How do you download 1.2? I see this page, but no active links on it.

That is strange.  I clicked on your link and took me to page where the 1.2 link works fine. 
I know that if you are unregistered the links on that page don't work. 

That said, I'm still working on figuring out all I need to know to get these mods installed.  Doesn't look like an easy process.  :'(

ahhh, probably cause I'm not registered.
Exactly. The links become active once registered to the forum.

Can someone explain to me why they would consider BOS less of a sim than CLOD?  I play both and would never have made that distinction.  I find myself playing BOS and its add ons more because of the development that been done, but still play CLOD a bit.  I just don't see the difference.

  I think its a matter of focus rather than game mechanics that impact play.  DCS seems like more of a sim than anything else I play, but it also works better overall so its hard to gauge.  For me CloD Blitz is more or less perfect as far as it goes, but I agree, its only slightly more of a sim (judging by all the options I never use) than BOx -- where I use more of what's available.

After reading this, I'll be reluctant to complain about BFC's upgrade process.  Doesn't mean I won't, I'll just feel guilty doing it.

That would be a mistake. This is much simpler.

Because CLOD is broken beyond belief and it's made slightly better by Blitz

No?

I'm not 100% on it because I gave up on CLoD because it was broken. I then downloaded Blitz because I heard it fixed shit and whilst it did, it appears there's some issue still. My daughter's BF was playing it (far more than I have) and said there were lots of glitches - and that was with Blitz installed

I just remember CLoD not only being broken but an absolute shadow of what it was meant to be. I'm not talking about what gamers thought it would be - but what they were actually led to believe it would be.

While a good rant, doesn't really answer the question of why CLOD, BOS, or even DCS would be considered better sim than the other.

Hit me up on steam, and I'll walk you through it step-by-step.

That's my feeling too.

BTW @Destraex my "observations" were a little more pithy than they should have been - apologies.

I guess the "how sim is a sim?" question is pretty subjective after a point.  My personal take is that a sim should give you a glimpse of what the real thing was/is like.  For me, the study sim is like a hyper-realist painting - highly detailed but a little flat and soul-less.  RoF/BoX/CloD I see as a piece of Impressionism - you could argue that it's a little fuzzy around the edges, but it does give you a feel for the occasion.

As I said that's just my view.  I can fully see that some will only be happy with a sim when they know they have to throw all the switches and so on. For me, however, once you have solid FMs, high fidelity doesn't trump the sensation generated by the graphic and audio artists who use their smoke and mirrors to put you in the cockpit.  And, at the moment, I think the guys at 777/1C are the best at that art.
