  1. I would just like to add to the gratitude already expressed by the community here by saying I'm very happy with the frequency of the recent dev diaries so far this year. It still feels like Bodenplatte only just released yet you guys are already working on Normandy and some very exciting collector planes, not to mention improving on the sim in its current state. I always appreciate developers who are transparent and willing to work with their community and the IL-2 team are high up in that list for me.
  2. Manual is definitely better. Automatic RPM control just seems to make the engines freak out a bit. Maybe I fly it a bit too agressively.
  3. I agree, but I've always loved the duck since IL-2 1946 just for being such an underdog. Now all we need is a b-3 so we can play with that under slung 75mm cannon.
  4. I'm one of those people who never quite got the hang of the P-40 engine management, so I imagine I'll have more success in the Hurri just because I'm less likely to blow the engine up. Also, I'm excited to try hosing down targets with twelve .303s. None of those fancy cannons or .50 cals for me, thank you.
  5. Hey look, if there's anyone not excited to try and knock a V-1 over with their wing-tip then there's something wrong with them.
  6. A Bristol Blenheim, either mark I or IV would be nice for a potential Finnish front expansion. And if this wish fulfillment ignores any obstacles to large, 4-engine aircraft then I would love a Short Sunderland, especially since the Normandy map would provide the English Channel to fly it over.
  7. I'm pretty sure the number of AI gunners has been given as a major obstacle for adding heavy bombers to the game by the devs.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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...
  11. 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.
  12. Nice skins guys, I'm particularly happy to see the F2b (my favourite WW1 kite) get some attention.
  13. Woohoo! I'd pop a bottle of Champagne if I still had the money I spent on IL-2 modules
  14. 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.
