As far as I'm concerned on this matter, not that it amounts to a hill of beans mind you, is that you can keep every difficulty setting on, but Externals will remain open. I'll even go with no pit and locked externals, but one or the other will be available on servers that I fly on.

Knowing the true evil that lurks in the hearts of some online sim pilots, I won't give them the satisfaction of completely locking down the game, while exploiters and cheaters run amok.

It's not about skill, it's about honor. Most hosts do not use proper MAX LAG or Speed Check settings and at least when I host I'm assured of that and my keen eye from almost 4 years of online flying in this series spots'em in a heartbeat. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Not all cheat, but truth be known, there are entire scrub squadrons based on Speed Gear and leaving their server settings loose to use it. Be sure.

Once one knows the visual difference between lag and maneuvering warp, anyone can see it as plain as day. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

And it's a game as well. No reason not to have honor, though, even in a game. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Imagine what would happen if some hacker (with real skill) suddenly felt justified in breaking this game open because of the actions of a few mindless dll loaders.

Carefull kids. You don't want to awaken any giants.

And it's the attitude of 'its the internet' or 'its jsut a game' that leads to the rudeness and general ******ness that we so often see online these days.

Too true...let's hope those hackers stay over where the kids hang out and leave our "old man's" game alone. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Funny, the profile of most virtual sim pilots closely mirrors that of most U.S. serial killers....go figure. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I'll fly any settings.... yep, even "Easy" if that's what the host has set (and I'm in a silly mood) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

I prefer the VFC*HOST coop settings. IIRC, "'Pit on" on, "No externals" off, "No minimap path" & "No speedbar" off, all others on.

I actually flew my first VFC coop a week or so ago. It was a Spitfire escort mission. I got an AI plane and our illustrious moderator, Ivan. He put up quite a tussle in that 109 of his. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I ran out of fuel and had to ditch and the AI straffed my field-landed plane unmercifully, lol.

I prefer locked pit as well, and having externals is fun and a good way to help ensure no BS, along with good, tight server settings.

Like you tully, I fly all types of servers. There is fun to be had at all difficulty settings and some of the best scripted servers I've flown on have open externals.

That's right. anyone is free to fly any settings they want. That's what a democracy is all about as opposed to fascism or communism. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif And there is nothing to feel embarassed to feel about.

Good point, sambar. It's all about the fun and I think the switchable difficulty settings is what lets players of all skills and interests enjoy this game at their preferred level.

An open externals game is usually very fast-paced and exciting for me, as I enjoy being able to see what my foe is up to and him being able to see me and still coming away with the victory. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

No doubt, I would fly total full in a LAN tournament, as that is how I fly my offline campaign, but online I won't be locked down knowing what I know.

Nice thread! I expected the "full real" fascists to emerge and spew some nasty comments about people flying with "wonder woman" settings. Luckily they haven't!

I jump in for a round or two with cockpit on every few months or so. But, the views are just too, ummm what's the word? Sucky. Why on earth would one voluntarily remove half the screen? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif
