Thank God for small favors I suppose...

a good half of the "yellow smear" was taken away from the 109G6 side and rear canopy.

There's still enough to make viewing more difficult than it *should* be...but at least the majority of the view is unobscured.

My point is, at least there is *something* good about AEP. Not very much, but clean glass in 109s is at least *something*.

Look at it this way, Stiglr. You can be comforted by the fact that the way you look at it, you spent around 30 to 40 US Dollars (or the equivalent in other currency, wherever you are) to have your Me109 lose a little bit of yellow glass.

Feel better? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

About Time - I have been asking my Ground crew for a Year to Stick some Windex on that.

Although HQ told me that the real reason is the BF109 Factory got a mixed up Order of Stained Glass bound for repairs on a Berlin Church. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Whew... I was worried that my purchase was a waste. I'll have to reload tonight and check out this new feature. It should add hours of life AEP. I mean, without it all you have is fun. But what is fun without small amounts of yellow paint I ask you? Trust me, they'll be asking that in the next century instead of 'If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it...'

But Stiglr - this was an OUTRAGE!!! You said so. You should be overjoyed. Overjoyed, Stiglr.

At the very least you get the satisfaction of playing with an addon for a game you don't like, and you get to moan endlessly about it. Loudly. And in public.

What more could you want?

Oleg says he`ll fix the rest of the paint the moment you do something about that avatar. "This guy doesn`t know the first thing about graphics, so who is he to complain?", he says. "But perhaps there will be a patch..." he adds.

If you wait until the last minute to do something, it will only take a minute to do it!

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/smileys-gun2.gif Shoot's Ivan. Hey Stiglir i figured out why the Camo netting object stops guns from firing when placed over them. It's a box with transparent texture at the ends so a gun cant shoot its way out of a box. And i also figured out the P-38 compass problem im working on code now to fix that and if i get it just right i'll release my own damn patch for it maybe Ivan can pay for it to give to Oleg. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif

Stiglr, you're pathetic. First you complain about FB. Then, you get all angry that AEP isn't making things better. You knew that the game would basically stay the same even with the new expansion pack. So why did you waste 30 of your bucks to buy AEP when a game like Aces High is better suited for you? Go find an FPS and stop complaining.

Aces High??? Sir, you wound me.

That game has as much of a sickening "ueber" mentality as this community does. It's a piece of arcade crap, just like this has turned into.

If you must know, I've continued to support the Maddox series because it is better than MSCFS (and for that reason alone deserves support) and as a foreign-created product, it has persevered despite its staying somewhat outside the US mill; at least for a time.

Still, that hasn't stopped it from becoming a complete sell-out. I'm bitterly disappointed that Oleg caved in to the wishes of the "never-flew", "just-so-long-as-it's-'murrican" ignorant masses and filled the sim with a bunch of ill-researched, badly modeled planes (yeah, they *look* good but little else) so that IL-2 begins to mirror EAW before it, rather than stand firm and make a statement for quality, and a limited, focused, well-done effort (which IL-2 started as). IL-2 was very popular before the cave-in, and the abovementioned "masses" supported it because (then) it was a better product. Sure they whined about their Stangs and such... but they played anyway. They should not have been capitulated to; now the sim bears NO relation to anything historical; it's merely a popularity contest. Surely Oleg must feel a bitter pang of irony that the Russian planes he worked so hard to spotlight are all but absent on DF servers anymore.

Hmm, I don't know why then, of most of the DF and Coop servers I've been on, have at least 75% of the allies flying soviet warplanes, mostly the Yak-3 and La-7.

And from what I can tell, most servers have banned the "never-flew" planes, like the YP-80, Bi-1, He-162 and Go-229. The 109Z is still there on some servers, but it's not too common.

"Bears no relation to anything historical"? Where did you get that idea? If you're judging it all upon what DF servers are like, you are REALLY missing out. VEF or VOW are the places to go if you want historical battles - and what's more, they wipe your record clean after you die or get captured.

I don't know why you continue to bicker about history in parts of the game that have nothing to do with history. The only historical parts of the game are offline single player and online Cooperation. You can make a "dogfight" historically based, but given that gametype's architecture, there is little point.

I see *plenty* of point.

1)The online wars are pretty good, true, but they truly demand you fly with a squad (which I don't these days), pretty much, otherwise you have almost NO chance of survival. Also, they're stuck with the misguided notion that "all switches" = most realistic, which is patently false. The sim needs some limited form of icons, to make up for problems with the graphics engine and our monitors. But then, they've ALWAYS operated with the notion that making it hardER than real life is better. In more than one way, a very myopic view.

2) The vast majority of the co-ops lack any insight into history; many are just as bad as the silliest DF arena.

3) Since DF servers *can* have a point to them, it's annoying that so few DO. The ones that are well done stand head and shoulders above the many others with the idiot square maps, all planes for all sides, Wonder Woman view (now making a comeback not unlike a recurring fungus).

I guess not. Stiglr is expecting *way* too much from the typical dogfight server.
