  1. Past hour
  2. Very much looking forward to this map
  3. If I was young I could just go drunk for 67 days.
  4. "Hear Hear", I don't get that there's any fun in relentless ground attack missions in fighters but, "each to their own", I certainly don't whine at other people for the way they choose to play but other people call me and my wingy "Vulchers", technically incorrect as a vulcher attacks things on the ground, we are "hawks" as we take our prey in flight
  5. I must be missing something obvious... Can't get "Auto Connect" to work. I can connect to the SRS server manually, but: Where on DServer side would I configure "auto connect" at all? Can't find any other thing than to setup the url to connect to. No specific "auto connect" setting as much as I can see... On Client side, the IL-2 SRS Client app has three icons: Server - VOIP - IL-2 When I connect to the SRS server manually, "Server" and "VOIP" show green/connected. "IL-2" icon stays black and disconnected, no matter what I do. I couldn't find any SRS setting in my IL-2 Client game, did I miss something? Maybe I should add that my game is the Steam version. Mike
  6. But the canopy did have sliding window panels port and starboard.
  7. Would be nice if you could skin these fellers too, and a programmable on/off road column of refugees could be also adding realism in other IL2 environments like Stalingrad ..
  8. Ja, ist schon alles immer viel Geld. Hoffe, das VR-Zeugs wird bald allgemein mal etwas günstiger.
  9. Aaaarrrgh... those last minutes of the sale... You promised yourself you were OK with your last purchase, no need to come back. But... Those last minutes...
  10. Is it possible to have planes cover ships? I would like some aerial cover for an invasion fleet. What if the ships are individual objects, that is not a formation? (quit using that a while back as it seems to help behavior). Command Cover > Target Link to each ship or would just one ship be sufficient as they are tightly grouped? If that ship were sunk, (there will be ground artillery at the beachhead defending), would that break the Cover Command? Once beachhead defenses began shooting at incoming ships would the cover planes attack the ground artillery or would separate logic be needed for that? Command Cover > Object Link to Plane formation Leader TIA
  11. Aircraft ID is on my "to do" list as I was taught an easy technique to identify airplanes with the acronym WETFUS years and years ago (Wings, Engine, Tail, Fuselage, Undercarriage, Special Features). Like everything though I wish I had more than 24hrs in a day. It may not come out next week or the next but it will at some point.
  12. the turn would be tighter and it would have a save oversteer when you take a corner too fast are then engineer sheeple like, the blind man following another blind man for centuries
  13. Yes, very excited about this as well. They were so firm about no infantry before and must have changed their minds. A good sign that the Devs are indeed flexible. Bring on the goodies!
  14. 150 octane impacts all engine modes though. Continous power in the 47 with 150 octane is up around 50 inches of manifold which gives it much higher cruise speeds and climb rate. Combat power (15 mintes) with 150 octane is 65 inches of manifold so you can maintain higher speeds for a significant period of time. And then you have the Wep at 70 inches MP which gives you an extra 200hp as compared to wep with 100/130 grade fuel further boosting performance. I find that the P-47 with 150 is a great preformer and i will confidently take on any german prop plane with 150 octane (especially in the D-22 that thing is a beast). And im having no issues with the guns. I run it at 340 meters convergence and usually a short burst is enough to secure a kill. And yes the way the timers work are not perfect but that is true across the board and not something unique for the P-47 (Though i do wish you could regen WEP time with time spent in combat mode like in the German fighters) So i find the P-47 (D-22 especially) is highly competitive with 150 octane.
  15. There is no problem. All of these sights work the same way. The gunner, and this was part of his skill, needed to keep in mind two things. He needed to know the scale of each small triangles side. This gives him an object of a known size at a know distance. Lets say in this case the size of a 1 meter object being viewed at 1000 meters. Then the gunner has to have an idea of the dimensions of the thing he is targeting. Lets say in the case of a KV-1 3.3 meters wide, or a T-34 3 meters. Now he compares the size of both objects to estimate distance. If the thing being targeted is bigger, then its distance is less. If the thing being targeted is smaller, then it is further away. The Sfl.ZF.1a had 5x magnification with an 8 degree field of view. So the tank in the image above is further away then it actually appears in the image. A T-34 at 1000 meters should occupy the distance between two triangles which includes the space between them if the scale is 1 at 1000. In the image above, we can see that it occupies a little more than 4 (meaning two triangles and the two spaces before and after them + a small part of the third triangle). Its distance is estimated to be about 750 meters. It was well known in the day that the gunners probability of hitting the target went up after the first salvo, or when the commander helped with target identification and range finding with his scissors periscope. In my second QM run in the Ferdinand I selected tanks, and had no problems knocking out all of the 8 KV tanks shooting at me. I really like the job they did with the Ferdinand. Beautifully modeled.
  16. Evolving weather is really amazing. I have just played 4 missions but I am loving it. I didn't expect an il2 destroying ju-52, and mission routes are better than longer ones in Sea Dragons.
  17. That 262 pilot was a little high ...
  18. What did you guys call this function back in the day then? May be with some key words I can try to search for those threads myself.😄 Thanks for helping.
  19. Guess this got lost in all the VR questions? Can TFS possibly shed light on the answer? Thanks in advance.
  20. Schon. Aber ich bin es jetzt leid zu warten und gegenüber meiner ollen Lenovo, die zum Einstieg aber perfekt gewesen ist, verbesser ich mich ohnehin enorm. Und 500 war eigentlich meine Schmerzgrenze. Die G2 liegt dann beim regulären Märchensteuersatz bei 600. Und ich werde nicht bis 2022 warten, daß die G2 dann für 500 zu haben ist.
