Thanks !

Rumour has it that they have electricity, computers and internet over there. Take your disks, setup your PC and you should be right.
If you are heading there from the US, the voltage is different so you may be better to get a PC there. Just dont make the mistake of drinking their beer- its awful!

Yeah, we done got ourselves some o' that there gravity,too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif.

But to be honest i doubt you'll find a net-cafe with it installed. I'd let you fly on my PC but I'm in Japan.
Have fun there anyway.

If you're of to NZ travelling for two months you'll be more worried about all the bloody orcs all over the bloody place than where to get your Il2 fix, eh, precious? Watch out for the children, they carry knives.

Be very frightened of the Aussie possums,they were our advanced landing party and have eaten most of the kiwis.
When you get there tellem at the local pub that you come from the mainland,they like that.

As long as you're not an Ozzie or a Kiwi, when you hear a Kiwi talking ask him what part of Australia he's from, he'll like that so much he'll buy you a beer, I guarantee.

Bsnakeman- listen to 'F0_Dark_P'- you're in the real place, no need for simulators. If you need to fly, book yourself a flight over the spectacular landscapes- if you haven't been there before you're in for a real treat, they are absolutely stunning. There's a very good reason they made Lord of the Rings there- the place is spectacular.
They have **** fine rugby players as well, almost as good as the Aussies (couldnt help it, i was being too nice to our cousins) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

If you end up visiting Auckland, then definately check out the Auckland War Memorial Museum (http://www.aucklandmuseum.com/)
Its well worth it. (Theres a Spitfire and Zero on static display)

Also worth a look is:
The Museum of Transport And Technology (http://www.kiwiaircraftimages.com/musmotat.html) (MOTAT) where theres some awesome static displays of Heavy WW2 Aircraft, includeing the mighty Avro Lancaster, and Sunderland Flying boat.

Then leave Auckland ASAP. As a resident i can honestly tell you that as a city, it really blows compared to the rest of the country.
If you can, head to the South Island.

Also well worth checking out if you get the chance is the New Zealand Fighter Pilots Museum (http://www.nzfpm.co.nz/welcome/welcome.htm) at Wanaka.
As well as...
The Royal New Zealand Airforce Museum (http://www.airforcemuseum.co.nz/main/AircraftDisplay/) (Both located in the South Island)

Those places should subdue any cravings you might have...just dont drool on the aircraft...too much http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Also, be weary of the local wildlife.
Although we dont have any venomous or dangerous creatures running around loose in the wild, (Not counting polititians, lawyers and used car salesmen) the local sheep have attitude and will attack on sight!!...theyve been expertly trained to do so http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Just visited the Auckland War Memorial Museum and for the first time I've seen a real well preserved Spitfire MkXVI and a Zero, it was a must and the rest of the war exhibition was very well set and interesting although you could smell death.
