  1. Hi gents, Are there was any official or non-official guides or workflow tips for map making/editing ? I'm more specifically wondering about what input data is required (DEM, land-use, etc.) and how to feed it into making a terrain. I'm quite handy with the GIS softwares needed for this kind of data, but I have little clue on how to put it into Il-2 practice. Thanks, and happy 2021. EDIT: just figured it would be at a better place in the mods forum. Feel free to move if so.
  2. Time for them to switch then!
  3. They gave some good news a couple of months ago. Not every step of game/mod development is public news worthy, trust me. I wouldn't worry about it.
  4. Hi guys, just a message to share my hopes and wish you the best for your project. I guess I'll have to visit the Ilmavoimamuseo and try it out in their sim cockpit once it's done. Paljon kiitoksia työstänne!
  5. On the "settled" and "WEP doc requests" bit: does it regard the 601s or the 605A? On the 605A/G-6, it is indeed important to underline the time frame, and the two aspects of the WEP use on it: - complete ban of the 1,42 ata boost use, with provisional 1 minute limit (supposedly never enforced because the 1,42 ata setting simply was not allowed on the aircraft with manuals describing this provisional time limit) - use of the 1,42 ata setting allowed, with no time limit mentioned on the manuals for aircraft with cleared 1,42 ata. Now, it does not mean the engine is invincib
  6. Bold text is more than necessary since after dozens of pages, many do not seem to understand black and white text, i.e. on the 109 manuals... Where did I say that? Did you read my whole post? I selected the parts you missed. Fumes explains very well while a hard limit is a very poor feature, even as a stop gap. I shall also modify my post, "satisfactory" meaning being "temporarily satisfactory".
  7. It actually is quite unreasonable since autumn 1943 flight manuals mention the 1,42 setting allowance *without time limit whatsoever*. There is no reason why these documents would omit such an important engine management information for the pilot. Now I'm not saying the engine shouldn't be damaged from abuse. The thing is, this hard time limit is nonsense and unsupported for 109 G/DB 605 with the 1,42 ata setting allowed, as it was gradually from mid 43 One modification at 1,30 and another at 1,42 without limit as currently implemented (like La-5(F)) would
  8. Your reasoning looks like cherrypicking. Your document shows a ban of the 1,42 ata setting (ist blockiert). ⇒ The time limit is not a factor since it was purely banned. There is no time limit to enforce if the setting is blocked! There are on the other hand evidences from autumn '43 mentioning no ban, nor time limit. Why would these manuals omit such a crucial limitation for the pilot? Why enforce one single setting when multiple ones were around at the same time? Both settings co-existed, it is a fact. The best solution would be, IMO and in
  9. Can you please, I don't know, actually read the manual.... For DB 605, the 1 minute limit was never applied because pre-mid '43 the setting was banned. On later manuals (post-mid '43), the setting was allowed (read: not banned anymore), and there was no time limit. I mean, we've gone thouroughly through all this since a couple of months now. That kind of post assessing stuff without even looking closely into what is written on the documents you present as evidence doesn't help much.
  10. Well for that reason they could have gone IL-2 1946-like and make a 'Bf 109 G-2 late (1,42 ata)'. .. well I'm glad they didn't. But my point is both G-2 and G-4 (w/ the same engine, DB 605 A) were concerned by the 1,42 ata boost bans and clearance. I wish they would have gone the same way than they did with the La-5 w/ M-82(F) and propose both banned and cleared boost engines as a modification. It's a shame to have the G-2 blocked some time in early 1943 when we know that a bit later and possibly within BOK timeframe it was cleared for 1,42 ata. Similarly, it's a shame to have only a dep
  11. What kind of data do they look for regarding the VDM prop ? I might have access to archived (Finnish) documentation with some on the VDM, and my Russian is too rusty to decipher what they need (and Google Translate might be misleading).
  12. the whole (valid) point of this thread is that the 1 minute figure, the 1, is nonsense.. and we are not talking about "DB60x", as you seem to incorrectly generalize.. but the 605 A specifically. I have not yet dug into the 601 characteristics and how it operated to have an opinion on it, although it appears it was more restricted on boost power than its later brother. whether an temporary removal awaiting an accurate engine model is a wet dream or not is your very own judgement.. it does not invalidate the fact that it would be the best way to get rid of this unsatisfactory current model.
  13. No, a tracer round is merely a standard round for a small tracing pyrotechnic charge. They are as destructive as standard ammo (i.e. API vs API-T).
  14. It does a job, but it's definitely not a marvel of precision.
