Been flying your sim since you released it. Been flying it a lot lately.
The immersion into the BoB just draws you in. You did a great job with that.
Nice to play a full featured sim again. All the little details you provide.
Just thought you'd like to hear.

And although the Spitfire will be a release day purchase, I'm getting quite used
to the Hurricane!

I am having a great time playing this sim. Over the years, since I joined here, I have tinkered and farted around with many flight sims. Now that I am recently retired I have more time, and I am finding WOTR to be exactly the type of sim I need. I love the era, I love that it is single player focused. The Campaign is a blast. I love the feeling of accomplishment of landing back safely, and reporting my kills.

I've been away from flying the sim for a while now thanks to a new job. I'm really looking forward to getting into the Spitfire tomorrow!

Just bumping this as have just had another absolutely fantastic mission experience in this game, and this was despite the mission actually being the death of my pilot who had so, so may missions flown; it was a brilliant experience. Tangling with Spitfires and Hurricanes over London in the last mission I thought 'd had the better of them, they'd only had a bare scrape of some hits on me....but just as I was heading off home thinking of the new kill being painted on (I'd watched him spiral into the ground), the engine slowly loses pressure and when trying to put the aircraft down on a road in some rolling hills with many trees around, the impact is too much and I'm dead.

The question is, do I now start up a Spitfire career... or do I go for revenge as another 109 pilot, or stick with the charming Hurricane when being the Allies...

I started a random squadron and ended up in a hurricane, what was such a marvellous random event is that I picked Nottingham as the city of birth of my pilot, no reason, just the first place i thought of. When I then went through the squadron pilots after the first mission I saw a couple from NI, a Welshman, a New Zealander (nice touch) and then my actual wingman,... from Nottinghamshire! It's just data, but what a brilliant coincidence and it just loads on the immersion by the bucketful!

I'll also quickly chime in and add my thanks. This sim is incredibly immersive and I'm really impressed by the build quality and atmosphere. Here's a couple of quick screenshots. I love having a video card that can actually keep up now!

Nice one Captain,I upgraded a while back now from a R9 390 to a GTX 1070. The leap was incredible. Glad your happy with your new card.
Great shots btw,yep WOTR is getting better and better.

I'm late to the party, as usual, but want to add my thanks too. Have finally picked this up and, like in WOFF, jumped right into the immersion pool. Brilliant. Channel convoy patrol duty, intercepting Stuka's then getting bounced by Me109 escorts, a fierce scrap, maybe a 'kill', then home in time for game-pie and a glass of rye. I don't mind Biggin Hill...someone recommended the Kings Arms Pub but, well, I've just arrived from Canada, eh. Oh, must dash, dispersal hut phone just rang...


Kind regards,
Leaf
