  1. Someone called Enigma on youtube asked me about the basis of the calculations. The code is available on github at the link I provided with MIT license, so anyone can get it and do anything they want with it, provided they keep a copy of the license. Basically this calculator gets your plane's heading and speed. Knowing the wind's speed and heading it calculates the relative wind heading which you must input in the bomber sight. It is just getting the difference between two vectors. It does NOT take into account target altitude or QFE or whatever, just the speed and heading. The rest is up to you Cheers!
  2. Totally on purpose. That squirrel looked funny at me
  3. Hello all, After a long time with no videos - waiting for an upgrade to provide decent video quality - I present you with an idea brewing since Bodenplatte release
  4. I've updated the engine spec sheet with missing planes from Bodenplatte. I have not included the Me-262 since I don't think it fits this sheet due to totally different operation of jet engines.
  5. I have this on github with MIT license, anyone can use it. It's javascript (inside the index.html page), you'll probably just need the calculate_heading function. Cheers!
  6. Hehe. So in fact wind speed does not do anything. I left it there for two reasons: 1 - to have everything you need at the result section (even if it is not changed) 2 - I like knobs
  7. Simple one page sheet with the engine management specs for all the engines in IL-2. Info taken from IL-2’s plane technical specifications, provided here in a printer friendly format. Download PDF file Sample:
  8. Try checking your settings in Point Tracker Settings->Camera->Point extraction Play around with the threshold slider and min/max sizes, if those are not correctly set you will not see anything in OpenTrack.
  9. A quick update: I've tried to make it more smartphone friendly and now if your screen is under a certain width (in pixels) it will only show one knob (plane hdg, wind hdg, wind speed) and you can switch between them with left/right arrows. If you have problems let me know.
  10. Hi all, Made a very simple wind heading calculator for use in bombsight mode. It is a simple web page with javascript, so it runs well on mobile phones or tablets (at least android). https://spiff.ddns.net/il2bcalc/ Github project (relevant code is Javascript inside index.html) https://github.com/nunoi/il2bcalc Some screenshots below Normal mode for regular screens Small mode for mobile Cheers!
  11. Captain Spiff has become totally obsessed with the Spitfire Mk IX. He takes it for some spins.
  12. Captain Spiff takes his brand new Spitfire Mk IX to the skies over DED EU server. Chaos and mayhem ensues.

    Fooling around with the Spitfire VB in portuguese livery.
  14. Nice video with great explanation of what and why is done by you. Good job.
