  1. I was playing DCS with a friend once and noticed that when he said he was looking at me, I saw his pilot's head also looking at me... thought that was pretty cool. I know it doesn't actually work this way, but a couple times when I was getting shot at from behind, by natural habit, I'd sit all the way back and duck down in my seat as if I'd have the full armor protection in a plane like a Bf109.... it'd be pretty awesome if that actually worked!
  2. The A-20G would be amazing. Between having two belt fed .50's in a rear turret, plus replacing the .30 caliber ventral gun with a .50 M2, there'd be no excuse for it not being as good as the Pe-2 (other than direct 6 when blocked by the rudder). Also some had six nose mounted .50 M2s, with about 350 rounds per gun instead of the measly 200 rounds per gun in the B model, and could be outfitted with 12 M8 rockets. It's too good for them to not do as there would be relatively little work to do versus an all new bomber. The thing I don't understand, is why is it not already equally
  3. Thanks. I hadn't purchased the Yak-9 yet so I wasn't aware of it. I edited my post to add it to the list. I assume the 9T also has it?
  4. I know this has been discussed here before, but I wasn't able to find the topic, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out here. Just as the title says- I have lots of user created missions and campaigns that no longer work after the game has been updated, and most of them have not been updated on their original threads that I downloaded them on. How do I update these? I was under the impression that you would just open them up in the mission editor, and then re-save the file, but when I tried to open them just now, I would get a message stating "Error reading mission fil
  5. What about planes like the MC.202, P-47, and P-39? Were the versions without the wing MGs official subversions? I've also heard that in the 190 A5, the outer wing MG/FF 20s were standard, and it was a field mod to remove them.
  6. I agree, and have mentioned elsewhere before that they should create new collector's planes such as the Ju-87 D5 and A-20 G, as they have already done the majority of the work for the flight models, interiors, etc. As far as your question regarding when was the Mk-108 introduced, (I assume you mean on the Bf110 G-2), I remember being told once that the reason it didn't come with that option, was that it was not used specifically in the battle of Kuban. Personally I hate that, and it almost sounds like a lazy excuse; like no one would care about using it in other scenarios other th
  7. ^^He's right; exactly what I was going to say. And how often does the Bf110 G-2 with 37mm get into dogfights where they do head on attacks? Whenever I take the 37mm, I try to avoid dogfights at all costs. I find it odd that it would be argued not to have a historical armament, because of a theoretical (and rare even in game) possibility, claiming "historical accuracy be damned."
  8. Not just weight savings, but the location of the weight is the most crucial part in my opinion. It's one reason why the A-8 has such a slower roll rate than some of the other Fw190s. I would love this option; it's one reason why I enjoy the A-3 so much. I'm surprised it's not an option considering how good of a job they did giving us so many variants of the A-8.
  9. For the same reason as you mentioned, I changed mine to "Left Ctrl + Left Shift + E" This way I never accidently eject. I also made it slightly different to raise my landing gear, to avoid hitting the button on the ground and having one wing fall to the ground. BTW, I assume this isn't realistic? What would happen in real life if you tried to raise the landing gear in these planes while not moving on the ground?
  10. Regardless of the topic of listening for other plane's engines, I do wish we could open up the side window, exactly like many other planes in this sim such as Ju88, He111, A-20, Pe-2, P-38, P-39, etc. It could help you possibly see slightly better, just like people do when they open their canopy in a plane such as the MiG-3, LaGG, La-5, Hurricane, etc. When I first purchased this game a few years ago and noticed that these planes had this feature, I was surprised that the 109 did not.
  11. I figured that this HAD to have already been suggested as I've talked to numerous people about it, but when I searched just now, I did not see any topics on it. So for my suggestion, which would be a very high priority for me, would be give the Bf110 G-2 the Mk108 option, that replaces the four 7.92mm MGs. I can't express how much I would love to have this option; I feel like it's an absolute must have!
  12. Really surprised no one in this thread has mentioned invisible trees bug. That is one of the worst bugs I have dealt with.
  13. I have personally noticed that the Jagdpanzer is incredibly easy to destroy with just .50 cals from something like a P-47... while I do not know exactly how armored these are, I'd suspect that they wouldn't be easier to destroy than the other German tanks. Either way, I would appreciate having something like the Jagdpanzer as an AI tank in your server, just to give us some more variety.
  14. The download link no longer works. Is there somewhere else I can download this from?
  15. There's a few servers I've decided to check out recently that I had never tried before, and some of them look pretty cool and well thought out, and some implementing ideas that I hadn't seen before; seems like a shame that they are almost always empty. My main question is if anyone knows of a thread, website, etc. where I can find information on these servers? I searched but haven't found much of anything. Or if there isn't a website or thread about them, and any of you are familiar with any of these, I'd love to know more about them. Aces over Europe 2 AC - Les
