Recent air combat sim recommendations?

OHhhhh I am VERY excited to try it then! I can’t believe I somehow completely missed it.

Also WTF with this pricing? $24.99?!?!?!

Christ I could get FCG on disk with all of its awesome documentation for the same price on eBay.

That’s… ridiculous. Flying Corps brings nothing to the table but pure nostalgia. WoFF2 (PvE) and IL2FC (PvP) absolutely wipe the floor clear of any earlier WW1 airwar contenders. There’s literally no need to play RB, RB2, KOTS, and the like unless it’s for the feels.

And since they just released Navy Strike for like $6, I personally thought FC would be around the same.

Flying corps came with a reprint of a 1917 flyihg manual. So good. I still have that.

Oh shit I don’t have that, I only ever bought Gold, which did NOT have that manual. Gotta track that down. Is it called Practical Flying?

Why indeed, good sir, that it is!

Thanks, I’ll keep an eye out for a copy!


Practical Flying

Oh wow thank you!

I looked at the pdf of that and it was a bit challenging. If you’re willing to pay $3 a good Kindle version:

Perfect, thank you!

Have had it in my sim reading folder for ages, got it off some forum or other. Was happy to see its still available online. Nice that there is a Kindle version too.

I feel remiss for not pointing this one out:

SF2 has like a player base of maybe 20 people these days, but it appears every single one of them is a 5-star modder

Man that looks lovely. I need to play SF2 more.

Hey have you played Strike Fighters Modern Combat at all? It also looks like a good time.

Not in a while… but the various iterations of TK’s sim-lites have never left my phones and tablets.

I won’t play those (or their derivates) on the PC.

Fair enough.

So there’s a nifty little toy called Total Tank Simulator on sale at Steam today. It really, really reminds me of a couple of “ahead of their time” games named Campaign, from waaaaay back in the Amiga days.

Playing around with it a little, and I think it might provide some amusement/diversion for our sim-heads here.
