    Alrighty then, thanks for everything...but you know we've heard you sing that farewell song many times before over the past decade...lol. Face it Talon, you enjoy mission building above everything else in cyberworld and there's no better MB-friendly combat sim platform on the planet than CFS2, besides CFS1 of course. CFS2 gives you total flexibility, a true global scope, plus all the bells and whistles found in all the other platforms. See you soon...:encouragement:

    Wolfgang, Many thanks for all of your efforts on this, including using the Beirut GSL scenery! Since I have most, if not all the parts for it, installing it should be pretty quick! Did you consider doing the Iraqi conflict of '41?

    Anything with dark smoke or dark clouds will cause your pc to slow down. If someone could make the flak effect with the flak splash lets say more of a transparent gray with hang time it would help.

    The CBI is number 1 place I enjoy doing missions.I have always wanted to expand it but couldn't find the info I wanted until recently.Well it has been expaned from 71 missions to 120 with all being hand edited so you have a mix of planes in your flight.No other campaign has been as much fun to do. Now that it is finished I will not be doing anything else for awhile for CFS2.I think maybe" I will start again when someone new builds a Campaign ".That should give a very long break if not permanent.:mixed-smiley-010:

    Patton vs Monty at the command of the Italian campaign...a no-brainer rout. Patton had no respect for static fortifications or lines. He was a pure 'hit and pursue', 'shoot and move', 'seek and destroy' tactician. With regards to the Gothic line, he might well have taken the same approach as the Allies in the Pacific in dealing with Fortress Rabaul with a bypassing maneuver that isolated the strongpoint, cut it off from reinforcement and resupply and left it to wither and die. The Gothic line might have quickly become the Gothic "pocket", a precursor to the latter Battle of the Falaise Pocket, squeezed into oblivion AFTER a two-pronged flanking "Hail Mary" run around it which took the Allies through the Alps all the way to Germany, politics permitting of course. The Wehrmacht had a...

    Fibber, Not a problem. After the landing, not advancing inland really set the stage for disaster at Anzio. That being said, Anzio wasn't quite as bad as Salerno, that landing came withing a good sneeze of failure. Hats off to the US Navy and her big guns for averting disaster there. :very_drunk: If the area surrounding Anzio had hills like Salerno did, woe betide the troops who would have been trapped in the Anzio pocket.

    Fibber, I have to take exception here. Saying that Anzio was an unmitigated disaster has to be qualified. The landings themselves were uncontested, and there were no German units of strength in the area that could be mobilized for at least twenty-four to thirty-six hours. The gates to at least make a strong push on Rome were wide open. John "McClellan" Lucas, commander of VI Corps, chose to have his Richmond / Antietam moment at this crucial juncture, and doing nothing is what allowed German units to surround the Anzio beachhead. This is one of the precise moments where I think Patton could have measurably shortened the Italian campaign. He would very likely have pushed to turn the Gothic Line and scare the crap out of the Wehrmacht.

    Highpockets, From a tactical and agressiveness perspective, I see a lot in common between Patton and Stonewall Jackson. Kurt, Sam Elliot isn't who is known for mincing words. I love his straightforwardness. I still love his portrayal of Buford from Gettysburg.

    Jinx, It depends on the theatre and the nationality of the aircraft. Flying a German fighter from Biggin Hill just seems wrong to me.

    Hey guys, I posted this question on a test for extra credit, and wanted to hear your responses on it. "Given Patton's military competency and the rivalry between he and the British commander Montgomery, how do you think the Battle for Italy would have been different if Patton hadn't slapped a soldier and been removed from the theatre?" Just spitballing some scenarios... Salerno Anzio

    GR;
    How are things down there in Beaufort land? Been awhile since I have been there to see "Jerry" at Discovery Diving.
    I have installed your Forts and just have to comment that they are FANTASTIC! Now, not to sound like a dolt, which is why this isn't a Public message, but where do you put the "US PILOT" that is part of the Forts D/L? I have put it in the "models" section and met with negative results. I keep getting "Pilot not found" Do you want it in the "aircraft section" just like TL's crewmen?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    No GR. I threw only in HS.

    My choice for Discus came from Symphiosidon Discus, a tropical fish, and one of my "pets" that my kids and wife like a lot. Unfortunately I donīt have enough space for a german shepperd, my favorite dog.

    I think itīs important for you to know that until last week, before asking and getting from Talon the link to Caleb Flerkīs dp tutorial, a dp file for me was like reading a chinesse document.

    But fortunately there is always something new to learn every day.

    Ghostrider I tried your operation Hailstone mission ( Truk strike 1E ) and my computer just handled it as far as the frame rate goes. I am using a e6400 dual core with a evga 8800gt video card. I think that was the most intense mission I have flown with cfs2 so far. A fantastic looking mission. olaf

Biography:
Things are not always as they seem - the humans on Planet earth had always assumed that they were the most intelligent creatures because they had accomplished so much - the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, while all the dolphins ever did was muck around in the water having a good time. The dolphins, on the other hand, always assumed that they were the most intelligent creatures on earth - for precisely the same reasons. - Douglas Adams - "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
