Hey guys :) As you probably know, Wombat's been busy with 'other stuff' lately... Or so he claims! Why won't he fly with us any more?? Is he busy flying elsewhere?

Well the internet revealed the truth to me while wasting time browsing for a cup of funny researching on very important matters.

I will let the picture speak for it's self:

It surprises me that someone who has to eject more often than not would jump out of planes for recreation as well!* :rofl: :rofl:

Great find, Eagle!

The average Naval Aviator, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy, and caring.
These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

Eagle, that gave me another thought. Perhaps we need a Batman logo as a tail flash. Something for the next beta...

Thanks boys :P :P . I'm still around.
Few health issues to fix. But I'm working on it. Not all health issues are of a physical nature unfortunately.
Also, not a big one for change and the new forum layout was one step up I didn't need

Red,

You'll just have to accept Falcon for what it is. At least BMS doesn't access the hard drive all the time, which would cause serious frame drops over the FLOT or Seoul regardless of what kind of system you had. A lot of the inconsistency is due to the "bubble" system that Falcon uses, and the slowdowns happen when lots of stuff "rezzes in" at the same time (which is still better than having to model everything not in your general area). No new system can overcome legacy coding; we just accept it and move on.

@Wombat,

Glad to hear the health issues are only mental!

Thanks Neph and boys.

Sorry to hear that, Wombat, and my apologies for the flippant remark. I thought that your comment was merely self deprecation.

Depression can be tough. I don't understand it (and hopefully never will), but a member of my family has it so I know it's more than just "sucking it up". It's all about better living through chemicals. :)

Yeah good luck Wombat, just try to think about what you do have, PMA! (positive mental attitude), you've got a lot to be happy about so just try focus on that, and try to get your ass back in the F22 again if possible. :thumbsup: .

Well I can understand Wombat's absence in regards to this forum layout and looks.
It actually zaps my will to post presently, and the same happened to another forum that updated to the same software... In short... Mission failed by the creators of the software :P

Well, they want to brush up the front end just to make it SEEM like they have done something.
Sadly with this it makes me wonder that they haven't fixed much on the backend.

I'd like to kick someone up the backend for changing this site, people get used to it and find it a comfort like Wombat, you change things FOR NO REASON WHAT SO EVER and that will turn people away!, stop fanning on with this site because you think you need to look like your being paid for doing something. :P
