I just hope the developer of 1979 isn't being paid by the CIA.

Maybe someone should make "1967" where you take the part of either an Israeli sailor machine gunning life boats launched from the U.S.S. Liberty in the hope of preventing survivors, or an attack pilot strafing and napalming the ship to keep the crew from rewiring radio masts so they can send a report that they're being attacked, or a torpedo boat captain trying to sink it. If succesful the US comes into the war you started on your side.

Or you can play the part of Robert Macnamara and decide whether to recall the US navy strike flights that were going to protect the ship, or you could allow the nuclear strike against Cairo.

The game would show that in history - the bad guys screw their friends

Then we could play the ace elevatore modernisation program!

History offers so many opportunities for educational gaming.

Bush planned 9/11.

No he didn't. The zionists of PNAC did the plan, Cheney did the legwork, Israel supplied the manpower. Bush knew - he was 'shitting bricks' during his press conference - you only need to watch his expression during his upside-down my pet goat episode to realise something was up...

They used Mossad personnel through Mossad fixer Jack Abramoff. The front company Ace Elevator (the owner fled to Israel just prior to 9/11) planted the explosives during an elevator upgrade of the WTC buildings that a Freedom of Information Act request has just shown was never real (ie none of the legal paperwork that is required to get permission to do the upgrades was ever done).

The US military KNOWS Israel did it - and they're pissed. I'm waiting for them to hit back at Israel like they did after Israel attacked the USS Liberty and tried to drag the US into a war against Egypt.

Yep - the truth is out there - just not being served up on a platter by CNN and Fox.

The whole purpose of facebook is to put faces to ip addresses, and ip addresses to identities, to make it possible to trace an individual to the content they post online.

Unfortunately the 'horse has bolted' and the ability to suppress the truth by taking out those who make it available online has already been invalidated - too many people know thanks to the likes of Wikileaks and Bradley Manning.

Instead it will now be used as a 'chilling effect' to scare people into not spreading the truth because it might end up with them being hassled when travelling or any other activity where 'government' agencies are involved.

I wonder if this will be an inferior "jumping on the World-Of-Tanks" bandwagon game or something decent.

20. Re: IL-2 Cliffs of Dover Add-on in September? Jul 18, 2011, 09:21 Bard
 
hmm.. Cliffs of Dover doesn't even WORK PROPERLY yet.

It's a bit.. risky.. to release an add-on for a broken product. By the time the product works and those informed consumers purchase it the add-on will most likely have lost the sales impact it would have had.

Guys - you know better. Use email or IM next time - blatant policy violation....
What policy violation. Removing crap from things you own is legal unless you live in some archaic backwater.

The US is one of those backwaters.

As always, I find the best alternative is to just play the game yourself.
And if you want to do it legally, then that's a lot of wasted money unless there are demos.

INDEED. For this reason alone do I advocate piracy.

The practice of some developers and publishers of not releasing fully functioning demos of their products to allows us to test drive before we buy sucks.

If there's anything I've learnt in this industry it's that you cannot secure anything.

There shouldn't be any external connectivity to anything critical - period.

Yes - we're seeing a push to remove freedom from the internet so we can't see the crimes governments and corporations who for some reason think it's THEY who have control and not US.

First they came in the name of children using child porn, now they're using hacking to justify controlling the internet. What they need to do is to unplug anything critical from the internet. You used 'leased lines' - ie what any competent network engineer would suggest.

All of this is just an excuse.

"Security officials" see renewed need to wag the dog to drown out the news that the operators of the scanning machines are getting cancer, and that they have refused to allow the operators to use radiation measuring devices to determine when they've received too many rads.

That's what you get when the department of homeland security has family members both controlling the department and also the company selling the scanners.

Stuxnet - the US/Israeli virus.

With the Pentagon declaring cyber attack as acts of war does this mean that the US should now be charged with Warcrimes for attacking Iran's nuclear facilities with this virus?

No - of course not. It's not a crime when WE do it.

I have heard IL-2 is quite easy to get into.

I suppose it is when you play without all the simmy parts of it - but on high realism it can be fairly hard.

I would really love to see 'Il2 meets World of Tanks'

There is a huge flight sim community out there - problem is there's not a lot of ACCESSIBLE, FUNCTIONING simulations that don't have a very steep learning curve.

A flight sim that kept the physics and realism (ie no 'external views' or 'see through' cockpits) while making it more simplified would be great fun yet still keeping the core of what makes air combat air combat.
