  1. Little vid and a couple of pics of an F16 and an i16 flying in formation together, thanks FT! My F16 computer wasn't particularly happy with me, holding 15 degrees of AOA to fly around 170 knots, to let FT's i16 formate on me!!!! But to be honest she's never that happy with me anyway🤣
  2. Genuinely one of the hardest things I've ever done in a flight sim!!!!! Tried for the first time last night, and just couldn't get stable enough to connect, but after a bit of control changes (due to a design team decision to have the stick forces on the roll less than pitch, and me having swapped axis in controls, like force feedback owners normally do for all planes, this was resulting in my pitch being floppy compared to roll... no good!). After changing tried again tonight, by no means perfect at all, but got some fuel!!!!
  3. F16 cold start up, surprisingly easy...
  4. More laser guided bomb fun, on the updated dogz mission...
  5. Still good fun to use good old fashioned guns though......
  6. Finally sat down and taught myself how to use laser guided bombs in the Viper, and how much fun!!!! Flying just under mach 1, 17,000 ft and getting a big bang just where you want it 😁😁 Mind it helped having 2 computers next to each other, one for the game, and one for the youtube tutorials 🤣 A lot of fun!
  7. I support limited icons for planes and have been using that for months, rather than names for everyone, makes it much more entertaining imo. This is pretty much how we often ended up flying 46 in later years anyway (only have names at close range for friendlies). Also just having our own plane on the map, which is what we used to do in 46 anyway.
  8. Yey i have a gunsight at last🤣
  9. Well, that sounds like a bundle of fun🤣🤣🤣
  10. How long ago did you order it?
  11. Oh bugger, this looks like another likely purchase, thanks Dave 🤣 Looking forward to hearing how you get on with this.
  12. Huey, Hornet, Tomcat and Viper for me😍
  13. Many fun times. Can't believe the first one i went to with you guys was coming up 10 years ago.
  14. Great list of planes though👍 Looking forward to the p40's particularly in the cliffs engine.
  15. Oh well, As i didn't (notice the pass tense) have the Hornet, I bought the naval warfare bundle, and the Persian gulf map, with discounts and dcs miles for $90 🙈
  16. Light weight version for TOAD, 870 meg instead of 1.56 gig

  18. I accidentally missed out the yak 7, so there is a little 30 meg download attached to this post that will correct that, Unzip and copy into C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles\Mods\4K Default Skin Replacements for BoM-BoS-BoK and disable and re enable "4K Default Skin Replacements for BoM-BoS-BoK" in JSGME This will add a 4k default summer and winter skin for thew Yak 7 data.7z
  19. Looks the perfect place to enjoy the corsair 👍
  20. 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
  21. I need to spend some more time in her, its on my list over the holidays, i don't want my f16 to get jealous though 🤔🤣
  22. That file you've highlighted is an old different version of the mod in 2k skins. Fyi, I've altered stuff in the other folders that you have shown there as well, adding normal maps and 4k skins for all other planes that didn't have them, and have removed the normal maps and skins for planes that have been updated to 4k by the devs.
  23. 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 🤣
