    IL2 develops Tank Crew

    A new tank simulator seems set to break records. On the 77th anniversary of the invasion of Russia, 777 Studios annnounce that the highly popular air combat simulator game, IL2:Sturmovik with 3 great products; Stalingrad, Moscow and Kuban, is moving into tanks. Already having two tanks available to drive in the game, IL2:Tank Crew will be a new expansion that utilises a huge map (on tank game standards) and 10 driveable tanks (5 axis and 5 Allied) plus a flak vehicle each. Here is an initial look at a T-34... The map area is based around the largest tank battle of WWII during the Battle of Kursk and pits the defending Red Army against the Last attempt by the Wermacht to break the Russian lines. Here is the map: Thnkfully, this game should interface directly with the Flight simulators and so the ability to call in air support should be there. The tanks can be fully manned by humans, AI or a tank commander may also be able to control a squad of AI tanks giving the full range of single player, Squads and right down to fully manned tanks.... Also, these new tanks wil be operable in all the previous verions of IL2 thus greatly expanding the player contributin towards online dynamic war servers.... The tanks and flak vehicles will be: Allied: 1. T-34-76 model 1943 2. KV-1s 3. M4A2 4. SU-122 5. SU-152 6. GAZ-MM + 72K Axis: 7. PzKpfw III Ausf.M 8. PzKpfw IV Ausf.G 9. PzKpfw V Ausf.D "Panther" 10. PzKpfw VI Ausf.H1 "Tiger" 11. Sd. Kfz. 184 "Ferdinand" 12. Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38 Th terrain wil also be modelled in much greater detail and will include crushable trees and destructible buildings thus allowing tanks to behave accurately where ever you wish to position them. Great effort is also being made to model them accurately so that the rounds have the correct trajectory, impac and damage effect against the tanks having accurate modelling of armour systems and weapons, operated by the correct crew members. Thus the driver will not be able to load the main gun etc. All in all a very exciting project that is due for release in a little over a year. However, like the rest of the IL2 series an early access programme will allow those contributing to gain access to the various tanks as they are completed. The first of which will be coming as soon as July... The Russian KV-1 and the famous German “Tiger”!!!! Read even more about this exciting new game HERE - IL2:TANK CREW
  6. Update: I fixed it.

  7. At the moment my STO launcher is not allowing itself to patch and launch into the game. Therefore, for the time being, I will be unable to log in and check on ToW2. However, that being said, I will still be on team-speak while I find a way to correct the error.

    EvE Online: Into the Abyss has been released.

    The new EvE Online Expansion has been released. It brings: - Three new "Precursor" ships and a strange new weapon system that only these ships can equip. - A new Solo PvE Challenge that pits the player against these new enemies in an unstable "Abbysal Deadspace" pocket of space-time. The player will die in 20 minutes if they don't escape. - The End of Immortal Outposts. Now all Low-Sec and Null-Sec Space Structures will become "citadels" and if not defended will be destroyed. - More Story Driven Content - And so much more!

    Stellaris 2.1 (Niven) Update and Distant Stars DLC is out. It's absolutely incredible. 2.1 has DOUBLED the number of anomalies and reformed the discovery system significantly. More events to help and hinder your empire ensure that variety is the spice of life. Visually, there are now Binary and Trinary systems. Gameplay wise there are a myriad of fixes and balances including new technologies and new structures and science ships now have the ability (once researched) to directly travel to any revealed system. This allows you to continue your discovery even after being surrounded by enemies. The DLC brings the "L-Cluster" and the "L-Gates". It's a constellation outside the galaxy that houses great riches, true horrors, and a terrible secret...
  13. No, I didn't die. Although these past few weeks have been ABSOLUTELY MENTAL. A funny thing happened chaps. An Oldie, but Goodie game has risen from the dead. Age of Empires Online (AoEO) has been resurrected with the following link: https://www.reddit.com/r/projectceleste/wiki/how-to-install-and-play-aoeo-celeste-fan-project Rejoice, for the community server hath ordained that you won't be charged for any of the Content like the "new" factions and quests. The "premium currency" is now used to acquire the Pumpkin Head Vanity objects. Also, there's no one waiting in the wings for you to buy that premium currency either. The 2012 graphics hold up remarkably well in 1920 x 1680 and resemble that of 'Northgard'. It's a solid Age of Empires game with a complete host of Cooperative missions that can support 2 players (any faction). You can play through Faction A's story if you do it with a player from Faction B. It has a few 'Farmville'-esque elements in your "Capital City" and your units are equiped with gear much like "Company of Heroes Online". Fortunately, the current development team actually give a S--- and have balanced the 4 player skirmish mode (PvP) and the end game Horde mode (Survive against the attackers) better than the original. TLDR: It's good for Cooperative Fun and is miles better than AoE III.

    IL2:BoBP Map Announced

    IL2:Battle of Bodenplatte is the next offering in the IL2:Battle of Stalingrad series and covers over 6 months of the later stages of WWII. Based around the Western front the associated map includes huge swathes of Holland, Denmark, France and Germany. Just under 130,000 Square Kilometres of faithfully reproduced terrain using 3D mapping and satellite imagery adjusted for the time period. As you can see, a huge number of the active airfields will be implemented which should make for exciting off line career modes as well as extensive online multiplayer dynamic war scenarios. All very exciting when combined with the new US and UK aircraft set.

  21. Sins of a Solar Empire is an absolute masterpiece. http://store.steampowered.com/app/204880/Sins_of_a_Solar_Empire_Rebellion/ It's a Real Time Strategy Game in which you fight over planets (Multiple Solar Systems available in one game). - Three Races: TEC (Human), Vasari (Alien), Advent (Space Psychic Ladies). - Each Race has "Rebels" and "Loyalists" ensuring there are basically Six Factions. - Diplomacy with "Pacts" that give you sexy bonuses. - Capital Ships have magic powers, like Heroes from Warcraft III. - Ludicrious Fleet Sizes. - Pirate NPC Faction that will raid for sport. - Multiplayer - Crazy AI (if you set it) - Fantastic Music DLC adds: - Miltia (Constantly Spawning NPC Fleets. Neutral Planet creates Neutral Militia. Allied Planets create Allied Militia). - Galaxy Events and Disasters - Planet Specialisations that change resource modifiers. - Maps Add me on steam if you fancy a game or two.
  22. Or at least just a few chaps to run some of the Queues with now again.

    Necro Bump! Stellaris 2.0.2 is out and it's even better than before! It's got clearly establish battle lines now and you fight over every star system. Takes days or even weeks to properly "finish" a game but it supports a canny amount of people in a game. If anyone wants to play don't hesitate to add me on steam.
