  1. Now This Is My Kind Of Di

    She's definitely hot....love the rack!
  2. I guess my question is can these be used with TM gear? I recently bought a Cougar and unless the need for mods comes around I'm not planning on spending any more money on controls.
  3. Ace's High

    An old song but still one of the best Maiden tunes ever. Great footage that was beautifully arranged.
  4. Some people shouldn't have access to the internet...

    Good parent grasping at straws? It was a pretty good parody of how far some people go in the name of protecting "the children." Maybe he's right, though, and the reason I haven't been able to get better at hacking is because I have an American-made Intel CPU, with its integrated anti-hacking properties. I'm definitely buying the inferior foreign Intel-knockoff known as AMD next time!
  5. Main Battle Tanks

    They do have a relatively lightweight track compared to previous tanks, and road wheels aren't too hard to blow off. Tanks are all about trade-offs - an Abrams could be made invulnerable to everything but direct hits from a 16" shell from a battleship or Mk84, but then it'd have the mobility of a WW1 tank. In most cases they were also operating without dismounted infantry support, which in a traditional battle is tantamount to suicide for tankers.
  6. Main Battle Tanks

    If I'm reading you correctly you're saying you don't believe American/NATO tanks are better than Soviet/Warsaw Pact ones? I could probably point you towards some 24th Infantry Division (Mechanized) tankers whose M1A1s took multiple hits from T72s back in '91 without being critically damaged, and find plenty of pics of T72s with their turrets upside down about 15m away after being hit by 120mm APFSDS, TOW, or Hellfire. The M1 is so good, even another M1 can't destroy one.
  7. don't ya miss these places to play on MP

    I don't know if I'd consider Jane's F15 to be a middle-of-the-road sim, it seemed to have a learning curve, flight model, etc, as complex as F4's. It fell short in not having a dynamic campaign, and definitely should have had a co-op play provision.
  8. Your Favorite 'Oldies'

    Aces of the Pacific used to be my favorite "fun" flight sim. Nothing was better than climbing in my P38 and mixing it up - get some altitude, dive into the Jap formation, pick out a target, a little bit of .50 chatter and a "thump thump thump" from the 20mm and he's done. Climb using the airspeed you gained in yout dive and do the whole thing over again :-)
  9. Your Favorite 'Oldies'

    I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Falcon 3.0 or Tornado, which are my favorites.
  10. Falcon 3.0 had a dynamic campaign like this (way back in 1992!), and I'm pretty sure Falcon 4.0 and Falcon 4:Allied Force do as well.
  11. What Do You Want More??

    Maybe I need to look for an old 486 with DOS 6.x that I can run Tornado and Falcon 3.0 on! X-Wing & TIE Fighter, too :) WRT graphics vs realism, I got into flight sims back in the early (pre-HOTAS days, if you can believe there ever was such a time!) and one thing I've noticed is that some old sims with very dated graphics (Falcon 3.0, Tornado, Su27) are much more fun to play than some of the more recent sims with great graphics. I think this was because the developers knew there was only so much they could do graphics-wise so they concentrated on trying to put as much depth as possible into the sim instead. Kinda like a guy who wants to build a "sleeper" car on a budget, he's better off putting his money into the engine and suspension than doing bodywork and paint. If photorealistic graphics AND absolute realism are possible in the same sim at the same time, then I'm all in favor of both. But graphics should never be given priority over realism, IMO.
  12. I haven't flew in a month or so but what I was doing was flying the landing training mission over and over, usually with nothing but AA instead of the default loadout. The last time I "landed" an F15 was back in the F15 SEIII days, but I think there just might be a bit of difference in the FMs. SEIII seemed pretty realistic for the day, though. What I've flown more than anything else was F16s (Falcon 3.0, some B2B) and once I got the relationship between throttle, stick, AOA, and flight path marker landing them became pretty routine. I'm in the process of moving now, but not sure whether I'm going to stay at the job I currently have (a new one that doesn't seem as promising after 6 weeks) so until I have a permanent residence to fly out of I'm staying off the sims LOL
  13. Favorite Falkand's War Aircraft

    1) Both sides' troops were honorable men doing the job they chose and fighting for their countries, and neither deserve disrespectful comments made about them or their losses. You can try to kill each other, just don't talk smack about each other! 2) re Belgrano being outside the war zone. Call me old-fashioned, but there are no safe areas during a war. I couldn't care if the Belgrano was in the Persian Gulf at the time, she'd be fair game to any Brit ships or aircraft who happened to find her.
  14. Greatest Military-Based Movie

    They're not "war movies" in the traditional sense, but "The Wind And The Lion" and "Farewell To The King" are 2 great "movies with conflicts." Also, "The Lighthorsemen."
  15. It's the latest sim I have that'll work on my other PC - my Cougar's not up & running so I'm stuck with FLCS/TQS/RCS on a 400MHz PII. Are there any good flight training tutorials for it? Compared to sims like Falcon 3.0 and 4.0 the training portion of F15's manual really sucks and if I can ever manage to get this wallowing cow on the ground in 1 piece every time I'd like to have something a little more detailed and structured than the manual to go by.
