Dabbling in IL-2 again

Postby Windle Poons » Sat Oct 15, 2016 7:50 am

After a VERY long break, I've been looking at IL-2 again. You know, I don't think I played it after 1946 came out...how can that be 10 years ago?!?

So, installed. Patched up to 4.13.2 And wow! The old magic is till there. This is a fantastic sim!

Only playing around in offline so far - actually playing through the IL-2 scripted campaign from the very first release - actually quite good (some quirks, to be sure...but over all good) - but hitting tanks with the new inaccurate rockets is a bit of a low probability event!

Will have to look into the online games too. Is the Inspire sever still running?

Mate if you take the time to get patched up to what we are flying you will be amazed.
If your really enjoying stock IL2 offline you will pop your eyeballs at what we are up too.
We have some incredible maps and many of them, but flying formation with people your in comms with on a mission you have briefed on is full on fun.
We are not super hard core, just a very experienced outfit that has a lot of hours flying with each other, we really have a lot of fun first and foremost, a lot of laughter, grinning ear to ear is our default.
Follow the link Raha posted to get you up to date with where we are at and jump on board! _b

I've got UP3 downloaded and installed - and taken a quick look. Yep - that's a LOT of stuff!

Also trying to get DBW running but having no luck there yet.

I'll have to get myself a mic headset and join you guys some evening.

We'll have to take you for an armed Recce into Northern Italy, or Sweep over Dieppe, or the Courland Pocket or Malta or Tobruk or Rangoon...
