    Thanks guys, I'm sure becoming a DD added a couple of years to his life. I was just looking at old text and messenger Messages with him and it took me like 10 years to get him back into flying. Once I did it took several months to get him online, it took him awhile to develop enough strength and drive to handle the pressures of sitting and manipulating his muscles and concentration to pull it off. Being a working man, I could not be there for him as often as a group of like minded chaps could be. Thus the reason I prodded him into the DD, it literally took weeks to get him convinced you guys didn't bite LOL Here are some screen shots of us and Messenger, in the early days of Danger Dogz and getting the games going. I sure do miss him, I'm not going to show all our conversations, but we'd message each other on and off through out the day, at times on a daily basis. and just like TS we talked about everything and anything, short that stuff Mick rambles on about all the time LOL.

    oooo! Hello everybody, It finally snows in Moscow while we continue the work on the new aircraft. Including the new Collector Planes for both the Western and Eastern fronts of the war - Yak-9, Yak-9T and Hurricane. Today we're ready to show you the progress achieved at the moment for the British Hurricane, which will have 5 (!) different modifications in our sim: Hurricane Mk.IIa: basic model armed with 8 х 7.69 mm Browning MGs; Hurricane Mk.IIb: the number of MGs has been increased to 12; Hurricane Mk.IIc: this model had 4 x 20 mm Hispano guns; Hurricane Mk.IId: anti-tank model armed with 2 x 40 mm Vickers-S guns and 2 x 7.69 mm MGs; Hurricane Mk.II with Soviet weaponry that was installed on the Lend-Lease aircraft: 2 х 12.7 mm UB MGs, 2 x 20 mm ShVAK guns and Soviet bomb and rocket holders. We hope that this nice selection of the Hurricane models suitable both for the Western and Eastern front would be a great addition to IL-2 Sturmovik series:

    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!

    Currently working on a thing called CheckSkins ... The idea is to run it every now and then on your gaming PC. It will have the same usage restriction as CheckMods had: One has to be a DD to use it! (Could open it up for everybody - but we would probably run into Bandwidth issues - lol) * It will upload all your skins to a central location, if they are not there already. * It will download all skins from the central location to your skins folder, if they are not there already. * It will be file-name based, including only .dds files. It will not be contents based. Yes, this will pose a problem when you update a skin! Not sure how to handle this, and whether this will be a problem! (It's always possible to manually delete files from the central location...) On the one hand, I would like it to be as automated as possible - you start it, and it does its thing, up- and download missing skins. However, I can imagine one would want some options: 1. Only download locally missing skins 2. Only upload centrally missing skins (Wait, this one makes no sense at all!) 3. Both Here's a preview: Any suggestions? Remarks? Ideas? Feel free, go ahead!

    Showcasing one of the new flyable aircraft for IL-2 Cliffs of Dover 5.0.The highly anticipated Spitfire Vb Tropical variant. Update also includes new sounds and the new theater, North Africa. A more in depth look at the Vb will be released in the near future.The North Africa map is still in Alpha. It does not include the new cloud systems and weather, or other details such as rock formations or rocky abuttments, distance views, etc. etc. which will be seen in the final version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFvQ3RC54R4 Cheers, Pattle

    Okay so set up a test campaign on my PC to see what the gen is currently... Accomplished: Generated a competitive co-op campaign. Going by the list at the top of this thread I was able to generate a mission for the 9 of us, with spaces allocated to individual players! Nice! Played the mission with AI occupying all the absent DDz slots and it was 👍 Pros: It worked! Cons: No prototypical FG available for P-38 currently. Florennes seemingly unavailable as an airfield to operate from. Only hot start runway available. Runway spawns slightly misaligned with runway On ending the mission and attempting to get PWCG to accept its results and generate a new mission I got an error warning. More work needed methinks.

    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!

    This is the simple and straightforward solution. I've put up a dogfight server myself a couple of times whilst waiting recently. All we need is for more Dogz to be able to do this. If you can run BoS on your PC then you have enough resources to put up a dogfight server with a.i. Since we have all flown on our dogfight server we all have these missions in our games. They can be accessed by going into Multiplayer>Dogfight>Create Server and then selected from the screen. It's really easy and everyone should have a try at launching their own server and shooting down some a.i.. To be able to put up a Dogfight server that other Dogz can join requires two things; A reasonably strong, stable Internet connection. This is mine and I'm able to host through my PC whilst my router has at least four other devices connected to it. The other, vital thing is to have the correct ports on your router open. This is the biggest single obstacle to most people hosting. If your in the UK and are using BT, check this thread out

    I think Dave is spot-on here; having a D/F host available to act as a lobby for people either late for a co-op start or subject to an unfortunate event mid-mission is a great idea and would certainly help attenuate the sometimes 20-45 minute wait till next co-op commences. The logistics is the issue. The options are: 1. Have a second DangerDogz GBS Dedicated Server This requires I assume another VM and the resources (time/money/willpower) to run. or Someone with a spare PC and a good/reliable connection (and the wherewithal/will) to host . 2. Latecomers/early departures host on their home machines Plus for low cost. However, anyone hosting a Reserve D/F Server will only do so whilst they are not in a co-op; latecomers would have to host themselves. Since no-one knows when they are going to be late/suffer an unfortunate event, everyone potentially would have to be able to host so, as the first one out or first latecomer, they can provide the platform for others. This requires the necessary computing horsepower to run a mission with a reasonable amount of AI, a reasonable network connection, the requisite ports open and at least one D/F mission in their personal vault to draw on. Comms could be as simple as setting a keybinding for TS to jump to a particular channel away from the Main Lobby. Personally I enjoy the full take-off - fly - fight - fly - land experience and would not want to compromise that too much, however, I appreciate that it's not for all; perhaps a the alternating of air-start/full length missions might be appropriate.

    Spit 2 has a higher service ceiling, something which irl was highly desirable, in the game much less so. Unless you plan fighting at 30,000ft, take the mk 1 100 octane.

    more stuff 233 Hello! We continue our movement toward the release of Battle of Bodenplatte, but even near the finish line we still find opportunities to improve the entire project. This time we found a way to implement a significant optimization to part of the graphics engine that is responsible for displaying the clouds. In addition to a significant increase in FPS on existing cloud settings, this allowed us to add an additional setting for the cloud quality called "Extreme". This option is named so because it combines somewhat increased performance with a significant reduction of the “boiling” clouds effect which appears when looking sideways from the direction of movement. We have also significantly increased the clarity of cloud shapes and boundaries. Our clouds always looked nice on the high settings, but with the addition of this new option their visual quality and realism has significantly increased. However, it is better to see an example: Work on the Tank Crew project is still in full swing, and new additions can be expected in the coming months. First, at the end of October, the project acquires its main gameplay component- two Scripted Campaigns based on historical events of the Battle of Prokhorovka. Second, our next update will include new command functionality for the tank and tank the platoon commander. Third, before the end of the year, we expect our partners from DigitalForms to complete two new armored vehicles - the Soviet self-propelled artillery SU-122 and the German medium tank Panzerkampfwagen V "Panther". The 3-dimensional model of the Panther exterior is in a high degree of readiness whereas the SU-122 has already been completed and work is underway on texturing the interior and creating its crew animations:

    Spent an hour tonight on a Flying Circus dogfight server put up by someone who had created it using Vander's generator and was hosting from his own pc. Very good fun indeed. Returning from my dawn patrol I managed to bounce the host and his wingman. Didn't quite end how I'd planned it but we all ended up on the ground........ On my second sortie I tried the same tactics; a wide, climbing sweep over the front into Hunland and then a return with the rising sun at my back to try and bushwack the bosche. In VR this is all magnificent but what I thought was an Albatros DVa turned out to be a Halberstadt CL.2 equipped with a Becker 20mm autocannon with which the a.i. gunner proved to be a bit naughty

    Speaking of, I can't get my Reqium 6DOF profile to show up in TIR 5. It's in the correct folder (NatrualPoint/TrackIR/Profiles), but does not show up on the Profile tab under Profiles in the program. Ideas? I have hidden files viewable, which was the first thing mentioned on the DCS forum. No luck. NEVERMIND. It's NP being idiotic. Profiles are now WELL hidden, their location: C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\NaturalPoint\TrackIR 5\Profiles You'll probably have to un-hide hidden files to see 'AppData'. Grumble. So simple, yet so not.
