I'm against planes either suffering "critical hits" and crashing or hitting the ground and crashing. I'd rather claw my eyes out than have to pilot a bomber to be sure it gets there. I want my planes to look good and fight good and anything beyond that is a waste of CPU time. Planes being ...

Sam. Nearly thirty. Do I belong here?
