HeavyDelta asked for this over a year ago with IL2 and maybe it's time to do it for FB. Mention those little nuances in the game that don't even have to be there but which make it so great. Like the pilot slumping when AAA whacks him in his chute.

I particularly love the lighting effects---the sun, gunfire, explosions reflecting off the console.

Amazing stuff.

I love the little moments when you break through cloud iinto sunlight and look towards it to see a blaze of colour. Look higher and see long streamers of silver, whispy cloud.

Its like being there sometimes. In my haste to play online I completly overloked the single player game. Its imersive, damned hard but moments of sheer calm as you sail through cloudy sunlight above the largest battle field in the history of man never ceases to catch and hold my attention.

In fact its fair to say I will rarely play the game during the day just because I dont like to be disturbed from my rapture/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I love how when playing online with forum regulars, they act respectful and actually seem like nice people...well except for a few, who seem to have slipped by the Beta-testers and made it into the code...

I like it when I haven't played in awile, and then come back and go like Clint Eastwood in the "Unforgiven" on a server.

The 3 month aces are like who the hell is this guy as I am going off to the max. Meanwhile vets I don't even know are pm'ing me "Whats's up? Long time no see." etc.

Once I spotted a terget 2000m below me.I started a maneuver to gain best attack angle.Seconds later the bogey flew into clouds.He didn`t see me,so he was flyin` in a straight line.I did some calculations to foresee his position.I flew into clouds doing 690km/h.He was below cloud level.When I came out of the clouds he was exactly there when I taought he`d be.He went down in flames and I think never knew what hit`em.

That`s like....in the movies!

I love the AI...they may be crack shots at times but they also make mistakes...like stalling into the ground trying to evade you...pannicking and bailing after a few bursts....the wingman who shadows you and by doing so gives you a good lesson in what a wingman is supposed to do. I like the clouds...Ohhh...the clouds... I like the evening sky..the setting sun over the Crimea... I like the thunder storms..the heart pounding thrill of dogfighting in the dark in a storm.....seeing the enemy appear before you in a flash of lightning...and having to make that split second decision.....right or left....life or death.... This whole sim is one big nuance....especially if you compare it to anything else before it. The only thing that comes close is IL2.

Had to add one more.

I am working the Stalingrad campaign with my Yak1B.
It is October 1942 and the fascists are at the gates of the city.

After a successful mission, I came in to land last night but came from the West over the German lines rather than from the East over the city.

I dropped my flaps to prepare for final approach when I noticed German tanks firing on the airfield and Russian artillery returning fire.

Needless to say, I gunned the throttle, raised flaps and got out of there.

Came around from the proper side and landed safely.

Cool details, once again!!!!
