    OK, I will also chime in and say that I also dusted off my joystick (The dusty one). Ran into Psycho on FB yesterday and am really wanting to get the system up again. I really am stoked that you all still fly together. It was like a family when I was around and I missed you all. (Even though I couldn't understand most of you....Delta) Looks like I need to purchase a new game

    As of today, we also got a Coop server running 24/7. The Coop server is running the 'GoodCoops' in Rotation. Two of them are in there at the moment, number should increase when we come across one, and someone shouts out 'Good Coop! Save it!' This coop server will be used for hosting the regular coops, so people in waiting can have fun on the regular DF server. Yeah, this will cause confusion, because people will see the DF, join it, and next wonder where everybody is? lol

    For....ahem....cinematic purposes I'm hoping we might find the time tomorrow (sunday) evening for a little mass P-51 formation flying wearing 'Blue-nosed bastards of Bodney' skins. Nothing too dramatic or taxing, just a large gaggle flying gently around for a bit I've uploaded the appropriate set of 4k skins to the skault so they are available via Checkskins or you can have a look at 'em and d/l from here. https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/55168-bugsys-p-51-skins/?do=findComment&comment=876083 Or of course you can tell me to get stuffed!

    When we bought our house last year I asked Spectrum/Charter if they could provide service. They said they would send out a surveyor to confirm, came back and yep no problem. Moved in and then was told no service, team lead for engineers came through, dropped a 400' cable and got us 1Gb internet. Alternative was satellite, AT&T can only provide 74Kb lol. Dark ages!

    New pics of the next DCS WW2 map - The Channel Map!: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=260382 Note the airfields shown Detling (grass airfield) and Manston (with the Ponies in revetments). The harbour town shown is Ramsgate. I think this will be a paid module; confirmation should be forthcoming. Either way... WH00T!

    Hi guys, here is something i put together for myself, but thought i'd share to all. Its a mod that adds the Hankenkreuz to all German planes, plus any planes that haven't been updated to 4k, it updates to 4k. It includes winter options which will be selected by default by the ai depending on map. This is used by me to make my targets and my comrades alike, look much better! Its quite easy when this mod is installed through jsgme to change the default skin of any plane to your liking if you so want, i could talk you through that if you wanted. Simply download the mod from our vault, And unzip the contents to your mod folder. Then enable them in the order, 4K Normalmaps 4K Default Skin Replacements for BoM-BoS-BoK 4K White Skin Replacements for BoM-BoS-BoK 4k Default Skin Replacements for BoBP The reason why its so big, is because all the BoBP German official skins have the Hankenkreuz enabled due to a chap called spudkopf's efforts. Enjoy!

    With zero attendance being evident for any Monday night Il-2:1946 session since the inauguration of the new flying schedule, and the fact that DCS Thursdays has been somewhat Shanghai'd by the 443 Squadron Campaign event, in light of the response to this thread: I am seeing a demand for an extra DCS day and am henceforth claiming Monday! So kick the tyres on your Hornet/Tomcat/Viggen/Mirage/Harrier/Warthog/Skyhawk/MiG/Sukhoi, whip the blade ties off your Huey/Mi-8/Gazelle/Ka-50 and clear the cylinders on your Spitty/109/190/P-51/I-16/Yak-52 - DCS Monday is back! Starting Monday 6th January 2020.

    My first carrier landing attempt, Admittedly I was being talked down by Tom!!! And Jester was less than impressed🤣😁 And a rather nice vid, after i jumped into Tom's Tomcat afterwards, and watched a landing from the backseat (with time to do some external shots too). Good fun

    Well I took the plunge and purchased IL-2 BOS, Moscow and Kuban along with the Spitfire Mk.VB, Bf 109, P-40E, Yak-1b, La-5FN and the Fw 190. I could not pass the prices on sale. Is there any other DLC I should pick up (maybe fly with some of you again).

    Thanks all for the help. I have a reprieve of sorts. I only had 9 MB (of 250) space left on my SSD. I'm told its very bad to have an SSD more than about 75% full. Ordered a 500MB SATA 2.5 inch. My mobo is just a bit too old to take full advantage of an NVMe stick... by the time I can use one a 10 TB will be $20 Moved DCS bloatware (88mb?) to the storage drive. DCS seems to run OK, just takes a long time to load.

    Bingo! - Thanks FT - that has sorted it. I posted in the GBS forum so I will post your solution in there as well. Cheers Friar

    I was thinking the very same thing earlier. I'd say great minds think alike, but on balance, probably mediocre minds think alike is more accurate 🤣

    Well done chaps. Personally I prefer to fly whole missions but the map size is problematic so this is a useful project. If I can be of assistance, let me know. I'm actively involved with the TF 5.0 Alpha testing at present, but I can certainly find the time over the next couple of weeks to chip in if required.

    See here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/57269-storm-of-war/ So, fire up CloD and check all your settings! (As if... we aren't occupied enough with GBS and DCS!) Who would be up for this?

    The theoretical maximum speed for a SATAIII connection is 6GB/s. I don't think 6 megabits per second is going set the world on fire 😉. Notice the use of the word theoretical - you are unlikely to see anything remotely approaching that in a real-world application (SATA SSDs are still much quicker than standard hard drives) - much like the fuel economy figures the manufacturer says you can get out of your car/truck/bike (delete as applicable). PCIe SSD cards are available but I would advise you to check very carefully that your board supports them, I've skimmed through the manual and I think it's highly unlikely but I'm prepared to be proved wrong. They are also MUCH more expensive that a standard SSD so I would probably just add another SSD and keep the change. Failing that and if you're feeling flush, swap out the mobo, processor and memory and get your added horsepower that way - in addition you could then swap out SSDs for M.2s later if you felt so inclined.

    I may not understand the issue and proposed solution(s). But our server has a ton of horse power and should be able to cope easily with the load? Is it that console/gui access is required? I for one do not have any issue with others having that access, provided suitable training is given on what not to do of course! Apologies for tardy response, work has been utterly crazy (102 hour week is my record and 25 days without a break including working on vacation!). I am now off until January 2nd though
