  1. I think, even though rubberbanding is a big issue, throttle control is more important in maintaining formation. Unless there's a serious change in how aircraft throttle is handled, whereby the player has control over the entire power range available to a real pilot, precise form flying is going to be very difficult. It's possible now, if you use autothrottle, but that removes the ability to fly formation at varying airspeeds...

    Microsoft Flight: Beta Registration Open

    It's not just an impression. "The game will feature it’s own marketplace, with content regulated by Microsoft. There will be no software development kit and hence no user created content." http://flyawaysimulation.com/news/4317/microsoft-flight-behind-scenes-at-microsoft-studios/ In my honest opinion, this is a blessing. Consumers and developers alike can continue investing in FSX as a platform knowing that, for some time to come, there is nothing that can replace it. With Prepar3D adding DX11 support and optimising the base platform further for use in conjunction with multicore CPUs, it will only get better.

    Microsoft Flight: Beta Registration Open

    Well then, it's official. MSFlight will be free to download, initially containing only Hawaii, with more regions to be sold at a later point through the Live Marketplace. Complete with pilot customisation and what looks like a career mode... http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2397774,00.asp It looks like Prepare3D is the only way to go in replacing FSX now.

    Russian Flying Fortress

    Bah, I'd rather see this in ArmA 3: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Polaris-Motor-Flying/1487994/L/

    I don't quite think that is what this thread was intended for. Whereas the original statement was a humble aside, your entire post was devoted to this point, and it didn't really contribute to anything. On Topic: That is quite a unique Havok livery, although most Russian aircraft now lack universality or consistence in their paint schemes. Is this a one-off livery, intended for service in a specific theatre?

    FCS for helicopters.

    The Holy M67...I like the sound of that. :p

    ArmA3 Wishlist and Ideas

    Now that we have SDVs and SCUBA diving, can we get a Lotus Esprit added as a submersible vehicle? :p In all seriousness, I'd like to see move in cargo and 6DOF functionality added to air units. It would be nice to have someone lean out the side door of the Mi-8 to guide the pilot during slingload ops.

    ArmA 2 site hacked

    I was under the impression that while the BGM-109 can accept a nuclear payload, it is technically not allowed under SALT.

    IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover

    The latest patch provided the ability to toggle it via GUI in the options...
  10. How could you possibly enjoy the appearance of the DBS when all it did was go around a slight bend and flip over?

    Japan hit by 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami

    Assuming the reactors have been SCRAMmed, why would they still need cooling? Residual decay from fission by-products?
  12. This. Even the novels had outlandish plots, contrast that with the two hours of blandness in Casino Royale and QoS. That's what made the series special, and without that escapism involved, it may as well be a Bourne film.
  13. An-225 off a carrier? Why, that's nothing compared to the Sea Abrams: http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal2/1901-2000/Gal1991_Abrams_Crenshaw/00.shtm

    Faulty AV-8B controls

    I believe it has 90 seconds of water injection while in VTOL configuration.

    That looks very nice. Any plans for Shamu/European 1 or SAC liveries?
