Default Introductions please

thought I would say:
Hi I have been playing IL2 sturmovik since 2007, I was turned on to this fine WWII sim
When I broke my back. Was off work for 18 months. Happened at work.
Been playing ever since and love the new UP mods, and HSFX extreme mods.

Not liking the new Cliffs of Dover, not working good for my machine to many CTDs and Blue screens, this is the only game that does this on my machine.

Hi I have been playing il2 since 2002 offline and around 2005 I started flying online and joined JG52 around 2007 after discovering the delights of cockpit combat.

Since joining JG52 I have participated in USL and various online wars, while my dedication to the squad has been lacking due to RL I have made it my goal to bring it back to full capacity in time to join in the online wars.

So far I have been enjoying CloD immensely even with all it's bugs, however I am currently the only active JG52 member flying in CloD due to it's high spec requirements but I'm still hoping that the patches will enable more of my squad mates to join me in sorties around the channel.

I've been playing Sims now for quite a while. Below is a picture of a few of the tiles, missing from the picture are the Janes USNF-ATF and Longbow sims, MSFS, CFS1 and 3, and early sims like Secret Weapons of the LW, Cuck Yeagers Air Combat, Tornado and games like Elite

I've been flying the Il2 series since Pacific fighters.

Since COD's release I've pretty much shelved everything else except for an occasional sortie in ROF or A10 Warthog.

Unfortunately I'm a bit like Sir Morris in my flying. Enthusiastic doesn't alway equate to skillfull!

Hi, I've been playing combat flight sims for 20 years or so. I fell in love with WW2 sims with European Air War. I got my self a force feedback stick at the same time, I was in heaven. I tried IL-2 Sturmovik when it first came out but my pc wouldn't run it (sound familiar?). IL-2 Pacific Fighters was when I really got hooked. With time my apatite for full real has grown. I'm now as happy as a pig in poop with COD. I now fly with Track IR and Saitek X52 j-stick and rudder pedals. I find I can no longer play IL-2 1946 as its like an arcade game compared to COD.
The future is bright thanks to IL-2 and the online flight sim community. ~S~

Hi, I'm 22 and I've been playing flightsims since I was 5 years old. Ever since my dad let me try Microprose's "Dogfight 80 years of aerial combat" from 1993 and Flight simulator 4 and eventually 95 I was hooked. Also played X-wing, Tie-Fighter and X-wing vs. Tie-Fighter, Strike Eagle III, Back to Baghdad, Falcon, 4 FS 98, 2000, 2004 and X. I also played Novalogic's Comanche 1, 2 and 3 + F-22 Lightning II. Later on I also played DID's Eurofighter 2000 and F-22 Air Dominance Fighter + F-22 Total Air War. Played CFS1, 2 and 3 and more recently I've also been playing IL-2 Sturmovik (2001) and kept playing it for 10 years. I bought all the official expansion packs (minus the pure mission-based ones). I also flew Lock:On flaming cliffs 1 & 2 + DCS blackshark, but even though the super-advanced high speed aircraft I missed the intense dogfights of WW1 and WW2. I currently play IL-2 Cliffs of Dover and Rise Of Flight. I get my quick thrills from RoF and my more serious realism fights from CloD.

In reality I work as an Airforce F-16 Crew-Chief and enjoy my time spent around real aircraft during the day time and sim aircraft at night There's a private plane club at the base where I can take my PPL once I gather the money and time for it, which I hope to do within the next year if my girlfriend supports the idea of throwing ca 14.000$ on it .

Nice to meet you all!

OK I'll bite.
Started with il2 in about 2001, and been with JG52 since about '04.Flown hundreds, maybe even thousands of online war missions, in VEF,VOW,CAD,AFW and many others over the years.
In all the time I flew il2, I never once flew cockpit off, through personal choice.Thats probably why I am such a poor shot...
Now fly RoF and CoD, but nowhere near the frequency I once did with il2.
Retired at 38, and now have time to enjoy life,and take the pish out of those that deserve it.

hi my name is Alasdair Fisher im a scottish bloke that lives in N.W England for my sins. im thirty bloody seven ! and still carrying on like a kid with games

I started modding games back with CFS2 and have continued since mostly with racing simulators. im probally more of a modder than a gamer these days but the 2 fuel each other. i reckon iam a reasonably good artist out with modding too.

Iam a realistic guy, no religion and not too much poolitics here, but plenty of science where possible. ohh im hoplessly addicted to smokin' marjuana too. (a good thing)

Some of you may have me on your ignore lists which i would say isnt too fair, but each to there own. Regards that, iam a realistic guy as ive already stated and i will not cease to stand up or voice my opinions.

i love to play music & listen to music, used to play bass in a few bands. presently playing alot of slide guitar(blues) but listening wise as i am typing this iam listening to this.

Out with gaming activities wise for most of my life that simply involved snowboarding skateboarding, bmxing & being with women. Sports wise it has to come in the form of skillfull trickery, cant be doin with that boring nonsense. i still go abroad to the alps every year for snowboarding but thats abouts its for these days. Financial pressure increasing.

Gaming wise its quite eclectic, just like everything else. i do have a Ps3, did have a 360 till recently. but mainly the long term fascination comes from the simulation side. Eagle Dynamics are at the top of the ladder where flight is concerned and from that you can take that i do fly the awesome a-10 flying tank and the Ka-50. Unfortunatly ROF just isnt appealing to me much. Other genre i like are strategy games. DOW2, Starcraft2, All total war series etc etc.

@skoshi, thats an admirable collection. i stupidly flung CFS3 in the bin a few weeks ago or i would have been happy to give you it.

Well this was the first online WW2 'sim' (okay, it's really not a sim!) I played:


Then I found IL2 and never looked back.

Currently, even though I have CloD, I just don't play it as I wait for Patches.

Il2:1946 has 5 different installs on my HD (HSFX/UP/etc,etc) and I will be playing that and Wings of Prey for years yet!

I hope CloD does make it through though as it looks great, but needs patching. However, I can wait as I have loads to play with for now!

Cheers, MP

In and out of flight sims for years but never seriously. Been mainly Sub Siming as persona Hans Gruber since 2005 but fell out of love when UBI released SH5. Some talented moders have managed to make a reasonable game out of it but it still lacks the SH3 'appeal' alas.

Bought il2 to bide my patience till COD came out then plunged into a big PC upgrade, Track IR and Saitek 52 Pro. I'm lucky to have bought a Gigabyte GTX 480 Super OC with 1.5 GB VRam before the prices went up....it's due to this card that i'm having a great time with COD. Sure it needs a lot of optimisation work and an overhaul of the interface, sound and AI but it does have the makings of a classic.

I just wish they had gone with any other publisher than UBI and waited before releasing it. I feel 1C have now lost the opportunity to have made a lot of money on COD. But I'm sure we'll benefit from their continued support of their Russian client base.

I'll mainly be lurking here as I don't get on too well with authority.

Cheers, McFeckit

Aha! I like this forum...thanks mods.

Been playing Il-2 (almost) from the beginning...I got my first copy about eight months after release, and added to it over the years with all the great expansion packs that came out.
Eventually I bought 1946 as it was easier having everything on one disc.

Il-2 is the only sim I've really gotten heavily involved in, athough I like LOMAC and the DCS series as well.
Wishing Clod and the team all the best for the future.

PS-Skoshi, great pic!
