Testing IL2 1946

She's getting on in the years now, but we still like to jump in the saddle occasionally.

Those people that I know have IL 46 installed, have also BAT installed.

Like I said before Rowns. Bat is unreasonable for some people to install. It's over 30GB in size and ads a lot of things the group won't use (Jets, WW1, etc)
I mean, I had fast motor cars and fast motor bikes, and when I wasn't crashing airplanes, I was crashing motor bikes. It's all part of the game — Sir Harry Broadhurst

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH well its fine the only people who wouldn't really like it are people who believe graphics are the only thing that make a good game
4./JG26_LuftAsher: How is it not super common knowledge at this point that I'm a total flaming fagaloon?
4./JG26_Kildren: because their is only like 3 of us to spread it?
4./JG26_LuftAsher: I literally sucked a dick last night.

4./JG26_LuftAsher: Everyone in ACG can stick it, brother

Despite the fact I've been making missions quietly and now have a back-log? I haven't told anyone I've been doing it so I'm not bothered by people asking "When's a mission going to be ready..." I like to take my time. :wank:

When's a mission going to be ready...? :lol: :popcorn:

A bit like 501 really :D

a) Opinion, just like Geordie's opinion. And there are plenty of opposite opinions out there, hence wanting to test this out (note that "Is 1946 any good?" is a different question to "Is 1946 any fun for flying missions with my mates?"). For what it's worth, I expect it will be fine, but then again I expected to like Fallout 4 as well.

b) I've heard people talking about problems with flight models as well, so clearly for some people there's more to it than graphics. So some sort of test is in order. Again, I personally expect to have fun, but I'm keeping an open mind :D

I must go up to the skies again, to the peace of silent flight, To the gull’s way, and the hawk’s way, and the free wings’ delight;
And all I ask is a friendly joke with a laughing fellow rover, And a large beer, and a deep sleep, when the long flight’s over.

You didn't like Fallout 4!? What's wrong with you!

We're all different Geordie, that's kind of my point.

As for Fallout 4, it disappointed me so I decided to shelve it. Life's too short...
