  1. Afaik: you stop the re-fuelling-process yourself, just use the re-fuel-button again. Re-arming will result in a as-spawned-load-out - no choices, use re-arm button and wait until finished. Don't forget to re-load the guns! Repair will be activated automatically as soon as you cut the engine within the repair-area. https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/60247-refuel-repair-rearm-not-working/ https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/54285-anyone-tried-rearm-repair-refuel/?tab=comments#comment-826233
  2. Mal im Ernst - eine für mich richtig gelungene Crossover-Mischung waren die frühen Linkin Park Alben "Hybrid Theory" und "Meteora" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVTXPUF4Oz4 Diese Mischung aus ruppig und melodiös - dazu abwechslungsreich und sehr gut produziert - ist schwer zu finden, für Nachhilfe in der Richtung wäre ich dankbar. Die üblichen Kandidaten in der Richtung wie Korn oder Slipknot sind mir zu trash-lastig - übersteuertes Gitarrenschrammen plus Gebrüll geht gar nicht. Die jüngere britische Musik von New Wave, Punk bis Brit-Pop darf bitte auch auf der Insel bleiben.
  3. Bin ich gar nicht richtig gegen ... aber: ein Hybrid wäre schön: die Texte von dem Rapper-Gör mit der bescheidenen Stimme (ist nun Mal so) gekreuzt mit Gesang und Musik von Jennifer - das wäre ruppig. Könnte sich Wladirostok nennen. But now something completly different: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3XNfLd78TM
  4. Bis heute Nacht nicht ... mache gleich Mal einen Versuch ... nee, meiner hält die Füße still.
  5. Ist der Bremspropeller aus Holz oder Carbon? Das erste ist nicht sein Ernst? Das zweite hat Potential, aber es gebricht an Relevanz. Nach 3 h Balgerei bei den Finnen braucht es Gewicht: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88b0OYxdtyM (Remastered - ein echter Gewinn) Für den geneigten Vergleichshörer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-PylmHxSTo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm832iUmL6Y Ein Urteil?
  6. Confirmed, we had that issue, too. Flying an attacker campaign with 109 early Moscow.
  7. Für den Anfang: ein Flugfeld
  8. Sadly that topic is a pain over years now. Railroad transport has been the backbone of WW2-logistics in Europe. Just a few corrections and add-ons and it would be so much more easy to simulate logistics, the flow of supply. It would bring campaigns to life, offering campaign-mechanisms, meaningful targets for bombers, escorts and interceptors.
  9. Next to growing up with proper names and parrots I've seen your young ladies learn some further basic. Well done! Boxing they need to learn early, too. Few weeks ago I told my firstborn to practice some boxing on me like she was a little one ... won't do that again. I earned some large blue-green bruises and she was shaken about her punch.
  10. I'd be interested in the damper, too. Please let me know the details - thx!
  11. Mein Stichwort - Musik von "Langhaarigen Bombenlegern", wie das bei Onkels und Tanten hieß. Noch eine Generation älter sprach von "Negermusik" oder "Negerjatz", wobei das ohne Ansehen der Musikrichtung den großen Bogen von Glenn Miller bis zum Krautrock überspannte. Lange Haare waren unpraktisch, Bombenlegen war nach der Bundeswehr völlig abgesagt - Krautrock bleibt. Da bin ich neulich über das hier gestolpert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agmtVASe1Hw Grobschnitt 2019 unplugged reloaded - klasse Konzert. Da wird Vattern ganz rührselig! Eigentlich geht das so: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2mun_VJ4gM&list=PLEvqtKA9ywkNQbrIYMu6vdjavHil6UZeP
  12. Be careful with your wishes: "Beginning with production blocks D-22-RE and D-23-RA, a larger (13- foot diameter) paddle-bladed propeller (either a Hamilton Standard Hydromatic 24E50-65 or a Curtiss Electric C542S) was fitted to make full use of the additional power provided by water injection. It added 400 feet per minute to the climb rate, but during landings and takeoffs there was only a scant six inches of clearance between blade tips and the ground. Takeoffs and landings must have both been hair-raising. " http://www.joebaugher.com/usaf_fighters/p47_4.html Nice details here: http://www.368thfightergroup.com/P-47-2.html http://www.368thfightergroup.com/P-47-R2800.html Never seen any direct confirmation on the reason to introduce the AO Smith-blades - was it a further improved performance or (at least partly) the need to shorten the blades? The need to take off and land in a more or less perfect 3-point-landing-configuration was not that ideal for front-line service.
  13. That should not influence your connection that much. If you do not have the chance to fly by ethernet-wire (mostly because of ladies refusing a 15 meter cable winding through the living room ...), try this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HomePlug That's fine for me over years now, usually not more than 1 to 3 ms ping time loss and - in my environment - not influenced by hoovers, drills and hair-dryers. If you need to go with WLAN, try to avoid "meshed"-set-ups with repeaters etc. And switch off any "automatic optimisations" like channel-movements, cross-over from 2.4 to 5 GHz and else gimmicks most of the modern WLAN-routers offer. That might be nice for standard utilisation, but you need a non-stop low-ping connection without any interrupt by WLAN-optimization. (btw: short communication breaks via WLAN during to-days endless corona-video-sessions might have a reason in those "optimizations", too)
  14. Here's a simple test mission, two alternating NDB - my Fw-190 A-8 is doing fine with it. Direction and distance are ok. ndb-test.zip @danielprates geeks produce lovely unfashionable websites, too https://www.cdvandt.org/ They implemented a "Google Custom Search", too! Enter "youtube" and it's easy to reverse-engineer the youtube-number-code! Next time I'm in the Netherlands I'll try to visit that treasury.
  15. The wonderful radio-freaks from the Netherlands made nice video on the original instrument and it's function: If you're into old radio-technology, please take a look at the other videos. There's a lot of WW2-radio-stuff you never ever have seen in that form - working! The background-noise etc will give you some impressions how it must have been to work under those conditions. Try to imagine sitting for 8 h or more in a very small room together with that noisy radio equipment. Or flying 3-h-sorties blowing that radio-background-noise LOUD right into your head(-set) to overcome the engines noise. I'll be done just by that. WW2-radios etc
