  1. Flipped

    Very cool.
  2. Rest in peace, Mr. President.
  3. I've always felt the same as Mike Dora, and I'm grateful that you shared your real world experience, Mike. Shutting off WW2 exhausts makes the sim world a better place, at least for me. Mike, you volunteer at Old Rhinebeck? A New York treasure, and one of my favorite places of all time. Been visiting there since I was in my teens. What a dedicated group of individuals we have there. If anyone visits New York State, it should be one of the places you schedule on your visit. Just remember to bring some cash, because the gift shop and food stands only accept cash. Great place.
  4. Despite it's age, I still seriously love this sim...
  5. I believe these issues have something to do with the beginning and ending route positions within each terrain's movement.ini, but I could be wrong.
  6. I know people don't like to do it, but with all WW2 multi-engine bombers, I turn off the exhaust effects. I never liked most, anyway, too heavy, and it does help me with frame rates. I also used Wrench's trick of changing the distance at which the different LODS appear.
  7. Senator John McCain dies at age 81

    Rest in peace.
  8. Thank you both. I knew if I asked here I'd get ideas. That's the type of stuff I'm looking for, MigBuster. Good solid interviews with these pilots from the other side. I've read accounts from Western sport pilots who own some of the aircraft, and I guess that's what started my quest. Often what they've said about them didn't match what had been said by past histories. For example, the Mig-15 bis. My reading has been confined a great deal to WW2 and prior. It's time for my old brain to catch up with the jet age, before I pack it in. Always find bits of time for more reading. I have to find Sergei Kramarenko's book, a great place to start. Oh, a million years ago, I read a statistic that 80% of German war effort went to the Eastern Front, up until the time Hitler transferred most of it to the west for the Bulge offensive. Has anyone else heard that?
  9. Thank you, JosefK. I'll check it out. I'm interested in any accounts I can read from any of the nations that flew these aircraft. They're all just fighter jocks, after all. I hope more and more of their accounts will be translated, for poor single tongue speakers like myself. Czechs, Poles, East Germans, Egyptians, anyone who's flown them in a military setting. If anyone has leads to translated accounts, even just magazine articles, I'd love to hear of the connection.
  10. I know. I'm trying to find out if Russian accounts have been translated. I'm hoping some have.
  11. I know I'm going to touch off some people here, but so be it. When it comes to Soviet aircraft, I would really like to read, in English, real accounts, from real ex-Soviet pilots, about what it was like to fly their cold war aircraft. What could these planes do? What couldn't they do? Good, old, fighter pilot tales, tall ones included, I've heard enough tall tales from Americans over the course of my sixty-five years. I'm tired of reading the same old stories, which often quote each other as sources, and when they're contradicted by ex-Soviets, the ex-Soviets must be lying about their own stuff. I've lived long enough to know that Napoleon was right: History is a set of lies; agreed upon. I've heard from the Western pack of liars all my life. Now, I want to hear from the other pack of liars, so I can re-write the agreement, simply for my own amusement. Anyone know of any good books in English? Sorry, I can read Russian.
  12. Glad you got it fixed. I can appreciate the lack of space problems.
  13. If you own the installation file, then I don't see why you would have to. Simply open the installation file you purchased and let it do its work. If you let it put the game where it wants to, it will work fine.
  14. Alan Bean passes away at 86
