  1. Nice! Would be nice if they made the bomber version as well. While your at it add the bombsight to the P-38 “Droopsnoot”! Since they get an Arado, it would be nice to get some kind of late war fast level bomber.
  2. Since they are creating the cannons for AA vehicles; I wonder if they will eventually take the cannons off the trucks and let us take control of the stationary cannons to defend the objectives? Or... take control of the AA guns on AI vehicles! Jump onto the cannon of an AI vehicle in a convoy. Go along for the ride on the top of the train to defend it from attacks. Imagine being able to take control of the guns on AI ships! If the Pacific ever comes along, how awesome would it be to take control of a gun on the AI ships and defend them from dive bombers, torpedo planes, and Kamikazes! You could recreate a Pearl Harbor scenario! Include some controllable guns in the base game for free, like the two tanks. Then for a price you can control all the other cannons and flak guns on the AI vehicles.
  3. Will you be able to spawn into an AI truck which is part of a convoy that hasn’t been destroyed and take control of the guns and steering? Would be nice for the servers that have convoys that actually move deeper into enemy territory from the start of the map.
  4. Nice if they did axis for flaps or radiator for the planes that had that set up. Like the flaps of the P-51 and radiator for the SpitV.
  5. I recently got two 1070’s running in SLI. I get random black screens that last for about two seconds while the game is running. The symptoms looks like the monitor was losing signal. It only happens to IL2, DCS runs fine. Is this a know issue with SLI? Any fix?
  6. Would it be possible to make it that your G tolerance increases over time for your current virtual life? It would make your virtual life more valuable! It would be nice if it was a gradual increase to Ace status. Make it something that takes a few day/+40 hours (of fighting not straight and level flying) to accomplish. Instead of based on time flown make it based on total amount of G’s pulled in that current virtual life (In order to avoid people pressing auto level and going afk to time build. Make it something difficult to accomplish! Only those who make the best decisions will be able to get Ace G tolerance.
  7. I think positive G’s are just fine. Like others said negative G’s need to be increased. I’ve been able to do a negative 180 degree loop and not red out. Make better breathing sounds to give people a better sound indication of when they will black out. With better sounds and visuals the g meter would not be needed.
  8. Any changes required FM changes, including 150 octane. I know plenty of guys who would gladly trade their guns to lead a flight (in a Droop Snoot) of P-38s with guns and bombs to a target at high alt. I would gladly lead the bomb drop. This would have a huge impact on gameplay because it gives players the ability to bomb from high alts with a late war plane (some people do not own Kuban for an A-20) This plane will force the Germans to go up high where the American planes perform better. I assume the weight of the bomber plus bombsight is roughly similar to the weight of the guns and ammo which are removed.
  9. No, never fired. Some will disconnect before you even pull the trigger. I’m talking about those that realize they are in a bad position with two or three planes diving on him and disconnect before anyone even gets a chance to shoot at them. I have also seen a player dive into a dogfight shoot down a single player, realize he just jumped into a fight where he is vastly outnumbered and disconnect a few second after his kill.
  10. I’ve seen this happen many times to myself and others. Nothing more annoying than diving on an enemy airplane to see it disappear (disconnect) once it notices that you are moving into shooting position; then that same player log back into the server two minutes later. I suggest there is 30-60 seconds of mandatory auto level from the moment you press “disconnect”, with the option to cancel the disconnect by moving the joystick if you notice someone attacking during that time. It will prevent players from taking advantage of the system to avoid the death on their stats.
  11. Let’s not forget the “Droop Snoot”. Another good reason for the P-38J to be a collector plane.
  12. I see some people complaining about plane visibility on other threads and how zoom is unrealistic. I don’t have issues spotting when using the default zoom. It’s when I zoom out for a better field of view that contacts become difficult to find. My monitor is an old 24inch 1080p. What would you guys think about the statement below. Make the default view the maximum zoom with the ability to zoom out for wider field of view. Then give us binoculars to look for distant targets. The tanks already have it in game so all devs have to do is apply it to the planes. Pilots used binoculars. That would make it more realistic!
  13. It seems like I’m the only person in Hawaii that plays this game? Servers are mostly dead when I can hop on for a sortie. Any other players out there on the islands that would want to wing up sometime?

  15. Too bad! I was hoping western allies could have bombers other than the A-20. It would be awesome to have a Mosquito and P-38 “Droop Snoot” with a bombsight to counter the Arados. I know some have requested the Droop Snoot, unfortunately it seems there isn’t enough interest in adding it. Fights could be dragged into higher alts with those two! It might quench the high alt bombing for bomber pilots until a proper bomber is created.
