Berloga duel & dog fight server in Multiplayer Servers and Hosting Posted 29 minutes ago · Edited 27 minutes ago by CountZero 30 minutes ago, Butherbird said: Hi Guys, I am new to this sim, really enjoy it. My compliments to the developers. May I ask someone why the late model BF 109, g4 to k4 have been modeled with such fragile engines? I am aware one can not operate their engines at high power settings for long, but while playing with the engine set at 85% I get a sudden and destructive engine failure every single time. Coolant temp does not yet reach 100"c then bang!,no more engine. This makes these fighters very uncompetitive in my view, and one is very easily overcome by P51 and Spitfire mk9. I might also be doing something wrong. Regards Devs still didnt fix messages that are in game to inform player that he should stop using emergancy combat power setting, or when its recharged. So you cant know when game wonts you to stop using it , real pilots didnt have to worry that their engine will blow up if they go over recomended times so there was no timers needed but in game when Devs decided for this to be so stricked they have to fix messages that are in game (they are buged and only work when instrument panel is on, not like all other techmessages that work all time no mather of settings in realisam options). So until they fix this your basicly have airplanes with random failures as there is no way for you to know that game wonts you to stop using emergancy or combat or more importantly that its fantasy recharged like in mario games. Stick to airplanes without emergancy timers is your best bet. 14 minutes ago, H_Stiglitz said: @Butherbird You have 1 minute of emergency on 109 g-4 up to the g-6. 85% is emergency. It breaks after that timer. On g-14 and k-4 it is 3 minutes at 85% and your engine takes damage. those timers are just how it‘s modeled in game On g14 and K4 emergancy is 10min last time i check, but again if they dont fix buged tech chat messages regarding this players will always be confused and not be able to use airplanes like they are ment to be used, they will either avoid random failur airplanes or not use power settings to max alowed because of fear of braking engines what is totaly unrealistic as thouse timers were recomendations and real pilots didnt care if they stic to them... when we have them in game because its game then players deserve to be properly informed when to stop or get recharg for it like all other 42069 tech chat mesages that work.
