[COLOR=burlywood]My mom's alive and well. Just messing with your head. :lol:

U dont have 2 download the thing if ya dont want to. DUH

Uh, so I'm just supposed to stop playing DC if by some horrible twist of fate they actually decided it'd be a good idea to put a B-52 in? How about no.

ANd i am not 1 of those ppl who cant fly a heli.

I bet you are actually. The problem with people that can't fly is they THINK they can or they just don't care that they're terrible at it. But you could be a great pilot and I hope you are. :D

If u wanna even the side out we mite as well giv da iraqi's biological, chemical and (courtesy of N. Korea) atomic weapons. Happy??

See, now the difference between what I said and what you said is that my comments had some accuracy to them. Your "suggestion" is just plain goofy. Biological weapons would be a stupid idea. People DO keep asking for nukes by the way, in various DC .4 threads. I think that'd also be a terrible decision. These things wouldn't add one bit of balance to the game and would also take away from what realism already exists.

And i didnt ask u to try and piss evry1 off

No but I'm good at that. Besides, the only one that seems bothered by what I said is you and now we're having this fun debate. :thumbsup:

U coulda just said u didnt wantcos it would make things unfair without the need for sarcasm.

The sarcasm came because this is the umpteenth time I've seen someone ask for a B-52 and it's already been discussed, discussed again, discussed some more, and then some more. After repeating myself so many times, I leap into sarcasm mode. Take it with a grain of salt. While it may not sound like it, I say half of this stuff only semi-seriously, heh (but my opinion on the B-52 remains true).

So 'friend', what other changes would u want to make it fair??

Not once did I say anything about making things fair. I'm talking about balancing a G-A-M-E out. You want to play a game where one side has automatic weapons and you've got fire, a toothpick, and some dental floss? No. Why? Because there's no balance and in turn, there's no fun in it. Desert Combat needs balance to be an enjoyable game, adding a B-52 will be great for the Coalition, but it will really throw the scales off in terms of gameplay. If you like having 20 people on Coalition and 6 brave souls on Opposition, this B-52 thing is a wonderful idea. Not my idea of a good time however.

And let me ask you this.... since when has WAR been FAIR?

Let me ask you this, since when is this a realistic war and not a game? I say again, it's not a training sim. It's not realistic. War is ugly, grim, and probably the worst manifestation of mankind's existence on this planet. I play a game for fun, not as some sort of military training exercise. God help anyone that can't make that distinction.[/COLOR]

It could be made as one of those little mini-mods like the chinook thing. That would stop it from ruining DC for those ppl who didnt want it. I honsestly wouldnt wanna mess up sum1's game jus 4 the sake of havin a B-52, and like i said, a mini-mod will sort that out. Also, i have discoverd that some ppl are bringing out a mod with a B-52. I understand what you mean about it being unbalanced, and in hind sight a B-52 would unbalance it way too much. I was hyper on the last few posts anyway. Is early in morning now, so i am a little calmer and more rational. lol.:eek: Oh and, my heads too screwed o be screwed round any further. lol. A nuke would be kinda silly i reckon, cos it would destroy the gameplay a little too much, and i imagine this is how u see the B-52's. Am i rite? or i have just made things worse?

[COLOR=burlywood]Next time you want to add some comments that you forgot, use the Edit button, man. Thanks.

Anyway, glad you can see how the B-52 might throw balance off more and I agree about nukes, it's just a laughable thought. Besides, when's the last time a nuclear weapon was used anyway? Now, a B-52 mini mod I have no problem with, I was even going to suggest that earlier but ended up not bothering, heh.

Dental floss strangling.. :lol: It could be the next big thing in Desert Combat![/COLOR]

There is a new mod with b52 under development, and DC is working on the B1B and Tu160. Other mods are working on the same aircraft
