  1. This is going to be a complex, high poly count model. I hope it doesn't bring most of our rigs to their knees!
  2. "yes, the corsair was used all the way up to Vietnam if i remember correctly." Sorry Captain, but you remember incorrectly. The Corsair did not see combat over Viet Nam. The last time it saw combat with U.S. forcers was over Korea.
  3. I remember the IL-2 1946 campaign very well since I flew those missions so many times. Incredibly immersive. As are the first two DCS Spit campaigns. But, yes, the Channel map is so much better than the Normandy map. Too bad there isn't a way to move those campaigns over to the newer map without completely redoing all of those missions.
  4. Can't imagine why you'd want to fly a 737 in here. Where would you go? It really wouldn't be all that interesting. That's what MSFS 2020 is for. It's incredible, in my opinion. DCS for military types and MSFS for civilian flying. They are the only two flight sims on my computer. I just can't see any reason for any others.
  5. Oh Hell, let's not get all serious over an airplane in a video game. I think we have different definitions of the phrase, "Freaking Out." My post was meant to be tongue in cheek, and I was actually expecting at least one, "lol!" However, if we wanted to get serious....yeah, an animated computer model of an airplane versus a real nuts and bolts metal machine, twelve thousand or so of them as a matter of fact. Well, yeah....it's been a little long. And with DCS being my favorite combat flight simulator I'm not sitting around waiting for it. I'm flying "something else" almost every night.' Hell, if we never get it, we never get it.
  6. Yeah, I've already said in another post that, in the same time that this model is taking, the real F4U was designed, flight tested and then saw combat in WW2. Pretty soon I'm going to have to include Korea. Hopefully not the 1960's Soccer War.
  7. I watched a film on Netflix last night. I'd never heard of it, and I think Netflix just released it. It involves Mossies, which is why I'm posting it here. It's a Danish film about the RAF's bombing of the Gestapo headquarters in Copenhagen in March of 1945. The scenes bounce back and forth between RAF crews, the resistance people that they tried to release, and the civilians who ultimately paid the biggest price for the raid. It's a heartbreaking and brutal film from the first ten minutes and does not let up on you. It's not the "feel good movie of the year!" But watch it. I thought it was well done.
  8. So. if they did this, what would you do with it? What would be the point, really?

    F6F Hellcat

    I have never heard of anyone referring to the F4U's nose as cute. It's like saying Jimmy Durante's nose was cute. All right, I know you kids don't know who Jimmy Durante was. Massive, yes. Cute, no.
  10. I never really saw the purpose of these mods that use the Mustang. You are in the Mustang cockpit, using the Mustang flight model. You are flying the Mustang, not the F6F. Great as AI, though. Maybe someone will do a TBM Avenger mod using the Yak. Flying the Corsair in a combined F4U, F6F, TBM air strike would be very immersive. And now I see that there is a bunch of AI Japanese airplanes. Plent out there for a terrific Pacific air war experience. Where is that Corsair!?

  12. Yeah, if I were a flight sim developer, that would surely be my number one priority to fix.
  13. I just read that Flying Iron has a BF109 G-6 in the works. So we can chase each other around over Europe, instead. That works.
