  1. Yesterday
  2. That is funny Arjen ! Yes to all of the above depending on the mood , if I may expand upon your answer 🤣😂😂😂
  3. Ya no worries wasn't trying to change the world was just saying what I liked. No big deal
  4. We are aware of how discord can be both a communication channel and message thread however we have years of posting in these forums and it would take quite a lot to move us aay from it. Teamspeak also has the advantage of being able to whisper to different channels which I believe discord does not have. Download it, its free, I will the log in details again in a PM
  5. I think i might have seen them mentioned at some point however I was at work, I was hoping there was a discord aswell. I haven't used TeamSpeak in a very long time nor do i have it installed. I personally enjoy how easy it is to keep in communication outside of the pc with discord. I don't even know if i remember how to teamspeak its been so long lol
  6. We have Discord capability, but are stuck in our ways with TeamSpeak I take it you have been given the details?
  7. Now that's no weather to go fly in ... ! except maybe in a Swordfish..
  8. Pub closed down again so... yeah!
  9. I can definitely answer questions, anytime you need. I'm more than happy to help you guys out with anything I might bring to the table. As for programing I'm still learning how to make my tank move and getting used to the buttonology lol 🤣🤙 so as for the simulators limitations on program you will need to tell me what can and can't be done when that times comes. Do you guys use discord at all ? I found it works well for verbal and text communication but more so screen sharing if your trying to show someone something ?
  10. And there is MOAR Hello P-51 Lovers! We know you’ve been waiting patiently to see more of the P-51B, so today we show you what it looks like both inside and out! This new ‘Pony’ should be ready by the end of this month. It’s the Holiday Season and a time for giving, so there will likely be two updates in December! One with the new clouds and the DFWC.V and the other with the P-51B and maybe, just maybe new fuel systems and drop tanks for several Bf-109 variants. Of course, plans are subject to change pending testing. And as mentioned previously the Malcolm Hood has taken extra work to get it right, so that component is not ready to be shown yet. Without further delay… Enjoy!

    More help needed

    Hey @Pooka! Hope you are well. I think you need "External Free Camera at Player Plane" which by default is F2 F3 is "Flyby" and if crashed on the ground I guess you are not flying?... Will be great to hook up soon and have a chat. Hope this helps
  13. Salute I have just put the weather back to clear summer skies. Ref the location of the random Tigers, I may have moved them, or did I..... Also when on the range, you should now not get the message about Tigers being released. Friar
  14. Perhaps we need to have a session on tactics so I can program the AI to do things that a tank commander would do rather than just heading straight for the players position! I think we are going to get along very well....
  15. Haha I'm actually currently employed at the armoured school teaching new officer recruits on becoming tank troop commanders.

    More help needed

    I'm guessing I lost a settings in the cameras section. An example: I've been shot down, do a rough landing in a field, still alive. I used to be able to us my mouse, push down L button and scroll around the aircraft, look at it from different angles. I'm unable to look at whatever from different views. This all happens after tapping F3. Tracker works fine in a/c. Thanks for any ideas.
  17. It is always better to learn on the job "dont just sit there...get one up!" The sessions on a Saturday always start with us just messing about for 45 minutes or so either on the range on in the skirmish town, then at about 20:30 we will start the event, which are usually a dog fight so it means if we get killed we can re-spawn or people can join later on in the evening if they want.
  18. On recent Fridays myself and Fool Trottel used to go onto the public servers but then lock down finished and he went back to the pub on a Friday night. On Saturdays we tend to play as a group against AI either on a scenario I have built or using a generated mission. Myself and FT tend to multi-crew (me driving/commanding in Axis tanks and FT gunning. In T34 I drive and he guns / commands) Painless, Sid and Parts tend to share the same tank with each taking the role of driver, gunner and commander. Multi crewing is good fun, for some reason getting blown up with a mate seems more fun!
  19. I think we have our new tactical instructor ! 👍🏻
  20. Join in on Saturdays to see Multicrew and teamworking skills are getting better.
  21. Unfortunately my video game skills aren't on par with my real life skills LMAO 🤣 also I tend to be alot more braison in a simulator lol Its still gonna take me a bit to get comfortable with the sim. If you ever have questions on tactics or anything fire away. Do you guys roll out as a team ? Is there a few guys that play together on here ? Do you guys lone wolf or work as a troop ? Do you guys coop or play PvP ? I'm just wondering more so how you guys operate here.
  22. @DeadStikBillNo worries - I only just posted it!. As for being on line I will on today Friday 03/12 from 20:00 UK time and also on Saturday 04/12 from 20:00 UK time. If you are at a loose end.... we can make some stuff go Boom! Its pretty cool getting your take on how these tanks compare to the real thing, I am sure we ARE going to learn from you as well...
  23. Thanks fellas, @Friar sorry just seen your message this morning here. Some things I noticed that they represent pretty accuratly. Tank rock when you start and stop how it tilts forward and backwards. This is diffrent on every tank but it's a real thing and they simulate it pretty well. Now days we have stabilization on our guns so when going cross country the guns stays on target. We can turn it on and off, it's always on for us as it makes no sense fighting this yourself. They didn't have that on these old tanks and driving and watching the targets it's pretty damn accurate to real life. The acceleration is allot slower but I imagine it was back then. Feeling the gear shift and looking through the sights it's pretty accurate to real life. The only thing I seen that really is off and most including the million dollar ones I've used at work is track skipping. If a driver. Doesn't give enough throttle turning especially on high traction surface you will skip the drive sprocket and it causes allot of jitter in the tank. Aswell as very high chance of throwing the track off. This is where a good driver knows how to listen to engine and ensure he gives right amount of torque to negate this issue. I just took whatever map it gave me and chose a practice mission. I took a couple positions as you would in a real tank. And it was actually probably the best terrain mesh I have really seen in a tank game. Instead of hiding behind rocks or really unnaturale landscape that was just thrown down. The landscape was "rolling" and natural. I can take positions heads up, sights up, turret up and use the ground as protection instead of my armour. The AI were trying to hammer me and all's they were doing was hit dirt infront of me. Pretty awesome and realistic. These tanks are old and painfully slow in reverse so jockying positions was painfully slow, which today is hang onto your helmet cuz it's full speed reverse. So taking new position as you would in modern times is much slower. (Teaching point if you didn't know when you jocky you are reversing off your position outside the enemy's view and piping up somewhere else on the crest of the hill but far enought that you would be outside their reticle from where you last were. So that you force the gunner to have to change the gun lay majorly giving you more time to engage)
  24. Glad you like it, it's always good to get positivity from someone in the know.... Bit messy but that's a piccie of my X52 and quadrant setup. Like Friar, I also use rudder pedals for steering and throttle for forward/reverse. A lot of the key mappings, especially those on the quadrant, probably don't get used very much. I did the setup as an exercise to include as many of the available mappings as possible. As Friar says, some of the mappings are double mapped with aircraft mappings but it doesn't make any difference to either because they aren't being used at the same time. The key mappings written mext to the action are there to remind me of either the default setting or one I have changed it to. Cheerzen Sid
