Hmmm yes I guess we need to do something positive. I am positively pleased that I found someone willing to trade me his copy of Flanker 2.0 for my Typhoon, I hope he enjoys it, EFT sure is the Anti-Flanker.

To reduce negative posts(and unfortunately reduce this forums traffic significantly) perhaps all those unhappy with the game should follow my move to the Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

BTW guys have you tried Nascar4? The Wife got it for me a few weeks ago for our 13th Anniv. Having never been interested in racing before I gotta say Im hooked, even had to go get the Ms wheel.

And I am not constantly whining. That's downright offensive. Go, off your high horse, and read my posts on everything and anything.

I do not whine. I made a series of posts, usually as part of a wider discussion which were constructive, and rarely critical. There are small problems. There are design decisions which I question. And the discussion was civilised...at least what I or Manteau or Sixpack or whomeever might say was civilsed.

But ok, ok, I give up. I bow to your infinite wisdom. I shall fall upon my sword, or whatever else is handy, a butterknife.

But, I shall say this much. Just as Steve Hunt did not come to my apartment with a gun forcing me to play this, no one is forcing you to read this forum.

That's great advice, some of you should have done that sooner. I wish all the whiners who don't enjoy Typhoon would just quit crying about it and go play Nascar or whatever... Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

Good bye to bad rubbish!

Cheers,

You only point seems to be that bitching is bad. But you make it by.. err.. bitching.

In fact one might go so far as to say that you are a big fat bitch , the biggest fat bitch in the whole wide world.....

How's about we all cool it a little. Knocking the game is one thing, but getting personal is going beyond the boundaries that SimHQ has set out.

Let's keep it civil...OK?

Manteau, THE best $10.00 Ive EVER spent was on EF2000 V2.0.
You find a way to mod it you let me know.

I apologise Andy.

This thread started out in fun, and I did not make that clear. It was my mistake.

Gavin,

I don't think you need to apologise (although you did and it was an honourable thing to do). There is only one person in this thread that has insulted others, avoided there questions, not been able to see other peoples points of view and has been damn right rude... and it aint you Gavin.

I wont point the individual out, but it's not that hard to identify the culprit (we all know who I mean... and it's not you Andy ).

I'm slightly bemused as I've seen people say lesser things on this forum and get a warning about them.

Gavin,

Was going to post some answer's to your 'More Than 1 Kuznetsov' ideas here but Manteau started a better thread topic specific to Carrier Ops.

Frankly, all I can say is
Better Game = Less Bitching.

Fact of life. Get over it, cheerleaders.

There are two types of posters in this forum.
The whiners and the people who whine about the whiners. Tiger your no better than the ones complaining about the game, at least they have something factual to complain about, you just bitch because you want to hear yourself talk.
If someone goes out and spends $40 on a game that doesn't work as advertised the that's a lagit gripe. I can't count how many times I spent 40-50 bucks on a sim/game only to find out it sucked. I would be a little upset myself. I gets old after awhile sinking money into a genre that produces 9 crappy sims out of 10.
Of course I don't own Typhoon and don't plan too. The hardcore people out there should have gotten the hint when it was said "This game will be dumbed down to attract a newer audiance.""" um, hint,hint.
Anyway, I probably shouldn't have posted anything, but I figured I would check to see if anything was fixed at all, But I see it hasn't.
so bitch away. lol

Ok, Tiger, you almost had me convinced. Fired it up again. Tried to get my undercarraige up before hitting 200 knots but not usually airborne by then. It goes downhill after that. Absolutely no suspension of disbelief. The cockpit graphics are the most plug-ugly I've ever seen; makes me want to go take a shower. Sitting around waiting for the computer to set up another dorkey spy trawler ident mission seems to be longer than a five year sentence for auto theft. Talk about alone in the sky; comms don't help. Graphics are sure pretty but the gameplay is really lame. Cruise missles doing bfm's really get me laughing. No way around it: you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. No hard feelings though. You pays your money & you takes your chances. I realize this is a dying genre but the product must still stand on its own merit. Life is too short to try to take a lot of my time trying to squeeze some life into a sim like this. Tiger, I'm really glad you enjoy this game & I really hope there are a lot of people who agree with you. I really do wish all involved all the success in the world & they go on to make more & better. I wouldn't bet on it.

Speaking of the fact that some people have managed to contain the russians to a large degree. I am doing a level 2 campaign where I have basically contained them to about 15 sectors with no Tanks. What puzzles me is that there are several convoys of ships sitting withing 60 miles of the shoreline which I'm sure have never gone ashore. I'm thinking that this is perhaps a small bug in the campaign.
My trouble now is that my new tanks are still on the other side of the island, and the war is stalled!

I'd like to add something about the types of people who post here. And that is people who bitch about others bitching. Which, and don't get me wrong on this, I don't have a problem with - but it would be nice if some people could consider people's comment before hanging them up to dry. Be sure to correct me if I'm wrong.

You couldn't get off the ground at 200Kts? I can pull loops at that speed straight off the runway! It gets off the ground at around the 120-130ish Kts for me and keeps on going! I personaly don't play in the cockpit, I would rather play HUD full screen, much better field of view when using cannons. Anyway, the reason that the cockpit is a bit bare is to force you to keep your head up, ohh look at all those twidly things.....oh crap MIG! If you look at the news reals, they say that Russia has some advanced weapons..... in 2015 I would say it is VERY possible for a cruise missile to carry decoys and have basic evasion manouvers programmed into them. Hell if we can now build a system that detects, identifies, priorotises, jams, and dumps chaff/flares all on its own, i.e DASS, I think someone can build something that jinks when it detects a missile launch

No offence meant to anyone.....

valleyboy:
My comments about trying to get my uc up before I go over 200 knots was a disparaging comment about the arcade fm. I guess I'm not very good at sarcasm. I really don't think those stubby little wings make cruise missles into good dogfighters but whatever it takes to suspend your disbelief is fine. I guess it was Tiger's comment about NASCAR that set me off. NASCAR4 & GPL are harder than most any flight sim I've tried & if you don't think so then try to race the ai at 100% in N4 on any short oval & just stay in the race to completion. Sheez... I really wanted to like Typhoon but it fell flat for me for reasons that other people more descriptive than I have enumerated elsewhere on this board. I do think that boards like this should be open to any & all criticism of the product. I regret not paying attention to the criticism before I bought but I get caught up in the hype just like a lot of other people do. Enough said. Enjoy Typhoon.
ScabFace, out

Good points valleyboy, Personally I'm too busy trying to destroy those cruise missiles to really care to much whether they're realistic or not. Typhoon is a sim wrapped around a "what if" scenerio. If i have problems with the game (and I do have some issues with it); that certainly isn't one of them.
