Try clicking on the Wild Blue link in my signature, try viewing it from there?

 

Also broken. WoWP update's even messing with me outside of the game :angry::D
This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

If I were to try a streaming test on my Twitch.tv channel at 4:00pm PST (or around 27 minutes from now), who would come check things out and leave feedback on their experience?

i was hoping to see your pre-recorded twitch stream, but i guess that's not a thing?       just a big blank rectangle

 

so it's only available live, right?

Sorry trikke :( My Twitch channel is going to be a work in progress, much like my YouTube channel was when I first got started. My main goal of this test was to see if I could actually stream (and for just over an hour, things worked out very well). As I explore the settings and options, more features will be activated, like previous streams that others might have missed, due to the timing of things.

 

 

By now, I am guessing some of you have already experienced the reworked Winter War map, now called Arctic Region. For those of you who haven't yet, here's my tour and take on things....

FYI you can also upload videos to Twitch the same way you can with Youtube.  You can also set streams to be saved as Past Broadcasts that can be viewed  up to 2 weeks later, and you can also create highlights from your steams that can be saves and viewed indefinitely.  And you can even 'Live Stream' your Past Broadcasts and Highlights, I believe this is called the "replay" feature now, so, even when you are offline, people who visit your channel will see something playing.

Hmm, interesting, I haven't seen Winter War yet (because I don't fly low-tier aircraft much at all.) However it looks like a beautiful map, but also incredibly similar to the redone version of Lighthouse (Albion). Hmm... to be honest looks like they're just retexturings of each other with different props and settings.

Still, combat at night I think should be a more common thing when they start including more maps that aren't redone versions of old ones, it will present an interesting challenge as you have to have a better eye to keep track of an aircraft, and it might actually warrant a new class of camouflage for night camo, perhaps it's unnecessary challenge and possibly P2W (since night camo will make it a lot harder to keep track of your aircraft for those without a trained eye) but I think it'll make the game a bit more dynamic, perhaps a gamemode that's all about night-fighting would suffice?


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

Good stuff Mars, thanks! As of right now, I managed to upload an "offline picture" to fill in, until more content can be created/saved there.

In the pre-2.0 days, Winter War was one of my favorite maps. Here is a video from the Operation Dynamo event, before I put my face and voice into the action (I especially loved the music as you entered the environment, a pleasing yet haunting tune I will never forget)....

Back when I played I didn't experience Winter War too much unfortunately but it was a really fun map, for sure. My personal favorites were Bay, (old) Lighthouse, Asian Border, Hidden Airbase (which was I think for one random match just to see where the game was after leaving it), and then Pacific Ocean. The music was nice, for sure, I particularly remember Lighthouse and Asian Border myself, almost a shame we no longer get it during the match, but perhaps it's for the best.

 

Will admit though, flying the Slepnir going pew-pew against other Slepnirs and crappy planes at night was fun.

Welcome to the point where you leave your big guns behind and embrace the small guns...

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

congrats, but it's not for me

 

i refuse to fly a pure jet, on religious reasons 

 

pure jets are the devil's handiwork...  except for the rb-17, because even Jesus would fly the rb-17 low and fast

Okay, not really the plane, but a paint scheme labeled "Canada" for the tier V Grumman F4F Wildcat. I suppose it looks okay, if there was ever a RedBull Racing event added to the game?

 

I'm guessing they went for the Molson Canadian look, versus Golden, Labatt 50 or Old Vienna...or even Labatt Goo, I mean Blue.

Man, I can barely remember when my old, favorite poison came in that bottle....

 

 

For some odd, intuitive reason, I felt like playing a bomber.
 
Having just completed the short Hawker line, I had a look around at the current selection of aircraft in my hangar, checking out my progress on abandoned and stalled lines across all the nations. Then, I gauged all of that against the mood I was in and for some reason, the German tier V Junkers Ju 88A felt like the right thing to play.
 
Turns out, it was the right choice....
