There I was. In my P-38 for the 10th or 12th time that lazy weekend afternoon. No wife around, all my chores are done and I am all set to enjoy my favorite sim. I had built this scenerio and flown it a few times over the last couple of days but every time it plays out differently. Four P-38J vs two Ace 190A8 and Two G6Late. However hard it was to survive, making it to the landing was very rewarding. B&Z was working great. The guns on the 38 are amazing. 25degrees off the nose of a 109 I had him smoking. Then a 190 was cut to pieces by the cannon. But then it happened. This time things would be different indeed. The last 109 became Super AI Extroirdinare! It's as if a german ace was in control. He leads me to about 5300 meters burning up one of my engines in the process. At this time he begins to b&z ME! HEY!!! I am on the offensive here! You, you !!! I am amazed and astounded. My emotions range from rage to amazement. I am amused and intrigued. Only the fact that my wingman was with me averted disaster. He made a few unbeleivable passes climbing up to safety everytime. Just when I thought I had the AI all beat up I realize I cant underestimate Oleg. In the end the 109 ran away and was later shot down by the other two 38s. I was in no position to deal with him since now my other engine was begining to whine. I decided to make for home. On the way back, the now forgotten last 190 found me. He jumped me, separated me from the group and allmost managed the kill before my wingies came to the rescue (again). Now allmost home the engines both died from fule starvation. I managed to land on the beach and stop just at the waters edge. Luck was on my side. Letting go of the joystick I realized I was exhausted. When my wife got home she kept asking why was I in such a good mood. I simply smile and say "I played for a while" Two and a half years after the introduction of IL2 Sturmovik this is still my favorite way to spend my alone time. Thanx Oleg.

This sim has many great moments like that. Thats to be sure.

I just made a mission escorting B-17's over the Ardennes with P-51B's. Time period is somewhere in early 1944. In any case....the cloud of B-17's appearing on the horizon was spectacular...the visual was astounding. What was more astounding was the ensuing battle when 12 109's fitted with extra cannons came into the formation. Tracer fire everywhere, I flamed a 109 who dropped behind a bomber...the plane lost control, slammed into a B-17 taking the wing off and both spiraled to the ground. Stuff like that is just awe inspiring, bone chilling, and very much real in my mind.

FB gives us the terror, horror, and excitement of this era of conflict. I can't wait to see what they have planned for us in the next generation of sims. Long live the sim!

Yep!
EXACTLY my experiences which I`ve thanked Oleg for again and again! The first time I found myself cahsing a 109 in a vertical turn fight and being B&Z in my I16 was amazing! The AI seems to have several different routines which it switches on depending on situation and experience. Like I said before the AI really is a Human-like challenge now. Every battle can be a surprise!http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
