    Thanks to Fenrir mentioning Artie having bumped/bounced on take off during our session last Thursday, finally found and fixed the rather annoying bug where one would be flying along nicely, and suddenly one's aircraft is being removed from midair ... POOF! That would always occur three minutes after one had landed. Makes sense, we do not want you to have tea and biscuits in cockpit. The mess! (Yes, that's the proper place to have those, apart from ground crew having to clean your pit). Artie bouncing meant the server probably thought he'd landed at take off. Somehow I've managed to add a test to the removal script, so it will only happen to AI aircraft... and within one minute now, not after three. Now you may think your a/c will stay on the field for like ever after you've landed, but no, unless you stay in the cockpit, once you press escape, your aircraft will be set to AI status, and then poofed after one minute. Disclaimer: only limited testing has been done, there's a good chance that during the mission running lots of blue ai aircraft occupy their home bases after having landed ... oh well, will deal with that once that happens...

    After tolerating a Phenom (I bought off Snacko ages ago) for way too long I stumbled into a bit of luck My eldest (who works at same company as me and lives at home) took pity on his mum playing Sims on a non-gaming laptop, and dropped $800 on a new one for me. This liberated the same amount for me from my bonus, and I now have a Ryzen 1800X in an Asus ROG (yeah really lol) Crosshair V1 board with 16GB DDR4. Oh and my first SSD, a Samsung 960 Evo 256Gb. Yet to get the RAM running as well as it could, who new RAM timings could run to 100s of settings! (I got GSkill F4-3200C16D-16GVKB which is not on the QVL for the board). DCS is smooth, with my 4 year old 770GTX (perhaps I may get a 1070+ for my birthday) as is Assetto Corsa powered by my G920 Wheel setup (I was 'permitted to buy that out of my bonus last month to replace the one I sold to FruitBat LOL). IL2 in all its flavours is silky smooth too, now to get practiced again so I can get online.

    Hi boys, whilst finding some stuff to listen to during my working luck I stumbled upon a great channel called Aircrew interview. I've posted some of the ones I found particularly interesting:

    Thinking of starting in DCS with WW2 modules? Or considering expanding your existing hangar of WW2 types? Maybe you've put off getting the Normandy Map & Asset Pack until prices came down? Well, now here's an opportunity: https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3476473&postcount=140

    Some of those old kites are plenty tricksy, especially ground handling, take-offs and landings

    ๐Ÿ˜ Just downloaded and installed ROF. These kites are a blast but will take some getting used to. When I have the "need to creep-along", ROF will be my go to ๐Ÿ˜. At least there are not a lot of key mapping to do.

    I mean seriously, nothing happens in a town where 68% of the population are over sixty-five but yesterday afternoon........................ Normal dangers on Jacob's Ladder beach are Jelly fish, hypothermia and being shat on by a Sea Gull. Now we can add aeroplanes landing on yer' head https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/plane-made-incredible-emergency-landing-1539390

    Awesome! Thank you FT. Glad to be back in this squadron of crude dogz again! I'm just about up to date with il2 sturmovik 1946. I'm at hsfx v7.0.2. I also have CLOD. Snacko hooked me up with an x52 pro throttle and I'm waiting on the joystick to get here. Then I have quite a bit of keybindings and hotas controls to set up. Just to get down to brass tax with yall lol. It's awesome to hear from you guys again. Its been years literally. I've been borrowing the teamspeak to play arma with my brother in Hawaii for awhile (I'm terrible I know) but I straight up miss the flight sim world. I'm currently trying to get my brother into the flight sims but he likes to be the Billy bad donkey that can fly with his keyboard because joysticks are over rated lol. But I think I can coax him into an x52.

    Hi B ... The Test server is an exact copy of the original one, but it's running on an entirely new server. That new server is going to replace the old one, in the end. Currently, we are checking if CloD runs just as nice (hopefully even nicer/better) on the new one as on the old one. So, it's a test situation for the server, not for CloD really. I do feel and understand the issue you are experiencing, and have been thinking about it, and how to 'change' the server so it will better suit the solo pilot. This is not really possible however, as the server was not designed to perform any specific role or scenario, it's just a bunch of different missions (159 at the moment) randomly launched... The steadily increasing number must've resulted in this change... I do not see it as 'development', as there is no direction in the changes made, there's no specific goal. It's more like an evolution... See here:

    I'd prefer engines off but pre-warmed at mission start personally but it's a good step in the right direction

    Taken from Key Forums... Here is a further selection of photos taken by Steve Coe (links shared on Facebook). Of course when the forward engine cowlings are on, those too will be covered in the red checkers like the cowl flaps.https://www.flickr.com/photos/131051975@N03/40824473835https://www.flickr.com/photos/131051975@N03/40824470285https://www.flickr.com/photos/131051975@N03/41723448591https://www.flickr.com/photos/131051975@N03/41723446521
