Greetings. I'm Phule, an RB3D pilot who wishes to expand his repetoire. One question, though.....I see all sorts of TS server addys on server descriptions in Hyperlobby...I was under the impression that the IL2 series has built-in voice comm; am I wrong, or is it more hassle than it's worth? BTW, in the RB3D community, I'm a bomber specialist. So far in 46, I really like the A20 Havoc; it flies real nice, and it's easy to land.

Most of them fly on TeamSpeak and Hyperlobby.

Yeah, I've never heard of anyone ever using the built-in comm.

Some people have used the in-game comms - once. Then they go to to TS or other service.

Tried to get the in-game voice comm to function, and now I understand completely why TS is used instead http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif . Another option for voice comm is Ventrilo; my RB squadron uses it, and the audio quality is first-rate.

Thanks to all for responses so far....now that I have your attention, I have a further question: Is there some kind of protocol/etiquette for joining co-op missions? I just don't feel right about just barging on in, especially since I'm still relatively new to this community, and am unsure of the general tolerance level for newbie http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif es and such, and would really rather not presume or make unfounded assumptions regarding such. Any insights would be greatly appreciated. S!

Be nice!

There's hardly any.
I mean, anyone hosting a COOP publically, would want anyone to just jump in... the host will need to have as many slots filled as can be...

Just view the properties of the mission, sometimes it states 'training' or 'team' or 'private', if so, do not jump in. In case of doubt, you may want to Page the host and ask 'Anyone Welcome?'

'Tolerance level for newbie'?
Well, as long as you watch out, don't do any stupid things like crashing into mates at take off... it'll be okay...

Have Fun!

Thank you, Sir. I realize my last post sounded a bit overcautious, but I've had a couple of bad experiences with game communities; Star Trek Armada's being the worst I ever encountered. Newcomers there were treated with appalling discourtesy; the slightest 'whoops' on your part would bring about threats and derision, which I really don't react well to at the best of times.
The difference between the STA community and the virtual aviation community has so far been that of night and day.
Ok, now that I have a better idea of what's going on, I'll participate more.
