    i bought PF today and i think it is great. I had to install it standalone because my PC doesn't have much memorey.

    Trying to land on a carrier is really hard only 1/20 attempts have i got it right! but it is great fun

    Welcome! Keep flying and get addicted. Then spend all your money on a better rig, and go get IL-2 FB Gold pack. Then do a merged install, get the latest patches, and fly online!

    Then you will really lose sleep!

    Remember one thing : KEEP AN OPEN MIND.

    You will read here in these boards about how PF is incomplete, or questioning how well it did because of number of units sold, how <so or so> is ready to call it quits to flight sims after their experience with PF etc. etc.

    Let that roll over you for now and make up your own mind. You are the one who knows your tastes and the capabilities of your PC. If you're having fun then go for it, and welcome !

    Get the GOLD pack anyway and let the sim do the talking........ and start saving... you'll need it... This sim almost drives you to make it better....and ironically the more you upgrade the more you see... it isnt like some products where you reach a peak and thats it...... I have seen an improvement with each and every upgrade from my original rig of an AMD XP1600,1G DDR 2100,JetWay MOBO,9000Pro to the current ASUS A7N8X,XP 3200,1GDDR3200,6800GT256 and each of the stops from there to here. Welcome aboard!! Hit the Essentials link in my sig.......

    Those peeps who play CFS3 don't know what PF or Il2FB is really like. When i first flew a Piper Tomahawk i realised how well the Il2 series relates to real flying. I think that most other people havn't had that experience. So they don't know what Il2 is really like.
