I am getting very bored with Il-2, the stupid AI and WWII in general.

For the past year or so, I have only come here to banter with Ploughman (whom I have somehow offended) and some of the other funny guys (not Aimail or Raaaaid, who are not funny).

Blechh, same old missions, over and over. I don't enjoy online. I can't see me spending a gazillion dollars to run BOB.

Burnout.

Get some skins, build some missions and try something new. Or better yet, Read a Book about aerial combat. That is what I do to keep me in the pit. I recomend, Airwar by Edward Jablonsky (very old book). If you can get a copy of Black Cross Red Star you will eat the book then fly like a maniac. When I get tired of same old, I either fly some bombing missions (low level ussually) or start reducing the ammount of friendly AI. Ever try intercepting 12 IL2s with 8 La escort with just you and your wingie? You can actually feel exhausted after a while. But if you ever manage to make it back to base, NOONE will be able to wipe the grin from your face for days.
If flying is your thing, you can try another sim like Wings over Vietnam. After poping a few Migs into oblivion, you will feel betta! But you will be back to IL2 for its variety and reality.
From High Up to Down Low, nothing is better.
Here is some motivational shots.

Despair. When get a bit bored of IL-2 then I just go on Lock on instead. It is challenging and enjoyable to fight in a different style than are used to. I do sort of agree with you in a way about BoB though, because even though I will most likely get it, I don't think that it will hold my interest for anywhere near as long as IL-2 (which simulated the entire time span of WW2 rather that a short snippet of it). I would love to see a proper Korean war sim because not only were jets in the 50s so cool looking, but the technology of the time means that people who are familiar with WW2 aircraft won't be too out of their depth.

I got bored with IL2 two years ago. With so many simulators out there (silent hunter, t-34 vs tiger, wwiionline, ...), IL2 seems obsolete, although it still is the best in ww2 airwar.

Still, this community is lively enough to make me return once in a while to see how you're doing.

I guess the forum (or that new yellow one) will return to its past glory when Oleg releases that BoB:SoW thing. If the project is still there and he isn't just having fun with us waiting for it, year after year and being content with a few screenshots that he had posted a year ago again. Wasn't it March 2006 the first date that was announced in play.com. Only two years have passed (lol) and his loyal supporters are still there.

I took a break from "IL2" a while back...I didn't think about it, I didn't research anything, I didn't go-online...Then one day I picked up the game (after 6 months?) and I sucked...I couldn't hit anything, and I stalled out frequently. (For me) the challenge was back...

I'm not saying this will happen for you but that's ok...just put the game down...it's ok. If your not having fun (or challenged by the game) why play it(?).


ME, I think I'm going to check out "Lock-on" again...(LOL)

pretty much what Warrington said,I'm haveing a bit of a drull time with IL-2 ATM too so i thought i would install lock-on(with the flaming cliffs expansion) that i bought a while ago but never really got into, and now I'm having a ball with it, certainly very different to IL-2 but certainly a hell of a lot of fun too,(also re kindled my IL-2 intrest too for some reason)

Flight & Air Combat Simulations (http://www.gozr.net/iocl/viewforum.php?f=36&sid=6e06587f47b55f7e8d0540b735008135)

head over to this site and scope out some of the mods and add-ons you can get for it too(all legal too!),more then enough to keep most aviators happy for some time,plus the learning curve will keep ya pretty busy.

good luck with the rut

I really need to pick up Flaming Cliffs at some point. I think the main reason I haven't is because I'm still engrossed with IL-2 right now.

But, I kinda miss flying the Su-27. I love that plane. Maybe I'll brush up on my jet skills tonight.

I get the same feeling with the god old UBIZOO, I almost never post here anymore, I just read stuff, but there is not much new here, almost like there is not that much more to discuss, we have already covered almost everything there is about WWII and aviation on these boards. Not that much new happens here, these days. Thats probably why so many of these topics becomes pie throwing whiner parties all the time.
Im looking forward to when Knights Of The Sky WWI sim comes.
then we will have some new exiting stuff to discuss http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I suggest you quit.

Either you will then find something better to do, or you'll come back to IL2.

BTW, if you don't enjoy online flying, the chances are that you haven't found the right server yet...

Been feeling the same recently (maybe it`s a new year blues thing). But I found a solution! I made some new aircraft skins and posted some rather fetching nude pinups of ladies on the side.

I think getting bored is very normal for our hobby time if we are not getting what we need. For me I need to be learning new stuff and challenged (code, history, strategy,etc).

The key (I think) is to be challenged in our hobby time. We must continue to learn new things and have new experiences. I guess it may be different for others. Just playing a game is not enough for me, I need to contribute so I turned to coding C++.

I do love the history and research, however. The Flying Tigers history and game concepts have been very interesting for me.

The stupid AI, constant PK's, Jedi Knight level FLAK, and the most stoopid scoring system of any game today.It is real fun (offline and onwhine) to take 10 minutes to get to bombing altitude and another 10 minutes to target to have either flak PK your pilot, or the Oleg trademark, "rudder damaged, -insert favorite control surface here- damaged", or the best one, if you survive that, to have some ***whipe ram you just before you land after you sunk the big ship, then get just 10% of the points for such a flight.

Way to go Oleg, hopefully BoB (vaporware) will fix that.

Yep, even with the "unspoken", this is really boring now. Onwhine has been for a while withthe "fight with honor http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif" wonder woman servers that EVERYONE thinks are the shnizzle http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif.

Hopefully, just hopefully, BoB will be better all the way around, and not just the eye candy.

I'm not bored with Il-2 (okay, I am bored with the lack of 6d0f, and that's all I'm going to say about that), I've just reached the limitations of my PC.

Just find another sim if you have time to kill. Falcon 4.0 is pretty cool, and challenging.

Who hasn't hit this wall, more than once?

I have several times in the 7 years of this sim.

Since Christmas morning, I've been enjoying, getting cheated online wilst playing COD4.

I'm having a swell time regardless of all the Hacks bla bla. I expected it in a FPS so no suprizes.

When SOW comes out or IL2 comes back to its own. I will begin to enjoy the WW2 air war again.

No I'm not going to learn some dang jet sim, regardless of how good it may be. Props,cylinder, and guns for me. Well maybe if it was a Korea setting, I like the early Migs and the Sabre, who doesn't?

As far as Online goes, you must get on Comms and make some friends. With out the vocal interaction, and the skillfull battles brought on via godd communication, I'd of quit for good long ago.

Truth is no game/sim can keep someone constantly engaged. i`ve seen kids on other forums say they`re bored afier 2 months of release! I see `em say things like, "How can the game keep me constantly excited, blah, blah!"

I say hook yourself up to 100000 volts cos that`s the only way you`re going to stay constantly excited.

Considering IL2`s been going for 7 years it`s a marvel that people are getting bore just now...

Even I get bored of IL2 sometimes, the same routine, typical missions, but that`s how it was in war. If you do something long enough you will eventually get bored.
