Please accept this as my formal apology, I am sorry I lost my cool. I did not mean to offend you or be so stupid - anyways, I just wanted to say thanks for an excellent game and sorry I was a real a__hole.

BTW This isn't sarcastic, I'm being honest.

On a side note, just want to pursue a career in game design and would love to be able to play with the code for PF, a game I thoroughly enjoy. Thank you and once again, sorry.

NetWings may be a good place to get started practicing for 3rd Party BoB modding. RZ if you are interested in practicing some ground objects to start with, sign up here and ask around.

Last year, Oleg said "return to Easter Front in 7 years." That should give 6 years to complete that Polikarpov R-Z and cockpit for us. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif You may not have to wait that long, as it fits better with the BoB 1939 Battle of Poland addon pac (I think Rola said some Soviet planes may make it into BoB-Poland). Its a fine looking plane, and should be a Blast to fly and fight with.

No problem. I am not insulted in any way. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

No problem either. Move to Moscow and apply to the Maddox Games as a programmer - they need one, as far as I know.
You would fulfill both of your wishes in that way. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Lol, I think I've got a couple years before I am certified (a college degree) to be an official computer programmer, let alone game design. I'm planning on a double major, History and Computer Science Game Design so I'd have all my bases covered in terms of WWII game design, hehe. As for moving to Moscow? Looks like I should take some Russian in college, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I suggest you minor in mathematics or physics. History you study much more in depth yourself.

...but then you get good contact with History people in the History community. You can always study math yourself if you are interested enough. If you do lots of programming, you will hehehe.

Now I remember something. I got a math degree but ended up climbing radio towers for some time -- its more my non-style. If I started over I'd love to research the role of the native Pacific population in the Pacific WAR -- on both sides. RZ, what buggs you about the History. Something interest you to the core? I now wish I was out in the Pacific and interviewing surviving people who lived through the old war, or their parents or village did. I was always fascinated by the Pacific war and the vast distances, but never really knew it until the PF was releaced. That is why I like that Oleg took on the PF.

Well Lexx, what it really is about History that I picked it as a major is; the fact I feel like my country seems to be losing its sense of respect for those who died fighting to protect the freedoms we enjoy. If I were to become a historian of sorts, I feel I'd be able to preserve and remember those who have fallen - not just the United States, but those of other countries. It takes a lot of guts and is very honorable (in my mind) to fight to the death, and I respect the Japanese even if during WWII they didn't fight on the so called "right side".

Now, I don't mean to turn this into a political debate, but I feel like some of the liberal people around me seem to have no respect for those that gave them the right to say "f*** Bush" and not be shot. So you could say I'm kind of inspired to educate people on the past so they can maybe understand how they got that right.

Just for the record, I have nothing against the liberal party and although I'm a conservative, I will gladly discuss things with a liberal in a gentlemanly manner.

yep i agree with u, theres two types of american belief or whatever u want to call it if u boil it down.

the key orignal points laid down by the founding ppl back in the day, and the other is those that wish to take away things from u for your protection etc http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

saw the best thing on tv, african archtecture. in the very old village or town where ppl made homes out of mud and rock and simple materials, primative to most ppl's minds, they had a small court like buliding... well used more to solve disbutes and things. amazingly good design http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

it had pillars around the edge supporting the roof, the sides where open for a cooling breeze. the roof was really really thick, again so it was cool http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

the roof is really low so u haveto be seated on the benchs to get under the roof, this is to stop ppl from fighting as they cant move much http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

i saw that, and thought of jerry springer, and how much that buliding would ruin his show http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

freedom of speech, imo can be best summed up with this quote

"i may not like what you say, but i will die defending your right to say it"
