I just read some other replies here.

SimHQ ain't what it used to be. I'd expect some of this schoolgirl snippy crap from 13 years olds. You guys used to be grownups.

I agree that enthusiasm is low for this mouse friendly, playable on your phone soon, subscription based, fidelity flight sim that is riding the coat tails of a name like Microprose.

But at least I have seen us go from assumptions to actually criticizing a detailed model.

That 3D model looks very, very small to me. I suppose the idea is to have lots of a/c in the air at once. And what is the antenna wire going to? Looks too low to be the mast.


We will know soon enough, october is release :), guess they must be small or otherwise the server would not hold up hundreds of planes in the air.

JimBobb,when you are at the next Microprose board meeting (I jest) can you see what they have in the pipeline for the single player?

As I stated earlier in this thread,I've never played Warbirds and am unlikely to start now.

This P-51 has "counter-rotating" propellers?
Look at the blades angles, to not say that their blades tips seems have more pitch than root.
Or someone is joking. biggrin

The rivets are huge. No P-51 I've ever seen has rivets that big. And I've seen them in person, up close... a few running on the runway.

Warbirds used to be huge. I even flew in a squad, the "Red Raiders". Anyone remember -bobn-?

13 year olds, eh? Well, I guess that explains my continual desire for an innocent make out session to the music of Styx. biggrin

Lighten up, Francis. Life's too short and fragile to get so confrontational on a message board dedicated to a recreational outlet. wink

13...and Summertime vacation (today is the first day of Summer, BTW). Only now, almost 40 years later, do I fully appreciate just how much incredible calorie-burning exercise I was getting riding miles a day on my single-gear BMX bicycle in the Summertime.



The rusty wire that holds the cork that keeps the anger in
Gives way and suddenly it’s day again
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset, hmph
Could be the human race is run

You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking
