FuzzDad said:RO:O: How incredibly hard it is to play as a newb in RO:O. I can pick up just about any fps and handle myself fairly easily but not so w/RO:O. My time is precious so it's tough to make a committment to a game like this. I think this is the single reason why player counts are not really high.
As a flightsimmer, you should know this is nothing compared to learning VOR to VOR navigation, ADF Nav using triangulazation, DME timing and ground-speed calculations, dead reconing, structural and carburator icing conditions, airspace restrictions, radio opperations, and IFR conditions and ILS landing.
Not to flame you here or anything, please dont take it that way, im just saying it could be much much worse
On the whole DoD/RO thing, you know, i loved the mod days of DoD, it never had the level of realims i wanted but somehow, it was just plain fun! i cant say the same for this new Source version however, to me, its lost its spark, it feels like Quake with tommyguns, i wanted to like it, but i cant.
RO on the other hand, is exactly what a realism nut like me allways wanted, and the eastern front theme just makes it all that much sweeter.
