    Anyone played PT-Boats south gambit?

    Has anyone heard of it? Its my favorite ship simulator so far. Developed by the independent Russian company akella the first one , Knights of the sea is based on the battles the soviets, british and germans fought in the arctic and north sea and second one is based on the meditarenean and black sea naval combat from 1941-43. It has good graphics and beautifully and accurately modeled rare ships and boats like the G-5 , MO-4, D-3, Fairmile, M-class, Type 7U, etc. The combat is dynamic and fun in, like laying smoke screens to evade destroyers or gunning down enemy PT-boats

    Unfortunately it has a miniscule player base and some of the elements(especially the mission editor) and missions are buggy or unusable. Still its a very unique game that has great potential if its smoothed out.

    Its a very unique game and the missions are challenging and fun most of the time. Its main problem is the lack of any player support due to being so specialized so the problems aren't reported much or resolved. You can give it a try. The learning curve there isn't very big.

    Anyway no one told me if they've ever played it?
    You also a fan of IL-2? One of the best flight sims IMO, the main problem there's just not enough large  flyable iconic aircraft. And its already aging but there isn't much interest in remaking it with the devs looking for sequels with much more limited scope but more detail.

    I sometimes still boot up Il-2 1946.

    The plane choice is huge and gameplay is awesome, detailed yet still fun.

    Plus there are addons that allow you to fly some of the other planes... I personally like flying the Il-4.

    Do you fly it with the plane's actual cockpit? I've been trying to attach mods to IL2 from zip but it doesn't register do you know how to do it?

    It has been ages since I applied that mod... I seem to remember the instructions were included with the files and it was fairly straight forward.

    I suggest having a look at the forum where you got the link for further assistance... Smile

    BTW I remember finding a German float plane which was great fun landing in rivers and lakes and the Baltic.
