Re: is it realy worth buying it?

Is it worth it?
Is anything worth it?

After all, it's just pixels on a computer screen, no different from any other pixels on a computer screen.

RAF pilots also quickly learned (as did Luftwaffe pilots later) which angles were best to get close to the bombers while staying outside the killzones of the bomber guns. So gunners would not get a good shot at anything because the fighters were darting in and out of their field of view faster than ...

Pretty much the same everywhere. MSFS is available pretty widely, and some stores that specialise in games may have 1946 and/or one or two others, but that's it. As it is the entire genre is pretty much dead as far as retailers are concerned. MSFS is sold as part of package deals with Microsoft in w...

in fact it can be impossible to get rid of Norton products without a full format of the harddisk and reinstallation of Windows (depending on the version and product(s) of Norton you install).

Taking some 40mm Bofors in your engine will make it fail. I've encountered that more than once bombing Fighter Command bases.

I shot that one down yesterday over a convoy, or another one just like it.
First kill, saw him spiralling down minus one elevator and half a wing, no chute.

The Spit was narrow, the 109 was worse... I'm too young to have lived through the real thing (don't envy those who do, though I do admire them), but I've been reading (and flying FS models) for years. My granddad thought the Germans in May '40 on the Grebbe. Lost over 90% of his unit in 3 days takin...

Time to avenge our fallen Comrades and teach those Limeys a lesson in German airpower.

They won't use this airfield again in a hurry...

Later followed up with 3 flights of Do-17s to thoroughly crater the place.

And indeed the 109 was feared by pilots for its narrow main gear which caused many landing accidents. The gear on the Spit isn't too wide either, but in comparison it's palatial which makes for much more stable ground handling. 109s also had a gunnery advantage, with more powerful weapons that could...

Merry Christmas. No chimney here, just an airduct.

Hendon used to run a shuttle bus from the Tube station to the entrance. Sign of the times I guess, but not everyone is fit enough for the walk (my father appreciated it the last time we were there, which was several years ago). IWM is a must as well, and there's the National army museum as well on H...

and yes, chute failure happened. Maybe not 1 in 8, but it did happen (and still happens, my mother was in a clinic learning to walk in 2002 where she met a guy whose chute had failed at something like 5000ft (not a pilot, he jumped for fun). He miraculously survived but broke just about every bone i...

Where are you seeing this, exactly? If it's an the end of BoB-world then it's a known issue but that should be all unless you are using Cntrl-I a lot. The runways should not look like that. I wonder about your card mipmap settings. Got it only on the ground, and not consistently (during the trainin...

Seeing something very similar. Default settings after installation.

Does look like it's taking different MIPs for different drawing distances to me.
