Apparently AAA had run up a large bill with their host and the person responsible for the site could not be found in time to organise payment. It has now been removed permanently.

It's demise seems to have gone unmentioned on other IL-2 websites. True, it had pretty much become a clown factory for the under 16, hooray-for-everything crowd. But it was once the centre of the Il-2 modding community. I especially remember the earliest days in the map making area. When every discovery and advancement was shared and discussed. It was a good time that. And one worth remembering.

Eh? Other than the 'banana forum', which doesn't allow mention of mod sites at all, every Il-2 site I've looked at has commented on it.

In any case, it looks likely that it, or something like it, will start up again at another location. I'd like to think that this incident would reduce some of the inter-modder-site bickering, but it seems not to...

That's too bad, though I'm not all that surprised to hear about it. I recently tried to register to the site so I could sample some cockpit and sound mods, but I never got confirmation for my registration. I tried to contact their "admin" on numerous attempts but I never got a reply. I just said to hell with it...

Just looking at the site as of late and one gets the impression that maintenance has waned. With a few excellent exceptions, it's become a bit of a hodge-podge soup of amateurish, half-baked mods, with wildly varying degrees of quality. And there were a lot of mods. A whole lot...

As generally a vanilla player I am really not that sad to see it go. I don't mind mods that change sounds and textures. I might use them myself. But when I need a lease 1 mod if not 2 hardcore mods to play on a server it is getting ridiculous.

I like stock IL-2 and have never really wanted for anything else besides perhaps the DCG which I have to admit I got from AAA so go figure but that is besides the point. And some new maps but besides that 4.10 will be out soon so hey what more could a flyboy want?

I am a little upset about that.
I gave them a great deal of money to keep it going, back when they were THE site to go to.

I would have to say, with regret, that "hooray for everything" is a fairly accurate description towards the end.
Amongst the refuse, there were some really good mods there.

It was sad to see it go, but I think in the end folks were going more to SaS then AAA anyway as I feel that only the hardcore stayed at AAA.

I did think that the feel of the place was sometimes 'heavy handed', but we've had that here, IL-2skins.com and many other sites but thats not really a bad thing - I guess some folks just didn't like it being that way.

Ditto. I was hoping that a number of the more pressing missing aircraft were going to emerge as the Spitfire XIV did soon after the 3d exporter was finished, but all that happened is that a million incrementally different variants of the same old aircraft were produced, and then the hooray-for-everything crowd (as Feathered rightly puts it) emerged.

Not a clue. Probably a lot of post-filters in the video editing software, a lot of new scenery textures, a spangly weapon/water/etc. effects mod and a cloud mod would do it all.

I fail to see how a bit of humor is any different than people referring to AAA as the "hooray for everything" crowd. IMHO AAA started out great - I enjoy the Storch and the Ju-52 mods quite a lot. On the other hand there was an ever increasing amount of garbage mods made exactly by people who had the tools but lacked the ability. If anything lead to the downfall of AAA and the splintering of the mod community it was the endless proliferation of sub-par mods.

TheGrunch
06-08-2010, 09:16 AM
I can agree with that. Toward the end it was pretty much just bickering with UP and ever more historically ephemeral variants of FW 190D# and Bf 109K#. I don't think it was that there was a proliferation of such mods, either. More just that activity from the experienced modellers at AAA pretty much dried up and so that was all that was left.

I wonder where old Gibbage is going to head off to now? He was a big player over there and at least on of the guys that did really good modding. His extra early P-38s were/are really nice to have.

Whoever did the Shinden also did a really great job too. It's up to TD or even Oleg's standards. Although I highly suspect it uses another planes FM, like maybe one of the Jacks perhaps?

Examples of poorly done mods are the Swordfish and the U-2VS biplanes. And the FM for the F-86 Sabres, not so good. Ever try to take off in one? You have to pry it off the runway with a crowbar!!

TheGrunch
06-08-2010, 02:41 PM
Ha, yeah. There are a lot of very suspicious FMs...the Shinden is just a P-63 IIRC. The Swordfish is actually pretty good if you ignore the cockpit, hence why it's been included in 4.10. There are a few models which look really nice and are generally up to scratch in most ways, but with the exception that they are generally a bit too high-poly. I think that's one of the bigger reasons that a lot of the better stuff is not even being considered by DT.

I'm all for going back to stock 4.10 when it comes out, only reason I haven't done so for 4.09 is because I liked the Zuti servers.

The mods I really liked were the ones that let you fly AI planes, especially the ones that gave them their own cockpits. Most of the other stuff was "meh", with the exception of the Korean War jets (I had an absolute blast the first time I flew the Mig-15 online), the Swordfish, and a few other planes. I will probably stick with some mods turned on even after 4.10 comes out since it doesn't look like the official guys will ever give us any flyable heavy bombers or torpedo planes.

if you read the forum topic for Canvas knights you'll see that it's not built useing IL-2 in anyway.

First a little about what Canvas Knights is built from.
Canvas Knights sim is built off of what is known as VSF technology.
VSF technology is a robust platform simulation and graphics engine that is used
To make a wide verity of simulators for public enjoyment and big firms and
Goverments use VSF technology for the making of their training simulations.
There is a lot more to VSF technology then we will ever use in the making
Of Canvas Knights WW1 sim.

it doesn't tickle me too much as I've got ROF and OFF but I thought I'd clear that up.

It's interesting to see the contrast between industries - replace "1C" in the quote above with GM/Ford/etc, with regard to car add-ons / modifications. An entire industry would be killed if cars were licensed as software is, rather than bought.

Especially when you take in account that several of these players do have jewish backgrounds and I don't think they want to see themselves in a Bf-109 with Swastika's.

I have no idea what the AAA people are up to now, but Ultrapack has a lot of stuff that was in the old AAA mods but has a lot of stuff that improves them a lot like better sounds, and better map and plane textures, it's like a total upgrade of Il-2 whereas the AAA mods were just some new sounds (which weren't very good), some new maps and some new planes, UP has all of that and a LOT more.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> First a little about what Canvas Knights is built from.
Canvas Knights sim is built off of what is known as VSF technology.
VSF technology is a robust platform simulation and graphics engine that is used
To make a wide verity of simulators for public enjoyment and big firms and
Goverments use VSF technology for the making of their training simulations.
There is a lot more to VSF technology then we will ever use in the making
Of Canvas Knights WW1 sim.

it doesn't tickle me too much as I've got ROF and OFF but I thought I'd clear that up. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Well that is good to know.. but I still probably wont get it.. heck I have ROF and I don't fly that much.. I am convinced that my thing is WWII.. pre & post WWII really don't float my boat too much.

..talk about biased BS.....
UP IS very good... but it would never have existed without all the work done at AAA....and nearly all the modders started with AAA and got most of their knowledge from there.
With your low opinion of AAA you probably never gave it or its mods a chance...so you must be talking out of your hat....

Like I said, UP took the AAA mods and added a new level of polish and a lot of other stuff on top of it. The AAA Unified Install mods were like a rough beta, UP is like a more finished product and really adds a lot to Il-2 that the AAA UI didn't. I certainly wouldn't disparage the hard work of anyone at AAA since they made UP possible.

Well, most people use either UP or HSFX, and since UP has an option in the mod enabler for pure HSFX then there's really only need for one mod install.
