been playing lots of online DF servers for the last couple of months and the plane sets that poeple use are fairly standard, Mainly 109, Ki, Spitfires and LA7. You get the odd yak, P51 and so on but what i want to know is where are all the other planes that peolple love?

Looking around this forum it is obvious lots of people fly IL2's Jugs, P40's P39's etc etc but i never see any online at all http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

So...All you unccommon planes pilots (can think of a better term http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif) where are you? and where do you fly?

If the I-153 or I-16 is not available on a server I don't join it!

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Well...

Because of the situation with patches etc... the Pigs have been mostly flying private Coops, but indeed, we fly the P40 a lot.

The problem with DF servers now is that the preponderance of them are late war scenarios, and it makes no sense to go after a K4 with a P40, Hurricane, Gladiator, etc...

Some good early year servers (that do not include the G2) would be most welcome.

Hopefully the P36 (Hawk 75) will be flyable very soon, and that will help early war fanciers as well.

Perhaps I can put something together and host it next week...

I prefer ground attack and bomber interception to fighter-on-fighter combat, so for the most part I play offline. Campaigns, single missions, QMB.

I think in servers where full plane sets are available folk pretty rapidly 'evolve' through those available to the cream of the crop. I accidentally bought CFSing3 a while ago and during the brief period it actually funtioned on my machine I played a couple of times on line and all anyone was flying were Tempest Vs and late mark Spits. Furballs rapidly degenerated into lawn mowing tournaments as players quickly lost height untill everyone was circling at zero feet hosing down the one nut who'd spawned in a P-51. I eventually took to spawning in the B-25 and would sit in the rear gunner's position shooting Spits through their glass jaws. Boy did that game suck.

Have a nice day.
