    Battle of Stalingrad is very pretty. But these fuckers refuse to stay in the air.


    Most of the time it's like..

    How is the cock pit view?

    I know it's not click-able, which is a bit of a shame, but how does it look?

    The screenshots I've seen have such pretty landscapes that I'm tempted to take a look at it.

    It confuses me that the speed is in mph and the altitude is in feet incidentally.

    Personally I want speed in KM/H and Altitude in Feet.

    Cockpits look great. Some shots from below.





    A truly beautiful game. The sound design is spot on.

    Yea, that does look good. Great, in fact. I assume the various gauges and what not work?

    About the mph for IAS, it was just me being thrown off because I've been playing A-10c like a mad man lately so I'm used to seeing it in knots. Which actually caused me no end of issues when I showed a friend the SU-25 module. I didn't realise the Ruskies used kmh for air speed so I completely botched a couple of take offs when I tried to rotate. Cue hilarious crashes.

    They do indeed include lights :) There are some good tutorial videos located here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGX9...kaDy5gTIiuwGmg which should give you a look at some of those dials in use.

    Ironically the joystick I have (Saitek Cyborg Evo) was purchased years ago when I got Forgotten Battles, so I sorta feel like iv come circle :) Though I am somewhat lacking buttons on it. Most of them at the moment are there for camera settings. Maybe ill be a bit of a hipster and look at the X55 over the coming months.

    If you want a cheap ass HOTAS stick the T.Flight Hotas from Thrustmaster is a pretty good stick. It's obviously not in the same league as the X55 but so far it serves me well in DCS. Though my recent purchase of some gear for head tracking helps immensely. I can't believe how great it is to not have to use buttons to look around. I'm still trying to decide what to use the free hat for.

    Edit: having watched that BF-109 video... how on earth did people fly these things, let alone navigate?! It's been ages since I played IL2 so I think I'd forgotten just how not very advanced these things were. That wheel for flaps or what it was blew my mind.

    Morrowind never used to look this good.

    This doesn't quite look like Skywind but you've clearly modded it to within an inch of its life, how stable is it?

    If that's MGSO (which I'm fairly certain it is) then it should be very stable. Demanding, sure, but it never crashed for me, and the installer is automatic now.

    MGSO it is, and indeed it is also very stable - at least so far as Morrowind already "is" :) I've only come across one missing texture, but that was in a bedroom hidden away in Ald'Ruhn so not terribly breaking.

    With the pack I'm enjoying just walking around as I toddle between quests. I suppose Skyrim with texture packs and ENB does look very pretty, but Morrowind feels more like it has been designed around being explored rather than fast-travelled.

    Looks sooo pretty
    Is it too demanding on the hardware?
