  1. This guy takes some amazing photographs of warbirds and other vintage aircraft. Here is a link to his DeviantArt page: https://www.deviantart.com/daniel-wales-images/gallery/ Have a look.
  2. Semi-historical USAAF desert paint scheme. Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0eqx105y0wr8c3v/A20B_usaaf_desert.zip?dl=0
  3. I actually think its rather simple to use... Of course, none of my missions are probably presentable. But I usually just use it to make fun little scenarios for my amusement and I've managed to make it do everything that I want it to. The manual is very helpful. The only thing that kind of bugs me about it is once you start adding more and more assets the window starts to get really cluttered. You can filter the icons but you still have a spider web of circuit connections to sift thru and I'm constantly paranoid something isn't hooked up the way I want. I'd like for it to be more streamlined but if you streamline it I feel like it will start to lose its functionality.
  4. A 3D model of a Zeppelin-Staaken R.XIV I did in Blender not long ago. The DLZ-129 Hindenburg, also in Blender. An unfinished concept I have in Blender for a single seat, super high-speed, high altitude level bomber. No defensive armament or bombardier. The pilot flies the plane to the target, then activates an autopilot and aims the bombs using a bombsight between his legs.
  5. Opening Il-2 GB to actual modding could potentially kill many, many birds with one stone. Imagine getting modules for Il-2 GB the same way DCS gets some of its modules. Independent developers selling aircraft, campaigns, etc. And also the potential for free (but also lower quality) aircraft. Nobody would require you to have them. And for multiplayer, you would have to play the game with mods-off. Its why Il-2 1946 is a sim from 2006 that is still popular.
  6. The 410 would be awesome. Don't think I've ever seen it in any sim.
  7. After watching one of my favorite YouTubers talking about some leaked aircraft for Warthunder recently by somebody that apparently has worked on some of the aircraft models for Il-2, I happened to find his Deviantart profile and I found these. One of them was titled "retired Il-4 cockpit for Il-2 Battle of Moscow". Unless I'm mistaken, it looked like we almost got the Il-4 for the Battle of Moscow expansion but was rejected in favor of another Pe-2 version. Really breaks my heart if this is the case. I would have much rather have preferred the Il-4 over another Pe-2. Heres a link to this guys Deviantart account if you want to see for yourself. This guy has apparently done 3D models for Warthunder, DCS and the Il-2 series. https://www.deviantart.com/psy06/gallery/ Again I could be mistaken. But if I'm not, I'd love to see this maybe pulled out of mothballs and maybe released as a collector plane someday.
  8. Don't get me wrong I'm not opposed to better control options. Even better I wish GB had actual clickable cockpits. That's probably the only thing I liked about CloD. It's just the controls the way they are now don't really bug me that much. But that's just me.
  9. Just be glad this isn't like DCS where you're fumbling around the 3D cockpit looking for the actual switches and levers, and separate bindings for each individual airplane. ๐Ÿ˜„ I don't get what's so hard about feathering the props on these planes. It's just select engine, shut down, push Ctrl-F, select the other engine, boom. Done. ๐Ÿ˜‹
  10. Heres my Ju-88 with feathered props. This is the first time I've managed to do it. I was shot up and had all of my fuel drained so the engines quit. I was trying to glide back to shore so I fumbled around and finally found Lft-Ctrl-F activated prop feathering. I was surprised I had never got it to work before. I'm going to try and replicate it by flying and intentionally shutting down an engine and seeing if I can feather it again.
  11. This was brutal. After lighting his plane on fire he pulled up thru a loop, near the bottom of the loop he started to bail out, and just as he was about to pull himself out, the plane exploded. He hit the water with his arms still dangling out of the plane... A U-boat leaving port. Airfield defense.
  12. Yah I agree. We have what like 6 Bf109 versions but the Hurricane wouldn't add anything new? ๐Ÿ˜„ And yeah its a bit of a shame there is a lack of Brit aircraft. I'd love to see the Hurricane. I've always had a soft spot for it.
  13. Well for the AI vehicles it wouldn't mean just the trucks and jeeps it would also potentially mean the AI only tanks and AAA trucks. Instead of making the AI vehicles "drivable", I think a better thing to do would be to make a "Combined Arms" expansion for IL-2 the same as what DCS has. Having a simple RTS aspect to the game allowing you to direct AI vehicles and aircraft using the map. Driving individual vehicles would be an added bonus. But still I'm pretty sure Combined Arms is DCSs least popular module as far as I'm aware so there's no point in trying this. Though I personally would love to see it.
