    Hello All

    OK statrep, got Great Battles Normandy. Alas, next hurdle, my trusted warthog throttle doesn't show anymore in W10...

    Hmm, well, that is important too.
  6. "Things you do for loveee... Sorry, money, I meant money. Here is the probe and drogue demonstrator for the F-16 CFTs. For some space reserved for fuel, the starboard CFT houses the probe to allow the Falcon to refuel from probe-drogue tankers. This was done ton win the Indian MMRCA where India needed this type of refuelling due to its Midas fleet. The Falcon also retained the regular receptacle for boom tankers."

  9. Yep, I certainly did Crash! How did you come across it? Fun fact: I can see the church tower where this was taken, from my house (It's really close... lol) and the two far away big block buildings in the center of this image is where I work - well, them buildings are gone, but that's where my job is... not that I sit in the open air, no, there's a different building now, much smaller, and nowadays quite old as well. Come to think of it, the building where I work now is behind that big one in the image that has been demolished in the meantime. I'm out now.. . off to da pub!

    A fast graphics card will also help with "photography" Know what I mean? nudge nudge

    No intention to use VR either now or in the foreseeable, so it's all about frames and eyecandy on the screen. I'm not too worried about bottlenecking, my 9700K still has some decent oomph and my RAM is decent too.
  12. Very nice Dear Friends, In today’s DD we see images of the AR-234 in some new skins and geometry of the IAR-80/81 cockpit. We also see the implementation of WWII style barrage balloons which can be used to protect ships and ground targets. These balloons can be towed by ships, winched up and down and if the wire is hit hard enough and severed the balloon will fly away. If the Luftwaffe ever does reach the invasion fleet watch out for these new obstacles! Our AR 234 B-2 jet bomber is nearing its final stages of development and we have some cool skins to show you today. What a great looking aircraft. The IAR-80/81 Collector Plane is also making progress. The cockpit geometry is about done and ready for texturing. Looks like a very busy cockpit! Enjoy! The Sturmovik Team

    I think FT has a good point there regarding cpu. It doesn't matter what card I run I know my bottleneck is my i7 5820k cpu, it was the slowcoach in my system when using VR. Are you going to get the graphics card so that you can use VR now or are you making it future proof so that VR will be possible in the future? Getting the right combo of cpu and gpu is something to think about.

    I'm also considering other games eg DCS and MSFS, neither of which I can run with maxed settings on the 980

    I dont think that GBS uses a lot of graphics memory but I could well be wrong. I would ask the question on the GBS hardware forum. Good luck
  17. What he said! I do think that when times are tough, it is good to have something to do that completely gets you away from the real world.

    If your CPU can handle the faster one, go for the faster one. Meaning: Try and figure out where the bottleneck will be when getting the card with more memory, and if it is the card (and not the CPU/Memory) then go for the faster one (Dunno how to do that excactly, but there was a site that might be able to show you?) Besides that scientific approach: if you're only on 1080p, go for the cheapest option. My 1080ti 12GB runs GBS and DCS fine on 1080p. DCS maybe not on all full details, but I do not care, don't have time or braincells to spare to look around how nice everything looks whilst trying to keep them birds in the air, and navigating and weapons systems and stuff... )

    So with the mining bubble bursting and GPU prices starting to get a bit more sensible - I'm looking an upgrade to my venerable 980Ti which thankfully has soldiered on through the recent shenanigans in the marketplace. Question is, what should I go for - given that I can only game at 1080p (space prevents me having anything larger) do I need more memory or a faster card? As I see it at the moment the 3060 is nearly in budget, so do I get the regular card with 12GB of vram or the significantly faster Ti version with 25% more cores than the standard card but only 8GB? I mean I'm clear on which is the more capable card at the top end, but for my much more modest requirements??? Why do you guys think?
  21. Sorry Sid, there's just too much going on to be able to commit as much as I'd like. There's a whole raft of RL issues which conspire to use up my available time, energy and resources to the point where I just lose the urge to drag all the gear out and get set up to fly - in fact, the last time I picked up a joystick was when you and I spent a couple of hours in MSFS a month ago and before that, I can't even remember. Even the rig is in bits at the moment as I had started to do some upgrades which didn't happen and I've not even put the bloody thing back together - the parts are under a dustsheet here in a corner of the office as I speak. That said, the Dogz have been a central part of my life since that chance meeting in the Red Lion back in 2006 so I will do my best to get back involved again. N

    Hello All

    🙂 sounds good! This afternoon managed to get my setup up and running again, need some (! 🙄) days to get to hang of everything again and then I'll jump into the deep water... thanks!
