    After I got home from school today myself and 'm laddy went for our one period of exercise we are allowed per day. T' was another stunning spring day too. Finally, some naughty surfers "no officer, I've never met those people in the water before in my life"

    Wow, lovely Redtail. Was the weather okay? Did the cloud come down? Edit; my day has been spent indoors , on a laptop Got anymore piccies?
  4. Ry Cooder? Well I like him more than Eric Crapton but this sort of stuff usually sends me to sleep. Are we about to have a music thread FT? To have the voice to sing this....or the wherewithal to write poetry and set it to music..... 'and when you ran to me, your cheeks flushed with the night we walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight'
  5. You can try the F16 for free today and tomorrow. Then the F/A18 for a couple of dys, etc. I'm a sucker for this sort of thing so I'm staying well away in case I blow the loo roll budget on DCS

  10. "hidden extras" and "finger toy" in the same sentence sounds.....interesting
  11. Hmmmm......not a simple question to answer. Firstly, as far as I'm aware the only game around where players gain a real benefit from lowering the games resolution in order to 'spot the dots' earlier is CLoD.The Great Battles series does not actually render a dot. It delivers a teeny, tiny plane with it's own reflection model. It's that reflection model that is the first indication of distant movement. Despite many forum claims and heated debate, in GBS there is no way in game to improve spotting distances. I and many others have tried 'em all and neither lowering resolution, nor lowering the gamma or using post-effects like SweetFX make any difference. Hardware, however might. As far as I'm aware only Fruitbat has a high res monitor and VR so I'd be very interested to hear his opinion. All VR headsets have a higher resolution than 1080 monitors. I'm using a Rift CV1 as is Friar and Crash. Sid, Fenrir and Fruitbat are using the Rift S which has a slightly higher resolution than the CV1. Up until the release of version 4.004 I think it fair to say that under certain conditions - generally having the sun behind us and the approaching aircraft being below the horizon - both Crash and myself have been able to spot distant movement further out than anyone else. Initially what we are seeing is reflected light from distant aircraft. Is this an advantage? Well.....yes frankly. 😎 However, something has changed with version 4.004 and I'll quote from Han's update notes 8. Brightness and size of very distant aircraft LODs made more uniform (it differed too much on some aircraft) and I fear our super powers are not as they were as I've not been able to spot anything dramatically far out lately. The big, top ten advantages to using VR over a monitor are (in my opinion) 1] Holy shit, I'm in a Spitfire! Ditto for points 2 to 8 9] Much better ability to judge distance - which leads to 10] Much improved gunnery accuracy. Infact, check out my little streak in Flying Circus http://stats.jasta5.org:8000/en/pilot/294/DD_Arthur/?tour=9 Other advantages? Er....... I'm using the tiny triangle in my icon mod. and I'm using the no other planes on the map mod 'cause Uncle Siddley told me to
