    Cool Re: Spotting in multiplayer

    Hi Squidly.......this 'going online' business is a strange thing. I never had any intention of going multiplayer when I first bought Cliffs.......what, get in amongst all those strange people you hear about, just waiting to pounce on you as soon as you go on line? No fear! So I played single player for a whole year. Eventually, I got a little bored of shooting down AI aircraft that just sat there while you fired at them. By this time, I had seen some fascinating you tube videos, where pilots seemed to be working together on line in some way that I didn't totally understand. The videos they posted seemed so realistic that gradually my curiosity was piqued. This seemed to be exactly what some boyhood dream of mine was looking for.

    So eventually, I spawned in at Lympne on the ATAG Axis and Allies server....just to see what would happen. I spawned out again as soon as it said 'Please read the Mission briefing for Instructions' because I thought: 'God! They already know I'm here and they realise I haven't got a clue!' Big Brother or what? But eventually, I spawned in long enough to warm up a Spitfire and take off, flying east towards Dover. As I crossed Dover I happened to look behind (I didn't yet have Track Ir so looking behind was a difficult and slow process) and to my horror saw an evil looking yellow spinner flashing in the light, right behind my tail. Before I could do anything the unknown Blue pilot fired and I was hit badly. Losing control, I had no choice but to bail out. Fortunately, all my months of practice paid off and I landed in Dover harbour, shocked but alive and with my heart thumping excitedly. That was bloody awesome!

    Immediately, the possibilities opened up. This is a 'full real' scenario! This IS The Battle of Britain as I imagined it! If he could do that to me then I could do that to him too....with a bit of practice. (A lot of practice!!!) I can learn to fly and fight just as those brave lads did back in Summer, 1940. And I've never looked back.

    But one thing was a TOTAL surprise...and that was the cameraderie, support, advice and real friendship that I have found amongst our online Community, accessed, of course, through Team Speak. They are all a great bunch of people who, though they 'fly computers,' are as 'normal' as you and I. We may be separated by oceans and thousands of miles but we all share a love and fascination with history and The Battle of Britain in particular.

    This Community has members spread across the world. So, we are a world force for good.......and I'm sure we provide companionship and the sharing of a common interest with people who maybe can't get out as much as they would like, or who live in isolated parts of the world. That's a huge plus...and a hidden 'strength of 'this flight sim 'Cliffs of Dover!'

    Huh! And some people think this is 'just a game!' How wrong can you be! Good luck....and I hope to see you in our virtual skies soon. (For some formation flying perhaps?). Salute!
    I so enjoyed reading this post an could so relate.


    I totally concur! TS is the fastest way to learn.
    My huge problem is the lack of time to stick online. But still go there when there's a minute or two in my month.

    This Sim has the Best community ever!

    Straighten up and fly right.

    ... ... OK, this could be one of the solutions!
    ... in any case, after having lowered the resolution of CLOD very little (from maximum to high, 3440 x 1440 native, 80 Hz), then removing the check mark for an anti-epilepsy filter, using G-SYNC, avoiding drinking beer and whiskey as if there were no tomorrow, I had the impression that my poor visual skills have improved! ...

    Glad that you found a solution

    For the Macchi, it is basically a G50 with a Bf109 engine... If you can fly both, you should be alright in it.
    I also can hardly wait until it is released...

    hopefully the Macchi will take a little less punishment than the G50!

    LOL, what the G50 is missing is speed and power. Hopefully this will be taken care of by the DB601 and you guys will no longer be able to brag about shooting fish in a barrel...

    Who does?
    Right now and with the coming patch blue definitely has the superior planes.
    This seems to be historically accurate until about at least ca. 1943 as far as I see.
    Later on, some of the best designs like the G. 55 were not build in relevant numbers.

    With the US entering the war, the allies had a growing numerical advantage, which made the difference. First of equipment and then especially of well-trained pilots.
    Even when the Me 262 was theoretically available, pilots had to take of in 110s to attack the bomber formations plus escort.
    This will not be reflected in any sim (just as the reliability of aircraft does not play a role, the ergonmics of aircraft can only partly be modelled, and the quality of petrol and repair-facilities is not play a role at all).

    I'm glad this is just a game ...

    (but an absolutely brilliant one )

    And like SM mentioned, wing up with a veteran and they will show you how to spot better.
