You know this place has really grown on me over the past few years and being the optomist that I am I sometimes like to just sit back and take stock of the good things in my favorite hobby. Very often the subject of opening up the sim, or complaints about this that or the other.... come up, and while it is true that there are still a lot of things about this sim that piss me off at times many of the deficiencies in this sim are made more tolerable by some of the great folks here in our community who over the years have worked hard and continue to work hard to make this sim even better. This post is to just remind us all of those folks and what they do, and to just say

THANKS!!!

For all that you have done and still do for this community. I dont know about you folks... and I am sure that none of our lives would come to an end if all this were to disappear.... but for me, this is something I do that I thoroughly enjoy. It is one of the few things that I can do in my life that is just for me... no one else.... just me.. After a long day of busting my chops to do what I have to as a husband and father... and all the other things that I am responsible for, this is the one place where I can come, to my simming, and say..." Oh yeah.. baby.. now it is my time.. for me .. this is Miller Time. All this stuff makes that time that much more meaningful and enjoyable to me.

So again guys.... and gals.. from the folks who keep AW.C & M4T going... and all the other great sites that have become so essential to what we all do here, to the hard working folks who crank out some of the great freeware or shareware stuff that we use, to thier wives and families.. and mine too.. who put up with me/us taking time from them to do what I/we enjoy so much.... to each and every one of you, who help to make this all a ton of fun.. not only here and on the other forums, but nightly on Hyperlobby..... and all the guys in the 99th. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hear Hear!

Bloody well said BC, I'm glad to see some people here share my enthusiasm for this excellent sim and of course all of those rather neat 3rd party ancilliaries that really make it shine. Thanks guys, whether you be skinners, server mods, mission designers or even the computer minded fellows who help those techno-plebs like me sort out their tech issues. Good team spirit.

Too many glass is half empty types have been naysaying their way through the community of late, so lets raise a glass to those who actually bring something constructive to this community!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The amount of work everyone involved in this game puts in is incredible. From Oleg and the devs to the 3rd party guys, from the Tech Forum people to the Skinners. In fact, I now regard this forum as a general PC forum. You can find an answer to any question you can think of.

Absolutly, thanks all you that support and improve the sim.......Lest we also not forget all those who here on this and other forums that propose, investigate, and then campaign to fix items or improve it, or even just simply educate as well.

Well done all http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

100% agree!

The thing that has helped keep IL2 alive has been a community that has put in an truly staggering amount of time and effort for free.

All to often we take all of this work for granted, and its nice for them to get a public thanks for all their work!

Personally, for me a big thanks for;

IL2 Mat Manager
IL2 Stab
Jesters skins
Flyby Shooter for his skins (including my Ki-84 online skin)
Greg Boyingtons skins
Harpia_Marfra55 skins
Nimitz for True Pacific
Starshoy for all of his updates
Ian Boys for all of his work
Uberdemon for the Quick Mission Generator

TgD Thunderbolt56
Crash Moses for his B-25 bombing guide
Dart, Flatspin, and all the guys at Pacific Conflict
