    Thought I'd make a little rough and ready video to help with ground handling, take off, landing and how to avoid ground looping. Please feel free to discuss.

    The mission editor? I can take someone else's mission, open it in the editor, change the time of day, the weather and sometimes even some planes.........and thats it One thing worrying me about a switch to BoX is that FT will get lumbered with the mission building or - knowing what a star he is - he'll take it on anyway. The mission editor is basically a Dev development tool from RoF days reluctantly provided by the Devs due to popular demand - mostly by people who'll never use it. If FT takes it on will it cut into his bridge building time or will it accelerate it as he goes gently bonkers from opening the mission editor, changing something, closing the mission editor, firing up the game, closing the game, opening the mission editor, closing the mission editor, opening the game, ad nauseum.....? Forget about mission building a la' IL2 1946 and CLoD.....completely. Some very useful links and discussions can be found here; https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/forum/92-mission-making-and-mission-editor/ 'Ere, isn't it about time we flew this thing again if we're going to make a brave new world?

    Here are a few other useful links I've found this week. Document listing which features each plane has so you can make sure to bind them: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/29700-basic-guide-cem-key-mapping-new-starters/ Requiem's Tutorial Series (most folks have probably already found these): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnyigzFtHeNquPvKFr3mazkk_VK0JpxUw Sheriff's guides: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLc4tmHaPyjwxbAhCGsh7ohpHApU-LxH4m https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLc4tmHaPyjww6PesMpxqRrcH10G_U4FQt These 1940's training films are a bit dry and a little overkill for playing BoX but describe a few things that may be confusing to new flyers trying to get to grips with expert settings: How propellers work (Pitch etc): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CLicyIVM18 How a carburetor works (Rich/lean mix, manifold pressure etc): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8a3ur6Ar_k Basic acrobatics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ciHwwRCeBw

    No worries there, while I currently live in Glasgow I grew up in a few different countries and as a result have ended up with a rather flat English accent. Folks here assume I'm English, folks down south are just confused as they can't place it either. Didnt make it on to TS last night, was recovering from my sisters Birthday celebrations and got an early night. Talking of birthdays Happy Birthday BluBear! And thanks for the welcomes

    Try a scramble at 0 dark30 o'clock with a hang over and only 2 hours sleep for added realism ? Lol
