  1. I noticed the Russian lady. The Mark IV we are getting is the most numerous built and quite a few were lend lease to Russia, fighting at Kursk and Prokorhovka. The Normandy version is the better one, the Mark VII, a much better armoured and different beast that didn't appear until 1944. The Dieppe raid used Mark IIIs and North Africa and Italy were also Mark IIIs. Not to say there weren't any modified and used latterly but I don't think the Churchill we are getting is for westernising the Bodenplat or Normandy maps I'm afraid. Makes me think that TC 2 could be Battle of Kursk.
  2. Getting to grips with reflectivity on the skins....the metal is starting to look convincing I think. A skin for one of my favourite aircraft, the MiG3. Natural metal with aluminium painted wooden surfaces. A Git production using the official template.

  4. I know control setups are a very personal thing and it depends very much on what gear you have but I am starting this post in case someone finds it useful.... As always, any setup should be seen as a work in progress and is subject to change because of the new key mappings that come along with new aircraft. I think the GBS controls setup is doing well at the moment because of the number of key mappings that can be combined eg. many of the aircraft cooling systems can be combined, like cowl flaps, water rads and oil rads on one mapping. One thing I have found very useful over time is to keep as many, if not all, of the key mappings as default and add extra in the columns next to the default keys available in the settings. I have an all-Saitek setup. It works for me. X52 Pro, rudder pedals and 4 quadrants. The X52 has 3 modes. I use the first one for flying, second for tank crew and third for miscellaneous. There is some overlap with key mappings because some tank crew mappings also activate aircraft systems eg. tank visor/periscope controls are the same mappings as the AR234 dive bombing settings - I don't think it's an issue because I don't imagine we will need to setup a Tiger or a Sherman to dive bomb anything.....although, Dogz being Dogz! The dive bombing settings are being used more now because the Me410 will also use them in some way as more sights and systems are introduced into the game. I have one Saitek profile for each of the pieces of equipment in GBS except the rudder pedals, that doesn't need one. I have attached an uncluttered piccie of the equipment setup and the settings for GBS and Tank Crew (second page only used) as documents. If nothing else, it could serve as a guide as to what can be combined etc. Current 4 quadrant GBS controls.docx Current GBS Tank controls.docx
  5. Unfortunately I won't be there chaps. Looking forward to the September Duxford, hoping to meet up there!
  6. Thanks Col, that height is good. Could you add some wind at that height please, 3m/s...direction doesn't matter, or make wind on the map random.
  7. Difficult to say as the only figure found is 83GB, doesn't say which package. The premium has a few more aircraft and airfields so I don't think it will be that much bigger.

  10. Ta Crasheroni. I'm also looking for pictures of aircraft with schemes different to the default so I can have a go. I don't think this one varied very much from standard, there are some of the 4 engined C3 variants that have some differences but apart from that I draw a blank...
  11. A skin depicting an Ar234 as a nightfighter of Erprobungskommando in March 1945. The actual aircraft had radar antennae so it's semi historical. This skin has the gunpod painted black to fit in with the overall scheme. I couldn't see how the upper surfaces scheme fitted in at night but the piccie shows just how it did....I think I have looked for schemes for this aircraft but most are included as default....if anyone finds one that's different please let me know. A Git production using the official template.

  13. I think it would be a very useable map if you were able to do it Friar 👍 I am assuming the time of day would have to be set or does it depend on the real time of day and the time the map is in rotation? To have it available to use for training and practice is an ideal situation as it means a bunch could use it at the same time. However, an individual could set themselves up in the quick mission builder and select either a simple flight or use the advanced selection that gives specific targets for specific aircraft eg. airfields or other targets for level bombing if that is the aircraft's role. Time of day can be selected on either but I don't believe you can select a 'cold start' in the advanced builder. A list of airfields used operationally by Ar234s is here but others eg. Deelen (north of Arnhem) work aswell.

    Good grief....
  15. Are there any....women.....here today......?
  16. So maybe your nickname should be 'TakAtak' as in the Battle of Britain 'Watch out for me Simon....TakAtakAtakAtak!'
  17. Welcome Ben! I hope you settle in and enjoy the flying and our company.
  18. It is worth the effort BB. It's a joy to look at and is easy to fly. I did a circuit today from Gloucestershire Airport, touch and go at Birmingham then west to the Welsh coast. Turned south and followed the coast back up the River Severn to Gloucester. Did it at real time and with live traffic. Great views of the aircraft at 30,000ft and at sea level. No piccies and no vid but it looks brilliant.... Fix it...you won't regret it...
  19. Not bad. I sat in the one at RAF St Mawgen last month and it was small.....so is this. It doesn't compete with the best cockpits available but it's not far off with resolution and overall look. There is a payware in the pipeline but this will do until then. It's clickable...not that that interests me. As a free package I think it is very good. The externals are excellent. I'm a huge Hunter fan so I am grateful for anything I can get....
  20. Just spotted a booboo....fuselage drab is meant to be the same as the outer/inner wing drab.... 😬
