I'm a noob. I'm old, i don't quite understand cyberspace,forums or the web. I bought 1946, played it, had problems and found this forum. How come everyone is so helpful and so NICE! It is really refreshing and I can't thank you enough. May you live long and enjoy your life.

Actually you will find the majority of us on here are quite old............. some more than others, one person I used to fly with on the old UBICOM site had emigrated to Auz and was in his 80's http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I used to remind him of English Beer... Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings and all that he missed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

We all help each other because it increases the amount of players online and that is a benefit to us all....... on top of that you will find you have 1946 because the online community has driven Oleg and the team to continue the development, without our support I doubt it would of ever happened http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Welcome by the way to the forums and ohhhh..........................

oldtimer1946,

You will find that most people here are glad to help, especially when you ask nicely. People tend to be rude only when the person asking is rude.

If you need help taking off and landing check out my Straight From the Farm campaign. It was specifically designed for noobs. Use the link below to take you to my stuff at Mission4Today.

Come to think of it there was a guy on here a few years ago who actually flew combat missions in the PTO, crewman on a B-29 if I recall correctly.

Welcome.

I'm not old, not yet anyhow...

I did a P47 skin many moons ago and got an email from the original pilots family thanking me and saying they had fixed him up with the game and a PC, so he could fly his old Aircraft again that he flew during the war, something he thought would never of been possible.................

The Buzz I got from that was the best this game has ever given me.....bar none, it was a privilege

It's that common interest in flying, WW2 Aircraft, Flight Sims, Fun and R E S P E C T for one another that make this forum good to be a part ofhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

Hey oldtimer.. check out these threads.. Who we are........ (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/7501072845?r=3611072845#3611072845)

Bear in mind that the original Who we are thread that I linked to is @ 2 or 3 years old.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I think that's one reason why I like this place so much.. We have our share of kids mind you.. and even some of us "mature" guys occasionally loose our cool and talk out the sides of our necks.. I know I have more than once... but for the most part we are a pretty good bunch.
