  1. I think that people care more about the aircraft themselves rather than the overall operational/strategic situation. He 162, Do 335, and to a lesser extent certain Ta 152 variants are very unique aircraft with configurations not yet featured in the series. That's what draws people to late-war or fictional/exaggerated scenarios. Meanwhile, many props used by the Communists in Korea were developments of existing WW2 aircraft that most just don't find as exciting. Not that it wouldn't be a cool scenario anyway...
  2. The GTX 750 Ti is weaker than the recommended GPU in the minimum system requirements, so an upgrade may be the only option for good performance. The CPU could also be a problem depending on the specific model. 8 GB of RAM should be fine if you're only running Il-2. Try to set all parameters to their minimum values.
  3. That is what I've experienced. The Mission Editor Manual says the following:
  4. Yes, AI tank gunners depend on logic set up in the mission editor to work. This is not present in all missions. Tank commanding is currently under construction as described in the developer diary, so we can expect it to improve significantly in the future.
  5. Not necessarily. See this statement: However, the map is WIP as winter textures still need to come according to the Bodenplatte announcement. Therefore, it's possible that some things will change before the final release.
  6. Be sure to get a motherboard with a Z390 chipset for overclocking and higher memory frequency support. RAM such as 3200CL14 or 3600CL16 will give you a small but sometimes significant performance boost over the standard 2400 or 2666 parts.
  7. No, they don't. Only a small minority of Americans work multiple jobs [1]. From recent college enrollment and loan figures, it seems that most young people have not incurred student debt [2], [3]. Real income in the 15-24 and 25-34 age categories has actually gone up [4]. Americans are spending record amounts on video games [5]. While economics certainly plays a role in shaping the genre, I don't think that recent trends can be explained by a lack of time or money among consumers.

  8. Jason already made his position on comms quite clear.
  9. The landscape mesh on Prokhorovka has 16 times the density. Buildings and other map objects are also more detailed. Therefore, the system requirements are higher unless you lower some settings. More info here.
  10. Not sure what you mean. Did you run the launcher and does it fail to update? If you need to reinstall, go to https://il2sturmovik.com/download/.
  11. If you purchase Bodenplatte, you will get immediate access to the P-47D-28, Spitfire Mk.IXe, Bf 109 G-14, Bf 109 K-4, Fw 190 A-8, Fw 190 D-9, and Me 262A. You will be able to use them on all the maps you currently have access to (depending on the game mode). Later, you will get access to the Western Europe map along with all the other features of Bodenplatte as they are completed.
  12. There likely isn't much give in the other direction (it's really hard to say exactly because the graphics driver just does whatever it feels necessary). In fact, it could even get slightly worse because you may want to increase graphics settings with the new GPU, and certain settings do use a bit more system RAM. However, running Il-2 right now on a machine with 8 GB doesn't give me any significant performance issues, although you never know what the next patch will bring (it would be interesting to try the official "4 Gb+" system requirements currently listed on the website). You could grab another similar 8 GB module to add to the current one for an inexpensive upgrade. Running at stock speeds, this shouldn't cause any problems.
  13. Not to worry. I could have avoided a few silly purchases if I had carefully considered the actual requirements. For most practical purposes, VRAM and system RAM are separate. The GPU can use system RAM, but access to this pool is so slow that it's not very relevant.
  14. Yes. Running Windows 10, maximum settings in Il-2, quite a few browser tabs, and several documents in Photoshop. 7.8 GB used. I've never seen Il-2 come close to exceeding 8 GB.
  15. What display device are you using? You probably shouldn't be getting poor performance with your hardware. Start by checking the GPU usage while playing Il-2 (GPU "3D" plot under "Performance" in Task Manager). If it's not close to 100% most of the time, one of the following is probably happening: The game isn't demanding enough to stress your system and it hits the FPS limit without any trouble You've encountered a CPU bottleneck Since you have an i7-8700K, I wouldn't expect case 2 unless you're using VR or low monitor resolutions. Check your settings - disabling Target FPS and VSYNC should increase the load. Maybe you can try higher graphics settings. There are a few other things that can cause weird boosting behaviour, but they're much less likely.
