Tally Ho!!!!

After reading this post earlier last week I decided to get the Team Fusion Mod for Cliffs Of Dover. For anyone who doesn’t know Cliffs Of Dover when released had a very poor reception but now with a fantastic community mod it is right up there with the best World War 2 Combat Flight Simulations around if not the best. Stunning visuals and a hardcore approach to the overall simulation it has once again stimulated my interest in this era of flying and fighting. I have had a few dogfights online with me getting my butt spanked for an hour or so and then I started getting some kills which I have to say was very satisfying and the first time I have shouted “YES!!!” ¬†while playing a game in years.

I’m going to tackle the longer missions when time allows. I have a week off soon and in between decorating the house I can see myself fighting in the air over The English Channel hopefully shouting “YES!!” more often.

Having a great time this holiday period. Hearts Of Iron 3 campaign is going well and i can now just about land the DCS Huey see this video for proof. I have bought and downloaded Flaming Cliffs 3. I have avoided this module because for me it’s the lightweight version in terms of complexity but no one can deny the fun that can be had dogfighting in F-15C’s with guns only against a friend online.This has basically killed many hours of my time but it has been an absolute hoot. Check out my perfect guns solution on my good friend Chump (appropriately named might i add ūüôā

As promised a quick video of my first attempt at a takeoff and landing in the DCS Huey. Some swearing so turn the speakers down in case the kids can hear.

All i have been doing¬†lately¬†with regards to anything simulation is DCS stuff. No¬†apologies¬†, it really is the best stuff out there at the moment for just the shear joy of flying from the desktop. I have to admit and as you can see from previous posts I found the P-51 Mustang to be a bit underwhelming but after getting into the manual and¬†reading¬†about this awesome aircraft i have top say this is slowly becoming a favourite. The flight model is superb. Of course i have never flown any aircraft but this one really makes me feel like i am flying and creates that all to¬†elusive¬†illusion¬†of doing just that. If you¬†haven’t¬†already got it and are just thinking about it, stop that now and buy it!

I was doing some low level flying in the hills this evening.
