yet, but make sure that you have a La-5FN and a Pe-2 series 87 available for campaign start in September
