  1. Dude, I was about to start a similar topic myself. I've started a Bodenplatte Career, flew 2 missions - the P-47 in this sim is a joke! It's a pig made of glass. What's even more funny - I ran a Quick Mission on 10000m in P-47 against a Bf-109 G14. So at that altitude the Jug has to run circles around the 109, right? Wrong! The 109 could outclimb and outturn me. This is ridiculous! Even down low it's too porked. I'm going to run some experiments tomorrow, fly quick mission battles in Il-2 and A20 against 109s and compare it to the Jug. But I already imagine the results. IMHO, the Jug is incomplete and needs serious rework in both it's FM and DM. I ran the similar quick mission in 1946 in P-47 D27 against Bf-109 G14 at 10000 meters. I ran circles around it. Even though the AI in 1946 is even better than in BOX. I think it pretty much sums it up.
  2. Oleg Maddox, man. The guy really knows how to build exciting sims.
  3. Career is too repetitive and boring. Same thing, no mater Allies or Axis, same set of missions, just change of decorations.
  4. Graphic effects need serious overhaul - bullet holes, tracers, tracer smokes, etc. I hope they will take care of that in future.
  5. Some cool fast melodic thrash metal And just beautiful melodic instrumental
  6. I'm flying La-5FN in Kuban at the moment. Yes, it's very powerful, but it's less enjoyable to fly and shoot. The huge nose covers your enemy and those synchronized ShVAKs have low rate of fire. Yaks are more agile, fly smoother and it's easier to shoot from.
  7. Yep, especially the razorback.
  8. Damn, that's my favorite US fighter and it's quite porked in this sim at the moment. I hope the devs will take a close look at it's FM and DM.
  9. Well, at least in some games that's not the case, like in Red Dead Redemption 2, for example.
  10. Personally, I'm more interested in Japanese aircraft. This is very subjective. For example some people here find Hurricane ugly, but for me it's quite beautiful plane. Regarding the PTO planes, to me most Allied PTO aircraft are ugly, but Japanese planes are beautiful.
  11. The damage model in 1946, although not as detailed as in GBs, looks way more realistic in certain aspects. For example, aircraft don't loose wings that often, although they still go down, you can damage landing gear hydraulic/pneumatic system so that they will drop, etc. In some aspects it actually looks better than the GB engine. And it's less cartoonish, that's for sure.
  12. Regarding the Japanese aircraft, I wonder what kind of information is missing? The info on engines, armament? The specs? So specs of Japanese planes say in 1946 were just some wild guess? Or it's more about their specific systems, like the way you operate flaps, landing gear, bomb sights, etc?
  13. I think 8KX would be the best option considering it's price, resolution and FOV.
  14. There are a lot of cars with modified exhaust in my area. From cheap ones to very expensive ones. Personally, I enjoy the exhaust rumble and occasional backfires. Music to my ears.
  15. Looking forward to fly various Japanese aircraft. Early, mid and late war types. Fighters, bombers, ground attack, flying boats. I hope we'll have them in GB series one day.
  16. I used zero sensitivity for all axes up until recently. I was feeling that something was not right about the aircraft behavior. They were too wobbly and jerky. This was especially pronounced in VR. Even the slightest movement of a stick or rudder pedals was very noticeable. I watched a lot of videos of real aircraft and I noticed that they don't react that fast, they have a lot of inertia. So I decided to tweak sensitivity settings. I set 85% for pitch, about 40% for roll and 100% for rudder. Now it feels way more realistic, as if the plane actually has some weight and it's not an RC model. I must add that those settings are working fine for Baur's flight stick and rudder pedals. Other controllers might need different settings.
  17. I'm playing Career at the moment. It got harder to fight against enemy AI but I still manage to score kills.
  18. Damn, looks like Steam devs had been bitten by Microsoft WMR shit-doers. This tendency of fucking up things for the sake of releasing new builds has to stop.
  19. I really hope that among other significant issues, the tracers will be changed as well. Right now they are too large, look very cartoonish. When you're firing 20mm cannons it looks like as if you're launching unguided rockets instead. And those lazer beams suit some space arcade rather that combat flight sim. They should be toned down. Even in 1946 tracers look way more realistic.
  20. IL-2s had Mikulin AM-38 engines. Klimov engines were installed on Yaks, LaGGs, Pe-2s.
