Re: Vote for Game to Play on Mondays or Tuesdays

Yes, I originally made this supposition before seeing the other poll results to date. Still, I think it is a point worth putting g in bold relief.

Re: Preferred Plane and Loadout?

Hi Trichome,

F/A-18 and 14B are my preferred aircraft. Whatever loadout is fine. I can change it when I hop in the jet.

Lowering my backpack weight

Hi, So, as many of you know, one of my real passions in life is backpacking. This is something I actually get to do rather than just "simulate." I get the chance to practice real skills and challenge myself physically every time I step on the trail. I also find myself mentally and spiritua...

Re: Vote for Monday or Tuesday Night Game Time

Pretty strong interest in Tuesday night as a gaming night. I'll give this poll a few more days to make sure everyone has had a chance to vote and then we'll chat about it what to play. Unfortunately, there is no clear winner in our preferred game poll. So we'll have to figure that out. Here's a anot...

Re: Vote for Game to Play on Mondays or Tuesdays

Another thought: We leave Monday nights as DCS training nights. We use Tuesday nights as another game night. Wednesday night is DCS mission night. Of course, this schedule would depend on how much interest there is in playing something as a group on Tuesday nights. In the interest of full disclosure...

Re: Vote for Game to Play on Mondays or Tuesdays

I understand your meaning, but the premise of the question was originally to change DCS on Monday nights to a different game and hence its absence from the list of options. If anyone else would like to keep DCS on Monday night and NOT change the game, then they are certainly welcome to leave a messa...

Re: New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

I am also a tad burned out on DCS. Complacency and burnout go hand in hand. As I've been a bit burned out, I'm less eager to log on and follow SOP for a variety of procedures and events during flight. While I've tried to be mentally present during ops, I've been less keen on taking the leadership ro...

Re: Vote for Game to Play on Mondays or Tuesdays

There should be a DCS option for those who still want to play it on Mondays/Tuesdays. DCS was not included because the premise of this discussion was to get away from DCS on Mondays. So, the assumption here, I think, is folks are a little burned out and looking for something different one of our tw...

Vote for Game to Play on Mondays or Tuesdays

Please see the poll below and VOTE for your preferred game. We will play this game as a group on that either Monday or Tuesday night depending on the outcome of the game night poll. This poll will be up for seven days. I tried to include all the games mentioned in the previous thread. You may only m...

Please see the poll below and VOTE. The poll will last seven days. Start times may be as early as 8 PM EDT but often we don't start until 9PM EDT as more of us are logged on by then.

Re: New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

You can buy Falcon 4.0 on Steam. But I think there is too much of a learning curve to it. Given we're getting away from DCS Monday's because of the labor involved in learning the jets, I think we should lean towards something a little lighter. IL2 or a tactical shooter would probably fit the bill. E...

Re: New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

So far we have: IL2 BoX GR Breakpoint GR Wildlands Zero Hour F1 Racing Elite Dangerous ARMA 3 RPG game Elite Dangerous Since we're a bit all over the map, should be put it to a poll? Personally, I don't want to play a traditional RPG game, I tend to enjoy those in single player more. Although a stri...

New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

Hi Guys, I can play on Monday nights and Tuesday nights. Honestly, Tuesdays work a bit better for me right now, but I'm cool with playing on Monday nights too. I'm thinking of flying Elite Dangerous. Would there be any interest? Other options include ARMA 3 Ghost Recon Breakpoint Open to other optio...

Wednesday night 10/13/21 DCS Session

Hi all,

I plan on logging on to fly per usual. Sorry I couldn't make Monday's session. Deb and I got back late from a backpack in NH and I fell asleep on the couch. Everyone else coming? Hope to see you all tonight for flying.

Shutting Off PC at the Power Strip

Hi, I asked this question in Hammer's PC thread, but no one responded. Perhaps no one saw it. So, I thought I would ask here in a separate thread: I have my PC and monitor plugged into an anti-surge strip. For years, I've owned a monitor where the power button is tucked away underneath so that it's ...

Re: House of the Dragon

Well, I will certainly tune in and watch. But I'm skeptical. Most reboots/spin-offs are not up to the original. Some rare exceptions to that of course.

Re: High Sierra

My wife and I backpacked North Lake to South Lake loop in the High Sierras, and did some day hiking in Yosemite. Simply stunning. The fishing looked great at every lake we camped at. Hope you caught more than a few!
