I was just wondering if I could get some critique on my flying. Keep in mind I've only had the game for 6 days.

Can't. I have to critique myself first.

It's a self-critique thread.

Go with it, and don't be afraid to be harsh with yourself.

Your flying sucks, after all./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

You just like flaunting your script-enabled posts around, don't you Commie?

Well, My posts sure do look naked now, I'll give you that.

The one point of solace that I can find, is that Vecdran's posts now look like crap too.

See, my posts looked like crap even with scripts enabled, so It's not nearly as bothersome /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If his posts bother you, kust run Mozilla and selectively disable enough javascript till the forum looks reasonable.

I don't mind people making fancy scripts. It's far more benign than doing something destructive.

BTW, I actually fired up IE to look at Commie's post. It's not bad. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Like what? Putting meta tags into a post to redirect it to another website?

Funny how the forum scripts were pulled shortly after that little trick occurred, Theo. Coincidence?

No, the redirect wasn't destructive, but the outcome was. Fool.

Critique? Just keep practicing, dude, as there are lots of areas for you to improve in. SA, deflection, energy management(what's with all the flaps?), etc.

You will only get better with time. And try downloading some other people's tracks, to see what they do. If you see some moves you like, copy them. Incorporate them. Become them. Second nature after awhile.

I looked at your track. If you've only been flying for 6 days, then your doing good.

I think you need to be able to fly without looking out the windshield. You find your target, and you keep switching back to forward view to see where you are. In time you'll stop doing that, so you can always keep your eye on the enemy.

You were using combat flaps at times that made no sense. Just pull the throttle back more to slow down. Only after pulling all the way back, and then you want to slow down more, will you use flaps.

Get closer to shoot. Much closer. I saw you take shots at 900m.

Overall, you did good. Keep training../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'm getting to happy with the flaps, I agree. I use them to slow me down in a hard turn.
