  1. Your technical expertise on this matter absolutely exceeds mine. I just think we‘re „missing the forest for the trees“ when we say that an AS isn’t likely because of what you mentioned, whereas the bigger issue is that this plane needs something more than just a canopy and MW-50 to differentiate it from the G6 CP and G14, respectively. I totally understand that this plane could basically just be a CP G6 (w/Erla canopy) with the justification that new players to the GB series need a 109. However, I believe that Jason knows that his core of supporters bought both BoBP and the G6 CP in the past. A G6/AS (I.e. a G6 Late with DB-605AS and, ideally, DB-605ASM as available engine mods) is an excellent answer to this issue.
  2. If they can clip the wings of the spitfire and add various canopy options to aircraft, the cowling is 100% doable.
  3. Good idea, and whether or not one is a „fan“ of the 109 shouldn’t matter when considering this.
  4. What’s his speed, and what’s yours? The pursuit curve you’re on has nothing to do with the G you’re pulling. You could be pulling 9 Gs with your nose in lag... Edit: grammar
  5. You’re right, it’s not a big deal. A G-6/AS makes sense from historical (BoN + BoBP), gameplay, and sales standpoints. Not sure what people think they’re going to lose by including it.
  6. I bought the 9, I'm going to hold off on the 9T (since I'll probably fly it a handful of times in the QMB, if ever). What I'm really hoping for is improved cockpit textures over the Yak-1 / 1b.
  7. I wanted to quote this so that some people can read it again. I'll leave it at that. And as the family's December budget is finalized with money for BON and collector's planes added in, I'm off to make that purchase...
  8. What’s the weight difference between the D-22 and the D-28? Is the D-22 just your run-of-the-mill overweight gal, or are both obese?
  9. D-22 for sure. If it’s good enough for the fellow in my avatar, who am I to disagree.
  10. This is fantastic news. I understand the excitement for the Pacific, but leaving Western Europe after one installment would have been a shame. As Shamrock said, this map will link wonderfully to BoBP. A Mossie and Typhoon and Me-410 will make fantastic tactical bombing platforms. American Razorbacks are a huge wish granted as well. And given that I seem to always go back to LW birds over time, the late G6 and A6 will be great and ensure that scenarios can remain historical. I’m excited to fly Western Europe online where every fighter isn’t boosted into oblivion (150 octane, K4, etc.). @Jason_Williams, God bless you and your team for the passion you bring to projects like this, and don’t let the (somewhat understandably) disappointed pilots ruin the enthusiasm for this.
  11. Regarding the Dora, what’s the proper way to set the temp for cowl flap actuation? I’ve left it at the default in quick missions (as the specification tab seems to recommend) and the cowl flaps are open pretty much right from the start of my flight, even at reduced power settings. Am I missing something, or does the Jumo just run really hot? Also, was the A8 cooling ever fixed?
  12. I’ve owned a Vive Pro, pimax 5K+, Index, and Reverb. Vive Pro: great OLED screens, but terrible lenses. Pass. Pimax: FOV is great but it’s expensive, FOV stretches resolution (pixels per degree) out, and janky PiTool software. It also gave me a headache no matter how much I fooled with IPD (their IPD calibration is off to say the least). Index: great all around, phenomenal audio. FOV is a good, LCD screens are of high quality (not much color loss compared to Vive Pro). This is my current favorite despite the lower resolution compared to Reverb. Reverb: resolution is great, but that’s it. Smaller FOV than the others, built in audio is poor, and lenses are decent (meaning the “sweet spot” is small). The resolution bump between the index and reverb (with the former supersampled to the latter’s resolution) is noticeable, but honestly isn’t THAT big of a deal to me personally. LCD colors seem a bit more washed out than the index. I used the Reverb for about 6 weeks but I’m now back to the index. Both are great VR HMDs and, money permitting, I think the choice is between these two.
  13. Battle of (whatever gets us a Typhoon and Mosquito), please.
  14. Yes, move the SS slider up to 2160 x whatever (steam won’t let you set exactly 2160 for both). 188% on video tab, or 188% for il2 if video is set to 100% (just double check the resolution per eye if you choose the second option).
