Re: Welcome Guests.

No Eddie - I said that some of you guys fly more regularly than I do but I didn't know whether you used comms or maybe even the public Discord servers - just a minor misunderstanding. I probably didn't explain it well.

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Hi Nummy,

If that's the goal then this will likely be a good option.

One thought - that motherboard will support a SATA M2 drive - if you were to get a 500GB M2 and fit that instead of the 6TB Barracuda it would make all the cabling a lot simpler and still be more than adequate for IL2

Re: Advice Please: Nummy Hunkered In, Getting Ready to Blow Cash on good Sim Computer

Sorry, Nummy. I'm not up to date with which AMD graphics cards are good or not for the game. Likewise I don't usually look at Ryzen for a gaming PC. Much of that is probably age-old bias, and I did use a Ryzen 7 in the Ops Server I just built. The base clock on the Ryzen chip is 3.2GHz, which is ok,...

Re: Tank gunnery range - single player mission

I can swap out the Panther for a Panzer mark III for you Eddie - if you like.

Otherwise yes, it requires TC.

Tank gunnery range - single player mission

I've created a single player tank range mission so that folks can practice gunnery with the German Zeiss sites. Targets will spawn in at between 500 and 2500m in groups of 4. Once each group is dead a message will appear in the game and then next group will spawn shortly. Each group will consist of ...

I don't recommend playing IL2 over wireless - I would always recommend using a cable to connect the PC to your router.

Re: Info on recent stress test mission

Reggie While it is certainly true that the Luftwaffe was on the decline late in 1944, they were not quite yet the spent force that they would become after the decimation of Operation Bodenplatte. Indeed, whenever possible they would still try to operate in Gruppe or even Geschwader strength in orde...

Info on recent stress test mission

Gosho was asking what the recent stress test was about and what it may mean for future missions, so I thought that I would try and explain what I'm doing, what I'm trying to achieve and how I'm attempting to get there, all without (hopefully) boring you too much. The test itself was to see whether r...

Re: New and revised mission groups

I've just been looking at the groups that Prang used for his mission on Sunday and they have fewer 'moving parts' than mine do for getting aircraft to go home if one of a pair is damaged. I'll work these into a couple of variants and send them out for use instead of my ones.
