  1. I think the faux Hakenkreuz is a fair compromise as a completely blank tail would look more out of place in my opinion. It definitely stands out more on Finnish aircraft but I don't think there is a better variation of the symbol that could be used.
  2. I've found the enemy AI a little more competent than before but my allies (at least in the Bodenplatte career) are absolutely useless most of the time.
  3. Though I haven't had a fire spread to the cockpit yet I must admit getting bounced while I'm not paying attention has made me nearly jump out of my seat on quite a few occasions. That's probably why that officer told me to keep my head on a swivel back at training...
  4. As others have said, not all planes have lockable tail wheels. The best way to check is to look at the technical info for your particular aircraft in the panel to the right of the map screen (the one opened with 'O' by default). The list of info at the bottom usually says if the tail wheel can be locked and how it is achieved.
  5. Thanks for all the hard work from the dev team, pleasantly surprised to see this update so soon.
  6. Nice skins guys, I'm particularly happy to see the F2b (my favourite WW1 kite) get some attention.
  7. Woohoo! I'd pop a bottle of Champagne if I still had the money I spent on IL-2 modules
  8. Wow, the new map looks stunning. I can see myself spending hours just doing an aerial tour of the whole thing. Also that Flakvierling is going to give me nightmares.
  9. We're so close! Look forward to going for a whirl in these machines, hopefully in some cooler weather - my PC got so hot sometimes this summer it sounded like an Me-262 was taking off right beside me.
  10. I have no doubt we'll get a skin for the 'Grand Charles' seeing as we already have Clostermann's spit. If not then I look forward to the amazing job the skin-making community will do with it.
  11. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fclioqmtqnc2tij/Sherman III Anzio 44.dds?dl=0 This is my first skin attempt so feedback is welcome and encouraged.
  12. I like the idea of uploading your own picture for the Career Mode purely because the avatar generating system it has now is horrific and most of the pilot portraits it generates look very odd and mismatched.
  13. I would love to be able to fly evacuation missions. Perhaps even a random chance for enemy AI to ignore you if you have the Red Cross on your plane?
  14. In regards to the enemy AI seeming rather stupid, I think the career mode generates enemy (and friendly) pilots with varying AI difficulties in order to simulate a realistic ratio of new pilots to veterans. So the majority of the pilots will be in the easy to normal range, fairly incompetent and easy to shoot down. Then you will sometimes run into veterans with a higher skill level that represent more experienced pilots who know their kite inside-out and pose a real threat. The only problem is that even the higher-level AI in Il-2 leaves much to be desired, otherwise it would be a very good simulation of WW2 aerial warfare.
