Why is it that the 262/229 ASI is still screwed up?

The one on the He-162 works properly, and this has been mentioned many, many times.

It should be a simple matter, particularly given that the 162 has basically the same thing that is fully functional.

I can understand that they need to have a triage and get to the most important things first and that this might be low on the list, but.......... it's gotta be a quick fix, why couldn't they get it in?

It really would be nice to be able to properly fly the LW jets without the speedbar, and in those 2 that can't happen thanks to that issue.

Kinda surprised nobody has asked before actually. lol

Ask Tsisqua. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It goes with the rose the Eagle is carrying. It's the Tsalagi flag.

Whats that goofy looking flag on the right? I see the US flag in the middle, which I take to mean you are a proud American, but the one of the right has me confused.

Confused? Are you being sarcastic, or serious? Text eliminates so much subtlety unfortunately.

The right flag is the flag for the Confederates.

Gee, I thought everybody knew that. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Me too. Which is why I asked if he was being sarcastic. Just wasn't sure and didn't want to assume.

Since this has been hijacked to being about my sig, I'll just "explain" it. lol

It started, for real, as just something that was intended to include various aspects of me, and maybe be just a bit on the "edge".

The idea turned into something that I think is just damn cool looking, plus the satisfaction of having created it myself makes it even cooler (for me). Kinda sucks what the transparent gif export did to the edges though. :/

Anyway, perhaps subconciously, perhaps accidentally, it all goes together better than intended.

The Tsalagi (Cherokee) were allies of the CSA, so those flags connect on that level, and I'm part (too small a part IMPO) Tsalagi, and a "rebel" at heart. I'm also a true patriot, which ties Old Glory and the CSA battle standard together in a way that might be too much to try to explain. lol (it's purely political (having to do with issues of consitutionality) and has nothing to do with what people try to associate that battle flag with)

The Eagle, well, that's obvious.....right? And it's carrying a white rose. A "Cherokee Rose". The Roses that populated the Trail of Tears and are said to have come from the tears of the women soaking into the ground.

Recently I thought that the Eagle carrying it could be interpreted in a negative way, but it was intended to 'symbolize' a unity and connection.

Above all that, I think each part is cool. Together, they're even cooler. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

BTW Koro, just to pick a nit, that is actually the CSA battle flag, not the flag that is "for" the confederated, in the same way that Old Glory is for the US.

This is the CSA flag - http://members.tripod.com/Johns_Views/image/confed3.gif

That's the third and last official flag. And the "stars and bars" is actually the first CSA flag - http://members.tripod.com/Johns_Views/image/starbar.gif

When the question was asked, it was the first time that I actually noticed the Tsalagi flag in your sig, DDT. There are seven stars to represent the seven Cherokee clans (or are they called "squadrons" here? LOL). The symbol in the middle is a seven pointed star, for the same reason.

The Cherokee nation had many brave soldiers on both sides of the "War Between The States", but the average citizen was neutral. The Cherokee nation had an entire regiment fighting for the Confederacy under the command of General Stand Watie. It was the last group of the Civil War to surrender. Watie's men had run out of ammo, and had, at the end, pinned down a Union regiment. When it became apparent that Watie was out of ammo, they were rushed upon by the Union soldiers, only to retreat one more time as they realized that, during the battle, Waties men had been preparing a volley of arrows. The Union soldiers continued to be pinned down until word arrived to Watie that the war had ended. Unfortunately for the Cherokee, they were forced to cede land, and freedoms to the USA, even though Watie's regiment had voluteered on their own, and not with the blessings of Principal Chief, John Ross, or the nation.

No bitterness here over old wars . . . I am a patriot too, both Cherokee, and USA citizen.

Do I happen to know you from another online game perhaps? Everquest?

Does the term Sage Council ring a bell?

No. But you have my curiosity now. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Only online games I've played are QuakeWarrior (err - "MechWarrior 4"), which I did as a different name (way back then), and the entire IL2 series thus far.

Just for your curiosity, Everquest (EQ) is a massive multiplayer online game based on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game type. Players operate toons that roam the environs of Norrath and its moons.

Sage Council is what's known as a guild, a group of 10 or more people get together and form an organization and in turn aide each other and have generally a good time through the realm of Norrath and Luclin.

Sadly Sage Council no longer exists in EQ, and unfortunately the group that arose from the ashes of the S.C. is now pretty much defunct as well ... all members joining other guilds.

The guy I was thinking you might be is named Sky, (cant recall his last name). He and his wife are Cherokee I believe and he has/had a couple websites up regarding that heritage.

Myself, I'm mostly Scottish. Hadden being a sept (sub_family) of the Clan Graham, but I do have 1/4 Cherokee in me, and have unfortunately neglected that aspect of my background tending to lean more towards my Scottish heritage.

I like yer sig. very original. I also happen to be related to Lt. Gen. Ambrose Powell Hill. 3rd Corps Army of Northern Virginia. I'm also related to Maj Henry Hunt, Commander of the Artillery of the Army of the Potomac.

Any how ... Thanks for the reply. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
