..or has the patch delay made everyone stop having fun with it,and what are you flying the most,FB or PF?
Haven't started FB or PF up for a long time myself,nothing to do with the patch just lost interest,which will come back,always does.

Why should patch delay take the fun outh of it? Isn´t there still more than enough to do without betty and few maps?

And answer to question, yes i´m still enjoying it.

Even nopw, without the patch, I believe that I know somewhere between 5 and 10 % of the game, why should I stop having fun with it ?

I love it.

Flying the online wars with my squad is the best gaming I've ever done. Patches are just icing on the cake for a brilliant product with a great online community.

I purchased IL2 shortly after it was first released having never played much on flight sims before. Just could not get on with or understand 'full realism' so I played everything on the easy setting!
Since that time I have bought FB, AEP, PF and Battle over Europe and gradualy increased my skills and abilities to fly on full settings!
I love the whole series, and while I wait for the patch I'm on it every day, or researching on the internet getting flight info or researching history concerning any of the missions I want to play.
Hope that answers your question? I never cease to have fun with this great sim! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The same here! I began to fly in September 2003 and still fly almost each day with our squadmates and others on our server.

If I could vaguey qoute you TB, it is fascinating how completely different guys from half-accross the globe, not speaking the same language could find themselves having SO much in common.

You always find something new in this sim and in the community around it.

Last time we have invited TB to our server (WT_Dedicated) my squadmates were surprised flying with a foreign guy, listening to the English on the radio and actually understanding what was going on there...

"I felt just like I was there 60 ago, when Czechoslovakian pilots were fighting BoB knowing only few words in English"....WT_JIGR

So if you guys fly online, go connect to TS server. Even if they do not speak the same language you can understand.

I've been flying this series since 2001 and it just gets better and better everyday for me. When I find myself getting a little bored with the same old, same old, I just start flying planes that I don't usually fly or I join more co-ops or different DF servers with various settings.

H*e*l*l, I even do some air racing or aerobatics flying sometimes, just to keep the interest up.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

There is so much to this sim. I love flying scripted servers with objectives and teamplay. I pride myself on being a good wingman and protecting my M8s. To me there is no greater satisfaction than coming to the rescue of a M8 in trouble and actually clearing his six.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I find that it creates a great give and receive atmosphere on the server and pretty soon, I've got people letting their own bogey fly away as they turn to cover my six. Gotta love it!

The other thing is to get on comms with some of the pilots around here and really immersing into the sim. There are some d*a*m*n*e*d funny people around here and comms is the best way to train and pick up tips from the verterans of this series.

This is the only game that I play online and I fire it up at least once a day, even if it's only for an hour or so. So much to do with this sim, so little time. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I would suggest you really haven't looked into the possibilities this game allows. Try learning the full mission builder and enjoy the game you have and obviously do not understand rather than whining for the right now patch instead of the right patch, which I'm in no hurry for.

I'm intrigued by this aspect as well (as we've discussed before) and not only find it interesting, but also a fun learning experience.

I had similar thoughts. I had a really good time. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

S!

I have our TS info labeled in one of my "quick-notes" and post it regularly while flying online. I find that many don't even know what TS is or if they do, they are unaware of the TS server we have available.

Many times people don't join because they're self-conscious of the language barrier and may be slightly intimidated to actually join. As Schmouddle said, you don't have to completely understand the language, but just listening can be a help as well as somewhat educational.

For those who may be interested, here is the greatergreen public TS info:

IP- hostess.darktech.org (yes, type the words in the IP address)
Password- servus

I actually think you have a point, I have noticed a gentle decrease of "pilots" flying the past 2-3 months, not at least among fellow squadmembers and sistersquad-members (F16 and F19). We have all been spoiled in the past getting new stuff every now and then, and this has kept us alert and interested. The other theory is that Spring, good weather and outdoors activities are keeping us from flying. I actually believe it is something in between.

Ah, I've missed one of your static campaigns! Is it available for download yet - your static campaigns are always a pleasure to work through, and the P38 is a tricky but rewarding aircraft to fly.



As to the original question, a good Squadron is where it's at. A group of enthusiasts who spend a lot of time on self improvement go a long way in increasing the life of this sim, virtually indefinitely. Any patch will just be welcome icing on the cake.

And i suggest you'd try learning to understand what you read first.

Think you've hit the nail on the head Orheim.It's gotta be a bit of both.

I see the IL2 snobs are out in full force today - Learn to ignor them. Yea - the sim blows after a few months with no update - But I'm sure the patch/add on$$ will be well worth the wait.

My stepson's 'travelling' baseball league just started yesterday. Not many days off, but at least most of the time I'll be home by 8:00PM!

Still, that leaves a couple hours less for gaming... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

There's only one thing that will stop me coming back to IL-2. And that's BOB. When a new game i'm interested in comes out I play that for a bit but flight sims are my favorite and there is no better combat flight sim then IL-2.

After a couple of years of playing this sim I still get my kicks from taking a plane to high altitude, diving for as much speed as I can get and watching as the wings rip off as I pull up. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I just finished the capaign the Icefire built, probably had as much fun playing it as he did making it. Thanks Ice, it was great http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Besides, once you discover the FMB, IL2 turns into a black hole that will suck away all your free time. Ok, I'm off to make another mission for my campaign!

This game is just too freakin' endless in it's possibilities. I still am fully entertained and challenged when I get to play it.

But, spring is in full force. I'm back playing disc golf because the weather is soooo perfect!!

Besides that, my nightschool class is taking up my remaining time because of a final exam and a term project, both next week. After that I'll get back up to my usual playing time.

Yeah...had the outfit out today and rode off to deliver a newly-built computer to a Buddhist teaching centre, perched on a hill overlooking a beautiful river valley in South Devon. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Looking down to the Dart, I could see more more shades of green than I remember existed, more even than a VVS skin pack. The last 3 or 4 miles is on a private road, so I pulled off the full-face and chucked it into the sidecar - what a blast!

Dentist tomorrow - another great excuse - and the Navigator has decided that she wants in on the act as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif so that's the weekend taken care of! I heard the ominous sound of rustlings in the attic too, right about where the camping gear is stored.

Maybe I should build one of those amazing sim-pits that occasionally flash across these pages - only I should make it a sim-sub and start into Silent Hunter. But no...she'd be there, waving cups of tea and plates of cake in front of the periscope, or hammering on the connimg-tower with a big wrench..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif
