  1. I tried the Ju 87 and the Ju 88. LCtl + D starts the dive and the recovering. As I understood it it should switch the whole system on or off. What is the purpose of this redundant LCtl + D command? I do not always want to recover from the dive as soon as my first bomb is dropped. Apart from that I hope this is a step forward to the implementation of the StuVi for the 88 and the 87.
  2. Hi Hycel! I hope you are doing fine. Thank god forced mortability in europe has significantly decreased since then. Let all of us hope it stays like this. Even if the "bill" is not balanced.
  3. This map is wip. The phisical topography is very close to the real thing and you can really recognize the area, but the map still looks a bit empty. The Velikie Luki map shows a rather realistic and convincing representation of a town with a train station. Now imagine multiple Velkie-Lukies next to each other and you will understand how taxing a realistic repesentation of the Rhineland will become in regards to computing power as well as manpower for building it. The free terrain tiles are most likely placeholders and I guess they will be exchanged subsequently. I did not check the mission builder, but on first sight we lack specific architecture modules representing the coal and steel producing industries. As you can see in the film many of the huge industrial complexes are situated in the open landscape on the border of the towns. Landmarks like Villa Hügel, Dortmund Union Brewery etc. imho are a nice task for the modding community.
  4. The upper yellow 4 and blue twelve are amazing skins. But I think the weathering is a bit too much. They look as if they have been drawn out of the mud recently. Think about the actual age of the planes when they were deployed in combat. Weathering is a great skill, but do not let yourself be carried away by it. Less is more. Overall the sharpness is too high. Rivets, scratches and patina sticks out too much. I appreciate the skill and industry of depicting the material and texture of the surface. But these planes look like they are 75 years old.
  5. It is just the start date of the current "Tour" usually a tour starts every month. This tour continues on and on.
  6. I do not get it anymore and could joine KOTA now.
  7. When I try to join a server I either get "mastetrserver connection lost" or "user has been banned". Please take a look into it.
  8. I got a question about cities. Are cities a bombing target, i.e. do they contain objects which one has to destroy?
  9. There are three german level bombers: the He 111 H6, the He 111 H16 and the Ju 88. In regard to engine management they are pretty much the same. Just watch your revs and temps. The Heinkel has water and oil radiators while the Ju 88 has just outlet cowling shutters. The Heinkel water radiator can be put on a lever while it's oil radiator requires button or key commands. I find the engine mangement quite easy. The most critical phase in flight is the take off where you want to change from take off to climb settings quickly. You also have to take care not to overcool your engines while you are decending from a high level. The Heinkels are easier to handle on the take off run and do climb better during take off than the 88. The 88 has to pick up speed before you begin to climb. Since He 111 H 16 has stronger engines and carries a heavier bombload, I would recommend it. The He 111 H6 is also nice and it's instruments are a little bit easier to check since they are arranged closer to each other. If you like you can join us on fridays (19:00 utc) and sundays (18:00 utc) we fly bombers and ground attack airplanes of all nationalities. DBS Discord
  10. You can get the ground elevation from the mission editor at least. Just put an object on the map, align it to the ground and move it across the map. The y-coordinate shows the elevation. The finnish virtual pilots server provides recon photos with height data for their bombing targets on their stats page : http://ts3.virtualpilots.fi:8000/de/faq/ There is a catalogue of the airfields on the stalingrad map which also contains height data:
