    I am keeping an eye on the DCS system... I have DCS Hokum but need to upgrade my computer to actually use it....

    I want old and obscure planes to fly... Tu-128 Fiddlers, Su-17s, Su-15s, MiG-25s, Yak-25 Mandrakes...

    DCS Blackshark isn't that intensive with the performance you need. The only thing that is a must is a HOTAS and if you are going to play it for a longer term do not buy some mediocre HOTAS with only a few buttons, because you will need as many functions as necessary to bind to the HOTAS. It is a pain in the ass to constantly have to reach around your HOTAS to use mouse and press hotkeys over keyboard while you are flying and worse enemies engage you or wise versa. The other recommandation would be a webcam and a program that can track your head movement so you can look around in cockpit with your head instead of using mouse which again makes you handicapped to react with your HOTAS to makes maneuvers or adjust weapons launch cursor on target or countermeasure use etc. pp.

    This simulation is absolutley astonishing and it gives you a nice feeling when you can destroy SHORAD stations out of their reach like Avangers, Nikes and Hawks. The flying is absolutley great, just flying through the map trying to do loops, mostly with deaths, because you need to learn how to do it smoothly and not jerking around the cycle and causing mast bumping and rotor collision but you can do it, done it but it is hard.

    There is an awesome video that someone made with what you can do with the flying performance of the Blackshark in this simulation.

    Can't find it right now but that guy does loops after loops, barrel rolls and is just a god with that simulator.

    There are also some good fanmade movies like these two.

    HoI 4 AI behaves in a way that is borderline retarded - like pulling out a naval invasion of Germany after I completed my invasion of Poland. I could repel that invasion with an idle army from East Prussia. Outcome? 2k of my losses, 140k British losses.

    Is losing ten divisions to destroy two regiments worth it?

    Wow, what a big catch

    https://www.rt.com/viral/350325-pokemon-teen-dead-body/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=aplication_chrome&utm_campaign=chrome

    A 19-year-old stumbled upon a dead body while searching for a Pokemon with an augmented reality game she was playing on her smartphone.

    Shayla Wiggins said she came across the body of a man as she was playing the game on her phone near the Big Wind River in Wyoming.

    The ‘Pokemon Go’ augmented reality game was launched earlier in the week and requires players to visit various real world locations to “capture” virtual Pokemon.


    Honestly I object the release of Pokemon Go. Imagine that a legendary pokemon appeared in the middle of the highway, do you risk your life to catch it ?

    First mods for HoI 4 are being released. One of them is Millenium Dawn: Modern Day Mod (not to be mistaken with the mod by PlayerHOI). It is still in very early version but already alows you to play 2 scenerios, one beginning in 2000 and another in 2016. You can for example play in the Syrian War as Syria, FSA, ISIS or Kurd. There is not much to do but good news is that new versions are released every week or so and the mod will become fairy playable before 2017 starts.

    There is also a WW1 mod, a Cold War mod and a post-apocalypticc mod in the making - alongside several modern day mods.

    Good times ahead for us players, I think...

    A new v0.11 update to Millenium Dawn mod for HoI4 has just come out. It finally adds the war in Donbass with OOBs for both sides. Who of you wants to steeamroll down to Kiev? Now you got a chance. Smile

    The mod has a problem with scalling and does not (yet?) take increased frontages into account. Units that should be 3-4k strong are actually about 10k strong in the game. Novorussian army should be about 50k strong but in the game it's ~150k.

    I bought Ultimate General: Civil War. A great game. It was a surprise that it covers all of the war (whole community thought the next game will be about Antietam only)

    In FSZ I made my first landing using just elevator trim and power. Very smooth and pleasant experience. Wink

    after half-year HoI4 AI still the same. Tank armies (+ infantry protect cauldrons) is uber-weapon, enemy cannot concentrate troops to weakpoint, cannot making counter-attack or сut the advandving units, he simply creates new frontline. But i like managment of country and army and belive in mods.  

    So, i decided  to install Blitzkrieg with GZM mod new version for me 7.77, downloaded around 400 wartime songs from sovmusic, best soundtrack for operating regiments ), if anyone need that "music pak", i can upload .

    Anyone knows a good Boeing airliner (freeware) for FSX? I don't want to buy PMDG ones (yet) and freeware one is becoming not deep enough for me.

    747-400 and 777/778 would be best.

    For some reason I don't want to fly Airbus aircraft and only want to fly Boeings... don't know why.

    Note how the Nvidia video card is associated with more CPU load when it beats the AMD video card in frame rates.
    If AMD wants to compete with Nvidia it should release a game developer SDK like Nvidia that takes advantage of
    its own hardware. But it is the fault of the developers for basically favouring Nvidia because they are too lazy
    to recompile for AMD hardware. They don't even have to recode that much since the video calls are high level
    and it is the software libraries that are optimized for the hardware.
