Ya, I did a search to see if this could add to the already made topics but most are older or confusing to follow. So decided to make a officially released post in gaming. I’m loving it, thou a lot to learn… will be spending a lot of time with it.
Here’s the official trailer:
IL-2 Sturmovik: Tank Crew - Clash at Prokhorovka. Official Release Trailer. - YouTube
and a new features kinda trailer… both official.
IL-2 Sturmovik: Tank Crew. Visualized Rough Terrain and New Gunfire Graphic Effects. - YouTube
Confusing to you, perhaps… Ok, and for me.
Yeah, good idea!
I own TC, but I haven’t played it much… Must go and check it out.
Hmmm a tanks sim eh? Color me curious, but wait $70…is it worth $70?
I mean are we talking all buttons push able type sim or flaming cliffs 3 type sim?
Commanding a tank in Vr is awesome, standing in the top hatch of a tiger, when you have another player as your gunner is brilliant
All I can say about Tank Crew is that I own every single one of the Great Battles modules and I prefer Tank Crew over every one of the flying modules. For me it has been worth the pre release pricing. I predict within six months or possibly less that Tank Crew like every module before it will be on sale for 50% off as other newer modules are released though.
It’s the same as what gave FC vol. 1 release status, just a while ago;
The devs have delivered all they said they would.
And I know how you feel about FC. I, as you know, don’t see it that way. But this is about Tank Crew.
That’s the point I was making. I started this thread because every thread about Tank Crew so far has turned into something different, like this. But It’s OK… I do understand. But I rarely flight sim, and don’t see me in those threads saying that.
BTW, BOT I’m thinking of broadcasting Tank Crew tonight, not that I’m good but more to show those who don’t know or may just be interested what’s in it and how it seems to work. Twitch… GotYourSixGaming . Thinking around 8.
@Magnum50 is that 8 zulu or 8 est?
sorry… eastern. And if you have questions or want something shown… I’ll have chat open.
I might join you for that. I’ve been hovering in and out of interest on tank crew but wouldn’t mind a look at the updated version
I’m probably going to wait for it on sale. As I see more on it, it does certainly intrigue me. @Magnum50 I may check out your stream to check it out. I’m still chugging away with Panzer Elite and Steel Fury, so something updated would certainly be nice.
If you happen to be in the US and are interested in selling it off, let me know, I can always use more scale armor to drive around our neighborhoods hike and bike trail
If you ever want a new home for that…give me a call
And therein lay the rub. The fact the RoF is still as popular as it is killed any chance FC had of making a go of it. Jason has admitted he completely underestimated how much blow back he would get over FC from the RoF crowd.
I agree that Tank Crew is not going to be for everybody but I happen to like it quite a bit. The improvements and additions from where it started to where it has ended were all in the correct direction for me.
Thanks for broadcasting @Magnum50 I stopped by but with my wonderful internet and a girlfriend watching Hulu and 2 kids on separate consoles downloading and streaming stuff my internet couldnt keep up lol!
However I saw the beginning, It looks interesting but not enough for me to drop $70 on right before Cyberpunk 2077 comes out. I will keep it in mind though,
Thanks… ya, that’s what I said in my end summary. If you love WW2 tank action then it’s worth it, if not so much. Wait for a sale.
Pretty much I showed that you have internal views and outside views, but to answer a question, no button or switch moving, all keyboard, mouse or stick controlled.
2 campaigns, both pretty good where it’s a joint operation but you just deal with your orders. Nice to see IL2’s coming in to assist. about a dozen missions, plus the quick mission option.
I love it… enjoy the battles thou can be a little too drawn out getting to them. Drive 15 mins fight for 5, drive 15 more…repeat.
I had an employee call in sick, covered their shift, so missed the stream. Mags, any chance that you will make it available to watch later? Twitch newb here, so it’s very possible that I’m requesting the impossible.
Does it have a mission editor where you can make your own missions?
Should be still on my page for 14 days.
