    What are you most looking forward to in Patch 5 Tobruk?

    I thought I would start this just to see what folks like. I'm number 3 with the 109 Fs

    1 The new planeset & name your favorites
    2 The Desert arena
    3 The whole package makes you want to jump up and down with joy
    4 You don't really care for the Desert arena but you like the new planeset

    Re: What are you most looking forward to in Patch 5 Tobruk?

    Honestly, the planeset is cool, the map is cool, but what I really want is just this:

    Bug fixes, AI improvements, effects updates, FM updates, graphical improvements, the lot. In my opinion, any game should strive to produce quality of existing content rather than new content. Of course new content is awesome too (and it sells, that's why people are still interested) but the real meat of the update in my opinion will be the technical improvements to the sim, not the new planes.

    But damn if I'm not excited for the Spitfire V.

    Agree with all of it. Although you probably don't see me flying much in multiplayer it's because for some strange reason I'm not a Battle of Britain fan in the sim world, in the real world for sure. North Africa is my favorite. This original 1c IL-2 Sturmovik series I have stuck with since the demo in August 2001, fun times and what ever comes along I'll stand by it.

    There are tons of things I`m going to do with TFS 5.0. But there`s one thing I would not like to do, clean up a battlefield after an enemy airstrike.

    We are looking forward to running a Camel derby amongst our brave fliegers in 9./JG52.
    Large sums will be waged and vast amounts of alcohol will be consumed. The winning jockey
    will be given a week end pass to the nearest boudoir. So hopefully a good bloodline will be included
    In the modelling of Camels in the patch.

    Re: What are you most looking forward to in Patch 5 Tobruk?

    I'm looking forward to navigating (and probably getting lost) on the new map

    Definitely looking forward to the little P40 and Gladiator

    Also, getting to grips with a cannon firing Spit will be a blast....... though seeing I'm so rubbish in our present E4 109's I'm not sure I'll be hitting anything other than sand dunes.

    Oh and.....sharing a cold beer, in a bar in Alexandria with Sylvia Sims! (Don't worry! I've already locked John Mills in the loo!) Salute!

    Just with this sim generally one of the things I've always really liked was the option to put your number and squad on your aeroplane. Just a simple thing but it really is handy.

    Surprising enough..we see new people joining and introducing themselves in the forum all the time. If we want them to stick around, we need to do a better job populating the servers we have. ATAG/TWC/ DD to name a few. It's up to us as a community to do this. Exciting things are coming.. let's get back in and fight the battles and create new ones!

    I am just looking forward to flying the new allied planes, especially the Wellington bomber with my yoke

    As for the Tobruk map, it looks great, but I am not looking forward to trying to navigate.

    I have enough trouble finding stuff in France.

    I am guessing the desert will be even more difficult to navigate

    Yeah land targets deeper in land will be tougher..but at least u can remember keep the sea on your right or on your left depending on which way you're heading.. the coastline will be the English and French point for awhile I'm sure while we learn the map.

    Sitting here thinking about the Martlet....Sitting on the Sandy runway..inline waiting to take off..with the sounds of engines surrounding me.. dust stiring up..the Sun beating down relentlessly. It's going to be great!

    Not if you keep the coast in sight... piece of cake.

    The desert inland is quite featureless, but along the coast there are lots of variables in terms of terrain as well as the way the coast is formed.

    One thing I'm looking forward to are the inevitable new nicknames and slang that we'll come up with to describe bits and places of the new map. Like we have "crab's legs", "Sandy spit", "Hell's Corner", "the Trifields", etc, so surely there will be some fun new names to come up with.

    Im looking forward to the 110's rear gun not being dumbed down and hopefully an armour piercing tracer round for the 110 C6's 30mm cannon to make attacking ground targets easier with such limited ammo attacking ground targets on the sun burnt desert is going to be epic!

    Sandy Splat leaps to mind.

    And i will be able to use it to describe pretty much any place on the dry side of the coast
