    Salute comrades! As you probably know, the bonus system in DCS will be changed on the 1st August. Regards that, current bonus points could be used for 50% of a module's price (instead of 30% as usual) till the 1st August. I have $26 bonus but I do not need anything from the shop... what's strange somehow... 😂🤔 So would somebody from you like to buy now some module from DCS with a discount up to 50% and do not wait till next sales? If somebody has an interest, just PM me. That would be pity for me to lose such chance.

    Congrats.... I've whatched the posted stream on this event also and was excited about it in general and the performance of my JG1 comrades... 🍾 Made DCS really interesting for me; If I'd had more time available and would also have more chances to meet you guys online I would think about getting started with it. Actually this makes no sense but who knows, maybe someday in future....😉

    These types of errors are going to be chronic problems. The easiest way forward (as far as I can see it) is to say that Vonrd's data\graphics\skins\ folder is the folder of record for JG1. And that whatever he has is what we should all have. This way, even if there are spelling errors or labeling mistakes, we all have the same spelling errors or labeling mistakes. Additionally, I would think that we should stop posting small updates for download. Yes, post images of the new stuff. But, every time we update, a link should be provided for the the entire skins folder for download. With clear instructions to overwrite existing files. And if the link can be the same as what was provided before, even better. This way, we can minimize inconsistencies and prevent people from getting the wrong skins by clicking on a necro post. Just spit-balling.

    S! All, Invitation to all to fly and learn to fly the ME 262 in IL2 Sturmovik online. When: Wednesday at 8pm (eastern time) Sim: Il2, you need to have this plane in your plane set Where: we should have an MP server available (Kuban map) with AI pilots If you would like to fly (or learn to fly) the ME 262 in IL2, I'll be online tonight around 8 pm (eastern time) to fly online (MP server). I will be available to help with these: - Keymapping the special action keys for the ME 262 engines; - Steps to start the 2 engines (ignition), a bit tricky!; - Flaps settings and setup for take-off; - Flying the ME 262; - Landing the ME 262; Remember, I'm also starting to fly this plane, so I will try my best to answer most questions. Note: I know that 8pm might be early for some, but since some of the JG1 pilots meet up around 9:30 pm (eastern time) to test the GS map of Kliegmann. I didn't want to remove anyone that wanted to be available for that event. Cheers, Gen

    Messing with FC Screenshots

    I only would have gotten 3 out of 5 without cheating. 😏 The top one, 5 of 8. I might have added Lee to that if I could have seen his top wing, though. It's only because I could see a tiny bit of Hotlead's wing that made it recognizable to me.

    FC Skins anyone?

    Works for me! And so true. 😄 I've been spending a lot of time lately researching personal paint schemes of German aces in my "XXXX Aces of World War 1" series (insert plane type). One thing that is confusing is how a Staffed commander's paint scheme is handled when he's promoted to a higher position such as Geschwader commander of the same group. Many, if not most of these remained actively flying. Some of these kept some, or in some cases all of the elements of their previous staffel design. Others eventually changed it totally (Goring is an example of that). Some famous schemes were handed down intact to other pilots; some of Udet's actually came from Kirschstein and he simply added his simple "LO" to the side, and later kept some of the elements such as the striped wings on his later schemes. There are other examples of that too. So your (or our) situation is actually pretty historical, really.

    2019 German Grand Prix...

    S! Firefly, lol... Just to be good with the Mercedes Crew,... Hamilton was not supposed to enter pit stop, but he got a small scratch (look at the front wing) just before pit lane and decided to enter the pit! But those guys, were waiting for Bottas... and this is why they are running everywhere for a front wing and tyres for Hamilton!!! Pretty nice race and was very happy for the winners at the end... first time I see everyone smiling and having fun on the podium! Cheers, Gen

    Imola Track Map

    Might be a bit last minute, but here is a map of Imola to understand the turns your CC (if installed) is talking about: I extracted a lot from this blog: http://www.jtcoupal.com/post_detail.asp?id=108, lots of credit goes to JT Coupal Variante = chicane, or S-turn. Tamburello = tambourine. This is the corner where many F1 pilots have had mishaps, to include Piquet, Berger, and the fatal crashes of Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna. After the incidents, the chicane was added for safety, no longer allowing a flat out corner. Villeneuve = Named for Gilles Villeneuve, who suffered a non-fatal crash there prior to his fatal crash in Belgium. He is also memorialized by a Canadian flag in the P3 starting grid. Tosa = I couldn't find anything relative, it is the 2nd sharpest corner, look for a house on the inside of the track to realize you're racing in the city of Imola. Piratella = I couldn't find a source, either. Acque Minerali = Mineral Waters, named after the nearby park. Alta = High, it's at the top of the hill and the sharpest turns on the track. Rivazza = No luck with the origin. Two 90s and you're off to the long front straight. "You don’t race at Imola. You race in Imola." - JT Coupal

    S! All, I don't want to start a big story (and I'm not looking to change anything from last night). But after the race, I went to view my REPLAY 2 times of yesterday race and reviewed also the 2 race of Formula 2 in Hungary (from last weekend). I do understand that 2 cars side by side may bumb each other, (and don't worries guys, I was good with the first 2 bumps) and this is part of racing fast cars. The problem that I have is when a car goes outside of the race track with another car following him more than 2 laps (and was going to pass with a faster car),... the car outside of the track puts the full gas and climbs over a curbs and starts to be out of control! I do understand that some of you are very intense racers, but being hit (90 degree sideway) and being bump into the entrance of the pit stop was not a very good moment for me (putting me more than 24 seconds behind that car)! Everyone should have a chance when racing and I hope that in the next races, people will understand that when you're outside of the race track (anywhere and not just in a sand trap), you need to be very careful before pushing the gas and re-entering the race track. The same with faster car coming on your 6, I'm OK like Snaggle says to follow your race line, but I don't think that making an aggressive move that can put the 2 cars in a crash is the best way of racing. After working so hard on my setup the last 3 days before race night, I feel a bit mixed that I didn't get my chance to perform last night. Cheers, Gen

    FC Skins anyone?

    The only other custom skins done for me was the Dr.I and my P.DIII by Vonrd, both with solid red rims. The Dr.I is in the download file but the Pfalz didn't make it, though the proof was approved in March, I think. Sorry for the quick VR hangar grab, also has 3, thin red stripes on the horizontal stab and elevator, aligned lengthwise to the fuselage. The yellow/black ones were pretty much carried over from Buttzell's original skins for me in RoF, when I was in Jasta 10. I was moved to Jasta 11 when I was appointed XO and started incorporating red into my skins, along with yellow to show that I was in both. I don't recall the other RoF skins and, since VR took over my life, I don't have that game installed on my PC. If @Vonrd would like, he could mix some of these elements over the Alb, above. Which would leave you with the only yellow/black rims. Which I'll roleplay as you idolizing your favorite, former J10 pilot

    I love it Vonrd! The white makes it pop! It's just the wheels, Luft, no encroachment considered. As Klai said, it's a pretty simple design and probably easily duplicated in real life. Fred made my first skins, by the way

    FC Skins anyone?

    Well that was a mistake. I was about to comment on the similarity of my D.Va wheels and Brit's. Then I went into RoF and looked at the JG1 skins. Damned if I didn't somehow duplicate Brit's wheels without even knowing about it. It was about to become a design element on all of my planes. I need to have a careful look at all of our previous skins to make sure I'm not inadvertently copying elements of other people's designs. Brit / Vonrd, please let me know what you'd like me to do, considering I've copied you by accident. My skins can be altered and re-uploaded if you want. S! 😔 BTW Klaiber reacted to my original post, not this completely different edited version. I'm sure he was unaware of my mistake when he reacted.

    2019 German Grand Prix...

    Yeah, the way they scrambled makes me think they were completely unprepared, though they did have around 30 seconds to ready the parts and tyres before Hamilton came in. Was really happy to see so many smiling faces on the podium, doesn't happen often! Random fact: it appears this was the first time in over 30 years that two Honda engines came on the podium in the same race (IIIRC the last time that happened was during the first turbo era with Prost and Senna).

    Weird ... it was just the usual promotional e-mail I get from them when there's an update or sale or something. Maybe you unsubscribed from their mailing list? (It was a bit weird ... the e-mail said 'Please close the launcher and download this zip archive. Extract the .DLL file it contains and replace the old one located in [your IL-2 installation folder]\bin\game folder with it (Windows will ask if you want to overwrite the old file, confirm). After doing this, run the launcher again and it should update the game correctly', but there was no zip file attached. So I went to the forum and searched 'dll', which is how I found that download link.)

    Oh, the nostalgia!

    I rarely watch movies even with the convenience of Netflix and a 50" TV in my living room let alone the expense and hassle of going to a theater but as soon as I saw this trailer I turned to my girlfriend and notified her that I *will* be going to see this movie on the day of release. No questions. I'm sure it will have a lot of nostalgia content, because why wouldn't it? Star Wars Episode VII did and some of that was cool, but I hope the story line and characters are a bit more developed in Top Gun than they were in Star Wars. I have zero interest in seeing another Star Wars film, ever. There is a female pilot in the trailer (for a second) so I'm assuming she's going to have a fairly central role in the film. I'll assume she's worth her salt but I hope they give her some realistic flaws. When I was supporting Top Gun in Fallon, NV we had one female Marine student pilot come through and she almost always had trouble trying to get the jet's systems to work on the ground. Almost every launch she'd have a troubleshooter hook up to walk her through something. Other pilots some of my friends talked to confirmed that she was a bit clueless on the ground but could fly like hell. In one simulated battle she bagged an F-16 AND an F-22. *EDIT: I'm sure that USAF Raptor pilot is still taking flak for being shot down by a female Marine pilot in a Legacy Hornet that is probably older then either of them.*

    Oh, the nostalgia!

    I hate Hollywood... I think every time you buy a movie ticket it should be deductible on your income tax as a donation to the DNC. I went through training last year with a real F-14 instructor that was at Miramar when they were filming the first one and he didn't have an ax to grind... said that a few guys got to have some fun that they would not have had otherwise because the movie called for some extra duty flying, and they were all up for that.... also some general stick time without having the same pre-scripted missions, so it was a change of pace. Said that Cruise and Edwards were OK guys and that Edwards was the only one that didn't hurl out of the whole cast. Did have some really surprising things to say about Kelly McGillis… and if you have seen her lately... you can pretty well project that she won't be appearing in the film... ( OUCH ) On a lighter note.... what a guy... one of my students last week was a Hornet driver for about 8 years... and that crazy goof-ass just got into the USAF Reserves and is going to the A-10.... he has been sending me some pics and I have put him on to the DCS stuff and he was really knocked back by all that. Got a real kick out of the Hornet and showing me all the stuff that has changed... laughing about "yeah, I saw that and I knew guys that had that in their jet but they were gone by the time I got in" I asked him if the only reason he was going back in and to the hawg was just to get to fire the gun and he said yeah.... pretty much that's it..... I don't blame him. I didn't realize that it stabilized the flight controls prior to firing.... wow.... he said the gun in the hornet was really hard to hit, the gun in the A-10 is really hard to miss.
