Re: Squad combat stagnation

This may be a stupid question but surely couldn't squads, if they are so big, practice fighting against each other? Like divide into teams which they stick with and simply fight together? That way pilots gain practice and skill fighting whilst also building the squad's skill level? I recently manage...

Re: Strategy vs. Tactics

I can't say I agree with you, government's can't just print money whenever they go to war, money is derived from the tax-payer who, funnily enough, also gets to decide the leaders (in a democracy), now unless that particular country is getting invaded and in the case of the US, Russia, China, UK, Fr...

Re: Strategy vs. Tactics

Wow, that sound's like an awesome course. Unfortunately, because of the nature of YS, actual militarial strategy is hard to emulate, aircraft, fuel, weapons don't cost anything, logistics aren't required, and you can spawn at your start location without an entire management train. I was thinking mor...

Strategy vs. Tactics

First off, I would like to say hello to everyone again, I’ve been off these past couple of weeks because adjusting to uni in a different state. I’m beginning by proposing a question, what is the difference between strategy and tactics? Now most people, would answer nothing, but there is a difference...

Re: YSFlight Mission Utility

I tried to make it as low end as possible, without fancy graphics and in as small a window as possible (500x500) so that people with slower computers and smaller screens could still use it.

(oh and, at least I know it works in one other place :) )

Re: YSFlight Mission Utility

Thanks Eric, Please note that this is my first program in Java, and I'm more than willing to accept advice on improving it, I posted it as an OpenSource project precisely because there are many more people out there with far superior programming skills. As regards to a GitHub account, it is unfortun...

[PROGRAM] YSFlight Mission Utility

As mentioned in my Introduction post, several months ago I was working on a save file generator for YSFlight as part of my High School software class. Over the past week I've been dusting it off, improving some of the code and giving is a face-lift. I'm thoroughly pleased to say that as of last nigh...

Re: F-35B Delayed after fourth prototype had to be destroyed

I'm just glad that Australia is so hard to invade, because the news reports paint an extremely depressing picture.

Re: F-35B Delayed after fourth prototype had to be destroyed

Actually, almost a year ago an Australian investigative journalism program called Four Corners did a comprehensive study on it, including a simulation of the F-35 in combat with Sukhoi SU-27 (The SU-27s won) Here is the link for anyone interested. http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/stories/2013/02/18/36...

Blender Video Tutorials

I'm not completely sure if this has already been said so apologies in advance for repetition. Recently Blender Guru (a well known blender tutorial site run by another Aussie :D) released a two part aircraft modelling tutorial. The first part is the production of the mesh and, in my opinion it is ver...

Introduction

Hey all, I've been a decade long passionate user of YSFlight and until recently I though I was one of the few people who still actually used it, with the simplistic graphics turning the majority of my friends whom I tried to convert away. Much to my own embarrassment, I never even considered searchi...
